11/20 -- NEWS LINKS

P5+1 is meeting with Iran in Geneva today to discuss lifting of some sanctions in exchange for Iran halting some of its nuclear program. This meeting may be an exercise in futility as reports emerged this past week that the Obama administration had already been in secret, backdoor negotiations with Iran for the past year, an allegation the White House is denying. Well, all we can say, is if you believe that then we have a healthcare website we would like to sell you.

As the meeting is getting underway to discuss a NUCLEAR issue, workers at the crippled NUCLEAR reactor at Fukushima have started their attempt to remove damaged fuel rods, a process that is described as necessary and as one of the "most dangerous times that the site will have experienced since the tsunami that swept past its walls in March of 2011." The pool holding the damaged fuel rods has become quite unstable and could undergo further disastrous consequences should a strong earthquake hit the region.

As was pointed out a few days ago, Comet ISON was so supposed to brighten by the 20th, and she did -- she was reported as naked-eye visible yesterday, on the 19th. Suspicious Observers is pointing out two things about ISON -- there was an X class solar flare yesterday that was NOT earth directed but ISON directed, and ISON has had yet another major outburst. Neither event is necessarily a problem, just noting something that has happened.
