National Security Blanket Hides Murders of US Military Personnel

National Security Blanket Hides Murders of US Military Personnel

Marine veteran provides information to President Trump and Congress on the murders of El Toro Marines and hundreds of 101st Airborne troops.

El Toro MCAS

(SALEM, Ore.) – President Donald Trump has the authority to lift the veil of National Security, covering the murders of military personnel and protecting those responsible from prosecution.

Information obtained from reliable sources was provided in February 2017 to both President Trump and Congress, supporting the need for investigations into the murders of Marine Colonel James E. Sabow (and other Marines) at MCAS El Toro, CA, and 256 Americans burned to death on Arrow Air 1285.

An unbiased criminal investigation could result in the indictments and convictions of very powerful people who were responsible for murders, narcotrafficking, perjury and misprision of felonies (the concealment of felonies and failure to report it to the prosecuting authorities by persons who have not committed it).

As a financial manager with DLA, I spent considerable time in the Washington, DC, area over my last 15 years of government service. While with a Disabled American Veterans (DAV) chapter visiting Washington, DC, on February 28, 2017, I literally ran all over the Dirksen and Hart Senate Office Bldgs., providing information on these murders.

I introduced myself as a reporter for, giving a short 4-5-minute briefing on TREACHERY, the story of murder, narcotrafficking and an aborted covert mission in the Middle East; and left a copy of supporting data with Congressional staffers. An identical package was Fedexed earlier to President Trump.

Figure 1: Colonel Sabow’s crime scene. The patio chair was not on the body when his wife discovered him dead in their backyard. The shotgun had no fingerprints on it. The intraoral shotgun blast resulted in very little blood and evidence that the colonel was already dead from the violent blow to the back of his head when the assassins discharged the 12-gauge shotgun into his mouth.

This sordid story involves the cold-blooded murder of Marine Colonel James E. Sabow in his quarters at Marine Corps Air Station El Toro, CA, in January 1991 and horrific deaths of 256 Americans on Arrow Air 1285, a military chartered flight with CIA links to Iran/Contra in Gander, Newfoundland, in December 1985.


Colonel Sabow’s death was ruled a suicide by the government. However, the forensic evidence published by the UK’s Journal of Forensic Research and peer reviewed by other scientists in January 2017 supports murder, conspiracy to commit murder, crime scene tampering by federal agents, a doctored autopsy photo of Colonel Sabow submitted by Defense Department to a federal district court and the Congress, the crime scene tampering and years of cover-up by the Navy, the Marine Corps and high level Defense Department officials.

The motive was to kill the colonel was to keep him from blowing-the-whistle on the government’s lucrative covert guns-for-drugs operation. Billions were made from the sales of cocaine transported on CIA proprietary C-130s into El Toro, March AFB, Homestead AFB, Mena, AZ, and other secured locations in the US. This covert operation involved guns-for-cocaine. The guns were shipped on CIA proprietary aircraft to Central America in exchange for cocaine flown into the US.

Gene Wheaton, a career military investigator, was involved in both investigations after he retired from the Army. Wheaton’s investigation supported homicide in both cases. Wheaton found evidence Colonel Sabow was murdered to prevent him from blowing-the-whistle on the narcotrafficking of cocaine in El Toro.

Colonel Sabow was relieved of his duties for alleged misuse of government aircraft in a failed attempt to get him to plead guilty and retire from the Corps. It didn’t work.

The colonel was authorized to fly as a trainee with another command pilot, flying executive aircraft on the weekends. His travel orders and supporting documents were in order.

While at El Toro in January 1991, the Marine Corps Inspector General had access to his flight logs, travel orders, and supporting documentation, which could have easily dismissed any allegation of misuse of government aircraft by the colonel. Instead, the Corps relieved him of his duties, pending a full investigation. This was nothing more than a charade to get the colonel to accept Article 15 charges of misuse of government aircraft he was not certified to fly. No formal charges were filed; he was murdered within a few days.


The crash of Arrow Air 1285 in Gander, Newfoundland, on December 12, 1985 killed hundreds of 101st Airborne troops on their way home from a peacekeeping mission in the Sinai. The Canadians were responsible for the investigation of crash and called it an accident due to icing.

The problem is there are eye witnesses who saw the aircraft on fire at take-off. There was no evidence of icing but evidence of incendiary devices and napalm in soda cans detonated on take-off, causing a fire and explosion on the airborne DC-8CF.

