Asif Ali Zardari Believes Ollie Knew, Snopes Disagrees

You've gotten them a million times before. Random tidbits posted in a Myspace bulletin about a dying orphan in Zimbabwe, and if one million people repost this, Tom will give the boy a kidney.

There's also a little tidbit that's been floating around the net since just after 9/11:

LEST WE FORGET--
  Subject: A little history...


  You know, it's funny. I remember very vividly
  the Oliver North hearings, but did not recall the
  name of Osama bin Laden as the terrorist that
  North was threatened by. Has this slimeball been
  around that long?. It's pretty evident, in hindsight
  that we should have listened to OLLIE!
 

I was at a UNC lecture the other day where they
  played a video of Oliver North during the Iran-Contra
  deals during the Reagan administration.
  I was naive back then but
  was surprised by this particular clip.
 

There was Olie in front of God and Country
  getting the third degree.

  But what he said stunned me. He was being
  drilled by some senator I didn't recognize who
  asked him;

  'Did you not recently spend close to $60,000
  for a home security system?'

  Oliver 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 Oliver.
 

'No. And why not?'

  'Because the life of my family and I were threatened.'

  'Threatened? By who.'

  'By a terrorist, sir.'

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

  'His name is Osama bin Laden.'

  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?'

  'Because sir, he is the most evil person alive
  that I know of.'

  'And what do you recommend we do about him?'

  'If it were me I would recommend 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 they showed of the clip.

  It's scary when you think 15 years ago the
  government was aware of Osama bin Laden
  and his potential threat to the security of the world.
  I guess like all great tyrants they start small but if
  left untended spread like the virus they truly are.

Snopes.com (and several other hoax-busting sites for that matter) confirmed this as a complete fabrication soon after it hit the Internet. The security system was $16,000, and the perceived threat was terrorists in general. At the time, Bin Laden was a U.S. backed freedom fighter against Russia. The terrorist North complained of was Abu Nidal.

This, however, didn't stop Pakistan President Zardari from claiming that the debunked version happened, on FOX News no less.
