Obama’s HHS ordered 14 Million Doses of Potassium Iodide. Why is this newsworthy? Because Potassium Iodide is used to protect a person’s body from radioactive poisoning in a nuclear ‘accident’ or nuclear attack. Does the Obama regime know something about what the terrorists are planning that we don’t?

Infowars:
The Department of Health and Human Services has ordered 14 million doses of potassium iodide, the compound that protects the body from radioactive poisoning in the aftermath of severe nuclear accidents, to be delivered before the beginning of February.
According to a solicitation posted on the Federal Business Opportunities website, the DHHS asks contractors to supply, “potassium iodide tablet, 65mg, unit dose package of 20s; 700,000 packages (of 20s),” a total of 14 million tablets. The packages must be delivered on or before February 1, 2014.
Potassium iodide helps block radioactive iodine from being absorbed by the thyroid gland and is used by victims of severe nuclear accidents or emergencies. Under current regulations, states with populations living within 10 miles of a nuclear plant are encouraged, but not required, to maintain a supply of potassium iodide.

Perhaps, our Gov't is taking the precautionary actions they have for decades?

Might even be thinking ahead about Fukashima.

I doubt it has anything to do with Fukushima, unless you lived within 50 miles of the place the radiation isn't really an issue. That said, it may have served as a wake up call and prompted the establishment of more detailed contingencies in case 1 of our plants were to meltdown.
