Glenn talks with Oliver North




American Heroes: In the Fight Against Radical Islam


by Oliver North

GLENN: Let me go to Oliver North who happens to be on the phone with us. I'll try to speak slowly to you.

LT. COLONEL NORTH: Why is that, Glenn?

GLENN: Well, I mean, you know, you apparently can't read, I guess.

LT. COLONEL NORTH: Well, apparently because I was in the armed force of the United States, quoting to Stephen King where just as part of this -- sounds remarkably like what John Kerry said.

GLENN: Isn't that amazing?

LT. COLONEL NORTH: When he was running for President. It's almost like they write this, they had the same script writer.

GLENN: Well, you know what it is? It must be so frustrating to you because we were talking about this earlier. I have yet to meet, and I'm sure there are, but I have yet to meet the idiot that is in our armed forces. I have never met a single soldier, sailor, airman, nobody that I thought, oh, jeez, I can't believe this guy has a gun.

LT. COLONEL NORTH: You know, Glenn, and you and I have both traveled around this country. We've met a lot of people and I'm now out on my book tour and you've been on yours, same guy set them both up. We'll I'm sure see a lot of the same people. The reality of it is that today's military -- and I'm very proud of the guys that I served with as a young marine in Vietnam, the guys that kept me alive for, you know, the whole time that I was over there in two trips to Vietnam. But today's military, soldiers, sailors, airmen, guardsmen and Marines, are the brightest, best educated, now best trained and equipped military of any country at any time in history. Average education in today's enlisted ranks is 13 1/2 years. I was in Columbus, Ohio and Middleton, Ohio earlier this week and I met two U.S. army recruiters. One is a sergeant first class, the other one is a sergeant, both veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan, both now on recruiting duty. And they jokingly say it's tougher being on recruiting duty and they will tell you, they said, we want you to meet some of the 14 guys that we have shipped this month. Now, that's recruiting vernacular for the guys who signed up and are about to go on active duty. 14 graduates, 14 graduates of high school minimum, 10 of whom they said are graduates of two-year institutions. In other words, they have an associate degree in a community college. And I said, well, what about the other four? And the sergeant first class smiled and says, they were all graduates of Ohio State. In other words, college graduates who were headed off to become enlisted soldiers because they want to serve their country. Idiots like King who probably wouldn't know a military guy if they tripped over him or guys like Jim McDermott who made a similar comment last week out there in Washington's very liberal Seattle or guys like John Kerry or people like the New York Times who write they are nothing but poor kids from Mississippi, Texas and Alabama, Lord knows why they picked those three states, don't get it. And the reason they done get it, Glenn, is because they haven't spent any time with them. They don't know who they are.

GLENN: Lieutenant Colonel Oliver North. His book is released today. It's "American Heroes: In the Fight Against Radical Islam." You know, I listen to these people and it really is like there is two Americas. There is the America that I grew up in and, you know, you grew up in and that one had the change in the 1960s where all of a sudden our heroes became baby killers and everything else. They promised that we wouldn't do it again. They are not calling anybody a baby killer. Now they're just calling them stupid.

LT. COLONEL NORTH: Yeah. Well, and of course we've had politicians accuse them of premeditated murder. McDermott said the other day out in California that they were mercenaries. We've seen the commanding officer derided as General Betrayus. An unprecedented act, by the way. Even during what we in Virginia called the war of recent northern regression, there were union generals who were pilloried but never like this. You think about the attack on these young men, and I can only conclude that it is people like all of these ones that we've just referred to who don't want us to win a war that is eminently winnable against radical column, that you will I want to conclude, who want to demoralize the troops, denigrate the commanding officer, who say the commanding officer is something beneath them and that's what they basically set out to do, to try to guarantee in one fashion or another that this war is not the victory we need it to be.

GLENN: So how does the country -- and I know you talk about this in the book. How does the country win against one of its -- one of the most dedicated enemies we've ever faced?

LT. COLONEL NORTH: You are absolutely right about that.

GLENN: How do we win a war when the media is against the soldiers, the liberal elite is against the soldiers, much of congress and politicians are against the soldiers. I mean, they will say that, oh, no, we love the soldiers but then they are really not.

