Dear colleague:Bookmark here

I must thank you, before I go into the matter in hand, for taking it upon yourself to inform the Government of the incidents that took place on November 28th of this year. I know it has been difficult, especially given the large number of politicians who were averse to the huge funds we were getting for our investigations.Bookmark here

I don't want to be unnecessarily long on this note, so I'll be frank. However, as I don't know if I will be able to send a second letter, I will summarize the situation for you.Bookmark here

The Japanese Self-Defense Forces were unable to contain the threat. I'm sure you heard the government statement.Bookmark here

The people of Iwaki have been evacuated. The government provided transportation to help speed up the process. All residents of Iwaki and adjacent towns were taken to Fukushima. The Self-Defense Forces are taking JAXA Obelisks to Fukushima, Hokkaido, Ehime, Kagawa, Fukuoka, Saga, Okinawa, Gunma, Yamaguchi, Akita, and of course, Tokyo. There are only eleven manufactured, but it is hoped that they will keep the population as protected as possible from... those things.Bookmark here

I hope to be able to meet up with the rest of the team as soon as possible, although, with the NPA on my trail, I doubt it will be any time soon.Bookmark here

Best wishes,Bookmark here
