What did Albert Einstein's connection with the atomic bomb?

Many people believe that Einstein's theories led to the creation of the atomic bomb, or that he even went as far as creating the atomic bomb, (believe me I've heard people say that!) The truth however, is that he barely had anything to do with the creation of the atomic bomb. During World War II, many scientists recognized the danger of Germany developing an atomic bomb based on newly discovered nuclear fission. In 1939, Leo Szilard, a Hungarian, Jewish physicist, tried to convince the current U.S. president, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, to establish a campaign to counter Germany's attempts with their own atomic bomb. He failed to get the government's attention and so went to the well known Einstein to write a letter urging for a nuclear weapon. They worked together writing the letter and Einstein signed it. On October 11, 1939 an adviser of the president's delivered the letter and convinced the president. By 1942, the Manhattan project was started in pursuit of the creation of a nuclear weapon. By 1945 that goal was reached and the bombs were tested on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The only connection between Einstein and the atomic bomb is his signature on the letter to President Roosevelt, and a few instances when he helped the U.S. Navy with some theoretical questions. Apparently, Einstein regretted ever approving the manufacture of a nuclear weapon, claiming it only led to an attempted monopoly.
