Hugs for Thugs: Carter Meets With Hamas Leader in Syria

Failed president Jimmy Carter hits the daily double: He meets with the leader of a terrorist organization in a terrorist state. I guess if you asked Carter if there's a terrorist leader he wouldn't meet with, I suspect he might say it's George Bush.
Former President Jimmy Carter met with the leader of Hamas in Damascus on Sunday, the same day the Palestinian terrorist group marked its 21st anniversary and signaled its intention to end an erratically-upheld ceasefire.

It was Carter’s second meeting in the Syrian capital with Khaled Meshaal, whose group has been designated a foreign terrorist organization by the United States. Carter's previous visit to Damascus, last April, drew criticism from the State Department and Israel.

Carter said then, and since, that the search for peace requires dialogue with all sides.

Carter also held talks with Syrian President Bashar Assad, who praised his peace-making efforts, according to the official Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA).
Of couse the chinless ophthalmologist would praise Carter. Without him, these terror states and organizations wouldn't be nearly as strong as they are.

Amazingly, one group of terrorists refuse to meet with the feckless Carter.
The former president’s visit to Damascus followed one to Lebanon, where he met with a number of political leaders and parties but was rebuffed by the Shi’ite terrorist group, Hezbollah.