There are CIA links to these murders and a Reagan and Bush administrations that was open to dealing with drug cartels and making money off the sales of weapons to both Iraqis and Iranians.

Thousands of TWOs and other lethal weapons were taken from NATO stocks, flown by Arrow Air and other CIA proprietary airlines into the Middle East as reported by Joel Bainerman, an Israeli investigative reporter. The moneys from these sales were used to fund covert operations.

Figure 3: Hole in aircraft with metal bent outward supporting an internal explosion.


The deaths of Marine and Army personnel on active duty is normally assigned to the NCIS and the Army equivalent organization but these deaths had major political impacts and any prior investigations (e.g., Colonel Sabow at El Toro and the Army deaths in Canada) were seriously compromised.

The Army deaths (248 101st Airborne troops on Arrow Air 1285) were classified as accidental based on the Canadian Air Safety Board (CASB) report of icining in a 5 to 4 split decision (the 4 dissenters were all professional pilots, 3 were aeronautical engineers).

The professionals found forensic evidence of fire and explosion on the airborne DC-8CF. A Canadian Air Force nuclear officer at the scene reported a nuclear device (possibly a nuclear backpack, which was in the US military’s inventory) on fire at the crash site.

This may have been connected to the alleged covert mission to destroy an Iraqi nuclear research facility with a nuclear backpack, then blame the Iraqis for the explosion and use covert operatives to rescue hostages held by Hezbollah in Lebanon.

The allegation is the mission was aborted with deaths of US personnel (six sealed wooden boxes the size of coffins were loaded on the aircraft in Cairo). The DC-8CF had seats for 269 passengers so there was room for 21 more passengers not reported on the official manifest. A telephone call with a stewardess who worked for Arrow Air and had detailed knowledge about this flight confirmed that the flight was full with no empty seats. The problem for the government is that the DC-8CF had only two seat configurations, 200 seats or 269 seats. So, if the aircraft was full, then there were 269 passengers, not 248 reported by the government.

One allegation is that Special Forces involved in the ill-conceived covert mission that caused the deaths of unit members were a threat to blow-the-whistle on the planned use of a nuclear weapon in the Middle East. The ‘easy solution’ was to destroy the aircraft before it landed at Fort Campbell, KY. Wheaton’s investigation of Arrow Air 1285 resulted in a massive amount of evidence, including eye witnesses accounts, laboratory reports and documents establishing that the DC-8CF suffered an onboard fire and explosion before impact and did not crash “as reported by the official Canadian report.”

These operations were under the control and direction of a unit of the National Security Council called OSG-TIWG (Operations Sub-Group-Terrorist Incident Working Group), which was co-chaired by LTC Oliver North and Associate FBI Director Oliver “Buck” Revell.

There were no sabotage investigations by the FBI or the RCMP. There was no effort to reconstruct the aircraft.

The same day as the crash, the U.S. Army was present at Gander. The focus of the U.S. Army was to remove the bodies to mortuary at Dover AFB and bury the debris as quickly as possible. Two LAPD bomb squad officers’ deaths are connected to AR 1285, too.


Arleigh McCree, the head of LADPD bomb squad, told Charles “Chuck” Byers, President of Accuracy Systems Ordinance Corporation, Phoenix, that his incendiary device was linked to an aircraft crash, and he would be interviewed by federal agents.

Both men were friends, had common interests in munitions, guns and knew each other for several years.

Don Devereux, a long-time member of Investigative Reporters & Editors (IRE) whose investigative work for the print media earned him two Pulitzer nominations, investigated the Arrow Air 1285 crash for several years for both the print media and TV series like “Investigative Reports” and “Unsolved Mysteries”.

Devereux reported a discussion between Byers and Arleigh McCree in January 1986:

On the shelves in a company office, Byers had arranged a display of the various specialized products being manufactured and marketed, mostly going to defense, intelligence, and law enforcement customers.

While walking past the display, McCree suddenly stopped and reached out to pick up one object.

Obviously startled by what he held in his hands, he exclaimed, “This is what brought down a plane we’re investigating!”

The object in question was a transparent plastic packet with three sealed pockets. Two of the pockets contained chemical compounds—one white, one black—which when combined became highly volatile, and the third pocket included a folded aluminum foil cup in which to mix them.

Once combined, the chemicals could be ignited by a simple burning fuse, by a trigger, or even by remote control.

