Has Harry Belafonte Lost His Mind?
Rev. Peterson Believes Belafonte's Meeting With Hugo Chavez Constitutes Treason.

Calypso singer and liberal activist Harry Belafonte led an American delegation including actor Danny Glover to meet with Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez this past Sunday. Belafonte joined Chavez on his radio and TV broadcast and railed against President Bush, calling him "the greatest terrorist in the world."
This latest act by Belafonte to associate himself with a clear enemy of the United States has caused BOND founder and President Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson to question Belafonte's sanity.
Rev. Peterson said: "Harry Belafonte's hatred of President Bush is causing him to embrace America's enemies. I also believe that his actions are treasonous as described by Article Three, Section Three of the U.S. Constitution which says that 'adhering to our enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort' constitutes Treason."
According to reports, Belafonte told Chavez during the broadcast, "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."
Rev. Peterson added: "Chavez is a brutal, paranoid dictator with nuclear ambitions who wants nothing more than to destroy the U.S. It's time we take our laws seriously and consider Harry Belafonte, Danny Glover, Professor Cornel West and other Americans who met with Chavez as domestic enemies of the United States."
In the past, Chavez has himself called President Bush a 'genocidal murderer' and a 'madman.' He's also accused President Bush of trying to overthrow him claims which the U.S. has strongly denied.
Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson is the author of the widely acclaimed book SCAM: How the Black Leadership Exploits Black America just released in paperback with a brand new Foreword by Sean Hannity.
