    COS George Marshall seems to have a fan base that survived into the 21st century and is still reluctant to examine his conduct on the "Day of Infamy". Marshall was at the top of the military food chain. Commanders in Hawaii had the skilled Navy Intelligence geeks but only Marshall had access to "Magic" and he guarded it to the point that he sacrificed about 3,000 Sailors caught below decks on the Arizona 12/7/41 at 0800 hrs. Legend has it that Marshall disappeared the night before the attack and although he was credited with almost a photographic memory he couldn't recall where he was while his frantic staff was trying to contact him. After an uncharacteristically late arrival at his office he still had hours to warn Hawaii about the decoded message indicating an imminent attack but he read it and re-read it until the Army message board went down. He could have made a phone call but he sent a generic Western Union telegram that arrived about the same time as the Japanese Zeros.

    The TV Schedule didn't have any stuff on Pearl Harbor either.
    No movies nor history shows.





    My uncle was in the Navy on Battleship Nevada,
    tied up next to the Arizona and the only battleship
    that got underway because they never let it get cold as
    all the other battleships were.


    While the Pacific fleet was under repairs he was
    in the Atlantic.
    His heaviest grudge was against the French who
    fired on "him" in the North Africa landing.

    Across an immense, unguarded, ethereal border, Canadians, cool and unsympathetic,
    regard our America with envious eyes and slowly and surely draw their plans against us.

    A smarmy post that is intended to be funny? WW2 Vets are dying out but there are still Americans who lived through the era. Insult them at your peril.

    The point remains that nobody can explain why COS Marshall didn't warn Pearl Harbor when he had the "Magic" intercepts in his hand.

    Because no one wants to rewrite history.

    If the information of many occult things from that war comes out compromising the official version, then a complete chaos will invade the minds of people.

    There are actions which can't be repaired, and spreading out "your version" even when is well founded with evidence, you won't fix those past events.

    A different scenario is when Relativity theory has been found to be garbage to the square, then, any effort to show the error will help for new generations to get back to science and forget that theory full of fantasies.

    In this case, the news media is trying to evade comments like yours after promoting the remembrance of that day. They try to avoid conflict, but you are free to express what you know or what you think you know.

    Occult? What was the "official" version? In subsequent congressional hearings Marshall continued to insist that he couldn't remember where he was on the evening before the "day of infamy" even though he was credited by "historians" with a near photographic memory.
