What do Naomi Campbell and Pat Robertson have in common? Both lust for Liberian butcher Charles Taylor’s diamonds.
Robertson’s relationship with Taylor was the subject of my first post, from Aug. 2005.
“We’re undermining a Christian, Baptist president to bring in Muslim rebels to take over the country,” he said on his 700 Club show about good pal Taylor, the deposed Liberian president. “And how dare the president of the United States say to the duly elected president of another country, ‘You’ve got to step down.’” (Yet Robertson supported the removal of Saddam Hussein). …
Washington Post religion reporter Alan Cooperman revealed in an article two years ago that Robertson — who blamed the Liberian bloodbath on State Department opposition to Taylor — had an $8 million agreement with the Baptist president to mine gold in his country. Operation Freedom Gold, he called it. Freedom for what, Robertson’s debt?
Stay tuned for more pointless reminiscing throughout the month.
