Abel Danger (AD) has explained how President-elect Donald Trump’s Marine Corps Intelligence Activity can track Serco’s alleged use of 8(a) stand-down networks during the 9/11 attacks to the Clinton Foundation agents who integrated elite-hotel security systems to the Federal Bridge Certification Authority and allegedly sold online details of Lockheed Martin’s missile-guidance technology for miniaturized nuclear warheads to China.
AD claims that Serco’s (formerly RCA GB 1929) hotel-based 8(a) stand-down networks were launched in 1978/9 in a conspiracy between Nicholas Soames, the grandson of Sir Winston Churchill and former UK Minister of State for the Armed Forces (1994 to 1997), and Kristine Marcy, sister of Field McConnell, founder member of the Senior Executive Service and former custodian of the DOJ Asset forfeiture Fund (Note $1.9 billion fine of HSBC – Serco’s dirty banker!).
United States Marine Field McConnell – the Global Operations Director of Abel Danger – is asking for a meeting with President-elect Trump to explain how he can eradicate the threat of hotel-based nuclear blackmail through Serco’s 8(a) stand-down networks with the ‘expansion of peacetime components of the Marine Corps [Intelligence Activity] to meet the needs of war [on terror].’

FBI Finds Stolen Nuke Info May Have Come from Weapons Maker
By Vernon Loeb and Walter Pincus
THE WASHINGTON POST — WASHINGTON
The FBI has found new evidence suggesting that China may have stolen information about the most advanced U.S. nuclear warhead from one of the weapon’s assemblers, widening an investigation once focused almost exclusively on Los Alamos National Laboratory and one of its staff scientists, Wen Ho Lee.
The evidence emerged after weapons scientists at Los Alamos noted errors in a Chinese intelligence document that sparked the initial FBI and congressional investigations into Los Alamos and Lee. The telltale errors, contained in a description of the miniaturized W-88 warhead, were traced to one of the contractors and defense installations that assemble nuclear weapons, government sources said.
While the new evidence does not completely eliminate Los Alamos or Lee, the sources said, it indicates that the most likely origin of the information is one of the weapons “integrators.” These include Sandia National Laboratories, which puts together prototypes of some warheads;Lockheed Martin Corp., which attach warheads to missiles; and the Navy, which supervises the process.
One source said the analysis “widened the circle and gave convincing evidence” backing up the contention, long voiced by scientists at Los Alamos and officials at the Department of Energy, that China could have obtained classified information about the W-88 and other U.S. nuclear warheads from any of dozens of facilities.
A Lockheed Martin spokesman said Thursday the company “is cooperating with the government in its investigation and is not under investigation nor implicated in any wrongdoing.”
Attorney General Janet Reno and FBI Director Louis Freeh told Congress in September that they were starting their investigation into Chinese espionage over again and assigning scores of additional agents to broaden the probe.”
“Support Services for Starwood Hotels Group Starwood Hotels Group, owner of some of the world’s most prestigious hotels, has appointedSerco as preferred bidder for a £7m contract to provide a range of support services to the Sheraton Grand in Edinburgh, the Westin in Dublin and the 5 star [Trump] Turnberry resort on Scotland’s west coast. The contract, which has a 5 year term, is an extension to services already provided to other hotels in the Starwood Group and includes buildings maintenance and security, engineering support and help desk services.”
“AWE review concluded successfully and updated contract agreed Serco Group plc (‘Serco’ or ‘the Group’), the international service company, is pleased to announce that an updated contract to manage the operations of the Atomic Weapons Establishment (‘AWE’) has been agreed by AWE Management Limited (‘AWE ML’) and the Ministry of Defence (‘MoD’). As previously disclosed, the UK Government has been reviewing these arrangements, and this process has now concluded successfully.
The updated contract, which sets out a framework for operations through to 2025, will provide the MoD with greater flexibility to vary activity with changes in funding and other programme demands, and provides for greater incentivisation in the form of demanding risk / reward mechanisms. There will be regular pricing reviews, with the next one scheduled to take place in 2019.
AWE ML is a joint venture between Serco, Lockheed Martin Inc. and Jacobs Engineering Group Inc., and is contracted to manage on the UK Government’s behalf the development, maintenance and manufacturing of warheads for the UK’s strategic nuclear deterrent, as well as performing other roles central to national nuclear security. As part of the arrangements, the joint venture partners have agreed in principle that Lockheed Martin will take a majority holding in the joint venture, reflecting the anticipated relative level of resources and workload involved in future operations; the shareholdings of both Jacobs and Serco will be adjusted to allow for this, reducing in both cases from 33.3% to 24.5%.”
“Sir Arthur Nicholas Winston Soames, PC (born 12 February 1948), sometimes known as Nick Soames, is a British Conservative Party politician and member of parliament for the constituency of Mid Sussex. He is a grandson of Sir Winston Churchill. Soames was first elected to Parliament in 1983. He was Minister of State for the Armed Forces from 1994 to 1997 in the government of John Major. His main political interests are defence, international relations, rural affairs and industry. He is also chairman of the private security contractor Aegis Defence Services. …
In 1970 he was appointed Equerry to HRH The Prince of Wales, he has remained a close friend of the Prince ever since and publicly criticisedDiana, Princess of Wales, during the couple’s estrangement. When Diana first accused the Prince of Wales of adultery with Camilla Parker Bowles, Soames told the BBC that the accusation, and Diana’s fear of being slandered by her husband’s courtiers, stemmed merely from Diana’s mental illness, and “the advanced stages of paranoia”. Charles later admitted his adultery and Soames apologised. When questioned by the inquest into the death of Diana, Soames said that he saw his job as “to speak up for the Prince of Wales”. He denied threatening Diana, and warning her, “accidents happen” in the months before she died.
In 1972 he left Kensington Palace and the army to work as a stockbroker. In 1974, he became a personal assistant; first to Sir James Goldsmithand then in 1976 to United States Senator Mark Hatfield, whose employ he left in 1978 to become a director of Bland Welch, Lloyd’sBrokers. Between 1979–81, he was an assistant director of the Sedgwick Group.”

