Nelson Mandela, Nearing 90, Is A Terrorist
So is the entire African National Congress. They're not allowed to travel to the United States without a waiver, because the old Afrikaaner party dubbed the ANC a terrorist organization. Howard Berman, chair of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, introduced a bill last week to remove all ANC references from Who's Who Among Terrorists. Condi Rice authoritatively weighed in after 4 years of running the State Department:
"It is frankly a rather embarrassing matter that I still have to waive in my own counterparts - the foreign minister of South Africa, not to mention the great leader, Nelson Mandela."I hear ya, Condi. It must be, like, hell.
