Carter Again Proves He's The Useful Idiot Of Terrorists
Well put by Ed Morrissey:
... just as clueless 30 years ago as he proved himself to be this week. Carter had everything but Neville Chamberlain's umbrella as he returned with a supposed agreement by Hamas to recognize Israel and accede to a peace deal negotiated by Mahmoud Abbas and approved by referendum. However, Hamas immediately pulled the rug out from under Carter, exposing his idiocy...More at Hot Air.
In other words, Hamas has once again pulled the wool over the near-blind (as in no one is blinder than those who refuse to see...) eyes of Jimmuh Carter. His being made a fool by enemies of the United States and damaging our national security interests is a role that this useful idiot of terrorists continues to embrace, long after his disastrous presidency:
Carter's arrogant, misguided attempt at freelance diplomacy was in direct defiance of American foreign policy, and went against the advice of Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and members of Congress.Carter and America desperately need him to go back to doing the only thing he's ever done well - building houses for the poor who can't afford to sue him for shoddy work.
Carter asked Khaled Mashaal to stop Hamas rocket attacks on Israel and to start talking to the Israeli prime minister about a prisoner exchange.
Not surprisingly, all Carter got in response was word that Hamas would get back to him with a reply ''in the coming days.''
But Hamas got what it wanted from Carter --Êa former U.S. president begging its favor. Carter only helps to validate Hamas' claim to legitimacy as a player in Mideast. After the meeting, a Hamas spokesman told The Associated Press, ''Political isolation (of Hamas) by the American administration has begun to crumble.''
In short, Hamas made a monkey out of Carter, just as Ayatollah Khomeini did in 1979 when Carter was president and allowed then-U.S. ally Iran to be taken over by hostile Islamic radicals. Carter went on to let the radicals dance on his face for more than a year as they held 52 U.S. embassy staffers hostage. Not until Ronald Reagan brought common sense and an iron will to the White House were the hostages released.
Carter's impotence as president emboldened the Islamists and we're still dealing with the lethal consequences of Carter's failure.
Somebody shred his passport, please.
