One of the special vulnerabilities of Israel, and a repetitive cause of violence, is the holding of prisoners. Militant Palestinians and Lebanese know that a captured Israeli soldier or civilian is either a cause of conflict or a valuable bargaining chip for prisoner exchange. This assumption is based on a

Print this section Jimmy Carter , born in 1924, 39th president of the United States (1977-1981). Carter had served one term as governor of Georgia and was considered an outsider to traditional party politics. From the beginning his presidency was marked by caution, conservatism, frustrations, and disappointments. Many reforms he promised were never carried out—some because they were abandoned by Carter, others because of congressional hostility. During the 1976 campaign, for example, Carter vowed to reform the tax system, which he called “a disgrace”; yet as president he gave only token support to tax reform. He also promised to reduce drastically the number of agencies in the federal bureaucracy—which he called “the worst, most confused, bloated, overlapping, and wasteful” in history—and to slash the number of federal employees. Instead of eliminating departments, however, he added the departments of energy and education to the Cabinet, and the number of government employees continued to increase during his presidency.

My Problem with Jimmy Carter's Book
by Kenneth W. Stein
Middle East Quarterly
Spring 2007
Jimmy Carter's engagement in foreign affairs as a former president is unprecedented in U.S. history. Because he regards the Arab-Israeli conflict as among Washington's most important foreign policy topics he has written more than two dozen articles and commentaries about the conflict, eight in the past year alone. In these publications, Carter uses his credibility as a former president, Nobel laureate, and key player in the September 1978 Camp David accords and the Egypt-Israel peace treaty to unfold his set of truths and often to criticize U.S. policy. He relishes the role of elder statesman and believes that with his accrued wisdom and experience, he can contribute to solutions. But Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid Carter's twenty-first book and his second to focus on the Arab-Israeli conflict, is deficient. He does what no non-fiction author should ever do: He allows ideology or opinion to get in the way of facts. While Carter says that he wrote the book to educate and provoke debate, the narrative aims its attack toward Israel, Israeli politicians, and Israel's supporters. It contains egregious errors of both commission and omission. To suit his desired ends, he manipulates information, redefines facts, and exaggerates conclusions. Falsehoods, when repeated and backed by the prestige of Carter's credentials, can comprise an erroneous baseline for shaping and reinforcing attitudes and policymaking. Rather than bring peace, they can further fuel hostilities, encourage retrenchment, and hamper peacemaking.

Eight years before Jimmy Carter became the first U.S. president to write a novel ( The Hornet's Nest Always a Reckoning, and Other Poems (New York: Times Books, 1995), a collection of 44 poems illustrated by his granddaughter Sarah Elizabeth Chuldenko, met with mixed reviews upon its publication. New York Times book reviewer Michiko Kakutani called Carter a "mediocre poet" who writes "well-meaning, dutifully wrought poems that plod from Point A to Point B without ever making a leap into emotional hyperspace, poems that lack not only a distinctive authorial voice, but also anything resembling a psychological or historical subtext." Speaking of the genesis of Always a Reckoning in a 2003 interview, Carter said that "ten years ago, I wanted to write a book of poems. I approached with some temerity a couple of distinguished poets (Miller Williams and James Whitehead) at the University of Arkansas who took me under their wing, and I received the equivalent of a postgraduate course in poetry."

I promised you a President who is not isolated from the people, who feels your pain, and who shares your dreams, and who draws his strength and his wisdom from you. During the past three years I’ve spoken to you on many occasions about national concerns, the energy crisis, reorganizing the government, our nation’s economy, and issues of war and especially peace. But over those years the subjects of the speeches, the talks, and the press conferences have become increasingly narrow, focused more and more on what the isolated world of Washington thinks is important. Gradually, you’ve heard more and more about what the government thinks or what the government should be doing and less and less about our nation’s hopes, our dreams, and our vision of the future.

66. Jimmy Carter’s UFO Close Encounter - UFO Evidence
When a President Says He’s Seen a UFO, You Really Have to Wonder if the Truth Is Out There. President carter filed two formal reports when he was governor
UFO Evidence Home U.S. Presidents and UFOs Jimmy Carter’s UFO Close Encounter Buck Wolf, original source fair use notice Summary: When a President Says He’s Seen a UFO, You Really Have to Wonder if the Truth Is Out There. President Carter filed two formal reports when he was governor of Georgia describing his observation of an unidentified flying object to organizations that collect and promote UFO sightings as unexplained phenomena. Jan. 22 — It was just another fun night at the Lion’s Club for Jimmy Carter — when suddenly from the sky a UFO “as bright as the moon” flashed before his eyes. While leaving a Lion's Club in Leary, Ga., then-Gov. Jimmy Carter noticed an object in the sky.
A red and green glowing orb radiated as it hurtled across the southwestern Georgia skies that January 1969 evening. Ten minutes later, it vanished.
That was Jimmy Carter’s story — and he’s sticking to it. Carter, then Georgia’s governor, became the first major politician to risk achieving “crackpot” status by claiming he had had a close encounter.
“I don’t laugh at people any more when they say they’ve seen UFOs,” Carter said at a Southern Governors Conference a few years later. “I’ve seen one myself.”

