<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">The Jimmy Carter rabbit incident, dubbed the "killer rabbit" attack by the media, involved a Swamp Rabbit that caught press imagination after swimming toward then-U.S. President Jimmy Carter's fishing boat on April 20, 1979.

Carter had gone on a solo fishing expedition in his hometown of Plains, Georgia. According to the former president, a rabbit being chased by hounds "jumped in the water and swam toward my boat. When he got almost there, I splashed some water with a paddle."[1]

Upon returning to his office, Carter's staff did not believe his story, insisting that rabbits couldn't swim, or that they would never approach a person threateningly.[2] The incident was captured on footage taken by a White House photographer.

Press Secretary Jody Powell mentioned the event to Associated Press correspondent Brooks Jackson on August 28, 1979, who filed the story with the wire service the following day. The story "President Attacked by Rabbit" was carried across the front page of The Washington Post, though the White House's refusal to release the photograph resulted in the newspaper using a cartoon parody of the Jaws poster labeled "PAWS" as its illustration.[4] The White House still refused to release the photograph of the incident to the media until it turned up during the Reagan administration and the story saw a revival.

In Press Secretary Powell's 1986 book The Other Side of the Story, he recounted the story as follows:

“Upon closer inspection, the animal turned out to be a rabbit. Not one of your cutesy, Easter Bunny-type rabbits, but one of those big splay-footed things that we called swamp rabbits when I was growing up."

“The animal was clearly in distress, or perhaps berserk. The President confessed to having had limited experience with enraged rabbits. He was unable to reach a definite conclusion about its state of mind. What was obvious, however, was that this large, wet animal, making strange hissing noises and gnashing its teeth, was intent upon climbing into the Presidential boat.”</div></div>

The POTUS bravely fended off his would be assassin with nothing more than a boat oar. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jimmy_Carter_rabbit_incident)

The pond is quite well stocked.

Probably worried about a Mossad-trained creature, or swimming robot C-4 device looking like a rabbit.

Or, to be fair, something cooked up by the 600+ covert operators he had DCI Stansfeld Turner fire from CIA contractor or agent status.

Here's a bit of disclosure about the CIA's created robot animals:

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Meet the CIA’s robotic animal agents: Charlie the spy fish and the robo-dragonfly

The CIA recently created accounts on Flickr and YouTube. Most of what's been uploaded is underwhelming and weirdly mundane — for example, you can learn about a satisfying career as a K-9 bomb-sniffing dog — but there are some oddly intriguing mechanical animals on display, namely the robo-fish Charlie and a "dragonfly insectothopter," which the CIA claims was never used in the field. Click through to watch videos of these spybots in motion.

Here's the CIA's description of Charlie:

CIA's Office of Advanced Technologies and Programs developed the Unmanned Underwater Vehicle (UUV) fish to study aquatic robot technology. The UUV fish contains a pressure hull, ballast system, and communications system in the body and a propulsion system in the tail. It is controlled by a wireless line-of-sight radio handset. </div></div>

Here (http://io9.com/5755799/check-out-the-cias-robotic-dragonfly-and-spy-fish/gallery/1)

And as we know, by the time any such thing is disclosed, it's been around a long time. One of these is described as being created 20 years ago.

Any POTUS might very well be aware of such creations.

So ... because Jimmuh is a demokrook ... you will go as far as claiming this killer bunny was robot controlled by the evil Jews?

That was simply precious.

Possibly.

Or as I said:

Or, to be fair, something cooked up by the 600+ covert operators he had DCI Stansfeld Turner fire from CIA contractor or agent status.

Who wouldn't be Israelis, but US nationals, typically.

As must have escaped your attention, a president has expressed fears that he would be removed from office by a coup d'etat from the military (JFK, telling Kruschev that via a back channel using RFK during the Cuba Missile Crisis), and by the CIA (JFK, telling Krulak, who printed it on page one in the NY Times not a month before his assassination), or directly killed by the Secret Service (LBJ, private musings to trusted aides). Nixon feared the CIA as a rival power source, tried to bring it to heel, and likely was removed by a CIA-sponsored coup, in effect (Watergate). Reagan was nearly slain in what was likely a Secret Service-engineered shooting opportunity (many presidents had spoken at the Mayflower, and their limos had awaited them right at the exit door, not so far a space down the block).

And they didn't have 600+ unemployed assassins and wet-work agents and contractors they had fired to be concerned about, as Carter did.

A "Mossad-trained creature, or swimming robot C-4 device looking like a rabbit."

Seriously dude ... that is coming from the back parking lot of the WALMART across the street from the stadium lot beyond the left field bleachers.

You are certainly amusing however.

You think you understand what security fears are realistic to presidents? Why would you think that?

Have you seen the 'hummingbird' drone robot? That's of more recent vintage, in terms of disclosing its existence. Have you seen the flechette-firing umbrella that the CIA designed? Using an exotic shell-fish-derived toxin? (Featured in the Church investigation exhibits)

Assuming rabbits typically never swim, I think any fear Carter may have had could have been justified.

Of course ... after all it was "making strange hissing noises and gnashing its teeth."

EXACTLY!!!

Either a way-pissed off rabbit, dangerous in its own right, or a leporiform robot, even more troubling.

LOL! Pretty funny, but maybe you had to be there.
