NR 364 [President Truman Tells the World Of Hiroshima]

President Truman aboard ship sits at table w/ microphone. A short time ago an American plane dropped one bomb on Hiroshima and destroyed its usefulness to the enemy. That bomb has more power than 20,000 tons of TNT. The Japanese began the war from the air at Pearl Harbor; they have been repaid many fold. And the end is not yet. With this bomb we have now added a new & revolutionary increase in destruction to supplement the growing power of our armed forces. In their present form these bombs are now in production

and even more powerful forms are in development.

04:28:39 It is an atomic bomb. It is the harnessing of the basic power of the Universe. The force from which the sun draws its power has been loosed against those who brought war to the Far East.

04:28:57 CU. We are now prepared to destroy more rapidly & completely every productive enterprise the Japanese have in any city; we shall destroy their docks, their factories & their communications. Let there be no mistake we shall completely destroy Japan s power to make war. It was to spare the Japanese people from utter destruction that the ultimately of July 26th was issued at Potsdam. Their leaders promptly rejected that ultimatum. If they do not now accept our terms they may expect a rain of ruin from the air, the like of which has never been seen on this earth. Behind this air attack will follow sea & land forces in such numbers & power as they have not yet seen; & w/ the fighting skill of which they are already well aware.

04:29:04 MS chuckles, then recovers. We have spent more than two billion dollars on the greatest scientific gamble in history, and we have won. But the greatest marvel is not the size of the enterprise, its secrecy or its cost; but the achievement of scientific brains in making it work. And hardly less marvelous has been the capacity of industry to design, & of labor to operate, the machines & methods to do things never done before. both science & industry worked together under the direction of the United States Army which achieved a unique success in an amazingly short time. It is doubtful if such an other combination could be got together in the world. What has been done is the greatest achievement of organized science in history.

NR 364 [President Truman Tells the World Of Hiroshima]

President Truman aboard ship sits at table w/ microphone. A short time ago an American plane dropped one bomb on Hiroshima and destroyed its usefulness to the enemy. That bomb has more power than 20,000 tons of TNT. The Japanese began the war from the air at Pearl Harbor; they have been repaid many fold. And the end is not yet. With this bomb we have now added a new & revolutionary increase in destruction to supplement the growing power of our armed forces. In their present form these bombs are now in production

and even more powerful forms are in development.

11:26:50 It is an atomic bomb. It is the harnessing of the basic power of the Universe. The force from which the sun draws its power has been loosed against those who brought war to the Far East.

General Short Testifies At Pearl Harbor Inquiry

(Army Commander in Hawaii at time of attack) re scapegoating by War Dept

SOF: I do not feel that I was treated fairly or with justice by the War Department. I was singled out as an example, as a scapegoat in the disaster. I am sure that an honest confession by the War Department general staff of their failure to anticipate the surprise raid would have been understood by the public in the long run, and even at the time. Instead they passed the buck and I have kept my silence until the opportunity of this public forum was presented to me.
