PEARL HARBOR II: The Technology of Manipulation 
Did Washington know about the World Trade Center attacks in advance?

Translated from the Russian, slightly abridged and modified 

Two years ago, on the eve of the beginning of the 2nd Chechen War, when apartment houses were being blown up in Moscow, evidence surfaced that they might have been blown up not by Chechen terrorists, but by the Kremlin, to create a pretext to declare war. Now some are voicing a similar theory in relation to the recent New York terrorist attacks, i.e., that Washington itself had a hand in them. If this sounds too far-fetched for you, then read on. 

Live coverage of the attack was just getting underway in New York, and already we were hearing the words: "Pearl Harbor, Pearl Harbor. It's another Pearl Harbor!" Just how accurate this comparison was could be judged by the cold shiver that ran up my spine and the spines of others who remember their history. 

For consumers of hamburgers raised on the Hollywood version of that tragedy, "Pearl Harbor!" is a rallying cry to destroy the infidels, only with Arabs this time in the role of the Japanese. I can imagine how fat-bottomed housewives all over America shed patriotic tears into their popcorn at the sight of those boys singing on the Capitol steps. Those more skeptical of official American propaganda, however, will find the following facts to be a good memory-refresher: 

On December 7, 1941 a surprise Japanese air-attack over Pearl Harbor resulted in 4574 casualties (killed, injured, and missing), 177 aircraft, two destroyers, two squadron minesweepers and a lot of smaller vessels destroyed. That day went into US history as a "day of infamy". This has been pounded into the heads of all American schoolchildren for the last 60 years. But what's been beaten out of their heads just as insistently? 

1. On January 27, 1941, the US ambassador in Tokyo informed his government that "in case of conflict between the United States and Japan, the Japanese intend a surprise attack on Pearl Harbor". 

2. The legendary Soviet agent Richard Sorge informed the Soviet Government in October 1941 that "the Japanese intend to attack Pearl Harbor in the next 60 days," and received an answer that this information had been passed on to President Roosevelt. (From Sorge's admission, published in the "New York Daily News" of May 17, 1951.) 

3. From September 1941 until the moment of the attack, all Japanese communiques intercepted and deciphered by American intelligence pointed to the impending attack on Pearl Harbor, but they were not passed on to local command: Documents published after the war show that the American base in Hawaii was deprived of all information about the inevitable attack. Even such agitprop as the Discovery Channel is in agreement with this. 

4. On December 1, 1941, the head of the Far East Division of US Naval Intelligence wrote in his report to the commander of the Pacific Fleet: "War between the United States and Japan will begin in the nearest future." The report never reached the commander's desk, because it was "accidentally" detained by his superiors. 

5. On December 5, 1941 Colonel Sadtler from US military communications wrote the following telegram to his command, based on information he'd received: "War with Japan will begin immediately; exclude all possibility of a second Port Arthur." This telegram was also detained. 

6. The Japanese' answer to Roosevelt's ultimatum, tantamount to a declaration of war, was received by Washington on the 6th of December, 1941. Not a word of this was passed on to the Pearl Harbor command. 

In addition to these incontrovertible facts there are the memoirs of three high-ranking commanders of the US Navy, all participants in the events surrounding Pearl Harbor: Rear Admiral Kimmel, head of the Pacific Fleet; Fleet Admiral Halsey, under Kimmel's command in December, 1941; and Rear Admiral Theobald, commander of the minesweeper squadron at Pearl Harbor. 

>From Kimmel's memoirs: "It was part of Roosevelt's plan that no warning be sent to the Hawaiian Islands. Our leaders in Washington, who deliberately didn't inform our forces in Pearl Harbor, cannot be justified in any way. The Pearl Harbor command wasn't informed at all about ... the American note of November 26, 1941, delivered to the Japanese ambassador, which practically exluded further negotiations and made war in the Pacific inevitable.... The Army and Navy command in the Hawaiian Islands received not even a hint about intercepted and deciphered Japanese telegrams which were forwarded to concerned parties in Washington on the 6th and 7th of December, 1941." 

Fleet Admiral Halsey: "Our intelligence data spoke of a likely attack by Japan on the Philippines or the Dutch East Indies. Although Pearl Harbor wasn't excluded from discussion, everything relayed to us pointed to other objects of attack. If we had known that the Japanese were continually collecting detailed information about the exact location and movements of our warships in Pearl Harbor (which is made clear by intercepted reports), we naturally would have concentrated our efforts on preparations to repel an attack on Pearl Harbor." 

