To Whom It May Concern:

Field McConnell – United States Marine and Global Operations Director of Abel Danger (AD) – has linked death-pool betting by Serco shareholders including HSBC and the government of Saudi Arabia with Hillary Clinton’s alleged use of Serco Demon face-recognition software  to blackmail the pedophiles who set up the federal bridge network on the 47th floor of WTC1 (North Tower) on 9/11 and Frank Giustra’s alleged use of Serco bankers to archive snuff-film images from a B.C. pig farm (1996-2002) or various Boeing aircraft crash sites between 1988 and  2017.

McConnell looks forward to an invitation to brief President Trump in the presence of retired Marine Corps two-star Randolph “Tex” Alles, director of the United States Secret Service, on how he can take down Serco (at the time of the 9/11 attaacks, the British operator of the alleged NPL death-pool clock and the world’s largest air traffic controller!) with a RICO action and purge death-pool bettors and demon blackmailers from the federal bridge.

One of the few non-whites to make it to the University of Natal, Hyman went on to join accountant Arthur Andersen, before moving to London in 1989 to be with Ernst& Young. After South Africa, he says, the UK was a breath of fresh air and he claims never to have found his race to be an issue. ‘My parents brought us up in a certain way. They told us that God created everyone. You do the best you can and you will be spotted.’

In 1994, he was head-hunted by Serco to be its European finance director, although, as he puts it: ‘I found Serco – the company fitted everything I was looking for.’ When he joined, annual turnover was £238m. In 2006, it was £2.5bn.

On 11 September 2001, he was in the World Trade Center. He was on the 47th floor when the plane hit, talking to [a death pool of] Serco shareholders. They got out – but not the people in his previous meeting. He does not like talking about that terrible day. ‘It confirmed my faith.

“Tracey McVicar on her journey from Wall Street wizard to inner-city teacher to one of B.C.’s most influential board directors

… While she found investment banking rewarding and enjoyed how the high-performing environment attracted smart people, often with a good sense of humour, McVicar laments the singular focus on making money. The business, says the UBC commerce grad, is “bereft of helping others by its nature. To be really good, you have to be consumed by it and really live it.” She describes an environment where people were hiring Bryan Adams for their weddings, and everybody one-upped each other on their latest luxury vehicle. “I wondered to myself, ‘Just who are you?’ I felt I was going in a direction that wouldn’t be very fulfilling later.”

Turns out “fulfillment” is a recurring theme over our brunch of poached eggs and bacon at Mosaic restaurant in Vancouver’s Hyatt hotel. McVicar—who worked at RBC Capital Markets from 1990 to 1997 and Raymond James Ltd. (and its predecessor, Goepel Shields & Partners) from 1997 to 2001—set up NYC-headquartered CAI in Vancouver after returning to B.C. following 9/11. “Of course that changed everything,” says McVicar, who was in Brooklyn at the time of the attacks although had been due to pick up some computers, donated to her school, at the World Trade Center that morning. “My idealistic dream of teaching in the inner city, earning $28,000 a year, living in New York, was just that—a dream. I realized that both me and the school would be much better off if I went back to finance, back to Canada and donated that amount every year instead.”

However, teaching undoubtedly spurred McVicar to engage more with the community and join boards as if they were a full-time job. From not-for-profits such as Big Sisters of BC Lower Mainland and Science World to mega corporations such as BC Hydro and Teck Resources, the 47-year-old Quilchena resident has become one of the province’s most coveted board directors. McVicar also runs an annual Golf for Good charity tournament—in its ninth year—which has brought in more than $1 million. (“You have to be careful because at a certain point people won’t take your call anymore,” she says, with a slight laugh. “Then you’ve got the quid pro quo that if I tap you, then you’re going to tap me or my firm. And I get that—it’s how it all works.”)”

“HSBC apologizes for money laundering control lapse
The Associated Press Posted: Jul 30, 2012 2:00 PM ET Last Updated: Jul 30, 2012 8:31 PM ET
HSBC apologized to shareholders Monday as it disclosed it has set aside $700 million US to cover the cost of American penalties for lapses including its failure to enforce money-laundering controls in Mexico.
The provision was announced as Europe’s biggest bank reported an 11 per cent rise in pretax profit in the first half of the year following $4.3 billion in gains from asset sales. For the six months ending June 30, the bank made a pretax profit of $12.7 billion, up from $11.5 billion a year earlier.
However, net profit was down 8.4 per cent at $8.4 billion from $9.2 billion the previous year, after accounting for a bigger tax bill. Most attention focused on the provision HSBC has taken for its legal problems.As well as costs relating to infractions in Mexico, the $700 million provision also takes in possible penalties for violations of the U.S. Bank Secrecy Act in a case going back two years, and any penalties from continuing investigations of possible violations of economic sanctions against Iran and other countries.