The device had various names in the trade; a “flash” compound, an “incendiary trigger,” a “fire starter”.

Detonated in association with such inflammatory materials as napalm, it very quickly could produce one hell of a conflagration, easily sufficient to bring down an aircraft.

McCree asked Byers who had been buying the device. Byers said that he only had one customer for it–the CIA. McCree told Byers that he was going to be writing a report about his discovery and that someone would be getting back to him about it.

McCree and Ron Ball, his partner, were killed in a bobby-trapped bomb pipe several weeks later.

No federal agents interviewed Byers who pushed for an investigation of his friend’s death with various federal agencies.

Subsequently, a bomb in a package addressed to Byers killed his plant manager. The government shut down his business, and found ‘evidence’ of procurement fraud when he mailed a check to another contractor from unexpended funds on a government contract.

The funds should have been returned to the Treasury but Byers said he never received a dime from the contractor and was only following the directions of a federal contracting officer.

He was sentenced to 20 months in a federal prison in Virginia. Now, officially a convicted felon, Byers complaints about McCree’s death could be dismissed as the rantings of a convict.


These cases require thorough investigations by the US Attorney General. If approached with an unbiased attitude, I believe there will be strong evidence of homicide and government misconduct, which could result in indictments of multiple individuals.

These are cold case investigations, but the Jan 2017 forensic reports of Bryan Burnett, published in a UK forensic journal with peer review, provide a solid foundation for the cold-blooded murder of Colonel Sabow and the cover-up by DOD, including a fraudulent autopsy photograph submitted to a District Court and the US Congress.

Gene Wheaton’s work and Dr. Les Filotas’ book on AR 1285, Improbable Cause, a 500-page definitive work, and his participation as a member of the CASB supports the deliberate destruction of the DC-8CF aircraft and the violent deaths of 256 Americans, including eight crew members.

The National Security mantel covers both cases, but that can be lifted by the President. There is no statute of limitations on murder, and those involved have no place to hide.

#2921: Can Trump Purge Fake-News Boeing Bridge Of Hastert Blackmail Demons, 8(a) Serco Murders?

United States Marine Field McConnell 
Plum City Online – (
March 5, 2017

Abel Danger (AD) has explained how President Trump can purge fake news from a Boeing-operated bridge* where members of pedophile newsgroups such as former House speaker Dennis Hastert are allegedly being blackmailed with Demon face-recognition software and forced to conceal a decades-old murder for hire service by 8(a) companies to Serco’s banking and government shareholders.

* Federal Bridge Certification Authority – A dark web government communications network where the root key for mission-critical assassinations is held by Serco for the UK Ministry of Defence.

AD claims that Serco hired a parking enforcement team in 1998 to set demon traps for Hastert and his pedophile associates in Chicago and blackmailed them into moving the Boeing HQ to Chicago and structuring payments over the federal bridge to conceal mentored 8(a) murder-for-hire services on 9/11.

AD Global Operations Director Field McConnell claims that Serco’s Small Business Technology Companies (‘S.B.T.C’) used his sister Kristine Marcy, a former Senior Counsel for Detention and Deportation at the Department of Justice, Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS), to stage the JonBenét Ramsey murder in December 1996 and set Demon traps for pedophiles on the federal bridge.

AD claims that Serco used 8(a) and ICE agents on the federal bridge to link pedophile newsgroups to various patented devices including the onion router (US 6266704 B1) and the Boeing Uninterruptible Autopilot GyroChip (US 5755978 A), needed to coordinate the BBC’s fake news of the 9/11 attacks.

AD claims that Serco – C4I supplier to Boeing – operates a BBC/MI5 archive of child pornography, partially assembled by Lord Boothby (d. 1986), Clement Freud (d. 2009) and Jimmy Savile (d. 2011), and allegedly forced Boeing to move its HQ to Chicago to mentor the attacks over the federal bridge on 9/11.

AD claims that Serco provided the UK Cabinet Office with 8(a) resilience training on 9/11when the BBC pedophile elites allegedly injected fake news into media plays while 8(a) company actors, experienced journalists and television crews produced the “first live broadcast mass snuff film in human history.”

