Libyan Rebel Leader Spent Much of Past 20 Years in Suburban Virginia

Oh what have we here? Just a natural home grown libyan uprising...led by...ahem....residents of Virginia, isn't that where the CIA is headquartered?

From Cryptogon.

Since coming to the United States in the early 1990s, Hifter lived in suburban Virginia outside Washington, D.C. Badr said he was unsure exactly what Hifter did to support himself…


From The Week

Are Libyan rebels being led by a CIA plant?
Until recently, Khalifa Hifter — who's leading the anti-Gadhafi forces — lived five miles from CIA headquarters in Virginia. Coincidence?

EU and EPA Raising Radiation Limits

Radiation is no problem at all. We will just raise the limits allowable, then it's fine. "...Permitting doses to the public that EPA itself estimates would cause a cancer in as much as every fourth person exposed, the group says." Gulp.

From Cryptogon

The EPA is preparing to dramatically increase permissible radioactive releases in drinking water, food and soil after “radiological incidents,” according to Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility.

The radiation guides called Protective Action Guides or PAGs are protocols for responding to radiological events ranging from nuclear power-plant accidents to dirty bombs.
Drinking water, for example, would have a huge increase in allowable public exposure to radioactivity, the group says, that would include:

A nearly 1000-fold increase in strontium-90
A 3000 to 100,000-fold hike for iodine-131
An almost 25,000 rise for nickel-63

The new radiation guidance would also allow long-term cleanup standards thousands of times more lax than anything EPA has ever before accepted, permitting doses to the public that EPA itself estimates would cause a cancer in as much as every fourth person exposed, the group says.


From Infinite Unknown

Levels of radioactivity in Japanese food allowed in the EU market may now be many times higher! Some japanese food now can be imported to the EU (and Austria) with such increased levels of radioactivity, that even in Japan they would not get into the trade. According to the new EU regulation Japanese foods must be checked strictly, but in addition the new EU regulation says that the limits for cesium may be increased up to 20 times!

Obama Authorizes Secret Help For CIA Backed Al-Qaeda/Libyan Rebels

From Reuters.

(Reuters) - President Barack Obama has signed a secret order authorizing covert U.S. government support for rebel forces seeking to oust Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, government officials told Reuters on Wednesday.

Obama signed the order, known as a presidential "finding", within the last two or three weeks, according to government sources familiar with the matter...

Benghazi and Darnah, Hotbeds of Anti-American Al-Qaeda?

These excerpts are taken from an article on Tarpley.Net entitled The CIA’s Libya Rebels: The Same Terrorists who Killed US, NATO Troops in Iraq


From Tarpley.Net

...This means that almost one fifth of the foreign fighters entering Iraq across the Syrian border came from Libya, a country of just over 6 million people. A higher proportion of Libyans were interested in fighting in Iraq than any other country contributing mujahedin. Felter and Fishman point out: “Almost 19 percent of the fighters in the Sinjar Records came from Libya alone. Furthermore, Libya contributed far more fighters per capita than any other nationality in the Sinjar Records, including Saudi Arabia.” (See the chart from the West Point report, page 9)3

But since the Al Qaeda personnel files contain the residence or hometown of the foreign fighters in question, we can determine that the desire to travel to Iraq to kill Americans was not evenly distributed across Libya, but was highly concentrated precisely in those areas around Benghazi which are today the epicenters of the revolt against Colonel Gaddafi which the US, Britain, France, and others are so eagerly supporting.

As Daya Gamage of the Asia Tribune comments in a recent article on the West Point study, “…alarmingly for Western policymakers, most of the fighters came from eastern Libya, the center of the current uprising against Muammar el-Qaddafi. The eastern Libyan city of Darnah sent more fighters to Iraq than any other single city or town, according to the West Point report. It noted that 52 militants came to Iraq from Darnah, a city of just 80,000 people (the second-largest source of fighters was Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, which has a population of more than 4 million). Benghazi, the capital of Libya’s provisional government declared by the anti-Qaddafi rebels, sent in 21 fighters, again a disproportionate number of the whole.”4 Obscure Darnah edged out metropolitan Riyadh by 52 fighters to 51. Qaddafi’s stronghold of Tripoli, by contrast, barely shows up in the statistics at all. (See chart from West Point report, page 12)

What explains this extraordinary concentration of anti-American fighters in Benghazi and Darnah? The answer seems related to extremist schools of theology and politics which flourished in these areas. As the West Point report notes: “Both Darnah and Benghazi have long been associated with Islamic militancy in Libya.” These areas are in theological and tribal conflict with the central government of Colonel Gaddafi, in addition to being politically opposed to him. Whether such a theological conflict is worth the deaths of still more American and European soldiers is a question which needs urgently to be answered.


