Skip to comments.Carter: ‘Inappropriate’ for U.S. to Block Member of Terrorist Group from Entering Country
Posted on 04/05/2014 9:17:35 AM PDT by LSUfan
Former President Jimmy Carter yesterday said he is supportive of letting a known member of a terrorist group, Hamid Aboutalebi, into the United States as Irans newest ambassador to the United Nations.
Aboutalebi was a member of the Muslim student group who held 52 Americans hostage at the U.S. Embassy in Tehran for more than a year beginning in 1979 during Carters presidency.
When asked in an interview if the United States should block Aboutalebis entrance to U.N. headquarters in New York, Carter told radio station WTOP: You know, those were college students at that time, and I think that they have matured.
I think it would be inappropriate for the United States to try to block someone that Iran wanted to choose.

Words fail me......I’ll ditto what you said, #1.....you said it best.
Yeah, Jimmy, you were really successful dealing with Iran.
Depose the Shah, put a terrorist in charge, and screw up when they invade our embassy and take our diplomats prisoner.
Maybe you’d like to be the next Ambassador to Iran. I’m sure Barry would really appreciate it if you offered to take the job.
Maybe he could stay at Jimmuh’s house. They could reminisce about the good ol’ days.
Jimmy Carter is pro-Islamist and an antisemite. Screw him.
I just want my extra federal holiday. I can’t wait.
Same exact bullstalin we were told about Bill Ayers, John Kerry, et al.
“... those were college students at that time, and I think that they have matured ...”
Right, they’ve matured into world class terrorists, you idiot Jimmuh.
They wuz jes college students...
Will this old moron never leave us in peace?
When he does go , the liberals will be slobbering
all over themselves about what a “great” man he was.
Eight men died during the aborted attempt to
rescue American hostages held captive in Iran.
Five of them were airmen from the
8th Special Operations Squadron at Hurlburt Field, Fla.
They were Marine helicopter crewmen.
Carter is an idiot. He was then and he is now. Of course, being a democrat, I guess that goes without saying.
Are bitterness and stupidity the keys to long life? It works for Jimmy.
J. Carter: I came, I saw, Iran.
Considering Carter sent in a Delta group to kill the hostage takers, it seems funny he wants to make nice now. I tried to kill you but never mind.
Put Jimmeh and Harry in charge of the Rubber Room squad.
< spit >
He also claims to be a Christian, or at least he did in the past. I just don't believe him.
“Carter is an idiot. He was then and he is now. Of course, being a democrat, I guess that goes without saying”
I think they probably fall into 3 categories.
Stupid, Dependent, or Emotionally Irrational
He should go to Saudi Arabia and pass out bibles then if he’s such the Christian he claims.
I say this because he is in the Saudis’ pocket.
Still battling with Obama for the bottom spot honors...
He certainly is a national disgrace.