Field McConnell is asking to meet with President Trump to explain how he can purge Boeing’s bridge of fake news – where blackmailed pedophiles are allegedly forced to conceal murder for hire – with a 14-word amendment [see brackets] to 18 U.S. Code § 1958 – Use of interstate commerce facilities in the commission of murder-for-hire where “Whoever travels … with intent that a murder be committed [or news or evidence of such a murder be concealed, withheld, destroyed or faked] … and if death results, shall be punished by death or life imprisonment, or shall be fined not more than $250,000, or both.”

“In 1998 the City of Chicago awarded Serco a contract for collections from the approximately 28,000 parking meters. Sercocollects more than $27 million revenue for the City every year having increased collection figures by more than $2.4 million from previous years. Serco also provides parking enforcement services including issuing citations for violations. Serco provides various levels of parking collection and enforcement services in a number of Maryland municipalities, Washington DC and West Hollywood, California.”

The REAL Hastert Scandal: Pedophilia, Drug Money and Blackmail 
Corbett • 10/15/2015 • 3 Comments 
by James Corbett 
October 13, 2015 
In May of this year a federal grand jury indicted former Speaker of the House John Dennis Hastert. The charges: that he had “structured” withdrawals of over $950,000 from various bank accounts to skirt bank reporting laws and that he had lied to federal agents about these withdrawals. According to the indictment the withdrawals were part of a bid to pay $3.5 million in blackmail to cover up “past misconduct” from his time as a high school teacher in Illinois.

The story seemed perfect fodder for the tabloid corporate press. It featured a former high-ranking politician, blackmail and intrigue, and just enough details about Hastert’s former life as a teacher and wrestling coach to suggest that the “past misconduct” referred to a salacious scandal of sexual abuse of a minor. But for some reason the story faded from the headlines almost as quickly as it appeared. And now that Hastert’s legal team has announced that they are seeking a plea deal with prosecutors in order to avoid a trial, it seems the story is likely to disappear completely.

But a series of revelations from FBI whistleblowers reveal that this story is just the tip of a very seedy iceberg, one that implicates Hastert, his top aide, other Congress members and government officials in a criminal network involved in sexual intrigue, foreign espionage, blackmail, and drug money.

In 2002 Gilbert Graham, a Special Agent in the Washington Field Office of the FBI, blew the whistle on an illegal surveillance program being conducted out of the Bureau’s Washington headquarters. According to the unclassified version of his complaint, obtained by the National Security Whistleblowers Coalition in 2007, Graham alleged violations of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillence Act “in conducting electronic surveillance as a subterfuge to acquire evidence of criminal activity.”

These allegations were backed up by a former FBI Counterintelligence Specialist in the Washington Field Office, who told the National Security Whistleblowers Coalition: “…you are looking at covering up massive public corruption and espionage cases; to top that off you have major violations of FISA by the FBI Washington Field Office and HQ targeting these cases. Everyone involved has motive to cover up these reports and prevent investigation and public disclosure.”

According to FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds, revealing the details of this program for the first time in a series of podcasts in the wake of the Hastert revelations, this illegal surveillance program — dubbed COINTELPRO II by the agents who were asked to implement it — dates back to the mid-1990s, when the Clinton White House was being rocked by a series of sex scandals.

In the mid-1990s, still bogged down with the Paula Jones Scandal, a case that refused to quickly go away, while preparing for another sexual scandal, the Monica Lewinsky case, Bill Clinton and his top White House team put together a political retaliation plan meant to retaliate against and then neutralize the Republican Party and key elected Republican officials. The main objective of the plan was to:

Collect major dirt on key Republican officials Use the information to blackmail those Republicans as a means to prevent impeachment Strategically release the cases of those who did not back down by blackmail if the impeachment process were to proceed [SOURCE: Probable Cause Podcast #23 |]

The plan, implemented with the help of Clinton appointees Janet Reno and Louis Freeh, was remarkably effective.

In December 1998, on the eve of the House debate on Clinton’s impeachment hearings, Washington was rocked by House Speaker-elect Bob Livingston’s sudden announcement of marital infidelity and resignation from the House. As the Chicago Tribune reported at the time:

The speaker-elect said those investigating him were trying to find “indiscretions which may be exploitable against me and my party on the eve of the upcoming historic vote on impeachment.”

Livingston did not give details of any affairs and said he was admitting them only because he had learned that unnamed “individuals” had been working with news organizations.