So Benghazi and Darnah, the origins of the Libyan rebellion are in fact hot beds of anti-american terrorists! These are the places which Obama spoke such nobel words about, as needing our aid, as he proclaimed his new war was for humanitarian concerns.

What might be the reasons for this seemingly absurd reality? Tarpley explains further some possible motives.

The first is to use the terrorists in Libya to destablize Qaddafi instead of seeing them all go to Iraq to fight the Americans:

Felter and Fishman hint that it might be possible to use the former LIFG components of Al Qaeda against the government of Colonel Qaddafi in Libya, in essence creating a de facto alliance between the United States and a segment of the terrorist organization. The West Point report notes: “The Libyan Islamic Fighting Group’s unification with al-Qa’ida and its apparent decision to prioritize providing logistical support to the Islamic State of Iraq is likely controversial within the organization. It is likely that some LIFG factions still want to prioritize the fight against the Libyan regime, rather than the fight in Iraq. It may be possible to exacerbate schisms within LIFG, and between LIFG’s leaders and al-Qa’ida’s traditional Egyptian and Saudi power-base.”13 This suggests the US policy we see today, that of allying with the obscurantist and reactionary al Qaeda fanatics in Libya against the Nasserist modernizer Qaddafi.

One motive may be the Obama/Brezinski angle on using Al-Qaeda to achieve policy goals:

The Bush approach was to use the alleged presence of Al Qaeda as a reason for direct military attack. The Obama method is to use Al Qaeda to overthrow independent governments, and then either Balkanize and partition the countries in question, or else use them as kamikaze puppets against larger enemies like Russia, China, or Iran. This approach implies a more or less open fraternization with terrorist groups, which was signaled in a general way in Obamas famous Cairo speech of 2009. The links of the Obama campaign to the terrorist organizations deployed by the CIA against Russia were already a matter of public record three years ago.26


Finally at the end of his article, Tarpley presents a possible game plan for the actions of today.

As Shayler understood the MI-6 scenario, it included the liquidation of Gaddafi, followed by the descent of Libya into chaos and tribal warfare, with a possible option for a direct seizure of power by al Qaeda itself. This situation would then provide a pretext for Britain, probably but not necessarily acting together with the United States or other countries, to invade Libya and seize control of the oil fields, probably establishing a permanent protectorate over the oil regions, the pipelines, and the coast.31 This remains the goal today.

It's all a puppet show, what we are allowed to see, and for many, that's all they will ever imagine exists.

CIA Operative Appointed to Run al-Qaeda Connected Libyan Rebels

From Infowars.

Kurt Nimmo
Infowars.com
March 29, 2011

On Saturday, McClatchy reported that Khalifa Hifter, a former Gaddafi military officer, was appointed to lead the rebel army supported by the United Nations, the United States and the Globalist Coalition.

Hifter spent two decades living in suburban Virginia “where he established a life but maintained ties to anti-Gaddafi groups,” writes Chris Adams for the newspaper. A friend told the journalist he “was unsure exactly what Hifter did to support himself, and that Hifter primarily focused on helping his large family.”

As it turns out, Mr. Hifter is a CIA operative, which likely explains his lengthy stay in Virginia. In 1996, the Washington Post reported that a Col. Haftar (a variation on Hifter) had arrived in the United States and he was “reported to be the leader of a contra-style group based in the U.S. called the Libyan National Army,” the Wisdom Fund noted at the time. “This group is supported by the U.S., and has been given training facilities in the U.S. It’s a good presumption that Col. Haftar’s group operates in Libya with the blessings of our government.”

US To Purchase Oil From Libyan Rebels, Thereby Funding "Flickers" Of Al Qaeda

Oh yes, it's all about helping civilians.


From Zerohedge.

Following recent news that the supremely organized Libyan rebels have established their own central bank and oil company (does anyone recall when rebels merely rebelled instead of immediately setting up an oil export infrastructure and a fiat counterfeiting authority... those were the days), we now learn that this impressively "impromptu" development may have actually been intended all along. From Reuters: "The United States on Monday gave a green light to sales of Libyan crude oil from rebel-held territory, giving a potential boost to forces battling Muammar Gaddafi. A U.S. Treasury Department official said Libyan rebels would not be subject to U.S. sanctions if they avoid entities linked to Gaddafi's regime, which would allow them to sell oil under their control." And confirming just hos hypocritical any international embargo attempts are, here is the Un confirming that when it comes to determining international priorities, the only word that matters is the one that did not figure once in Obama's Libya speech yesterday: "There is no U.N. embargo on Libyan oil," a U.N. Security Council diplomat told Reuters on condition of anonymity. "The rebels can sell oil. But they can't do it through the Libyan National Oil Corporation."" And the kicker: according to the US NATO leader among those profiting from this latest move of US desperation is none other than Al Qaeda...