Rear Admiral Theobald: "An incontestable fact in the true history of Pearl Harbor is the repeated withholding from Admiral Kimmel and General Short (Navy and Army command in Pearl Harbor, who were later made scapegoats for the catastrophe) of supremely important military information.... There's never been a case in history when a commander was not informed that his country will be at war within a few hours and that his forces will most likely become the first object of attack at sunrise." Admiral Theobald cites the testimony of Admiral Stark (head of Navy Headquarters in Washington, who hid Japan's factual declaration of war from Adm. Kimmel), that he acted on orders from above, which in his case could only mean President Roosevelt himself. The most incredible fact is the withholding of information from Admiral Kimmel. 

Admiral Kimmel and General Short were the lowest links in the chain of command. They were made into scapegoats, as we mentioned above. Both were forced to retire. The highest link in the chain, Roosevelt, died within a few years, taking to his grave other secrets about that war. For example, who he took orders from. Delving into a little history, we can reconstruct a chronology of events: 

In November 1941 War Minister Henry L. Stimson, after meeting with the presidential administration on November 25, 1941, wrote in his diary: "The discussion was about how we should maneuver to force the Japanese to fire the first shot, while not exposing ourselves to too great a danger; this will be a difficult task. The Japanese air attack on December 7th allowed President Roosevelt to announce to the whole country that the surprise attack had put her in a state of war (note the condition of today's US armed forces: delta, in preparation for war). The "difficult task" had been solved. And America, you see, already had good experience with such "difficult tasks": In 1898 the American battleship "Maine" was "sunk by a Spanish mine" in the port of Havana. The rallying cry "Remember the Maine" was used to whip up anti-Spanish hysteria in the American population, after which war was declared on Spain. Many years later, when the "Maine" was raised from the ocean floor it was established that the battleship's armor had been blown out by an explosion from inside the ship.

The whole world is talking today about the tragedy in America. Grief has come into thousands of homes. Someone at this very moment is agonizingly dying under the rubble. But that's not a tragedy. Just as Pearl Harbor paled in comparison to the American bombings of Dresden, Hiroshima and Nagasaki which followed, the enormity of what awaits us will dwarf the tragedy of Pearl Harbor II. 

The plotters of such mass-murders are not mentally-incompetent maniacs of course. The deaths of thousands in and of themselves are of no benefit to anyone. What's important are the consequences. That's where we'll uncover the real aim of the plotters. We'll be able to get a good idea of who organized this whole nightmare by watching the American leadership's actions in the near future, and its actions will be as follows: 

1. The tragedies in New York and Washington will untie Israel's hands for a full-fledged war against the Palestinians. It's hard to even imagine what turn this could take. 

2. The USA will organize a land-based reprisal operation on the territory of the designated villain. American military men have already announced that it's not worth spending million-dollar missiles to destroy 20-dollar tents. If they decide Bin Laden's the perpetrator, American GI's will soon be in Kabul. The US has a wonderful tradition: once its soldiers have occupied a given patch of the planet as the result of a "peacekeeping" operation, they can be smoked out only by another, opposing peacekeeping operation. By the way, from Kabul one can very conveniently hit Moscow even with tactical missiles. Twenty years ago such a reprisal mission wouldn't have entered anyone's head. We would have answered by landing our paratroopers in California. Maybe that's why the Trade Center towers remained standing all that time? 

Even supposing Russian military brass swallow this all in silence, what about the Chinese? The Afghan mountains offer an ideal position from which to destroy China's intercontinental ballistic missiles at launch (and the Yanks will never let the Chinese get a foothold in the oceans or in space). Judging by the recent quarrels over the American spy plane, the Chinese might not be so "understanding". 

3. Using defense of its citizens against further attacks by "outlaw states" as a justification, the Pentagon will go ahead with a full-fledged anti-missile shield. Its space-based lasers can already knock any object out of the sky. Once everything's in place, who will dare to raise their voice in objection? 

4. The introduction of total control over the population will help to prevent further such terrorist acts. Modern computer technology will create changes in society that Orwell couldn't have imagined in his worst nightmares. A microchip fulfilling the role of passport, credit card, universal key and medical card can be sewn under the skin of every citizen. Using this chip the everyone's whereabouts will be known at every moment. "Big Brother" may have other uses for the chip which we "little brethren" will be entirely unaware of. Introducing such measures would raise a hue and cry under normal peacetime conditions, but when airplanes are knocking down skyscrapers and subway trains are exploding citizens will quickly forget about their rights in order to secure the safety of their own behinds. 

In short, the perspectives are quite promising. Just how promising we'll discover soon.
