NY Post: [Obama's] PATHETIC 'MESSAGE' [re Middle East under Carter]

[Obama] said he wanted a return "to the same respect and partnership that America had with the Muslim world as recently as 20 or 30 years ago." ....

What was happening during what Obama seems to regard as the "golden age" of Carter's leadership? US diplomats were held hostage in Tehran and daily humiliated with mock executions. ....

During the same period, and its immediate aftermath, dozens of Americans from many walks of life were seized as hostages and sometimes brutally murdered in several Muslim countries. The US ambassador in Sudan was murdered; the CIA station chief in Beirut abducted, taken to Tehran and killed under torture.

Meanwhile, the Libyan terror network was killing American GIs in Europe and blowing up US jetliners over Western skies.
