Obama shakes Raul Castro’s hand, at a memorial service for Nelson Mandela (former president of South Africa and leader of Umkhonto we Sizwe, the violent and terroristic armed wing of the African National Congress):
What did you expect? He has shaken Chavez’s hand and says he wants to visit Tehran.
Your captions below.
P.S. Some have asked: what did Mandela do that was any different from what George Washington did. Charles C. Johnson:

Some controversy has surrounded Mrs Mandela in recent years. A former social worker and considered a great beauty in her youth, she has shown enormous courage over the years in the face of imprisonment, house arrest and harassment by the South African authorities. More recently, however, she has shown questionable political judgment. In 1986 she embarrassed the anti-apartheid community with the statement in a speech that “we shall liberate this country” with “our boxes of matches and our necklaces” interpreted as an implicit endorsement of the political killings by burning which did enormous damage to the anti-apartheid movement between 1984 and 1987.
But enough about killing innocent people. On with the captions!
