Jimmy Carter: ‘The War has Been Unnecessary’
Couric: But turning Iraq into a democracy is a good thing to you?
Carter: I think that’s a very admirable thing, sure. You could list 50 countries in the world that don’t have democracies, and it would be better if they had all democracies. But to attack a country almost unilaterally and waste away the almost universal global support and friendship and alliances that we had after the tragedy of 9/11 is what has been done.
