Day of Deceit – The Truth About FDR and Pearl Harbor

“December 7th, 1941 – a day which will live in infamy.” So said President Franklin Roosevelt in his speech to Congress in asking for a declaration of war against Japan, citing the attack on Pearl Harbor in which over 2,000 Americans were killed. Framing the event as an unprovoked attack on American soil, FDR led the United States into the largest military conflict in its history. What is less clear, however, is how much the inner circle of the Presidency, the war cabinet and the intelligence services 1. knew the attack was coming, and 2. wanted it to occur to spark the necessary public support for a full scale war in both Europe and Asia.
