He said...She Said

He said.  She said.  Whom do you believe?

"President Carter has the greatest respect for ... Rice and believes her to be a truthful person. However, perhaps inadvertently, she is continuing to make a statement that is not true," a statement issued by the Carter center in Atlanta said on Wednesday.

"No one in the State Department or any other department of the U.S. government ever asked him (Carter) to refrain from his recent visit to the Middle East or even suggested that he not meet with Syrian President (Bashar) Assad or leaders of Hamas," it said.

She said
"The United States is not going to deal with Hamas and we certainly told President Carter that we did not think that meeting with Hamas was going to help the Palestinians," Rice said Tuesday while attending a conference in Kuwait.
In other words Carter bluntly called Rice a liar while Rice was more diplomatic regarding Carter. 

Could they both be right? Could each have misunderstood the other?  Either way, Carter's meddling validated a violently terrorist group--even if he may have been used as an advance man for the State Department.
