What color is the sky in Carter’s world?
Former President Jimmy Carter said Tuesday night that an agreement he brokered 12 years ago for North Korea to halt nuclear weapons development is “in the wastebasket.” Carter contends the Bush administration turned its back on the deal and labeled the isolated nation part of an “axis of evil.”
Carter is a fool. He’s suggesting that we can’t blame NoKo for creating nukes because Bush called them part of the “Axis of Evil.” Note to Jimmy Carter: NoKo started working on its nuke project before the ink dried on your ridiculous “agreement.”
Armitage has provided the earliest estimate of the program’s origin, testifying February 4 that the U.S. government noticed “some anomalies in [North Korean] procurement patterns” starting in 1994. Similarly, Secretary of State Colin Powell stated during a March 26 hearing before the House Appropriations Committee that North Korea started the program to enrich uranium “before the ink was dry” on the 1994 Agreed Framework.

George Soros is also blaming Bush for NoKo, but that’s not nearly as sickening as Carter’s accusations. Soros is just a crazy, wealthy moonbat out to hurt America. Carter, on the other hand, is a former president out to hurt America.

Update II: Jack Kelly asks why NoKo is our problem to begin with.
