Exclusive: Adm. Moorer Slams 'Idiotic' Carter for Being Castro's Dupe

"He should get the hell out of there!" thundered Moorer, a

"He’s trying to justify himself," the retired admiral said. "He has an inferiority complex about what he did and how he left the situation" after his failed one-term presidency. "He had his opportunity, and he really screwed it up."

The antics in Cuba don't surprise Moorer, who fought valiantly against Carter's giveaway of the Panama Canal.

"I think I testified more than any other individual" in Congress against the scheme, Moorer recalled. The Georgia Democrat's action was "the most stupid presidential decision that has ever been made in my lifetime."

The Panama Canal, "the most important waterway in the world," is now "packed with Chinese communists," the retired military leader noted. "It was an idiotic thing to do. It makes no sense whatsoever."

Since then, "Anything Carter does I take with a grain of salt."

Is Carter a "useful idiot" to Castro, as former senior Defense Department official Frank Gaffney said Tuesday night on Fox News Channel? "I agree with that," Moorer said.

He thinks President Bush approved the visit as a "normal reaction of one president to another." But the courtesy backfired. "I don't think the Bush administration really knew what they were getting into when they allowed him to go down there and get in bed with Castro."

Does Carter have good intentions, as many think, or he is deliberately acting against his own country?

Moorer believes the ex-president's main concern is publicity for himself. "I think he does more damage by far than he understands himself. … I think he's a damn menace."

Carter has no authority or expertise to pass judgment on

"He's absolutely doing the U.S. – and the Western world, for that matter – no favors," Moorer observed.

"He should pack up and go home."
