TVNL MUST READ: NRC staff criticize official's handling of Fort Calhoun

The senior federal regulator leading the inspection of a troubled nuclear reactor near Omaha is the target of a complaint to Congress over his handling of the reactor's problems.

A letter on Nuclear Regulatory Commission letterhead alleges that Troy Pruett pushed staff to downplay problems at the Fort Calhoun Nuclear Station and created a “corrosive environment.”

“These actions (by Pruett) have resulted in a chilled environment that dissuades inspectors from identifying safety issues that may be challenged by regional management,” the letter states.

Furthermore, the letter says the bonus system for senior regulators is a “significant deterrent” to aggressive work by subordinates.

That's because the bonus policy penalizes senior officials whose findings against utilities get overturned on appeal.

TVNL Comment: The people who put these policies in place are terrorists of the worst kind. They are, in essence, nuclear threats to humanity and if this happened in China, they would be, rightfully so, put to death.
