---Statement from the SoEA---

The Factbook entry will be forthcoming. I will probably do the first part tonight.

I would also like to ask the GM to meet with me as soon as possible as I'd like to discuss the upcoming stories for the position.

After my meeting with the GM, I will hold a briefing with the President.

I'll be taking my first foreign trip this week. I will be visiting Israel to hold a fact finding mission.

Any questions, concerns, comments by anyone can go here.

If you wish to hold a private meeting with me, I am available through message or here in my office.

Thank you all,

Dr. Cynic

---Important Statement from the SoEA---

I have been advised by the President that the situation in the Midwest has deteriorated to the point of full on insurrection.

Ergo, I am calling up 6 armored divisions to the Midwest in order to free the Prime Verin and all members of the Midwest's Legislature that are being held captive.

In reacting to your immoral actions against the sovereign people of Midwest, I ordered a launch of scud missiles into Nyman.

God help you all because I will not.

---Communique from the SoEA----

I am currently meeting with Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu to begin negotiations for a Palestinian State. Unfortunately, talks currently proving fruitless. The DoEA and the Atlasian Government are not pleased with this unfortunate lack of cooperation from Israel.

This is just another attempt by this government to divert attention from their corruption and debauchery.

If there was any real plot, you all would be my prisoners already. I know how to do my job.
