Jimmy Carter on Meeting Castro: We Welcomed Each Other Like Old Friends!
(AP) — Carter arrived Monday with his wife Rosalynn for a three-day stay on the island. Carter also visited Cuba in 2002, and is the only former U.S. president to do so since the 1959 revolution.
|– Carter did not demand freedom for the 11-million Cubans currently enslaved on the island, Carter instead demanded that the U.S. release the 5 Cuban spies: “Those are the same five convicted Cuban spies who are serving prison time for espionage and the murder of four innocent American pilots who were shot down over international waters by Castro MiGs.”

|CARTER’S EVIL LEGACY
Many believe Jimmy Carter is a naive farmer who became the global useful idiot. However, for decades Carter has been consistent in his support and love for leftist despots and islamic dictators. We need to realize that, despite appearances, Carter is not an idiot — he is evil. How many lives have been lost or negatively impacted by Carter’s misdeeds?
|Carter cut off aid to El Salvador, which was fighting a Communist insurgency, but gave more than $90 million in aid to the Marxist Nicaraguan Sandinistas. He soon halted diplomatic recognition of U.S. allies in Taiwan and recognized Beijing in their place. Though he declared that “human rights is the soul of our foreign policy,” he showered accolades upon Tito, Ceausescu, Ortega, and Kim il-Sung (the last, after his presidency).
Meanwhile, Carter’s brother Billy tried to open trade relations with Libya in 1978 after depositing a generous $220,000 “loan” from Mu’ammar Qadhafi. Billy Carter registered as an agent of a foreign government two years later. […]
|[Carter] who, during his presidency, abandoned two key strategic allies of the Western world (Nicaragua and Iran) and left them prey to the anti-American sharks who devoured them.
In the name of some vague and obscure “human rights” doctrine, Carter withdrew support from the Somoza regime in Nicaragua and facilitated the coming to power of the Marxist Sandinistas there in 1979. With the backing of Castro’s Cuba and the Soviet regime, the Sandinistas posed a significant threat to their Central American neighbors and to U.S. security interests throughout the 1980s.
Carter also chastised the Shah of Iran for his human rights record and withdrew American support. This led to the U.S. losing a priceless pro-Western ally in the Middle East – an ally that was replaced by the deranged anti-Western Islamic theocracy of the Ayatollah Khomeini.
…Somoza and the Shah…regimes were like a Sunday school class in comparison to the ruthless dictatorships that took their place. The Sandinistas in Nicaragua by far surpassed their predecessor in human rights violations. The Khomeini theocracy, meanwhile, was a whole other story:
Khomeini killed more innocent Iranians (20,000) in a two-week reign of terror than the Shah could have even dreamed of killing throughout his 38 years in power (1941-1979).
…The Soviets saw him to be so gullible, weak and inept that they did not even hesitate to invade Afghanistan under his watch in 1979. Imagine the Soviets even contemplating invading Afghanistan under Reagan’s watch.
The Soviet invasion of Afghanistan also played a large role in nurturing the future Islamic terror that would so badly wound America. The Taliban, after all, were the backlash to the Soviet terror in Afghanistan. They took power in 1996 because they were strengthened by their rebellion against Soviet injustice.
Thus, when all is said and done, it is Jimmy Carter who helped pave the road to the rise of Islamic fanaticism and, therefore, to 9/11.
But Carter still thinks he has something to teach the world.
|Carter is giving Marxist dictator Fidel Castro the same loving kiss of comradeship and support that then-President Carter once stood on tiptoe to give to Soviet dictator Leonid I. Brezhnev.
Why does Jimmy Carter, arguably the smallest, meanest and most incompetent soul ever to be President, hold such views? One answer may be greed. Carter’s motive in attacking Israel becomes clear the instant one sees how many millions of dollars his Carter Center in Atlanta has pocketed from Arab leaders and interests. Many wealthy multinational corporations are eager to profit from the end of America’s trade embargo against Castro, and it would be fascinating to follow their money and see how much is going to the Carter Center and related groups and individuals.
But Mr. Carter…also seems possessed by other demons, including Leftist ideology and loony idealism…
Among those in whose service Jimmy Carter has put his lips, as noted by National Review’s Jay Nordlinger and Frank Gaffney, Jr., of the Center for Security Policy, are these: the Marxist dictator Ceausescu of Romania (of whom Carter said “Our goals are the same….”); Syrian mass murderer and Soviet ally Hafez al-Assad; Ethiopian mass murderer Mengistu; and North Korean Marxist madman Kim Il Sung [of whose totalitarian state with which we fought the Korean War, Carter said “I don’t see that they are an outlaw nation.”].
Jimmy Carter was a relentless supporter of the Castro-aligned Marxist Sandinistas of Nicaragua, doing all in his power to keep their leader Daniel Ortega in power and undermine President Ronald Reagan’s attempts to restore freedom to this Central America nation. And both as President and since, Carter has befriended Fidel Castro and sought to end the bipartisan trade embargo against this country (the same kind of embargo Carter eagerly supported against non-Communist white-ruled Rhodesia and apartheid South Africa).
Carter has always claimed to favor “human rights.” In the name of such rights he as President withdrew U.S. support for the Shah of Iran because the Shah had imprisoned (and in some cases tortured) about 3,000 people, many of them agents of the Soviet Union bordering his nation. Because of Carter, this pro-Western leader was replaced by the fanatic anti-Western Muslim theocracy of the Ayatollah Khomeni.
The Ayatollah’s dictatorship immediately put more than 20,000 pro-Western Iranians before firing squads. It reversed the Shah’s opening to Western culture and rolled back the equal rights he had extended to women. And it promptly plunged Iran into war with neighboring Iraq, a war that never would have happened with the Shah in power – a war that killed more than 500,000 people. It also created the regional instabilities that led to Iraq’s later invasion of Kuwait and to Operation Desert Storm, which cost the lives of hundreds of thousands more.
And the Ayatollah’s overthrow of a major American-aligned leader on the Persian Gulf inspired many thousands of Muslim fanatics to destabilize their own modernizing nations in hopes of likewise creating medieval theocracies and making women again submissive.
Jimmy Carter is therefore part of the reason why Osama bin Laden operatives slammed airliners into the World Trade Center and Pentagon last September 11th. —-
