Conspiracy Theories

Watch this before anything...

This is footage from a movie about the attack and will give a little background and thanks to VarlooDesign for posting the video.

The Inquiries...

Ten times....ten times the United States investigated the Pearl Harbor attack and each time it was blamed on something like lack of communication or arrogance.

Now here is the weird thing. All 10 came to the same conclusion "This act was carried out because of incompetence, underestimation and misapprehension of Japanese capabilities and intentions, problems resulting from excessive secrecy about cryptography, division of responsibility between Army and Navy, and lack of adequate manpower for intelligence. Now if any of you don't watch crime drama then you don't know that there should always be some difference between something like two witnesses giving their account of a crime. Here we have 10 different inquires spanning over the time since the attack and they all get the same information....COME ON! Now the next difficult spot to bring into light is that it took months for the last man Henry Clausen to even look at the records that showed him what he needed to know because they said he did not have the clearance to see the data and when it finally was released the whole thing was never shown to the public until years later...plenty of time to docker the record!

The Japanese Code

There is always been a standing argument that the United States had broken the code from a Japanese telegram that told them that the Japanese where going to attack Pearl Harbor and there had been evidence to support that because the United States had been a code breaking machine to keep tabs on the war in Europe. Vice Admiral Frank E. Beatty said this "Prior to December 7, it was evident even to me... that we were pushing Japan into a corner. I believed that it was the desire of President Roosevelt, and Prime Minister Churchill that we get into the war, as they felt the Allies could not win without us and all our efforts to cause the Germans to declare war on us failed; the conditions we imposed upon Japan—to get out of China, for example—were so severe that we knew that nation could not accept them. We were forcing her so severely that we could have known that she would react toward the United States. All her preparations in a military way—and we knew their over-all import—pointed that way." 

The McCollum Memo

On October 7, 1940 Lieutenant Commander Arthur McCollum sent a letter detailing 8 ways that the US could have avoided the Japanese Attack.
This is the first page of the McCollum Memo and here is a link to find them all.

The Memo

There are so many different theories so i will save others for another post but here is another link so that people are able to see all of them.

Time for me to rant!

Well heres how i think that it happened. Yes it is possible that lack of communication hand something to do with it but I put it on the shoulders of the president. Franklin Roosevelt contrary to popular believe was in favor of the US involvement because up to this point the Allies were losing and they knew and Roosevelt knew that the US was the only country that could win it for the Allies and there was only one way to get into the war. Get attacked. So when the chance came; he took it. Now he did not plan Pearl Harbor he just looked at the Atlantic instead of the Pacific and then when he turned around he was able to get into a war. "A Day that will Live in Infamy" but what will it live for? Poor organization? Or was it something a little more subtle?Lie maybe a blind eye to the obvious...I think so... This is suspicion88 saying keep an eye on the look out...
