Why is the attack on Pearl Harbor called the day of infamy?

The term "day of infamy" was used in President Roosevelt's speech the day after the attack when he addressed the nation and declared war on Japan. This term became associated with the Pearl Harbor attack. There is at least one book written about Pearl Harbor that takes this term as the title of the book. Why FDR used that term can only be answered by him. Bascially, he was saying that No American will ever forget the day the Japanese attacked the USA and we won't let the Japanese forget it either.
