The Secretary of Defense was killed in a car crash in Australia and Asst Secretary of Defense Tommy MacNamara was named by the Prime Minister as the Acting Secretary of Defense and was expected to be named as the new Secretary and confirmed by the House
Special Election: Gretchen Thompson faced a Liberal Democrat opponent in the race. George Kambata was the Liberal Democrat that chose to run in what had been regarded as a safe seat for the National Conservatives. In fact the seat had been held by the National Conservatives ever since the selection of William Kamehameha I had been made to run for office. This was the first time a person had run without the last name of Kamehameha. Still Gretchen was well regarded by the people of the district and with her uncle as her campaign manager she was in good hands.

Experts were all over the House of Representatives Assembly Hall. The Forensic specials were joined by experts from the Fire Department and the Royal Hawaiian Army Bomb disposal unit. Military Police units were assigned to provide security The new Secretary of Defense was meeting with the Attorney General, Commissioner of Police, Director of the Royal Hawaiian Intelligence Agency and the Royal Hawaiian Secret Service. There would have to be at least 100 special elections to replace dead and severally injured members of the House. Rep Gretchen Thompson was assigned to the House Select Committee on the May 5th Incident. Former Prime Minister George W Kamehameha was appointed Chairman of the Royal Hawaiian Commission to investigate the incident.
Was it an hostile power or a terrorist group?
The Investigation had begun to uncover some links between the explosion in the Assembly hall and a group inside the Kingdom of Hawaii which had ties to a group believing in Marxism. So far the Royal Hawaiian Intelligence Agency had been unable to confirm a foreign source but the Treasury department had found some suspicious bank transfers coming from overseas. The Royal Hawaiian Constabulary with the Royal Hawaiian Secret Service made six arrest. The Royal Hawaiian Army Bomb Disposal Group identified the explosives used as a type no longer used by the Russian Military. The Royal Hawaiian Intelligence Agency they used contacts it had in Russia which indicated that the explosives had gone missing 3 years ago from a convoy where it was being transported to to a secure site for disposal..
The Imperial Austrian Intelligence service had reported that the explosives of that type had been used in an attack in the Crimea and in a Bank robbery in 1942.
A Paul Kincaid arrived from Australia and got an appointment to see Representative Thompson. There was enhanced security at all of the legislative offices so Mr Kincaid was checked for a weapon. He was shown into the Office that was Gretchen's and Gretchen thought he looked familiar. When he smiled she was sure that they had met before. He then said'" So how have you been doing sitting in Grandfathers old seat in the House?" Her expression turned to puzzlement and he said I see you don't recognize me.. My real Name is George P Kamehameha and its a long story cousin
With that statement a light went on in her brain so to speak. She had met her cousin several times in the past when they were kids but hadn't seen him in 12 years at least. . Seeing the expression on her face he said it all started when I was in the Army. I had gone to law school and joined the army. Uncle Bill was unhappy that I didn't chose the Navy but in addition to being a Navy officer he was a lawyer and he made some calls to friends of his that were officers in "that other service". I ended up in the Military Police and then Intelligence. I had to go undercover and thus I became Paul Kincaid..I was a lawyer working for an Australian Company and got really used to being Paul. But finally I came across some information that was related to the explosion and needed to come home to Hawaii.
The Hawaiian Prime Minister was attempting to handle the growing problems in Asia while at the same time paying attention to the investigation into the bombing.
