Bush Authorizes Torture

In an interview with BBC former President Jimmy Carter said: “Our country, for the first time in my lifetime, has abandoned the basic principle of human rights…We’ve said that the Geneva Conventions do not apply to those people in Abu Ghraib prison and Guantanamo, and we’ve said we can torture prisoners and deprive them of an accusation of a crime.”Carter believes that the United States has tortured detainees and that President Bush has authorized the abuse, which violates international laws.
