The White House has ordered U.S. intelligence agencies to produce a worldwide study of Moslem religious movements in the wake of the Islamic revolt that helped drive the shah of Iran from his country this week, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee was told yesterday.
Administration officials disclosed at a closed-door committee hearing that Zbigniew Brzezinski, the president's national security adviser, ordered the study. These officials emphasized that the existence of the request was considered highly sensitive by the administration, because of the growing political impact of Moslem fundamentalism in many areas of the world.
The Carter administration is being charged in Congress and elsewhere with a major intelligence failure in discounting the strength and importance of the Iranian protest, which was spearheaded by Moslem religious leaders.
Asked about the report of the White House ordering an intelligence study of Moslem fundamentalism, Sen. Frank Church (D-Idaho) said that after "the intelligence failure" in Iran, "I have to wonder if we are competent to manage an intelligence gathering program on anything."
Wonder what the reaction would be if President Bush ordered such a study.
Uh, no link? Grrr...
Paid archives. Hence no link.
Well... some source for this would be nice... even the page where u request the article...
Ah yes... Another chapter the cult movie Americathon, starring John Ritter, was based on!!! Funniest danged movie I ever saw!!! It's time to revive it before we get stuck with a couple more dopes like Carter/Moandale in the form of Harry Kerry/Edwords!!!
Well, Jimmy showed his ignorance by allowing the Shah to be deposed and thus radical Islam gained it's first county in the middle East.
What? You doubt this is truth???
Don't doubt it... but having an actual source is important for debate, no? :)
About the only intelligent thing Carter did.
So said the illustrious, camera-hogging senator from my home state (at the time) while he was busily tearing down America's intelligence organizations.
Truly a dangerous, seditious democRAT.
Now, maybe if Drudge, or Rush, or Hannity, or Hewitt, or Will, or Buckley, or Cheney, or (put your favorite here) picks it up...
C'mon...do you think the poster just made this up out of thin air?
Interesting study, considering Mr. Carter called Khomeini a kind religious man and helped drive Mohammad Reza Pahlavi from power in Iran.
No one did more to destroy America's intelligence capabilities, other than Carter, besides Frank Church.
And Gorelicker under Hitlery's tuteledge!!!
Can we get this to Sean Hannity and Bill O'Reilly?
