Washington, Jul 2: Nelson Mandela is not a terrorist claims a US written document. Bush has finally signed a bill acceding to Mandela's visit without the secretary of state.

The new law removes from US immigration watch lists the names of the former South African leader and others on the list because of a relationship with the African National Congress, the Daily News reported. The ANC has been South Africa's ruling party since 1994, when a majority-ruled democracy replaced a White-ruled state where the vote was based on race.

During the Cold War, the West considered the ANC a communist organisation that wanted to bring down pro-Western South Africa. Mandela spent 27 years in prison for his work with the ANC.
