In his resignation letter, Stein said the book is "replete with factual errors, copied materials not cited, superficialities, glaring omissions and simply invented segments." Who knew Carter was capable of errors, superficialities or glaring omissions?

The humantarian from Georgia was a bit chilly in his response: "Although Professor Kenneth Stein has not been actively involved with the Carter Center for more than 12 years, I regret his resignation from the titular position as a fellow."