Just A Little Side Note Amongst All The Propaganda...

I heard from a well intentioned friend or two, "Oh can you believe it? Qaddafi is firing on his own people with aircraft! Terrible!"

But do we know if that is true at all? Remember yellow cake uranium, WMDs in Iraq, Kuwaiti Incubator babies, Jessica Lynch etc...These were all later proved to be lies. Will this one be? Not sure, but it probably is smart to be skeptical. The Pentagon gets its deceptive propaganda points out in the media quickly...

The Russians weren't buying it:

“Airstrikes in Libya did not take place” – Russian military



From Bloomberg

Gates and Navy Admiral Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, also said they have seen no confirmation of reports that Qaddafi has used aircraft to fire on Libyans.

Does it matter though if they have 'confirmation'? Not really, the image is in millions of unthinking heads...oh that dastardly Qadaffi mowing down his own people with his jets, thus enabling a new unauthorized regime change/invasion operation in Libya.


Of course if you want to see someone firing on civilians from aircraft, have a look at this.

Civilian casualties? It wasn't me...

124 Tomahawk land attack cruise missles were launched targeting air defense sites around Tripoli and elsewhere in Libya.

About one minute into this video you can see what Tomahawk explosions look like:


Tomahawk missile variants von chipmuck

On 20 March 2011, U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM) announced that three B-2 stealth bombers had attacked Libyan airfields using reportedly 40 JDAMs (later reports said 45 GBU-31/B weapons were used) to destroy hardened shelters used by Libyan fighter-bombers.

Ok want to have a look at a Libyan airfield? Here is an aerial view of their biggest airfield:



i.e. surrounded by civilian residential areas.

Then you have a video which claims to show civilian casualties from the bombing campaign in libya.



Tornado Jets have also been blasting Gaddafi's presidential compound in downtown Tripoli. The article claims civilians there were being used as human shields.

But according to Defense Secretary Gates this is all hogwash because Libya may be placing corpses at bombed sites.

"The truth of the matter is we have trouble coming up with proof of any civilian casualties that we have been responsible for," Gates said in the television interview.

That's right, our bombs and cruise missles don't kill civilians. At least they don't, if you say they don't and you control the media.

I guess this report of the Osprey pilot rescue crew who rambo style opened fire on libyan civilians is also not true, since the military denies it.

And according to the LA Times the dead children from a bombed farmhouse are somehow just so suspicious. Must be Gaddafi's propaganda it seems to say. The villagers who witnessed it are part of the scheme. They are actors on Gaddafi's payroll apparently.

Now who is the conspiracy theorist LA Times?

If the pentagon says it didn't happen. It didn't. We know they never lie.

"It wasn't me."

Up to 500,000 protestors attend anti-cuts demo

By Alan Jones, PA
Saturday, 26 March 2011

Organisers of a huge protest against the Government's public spending cuts tonight hailed the demonstration a "fantastic success" after hundreds of thousands of people joined the biggest event of its kind for over 20 years.

Between 400,000 and 500,000 teachers, nurses, firefighters, council and NHS workers, other public sector employees, students, pensioners and campaign groups from across the UK marched through central London to a rally where union officials and Labour leader Ed Miliband condemned the "brutal" cuts in jobs and services.

Violence flared away from the rally when a group of hundreds of activists, not connected with the union protest, clashed with police. They set off fireworks, threw paint and attacked shops in Oxford Street, Regent Street and Piccadilly.

Topshop and HSBC had their windows smashed, while paint and glass bottles were thrown at a Royal Bank of Scotland branch.

Covering their faces with scarves, they fought with police and disrupted traffic, throwing lightbulbs filled with ammonia at officers and lighting a fire.

Nine arrests were made and some police officers were injured.

Radiation spikes in seawater off stricken Japan plant

Seawater 19 miles from Fukushima has radiation levels 1,250 times higher then normal.

TOKYO (Reuters) - Radiation levels have soared in seawater near Japan's crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, officials said on Saturday, as engineers struggled to stabilize the power station two weeks after it was hit by a massive earthquake and tsunami.

