Subject: A Useful historical lesson
A terrorist pilot, named Atta blew up a bus in Israel
in 1986. The Israelis soon captured, tried and imprisoned him. As part
of the Oslo agreement Israel had to agree to release so called
"political prisoners". However, the Israelis would not release
any prisoners with "blood on their hands". So a well meaning
American President and his Secretary of State insisted that they all be
released. Thus Mr. Atta was freed and eventually thanked us-the USA-by
flying an AMERICAN airplane into tower one of the world trade center.
This was reported by many of the networks at the time
the terrorists were first identified, but it was missing (deleted) from
later reports. This "kindly" president was Ronald Reagan and
George Schultz was the Secretary of State.
Partisan poltics aside, the importance of this lesson,
differentiating between "political prisoners,"--activists for
another cause, and "terrorist"--those with the blood of the
innocents on their hands, SHOULD NOT BE FORGOTTEN. We have paid dearly
in learning this lesson and hopefully we will not repeat the mistake.
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 Mr. 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.
The American public must be made aware of this fact.
