After reviewing the schematics of ground density at the Inostranka construction site, our analysts have concluded that a two-week delay in construction is warranted, per your request. However, we call for the project to be completed with the existing number of troops.
The OSS is aware of the immense resources required for what you are building in the harsh conditions of the Alaskan mountains. Unfortunately, requesting additional personnel could draw the attention of the White House. The politicians in Washington do not have a mind for these sorts of problems and further escalation of this issue will only cause more delays.
You and I are two of the only people who know the true reason for the construction of the facility and I appreciate your discretion regarding this matter. Do not allow your men to investigate this project any further than what is absolutely necessary for construction. They must take my word when I say that we are facing the kind of scientific threat that would not only jeopardize our national security, but in effect, dwarf our wartime situation in comparison.

(MSCBN) President-elect Elias Martinez has announced that Director Blake Sterling has agreed to take on the position of Director of National Intelligence.
"He knows the intelligence community inside and out," Martinez said in a Rose Garden announcement on Saturday. "He advises leaders on what they need to hear, rather than what they'd like to hear."
Mr. Sterling served as Director of the CIA under the previous administration since May 2002.
Intelligence Committee Chair Sen. Sonia Thompson, D-California, chastised Mr. Martinez Monday for appointing Sterling. Some Democrats have said Mr. Sterling bore some responsibility for recently exposed CIA detention program, and its widely criticized interrogation tactics.
Some political observers agree that Sterling's appointment is a wise move, given the intelligence overhaul recently implemented as the result of continued power struggles between the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and the CIA.
(Life Examiner) Last night, President Elias Martinez and guest of honor First Lady Christina Martinez attended a gala celebrating the first anniversary of the charity organization Paper Dreams, which helps fund education programs for refugee children throughout the world.
A very distinguished guest list included celebrities, VIPs, business and community leaders, major philanthropists and foundation heads, as well as prominent members of the media.
Mrs. Martinez is a major supporter of the charity and her dedicated efforts has helped raise close to two million dollars this past year.
In an exclusive interview for the forthcoming issue of Vanity Fair, she is quoted as saying "I continue to be deeply moved by the inner strength and hopeful determination of so many refugee children that have come to understand the power of education at such a young age. And I've learned that it's a wonderful give and take. We are educating them, and they are educating us in return."
It is an issue close to her heart. President Martinez's parents are Cuban refugees that were ultimately forced to make the heartbreaking decision to leave behind their beloved homeland, upon witnessing the crippling effects of a Communist dictatorship. As she took to the stand, she very graciously honored them as well as families worldwide that have experienced similar hardships in their quest to attain a better life for themselves and a better education for their children.
Ft. Lauderdale, Florida (PRNet) Sen. Elias Martinez stood before an adoring crowd in Miami, Florida on Saturday and announced he will seek the nomination for President of the United States.
This came as no surprise to political observers given Sen. Martinez's mass appeal. In his address, Martinez thanked those present, saying "I'm grateful to all of you for your support, and for coming out here today. I know we've got folks here from all over the state. I spoke with Steve and Joy Pezzula who drove 12-1/2 hours to get here from Georgia. I thank you both, as well as the many others that have made an effort to join me here today. Among which are two remarkable individuals that I hold dear to my heart, and who've journeyed the farthest to make this dream possible. 46 years ago my parents emigrated from Cuba to the United States, and with your help, I hope to follow in their footsteps all the way to Washington."
Mr. Martinez promised the crowd that he would create an honest and transparent government that would allow its leaders to finally be on the same page as the American public. "Let's set in motion a critically thinking populace. I want for each and every one of you to feel you're a part of the process, to know and understand the trials and tribulations facing our country today. Every citizen has the right to feel rightfully represented and heard."
The Florida senator also promised the thousands gathered that he would work toward reviving the economy, developing new energy sources, and investing in medical research and health coverage. Martinez intends to lead a bi-partisan ticket into the White House, and has chosen Senator Raymond Jarvis as his Vice-Presidential running mate. Jarvis served two terms as a Louisiana state representative, after which he became a respected Senator and held the prestigious post of Chairman of the Senate Agriculture Committee.
As evidenced, his expectations for himself and the presidential office are high. However, those gathered seemed to find his lengthy to-do list more motivational than daunting. He concluded by stating, "I will be a new kind of President working toward a new America. Trust me. Join me."
If the 45-year-old Martinez were elected, he would become the nation's first president of Afro-Cuban descent and would run the first truly bipartisan administration in modern history.
According to a University of Florida Research Center survey conducted this month, Martinez placed first by a landslide with voters in his home state.
Should the country's first Afro-Cuban president make race a priority? That question was posed to newly elected U.S. President Elias Martinez during a recent NBC interview, and the answer may surprise you.
Past presidents have been accused of ignoring race relations, and in a country that is becoming more diverse, the issue isn't going to go away. Martinez, a former U.S. Senator, said he was grateful for the support he's received from all voters, and pledged to serve all U.S. citizens, regardless of race or national origin. "It's true that my parents came to this country 46 years ago, but I am an American and ran for office to serve all Americans, regardless of race."
When asked if he believed race relations was a problem, the president said, "The country has many concerns that must be addressed, including the economy, threats from hostile countries, and yes, there's also room to improve race relations."
There's no sign yet that the president is taking action on race concerns. His recent appointments have focused on domestic issues like national security and intelligence, which insiders say is the country's greatest concern.
What will U.S. President Martinez do about race relations?
¿Deberían ser una prioridad las relaciones raciales para el primer presidente afro-cubano del los Estados Unidos? Esa pregunta se le hizo al Presidente Elias Martínez durante una reciente entrevista con NBC. Su contestación te sorprenderá.
A los presidentes del pasado se le han acusado de haber ignorado las relaciones raciales, y en un país tan diverso como éste, este asunto en particular no va a desaparecer pronto. Martínez, un ex senador de los Estados Unidos, dijo que estaba agradecido por el apoyo que ha recibido de los votantes, y se está comprometido con todos los ciudadanos, sin importar su raza u origen nacional. "Es cierto que mis padres llegaron a este país hace 46 años, pero yo soy un americano y me postulé para servirle a todos los americanos. La raza no importa".
En cuanto al problema de las relaciones raciales, el Presidente dijo, "el país sabe que tiene muchos asuntos que resolver, incluyendo la economía, amenazas de países hostiles, y sí, hay un lugar para tratar de mejorar las relaciones raciales".
No hay ninguna señal de que el Presidente esté preocupado con esta situación. Sus recientes nombramientos se han enfocado en asuntos domésticos, como la seguridad nacional e inteligencia, la cual es gran preocupación según varios expertos.
¿Qué hará el Presidente Martínez de los Estados Unidos en cuanto a las relaciones raciales?
Although U.S. President Elias Martinez is within the first months of his first presidential term, many who voted against him are working to prevent his re-election. Martinez, the country's first Afro-Cuban president, claims not to be concerned with these adversaries, saying, "For the next four years my focus is on making this country better, and protecting it from those who want to do us harm. I can only hope that my detractors care enough about the country to work with me in the coming years. I'll worry about re-election four years from now."

