Longtime Carter aide resigns, accuses Carter of plagiarism and errors in new book...(but you knew that, right?)

Ahh, Jimmy Carter, the foul, failure besmirched Israel hatin' gift that keeps on giving...

Today, in the midst of ex-President Carter's swing through the dinosaur media to promote his latest screed, Kenneth Stein, the Carter Center’s first executive director and founder of its Middle East program, sent a letter to Carter and the media that was a mite critical of the ex-president.

According to Stein's letter, Carter's new opus, “Palestine: Peace, Not Apartheid,” was `replete with factual errors, material copied from other sources and simply invented segments,' according to an excerpt of the letter published by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

`Aside from the one-sided nature of the book, meant to provoke, there are recollections cited from meetings where I was the third person in the room, and my notes of those meetings show little similarity to points claimed in the book,' Stein wrote.

Carter's response, through a spokesmouth was that he stands by the book.

Glad to see I'm not the only one who noticed the charge of plagiarism.

And thanks for you kind words about my Council entry.
