Final Warning Struck in the Eyes – Residents hit by scrapnel from detonating explosives on TI

Video by Caraol Harvey Investigative Reporter

The Navy is currently exploding ordinance including grenades and Japanese mortars in the radioactive waste location at Treasure Island in violation of Navy regulations on proximity of civilians to the explosions. The Navy freely admitted that they were too close to residents in the recent RAB meeting on December 8th where they admitted to using sandbags and shipping containers to try to block the effects of the explosions from the civilians but the Civilians have been hit by the blast and are injured.

In a report on December 8th for the RAB Meeting the Navy mentioned they were exploding ordinance that was too close to the residents but they were mitigating that by placing shipping containers in the path of the explosions. but the shipping containers are not in the way and tehy are needlessly exposing the civilians to the explosions, violating navy regulations on munitions. The Navy doesn’t care, they have no one to supervise this fiasco:

The Navy found a plume of arsenic and are saying it is a natural formation of arsenic in the soil. The Entire Island is manmade, there is nothing natural there, everything there was placed there within the past 80 to 85 years.

The Arsenic plume is Lewisite, a chemical weapon that is usually mixed with Mustard Gas to have a hideous effect on enemy troops. The Navy has a history of considering civilians to be the enemy. Their total disregard for the safety of the people of Honolulu with the whole Red Hill petroium contamination disaster of the past month where Honolulu’s water supply is contaminated with Navy Oil that is stored above their aquifer. The Navy knew about this in 1982 and even documented the contamination but refused to do anything about it.

Now 1/4 of Honolulu is without water up from teh 1/8th a few weeks ago. The Navy secretary got mad at the people of Honolulu saying that she had been in combat and this was nothing compared to that! She has since backpeddled on that admission but it shows the total disregard for civilians.

Location of the USS Pandemonium:

The Arsenic in the Meadow corresponds with the location of the first ship mock-up the USS Pandemonium where the Navy conducted chemical, biological and radiological testing using live ammo. Lewisite is a chemical weapon that degrades into Arsenic and Acyteline and was found all over this site.

Treasure Island San Francisco lost its Nuclear Regulatory Commission License over incompetency in 1985

In Reference to the Radiation Safety Officer (RSO) at Treasure Island, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) Inspector wrote the following and the actual document is below: “I explained that it did not appear that he had any experience with radioactive materials” Immediately after this inspection the base sent its Cesium 137 to Oakland for disposal, giving up the ship! They would return a year later with all the forms done and with a new staff.

NRC Conversation over phone on the qualifications of Treasure islands Radiological Officer and it turns out he had no direct experience with radiation. After this call Treasure Island surrendered its radiological sources for disposal in Oakland,

Here is the surrender of the material to Oakland:

NRC Violations

Treasure Island Navy Base violated NRC Regulations over many years, not checking the devices for leaks and they ignored the NRC until it got to the point where the NAVY had to surrender its Cesium 137 for its training devices in Building 343 in 1985 (above).

The next year the Navy came back with a full staff with all the qualifications necessary to do the job, but up to that point it was all in the hands of people who were not qualified and today we see the result, radioactive materials buried all over the island.

Note the US Treasury also had a facility on Treasure Island that had licenses for radioactive foils, foils just like the ones found under the housing at Treasure Island and it too had NRC Violations, and i will write that in a separate article.

Navy Radiological Affairs Support Office Inspection of Treasure Island 15 April 1974

RADIOLOGICAL AFFAIRS SUPPORT OFFIC E
REPORT OF TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE VISIT
TO NAVAL SCHOOLS COMMAND, TREASURE
ISLAND, SAN FRANCISCO, -CALIFORNIA
15 APRIL 1974

Whereas the Navy denies that there were no radiological materials used on Treasure Island despite finding 90 REMS per year, this report in its entirety indicates the use of several radioactive isotopes in the training including Plutonium and Cesium137. Someone in the Navy is lying and the result is homeless people living inside the Radioactive Isotope Vault and other radioactive areas. The signs warning of the radiation depended on electricity and so they are not present today, neither are the regular radiation signs that should be present. this negligence is a violation of the law. the Navy has to answer to that law!
