(Washington, D.C.) – Today, Rep. Sue Myrick (NC-9) called on Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to revoke former President Jimmy Carter’s passport. This is in response to the former President traveling to Syria to meet with Hamas, an organization officially designated by the United States as a Foreign Terrorist Organization.
“Former President Carter has acted in contradiction of international agreements to isolate Hamas. He has acted in defiance of both United States policy and international policy. His actions reward terrorists, lend support, and provide legitimacy to their belief that violence will eventually get them what they want,” said Rep. Myrick.
……Congress granted the Secretary of State the power to grant and verify passports. In 1981, the United States Supreme Court held in the case of Haig v. Agee that the Secretary of State has the implied power to revoke passports as well (453 U.S. 280).
Hell, Rep. Myrick, it’s not just Jimmy Carter, it’s assclowns like Nancy Pelosi, David Bonior, Jim McDermott, and Mike Thompson. Pelosi went to Syria and kissed Assad’s rear end. Bonior, McDermott, and Thompson, aka the Baghdad Democrats, took a trip to Iraq just to let Saddam Hussein know just how much they supported him. ALL of them should have been charged with treason under the Logan Act and Article III of the U.S. Constitution.
Their citizenship should be revoked.
