The presumption in that question is that…he was going to McDonald's for milkshakes every Friday night and we could have just picked him up in a taxicab. These people deliberately try to evade capture, and putting yourself in a position where you can properly ID and move against them takes a lot of planning. I don't think anybody's going to apologize for the effort over such a long period of time that eventually led to his capture.

In any conflict area, it is always the women who are the first point of attack. But I think the more they have seen of oppression and violence, they have gotten more brave, more strong, more fearless than they were. You see this refusal to just keep quiet and do as you are told.

We are human beings, and this is the part of our human nature, that we don’t learn the importance of anything until it’s snatched from our hands.

We are human beings, and this is the part of our human nature, that we don’t learn the importance of anything until it’s snatched from our hands. And when, in Pakistan, when we were stopped from going to school, at that time I realized that education is very important. And education is the power for women. And that’s why the terrorists are afraid of education. They do not want women to get education, because then women would become more powerful.

You know, my father was a great encouragement for me, because he spoke out for women’s rights, he spoke out for girls’ education. And at that time I said that ‘Why should I wait for someone else? Why should I be looking to the government? To the army, that they would help us? Why don’t I raise I my voice? Why don’t we speak out for our rights?’”

And, as a consequence of the pressure that we've applied over the last couple of weeks, we have Syria -- for the first time -- acknowledging that it has chemical weapons, agreeing to join the convention that prohibits the use of chemical weapons, and the Russians -- their primary sponsors -- saying that they will push Syria to get all of their chemical weapons out. The distance that we've traveled over these couple of weeks is remarkable.

Opposition is different from terrorism. Opposition is a political movement. Opposition doesn't mean to take-- armament and kill people and destroy everything. Do you call the people in Los Angeles in the '90s, do you call them rebels or opposition? What would the British call the rebels less than two years ago in London? Do-- did they call them opposition or rebels? Why should we call them opposition? They are rebels. They are not rebels even, they are terror-- they are behaving-- this opposition, opposing country or government by behaving by barbecuing head, by eating the hearts of your victim? Is that opposition?
