Quotations of the day

By The Associated Press

"It looks like it's over for the Brotherhood. Brotherhood families are grieving over their dead or busy trying to see how they can visit loved ones in detention or others who are injured." - Sameh Eid, a former Brotherhood member who has maintained contact with the Egyptian group, commenting after the arrest of the Brotherhoods's supreme leader Mohammed Badie.


"Instead of accountability, the State Department offered a charade that included false reports of firings and resignations and now ends in a game of musical chairs where no one misses a single day on the State Department payroll." - House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa in a statement after four State Department officials were cleared of security failures that led to an attack last year on a diplomatic outpost in Benghazi, Libya, that killed U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens.


"This bastard stood right in front of me! I wanted to ask him, `What did I do? What have I done to you?'... And he shot me!" - Afghan farmer Haji Mohammad Naim speaking through an interpreter during a sentence hearing for Staff Sgt. Robert Bales in the slayings of 16 civilians killed during pre-dawn raids on two villages in Afghanistan on March 11, 2012.
