Busted… Jimmy Carter Is Caught Lying About Condoleezza Rice

Yesterday in an interview with CNN Jimmy Carter said that Condoleezza Rice was not telling the truth. Carter said he was never asked, or that it was even suggested to him, not to meet with Hamas on his latest romp through the Middle East.
CNN reported yesterday:

Former President Carter very politely denied Wednesday that the secretary of state or anyone else in her department had warned him against meeting with Hamas leaders during his recent trip to the Middle East.

“President Carter has the greatest respect for Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and believes her to be a truthful person,” his spokeswoman, Deanna Congileo, said Wednesday in a statement.

“However, perhaps inadvertently, she is continuing to make a statement that is not true. No one in the State Department or any other department of the U.S. government ever asked him to refrain from his recent visit to the Middle East or even suggested that he not meet with Syrian President Assad or leaders of Hamas.”

But, that is not what the headlines said on April 11, one week before Jimmy Carter met with Hamas leaders in Syria.

Every one knew he was asked not to go. His fellow “Elder” leaders knew about it and backed out of the trip because they were asked not to go.
Condoleezza’s reaction to Jimmy Carter’s meeting with Hamas leaders was even published in several news reports on April 11:

I find it hard to understand what is to be gained by having discussions with Hamas about peace when Hamas is in fact the impediment to peace,” the US secretary of state said in Washington on Friday.

And, the State Department’s reaction to Carter’s meeting even made headlines:

This was published a week before Jimmy Carter went to meet with Hamas.
CNN reported:

The Bush administration has urged former President Jimmy Carter not to go forward with plans to meet with the leader of Hamas, the U.S. State Department said Thursday.

Carter may meet with Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal next week in Damascus, Syria, during a trip to the Mideast.

The meeting originally was to include a delegation of world leaders, including former U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan and former South African President Nelson Mandela, but the group issued a statement Wednesday saying it was postponing its visit.

That statement was issued shortly after U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice spoke with Annan.

Notice that this same Carter spokesperson from yesterday was also commenting on the State Department warning a week before Carter flew to Syria. You would think that his staff would have contacted the State Department after seeing all of the headlines(?)

The truth is that Jimmy Carter didn’t care what the State Department wanted. Jimmy Carter was only thinking about himself and his warped agenda. Jimmy Carter was doing his own thing. It is obvious then. It is obvious today.

Jimmy Carter is not only an appeaser to violent American-killing terrorists.
Jimmy Carter is a lying appeaser to violent American-killing terrorists.

The Wall Street Journal calls this, “The Sad End of Jimmy Carter.”
