Posted by egar on Jan. 06 2004,10:57is it generally excepted that a midget sub did get in the harbor
and sink one of the battleships?
Posted by Ken Hackler on Jan. 06 2004,11:55It is not accepted by anyone other than a few people who now have too much at stake in that theory to back away from it in the face of fact.
A close examination of the facts prove that a second midget submarine never entered the harbor, and certainly never approached Battleship Row.
There is a lengthy discussion of this topic in the "Rumors" section if you are interested.

"A" midget did get into the harbor. It is the one sunk by Curtiss and Monaghan on the WEST side of Ford island; the opposite side of battleship row. All the other midgets and their torpedos have been accounted for, so like Ken said, it is a belief championed by people who are not willing to do the right thing and admit they are wrong.
Ken's the man when it comes to the midgets =)
