Summary

This chapter turns to the international presence of these four in the form of their pseudo-diplomatic representatives and the creation and operations of their foreign missions in the United States. Supporters and opponents of these aspirant states both recognized the importance of these nodes and every detail of these missions' existences was hotly contested. Because of their importance, these missions became political and ideological lightning rods, something which exposed political and institutional divisions within the US government as to what status should be afforded to these missions and their representatives.
