Jimmy Carter calls on America to reverse course and regain moral leadership


Jimmy Carter, former US president and Nobel Peace Laureate, is calling on Americans to reverse course and regain moral leadership. In an opinion piece published by the New York Times, Carter says that in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, the US adopted policies that violate several articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. There has been little opposition from either Democrats or Republicans or the American people. Carter cites what he calls the 'arbitrary' rule that any man killed by drones is considered a terrorist.
