Pearl Harbor: The Facts Behind the Fiction
by James Perloff

The raid on Pearl Harbor took the U.S. Pacific Fleet by surprise, but back in Washington, the Roosevelt administration was fully aware of the coming onslaught.

James Perloff is the author of The Shadows of Power: The Council on Foreign Relations and the American Decline and Tornado in a Junkyard: The Relentless Myth of Darwinism. Both books are available through American Opinion Book Services (www.aobs-store.com (external - login to view)).

Over Memorial Day weekend, Disney will release Pearl Harbor, a film granted the largest pre-production budget ($145 million) in cinema history. The lavish production will, no doubt, be viewed by many moviegoers as an accurate portrayal of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Even the movieís leading man has bought into this notion. "I really believe the film will be the definitive piece on the attack," said actor Ben Affleck. This is unfortunate, because the movieís producer, Jerry Bruckheimer, proclaimed in an interview last year: "Thereís a book that just came out which claims [President Franklin D.] Roosevelt knew about the attack. Thatís all b***s***. He didnít know about the attack!"

But comprehensive research has not only shown Washington knew in advance of the attack, but deliberately withheld its foreknowledge from our commanders in Hawaii in the hope that the "surprise" attack would catapult the U.S. into World War II. Oliver Lyttleton, British Minister of Production, stated in 1944: "Japan was provoked into attacking America at Pearl Harbor. It is a travesty of history to say that America was forced into the war."

I know that Pearl Harbour movie a few years back with Jennifer Garner in it was twisted to make the Americans look more "competent" "better" than what happened.
