Carter Calls on U.S. to Shut Down Gitmo
Former President Carter on Tuesday called for the United States to shut down the Guantanamo Bay prison to demonstrate its commitment to human rights.
“The U.S. continues to suffer terrible embarrassment and a blow to our reputation … because of reports concerning abuses of prisoners in Iraq, Afghanistan and Guantanamo,” Carter said after a two-day human rights conference at his Atlanta center.
Seriously, does anyone care what Jimmy Carter thinks any more? Anyone who’s not an America-hating Moore-on leftist? Carter is simply an embarrassment to any decent, patriotic American.
However, Carter did respond appropriately to the recent moral idiocy from Amnesty International:
Despite his criticism of Guantanamo Bay, Carter said Amnesty International should not have called the prison “the gulag of our time” in a report last month. President Bush has termed the report by the human-rights group “absurd.”
Carter said the alleged abuses at Guantanamo Bay could never compare with the forced labor camps operated by the former Soviet Union.
Proof that hardly anyone is wrong 100% of the time.
