On the 71st Anniversary of Pearl Harbor: Have We Learned Anything?
December 7, 2012
If We Don’t Learn Our History, We’re Doomed to Repeat It
Today is the 71st anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor.
We of course honor the courageous men who died that day. But we also questioned why it happened.
After all, American and British military officers and code-breakers admit that the American and British knew of the Japanese plan to attack Pearl Harbor — down to the exact date of the attack — and allowed it to happen to justify America’s entry into World War II.
Even worse, it appears that the government actively interfered with the military’s ability to defend our sailors, gagged whistleblowers … and then covered up the sordid affair.
Indeed, evidence for a cover up is overwhelming.
If we don’t learn our history, we’re doomed to repeat it.
