Errors, omissions, inventions, falsehoods, and theft

Former Middle East envoy Dennis Ross has accused Jimmy Carter of improperly publishing maps that did not belong to him. Ross says he commissioned the maps for his use, but that Carter appears to have ripped them off for use in his book, Palestine: Peace, Not Apartheid.
Ross’ charges (if true) are probably the least of the problems Carter faces with respect to his book. Several days ago, as Scott reported, Kenneth Stein resigned as Middle East Fellow of the Carter Center of Emory University. He stated that “President Carter’s book on the Middle East, a title too inflammatory to even print, is not based on unvarnished analyses; it is replete with factual errors, copied materials not cited, superficialities, glaring omissions, and simply invented segments.”
But at least it has good maps.
