I concede you on this point....However:
Without full knowledge of inside information, the jury is still out on how much authority Carter really had to call the shots. This may be knowledge he will take with himself to the grave. Especially regarding the Afghanistan mujahideen issue started by Zbigniew Brzezinski reptile...Do we know for certain CIA hadn't tied Carter's hands?
Reason I raise this question: Everything about Carter's anti-Zionist statements after he was out of office contradict Brzezinski policies. He isn't under same amount of pressure from CIA anymore. He doesn't factor into any policy decisions. Surely, Brzezinski appointment was CIA influenced.
Now if my premise is indeed true, you might counter with: So what? "Commander in Chief, Executive", should be able to call the shots etc.
If you do, I preempt with my own counter-argument: Once again, how much do with know of all internal details, whether Carter could stand-up to the CIA? We know even Reagan didn't stand up to CIA during Iran Contra, Nicaragua-Central America mess. Last President to truly stand up to CIA was JFK, and everyone knows about his fate.
Immoral funding of Military Industrial Complex by Federal Reserve and US taxation system must stop!!!! End illegal/unconstitutional wars! Preserve US currency!
