(S/FX–SOUND OF SCREECHING BRAKES)

Exemplary?

Sure, I know where they’re coming from.  It probably was “exemplary” in an adminstrative, bureaucratic sense.  Engineers robotically followed management orders, like not using emergency seawater, for example.  Okay.  Still, at the radiation protection level, I’m going with the word “terrible”.  IAEA, how did you find their rad protection efforts?

 “to date, no health effects have been reported in any person as a result of radiation exposure.”

Ah.  No one has picked up 1 to 1.5 Sieverts, have they?  The phrase that springs to mind now is, “damning with faint praise”.

Also, I keep looking for TEPCO’s press release that workers may have gotten more dose than the emergency limits.  No luck so far.

    Reminds me of the scumbag lawyer in Robocop complaining about his client’s criminal charge: “Attempted murder?! It’s not like he killed anyone!”

    Well, it’s a UN minion. Don’t expect them to be remotely useful. I mean, they have lawyers as directors, like that ElBaradei guy.
