File under: Govt of Iran
#1 Who knows that the US instigated and approved the Iranian Revolution in 1979? Ayatollah Khomeni was just a powerless exile until the State Department withdrew their support of the Shah, a staunch US ally.

#2 "The Soviet Union, seeing us so willingly abandon a staunch ally, invaded Afghanistan in December 1979, just six months after Carter and Russian leader Leonid Brezhnev embraced after signing a new arms-control treaty". Carter's Iranian visit and shortly after down goes the Shaw a staunch US ally. The attacks on the Iranian people were far worse under Khomeini. Send Carter over to Iran to represent US and then claim collusion with the our enemies.

#3 And shortly thereafter Jimmy Carter was denied the traditional second term won by presidents the American voters find acceptable. You raise this point repeatedly, Mr. McCoy, but it is no more illuminating than it was the first time.
