  • Japan’s nuclear emergency agency goes further in describing the extent of damage
  • The Fukushima Daiichi plant was badly affected by an earthquake and tsunami in March
  • Tokyo Electric Power Co. has avoided calling the event a meltdown

Tokyo (CNN) — Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant experienced full meltdowns at three reactors in the wake of an earthquake and tsunami in March, the country’s Nuclear Emergency Response Headquarters said Monday.

The nuclear group’s new evaluation, released Monday, goes further than previous statements in describing the extent of the damage caused by an earthquake and tsunami on March 11.

The announcement will not change plans for how to stabilize the Fukushima Daiichi plant, the agency said.

Reactors 1, 2 and 3 experienced a full meltdown, it said.

The plant’s owner, Tokyo Electric Power Co., admitted last month that nuclear fuel rods in reactors 2 and 3 probably melted during the first week of the nuclear crisis.

It had already said fuel rods at the heart of reactor No. 1 melted almost completely in the first 16 hours after the disaster struck. The remnants of that core are now sitting in the bottom of the reactor pressure vessel at the heart of the unit and that vessel is now believed to be leaking.

A “major part” of the fuel rods in reactor No. 2 may have melted and fallen to the bottom of the pressure vessel 101 hours after the earthquake and tsunami that crippled the plant, Tokyo Electric said May 24.

The same thing happened within the first 60 hours at reactor No. 3, the company said, in what it called its worst-case scenario analysis, saying the fuel would be sitting at the bottom of the pressure vessel in each reactor building.

But Tokyo Electric at the same time released a second possible scenario for reactors 2 and 3, one that estimated a full meltdown did not occur. In that scenario, the company estimated the fuel rods may have broken but may not have completely melted.

Temperature data showed the two reactors had cooled substantially in the more than two months since the incident, Tokyo Electric said in May.

The earthquake and tsunami knocked out cooling systems at Fukushima Daiichi, causing the three operating reactors to overheat. That compounded a natural disaster by spewing radioactive material into the atmosphere.

Tokyo Electric avoided using the term “meltdown,” and says it was keeping the remnants of the core cool. But U.S. experts interviewed by CNN after the company’s announcement in May said that while it may have been containing the situation, the damage had already been done.

“On the basis of what they showed, if there’s not fuel left in the core, I don’t know what it is other than a complete meltdown,” said Gary Was, a University of Michigan nuclear engineering professor and CNN consultant. And given the damage reported at the other units, “It’s hard to imagine the scenarios can differ that much for those reactors.”

A massive hydrogen explosion — a symptom of the reactor’s overheating — blew the roof off the No. 1 unit the day after the earthquake, and another hydrogen blast ripped apart the No. 3 reactor building two days later. A suspected hydrogen detonation within the No. 2 reactor is believed to have damaged that unit on March 15.

Top Bilderberger: Eurozone Collapse Threatens Global Currency Agenda

Harvard Professor reveals globalists are panic-stricken about Greece debt default threat to survival of single currency

A top Bilderberg member has revealed that globalists are panic-stricken about a potential eurozone crisis caused by a Greek debt default that could precipitate the collapse of the Euro and also derail the wider agenda for multi-regional currency unions and eventually a global currency system.

Appearing on the Alex Jones Show yesterday, veteran Bilderberg sleuth Jim Tucker said that the Euro will again be the subject of crisis talks at this years globalist confab in San Moritz, Switzerland, with power brokers desperate to rescue the single currency from a collapse that numerous financial analysts see on the horizon.

“They’re afraid of the Euro going down and afraid the Euro will simply disappear,” said Tucker, noting that several European countries’ intention to abandon nuclear power after the Fukushima disaster could cause a crisis for the single currency.

During last year’s Bilderberg conference in Sitges Spain, when the Euro was in free fall following the austerity riots in Greece, globalists were panicked that the single currency could face a total collapse.

Although the Euro has made significant gains against the crumbling US dollar over the past year, many financial analysts are still predicting that the single currency faces a massive crisis that will threaten its very existence. Indeed, just last month representatives of the European Commission held an emergency crisis meeting following reports that Greece was considering exiting the eurozone and creating its own currency.

The European Central Bank’s exposure to struggling European economies could send the ECB into bankruptcy, especially if Greece defaults on its debt which many see as a likely scenario. According to ratings agency Moody’s, “Greece is 50% likely to default on or restructure its debts in the next five years.”

Writing in the Financial Times, which is routinely represented at Bilderberg though refuses to report on the meeting, Bilderberg member and Harvard Professor Kenneth Rogoff reveals how elitists are deeply concerned that a “eurozone collapse” will derail the wider agenda for multi-regional currencies like the Amero, which would act as a unified currency under the North American Union.

“The euro experiment has also brought us to a crossroads in the whole international monetary system,” writes Rogoff. “Will our grandchildren inherit a world with a huge number of national currencies, or a very small number of multi-country currencies?”

Bilderberg are so protective of the Euro because it is a powerful symbolic pillar of their agenda for global government. The Euro was also a brainchild of the Bilderberg Group itself, with Bilderberg-chairman Étienne Davignon admitting last year that the single currency was formulated by Bilderberg in the 1990′s.

Indeed, The foundations for the EU and ultimately the Euro single currency were laid by the secretive Bilderberg Group in the mid-1950’s. Bilderberg’s own leaked documents prove that the agenda to create a European common market and a single currency was formulated by Bilderberg in 1955.

As we first reported in 2003, a BBC investigative team were allowed to access Bilderberg files which confirmed that the EU and the Euro were the brainchild of Bilderberg.

