On 26 April 1999, Dando was fatally shot outside her home in Fulham, London. A local man, Barry George, was convicted and jailed for the murder but was later acquitted after an appeal and retrial.

“Khalid Abdulrahman al-Fawwaz (Arabic: خالد الفواز; kunya: Abu Omar al-Sebai (أبو عمر) is a Saudi who was under indictment in the United States from 1998,accused of helping to prepare the 1998 United States embassy bombings. He was extradited to the United States and arraigned in October 2012.
Al-Fawwaz appeared on the UN 1267 Committee’s list of individuals belonging to or associated with al-Qaeda, and was embargoed as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist by the US Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control.
According to the Treasury statement, al-Fawwaz was born on August 25, 1962. He moved to London in 1994. He was appointed by Osama bin Laden as the first head of the media organ called the Advice and Reform Committee in London, where he met Adel Abdel Bari and Abu Qatada, amongst others. In 1995, while bin Laden was in Sudan, al-Fawwaz was said to be attempting to pave the way for bin Laden to move to Britain.
He was arrested under the Prevention of Terrori$m Act 1989, as part of Operation Challenge, which resulted in the arrest of seven UK-resident men, who were accused of links to al-Jihad. One of the men was charged with possession of a weapon. Six months after the arrests, British Muslims staged a demonstration in front of 10 Downing Street to protest against the continued incarceration of the seven men. L’Houssaine Kherchtou, testifying for the United States, claimed that al-Fawwaz had been the leader of an “Abu Bakr Siddique camp”, which he contradictingly placed in Hayatabad, Pakistan, or Khost, Afghanistan.
His trial, along with his co-defendant Abu Anas al Libi, also known as “Nazih al Raghie” or “Anas al Sebai”, was scheduled to begin on 3 November 2014, before Judge Lewis A. Kaplan. At the same time, his co-conspirator, Abdel Bari, pleaded guilty. He was sentenced to life imprisonment on 15 May 2015.
The term Londonistan is due in large part to his activities.”
“Police: Hitman DID kill Crimewatch presenter Jill Dando
A LEFT-HANDED hitman murdered Jill Dando 15 years ago this weekend, police believe.
By DON HALE PUBLISHED: 00:01, Sun, Apr 27, 2014
The Crimewatch presenter was gunned down, aged 37, as she returned to her home in Fulham, west London.
Her death sparked one of the UK’s biggest murder hunts.
Although Barry George was convicted of her murder in July 2001, he was eventually cleared on appeal in August 2008.
Theories about the killing range from a Serbian warlord, angry that she made a TV appeal on behalf of Kosovan refugees, to British underworld enforcers furious at her Crimewatch investigations.
Dando had received death threats before her murder on April 26, 1999, and the BBC was on lock down, with armed guards patrolling Television Centre in London.
A former senior Metropolitan Police officer, who asked to remain anonymous, says that soon after the killing the Home Office issued a detailed description of a man they wished to interview, including the fact he was left-handed, and that the bullet used was “rare or unusual”.
He also said the killer’s gun was probably used again in a Liverpool gangland shooting a few years later.
The source said: “The Home Office believed it was a professional hit and asked all police forces for support and to co-operate in a massive crackdown on gun dealers, reactivated weapons and especially on custom-made ammunition.”
A detailed description of a man thought responsible for the attack suggested he was 6ft tall, dark haired, smartly dressed and of a Mediterranean appearance.
The source said the BBC was on notice of threats, claiming this was triggered by actions in Serbia.
Jill had received death threats before over Crimewatch. She rattled a few cages and upset some heavy-duty people A former senior Metropolitan Police officer He added: “Jill had received death threats before over Crimewatch. She rattled a few cages and upset some heavy-duty people.”
Dando was preparing a programme about Britain’s mobsters, the source added.
She was also investigating the death of her friend, Chelsea vice-chairman Matthew Harding, who was killed in a helicopter crash.
The source said: “Matthew had been nosing around in something he shouldn’t and Jill was trying to find out the results of a blood test on the pilot.
“The strange thing is that Matthew Harding was also a close friend of Irish journalist Veronica Guerin, who was also shot dead a few months before Matthew’s death.
“He had discussed his problem with both Veronica and Jill Dando – both were murdered and he too died in a mysterious helicopter crash.”
During the investigation to trace the gun used in the killing, one Merseyside underworld figure said: “I knew there was a contract out on her. I think it came from Scotland.””
“The Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) is a financial intelligence and enforcement agency of the U.S. Treasury Departmentcharged with planning and execution of economic and trade sanctions in support of U.S. national security and foreign policy objectives.  Under Presidential national emergency powers, OFAC carries out its activities against foreign states as well as a variety of problematic organizations and individuals, like terrorist groups, deemed to be a threat to U.S. national security.
As a component of the U.S. Treasury Department, OFAC operates under the auspices of the Office of Terrorism and Financial Intelligence and is primarily composed of intelligence targeters and lawyers. While many of OFAC’s targets are broadly set by the White House, most individual cases are developed as a result of lengthy investigations by OFAC’s Office of Global Targeting (OGT).
Often described as one of the most powerful yet unknown government agencies, OFAC has been in existence for more than a half-century and is playing an increasingly significant role as a foreign policy lever of the U.S. government. The agency is empowered to levy significant penalties against entities that defy it, including imposing colossal fines, freezing assets, and altogether barring parties from operating in the U.S. Notably, in 2014, OFAC reached a record $1 billion settlement with the French BNP Paribas, which was a portion of approximately $9 billion penalty imposed in relation to the case as a whole.”

