Former President Jimmy Carter’s upcoming meeting with senior officials of the Palestinian terror group Hamas is not “in the interest of peace,” according to State Department spokesman Sean McCormack.
……Carter will travel to Syria next week for an unprecedented meeting with the senior leadership of Hamas. The State Department has designated Hamas a “foreign terrorist organization,” a stance McCormack reiterated.
The State Department had “counseled the former president about having such a meeting,” he said. “U.S. policy is that Hamas is a terrorist organization; we don’t believe its in the interest of our policy or in the interest of peace to have such a meeting.”
Carter originally was slated to travel throughout the Mideast with a group of statesmen and philanthropists including Kofi Annan, the former secretary-general of the United Nations, but Carter now will be traveling without the group.
……Hamas “welcomed the request.” The meeting will take place on April 18, he said.
Not in the interest of peace? How about enforcing the Logan Act for a fucking change?
Send a message to these self-appointed nihilist liaisons that what they’re doing is not only against U.S. foreign policy, but constitutes treason.
Carter’s accessories for the trip were supposed to include Kofi Anan and former Irish President Mary Robinson, two other morally bankrupt dregs, who continue their feckless behavior long after they’ve left office.

Strange how they only seem to find the time to meet and associate with some of the world’s worst malignancies.
Birds of a feather.
