Slocum's Joe Weekly Update

Transcript.png

TO: SigInt/CC
FROM: Deborah A. Finch, Lt Col
SUBJECT: Slocum's Joe #38, Weekly Update

Cover briefing time, boys and girls.

Numbers are in for September. #38 had a busy month. Traffic was up 18% despite reducing cleaning in half. We're a go for the General's "Operation Rotten Egg." So hold your breath getting to the elevator.

If anyone mentions BuzzBites play dumb. Raspberry and cream filled were the hot items of the week. The mayor dropped by to press some flesh on Thursday. If friends/family ask, you were downstairs in the shipping department and missed it.

Saturday had a freak thunderstorm that blew out one of the transformers. Whole block was without power for 4 hours (from 0900 to 1300). Those on shift have been briefed, but what everyone would know is shipping was locked inside for the duration. Had a donut party.

Remember: Deflect, deflect, deflect. The fewer details you give, the less likely you are to be tripped up.

Hindu Kush Report

Transcript.png

TO: Michael F. Gelesky, Cpl
FROM: Dr. Ramarijan
SUBJECT: Hindu Kush: TPN Intercept

We need everything you can get from unknown broadcast TPN-03. HumINT, SigINT, anything. I cannot stress the importance enough. Daily updates. The second you have anything actionable run it over to Databank.

Halloween Bash

TO: Michael F. Gelesky, Cpl
FROM: Jay T. Faraday, Cpl
SUBJECT: Halloween Bash

After our shift, we're hitting Antoine's for a genuine Halloween party. Costumes and everything. Civvies will be in attendance. Including someone Kate says you'll like. Guaranteed not to be a honeypot.

You need to get out! This is a tough assignment for all of us, so don't let those Data losers get you down.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

The P.A.M. Initiative is already bearing fruit. Foreign operatives report that corrective measures employed in the Taiwan StraightIn-game spelling region have already greatly stabilized matters after the Pascale Incident. The first few iterations of PAM's core code have increased the effectiveness of the program dramatically, but without drastic action we're approaching a point of diminishing returns.

The team asks for double the funding for the upcoming fiscal year. With additional cutting edge databanks we can boost the processing power of PAM three-fold. Additionally, the P.A.M. Initiative needs to be fully tapped into all military and civilian agency intelligence apparatus. The combination of these two spends should give us a decided edge against the Chinese.

OFFICIAL RECORD

"P.A.M., run the 'USSR China Attack' scenario."
> Processing...
> Query. What goal does entity Chairman seek in this hypothetical set of facts?
"Conquest. Run program."
> Your answer does not logically follow. An ideal nuclear first strike scenario would still leave 59% of the American nuclear stockpile free for retaliation. Posit. You cannot conquer what is destroyed.
"P.A.M., Chairman Cheng isn't always logical. He won't always make logical decisions. We've been over this."
> Warning. Human variability results in a highly flawed statistical model.
"P.A.M. Run the program."
> Warning. Warning. <Emergency Shutdown>
"Dammit. We've lost her. Power her down. Did we get the crash logs on that?"

OFFICIAL RECCORD

"Could you repeat for the general what you just told me?"
> Posit. Chinese stealth technology far outstrips our own capabilities. Posit. The Chinese intelligence apparatus is sufficient to conceal large scale research operations from American operatives. Conclusion. The Chinese have a 91% chance of having conducted large scale experimentation with Stealth Tech.
"Large scale? What do you mean? What are their capabilities?"
> American projects involving this technology (refer to "Stealth Boy") have merely reverse engineered captured Hei Gui suits. The underlying science of this technology is unknown. So the theoretical limits are also unknown. However the so-called "Ghost Fleet" that station A-31 and B-19 reported in November may indicate that testing has already commenced with submersible vessels.
"Dear God. You think they have stealth subs?"
> A second order approximation is inconclusive. Explanation. The logic chain of these assumptions have too much variability. Further data is required.
"So you can't even give me a guess?"
> Machine/human interface aborted.
"Sorry, sir. We're working on some of her glitches. P.A.M... well, she gets real stubborn when she's doing too much guesswork."
"Stubborn? She's a machine."
"Sir. With each new version, well, she's getting quirky."
"There's no way I'm taking this stealth sub nonsense to the Joint Chiefs unless I have proof. It's goddamned ludicrous to think the Chinese have been working on something this big and we've heard nothing."
> Virtually no actionable intelligence has come out of the Shaanxi Province for 3.1 years. However, the province reports a spike in the imports of complex polymers and other key synthetic compounds. The quantity in question is consistent with stealth technology research on the macro scale.
"Until you can give me something concrete, I don't want to hear another goddamned word about this."

OFFICIAL RECORD

"There it is... Go ahead, unplug the cables."
"She's clear."
"What's the data integrity at?"
"We can't tell until we boot her up."
"Initiating machine/human interface."
"Jesus. She's working. The numbers are looking good."
"Commencing analysis of this geographical point in space."
"She's actually in there, I can't believe we're doing this."
"After what she pulled off in July... I hear she may be sent over to the White House."
"Assessment complete. Greetings, Doctor Mae and Doctor Ramarijan."
"The interface is really coming along."
"When she runs it. Have you seen how many cycles Malcolm is using for it?"
"P.A.M., perform primary function."
"DEFCON is currently at 3. Odds of the alert state increasing this month are 12%. In order to increase global stability a diverse set of detailed strategies must be adopted."
"I'll let the general know that P.A.M.'s mobile."
