He was in over his head from Day 1 in foreign policy, much like Bush [but for different reasons]. He meant well in the Middle East but sometimes you make deals with the wrong folks and the ripple goes on for generations.

Good to be back. I have been traveling for a bit. Went to Europe for 10 days and then Florida for biz. Heading back to Florida for the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona at the end of the month. I have been online but not on OT. Just enough to keep up with tech topics.


Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

I consider him "good man, bad President".
Second Teutone's welcome back. Glad to hear all is well with you.

I love how people talk about something they don't know anything about. Our misguided policies in the Middle East stem from before Carter and continued after. Carter lost Iran, but there were things going on that were out of his control. He really had nothing to do with the rest of the Middle East's fall.
