Do You Remember 1987?

Thought  you might be interested 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 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! 


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.
