Jimmy Carter went behind the back of the Clinton Administration when he took it upon himslef to fly to North Korea to make a deal that helped their nuclear program..angering Clinton and others. History repeats itself... a farce... and a rogue ex—President. Benny Avni of the New York Sun reports:
President Carter personally called Secretary of State Rice to try to convince her to reverse her U.N. ambassador's position on changes to the U.N. Human Rights Commission, the former president recalled yesterday in a talk in which he also criticized President Bush's Christian bona fides and misstated past American policies on Israel.
Mr. Carter said he made a personal promise to ambassadors from Egypt, Pakistan, and Cuba on the U.N. change issue that was undermined by America's ambassador, John Bolton. "My hope is that when the vote is taken," he told the Council on Foreign Relations, "the other members will outvote the United States."
