Did the United States deliberately maneuver the Japanese into a political position whose only way out was to attack the United States? Knowing this, did the United States deliberately allow that attack to happen? And when a complex of intelligence collected over 6 months, right up to the final hours before the attack, indicated that a Japanese naval attack against American Naval and Air Forces at Pearl Harbor would occur on the morning of Sunday December 7th 1941, did the United States deliberately withhold prior warning to America's armed forces stationed there to prepare for the attack? This excellent 1989 BBC documentary answers all these questions with an emphatic yes - not only as the result of their careful research, but with the weight of evidence supplied by many excellent exclusive interviews with the military men, intelligence officers, politicians and spies directly involved with the matter. Even the famed double agent "Tricycle" gives exclusive testimony in this documentary of his providing the Americans a microfilm given him by the Nazis filled with detailed questions about US military forces at Pearl Harbor many months before the attack, which microfilm was given to President Roosevelt himself under the direct personal orders of Prime Minister Winston Churchill! If you want a documentary in your library that closes the case for you and for any one else who want to argue the subject with you, this is the documentary to have!
October 7, 1940: World War II: The McCollum Memo proposes bringing the United States into the war in Europe by provoking the Japanese to attack the United States. The McCollum memo, also known as the Eight Action Memo was a memorandum, dated more than a year before the Pearl Harbor attack, sent by Lieutenant Commander Arthur H. McCollum, who "provided the president with intelligence reports on [Japan]... [and oversaw] every intercepted and decoded Japanese military and diplomatic report destined for the White House" in his capacity as director of the Office of Naval Intelligence' Far East Asia section. It was sent to Navy Captains Dudley Knox, who agreed with the actions described within the memo, and Walter Stratton Anderson. The memo outlined the general situation of several nations in World War II and recommended an eight-part course of action for the United States to take in regard to the Japanese Empire in the South Pacific, suggesting the United States provoke Japan into committing an "overt act of war". The memo illustrates several people in the Office of Naval Intelligence promoted the idea of goading Japan into war: "It is not believed that in the present state of political opinion the United States government is capable of declaring war against Japan without more ado... If by [the elucidated eight-point plan] Japan could be led to commit an overt act of war, so much the better.". The McCollum memo contained an eight-part plan to counter rising Japanese power over East Asia: 1. Make an arrangement with Britain for the use of British bases in the Pacific, particularly Singapore; 2. Make an arrangement with the Netherlands for the use of base facilities and acquisition of supplies in the Dutch East Indies; 3. Give all possible aid to the Chinese government of Chiang-Kai-Shek; 4. Send a division of long range heavy cruisers to the Orient, Philippines, or Singapore; 5. Send two divisions of submarines to the Orient; 6. Keep the main strength of the U.S. fleet now in the Pacific[,] in the vicinity of the Hawaiian Islands; 7. Insist that the Dutch refuse to grant Japanese demands for undue economic concessions, particularly oil; 8. Completely embargo all U.S. trade with Japan, in collaboration with a similar embargo imposed by the British Empire.
December 7, 1941: World War II: The Asia-Pacific War: The Attack On Pearl Harbor: National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day: The U.S. Naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, was attacked in a surprise military strike by the Imperial Japanese Navy Air Service, an event memorialized in the United States as National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day. The attack led to the United States' entry into World War II. The Japanese military leadership referred to the attack as the Hawaii Operation and Operation AI, and as Operation Z during its planning. Japan intended the attack as a preventive action to keep the U.S. Pacific Fleet from interfering with military actions they planned in Southeast Asia against overseas territories of the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, and the United States. Over the next seven hours there were coordinated Japanese attacks on the U.S.-held Philippines, Guam and Wake Island and on the British Empire in Malaya, Singapore, and Hong Kong. The attack commenced at 7:48 a.m. Hawaiian Time. The base was attacked by 353 Imperial Japanese aircraft (including fighters, level and dive bombers, and torpedo bombers) in two waves, launched from six aircraft carriers. All eight U.S. Navy battleships were damaged, with four sunk. All but the USS Arizona were later raised, and six were returned to service and went on to fight in the war. The Japanese also sank or damaged three cruisers, three destroyers, an anti-aircraft training ship, and one minelayer. One hundred eighty-eight U.S. aircraft were destroyed; 2,403 Americans were killed and 1,178 others were wounded. Important base installations such as the power station, dry dock, shipyard, maintenance, and fuel and torpedo storage facilities, as well as the submarine piers and headquarters building (also home of the intelligence section), were not attacked. Japanese losses were light: 29 aircraft and five midget submarines lost, and 64 servicemen killed. One Japanese sailor, Kazuo Sakamaki, was captured. The surprise attack came as a profound shock to the American people and led directly to the American entry into World War II in both the Pacific and European theaters. The following day, December 8, the United States declared war on Japan, and several days later, on December 11, Germany and Italy declared war on the U.S. The U.S. responded with a declaration of war against Germany and Italy. Domestic support for non-interventionism, which had been fading since the Fall of France in 1940, disappeared. There were numerous historical precedents for unannounced military action by Japan, but the lack of any formal warning, particularly while negotiations were still apparently ongoing, led President Franklin D. Roosevelt to proclaim December 7, 1941, "a date which will live in infamy". Because the attack happened without a declaration of war and without explicit warning, the attack on Pearl Harbor was later judged in the Tokyo Trials to be a war crime.
