Further evidence(if needed) that Jimmy Carter is a slug

Check this out at Powerline. Excerpt:
Being a former President does not give one a unique privilege to invent information or to unpack it with cuts, deftly slanted to provide a particular outlook. Having little access to Arabic and Hebrew sources, I believe, clearly handicapped his understanding and analyses of how history has unfolded over the last decade. Falsehoods, if repeated often enough become meta-truths, and they then can become the erroneous baseline for shaping and reinforcing attitudes and for policy-making. The history and interpretation of the Arab-Israeli conflict is already drowning in half-truths, suppositions, and self-serving myths; more are not necessary. In due course, I shall detail these points and reflect on their origins.

I will add one thing: "Having little access to Arabic and Hebrew sources", my ass. Carter has access to damn near anything he wants. 'Lack of sources' didn't undermine his understanding, the little bastard understands it just as much as he wants to, i.e. "The nasty Joooos are responsible for everything and get in the way of us sucking up to muslim tyrants and murderers".

I despise this man.
