“It has been eight years, and the man who ordered the killing of Americans in Lower Manhattan and the Pentagon and in the plane that crashed in Pennsylvania is still in his lair. He has become a joke on late-night television—the murderer of Americans as a stock character, a punch line: Heard this one about Osama bin Laden? But I was near ground zero that day, and I wanted then, as I do now, revenge for what happened. That revenge would be my first thought surprised me even then. I am not that sort of person. And yet revenge also suggests a proper concern for the dead. The people who died on Sept. 11, 2001, cannot simply be dismissed, erased. The killers of Americans ought to pay for what they’ve done. Bring me the head of Osama bin Laden.”
