Jimmy Carter Wants to Ease Sanctions on Terror Groups


Liberals and terrorists. Buddies that go together like peas and carrots.
Check it out:

Former President Jimmy Carter is trying to convince the US government to ease up the sanctions on terrorists groups so peace groups are able to work with them. Carter and other do-gooders have petitioned Secretary of State John Kerry to exempt peace organizations from rules that “make it a crime to offer negotiation training and humanitarian law classes to terror groups.”

“The Secretary of State can, and should, exempt peacebuilding activities from this counterproductive application of the law,” says the petition. “Doing so would open the door for professional peacebuilders to fully engage in helping to end armed conflicts and suffering around the world, while making the U.S. safer.”

The Charity and Security Network is spearheading the petition. “The organization told The Hill that in the past efforts to build bridges with the Taliban in Afghanistan, Hamas in the Palestinian territories and leftist guerrillas in Colombia have all been stymied.” WAIT, WHAT? Where’s the problem?
