How Bush and his junta succeeded in deflecting America's anger from Bin Laden to Saddam Hussein is one of the great public relations conjuring tricks in history.
I'd never seen anything like that ad. Putting pictures of Saddam Hussein and Osama bin laden next to the picture of a man who left three limbs on the battlefield -- it's worse than disgraceful. It's reprehensible.saxby chambliss
After the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and other terrorist incidents, "The United States government, then President Clinton, did not respond. Bin laden declared war on us. We didn't hear it.rudy giuliani
With trembling hand that from Thy table fall,A weary, heavy laden sinner comes,To plead Thy promise and obey Thy call.edward bickersteth
Call no faith false which e'er hath broughtRelief to any laden life,Cessation to the pain of thought,Refreshment mid the dust of strife.lewis morris
Blessed are they who, in the calm moments of retirement, of worship, of prayer, of silent waiting, have found that to "the weary and heavy laden " Christ can indeed give rest; that compared with the heavy bondage of the world or the exactions of human systems, His yoke indeed is easy, and His burden is light.arthur penrhyn stanley
Money-crimes have an abstract quality. History is laden with the victims of gold, but their remains are odourless.Georges Bernanos
The old adage that polite conversation should not include talk of politics or religion is understandable because both subjects are so heavily laden with emotion that discussion can quickly turn to shouting. Blood is shed over politics, religion and the two in combination.john danforth
Silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts.
Welcome, dear Goldenrod, once more, Thou mimic, flowering elm! I always think that Summer's store Hangs from thy laden stem.Horace scudder
I have read in Plato and Cicero sayings that are very wise and very beautiful; but I never read in either of them, "Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden."
In Afghan society , parents play a central role in the lives of their children ; the parent-child relationship is fundamental to who you are and what you become and how you perceive yourself, and it is laden with contradictions, with tension , with anger , with love , with loathing , with angst .
It makes no more sense to launch an assault on our civil liberties as the best way to get at terrorists than it did to launch an invasion on Iraq as the best way to get at Osama Bin laden.
Now the pitch, and it's lined foul into the seats, down the third base line, 1 ball, 1 strike, and I'll tell you what's going on. The crowd is chanting "U-S-A!" and the reason for that is that there are reports circulating, I'm not sure if they yet been confirmed by the White House, that Osama bin laden is dead. How that's happened, we don't know, but this crowd now knows it.howie rose
Show me one European or American president who has not traveled to Libya or has not signed an agreement (with Gaddafi ), some people said they killed this gentleman to make sure he would not be able to say anything, just like what they did to bin laden. Any decision that would strengthen the presence, domination or influence of foreigners would be contrary to the Libyan nation's interests. The expectation of the world of the Libyan nation is that they stand and run the country themselves.mahmoud ahmadinejad
I saw thee in a vision of the night Transfigured; for it seemed that on thy brows The heavens did rest with all their stars, like boughs laden with blossoms; round thy feet the bright Green waves, like grass, ran rippling, strewn with white Star-fragments of rent petals: wasted vows, And ruined prayers I thought them, such as house In hearts that love and are not loved aright.john evelyn barlas

I just don't think I ever said I'm not worried about Osama bin laden. It's kind of one of those exaggerations.george w. bush
Be afraid of the Chinese. I mean, the Chinese shoot down satellites in space; they hack into Google's computers; the Osama bin laden people can't make their underwear blow up.francis fukuyama
[ Osama bin laden is] either alive and well or alive and not too well or not alive.Donald Rumsfeld
I saw thee in a vision of the night Transfigured; for it seemed that on thy brows The heavens did rest with all their stars, like boughs laden with blossoms; round thy feet the bright Green waves, like grass, ran rippling, strewn with white Star-fragments of rent petals: wasted vows, And ruined prayers I thought them, such as house In hearts that love and are not loved aright.
Each tree laden with fairest fruit, that hung to th' eye Tempting, stirr'd in me sudden appetite To pluck and eat.john milton
Good evening.:;Tonight, I can report to the American people and to the world that the United States has conducted an operation that killed Osama bin laden, the leader of al Qaeda, and a terrorist who’s responsible for the murder of thousands of innocent men, women, and children.
Al-Qaeda was embedded in Afghan society, it was given safe haven by Mullah Omar and the Taliban leadership. And they were given a chance to turn over al-Qaeda and Bin laden before we attacked them, and they refused.
