Remember 1987?

I had forgotten all of this.  Do you remember when the senators were giving Ollie North such a bad time?  This brings it all into perspective doesn’t it?

ATT000101 2

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 were 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 . Many of the American TV networks reported this at the time that the terrorists were first identified.

It was censored in the US from all later reports.

ATT000225 1

This has been kept alive and moving since 9/11. In memory of all those who perished that morning; the passengers and the pilots on the  United Air and AA flights, the workers in the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, and all the innocent  bystanders. Our prayers go out to the friends and families of the deceased.

      It could be an urban legend… 🙂
      or just one of those things that is broadcast once then discarded.
      (Snopes & Factcheck are politically skewed so can’t judge by their comments.)

    I remembered that even today. No one seems to remember that it was Gore that was asking him the question. You should keep this one, it will come in handy later in life.

      There’ve been so many news reports that made a one time show, then evaporated. Most of this is a vague memory. And I cannot say for sure if it’s factual. (But then, I can’t say that’s what’s left of lots of news if factual, especially on the front pages of the major ones 😦 )
