"THERE'S AN old poster out West, I recall, that said, 'Wanted: Dead or Alive.'"
"GEORGE BUSH is the president
Wherever he wants me to line up, just tell me where."
"IF I see someone come in, and he's got a diaper on his head and a fan belt around that diaper on his head, that guy needs to be pulled over and checked."
"THE PERPETRATOR and those who give them safe haven should be in our bomb sights. I say bomb the hell out of them. If there's collateral damage, so be it."
"WE ARE not going to be reading anybody their rights. No one is covered by Miranda. Any country, any city, any region and any person who makes common cause with those who make war against America is making war against America, and the wages of sin is death."
"WE NEED to be prepared to act as if we are at war. And that doesn't necessarily mean that you have to strike back only at those that you know were the perpetrators

They don't have capital cities with high-value assets that they're reluctant to lose. Some of the countries that are harboring terrorist networks do, in fact, have high-value targets."
"WE'VE GOT to stop talking as if this is a crime--this is war. We're going to have to begin killing people. It's not about bringing people to justice. It's about going after them and killing them."
