How a Soviet mole in FDR's inner circle triggered Pearl Harbor and its dire relevancy to our conflict today.
On December 7, 1941, 353 Japanese aircraft delivered a shocking blow .. Nearly seven years later, Harry Dexter White, a senior official in the Roosevelt Administration, appeared to testify before the House Committee on Un-American Activities . Numerous witnesses, including Whittaker Chambers and Elizabeth Bentley, had implicated White in involvement with the Communist Party and the Soviet Union.
Harry Dexter White, a Harvard PhD and Assistant Treasury Secretary, had played a major role in creating the World Bank and the IMF. Shortly after his testimony, in which he denied all Communist activities, White suffered a heart attack. A few days later he died at his farm after supposedly overdosing on a heart medication that has also at times been used as a poison. Whether that overdose was an accident, a suicide or a murder remains unknown.
In Operation Snow: How a Soviet Mole in FDRs White House Triggered Pearl Harbor, John Koster draws a link between the event and the personality, alleging that Harry Dexter White was involved in orchestrating a conspiracy to draw the United States into a war.
There is little doubt that Harry Dexter White had acted as a Communist agent; that much has been confirmed both by American and Soviet intelligence figures. While the newspapers of the day cheered Whites testimony, his involvement and activities are clear and undeniable. And in Operation Snow, John Koster adds more information based on declassified documents.
Nor was White alone. The governments of the United States and the United Kingdom were rotten with traitors and fellow travelers. Names such as Alger Hiss and Kim Philby have become signposts on the black road of Communist betrayal.

why from 3 years ago about 70 years ago?
Awesome post, this has been going on for a looooong time. Progressives became infatuated with the Monarchical model with a different outfit so they could corral all us rubes into a manageable workforce to do their bidding...
Just as in the Russian Revolution, all the “high ideals” melt away as somebody has to run the thing...
Of course it is them as they are “smarter” (more devious actually)
And the leaders of the movement became the dictators of the future, and millions of Russians died playing out their “planning”
I believe in their fevered Ego saturated minds they feel like they will do it RIGHT this time
Uh No, not THIS American!!
FDR didn’t need “drawing” into the war. He was champing at the bits to do it.
Nobody over the age of 25 thinks that communism will work.
Mao had his harem and Fidel had his private island. They weren’t out picking turnips.
And our Democrats can’t be Moslems.
No liquor and pray five times a day?
Oh no no no no no.
Our Democrats like money.
Infiltrated? On January 20, 2009 enemies moved right in. Front door.
Obama was sent to "Fundamentally change America"....from a free capitalist society into a non-free Socialist/Communist one.
Furthermore, what was said between Putin and Obama during their 90+ minute meeting at the U.N. 9/28/15.......Probably something that Obama couldn't refuse....WWIII or Alaska....
The problem back then was that Communists were in fact infiltrating various key agencies of the government.
The problem today is that Communists now occupy the highest levels of government including the current POTUS.
>> why from 3 years ago about 70 years ago? << Some background information might be useful as to how we got to this mess today and where we are headed.
Harry Truman nominated White to be the first American executive director of the IMF .. Then, FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover presented a report to Truman that included information from 30 sources, including confessed spy Elizabeth Bentley saying that White was a ‘a valuable adjunct to an underground Soviet espionage organization.’
Here’s an interview with the author about his book:
One hour, the interview starts at a little over 13 minutes into the YouTube. There’s no video, just a screen shot.
Good listening on a day when it’s all about Biden.
AWESOME, this is what I wanted people to look at and open up their eyes and let go of old isms and “clubs” (GOP) which to the Elites is merely the subordinates climbing into convenient boxes or cages ...
We need to sweep out all of the Traitors and I see many here finding the links showing the real person not the “Persona” which is key to the Progressive cause...
Think Trudeau, like the Kennedy BS it tugs at a deep memory of being under a monarch who made all the decisions and you did what you were told. Ask just about any woman becoming a “princess” and the Gene is activated...
This is all aided and abetted by The Edutocracy whose primary mission in all of this is shaping the mind of the Masses to comply and accept their “brilliance” and your excited anticipation of The New World Order...
Order = peace, right??
Well then define Order...
and down the tubes they go...
Few people know the FDR State Dept tried to get Uranium to USSR thru “Lend-Lease” in ‘45
Oppie killed the deal.
Chapter 12: Richard Rhodes “Dark Sun, making of Hydrogen Bomb”
Truman nominated White to the IMF position after receiving seven messages about White from the FBI. In November 1953 Attorney General Herbert Brownell caused a sensation when he told an audience of businessmen at the Executive Club of Chicago that in 1946 Truman had named Assistant Secretary of the Treasury Harry Dexter White the executive director of the International Monetary Fund in spite of FBI warnings sent to the White House in December 1945 and February 1946 that White was a Communist spy. See The Morgenthau Plan: Soviet Influence on American Postwar Planning.
Thank you for the interview (which I will listen to later).
Thought his book was interesting.
