MR. VIRGILIO: We also saw a very confusing message email from Japan that OIP got.


MR. VIRGILIO: Which talked about the same explosion, saying that they still had containment.


CHAIRMAN JACZKO: Well, I forwarded you one that I got from DOE, which it may make a little bit more sense, and it indicates that it was result that the after-shock, that they did, in fact, have a hydrogen explosion in the reactor building.

    With all the tragic news coming in that seems to be related to the Fukushima event and more frequently by the moment it looks like the best we can do is hunker down and live as long as we can.

    All I can say is thank goodness for the WEB, otherwise we all would be forced to swallow massive amounts of Nuclear Baloney (NB) provided by the nuclear industry!

    I predict that between now and 3/11/12 we will see ever more MSM stories come out of the closet against the nuclear industry, in order so that the MSM can look like good guys!
    Here is a little eye opener, from just before 3/11:

    Probably much more info coming out because of the new Wikileaks:

    I'd suggest you save this to disc…

    Transparency and disclosure are essential to our effort to bring out the truth about nuclear power, and the many other corruptions in our society. To further bringing the truth forward, we must all stand up for Bradley Manning. The government is persecuting (they call it prosecuting) him for many reasons, not the least of which is intimidation, an attemp to frighten possible future whistleblowers into remaining silent.

    We need to write to President Obama and his Attorney General to say that the case of Bradley Manning must be thrown out of court because he can't get a fair trial. Why can't Bradley Manning get a fair trial? Because President Barack Obama already said, in a press conference and on TV, that Private Bradley Manning "…broke the law."

    The Commander in Chief has spoken. Given that, Manning could not get a fair trial in even a civil court, let alone in a military court, where the attorneys and judges have vowed to follow the CIC.

    Contact Eric Holder: <>
    Obama : google "contact obama white house."

    I don't think it is OT, but if it is, do move it.
