Carter and Khomeini

From J'Post:
Carter's ambassador to the UN, Andrew Young, said "Khomeini will eventually be hailed as a saint." Carter's Iranian ambassador, William Sullivan, said, "Khomeini is a Gandhi-like figure."
Is this true? Did they actually say this? Was it consistent with the official policy of the US at the time?
