Japan to send two officials to U.S. for Boeing battery probe

TOKYO Thu Jan 31, 2013 9:01pm EST

TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan's Civil Aviation Bureau said on Friday it would send two investigators to Seattle as part of the probe of the battery problem on Boeing's (BA.N) 787 Dreamliner.

The global fleet of 50 Dreamliners, 17 of which are operated by Japan's All Nippon Airways (9202.T), has remained grounded while investigators in Japan and the United States attempt to find out what caused one battery to catch fire on a 787 operated by Japan Airlines Co (9201.T) in Boston earlier this month, and a second battery to burn on ANA's domestic flight.

The battery company is Japanese.
The manufacturer of the battery feedback checker is Japanese.

When the American investigators went to Japan to gather evidece from Japanese manufacturer of the defective battery, Reuters refused to report.

The superb skill of Reuters reporters in scapegoating America, dump the neo-Nazi Japanese who never took responsibility for tens of millions of massacres, deaths, rapes in Asia, is just mind boggling.
Reuters is a propaganda mongerer, not a news agency.

It probably provided the info for the Japanese hired hackers who hacked my computer to prevent me from blogging also.
