"December 7th, 1941, a date which will.."

"Some fine Sunday morning..." Colonel Billy Mitchell (1924)

“I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve.”
Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto (12/7/41)

“With confidence in our armed forces - with the unbounded determination of our people - we will gain the inevitable triumph - so help us God.” (12/8/41)

"Why, of course, the people don't want war... But it is always a simple matter to drag the people along... That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country."
- Herman Goering

The Attack on Pearl Harbor, 1941, The US Administration of FDR sought to involve America in World War II. But the American people wanted to stay out of it. So the Administration provoked Japan, in the hope that they would attack the U.S. The plan worked, and FDR made sure that the attacks took place successfully and had the maximum effect and impact. Believing that it was a surprise and unprovoked attack by the Japanese at Pearl Harbor, Americans now supported U.S. entry into the war.

Problem-Reaction-Solution: False Flag Attacks

False-flag attacks are an example of the political technique known as Problem-Reaction-Solution.
The most popular type of false-flag attack is where a government actually carries out an attack, such as a terrorist attack, against it's own people, then blames it on a foreign or domestic enemy. The public demands the government take action against the apparent perpetrator, and the government willingly obliges by starting a war against their chosen enemy and/or instituting domestic police state measures.

Sometimes, a government need not carry out the attack itself. It can provoke and then facilitate an attack carried out by a real enemy, so that it can then justify a declaration of war on the basis that "the enemy fired the first shot".

There are even instances where there was no attack at all. These are known as fabricated attacks.

The truth is concealed from the public, and only emerges years or decades later.

Well it's been 69 years now and no new "truth" has emerged.

Nine years and counting for 9/11, and no new truth there either.

Just the reaffirming of an old truth: Never let your guard down.

The Myth of Pearl Harbour

Pearl Harbour on Sunday morning, December 7, 1941, the Japanese launched a sneak attack at Pearl Harbor that decimated the US Pacific Fleet and forced the United States to enter WWII. That's what most of us were taught as school children... But, except for the date, everything you just read is a myth. In reality, there was no sneak attack. The Pacific Fleet was far from destroyed. And, furthermore, the United States took great pains to bring about the assault.

On January 27, 1941, Joseph C. Grew, the U.S. ambassador to Japan, wired Washington that he'd learned of the surprise attack Japan was preparing for Pearl Harbour. On September 24, a dispatch from Japanese naval intelligence to Japan's consul general in Honolulu was deciphered. The transmission was a request for a grid of exact locations of ships in Pearl Harbour. Surprisingly, Washington chose not to share this information with the officers at Pearl Harbour. Then, on November 26, the main body of the Japanese strike force (consisting of six aircraft carriers, two battleships, three cruisers, nine destroyers, eight tankers, 23 fleet submarines, and five midget submarines) departed Japan for Hawaii.

Despite the myth that the strike force maintained strict radio silence, US Naval intelligence intercepted and translated many dispatches. And, there was no shortage of dispatches: Tokyo sent over 1000 transmissions to the attack fleet before it reached Hawaii. Some of these dispatches, in particular this message from Admiral Yamamoto, left no doubt that Pearl Harbour was the target of a Japanese attack: "The task force, keeping its movement strictly secret and maintaining close guard against submarines and aircraft, shall advance into Hawaiian waters, and upon the very opening of hostilities shall attack the main force of the United States fleet and deal it a mortal blow. The first air raid is planned for the dawn of x-day. Exact date to be given by later order."

Even on the night before the attack, US intelligence decoded a message pointing to Sunday morning as a deadline for some kind of Japanese action. The message was delivered to the Washington high command more than four hours before the attack on Pearl Harbour. The main targets of the Japanese attack fleet were the Pacific Fleet's aircraft carriers, but Roosevelt made sure these were safe from the attack: in November, at about the same time as the Japanese attack fleet left Japan, Roosevelt sent the Lexington and Enterprise out to sea. Meanwhile, the Saratoga was in San Diego.

