Sue Myrick: Revoke Carter’s Passport

Press release by Sue Myrick (R-NC)

(Washington, D.C.) – Today, Rep. Sue Myrick (NC-9) called on Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to revoke former President Jimmy Carter’s passport.  This is in response to the former President traveling to Syria to meet with Hamas, an organization officially designated by the United States as a Foreign Terrorist Organization.

“Former President Carter has acted in contradiction of international agreements to isolate Hamas.  He has acted in defiance of both United States policy and international policy.  His actions reward terrorists, lend support, and provide legitimacy to their belief that violence will eventually get them what they want,” said Rep. Myrick. 

After Hamas won the 2006 Palestinian parliamentary elections the Quartet (US, UN, EU and Russia) called on Hamas to renounce terror, recognize Israel and recognize the previous agreements between the Palestinian Authority and Israel as they seek an agreement to make peace.  Hamas has categorically rejected these three conditions for more than two years.

Congress granted the Secretary of State the power to grant and verify passports.  In 1981, the United States Supreme Court held in the case of Haig v. Agee that the Secretary of State has the implied power to revoke passports as well (453 U.S. 280). 

Democrats will amp up the Seething Scale to a 10 if Rice tries it. Which is another reason she should do it. Then the story will be all over the news, and people will see Democrats for the terrorist supporters they really are.

    Great idea! Let’s also revoke the passports of all those who traveled to Baghdad to meet with Saddam. And while we’re at it, let revoke passports of those who still travel to Kuwait or to Oman to meet with the dictators of those countries who arbitrarily jail and kill dissidents. And the passports of those who are caught traveling to Uzbekistan to cozy up to the murderous rulers there. The entire Bush administration past and present will soon be unable to leave the country.
