Jimmy's neutron bomb
Wipes out Bush White House, leaves rest of U.S. unscathed:
Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter on Saturday blasted the U.S. detention center in Cuba, saying that Guantanamo Bay Naval base was an embarrassment to the United States.
Carter was speaking at the Baptist World Alliance’s centenary conference in Birmingham, central England, where he also criticised the current American President’s decision to invade Iraq, describing the war as “unnecessary and unjust.”
“I think what’s going on in Guantanamo Bay and other places is a disgrace to the USA,” he told a news conference, adding that it was “the cause of terrorism.”
… “What has happened at Guantanamo Bay ... does not represent the will of the American people,” Carter said. “I’m embarrassed about it.”
“I thought then, and I think now, that the invasion of Iraq was unnecessary and unjust. And I think the premises on which it was launched were false,” he said Saturday.
Of course, this isn’t the first time Carter has attacked Bush on Iraq, and—like his previous comments—it will probably get little coverage in the mainstream media.

It'll be interesting to see how it pans out. Not that it really amounts to much. Bush has so much support behind his Orwellian controls that it'll take a lot more than this to nudge this country back toward freedom.
