Pearl harbor...

So, we were all told it was a surprise attack... But now, they are saying we knew the attack was going to happen?! How do you feel about our government lying to us?

  • Of course they are lying to us, they have always lied to gain trust and a reliance one them. I mean, look at us now! They will always lie and people will always believe whatever the government says. Its sad.

  • If any of you watch ed movies with Ben Affleck, when the radioman heard the planes his superior told him 1st it was a flock of birds then that it wasOUR planes cming back from training. Our government was so worried about Europe & Hitler they didn't think any "allie" would pull a Brutus on us, smile at us one minute & stab us in the back the next.

    Same thing with 9/11, there had been threats made but they weren't taken seriously.

  • They have been accused of it forever. They didn't know it was coming. They did not think Japan was capable because it was believed with the squint to the eyes of the Japanese, that they had too bad of eye sight. And they would not have had the bulk of the US Naval fleet in one location.

  • CHarlan, do you really hate the American military that much?

    OP, do you have a link to what you're talking about? I'd like to see exactly what you're drawing this conclusion from.

  • This is as old as the war itself. There has never been any evadence  found to prove this. They have poured over FDR, FBI, DOD and other government papers for years trying to find something, and they never have found anything.


    And minnsetonice you have been told the truth on many things, you just choose to not accept it as the truth.

  • Lies and lives lost. It's a part of history and the present, it will never end.

  • I haven't seen a news article on this. Do you have a link to one?

    In any case, the government is never fully truthful.

    It has been a conspiracy theory just about since the day it happened.
