Back in the 1980's, when living in the Los Angeles area, I had occasion to meet some of the then-exiled members of the African National Congress who were here in the USA, working to line up American support for the establishment of a legitimate government in their home country of South Africa. I learned a lot from those guys, as they were very smart.
