CNN Anchor Lauds Jimmy Carter as Expert on Iran And Bush’s Iraq ‘Blunder’

The media’s fascination and love affair with Jimmy Carter apparently have no limits. CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer interviewed the ex-president on Tuesday’s “Situation Room” and cited his knowledge and experience of dealing with Iran:

Wolf Blitzer: “You know a lot about Iran. You spent the last 444 days of your presidency focusing in on the American hostages.”

Jimmy Carter: “I remember that.”

Blitzer: “I know. I remember it very well. I think everyone who was alive remembers it, as well. This is a regime — basically, the same people who were in charge then, who took over for the shah, are still in charge right now, led by a supreme ayatollah, who has been meeting today with Talabani, and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad met yesterday with Jalal Talabani, the president of Iraq.”

Carter: “Yes.”

Blitzer may remember the event, but it’s unclear if he recalls the botched Carter rescue attempts, including one that left eight U.S. servicemen dead. If he did recollect the event, the CNN anchor certainly didn’t bring the subject up.
