He spent nearly three decades in prison. Known the world over as a freedom fighter and an ambassador of social justice, today Nelson Mandela is an icon whose death in 2013 at age 95 sparked mourning around the globe. President Barack Obama and a high-profile official delegation that included former presidents Jimmy Carter, George W. Bush, and Bill Clinton attended the memorial service, televised everywhere on the planet. Butif a former State Department official and reported Central Intelligence Agency operative can be believedthe U.S. government aided in Mandelas 1962 capture and thus bears some responsibility for the 27 years he spent in jail. Donald Rickard, who died in March, alleges that U.S. intelligence had a direct hand in Mandelas apprehension.

He was a Communist terrorist and murderer.
He should have been executed.
The head of South Africa’s communist party? Why would they do that?
Wnnie mendela necklasing
I consider it a triumph of my home education program that, when he died, none of my students knew who he was. #2 son had an idea he was the president of something, and #2 daughter remembered “South Africa” from the tv news at the gym, but other than that ... blank.
Maybe it was because when Mandela was incarcerated he was considered a communist. We use to be against communists and their cousins. Now we have them in our government masquerading as democrats.
why did Prezzy Obama whack Mandela’s loving friend Momar Gadaffi?
The guy was a friggin Communists who is directly responsible for the destruction of the once prosperous country of South Africa.
If the CIA had a hand in Mandella’s capture, I say good. Mandella was the head of the terror wing of the communist ANC and had regular contact with the USSR. He was convicted for about 150 terrorist bombings in South Africa and was convicted. The white SA government placed him in luxury prison confinement and offered to release him if he would stop the bombings.
His wife Winnie continued in his steps and used “necklacing”, placing a tire over an opponents head, puoring on gasoline and lighting it on fire.
After years he had a change of heart and agreed he would stop the bombing.
I think he never got the justice of necklacing and neither did his wife. That the evil racist 0bama admires him I can understand. But 0bama and the Mandellas should be ridiculed and the living scorned.
I was writing the same thing as you posted.
He was an enemy of the Apparatus at the time. There was no selling out, he was a willing player in that game and drew the short stick.
Soros’ Daily Beast runs through its paces.
I did not put the barf in the title. I probably should have. That this Mandela tyrant died a natural death is a disgrace. And that 0bama admires him does not surprise me. Both are scum.
Did anyone notice that with the fall of the Soviet Union, decades-long civil wars and conflicts in places as diverse as Angola, Mozambique, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Guatemala, the division of Yemen all ended? Didn’t that have anything to do with the collapse of the Soviet Union, did it?
Nelson Mandela is soooo yesterday !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yes, they are in bed with the Muslim Brotherhood (Barack and Hillary) but if Mr. Mandela is going to be remembered so saintly by the left, it’s a good question to raise about the actions of Barillary Cliobama.
