Carter Meeting with Leader of Hamas?

U.S., Israel Criticize Carter Plans to See Hamas

WASHINGTON - The U.S. State Department said on Thursday it had advised former President Jimmy Carter against meeting the leader of Hamas in Syria next week, saying it went against U.S. policy of isolating the militant group.

Carter plans to visit Israel, the West Bank, Egypt, Syria, Saudi Arabia and Jordan during a nine-day trip due to start on Sunday but gave no details of specific meetings.

"This is a study mission and our purpose is not to negotiate but to support and provide momentum for current efforts to secure peace in the Middle East," the Carter Center said in a statement.

"Our delegation has considerable experience in the region, and we go there with an open mind and heart to listen and learn from all parties," it said.

Jimmy Carter, being a former president, isn't like the average citizen or professor going on these visits. It's going to be viewed differently. It could be considered, simply because he is visiting, a vote of no-confidence in a sitting president and even worse. It could result in a very dangerous situation. I don't like the odds!
