Such doings by Carter have continued into the War on Terror.
With Jimmy Carter, the duping by despots during his presidency has continued into his post-presidency. It is not a record of “superior” service.
Please understand, I’m not trying to be mean. But self-serving claims like Carter’s should be answered. Intentions are one thing, but results are another. The Carter record should neither be celebrated nor emulated.

The president described the attack as “an act that drew on a long history of bombs and arson and shots fired at churches, not random, but as a means of control, a way to terrorize and oppress…”
In the 1980s, I was an unrefined adolescent from blue-collar Butler, Pennsylvania. I knew nothing and cared nothing about politics. I had no idea if I was a conservative or a liberal, Democrat or Republican, or much of anything else.
“In Bin Laden Announcement, Echoes of 2007 Obama Speech,” declared the headline in The New York Times.
It’s difficult to find a newspaper that has demonstrated a worse pro-Obama and anti-Bush bias than The New York Times, especially when dealing with the War on Terror.
Former president Jimmy Carter told NBC News last week that his work at home and abroad has been “superior” to other presidents.
“I feel that my role as a former president is probably superior to that of other presidents,” Carter assessed. “Primarily because of [my] activism and the injection of working at the Carter Center and in international affairs, and, to some degree, domestic affairs.”
