NM – Governor Miguel Ortiz – Personal log 12.11.2018
The tide of recent world events has cast humanity in a bad light. Regional conflicts threaten the security of nations around the world. Terrorism, by the old definition, has become the new face of conflict. Agencies wishing disrupt governments and corporations have adopted the covert style popularized in the early millennium by Al-Qaeda and other stateless armies. Then, as now, these activities exist as an undercurrent to daily life. Unless the actions of these groups effect people directly most see it on a network feed. Comments about the barbaric practices of theses groups are the only typical response. Society trundles on, largely uninterrupted. Families still vacation to exotic locations. Entertainment super-corporations pedal the action thrillers and hollow satires common to the industry. Cells of dissidents sparkle and fade under the temporal flags of injustice. Erased by societies inability to see an undercurrent of change.
The United States Government along with key members of the G20 countries have largely funded the efforts to fight the stateless armies, referred to in their rhetoric as Sub-State dissidents or SSDs. The state of New Mexico has prospered in recent legislative initiatives involving development of alternative energies. This has resulted in the creation of many research facilities in remote areas of the state. Few outside of top secret divisions within the military and the government are aware of the weaponization of these technologies for use against these 2nd generation stateless armies.
One of these facilities has recently been compromised and is in a state of lock down while a team of engineers and specialist can respond to the threat. The desert facility is a subterranean complex 10 miles outside of Fort Sumner.
A team of civilian consultants and military personnel are responding to the threat. And will infiltrate the complex to stop the terrorist and release the hostages.
