    My best guess was that the Japanese Secret Police, the "Kempetai" (sp) had far flung agents across the Pacific with radios to report Allied military moves to their own intelligence services. Tokyo Rose could be frighteningly accurate at times, given what I've heard from US Pacific War Veterans.

        I haven't heard much about this but it wouldn't surprise me. The Japs lacked for gear after '42 but the stuff they already had, and the methods that they made do with were really phenomenal. People ignore just how formidable they really were until the very end of the war.

          That is very true. Look at Geraldo the Clown (Jerry Rivers/Geraldo Rivera) and his little map that he drew that practically gave away the whole plan to the Iraqis
