The FDR infamy speech is one of the most famous speeches ever given.
The Roosevelt infamy speech involved the attack of Pearl Harbor. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt stated, “Yesterday, December 7, 1941 - a date which will live in infamy - the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan".
He ended his speech by saying, “I ask that the Congress declare that since the unprovoked and dastardly attack by Japan on Sunday, December seventh, a state of war has existed between the United States and the Japanese Empire.”
This day will be forever remembered for the American lives that were lost as a result of the Japanese attack.
It will be remembered as a somber day in American history much like September 11, 2001 will.
On September 11, 2001, the World Trade Center twin towers were attacked and over three thousands Americans lost their lives. This was seen as the most infamous day in American history in which thousands of American innocent lives were lost.
Unlike the attack of Pearl Harbor, the September 11th attack was a terrorist attack and the terrorists on that day will live in infamy as a result.
