Jimmy Carter To Visit His Favorite Communist Dictators

1543141

I'm sure Jimmy will seek a private audience with American prisoner Alan Gross, and demanding the castro government release him from prison so he can return home to the States. And I am also certain he'll be visiting with the recently released Cuban prisoners of conscience ...

ATLANTA -- Former President Jimmy Carter is set to arrive in Cuba next week for a visit at the invitation of the Cuban government.

The Atlanta-based Carter Center says the ex-president and his wife Rosalynn will arrive in Havana on Monday and meet with President Raul Castro.

Carter spokeswoman Deanna Congileo said the president plans to stay until Wednesday and is set to discuss economic policies and ways to improve relations between the U.S. and Cuba.

The trip is not part of an official U.S. mission, but instead under the auspices of the not-for-profit Carter Center. Congileo said it's a follow-up to the Carters' 2002 visit to Cuba.

He never met a bloodthirsty commie bastard he didn't love ...

SEOUL — Former US President Jimmy Carter intends to visit North Korea in an apparent bid to help ease acute cross-border tensions, South Korea's foreign ministry said Thursday.

Seoul is "paying attention to Carter's plan to visit North Korea," foreign ministry spokesman Cho Byung-Jae told reporters, calling it "a personal trip."

"All the communications currently under way for the visit are purely private talks... and the US government also said his trip would be a personal visit," he said.

Carter has been in talks with the North's UN mission in New York to arrange his trip to Pyongyang, Yonhap news agency said.

"He will likely visit the North about a month later," a diplomatic source was quoted as saying.

Former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, ex-Irish president Mary Robinson and former Norwegian prime minister Gro Harlem Brundtland may go together with Carter, Yonhap said.

The 2002 Nobel Peace Prize laureate made a landmark visit to Pyongyang in 1994 when the US came close to war with North Korea over its nuclear programme, helping defuse the crisis through talks with then-leader Kim Il-Sung.

He also visited the isolated communist state in August last year to secure the release of an American held there for illegal entry. [...]

    I can already see jimmy kissing castro's and kim's asses non-stop from arrival to departure. What an embarrasment, but sadly, not a surprise.

    As you mention, Alan Gross will be on the agenda and don't doubt that he will be released, as castro--in the manner of medieval feudal lords--will usually show he magnanimity and good will by releasing prisoners into the hands of visiting dignitaries.

    It offers him an opportunity to again capture front page news and to have the sycophantic mainstream media again praise how he is reforming. No doubt, a comparison will be made between the release of Alan Gross and the USA's continued refusal to release the so-called "Cuban 5". Of course, Carter will also make the obligatory "lift the embargo" appeal and praise his host, yada, yada.

    I hope Jeff Flake is proud of how his thoughts are similar to Carter's

    Classic photo: Jimmy in all his retard-hick-from-Deliverance glory, with that eternal idiotic grin, as if that somehow made him more palatable, when it's precisely the opposite. Man, he irks me.