LT. COLONEL NORTH: I tell people, I say -- and I had this debate with Alan Colmes last night on Hannity and Colmes. When you've got somebody that says, I support the troops; I just don't support their mission. I say, try this. When you go home tonight, tell your spouse that you really love her and then in the next breath tell her, "But I don't like the way you keep the house, I don't like the way you're raising the kids, I don't particularly like the way you make love," and find out where you sleep. The fact is you can't say "I support the troops" and don't support the reason we have troops. The reason we have troops is to defend this country, in this case against one of the most vicious adversaries we have ever faced. It's one thing to take on an enemy that's willing to die for their comrades or their cause. It is something else to take on an enemy that intends to die in the process of killing you.

GLENN: Are you frustrated at all --

LT. COLONEL NORTH: Oh, I'm terribly frustrated.

GLENN: Are you frustrated all that people don't -- for instance, Hollywood, I mean, Lone Survivor is now being made into a movie, but Hollywood just won't go there, and there are amazing stories about our troops.

LT. COLONEL NORTH: Yeah. Black Hawk Down was a very successful movie, but ultimately when you get -- when you peel the onion back on Black Hawk Down -- and they couldn't help but show the remarkable heroism from the spec ops guys and the Rangers in what happened in 1993 in Somalia. But ultimately the reason why that movie got funded -- probably didn't turn out quite the way they originally intended but it shows how heroic those guys were but the reason why they made it was because it was a defeat. And Saving Private Ryan is a wonderful movie but in fact it's fictitious. You know what, you don't have to be fictitious. If you read the -- every one of the pictures in this book, American Heroes, none of them are staged. All of them are the real thing. The stories are their stories. I just happened to be there with a camera. I'm the guy that gets to hang around with heroes for a living.

GLENN: I tell you what, Oliver North, if you don't mind hanging on for just a second.

LT. COLONEL NORTH: I'll do so Glenn.

GLENN: Because I've got to ask you something that you're getting hammered for in the media here on Jeremiah Wright. The name of the book is "American Heroes." It's out today. Lieutenant Colonel Oliver North.

GLENN: Indiana and North Carolina going to the voting polls today. We'll see what happens. We'll be watching it tonight with you, 7:00, CNN Headline Prime, don't miss it. Oliver North from the Fox News Channel and author of "American Heroes: In the Fight Against Radical Islam." The national release is today. He is out on the road and he's with us now. Lieutenant Colonel, tell me about the statement that you made about Jeremiah Wright. I know people are hammering for saying that Jeremiah Wright is a recruiting campaign for Al-Qaeda and all the enemies of America.

LT. COLONEL NORTH: Well, he is. By virtue of what he has been saying -- and this all began here a week or so ago, not just going after me by name for Lord knows what reason but what he has become is an incitement for people to say I'm disgusted with America, I hate America. And as he said, he damned America. What this man is doing is creating an environment where already disaffected young people -- and there are a lot of them, particularly in prisons -- and many of them are minorities, are falling into the hands of people like Louis Farrakhan who can then turn them over to radical Imams and further their process of indoctrination into radical Islam. Now, Al-Qaeda just happens to be one manifestation of it. We've certainly seen in Iraq where it doesn't have to be Al-Qaeda. It could be a Shiite militia, it could be theocrats in Tehran that are directing the special groups that are operating all over the southern part of Iraq trying to deny the Iraqis the opportunity to develop their oil resources. Those are the kinds of things. You've got an American as promise then as Jeremiah Wright who, by the way, did serve as a United States marine but has apparently forgotten the motto of the United States Marine Corps: Semper Fidelis, always faithful.

GLENN: I want to play a clip from Rosie O'Donnell because she said she understood Reverend Wright. I want to get your opinion on this. Listen to this, Rosie O'Donnell yesterday.

O'DONNELL: Well, did you see Bill Moyers recently give a speech about what happened after Reverend Wright was on his show?

VOICE: No.

