Cat Stevens

My own view of this, by the way, is, if the war on terrorism is successful over time, in its own way it’s going to box Saddam in in a way that’s going to make it much more difficult for him to maintain his power, and that he’s going to become increasingly isolated. I think that’s going to take time.
Lawrence Eagleburger

I believe that sooner or later we’re going to have to deal with Saddam Hussein, because of his general reputation, because of what I’m convinced he’s done with regard to terrorism and the support thereof. But I’m not at all sure I believe that it has to be right now.
Lawrence Eagleburger

War on terrorism defines the central preoccupation of the United States in the world today, and it does reflect in my view a rather narrow and extremist vision of foreign policy of the world’s first superpower, of a great democracy, with genuinely idealistic traditions.
Zbigniew Brzezinski

Palestinian terrorism has to be rejected and condemned, yes. But it should not be translated defacto into a policy of support for a really increasingly brutal repression, colonial settlements and a new wall.

Jurgen Habermas

The clever, albeit fragile, coalition against terrorism brought together by the U.S. government might be able to advance the transition from classical international law to a cosmopolitan order.

Anna Lindh

We must pass a national energy policy to continue our successes in the War on Terrorism.

Paul Cellucci

Let me be very clear: We monitor the risks of violent extremism taking root here in the United States. We don’t have the luxury of focusing our efforts on one group; we must protect the country from terrorism whether foreign or homegrown, and regardless of the ideology that motivates its violence.
