JIMMY CARTER: THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR WAS UNNECESSARY

If you harbor the same disdain as I for Jimmy Carter as failed president, misguided, pollyanish humanitarian, and self-styled diplomat-at-large (drowning in his own inexhaustable naivette), then you owe it to yourself to read this review of Stephen F.
