Something I'll bet you did not remember...

I had a friend forward this to me the other day and I just had to put it up on the blog. This is something we all should know and remember:

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 Senator Al Gore,  '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 Muslim 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 the Muslims are trying to take over America and destroy it from the inside out and putting their people into our political offices.

'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.


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 then censored in the US  from all later reports. 

Live Long and Prosper...
