Hi, Del.

The first half-truth is in her very first line:
>>The day of Reagan's inauguration, the hostages were released. <<
True -- but that was because William Casey had brokered a deal to keep them hostage as long as Carter was President. The Iraqis intended the timing to highlight the deal, but Americans refused to believe the truth.

Wow, there are actually a few grains of truth this time

I'm impressed! Not just by the fact that she traces the problem back to Carter's poor handling of the Iran hostage situation (I agree), but by the fact that she acknowledges that Bush I fell short when it came to fighting terrorism.

The rest is about what I'd expect from Ann Coulter.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