Tests on Friday showed iodine 131 levels in seawater 30 km (19 miles) from the coastal nuclear complex had spiked 1,250 times higher than normal, but it was not considered a threat to marine life or food safety, the Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency said.

GE, World's Largest Corporation, Paid Zero Dollars in U.S. Taxes Last Year

From Alternet

You know how we've been covering the efforts of U.S. Uncut, the growing campaign to stop corporate tax dodgers from exploiting overseas tax havens? Well here's an excellent example of why such efforts are desperately needed, from the front page of the New York Times:

General Electric, the nation’s largest corporation, had a very good year in 2010.

The company reported worldwide profits of $14.2 billion, and said $5.1 billion of the total came from its operations in the United States.

Its American tax bill? None. In fact, G.E. claimed a tax benefit of $3.2 billion.

How can that be, you ask?

The company has been cutting the percentage of its American profits paid to the Internal Revenue Service for years, resulting in a far lower rate than at most multinational companies.

Its extraordinary success is based on an aggressive strategy that mixes fierce lobbying for tax breaks and innovative accounting that enables it to concentrate its profits offshore. G.E.’s giant tax department, led by a bow-tied former Treasury official named John Samuels, is often referred to as the world’s best tax law firm....The team includes former officials not just from the Treasury, but also from the I.R.S. and virtually all the tax-writing committees in Congress.

Another 9/11 Witness Describes Demolition Explosions at Twin Towers

From 9/11 Blogger.

The International Center for 9/11 Studies has posted four new videos on its YouTube page. All of the videos were discovered in the materials received by the Center in response to its Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) for all of the photographs and videos it used or received during its investigation.

The first video is an excerpt of an interview with 9/11 survivor Paul Lemos. It was extracted from Release 25 (42A0106-G25D16). Mr. Lemos describes what he believes are bombs exploding at the World Trade Center, well below the area where the airplane impacted the building. Interestingly, he refers to an architect "they [the authorities?] pulled in" who explained to Mr. Lemos that it wasn't explosions he was seeing.




And then there is this old video of the FDNY describing in the exact same way the demolition explosions in the WTC that day as well.

Jim Rogers: “We’re at a moment of truth for the dollar."

From Beacon Equity


“We’re at a moment of truth for the dollar,” Rogers continued. “If the dollar breaks and keeps going down now . . . there’s a lot of good news for the dollar: the Middle East is erupting–supposed good news for the dollar. All of these people are supposed to be fleeing to the U.S. dollar as a currency for safety. But it’s not happening. When you start seeing good news for something and it goes down, it’s usually a good sign that you better get out fast.”

The dollar’s next move is critical, he said, as a break down to near the all-time lows for the currency at approximately 71 on the USDX achieved just prior to the Bear Stearns meltdown of March 2008 will turn him into a seller of the dollar.

“If it [dollar] keeps going down, I’m going to have to dump the rest of my dollars, and then it’s all over for the dollar.”

However, if the Greenback stops sliding from its present 75.60 level on the USDX, Rogers will consider buying dollars again for what he sees could be another significant rally.

“I am thinking about buying it [dollar], because if it doesn’t keep going down, then it’s going to have a big rally,” he offered. “If it holds here, it probably could go up 10% or 12%–no, maybe 20%.”

But on the downside, Rogers put the dollar on a short leash, “If it goes down 3% or 4% from here, I would have to sell and get out and hope I’m still solvent. Then it’s going to, you know, multi-decade new lows.”

“Somewhere along the line we’re going to have a tipping point for the dollar, then, it’s all over,” he concluded. “I thought it would happen in a few years; maybe it’s going to happen in a few weeks.”

But the most troubling development is that instead of being proactive and finally warning its citizens about the dangers, the Japanese government has just raised the decontamination threshold by nearly 20 times from 6,000 cpm to a stunning 100,000 cpm.

Not even a full day after the UN-endorsed attack on Libya began, and the "invader's remorse" is already manifesting itself as discontent among the "peacemakers" emerges.

There are no definitive reports yet, but we should now for sure within hours, if the Keppel FELS built TLP is indeed the culprit: "According to Paul Barnard, operations controller for the USCG in Louisiana, a helicopter crew has been dispatched to the site of the Matterhorn SeaStar oil rig, owned by W&T Offshore, Inc." And if preliminary reports are correct, BP will have been the appetizer: "Multiple reports have come in of a sheen nearly 100 miles long and 10 miles wide originating near the site." If confirmed, Obama can kiss tomorrow's Rio golf outing goodbye...

