New Documents: FBI Worried Nelson Mandela Posed a Significant Communist Threat

The FBI closely monitored Nelson Mandela after the Cold War ended, fearing that the South American president was a national security risk, according to documents obtained by Al Jazeera.

The records show concerns among the U.S. that Mandela was a possible communist threat after he was released from prison, even as President George H. W. Bush cultivated a relationship with him and his African National Congress.

The FBI infiltrated Mandela’s meetings with a confidential informant and spied on his gatherings with world leaders, according to the records.

The heavily redacted documents were turned over to a historian, Ryan Shapiro, as part of a Freedom of Information Act request.
