Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Back in 1987.........

    This is part of the transcript 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

    "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

    "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.

    That senator was Al Gore


    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 the 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. :eek:

    Bl**dy Septics :mad:
  2. You may also find that Ossies possie are also mentioned in Ghost Force by Ken Connor.  Certainly mentioned in sunday times a few years ago, another Us sponsored black op.

    With allies like these.....cue:  "always look on the bright side of life"
  3. Although never short of cash, with any freezing of assets, I suppose that if they (as we are told today) are about to carry out attacks in UK, I'm sure the Lottery would be up for giving them a grant to kick start their campaign.
