This question is up for debate just like the question of whether George W. Bush knew about 9/11 before it happened. Conspiracy theorists would answer yes, but there is no real evidence to support it. A good history professor I once had said that Roosevelt could not possibly know the attack plan, but knew the Japanese would retaliate somehow because of the trade embargo. Knowing exactly how was a suprise, the president couldn't possibly know ahead of time.
