February 20, 2017
Abel Danger (AD) has explained (see below) how President Trump could purge fake news from Serco’s alleged media plays in respect of the anthrax attacks on two Democratic Senators in October 2001 by extending RICO penalties for murder-for-hire to Serco’s 8(a) newsgroup pedophiles who appear to have used fake news on the Federal Bridge Certification Authority network which drove Bruce Ivins – a senior biodefense researcher at USAMRIID*, Fort Detrick, Maryland and a key suspect in the anthrax attacks – to suicide in July 2008.
USAMRIID* = United States Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases
AD claims that Serco (formerly RCA GB 1929 – a radio monopoly company) shareholders including the British government used BBC and VOA** scripts prepared by the Canadian William “Intrepid” Stephenson with American playwright Robert Sherwood to launch a ‘modern’ fake-news media-play service over British short-wave broadcasts to Europe, Africa and the Far East on February 1, 1942 – fifty-six days after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and the entry of the United States into WWII.
VOA** = Voice of America
AD claims that Serco used its 8(a) company contacts in Vietnam to arrange up to 32 propaganda tapes by John McCain in 1969 for broadcast over North Vietnam radio to US troops and, ten years later, other 8(a) companies in the Navy’s Office of Legislative Affairs in the Russell Senate Office Building to help McCain entrap senators and staff with “overseas trips with entertaining [i.e. pedophile] side escapades.”
AD claims that Serco shareholders positioned Arizona Senator John McCain as chairman of the International Republican Institute (IRI) in 1993 to oversee VOA funding by the pedophile agents in the Department of State and the injection of fake news intended to legitimize revolution by marginalized groups including youth in countries such as Haiti prior to the 2004 Haitian coup d’état and women in Egypt during the Arab Spring.
AD claims that Serco gave IP lawyer Michelle Obama custody of an online archive of child pornography in Chicago and London for use by Serco 8(a) companies in extorting government leaders through “ICE, its state and local law enforcement partners, the United States Marshals Service, Europol, and Interpol.”
AD claims that Serco ordered Kristine “Con Air” Marcy to establish a virtual floating matrix of 8(a) pedophile newsgroups on the federal bridge in 1996 by flying parolees and ICE agents to snuff-film productions at a B.C. pig farm hosted by the federally-registered ‘Piggy Palace Good Times Society’.
AD Global Operations Director Field McConnell claims that his sister Kristine Marcy and ICE staged the JonBenét Ramsey murder in December 1996 and used Serco ‘S.B.T.C’ – 8(a) Small Business Technology Companies – newsgroups to extort access to mentor devices (US 6276277 B1) for the 9/11 attacks.
AD claims that Serco authorized McCain and patent lawyer Hillary Clinton to use a patent pool of bridge technologies including weapons from mentors at Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman and Raytheon and possibly milled powder from Johnson & Johnson for the media plays associated with 9/11.
AD claims that on 9/11, Serco offered sovereign and senior levels of government fake resilience training in which media play [were] added in the form of news injects [fake news] and … experienced journalists and television crews [provided] to convince Americans they had been attacked by the Bin Laden Group.
Field McConnell is asking to meet with President Trump and Attorney General Jefferson “Jeff” Sessions III to explain how President Trump could purge fake news from media plays associated with crimes of murder for hire by a 14-word amendment/addition [see brackets] to 18 U.S. Code § 1958 – Use of interstate commerce facilities in the commission of murder-for-hire where “Whoever travels … with intent that a murder be committed [or news or evidence of such a murder be concealed, withheld, destroyed or faked] … and if death results, shall be punished by death or life imprisonment, or shall be fined not more than $250,000, or both.”
“The spoliation of evidence is the intentional, reckless, or negligent withholding, hiding, altering, fabricating, or destroying ofevidence relevant to a legal proceeding. Spoliation has two possible consequences: in jurisdictions where the (intentional) act is criminal by statute, it may result in fines and incarceration (if convicted in a separate criminal proceeding) for the parties who engaged in the spoliation; in jurisdictions where relevant case law precedent has been established, proceedings possibly altered by spoliation may be interpreted under a spoliation inference, or by other corrective measures, depending on the jurisdiction.”
“update from Anonymous (2/27/11) …
I previously had no idea that the tin concentration was 6000 ppm – I thought is probably 100ppm and interesting but not a major finding. This is because the FBI withheld the information. Even from Sandia and Livermore.
