#2761: Conair Sisters USIS Visas – 8(a) Kerry’s BleachBit Clinton – Serco’s MH Zulu Crash
United States Marine Field McConnell
Plum City Online – (AbelDanger.net)

1. Abel Danger (AD) claims that The Sisters – the feminist custodians of a USIS kill list – met in the Great Hall of Justice on October 22, 1996 to organize the issue of flight-school visas for foreign students and an SBA program of modifications to the Justice Prisoner and Alien Transport System (‘Conair’) aircraft for the remote hijacking of passenger planes.
2. AD claims that John Kerry recently authorized the use of BleachBit by a woman-owned 8(a) company Base One Technologies (formed Feb 15, 1994, file #1795583) to destroy evidence of State Department kill lists or missions on Hillary Clinton’s private server in her Chappaqua home.
3. AD claims that Serco sent its National Security Advisor (NSA) Sister, Maureen Baginski to the October 1996 meeting to explain an 8(a) liquidation program for the USIS kill list where the Sisters are enabled to crash remotely-droned aircraft in Zulu time (cf. MH17 in East Ukraine).
4. United States Marine Field McConnell offers to show Donald Trump how to bring Sisters with custody of the USIS kill list and the guidance and control systems for the drones, to justice for thousands of wrongful deaths on passenger aircraft since the 1996 meeting when the Sisters decided to reinvent government in Zulu time.
“Digital Fires Instructor Serco – Camp Pendleton, CA Uses information derived from all military disciplines (e.g., aviation, ground combat, command and control, combat service support, intelligence, and opposing forces) to determine changes in enemy capabilities, vulnerabilities, and probable courses of action.”
“The Facts Come into View: What were Kiev’s Fighter Jets Doing? The narrative of the US and the puppet authorities in Kiev was feeble and horribly put together from the start. Not only was there an absence of evidence that the Donetsk People’s Republic or Russia were behind the attack on MH17, which killed all two hundred and eighty-three passengers and fifteen crew members on board (a total of two hundred and ninety-eight people), but the evidence indicated the US-supported puppet Ukrainian authorities in Kiev as the culprits responsible for the downing of the Malaysian passenger jet.
.. Lie after lie, the modus operandi of the US government is the same. How much credence can people give to John Kerry and the US government when they claimed that the Syrian government was behind the chemical attack on Ghouta in late-2013, but the facts proved that it was the US-supported insurgents that were behind the chemical attack?
Minutes before reporting about the Ukrainian military’s involvement, at 11:13 am on July 17, 2014, Carlos wrote on Twitter that he was wondering why foreign personnel entered his air traffic control tower with Kiev authorities to gather information. The Spaniard later reported at 12:00 pm, interestingly minutes after the military authorities in Kiev had notified his air traffic control tower that MH17 was downed over Donetsk, that the air traffic control tower was filled with foreign personnel. Who were these foreign personnel? Most probably they were from NATO countries and, more specifically, from the US. There is no question that the US had a role in the downing of MH17; at the very minimum Washington has knowingly and criminally worked to distort the picture of what happened to MH17. It is also important to note that Carlos described divisions among the Ukrainian soldiers in Kiev through what appeared to be upset and disgusted faces by those soldiers who reported that Kiev was responsible for the downing of MH17 whereas the Ukrainian military personnel and authorities accompanied by foreigners were busy lying and trying to spin the attack on MH17. The downing of MH17 is not the crime of Ukraine, but an act committed by US and EU proxies, embezzlers, and fanatics.
One way or another, the US government and the European Union do not have clean hands. The US accuses others of committing the actions that it itself commits. It is not Russia that bombs civilian passenger airplanes, but the United States. History is a witness to this.”
“Byron York: Hillary Clinton BleachBits her past
By BYRON YORK (@BYRONYORK) • 8/25/16 11:06 PM
While Hillary Clinton was preparing to deliver a big speech portraying Donald Trump as a racist, a figure from Clinton’s recent unhappy past — Rep. Trey Gowdy, chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi — added a new word to the 25-year vocabulary of Clinton scandals: BleachBit.
That is the name of a publicly-available utility used to delete material from a computer’s hard disk. And it’s not just for casual, quickie deletes of junk mail. It’s for when a user really wants to destroy material on a computer so that no one will be able to recover it.
