The Pearl Harbor Myth: Rethinking The Unthinkable

In this book, George Victor addresses the several questions regarding Pearl Harbor: did U.S. Intelligence know beforehand? Did Roosevelt know? If so, why weren’t commanders in Hawaii notified? It is a well-researched and documented volume, complete with hundreds of end-notes and references.

Twelve days before the attack on Pearl Harbor, President Franklin Roosevelt surprised his advisors by saying that war with Japan was about to begin. Secretary of War Stimson noted in his diary:

The question was what we should do. The question was how we should maneuver them into the position of firing the first shot without allowing too much danger to ourselves.

Mr. Victor admits he is an admirer of Roosevelt. While he is clear that Roosevelt manipulated the country into war, he does not condemn him for it:

History has recorded many, many rulers’ manipulations of their people into war without their subordinates blowing the whistle. Presidents James Polk, Abraham Lincoln, William McKinley, and Woodrow Wilson did it before [Roosevelt], and others have done it after him.

This is difficult for many to accept, especially the idea that honorable and upright military leaders would allow such a thing to occur. General George Marshall, in testimony to various tribunals after Pearl Harbor was clear, however:

He testified to a congressional committee that withholding vital information from commanders was routine practice.

It has since been quitely admitted that they KNEW about the attack and allowed it to happen.

Remember, they knew how important it was back then to get the U.S.A. into the War and create Israel.

The American Citizens simply did not understand the importance of it all. Without the creation of Israel, there could never be a future culling of Muslims. So they had to "convince" us.

Ditto for the Gulf of Tonkin incident. It never happened. However, again it was necessary to convince the U.S. Citizens to go to war with North Viet Nam in order to establish the Heroine addiction of America. Without that War we would have never understood how powerful and enjoyable the drug can be to an addict. Since that War, the CIA has made a fortune dealing in Heroine.

Ditto for Afghanistan. The Soviets tried to get control of those Poppies back in 1980's but with the help of CIA Leader Tim Osmond (aka Osama Bin Laden) and the Mujahadeen, the U.S.A. CIA were able to maintain control of the Poppies. It was the Taliban who in their arrogant religious zeal tried to exterminate the Poppie plant - that forced the U.S.A.'s hand again in 2001 so that we had no choice but to regain control of the Poppies.

Remember, 2 of the most valuable commodities on the planet are Poppies and Cocaine (by mass). They are out classed only by Plutonium and Uranium in terms of price per ounce.

Learn the truth and you will be free (of illusions).

I'm not sure about the facts of your statement, nor am I challenging them, I do agree with the spirit of your statement.

I think they knew beforehand and I don't believe the Tonkin incident happened either. It has been said they admitted it never happened.

War is big business and a big money maker. Government is/was/always will be, a big liar.
