An investigative report released by House Intelligence Committee "Chairman Mike Rogers, R-Michigan, and ranking member Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger, D-Maryland, concludes there was no intelligence failure prior to the attack, no stand-down order to CIA operatives trying to go assist at the besieged consular building, and found conflicting intelligence in the wake of the attack about the motive and cause, which were reflected in early public comments by the administration."

Auer and Halloran, Parameters (Spring 1996), portray Levine's argument thusly: "Had the A-bomb never existed,... Japan would still have quit before the planned invasion. But conventional bombing and blockade would probably have killed more Japanese than those lost at Hiroshima and Nagasaki. 'It is thus reasonably certain,' Levine concludes, 'that the use of the bomb saved Japanese as well as American lives.' He also argues: 'In hindsight, the dropping of the second bomb, so soon after the first, must be considered a horrible mistake. Nagasaki's destruction seems to have contributed nothing to the decision to surrender.' Other writers would point to continued Japanese resistance up to and beyond the Emperor's proclamation on 15 August that Japan must make peace by 'enduring the unendurable and suffering the insufferable.'"

Surveillant 3.4/5 comments that the authors write in "a 'you are there' style."