According to Gowdy, BleachBit is what Clinton and her legal team used, or at least part of what her team used, to destroy the 30,000 or so emails on her secret system that she deemed “personal” from her years as secretary of state. On Thursday, after revelations that the FBI had perhaps worked its way around BleachBit to discover an additional 14,900 emails that Clinton did not hand over, Gowdy went on Fox News to discuss both that development and the FBI documents that underlay the Justice Department’s decision not to prosecute Clinton for mishandling classified information.
The public should be allowed to see those currently classified FBI documents, Gowdy said, adding that he has reviewed them all. If people were allowed to read the papers, Gowdy explained, they might well come away with questions about the wisdom of the FBI’s decision.
“I read every word of all of the witness interviews,” Gowdy told Fox. “My takeaway was this: Remember James Comey said [Clinton] was not indicted because he didn’t have sufficient evidence on the issue of intent. I didn’t see any questions on the issue of intent.”
And then there were those deleted emails. First, it’s long been known that Clinton and her lawyers — and no independent arbiter — decided what to hand over and what to destroy. Clinton famously explained that she destroyed only the emails that dealt with personal issues, like yoga or her daughter Chelsea’s wedding. But in light of new revelations about the close relationship between Clinton’s Secretary of State office and the Clinton Foundation, a question gaining urgency in recent days is whether Clinton destroyed foundation-related emails on the grounds that they were “personal.”
“That’s the $100 million question,” Gowdy told Fox’s Martha MacCallum. “I hope somebody in your line of work will ask [Clinton]: Did you consider foundation emails to be personal or work r elated? I have yet to see a single foundation email produced by the State Department that was sent by her.” Gowdy went on to reveal a few details about how Clinton destroyed the documents she did not want anyone to see. “If she considered them to be personal, then she and her lawyers had those emails deleted,” Gowdy said. “They didn’t just push the delete button. They had them deleted where even God can’t read them.”
“They were using something called BleachBit,” Gowdy continued. “You don’t use BleachBit for yoga emails or for bridesmaid’s emails. When you’re using BleachBit, it is something you really do not want the world to see.” Amid growing controversy over the Clinton Foundation, possible conflicts of interest, and allegations of access and pay-to-play, Gowdy’s words served to return the focus to what the New York Times’ Mark Landler recently called the “original sin” of the Clinton email affair: Clinton took it upon herself to decide which of her emails as Secretary of State would be preserved, and which would be destroyed.
“There wasn’t an independent authority that got to make that decision,” Landler said on NPR’s “Diane Rehm Show” Wednesday. “And by the time we found out about it, those emails were gone.”
With the help of BleachBit, we now know.
“Six months after Sept. 11, hijackers’ visa approval letters received
March 13, 2002
Posted: 5:07 AM EST (1007 GMT)
From Mark Potter and Rich Phillips CNN Miami Bureau MIAMI, Florida (CNN) — Six months to the day after Mohamed Atta and Marwan Al-Shehhi flew planes into the World Trade Center, the Immigration and Naturalization Service notified a Venice, Florida, flight school that the two men had been approved for student visas.
Rudi Dekkers of Huffman Aviation, where Atta, 33, and Al-Shehhi, 23, first trained in July 2000, showed the yellow INS forms to CNN during an interview Monday. Dekkers said he was surprised to get the forms at such a late date.
The INS had a different reaction.
“I think it is certainly embarrassing that the letters show up at this late date,” said INS spokesman Russ Bergeron. “It does serve to illustrate what we have been saying since 1995 — that the current system for collecting information and tracking foreign students is antiquated, outdated, inaccurate and untimely.” Bergeron said the INS forms made it clear that actual approval of the visas took place before the September 11 attacks.
Former INS District Director Tom Fischer told CNN that “the letters should never have been sent.” Their delivery, he said, was “a case of the right hand not knowing what the left hand was doing.”
The M-1 student visa request forms for Atta and al-Shehhi were filed by Huffman Aviation on August 29, 2000. The forms asked that the men, who had entered the United States on tourist visas, be allowed to change their visa status so they could take a $27,300 professional pilot program that would last from September 1, 2000, until September 1 the next year.
