#2356: Marine Links Serco’s Digital Fires To 8(a) Tor In The Middle, Jade-Helm Joint-Chiefs Hack
Plum City – (AbelDanger.net): United States Marine Field McConnell has linked Serco’s Digital Fires training program to the SBA 8(a) companies (ICE, Inc. and VATC) which have allegedly been hired and coordinated through the onion router (Tor) network to set up a man-in-the middle hack during the Jade Helm exercise of The Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS).
McConnell has explained how Serco used an 8(a) Tor clock on Boeing E-4B aircraft for the 9/11 hack of the specially modified C-135 [‘Speckled Trout’] carrying General Henry Shelton, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, to a NATO conference in Budapest, Hungary, before his scheduled return via London where he was to be knighted by the Queen [Marines ask “Why?”].
McConnell notes that Serco‘s FAA Contract Towers must have used the 8(a) Tor clock to relay man-in-the-middle messages via the E-4B to Shelton‘s Speckled Trout which was denied permission to enter US airspace after 9:45 am on 9/11 and only landed in the US at 4:40 p.m.!
General Shelton only reached the Pentagon’s National Military Command Center at 5:40 p.m. by which time Serco had completed the first phase of its digital fires attack on the United States through an 8(a) Tor man-in-the-middle hack of the Joint Chiefs and President Bush’s Red Switch Network.
McConnell is warning Marine General Joseph Dunford that Serco is preparing a sequel digital fires attack on the Joint Chiefs by installing 8(a) Tor clocks under a phony Marine Air Ground Task Force (MAGTF) Training Systems Support contract at 6 sites around the world so that Serco 8(a) protégés can switch the Jade Helm exercise into live-fire hack in under 60 minutes.

[GIESEMANN, 2008, PP. 20, 22; SHELTON, LEVINSON, AND MCCONNELL, 2010, PP. 430-433] Shelton is scheduled to attend a meeting of the Military Committee—NATO’s highest military authority—in Budapest, Hungary, on September 12, to discuss the situation in the Balkans, the European Security and Defense Identity, and NATO’s new force structure. On his return journey, he is set to stop in London, Britain, to be knighted by the Queen. [NORTH ATLANTIC TREATY ORGANIZATION, 9/10/2001; NORTH ATLANTIC TREATY ORGANIZATION, 9/11/2001; SHELTON, LEVINSON, AND MCCONNELL, 2010, PP. 430]Shelton takes off from Andrews Air Force Base, just outside Washington, DC, on a specially modified C-135 (the military version of a Boeing 707) nicknamed “Speckled Trout.” Normally he flies on a VIP Boeing 757 often used by the vice president, but that aircraft is presently unavailable, so he is flying instead on the C-135, which is usually reserved for the Air Force chief of staff. Those accompanying Shelton on the flight include his wife, Carolyn; his executive assistant, Colonel Doug Lute; his aides, Master Sergeant Mark Jones and Lieutenant Commander Suzanne Giesemann; and his personal security agent, Chief Warrant Officer Marshall McCants. [GIESEMANN, 2008, PP. 20-22; SHELTON, LEVINSON, AND MCCONNELL, 2010, PP. 431, 434] When Shelton is out of the country, General Richard Myers, the vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, is designated by law as acting chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in his place. Shelton will later recall, “Until I crossed back into United States airspace, all the decisions would be [Myers’s] to make, in conjunction with Secretary [of Defense Donald] Rumsfeld and the president.” [MYERS, 2009, PP. 10; SHELTON, LEVINSON, AND MCCONNELL, 2010, PP. 432] After learning of the attacks in New York, Shelton will give the order for his plane to return to the US (see (8:50 a.m.-10:00 a.m.) September 11, 2001). [GIESEMANN, 2008, PP. 22-23; SHELTON, LEVINSON, AND MCCONNELL, 2010, PP. 431] However, the plane will repeatedly be denied permission to enter US airspace (see (After 9:45 a.m.) September 11, 2001) and will only land back in the US at 4:40 p.m. (see 4:40 p.m. September 11, 2001).