6000ppm is astonishing – and it tracks the silicon – the more silicon, the more tin Had that information been made available to Livermore 8 years ago, as it should have been – the Livermore scientists would immediately have suspected a connection between silicon and tin. The most obvious one is that a tin catalyst was used to cure the silicone (polymerized glass). Tin is commonly used for this purpose.
That the FBI deliberately withheld the silicon concentrations from Congress is beyond dispute, That’s what they did – no ifs ands or buts about it. When the FBI mislead, that simply exposes that they have something to hide.”
“FRIDAY, MAY 20, 2011 Anthrax “Conviction” Falls Apart
Silicon and Tin Added to Weaponize Anthrax McClatchy noted yesterday:
Buried in FBI laboratory reports about the anthrax mail attacks that killed five people in 2001 is data suggesting that a chemical may have been added to try to heighten the powder’s potency, a move that some experts say exceeded the expertise of the presumed killer.
The lab data, contained in more than 9,000 pages of files that emerged a year after the Justice Department closed its inquiry and condemned the late Army microbiologist Bruce Ivins as the perpetrator, shows unusual levels of silicon and tin in anthrax powder from two of the five letters. Those elements are found in compounds that could be used to weaponize the anthrax, enabling the lethal spores to float easily so they could be readily inhaled by the intended victims, scientists say.
The existence of the silicon-tin chemical signature offered investigators the possibility of tracing purchases of the more than 100 such chemical products available before the attacks, which might have produced hard evidence against Ivins or led the agency to the real culprit. But the FBI lab reports released in late February give no hint that bureau agents tried to find the buyers of additives such as tin-catalyzed silicone polymers.
The apparent failure of the FBI to pursue this avenue of investigation raises the ominous possibility that the killer is still on the loose. A McClatchy analysis of the records also shows that other key scientific questions were left unresolved and conflicting data wasn’t sorted out when the FBI declared Ivins the killer shortly after his July 29, 2008, suicide.

Ambiguous case of ‘anthrax killer’ By Kevin Connolly
BBC News, Washington Bruce Edwards Ivins was an enigmatic character who ended his life in much the same manner as he appears to have led it – a manner which was troubling, ambiguous and dark.
It is also impossible to construct a convincing and rounded picture of Ivins’ personality from the conflicting impressions offered by FBI investigators on the one hand, who believe he was a deeply disturbed mass murderer, and on the other by friends and colleagues who portray a gentler, more reflective figure.
There are shades of light and dark within most of us, but rarely are they as extreme as the different facets of Ivins’ character. Here was a man who played the organ in his local church, founded a juggling group to entertain children and wrote amusing jingles to play at leaving parties when colleagues moved on to new jobs.
He was also tormented by paranoid, delusional thoughts, drank heavily and wrote a poem containing the lines: “I’m the other half of Bruce – when he lets me out… I push Bruce aside, then I’m free to run about!”
This all matters because the American authorities have taken the extraordinary step of publishing the evidence they had collected against Bruce Ivins.
They are trying to prove that he was solely responsible for the anthrax attacks in late 2001, which terrified an America already traumatised by the 9/11 bombings.”

“The 2001 anthrax attacks, also known as Amerithrax from its Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) case name, occurred within the United States over the course of several weeks beginning on September 18, 2001, one week after the September 11 attacks.Letters containing anthrax spores were mailed to several news media offices and two Democratic U.S. Senators, killing five people and infecting 17 others. According to the FBI, the ensuing investigation became “one of the largest and most complex in the history of law enforcement.” …
The attacks followed a week after the September 11 attacks which had caused the destruction of the World Trade Center in New York City, damage to The Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia and the crash of an airliner in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. The anthrax attacks came in two waves. The first set of anthrax letters had a Trenton, New Jersey postmark dated September 18, 2001. Five letters are believed to have been mailed at this time to: ABC News, CBS News, NBC News and the New York Post, all located in New York City and to the National Enquirer at American Media, Inc. (AMI) in Boca Raton, Florida. Robert Stevens, the first person who died from the mailings, worked at the Sun tabloid, also published by AMI, died on October 5, 2001, four days after entering a Florida hospital with an undiagnosed illness that caused him to vomit and be short of breath. Only the New York Post and NBC News letters were found; the existence of the other three letters is inferred because individuals at ABC, CBS and AMI became infected with anthrax. Scientists examining the anthrax from the New York Post letter said it appeared as a coarse brown granular material looking like Purina Dog Chow.
