On August 12, 1941, J. Edgar Hoover Was Personally Warned About The Coming Attack On Pearl Harbor

Last night there was a fascinating program on the Military Channel. It was about a non-forgotten double agent from World War II named Ducan Popov. On August 12, 1941, he had a meeting with then FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover. He warned Hoover about the coming Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Hoover told the man to stop telling him how to do his job. A heated argument ensued, Papov stormed out of Hoover’s office.. Hoover took no action on the warning. Here is a fascinating link confirming this:
