Quotations of the day

“Al-Qaida has suffered losses and it is trying to make an impression. The mere talk about an upcoming attack gives the group a chance to restore its shattered image … as a group capable of exporting terrorism.” — Ali al-Sarari, an analyst in Yemen.


“The only person who didn’t feel I was BSing them was my mother.” — Paul White, 45, a frequent lottery player who claimed his third of a $448 million Powerball jackpot in Minnesota.


“I see bodies. I see bodies everywhere. And I see blood. No one is moving. There was no movement. There was no sound. So I yelled out, ‘Is everybody OK? … I started hearing, ‘Help me. I’m bleeding. I’ve been shot. Help me.’” — Sgt. 1st Class Maria Guerra testifying against Maj. Nidal Hasan, accused of killing 13 people at Fort Hood, Texas, in 2009.
