JAPAN LEARNS: BETTER TO BE OBAMA'S PIG THAN HIS ALLY
The administration disagrees publicly and unjustifiably with the Japanese reading of the numbers and the instructions its gives its own people.
"There's a big difference between Americans in Japan and Japanese in Japan right now. And that's that the Americans in Japan can go home," Acton said. Over half a million Japanese are homeless, displaced and"Japanese authorities have to factor that into their plans," he said.
"If they extend the evacuation zone and evacuate more people but they're not able to feed those people or shelter those people, then it's probably better for those people to stay where they are and inside their houses -- which is actually better radiation protection than it might first appear."
