Chutzpa: Carter as an Iran expert

Some of you may be too young to remember that in 1979 the gormless Carter administration allowed the Ayatollah Khomeini to overthrow the regime of the Shah and institute the nightmare known as the Islamic Republic of Iran, which began by allowing student fanatics to take US embassy personnel hostage. Carter is apparently so old, that he forgot, and he has the temerity to offer his opinions about Iran:  Carter: Iran not yet a realistic threat to Israel
Carter said:
"Iran is quite distant from Israel," Said Carter, 83. "I think it would be almost inconceivable that Iran would commit suicide by launching one or two missiles of any kind against the nation of Israel."
Inconceivable, but the Iranian run Hezbollah launched hundreds of rockets against Israel.
