This four page Federal Broadcasting Intelligence Service report titled "Japanese
Broadcasts To American Servicemen" accurately summarizes the Tokyo Rose
phenomenon. The report is undated, but given its speculations on who Tokyo Rose
might be, it was almost certainly written during the war.
How widely FBIS circulated the report is uncertain. However, we know the Department
of Justice communicated extensively with FBIS during the pre-trial phase. This report
proves that the U.S. government's radio propaganda experts knew that Tokyo Rose
was a myth and presumably informed DoJ before it prosecuted Iva Toguri for treason.
For more information on FBIS and this report, see the 2014 Revised TR/AP, pp. 2, 5, 7,
274, 337-338, and 345n85,86.
