Jimmy Carter: We Must Stop Obama the Assassin

By John Sexton | June 26, 2012 | Breitbart News

After two weeks dominated by gaffes in which Bill Clinton publicly undercut the President’s campaign strategy, Obama now has another ex-President to deal with. Jimmy Carter wrote an op-ed for Monday’s New York Times which is critical of recent changes in the way America handles its enemies. While Obama is never mentioned by name, most of the programs Carter decries happened under Obama’s watch.

Carter’s piece opens with a nod to bipartisan blame, but once he gets into the particulars the ghost of George Bush seems to fade away. What remains is a sustained attack on the current administration:

Despite an arbitrary rule that any man killed by drones is declared an enemy terrorist, the death of nearby innocent women and children is accepted as inevitable. After more than 30 airstrikes on civilian homes this year in Afghanistan, President Hamid Karzai has demanded that such attacks end, but the practice continues in areas of Pakistan, Somalia and Yemen that are not in any war zone. We don’t know how many hundreds of innocent civilians have been killed in these attacks, each one approved by the highest authorities in Washington. This would have been unthinkable in previous times.

Notice he’s talking about airstrikes that occurred “this year.” But Carter actually goes beyond calling them airstrikes. Elsewhere in the piece he breaks out the A-word, “Revelations that top officials are targeting people to be assassinated abroad, including American citizens, are only the most recent, disturbing proof of how far our nation’s violation of human rights has extended.” I left the link as it appears in the original. If you follow it you’ll see that it leads to the NY Times story about President Obama’s “kill list.”
