I'll Fly Away

Bill Clinton: "Pre-emptive action today may come back with unwelcome consequences in the future because, I don't care— and I have done this, I have ordered this kind of action — I don't care how precise your bombs and weapons are, when you set them off, innocent people die." [The implication being, apparently, that if military action is not "pre-emptive", then innocent people will not die?]

Charles Lindbergh: "We came here to escape Europe's ceaseless wars. Why should we now go back in?" [Linked site includes interesting photograph of Lindbergh walking with Col. Norman Schwarzkopf, head of New Jersey State Police, and father of Persian Gulf Commander 'Stormin Norman' Schwarzkopf. Schwarzkopf headed the investigation into the Lindbergh baby kidnapping.]
