Imad Kahdduri, don't defend the Japanese government

The Japanese parliamentary panel says the Fukushima disaster is "man-made," Al Jazeera reports.Of course it is. I've found the pundit called Imad Kahdduri is problematic. He says:

Speaking to Al Jazeera, Imad Khadduri, nuclear scientist and author, said: "These are officials not scientists. They should have assembled a group of scientists and relied on them, but they didn’t. They stayed in their political jacket suits. Yes, there is a shortcoming in that."

"But on the whole, if this kind of calamity has happened in any part of the world, I really doubt that the governments and the scientists in the other part of the world would be able to cope as the Japanese did."

The problem is that he is defending the Japanese government. It may be true that the parliamentary panel's is a political decision (because majority of the people in Japan are against nuclear power) and also that no one can deal with a disaster like this. But, indeed because of this the world should abandon nuclear power altogether.
