Excerpt from Pearl Harbor Attack, Vol. 4: Hearings Before the Joint Committee on the Investigation of the Pearl Harbor Attack, Congress of the United States, Seventy-Ninth Congress, First Session

The joint committee met, pursuant to adjournment, at 10 a. m., in the Caucus Room (room 318). Senate Office Building, Senator Alben W. Barkley (chairman) presiding.

Present: Senators Barkley (chairman), George, Lucas, Ferguson and Representatives Cooper (vice chairman), Clark, Murphy, Gearhart and Keefe.

Also present: William D. Mitchell, general counsel; Gerhard A. Gesell, Jule M. Hannaford, and John E. Masten, of counsel, for the joint committee.

[4196] The Chairman. The committee will come to order.

Mr. Mitchell. Air. Chairman, before General Gerow's examination continues I have n statement to present, to the committee about the situation of the legal staff, if I may do it.

The Chairman. Yes; the chair will recognize counsel for that purpose.

Mr. Mitchell. Air. Chairman, the point we have reached in the hearings makes it evident that a complete replacement of the committee's legal stair is necessary.

The committee began its hearings November 15 and has been sitting regularly for a month, including all Saturdays but one. During that period only S witnesses have been completely examined and we estimate that as the field of inquiry by committee members has widened out and new witnesses have been added to the list., there remain at least Of) witnesses to be examined. Many of these witnesses are quite as crucial as those who have testified. At the rate of progress (luring the past month, it seems certain that several more months of hearings will lie required.

When I undertook to serve the committee as chief counsel, I believed that my services would not be needed beyond early January. This resulted from several factors:

I had and still have a definite conviction that the real purpose of this committee was to present facts which [4197] would permit a final answer to this basic question: Who was responsible for the failure of our forces at Hawaii to he on the alert and for the admitted failure to use to the best advantage such defense facilities as were available at Pearl Harbor?

The joint resolution of the Congress under which the committee is acting requires a final report of the committee to he made not later than January 3, 1946. I assumed that time limit meant what it said.
