  1. CIA Sends USAID to Japan to Manage Nuclear Disinfo Campaign

    A large scale cover-up of the extent and severity of Japan’s multiple nuclear meltdowns is now underway, according to Yoichi Shimatsu, the former editor of the Japan Times Weekly. Mr. Shimatsu appeared on CCTV, China’s state-run television network.

    “Following a high-level meeting called by the lame-duck prime minister, Japanese agencies are no longer releasing independent reports without prior approval from the top,” writes Shimatsu. “The censorship is being carried out following the imposition of the Article 15 Emergency Law.”

    Shimatsu contends that the Obama White House sent a team to consult the Naoto Kan government. Instead of dispatching experts from the Department of Energy, Nuclear Safety Agency and Health Department, representatives of USAID were sent to micromanage the cover-up.

    Since the 1960s, USAID – short for United States Agency for International Development – has maintained a close working relationship with the CIA, and Agency officers often operated abroad under USAID cover, according to author William Blum (Killing hope: U.S. military and CIA interventions since World War II, p. 142, 200, 234). The close relationship between USAID and the CIA is also documented in the long-suppressed “family jewels” documents (see pages 607 to 613).

    The CIA and the spooks are naturally concerned about their foothold on the Misawa Air Force Base in the Iwate Prefecture, hard hit by the earthquake. “Misawa, the hub of US electronic warfare and high-tech espionage in East Asia with its fleet of P-3 Orions and an ECHELON eavesdropping antennae,” Shimatsu notes.

    In addition, the establishment is worried about geopolitical aspects of the crisis, most notably in regard to regional “enemies” Pyongyang, Beijing and Moscow. Both China and Russia have both offered aid without strings attached and this is undoubtedly considered a threat by the political establishment in the United States.

    The Pentagon also has a vested interest in stage managing information emerging from Japan. In addition to its sprawling military bases in the country since the end of the Second World War, one of the military industrial complex’s major players, Westinghouse, runs a nuclear fuel operation at Tokai in the Ibaraki prefecture.

    Westinghouse took control of Japan’s Nuclear Fuel Industries Ltd — the country’s sole producer of fuel for both boiling-water reactors and pressurized-water reactors — in 2009.

    Toshiba Westinghouse closed the plant on Friday after the earthquake struck.

    The CIA, through USAID, is running a disinfo campaign on Japan’s earthquake crippled nuclear facilities for geopolitical reasons. The Japanese people will ultimately suffer, as will millions of other people who happen to be downwind from the stricken plants.
  2. 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 two explosions have already compromised the surrounding facilities. Tens of thousands of people have been evacuated from a 20-km exclusion zone around the plant which keeps growing. Latest reports suggest that the exclusion zone is already at 50km and expanding. Casualties in the immediate vicinity of the nuclear facilities are likely to be far higher than reported.

    Japanese authorities, presumably in an effort to prevent hysteria, have engaged in a cover-up of the true scale of the Fukushima crisis from start to finish, and they have been largely aided by a mass media that has slavishly repeated their lies without question, despite the fact that there is a long history of covering up nuclear catastrophes in Japan. This process has only put the Japanese people in more danger.

  3. Japanese Government Cover-up Foreshadows Mega-disaster

    Kurt Nimmo
    March 14, 2011

    The corporate media is almost unanimous in its appraisal of the nuclear crisis unfolding in Japan – the meltdown of multiple nuclear reactors will not result in a Chernobyl-style disaster.

    According to the Japanese government, the explosion at the Fukushima Daiichi No. 3 reactor is not much to worry about. Officials said the inner reactor container remained intact, but this information should be taken with a large grain of salt – the Japanese government has a fairly extensive track record of covering up its nuclear accidents and mishaps.

    In 2003 alone, Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) shut down 17 plants because the company had falsified records pertaining to a series accidents that pale in comparison to what is now unfolding at Fukushima and other nuclear power plants in the country.

    TEPCO is the largest electric utility in Japan and the 4th largest electric utility in the world.

    “The nuclear power plant failures and explosions near Fukushima, Japan are an excellent case example of the failure of government. Here, the Japanese government has been horribly derelict before, during and after this incident,” writes Mike Rogers from Tokyo. “I am not talking about just the Japanese government here. I am talking about all governments. All governments lie all the time. It is the nature of government to do so.”

