Navy knew of USS Ronald Reagan Radiation Exposure

A recent post by Harvey Wassermann showed a link to a post about the USS Ronald Reagan.   They quote one of the naval officers:

MR. MUELLER: So — this is Mueller — the sample that was taken and then what we detected, we were 100 nautical miles away and it’s — in our terms it’s — compared to just normal background it’s about 30 times what you would detect just on a normal air sample out at sea. And so we thought — we thought based on what we had heard on the reactors that we wouldn’t detect that level even at 25 miles. So it’s much greater than what we had thought. We didn’t think we would detect anything at 100 miles.

The navy knew that the sailors were exposed, and they have denied responsibility.
