Newsweek article that reports on the defense arguments against the authority of the tribunal. Reports on how the defense argued that "Japan did not surrender unconditionally. The attack on Pearl Harbor was no more murderous than the dropping of the atom bomb. Planning and waging war are not crimes against the peace."
