I would like to seek inquiry into the activities of the National Archivist and the Secretary of State.  Both these offices have been inactive and I have not seen much activity from Drew on the Wiki... it's mostly Truman, myself, and maybe one or two others editing stuff.

I would also like to know the status of the Foreign Relations Review.

I would also like to know the status of the Foreign Relations Review.

I have not had a chance to look into the situation with Drew as of yet, but it has been brought to my attention recently and is something that I plan to address.

In the situation with SoS Snowguy, I  have been in contact with him and from my understanding he plans to commit to being more active in his role. We have had several discussions via PM on the current situation we are dealing with regarding North Korea, China, and Russia (which at this point is one of our top priorities). I fully intend to hold him to his word on this, and will take action if I feel he isn't living up to what is needed to meet the requirements of the position.

As for the Foreign Relations Review, it is high up on the list of things I am getting caught up to speed on and we will be getting to work on as swiftly as possible.

I apologize for any delays that take place as a result of this. Considering how long inactivity has been taking place in this office recently, there is much to catch up on, and I want to be sure I have all the necessary information and resources available to get the job done, and done correctly.

I want to thank you for bringing this to my attention as well, and thank you for your patience.

My fellow Atlasians.

It is with great sadness that I am here to speak to you all this morning. Last night, Secretary of State Snowguy and I were informed of an attack led by North Korean fighter jets on our naval base in Guam. This resulted in the destruction of several of our ships, left 55 of our own killed, and 72 injured. This is not an act that we intend to take lightly and not something we as a nation can sit back and accept.

As many of you had seen, we recently reached an agreement with China, where we pledged to send 30,000 of our troops to aid in not only defending South Korea, but to aid in removing the current leadership and to transition North Korea into a more functional Western nation. I have reached out to leaders in Congress to discuss legislative action that needs to be done to uphold this deal, and have directed several of our troops already in the Pacific to aid in the defense of South Korea, who has recently endured attacks in the city of Seoul.

As more information develops, I will be doing everything I can to keep Atlasia updated, and in the event where we feel there may be a threat to our regions directly, my first point of contact will be our regional executives. The most important thing at this time is ensuring our people are safe, and SoS Snowguy and I will be working tirelessly to ensure we uphold that promise.

I want to thank you all for your time and patience while we handle this extremely delicate situation.
