President Carter did not support the amnesty for men who left the US to avoid the draft during the Vietnam war due to his will to win the war and defeat Vietnam.
Because President Lydon Johnson had lied to American people about the second Gulf of Tonkin incident in 1965, the USA fought the war with no clear objective on how to win it, and because the war ended in 1975 when President Gerald Ford gave up on the incompetent and worthless government of South Vietnam which was defeated in 60 days by North Vietnam. It was time to put the war behind the USA and to get on with the business of healing the nation.
Presidents can pardon as many people as they want. President Clinton issued 456 executive clemency orders - 395 pardons and 61 commutations - between 1993 and January 20, 2001. President Bush has issued 191 pardons to date, and is expected to do so a number of times more before he leaves office. Jimmy Carter granted amnesty to ALL Vietnam-era draft dodgers, so amnesty can be granted to a very large number of people, not just one person.
Pardon - a full and legal forgiveness for a crime. In essence, the President forgives the defendant for any crime he or she has committed and orders an immediate release. However, the President may not issue pardons for people convicted of state crimes, only federal ones. Also, no person convicted in an impeachment trial may receive a pardon.Reprieve - the delay or postponement of an execution sentence. The date may be moved back, but the execution is not canceled.Power of Commutation- reducing the length of a sentence or a finance imposed by a federal court.Amnesty - Finally, the President may grant amnesty, which is a group pardon to a large number of people who have violated the law. In 1977, President Carter granted amnesty to all Americans who evaded the draft for the Vietnam War.Enjoy your answer. ^^
