Your history is a little off.
If you're referring to Operation Eagle Claw itself, then you're associating President Carter with the planning and execution of a special forces operation, insinuating that it was he who crashed the aircraft into one another and caused the colossal embarrassment of a military operation resulting in no fewer than three new military commands to be named to make sure something like that never happened again.
Then again, if you're making that
claim, then you also need to give credit where credit is due in Obama's record vs. Osama bin Laden and his #2. You cannot have it both ways.
If you're referring to it being Carter's fault for the entire situation in Iran to begin with, well...you're also wrong. This is a pretty good clarification of Carter's role in the whole thing. If you really want to go down that road we can blame it all on Ike in '53.
Of course, neither you nor any of your whatevercon friends will read the links. Or what I typed. Or history books.
