The blame for the attack on Pearl Harbor cannot be laid solely on intelligence failures. The Pearl Harbor investigations affixed plenty of blame to faulty leadership, inflexible policies and procedures, and overall complacency after more than two decades of peace. These same investigations, however, called attention to the long overlooked concepts that intelligence work not only required expert personnel and continuity in time of peace, but that it also should be recognized as an essential function of command.

In the early morning hours of December 7, 1941, the Japanese Air Force bombed the US Naval fleet anchored in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. According to the multi-volume “History of the Counter Intelligence Corps” (CIC), “During the first minutes of the raid, agents of the Corps of Intelligence Police (CIP), scattered throughout the island of Oahu, raced to CIP headquarters in the Dillingham Building in downtown Honolulu. A hurried 10-minute conference and the agents were out on their first assignment of the war. Following a previously arranged plan, they dispersed in teams. Their mission was to apprehend all pro-Japanese sympathizers.” CIP agents began rounding up individuals on a “pickup list” compiled over the previous 10 years. Within days, more than 400 individuals had been arrested and confined at a makeshift detention camp.
The United States program to develop the atomic bomb, codenamed the Manhattan Project, began in August 1942. From the beginning, the need for security was paramount. By February 1943, a more comprehensive counterintelligence program was warranted and Counter Intelligence Corps (CIC) agents Capt. Horace K. Calvert and Capt. Robert J. McLeod were assigned to the Manhattan Engineer District (MED) to organize the Intelligence Section. More CIC personnel followed, with agents stationed at Oak Ridge, Tennessee; Chicago; St. Louis; Site Y (Los Alamos, New Mexico); and Berkeley, California.

It was only nine years after the devastation at Pearl Harbor in 1941 and no one believed that a
surprise attack could happen to U.S. forces ever again. But it did,” observed James R. Lint,
Founder and CEO of the Lint Center for National Security Studies. “The surprise attack by
communist forces from the North in Korea, sparking the Korean War, changed American
national security assessments, as it helped to crystalize the implications of strategic surprise in
geopolitics as well as to American security interests globally.”
In the military, we all have had the honor or joy or horror to stand 24-hour duty. This normally starts at the end of the work day. Yes, you also had the honor of working that day also. This can test the human body and the crutches we use to excel on this duty, which for most of us are some form of caffeine.
