ABSTRACT
This article presents information about author Gerald W. Johnson's views on the implications of the creation of a nuclear bomb by the U.S. nuclear physicist Robert Oppenheimer. Oppenheimer made a bomb and it went off exactly as it was intended to do. Oppenheimer's reputation has been blasted. He has been denied access to any new information, which of course eliminates him from the front rank of nuclear physicists and he is being subjected to an investigation by a special commission. It is logically conceivable, of course, that Oppenheimer is wrong and that Communists are so far from being human that the slightest contact with them works corruption of the blood.