Roosevelt wanted a piece of the war pie. Having failed to bait Hitler by giving $50.1 billion in war supplies to Britain, the Soviet Union, France and China as part of the Lend Lease program, Roosevelt switched focus to Japan. Because Japan had signed a mutual defence pact with Germany and Italy, Roosevelt knew war with Japan was a legitimate back door to joining the war in Europe. On October 7, 1940, one of Roosevelt's military advisors, Lieutenant Commander Arthur McCollum, wrote a memo detailing an 8-step plan that would provoke Japan into attacking the United States. Over the next year, Roosevelt implemented all eight of the recommended actions. In the summer of 1941, the US joined England in an oil embargo against Japan. Japan needed oil for its war with China, and that required getting rid of the US Pacific Fleet first.

Although Roosevelt may have got more than he bargained for, he clearly let the attack on Pearl Harbour happen, and even helped Japan by making sure their attack was a surprise. He did this by withholding information from Pearl Harbour's commanders and even by ensuring the attack force wasn't accidentally discovered by commercial shipping traffic.

Franklin D. Roosevelt was appointed Assistant Secretary of the Navy by Woodrow Wilson in 1913.

He was a tireless champion who unabashedly loved the navy. Pearl Harbor simply does not fit his Modus operandi.

And neither does pinning 9/11 on President Bush.

oh, i didn't realize you knew fdr so well.

you choose to ignore the truth, which is fine.... but not for a reporter....makes me wonder how much you publish about amherst is true. you obviously have a truth filter superior to millions of americans who have actually LOOKED at the facts...and not the popular mechanics (boy scout) version



- 911Truth.org urges 2006 reform candidates to recognize a powerful new constituency.

(Utica, NY) - Although the Bush administration continues to exploit September 11 to justify domestic spying, unprecedented spending and a permanent state of war, a new Zogby poll reveals that less than half of the American public trusts the official 9/11 story or believes the attacks were adequately investigated.

The poll is the first scientific survey of Americans' belief in a 9/11 cover up or the need to investigate possible US government complicity, and was commissioned to inform deliberations at the June 2-4 "9/11: Revealing the Truth, Reclaiming Our Future" conference in Chicago. Poll results indicate 42% believe there has indeed been a cover up (with 10% unsure) and 45% think "Congress or an International Tribunal should re-investigate the attacks, including whether any US government officials consciously allowed or helped facilitate their success" (with 8% unsure). The poll of American residents was conducted from Friday, May 12 through Tuesday, May 16, 2006. Overall results have a margin of sampling error of +/- 2.9. All inquiries about questions, responses and demographics should be directed to Zogby International.

According to Janice Matthews, executive director of 911truth.org, "To those who have followed the mounting evidence for US government involvement in 9/11, these results are both heartening and frankly quite amazing, given the mainstream media's ongoing refusal to cover the most critical questions of that day. Our August 2004 Zogby poll of New Yorkers showed nearly half believe certain US officials 'consciously' allowed the attacks to happen and 66% want a fresh investigation, but these were people closest to the tragedy and most familiar with facts refuting the official account. This revelation that so many millions nationwide now also recognize a 9/11 cover up and the need for a new inquiry should be a wake up call for all 2006 political candidates hoping to turn this country around. We think it also indicates Americans are awakening to the larger pattern of deceit that led us into Constitutional twilight and endless war, and that our independent media may have finally come of age."

that poll was 4 years ago....i'd bet the numbers have grown

They should have asked those same folks if they believe the earth is flat or if we ever really landed on the moon.

Those answers too, would be scary.

two things that make you look foolish

1. you believe a politician

2. you believe you are correct

you discredit yourself with blanket statements. one day you will learn how not to deny reality

Wow, the troll assholes are out in force!

Since you guys are such experts, can you explain how the US "provoked" Japan to attack us? Refusing to sell them oil to supply their war machine in China isn't exactly "aggression."

Dig deep into this kind of revisionism and you usually find some pretty ugly antisemitism at the root.

So, all of these responses leave me wondering a few things. First; is it being suggested that the US should have sat out the Second World War and allow all of Europe and beyond to fall under the control of fascist dictators? Because that's what it sounds like. I'm also wondering why Roosevelt would allow the attack to take place unopposed. Wouldn't his purpose have been served by foiling the attack at the last moment and making the supposed intercepts public?

Billy Mitchell went up and down in rank so many times it's hard to keep track, but I'm pretty sure he was a general in 1924.

He went down to colonel in 1925.

After his court marshal, he was even suspended from that rank, and retired.

Of course, he became a general again, posthumously in 1942, after his fears had been realized at Pearl Harbor.
