They just got a different tool to use than we do: They kill innocent lives to achieve objectives. That's what they do. And they're good. They get on the TV screens and they get people to ask questions about, well, you know, this, that or the other. I mean, they're able to kind of say to people: Don't come and bother us, because we will kill you. Bush - Joint News Conference with Blair - 28 July '06

Greenspan: Would be awful to look like a Muslim

... the “war on terror” he [Alan Greenspan] admits has had unfortunate consequences. As a libertarian, he is troubled by the restrictions on civil liberties that followed the attacks. When I suggest that he must also disapprove of the detention centre at Guantanamo Bay, he replies: “Exactly.”

“This whole period is so unfortunate,” he says. “You can’t open up your society to all sorts of people coming in to destroy you without trying to do something . . . but if I were somebody who looked like a Muslim it would be awful.” Link
