    I was following the events closely and was proud of Carter that he resisted the pressure to ACT, preferring to negotiate and save all the hostages' lives. I was disappointed when he waffled and agreed to a rescue which was expected to end in the loss of as many as a third of the hostages, or so I read at the time.
