    Looks like Jimmy Carter forgot that he is no longer in office again. A former President meeting with the leadership of a terrorist organization is nothing short of contemptible.

    My problem is that he's already expressed a huge amount of anti-semitism... so he doesn't go being an honest broker.

    Hamas is a legally recognized political organization in Gaza.

    Carter should be praised for reaching out to these people.

    Nothing new here... Let's not forget that Jimmuh Cawtuh started International Islamic Terrorism by encouraging these idiots. I expect he'll be encouraging them until he expires... of course evil is a tough bitch so we can expect his fairy ass to be around a while yet.

    No, actually Ronald Reagan started AQ by sending money and arms to Bin Laden and the mujahadeen in Afganistan.

    But keep living your us vs them fantasy.

    Hamas is a terrorist organization the people of Palestine voted for as their government. Makes the entire state of Palestine a terrorist state, IMO.

    No, actually Jimmy Carter started that. But keep living in your "Dem is good / Republican is bad" fantasy.

    Sorry, but Carter is an embarrassment to this country and has been since the day he was elected -and he has only stepped up that embarrassment since the American people threw him out of office. He is a private citizen and speaks for no one but himself. Former Presidents have NO authority to insert themselves into foreign affairs as if they actually have any authority or their word means a damn thing. This has no more meaning than if Heather the Beautician had a meeting with the leaders of Hamas, sorry.

    Former Presidents have NO business sticking their noses into international affairs unless SPECIFICALLY requested to do so by the current President. Which has never happened in the case of Carter. He has been a thorn in the side of every single President since he got kicked out of office - always pretending the American people would actually prefer HE be the one making foreign policy. Couldn't be further from the truth. The American people threw him out BECAUSE his foreign and domestic policies were utter disaster for this country.

    It doesn't matter whether we have a Democrat or Republican President since then. He still keeps pretending he is the one actually elected to set foreign policy and sticking his nose into affairs in spite of every single President since he got kicked out of office -REPEATEDLY asking him to BUTT OUT.

    There is only ONE person elected to speak for the nation. It isn't Carter. What he can't deal with? It never will be again. By the overwhelming decision of the American people. Anyone who actually had to live through Carter's miserable four years -hasn't regretted that decision since. As far as I'm concerned -the wrong former President got hit with Alzheimer's.

    I know, those terrorists who construct illegal settlements in the Occupied Territories, annexed the Golan Heights, unjustly invaded Lebanon numerous times, used cluster munitions against the civilian population in Lebanon...oh. Wait. That was someone else around there.
