Huh? This is totally wrong.
Einstein knew absolutely nothing about the A-bomb design.
The just departed Wheeler & Bohr figured out how nuclear fission worked from hearing results from Meitner et al in Germany. Then Fermi & people figured out the reactor and many details.
When physicists described the nuclear chain reaction to Einstein he said supposedly "Hmmm, clever, I never thought of that."
The A-bomb secrets are fundamentally *experimental* and *engineering*. Not at all what Einstein was invovled in at that time.

Tesla, in a letter to the editor of the New York Times, April 21, 1908:
"When I spoke of future warfare I meant that it should be conducted by direct application of electrical waves without the use of aerial engines or other implements of destruction... This is not a dream. Even now wireless powerplants could be constructed by which any region on the globe might be rendered uninhabitable without subjecting other parts to serious danger or inconvenience."
...and nine days later ... The Tunguska Event!
I think Tesla was a true genius whos' work carries on today, though hidden in the world of the Military and Intelligence. I'm somewhat concerned by what Black Budget Weapons Systems utilizing Tesla's discoveries are currently, or soon to be brought, "On Line".
A book by Jerry E. Smith actually about, and titled "HAARP", has some interesting info on Tesla also.
