From Chicago, to Tennessee, to Hanford, Washington to the University of California, Berkeley to New Mexico, the government kept a tight lid on the Manhattan Project. Over 120,000 people worked on this huge project, yet the government managed to keep a lid on the entire project.
Not even Vice-President Truman knew about it and as they say, he was only a 'heartbeat' away from the presidency.
Truman had been vice president for only 82 days when President Roosevelt died on April 12, 1945. He had rarely discussed world affairs or domestic politics with Roosevelt and was uninformed about major initiatives relating to the war and the top secret Manhattan Project, which was about to test the world's first atomic bomb.When they did test the first device at the White Sands range in New Mexico, the fireball lit up the early morning sky so much that people 200 miles away saw the flash.
Truman, who had not known of it beforehand, was briefed on the ultra secret Manhattan Project by Secretary of War Henry L. Stimson on the day Roosevelt died, following his first Cabinet meeting as President.
Secrecy was paramount. Keeping 120,000 people quiet would be impossible; therefore only a small privileged cadre of inner scientists and officials knew about the atomic bomb's development. In fact, Vice-President Truman had never heard of the Manhattan Project until he became President Truman.
A blinding flash visible for 200 miles lit up the morning sky. A mushroom cloud reached 40,000 feet, blowing out windows of civilian homes up to 100 miles away. When the cloud returned to earth it created a half-mile wide crater metamorphosing sand into glass. A bogus cover-up story was quickly released, explaining that a huge ammunition dump had just exploded in the desert. Soon word reached President Truman in Potsdam, Germany that the project was successful.
The Alamogordo Air Base issued a 50-word press release in response to what it described as "several inquiries" that had been received concerning an explosion. The release explained that "a remotely located ammunition's magazine containing a considerable amount of high explosives and pyrotechnics exploded," but that "there was no loss of life or limb to anyone." A newspaper article published the same day stated that "the blast was seen and felt throughout an area extending from El Paso to Silver City, Gallup, Socorro, and Albuquerque." The actual cause was not publicly acknowledged until after the August 6 bombing of Hiroshima.Headlines in the July 16, 1945, edition of the El Paso Herald Post read “Army Ammunition Explosion Rocks Southwest Area.” The El Paso Times reported the “ammunition explosion” on July 17, 1945, on page three, in a short, ten-line article.
The Manhattan Project's official journalist, William L. Laurence, had put multiple press releases on file with his office at The New York Times to be released in case of an emergency, ranging from an account of a successful test (the one which was used) to more macabre scenarios explaining why all of the scientists had perished in a single freak accident.
Three weeks later, on August 8, 1945, the El Paso Herald Post headlines reported “Atomic Bomb Dropped on Japs,” with the subtitle revealing the earlier explosion had really been the first test of the atomic bomb. By then, El Pasoans had discovered that the ammunition dump story was a cover up by the army and the government to keep the atomic bomb project secret.
The observers set up betting pools on the results of the test. Predictions ranged from zero (a complete dud) to 45 kilotons of TNT, to destruction of the state of New Mexico, to ignition of the atmosphere and incineration of the entire planet.So the next time someone laughs about anyone being able to keep the FALSE FLAG/INSIDE JOB of 9/11 a secret, you'll know they're part of the cover-up; or getting paid to lie or have become so dumbed down by the Zionist MSM, especially FOX News that they no longer have the ability to think and reason things out.
News reports quoted a forest ranger 150 miles west of the site as saying he saw "a flash of fire followed by an explosion and black smoke." A New Mexican 150 miles north said, "The explosion lighted up the sky like the sun." Other reports remarked that windows were rattled and the sound of the explosion could be heard up to 200 miles away.
