> >>Check Stone's book and/or NYT then as to his visit!
>He was serving at the time as a Special Adviser to State Dept. <<
Special Advisor to the State Department is not part of the administration.
And, he was negotiating the Peace Treaty with Japan at that time so had
returned to the US a week before to consult with Dean Acheson and was in
the states when the war began.
One thing to remember: Much of the history written back then is highly
suspect since most of the information was classified, thus when Stone or
others with a political agenda said this or that was fact, there was no way
to challenge their claims. They also used "circular confirmation." That
is a story would be planted in some newspaper somewhere, then referred to
by another newspaper, and maybe picked up worldwide. This gave two or more
sources for the same inaccurate story so was used to "confirm" a false
item. However, over the past 50 years, almost everything is now public
record and open to historians. That is why so many histories of that day
have been proved inaccurate, Stone's and Cumming's included.
