Posted on 03/11/2011 3:46:25 PM PST by KevinDavis
(Reuters) - The U.S. military did not provide any coolant for a Japanese nuclear plant affected by a massive earthquake on Friday, U.S. officials said.
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton earlier had said that U.S. Air Force "assets" had delivered "some really important coolant" to a Japanese nuclear power plant.

she snipered it
indeed; I used to make coolant for the fast attack sub I was on.
What did they do, drop it off at the wrong place?
The Secretary of State was just wrong (again)?
Yup, Winning The Future - certainly an appropriate acronym for this administration.
Democrats are incompetent for any crisis except handing out welfare checks paid for by us the working taxpayers.
Fire them all in 2012.
She'll clarify that statement after she gets a fresh bottle of vodka.
Is this the same Hillary Clinton dodging bullets while landing in Afghanistan?
The smartest women in the world doesn’t know coolant from generators.....we’re screwed.
She totally FUBAR’d the middle east. she’s just trying to be relevant. She is as clueless as her leader.
Hillary is an idiot, but since she is a democrat, the MSM would rather label Palin as an idiot instead and any other woman republican. Pelosi also says stupid stuff all day long, but she’s a genius.
That's okay as long as she is monitoring the situation and is deeply concerned..
Hillary Clinton lied????
Since Japan is an island and prone to earthquakes, large and small, it should have been better prepared for emergencies. Granted earthquakes do not give much in the way of warnings. Still given Japan’s history of natural disasters especially earthquakes, it should have been much better prepared. Also, there are many low lying areas in Japan that are especially vulnerable to tsunamis. Another problem is the densely populated areas which many are huddled together. This also poses quite a problem in the event of a natural disaster. My heart goes out to the people of Japan. Having said all that, I can see the late night guys poking fun of this by incorporating footage from the Godzilla movies.
But had it been Iran.........?
Sorry but you’re wrong. Today’s taxpayers aren’t paying their welfare checks...the yet to be born taxpayers will pay it.
This is indicative of the poor job the State Department is doing under the Hildebeast. No way is she up to the task of POTUS.
There is no magical chemical used, just plain old water - H2o. The stuff fish swim in and the stuff that falls from the sky just when you start your annual family picnic..........
Apparently we’re smarter on FR that all the combined might of the US gov.......
UPDATE 4-Japan declares emergency at nuke plant, no radiation leak now

What a nightmare...
"Never let a crisis go to waste."
Yet some people here think that she would have been a better president than the current doofus.
This is kind of ironic in that we have, like, the coolest president ever.
That’s some State Department.
Hillary is clueless.
Very possibly the Worst Sec. of State ever.
Nuclear power’s failure is DEMOCRAT GAIN
Everything is politics to the left.
I make coolant every time I have a beer........
I'm in when I'm out and I'm out when I'm in: Major Major
Hillary Clinton is a Liberal AirHead who Lies Everyday!
She knew Billy was getting his Sex Needs satisfied by Monica, just as he screwed everybody else under the Sun!
Hillary is a Lesbian! Lets be Honest! And Hillary despises MEN! Hillary’s Marriage to Bill the Nose which is a Hoover Vacuum Cleaner is purely Political and a Business Relationship! Hillary chose Webster Hubbell to Father her Politically Required Child.... Remember that Bill Clinton told all of his Rape Victims “NOT TO WORRY, because I am Sterile and Shooting Blanks!”and Not One of his Prostitutes, Opps, Mistresses, has ever occused him of fathering one of their childrens!
Is this why a reporter asked Obama about the delivery of coolant at the press conference today??
Even so, she gets some tough competition from Warren Christopher and Madeline Albright.
Our leaders lie to us repeatedly, and without shame...
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
We need Mayor Nagin, and Gov. Blanko to immediately take charge of this disaster!!
(Where’s the photos of Heineken man plying the streets, with a tub load of Kirin)
Oh who could have known this woman didn’t know her -— from a hole in the ground? I mean really now...
Vodka? I always pictured her & Monica’s ex-boyfriend as Ripple types. Thunderbird in a pinch.
Why didn’t they just create coolant from water, like the majority of nuclear power plants in the free world?
Can you blame her? Just just read today that the intern that was blowing her husband all the while in the Whitehouse still yearns for him!
Foggy Bottom strike again.
There is a reason nuke plants are built near water -DUH!
The coolant is already there -no 'bringing' needed!
Hillary has yet again proven she is another clueless yet highly educated leftist bureaucrat.
Well, that is an incredibly low bar. Nothing in this episode changes that, for me.
Just another Clinton lie...
Hillary is also in way above her pay grade. What a bunch of Maroons.
Please! Tell me that picture is photo-shopped!
Neither Hillary or Obama are competent enough to take the 3 AM phone call.
