Japan: Surveys at Henoko will have to be whitewashed, blogger says

Blogger Jeff writes about increasing tension at Henoko Bay as environmental surveys begin. From first-hand experience, he writes: “Just from seeing the site, I can tell you that these surveys will have to be whitewashed in order to create a viable construction plan. There's just no way to put a new base there […] without devastating impacts.” He also points to an article indicating that, although “[t]he Japanese government claimed that the U.S. didn't tell them about [highly unpopular plans to deploy the V-22 Osprey aircraft,] it has come to light that they've known for at least a decade.”
