Involvement in Pearl Harbor[edit]

I'm editing out the comment that this is one of the things that he is best remembered for. Few of those who know his name are aware of his wild claims (or of his later history) and these are described later in the article. Critic-at-Arms (talk) 19:36, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

Embellishments and Falsehoods[edit]

Question: is there a source for the statements about his embellishments and falsehoods? Thanks. Elliott bay (talk) 23:40, 12 May 2008 (UTC)

Answer: Yes, check the references. The deNevers book gives the "Who's Who" quotes and Bendetsen's biography, and the Truman Library interview has his statements about December 7th. The Truman Library, informed about the falsehoods, has declined to put a disclaimer on the interview. Critic-at-Arms (talk) 21:27, 27 July 2008 (UTC)
