Atomic Heritage Foundation President Cindy Kelly appeared on C-SPAN's Washington Journal Saturday morning, August 14, 2010 on the anniversary of Japanese surrender and the official end of WWII. During the 45-minute program, Cindy spoke about Truman’s decision to drop the atomic bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki as well as the environmental and health effects of the bomb. C-SPAN showed footage from the Army's long-classified documentary films of the aftermath of the bombs and clips of President Truman and J. Robert Oppenheimer. A national audience commented and asked questions about the Manhattan Project, the atomic bomb and its impact.
