That's weird. I wonder why the forum search function works for me but not for kageki? I've heard that deliberate ignorance can make software fail. Have to look into that.

Alright, People. Did Roosevelt know about Pearl Harbor or what?
Pearl Harbor Conspiracy
Interesting aside, related to Bush's decidedly non-heroic "deer in the headlights" behavior when he got the news about the attacks:
No wonder my mother was a little breathless on the telephone. “Listen to this,” she said, preparing me for a snippet from a tome by the popular, late and liberal historian William Manchester. It describes Franklin D. Roosevelt’s initial reaction to news of the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941, that devastated the American fleet, killing 2,403 soldiers, sailors and civilians.
After calling the secretary of state, Manchester writes, “the President of the United States did nothing for 18 minutes.”
As an article in The Washington Times points out, Mr. Kerry’s reaction to the attacks of Sept. 11 wasn’t exactly the stuff of the Minutemen. Mr. Kerry told “Larry King Live” that on the morning of Sept. 11 nearly three years ago, he “sat stunned and unable to think for more than 30 minutes in the Capitol until he and other senators were whisked out of the building to safety,” the Times reports.
