PEARL HARBOR:
FDR KNEW

Churchill wrote in his Nobel Prize winning series on WWII that FDR knew about the Japanese plans to attack Pearl Harbor. The following is from pages 602-603 of THE GRAND ALLIANCE, c1950.

Churchill makes these points about his good friend and colleague FDR, accusing him of treason while knowing that the facts would eventually come out:

1. Hawaii's commanders did not get proper warning.
2. Churchill was not going to judge what FDR did at Pearl Harbor.
3. FDR and he were very afraid that the US could not come into the war unless Japan attacked the U.S.
4. Pearl Harbor was worth the price.
5. FDR "knew the full and immediate purpose" of the Japanese at Pearl Harbor.
6. FDR welcomed the attack.
7. And this amazing statement: "Nor must we allow the account in detail of diplomatic interchanges to portray Japan as an injured innocent..." That is an admission, granted forced by the facts, that Japan WAS the injured innocent, maneuvered into firing the first shot, as Secretary of War Stimson put it. Cabinet Minister Sir Oliver Lyttelton, expressed the same point on June 20, 1944, to the American Chamber of Commerce: "Japan was provoked into attacking the Americans at Pearl Harbor. It is a travesty on history ever to say that America was forced into the war. Everyone knows where American sympathies were. It is incorrect to say that America was ever truly neutral even before America came into the war on a fighting basis."

@joefromchicago,
That's not how things work, Joe. First you answer my question. Then we can get to yours.

@JTT,
So you won't answer his question till he answers yours, and you haven't asked him one yet!
That seems a little odd, don't you think?

@JTT,
So I have to answer a question you never asked before you answer the question that I actually asked?

Tell you what: while formulating your question to me, why don't you answer my question to you?

@JTT,
I think Joe has been more than patient with you, JTT.

Why not just answer his question?

It's not me, Mame, who is willing to cast aside millions of people terribly brutalized just to climb the social ladder. Are under the lunch table favors part of your repetoire?

An absolute hoot, Frank, coming from a guy who avoids addressing anything in an honest fashion. A guy who still maintains a signature line that screams, "Frank Apisa is the world's leading hypocrite".

I respond to all questions directed at me...and I attempt to always respond honestly. If you have any questions outstanding...just ask 'em again, and I will respond.
