What's to say about Carter that hasn't been said already? At this point, his meeting with the head of known terrorist organization doesn't surprise me in the least. The guy's a meddling do-gooder who's 4 years in office PROVED he can't differentiate between his ideal socialist utopia and reality.
Was I Bush, I wouldn't let him go. Wonder how good a hostage a former US President makes, even if it IS "him".
Oh, and I can DEFINITELY see how some Israelis would be pissed about it.
How would bankrupting the library keep jimmy carter, an old, old man looking to jazz up his parting historic jab at life, from making a very Rocky Balboa attempt at isreali peace in the mid east?
It won't, but it make Congress look and feel like they're doing something about it.
Should have introduced some legislation calling for his indictment for aiding terrorist organizations.
I wonder if the same thing were being said the LAST time he was out brokering peace for israel.
Not against the law to talk to other countries, but it is against the law to assist terrorist organizations. Since Hamas is a terrorist organization and they have been bragging about how Jimmy C is going to help them, should be a slam dunk case.
if only the nomenclature were as universal as you'd think it should be.
"Gaddafi and Bush do apparently see eye to eye. On Monday, Gaddafi accomplished one of history's great diplomatic turnarounds when Secretary of State Condeleezza Rice announced that the U.S. was restoring full diplomatic relations with Libya and held up the Great Socialist People's Libyan Arab Jamahiriya as "a model" for others to follow. Rice attributed the ending of the U.S.'s long break in diplomatic relations to Gaddafi's historic decision in 2003 to dismantle weapons of mass destruction and renounce terrorism as well as Libya's "excellent cooperation in response to common global threats faced by the civilized world since September 11, 2001."
Don't you know that Hamas won a large majority in the Palestinian parliament in 2006? Despite opposition efforts that ousted them, they have popular support. You cannot acheive a diplomatic solution in the region without them.
As Doeton points out, Bush negotiates with Gaddafi. That has achieved what might be Bush's only success, however limited. Though Libya has never admitted carrying out the 1988 bombing of Flight 103, it "accepted responsibility for the actions of its officials" in connection with the murder of 259 people, including 180 Americans.
Why is Condi Rice sitting down with these terrorists? Unlike Carter, she has official status.
