Ahmad Yousuf: Obama Aides met with Hamas in Gaza

Multiple sources here, here and here are reporting that, prior to the November 4th election, Obama aides met with Hamas officials.

According to Ahmed Yusuf, an advisor to Ismail Haniyeh, the contacts were, supposedly, initiated first via email and then followed by a meeting in the Gaza Strip.

Wonder what they discussed given Barack’s earlier criticism of Jimmy Carter for talking with Hamas:   “We must not negotiate with a terrorist group intent on Israel’s destruction. We should only sit down with Hamas if they renounce terrorism, recognize Israel’s right to exist and abide by past agreements.”
