TOKYO (Reuters) — Prime Minister Naoto Kan told his cabinet on Tuesday that he would announce his intention to resign on Friday, Finance Minister Yoshihiko Noda said.
Mr. Kan had canceled plans to meet with President Obama in Washington next month. His resignation would set in motion an election within his Democratic Party to choose a successor.
Mr. Kan has faced increasing criticism for his handling of the Japanese government’s response to the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear accident in March.

The possibility exists that depositional material was ejected from the reactors well beyond the USA 10 mile EPZ. Looking now as if USA knew all along and documented by the 50 mile exclusion zone established by US military forces immediately after the event. We also know that a large number of Japanese school children directly contamination and over 10K now wearing dosimetry.
