“Completely and Utterly Fail in an Earthquake”
The Fukushima story you didn’t hear on CNN
I’ve seen a lot of sick stuff in my career, but this was sick on a new level.

Wiesel was very upset. He seemed very nervous. Very agitated. . . . In fact, the plant was riddled with problems that, no way on earth, could stand an earth- quake. The team of engineers sent in to inspect found that most of these components could “completely and utterly fail” during an earthquake.

Why have these sailors and marines medical records been removed from permanent tracking. Criminal implications galore. This should be all over mainstream media.