At the time, Larry Flynt claimed credit for forcing Livingston’s resignation, saying that he had an audiotape of the Congressman engaged in “raunchy” phone sex. This audiotape, according to Edmonds, came directly from the FBI’s counterintelligence unit and the COINTELPRO II program. Livingston’s resignation was only the latest in a string of high-profile Republican sex scandals that involved information “leaked” to the media by unnamed sources in the wake of the Lewinsky scandal. Representatives Henry Hyde, Helen Chenoweth, and Dan Burton’s adulterous relationships were all outed in the run up to impeachment, with Burton admitting to fathering a child out of wedlock.

Livingston was replaced as Speaker by Dennis Hastert, a Congressman no stranger to scandal himself. In 2005 Vanity Fair drew on FBI insiders, FEC filings, sworn testimony and other documents to report on some of the information the Bureau dug up on Hastert. This included FBI wiretaps capturing Turkish agents boasting of tens of thousands of dollars in payments they had used to assure Hastert’s flip flop on the US Congress’ Armenian genocide resolution.

Hastert Spokesman: This is all nonsense. It’s not being reported by the mainstream press because there’s no factual evidence. The reporter does not have a transcript of any wiretap conversations that we know of, and even if he did it’s preposterous. The speaker does not have any connections to American Turkish interests. [SOURCE: Kill The Messenger] Shortly after leaving the House in 2007, Hastert registered as a foreign agent lobbying on the hill for the Turkish government. But the dirt on Hastert and his associates went much deeper than this.

Information on Hastert’s nefarious and illegal sexual activities between 1996 and 2002 is far more explosive than the activities “exposed” in the recent so-called revelations. Hastert’s sexual activities were videotaped and thoroughly recorded not only by two US government agencies, but also by a foreign network — a criminal foreign network — headquartered in Chicago and involved in NATO/CIA Gladio operations. Between 1996 and 2002, Dennis Hastert engaged in illegal fundraising activities in Illinois. These activities included receiving and laundering foreign sourced cash funds, some of them drug money.

Several other high-level elected officials were also involved in these illegal activities. Representative Dan Burton was a key figure. The mayor of Chicago, the governor of Illinois, and at least three high-level staff members were involved as well. [SOURCE: Probable Cause Podcast #20 |]

Hastert’s “nefarious and illegal sexual activities” have been broached in media reports going back at least a decade, since the time that Hastert, as Speaker of the House, helped cover up the Mark Foley scandal involving the sexual abuse of male House pages. Not only has Hastert’s sexual relationship with his live-in chief of staff, Scott Palmer, been repeatedly hinted at in articles by the likes of former US Senate Staffer Laurence O’Donnell, but as far back as 2006 investigative reporter Wayne Madsen was tying the Foley scandal and Hastert into Tom DeLay, Jack Abramoff, Southeast Asia, and child sex prostitution.”

“Serco: Is it a company or a sovereign power? 
Posted on 2010 October 5 | Leave a comment 
SERCO – The Biggest Company You’ve Never Heard Of From Australian television [2:49] If one single company had to be chosen as the exemplar of the military/industrial complex, esnl’s pick would be Serco, a British company created in 1929 as a local branch of Radio Corporation of America.

Today the firm runs air traffic control towers in the U.S., immigration detention centers in Australia, schools and the anti-missile defense system in Britain, and much, much more.

Of special interest to us is the company’s growing role in the espionage world and intelligence world, especially here in the U.S., where it is based in Reston, Virginia, the nation’s capital of corporate spookery.

According to Crocodyl, the company holds contracts with an alphabet soup of three- and four-letter agencies, including the National Security Agency [NSA], National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency [NGA], the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), Office of Naval Intelligence, the Air Force Information Warfare Center, and the Department of Defense.

Here’s an example of the folks who work for Serco, from a new hire announcement posted by the company two years ago: Serco Inc., a provider of professional, technology, and management services to the federal government, ­announced today that Maureen Baginski has been named Vice President of the intelligence business and National Security Advisor at Serco. … From 2003 to 2005, Ms. Baginski served as the FBI’s Executive Assistant Director for Intelligence where she was responsible for establishing and managing the FBI’s first-ever intelligence program. Her mission was to adapt FBI intelligence capabilities with information technologies to create an intelligence-sharing operation that could identify threats before they became attacks.

