In 1968, CIA Director Richard Helms was presented with a disturbing National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) stating that Israel had obtained atomic weapons, a dangerous development that occurred earlier than the CIA had anticipated.
It was particularly dangerous because just the year before, the Six Day War had marked the beginning of open hostilities between the Israelis and Arab nation states. To prevail, Israel had launched preemptive air attacks against Egypt, Jordan, Syria and Iraq at the start of the conflict. Considering that violent backdrop, Helms immediately arranged a meeting with President Lyndon Johnson to inform him of this troubling milestone.
The man who had prepared the NIE and gave it to Helms was the CIA’s chief science and technology officer, Carl Duckett. After Helms met with Johnson, the CIA Director told Duckett about the President’s rather odd reaction. LBJ did not get upset, and he did not order an investigation into how it happened. Further, he did not tell Helms to let both the Defense Department and State Department know about it so they could establish intelligence inquiries or consider sanctions.
Instead, Johnson did the opposite. He told Helms to keep the news secret and specifically told the Director not to let the secretaries of State or Defense know about it.

There are some who believe JFK was murdered because he was opposed to letting Israel have nuclear weapons. For evidence of this, refer to the book Final Judgment by Michael Collins Piper.
If that theory is correct, then LBJ's reaction was not "odd". He was put in office by the Israelis and their accomplices, and he did what they told him to do. This of course would have been treason most vile, but it never was properly investigated.
According to The Making of the Atomic Bomb by Richard Rhodes, the "founding fathers" of nuclear weapons were Leo Szilard, John von Neumann, and Edward Teller (with help from Albert Einstein). All of these men were Zionists. In reality what they accomplished was to hijack the vast resources of the US to develop and produce nuclear weapons, which then in part were diverted for use by the Israelis.
And since gangster Meyer Lansky allegedly had photos of J. Edgar Hoover performing fellatio, the FBI also turned a blind eye to what was happening.
