US Officials Lied About Dangers of Fukushima From Day 1 Docs Obtained by Freedom of Information Act Show

13 05 2012

 A Freedom of Information Act(FOIA) request filed by Friends of the Earth (FoE), Physicians for Social Responsibility (PSR), and the Nuclear Information and Resource Center (NIRS) has unearthed a shocking series of new evidence proving a deliberate, global cover-up of the true severity of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster. And the unfortunate reality is that the mainstream media continues to blatantly ignore this colossal scandal.

Private emails, meeting transcripts and other key documents reveal that both the Obama White House and the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission(NRC) were well aware of just how bad things really were with Fukushima from the early days of the disaster, but did nothing to warn the public about it. In fact, NRC and the White House purposely did not warn Americans about a massive radiation plume that struck the West Coast just days after the massive earthquake and tsunami hit Japan’s eastern coast. . .  (more)

This is no alarmist article. The NRC file shows they knew on March 15 (2011) there were fires and explosions at Fukushima Daiichi.

We downloaded the docs and took this screengrab from p.6:


NRC docs (big files)  –    [pictured here]

OH! And while they were telling us “everything’s OK”, “under control”, “cold shut down – blah-blah” –  HERE is what they were telling EACH OTHER!

From p. 82 here  (red marks are ours)

And –  In this NRC doc,  Tsunami Hazard Assessment at Nuclear Power Plant Sites in the United States of America 

In the 118 page document from 2009 there are guidelines and suggestions for making some tsunami hazard maps for US coastal areas with nuke plants.
In the entire document there is NO mention of
back up generators,
diesel generators
or any generators of any kind.
The is NO mention of
back up power at all.



See for yourself – just use CONTROL + ‘F’ key to search for anything.
