Writing about Amelia Earhart for a conspiracy theory website is just adding white noise to a sea of white noise. Everybody knows the story and the conspiracy theories surrounding her and her infinite flight that may or may not have ended in some sort of tragedy. One of the most popular theories is that she flew through a Bermuda Triangle like area and entered either a different time or dimensions. The theory most skeptics believe is that she simple ran out of fuel and she crashed into the ocean, end of story. But that theory isn’t nearly as much fun as all the others.
Another theory that is floating around out there in the ‘verse about one of America’s sweethearts is that she was a spy for the government. Her charted route would have taken her right over enemy territory and if is believed that her plane may have been outfitted with special reconnaissance equipment. Or she may have been instructed to make an emergency landing on Marshall Islands which are just off the Japanese coast so that the Navy would then have to come to her rescue and would then have access to Japanese waters and would be able to do reconnaissance on them. One theory that doesn’t seem to floating around out there is that Amelia Earhart was a spy but not for us. What if our darling Amelia was a spy for the Japanese? Why would she work for them? Why not? Apparently there is an FBI file that contains the record of an interview with a soldier who was stationed in the Philippines before the attack on Pearl Harbor. The soldier states that he was being entertained in a hotel by some Japanese acquaintances but that the “walls were very thin and he overheard a conversation in English between two Japanese people to the effect that Amelia Earhart was still alive and being detained at a hotel in Tokyo”. Why a hotel? Why not a jail or government
building? Generally, if you are going to detain someone a hotel is not the first place you consider putting them especially if your intentions are of a more malicious nature. However, if the person isn’t technically a prisoner then a hotel wouldn’t be such a strange location. It may have even been her knowledge that helped them in their attack on Pearl Harbor. After World War II Japan began to view women differently and were granted more freedoms and equal rights. Could this also have been the work of Amelia Earhart?
