Secretary of the Navy Knox was sent to Pearl Harbor to survey the damage and make a report to the President. He made two reports, one public and the other Top Secret. The public report minimized the damage so as to not give valuable information to the enemy. The secret report was much more detailed and gives a view of the attack from a very fresh perspective. Sec. Knox's report caused President Roosevelt to order the Roberts Commission to further investigate the attack.
Here we have three reports, the secret report, Secretary Knox's public statement, and a "one year ago today" report looking at the attack.
