.......................in this forgotten bit of information
..........It was 1987! At a lecture the other day they
were playing an old news video of Lt.Col. Oliver
Northtestifying at the Iran-Contra hearings during
There was Ollie in front of God and country getting
the third degree, but what he said was stunning!He
was being drilled by a senator; "Did you not
recently spend close to $60,000 for a home security
system?" Ollie replied, "Yes, I did, Sir." The senator
continued, trying to get a laugh out of the audience,
"Isn't that just a little excessive?" "No, sir," continued
Ollie. "No? And why not?" the senator asked."Because
the lives of my family and I were threatened,sir."
"Threatened? By whom?" the senator questioned."By
a terrorist, sir" Ollie answered."Terrorist? What
terrorist could possibly scare you that much?" "His
name is Osama bin Laden, sir" Ollie replied. At this
point the senator tried to repeat the name, but
couldn't pronounce it, which most people back
then probably couldn't. A couple of people laughed
at the attempt.
Then the senator continued. Why are you so afraid
of this man?" the senator asked. "Because, sir, he is
the most evil person alive that I know of", Ollie
answered. "And what do you recommend we do
about him?" asked the senator. "Well, sir, if it was
up to me, I would recommend that an assassin
team be formed to eliminate him and his men from
the face of the earth."
The senator disagreed with this approach, and that
was all that was shown of the clip.
By the way, that senator was Al Gore!
Also: Terrorist pilot Mohammad Atta blew up a bus
in Israel in 1986.The Israelis captured, tried and
imprisoned him. As part of the Oslo agreement
with the Palestinians in 1993, Israel had to agree to
release so-called "political prisoners." However, the
Israelis would not release any with blood on their hands.
The American President at the time, Bill Clinton,and
his Secretary of State, Warren Christopher,"insisted"
that all prisoners be released. Thus Mohammad Atta
was freed and eventually thanked the US by flying an
airplane into Tower One of theWorld Trade Center.
This was reported by many of the American TV
networks at the time that the terrorists were first
identified. It was censored in the US from all later
If you agree that the American public should be
made aware of this fact, pass this on.
