Read FDR's Famous 'Day of Infamy' Speech: President Roosevelt delivers the "Day of Infamy" speech to a joint session of Congress on December 8, 1941. Behind him are Vice President Henry Wallace (left) and Speaker of the House Sam Rayburn. To the right, in uniform, is Roosevelt's son James.
On a quiet afternoon in December 1941, the President was in his study working on his stamp album. The telephone rang, and the White House operator put through the call. FDR learned that the Japanese had attacked Pearl Harbor just before 8 a.m. Hawaii time. Prologue takes you through the various drafts of FDR’s so-called “Day of Infamy” speech, with images of pages with his hand-written changes in wording and updates on Japanese attacks on other U.S. installations in the Pacific.
I think that we all knew that this was happening, but it was kept under the rug. It has now been outed, either against this administration's will, or intentionally as a beta test to see how far they can go and how much the populace will tolerate. This is a game, but the stakes are high. How much is too much? Only the people can decide that, peacefully or otherwise. God bless America.
