[WW II] Japan's Planned Bombing of US

Military Historians:

The other day on "The History Channel" was a program about Japan's planned bombing of San Francisco, USA, August 17, 1945.

It stated that Nazi Germany was to give the Japanese military radioactive materials to make what we would call today a "dirty" bomb. Sea planes carried by special submarines were to drop these weapons against the US civilian population. I had never heard this.

Is this "true?" Can anyone give me more information or tell me where I could research this planned event?
