I believe in the free speech that liberals used to believe in, the economic freedom that conservatives used to believe in, and the personal freedom that America used to believe in.

Condi Rice: We Told Carter Not To Meet With Hamas

Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice is refuting a statement by former President Carter about his trip to the Middle East:

KUWAIT CITY, April 22– Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice Tuesday refuted a statement by former president Jimmy Carter that no one in the U.S. government told him not to go on a trip to the Middle East, where he met with the leadership of the militant group Hamas.

“I just don’t want there to be any confusion,” Rice told reporters outside an international meeting on Iraq she is attending here. “The United States is not going to deal with Hamas, and we certainly told President Carter that meeting with Hamas was not going to help” the situation in the Middle East.

And, as the statement from Hamas’s leader after Cater left proves, Rice is absolutely correct.

Jimmy Carter: Dumbass or Dangerous ? You decide.
