PEARL HARBOR: What Really Happened & Why It Still Matters

Tomorrow is the 72d anniversary of the Japanese attack on the US Naval Fleet in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.  Many Americans believe FDR had foreknowledge of the attack and let it happen – perhaps even provoked the attack in the first place.  I’ve been doing my homework & I’ll tell you what I came up with, and also tell you how these events of 72 years ago still matter today.

I’m back at my regular time, Sunday 1PM-3PM ET on News-Talk WSB 95.5FM, 750AM, iheartradio & online at  Tune in at showtime and feel free to call! 404-872-0750 and 800 WSB TALK.

      Momica, Please try to read the William Stevenson book on “A Man Called Intrepid” about the real life story of the man That both Roosevelt and Churchill depended upon to provide secret war. This was the beginning of the OSS and finally CIA. The Publisher was Harcourt Brace Jovanovich in 1971. This was when nall thew information was made available in 1971.
      Thre second book ai suggest in The Rising Sun by John Toland Random House 1970. It fully describes the situation with-in the Empire beginning in 1890. Leading up to the start of the Pearl Harbor attack. I caught the end of your Sunday programon Sunday Dec 8th.
