Palast: Seismic testing, that is earthquake proofing, at nuclear plants worldwide, is systematically faked. They’ve done it all over the United States and they’ve done it in Japan.
At ~8:45 in
Palast: They were not inundated, there is not one picture of a diesel generator wet, let alone flooded.
It’s just not there. It doesn’t exist. It’s phony, it’s a lie.
It’s a complete fairy tale that you believe these things would work in America.

Host: I just want to reiterate this because it’s very important.
We’ve got the earthquake damaging the core in the reactor and that shouldn’t have happened. And the reason that happened was the seismic qualification documents were faked by the people who built it.
Then we’ve got the diesel engines failing predictably, not because of the wave, but because they were idle, being switched on and expected to run at full speed, but they couldn’t.
