9/11 Not the Only “Surprise” Attack on U.S.
As the 10th anniversary draws near of the “surprise” attack on the Twin Towers in New York City, one should not forget that December 7, 2011, marks the 70th anniversary of the Japanese attack on our naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. This attack drew the U.S. into World War II and when it was over, had snuffed out the lives of 405,000 Americans.
Over the past seven decades, the facts relating to the scheming in Washington to force the U.S. into the war against Germany by way of Japan has trickled out steadily but slowly — so slowly that in the 70 years following the event, public outrage against the deceit and treason of President Roosevelt and his advisors never gained momentum. By 2011, several generations of Americans had lived and died. The collective memory of Americans moved beyond this point in history, and few Americans now grasp the big picture.
In the coming months the Illinois Taxpayer Education Foundation will again publish its landmark analysis drawing together the courageous research of Pulitzer Prize-winning historian John Toland and Robert B. Stinnett, whose meticulous research revealed the treachery of President Roosevelt as he and his advisors and generals forced Japan into a corner, giving them no choice but to attack — an attack they expected and welcomed.