Earlier this month, HSBC paid a fine of $28 million — 379 million Mexican pesos — to Mexican authorities for non-compliance with money laundering controls. A U.S. Senate investigative committee also reported that in 2007 and 2008 HSBC Mexico sent to the United States about $7 billion in cash.
“Bulk cash shipments could reach that volume only if they included illegal drug proceeds,” the committee concluded.
HSBC Mexico acknowledged that it failed to report 39 suspicious transactions and had been late in reporting 1,729 others.
The bank’s chairman, Douglas Flint, and Chief Executive Stuart Gulliver apologized Monday for the money-laundering infractions.
Banks in ‘hostile climate’
“We must demonstrate that we have learned from earlier mistakes,” Flint said.
“The banking industry is operating in a hostile climate so we must double our efforts to convince our regulators, customers and investors that we are striving for the highest possible standards. Only that way can we allay public fears and regain trust in our industry,” Flint said.
Gulliver said new processes and standards were being enforced in all of the bank’s global operations.
“HSBC is now run and managed as a genuinely global firm, making it easier to set, monitor and enforce standards,” he said.
As well as being dented by the money-laundering provisions, HSBC’s first-half earnings were also hit by provisions of $1.3 billion for compensating U.K. customers for payment protection insurance.
However, the bank made no provision for settling potential regulatory fines and private lawsuits, including one pending in the United States, related to setting the London interbank offered rate (LIBOR) and other indexes.
In its program of getting out of non-strategic markets and non-core investments, HSBC has made 36 disposals and closures since early 2011.
A further look at the figures showed that operating income was up three per cent to $43.7 billion while taxes paid more than doubled from $1.7 billion to $3.6 billion.
Jonathan Jackson, an analyst at Killik & Co., said HSBC has a “strong funding position, with excess cheap deposits, and is well capitalized.””
“Clinton foundation received up to $81m from clients of controversial HSBC bank
The charitable foundation run by Hillary Clinton and her family has received as much as $81m from wealthy international donors who were clients of HSBC’s controversial Swiss bank.
Leaked files from HSBC’s Swiss banking division reveal the identities of seven donors to the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation with accounts in Geneva.
They include Frank Giustra, a Canadian mining magnate and one of the foundation’s biggest financial backers, and Richard Caring, the British retail magnate who, the bank’s internal records show, used his tax-free Geneva account to transfer $1m into the New York-based foundation.
Hillary Clinton has expressed concern over growing economic inequality in the US and is expected to make the issue a cornerstone of her widely anticipated presidential campaign in 2016. However, political observers are increasingly asking whether the former secretary of state’s focus on wealth inequality sits uncomfortably with the close relationships she and her husband have nurtured with some of the world’s richest individuals.
Giustra’s Swiss HSBC account, created in 2002, contained up to $10m in the 2006-2007 period.
Lawyers for the mining magnate said that he held the account for investment purposes, and that it was in compliance with Canadian laws that required disclosure of foreign assets.
Caring was legitimately permitted to keep his assets offshore by a hereditary quirk of UK tax law, under which he is registered as “non-domiciled”, courtesy of his Italian-American father. The HSBC records suggest Caring’s $1m donation was paid in return for former president Bill Clinton’s attendance at a lavish costume charity ball organised by Caring in St Petersburg, Russia.
Another Clinton foundation donor who had a HSBC account in the tax haven is Jeffrey Epstein, the hedge fund manager and convicted sex offender who once flew the former president on his private jet for charity events in Africa.
The identities of Clinton supporters who banked with HSBC in Geneva are contained in internal bank data leaked by a HSBC computer expert turned whistleblower, Hervé Falciani.”“Tracy Redies [Allegedly developed HSBC.com services to launder money for Serco shareholders and clients in 80 countries]

“Saturday, 20 October 2012 Andrea Davison, Jimmy Savile, SERCO and How it all Fits In With Child Abuse, Covert Arms Shipments and Government Fraud

Andrea and journalist Pete Sawyer continued the exposure through Scallywag magazine who’s co founder, and editor of its successor Spiked, Angus James Wilson, died mysteriously in Cyprus around 1996. Scallywag also exposed that MI5 took foreign diplomats and important people to the North Wales homes and secretly filmed them abusing and torturing boys to use the tapes for blackmail. This is a classic Intelligence modus operandi with regard to child abuse by the famous and influential – especially politicians that they want to control. The cover-up of child abuse over decades indicated the hand of the State Agencies. This all linked covert arms deals and child abuse.

In Interviews victims had named a number of police officers including Fraud Squad officer DC Stephen Winnard who later arrested Andrea in 2010, senior judges, celebrities, and Politicians including, Derek Laud, McAlpine and Peter Morrison and also the Duke of Westminster. Victims claimed they were collected from the Children’s Homes in expensive cars, including Jimmy Savile’s Rolls Royce and taken to be abused by an elite paedophile ring. These interviews and other evidence were kept by Andrea.

