Maddow: Russian Nuclear Incident Shows What Happens When You Can't Trust Your Government

MSNBC's Rachel Maddow dives deep into vague reports trickling out this week about a deadly radiation leak after a failed missile test in Northern Russia. "Ambulances are being sealed off with plastic sheeting, everyone at the response site is wearing HAZMAT suits. If a spewing experimental nuclear reactor that killed seven people has been cast into the sea, who do you call to fix that problem?" Maddow opined. "And what dangers does it pose as you try to fish it out?" "We'll stay on this story, but we've only been following it for a couple of days and it is exponentially worse," she continued. "And part of continuing to follow it will be trying to figure out if you or anyone in Russia can trust anything the Russian government says about what is actually happening on its own soil, including the threat that may be posed to civilians -- certainly the first responders and the medical personnel and whoever is involved in whatever this cleanup effort now is." "It is one thing to trust your government in good times when things are generally going well -- but can you trust them in a crisis? Do you trust them in a crisis? If you can't trust them in a crisis, how much worse can bad times get?"
