Dear Mr. Card:

The Congress of the United States has recommended that President Bush act to restore the reputation of Admiral Husband E. Kimmel, who was unfairly held responsible by some for failing to prevent the attack on Pearl Harbor. You say the President has not acted on it because no “new or extraordinary” evidence has emerged. This is incorrect. Congress has found that there is new evidence showing that Admiral Kimmel had been denied critical intelligence information prior to the attack. The Admiral’s grandson, Thomas Kimmel, has produced at least a dozen new and significant items of evidence showing that Admiral Kimmel was slandered. Please review the case and ask President Bush to clear the name of Admiral Kimmel.