    A former nuclear power plant designer said Japan is facing an extremely grave crisis and called on the government to release more information, which he said was being suppressed, the BBC reported yesterday. He accused the government of deliberately withholding vital information that would allow outside experts help solve the problems.

    Masashi Goto told a news conference in Tokyo that one of the reactors at the Fukushima-Daiichi plant was “highly unstable” and that if there was a meltdown the “consequences would be tremendous.” Mr. Goto made his comments prior to the explosion of a second reactor at the Fukushima plant earlier today.

    Goto said that the failure now unfolding at Fukushima represents “many Chernobyls.” He said further explosions will spread radioactive material over a very wide area, well beyond the 20 kilometer evacuation zone set up by the authorities over the weekend.

    The single Chernobyl event that began on April 26, 1986, released as much as 300 times the lethal radioactive fallout of the Hiroshima bomb, according to the Hiroshima International Council for Health Care of the Radiation-exposed. Radiation had been released for 10 days and scattered in different directions as the wind shifted. Cecium-137, strontium-90, iodine-131, and plutonium were the major radiation source for the contamination. Millions of people in the Soviet Union and Europe were exposed.

    Gotto’s “many Chernobyls” scenario is now playing out in Japan and the government is covering it up. If the situation is not contained in record time, the above figures taken after Chernobyl will be dwarfed.

    The Soviet military followed the same disastrous course the Japanese government is now following – a massive cover-up of the scope and severity of the crisis, including wide-scale falsification of medical histories, the disappearance of people’s records so the state would not have to compensate them, and the wholesale looting of evacuated houses and abandoned churches (see John Vidal’s article about Chernobyl, Hell on Earth).

    “This is a terrible situation indeed, but there is a very important lesson in life for all of us in this mess,” concludes Mike Rogers from his perch in Tokyo. “I believe that this is a lesson that is teaching us personal responsibility and it is also teaching us to have a healthy skepticism of the state and its proclamations.”

  4. Radiation From Fukushima Would Take 7 Days To Reach U.S.

    Radioactive particles from the stricken Fukushima nuclear facility would take around a week to reach Alaska and eleven days to reach Los Angeles, according to an analysis, which highlights the fact that prevailing winds over the region would send any potential fallout from the crisis-hit plant drifting towards west coast cities in the United States.

    Given the fact that many analysts believe the Japanese government is grossly understating the amount of radioactive particles released by the two separate explosions to affect the Fukushima plant, one which occurred Saturday and one earlier today, monitoring stations in Alaska will not know if there is a threat from such radiation until Saturday at the earliest.

    “Radiation detected at the Fukushima plant on Monday is twice the maximum seen so far,” the BBC is reporting, citing Kyodo News.

    An analysis highlights how prevailing wind trajectories would take the radiation from a westerly direction towards the west coast of the United States.

    “A typical wind trajectory across the Pacific is westerly, since there is often a large dome of high pressure over the central Pacific and an area of low pressure in the Gulf of Alaska,” writes meteorologist Meghan Evans.

    Today’s localized winds are set to carry any radiation out into the Pacific from a north westerly to south easterly direction. However, “The wind direction will switch to an onshore direction Monday night into Tuesday, threatening to send the radiation toward the population,” writes Evans.

    “This is not good news, since an onshore direction would blow most of the radiation toward populated areas. An added threat is that with higher elevations just about 4 miles inland from the power plants, if a temperature inversion sets up in the atmosphere, radiation could be trapped.”

    The worst case scenario is that localized winds could take the fallout south to Tokyo, and the prevailing westerly winds could also carry upper atmosphere particles towards the U.S.

    It would take roughly seven days for the radiation to reach Anchorage, eight days until it reached Honolulu, ten days for Seattle and eleven days before it hit Los Angeles, according to figures calculated by Expert Senior Global Meteorologist Jim Andrews.

    Assurances from officials that any radiation would dissipate over the Pacific Ocean before reaching the United States are tenuous given the fact that pollution from Chinese coal factories, traveling significantly greater distances, routinely hits California.

    “Previous studies have documented that dust from Asia — especially from deserts and industrial regions of China — routinely crosses the Pacific Ocean on prevailing winds to sully the air over the western U.S.,” highlights Massie Santos Ballon, a student in the Science Communication Program at the University of California, Santa Cruz.

