Jimmy Carter Calls on U.S. to Shut Down Guantanamo Bay

Well, of COURSE he does! His wonderful track record in combating world terrorism speaks for itself. The hostages in Iran, for instance. He sent in the troops, and got the helicopters shot up and the troops killed. This after his training to be a warrior at Annapolis. Then, he only had to get beaten by Reagan in a landslide to free them – which the Iranians waited to do until they were sure Carter was history.

I would call that episode a terrible embarrassment and a blow to our reputation.

Carter said about Gitmo:

''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.''

(*sigh*) Once a peanut farmer…
