On December 7th, 1941, before many Americans were even awake, the Japanese Navy struck the United States naval base at Pearl Harbor

Um...they attacked at 0730 hours, Honolulu time. UTC-10 hours is six hours behind Washington DC time, or 1:30 pm on Sunday afternoon. Granted most people sleep in on Sunday, but past noon? I don't think so.
