The following video shows all that one need know, in order to understand the responsibility that the US government ought to take in this matter...
I think this just about covers it.
After the counter reached fifty milliroentgen, I had to turn the knob to change scales. The pointer kept climbing. I called for everyone to get inside. It still was far below dangerous radiation levels, but we had no idea how fast and how much it might increase. A dose of 75 to 125 roentgen received in a short interval may produce nausea and other symptoms of radiation sickness. About 450 roentgen might be fatal.

And were paid $150 million as compensation.
You see thats the problem right there . There are some things that money cannot compensate for . What happened to these people is one of them . I dont know the right answer , but walking away is not one of them . We destroyed their lives , but wait , we gave them money . Move along , all is good .

I don't understand why these people are still living in exile ?
Why weren't they set up with a new permanent home to resettle in way back when ?
I had no idea this situation even existed...
