Hi all -
got this today and thought it was pretty interesting.
This is very interesting!! Also true to the last word.
Does Anyone remember this??
It was 1987! At a lecture the other day they were playing an old news video
of Lt.Col. Oliver North testifying at the Iran-Contra hearings during the
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

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

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
By the way, that senator was Al Gore
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
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 the World 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 reports.