Late 2009 she felt able to began a new investigation and was instructed to look into SERCO http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serco_Group and who really owned Britain Nuclear deterrent. Silent Players were making fortunes from the grant of lucrative contracts involving billions of tax payer’s money and other secret money which appeared to be gathered from Government sponsored International fraud. SERCO was winning contracts in every area of British life from emptying the bins in Milton Keynes to running Prisons and providing probation services. Its power was staggering and it was slowly and incrementally taking over the Criminal Justice System.

Evidence indicated people in SERCO were covertly selling nuclear technology to anyone who would pay and in 2009 a massive on-going fraud network began to surface possibly linking the City of London Police and SERCO with frauds around the Globe. But just as this evidence was being compiled in January 2010 the Derby Fraud Squad working with the City of London Police Raided her small flat and removed all the evidence. At the same time they stole thousands of documents on arms to Iraq, the Jillings report and interviews with the victims of sexual abuse naming Police Officers and High profile abusers.”

“28 November 2001
Global swoop on newsgroup paedophiles
By Will Knight

More than 130 people in 19 different countries have been arrested or are under investigation after police traced the distribution of child pornography through different internet newsgroups.

Technical experts at UK internet service provider Demon Internet aided officers from the National Crime Squad’s new Hi-Tech Crime Unit with the investigation.

A spokesperson from Thus, Demon’s parent company, says that investigators were not given access to the server logs that record Demon users’ activities.

Investigators were simply provided with access to newsgroup postings in the same way as any other Demon customer. Technical experts from Demon then helped officers distinguish the identifying information contained within the message “headers” of particular postings.

Face recognition

Officers traced postings relating to certain images to different internet service providers around the world and then contacted Interpol to track down suspects.

Investigators say they discovered 10,000 suspect postings to over 30 different newsgroups and identified 60,000 new images. They plan to use face recognition software to identify victims in different images, to help trace them. This software has been developed in conjunction with UK company Serco, although no technical details have been released.

“This operation has sadly and distressingly brought thousands of new images of abuse to our attention,” said Detective Superintendent Peter Spindler of the National Crime Squad. “These young victims need to be identified and protected as quickly as possible.”

Spindler added: “We are able to show that those accessing these newsgroups did so regularly and with purpose.”

Nine regional police forces in the UK were involved in the operation. Warrants for searches or arrests were issued in 19 countries, including Australia, Canada, Germany, Israel, Japan, Russia, Sweden, Turkey, and the US.

Evading detection

According to a report by the BBC, another 400 suspects could not be traced by investigators. Police have not said how they evaded detection but it is possible to post messages to news groups anonymously using intermediary servers that strip away header information.

The UK government introduced legislation in 2000, giving the police greater access to internet communications. Further provisions for the extended storage of data is included in new anti-terrorist legislation currently passing through parliament.

Privacy advocates claim that these laws could be misused and some question the justification for the legislation. Peter Sommer, at the London School of Economics computer science department, says that the techniques involved in the latest paedophile investigation did not require a special police warrant.

“It is apparent that the existing legislation was sufficient to help the NCS gather evidence and secure the ISP co-operation needed,” Sommer told New Scientist.”

“Serious Fraud Office launches inquiry into G4S and Serco overcharging claims
Investigation follows justice secretary’s claims that firms overcharged on electronic tagging contracts for offenders

Under the contracts more than 20,000 offenders are monitored on electronic tags at any one time. Alan Travis, home affairs editor
Monday 4 November 2013 12.34 GMTFirst published on Monday 4 November 2013 12.34 GMT

The Serious Fraud Office has launched a formal criminal investigation into two of the government’s biggest suppliers, G4S and Serco, following claims by the justice secretary, Chris Grayling, of tens of millions of pounds of overcharging on electronic tagging contracts for offenders.Grayling asked the SFO to look into the billing allegations in July when he told MPs that an external audit had revealed that the overcharging included billing for tracking the movements of criminals who had moved abroad, who were back in prison, who had had their tags removed and even, in a few cases, those who had died.

The justice secretary said that in some cases the bills had continued to be presented years after active monitoring had stopped.

Whitehall sources have confirmed that the central allegation in the case revolves around charges for 3,000 phantom offenders. The justice ministry was being billed by the two companies for the tagging of 18,000 offenders a day under the £700m contract when only 15,000 were actually being monitored.
G4S said it would co-operate with the investigation and had been notified by the SFO director, David Green, that it would cover “the contract for the provision of electronic monitoring services which commenced in 2005 as amended and extended until the present day”.

In July Grayling asked the SFO to look into the situation after G4S refused to co-operate with a justice ministry internal forensic audit to establish whether any dishonesty had taken place. The decision to refer Serco, which did co-operate with the MoJ audit, to the SFO was taken in September.

