The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry

The harsh facts on U.S.S. Reagan’s sailors affected by Fukushima radiation

Is Nuclear Experimentation Fascism? OpEdNews   1/22/2014 By  (about the author) “…the crew of the U.S.S. Reagan. The U.S.S. Reagan was exposed to radiation after being redirected towards Japan to provide support immediately after the massive Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami off the coast of Japan.

According to an article in the New York Post, Senior Chief Michael Sebourn, a radiation-decontamination officer who tested the aircraft carrier for radiation found that “levels were incredibly dangerous and at one point, the radiation in the air measured 300 times higher than what was considered safe.” The article continues: “The former personal trainer has suffered a series of ailments, starting with severe nosebleeds and headaches and continuing with debilitating weakness” has lost 60 percent of the power in the right side of his body and his limbs have visibly shrunk.” As Senior Chief Michael Sebourn stated, “I’ve had four MRIs, and I’ve been to 20 doctors” No one can figure out what is wrong.” He has since retired from the Navy after 17 years of service.

And he is not alone. According to The Post, “crew members on the aircraft carrier and a half-dozen other support ships are battling cancers, thyroid disease, uterine bleeding and other ailments.” Of the 5,000 sailors on board, at least 70 have contracted some form of radiation sickness, and of those, “at least half” are suffering from some form of cancer,” said lawyer, Paul Garner, who is representing the sailors in a lawsuit against the operators of the Fukushima Daiichi energy plant. “We’re seeing leukemia, testicular cancer and unremitting gynecological bleeding requiring transfusions and other intervention,” said Garner.

In a Voice of Russia report, Mr. Garner elaborated: “it seems that there’s too many people at the same place at the same time without any family background or any reason to believe that they had these issues to now show up with these significant cancers and beyond. So we feel that time will tell in many instances”. especially, because they all had physicals and were all in top health.”

Navy sailor Lindsay Cooper, who was also present on the U.S.S. Reagan, stated that crew members suffered from excruciating diarrhea at the time. “People were s-“-tting themselves in the hallways,” Cooper recalled. “Two weeks after that, my lymph nodes in my neck were swollen. By July, my thyroid shut down.”

When asked about the U.S.S. Reagan’s ability to detect radiation early, sailor Cooper stated “we have a multimillion-dollar radiation-detection system, but” it takes time to be set up and activated”. She went on to describe that after being exposed, “we couldn’t go anywhere. Japan didn’t want us in port, Korea didn’t want us, Guam turned us away. We floated in the water for two and a half months” until Thailand took the stricken sailors in……..http://www.opednews.com/articles/Is-Nuclear-Experimentation-by-Ethan-Indigo-Smith-Fukushima_Nuclear-Cover-up_Nuclear-Meltdown_Nuclear-Waste-140122-627.html

  1. A nuclear decontamination Officer Senior Chief Sebourn ; was not following proper protocalls and becomes stricken; and what qualifications and years of service go into becoming such an officer.
    So far in this whole USS REGAN radiation episode there shows a pattern of eithrr gross incompetancy by very senior ; far higher up than this punk officer Seborn, or what we have here is one moreUS military Scientific Test or Experiment using our militar personell as the test subjects.
    It is not concievable in the slightest degree that within seconds of the release of radiation that our military scientific people did not know what radiation levels were and even the composition of the steam and debris as we have multiple overlapping satelites constantly over flying.
    A blast of any even tho it is underground by N. KOREA pakistan and Ndia is immediately picked up and auto fallout patters are soon in the hands of intrlligence people.
    Our satelites since mid 80’sbcan pick up tritium of watches in a ships hold.
    I say deliberate experiment and a bunch of dumb as rovks naval personel.
    This is what defends the military from any criticism.
    A combination of both is most likely, and what with our upcoming proxy wars against China it is not out of possability to practice at any opportunity.
