    That's the conclusion I have come to; he was commander & chief after all.
    He took actions that would likely led to war with Japan, despite the reality
    that our military was not ready. Admiral Richardson, who warned about
    the vunerablity of PH was removed from command, for doing so.

    I understand others were also at fault. The Brits used radar to help win the
    BoB, in 1940. So, it was clear, radar was effective and a working, well
    staffed radar station, with the abilty to warn the air fields and harbor,
    should have been in place. All communications should have been synchronized,
    between Army & Navy. These important defensive measures, should have been
    implemented by Short & Kimmel.

    Lets just agree that Hindsight is a perfect science almost 68 years after the event.
    As it is in all after the battle scenarios.
