America’s Worst Ex-President Ever

Continues his Neville Chamberlain Revivial World Tour.

Fresh from rooting for Maoists monitoring elections in Nepal*, he’s off to start talks on preemptive concessions to Hamas.

“The 83-year-old former president said he will also meet with Hamas's rival Fatah as well as with the Israelis, Syrians, Egyptians, Jordanians and Saudis.

`If Israel is ever going to find peace with justice concerning the
relationship with their next-door neighbors,' said Carter, Hamas will have to be included in the process.'

`I think that it's very important that at least someone meet with the Hamas leaders to express their views, ' to encourage them to halt attacks on Israelis and cooperate with Fatah `and maybe to get them to agree to a cease-fire,' Carter said.”

Is there no barbarian that this guy doesn't want to be snuggle bunnies with?

I’m not sure that the notion that noone has an inkling about the views of Hamas’ leadership has much credibility to anyone other than Carter. Hamas has made it’s position known over the years, usually with explosives.

And the Obama campaign can’t be happy about President Carter’s diplomatic freelancing. After all, do they really want to remind the public of what Senator Obama’s meet with anybody plan really looks like?

* with the Maoists apparently winning, it’s time to place Nepal – not a country in great shape to start with – on the killing fields watch list.
