The bomb will never go off.



William Leahy : Military Officer
In his advice to President Truman during the Manhattan Project pursuing the development of the atomic bomb, Admiral Leahy predicted the failure of the project. "That is the biggest fool thing we have ever done. The bomb will never go off, and I speak as an expert in explosives." The first atomic bomb was exploded later that year.