In July Serco said senior management had not been aware of the discrepancies but they did not believe anything dishonest had taken place. The company agreed with the MoJ that if the forensic audit showed dishonesty had taken place they would jointly call in the SFO.

The pattern of overcharging was revealed by a PricewaterhouseCoopers external audit commissioned by Grayling in May after billing discrepancies were discovered during the re-tendering process.

Under the contracts, more than 20,000 offenders are monitored on electronic tags at any one time. They are a key element in the criminal justice system’s menu of community punishments as they are used to enforce curfews for prisoners on early release as well as some court orders.

In a small number of cases they have been used to track the movements of terror suspects and paedophiles. Last week prosecutions were halted against three terror suspects accused of tampering with their G4S-supplied GPS tags amid claims of faults with the tags and their straps.

The two companies are among the government’s biggest suppliers. Both have already agreed to withdraw from bidding for the £3bn next-generation tagging contract.

The Cabinet Office has also been reviewing the 28 contracts that the two companies currently hold with the government worth a total of £9bn, including the management of the atomic weapons establishment at Aldermaston. Grayling has said that both companies can bid for contracts to run 70% of the probation service but will not be awarded them unless the SFO give them a clean bill of health.

Sadiq Khan, the shadow justice secretary, said the SFO decision was a major development. “In July I wrote to the SFO calling on them to investigate claims against G4S and to act swiftly to secure any possible evidence that might be needed. I hope that the time taken to launch this investigation hasn’t resulted in the loss of important evidence,” he said.

“With future Ministry of Justice contracts up for grabs, including more than £600m of probation contracts, the government must act swiftly and bar G4S from bidding for any more until the SFO has concluded its investigation. By failing to do so, David Cameron risks undermining public confidence in our justice system.””

“Statement of Jim Flyzik Acting Assistant Secretary for Management and Chief Information Officer (CIO) before the House Government Reform Committee 6/21/2001 …. Treasury also hosted the Federal Bridge Certification Authority (FBCA) project for the Federal government, currently operated by GSA. The FBCA is a mechanism for the secure exchange of information between government agencies. The bridge allows agency public key infrastructures (PKIs) to interoperate as it permits digital credentials (called “digital certificates”) issued by each agency to its employees to be accepted with trust and confidence by other agencies for electronic transactions. This functionality directly supports E-Government, as agencies will be able to perform Internet-enabled transactions, such as credit card collections through banks, or secure emails between agencies, with previously unattainable trust and confidence. A prototype version of the FBCA became operational in February 2000 and was successfully used in a large-scale test in April 2000. During that time, the PKIs of five different organizations within the U.S., the Canadian Government and academia, were cross-certified through the prototype FBCA. The agencies were able to interoperate, successfully exchanging digitally signed electronic mail messages. FBCA is operated by GSA and, once cross-certification has been completed, will be used by NASA, USDA’s National Finance Center, FDIC, Treasury, the State of Illinois, and the Canadian Government for the electronic transfer of documents.”

“DHS ICE OTD … Since 1986, through various contracts, Serco has provided full training lifecycle support for all areas of this key Law Enforcement organization including Inspections, Border Patrol, Enforcement, and DHS operations at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Academy in Glynco, GA. .. Serco developed and scripted three scenarios based on negligent practices identified by the IG report that have resulted in the use of lost or uncontrolled weapons for robbery, murder, and the accidental death of a child. We used creative animation techniques, sound effects, music, and talented voice actors playing multiple characters to create an emotional appeal much different—and infinitely more powerful—from the standard WBT offering.

Serco has trained more than 400,000 DHS students in every region and district, at every land, air and sea border crossing, in classrooms, through WBT, train-the-trainer programs, on-the-job training and through the implementation of performance support systems in a blended learning environment. In collaboration with ICE OTD, our latest efforts have resulted in the accreditation and completion of three programs, including HSI FOTP, ICE OTD IDC, and ICE OPR. Serco was integral to the ICE team that was recognized by the 2012 “Excellence in Law Enforcement” Award given to the ICE Domestic Field Operations Training Program (DFTOP) Accreditation Project for having greatly improved ICE training, increasing operational efficacy and efficiency, and minimizing safety issues to ICE officers and the public.”

Rothschild’s little French poodle Mr. “Plastique” Macron

Rothschild’s little poodle Macron coming to power based on fraudulent voting and money power in France, not even the majority of eligible French voters, will now set out to reverse everything that has been fought for by the labor class in France. Macron’s power grab financed and backed by the French-based House of Rothschild, will now undermine the working class in France. Sort of like being on a farm where the French working class are being harvested. Our only hope now is that the French will take to the streets to begin open warfare as the reality of Rothschild’s French poodle coming to power sets in. Want to read a fascinating thread?