Two more anthrax letters, bearing the same Trenton postmark, were dated October 9, three weeks after the first mailing. The letters were addressed to two Democratic Senators, Tom Daschle of South Dakota and Patrick Leahy of Vermont. At the time, Daschle was the Senate Majority leader and Leahy was head of the Senate Judiciary Committee. The Daschle letter was opened by an aide, Grant Leslie, on October 15, and the government mail service was shut down. The unopened Leahy letter was discovered in an impounded mailbag on November 16. The Leahy letter had been misdirected to the State Department mail annex in Sterling, Virginia, because a ZIP code was misread; a postal worker there, David Hose, contracted inhalational anthrax.
More potent than the first anthrax letters, the material in the Senate letters was a highly refined dry powder consisting of about one gram of nearly pure spores. A series of conflicting news reports appeared, some claiming the powders had been “weaponized” with silica. Bioweapons experts who later viewed images of the attack anthrax saw no indication of “weaponization”. Tests by Sandia National Laboratories in early 2002 confirmed that the attack powders were not weaponized.
At least 22 people developed anthrax infections; 11 of which contracted the especially life-threatening inhalational variety. Five died of inhalational anthrax: Stevens; two employees of the Brentwood mail facility in Washington, D.C., Thomas Morris Jr. and Joseph Curseen; and two whose source of exposure to the bacteria is still unknown, Kathy Nguyen, a Vietnamese immigrant resident in the borough of the Bronx who worked in New York City, and the last known victim Ottilie Lundgren, a 94-year-old widow of a prominent judge from Oxford, Connecticut.
Because it took so long to identify a culprit, the 2001 anthrax attacks have been compared to the Unabomber attacks which took place from 1978 to 1995.”

Britain’s ‘Anthrax Island’
Anthrax is one of the best known agents of biological warfare – and possibly one of the most feared.
The bacterium occurs naturally, in low levels, in some animals, but when it is inhaled by humans in the form of spores it is deadly.
The killing power of anthrax was demonstrated by British scientists during the Second World War when it was released on a tiny Scottish island to wipe out a flock of sheep.
The island, Gruinard, just off the mainland, in Gruinard Bay, half way between Ullapool and Gairloch in the Highlands, was so contaminated that it was deemed out-of-bounds for almost 50 years.
The 1942 test was sanctioned amid fears the Germans might attack the UK with biological or chemical weapons. Anthrax can be contracted by skin contact, ingestion or inhalation, but it is through inhalation that it is at its most deadly and proves to be fatal in about 95% of cases, even with medical treatment.
Experts on biological weapons have suggested that 100kg of anthrax sprayed on a major city could kill more than 3m people. When anthrax spores are inhaled death usually takes around seven days and will be as a result of symptoms like internal bleeding, blood poisoning or even meningitis.
Initial symptoms after inhalation might include mild fever, malaise, fatigue, coughing and, occasionally a feeling of pressure on the chest.
It was previously not uncommon for animal workers to become infected with anthrax through skin contact – it was called woolsorter’s disease at one point – when a boil would appear which would eventually form a black centre.
When scientists experimented with anthrax on Gruinard Island a film was made of their work and it remained classified until 1997.
Sheep were taken to an open field, secured in wooden frames, and exposed to a bomb that scattered the spores. The sheep started dying three days later.
Despite attempts to disinfect Gruinard Island, the spores left by the experiments kept the island in quarantine for 48 years. The final WW II report on the Gruinard Island tests suggested anthrax could be used to render cities uninhabitable “for generations”. In 1986 an English company was paid half a million pounds to decontaminate the 520-acre island by soaking the ground in 280 tonnes of formaldehyde diluted in 2000 tonnes of seawater.
Topsoil was also removed in sealed containers.
To prove that the clean-up was successful a flock of sheep was allowed to graze the island at the behest of an independent watchdog set up by the Ministry of Defence.
On 24 April, 1990, the then junior Defence Minister, Michael Neubert, made the half-mile journey from the mainland to declare Gruinard safe by removing its red warning sign.
But at that time the Glasgow Herald newspaper reported that a leading archaeologist was unconvinced by official assurances the land was safe.
Dr Brian Moffat, archaeological director of an excavation of a medieval hospital near Edinburgh, said his team had encountered buried anthrax spores which had survived for hundreds of years.