Tucker also said that the globalists were intent on prolonging the recession until at least 2012 and also keeping gas prices high. They have resolved to level the globe economically, not by raising up poorer countries to western standards but lowering the standard of living in richer nations.

Tucker also noted how a theme that became apparent during the last two conferences has reared it head again, with Bilderberg furious at the fact that they are meeting more and more resistance from an increasing number of demonstrators and independent journalists throwing a spotlight on their get-togethers.

As we reported last year, an astounding exchange between two Bilderberg members overheard by London Guardian journalist Charlie Skelton revealed that the elitists saw people with income as “a threat” to their agenda, as they decried the fact that protesters could actually afford to travel to the different countries in which they meet every year.

One in four US hackers ‘is an FBI informer’

The FBI and US secret service have used the threat of prison to create an army of informers among online criminals

The underground world of computer hackers has been so thoroughly infiltrated in the US by the FBI and secret service that it is now riddled with paranoia and mistrust, with an estimated one in four hackers secretly informing on their peers, a Guardian investigation has established.

Cyber policing units have had such success in forcing online criminals to co-operate with their investigations through the threat of long prison sentences that they have managed to create an army of informants deep inside the hacking community.

In some cases, popular illegal forums used by cyber criminals as marketplaces for stolen identities and credit card numbers have been run by hacker turncoats acting as FBI moles. In others, undercover FBI agents posing as “carders” – hackers specialising in ID theft – have themselves taken over the management of crime forums, using the intelligence gathered to put dozens of people behind bars.

So ubiquitous has the FBI informant network become that Eric Corley, who publishes the hacker quarterly, 2600, has estimated that 25% of hackers in the US may have been recruited by the federal authorities to be their eyes and ears. “Owing to the harsh penalties involved and the relative inexperience with the law that many hackers have, they are rather susceptible to intimidation,” Corley told the Guardian.

“It makes for very tense relationships,” said John Young, who runs Cryptome, a website depository for secret documents along the lines of WikiLeaks. “There are dozens and dozens of hackers who have been shopped by people they thought they trusted.”

The best-known example of the phenomenon is Adrian Lamo, a convicted hacker who turned informant on Bradley Manning, who is suspected of passing secret documents to WikiLeaks. Manning had entered into a prolonged instant messaging conversation with Lamo, whom he trusted and asked for advice. Lamo repaid that trust by promptly handing over the 23-year-old intelligence specialist to the military authorities. Manning has now been in custody for more than a year.

For acting as he did, Lamo has earned himself the sobriquet of Judas and the “world’s most hated hacker”, though he has insisted that he acted out of concern for those he believed could be harmed or even killed by the WikiLeaks publication of thousands of US diplomatic cables.

“Obviously it’s been much worse for him but it’s certainly been no picnic for me,” Lamo has said. “He followed his conscience, and I followed mine.”

The latest challenge for the FBI in terms of domestic US breaches are the anarchistic co-operatives of “hacktivists” that have launched several high-profile cyber-attacks in recent months designed to make a statement. In the most recent case a group calling itself Lulz Security launched an audacious raid on the FBI’s own linked organisation InfraGard. The raid, which was a blatant two fingers up at the agency, was said to have been a response to news that the Pentagon was poised to declare foreign cyber-attacks an act of war.

Lulz Security shares qualities with the hacktivist group Anonymous that has launched attacks against companies including Visa and MasterCard as a protest against their decision to block donations to WikiLeaks. While Lulz Security is so recent a phenomenon that the FBI has yet to get a handle on it, Anonymous is already under pressure from the agency. There were raids on 40 addresses in the US and five in the UK in January, and a grand jury has been hearing evidence against the group in California at the start of a possible federal prosecution.

Kevin Poulsen, senior editor at Wired magazine, believes the collective is classically vulnerable to infiltration and disruption. “We have already begun to see Anonymous members attack each other and out each other’s IP addresses. That’s the first step towards being susceptible to the FBI.”

Barrett Brown, who has acted as a spokesman for the otherwise secretive Anonymous, says it is fully aware of the FBI’s interest. “The FBI are always there. They are always watching, always in the chatrooms. You don’t know who is an informant and who isn’t, and to that extent you are vulnerable.”

    Awesome website, good job! We all need to stand up and support the hackers and any who are at least
    attempting to fight for the right to freedom and real journalism, not privately owned and controlled media in this country.

    If we allow ourselves to stand down and do nothing to defend and support those fighting for us with statements and against big industry and communism in this country, then sadly our children will not know the land that we loved and let go of to a group of criminals who stole OUR money and made themselves rich via corruption.

    All FBI agents in those chat rooms watching and spying on these ones who have the balls to try to do
    what is right and in defending Wiki Leaks too, need to consider their children and families future in this country and world. Why on earth is it okay for a Corporation to be able to basically shut down a website because it’s reporting the truth, and it’s not okay for them to get a dose of their own damn medicine. Let the people speak and hear the truth, that is true freedom, not this organized control and BS most of us do not buy into anyway, hence the gov. now wishes to control the internet. Do they really think we are such idiots to not see what the chit they are doing and whose doing it? The members of these elite groups do need to fear, they are sorely outmatched when you get down to it.

    ALL military and police need to stand down when the SHTF and fight right along with the people for this country. No cowards and traitors need attempt to stop true American’s who oppose this criminal agenda we see playing out by those in secret who seek to rule over us all. Either stand up or shut up, but stand down if your too cowardice to stand with the people for this country.
