    Jimmy Carter Accuses U.S. of 'Widespread Abuse of Human Rights'[W:110]

    Jimmy Carter Accuses U.S. of 'Widespread Abuse of Human Rights' - Yahoo! News

    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 39 th 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.
    Is there any question that Jimmy Carter has either an agenda or is a loon?

    No, he's actually right. Suck it up.

    LOL he is actually right haha..

    If you look at the complaints the US State Department has against other countries on human rights, ... then many of those "abuses" the US commits as well. And then there is of course... GITMO and "enhanced interrogation". The US is no angel when it comes to human rights.. far far far far from it.

    Well I guess Obama doesn't deserve a second term.

    Doesn't have anything to do with who the president is, sorry partisan.

    Well, he was never the sharpest tack anyway. He has ceaselessly sought to vindicate his failed presidency and himself by presuming to be the conscience of a nation with even less success than his presidency.

    You are aware that Jimmy Carter has done extensive work in the area of human rights and peace since being president and thus is in a good position to make such a judgement, right?

    Tribalism is one of the facets of conservative thinking. The problem is that this form of loyalty can get in the way of objective analysis and it often does.
