First thing I'd like to mention is that the secret aid ordeal was not done while I was a Senator. I made a mistake and I did my best to rectify the situation and have dealt personally with those most effected by the aid and as far as I know, that situation is closed and if not, I will continue to prove that I have learned from the issue and that it won't happen again. I'm not pointing this out from your quote to prove something to you, only to put the rumors to rest once and for all and expose the truth about what really happened.
Basically, I went to MU with the proposition of secret aid on the condition that the wars they were instigating were ended. I made the play with little knowledge of MU's history and I essentially got played. It sucks, I learned from it, I was forward with those that were actually effected and I offered to make whatever amends were necessary to move forward. As far as I know, no irreparable harm was done as a result of this aid, and if there was I would've had done what I could to rectify the situation. I would also note that nobody had any prior knowledge when I sent the aid and I came forward as soon as I realized that MU had no intentions of stopping their war.
I post this now just so you know what actually happened from my point of view.
