A friend of mine wrote the following about all this:

"Good drama and true facts are only occasional bedfellows"

And sadly we have reached a point in our society where we have to make a distinction between "true facts" and the other kind.

How long does it take the "History" Channel to admit it was wrong to make, let alone broadcast the programme?

How long does it take for hell to freeze over?

This environmental assessment has some information on piers at Jaluit.
Page A-21 has a map of what looks like the dock that exists today.
Page A-29 has a map that shows the "Sydney pier" and the "Jabor Dock".
A-30 has a map that indicates the "rubble from Japanese pier"

We're holding the History Channel's feet to the fire.  We just put this up on the TIGHAR homepage:

The History Channel promised to have their team of investigators “explore the latest developments about Amelia Earhart” – namely, that the photo at the center of their highly-hyped documentary “Amelia Earhart – The Lost Evidence” proved to be from a book published two years before Earhart disappeared. It has now been nearly three months.

Crickets.

No matter which theory of Amelia's fate you favor, fake history hurts everyone.

We ask you to join us in petitioning Paul Buccieri, President of A&E Networks, to broadcast an apology for misleading millions of viewers. To view and sign the petition go to Change.org.

Heck, they already have a series of postage stamps. Why not a statue?

TIGHAR funded the building of a memorial on Jaluit to the memory of a hundred Marshallese mistakenly killed in a U.S. bombing raid. Maybe we should have built a memorial to Amelia on the dock.

Would you have a current photo of the memorial, and does it need anything in way of repair or maintenance, so that we may contribute if need be?

 Good grief!

Interesting how newly captured prisoners could arrange all these events undetected, with hopes that this coded distress signal would be viewed by any would be rescuers in time.

Three things happened after I followed that link.

1. I spit coffee all over my monitor.
2. I checked the calendar to see if it was April 1st
3. I double checked the webpage to make sure I had not been re-routed to The Onion

 ;)

That is just one of the logic problems. There are too many to list and too many claims without evidence. I thought it was a joke post too but googled the author of the "text".
He has a history ridiculous conspiracy claims including "pizzagate" and others, like where Israelis blew up the space shuttle Columbia.

Good grief!

This kind of thing is stock-in-trade for conspiracy buffs.   This cartoon is from 1993.

No current photo but this is what it looked like when it was completed in 2008. That's TIGHAR's Van Hunn who was in charge of the project being thanked by the mayor of Jaluit.  The inscription, in Marshallese and English, reads:

KOBA MARON
(Coming Together)

Buried here are the remains of nearly one hundred Marhallese men, women, and children who were joined together in death by a tragedy of war on February 1, 1942.
