Is this an important day?  Indeed--it is my grandson's birthday remembrance!  Historically?  It is a day of shame and lies which cost thousands of lives--deliberately.

Dharma, please reproduce this article as nearly perfectly as you can without a scanner because I desire this man have full credit--although I wonder if the people who worked so diligently with him as resource, will have the same honor.  Most have to work "unknown" for protection--those are the ones I so greatly honor; those who serve silently because it "is the right thing to do and the cost simply must be paid to truth?  Blessings are unto those ones.

Is THIS the most important thing we could write about today?  NO, NO AND NO.  But it is something we must again present to you because you get lost in the hoopla of the celebrations and forget the TRUTH!





Capsule prolog: As the nation pauses to recall the 50th anniversary of Japan's sneak attack on Pearl Harbor in Hawaii, it is now more important than ever to examine how the United States was finally plunged into World War II.  Even Establishment historians now concede Franklin Roosevelt had been actively scheming to involve America in the conflict, despite the clear-cut view of the American people [who] wanted their country to remain at peace.

Now, in this special SPOTLIGHT OVERVIEW, investigative reporter Mike Blair provides evidence not only of FDR's secret machinations to provoke a Japanese attack on the United States, but of the fact that lives of American servicemen had been sacrificed to the "cause" before the first bomb began falling on Battleship Row.

Truth, the "infamy" occurred long before that sleepy Sunday morning in Hawaii.

At about 7:50 a.m. on December 7, 1941, the first of 350 Japanese carrier-based dive bombers and torpedo planes slipped through Kolikole Pass, the picturesque, saddle-like trough through the Waianae Mountains west of Pearl Harbor, and commenced their attack on the massive U.S. naval base nestled in the deep water of the harbor.

Thus began what President Franklin Roosevelt had wanted since his friend Winston Churchill and the British government had gone to war with Germany in 1939--a reason to place in harm's way the lives of 16-plus million young American servicemen during what would become World War II.

After four bloody and ghastly years after Pearl Harbor, Europe and much of the Far East lay in ruin and millions were dead, including 497,316 of those young U.S. military personnel.

Most Americans alive today were not yet born that Sunday morning in December, when our nation learned Pearl Harbor had been attacked.  But everyone is aware of "Remember Pearl Harbor", the slogan that launched America into the war through books, magazines and such Hollywood epics as Tora! Tora! Tora!

The statistics of the attack are clear: 2, 403 Americans dead; another 1,178 wounded in varying degrees; 188 aircraft destroyed on the ground and 18 U.S. warships destroyed or gravely damaged, including eight battleships.

Two of those dreadnoughts, Arizona and Utah, still rest in the mud at the bottom of Pearl Harbor, memorials to those who lost their lives.

Every year, an estimated 1.4 million people visit the Arizona Memorial, taking a seven-minute voyage across Pearl Harbor to gaze down at the wreckage, where 1,177 young American sailors still remain entombed.  Oil from the ship's fuel bunkers still discolors the blue Pacific waters as it oozes to the surface.


This December 7 is being called the "50th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor."  But this really isn't the case.  Anniversaries are days of celebration; this December 7 is a day to, yes, "Remember Pearl Harbor", but now, 50 years later, it is also time to put this tragedy in its proper context.

There are many stories about American heroism at Pearl Harbor that should be remembered.

It is unfortunate that no one can remember the name of the young engineer on the cruiser San Francisco, who rushed topside during the attack, telling the ensign, "Thought I'd come up and die with you."

Nor can anyone seem to recall the name of the young bridge commander on the Ramapo, who shot at Japanese airplanes with his .45-caliber Colt pistol, or the boatswain's mate, who, without any sort of firearm available to him, threw wrenches at low-flying aircraft.

Nor, after the archivists have now revealed the truth, should it be forgotten the Army and Navy at Pearl Harbor, were each at their lowest level of alert when the Japanese struck.  Only 25 percent of the base's anti-aircraft guns were manned.  One-third to one-half of all naval officers were ashore. Radar was only operated from 4 to 7 am.  American bombers and fighter aircraft were conveniently parked in bunches at Hickam and Wheeler airfields, making them easy targets for the attacking Japanese bombers.

It should be remembered, as recalled by James G. Stahlman, a close friend of then Secretary of the Navy Frank Know, what Knox had told him: that he--along with Secretary of War Henry Stimson, Army Chief of Staff Gen. George C. Marshall, Navy Chief of Staff Adm. Harold R. Stark, FDR's top aide Harry Hopkins and the President himself--spent most of the night of December 6-7 at the White House.

They were waiting for what they knew was coming, as the military command at Pearl Harbor unwittingly stood at its lowest level of alert.


