Only Fools And Carter Rush In
So, Jimmay is willing to meet with a former Iranian President. And the Iranians reached out to him? Might that be because the last time they dealt with Carter they took an embassy, several hostages and eventually Iran itself – along with any Carter hope for a second term?
In case it slips any minds, eight American servicemen died in a failed operation some attribute in part to Carter’s mishandling of, not only the military, including Special Forces, but also the CIA. His continued feckless meddling with Iran is the ultimate betrayal of their memory.
No intelligence was coming out of Iran because Carter had dismantled the CIA’s network of spies due to the agency’s role in overthrowing governments in Vietnam and Latin America.
But, as always, Carter is willing to talk. Unfortunately, that’s the one thing he hasn’t stopped doing since this country threw him away. And here he had everyone convinced he was a farmer at the time. Oh well, how are you going to keep them down on the farm, once they’ve governed like they’re from Pari’.
For an event that would turn a page in American history, former president Jimmy Carter has agreed in principle to host former Iranian president Mohammad Khatami for talks during his visit to the United States starting this week.
Carter’s term as president was dominated by the rupture in relations after the 1979 Iranian revolution and the takeover of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, where 52 Americans were held hostage for 444 days until the day he left office.
Iranians made the overture for the meeting, and the Carter Center in Atlanta is working on the possible timing, said Phil Wise, the former president’s aide.
