Example text

This was an oddly personal, sentimental way to express what Richardson should have already known, that his comment to his commander-in-chief that day had been not just inappropriate but grossly insubordinate. 127 Thereafter excluded from power, Richardson at least had the consolation of being a prophet, 20 THE PACIFIC BACKGROUND a whistle-blower, and a martyr. He no doubt endorsed the comment in 1946 by Rep. Frank B. Keefe (R-WI), a member of the congressional committee investigating Pearl Harbor, who advised that “[t]he American public in 1941 was deluded about the fighting strength of our Fleet .

100 The Philippines Theodore Roosevelt, despite his initial enthusiasm, eventually grasped that the Philippines had been a mistake, “our heel of Achilles . . ” It remained an imperial lossleader, with US investment by the 1930s totaling a mere $200 million, as against a total military cost of $900 million. Isolationists argued that the best thing was to cut the losses, the Tydings-McDuffie Act of 1934 granting the Philippines independence by 1946. To facilitate the transition to military independence, President Manuel Luis Quezon y Molina asked his friend Douglas MacArthur, son of the Philippines’ military governor in the uneasy years following acquisition, to train an indigenous force.

Richardson’s career, meanwhile, cratered. 126 Admitting in a memoir that one gave less than the whole truth under oath in a congressional hearing on a matter of crucial national importance, tends to undercut the credibility both of the original testimony and of the new, unsworn addendum. Since Richardson did not include this alleged part of the luncheon conversation in his sworn testimony, Leahy was not asked to affirm or deny that it was said. Nevertheless, there is good circumstantial evidence that Richardson did say this to Roosevelt: several months after the lunch, Richardson was relieved of command.
