Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
A lot of people have missed that the supposedly open Western democratic free market state of Japan has actually been more secretive and less concerned with the fate of its citizens than the Stalinist socialist etc Soviet Union.

More secretive, yes. Less concerned with the fate of its citizens... that's hard to argue when you consider the sort of hazmat gear the Soviets sent their cleanup crews in with (or not).

Well - possibly.

One never knows if rumours like these are true.

But when TEPCO has such a reliable record of spin and terminological inexactitude, almost anything could be going on.

It's also interesting that the last radiation survey focused on external sources only and apparently made no attempt to check for internal contamination.
