Well worth watching:

None of these panelists believe the Japanese government is telling the truth. (around the 40 min mark)

Cover Up Of Fukushima Chain Reaction Underway

All the nuclear reactors at the earthquake stricken Fukushima nuclear plant are under threat of melting down and exploding in a chain reaction that will signify the world’s worst ever nuclear disaster and send clouds of radioactive particles hurtling towards the United States – that’s the scale of the crisis facing Japan as officials admit for the first time that three nuclear reactors are already in a meltdown.

While the mainstream media continues to argue over the definition of a “meltdown” while unquestionably regurgitating the dubious claim of Japanese officials that the two massive explosions witnessed at the plant were caused by pressurized hydrogen, radioactive isotopes cesium-137 and iodine-121 have been detected by helicopters flying 160km (100 miles) away from the nuclear plant, which can only mean one thing, according to the Seattle Times: “One or more of the reactor cores is badly damaged and at least partially melted down.”

After claiming for three days that the explosions did not damage reactor cores and downplaying the severity of the situation, Japanese officials have now been forced to admit the obvious, that nuclear fuel rods in three reactors are melting. Given the sequence of events, it is entirely probable that all six reactor sites will now go into total meltdown and start spewing radioactive particles into the atmosphere that threaten not only Japanese citizens but also those living on the west coast of the United States.

...

The Japanese government is playing down the scale of the disaster, however, experts have pointed out that it has a long history of nuclear cover ups, and that this is merely the latest.

...








Nuclear crisis highlights history of 'cover-ups'

A documentary filmmaker who has spent much of his career focusing on the Japanese nuclear industry says it has a long history of cover-ups.



Yikes.

I think a nuclear meltdown is one of the few things they just can't cover up.

What the Japanese are doing is a sign of weakness and helplessness, they're trying to sugar coat everything in order to prevent panic. I wouldn't really call that a cover up.

The Soviets back in 1986 tried to cover up their meltdown, but after 2 days alarms went off in Sweden I think during a routine measurement. So that didn't go too well.

I agree.

In some respects, the absence of a cover-up would be noteworthy and unexpected.

'They've lost control': French claim Japan is hiding full scale of nuclear disaster as TWO more reactors heat up

Japan's stricken nuclear power plant was abandoned for hours today, as soaring radiation forced emergency workers to flee for their lives and authorities were reduced to spraying reactors with police water cannons.

All 50 emergency workers who had been fighting to keep overheating reactors cool were this morning pulled back 500 yards from the complex as radiation levels became too dangerous.

And in an extraordinary attack, the French government accused the Japanese of losing control of the situation and hiding the full scale of the disaster.



This is an amazing article. Well worth the read.

Wouldn't be the first time! I noticed a lot of asian cultures cover up the crimes and behind the scenes dirt to western audiences. Japan in addition to North Korea. I knew something was not right...

It's sickening how they can just not mention things so important for people's safety. It was the same in Czechoslovakia during the Chernobyl explosion. People were told everything was fine and that there is nothing to be worried about. However when people travelled on the trains that would go near Chernobyl they had to draw the curtains and soldiers were guarding the trains so people couldnt see what the government was hiding from them. The damage that was caused by the explosion.

You have no idea about japan culture and in addition WWII effect on them, so your words are useless.
They already have nuclear trauma.
They never liked openess to gaijins.
They have REAL problem, not CNN revelations there.
Add something else to this image: such catastrophy is matter of honour for Japan, for sure, so try to understand that they won't behave as US #*)&%# would(dozens of moronic so called reporters with SONY cams running around to make money in CNN and pleasure for US fatso's).
It's none of US business, anyway.

On the other side, as person from country near Ukraine, i am VERY worried about situation there - it seems MUCH worse than Chernobyl, seeing photos, tbh.
I have no idea how they could handle this, if another catastrophy would occur soon.



And in an extraordinary attack, the French government accused the Japanese of losing control of the situation and hiding the full scale of the disaster.


ahhh France, country, that just urges to sell their reactors EVERYWHERE, sure, they surely would go there to get any possible data to show how THEIR reactors are safe, mybe even they would be able to..SELL some to..Japan, GET REAL!

France is losing their salary soon - especially after Fukushima tragedy - people are scared - of course, their reactors and japanese ones are not the same, but general anxiety on the world is making them conscious about incoming problem, so WHAT they could say? They just said: our ones are BETTER, nothing more.

people. how lack of general knowledge makes you vulnerlable for manipulation..
its awesome and SCARY at same time.
sorry for multiple edits, I was trying to be STRIGHT.

It may be a matter of honor to show ones strength but there is also a time were censorship can only get you so far, and the rest of the world should know the danger they are/ maybe in.

Yup, it is thin red line, i am afraid.
But this problem is definitely LOCAL. To some extent, but local.

btw i wonder, if USA told to rest of world about dangers of their nuclear tests since 1950's...
or uranium ammo used in(on) few countries in terms of long-term civilians health..
I am trying to imagine Afghanistani reporter asking about this in usarmy hq.
well..

Japan Withheld Nuclear Data, Leaving Evacuees in Peril

The day after a giant tsunami set off the continuing disaster at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, thousands of residents at the nearby town of Namie gathered to evacuate.

Given no guidance from Tokyo, town officials led the residents north, believing that winter winds would be blowing south and carrying away any radioactive emissions. For three nights, while hydrogen explosions at four of the reactors spewed radiation into the air, they stayed in a district called Tsushima where the children played outside and some parents used water from a mountain stream to prepare rice.

The winds, in fact, had been blowing directly toward Tsushima — and town officials would learn two months later that a government computer system designed to predict the spread of radioactive releases had been showing just that.

But the forecasts were left unpublicized by bureaucrats in Tokyo, operating in a culture that sought to avoid responsibility and, above all, criticism. Japan’s political leaders at first did not know about the system and later played down the data, apparently fearful of having to significantly enlarge the evacuation zone — and acknowledge the accident’s severity.

...

The withholding of information, he said, was akin to “murder.”

In interviews and public statements, some current and former government officials have admitted that Japanese authorities engaged in a pattern of withholding damaging information and denying facts of the nuclear disaster — in order, some of them said, to limit the size of costly and disruptive evacuations in land-scarce Japan and to avoid public questioning of the politically powerful nuclear industry.

Japan's nuclear agency hides radiation results

Japan's nuclear watchdog has denied public access to the results of thyroid check-ups for more than 1,000 Fukushima children exposed to radiation.

Critics have accused Japan's Nuclear Safety Commission of denying the public accurate information about the crisis.

The commission had earlier uploaded the test results of more than 1,000 children who were checked to see if radioactive substances were accumulating in their thyroids.

But it has been revealed that earlier this month the commission removed the data from its website, citing privacy reasons.

But health specialists have slammed the decision, saying the commission fears a negative public reaction to children's exposure to radiation from the crippled Fukushima plant.

Japan is a sovereign country, its government decides who and what agency comes to their help.
It has nothing to do with Obama at all.
And what makes one think that nuclear industry experts from various countries are not there already and helping Japanese experts deal with the power plant?
Obame sent over some aid experts, which is the norm anyway.
There are millions of people at risk, so general aid is much needed, not just nuclear aid and if general aid is what Japan asked for, then that is what they get.

You cannot force another country to do what you want, unless you are going to send in the troops to fight a war. Your government is good at that.

Oh really.
Radiating Americans with Fukushima rain, food: Clinton's secret pact

Not surprised.



{excerpt}
Gundersen told SolarIMG that high-level people he knows in the State Department said Hillary Clinton signed a pact with her counterpart in Japan agreeing for the United States to continue buying food from Japan, despite that food not being properly tested for radioactive materials.

"So we are not sampling the food coming into the United States," he said, repeating, "The US government has come up with a decision at the highest levels of the State Department, as well as other departments who made a decision to downplay Fukushima."

In April, the month after the powerful tsunami and earthquake crippled Japan including its nuclear power plant, "Hillary Clinton signed a pact with Japan that she agreed there is no problem with Japanese food supply and we will continue to buy them so we are not sampling food coming in from Japan" according to Gundersen.

Due to this high degree of secrecy enshrouding the Fukushima nuclear catastrophe, that Gundersen said is ongoing, he has called on Americans with Geiger counters to send samples to him for an independent research team's study.

You know if you want too watch something really ,,,fill in the blank,, cause ive been a long time watcher,,
look up latest info on
RainWater
North America,
U.S.A------> Oklahoma city 1.67 micro sieverts,,,background 0.05,,,1.67 micro sieverts,,in the rainwater
Canada ---> Toronto Latest Storm-----> sieverts ?,,,,scale 10,,broke the needle,,almost,,

So never mind Japan,,
