Here is the history that the rest of us learned. If we knew where and when the attack was coming we would have turned it in to a trap, catching their carriers out at sea with their planes over a nearly empty pearl. It still would have provided the case for war and gave you a far better chance of winning<quoted text>
We did limit it. All four carriers were sent out the day before. Midway was month after Pearl Harbor pookie. You need to go by history not the movie. The message was sent but lay on a desk. Remember it was the weekend.
If you have something other than your own speculation put it out there...
But... 3rd time I'm asking
