Storyline

FDR Pearl Harbor ConspiracyThe film investigates theories on Pearl Harbor and possible conspiracy(s) there has been much debate as to how and why the United States had been caught unaware, and how much and when American officials knew of Japanese plans and related topics.

Some argue that various parties knew of the attack in advance and may even have let it happen or encouraged it in order to force America into war. Film includes issues of The Pearl Harbor advance - knowledge debate and others.

During the lead up to the attack, the commander of the Japanese task force, Vice Admiral Chuichi Nagumo, received bulletins from Vice Consul Tadashi Morimura in Hawaii. Morimura's real name was Takeo Yoshikawa, a Japanese naval officer who had been assigned to Hawaii on espionage duty in April 1941.

Yoshikawa's bulletins were intercepted, decrypted, and translated by the Office of Naval Intelligence, and the intercepts were also sent to Washington, but Admiral Kimmel did not receive this information. He omits mentioning that many of these were not decrypted or translated before the Japanese attack.

    for all you guys who think we didn't land on the moon google moon mirrors

  • Bill

    ...Smoke and Mirrors...

  • Keith

    @ dale gervais

    Who is to say those mirrors weren't placed by one of the un-manned appolo missions that landed on the moon? I believe the U.S. landed a man on the moon but I like to look at both sides of the story and form my own un-biased opinion.

  • World Witness

    Does it matter? Just like 911.

    Either they knew about it or the commanders were totally incompetent.

    Just my opinion.

  • Nu

    The "mirrors on the moon" mythology is handled quite well in the documentary "Apollo Zero" available for viewing on this very same website. Seems you can bounce lasers of the moon and have them reflect back at you WITHOUT mirrors being on the moon. The evidence cited for this is shown to come straight out of the scientific literature and from reputable scientists.

    Watch "Apollo Zero" and see for yourself.

  • j.torau

    oh hey one more thing jeasus is real so letys bring a religious talk into this concersation about the moon. oh im sorry this is a peazrl harbor video

  • blinds

    @World Witness OF COURSE IT MATTERS. if your country is sending people to war and setting up concentratin camps on US soil and it's all based on a lie, you don't want to know? Japan gets hit with an atomic BOMB ...and itdoesn't matter? WTF is wrong with you people. You cannot be this unconcerned. I mean really....does it matter? If that isn't one of the most pathetic rebuttals i've EVER read.

    Yeah lets all google "moon mirrors"
    That will help stop the new world order!

  • Carl

    Not a conspiracy but just a common incident of war. Someone at some place will manage to draw the gun first.

  • brittany

    what does the moon have to do with it exactly?

  • Hodd

    Common incident of war? Manage to draw the gun first? A little oversimplified no? It's like you're saying all of the circumstances, actions of leaders, and the influences of money interests in bringing the US into the war are just trivialities and don't require the least amount of thought.

  • Xbow

    I agree 100% Hodd. And perhaps Good old Carl should read a book by two time medal of honor winner Major General Smedley D Butler called : War Is A Racket and perhaps he should also listen to Eisenhower's goodbye message to the American people where he coined the phrase 'Military Industrial Complex'.

    Looks like another history channel "mainstream" whitewash.

    There is another very good movie called "Sacrifice at Pearl Harbor" which you should watch as well.

    I love how they weight the arguments: 25% conspiracy and 75% NO conspiracy to influence your opinion on the matter that there was "no conspiracy". They also leave out a lot of important facts mentioned in the above movie.

    They just fail to mention we could have weighted it any way we choose.

    9/11 was an inside job
    Oklahoma city was an inside job
    7/7 was an inside job
    WTC 1993 was in side job
    Vietnam War was a fraud (Gulf of Tonkin was never attacked)

    ........and most other wars going back to Napolean's time were an inside job/planned conspiracy when the Rothschild family spread a false rumor that Britain had lost the war against Napolean (despite Britain actually winning) so they could buy up the London stock exchange shares for pennies on the dollar.

    with the above said, the US government has been caught red handed lying probably 10,000+ times going back to the civil war. Why should you believe anything these liars have said in recent history? They will lie at any cost to save the puppet empire as they care nothing about the people.

    G Edward Griffin has said the "Conspiratorial view of history is the correct view." The more I learn about history the more I hold this to be true.

    Shakespeare said it best:

    "All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players: they have their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts, his acts being seven ages"

    Ask this simple question:

    Cui bono? (Latin for "who benefits")

    Did the US people benefit by entering the war?

    Did Britain and the "allied forces" benefit by us entering the war to save them?

    Please people, do some serious thinking and don't believe everything you are told.

    The founding fathers taught us to be distrustful of government.

    Government NEVER has your best interests at heart.

    Never!!!!!

    Historian David Kennedy seems like a nice man. He may be too nice. Some of the things people like him may be too nice too nice to remember:
    1. There are indications the British, particuarly Winston Churchill did have advance knowledge of the attack.
    2. In 1915 the one-shot sinking of the Lusitania did much to advance US public opinion in favor of war with Germany. At the time the heads of their respective navies were Churchill and Roosevelt.
    3. About two months before Pearl Harbor, a USN warship -- I think it may have been called the Henderson -- provoked an attack on itself by a U-boat by not displaying the US flag while sailing in a war On that occasion FDR trotted out his act of "infamy' speech for the first time.

    But others have found a smoking gun in all this -- at the Smithsonian. On Dec. 8, 1941 FDR rode down to Congress to make his ""Day of Infamy" speech and declaration of war against Japan. He rode there in a bulletproof limousine, one formerly belonging to Al Capone -- and requisitioned from the Smithonian two days before.

    I'm just saying...

    as if anything the government does is to benefit the populace. you say, "did the US benefit from entering the war" f*** no! not the young lad who volunteered because he thought he got slapped in the face and decided to do something about it. but the arms dealers and every other private contractor that made money off of the war did plenty well.

    The doc was informative but a poor copy of the original. Probably recorded off of someones TV? And the end was chopped off! That kinda sucked!

  • uboat863

    Its all in how one wants to digest the information, just like 911. I think it looks suspect, just like 911. The American people have been deceived many times about many things by our leaders over the course of US events, since the colonies have become the United States. I think holding the Federal Government accountable is near to impossible. They do as they dam well please and see the citizens of this country as mere sheep !! Would like to see a more indaped investigation into this and a few other things. It will never happen. All wars are fought for profit. Wars make money for people who make the supplies to fight them.

    Amen brother!

  • kouby

    This documentary is bulls*it, the US didn't decipher the codes before the end of the war, those historians are bunk and are willingly misleading you to discredit the only real economic system that was ever any threat to the elite, the American System, personified in the last century by FDR's New Deal.

  • Cracker122049

    The hardest pill to swallow when you wake up about how corrupt the Federal government really is ,is to understand that 99.9% of the history that you have been taught all of our lives is all LIES and BS! The corruption has gone on so long now that most of our local government and politics are infected too!

  • Vitt

    You're exactly right... to a point. The people of the US did not benefit but the military industrial complex most definitely did. Eisenhower warned us of it. If you don't see how it has gone from insane (like it was back then) to completely ludicrous now, then you aren't paying attention... or you could be where I was for a long time. Denial. It was very hard to come to grips with a lot of information about our government's involvement in both sides of wars for the financial/power gain of a few special interests. It was that same feeling I remember when the girl in high school you're so completely falling for, breaks it off with you. That feeling of hollowness, like something has been taken from you. When you're educating yourself on our deep history in government and war, that feeling comes again in the form of real understanding and awakening. I've been unable to look at things the same way again.
