Oh Jimmah

First came news of former Carter Center Executive Director, and current Fellow, Ken Stein's resignation (his actual letter can be found here) and now reports are coming forward that an additional 14 board members of the Center have handed in their resignation all because of their beliefs that President Carter has crossed the line into a world of "malicious advocacy" with his latest book, Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid.

Even professors being invited to work with the Center are starting to turn down the offers out of disgust.

All this due to a book that's been so highly criticized by Middle East experts and book reviewers alike that if it weren't for the authors personal background it wouldn't even have passed muster if handed in for a high school paper.

LGF has more including news that Carter has finally agreed to speak at Brandeis University. Of course that was only after they changed the format from a debate with Alan Dershowitz to a simple Q&A. Apparently Mr. Carter didn't think a well respected Harvard Law Professor who also happens to have written 3 books on the Middle East, it's history and it's politics, was educated enough to hold a productive debate with.

Last one out don't forget to turn off the lights.
