This is coolbert:
From the Chicago Tribune of today.
Those banner headlines as was the case on 7 June 1942. Immediately in the aftermath of the Battle of Midway.
"From June 4 to 7, 1942 the U.S. Navy ambushed and the devastated a Japanese strike force near Midway Island. . . . On June 7, six months to the day after Pearl Harbor, a front-page report in the Chicago Tribune hinted at the astonishing secret that enabled the American victory"
"The scoop said that the U.S. had known when the Japanese convoy would sail, where, with what assets . . . Savvy readers knew that the intricate details had to mean Washington had cracked Japan's secret naval code"
From the Tribune article and the headlines:
"Breaking the code on A Chicago mystery from World War II"
"Historians and press advocates ask federal judges here to breach a grand jury's secrecy"
"JAP FLEET SMASHED BY U.S. 2 CARRIERS SUNK AT MIDWAY"
"NAVY HAD WORD OF JAP PLAN TO STRIKE AT SEA"
"Knew Dutch Harbor Was a Feint."
"13 TO 15 NIPPON SHIPS HIT; PACIFIC BATTLE RAGES ON"
During a time of declared war such a deliberation treasonous at best, a secret most tightly held [the navy having the ability to read the encrypted and highly sensitive JN-25 naval code] the betrayal of which seen as a factor that could make moot for American military planners a war winning measure.
And for the rest of the story: NOT IN THE SEVENTY-TWO YEARS THAT HAS PASSED THE DELIBERATIONS OF THE FEDERAL GRAND JURY INVESTIGATING THE MATTER OF POSSIBLE TREASON A SEALED RECORD THE CONTENTS OF WHICH HAVE NEVER BEEN REVEALED.
The sealed records will be unsealed? After seventy-two years perhaps this is a good idea. Colonel McCormick the owner of the Tribune was a noted and intense opponent of Franklin Roosevelt and would do anything in his power to discredit the President, apparently even if it meant disclosing secrets that had the possible of NEGATING a "war winning measure"!!
