Get Carter

Can we imagine a world in which the Bush administration actually took Jamie Kirchick’s advice and had Jimmy Carter arrested for violating a never-enforced 1799 law? I might encourage them to do it just for the entertainment value. Does Kirchick seriously think this should happen or is this just one of those “it’s Jimmy Carter so you can say whatever about him” kind of situations? I’d say we’re more likely to see George W. Bush on trial in the Hague than Carter charged with Logan Act violations.
