It looks like there was infamy on both sides on December 7, 1941:
The Pearl Harbor false flag operation of December 7th, 1941 which provided the excuse for the US to enter World War 2 is about to be celebrated once again. Today (December 7th, 2016) is the Pearl Harbor 75th Anniversary event. The horrific event was yet another in a long long line of false flag operations that have been carried out by unscrupulous criminals (our misleaders) over the years. Just as with the 9/11 false flag attack, around 3000 American lives were sacrificed so that the US Government had the pretext they needed to go to war. As the 75th anniversary approaches, it is appropriate to cast our gaze back in time and set the record straight on the Pearl Harbor false flag op in the hope that this information will spread far and wide, and prevent future leaders from using this hackneyed tactic to trick people into submission and achieve their dark political and geopolitical goals.
To begin with, the Pearl Harbor attack is not a false flag op in the sense that the US attacked its own ships and planes. It is a false flag in the sense that, at the very least, Roosevelt let it happen; and, as the evidence will show, he made it happen. Most of the US Pacific fleet of planes and ships were intentionally left there as sitting ducks with no air protection, an easy target for the Japanese torpedo planes. The Japanese managed to destroy nearly 20 American naval vessels, including 8 massive battleships and over 300 airplanes.

A related fact tips the scales for me, and it concerns USS Indianapolis (the ship mentioned in the movie "Jaws"):
Officially, on the day the Japanese struck Pearl Harbor, December 7th, 1941, Indianapolis was conveniently out of her home port, Pearl Harbor, making a simulated bombardment of Johnson Island off to the West. Captain E.W. Hanson, USN was then in command. It is noteworthy to mention here that all of the carriers assigned to Pearl were also conveniently out of Pearl as well. Indianapolis immediately joined Task Force 12 to search for the attacking Japanese carrier force. Returning to Pearl Harbor Indianapolis was assigned to Task Force 11 for operations against the enemy.
THE SURPRISING ORDER TO GET UNDERWAY- 5 December 1941
What follows is the account of Daniel E. Brady of the V (Aviation) Division, aboard Indianapolis. It is recounted here for the historical record. Readers may draw their own conclusions.
"On December 5, 1941, I was a Seaman Second Class on board the heavy cruiser USS INDIANAPOLIS CA-35. On that day, we were docked at the mine dock in Pearl Harbor. This was next to the submarine base, and across from "Battleship Row".
It was Friday afternoon, and as normal routine on weekends in port, all our married men and liberty sections were ashore, leaving approximately one third of the crew on board with the duty. Then, a surprising word was passed: The ship would get underway in one hour.
'Impossible!', we commented among ourselves. Most of our crew were ashore and we could never recall them in time on such short notice. Soon, fifty marines in full battle gear came aboard, followed by forty or so civilian shipyard workers with their tool boxes. Next came truck loads of food and vegetables, which were dumped unceremoniously on the bleached, white, teak wood Quarter Deck!
The Quarter Deck was exclusively reserved for Admirals, Captains,and ceremonial occasions. Why, we didn't even walk across it with our shoes on! This was blasphemy! What was going on?
Just as the word was given, we got underway in one hour's time without our crew and steamed out of Pearl Harbor. We traveled Friday night and Saturday with no word as to our destination, Sunday morning at about seven thirty we anchored at Johnson Island, a small island about 700 miles South West of Hawaii. Hastily, we began unloading the marines, civilians and stores. Then the word was passed - "The Japs are bombing Pearl! This is no drill. Prepare the ship for battle action!"
Everything that could burn was thrown overboard. Lumber, paint, small boats, even President Roosevelt's great, ornate, bedroom suite he used when aboard the "Indy".
We then steamed back to Hawaiian waters and joined the old carrier, Lexington. After seven days and three attempts to enter Pearl, (Jap submarines were trying to sink the "Lex." in the entrance), we finally made it, and could not believe what havoc had been wrought. We picked up our crew and survivors from the battleship Nevada and departed the following morning. To this very day, you cannot convince me that somebody didn't know this attack would take place.
Consider this: We were President Roosevelt's favorite ship, and were also the flagship of Admiral Wilson Brown, head of Scouting Force, whose job it was to scout out and detect the enemy. And we were conveniently out of port at the time of the attack. Fate acts in funny ways at times. Being in the aviation unit, (Airdales), we usually disembarked our airplanes and their crews to Ford Island when we were in Pearl. This time (5 December, 1941) our aircraft were kept aboard. Had they been at Ford Island they would have been destroyed!

Not mentioned above, but equally significant, is the fact that Indianapolis had been the flagship of the naval flotilla which attended the 50th anniversary celebration of the dedication of the Statue of Liberty. That made her a very symbolic ship, and someone (perhaps FDR himself) apparently wanted to spare her from the inferno of the Pearl Harbor attack.
FDR must have known the attack was coming. He was reading the raw intercepts of communications from the Japanese fleet as it made its way to Hawaii. In spite of our lies to the contrary, the US had indeed broken the Japanese naval code. Even if we had not, remote listening stations were capable of tracking the Jap fleet and triangulating their position all the way from Japan to Hawaii.
Those who call 9/11 a "new Pearl Harbor" are spot on. In both cases, the US government knew the attack was coming, but let it happen to serve some greater purpose. Both days shall live forever "in infamy", but not for the reasons normally given.
