El ex presidente de la potencia mundial afirmó que Bush tiene su propia definición de lo que son los derechos humanos.
El ex presidente estadounidense Jimmy Carter (1977-1981) aseguró este miércoles que su país tortura a prisioneros y opinó que, por primera vez en su vida, EE.UU. "ha abandonado el principio básico de los derechos humanos".
En declaraciones realizadas al espacio "The situation room" de la cadena de televisión CNN, Carter se mostró categórico sobre la tortura: "no lo creo, lo sé", expresó tajante.
"Nuestro país, por primera vez en mi vida, ha abandonado el principio básico de los derechos humanos. Hemos dicho que las convenciones de Ginebra no son para los detenidos en la cárcel de Abu Ghraib y la base de Guantánamo (Cuba), y hemos decidido que podemos torturar prisioneros", afirmó.
Además, el ex mandatario señaló que George W. Bush tiene su propia definición de lo que son los derechos humanos.
"Uno puede realizar su propia definición de derechos humanos y decir que no los violamos y tener otra propia sobre la tortura y asegurar que no la violamos", apuntó el ex gobernante.
Las declaraciones de Carter tuvieron una respuesta inmediata de la Casa Blanca, donde a través de un portavoz reiteró que Estados Unidos "no tortura" y que "entristece" escuchar "a un ex presidente hablar así".
Por otro lado, en una entrevista con la cadena británica de televisión BBC, distribuida en Washington, Carter se refirió a personajes de la vida política estadounidense como el vicepresidente, Dick Cheney, y la secretaria de Estado, Condoleezza Rice.
Sobre Cheney, el ex mandatario subrayó que el vicepresidente es un "desastre" para EE.UU. y un "militante" que ha tenido excesiva influencia a la hora de marcar la política exterior del país.
Respecto a Rice, expresó que siente "admiración por ella" por "no dejarse intimidar por él (Cheney), algo que hizo incluso cuando estaba en la Casa Blanca bajo Bush" como asesora de seguridad nacional.
"Ahora la influencia de la secretaria de Estado es evidentemente mayor que lo era entonces y espero que siga así", dijo Carter. (EFE)

Dear Friend

It's nice for me to have found this blogg of yours. I read and saw what I could, my time is short.
I sure hope and wish that you take courage enough to pay me a visit in my PALAVROSSAVRVS REX!, and plus get some surprise with my work there. My blogg is so cool! Don't think for a minute that my invitation is spam and I'm a spammer.
I often come across with so good but lonely bloggs in my friendly random search,
my search for a public that may like or love what I POETRY write and also CHRONICLE,
among other types of Artistic Texts: we all search HAPINESS and JOY, don't we?
Well I'm realy happy to have found YOU.

I've learned and seen a lot after much more than 10.000 bloggs I've visted in the late three months.
And I will, like Titanic's Kate, keep on and on and on and, like the song, feel that I 'Still haven't found what I'm looking for'.

When you come and visit me feel free to comment as you wish and, TOGETHER, let's make blogguing universal,
realy universal, as well all the essential causes that bring us all together by visiting, helping and loving one another this GENTLE way.

Let me tell you that some I visit feel invaded and ofended that I present myself this way in their blogs
and rudely insult me back or post a mockery post on me.
Some think I'm playing the smart guy who wants to profit in some way from (and with) others curiosity and benevolence.
Some simply ignore me.
Some aknowledge that It's most important we all take notion that there's milions of us bloguing arownd the world
and thus vital any kind of awareness of eachother such as I believe
this my self-introduction card and insert apeal brings in.

May you be one of those open and friendly spirits.

Don't feel obliged to come and visit me.
An invitation is not an intimation. Know that if you FOR A SECOND click on one of my ADS
I can earn a lot of money and so can you and there's no shame in it.
I would feel happy and rewarded if you did click it FOR A SECOND
because certainly I WOULD DO IT FOR YOU in case you had them and asked me.

I think that in the end it's to UNITE MANKIND that we became bloggers!
When in my blogg don't see language as an obstacle but as a challenge
(though you can use the translater BabelFish at the bottom of my page!)
and think for a minute if I and the rest of the world are not expecting something like a broad cumplicity that you're a part of.
Remenber that pictures talk also and I have de most delicious ones.

I Hope this message of mine had helped you in some way.

See you soon, MY FRIEND.
May the LORD bless our HEARTS and fill them with PEACE AND MOTIVATION
to endure our Lives the best way we can.
