Faking the devastation of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, to such a realistic extent that the Imperial Japanese Armed Forces surrendered unconditionally, was pretty impressive. As was the idea of splashing around enough radioactive iodine, cesium and strontium to convince everyone else that there had indeed been a nuclear explosion, then topping up the fallout from time to time in the 1950s to kid the rest of us that "they" were testing bigger bombs. I wonder how "they" managed to vaporise Bikini Atoll with conventional explosives - or perhaps "they" just dug it up and moved it when nobody was looking. Given the choice, I prefer to believe my old bosses whose CVs included exploding five atom bombs in ground tests and vaporising HMS Plym with an airdrop, with photographs.
I just hate conspiracy theories like this.
I feel that the author of this nonsense has more knowledge of nuclear matters than he lets on about, did he talk about "barns" or did this creep in later.
