Watch these in order

I talked at length to Lloyd Rollins, Administrative Officer, American Embassy, Ottawa, Canada, one of the hostages released early from the American Embassy, Tehran. Mr. Rollins was the person who argued for the release of Richard I. Queen and is credited for securing his release. Part of what Mr. Rollins could not write in his book is contained in the following videos. Further down is the explanation by Lt. Col. Oliver North of a hoax perpetrated on him:

Algiers Accords haunt Iranian nuke situation

The Norman Transcript

Editor, The Transcript:

Why would Secretary of State Rice and President Bush dance around the Iran nuclear threat?
On "Meet the Press," Aug. 8, 2004, Rice said Iran would not be allowed to develop an atomic energy program.
While in Germany, Feb. 4, 2005, Rice said Iran's atomic program was not on the radar screen at that time.
Rice said Feb. 10, 2005, there was no time table for Iran to curtail their efforts to generate atomic material.
March 13, 2005, again on "Meet the Press," Rice said President Bush can settle the Iran problem diplomatically.
In a story from the AP dated May 1, 2005, in Tehran, Iran: "Iran said it is likely to resume uranium enrichment within a week."
President Bush said 6 p.m. June 22, 2005, on ABC he would not negotiate with Iran.
But why would the Bush administration seem to back off? Perhaps someone reminded Rice and Bush of the Algiers Accords.

Page one, point one of the Accords, dated Jan. 20, 1981, says, "The United States pledges that it is, and from now on will be, the policy of the United States not to intervene directly or indirectly politically or militarily in Iranian Internal affairs." It was signed by George H.W. Bush. Monday, June 14, 2004, the high court of last resort sounded the death knell on the Iranian hostages (United States citizens) and $33 billion in damages were levied against Iran. The court said the Algiers Accords prevented recovery for damages. The present Bush administration agreed with the decision. Why?

For months before the United States and Iran agreed on the Algiers Accords Nov. 2, 1980, three citizens of the United States were observed in France and Spain dealing with the Iranian government officials. Two of them were Ronald Reagan's campaign manager, Bill Casey, and vice president candidate George H.W. Bush. The Reagan administration later admitted former Secretary Henry Kissinger met with Iranian officials Nov. 12, 1980, but the de-classified copy of the Accords does not name the individual. They are referred to as U.S. participants representing the U.S. government.

The allegations, if true as according to Newsweek, would constitute an accusation of treason against G.H.W. Bush, Casey, Kissinger and others. Full review of the 14-page Algiers Accords leaves little doubt Bush Sr. and Casey were there. Had the U.S. high court allowed the $33 billion judgment to stand, the signatories to the Accords would become known and likely would embarrass George W. Bush.

The former hostages were freed during President Reagan's inauguration ceremony Jan. 20, 1981. President Carter's inability to rescue the hostages was a big issue in his 1980 reelection loss to Reagan.



ABCNews- September 11th Rumors: Fact or Fiction
Oliver North Responds to the E-mail Chain Letter

FROM THE DESK OF LTCOL OLIVER L. NORTH (USMC) RET.
NOVEMBER 28, 2001

OVER THE COURSE OF THE LAST SEVERAL WEEKS, I HAVE RECEIVED SEVERAL THOUSAND E-MAILS FROM EVERY STATE IN THE U.S. AND 13 FOREIGN COUNTRIES IN WHICH THE ORIGINATOR PURPORTS TO HAVE RECENTLY VIEWED A VIDEOTAPE OF MY SWORN TESTIMONY BEFORE A CONGRESSIONAL COMMITTEE IN 1987.
A COPY OF ONE OF THOSE E-MAILS IS ATTACHED BELOW. AS YOU WILL NOTE, THE ORIGINATOR ATTRIBUTES TO ME CERTAIN STATEMENTS REGARDING USAMA BIN LADEN AND OTHER MATTERS THAT ARE SIMPLY INACCURATE. THOUGH I WOULD LIKE TO CLAIM THE GIFT OF PROPHESY, I
DON'T HAVE IT.
I DON'T KNOW WHO SAW WHAT VIDEO "AT UNC." (OR ANYWHERE ELSE) BUT, FOR THE RECORD, HERE'S WHAT I DO KNOW:
1. IT WAS THE COMMITTEE COUNSEL, JOHN NIELDS, NOT A SENATOR WHO WAS DOING THE QUESTIONING.
2. THE SECURITY SYSTEM, INSTALLED AT MY HOME, JUST BEFORE I MADE A VERY SECRET TRIP TO TEHRAN, COST, ACCORDING TO THE COMMITTEE, $16K, NOT $60K.
3. THE TERRORIST WHO THREATENED TO KILL ME IN 1986, JUST BEFORE THAT SECRET TRIP TO TEHRAN, WAS NOT USAMA BIN LADEN, IT WAS ABU NIDAL (WHO WORKS FOR THE LIBYANS -- NOT THE TALIBAN AND NOT IN AFGHANISTAN).
4. I NEVER SAID I WAS AFRAID OF ANYBODY. I DID SAY THAT I WOULD BE GLAD TO MEET ABU NIDAL ON EQUAL TERMS ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD BUT THAT I WAS UNWILLING TO HAVE HIM OR HIS OPERATIVES MEET MY WIFE AND CHILDREN ON HIS TERMS.
5. I DID SAY THAT THE TERRORISTS INTERCEPTED BY THE FBI ON THE WAY TO MY HOUSE IN FEB. 87 TO KILL MY WIFE, CHILDREN AND ME WERE LIBYANS, DISPATCHED FROM THE PEOPLE'S COMMITTEE FOR LIBYAN STUDENTS IN MCLEAN, VIRGINIA.
6. AND I DID SAY THAT THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT HAD MOVED MY FAMILY OUT OF OUR HOME TO A MILITARY BASE (CAMP LEJEUNE, NC) UNTIL THEY COULD DISPATCH MORE THAN 30 AGENTS TO PROTECT MY FAMILY FROM THOSE TERRORISTS (BECAUSE A LIBERAL FEDERAL JUDGE HAD ALLOWED THE LYBIAN ASSASSINS TO POST BOND AND THEY FLED).
7. AND, FYI: THOSE FEDERAL AGENTS REMAINED AT OUR HOME UNTIL I RETIRED FROM THE MARINES AND WAS NO LONGER A "GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL." BY THEN, THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT HAD SPENT MORE THAN $2M PROTECTING THE NORTH FAMILY. THE TERRORISTS SENT TO KILL US WERE NEVER RE-APPREHENDED.
SEMPER FIDELIS, OLIVER L. NORTH


Here is the new variation as of February, 2002:
IT WAS 1987 DO YOU REMEMBER?
Here's a little tidbit of history: something some of you may remember if you were not too young at the time.
IT WAS 1987.
At a lecture the other day they played an old 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 this 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.
If anyone is interested, the Senator turned out to be none other than------Al Gore
