Japanese language version of this page
President Roosevelt (FDR) provoked the attack, knew about it in advance and covered up his failure to warn the Hawaiian commanders. FDR needed the attack to sucker Hitler to declare war, since the public and Congress were overwhelmingly against entering the war in Europe. It was his backdoor to war.

FDR blinded the commanders at Pearl Harbor and set them up by --

denying intelligence to Hawaii (HI)
on November 27 and later, misleading the commanders into thinking negotiations with Japan were continuing to prevent them from realizing the war was on
having false information sent to HI about the location of the Japanese carrier fleet.

The President Roosevelt (FDR) needed a reason to enter the war against hitler. But the opposition from public and the congress was strong. He needed a strong reason to seal their mouths and to proceed with his motive.
The best chance nodded the door when the japanese codes to attack pearl harbor was traced. He used his strategy to his motive.

I wondered the same thing for a while, on my own, but never said anything as i dont see any relevance in shouting from atop a pedestal with a megaphone. I do however, admire your foresight. Thank you.

If this allegation is true, then it is indeed very shocking...

There is no evidence that the US or UK knew about the attack in advance. Mark Willey's page is a pinnacle of quote mining and cherry picking through the available information. I told him this on the phone one day back in 1994. He had called me to ask about putting SRH-149 online since it "had the proof that FDR knew about the attack." I obtained 149, and put it online. It doesn't show any such thing. However, Mark put a link up to let people read it for themselves and "see that it does, indeed, show that FDR knew." Sad, really.
