After 70 years, why do we still call the attack on Pearl Harbor a sneak attack?


It was a time of war and we knew that the entire Japanese navy was sitting 100 miles west of Pearl Harbor. Admiral Nimitz warned of an attack but Washington, with their infinite wisdom said the Japanese wouldn't dare attack. What did they think was going to happen, the Japanese navy was coming for tea.
