i think denying teenagers accurate, scientifically and medically sound information about the use of contraception for the sake of bolstering theocratic notions of the necessity of virginity is the best way to promote a culture in which abortion -- which almost always occurs as a result of an unplanned pregnancy -- is necessary.

Carter: Americans were misled on war

Former president says Bush policy is a 'radical departure'

ATLANTA, Georgia (CNN) -- Former President Jimmy Carter said Friday that there isn't "any doubt" the American people were misled about the war in Iraq and that President George Bush's policy on the war is a "radical departure from the policies of any president."

In an interview with CNN, Carter addressed some of the comments made in his new book, "Our Endangered Values: America's Moral Crisis." In the book he says the Bush administration was determined to attack Iraq using "false and distorted claims after 9/11."

Carter said the Bush administration spoke of mushroom clouds, weapons of mass destruction and the threat of thousands of Americans dying to garner support for the war. No weapons of mass destruction have been found in Iraq.

He was careful to say he didn't know whether intelligence was misinterpreted or purposely twisted, and Carter praised the attempts by his fellow Democrats in Congress to press efforts to look into the matter. (Watch how the Senate went into secret session over the intelligence used to back the war -- 3:05)

"If the investigation would go ahead and proceed, as Democrats have been trying to in the Senate now for more than 18 months, then we will know the circumstances under which the American people -- and I think an entire world -- was misled about what was going on in Iraq," he said.

Carter added that he had seen no evidence the White House was involved in the CIA leak investigation that ensnared Vice President Dick Cheney's chief of staff, I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, last week.

Libby is accused of lying to investigators and a grand jury probing the disclosure of the identity of a CIA officer whose husband had challenged administration claims that then-Iraqi President Saddam Hussein had been trying to restart his nuclear weapons program.

Carter also said that the administration's pre-emptive strike doctrine directed against the possible future use of weapons of mass destruction is a spurious basis for a war when there is no immediate threat to America's security.

"We'll bomb, strafe and send missiles against their people even though our security's not directly threatened," he said. "This is contrary to international law. It's also contrary to what every president has done in this country for more than 100 years, Democrat or Republican."

Hey, Carter and me actually agree! Even Carter says that Bush broke international law! A little late after two full years... but better late than never.

Now I´m just waiting for STING2 to refute this ridiculous leftist Carter and quote resolution 1441.

I agree with Carter.

A conservative constitutionalist is nominated for the Supreme Court, and you have all the psycho-libs in the senate screaming about abortion. I feel sorry for any liberal who is more passionate about all the other issues that the modern Democratic Party is putting little to no effort into promoting. It seems more and more that other than the Iraqi war, the Democrats are becoming a one-issue party.

Well, not everything that comes out of his mouth, of course.