President Emmanuel Macron: Reversing Five Decades of Working-Class Power

May 21, 2017

Introduction: Whatever has been written about President Emmanuel Macron by the yellow or the respectable press has been mere trivia or total falsehood. Media lies have a purpose that goes beyond Macron’s election. Throughout Europe and North America, bankers and manufacturers, NATO, militarists and EU oligarchs, media moguls and verbal assassins, academics and journalists, all characterized the election victory of Macron as a ‘defeat of fascism’ and the ‘triumph of the French people’.

Macron and ‘What People’?

First of all, Macron received only 46% of the actual vote. Over 54% of eligible French voters either abstained, spoiled their ballots or voted for Marine Le Pen, the nationalist populist. In other words, 26 million voters rejected or ignored Macron’s candidacy versus 20.6 million voters who endorsed him. This was despite an unremitting push for Macron from the entire French and European mass media, all of the major political parties and the vast majority of academics, journalists, publishers, undertakers and doormen.

In a word: Emmanuel Macron is a minority President, unpopular to most of the French electorate.

There are some very sound political and socio-economic reasons why Macron’s candidacy would be rejected by most of the French people, while receiving full support from the ruling class.

Secondly, there was a phony image of Macron as the ‘novice, untainted by old-line corrupt politics’. The financial and business press busily painted an image of the virgin Manny Macron bravely prepared to introduce ’sweeping reforms’ and rescue France – a sort of banker-Joan of Arc against the veteran ‘fascist’ Marine Le Pen and her ‘deplorable’ supporters.

The reality is that Macron has always been a highly experienced member of the most elite financial-political networks in France. He served as a senior executive in the notorious Rothschild banking conglomerate. In a few short years ‘Saint Manny’ had accumulated millions of euros in commissions from fixing corporate deals.

Macron’s financial colleagues encouraged him to accept the post of Economic Minister under the decrepit regime of President Francois Hollande. Banker Macron helped the ‘Socialist’ President Hollande shed any of his party(s pro-labor pretensions and embrace a radical anti-worker agenda. As Economic Minister Macron implemented a 40 billion euro tax cut for businesses and proposed far-right legislation designed to weaken workers collective bargaining rights.

 

If you find the thought of Rothschild’s French poodle coming to power revolting and want to read more, why hot head over to James Petras to read the entire article.

9/11 ANALYSIS: Where was Osama bin Laden on September 11, 2001.
Global Research, September 10, 2015
10 September 2010
Region: USA
Theme: Terrorism
Osama bin Laden’s whereabouts on September 10, 2001 were confirmed by a CBS News Report. Osama had been hospitalized on September 10th, 2001, one day before the 9/11 attacks.
How on earth could he have coordinated the attacks from his hospital bed in a heavily guarded Pakistani military hospital located in Rawalpindi.
Bear in mind that the Combined Military Hospital Rawalpindi (under the adminstration of the Pakistani military) exclusively “provides specialised treatment to Army personel and their immediate family”. Osama bin Laden must have had some connections in the Pakistani military or intelligence to be admitted to the hospital. He was, according to Dan Rather’s CBS report, provided with  “treatment for a very special person”.
If the CBS report by Dan Rather is accurate and Osama had indeed been admitted to the Pakistani military hospital on September 10, 2001,  courtesy of America’s ally, he was in all likelihood still in hospital in Rawalpindi on the 11th of September, when the attacks occurred.
In all probability, his whereabouts were known to US officials on the morning of September 12, when Secretary of State Colin Powell initiated negotiations with Pakistan, with a view to arresting and extraditing bin Laden.
The CBS report is a potential bombshell. It invalidates the Osama bin Laden “legend” created by US intelligence. It casts doubt on the notion that Osama was the “mastermind” behind the 9/11 attacks. It points to coverup and complicity at the highest echelons of the US administration.
President Obama’s alleged assassination of Osama bin Laden (April 2011) was part of a propaganda ploy. Osama was the alleged architect of  9/11, organizing and coordinating the 9/11 attacks from his hospital bed in the urology ward of the Rawalpindi military hospital.
The official story was that his whereabouts on 9/11 upon his release from hospital were unknown.

