Tutu, Carter welcome power sharing agreement

From the IHT:

Former President Jimmy Carter, former U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan and other world leaders have welcomed Zimbabwe's unity government deal....

In a statement Saturday, the members of The Elders founded by former President Nelson Mandela said they hoped the deal would ease the country's humanitarian crisis.

Carter urged the international community to "give this agreement the best chances of success."

this is bad news, because Jimmy Carter hasn't met a murderous dictator that he hasn't liked and trusted...and of course a lot of people think Carter's backing of Mugabe over Muzarewa, who after all had won the election, spelled doom for any real democracy or democratic opposition in Zimbabwe..