O'DONNELL: He got thousands of e-mails, over like 5,000 e-mails and some of them irate, some of them understanding but what it came to boil down to in his mind is the fact that, you know, this man is Following a tradition of black preachers and that there is a righteous indignation about people who are only considered 3/4 of a person until fairly recently in history and that his anger which annoys some and forces some to look at issues that America is not really ready to face is the actual issue, that racism does exist in this country and it's still thriving and that some of the things that Jeremiah Wright says he's held accountable for and -- not Oprah, Obama's held accountable for but there are things that white preachers have said that are just as insane.

VOICE: All them should be held accountable.

O'DONNELL: That Pat Robertson is saying, that gays and feminists are responsible.

VOICE: So you agree they should all be held accountable.

O'DONNELL: I think there is a place in the world, an inspirational, liberational kind of preaching that Reverend Wright says. When you read that he says, I was not as offended in the people in the polls read. Frankly it made sense to me. I totally understood what he was saying.

GLENN: What do you think of that?

LT. COLONEL NORTH: Well, you know, obviously Rosie O'Donnell, Bill Ayers, Jeremiah Wright, Barack Obama, you know, if you believe what they say, the United States government started the HIV virus, the United States government's responsible for 9/11. I mean, there's a grand conspiracy theory that pervades the left in this country and unfortunately they've achieved remarkable prominence that they don't deserve. And what it does is it distracts us from people like the American heroes that are in this book. And what's so disappointing to me is the ones who really deserve the attention and the accolades rarely get it from our media.

GLENN: How difficult -- because I -- you know, the conspiracy theory is growing in this country that the United States military pulled off the 9/11 attack.

LT. COLONEL NORTH: Yeah.

GLENN: And I find it so awful and also so ridiculous that think that our government could keep that a secret.

LT. COLONEL NORTH: Well, of course. I mean, this is a government that can't keep -- you know, once two people know about it, it's sure to leak. I mean, it would have been published -- the guys that were involved in the conspiracy would have stepped forward to the Washington compost or the New York crimes or the Atlantic journal and constipation and it would be all over the press. I frequently tell people the enemy doesn't need an intelligence service against us. All they have to do is subscribe to America's newspapers, watch the mainstream media. We have to go out and collect information against guys who have learned, thanks to them, by the way, thanks to the media, that we were listening to their cell phone and satellite telephone communications. We have to go out and try to penetrate cells of terrorists who have been inculcated since they were little children in hatred, how to kill and how to die and try to do that under strictures that were so difficult that you couldn't even talk until very recently, this administration changed the rules for the CIA so you could actually talk to somebody who might have a criminal record. Think about the mind of somebody that says our government could somehow make the passengers on those four airplanes disappear or somehow invectored those airplanes into two great buildings in New York City and the Pentagon's west wall and a farmer's field in Somerset county, Pennsylvania.

GLENN: Ronald Reagan called him an American hero, he is a New York Times best selling author, syndicated columnist, he does war stories on the Fox News Channel. More importantly, a Vietnam veteran awarded the silver star, the bronze star and two purple hearts during his 22 years of service with the U.S. Marine Corps. Lieutenant Colonel Oliver North has a book out now. It's called "American Heroes: In the Fight Against Radical Islam." It is a real pleasure, sir.

LT. COLONEL NORTH: Glenn, I appreciate it.

GLENN: You bet.

LT. COLONEL NORTH: And for all your listeners around the country who want to learn more about the book tour, go to Americanheroesbook.com. It's all there and I appreciate the chance for you to tell their story.

GLENN: Talk to you again, Oliver.

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."

The Daily Beast recently reported on a group of 50-plus leading progressive organizations that calls itself the Fight Back Table or FBT, who are planning for a "post-Election Day political apocalypse scenario."

The FBT held a meeting on Zoom to launch an initiative they dubbed the "Democracy Defense Nerve Center." Meeting participants prepared for expected threats to a fair election in November, such as "armed right-wing militia dudes show[ing] up in polling places," or poll locations that "mysteriously close" on Election Day. They also predicted that President Donald Trump would claim victory regardless of November's election results, which would lead to inevitable "mass public unrest."

