[[ Another leftist lets the mask slip. Jonathan Alter believes that violent criminals imprisoned for their crimes are political prisoners. ]]

Mandela WAS NOT a "political prisoner" -- he was tried and jailed as a terrorist whose actions had directly resulted in the deaths of several individuals.

At the time, Amnesty International wouldn't even touch his case, for exactly that reason.

While behind bars, he was TRANSFORMED into a "political" prisoner by the media and by others with an agenda.

Someone made an excellent remark by saying Mandela was a good example of why capital punishment should not have been abolished in many places.

If he had received the punishment he truly deserved, he would never have become the phony symbol that he did...
