No, we didn’t use Germans for the original, we used American Scientists. We used Captured German scientists for our rocket and missle programs after the war but during the war relied on our own people. Even then there was at least one traitor selling our nuke secrets.

I stand corrected. For some reason, I thought Oppenheimer was a foreigner.

"we used American Scientists."
Oppenheimer was born in the US to German Immigrants, so he was 1st or 2nd generation, depending on how you choose to define the term. His parents were wealthy Germans.
Other major contributors in this effort included Einstein, Enrico Fermi, Hans Bethe, Felix Bloch and Edward Teller, who were NOT born in the US, but went on to become naturalized US citizens, just like this Argentinian perp.

Fermi, Bethe, Bohr, Teller...all naturalized.