Insiders say the president is keeping his enemies close, but critics say it's a dangerous practice that can backfire.

The first term of U.S. President Elias Martinez could be in jeopardy if he can't convince military leaders to be more forthcoming with sensitive information. Martinez has expressed frustration over receiving incomplete and insufficient reports from military leaders.
The president's predecessor had a close relationship with military leaders and rumor has it that they resent the current chief's military stance. With international and domestic tensions mounting, Martinez must convince military leaders that keeping secrets will be detrimental for the country. General Whitman is often seen by the president's side, however the tenor of their relationship is unclear. If Martinez is able to gain General Whitman's trust, perhaps he can help the president improve communications with the military.
In the meantime, U.S. President Martinez can only hope that secrets held by the past administration will not surface and lead to controversy while he's in office. One man who may be able to uncover those secrets is Blake Sterling. Sterling, who became Director of the CIA in 2002 was recently appointed Director of National Intelligence by U.S. President Martinez.
Can U.S. President Martinez control the military and save the country?
El primer termino del presidente Elías Martínez, Presidente de los Estados Unidos, podría estar en peligro si no puede convencer a los líderes militares a divulgar información confidencial. Martínez ha expresado su frustración por haber recibido información incompleta e insuficiente de parte de los líderes militares.
Su predecesor tenía una relación estrecha con los jefes militares y parece que resienten la postura del actual jefe militar. Las tensiones internacionales y domésticas se están acumulando, y Martínez debe convencer a los líderes militares que guardar secretos perjudicará la seguridad del país.
General Whitman está siempre al lado del presidente, sin embargo, la naturaleza de su relación no está clara. Si Martínez es capaz de ganarse la confianza de General Whitman, éste podría ser un aliado para el presidente a la hora de comunicarse con el ejercito.
Mientras tanto, el presidente Martínez, de los Estados Unidos, quiere evitar controversias y no quiere que los secretos de la pasada administración salgan a luz pública.
