Do You Remember 1987?

This was one of those chain emails:

Oh well. This came from my uncle who probably didn't research it very well. Snopes says it's a rumor.

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 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.

Do
Not Break - it is 6 years strong

This
is why I always say I love YOU....


This has not been broken since 9/11/01, please
keep it going...
This has been kept alive and moving since 9/11. In memory of
all those who perished this morning; th e 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's just another testimony to how out of touch the dems are. And a scary reminder of more to come.
