Plum City – (AbelDanger.net). United States Marine Field McConnell has linked HSBC Holdings director James Comey’s dirty Libor banking associates to HSBC client Serco’s alleged use of zone-switched time-stamped signals from the NPL cesium clock to detonate the Pentagon bomb on 9/11.

Neil Barofsky on UBS Criminal Charges for LIBOR and HSBC [Comey director, Serco client] Money Laundering
“President Barack Obama and the man he wants to lead the FBI have several things in common. The pair are of a near identical age. (Jim Comey is 52; the President hits that mark in August.) The blood of the University of Chicago runs in both men’s veins: Comey took his law degree there; Obama later taught in the university’s law school for a dozen years. Like Obama, Comey apparently fancies himself at basketball. And, not least, both have the same favourite theologian: the Protestant Christian liberal-realist Reinhold Niebuhr.”
“HSBC Hires Tax, Anti-Terror Chiefs for Controls Panel
By Howard Mustoe – Jan 30, 2013 5:27 AM PT
HSBC Holdings Plc (HSBA) appointed former U.S. Deputy Attorney General James Comey and ex-U.K. tax chief Dave Hartnett to a panel to combat financial crime after the bank paid $1.92 billion to settle money-laundering probes.
Comey, who will be a non-executive director at HSBC, joins Bill Hughes, 62, ex-head of the Britain’s Serious Organised Crime Agency; Juan Zarate, a former George W. Bush administration counter-terrorism adviser, and former U.K. diplomat Nick Fishwick, 54, in providing advice, London-based HSBC said in a statement today.
Chief Executive Officer Stuart Gulliver’s attempts to reduce costs and improve profitability have been hurt by U.S. probes and by compensation claims from U.K. clients. A Senate committee said in July that lax oversight by top HSBC executives gave terrorists and drug cartels access to the U.S. financial system. The December settlement by Europe’s biggest bank by market value to end investigations into money laundering is the largest of its type reached in the U.S.”
“HSBC revealed that it is under investigation by at least six jurisdictions for potential manipulation of interbank lending other interest rate markets as CEO Stuart Gulliver admits Europe’s biggest bank has “lost its way” and warned that legal penalties could be significantly higher than the $700m it has earmarked to settle rate-rigging and money-laundering charges.
In an earnings statement released Monday, the bank said that “various regulators and competition and enforcement authorities around the world including in the UK, the US, Canada, the EU, Switzerland and Asia, are conducting investigations related to certain past submissions made by panel banks in connection with the setting of Libor, Euribor and other interest rates. As certain HSBC entities are members of such panels, HSBC and/or its subsidiaries have been the subject of regulatory demands for information and are cooperating with those investigations.”
“In addition, HSBC and other panel banks have been named as defendants in private lawsuits filed in the US with respect to the setting of Libor and Euribor, including putative class action lawsuits which have been consolidated before the US District Court for the Southern District of New York. The complaints in those actions assert claims against HSBC and other panel banks under various US laws including US antitrust laws, the US Commodities Exchange Act, and state law.”
