On 30 November 1945, he indicated that he thought that ‘the May–Johnson bill should be amended to provide for civilian supremacy’. 108 McMahon responded by formulating a competing bill that passed into law as the Atomic Energy Act on 1 August 1946. Under its provisions, the government would retain a complete monopoly in the ﬁeld of nuclear energy, a presidentially appointed Atomic Energy Commission would oversee the nation's nuclear energy programme and control its nuclear weapons stockpile, and presidential authorization would be required for the transfer of nuclear weapons to the military and for the actual use of such weapons.
105 Yet singular or even primary responsibility for the failure of these international control efforts does not rest solely with Harry Truman. The Acheson–Lilienthal plan was not without its ﬂaws, nor was the Soviet Union particularly forthcoming in its own approach to international control. The point, rather, is that Truman allowed his hope to succumb to his fear too quickly and too easily. Truman's insistence on the international equivalent of a police force came at the expense of the promising idea contained in the Acheson–Lilienthal report.
The Baruch Plan was committed to making this a reality. 100 Although written in reference to the 19 June 1946 Soviet counter-proposal on international control, Truman may also have had the Acheson–Lilienthal report in the back of his mind when he suggested that if we accepted the Russian position, we would be deprived of everything except their promise to agree to controls. Then, if the Russians should launch an atomic armament race, our present advantage and security gained by our discovery and initiative would be wiped out.
