    **** The only known spotting of the 6 Japanese carriers and supporting ships was like 5 days before by a Russian cargo ship far north in the Pacific and still West of the Dateline. She was headed to Vladivostok from San Francisco and she was left to proceed home.If it had been closer to Hawaii who knows The Fleet was under orders to sink without warning Any American,BritishmCanadian or Dutch ship they accidently encountered.

    **** As best as can be determined the Russian ship sent out no radio message on what she saw from a considerable distance in daylight and arrived in Vladivostok the day after the attack.

    It was just a coincidence the the flattops were out at sea. A very lucky coincidence.

    It was nothing more than getting caught with your pants down and higher up arrogant brass refusing to listen to any warnings. I've been in the military. I've see it with my own eyes. Most generals in my opinion are as worthless as a tit on a boar hog. Many have gotten troops killed due to their arrogance or incompetence.
    I disagree. As a sailor, I can tell you in no certain terms that 4 flatops do not leave a harbor without escort under normal cirumstances. The flattops in Pearl left without escourt that day and went traveled a safe distance.

    This is NOT normal naval procedure. Flattops do not go unguarded. Which tells me that the brass knew where the enemy was going to be and decided to send the carriers elsewhere.

    Historically, we were looking for a way to help the economy and WWII did exactly that. WWII made the US an industrial super power.

    Vader your wrong when it come's to the US Carriers that left Pearl Harbor and what type of escorts.

    The USS Enterprise left Pearl Harbor Nov. 28 1941 with 3 Heavy Cruiser's and 9 Destroyers this made up Task Force Eight under Command of Adm Halsey which head to the West to Patrol in and around Midway and Wake Islands they left Wake on and about Dec. 5 1941 arriving near Hawaii the evening of Dec. 6 1941.

    The USS Lexington left Pearl Harbor Dec. 4 1941 with 3 Heavy Cruiser and 5 Destroyers this made up Task Force 12 there orders were to relieve the USS Enterprise and to deliver a squadron of USMC F4F's. Task Force 12 arrive near Midway on the evening of Dec. 6 1941

    As for the other Pacific Based Carrier the USS Saratoga it was sitting on the West Coast picking up a new Carrier Air Wing.

    If you like we can discuss this more.
