John Kerry on Dec. 4 CBS News Face the Nation:
You’ve got to begin to transfer authority to the Iraqis. And there is no reason, Bob, that young American soldiers need to be going into the homes of Iraqis in the dead of night, terrorizing kids and children, you know, women, breaking sort of the customs of the historical customs, religious customs. Whether you like it or not Iraqis should be doing that.

Mayor Richard Daley, after 1968 crackdown on Chicago peace protests:
“Gentlemen, get the thing straight, once and for all: the policeman isn’t there to create disorder; the policeman is there to preserve disorder.”
