August 29, 2012, Tokyo, Japan - Japan's former Prime Minister Naoto Kan speaks during a news conference at Tokyo's Foreign Correspondents' Club of Japan on Wednesday, August 29, 2012...Kan simply reiterated what he has said on many occasions, justifying the actions he took in facing a nuclear disaster at Fukushima No.1 power plant badly damaged by the March 11 earthquake and ensuing tsunami last year. Investigative reports by independent groups have indicated meddling from Kan, including his visit to the crippled plant a day after the accident, confused the initial response from the plant workers. One report said the prime minister's visit "diverted the attention and time of on-side operation staff and confused the line of command." (Photo by Natsuki Sakai/AFLO) AYF -mis-.
