not sure, is he talking about Carter? Did you go to the NewsMax site and read the article?
I'm not sure if this is a misquote or what. There was no such election in the US in 1979. Mid-terms were '78 & '82.
The Iranians had a little event that year, as I recall, but other than Carter setting the ground work for 9/11 I don't remember an election.
Oh, yes: I lay >>>ALL<<< of the blame for 9/11 on Carter. If he'd invaded and laid waste to Iran for being a pirate nation we would not face emboldened terrorists today.
