The first scan I picked was a very furtive message. It discusses "the press
corp doing a story about surplus property disposal in the forward areas." Yeah,
in other words, how we're going to nuke some old ships! Also a handwritten
note about members of the press corp, as well as a hand written note
regarding Dan Whitehead from the Associated Press. I Googled his name,
thinking he might have received a Pulltizer or somesuch over the years, but no
trace. Also, last dispatch is in first person, against the rules. Unless you have
that brass on your hat...
Captain Wilson's glasses,the War Crimes Tribunal, Capt. Wilson meets the Atoll
Commander (I wonder if he had his glasses?), Message about "floating your
way". (I don't think that is proper terminology), A reference to "Crossroads",
which, I would think is truly a key word in all this. (That message as you see is
"plain" status as opposed to "restricted").
A restricted message regarding Crossroads, that is authorized to be in plain
text, as long as it remains labeled "restricted". Next message is in regards to
some press bigwigs. A message with a Crossroads reference, but from what I
can see, "plain" status. Next a message is regarding "VIPETERS"; a few
generals as well as the wife and kids of the Ambassador to China. And a
second message superseding the first one.
First dispatch makes reference to the First Cavalry. Next refers to generals
aboard a plane and to expedite refueling. A message referencing the wife of
the finance minister of China, handwritten! A simple message about a general's
arrival. Next a mention of a Chinese admiral, as well as a furtive reference to
"communications by other means". Appears to have a "clear" restriction status,
First one a request for a meeting regarding Crossroads. The next one very
unique; makes an actual reference to Ensign Newman. Then some handwritten
notes that maybe someone in the future might be able to use. And finally, an
example of two of the "simple" messages I mentioned earlier. Half the
dispatches in the bundle were like these; basic announcements of arrivals and