He told the paper: “I would not go walking on Gruinard. If anthrax is still active at Soutra, there is no reason to suppose it has not survived on more recent sites. It is a very resilient and deadly bacterium.”
However, that was not the end of Britain’s interest in anthrax because earlier this month it was announced that a team led by a Scottish scientist had produced a vaccine.
It was manufactured after two years work at Porton Down, the government’s chemical and biological warfare research centre.
Sir William Stewart, who led the research group, said the vaccine should act as a safeguard for the future.”
“Serco Combined Resilience Exercising
Types of Exercise Workshop Exercises These are structured discussion events where participants can explore issues in a less pressurized environment.
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. This could include a mix of locations and varying levels of technical simulation support. The GoldStandard 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.
Simulation and Media Support The method of delivering an exercise is flexible and will be designed with the client to meet their requirements with options ranging from simple paper-based delivery through to full use of their real communications systems [Red Switch Network and Hawkeye onion router surveillance aircraft] and advance computer simulation [In Trump’s death pool and war room suites]. In addition, media play can also be added in the form of news injects and the provision of experienced journalists and television crews to help test procedures and also assist in training key staff.

“Pedophiles in Politics: An Open Source Investigation
The reader and citizen investigator can also review high-profile cases of pedophilia in this January 2015 report found at The Corbett Report. We have summarized the report here:
The first case involves the exposure of five VIP pedophile rings all of which included at least one current or former British Member of Parliament, with a total of twenty-four politicians. Six of those twenty-four are currently serving members of the UK government, including three MPs and three members of the House of Lords. The police are already investigating claims made by an alleged victim of the network that a Conservative MP strangled a boy to death during one of the ring’s sex parties, and that he personally witnessed two other boys murdered by the gang, including one who was run over in broad daylight. It is also believed that two men may have been murdered as part of a cover-up of the network’s activities.
In the U.S. a similarly shocking set of allegations are emerging from a Florida court case surrounding Jeffrey Epstein, the prominent American financier and billionaire who was convicted in 2008 of soliciting an underage girl for prostitution. In the years since his conviction, dozens of women have come forward to accuse him of abuse, and he has made seventeen out-of-court settlements in various civil cases arising from these accusations.”

SERCO: ‘The biggest company you’ve never heard of’
JULY 7, 2013 BY 21WIRE
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…

SERCO – The Biggest Company You’ve Never Heard Of From Australian television [2:49] If one single company had to be chosen as the exemplar of the military/industrial complex, esnl’s pick would be Serco, a British company created in 1929 as a local branch of Radio Corporation of America.
Today the firm runs air traffic control towers in the U.S., immigration detention centers in Australia, schools and the anti-missile defense system in Britain, and much, much more.
Of special interest to us is the company’s growing role in the espionage world and intelligence world, especially here in the U.S., where it is based in Reston, Virginia, the nation’s capital of corporate spookery.
According to Crocodyl, the company holds contracts with an alphabet soup of three- and four-letter agencies, including the National Security Agency [NSA], National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency [NGA], the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), Office of Naval Intelligence, the Air Force Information Warfare Center, and the Department of Defense.
Here’s an example of the folks who work for Serco, from a new hire announcement posted by the company two years ago: Serco Inc., a provider of professional, technology, and management services to the federal government, announced today that Maureen Baginski has been named Vice President of the intelligence business and National Security Advisor at Serco. … From 2003 to 2005, Ms. Baginski served as the FBI’s Executive Assistant Director for Intelligence where she was responsible for establishing and managing the FBI’s first-ever intelligence program. Her mission was to adapt FBI intelligence capabilities with information technologies to create an intelligence-sharing operation that could identify threats before they became attacks.
From 1979 to 2003, Ms. Baginski served at the National Security Agency (NSA), where she held a variety of positions, including Signals Intelligence (SIGINT) Director, Senior Operations Officer in the National Security Operations Center; Executive Assistant to the Director of NSA/Central Security Service, Chief Officer of the Director; Assistant Deputy Director of Technology and Systems; and lead analyst for the Soviet Union. As SIGINT Director, Ms. Baginski successfully established and directed a unified program to exploit encrypted or denied information on global networks. Leading the NSA’s Signals Intelligence Directorate, the Nation’s high technology cryptology organization, she managed a complex and geographically dispersed distributed information production enterprise.
