Carter's Morality Play

March 1977
Time;3/7/1977, Vol. 109 Issue 10, p12
The article focuses on U.S. President Jimmy Carter as the foreign policies he implemented were tinged with issues of morality. It highlights the incident in which Ugandan leader Idi Amin Dada prohibited Americans from leaving Uganda as a form of retaliation against the U.S. for its criticism of the execution of an archbishop and two Cabinet members. It states that the U.S. is caught with the dilemma of making foreign policies with a moral component. U.S. Politician Henry Kissinger asserted that policies should be anchored on mutual benefit between the countries involved and not on morality. It also adds that the views of Carter against the Soviet Union may generate negative effects to the Soviet government and its relations with the U.S.
