This message told the Japanese Embassy to break off all diplomatic relations with the USA early on the morning of Sunday, December 7th, 1941. He briefed General George Marshall on the immediate implications of this message. By the time the warnings of this message reached Hawaii, the Pearl Harbor attack was already in progress.