Saturday, 20 October 2012 Andrea Davison, Jimmy Savile, SERCO and How it all Fits In With Child Abuse, Covert Arms Shipments and Government Fraud
  … Andrea   and  journalist Pete Sawyer continued the exposure through Scallywag magazine  who’s co founder, and editor of its successor Spiked, Angus James Wilson,  died mysteriously  in Cyprus around 1996.   Scallywag  also exposed  that MI5 took foreign diplomats and important people  to the North Wales homes and secretly filmed them abusing and torturing boys to use the tapes for blackmail. This is a classic Intelligence modus operandi with regard to child abuse by the famous and influential – especially politicians that they want to control.  The cover-up of  child abuse  over decades indicated the hand of the State Agencies.    This all linked covert arms deals and child abuse.
In Interviews victims had named a number  of police officers  including Fraud Squad officer DC Stephen Winnard  who later arrested Andrea in 2010, senior judges,  celebrities,  and Politicians  including,  Derek Laud, McAlpine and Peter Morrison and also the Duke of Westminster. Victims claimed they were collected from the Children’s Homes in expensive cars, including  Jimmy Savile’s  Rolls Royce and taken to be abused by an elite paedophile ring.  These interviews  and other evidence were kept  by Andrea.
Late 2009 she felt  able to  began a new investigation and  was instructed  to look into  SERCO http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serco_Group and who really owned Britain Nuclear deterrent. Silent Players were  making  fortunes from the grant of lucrative contracts involving billions of tax payer’s money and other secret money which appeared to be gathered from Government sponsored International fraud. SERCO was winning contracts in every area of British life from emptying the bins in Milton Keynes to running  Prisons and providing probation services. Its power was staggering and it was slowly and incrementally taking over the Criminal Justice System.

Evidence indicated   people in SERCO  were  covertly  selling nuclear technology to anyone who would pay  and  in   2009 a massive on-going fraud network began to surface possibly  linking the City of London Police and SERCO with frauds around the Globe. But just as this evidence was being compiled in January 2010 the Derby Fraud Squad working with the City of London Police Raided her small flat and removed all the evidence. At the same time they stole thousands of documents on arms to Iraq, the Jillings report  and interviews with the victims of sexual abuse naming Police Officers and High profile abusers.”

