George Washington University Law Professor, specialist on environmental crimes Lead Attorney for Rocky Flats Grand Jurors
Tomorrow is August 9th, the 51st anniversary of the U.S. atomic bombing of Nagasaki. Toshihiko Sto is a survivor of that attack. For this Nagasaki Anniversary, we’re taking a look at nuclear issues in this country and an unusual story about truth and justice and, perhaps, the American way. 18 jurors from the Rocky Flats Grand Jury are urging a U.S. district court judge to let them speak. Four years ago, the jurors wanted to bring criminal indictments against a justice department employee and Rockwell International, the contractor that runs the Rocky Flats Nuclear Weapons Facility in Colorado. But the Clinton Administration and Rockwell cut a deal to prevent any indictments from being handed down.
