Doofus of the Day: Ramsey Clark Hearts Hamas
JERUSALEM – Former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark visited the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip Wednesday on a solidarity mission.
Clark met with Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh to begin a three-day visit. He plans to meet with human rights activists and visit relatives of people killed during Israel’s military offensive into Gaza two years ago.
Clark didn’t comment to reporters, but Haniyeh’s office said they discussed Israel’s blockade of Gaza and a recent escalation in Israeli-Palestinian fighting.
The visit places Clark at odds with American foreign policy, which shuns Hamas as a terrorist group. A longtime critic of U.S. military policy in the Middle East, Clark served Saddam Hussein’s defense team.
