President George W. Bush September 20, 2001:
Great harm has been done to us. We have suffered great loss. And in our grief and anger we have found our mission and our moment. Freedom and fear are at war. The advance of human freedom -- the great achievement of our time, and the great hope of every time -- now depends on us. Our nation -- this generation -- will lift a dark threat of violence from our people and our future. We will rally the world to this cause by our efforts, by our courage. We will not tire, we will not falter, and we will not fail.We did not tire. We did not falter and we did not fail.

This is a great testament to the American military and to our intelligence operations. We have proven once again that we are a great nation.
Congratulations to President Obama for his focus on killing Obama. While I take exception to the one line in his speech where he stated "no matter what god you pray to," we are Americans and we will celebrate our victory as a nation, a God loving nation. It was the only line that prevented it from being a perfect speech.
The God I pray to gave us His only begotten Son. Without that, we would never have the moral fortitude to have the respect for life and the outrage at the disregard for life that al Queda and Osama bin Laden has demonstrated in their ongoing war against us.
This is not a a war against Islam. It is a war against cold blooded killers. I agree with President Obama on that. Does Islam think the same?
God bless America. It's a great night. We got him!
