Battle of Midway finished 75 years ago tomorrow.

I did not realize it, but the Chicago Trib ran a story on June 7th detailing the EXACT makeup of the Japanese Fleet - something known to the Code Breakers and shared at the Top Secret Level with our operating forces at that time.

"The leak hinted that the United States had cracked a Japanese communications code, sparking fury in the Navy and the administration of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, and starting an “espionage” probe by the FBI.  It also led to a sensitive grand jury investigation for which testimony would be sealed for more than seven decades."

A news agency thru the FOIA recently succeeded in having the info released!
