Yes, Hiroshima Quotes. Eisenhower, gives to different versions of his meeting with Stimson. Two versions that contradict each other. One must be a lie. Which book to believe? We can also use MacArthur to show that it is unlikely that Eisenhower was told about the Top Secret Atomic Bomb while MacArthur was not. So there is ample reason to not use Eisenhower if one is trying to make the case, that the Atomic bomb was not needed. You can not use a liar, period. Also the page number for the quote is wrong? MacArthur, quoted from William Manchester's biography of MacArthur. Manchester? A proven liar, who lied about valor on Okinawa. Stolen Valor, that is what Manchester is guilty of, at the least. An author who is best left to collect dust, simply for lying about his own military record. And boy did he lie. What a prick! Hoover? I do see a pattern, I am not about to go out and by a Hoover book to make a point about this terrible list of errors and proven liars. Leahy, that appears correct although I will have to cross reference Leahy to Stimson/Truman and whoever else may be important. The rest, I may address at my leisure. There is much written by those who were part of the decision. Truman and Stimson, for the most part. The Interim Committee. And more. But without addressing everything, there is a disturbing pattern of cherry picking sources, making errors while sourcing the quotes, even taking the quotes out of context. Books are a better source than the cherry picked scholarly papers scattered across the internet. Using google as a source is a terrible way to debate history.
