Mandela again: Former South African president and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Nelson "can't think properly" Mandela has done it again.
Like a 5-year-old child who sticks his fingers in his ears and says: "Naaaaa Naaaaaa Naaaa, I'm not listening to you," Mandela doesn't want to hear what the United States wants to say.
Speaking before Powell's speech to the world body, Mandela said chief UN weapons inspectors Hans Blix and Mohamed El Baradei were the only ones with the authority to determine whether Iraq was complying with U.N. resolutions.
"We are going to listen to them and to them alone. We are not going to listen to the United States of America. They are not telling us how they got that information," Mandela told reporters.
It's called satellites and spies Mr. Mandela.
Mandela also said he would visit Iraq and speak with Saddam Hussein if the U.N. asked him to go.
Fidel Castro. Robert Mugabe. Now Mandela can add Saddam Hussein to the list of brutal dictators with whom he's associated.
