Not just the United States, but the entire world, remembers that fateful November day back in 2018 when Al Qaeda terrorists held the entire nation hostage in exchange for the public disclosure of an anti-terrorist bio-weapon that may not have even existed. In that darkest hour, salvation came not from the United States government, but from fantasy government, a cabinet of independent thinkers and gamers from Naperville, Illinois, led by insurance adjustor and President Jay Weise. Now, thanks to the tireless efforts of crusading vagabond journalist, former White House press secretary, and part-time Radio Shack employee Jerome Bartels, here for the first time is the true story of the Stockdale Hostage Crisis from the people who lived it.
