Pearl Harbor - 65 Years Ago Today

Tom Bevan has a Pearl Harbor roundup worth reading.

It's ironic that the Iraq Study Group's report came out one day before the anniversary of The Day That Will Live In Infamy.

I wonder if the photo at left (of the Arizona going down) was seen often during World War II, or if the news media refrained from showing it, for fear of inciting anger against the attackers?

Finally, here's a story of heroism from that day in 1941 that most people don't know, about Mervyn Sharp Bennion, the captain of the USS West Virginia.