"It is very obvious that Trump is laying the groundwork for claiming victory no matter what ... we will fight to protect [our democracy] from what we truly see as a president who has gone off the rails and taking this country down an authoritarian fascist path," said MoveOn Executive Director Rahna Epting.

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn argued that the left is using large-scale mail-in voting — which unlike absentee ballots does not require voters to submit an application ahead of the election — to set the stage for chaos, revolution, and ultimately cause civil war to destroy our nation.

"No one will believe the [election] outcome because they're changing the way we're electing a president this time. And people don't understand the difference ... this is Democratic states just printing ballots and mass mailing them," Glenn said.

"They've been war-gaming this forever," he continued. "And the media is trying to make it look as if the right is the one that is violent. We're not planning anything to happen on Election Day, except to go and vote. The chaos that's coming, I think is remarkable. And if the DOJ doesn't get involved and find out who these groups are and what they have planned, you are going to have intimidation and chaos the week of the voting, and for weeks [afterward] until we go into civil war. This is not hyperbole. This is what the left is now saying."

Netflix film 'Cuties' is darker than you thought

'Cuties'/Netflix

Plague. Recession. Riots. Looting. Fires. Murder Hornets. And now, as we round the third base toward the home stretch, 2020 gives us Cuties, a delightful French coming-of-age film by Maïmouna Doucouré that's half Stand by Me and half Coyote Ugly – if you were to combine both films into an anthropomorphic entity and then forcefully dip its toe into the perilous waters of pedophilia.

Cuties begins by showing us an 11-year-old Senegalese girl named Amy, whose fundamentalist Muslim family has recently moved to France. We learn that Amy's father has gone back to Senegal to bring home the woman who is to become his second wife. The mother's struggle is very clear to Amy, who begins right then and there to develop a hatred for her father. She starts looking for ways to rebel, and soon lands in the company of a group of ne'er-do-well girls, who fancy themselves dancers and have adopted the group name "Cuties". Their primary goal in life at the moment – and the thing that drives the film's narrative – is to participate in and win the big dance competition coming up soon. The ring-leader – a dark-haired bespectacled girl who resembles Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to such an eerie extent that it can't have been on accident – lives in Amy's building, and the two form a kind of delicate friendship throughout the film.

Here is where the movie most resembles a female version of Stand by Me, and it's also where I began to understand that this is a remarkably beautiful film at times. It's well-shot, well-scored, and well-acted. In fact, Fathia Youssouf Abdillahi (the actress who portrays Amy) is quite possibly the most talented child actor I've ever seen.

I began to understand that this is a remarkably beautiful film at times.

The portrayal of this group of girls wending their way through the thick tangles of childhood and constantly grasping at what they perceive to be higher concepts of adulthood is somehow both charming and bothersome at the same time. Knowing virtually nothing of the real world of sexuality, they engage in a kind of whimsical speculation as to how sex works that almost comically mirrors the aforementioned Oscar-winning film (and a ton of other coming-of-age movies as well). Some of this is fine. There's a particularly funny-turns-emotional moment when one of the girls, upon finding a used condom lying around in the woods, blows it up like a balloon and begins playing around with it. The other girls – who at least know enough to know that one doesn't touch such things for fear of disease – immediately recoil from her, tell her that she's going to catch AIDS, and so embarrass and frighten her that she begins to cry. The scene is, again, beautifully shot, and I found myself sympathizing with the character as she feels an overwhelming moment of ostracization-through-misadventure. In the following scene, we are treated to a montage of the girls washing her mouth out with soap, and it breaks the tension.

All of that to say that not only does this movie have plenty of redeemable moments that are on the beat film-wise, but also that it will pull you in headlong whether you want it to or not – which is what a good film is supposed to do.

But, alas, there's more. And I'm not so much talking about the risqué dancing that's done throughout the film. Here's why: as if the plot structure of every coming-of-age story didn't lay it out clearly enough for us, kids strive to be adults. The results are often hilarious, sometimes disturbing, but it's their nature. Kids want to be more like adults. And in a world – such as the one depicted in this movie – where children either can't or won't seize on the example of adulthood provided by their own parents, a vacuum is created. And nothing fills the vacuum of responsible parenting better than social media.

