I first saw something about this while researching for something else related to Russia and Obama (which I'll be getting to shortly) and found a post at a liberal blog about it. Business Insider also has a story about it and while it advises that a grain of salt be taken, given who the sources for the story are, it does not seem unlikely that the Obama regime would do exactly such a thing given its record of non-transparency and attacking those who report unflattering truths about Obama's terrible leadership. Via Business Insider:
Here's an interesting report from Pakistan's daily newspaper The Nation.
It cites a Russian regulatory agency as saying that the US is currently having a major nuclear emergency at the flooded plant in Nebraska and that the Obama Administration is trying to cover it up.
The Russian report describes the Nebraska situation as one of the worst nuclear accidents in the history of the United States.
Bear in mind that this report comes from Russia and Pakistan--two countries that aren't particularly happy with Obama right now.
But the FAA has enacted a no-fly zone over the Fort Calhoun nuke plant, which was damaged by a fire and flooding from the Missouri river.
Here's the report from The Nation:
A shocking report prepared by Russia’s Federal Atomic Energy Agency (FAAE) on information provided to them by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) states that the Obama regime has ordered a “total and complete” news blackout relating to any information regarding the near catastrophic meltdown of the Fort Calhoun Nuclear Power Plant located in Nebraska.According to this report, the Fort Calhoun Nuclear Plant suffered a “catastrophic loss of cooling” to one of its idle spent fuel rod pools on 7 June after this plant was deluged with water caused by the historic flooding of the Missouri River which resulted in a fire causing the Federal Aviation Agency (FAA) to issue a “no-fly ban” over the area.Located about 20 minutes outside downtown Omaha, the largest city in Nebraska, the Fort Calhoun Nuclear Plant is owned by Omaha Public Power District (OPPD) who on their website denies their plant is at a “Level 4” emergency by stating: “This terminology is not accurate, and is not how emergencies at nuclear power plants are classified.” RTR

Say Anything is also wondering about this too:
To be clear, we’re talking about a leftist rag (with a decidedly anti-nuclear power bent) citing information compiled by Russia and Pakistan (two countries not exactly friendly with ours or known for telling the truth), so take this with a grain of salt.I'm not surprised to see nothing about this in the MSM, but you can be assured that I'll be looking into this and will keep you updated here if I find out more.
The FAA has enacted a no-fly zone over Fort Calhoun saying it’s for high power lines and “security reasons that we can’t reveal.” The latest news from officials is that the Fort Calhoun plant is in stable condition. Given that we’d be getting reports of people detecting radioactive material if something had breached, that’s probably true.
But is this nuclear power plant in danger right now? There seem to be more questions than answers. RTWT
