I have the feeling this is going to end up like the other articles in this series: fantastic and horribly underappreciated.

Yes! You have no idea how much I've been wanting to see the continuation this great series. I literally did a little dance of joy in my chair.
Same here. The original captivated me, and I somehow missed the second entry until now, so this was twice the treat. The historical personalities, attention to detail, and careful teasing of information is all really compelling. I wish I knew a little more about what this thing actually is, but that isn't a slight to the story at all. This is a rare, well-executed glimpse at how the political world might realistically deal with managing SCPs and other GOI operations, and it deserves to be better celebrated. Front page material, IMO.
1) Is this in reference to a particular SCP?
2) Was that the Foundation pretending to be the GoC? Or the two of them cooperating on something?
1. Considering that its SCP designation is a currently nonexistent one, it's likely one original to this tale.
2. From what I gather here and in the past installments, the GoC were forced to hand the SCP over to the Foundation because they couldn't find a reliable way to kill it. It was either give it the Foundation or literally nuke it with everything they had, and at least there's the slim chance the Foundation can find a way to put it on ice for good.
Why explicitly name all other players, but leave it as "The President"? Especially when it seems like you almost go out of your way to establish which president it is.
This is very well-done, but I find the format unappealing. It's realistic and fits the scenario, but I find transcript style difficult to follow.
Because I'm copying the style in which it's done in real life, subject to wikidot limitations.
It's even more well-done than I first thought. Bravo on excellent attention to detail.
I wonder how such a convention got started? It makes as little sense IRL as it does in a bit of fiction. A designation system with a single exception defeats the purpose of the system.
Except for the fact that Cheney seems a little too subservient to The Presedent, this is extremely well done. Upvoted.
I hadn't read this last entry, yet, and now that I have: This is so very, very, very good. Believable, fantastic dialogue.
EDIT: Also, somewhat oddly, I found it very easy to follow. Odd because usually I find things harder to follow than the norm…
