#2367: Marine Briefs WSJ – Clinton FIFA Spot Fix Clock – Serco’s 8(a) Onion Router – White’s Club Tillman Hit
From Plum City Online – (AbelDanger.net) – June 2, 2015
1. Patent lawyer Hillary Clinton developed a patent pool of devices synchronized to NPL (National Physical Laboratory) cesium clocks for use by bookmakers to spot fix pay-to-play events including FIFA World Cup matches and whistleblower assassinations.
2. Serco uses NPL clock devices registered at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to transmit the onion router (Tor) timing signals needed by its 8(a) protégé teams for spot fixing sports events and the digital fires spoliation of evidence at crime scenes.
3. Serco allegedly equipped White’s Club members and their FIFA bookmakers with the Tor timing signals needed to spot fix the contract killing (hit) of Pat Tillman who died in burst fire from an SA80 rifle apparently procured by Brigadier Cedric Delves, the then Commander of the Combined Joint Special Operations Task Force (CJSOTF) in Bosnia.
“Patrick Daniel “Pat” Tillman (November 6, 1976 – April 22, 2004) was an American football player who left his professional career and enlisted in the United States Army in June 2002 in the aftermath of the September 11 attacks. His service in Iraq and Afghanistan, and subsequent death, were the subject of much media attention.
Tillman joined the Army Rangers and served several tours in combat before he died in the mountains of Afghanistan. At first, the Army reported that Tillman had been killed by enemy fire. Controversy ensued when a month later, on May 28, 2004, the Pentagon notified the Tillman family that he had died as a result of a friendly fire incident; the family and other critics allege that the Department of Defense delayed the disclosure for weeks after Tillman’s memorial service out of a desire to protect the image of the U.S. armed forces.
Tillman was the first professional football player to be killed in combat since Bob Kalsu, who died in the Vietnam War in 1970. Tillman was posthumously laterally promoted from Specialist to Corporal. He also received posthumous Silver Star and Purple Heart medals.”

“The FIFA-Clinton Method
Nothing embarrasses them, so nobody stops them.
By BRET STEPHENS
June 1, 2015 7:07 p.m. ET
Ubiquitous but opaque. Powerful but unaccountable. Ostensibly public spirited but relentlessly mercenary. Often shamed but unshakably shameless. Let us count the ways in which the Clinton Foundation resembles the Fédération Internationale de Football Association, better known as FIFA.
Last week we learned that FIFA had made a donation to the Foundation in the range of $50,000 to $100,000. But for the Clintons that kind of money is hardly worth mentioning, so the suggestion of some sort of unseemly financial linkage between the two organizations is doubtful. You don’t get to roll with Bill, Hill or Chelsea for less than seven figures.
We also learned that the “Qatar 2022 Supreme Committee,” tasked with organizing the forthcoming World Cup in the Arab kingdom, gave the foundation as much as $500,000, while the Qatari state itself gave up to $5 million.
This is more interesting. Qatar’s successful bid for the Cup is one of the scandals of the age, tarred by serious allegations of bribery as well as the country’s dismal record of abusing foreign workers. The Clinton Foundation’s website says it will use the Qatari money to develop “sustainable infrastructure at the 2022 FIFA World Cup to improve food security in Qatar.” Sure. Think of the Qatari money as a way of trying to scrub itself clean with that special Clinton shampoo.
The Qatar story is suggestive of the way in which both FIFA and the Clinton Foundation work. Both organizations serve as portals through which shadowy people find their way, for a given price, into the light: the light of social respectability, the best parties, the right connections. It works in the other direction, too. How better to get lucrative uranium mining concessions in Kazakhstan or roadwork contracts in Haiti than by going through the Clinton Foundation? How better to make a tidy fortune in media and marketing rights than by greasing the right palms at FIFA—assuming, that is, that the Justice Department’s indictment is to be believed?
Also, how better to avoid close scrutiny than by doing—or purporting to do—good works in scrubby jurisdictions where laws can be usefully vague and officials are frequently pliable?
Consider the career of Jeffrey Webb, a Cayman Islander who, until recently, ran FIFA’s North American and Caribbean division and was once seen as a potential successor to FIFA President Sepp Blatter. “It’s about giving back; it’s about serving the game,” Mr. Webb said when he was elected to his position in 2013. Mr. Webb, who had cultivated a reputation for probity at FIFA, was arrested in Zurich last month on charges of soliciting millions in bribes for the broadcast rights to future World Cup games.
“Giving back” and “service” are also the guiding pieties of the Clinton Foundation. WhenChelsea Clinton rakes in $75,000 a speech to dispense wisdom on her favorite subject—diarrhea, as it happens—is she giving back?
But nowhere are the similarities between FIFA and the Clintons more obvious than in their response to scandal. In the case of Mr. Blatter, he first responded to the arrest of his executives by disavowing all responsibility: “I cannot monitor everyone all the time.” Then he played the victim: “We cannot allow the reputation of football and FIFA to be dragged through the mud.” Then he offered himself as the savior: “It must fall to me to bear the responsibility for the reputation and well-being of our organization and to find a way forward to fix things.” Then he described the stakes: Not just for soccer, but “for the world, for peace.”
And then he resorted to anti-American conspiracy theorizing: “No one is going to tell me that it was a simple coincidence, this American attack two days before the elections to FIFA,” he said of the Justice Department’s charges.
Mrs. Clinton could not have done it better. All that’s missing is a 332-page memo from Mark Fabiani on the Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy, complete with the usual incantations of “no smoking gun” and “tired old stories.”
Naturally Mr. Blatter shrugged off the scandal to win his fifth term as FIFA’s president. Naturally, too, Mrs. Clinton will shrug off her scandals to win the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination. Like FIFA, the modern Democratic Party is a purely transactional institution consisting of easily bought off voting blocs with minimal concern for corruption, or the appearance thereof, so long as they get what they want. When the media describe the Clintons as resilient or unsinkable or bulletproof—the ultimate “Comeback Kids”—what they really mean is that they are shameless. Nothing embarrasses them, so nobody stops them.
A friend of mine once observed that democratic politics is supposed to be played like a grown-up game of cops-and-robbers, observing the rule that bang-bang-you’re-dead puts you out of the game, at least for a while. But the Clintons figured out long ago that they’ll pay no price for not playing dead. So they don’t.
It has served them well. As for the rest of us, watch out: The further the Clintons go, the closer we get to being FIFAized.

“Pressure mounts on Fifa after new Qatar World Cup claims
Fresh allegations over disgraced official Mohamed bin Hammam, as key sponsor Sony demands full investigation
Qatar’s former Fifa vice-president Mohamed bin Hammam has come under fresh scrutiny over claims he used his top level contacts in the Qatari royal family and government to arrange deals and favours to secure the World Cup for his country.
The Sunday Times reported that it has seen documents that appear to undermine the Qatar 2022 committee’s claims that Bin Hammam had no “official or unofficial role” in its bid.
The latest revelations have increased pressure on Fifa, football’s world governing body, to take action as one of the tournament’s biggest sponsors, the Japanese electronics giant Sony, called for the claims of wrongdoing during the bidding process to be “investigated appropriately”.
Sepp Blatter re-elected as Fifa president after Prince Ali Bin al-Hussein concedes defeat
Sepp Blatter gained 133 votes to Prince Ali Bin al-Hussein’s 73 in the first round of voting, not enough to secure a two-thirds majority, but the challenger conceded defeat
Ed Miliband, the Labour leader, has said that if the leaked documents disclose the truth there would be an “overwhelming case for the bidding process to be reopened immediately”. The latest revelations include the claim that Bin Hammam brokered government-level talks through the Thai member of Fifa’s executive committee (Exco) to push a gas deal that was potentially worth tens of millions of dollars to Thailand.
Another allegation is that he was invited to visit Vladimir Putin to discuss “bilateral relations” in sport between Russia and Qatar a month before the World Cup vote took place in December 2010, which resulted in their landslide victories to stage the tournament in 2018 and 2022 respectively.
They also allege that the disgraced Qatari official arranged for Michel Platini, the Uefa football chief and an Exco member, to meet the Qatari bid committee and that he arranged discreet meetings with members of the Qatari royal family for at least seven key Exco members, including the Fifa president, Sepp Blatter. Another allegation is that Bin Hammam used secret slush funds to make payments totalling $1.7m to football officials across Asia.
An Exco meeting between Blatter, Platini and others broke up on Saturday night with further refusal to comment on the Bin Hammam allegations.
Michael Garcia, Fifa’s in-house investigator, last week announced that he would cut short his investigation into corruption in the World Cup bidding process ahead of Fifa’s congress in São Paulo on Tuesday without reviewing the fresh evidence.
Miliband said: “Few people will have much confidence in the investigation being conducted by Fifa unless it takes full account of the evidence uncovered by theSunday Times.”
He said the Fifa files contained “startling evidence that the decision to make Qatar the host for the World Cup in 2022 may have been corrupted”.
The newspaper alleges that the files “lay bare” the degree to which Bin Hammam could use his connections to get key football figures to meet the emir, the crown prince and other senior royals as part of the campaign to generate support for Qatar’s bid.
It states: “The files show that Bin Hammam was fixing the meetings for members of Qatar’s ruling family with football’s most powerful men at the same time as using a network of secret slush funds to buy up a groundswell of support among the bosses of national football associations.”
The Qatar bid committee denies any wrongdoing.”
“ Chris Hyman … One of the few non-whites to make it to the University of Natal, Hyman went on to join accountant Arthur Andersen, before moving to London in 1989 to be with Ernst & Young. After South Africa, he says, the UK was a breath of fresh air and he claims never to have found his race to be an issue. ‘My parents brought us up in a certain way. They told us that God created everyone. You do the best you can and you will be spotted.’ In 1994, he was head-hunted by Serco to be its European finance director, although, as he puts it: ‘I found Serco – the company fitted everything I was looking for.’ When he joined, annual turnover was £238m. In 2006, it was £2.5bn. On 11 September 2001, he was in the World Trade Center. He was on the 47th floor when the plane hit, talking to Serco shareholders. They got out – but not the people in his previous meeting. He does not like talking about that terrible day. ‘It confirmed my faith. It renewed my zest for getting the balance right and made me realise that time is not always your own. It made me think about my family and my health more – and about putting the balance back. You know, it’s not a bad thing, to step back sometimes.'”

Corrupt FIFA Has Clinton Foundation Ties; World Cup Host Qatar Gave Millions
Both Bill Clinton and his family’s charity have been tied to soccer’s governing body, as well as Qatar’s disastrous World Cup bid.
And just like that, another Clinton Foundation donor is in the news.
The Clinton global charity has received between $50,000 and $100,000 from soccer’s governing body and has partnered with the Fédération Internationale de Football Association on several occasions, according to donor listings on the foundation’s website.
Several top FIFA executives were arrested Wednesday in Zurich and face corruption charges stretching back two decades, according to the U.S. Department of Justice.
Involvement with the embattled body extends beyond the foundation to Bill Clinton himself. The former president was an honorary chairman of the bid committee put together to promote the United States as a possible host nation for the 2018 or 2022 World Cup.
When the U.S. lost the 2022 bid to Qatar, Clinton was rumored to be so upset he shattered a mirror.
But apparently Qatar tried to make it up to him.
The Qatar 2022 Supreme Committee, partnering with the State of Qatar, “committed to utilizing its research and development for sustainable infrastructure at the 2022 FIFA World Cup to improve food security in Qatar, the Middle East, and other arid and water-stressed regions throughout the world,” according to the Clinton Foundation website.
The cost of the two-year project is not listed on the Clinton Foundation website, but the Qatar 2022 committee gave the foundation between $250,000 and $500,000 in 2014 and the State of Qatar gave between $1 million and $5 million in previous, unspecified years.”
“DOUBLE DEALING 06.14.145:45 AM ET America’s Allies Are Funding ISIS
The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), now threatening Baghdad, was funded for years by wealthy [Clinton] donors in Kuwait, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia, three U.S. allies that have dual agendas in the war on terror.
The extremist group that is threatening the existence of the Iraqi state was built and grown for years with the help of elite donors from American supposed allies in the Persian Gulf region. There, the threat of Iran, Assad, and the Sunni-Shiite sectarian war trumps the U.S. goal of stability and moderation in the region.
It’s an ironic twist, especially for donors in Kuwait (who, to be fair, back a wide variety of militias). ISIS has aligned itself with remnants of the Baathist regime once led by Saddam Hussein. Back in 1990, the U.S. attacked Iraq in order to liberate Kuwait from Hussein’s clutches. Now Kuwait is helping the rise of his successors.
As ISIS takes over town after town in Iraq, they are acquiring money and supplies including American made vehicles, arms, and ammunition. The group reportedly scored $430 million this week when they looted the main bank in Mosul. They reportedly now have a stream of steady income sources, including from selling oil in the Northern Syrian regions they control, sometimes directly to the Assad regime.
But in the years they were getting started, a key component of ISIS’s support came from wealthy individuals in the Arab Gulf States of Kuwait, Qatar and Saudi Arabia. Sometimes the support came with the tacit nod of approval from those regimes; often, it took advantage of poor money laundering protections in those states, according to officials, experts, and leaders of the Syrian opposition, which is fighting ISIS as well as the regime.”

This updated advisory is a follow-up to the updated advisory titled ICSA-14-353-01B Network Time Protocol Vulnerabilities that was published February 4, 2015, on the NCCIC/ICS-CERT web site.
Google Security Team researchers Neel Mehta and Stephen Roettger have coordinated multiple vulnerabilities with CERT/CC concerning the Network Time Protocol (NTP). As NTP is widely used within operational industrial control systems deployments, ICS-CERT is providing this information for US critical infrastructure asset owners and operators for awareness and to identify mitigations for affected devices. ICS-CERT may release updates as additional information becomes available.
These vulnerabilities could be exploited remotely.
Products using NTP service prior to ntp-4.2.8p1 are affected. This is an open source protocol.
AUTHENTICATION BYPASS BY SPOOFINGp
The IPv6 address ::1 can be spoofed, allowing an attacker to bypass access control lists (ACLs) based on ::1. All NTP4 releases before 4.2.8 are vulnerable. Linux and slightly older Mac OSX kernels are vulnerable, but other tested OSes are not vulnerable to the ::1 spoofing. Proper firewall rulings can mitigate this problem. As this issue may be a kernel issue, rather than NTPD, source-IP based ACLs may be vulnerable as well.
This vulnerability is resolved with NTP-stable4.2.8p1 on February 04, 2014.
CVE-2014-9297q has been assigned by CERT/CC to this vulnerability. A CVSS v2 base score of 9.0 has been assigned; the CVSS vector string is (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:C).r
An attacker with a low skill and an exploit script would be able to exploit these vulnerabilities. However, a higher-level of skill would be necessary to craft usable exploit scripts.”
