I nominate for Dhimmi of the Year - US Division

Not content to rest on his "laurels" as one of the worst Presidents in history, Dhimmi Jimmy is now going to toddle off and have a nice visit with those poor, misunderstood folks from Hamas.
Well, that is, unless Representative Sue Myrick, a North Carolina Republican, has her way.
Wish her luck, she's calling on Condi Rice to revoke Carter's passport.

"“Former President Carter has acted in contradiction of international agreements to isolate Hamas. He has acted in defiance of both United States policy and international policy. His actions reward terrorists, lend support, and provide legitimacy to their belief that violence will eventually get them what they want,” said Rep. Myrick. ...

Congress granted the Secretary of State the power to grant and verify passports. In 1981, the United States Supreme Court held in the case of Haig v. Agee that the Secretary of State has the implied power to revoke passports as well (453 U.S. 280). ..."

Here's the whole release:

Unlikely to happen I suppose, but it would be funny as hell.

I know well educated people who think that Carter is an absolutely splendid intellectual.

Further proof that letters after one's name proves absolutely nothing about actual intelligence.
