"This is Threnody Zhang live from EDGE News with a breaking story from Novyy Bangkok. We have received independently corroborated evidence of coordination between ALEPH and Combined Army Forces." "Drone footage from the tunnels below the asteroid show a coordinated assault between ALEPH and Combined Army soldiers against a Nomad patrol. Local Nomad sources confirmed that the exchange occurred. The most shocking aspect is that the ALEPH soldier in question has been identified by military experts as a Posthuman Proxy Mk. 2, widely believed to be an extension of the AI itself. This means either a rogue AI has slipped from ALEPH's control, or that ALEPH itself is coordinating with the combined army. Either way, truly dangerous implications for the Human Sphere." Bill Smithson representing Sphere Itself, an NGO governmental watchdog, is sounding the alarm. "This validates common concerns about 'Big Mother.' I am terrified that ALEPH is trying to slip from control of Bureau Thoth. It also gives credibility to a question that once seemed too crazy to consider - is the 'Combined Army' actually an artificial threat created by ALEPH??"