    The Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has also studied how, “About a third of the airborne lead particles recently collected at two sites in the San Francisco Bay Area came from Asia.”

    Weather conditions will hugely influence where any potential radiation falls. If there is a significant amount of rainfall, which has been forecast for the next few days, the majority of the radiation will fall in a localized area. However, drier conditions will allow any radiation to travel much further.

    As we featured in our earlier report, nuclear expert Joe Cirincione also fears that radiation from the Japanese nuclear plant could also reach the west coast.

    When Fox News host Chris Wallace questioned whether radioactivity could travel thousands of miles across the Pacific, Cirincione responded, “Oh, absolutely. Chernobyl, which happened about 25 years ago, the radioactivity spread around the entire northern hemisphere. It depends how many of these cores melt down and how successful they are on containing it once this disaster happens.”

  6. Radioactive Releases in Japan Could Last Months, Experts Say

    The New York Times
    March 14, 2011

    WASHINGTON — As the scale of Japan’s nuclear crisis begins to come to light, experts in Japan and the United States say the country is now facing a cascade of accumulating problems that suggest that radioactive releases of steam from the crippled plants could go on for weeks or even months.

    The emergency flooding of stricken reactors with seawater and the resulting steam releases are a desperate step intended to avoid a much bigger problem: a full meltdown of the nuclear cores in reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station. On Monday, an explosion blew the roof off the second reactor, not damaging the core, officials said, but presumably leaking more radiation.

    Later Monday, the government said cooling systems at a third reactor had failed. The Kyodo news agency reported that the damaged fuel rods at the third reactor had been temporarily exposed, increasing the risk of overheating. Sea water was being channeled into the reactor to cover the rods, Kyodo reported.

  8. Japanese Nuclear Meltdown Means Detrimental Health Effects Worldwide

    After repeated denials by the Japanese Government insisting that radiation leakage from their nuclear power plants was a non-issue, recent video and reported evidence confirms the horrific truth. Japan is now preparing for the worst case scenario evacuating hundreds of thousands of people. The radioactive release may soon reach Canada and the United States and exposure may last months. Recent media reports have downplayed the seriousness of Japan’s quake-stricken Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power complex on Monday, stating that it “is unlikely to have led to a large escape of radioactivity,” the Japanese government said.

    Prior to the an explosion on Saturday, the media reported the radiation level were 1000 times higher than the permissible level.

    Some videos have now clearly shown the full scale of the explosion which is “unlikely” to have cause anything but a major release of radioactive uranium into the atmosphere. The radiation plume will eventually travel thousands of miles towards Canada and the United States and then circulating the planet.

    “It is obvious the Japanese are attempting to cover up the deadly seriousness of events unfolding in their country,” reported

    As a result of alternative video reports and journalists, the Japanese government is now changing their story, admitting over 300,000 people evacuated and possibly tens of thousands dead.

    About 2,000 bodies were found on Monday on two shores of Miyagi prefecture in northeast Japan.

    According to the Washington Post, Workers at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant did not find a way to stabilize overheated reactors and feared the possibility of partial nuclear meltdown, which could potentially cause a further release of radioactive material, Japan’s top government spokesman said Sunday. Engineers were having trouble, in particular, with two units at the nuclear facility.

    The emergency flooding of two stricken reactors with seawater and the resulting steam releases were a desperate step intended to avoid a much bigger problem: a full meltdown of the nuclear cores in two reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station. On Monday, an explosion blew the roof off the second reactor, not damaging the core, officials said, but presumably leaking more radiation.

    So far, Japanese officials have said the melting of the nuclear cores in the two plants is assumed to be “partial,” and the amount of radioactivity measured outside the plants, though twice the level Japan considers safe, has been relatively modest.

    According to most recent information, the breakdown occurred because of the complete loss of electric supplies as a result of the earthquake. The cooling system in the reactor zone went out of order, and the reactor began to heat up.

    Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano said officials were acting on the assumption that a meltdown could be underway at Fukushima Daiichi’s unit 3, and that it was “highly possible” a meltdown was underway at its unit 1 reactor, where an explosion destroyed a building a day earlier.
