Photo of the day – ‘Freedom Fighters’ who befriend dictators

The current case of NSA whistleblower and self-described personal liberties advocate Edward Snowden and his cozying up with some of the world's worst offenders of personal liberties reminds us of the bad habit some "freedom fighters" have of befriending dictators. One of those is South Africa's now ailing anti-apartheid leader Nelson Mandela, who has a special place in his heart for Cuba's murderous and repressive dictator Fidel Castro.

    Such a special place that when he visited Miami, which he knew was full of Cuban exiles and Castro victims, he couldn't possibly avoid offending them by flaunting his pro-Castro stance. A class act all the way.
