HONOLULU (KHNL) - A  University of Colorado professor whose essay compared some September 11th victims to a Nazi leader was fired Tuesday.

The essay by Ward Churchill also led to an investigation of research misconduct.

Churchill spoke at the University of Hawaii in 2005.

Churchill wrote that some "technocrats" killed in the World Trade Center were like Adolf Eichmann.

Three University of Colorado faculty committees had accused Churchill of plagiarism, falsification and other misconduct.
