(This posting was a part of My Elves are Different's "Blog as if it's the end of the world" event. It is about a zombie invasion, and entirely fictional.)
The higher-echelon types are getting really, really anxious about finding Ayinde. They've been trying variations on the blood trick, and they can't get it to work. There haven't been any casualties (zombies or no, this isn't one of those movies, people aren't acting like idiots) but they're getting increasingly frustrated. I've heard talk about devoting satellite resources to seeing if they can spot Ayinde.
By the way, be very cautious reading blogs about this subject. There's a lot of misinformation going on out there- different governments using faux fronts (like that "My elves are different" site) to try to turn this to their own advantage. This guy, for example, is actually a front for Khazakhstan. This guy's from the Company. (Yeah, also American, but since when have CIA and DoD gottten along?)
And as for SF Diplomat? You don't even want to know who HE works for.
Edit: And this isn't really John Scalzi, either. MI6 strikes again.
