    December 7 is 'the date which will live in infamy.' But now Japan is hatching another, far greater plan to bring America to its knees . . . The Japanese surprise attack on Pearl Harbor was a resounding success-except for one detail: a second bombing mission, to destroy crucial oil storage facilities, was aborted that day.