The Most Dangerous Nuclear Plant in America Is About 30 Miles From New York City

From New York Magazine

As if it wasn't bad enough that a giant tsunami is probably going to wash over much of the city at some point (hopefully after everyone gets their own personal jetpacks — which we haven't forgotten about, by the way, scientists), now we also have a nuclear disaster to worry about. According to calculations by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, out of all the nuclear reactors in the country, the one with the highest risk of core damage from an earthquake is reactor number 3 at Indian Point, the facility in Westchester that provides about a third of New York City's power. The risk is still small — a 1 in 10,000 chance each year — but it's apparently large enough to be "right on the verge of requiring 'immediate concern regarding adequate protection' of the public."

King Hypocrite Obama: There Will be Blood in Libya

This invasion/air attack of Libya isn't about civilians. There are civilians all over getting shot in countries we support such as Yemen, or Bahrain. Who knows what is really happening in Libya in any case. The mainstream media is only a propaganda organ of the imperialist war machine which is skilled in creating false propaganda and lies. In any case, the imperialists want their oil, and they want Gadhafi out. This whole middle east situation will end in tears as the plans of the empire builders and grand chess board players have grown too big and too absurd even for them. The Western World truly seems like a house of cards, or even worse, a desperate poker player.

On Friday, the teleprompter reader in chief and NCAA basketball picker Obama bellied up to the podium in the East Room of the White House and read his script. He said Libyan thug Moammar Gadhafi has to stop attacking civilians or face military retaliation.
“Left unchecked, we have every reason to believe that Gadhafi would commit atrocities against his people. Many thousands could die. A humanitarian crisis would ensue. The entire region could be destabilized, endangering many of our allies and partners,” Obama read from the teleprompter.
“These terms are not subject to negotiation,” said Barry, sounding like a Mafia don in a back room meeting between crime families. “If Gadhafi does not comply with the resolution, the international community will impose consequences, and the resolution will be enforced through military action.”
In other words, there will be blood.
Meanwhile, the wife of the man who bombed civilians in Serbia and Iraq with depleted uranium said nothing short of a “decision by Colonel Gadhafi to leave” will prevent cruise missiles from raining down on Libya. The Voice of America – otherwise known as the voice of the U.S. government and the CIA – said Madame Clinton was skeptical of any attempt by Gadhafi and crew to avoid shock and awe.
Translation: the Europeans and their quisling Arab partners will attack Libya no matter what its thug leader in designer Bedouin clothes does.
Obama’s pretend concern for Libyan civilians is especially disgusting considering his inheritance of the neocon campaign to slaughter Iraqi and Afghan civilians.
Barry Obama oversaw the expansion of this organized serial murder effort aimed at the tribal areas of Pakistan where we are told the intelligence asset al-Qaeda has settled (as the showtime terror group invariably settles in places on the bombing schedule).
In an absurd and completely transparent half-ass effort to mask the truth about the Pentagon’s killing sprees, the United Nations claimed that only 80 Afghan civilians were killed last year in U.S. military operations in Afghanistan.
In fact, 2010 was the deadliest year to date for civilians in the Afghan “war” with 2,777 killed, a figure that represents a 15 percent jump in the death toll over the previous year. Large numbers of children and women were among the dead — 1,175 and 555 respectively, the AFP reported last week...

Radioactive Plume Tracking Map

Here to the map.


(UPDATE) Here you can find more recent maps

Urgent radiation preparedness action items for California, Oregon, Washington, B.C., Yukon and Alaska

This article seems to miss the obvious however, stay indoors as much as possible. Stay out of the rain especially.


From Natural News.

(NaturalNews) The New York Times report that a radiation plume will reach California by Friday has a lot of people asking us for more information about what to do. (See http://www.nytimes.com/2011/03/17/s...) Fortunately, the amount of radiation that would actually fall on California (or Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, Alaska, etc.) is currently very small. Too small to pose a serious health risk for right now.

The time to get really concerned is if -- and only if -- the Fukushima reactors suffer a fuel rod "meltdown" event which would release a massive amount of radiation into the atmosphere. The United Nations has calculated that such an event would send a cloud of very powerful radiation headed eastward, arriving on the shores of the United States and Canada within 2-3 days after the meltdown, depending on wind patterns.

Importantly, this will give you some time to take action should such an event occur. The next 24 - 48 hours are crucial in Japan's effort to stop the nuclear fuel rod meltdown. It is entirely unknown whether Japan can succeed in stopping it. The situation remains dire.

