MR. McDERMOTT: There is one other nugget of information, people might know people.

There were 40 individuals from GE that were actually asked, at this facility, taking part in the refueling of the three units.

We understand that out of the 40 people, four were contaminated, but the State Department and GE are working to pull them back to Tokyo and to get them whatever assistance they need to get back to the States.

    .Didn’t the GE workers stay at the site to help control the melt down. They where the designers and or the manufacture, they should be of great help. So why have we not heard from them, did they run away knowing that millions where in danger? If they did they should punished like men in the army are for cowering in battle. They could have prevented one or more plants from blowing up