VATC PROVIDES EXERCISE SUPPORT TO FLINTLOCK 14
April 2, 2014
Tampa, Florida – Visual Awareness Technologies & Consulting (VATC) was recently selected to provide exercise support during FLINTLOCK 14, an annual regional exercise among African, Western, and U.S. Counterterrorism forces. Directed by the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and sponsored by Joint-Special Operations Task Force-Trans Sahara (JSOTF-TS), the Special Operations Forces (SOF) exercise develops security capabilities and strengthens bonds among exercise participants. This year’s event, planned by Special Operations Command Africa (SOCAFRICA), had more than 500 participants from Burkina Faso, Canada, Chad, France, Italy, Mauritania, the Netherlands, Niger, Nigeria, Norway, Senegal, Spain, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
VATC’s support included world-class Counter-Terrorism (CT), Foreign Internal Defense (FID), and Counter-Insurgency (COIN) subject matter expertise from SOF leaders and operators, scenario development based on operational realities and existent and emergent threats, and scripting of customer tailored orders and injects to include Campaign Plans, Operational Orders, Fragmentary Orders, Order of Battle or Pattern Analysis Databases, Intelligence Fusion products, and Targeting Data.

A member of the Democratic Party, Mineta most recently served in President George W. Bush‘s Cabinet as the United States Secretary of Transportation, the only Democratic Cabinet Secretary in the Bush administration. On June 23, 2006, Mineta announced his resignation after more than five years as Secretary of Transportation, effective July 7, 2006, making him the longest-serving Transportation Secretary in the Department’s history. On July 10, 2006, Hill & Knowlton, a public relations firm, announced that Mineta would join it as a partner. On August 10, 2010, it was announced that Mineta would join L&L Energy, Inc as Vice Chairman.Mineta also served as President Bill Clinton‘s Secretary of Commerce for the last six months of his term (July 2000–January 2001). Save for a span of five days between the end of Clinton’s term and Bush’s appointments, Mineta spent nearly six full years as a Cabinet member.… Early life, career,
Mineta was born in San Jose, California, to Japanese immigrant parents who were not allowed to become U.S. citizens at that time due to the Asian Exclusion Act. During World War II the Mineta family was interned for several years at “Area 24, 7th Barrack, Unit B” in the Heart Mountain internment camp near Cody, Wyoming, along with thousands of other Japanese immigrants andJapanese Americans. Upon arrival to the camp, Mineta, a baseball fan, had his baseball bat confiscated by authorities because it could be used as a weapon. Many years later, after Mineta was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives, a Los Angeles man sent Mineta a $1,500 bat that was once owned byHank Aaron, which Mineta was forced to send back as it violated the House ban on accepting gifts valued over $250. Mineta was quoted as saying, “The damn government’s taken my bat again”.“
“Loan Improvement Jan 31, 2001 SBA modernizes to help feed its growing programs BY PATRICIA DAUKANTAS | GCN STAFF Under a five-year plan for overhauling its information technology systems, the Small Business Administration recently acquired new software for financial and other administrative tasks. .. In the first phase of the modernization, the agency has upgraded systems for managing its extensive portfolio of guaranteed loans, chief operating officer Kristine Marcy [Field McConnell’s sister] said. SBA processed its first electronic loan last November through its Sacramento, Calif., office and plans to add more private lenders during fiscal 2001. .. Marcy said. Banks had been asking SBA to make faster decisions on loan guarantees. The agency decided to aim for a [onion router] turnaround time of one hour. In the second phase of modernization, SBA is revamping its financial, human resources, procurement and travel systems with Web-enabled Oracle Corp. applications. .. The second-phase integrator, SRA International Inc. of Arlington, Va., has subcontracted with a number of small firms for things such as training and data conversion [Note Serco protégé Base One opened a document conversion center in the Bronx in 2006, presumably to deal with Obama’s passport problems]. .. In the final phase of the modernization, SBA will upgrade the computers in its 8(a) Business Development Program, which assists small businesses in competing for government contracts, Marcy said. The agency wants to be able to improve its tracking of clients’ successes and failures [through to liquidation by the SBA’s preferred lenders and sureties such as HSBC and Travelers Casualty and Surety Company of America – note merged with Citigroup and John Deutch’s CIA friends!].”
“Office of Capital Access | Resources The Preferred Lenders Program (PLP) The Preferred Lenders Program (PLP) is part of SBA’s effort to streamline the procedures necessary to provide financial assistance to the small business community. Under this program, SBA delegates the final credit decision and most servicing and liquidation authority and responsibility to carefully selected PLP lenders. SBA, however, will continue to check loan eligibility criteria. Lenders are considered for PLP status based on their record with SBA, and must have demonstrated a proficiency in processing and servicing SBA-guaranteed loans. In the event of payment default by the borrower and the need for enforced collections, the PLP lender agrees to liquidate all business assets before asking SBA to honor its guaranty.”
“The 8(a) Business Development Program assists in the development of small businesses owned and operated by individuals who are socially and economically disadvantaged, such as women and minorities. The following ethnic groups are classified as eligible: Black Americans; Hispanic Americans; Native Americans (American Indians, Eskimos, Aleuts, or Native Hawaiians); Asian Pacific Americans (persons with origins from Burma, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Brunei, Japan, China (including Hong Kong), Taiwan, Laos, Cambodia (Kampuchea), Vietnam, Korea, The Philippines, U.S. Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands (Republic of Palau), Republic of the Marshall Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, Samoa, Macao, Fiji, Tonga, Kiribati, Tuvalu, or Nauru); Subcontinent Asian Americans (persons with origins from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Bhutan, the Maldives Islands or Nepal). In 2011, the SBA, along with the FBI and the IRS, uncovered a massive scheme to defraud this program. Civilian employees of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, working in concert with an employee of Alaska Native Corporation Eyak Technology LLC allegedly submitted fraudulent bills to the program, totaling over 20 million dollars, and kept the money for their own use. It also alleged that the group planned to steer a further 780 million dollars towards their favored contractor.”
McConnell is standing by to brief Marine General Dunford, Obama‘s nominee as the 19th Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff on how to thwart a Serco digital fires attack during the Jade Helm exercise where a Tor in the middle attack on the Joint Chiefs has allegedly been scripted by Serco protégés, ICE, Inc. and Visual Awareness Technologies & Consulting (VATC).

“HOW TOR ENABLED SILK ROAD Central to the operation of Silk Road was a complex underground computer routing system known as Tor. Ulbricht allegedly used the system to hide the location of the computer servers that hosted the Silk Road website. But Tor is no secret, especially to the U.S. government. The U.S. Naval Research Lab developed onion routing, the concept behind Tor, as a way to protect naval communication so an enemy could not trace computer messages and detect a ship’s position. Every computer on the Internet has an Internet Protocol, or IP, address that can be used to find its physical location. Tor ensures privacy by randomly routing computer messages through several places on the Internet, wrapped in layers of encryption, so no single point can link the source to the destination. .. Tor also hosts black markets, such as Sheep Marketplace and Black Market Reloaded, that deal in guns, drugs, stolen credit card numbers and child pornography. The United States seeks the extradition of Eric Marques, who was arrested in Ireland for allegedly hosting a website on the Tor network that allowed people to share child pornography. Silk Road created a private network through Tor by using software to build encrypted connections through relays on the network. The system is created so no single relay, or server, knew the complete path. A computer algorithm on Tor generates a complex Web address that ends in .onion and can be accessed only by downloading Tor software. … DEA agents learned of Silk Road within months after it went online. In June 2011, Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., called on federal agents to investigate it. Court papers indicate federal agents began making hundreds of undercover purchases from the site in November 2011.”