Important action items to take right now

If you live in the western states or provinces of North America, it is extremely important to be prepared by taking the following actions RIGHT NOW:

1) Fuel up your vehicle(s) and be ready to hit the road for a possible evacuation (or hunker down if you're out in the country and feel like you would be safer there).

2) If you plan to stay put, go to the hardware store TODAY and buy large amounts of plastic sheeting and duct tape to seal up your windows and doors. This will help protect you from radioactive fallout. You will also need to store water, food, and all the usual emergency supplies because outside help probably won't be available.

3) If you plan to evacuate, have a "Go Bag" ready to go at a moment's notice. This go bag should include a water filter, emergency radio, flashlight, duct tape, emergency knife, spare cash, whatever medical supplies you might need, extra food and water, spare fuel cans and so on. Have it ready now in case you need it.

4) Significantly increase your intake of iodine-containing foods and superfoods starting right now: Seaweeds are a great source. We've listed our entire inventory of what we have available at our store (http://www.naturalnews.com/031730_i...), but I would actually prefer you to go out and get this locally TODAY at your local health food stores, where possible. You may not have time to wait on a UPS delivery. Fortunately, our store ships from Ojai, California, meaning that if you order foods from us today that are in stock, and you're in California, you could receive them very, very quickly (within 1-2 business days).

5) If you have potassium iodide pills (radiation pills), don't take them yet. Keep them ready to take if and only if a meltdown event occurs and a massive dose of radiation has been released into the atmosphere.

6) Have a plan for you and your family. Where will you meet if you need to evacuate? Don't count on cell phones working. Have a plan of where to go, how to get there and how to survive once you get there.

Why you probably won't be told the truth on all this by "official" sources

Hopefully none of this will be necessary. If they can stop the meltdown at Fukushima, there is virtually no real radiation risk in North America. That's the outcome we're all hoping and praying for.

But if a meltdown takes place, it is almost certain that strong winds will push a massive radiation cloud right into North America within a matter of days, potentially dropping an extremely dangerous quantity of radioactive material on California or other regions. That's the scenario that we all need to be prepared to guard against...

Fukushima Crisis Worsens as U.S. Warns of a Large Radiation Release

From New York Times.


The top U.S. nuclear regulator, Gregory Jaczko, gave a dire assessment of Japan's nuclear crisis yesterday, saying that lethal radiation from uncovered spent fuel above one of the reactors could force emergency workers to abandon their fight to prevent meltdowns of damaged reactor cores at the Fukushima Daiichi plant.

Jaczko, chairman of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, said his staff in Tokyo had been told by Japanese utility officials that cooling water that normally covers spent fuel was nearly or totally gone from an uncovered concrete pool above reactor Unit 4. Based upon that assessment, the U.S. Embassy in Tokyo advised Americans living within about 50 miles of the plant on Japan's northeast coast to evacuate farther away. Japan has called for an evacuation within about 12 miles of the plant.

His comments to a House committee were disputed but not explicitly denied by Japanese authorities, exposing an apparently major communications issue between the United States and Japan. If Jaczko's information was correct, the plant's owner, Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) may have withheld information about the gravity of the crisis...

The Anglo-American multi-trillion dollar global military machine has been defended ad nauseum as essential to protecting free humanity and its progress into a promising future. In reality, it is a criminal facilitator obsessed with pilfering the world’s resources, consolidating power in the hands of feckless feeble minded, short-sighted degenerate financiers, and fostering an unprecedented level of interdependence and vulnerability in every nation brought within their sphere of influence.

One must wonder what sort of world we might be living in today if the trillions of dollars and hundreds of thousands of lives squandered in the last 10 years of war profiteering in the Middle East, were instead used to push real education, technological research and development, and real tangible technological progress. Not only would we have sources of power that could replace dangerous and antiquated power plants like the 40 year old Fukushima reactors, but we as Americans might have a naval fleet actually capable of protecting the “free world” from real threats like the one unfolding off the east coast of Japan’s Fukushima prefecture.

Instead, the US fleet is stretched globally involved in a myriad of meddling geopolitical gambits, many of which were intentionally engineered and initiated by corporate-serving policy wonks in Washington and London. Even as Japan drowns, burns, melts-down, evacuates, and workers engage in suicide missions to mitigate the unprecedented disaster unfolding, Washington and London leadership obsessively pursue their pet projects worldwide...

...In this case, Japan, mired in a catastrophe that very well endangers the US itself is in dire need of any and all assistance, an effort the Secretary of State Hillary Clinton should direct her entire, undivided attention to. Instead, Secretary Hillary Clinton is wasting time in Paris consorting with foreign backed Libyan rebels trying to overthrow the government of a sovereign nation...

