…(A)fter…the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan…assist(ed) with earthquake rescue operations off the coast of Japan in 2011…crew members…are coming down with all sorts of radiation-related illnesses…
It looks as though the on-board…systems that take salt out of seawater to make it drinkable…for the crew… were taking in radioactive water…before anyone realized there was a massive radiation spill into the ocean.
Charles Bonner, an attorney representing sailors from the USS Ronald Reagan, said “the crew members were not only going to the rescue by…jumping into the water (for) rescuing people…but they were drinking desalinated sea water, bathing in it, until finally the captain of the USS Ronald Reagan alarmed people that they were encountering high levels of radiation.”
Bonner says that as a result of this exposure, the 51 sailors have come down with a host of medical problems. “They have testicular cancer, they have thyroid cancers, they have leukemias, they have rectal and gynecological bleeding, a host of problems that they did not have before…(P)eople are going blind, pilots who had perfect eyesight…now have tumors on the brain. And it’s only been 3 years since they went in.” Bonner pointed out that these servicemen and women are young people, ages 21, 22, 23 years old and no one in their family had ever suffered any of these kinds of illnesses before.
At present, 51 sailors from the USS Ronald Reagan are named as Plaintiffs in a lawsuit against the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) and Bonner says he anticipates adding twenty additional sailors soon…because “The Japanese government is in a major conspiracy with TEPCO to hide and conceal the true facts.”
UPDATE: DECEMBER 14, 2013 2:18 PM EST: …(T)he former Prime Minister of Japan, Naoto Kan, who was in office when the Fukushima disaster took place, told assembled journalists. “…(T)he first meltdown occurred 5 hours after the earthquake.” This means that the government of Japan KNEW there was horrific radiation being released, but did not tell the U.S. Navy, (who) had deployed the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan to assist with rescue efforts…