From 1979 to 2003, Ms. Baginski served at the National Security Agency (NSA), where she held a variety of positions, including Signals Intelligence (SIGINT) Director, Senior Operations Officer in the National Security Operations Center; Executive Assistant to the Director of NSA/Central Security Service, Chief Officer of the Director; Assistant Deputy Director of Technology and Systems; and lead analyst for the Soviet Union. As SIGINT Director, Ms. Baginski successfully established and directed a unified program to exploit encrypted or denied information on global networks. Leading the NSA’s Signals Intelligence Directorate, the Nation’s high technology cryptology organization, she managed a complex and geographically dispersed distributed information production enterprise.

The company’s CEO is an India-born Pentecostal Christian [shades of Dinesh D’Souza], and is profiled here by The Guardian’s Janice Martinson in 2006.” 

“DHS ICE OTD … Since 1986, through various contracts, Serco has provided full training lifecycle support for all areas of this key Law Enforcement organization including Inspections, Border Patrol, Enforcement, and DHS operations at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Academy in Glynco, GA. .. Serco developed and scripted three scenarios based on negligent practices identified by the IG report that have resulted in the use of lost or uncontrolled weapons for robbery, murder, and the accidental death of a child. We used creative animation techniques, sound effects, music, and talented voice actors playing multiple characters to create an emotional appeal much different—and infinitely more powerful—from the standard WBT offering.  

Serco has trained more than 400,000 DHS students in every region and district, at every land, air and sea border crossing, in classrooms, through WBT, train-the-trainer programs, on-the-job training and through the implementation of performance support systems in a blended learning environment. In collaboration with ICE OTD, our latest efforts have resulted in the accreditation and completion of three programs, including HSI FOTP, ICE OTD IDC, and ICE OPR. Serco was integral to the ICE team that was recognized by the 2012 “Excellence in Law Enforcement” Award given to the ICE Domestic Field Operations Training Program (DFTOP) Accreditation Project for having greatly improved ICE training, increasing operational efficacy and efficiency, and minimizing safety issues to ICE officers and the public.” 

28 November 2001 Global swoop on newsgroup paedophiles 
By Will Knight 
More than 130 people in 19 different countries have been arrested or are under investigation after police traced the distribution of child pornography through different internet newsgroups. Technical experts at UK internet service provider Demon Internet aided officers from the National Crime Squad’s new Hi-Tech Crime Unit with the investigation.

A spokesperson from Thus, Demon’s parent company, says that investigators were not given access to the server logs that record Demon users’activities.

Investigators were simply provided with access to newsgroup postings in the same way as any other Demon customer. Technical experts from Demon then helped officers distinguish the identifying information contained within the message “headers” of particular postings.

Face recognition

Officers traced postings relating to certain images to different internet service providers around the world and then contacted Interpol to track down suspects.

Investigators say they discovered 10,000 suspect postings to over 30 different newsgroups and identified 60,000 new images. They plan to use face recognition software to identify victims in different images, to help trace them. This software has been developed in conjunction with UK company Serco, although no technical details have been released”.

“Serco Combined Resilience Exercising

Types of Exercise Workshop Exercises These are structured discussion events where participants can explore issues in a less pressurized environment.

They are an ideal way of developing solutions, procedures and plans rather than the focus being on decision making. Table Top Exercises These involve a realistic scenario and will follow a time line, either in real-time or with time jumps to concentrate on the more important areas. The participants would be expected to be familiar with the plans and procedures that are being used although the exercise tempo and complexity can be adjusted to suit the current state of training and readiness. Simulation and media play can be used to support the exercise. Table-top exercises help develop teamwork and allow participants to gain a better understanding of their roles and that of other agencies and organisations.

Command/Control Post Exercises These are designed primarily to exercise the senior leadership and support staff in collective planning and decision making within a strategic grouping. Ideally such exercises would be run from the real command and control locations and using their communications and information systems. This could include a mix of locations and varying levels of technical simulation support. The GoldStandard system is flexible to allow the tempo and intensity to be adjusted to ensure maximum training benefit, or to fully test and evaluate the most important aspects of a plan. Such exercises also test information flow, communications, equipment, procedures, decision making and coordination.

Simulation and Media Support The method of delivering an exercise is flexible and will be designed with the client to meet their requirements with options ranging from simple paper-based delivery through to full use of their real communications systems [Red Switch Network and Hawkeye onion router surveillance aircraft] and advance computer simulation [In Trump’s death pool and war room suites]. In addition, media play can also be added in the form of news injects and the provision of experienced journalists and television crews to help test procedures and also assist in training key staff.
