Mandela still on US terrorist list

WASHINGTON, May 1 (UPI) -- Nelson Mandela, South Africa's Nobel Prize-winning symbol of hope for leading the fight against apartheid, is reported still on U.S. terrorist watch lists.

His inclusion means Mandela must have special permission to enter the United States, USA Today said Thursday.

U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice calls it "embarrassing" and some members of Congress vow to fix it, hopefully by Mandela's 90th birthday on July 18.

The same entry requirements apply to other members of South Africa's governing African National Congress, the once-banned anti-apartheid organization.

In the 1970s and '80s the ANC was officially branded a terrorist group by the ruling white minority government.


I had to search this out and read, to believe it! It goes to show how terrorist-branding works and for how long this concept has been operational. Today, as we are witnessing in America, that dog has gone mad and is all set to bite its very own master. "U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice calls it "embarrassing" and some members of Congress vow to fix it, hopefully by Mandela's 90th birthday on July 18." Incredible! To fix it, hopefully by Mandela's 90th birthday on July 18. It's nearly four decades and it's still being fixed! Need anyone speak about America's drug-driven incompetence! This is as doped up as clowns can possibly get!!!
