U.S. has Mandela on terrorist list

Apparently, the name Nelson Mandela did not raise any flags and get the attention of those that are in charge of monitoring such information or perhaps it was not an oversight afterall. Either way, it’s laughable, right along with the legitimacy of any terrorist list that is designated by the world’s biggest war criminal.

Mandela still on U.S. terrorist lists

WASHINGTON (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.
