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 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.

If you agree that the American public should be made aware of this fact, pass this on.

Nothing like the truth---the same kind of people who start these things say they caught a fish thiiiiiiiiis looooooooooong and so forth-the truth is powerful enough to make the point-why give the liberals ammo when they say we exaggerate things.....I've read this other places and seen it debunked--never this clearly, though. Thanks, 2400, for your effort---and thanks, rMan, for reminding us that there are those on the firing line-in the danger zone-for our safety-and there are those who should listen to them-and don't. I forget the source, but someone said we enjoy peace and safety because there are "rough" men standing in the gap---ready to do violence-on our behalf.We should support them and heed their warnings.

The trouble with the American people is they are asleep when it comes to protecting themselfs. They think because we have the best Army in the world, that nobody can get us. Wrong! Their coming in the back door and nobody seems to care. People here are going to have to pay a heck of price for that someday. We may loose if this is not brought under control.

Thanks 2400 and SheepDog. I don't usually spread misinformation. Why do people have to make this crap up! Every administration that I can remember had it's share of dastardly deeds - just reporting the truth would be good enough. Glad to find out there is a place to check these stories out.

Right you are-I'd like to fast forward in time to when they release the secret things from the last 10 years-we don't get much of the truth.
