    It is time for a change.
    Well who can speak with moral authority?

    No, of course not, happy? Your kindergarten class hasn't taught you how to debate very well.

    That's funny - Bush did most of those things, as well: waterboarding, unwarrented strikes that killed civilians, spying on citizens via unwarrented phone tapping, etc

    So does he condemn Bush, too?

    Is there any question that Jimmy Carter has either an agenda or is a loon?
    I disagree with Carter on many things. However on this issue, I am not sure how we can not agree that America should not be able to fly drones anywhere in the world and kill folks because we believe they might some day pose a threat.
