    snopes.com: Oliver North Warns About Osama Bin Laden

    Stupid website won't let me cut the text.

    I vaguely knew of this but lacked all the details. I'm not a big fan of North, since he did engage in illegal activities in government, but he's still an American hero under the tarnish. Combat decorated in Vietnam.

    Basically, Libyan terrorist team was on the way to his house when they were caught by the FBI. A judge let them out on bail and they haven't been seen since.

    Can you imagine being his neighbor and them having the wrong address?

    Several people had warned about Osama bin Laden, well before the first bomb put in the World Trade Center in 1990 as well as the Sudan in 1993. I was aware and paying attention to Osama in the late 80's, as things about him came out. My father and I had lots of debates about it and that in the future he was going to be a serious problem if he wasn't stopped. We were both right.

    Oliver North came out at one point about the dangers of Osama bin Laden, but it was after lots in the CIA, etc. were already giving strong warnings about him. There was an argument that he should be taken out, in the 1993 Sudan incident..... as he was the one "advising" the tribal chief in power there on how to make it bloody enough, etc ... because the American public could not handle it and would make the USA pull it's military out. They did, and the military was pulled out. He was right.

    Where Osama was wrong, was how America would react to 9/11 and that Geo Bush was the President.

    I think you meant to say "Somalia."
