Jimmy Carter by Mike Evans

Jimmy Carter by Mike Evan
This book defines Carter’s meteoric rise in national politics, his ability to portray himself as one who always sought the high ground while nursing a spitefully mean streak, and his skillful political demeanor based on hyperbole, insincerity, and sometimes utter sham.  President Jimmy Carter’s ill-advised execution of human rights guidelines not only directly resulted in the ouster of the Shah of Iran but ultimately caused the loss of more than 600,000 lives during the Iran/Iraq War. These guidelines implemented rule by the mullahs and ayatollahs, were eventually responsible for Iraq’s attack on Kuwait and Desert Storm, and spawned the Soviet incursion into Afghanistan, the rise of the Taliban, al-Qaeda, and Osama bin Laden. Finally, they led to the destruction of the two World Trade Center towers on September 11, 2001, with the deaths of nearly 3,000 innocent civilians.
