Jimmy Carter was once one of my favorite retired presidents and now it's just embarassing listening to him. From Powerline:

"In the perverse world of Jimmy Carter, the United States is a criminal nation that destroys civil liberties, tortures prisoners and oppresses Palestinians. But the Iran-controlled terrorists of Hamas? No problem."

See the video and full commentary at Powerline here.

Also approximately 100 Japanese lawmakers "denounced the Nanjing Massacre as a fabrication... contesting Chinese claims that Japanese soldiers killed hundreds of thousands of people after seizing the Chinese city in 1937."

Serious denial going on here. Also how do you define a "massacre?" This statement kills me:

Nariaki Nakayama, head of the group created to study World War II historical issues and education, said documents from the Japanese government's archives indicated that about 20,000 people were killed - about one-tenth of the more commonly cited figure of 150,000 to 200,000 - in the 1937 attack. China says that as many as 300,000 people were killed.

So... 20,000 isn't a massacre? If it was above 100,000 it is?
