Jimmy Carter Accuses U.S. of ‘Widespread Abuse of Human Rights’
ABC News ^ | Jun 25, 2012

Posted on 06/26/2012 11:17:14 AM PDT by kingattax

A former U.S. president is accusing the current president of sanctioning the “widespread abuse of human rights” by authorizing drone strikes to kill suspected terrorists.

Jimmy Carter, America’s 39th president, denounced the Obama administration for “clearly violating” 10 of the 30 articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, writing in a New York Times op-ed on Monday that the “United States is abandoning its role as the global champion of human rights.”

“Instead of making the world safer, America’s violation of international human rights abets our enemies and alienates our friends,” Carter wrote.

carter is a traitor. he has criticized the US from beyond water’s edge and now does the same.

I don’t care who is POTUS — he did the same under Bush.

He should climb back under a rock.

I agree with him though not in the same way he meant it. A nation that allows the legal murder of 50 million of its own unborn citizens can not be a leader in human rights.

Earlier today, I was thinking how nice it has been not hearing from Jimmah Carter in awhile. Then I read this.

Now I’m wondering who was the last Democrat president who actually loved this country. I know it wasn’t the last three. Truman?

The Jihaddis want us to send guys out to meet them in hand to hand combat.

I think it's fine to send a drone and just fry them like bugs.

They're the ones who want to get wasted, and so they get wasted.

The fact Carter is taking the side of the Jihaddis is highly suggestive of his having become a Moslem.

JFK, for all his faults, in addition to being a combat war Vet, came from a generation in which Love of Country was the overwhelming default sentiment. Yes, things began to change for the MUCH worse during his presidency, and he is to blame for a lot of that.

Additionally, he clearly loved HIMSELF more than his country, and for that matter, more than his wife and children as well....

That's a genetic issue. All the Kennedy men seems to have that problem.

Obozo is a murdering thug. No difference between him and his “sons” on a typical Saturday night in Chicago.

Follow this line of reasoning:

1. Obozo using drones more and more to kill suspected terrorists overseas.
2. Obozo signs law allowing him to unilaterally declare anyone in the US to be a terrorist with no proof.
3. Obozo starts using drones in the US for “surveillance purposes’
4. Guess what comes next?

Leave it to the first peace prize winner black POTUS Obama to launch the first ‘assassination by drone’ wars.

Killing their entire family with a hellfire missile is much more humane than water-boarding them for info.

Jimmy didn't get the memo that RATs are only supposed to be "anti-war" and "concerned with civil liberties" when Republicans are in power. Democrats (Clinton, Obama, etc.) are ALWAYS allowed to bomb whoever they want, for whatever reason. If a liberal RAT like John Edwards were in power in 2003 and decided to "wage war" with Saddam Hussein, Michael Moore & most of the Hollywood weird crowd would have applauded it, as would have Nancy Pelosi and most of the congressional RATs.

You are absolutely right. No President --- no Democrat, no Republican, not this President, nor the one that comes after him --- can have the rightful authority to target someone for assassination simply on his own say-so--- as if he were God Almighty or, more likely, the Primordial Death-eater himself.

I am amazed that ANY American people accept this. If we don't stop this, we will msurely earn ourselves hell here, and hereafter as well.

Thanks sickoflibs. Carter the Jew-hating and incompetent anti-American bunghole should have shut up after his ass was kicked in the 1980 election. A more thorough repudiation has scarcely happened since WWII in US politics.

I will be pissing on his grave, and I hope my first opportunity is soon.
