Joshua Goodman of AP reports on Carter’s expressed interest in going to Caracas:
Carter, a mediator of past political conflict in the deeply polarized South American nation, made the offer in private letters he sent this week to President Nicolas Maduro and opposition leader Henrique Capriles.
Expressing "grave concern" about the loss of life in recent protests and the risk of more conflict ahead, Carter in the letter to Capriles said that for dialogue aimed at easing tensions to succeed both sides must "send signals of their willingness to alleviate the present state of tension."
For the opposition, that means making clear its commitment to act within constitutional limits and strongly reject violence, the Nobel peace laureate wrote. In turn the government must guarantee the right to peaceful protest and impartial justice for jailed protesters.
"It is difficult for elected officials from opposition parties to resolve differences when they feel threatened and persecuted," Carter wrote.

I plan a trip to Plains....
I can’t wait to get my extra federal holiday.
All that execrable old b@st@rd will come back with is what a fine chap maduro is. Birds of a feather roost together.
Why can’t just stay home?
Jimmy,just go pick your peanuts and stay away from politics.
I hope the opposition doesn’t fall for this crap. Dictator-lover has already told the opposition to shut up
Like flies to a pile of dung...
Only one side is killing, oppressing and torturing
They can have their own retard contest.
Is he going to help Putin select a good location for a base?????????????
Jimmy is Obama’s thin red line.
Well he certainly has aged well, hasn’t he? /s
where else would you expect a guy who adores commie dictators to go?
Why can't he just stay THERE?
The pressure is off Jimmy since Obama got re-elected.
His own country is going to hell in a hand basket, and he is dogooding in Venezuela? What a dolt!
dobadding in VZ
Who gives a flying $h*t?? This incompetent fool isn’t dead yet?
> What could go wrong?
He might come back.
“Carter, a mediator of past political conflict in the deeply polarized South American nation, made the offer in private letters he sent this week to President Nicolas Maduro and opposition leader Henrique Capriles.”
I guess this senile old bastard is still trying to salvage his disastrous presidency. I’m hoping he goes there and gets involved in some life threatening deal and somehow doesn’t make it back.
“It is difficult for elected officials from opposition parties to resolve differences when they feel threatened and persecuted,” Carter wrote.
Why yes Jimma, we here at the Tea Party have noticed
the threats and persecution directed towards us from
the current administation yet we are resolved to
stand firm in our defense of what we believe is right
Try not to look too much the fool on your trip, it
makes us appear weak. Ok?
Time to go home, Jimm-ay!
