OK I'll admit it... I've got a bad memory and a low amount of patience for searching web sites, so someone please help me out here. Who said, "we have seen the enemy and it is us"? And is that the correct wording?

Thanks!!

"Resolve, then, that on this very ground, with
small flags waving and tinny blasts on tiny trumpets, we shall meet the enemy, and not only may he be ours, he may be us."
~Walt Kelly, in The Pogo Papers (1953).

Also:

"We have met the enemy and they are ours--two ships, two brigs, one schooner and a sloop.." ~Admiral Oliver Hazard Perry's message to General William Henry Harrison during the battle of Lake Erie in the war of 1812
