Spying for FDR
Listen up! When unexplainable things occur, many people get hair-brained ideas. You can call these ideas “conspiracy theories” if you want. After Amelia Earhart disappeared, the theories came out. One theory was that she was spying on the Japanese for President Roosevelt. These rumors were taken seriously enough that the U.S. Army Intelligence stated they weren’t true by 1949. Also, a friend of Earhart, Jackie Cochran, actually went through postwar Japanese files. She found nothing about Amelia Earhart’s disappearance.
