Scott Horton Interviews Robert Stinnett
Robert Stinnett, author of Day of Deceit: The Truth about FDR and Pearl Harbor, discusses how he found the McCollum memo – outlining the FDR administration’s eight step plan to provoke a Japanese attack – while searching through the National Archives; the radio “listening stations” that intercepted the Japanese fleet’s coded transmissions, earlier decrypted by the US; official orders from Naval command to stand aside and let the attack happen; and Stinnett’s new work-in-progress book, dealing in part with whether Admiral Kimmel’s was complicit or framed-up.
