On 27 January 1941, Dr. Ricardo Shreiber, the Peruvian envoy in Tokyo told Max Bishop, third secretary of the US embassy that he had just learned from his intelligence sources that there was a war plan involving a surprise attack on Pearl Harbor. This information was sent to the State Department and Naval Intelligence and to Admiral Kimmel at Hawaii.
On February 1, 1941, the Division of Naval Intelligences placed no credence in “rumors that in the event of trouble breaking out between the United States and Japan, the Japanese intend to make a surprise attack against Pearl Harbor with all of their strength and employing all of their equipment”…
So, was Pearl Harbor – “mother of all conspiracies“, because “…everything that the Japanese were planning to do was known to the United States…” as Mark Willey wrote in his book ?
Tip of the Hat to Berto Jongman.
Phi Beta Iota: It is now known that Franklin Deleanor Roosevelt (FDR) ordered eight deliberate covert actions — acts of war — against Japan in the years leading up to Pearl Harbor, and that he was explicitly conscious of the need for a “Pearl Harbor” if he was to overcome public antipathy toward any foreign entanglements, least of all engagement in a war “over there.” Just about every war the US has ever gotten into has been based on lies and done because the bankers wanted war, not because war was in the public interest. 9/11 was a false flag event managed by Dick Cheney (who leveraged an original plot that thirteen different countries told us about in advance). We went to war on Iraq on the basis of 935 now documented lies that our military flag officers chose not to challenge, sacrificing their integrity — and their Oath to defense the Constitution against all enemies domestic and foreign — for evermore.
