    Now that I got your attention, you might get a chuckle out of this article. It's not really new news, but I'm always fascinated by bureaucratic oversights. http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20080619/ts_nm/usa_mandela_dc I'm sure there are actually some people out there that think we should send him to Gitmo for a good waterboarding just to be on the safe side.icon_lol.gif

    Just read Mandela's autobiography! He definitely supported terrorist activity to end the apartheid. That being said, he did a lot of good things, too. Where does one draw the line?

    One man's freedom fighter is another man's terrorist, the distinction usually being made by the perspective one has on the situation at hand. Only through wide-ranging, broad-source education is this sort of thing overcome...and even then, because politics is personal and people are by nature selfish, there's no certain resolve.

    So, yeah....icon_confused.gif

    He is gonna be 90 and is clearly not a threat to the US at all. I don't see a problem with the removal of his name off that list.
