Belafonte Calls Bush 'Greatest Terrorist'

By IAN JAMES, Associated Press Writer Sun Jan 8, 8:59 PM ET

CARACAS, Venezuela - The American singer and activist Harry Belafonte called President Bush "the greatest terrorist in the world" on Sunday and said millions of Americans support the socialist revolution of Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez.

Belafonte led a delegation of Americans including the actor Danny Glover and the Princeton University scholar Cornel West that met the Venezuelan president for more than six hours late Saturday. Some in the group attended Chavez's television and radio broadcast Sunday.

"No matter what the greatest tyrant in the world, the greatest terrorist in the world, George W. Bush says, we're here to tell you: Not hundreds, not thousands, but millions of the American people ... support your revolution," Belafonte told Chavez during the broadcast...

The article says Belafonte suggested setting up a youth exchange for Venezuelans and Americans. I think we can guess what Belafonte wants American kids to learn. He finished by shouting in Spanish: "Viva la revolucion!"

He also works for the U.N., as spokesman for UNICEF. Isn't that nice? I'm sure most of Hollywood thinks so.
