23. Another indication that something is up? i.e. an attack on Iran???

Remember all ex-presidents are entitled to continued to get CIA reports. From what I have read, only Bush the Elder continued to listen to them after he left office (this was read while Bush Jr was President so it is unknown if Bush jr is doing as his daddy had been doing). On the other hand, since all ex-Presidents can still get those reports, it is also possible for people in the CIA to contact them to give them reports (what they can ask for, can also be sent to them). Now Carter can NOT reveal what he has been told, nor say anything that reflects what he has been told AND is still classified, but he can make general statements like the one he has. Thus just one more point that indicate that at least Carter suspects something is up in the Middle East.

Carter may have used this trip to Israel to try to point out the problems with a military solution to the Middle East, this may be based on reports sent to him, or may just be based on the fact he is in Israel at the present time. i.e No secret CIA report, but just an observation based in him being in Israel along with the Former President of Ireland and Prime Minster of Norway. Sorry, waiting till he return home would have less effect not only in the US but also in Israel, the rest of the Middle East and Europe.

Yes it is bad timing for the US Presidential elections, but if he waited it would have less effect for it would be his observation alone, not one shared by two other former heads of States.