The student visa requests were actually granted months later — on July 17, 2001, for Atta, and August 9, 2001, for al-Shehhi — but postmarks indicate the letters of notification were only sent out to Huffman Aviation last week. They were received Monday, the six-month milestone of last year’s terror attacks.
The INS said it sent notification to the two men of their visa status change shortly after the requests were approved. Flight schools, Bergeron said, are routinely last to be notified.
The letters to Huffman Aviation were sent from the INS Student Processing Center run by ACS Inc. in London, Kentucky.
On October 25, 2001, the INS awarded ACS a contract to begin helping the federal agency “process the arrival and departure forms of foreign students, businessmen, and tourists visiting the United States,” according to an ACS news release from that time.
Leslie Poole, ACS’ vice president, said part of the company’s job involves helping the INS clear up its backlog. However, she said ACS only processed requests from the INS and played no role in screening any information. — CNN Producer Henry Schuster contributed to this report.”
“The long read How the Pentagon punished NSA whistleblowers
Long before Edward Snowden went public, John Crane was a top Pentagon official fighting to protect NSA whistleblowers.
Instead their lives were ruined – and so was his Snowden calls for whistleblower shield after claims by Pentagon source
Exclusive: Pentagon source goes on record against whistleblower program
by Mark Hertsgaard
Sunday 22 May 2016 15.00 BST …..
By this time, Thomas Drake had proceeded well down the path that would eventually connect him with Crane. Drake’s first day as a fully fledged employee of the National Security Agency was 11 September 2001. Although the NSA would balloon in size and budget as the US responded to the September 11 attacks, the agency already ranked as the largest, most lavishly funded spy organisation on Earth. Created in 1952, the NSA was the government’s code-breaker and all-hearing global “ear”. The NSA intercepted the communications of foreign governments and individuals and translated this raw intelligence into information usable by the CIA, the FBI and kindred government agencies.
Drake, a father of five, had worked for the NSA for 12 years as a private-sector contractor. Now, as a staff member proper, he reported directly to the NSA’s third highest ranking official, Maureen Baginski; she headed the NSA’s largest division, the Signals Intelligence Directorate, which was responsible for the interception of phone calls and other communications.
Tall, sombre, intense, Drake was a championship chess player in high school whose gift for mathematics, computers and languages made him a natural for foreign eavesdropping and the cryptographic and linguistic skills it required. During the cold war, he worked for air force intelligence, monitoring the communications of East Germany’s infamous secret police, the Stasi.
Within weeks of the September 11 attacks, Drake was assigned to prepare the NSA’s postmortem on the disaster. Congress, the news media and the public were demanding answers: what had gone wrong at the NSA and other federal agencies to allow Osama bin Laden’s operatives to conduct such a devastating attack?
As Drake interviewed NSA colleagues and scoured the agency’s records, he came across information that horrified him. It appeared that the NSA – even before September 11 – had secretly revised its scope of operations to expand its powers.
Since its inception, the NSA had been strictly forbidden from eavesdropping on domestic communications. Drake’s investigation persuaded him that the NSA was now violating this restriction by collecting information on communications within as well as outside of the United States. And it was doing so without obtaining legally required court orders.
A straight arrow since high school – he once gave the police the names of classmates he suspected of selling pot – Drake told me he felt compelled to act. “I took an oath to uphold and defend the constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic,” he explained.
To Drake, the President’s Surveillance Program, as it was known inside the George W Bush administration, recalled the mindset of the Stasi. “You don’t spend year after year listening to a police state without being affected, you just don’t,” he told me. “I remember saying to myself, ‘Wow, I don’t want this to happen in our country!’ How could you live in a society where you always have to be looking over your shoulders, not knowing who you could trust, even in your own family?”
A straight arrow since high school – Drake once gave the police the names of classmates he suspected of selling pot
Drake’s descent into a nightmare of persecution at the hands of his own government began innocently. Having uncovered evidence of apparently illegal behaviour, he did what his military training and US whistleblower law instructed: he reported the information up the chain of command. Beginning in early 2002, he shared his concerns first with a small number of high-ranking NSA officials, then with the appropriate members of Congress and staff at the oversight committees of the US Senate and House of Representatives.
