    What did Ollie know?

    Don't know if this is true, but if it is, it sure is interesting.

    Anyone remember this?? It was 1987!
    At a lecture the other day they played 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 some 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. (If anyone is interested, the senator was none other than Al
    Gore.)

    BTW: How much did you spend on your security system?
