Hamas: Carter holds 2nd meeting with chief in Syria

This came in from ATFP - an interesting dilemma - to talk or not to talk. The NCF position has always been to talk - but it can make waves:

DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) -- Defying U.S. and Israeli warnings, former President Carter met again on Saturday with the exiled leader of the militant Hamas group and his deputy.
The two Palestinians are considered terrorists by the U.S. government and Israel accuses them of masterminding attacks that have killed hundreds of civilians. Both governments have sharply criticized Carter's overtures to the militant group.
Carter met Khaled Mashaal and his deputy, Moussa Abu Marzouk, for about an hour Saturday morning, after more than four hours of talks the night before.
