Jimmy Carter Worried Supreme Court Ruling Will Affect His Work With Terrorists
Unreal. America’s worst president Jimmy Carter is worried that the Supreme Court’s ruling yesterday will affect his work with terrorist organizations like Hamas and Hezbollah.
Let’s hope so.
CNS News reported, via Free Republic:
Former President Jimmy Carter has voiced concern that Monday’s Supreme Court ruling on “material support” to terrorist groups may criminalize his “work to promote peace and freedom.”
Carter, whose advocacy has entailed contact with groups designated by the U.S. government as “foreign terrorist organizations” (FTOs) – notably Hamas and Hezbollah – said he was disappointed by the court decision.
The high court, in a 6-3 decision, upheld a federal law that forbids providing “material support” to an FTO, ruling that it can be applied to U.S. organizations whose engagement with terrorists involves promoting non-violent solutions to conflicts.
The law, part of the post-9/11 USA Patriot Act, forbids the provision of any aid, defined as including “service,” “training” or “expert advice or assistance,” to a designated FTO.
Of course, it surprises no one that a democrat would be concerned about his terrorist ties.