For the girls, it is the well from which they draw their inspiration, acceptance and love. "Likes" are the currency of the realm, and if you don't think this is true in your own kids' world today, you need to wake up and smell the Zuckerberg.

Thus, it is no surprise that these young dancing girls are modeling their very existence after what they see in online videos, and regurgitating the same back at the soulless machine. That they would be twerking and gyrating in a manner that falsely suggests they do know a thing or two about sex is normal when you consider that they're dining daily on visual and musical junk food – art perhaps not entirely without merit, but certainly without taste. And if there's one thing about the movie that phone-it-in parents might do well to see, it is perhaps the juxtaposition of budding childhood and the laissez faire morality adhered to by the demigods of popular culture. In short: these girls are just trying to be like the only set of role models afforded to them.

Here's what should (in my opinion, anyway) not be okay, though.

Aside from the moments of dancing, this film is filled with the cinematography of sexuality. When you watch any film in which there is a femme fatale character (or in some cases several of them), the way in which they are shot by the camera is extremely suggestive of overt sexuality. To quote one of my favorite online film critics: "You may not have noticed, but your brain did." Tracking shots over women's bodies, particularly up their backside or across a heaving bosom all decorated in cleavage, are a stock in trade for many filmmakers (and the only one for some of them). It's so common in the making of movies that it's often lampooned as a trope.

I'm reticent to accuse the woman who made this film of directly catering to the desires of pedophiles – but... I can't completely dismiss the idea, either.

We'll save the discussion about whether or not this is offensive when actresses in their twenties and thirties do it for another time. What I would hope we could all agree on is that you don't – in good conscience – use those same tracking shots over the bodies of a group of 11-year-old girls, even to make a point. And you certainly don't do it over and over and over throughout the course of a movie. The unstated purpose of such shots in a regular film is to give the viewer a taste of the voyeur. You wouldn't be allowed, in polite society, to walk up to a woman and stare at her from inches away, scanning down her body as if you were about to fax her someplace. But with the movie camera, you get a little taste of that. Dopamine rushes to your brain, and you're instantly glad you shelled out the twenty bucks to see the movie.

And while it's theoretically possible that the unstated purpose on behalf of the filmmaker changes when the subject is a little girl, it can't be denied or even overlooked that, for a certain subset of the viewing population, the effect does not. I'm reticent to accuse the woman who made this film of directly catering to the desires of pedophiles – but after having sat through an hour and a half of shot after shot of this very overt technique, I can't completely dismiss the idea, either.

As Amy progresses down the path that her (barely) world-wise friends have chosen, she becomes far more steeped in it, because she has no sense of the unseen boundaries which exist even in a hedonistic postmodern society such as present-day France. She spirals out of control very quickly, trying to outdo her friends in overt displays of sexuality and even violent aggressiveness. If there is a redeeming quality to the message of the movie, it is that we are fairly explicitly told through what we see her go through that this is not the best life for her. That escaping from the oppressive Muslim traditions of her family is a thing she should seek, but that this is not the way to go about it. All throughout her journey, we are subjected to close-up images of her body (and the bodies of the other girls). At one point, Amy's mother and aunt seem to be performing a kind of exorcism on her to drive out the evil rebellious spirits they believe have taken over, and Amy vibrates in the middle of the room on her knees in a paroxysm of movement which is half-dance, half-apparent-demonic possession, and all sex. I don't mean to be graphic here, but she may as well have been doing a full-on sex scene, for all the heavy breathing and gyration and rank passion that's going on. As an adult – and particularly as a parent – it made me literally feel ill to watch.

It's a beautiful final scene... but it fails to pull the film from the mire into which it's dipped.

