Oliver North speaks in Albany

October 9, 2005

Albany- Lt. Colonel now turned television talk show host, Oliver North makes a stop in Albany.

Lt. Colonel Oliver North brought his book tour to Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany Sunday night. North shared his experiences in Iraq and his testimonial about how he made it through his hearings by believing in God and having faith, but mostly talked about the brave men and women currently fighting to defend our country.

"I think we, those of us in the media, have an obligation to let these people show as good as they really are. The fact of the matter is things are to better in Iraq today than most of our colleagues are showing," said Lt. Col. Oliver North.

North signed copies of his latest book, "The Assassins" after his lecture. Proceeds from the book go to help pay schooling for students who lost a parent in combat.
