I don't see how the Rumsfeld quote could offend anyone. True, Rumsfeld
is a politician (and not a particularly popular one in most parts of the
world), but the quote itself is not political. It is a somewhat
comically worded expression of an important truism that many people
would do well to remember (cf. the classical "there are no unknown bugs
in our software"). Would you have suggested moving it to -o if it had
been a Steve Martin quote?
The Fass quote is more borderline. I guess shys^H^H^H^Hinvestment
bankers might take offense.

Like you say, "of", and not "to" which is what was committed.
