#2085: Marine Links Serco CEO to MoD Packet-Switched Foley Snuff Film and Spot-Fixed East Africa Bombs
(AbelDanger.net) August 26, 2014: United States Marine Field McConnell has linked Serco CEO Rupert Soames to the MoD’s alleged use of the National Physical Laboratory’s GPS cesium clock for the packet-switched transmission of a James Foley snuff film and the spot-fixed nearly-simultaneous bombings of the East Africa US Embassies in 1998.
McConnell claims that Soames and fellow members of the 320-year-old White’s gaming club paid the Offender’s Tag Association to hire a 23-year-old Londoner named Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary and his 54-year-old father Adel Abdel Bary and equipped the two men with Serco keys to the MoD clock used for packet switching images for the Foley snuff film and spot fixing the 1998 East Africa bombs.

“James Foley killing: Father of murder suspect in jail for 1998 US embassy attacks
Tuesday 26 August 2014
The father of the British-born jihadist named in some reports as the killer of an American journalist last week is currently behind bars in a high security jail in Manhattan awaiting trial on charges arising from the East Africa US embassy bombings in 1998 that killed 224 people.
The reports that the man seen on an Isis video clip beheading the journalist, James Foley, almost one week ago was, in fact, a 23-year-old Londoner named Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary threatens to add unwelcome new complication to the upcoming US terror trial slated to open in Manhattan on 3 November.
Ordered by Osama bin Laden, the 1998 attacks struck at the US embassies of both Kenya and Tanzania.
The father, Adel Abdel Bary, 54, was extradited to the US from Britain in 2012 alongside the former London imam Abu Hamza al-Masri, who was convicted at a separate New York trial earlier this year. He faces multiple charges of murder and has two co-defendants, Abu Anas al-Libi, who was snatched from the streets of Tripoli by US special forces last year and another man also extradited from Britain, Khalid al-Fawwaz.
Manhattan US Attorney Preet Bharara said at the time of their extradition that Mr Bary and his co-defendants were “at the nerve centres of al-Qa’ida’s acts of terror”. He added that “they caused blood to be shed, lives to be lost, and families to be shattered”.
The criminal complaints say that Mr Bary’s fingerprints had been found at a location from where a fax message was sent to the US authorities claiming responsibility for the embassy bombings.
The Egyptian-born father was given asylum by Britain in 1993.
After a failed attempt by the British authorities to link Mr Bary to the twin embassy bombings, he was indicted by the US and taken into custody in Britain in 1998 pending extradition that came a full 14 years later. It was against that background that any anti-Western prejudices and resentments could have taken root inside the young son.
Last week, lawyers for Mr Bary asked the court that he not be tried alongside Mr al-Libi, who was free for most of the time – including for the 9/11 attacks on New York – when he was behind bars in Britain. “During that time span many Americans, and particularly those living in and near New York City, experienced on an enormous scale a world in which terrorism specifically associated with Muslims affected their personal lives,” they said.
“In the charged atmosphere of post 9/11 New York, Mr. Bary would be substantially prejudiced by a joint trial,” with al-Libi, the lawyers went on.”
“James Foley Video Had A Change Of Actor – Expert Points Out
By Athena Yenko | August 26, 2014 4:08 PM EST
A forensics expert points out hints that the James Foley beheading video was edited to give way to a change of actor.
Whiles experts has no doubt that Foley was actually killed, they were one in saying that the video showing his execution was edited to suit whatever purpose it wants to serve.

A masked Islamic State militant holding a knife speaks next to man purported to be U.S. journalist James Foley at an unknown location in this still file image from an undated video posted on a social media website. Britain is close to identifying a suspected British national shown beheading American journalist James Foley in a video released by Islamic State militants last week, the British ambassador to the United States said on August 24, 2014.

According to Ross Patel, a forensic expert, the change in stature of the man masked in black was a giveaway that there is another man or a second militant that acted the part. The second man could be the actual killer.
Patel pointed out that an obvious edit made it possible to conceal the appearance of the second man.
“There’s definitely a change of actor. There are noticeable, there are subtle but there are also noticeable changes in their build, their physical appearance,” the expert said.
Patel suggested that for investigators to track down the man in the video, the measurements of his face can be compared through databases of passport photos.
Patel was keen to observe that the knife being held by the man in the video has dimensions and style different from the knife left beside Foley’s dead body and decapitated head. Furthermore, the man’s pistol was holstered underneath his left armpit which suggests that he was right handed. However, the beheader who appeared in the video was left-handed.
Curiously, the whole footage appeared to be edited using “slick post-production techniques,” according to an international forensic science company, which requested not to be named.
“I think it has been staged. My feeling is that the execution may have happened after the camera was stopped,” the company’s analysis of the video published by The Times reads.
Video experts, who had also spoken with The Times, observed that some portions of the video have play-acting.
In the instance that Foley’s beheading video was elaborately edited using advance equipments, it will be logical to ask next as to how and where the ISIS gets its funding.
The group owns cash amounting to $2 billion amassed from private donations, taxes, ransoms and stolen millions of money from big infrastructures that the group had been seizing, The Guardian reports.
There is no way to determine the exact amount of funding that the group is getting, according to Australian National University’s Middle East terrorism expert Dr Rodger Shanahan.
Shanahan said that it is a known fact that the group is amassing money from the Gulf to Syria, or their sales of oil from the locations that they now control. But as for the exact amount of money coming in, no one can definitely know “unless you’re privy to their books of account.”
Calling itself as a caliphate means that the group has its capacity to do everything that a government does as “the notion of holding dams is as much about claiming to be a government as it is about revenue raising,” he said.

Time called on Serco’s NPL contract”
By Gill Plimmer
Serco, the FTSE 100 outsourcing company, has lost its contract to run the National Physical Laboratory – which built the first atomic clock – after the government said it would seek academic partners to take over the centre instead.
The laboratory has been managed by Serco on a profit-share basis since 1994. But David Willetts, science minister, has decided that the government can “encourage greater interaction with businesses” by ending the contract in March 2014 [Now you know why MH Flight 370 was disappeared], when the company’s 17-year tenure comes to an end.”
