Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama.

What do all three have in common?

Spending hours trying to come up with a good answer to that question is surly a violation of the 8th Amendment’s prohibition against cruel and unusual punishments. So skip straight to the answer.

Every time America has a Democrat in the White House, radical Islam metastasizes.

Early in the Carter administration, Iran, which had been a steady ally of America, fell out of favor. The radical Islamists, led by the then-exiled Ayatollah Khomeini, began street demonstrations against the Shah of Iran in the fall of 1977.

Since Mr. Carter was a Democrat, he was ever diligent in his duty to hurt America and stab our allies in the back. Mr. Carter pressured the Shah to give in and eventually the Shah abdicated in early 1979 and Iran became an Islamic republic and the focus of evil in the modern world. A few months later, 52 Americans became hostages and America saw how truly hapless Mr. Carter was.

The Democrats did their best to have America forget about Mr. Carter’s zeal to harm America. When Bill Clinton, the “new” Democrat, came into the White House in 1993, the Islamists immediately greeted him by bombing the World Trade Center.

What did Mr. Clinton do? He decided terrorism was a criminal offense instead of an act of war. The Clinton Justice Department prosecuted a number of Islamists, most of whom are still in the SuperMAX prison in Colorado. Unfortunately, Islamists look at their prisoners as just another excuse for terrorism and a bargaining chip.

Mr. Clinton was given a chance to get Osama Bin Laden. The Sudan offered Bin Laden to Mr. Clinton. In the finest traditions of American liberals, he worried about the “legality” of extraditing Bin Laden to America, where there were already charges filed against him.

The Sudan offered the Clinton administration voluminous information on Bin Laden and if the Clinton administration did not want Bin Laden, the Sudan would sit on him and prevent him from doing anything.

Mr. Clinton did what Democrats always do.

He dithered.

And he played the saxophone on late-night TV.

And he played golf.

Bin Laden escaped and on Aug. 7, 1998, Bin Laden masterminded the attacks on two American embassies in Africa that left almost 300 people dead, including 12 Americans, and wounded almost 4,000.
