because I believe he has knowledge and experiences that are unique and an insight that is useful.
I find his books an excellent read and an excellent insight into what he had to go through, I recommend that any of you should pick one of them up
I'm pretty sure the US is against having another nation have the same sort of verification systems on its weapons programs that it wishes to place on other nations. If they've got nothing to hide, I believe they should do it and set a moral example to other nations.

Jesus Christ, enough of the character assassination please, its getting old and pointless.
Do people disregard what good ol' Nelson Mandela says because he's a convicted terrorist that spent most of his life in prison?
Do people disregard Abe Lincoln because he's on the record as saying that if allowing slavery would unite the nation he'd consider it?
Do people disregard Reagan because of the Iran Contra farce?
Hell, an admitted Hitler Youth and WW2 German Soldier was just elected Pope, should we disregard him?
What Gorbachev is saying about America is completely spot on.
