“Even as we mark this milestone [Sunday’s assassination of al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden], we should not forget that the battle to stop al-Qaeda and its syndicate of terror will not end with the death of bin Laden.
“Indeed, we must take this opportunity to renew our resolve and redouble our efforts. In Afghanistan, we will continue taking the fight to al-Qaeda and their Taliban allies while working to support the Afghan people as they build a stronger government and begin to take responsibility for their own security.” — U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton
“I think it’s a horrible statement in every way. The notion of tying the Taliban to al-Qaeda has been disproved over and over again; they are separate forces. The Taliban … it’s a civil war that we’re engaged in.
“If you could impeach Secretary Clinton for that statement, I think we should impeach her. It’s unconscionable, after what has gone on, the loss of lives and the loss of money, and for her to continue to try to escalate this misguided war.”