Upon his departure he was ranked as a lieutenant (O-3).[a] .. After his military service, Bannon worked at Goldman Sachs as an investment banker in the Mergers and Acquisitions Department.When he left the company he held the position of vice president.[b] In 1990, Bannon and several colleagues from Goldman Sachs launched Bannon & Co., a boutique investment bank specializing in media. Through this company, Bannon negotiated the sale of Castle Rock Entertainment to Ted Turner. As payment, Bannon & Co. accepted a financial stake in five television shows, including Seinfeld. Société Générale [Serco shareholder – check Soros fraud!!] purchased Bannon & Co. in 1998.”

Dyke: BBC is ‘hideously white’
Mr Dyke is worried by the BBC’s make-up BBC director-general Greg Dyke has described the corporation as being “hideously white”.
Mr Dyke did not say the corporation was racist but acknowledged that, like the Metropolitan Police, it had a problem with race relations.
He admitted the organisation’s management structure was more than 98% white.
And he said it was unable to retain staff from ethnic minorities and questioned if they were made to feel welcome.”
“Trump furious at SNL sketch that portrayed Steve Bannon as the real president: report BRAD REED
14 FEB 2017 AT 15:10 ET
President Donald Trump has repeatedly expressed his displeasure with how he and his administration are portrayed on NBC’s Saturday Night Live every week — and there’s apparently a sketch he hates more than Melissa McCarthy roasting Sean Spicer. A new report claims that the president is particularly furious over a recent sketch that portrayed top political strategist Steve Bannon as the real political force in the White House.
According to the Washington Post, Trump was recently “especially upset by a sketch that cast White House chief strategist Stephen K. Bannon as the Grim Reaper manipulating the president — who was ultimately relegated to a miniature desk, playing dolefully with an expandable toy.”
Trump has been defensive about his relationship with Bannon, as he angrily insisted earlier this month that he “calls his own shots” shortly after MSNBC’s Morning Joe had a panel discussion that pondered whether Bannon was the man “calling the shots” in the Oval Office.”
“The spoliation of evidence is the intentional, reckless, or negligent withholding, hiding, altering, fabricating, or destroying of evidence 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.”
“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.

“Serco: Is it a company or a sovereign power?

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.
The company’s CEO is an India-born Pentecostal Christian [shades of Dinesh D’Souza], and is profiled here by The Guardian’s Janice Martinson in 2006.”
