Harry Belafonte Speaks at Duke

Linked to from Drudge.

Oh good gravy. Need I say more? Here are some quotes. It feels like he is trying to backpedal off his earlier comments.

What is the essential difference in quality of our humanity for those who would do the cruel and tragic deed of flying an airplane into a building and killing 3,000 innocent Americans and those who would lie and lead the nation into a war that has killed hundreds of thousands? [emphasis mine]

Belafonte said: King was called "a Communist, a rabble-rouser, a discontent" but "he stayed the course," Belafonte said. Nelson Mandela also was labeled "a terrorist and a Communist and a man who was a danger to democracy," he said.

So now what? Is Bush a GOOD guy for being a terrorist (like Mandela or King) or a BAD guy for being a terrorist (like Zawahiri or Bin Laden)?
