Boy, talk about dodging a bullet!
Politico reports that former president and noted foreign policy expert Jimmy Carter has called for a “peace conference” to deal with Syria:
In case you missed it, Jimmy Carter said that acting without the UN or NATO would be illegal under international law. #JustSayin

The Carter Center urged against a military response to possible chemical weapons use without a U.N. mandate, saying the action would be “illegal under international law and unlikely to alter the course of the war.”
“Instead, all should seek to leverage the consensus among the entire international community, including Russia and Iran, condemning the use of chemical weapons in Syria and bringing under U.N. oversight the country’s stockpile of such weapons,” the center said in the statement.
Ladies and gentlemen, Jimmuh has spoken.
@RBPundit Of course everyone listens to Jimmy Carter…?
