Mike Honda currently serves as Democratic Congressman for the 15th Congressional District of California in the U.S. House of Representatives. He was born June 27, 1941, six months before the bombing of Pearl Harbor. In his interview he describes the early lives of his parents, both Nisei from California, and their meeting for the first time while being educated in Japan. In addition, Honda recalls the stories from his father about the Japanese American incarceration during World War II. His father would later serve in the Military Intelligence Service during the war. In the mid-1970’s, Honda would become one of the key individuals involved in the Redress Movement. This movement, which sought redress from the United States Government for civil rights violations against Japanese Americans during World War II, eventually led to the creation of The Commission of Wartime Relocation and incarceration of Civilians in 1980 and the signing of the Civil Liberties Act by President Reagan in 1988.

Iganzil（離間事）is a Korean traditional stratagem to sow discord and mistrust
between one’s rival and his superior in order to outwit the rival. This is exactly Koreans (and the U.S. politicians such as Mike Honda) are doing in the U.S. for the purpose of causing discord and mistrust between Japan and the U.S. for the benefit of North Korea and China.
