Aloha All,
One of the suggestions put forth by revisionists, without evidence, is "FDR knew because the US military plotted the radio intercepts of the Japanese attack fleet as they progressed across the Pacific"...

One of the responders to this site is Phil Jacobsen. Lieutenant Commander Jacobsen is a researcher, columnist, and indexer for the U.S. Naval Cryptologic Veterans Association's journal, The Cryptolog. He enlisted in the Navy in June 1941 and retired after more than 28 years of service, 27 of those years serving with the Naval Security Group or its predecessor organizations. In World War II, he served as an intercept and direction finder operator as well as an analyst on Japanese naval and naval air communications.  

Phil has just addressed this RDF topic in a beautiful rebuttal in the December 2003 issue of Naval History magazine and the article is on line at: US Naval Institute. You need to register to access the article, but registration is free.

"Pearl Harbor: Who Deceived Whom?" By Lieutenant Commander Philip H. Jacobsen, U.S. Navy (Retired)

Naval History, December 2003

Unfortunately it appears that the online edition is only to October, we still have a wait a bit! :(

I'll post a direct link for registered members when it goes online.

Ah-HAH!
I, like an idiot, clicked on the Proceedings link; not the Naval History.
The direct link for those who've registered is here