And, if you believe the film's director, that's what you're supposed to feel. She claims that the whole intent of the movie is to get people to feel uncomfortable as they realize the hyper-sexualized nature of children in our modern world, and how it's driven by the nanny state that is social media in our modern era. Part of me wants to applaud the effort – it certainly worked on me. I walked away from my television with a feeling of nausea and a renewal of the commitment in my head toward doing anything and everything I can to make sure that my own children never watch this film. The fact that the movie ends with Amy making a choice to reclaim her childhood – that she walks away both from the more oppressive elements of her Muslim upbringing (insofar as she will be able – we are never told) and from trying to become an adult too soon (insofar as she will be able – we are also never told) and embraces just being an 11-year-old girl – that fact doesn't change what's transpired. It's a beautiful final scene – it really is – but it fails to pull the film from the mire into which it's dipped.

In summary, I can't really put any sort of seal of approval on this film, despite part of me wanting to. I generally subscribe to the idea that showing us a thing is far better than telling us a thing – but there are limits, and I think Cuties crosses them. As much as I want to believe that the director's motives are pure as the driven snow, it's not lost upon me that – as I mentioned before – one of the main characters (with whom we are meant to be sympathetic multiple times throughout the film) is very obviously meant to be the prototypical girl-who-wants-to-be-AOC. This film is at war with its own supposed message – it seeks to convey the horrors of oversexualized youth while laying out on for open display an entire smorgasbord of pedophilic fantasies. The game simply isn't worth the candle.

Osama bin Laden's niece, Noor bin Ladin (Noor's family has always spelled their name differently than her uncle) wrote an open letter to America, praising our country as "a beacon of democracy and hope for all subjugated peoples" across the world, and warning: "America, you are at the very edge of the precipice. Please wake up! Take hold! Fight for your country, and be proud of your roots! Uphold your values. Stand for your flag and your anthem. Defend your history. Don't relent in the face of those who seek to re-write it to serve their narrative and justify the destruction of your nation. You have much to cherish and protect for your sake, and ours."

Noor never stood with or supported her uncle. In fact, she grew up with an American flag proudly displayed in her childhood bedroom. Now a resident of Switzerland, she describes the chaos and destruction she's seen spread across America over the last several months.

"Watching the gratuitous violence, streets burn, buildings and statues being defaced in America over these past months, I am heartbroken to see how an entire generation was successfully brainwashed into hating the very nation that has yielded the most freedom, justice and equality anywhere in the world.

"I am also highly distressed by the blatant erosion at various levels of your most basic individual rights and freedoms as guaranteed by your Bill of Rights, from arbitrary censorship of speech to unlawful, politically motivated abuses of justice," she wrote.

Noor warned America that if we don't stand up, defend our history, and cherish the principles which make our country great, than those who have sought to undermine our country for decades will divide and destroy us from within.

"The truth is that the undoing of America has been decades in the making. The globalists, Deep State, swamp, whichever name you call them, have been hard at work to weaken America's sovereignty and standing as world leader. Intent on erecting a new system of world governance where they would be in total control, they are seeking to undermine the fundamental principle of your country, "a government for the people by the people", replacing it instead with a world order of international institutions ultimately puppeteered by a caste of technocrats, oligarchs and international bankers.

"Though your Constitution stands firmly in their way, it never deterred them. Like a trojan horse, they infiltrated governmental and intelligence agencies, and all realms of society - education, media, entertainment, culture. At their disposal, tools of mass population influence: propaganda, fake news and censorship. By pushing their marxist-socialist progressive agenda for years, they set out to destroy your fundamental values and divide you. They negated God, dissolved the family unit and dissevered us from moral objectivity, effectively leaving a vacuum of degeneracy, cognitive dissonance and absurdity in its wake," she added.

Read the full letter here.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared several highlights from Noor's letter as well as her first-ever interview with the New York Post.

"A letter was written to America this week. I want you to listen to the words," said Glenn. "'America, you are at the very edge of the precipice. Please wake up! Take hold! Fight for your country, and be proud of your roots! Uphold your values. Stand for your flag and your anthem. Defend your history. Don't relent in the face of those who seek to re-write it to serve their narrative and justify the destruction of your nation. You have much to cherish and protect for your sake, and ours.' [...] The woman who wrote that, the woman who is an American at heart, who is warning us, is Osama bin Laden's [niece]."
