Anyone remember this?? (i was 2 young 2 care)<br><br><br><br>
It was 1987!_ At a lecture the other day they were playing an old news<br><br>
video of Lt.Col. Oliver North testifying at the Iran-Contra hearings<br><br>
during the Reagan Administration.<br><br><br><br>
There was Ollie in front of God and country getting the third degree,<br><br>
but what he said was stunning!<br><br><br><br>
He was being drilled by a senator; "Did you not recently spend close to<br><br>
$60,000 for a home security system?"<br><br><br><br>
Ollie replied, "Yes, I did, Sir."<br><br><br><br>
The senator continued, trying to get a laugh out of the audience, "Isn't<br><br>
that just a little excessive?"<br><br><br><br>
"No, sir," continued Ollie.<br><br><br><br>
"No? And why not?" the senator asked.<br><br><br><br>
"Because the lives of my family and I were threatened, sir."<br><br><br><br>
"Threatened? By whom?" the senator questioned.<br><br><br><br>
"By a terrorist, sir" Ollie answered.<br><br><br><br>
"Terrorist? What terrorist could possibly scare you that much?"<br><br><br><br>
"His name is Osama bin Laden, sir" Ollie replied.<br><br><br><br>
At this point the senator tried to repeat the name, but couldn't<br><br>
pronounce it, which most people back then probably couldn't. A couple of<br><br>
people laughed at the attempt. Then the senator continued. Why are you<br><br>
so afraid of this man?" the senator asked.<br><br><br><br>
"Because, sir, he is the most evil person alive that I know of", Ollie<br><br>
answered.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
"And what do you recommend we do about him?" asked the senator.<br><br><br><br>
"Well, sir, if it was up to me, I would recommend that an assassin team<br><br>
be formed to eliminate him and his men from the face of the earth."<br><br><br><br>
The senator disagreed with this approach, and that was all that was<br><br>
shown of the clip.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
By the way, that senator was Al Gore<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
Also:<br><br><br><br>
Terrorist pilot Mohammad Atta blew up a bus in Israel in 1986. The<br><br>
Israelis captured, tried and imprisoned him. As part of the Oslo<br><br>
agreement with the Palestinians in 1993, Israel had to agree to release<br><br>
so-called "political prisoners."<br><br><br><br>
However, the Israelis would not release any with blood on their hands,<br><br>
The American President at the time, Bill Clinton, and his Secretary of<br><br>
State, Warren Christopher, "insisted" that all prisoners be released.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
Thus Mohammad Atta was freed and eventually thanked the US by flying an<br><br>
airplane into Tower One of the World Trade Center.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
This was reported by many of the American TV<br><br><br><br>
networks at the time that the terrorists were first identified. It was<br><br>
censored in the US from all later reports.

The American's are to blame for too many problems fuzzpuddle. After all they were the ones who put the Taliban into power.
