Truthfully, this was and is, “’A date which will live in infamy.’”(Costello 1), but not for the bombing of Pearl Harbor, but for the trickery and the confusion used by the Government and Franklin D.
Japanese forces brutally impaired the American naval fleet stationed at Pearl Harbor and caused unimaginable horror for both the citizens of Hawaii and the United States as a whole.
It was a calm Sunday morning at Pearl Harbor on the island of Oahu.
While Jews found employment in New Deal agencies, old-line agencies such as the State Department, War Department, etc., were dominated by Eastern Oligarchy types that were against hiring Jews. The State Department guided foreign policy, just as it does today. They controlled immigration. Ivy Leaguers staffed the State Department. They were decidedly unsympathetic to the Jewish plight. In early 1940, Breckenridge Long, the American Ambassador to Italy who thought that fascism was great, became the assistant Secretary of State. Long soon began directing the State Department to curtail Jewish immigration into America, and in an infamous June 1940 memo, Long informed his people how to bureaucratically thwart potential immigrants. At that time, Jews were desperately trying to flee Europe, particularly via France and Spain. Long's leadership provided the desired result, and the already paltry immigration to America was quickly cut in half. Long initiated other measures, which brought immigration to a standstill by the summer of 1941. That was months before Pearl Harbor, and America was the world's "great neutral power" at that time.
