KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Former President Jimmy Carter, on a tour to promote his latest book, is sharply questioning the direction the Bush administration has taken the country.

At Unity Temple in Kansas City, Missouri, Carter yesterday said he is -- quote -- "disturbed an angry" at what he calls a radical move away from human rights, protecting the environment and defending the separation of church and state.

Carter is promoting his 20th book, "Our Endangered Values: America's Moral Crisis," which he describes as his first political book. He placed responsibility for that moral crisis largely on the Bush administration, citing a pre-emptive war policy, inadequate attention to the environment, and the use of torture against some prisoners.

About 1,200 people waited to have books signed by the 39th president.
