Jimmy Carter Wins Nobel Peace Prize

This is an old story, Jimmy won the Nobel "Peace" Prize in 2002, previous winner was Yasir Arafat a known terrorist so the people giving out the awards are little suspicious...His peace work with North Korea(the country that is testing out nukes right now!) was a big clincher in him winning...President Clinton, his Secretaty of State Madeline Albright and Jimmy all went to have "peace talks" with this miniature Hitler. Negotiating with liars and madmen...Good Plan..

Below is part of an interview with Carter after he negotiated with the Communists in North Korea.

Jimmy Carter, interview with CNN (upon his return from North Korea), June 22, 1994

JUDY WOODRUFF: .... Are you absolutely persuaded that the North Koreans are going to honor this agreement, that while the talks are going on that it's not just a matter of buying time on the part of the North Koreans, that they will not secretly pursue the program they were pursuing earlier, nuclear program?

JIMMY CARTER: Judy, I'm convinced. But I said this when I got back from North Korea, and people said that I was naive or gullible and so forth. I don't think I was. In my opinion, this was one of those perfect agreements where both sides won and got what they wanted and there were no-nobody blinked, nobody had to yield.... I think the most important lesson is that we should not ever avoid direct talks, direct conversations, direct discussions and negotiations with the main person in a despised or misunderstood or condemned society who could actually resolve the issue. And we went through this for ten years when nobody in our government would meet or talk to Yasir Arafat. The Norwegians did, and they were the ones that brought the peace agreement last summer....
