The Great Hiroshima Cover-Up — And the Nuclear Fallout for All of Us Today

Posted by Trish Riley, November 26, 2009

More misery of war…. let’s just not do this anymore.

Wouldn’t it be nice if Mr. Obama brought home all of our soldiers as a Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa/Whatever gift to our nation and the world? I’m glad he’s out there trying to make peace with the world. There are so many better ways to live our lives than in hate…..

“I always had the sense,” McGovern told me, “that people in the Atomic Energy Commission were sorry we had dropped the bomb. The Air Force — it was also sorry. I was told by people in the Pentagon that they didn’t want those [film] images out because they showed effects on man, woman and child….They didn’t want the general public to know what their weapons had done — at a time they were planning on more bomb tests. We didn’t want the material out because…we were sorry for our sins.”
