Representative Frank Keefe (R-WI), member, Joint Committee on the Investigation of the Pearl Harbor Attack, Congress of the United States, voting with the Majority but whose sentiments favored the Minority: “…I think that the facts in this record clearly demonstrate that Hawaii was always the No. 1 point of danger and that both Washington and Hawaii should have known it at Representative Frank Keefe (R-WI), member, Joint Committee on the Investigation of the Pearl Harbor Attack, Congress of the United States, voting with the Majority but whose sentiments favored the Minority: “…I think that the facts in this record clearly demonstrate that Hawaii was always the No. 1 point of danger and that both Washington and Hawaii should have known it at all times and acted accordingly…” This book is the second of the author’s two books based on the July 20, 1946 joint congressional report on the Pearl Harbor attack, December 7, 1941. It tells the story of how a partisan Congress, controlled by the Democratic Party, in an 8-2 vote on the Report, misled the American people on responsibility for the attack. It highlights the views of two U.S. Senators, Homer Ferguson (R-MI) and Owen Brewster (R-ME), (the Minority), who strongly disagreed with the Report’s conclusions, including the Majority’s conclusion that the ultimate responsibility for the attack rested with Japan. In the Minority view, supported by detailed references to the record before the Joint Committee, President Franklin D. Roosevelt, his cabinet members, and the military and naval commanders in Hawaii, bore responsibility for the attack, which they also concluded was foreseeable. They further concluded that President Harry Truman’s investigative restrictions cast an “iron curtain” over the investigation, and that Secretary of State Cordell Hull’s abrupt abandonment of a temporary truce proposal with Japan and thus to possibly avert war was a highly questionable diplomatic decision. The previous book, Prelude to Disaster: How Imperial Japan’s Diplomatic Treachery Led to America’s Greatest Military Disaster – Pearl Harbor, was also based on the congressional report and gives the reader an inside look at the Japanese diplomatic deception which preceded the Pearl Harbor attack. It details the negotiations between representatives of Imperial Japan and officials of the U.S. Department of State while war clouds loomed in the background and provides an enlightening background review for those readers unfamiliar with the diplomatic buildup to the attack.
