Apparently the Japanese have been taking notes about how Cheney operates.

Secrecy above citizen safety:

KASHIWAZAKI, Japan (AP) -- A strong earthquake shook Japan's northwest coast Monday, setting off a fire at the world's most powerful nuclear power plant and causing a reactor to spill radioactive water into the sea - an accident not reported to the public for hours.

The temblor killed at least nine people and injured more than 1,000 as it toppled hundreds of wooden homes and tore 3-foot-wide fissures in the ground. Highways and bridges buckled, leaving officials struggling to get emergency supplies into the region.