Global swoop on newsgroup paedophiles
By Will Knight
More than 130 people in 19 different countries have been arrested or are under investigation after police traced the distribution of child pornography through different internet newsgroups.
Technical experts at UK internet service provider Demon Internet aided officers from the National Crime Squad’s new Hi-Tech Crime Unit with the investigation.
A spokesperson from Thus, Demon’s parent company, says that investigators were not given access to the server logs that record Demon users’ activities.
Investigators were simply provided with access to newsgroup postings in the same way as any other Demon customer. Technical experts from Demon then helped officers distinguish the identifying information contained within the message “headers” of particular postings.
Face recognition
Officers traced postings relating to certain images to different internet service providers around the world and then contacted Interpol to track down suspects.
Investigators say they discovered 10,000 suspect postings to over 30 different newsgroups and identified 60,000 new images. They plan to use face recognition software to identify victims in different images, to help trace them. This software has been developed in conjunction with UK company Serco, although no technical details have been released.
“This operation has sadly and distressingly brought thousands of new images of abuse to our attention,” said Detective Superintendent Peter Spindler of the National Crime Squad. “These young victims need to be identified and protected as quickly as possible.”
Spindler added: “We are able to show that those accessing these newsgroups did so regularly and with purpose.”
Nine regional police forces in the UK were involved in the operation. Warrants for searches or arrests were issued in 19 countries, including Australia, Canada, Germany, Israel, Japan, Russia, Sweden, Turkey, and the US.
Evading detection
According to a report by the BBC, another 400 suspects could not be traced by investigators. Police have not said how they evaded detection but it is possible to post messages to news groups anonymously using intermediary servers that strip away header information.
The UK government introduced legislation in 2000, giving the police greater access to internet communications. Further provisions for the extended storage of data is included in new anti-terrorist legislation currently passing through parliament.
Privacy advocates claim that these laws could be misused and some question the justification for the legislation. Peter Sommer, at the London School of Economics computer science department, says that the techniques involved in the latest paedophile investigation did not require a special police warrant.
“It is apparent that the existing legislation was sufficient to help the NCS gather evidence and secure the ISP co-operation needed,” Sommer told New Scientist.”
Serious Fraud Office launches inquiry into G4S and Serco overcharging claims
Investigation follows justice secretary’s claims that firms overcharged on electronic tagging contracts for offenders 
Under the contracts more than 20,000 offenders are monitored on electronic tags at any one time.
Alan Travis, home affairs editor
Monday 4 November 2013 12.34 GMTFirst published on Monday 4 November 2013 12.34 GMT
The Serious Fraud Office has launched a formal criminal investigation into two of the government’s biggest suppliers, G4S and Serco, following claims by the justice secretary, Chris Grayling, of tens of millions of pounds of overcharging on electronic tagging contracts for offenders.
Grayling asked the SFO to look into the billing allegations in July when he told MPs that an external audit had revealed that the overcharging included billing for tracking the movements of criminals who had moved abroad, who were back in prison, who had had their tags removed and even, in a few cases, those who had died.
The justice secretary said that in some cases the bills had continued to be presented years after active monitoring had stopped.
Whitehall sources have confirmed that the central allegation in the case revolves around charges for 3,000 phantom offenders. The justice ministry was being billed by the two companies for the tagging of 18,000 offenders a day under the £700m contract when only 15,000 were actually being monitored.
G4S said it would co-operate with the investigation and had been notified by the SFO director, David Green, that it would cover “the contract for the provision of electronic monitoring services which commenced in 2005 as amended and extended until the present day”.
In July Grayling asked the SFO to look into the situation after G4S refused to co-operate with a justice ministry internal forensic audit to establish whether any dishonesty had taken place. The decision to refer Serco, which did co-operate with the MoJ audit, to the SFO was taken in September.
In July Serco said senior management had not been aware of the discrepancies but they did not believe anything dishonest had taken place. The company agreed with the MoJ that if the forensic audit showed dishonesty had taken place they would jointly call in the SFO.
The pattern of overcharging was revealed by a PricewaterhouseCoopers external audit commissioned by Grayling in May after billing discrepancies were discovered during the re-tendering process.
Under the contracts, more than 20,000 offenders are monitored on electronic tags at any one time. They are a key element in the criminal justice system’s menu of community punishments as they are used to enforce curfews for prisoners on early release as well as some court orders.
In a small number of cases they have been used to track the movements of terror suspects and paedophiles. Last week prosecutions were halted against three terror suspects accused of tampering with their G4S-supplied GPS tags amid claims of faults with the tags and their straps.
The two companies are among the government’s biggest suppliers. Both have already agreed to withdraw from bidding for the £3bn next-generation tagging contract.
The Cabinet Office has also been reviewing the 28 contracts that the two companies currently hold with the government worth a total of £9bn, including the management of the atomic weapons establishment at Aldermaston. Grayling has said that both companies can bid for contracts to run 70% of the probation service but will not be awarded them unless the SFO give them a clean bill of health.
Sadiq Khan, the shadow justice secretary, said the SFO decision was a major development. “In July I wrote to the SFO calling on them to investigate claims against G4S and to act swiftly to secure any possible evidence that might be needed. I hope that the time taken to launch this investigation hasn’t resulted in the loss of important evidence,” he said.
“With future Ministry of Justice contracts up for grabs, including more than £600m of probation contracts, the government must act swiftly and bar G4S from bidding for any more until the SFO has concluded its investigation. By failing to do so, David Cameron risks undermining public confidence in our justice system.””
Statement of Jim Flyzik Acting Assistant Secretary for Management and Chief Information Officer (CIO) before the House Government Reform Committee 6/21/2001 …. Treasury also hosted the Federal Bridge Certification Authority (FBCA) project for the Federal government, currently operated by GSA. The FBCA is a mechanism for the secure exchange of information between government agencies. The bridge allows agency public key infrastructures (PKIs) to interoperate as it permits digital credentials (called “digital certificates”) issued by each agency to its employees to be accepted with trust and confidence by other agencies for electronic transactions. This functionality directly supports E-Government, as agencies will be able to perform Internet-enabled transactions, such as credit card collections through banks, or secure emails between agencies, with previously unattainable trust and confidence. A prototype version of the FBCA became operational in February 2000 and was successfully used in a large-scale test in April 2000. During that time, the PKIs of five different organizations within the U.S., the Canadian Government and academia, were cross-certified through the prototype FBCA. The agencies were able to interoperate, successfully exchanging digitally signed electronic mail messages. FBCA is operated by GSA and, once cross-certification has been completed, will be used by NASA, USDA’s National Finance Center, FDIC, Treasury, the State of Illinois, and the Canadian Government for the electronic transfer of documents.”

