Unknown Quantity

The Raven, by Gustave Doré

It’s been a rough couple of weeks since we launched Warmongers inc. From the amount of information we have to retrieve and analyze to the simple task of running a website — we’re starting to feel in way over our heads. But we’re getting there, and patterns are starting to emerge. Familiar faces in surveillance pictures. Coded references in classified reports. And names, popping up again and again.

“A thug in a suit is still a thug.”

Grigori. For the past days, he’s been the focus of my attention. I have a face, a few transcripts. But as of now, I have no idea who this “Grigori” is. My instinct (if there’s anything like instinct in journalism) tells me he’s important. The whole alphabet of agencies call him a “Person of Interest” — which means he must be a major player in this spider web of weapon traffickers, warlords and criminal enterprises. This is all I know, not enough for a story — more than enough for concern. He’s out there. And it’s only a matter of time until we find out who he is, and what he’s after.

Little by little, we’re connecting the dots. While Grigori is still a question mark, other actors have been identified, their roles clarified. To all of you out there, now is the time to pitch in: the smallest piece of information you might provide could help us. I feel like we only scratched the surface, and there’s still much to uncover. Together, let’s keep digging.
