    The man speaking isn\'t \"General Short.\" He is General Leslie R. Groves (US Army), who was head of the Manhattan Project that built the first atomic bombs during World War II. This film clip probably dates from about 1946 (perhaps around the time of the atomic tests at Bikini Atoll that July), when Groves still headed the American nuclear weapons program, before control passed to the Atomic Energy Commission in Jan. 1947.
