    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 Reagan
    Administration.

    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 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.

    Thanks momo. Remember Algore vs. North. Don't recall Atta's prior bomb attack in Israel. Not surprised by Clinton's insistence for the release of a known murdering terrorist. More blood on 'that mans' hands.

    Sorry but this is not true. It is an inaccurate reporting of the senate hearings which has been debunked by North himself. The terrorist in question was Abu Nidal. I'll see if I can find you a link.


    P.S. OK, here's the snopes article on this hoax and the true story.

    Thanks for the correction MT. Apologize for mixing up Nidal with Ben Ladin. Both viscous Muslim terrorists. Appreciate the snopes link. I do recall hearing Algore denigrating Lt.Col. North on this subject.

    You're very welcome. Yep, a man like the ex sen ozone would denigrate a man like North with so many years of honorable service to his country.