Drake spent countless hours in these sessions but eventually came to the conclusion that no one in a position of authority wanted to hear what he was saying. When he told his boss, Baginski, that the NSA’s expanded surveillance following 9/11 seemed legally dubious, she reportedly told him to drop the issue: the White House had ruled otherwise.”
“Opened in 1994 as the successor to the Transitional Immigrant Visa Processing Center in Rosslyn, Va., the NVC centralizes all immigrant visa pre-processing and appointment scheduling for overseas posts. The NVC collects paperwork and fees before forwarding a case, ready for adjudication, to the responsible post.
The center also handles immigrant and fiancé visa petitions, and while it does not adjudicate visa applications, it provides technical assistance and support to visa-adjudicating consular officials overseas.
Only two Foreign Service officers, the director and deputy director, work at the center, along with just five Civil Service employees. They work with almost 500 contract employees doing preprocessing of visas, making the center one of the largest employers in the Portsmouth area.
The contractor, Serco, Inc., has worked with the NVC since its inception and with the Department for almost 18 years.
The NVC houses more than 2.6 million immigrant visa files, receives almost two million pieces of mail per year and received more than half a million petitions from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) in 2011. Its file rooms’ high-density shelves are stacked floor-to-ceiling with files, each a collection of someone’s hopes and dreams and each requiring proper handling. ….
The NVC also preprocesses the chief of mission (COM) application required for the filing of a petition for a Special Immigrant Visa (SIV). Such visas, for foreign nationals who have performed services for the U.S. government in Iraq and Afghanistan, require COM concurrence before the applicant can file a petition with USCIS. The NVC collects the requisite documents from such applicants and, when complete, forwards the package to the U.S. embassies in Baghdad or Kabul for COM approval”

“The White House travel office controversy, sometimes referred to as Travelgate, was the first major ethics controversy of the Clinton administration. It began in May 1993, when seven employees of the White House Travel Office were fired. This action was unusual because although theoretically staff employees serve at the pleasure of the President and could be dismissed without cause, in practice, such employees usually remain in their posts for many years.
The White House stated the firings were done because financial improprieties in the Travel Office operation during previous administrations had been revealed by an FBI investigation. Critics contended the firings were done to allow friends of President Bill Clinton and First Lady Hillary Clinton to take over the travel business and that the involvement of the FBI was unwarranted. Heavy media attention forced the White House to reinstate most of the employees in other jobs and remove the Clinton associates from the travel role.
Further investigations by the FBI and the Department of Justice, the White House itself, the General Accounting Office, the House Government Reform and Oversight Committee, and the Whitewater Independent Counsel all took place over the subsequent years. Travel Office Director Billy Dale was charged with embezzlement but found not guilty in 1995. In 1998, Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr exonerated Bill Clinton of any involvement in the matter.
Hillary Clinton gradually came under scrutiny for allegedly having played a central role in the firings and making false statements about her role in it. In 2000, Independent Counsel Robert Ray issued his final report on Travelgate. He sought no charges against her, saying that while some of Clinton’s statements were factually false, there was insufficient evidence that these statements were either knowingly false or that she understood that her statements led to the firings.”
“Sued for Fraud by DOJ, Security Co That Cleared Snowden Works for U.S. Immigration
APRIL 08, 2014
The federal contractor sued by the Justice Department for failing to adequately conduct government security clearances—including NSA leaker Edward Snowden—is processing sensitive immigration applications for the Obama administration.
This astounding information comes from a high-ranking government source with detailed knowledge of the arrangement. Though it‘s being investigated by the Department of Justice (DOJ) for fraud, United States Investigations Services (USIS), has been taking over a lot of administrative processing of immigration benefit applications, the inside source told Judicial Watch. The scandal-plagued company is also handling sensitive immigration files, despite its well-documented transgressions.
It’s preposterous that a company under fraud investigation is still allowed to handle sensitive government applications, JW’s source logically points out. Here’s how it happens; Most of USIS’s executives are retired officials who worked for the influential Senior Executive Service at the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM), the agency that operates and oversees nearly every government activity in dozens of federal agencies. Their connections help them land federal contracts, JW’s source says, and once they land the lucrative deals they convince the government to let them do their own quality assurance so they cut corners.
