Cassius Clay The Traitor

Reader comment on item: Muhammad Ali v. George W. Bush

Submitted by Jim Keating (United States), Nov 29, 2005 at 18:24

I couldn't agree more with your article about Cassius Clay receiving the Presidential Medal of Freedom. When I originally heard that W was to award this medal to him, I was outraged. Clay was and is a fraud, a phoney, and most of all an enemy of this country. This is as obscene as him being chosen to light the Olympic flame when the Games were in the US. I am a supporter of our President, but I cannot forgive this bad decision.
