Beyond the Veil| Liberia’s popular, Harvard-educated president Ellen Johnson Sirleaf says that she hasn’t ruled out running for another term. A pending action related to a summer truth and reconciliation commission report on violence-ravaged Liberia could limit that decision.
Sirleaf acknowledged before the commission in February that she gave up to $10,000 to a rebel group headed by Charles Taylor, viewed by many as the chief architect of Liberia’s back-to-back civil wars.
But she said the money she sent while an expatriate was meant for humanitarian services and that she was never a member of his group. via Associated Press
