A tanker sunk by a Japanese submarine 55 years ago has been located, and most of its cargo of 4.1 million gallons of crude oil appears to be intact, the government reported Friday. The 440-foot tanker Montebello was sunk Dec. 23, 1941, just 16 days after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. It was en route from Port San Luis near Pismo Beach, where it had been loaded with 75,346 barrels of crude, to Vancouver, British Columbia.

The Senate voted Tuesday to exonerate two American military commanders accused of dereliction of duty in the bombing of Pearl Harbor. In a 52-47 vote, the Senate approved an effort by Sen. William V. Roth Jr. (R-Del.) to restore the reputations of Adm. Husband Kimmel and Gen. Walter Short, the two senior commanders of U.S. military forces in the Pacific at the time of the Dec. 7, 1941, attack. The new debate on an old military controversy came as the Senate worked on a $288.

To the relief of Japanese-Americans, Pearl Harbor Day passed without incident despite fears that the intense focus on the 50th anniversary of the Japanese attack could trigger hate crimes or other animosities toward Asians in America. "Our office was quiet yesterday, which was really comforting," Jimmy Tokeshi, head of the Japanese American Citizens League in Los Angeles, said Sunday.

Japan's foreign minister said Sunday that he was "deeply moved" by President Bush's speech on the 50th anniversary of his nation's attack on Pearl Harbor, and he expressed remorse for Japan's wartime actions. But like other top government officials, Michio Watanabe stopped short of apologizing for Japan's aggression. On Friday, conservatives in the governing Liberal Democratic Party scrapped plans for a parliamentary statement, saying there was no need to apologize.

The reasons are as compelling as the paycheck drawn on a Tokyo bank, as obvious as the miso soup breakfast special at the hotel coffee shop, as dramatic as the U.S. senator with the name Inouye: Commemorating Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor is a complicated affair for Hawaii. Here, 50 years later, in what became the 50th state, oil from the great fight still seeps from the sunken battleship Arizona. Yet bonds with Japan are stronger and more vital here than anywhere else in America.

Memories of "a date that will live in infamy," unblemished and unforgettable, filled the Navy auditorium where 342 old soldiers, Marines and sailors were honored Saturday with a medal commemorating the upcoming 50th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor. The simple ceremony was emotional and marked with healthy doses of pride and patriotism. Dozens of old warriors--some infirm and others showing signs of the wounds they suffered Dec.

The Japanese navy blamed the chief weapons officer aboard a destroyer for the shooting down of a U.S. warplane during naval maneuvers in the mid-Pacific this month, ruling out mechanical or systems problems. Rear Adm. Kataru Hasegawa, chief inspecting officer for the Maritime Self-Defense Force, said the Japanese weapons officer, a lieutenant commander, incorrectly assumed that the A-6E Intruder towing a target had passed by when he ordered the attack to commence June 4.

In the early-morning hours on Dec. 7, 1941, waves of Japanese planes, undetected by American radar, dive-bombed the airfields and warships of the U.S. base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. More than 2,400 American servicemen died, nearly half of them trapped aboard the battleship Arizona. It was the worst disaster in American naval history, piercing Americans' veil of invulnerability and mobilizing the country into World War II. Fifty years later, Pearl Harbor is a politically sensitive subject.
