Lt. Col. Oliver North - 1987. We should have listened.

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 Sir, I did".

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 Muslim terrorist sir". Ollie answer.

"Terrorist? What terrorist could possibly scare you that much?"

"His name is Abu Nidal, "the principal, foremost assassin in the world today."

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 the Muslims are trying to take over America and destroy it from the inside out and putting their people into our political offices.

"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."
