After getting pilloried by the Bushies for his "worst in history" comment, Jimmy Carter retreated from some pretty damning statements made during a BBC interview. But he was right, and a quick run down of some of the stories in today's New York Times provides up to the minute evidence of the Bush administration's "worst in history" performance:
- U.S. Rebuffs Germany on Greenhouse Gas Cuts: This one is the most infuriating. The Bush Adminstration stands alone in the world in their denial of global warming and the need to do something about it.
- Missile Defense Test Is Halted After the Target Rocket Fails: A $10 billion dollar a year boondoggle. Whose only real success to date has been severely pissing off the Russians, who are making all sorts of threats about missle defense in Poland.
- Panel Wants to Hear From Justice Official: With Monica Goodling telling the House Judiciary Committee that ex-Deputy Attorney General McNulty wasn't entirely candid in his own testimony, Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) will be calling him back in for questioning.
