"The Senate special committee on atomic energy had heard both pros and cons on atomic energy control. Last week it heard another kind of testimony - a terrifying eyewitness account by Dr. Philip Morrison, nuclear physicist of the Los Alamos atomic bomb laboratory, [who] spoke of the effects on Hiroshima."
"The atomic bomb is a weapon of saturation. It destroys so quickly and so completely such a large area that defense is hopeless. Leadership and organization are gone. Key personnel are killed. With the fire stations wrecked and firemen burned, how [can you] control a thousand fires? With the doctors dead and the hospitals smashed, how [can you] treat a quarter of a million injured?"
