He denied that he had attempted to persuade anyone not to work on it.

With Luis Alvarez, they appeared before the Congressional Joint Committee on Atomic Energy to urge that the bomb be made. On 31 January 1950, as we have said, President Truman announced that work should go ahead to build the bomb. Three days later Klaus Fuchs was arrested in London, reinforcing the case.

Many feared that the bomb could be built but believed that it should not.

It was an unfortunate beginning. Of the scientific witnesses, Hans Bethe gave a glowing account of Oppenheimer's integrity and judgment.
