Not since 9/11 have I experienced anything even kind of close to this

“It’s one of the greatest experiences of, certainly my lifetime and it’s been wonderful… I haven’t seen this sense of unity since 9/11, really, really, and 9/11 was this tragic experience that brought us all together and now we’re all brought together in the name of hope. Not since 9/11 have I experienced anything even kind of close to this.”

- Oprah Winfrey , November 4, 2008

The ‘trick of the bad terrorist’ out to ‘get us’

- Rosie O'Donnell , May 17, 2007

America sponsors Terrorism

America is worse than Terrorists

“How many more years and how many more dead kids? It’s just, you know, it’s way over the amount of people killed on September 11th. We’ve killed more Americans than any terrorist ever did in this war…We were not attacked by either of the nations we invaded. Nineteen [sic] Saudis were on those planes, and we invaded Afghanistan and Iraq.”

- Rosie O'Donnell , May 1, 2007.

America is like Al-Qaeda

“I think President George W. Bush, I think Cheney, I think Rumsfeld, I think all of these people have lost any moral integrity. I find what we are doing is hugely immoral…Al-Qaeda tortures. We torture. Al-Qaeda’s killed innocent people. We kill innocent people…We have no business doing what we do.”

- Harry Belafonte , January 23, 2007.

So what do you suggest, Andy?

“Americans are puzzled over why so many people in the world hate us…We’re trying to protect ourselves with more weapons. We have to do it, I guess, but it might be better if we figured out how to behave as a nation in a way that wouldn’t make so many people in the world want to kill us.”

- Andy Rooney , September 10, 2006.

The U.S. is overreacting to 9/11

“Was 9/11 really that bad?”

- David Bell , January 28, 2007.

Global warming is more worrisome than terrorism.

“I am more worried about the risks of global warming in the next century than I am about arms races in this century.”

- Hans Blix , May 6, 2005.

We don’t use the word “terrorist.”

“We all know that one man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter and that Reuters upholds the principle that we do not use the word ‘terrorist’. . . . To be frank, it adds little to call the attack on the World Trade Center a terrorist attack.”

- Stephen Jukes
