Mandela Interviewed

Mandela is interviewed about his, The U.S.A. Is a Threat to World Peace, comment.

I gather you are particularly concerned about Vice President Cheney?
Well, there is no doubt. He opposed the decision to release me from prison [laughs]. The majority of the U.S. Congress was in favor of my release, and he opposed it. But it�s not because of that. Quite clearly we are dealing with an arch-conservative in Dick Cheney.

Which isn’t one of the more pretinant comments but still quite an ironic situation.