UPDATE: It is important to stress that 40 years’ worth of deadly spent fuel rods that would have been blown sky high by the blasts were stored in the roof of the facilities you see devastated in these images. See our article for more on this urgent aspect of the story...

Spent Cool Rods Dry And Dangerous? Where? In The Air? In Pieces On The Ground?

(Updated)

Where is the top floor of Reactor 4? They say the spent cool rods there are dry and thus dangerous. BUT THERE IS NO TOP FLOOR ANYMORE. It blew up in a mushroom cloud you comatose media. It's not there anymore, get it?

From The New York Times.


Even as workers race to prevent the radioactive cores of the damaged nuclear reactors in Japan from melting down, concerns are growing that nearby pools holding spent fuel rods could pose an even greater danger.

The pools, which sit on the top level of the reactor buildings and keep spent fuel submerged in water, have lost their cooling systems and the Japanese have been unable to take emergency steps because of the multiplying crises.




Ok, let's have a look at some pictures of the reactors again.

Here are Reactors 3 and 4. You can clearly see that the upper half of Reactor 3 is completely destroyed. This is the reactor where it seems obvious that the control rods probably went up in the giant explosion. Reactor 4 also shows considerable to damage to the area around where the control rods should be.


(photo: The Daily Mail)


Here is Reactor 1. As someone pointed out in a comment, you could make the case that in this reactor the spent fuel pool might still be intact, however damage is certainly possible.



At the very least it seems that in Reactor 3, the rods blew up. They must be scattered in the explosion. Maybe in Reactor 4 as well.

What is not mentioned is that an X-ray is exposure measured in one instant, whereas in this case the irradiation goes on for hour, after hour, after hour. And some other unpleasant news: NTT DOCOMO has announced it will limit up to 80% of voice calls in neighboring Chiba and Ibaraki prefectures, and up to 50% in Tokyo.

'Don't listen to the Japanese government': Aussie expat tells of Fukushima chaos

From The Sydney Morning Herald

At least 750 workers were evacuated yesterday morning when another explosion ruptured the inner containment building at Reactor No. 2 at the Dai-ichi plant.

The explosion released a surge of radiation 800 times more intense than the recommended hourly exposure limit in Japan.

But Mr Gregoric said some people were still in the dark about the threat in Fukushima.

"Even some people have not left Fukushima city, which is one of the worst hit," he said.

"I still know people who haven't left Sendai because they just don't have information.

"The most important thing now is accurate reporting, accurate reporting and information, and honesty, and all those three things are lacking."

He said residents were queueing for four hours to get water, petrol had run out and there were rolling electricity cuts,

After weighing up his options, Mr Gregoric decided to leave Japan and was due to fly out of Tokyo on a Qantas flight at 8pm yesterday.

Tuesday, March 15, 2011

With Japanese authorities confirming that the third blast at Fukushima’s stricken nuclear plant caused radioactive particles to be released directly into the atmosphere, localized winds are blowing the radiation towards Tokyo, causing many to flee the capital, but the longer term trajectory of upper atmosphere prevailing winds will still send any potential radiation cloud towards the U.S. west coast.



Following a third explosion at the plant as well as a fire in another reactor, radioactive material is now leaking directly into the atmosphere at a rate of 400 milliseverts per hour, according to The International Atomic Energy Agency. Anyone who is exposed to more than 100 milliseverts a year risks contracting cancer...


If the radiation leak is significant enough not to be dispersed over the Pacific Ocean, it will take roughly seven days to reach the United States.

Fourth Explosion, Nuclear Catastrophe Continues.

Cover Up Of Fukushima Chain Reaction Underway

From Prison Planet.

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...

Second Massive Explosion At Fukushima

Reuters is reporting that "a fresh explosion at Japan's quake-stricken Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power complex on Monday is unlikely to have led to a large escape of radioactivity, the government said."

I find that very hard to believe. Either this all looks much worse then it is, or the world public is being deceived on a massive scale.

Can seemingly absurd claims that the reactor remains intact beneath this massive explosion be taken seriously?

This second explosion looks even worse then the first and seems to almost form a mushroom cloud. It's hard to believe that there aren't massive amounts of radiation being leaked here. However, we should search for expert opinions that would support this suspicion.

Tracking the fallout and falsehoods at Fukushima

From Crikey


By Ben Sandilands

Almost 48 hours since the re-rated magnitude 9 earthquake and following tsunami ravaged a large area of Honshu Island NE of Tokyo the weasel words from its nuclear industry have given way to some appalling realities.

