I'd like to launch the thread with a classic one-liner from Imperial Britain:

"For us with our powerful fleet ... if we are engaged in war, we shall suffer little more than we shall suffer if we stand aside"

- British Foreign Secretary, Sir Edward Grey Speech to the House of Commons, August 3rd 1914

We are very encouraged that the results from our monitoring of air quality and drinking water conditions in both New York and near the Pentagon show that the public in these areas is not being exposed to excessive levels of asbestos or other harmful substances.

Given the scope of the tragedy from last week, I am glad to reassure the people of New York and Washington, D.C. that their air is safe to breath and their water is safe to drink

- Christie Whitman, US EPA Administrator, September 18th 2001

See 9/11 Sucks 12 Years From Bravest Lungs on firehouse.com for something rather more factual.
