White House hits back at Carter
May 21,2007 00:00 by UPI

CRAWFORD, Texas - The White House is returning fire against former U.S. President Jimmy Carter who publicly termed Bush's presidency "the worst in history."

Bush spokesman Tony Fratto called Carter's criticism "reckless" and said the former president has proven to be increasingly irrelevant by making these kinds of comments, The Los Angeles Times reported.

"I think as far as the adverse impact on the nation around the world, this administration has been the worst in history," Carter was quoted as saying in a telephone interview with the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.

He not only lashed out at U.S. President George Bush but he told BBC Radio "The almost undeviating support by Great Britain for the ill-advised policies of President Bush in Iraq has been a major tragedy for the world."