The Tokyo electric company has lost control of a total of seven reactors, four in the Fukushima Daini plant, and three in the Fukushima Daiichi plant, one of which exploded yesterday.

It is the second plant at Daiichi which has been the focus of most attention given the blast that removed an outer wall from its No 1 unit yesterday afternoon, and admissions within recent hours that its No 3 unit is ‘probably’ experiencing partial meltdown because of the failure of its fail safe emergency cooling system, putting it in the same parlous state as that assigned to the No 2 Daiichi unit yesterday.

However this afternoon Tokyo Electric said that it was trying to ‘gain control’ over the four reactors at its physically separate Fukushima Daini site. A water condensate system used to supplement the cooling system at Fukushima Daini Unit 1 stopped working when temperatures reached 100 degrees Celsius early in the crisis, the company has finally disclosed.

Tokyo Electric also announced that it would carry out controlled releases to ease pressure in the containments of all four units at Fukushima Daini. This is the same process that was being used at Daiichi 1 before the outer wall of its reactor block was destroyed by a violent explosion attributed officially to a build up of hydrogen gas. It is the same process now underway at the other two Daiichi reactors as well as the four at Daini...

...On Saturday nuclear industry apologists in the western media said that the situation in Japan would only be serious if such desperate measures as flooding the reactor cores with sea water occurred.

Sea water drowning of the No 1 Daiichi reactor has been confirmed, and there are references by Tokyo Electric this afternoon to sea water being used in other reactors as the water injection systems which use high pressure water used for fire fighting emergencies is for some reason no longer available or effective.

The drowning of the reactors, as well as references to introducing boric acid to the cores mean that the power company no longer expects to use them in the future given the damage that will be done to them. In fact the Daiichi plant’s 40 year licences are due to expire in May this year. The media in Japan says it is unknown if there was an intention or application pending for the Daiichi licences to be renewed, of if the plant was intended to be decommissioned.

The submerging of reactor cores with sea water means that no further attempt to use control rods as part of the normal process of moderating reactor activity will be made. It also explains the relevance of references yesterday to unspecified damage to the fuel rods, as fuel rod breakages or deformation would prevent the use of control rods.

Those reactors in which Tokyo Electric is trying to prevent further meltdown or atmospheric combustion of the fuel rods by dousing them under sea water are by definition, in a state of uncontrolled nuclear activity that will require massive physical intervention to end, or to securely entomb.

Could This All Be Some Kind of 3/11?



The following is speculation, not fact or even news.

I don't want to go off into bizarre speculation, but the date of the Japan disaster is 3/11/2011

That is a little to close for comfort to 9/11/2001.

Anyway I'm not into numerology, but if there is some false flag element to this, that would point in that direction.

I thought it odd also that the explosion happened right after Hillary proclaimed the U.S. had sent in some "really important coolant." This is reminding me of Haliburton doing those funny operations before the Gulf Oil Disaster.

On one of the news broadcasts I did hear that Fukushima is one of the largest, or maybe even the largest, concentrated area of nuclear energy production in the world.

Then we have this bizarre map which probably is disinfo and has not been confirmed showing apocalyptic levels of radiation hitting the west coast. Probably just BS. Let's certainly hope so. In any case this disaster is looking to be much worse then the mainstream has been letting on in any case. I think the worst case here however is far less then this map seems to suggest.

That central Tokyo has turned into a ghost town with people walking around in masks is not surprising however.



Looks to be an interesting weekend.

Fukushima Could Be Ten TImes Worse Then Chernobyl

Risk of Nuclear Catastrophe Escalates in Japan – ‘Worse than Chernobyl’

From Forbes.


“In addition to the reactor cores, the storage pool for highly radioactive irradiated nuclear fuel is also at risk. The pool cooling water must be continuously circulated. Without circulation, the still thermally hot irradiated nuclear fuel in the storage pools will begin to boil off the cooling water. Within a day or two, the pool’s water could completely boil away. Without cooling water, the irradiated nuclear fuel could spontaneously combust in an exothermic reaction. Since the storage pools are not located within containment, a catastrophic radioactivity release to the environment could occur. Up to 100 percent of the volatile radioactive Cesium-137 content of the pools could go up in flames and smoke, to blow downwind over large distances. Given the large quantity of irradiated nuclear fuel in the pool, the radioactivity release could be worse than the Chernobyl nuclear reactor catastrophe of 25 years ago.”