The serious corner cutting came to light after Snowden, a National Security Administration contractor, divulged thousands of classified documents to the media. USIS, which handles the bulk of background checks for government security clearances, had conducted Snowden’s background check as well as the clearance for Navy Yard shooter Aaron Alexis. Since the two breaches occurred, former USIS employees have come forward accusing the company of unrealistic deadlines and workloads, dumping cases and producing incomplete background checks to meet revenue goals.
As part of its fraud probe of USIS, which is based in Falls Church, Virginia, the DOJ filed a lawsuit in federal court earlier this year accusing the contractor of failing to adequately conduct security checks in 40% of the cases it handled for the government. USIS submitted at least 665,000 incomplete background checks to OPM, the agency that officially contracts firms to do government work, the complaint says. It further alleges that USIS dumped and flushed cases, falsely representing them as completed, to maximize the company’s revenues and profits.
Months before it filed the complaint, the DOJ announced that it had launched an investigation of USIS, which the agency revealed had been contracted by the U.S. government since 1996 to perform background investigations on individuals seeking employment with various federal agencies. In the announcement a high-ranking federal prosecutor said USIS’s shortcuts would not be tolerated and that the DOJ would take action against those who charge taxpayers for services they failed to provide, “services that could place our country’s security at risk.”
The top federal prosecutor in the Alabama district where the DOJ filed the USIS lawsuit added that “the increase in foreign and domestic terrorism places an increased responsibility on our government to ensure that unsuitable individuals are prohibited from government employment.” That means thorough, appropriate and accurate background checks are essential in the employment of government personnel, the assistant U.S. Attorney said. It appears from the written announcement that the feds get it, but their actions (letting a tainted company handle sensitive immigration files) tell a different story.”

“FBI: ‘Hostile Actors’ Likely Hacked Clinton Email Secrets
Comey recommends not prosecuting presumed Democratic nominee
BY: Bill Gertz
July 6, 2016 5:00 am
An extensive FBI investigation found evidence that foreign government hackers accessed private emails sent by former secretary of state Hillary Clinton but no direct evidence spies hacked into the several unsecure servers she used.
FBI Director James Comey revealed Tuesday the 11-month probe into Clinton’s private email servers uncovered negligent handling of very sensitive classified information that was placed on several unsecure servers between 2009 and 2013, when Clinton served as secretary of state.
In an unusual public announcement, Comey outlined findings that included discovery of highly classified information sent and received on Clinton’s private email servers, and signs that “hostile actors” gained access to email accounts of people who were sharing emails with Clinton.”
WASHINGTON, DC — Attorney General Janet Reno presented Hammer Awards to three employee working groups from Justice Department components as part of the Department’s “Justice Performance Review Lab Day,” an event showcasing the achievements of the Department’s 16 reinvention labs.
The Hammer Award is Vice President Gore’s special recognition to teams of employees which made significant contributions in support of the President’s National Performance Review (NPR) principles of improving customer service, cutting red tape, empowering employees, and getting back to basics.
“By accepting the challenge to re-invent government, these employees are making government more efficient and improving the way we perform our public responsibilities,” Reno said during theLab Day event in the Justice Department’s Great Hall. Deputy Attorney General Jamie Gorelick, who also attended, noted that the employees “have taken the concept of creating a government that works better and costs less and have made it a reality.”
The three Justice Department teams receiving the award are:
• The SENTRI Reinvention Lab, for developing a secure, high-tech, automated border inspection system at Otay Mesa, California;
• The Joint Automated Booking System (JABS) Lab, a multi-component effort which has significantly improved the prisoner booking process;
• The Justice Prisoner Alien Transportation System (JPATS), which combines the resources of several DOJ components to schedule[murder for hire] and transport prisoners more quickly, safely, and economically. Additional information on the awardees is attached. 96-523 ###”

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[Feeling lucky, Punk?]. This could include a mix of locations and varying levels of technical simulation support. The Gold Standard 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. Live Exercises These can range from testing individual components of a system or organisation through to a full-scale rehearsal. They are particularly useful where there are regulatory requirements or with high-risk situations. They are more complex and costly to organise and deliver but can be integrated with Command Post Exercises as part of a wider exercising package.”
