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 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 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.

No one remembers it, because it didn't happen.


It would be nice if every once in a while, people would engage in just a cursory examination of the facts before they posted these unattributed, internet hoaxes.


Sometimes it's hard to separate fact from fiction, but the two here are so easy to debunk, it's ridiculous.


If you perform two Yahoo searches; "'mohammed atta israel", and "al gore ollie north osama bin laden", you will be directed to any number of sites that expose this bullshit for what it is, namely, bullshit.