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.
By the time SBA celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2003, agency officials want all their programs up and running around the clock, chief financial officer Joseph Loddo said.
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 said.
SBA processed its first electronic loan last November through its Sacramento, Calif., office and plans to add more private lenders during fiscal 2001.
The agency’s staffing level has dropped 22 percent over the past eight years, which is another reason to improve IT, Marcy said. Over the past decade, SBA’s portfolio of loans to small and disadvantaged businesses has more than doubled to $50 billion.
‘We’re a small agency with a huge portfolio,’ Marcy said. SBA supplies more than half of the U.S. venture capital available each year.
Seventy percent to 80 percent of the loans are booked through a preferred lender program [structured by Serco], which involves nearly 7,000 banks, Marcy said. SBA guarantees the loans, just as the government backs student and housing loans.
‘The financial and IT businesses were changing so rapidly, we had to make some changes to stay current with the private sector,’ Marcy said. Banks had been asking SBA to make faster decisions on loan guarantees. The agency decided to aim for a turnaround time of one hour.”

“Serco Awarded $13 Million Marine Training Systems Support Contract
Date: 28 Feb 2014
Serco Inc., a provider of professional, technology, and management services, announced the award of a new contract to provide training support to the US Marine Corps (USMC). The Marine Air Ground Task Force (MAGTF) Training Systems Support contract has a one-year base period and one six-month option period valued at nearly $18 million, if the option is exercised.
Under this contract, Serco will support Combat Instructor School training, systems integrations and operations in a classroom and operations center environment in support of MAGTF Staff Training Program Division-sponsored and supported events. Serco will deliver collaborative tools and web development for garrison and tactical event environments. Training support will include warfighting skills and seminars, mission rehearsal exercises, C2 systems, and combat simulation. Serco expects to hire over 100 new employees to support this contract at 6 sites around the world.
“The Marines mission is critical to our national security and we are proud to support them on this effort,” said Dan Allen, Serco Inc.’s Chairman and Chief Executive officer. “Serco is known around the world for the quality of our training programs. We look forward to putting our experience to work for the Marines and to support their vital training requirements.”
Personnel and Readiness is a key capability within Serco’s market offering. The company provides training and simulation to over 1,000 students a month at the US Army Maneuver Center of Excellence in Fort Benning, GA. At Fort Benning, Serco conducts and supports integrated and immersive tactical training exercises up to Brigade level using Live, Virtual, and Constructive Gaming (LVC-G) systems. Serco utilizes integrated exercise systems like Command Post of the Future (CPoF), Future Battle Command Brigade and Below (FBCB2), Army Battle Command Systems (ABCS) and Virtual Battlespace II (VBS2).”
“The September 11 Travel Operation The success of the September 11 plot depended on the ability of the hijackers to obtain visas [throughSerco’s National Visa Center set up by Field McConnell’s sister Kristine ‘Con Air’ Marcy, the former Senior Counsel for the Detention and Deportation Program for the INS] and pass an immigration and customs inspection in order to enter the United States. It also depended on their ability to remain here undetected while they worked out the operational details of the attack. If they had failed on either count—entering and becoming embedded—the plot could not have been executed. Here we present the facts and circumstances of the hijackers’ travel operation, including their 25 contacts with consular officers and their 43 contacts with immigration and customs authorities. We also discuss the 12 contacts with border authorities by other September 11 conspirators who applied for a visa. The narrative is chronological, retracing the hijackers’ steps from their initial applications for U.S. visas, through their entry into the United States, to their applications for immigration benefits, and up through their acquisition of state identifications that helped them board the planes. Along the way, we note relevant actions by U.S. government authorities to combat terrorism. There were a few lucky breaks for U.S. border authorities in this story. Mostly, though, it is a story of how 19 hijackers easily penetrated U.S. border security.”
“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”

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.”
“SERCO: ‘The biggest company you’ve never heard of’
JULY 7, 2013
21st Century Wire says…
As politicians asset-strip the public’s portfolio of properties, infrastructure and services, one multinational corporation has grown as a result – and its scope and reach may shock many people who have not been paying attention.
All around the globe, our governments are busy outsourcing public-sector services like health, education, police, prisons, money delivery and military – to the esteemed private sector. It’s sold to the public as a solution to avoiding higher taxes, while retaining better services. But it’s simply an accountancy shell game, where the government kicks the can down the road by spreading the bill to the taxpayer over a longer period of time, in order to avoid any large upfront payments – all the while, allowing a private corporation to extend its influence over society. This, by definition, is fascism. They are called SERCO, and they run countries…