"Did you receive our dispatch the night before the attack?" Knox asked Adm. Husband E. Kimmel, the U.S. naval commander at Pearl, when he (Knox) arrived at the devastated base on December 10.  Kimmel replied he had not.

Know wrote in his original report to Roosevelt: "The Army and Navy commands had received a general war warning on November 27, but a special war warning sent out by the War Department at midnight (Eastern time), December 7 to the Army was not received until some hours after the attack on that date."

Noted historian and author John Toland asked in his book about the Pearl Harbor attack, INFAMY, "Had someone in the White House intercepted that midnight warning to Hawaii without Knox's knowledge?"

Gen. Albert C. Wedemeyer, a staff officer of U.S. Army Chief of Staff Gen. George C. Marshall, told Toland that at a meeting in 1943, Vice Adm. Conrad E.L. Helfrich of the Royal Netherlands Navy expressed wonder at how the American military could have been surprised at Pearl Harbor. The Dutch officer told Wedemeyer the Dutch military had broken the Japanese military codes and knew Pearl Harbor was to be attacked.

"[Helfrich] seemed surprised I did not know this", Wedemeyer said, "and when I explained I doubted seriously this information was known in Washington prior to the Pearl Harbor attack, Adm. Helfrich was skeptical because it was his clear recollection his government had notified my government."


British historian John Costello relates in his book THE PACIFIC WAR that Churchill and Roosevelt were engaged in deliberately provoking the Japanese to attack.

A Churchill cable to Roosevelt warned of "irrefutable proof of an impending attack"--"timed", according to Churchill, "for the first week in December".  A follow-up cable from Churchill queried, "Should we act or react?"

Was there still indecision among FDR and his advisers at the White House the night of December 6-7?

Costello noted that at a meeting in Argentina in August 1941 Roosevelt had told Churchill he intended to become more proactive in his relations with the Japanese.  "If the enemy doesn't like that, they can just attack American forces", Roosevelt told his British friend, and thus, the Japanese, FDR said, would be "forcing the issue".


A few days before Pearl Harbor, Roosevelt told Churchill that America and Britain "should obviously all be in together", and it "might be just a few more days until our support is given" to Britain's war effort.

Elsewhere in this OVERVIEW, FDR's attempts to provoke Japan are noted.

Even the New York Times, which has participated in many historical cover-ups and disinformation campaigns, in an article in its Sunday news magazine of November 3, concerning Japanese recollections of Pearl Harbor, noted that while Japan was engaged in a war with China the U.S. government in "a series of ever tighter economic sanctions...banned sales to Japan of high-octane aviation gasoline and then iron and steel scrap."


"Finally, Washington froze all Japanese assets in the United States, making it impossible for Japan to pay for American oil imports and resulting in a cutoff of 80 percent of Japan's oil supplies."

If any further evidence were needed, the recent war with Iraq over the security of the oil flow to Western nations from the Persian Gulf is adequate evidence of the importance governments place on oil supplies.


Could Japan have been provided its final provocation to attack when its leaders read a faked U.S. War Department "Victory Program", a blueprint for "total war" in Europe AND Asia, in the December 4, 1941 edition of the Washington Times-Herald.

A banner headline blared "FDR'S WAR PLANS".  Beneath it was: "Goal is 10 Million Armed Men: Half to Fight in AEF.  Proposed Land Drive by July 1, 1943, to Smash Nazis."

"I could not have been more astounded if a bomb had been dropped on Washington", Wedemeyer related.  "Here was irrefutable evidence America was preparing to enter the war, and soon. President Roosevelt's promises to keep us out of war were interpreted as campaign oratory."

Wedemeyer had been the U.S. Army General Staff officer responsible for preparing the "Victory Program".

It is a well-known fact that the go-ahead for the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor had not been certain even after the strike force has set sail for the Hawaiian Islands.  The final decision rested upon then ongoing negotiations, in which the Japanese were attempting to get the Roosevelt administration to ease its economic stranglehold on Japan.

Could "FDR'S WAR PLANS" have been the final motivation for the Japanese to strike first?


In any case, a visitor at the White House on December 7, 1941, found Roosevelt idly passing the time at one of his favorite hobbies--working on his stamp collection.


Dharma, allow us a rest-break please.  There are several segments to this writing and we need to cover them all and then we will give information as to how to get reprints for both SPOTLIGHT will carry them with ability to get extras, and probably so should America West.  There are several authors who have written excellent proof of this actual and deliberately set-up crime but I cannot give them all and I will not leave any out deliberately or accidentally.  We shall simply stick to this writer. Thank you.

Hatonn to stand-by.  I ask that you stay alert and responsive to my summons, scribe, for if the Elite have their way this day--you will have another day of infamy to add to the "beginnings of war and how they happen".  So be it.  Salu.
