...for Hamas, which touts Carter's kowtowing as further proof of their legitimacy:
Hamas official Mushir Masri, in a fiery speech Friday to thousands of Hamas supporters in Gaza, said the meetings with Carter were proof that Hamas was not a terrorist group, but a national liberation movement.
"It confirms the failure of the U.S. and European policies of ignoring Hamas," he told the crowd. "It confirms that all the countries that assume Hamas is a terrorist group should reconsider."
Jimmah employs the same techniques he used in 1979, and gets the same results. Only now the ex-coward-in-chief is gaming the rules, and trying to pretend that these are positive results. It's probably the only way he can ease the cognitive dissonance that rages in his head -convinced he is a peacemaker because he once staged a photo-op handshake (and eventually got a prize for it), yet simultaneously realizing that much of conflict that rages in the Middle East today is a direct result of his tragic policies there as President.
So what could Jimmy do to reconcile his aching head? Why, turn his vice into a virtue, and collect what accolades he may, I suppose. Sad.
And yet...future Messiah/President Barack Obama cannot wait to go down the same foreign policy path as Brother Jimmy. Already endorsed by Hamas, expect BHO to ditch his empty election-year promise to the Jews, and practice some Carteresque fellatio on the murderous icons of the American Left.
It's gonna get ugly.
