The fool is an utter embarassment. He's still trying to clean up the mess he made in the Middle East when he was president. He is personally responsible for the terrorism in the Middle East today by his incompetence in handling the problem in the 70s. Many in Israel refer to him as "The Father of Iranian Terorism." Carter threw the shah of Iran under the bus and cuddled up to the ayatollah Khomeini. Carter viewed Khomeini as more of a religious holy man in a grassroots revolution than a founding father of modern terrorism. Carter's ambassador to the UN, Andrew Young, said "Khomeini will eventually be hailed as a saint." Carter's Iranian ambassador, William Sullivan, said, "Khomeini is a Gandhi."
We know what happened - the shah was assassinated and Khomeini's mobs held Americans hostage for 444 days. They released them just before Ronald Reagan was inaugurated, knowing that he'd nuke them.
