If you remember The Wizard of Oz you will recall that Toto, Dorothys dog, pulled back the curtain, revealing that the wizard was just a little guy working a panel of sound and light gimmicks to fool people into thinking he was more omnipotent than he really was. In the same way, the Presidents killing of Qassem Soleimani and the aftermath reveals the four-decades-long treatment of Iranian terrorism and Israel by the foreign-policy establishment -- our presidents from Jimmy Carter up to now and Congress -- was based on myths.
The brilliant Caroline Glick makes the case.
For the past 40-odd years, two narratives have guided American Middle East policy. Both were invented by the Carter administration. One relates to Iran. One relates to Israel.
Both narratives reject reality as the basis for foreign policy decision-making in favor of delusion. Over the past two months, President Donald Trump has rejected and disavowed them both. His opponents are apoplectic.
She begins by reviewing the takeover of the U.S. embassy in Tehran in 1979 when 52 Americans were held hostage for 444 days.
If President Jimmy Carter acknowledged that the "students" werent students, but soldiers of Irans dictator Ayatollah Khomeini, the US would be compelled to fight back. And Carter and his advisers didn't want to do that.
So rather than admit the truth, Carter accepted the absurd fiction spun by the regime that Khomeini was an innocent bystander who, try as he might, couldn't get a bunch of "students" in central Tehran to free the hostages.
Hoping that Iran would be satisfied, they left Khomeini alone.

I remembered the picture of the thugs pulling Ambassador Steven’s body through the streets- the Obama administration tried to convince us that that was “good hearted” protesters trying to get him to a hospital.
For years the intelligencia has been brainwashed by this.
Ask anyone at the CIA and they will rote repeat what they are told instead of doing actual analysis.
I have been saying since 3/17, he's going for a peace deal in the M.E., he was helping to destroy the "proxies" and we needed an internall collaspe within Iran which looks like it is at hand.
What I didn't get via a recent editorial that I didn't save was the dual operating parameters of Iran aka proxies and internal suppression, I knew of both, but I didn't see the link and how they used these two to run their machine.
I hope Jimma Carter lives long enough to see it happen....
Nice. I see trump as Dorothy. Enduring the wrath of evil eventually revealing the wizard to not be who people want him to be.
Toto is a classic helper animal
Any the gays love that movie but American Thinker? Better for the Advocate?
A very good article. Thanks for posting. The ME goons could’ve blamed Joe & Hunter Biden for it, because they still had a bone to pick with Ukraine. Their thinking is too rigid. Truth does not become them.
Please observe the current flock of politicians, and note those who have previous/current CIA experience. They are everywhere. Also, note their policy direction.
Children of The Bushes.....
The repubs have been negotiating the terms under the dummiecrap abstract conceptual framework. There is no way that the repubs can win in the long run unless they reject the framework of evil.
What did Iran do when Carter lost and Reagan became president. Look what Iran did when 0bama’s gone and Trump is president. Coincidence that Iran blinked both times?
Good review of decades of failure in the USA Iran policy.
Ever year on the feast of the Holy Family
Our pastor fills the collection baskets with
scraps of folded paper with the names of Saints
and a short description about them and
everyone randomly draws a one.
This year guess which Saint I drew...
“Trump is toto”
He blessed the rains down in Africa?
They like the movie because of Judy Garland and the “Over the Rainbow” song.
Trump is Holding the Line!
That was their best album, IMHO.
Yep. All conformists of Ivy Leagues.
A professor asked students why they thought big corps and government hired them. They all thought it was because they were geniuses. The prof answered absolutely not! It is because you are repeaters without imagination and docile barbarians with zero entrepreneurial spirit who cannot plan anything on your own ahead of time that they recruit you out from there.
