NaNa Takes the Stand



Random Kwestins: 1.As much of a farce as the ICC is and also fully overstanding why Charles Taylor is standing trial, why did Nana's agent, Carol White grass her out? Mia Farrow...okay we know she's got activist street cred - failed hunger strikes n all to prove it, but Carol White, really??? Thought she was meant to be a mother figure to Nana, but she ratted her out and then sold/gave her story to the Daily Mail, of all papers. Lol.
2. How can Nana be a patron of several African charities and not know where Liberia is or be clueless about the war??? Santa puhleaaaze put an atlas and a newspaper subscription in her XMas stocking! Our girl can't be embarassing herself like that.
3. Which designer was she wearing? Good Look.
4. Was it a big, (presumably) clean diamond (Mia Farrow) or roughly six 'dirty stones' (Nana Campell)?
5. If you got 'dirty stones' in a pouch in the middle of the night wouldn't it occur to you that they were precious 'dirty stones', at best or 'dirty juju stones', at the worst?
6. Where is/are the diamond/s today?
7. Dontcha love this line? : "I gave the stones to Jeremy. Immediately, I got on the train I looked for him ... I said take them, do something good with them, make the children better, I don't want to keep them." (Nana Campbell). Awww, some poor li'l children need some 'dirty stones' to make it all better, do they? Lol.
8. How many people will still have an interest in the trial after today?
9. How important is Nana's testimony anyway? Taylor's on trial for 11 counts of war crimes, how does a couple of 'dirty stones' allegedly given to a celebrity come to dominate the trial? What about the other testimonies of Liberian army personnel who gave details of what they did under Taylor's orders? 
10. Say Nana recieved the 'dirty stones', does this bring the ICC prosecution any closer to proving prove a direct, causal connection between Taylor and the violence so he can be prosecuted? Considering that she's not said the stones were from Taylor.
11.During trial preparation did the ICC at any point think to call on Charles Mitterand and Jacques Chirac to testify about the support they provided to Taylor in the 1990s, surely past Presidents have some celebrity status worthy of the ICC witness box. ; )
12. Finally, when are Tony Blair and George Bush standing trial for war crimes, times awastin'.

I know you like Naomi, but she is such a stupid woman and she displayed her ignorance to the whole world. How could she not know these were diamonds? And how could she have felt 'inconvenienced', how 'inconvenienced' do Sierra Leoneans feel having to wait so long for justice to be done?
I agree with the questions.

You eat too much salt in your diet.
Breath deep and relax man, Nana can't hear you.
