Jimmy "Dhimmi" Carter Meeting With Terrorist Group Hamas

This of course isn't big news. Carter has never met a despot or terrorist he didn't absolutely love (unless they were pro-America).
Speaking from Katmandu, Nepal, where he and a team of observers from the Carter Center monitored national elections, Carter said the U.S. and other parties should not require "pre-requisites" before meeting with the terror group. Hamas has not renounced violence, regularly bombs Israeli towns near its stronghold of Gaza and refuses to recognize Israel's existence.

"Well, you can't always get prerequisites adopted by other people before you even talk to them," Carter said in an interview taped Saturday but aired Sunday on ABC News' "This Week." [...]

Several State Department officials, including the secretary, Condoleezza Rice, criticized his plans. Carter said he had not heard the objections directly, although a State Department spokesman said earlier that a senior official from the department had called the former president.

The State Department says it advised Carter twice against meeting representatives of Hamas, which Washington lists as a terrorist organization.

"I find it hard to understand what is going to be gained by having discussions with Hamas about peace when Hamas is, in fact, the impediment to peace," Rice said Friday, after reports of the planned meeting surfaced.
My favorite line though is Carter calling for "peace with justice." It shows just what a naïve dumbass he is. Why? Because there's only one kind of peace, and it comes with victory, not justice. You win a conflict when your enemy has been utterly demoralized and beaten and asks to stop fighting because they simply cannot go on. Anything else is just a ceasefire.
