BLITZER’S BLOG: Has Obama lived up to his 2008 priorities?

Nebraska nuclear plant officials reject comparisons to Fukushima

The rumors are patently false, they say, and it's frustrating to have to deal with them while also battling a genuine crisis.

These officials are also acutely aware of comparisons to the catastrophic earthquake and tsunami in Japan in March, which crippled a nuclear power plant there, leading to the worst nuclear accident since Chernobyl in 1986.
