“I can hear you. The rest of the world hears you. And the people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon.”
– 9/14/01, on top of the rubble of the World Trade Center

“I want justice…There’s an old poster out West, as I recall, that said, ‘Wanted: Dead or Alive.'”
– 9/17/01

“I couldn’t imagine somebody like Osama bin Laden understanding the joy of Hanukkah.” —Dec. 10, 2001

“I don’t know where bin Laden is. I have no idea and really don’t care. It’s not that important. It’s not our priority.” – 3/13/02

“I am truly not that concerned about him.”
-(responding to a question about bin Laden’s whereabouts) 3/13/02

“I want to be the peace president.”

– 7/21/04

“Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we.”

“I just don’t think I ever said I’m not worried about Osama bin Laden. It’s kind of one of those exaggerations.”

Oh, right, how could i forget:
