#2430: Expert Witness for MitM USNO – Serco Crime Time – Clinton Remote Assassination Betting
1. Field McConnell is offering his support as an expert witness to class-action plaintiffs who choose to sue for wrongful deaths which can be attributed to man in the middle (MitM) attacks on the United States Naval Observatory’s (USNO) positioning, navigation and timing services to the Navy and Department of Defense.
2. In 1994, various USNO positioning, navigation and timing services to the Navy’s mission-critical operations, were outsourced to Serco whose 8(a) companies are allegedly pre-deployed to crime scenes build the bogus timelines needed to conceal murder-for-hire at mass-casualty events up to and including the Rwanda Genocide.
3. In 1994, Clinton insiders allegedly began using USNO servers installed by Serco’s 8(a) protégé company, Base One Technologies, to support remote assassination betting on the times of wrongful deaths at mass-casualty events (cf. USS Cole, AA Flight 77, Benghazi Digital Fires and GermanWings Flight 9525)
McConnell is offering his expert-witness services to plaintiffs in wrongful-death lawsuits while he and Abel Danger Research continue to expose Serco and its alleged MitM attacks on the United States Naval Observatory in his e-book “Shaking Hands With the Devil’s Clocks“.

Gore was recently screaming about Bush authorizing a wiretap program where we
intercept calls made from across the ocean into the states by Al-Qaeda members,
without a warrant.? But he didn’t bother to bring up his Clipper
Chip program did he?
Al Gore should sit down and shut up. Former Vice President Al Gore called for
an independent investigation into President Bush’s domestic spying program,
insisting that the president “repeatedly and insistently” broke the law by
eavesdropping on Americans without court approval.
tell his audience was that he not only supported eavesdropping on Americans
without court approval ? he also chaired a project designed to execute just
that in total secrecy. In short, Al Gore wanted to bug every phone, computer
and fax in America.
charged by then President Bill Clinton to run the “Clipper” project. Clipper
was a special chip designed by the National Security Agency (NSA) to be built
into all phones, computers and fax machines. Not only would Clipper provide
scrambled security, it also contained a special “exploitable feature” enabling
the NSA to monitor all phone calls without a court order.
went to work with a top secret group of Clinton advisers, called the IWG or
Interagency Working Group, and delivered a report on the Clipper project.
nexus of the long term problem is how can the government sustain its technical
ability to accomplish electronic surveillance in an advanced telecommunications
environment,” states the TOP SECRET report prepared by Gore’s Interagency
access problem for future telecommunications requires that the
vendor/manufacturing community translate the government’s requirements into a
fundamental system design criteria,” noted the Gore report.
resolution is a choice between accomplishing this objective by mandatory (i.e.,
statutory/regulatory) or voluntary means.”
is that America was to be given no choice but to be monitored by Big Brother
Al. This awful conclusion is backed by several other documents. One such
document released by the Justice Department is a March 1993 memo from Stephen
Colgate, Assistant Attorney General for Administration.
Colgate memo, Vice President Al Gore chaired a meeting with Hillary Clinton
crony Webster Hubbell, Janet Reno, Commerce Secretary Ron Brown and Leon
Panetta in March 1993. The topic of the meeting was the “AT&T Telephone
AT&T had developed secure telephones the U.S. government could not tap. The
Clinton-Gore administration secretly contracted with AT&T to keep the
phones off the market. Colgate’s memo noted that the administration was
determined to prevent the American public from having private phone

provide security for sensitive conversations,” wrote Colgate.
want to purchase the first production run of these devices to prevent their
proliferation. They are difficult to decipher and are a deterrent to wiretaps.”
memo is the first reference to government-developed monitoring devices that
would be required for all Americans.
1993 Colgate memo to Hubbell, “FBI, NSA and NSC want to push legislation which
would require all government agencies and eventually everyone in the U.S. to
use a new public-key based cryptography method.”
embraced the Clipper chip and the concept of monitoring America at all costs.
In 1994, Gore wrote a glowing letter supporting the Clipper chip and the
government-approved wiretap design.
the Clipper Chip, future key escrow schemes must contain safeguards to provide
for key disclosures only under legal authorization and should have audit
procedures to ensure the integrity of the system. We also want to assure users
of key escrow encryption products that they will not be subject to unauthorized
electronic surveillance,” wrote Gore in his July 20, 1994 letter to
Representative Maria Cantwell.
1994, federal officials were keenly aware that the Clipper chip design did not
have safeguards against unauthorized surveillance. In fact, NASA turned down
the Clipper project because the space agency knew of the flawed design.
Cooper, NASA Associate Administrator for Management Systems and Facilities,
wrote: “There is no way to prevent the NSA from routinely monitoring all
[Clipper] encrypted traffic. Moreover, compromise of the NSA keys, such as in
the Walker case, could compromise the entire [Clipper] system.”
Soviet spy John Walker, who is serving life in prison for disclosing U.S. Navy
secret codes. In 1993 Ms. Cooper did not know of Clinton Chinagate scandals,
the Lippo Group, John Huang or Webster Hubbell, but her prophetic prediction
was not so remarkable in retrospect.
ahead, continuing to support a flawed design despite warnings that the design
could “compromise” every computer in the U.S.
a secret meeting of CIA Directer John Deutch, FBI Director Louis Freeh and
Attorney General Janet Reno states, “Last summer, the Vice President agreed to
explore public acceptance of a key escrow policy but did not rule out other
approaches, although none seem viable at this point.”
on to detail how the Gore team decided they would attempt to steer the Clipper
chip into foreign markets.? Funny how Gore said Bush’s surveillance is “a
threat to the very structure of our government” but his own plans were FAR more
intrusive.? Guess he has a short memory.”

Time Protocol (NTP) is a networking protocol for clock synchronization between
computer systems over packet-switched,
variable-latency data networks. In operation since before 1985, NTP is one
of the oldest Internet
protocols in current use.
NTP was originally designed by David L. Mills of the University
of Delaware, who still oversees
its development. … While no one doubts
the contribution of NTP to network performance, several security concerns have
arisen in late 2014. Previously, researchers became aware that NTP servers can
be susceptible to man-in-the-middle
attacks unless packets are
cryptographically signed for authentication. The computational overhead involved can make this impractical on
busy servers, particularly during denial of service attacks. NTP message spoofing can
be used to move clocks on client computers and allow a number of attacks based
on bypassing of cryptographic key expiration.”

It also alleged that the group planned to steer a further 780 million dollars towards their favored contractor.”
“On October 6, 2000, the NMCI contract was awarded to Electronic Data Systems (EDS), now HP Enterprise Services (HP). Secretary of the Navy Gordon England summed up the Navy’s IT Environment prior to the commencement of NMCI: “We basically had 28 separate commands budgeting, developing, licensing, and operating IT autonomously. It was inefficient and from the larger Department perspective, produced results that were far from optimal.”
NMCI consolidated roughly 6,000 networks—some of which could not e-mail, let alone collaborate with each other—into a single integrated and secure IT environment. HP updated more than 100,000 desktop and laptop PCs in 2007. The program also consolidated an ad hoc network of more than 8,000 applications to 500 in four years and 15,003 logistics and readiness systems to 2,759 over a two-year period.
Sub-contractors to HP include:
Harris Corporation (which acquired Multimax formerly known as Netco Government Services and WAM!NET), which provided enterprise network infrastructure design and support until its contract expired in 2014.
Verizon, which provides wide area network (WAN) connectivity.
HP also provides the security services once provided by Raytheon.
“HP also has worked with more than 400 small businesses, with 5 percent for small disadvantaged businesses, 5 percent for women-owned small businesses and 1.5 percent for HUBZone small businesses. Since its inception, NMCI has exceeded the minimum 40% small business objective set for the contract.
The Department of the Navy has shown no desire to scale back or cancel the program. On 24 March 2006 the Navy exercised its three-year, $3 billion option to extend the contract through September 2010.
In April 2006, users began to log on with Common Access Cards (CACs), a smartcard-based logon system called the Cryptographic Log On (CLO). In October 2008, NMCI’s prime contractor HP posted a set of procedures so Apple Mac users can access NMCI’s public-facing Web services, such as the e-mail and calendar functions, using their CAC readers with their Macs. The workaround also works with other Defense Department CAC-enabled networks. Alternatively, NMCI and all other CAC-authenicated DoD websites may be accessed using LPS-Public.”
“Government still paying G4S and Serco millions for tagging despite ban Alan Travis Home affairs editor

The Ministry of Justice is still paying security firms G4S and Serco millions of pounds every month for supplying electronic tagging equipment, more than a year after both companies were barred from running the contract.
Both companies faced criminal investigations by the Serious Fraud Office over allegations of overcharging that led to them repaying nearly £180m.
The continuing monthly payments to the two companies were uncovered by an analysis of Ministry of Justice (MoJ) data by the Centre for Crime and Justice Studies which shows that G4S was paid a total of £8.7m between March 2014 – when it lost the tagging contract – and February 2015. Serco was paid £4.5m over the same period.
The electronic monitoring tags are used to enforce curfews on more than 100,000 offenders each year. The outsourcing giant Capita took over the contract on an interim basis in April last year.
In July 2014, Capita and three other companies were named as the winners of a £265m six-year contract to supply the next generation of satellite tracking tags, which would allow dangerous and repeat offenders to be monitored around the clock.”
