"He's just unilaterally going off on his own and undermining everything the international community and the United States is (sic) trying to do," protested Republican U.S. House Rep. Sue Myrick (NC-09) today in the call to revoke the passport of former president Jimmy Carter.

Myrick also wants taxpayer funds to the Carter Center, which conducts humanitarian efforts worldwide, severed. "Why," the lawmaker asks, "should we support his center when he will not support his government?"

"Frankly," the lawmaker said, "I wanted to send a strong message, because we have a policy in this country about Hamas, and he is just deliberately undermining that policy, and it's wrong.

"You know, Hamas has continually stood for terrorism against peace, and the State Department, the administration [and] Israel all opposed him going over there to meet."

Hamas has been designated as a terrorist organization by the United States, Canada, Israel and Japan.

"Any side that kills innocent people guilty of terrorism," President Carter, author of Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid, told an audience at Cairo's American University, following visits with Hamas officials and Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak. He was responding to a student that told him that he was legitimizing terrorists by speaking with Hamas leaders.

Carter also pointed out that he didn't wait until his last days in office to broker peace between Egyptian President Anwar Sadat and Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin in the late 1970s.

The following video was broadcast on Fox's America's Pulse on April 17, 2008.

I suggest Ms. Myrick find something more important to fill her time.... oh, say, the war in Iraq, the recession we aren't having, the infrastructure of our country, health care, education - heck, there must be something else she could be horrified about.

Frankly, I also suggest that Ms. Myrick (R-NC)take a look at torture, renditions, Gitmo and other unpalatable acts of ours. Unless, of course, she condones all of our actions.
