Don’t forget that the Japanese Purple Code was cracked months before Pearl Harbor but FDR knew the attack was coming and when, but did not let our servicemen prepare other than sending our two carriers out on routine patrol two weeks before the attack. FDR used the outrage from the public to enter into a war that half of Americans wanted to sit out. Is Obama modeling his Presidency after the FDR Model? Will he use a war like FDR did to keep in office? these are the questions we need to ask.
I’ve always believed FDR knew exactly what was comin’. Interesting note on that from the book ”Out of the Depths”, by Edgar Harrell, USMC, survivor of the Indianapolis sinking. From crewman Daniel E. Brady: On Dec. 5, the Indianapolis received orders to get underway in one hour; 50 Marines in full battle gear came on board, along with 40 or so civilian shipyard workers, truckloads of food and vegetables were dumped on the usually off limits quarter deck. The ship left port with only a third of her regular crew. The Indy was also FDR’s favorite ship.
Back to Obama setting us up: In this month alone, they aredismantling the low level radar system along our southern border, the Chinese are given control of oil deposits in the Gulf of Mexico, and a Chinese general is visiting Washington. Coincidence?
