Subject: President Jimmy Carter/Admiral Hyman Rickover/3 Mile Island Cover-Up

Extraordinarily dangerous technology which just here in the USA has killed [and will continue to kill] 9 million people according to Dr. Ernest Sternglass, Professor Emeritus of Radiological Physics at the University of Pittsburgh and Dr. Jay Gould, E.P.A. Member under President Jimmy Carter, in their book Deadly Deceit: Low-Level Radiation, High Level Cover-Up [Publisher 4 Walls, 8 Windows in New York].

Since nuclear power is so deadly here, it is deadly wherever it exists -- be that Japan, China, Indonesia, France, etc. Clearly it must be abolished. In addition to its inherently murderous nature, the waste problem, possibility of meltdown or excursion due to human error, earthquake [particularly relevant in Japan & Indonesia], war, or storm -- nuclear power is felt to be so dangerous that the heart of the accident at 3 Mile Island in 1979 has been and continues to be covered up and lied about to both the USA public and world public. Here are the basic facts. Please act on them by calling your local TV, radio, & newspaper outlets and demand that they investigate and write/tell the truth. Also, call, write, fax, & E-mail former President Jimmy Carter and demand that he finally tell the world the truth about the accident and cover-up at 3 Mile Island. President carter can be reached at:

The basic cover-up is described by Jane Rickover, Admiral Hyman G. Rickover's daughter-in-law in this signed, notarized statement:

"In May, 1983, my father-in-law, Admiral Hyman G. Rickover, told me that at the time of the Three Mile Island nuclear reactor accident, a full report was commissioned by President Jimmy Carter. He [my father-in-law] said that the report, if published in its entirety, would have destroyed the civilian nuclear power industry because the accident at Three Mile Island was infinitely more dangerous than was ever made public. He told me that he had used his enormous personal influence with President Carter to persuade him to publish the report only in a highly "diluted" form. The President himself had originally wished the full report to be made public.
          In November, 1985, my father-in-law told me that he had come to deeply regret his action in persuading President Carter to suppress the most alarming aspects of that report."

[Signed] Jane Rickover                    

          Jane Rickover appeared before me and swore as to the truth of the above statement.

          I spoke with Jane Rickover twice in depth. She verified the absolute truthfulness of this signed, notarized statement. She also told me that Dan Rather, the CBS-TV news anchor for many years and then with the famous American TV show "60 Minutes" called her and her husband and sounded very interested in looking into this story. They never heard from him again. Obviously, Rather was told by his corporate masters just how far serious investigative journalism was allowed to go. Again, please E-mail, fax, call, write President Carter at the above addresses & Phone/Fax numbers and demand that he finally come clean with the facts.

          Another alarming piece of evidence in this cover-up was sent to me and President Carter recently by Dr. Rosalie Bertell, President of the International Institute of Concern for Public Health in Toronto. Dr. Bertell states in her February 10, 1998 E-mail to President Carter:

"There is only one large blot on your record, which distresses those of us who respect you, and that is the cover up of the Three Mile Island Accident, and in particular the serious health damage done to the people who lived nearby. I was on the Citizen's Advisory Council to the Blue Ribbon Panel which you [President Carter] established to look into the accident. I, and indeed the whole panel, was dismissed when I asked the implications of having a staff cleared for security and a Blue Ribbon Panel which was not cleared, with the exception of Dr. Kemmeny who had worked on the Manhattan Project. The staff was able to withhold any information they wanted from the Panel under the guise of "classified for national security." Another Advisory Council Member asked who was in charge during the accident. These two questions were enough to cause the dissolution of the entire panel. In fact, Dr. Kemmeny even stated publicly that we had never been invited to Washington (although the Panel paid our air fare)."

          I also spoke recently with Dr. Bertell who verified the validity of her E-mail to President Carter. She has not heard from President Carter. The only way she or the rest of the world will is by having ALL OF YOU DELUGE PRESIDENT CARTER RIGHT NOW. ACT IMMEDIATELY! E-mail, fax, call, write President Carter at:


          Best regards,
                                  Bill Smirnow

P.S. Anyone wanting a copy of the signed, notarized statement by Jane Rickover can get it by faxing me at: 516-421-0818. Please make sure that your return fax# is BOLD and CLEAR.
