Project 22Research Plan Research Question: How did policy makers determine what level of secrecy and covert intelligence was needed to protect our country during the development of the Atomic bomb? How did the secrecy surrounding the development of the Atomic bomb become widely accepted?Secondary Sources: Miles, R. E., Jr. (1985). Hiroshima: The strange myth of half a million American lives saved. International Security, 10(2), 121–140. Retrieved from-org.ezproxy.snhu.edu/stable/2538830Morton, L. (1957). The decision to use the atomic bomb. Foreign Affairs, 35(2), 334–353. Retrieved from Historical Context:Miles seems to be a bit critical of Truman and his reason for making his claim a decade after the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. This article speaks about several different interactions and international relationships. It describes in detail some of the negotiations that were going on and decisions that were made between world leaders at the time. Morton is very knowledgeable about the subject and has few holes in his argument however he isbiased against the dropping of the bomb as he thinks other options would have been more effective resulting in less loss of life. I do believe that these bias stems from ample research and prior knowledge surrounding the subject.
