AMERICA'S LEADERS KNEW
Like it or not, the book "Day Of Deceit: The Truth About FDR and Pearl Harbor" by Robert Stinnett, who served in the U.S. Navy with distinction during World War II, examines and proves the tragic truth that our nation's leaders were fully aware that the Japanese army was going to attack Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941.

One reader writes:
Because of the brave men, like my father and uncles, who fought for America in World War II, because of them, not in spite of them, does the heartbreaking story of "Day of Deceit" need to be shouted from the housetops. The Old Testament prophet Isaiah lamented how there is no one so blind as him who refuses to see, and no oneso deaf as him who refuses to hear. The mountainous--and ever-mounting--pile of evidence that Roosevelt and the United States political leadership dragged our country into a war it had told them repeatedly it did not want is rendering the arguments of those who regurgitate the received history of America and "The Good War" increasingly untenable. And what better chronicler of these wicked deeds than a World War II combat veteran like Stinnett, who agrees that they should have been done? What agenda can he have other than getting the truth out? He is certainly on no crusade against FDR. In recent interviews, he seems not to take issue with the postulate that the thousands ofAmerican sailors and soldiers who were murdered at Pearl Harbor were a small price to pay for ridding the worldof Naziism, etc. (And replacing it with our allies the Communists for a half-century.) My question is--who really murdered those brothers, those fathers, those husbands, those sons of ours? A nation that does not know its own true history, what it has done well and where it has erred, will eventually bring utter ruin on itself and its people. History is quite consistent on this point. I have forefathers who have fought in every American war, several of them in the Revolution. I salute their courage and valor. And I pray that if ever my children or grandchildren or great-grandchildren are called upon to shoulder arms, the leaders of America will have the moral courage to tell them the truth of why they are doing it.
