The Pearl Harbor advance-knowledge debate is a dispute over what, if any, advance knowledge American officials had of Japan’s December 7, 1941 attack on Pearl […]

There is a book called “OP JB” written by Ian Flemming of James Bond fame. It’s short for operation James Bond….the code name for the removal of Martin Bormann…the secretary to Adolf Hitler from the bunker at the end of the second world war. A fascinating true story of Martin Bormann becoming the first person in the British witness protection system in return for safe passage out of Berlin and the handing over of the SS Swiss bank codes to the huge SS fortune held in Swiss banks. At the end of the war, confusion ruled Europe as Allied armies tried to collect as many scientists as they coule…as many secret weapons that Germany was working on…as much gold as they could…as many painting and other treasures as they could…all before the Russians got it. The race was on. It’s a fascinating account and at the end of the book is a section regarding the Japanese fleet on its way to attack Pearl Harbor. Seems a Dutch sub spotted the fleet and radioed in its location. That sub was ordered to go to a certain location for refueling but instead of refueling, it was sunk by its own navy. Get the book and read for yourself. Ian Flemming was a section head in the OSS during the war…the English secret service. He was asked by Churchill to not write this book until after his death which Flemming agreed to do. “M”…the head of the section that James Bond was suppose to be a part of stood for Mortimer in real life. Bormann became a “gentleman farmer” in England and was given a passport so the calls that someone saw him in East Berlin and in South America were probably correct. He could travel…had a British pension and died easily in the late 60’s.
Pearl Harbor was allowed to happen! The Japanese code system was broken by the British 6 months before and they knew it was going to happen. However, Roosevelt needed a reason to enter the war. Up until that time, the US was supplying Germany with guns and planes and raw materials. They were just a customer….a good customer because they paid in gold and on time. It was just business! Grandfather Bush made his fortune supplying “things” to the Germans. The US needed a reason to get into the war and the bombing of Pearl Harbor was the ticket in. However, if my grandfather had died in that attack, I would have called Roosevelt and his government “murders” because they let it happen.
Many governments have staged attacks for political excuses. Hitler did it with the excuse to invade Poland. My theory is that not only the government new about the attack, it was staged by it. My big question is the following. Why a big power like Japan will attack Pearl Harbor, destroy every form of defense in an island thousands of miles from continental US, went back to their island without the occupation of such strategic point to dominate the Pacific and wait if “the sleeping giant” to awake. Were they stupid? Nobody told them that after the attack they can bring the navy and invade the island? This is hard to buy.
I agree with you Turk184 My grandfather was also at Pearl Harbor and he was seriously injured(lost both legs and his right arm too). I have wondered for too long if the American military knew ahead of time if there was a pending attack and how could they just stand by and let it happen too. ALL THE GUYS WE LOST JUST TO GET AMERICA INTO THE FIGHT IT’S NOT RIGHT AND I AM JUST SICK TO THINK OF IT LIKE THAT. THAT THE MILITARY KNEW AND DID NOTHING TO PROTECT OUR GUYS THAT WERE FIGHTING FOR EVERYONE’S FREEDOM!!!!!!!!!!!
Imagine that the US knew the Kido Butai was steaming toward Japan. Imagine the discussion then.
“Do we just let it happen and lose a big part of our fleet?”
“Sure, we can do that, it would start us off with a major disadvantage, but we’d be in the war. True, we’d be in the WRONG war, fighting the Japanese in what amounts to a distraction in the war against the Nazis, but what the heck, we’re too stupid to see that thwarting a sneak attack would be much better than trying to explain why eight battleships are on the bottom the next day.”
“Good thinking! Then we could declare war on Japan, but not on Germany. That way Germany would have to decide if we were at war with them. I’m sure Hitler will be daft enough to do that for us, so there’s no need to declare war against the entire Axis.”
This is what people think happened then? Really? REALLY?
