U.S. has Mandela on terrorist list

WASHINGTON — Nobel Peace Prize winner and international symbol of freedom Nelson Mandela is flagged on U.S. terrorist watch lists and needs special permission to visit the USA. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice calls the situation "embarrassing," and some members of Congress vow to fix it.
The requirement applies to former South African leader Mandela and other members of South Africa's governing African National Congress (ANC), the once-banned anti-Apartheid organization. In the 1970s and '80s, the ANC was officially designated a terrorist group by the country's ruling white minority. Other countries, including the United States, followed suit.
Because of this, Rice told a Senate committee recently, her department has to issue waivers for ANC members to travel to the USA.

It is a good thing that Nelson Mandela is on the Terror Watch List, and hopefully he will stay on it indefinitely. Nelson Mandela is a tireless defender of human dignity and a shameless advocate of social equality and human rights, furthermore he's an advocate of Democratic rule.

Such a person cannot be considered as anything but a danger to the number one purveyor of violence and repression in the world; the godfather uncle Sam, who acts and behaves more like a mafia don, than a respectable country.

Would those rebel Americans who fought against the British in their war over an independent America end up on the same Terror Watch List if time travel was possible?
I guess rules are rules and we can't make any exceptions, right?

Tricky, this is the US we're talking about. No reason to use reason in our decisions.
