Reuters ^ | 03/11/11

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.

Another Winning The Future moment?

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.

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.

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.

Hilldabeast is an idiot, that we know here at FR.
The coolant story seemed bogus right from the start ... there was no way we could react that quickly. Coolant that nuclear reactors use is not lying around stockpiled for emergencies by the U.S. anywhere close to Japan. Guam possibly but unlikely. Hillary is on one of her fantasy flights ... i.e., the dodging bullets story at the airport in Bosnia.

The Japanese physics guy on GMA this morning said that it was a failure of the back up system to release coolant water whose sole purpose is to absorb the heat from the reactor.....

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..........

If you want to kill the resurgence of a "nuclear option" in the US, there's nothing more useful than the melt-down of an ancient reactor design.

“Regarding the question of whether US Air Force delivered assistance to a nuclear plant in Japan, I’m told that ultimately the Japanese Government handled the situation on its own,” State Department spokeswoman Julie Reside said in an email. For its part, the Air Force said it had no indication that it had delivered coolant or any other supplies to the stricken power plant.

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!

Why didn’t they just create coolant from water, like the majority of nuclear power plants in the free world?

When I heard this report, since it was "coolant", it must have been a
liquid sodium cooled core, and the US was replacing the backup supply.

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.