reddit_url=window.location.href reddit_title='Pres. Carter: US tortures prisoners, 'I know it' ' Print This Email This Former president Jimmy Carter isn't just suspicious that the US is using torture to extract intelligence from detainees he's absolutely convinced. Asked by CNN's Wolf Blitzer if, by Carter's definition of the word, the United States had used torture during the Bush administration, the Nobel Peace Prize winner was adamant: "I don't think it, I know it," he said. "Certainly." Pressed by Blitzer on whether that meant that President Bush was lying, Carter was equally clear. "The president is self-defning what we have done and authorized in the torture of prisoners," said Carter."Yes." Earlier in the interview, Carter said Bush's denial this week that the US did not in fact torture detainees was "not an accurate statement if you use the international norms of torture as has always been honored in the last 60 years, since the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was promulgated." "But you can make your own definition of human rights and say we don't violate them," he added, "and you can make your own defintion of torture and say we don't violate them."

    knowing that this galaxy of ours is one of multitudes in what we call the heavens, it troubles me. It troubles me. jimmy carter.
    Considering the Void
    When I behold the charm
    of evening skies, their lulling endurance;
    the patterns of stars with names
    of bears and dogs, a swan, a virgin;
    other planets that the Voyager showed
    were like and so unlike our own,
    with all their diverse moons,
    bright discs, weird rings, and cratered faces;
    comets with their streaming tails
    bent by pressure from our sun; the skyscape of our Milky Way holding in its shimmering disc an infinity of suns (or say a thousand billion); knowing there are holes of darkness gulping mass and even light, knowing that this galaxy of ours is one of multitudes in what we call the heavens, it troubles me. It troubles me. Jimmy Carter

On May 12, 2002, Carter became the first U.S. President, current or former, to visit Cuba since Castro’s revolution in 1959. His five-day visit unofficially continues a dialogue that was officially started with the distribution of this two-page document, Presidential Directive/NSC-6, in 1977. Carter’s effort to “set in motion a process which will lead to the reestablishment of diplomatic relations between the United States and Cuba” eventually was aborted over Cold War issues such as Cuba’s involvement in Africa.

    President Jimmy Carter
    Carter is widely regarded as the first openly Born Again president, and perhaps the most Evangelical president in U.S. history. He is an active Sunday School teacher and has written inspirational Christian books. Carter attended First Baptist Church in Washington D.C. while he was President. Carter is considered by most historians to be the first formally Evangelical/self-declared Born Again president. Carter was long associated with the Southern Baptist Convention, and was a Southern Baptist while in office. Although he remained a devout Baptist, he renounced his association with the Southern Baptist Convention in October 2000. Deseret News , Nov. 15, 1997]. In October 2000, Carter again made headlines with his widely-publicized decision to leave the Southern Baptist Convention. Carter sent out over 75,000 letters to Southern Baptist churches nationwide explaining his decision. He felt that his Christian commitment had not changed, but that the cumulative changes in the SBC had made the organization a group that his Christian conscience could not let him support. [ More about Carter and the SBC From: Richard N. Ostling (Associated Press), "Old custom: U.S. presidents tangle with their religious denominations", published 9 February 2003, in

    Jimmy Carter's UFO Sighting
    Jimmy Carter, Ex-President of the USA, nominated 5 (?) times for the Nobel Peace Prize. In October of '69 Jimmy Carter witnessed a UFO. From "Above Top Secret" (book): During his election campaign of 1976 he told the following to reporters: It was the darndest thing I've ever seen. It was big, it was very bright, it changed colors and it was about the size of the moon.. We watched it for ten minutes, but none of us could figure out what it was. One thing's for sure, I'll never make fun of people who say they've seen unidentified objects in the sky. If I become President, I'll make every piece of information this country has about UFO sightings available to the public and the scientists. Following is the form Jimmy Carter filed with NICAP on Sep. 18, 1973. Only the questions that were responded to are listed. Carter's responses are in quotation marks. At one time, you could find lots of cool information at: Wiretap. I just visited and didn't see much there (1998).