The US government decided not to pursue criminal charges against HSBC for allowing terrorists and drug dealers to launder millions of dollars after George Osborne and the UK banking regulator intervened to warn that prosecuting Britain’s biggest bank could lead to a “global financial disaster”.
George Osborne reassures Wall Street: UK won’t become ‘Little Britain’
On Monday, a congressional report published letters and emails from Osborne and Financial Services Authority (FSA) officials to their US counterparts warning that launching criminal action against HSBC in 2012 could have sparked a “financial calamity”.
The House financial services committee report said the UK interventions “played a significant role in ultimately persuading the DoJ [Department of Justice] not to prosecute HSBC”. Instead of pursuing a prosecution, the bank agreed to pay a record $1.92bn (£1.4bn) fine.
The report revealed that Osborne wrote to Ben Bernanke, who was then the Federal Reserve chairman, and Timothy Geithner, the then treasury secretary, to warn that prosecuting a “systemically important financial institution” like HSBC“could lead to [financial] contagion” and pose “very serious implications for financial and economic stability, particularly in Europe and Asia”.
The report said the FSA was “problematic”, “weighed in very strongly” and caused a “firestorm”, which led the then attorney general, Eric Holder, to overrule the advice of his own prosecutors and not pursue criminal action.”
Serco farewell to NPL after 19 years of innovation 8 January 2015  Serco said goodbye to the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) at the end of December 2014 after 19 years of extraordinary innovation and science that has seen the establishment build a world-leading reputation and deliver billions of pounds of benefit for the UK economy. During that period under Serco’s management and leadership, NPL has delivered an extraordinary variety and breadth of accomplishments for the UK’s economy and industry. Some of the key achievements during that time have been:… It has been estimated that work carried out by the Centre of Carbon Measurement at NPL will save eight million tonnes of carbon emissions reductions (2% of UK footprint) and over half a billion pounds in economic benefit over the next decade…. NPL’s caesium fountain atomic clock is accurate to 1 second in 158 million years and NPL is playing a key role in introducing rigour to high frequency [spot fixed] trading in the City [by Serco pig-farm banks] through NPL [Zulu] Time.” 
DHS ICE OTD … Since 1986, through various contracts, Serco has provided full training lifecycle support for all areas of this key Law Enforcement organization including Inspections, Border Patrol, Enforcement, and DHS operations at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Academy in Glynco, GA. .. Serco developed and scripted three scenarios based on negligent practices identified by the IG report that have resulted in the use of lost or uncontrolled weapons for robbery, murder, and the accidental death of a child. We used creative animation techniques, sound effects, music, and talented voice actors playing multiple characters to create an emotional appeal much different—and infinitely more powerful—from the standard WBT offering.  

Serco has trained more than 400,000 DHS students in every region and district, at every land, air and sea border crossing, in classrooms, through WBT, train-the-trainer programs, on-the-job training and through the implementation of performance support systems in a blended learning environment. In collaboration with ICE OTD, our latest efforts have resulted in the accreditation and completion of three programs, including HSI FOTP, ICE OTD IDC, and ICE OPR. Serco was integral to the ICE team that was recognized by the 2012 “Excellence in Law Enforcement” Award given to the ICE Domestic Field Operations Training Program (DFTOP) Accreditation Project for having greatly improved ICE training, increasing operational efficacy and efficiency, and minimizing safety issues to ICE officers and the public.”

#2966: AD Links Serco’s Demon City Guilds To Clinton Pedophile Bridge, Baginski Ransomware

United States Marine Field McConnell 
Plum City Online – (AbelDanger.net)
May 18, 2017

To Whom It May Concern:

Field McConnell – United States Marine and Global Operations Director of Abel Danger (AD) – has linked Serco’s Demon face-recognition software, allegedly used by City & Guilds alumni to help Hillary Clinton track pedophile pimps through the federal bridge certification authority, to Maureen Baginski, Serco’s V-P Intelligence Services and the former head of NSA’s Signals Intelligence Directorate, whose “Shadow Brokers” have been and are now blackmailing victims into standing down sovereign-state defenses to Ransomware-type viruses.

McConnell alleges that Serco used Baroness Garden, the former manager of City & Guilds (1988-2007) and her husband the late Timothy Garden to stage the Global Guardian federal-bridge resilience exercise on 9/11 when pedophile associates of Ms. Baginski and Ms. Clinton were able to liquidate U.S. assets, crash the capital markets and silence blackmailed witnesses.

“The Wannacry Cyber Attack Puts NSA Hacking Back Into Focus

Reuters May 15, 2017

An unprecedented global cyberattack that infected computers in at least 150 countries beginning on Friday has unleashed a new wave of criticism of the U.S. National Security Agency.

The attack was made possible by a flaw in Microsoft’s Windows software that the NSA used to build a hacking tool for its own use – only to have that tool and others end up in the hands of a mysterious group called the Shadow Brokers, which then published them online.

Microsoft President Brad Smith sharply criticized the U.S. government on Sunday for “stockpiling” software flaws that it often cannot protect, citing recent leaks of both NSA and CIA hacking tools.

“Repeatedly, exploits in the hands of governments have leaked into the public domain and caused widespread damage,” Smith wrote in a blog post. “An equivalent scenario with conventional weapons would be the U.S. military having some of its Tomahawk missiles stolen.”

Some major technology companies, including Alphabet’s Google and Facebook, declined comment on the Microsoft statement.

But some other technology industry executives said privately that it reflected a widely held view in Silicon Valley that the U.S. government is too willing to jeopardize internet security in order to preserve offensive cyber capabilities.

The NSA did not respond to requests for comment.

The NSA and other intelligence services generally aim to balance disclosing software flaws they unearth against keeping them secret for espionage and cyber warfare purposes.

On Monday, senior administration officials defended the government’s handling of software flaws, without confirming the NSA link to WannaCry, the tool used in the global ransomware attack.

CYBERSECURITYA Group Linked to Leaking NSA Spying Tools Is Making Another Threat

“The United States, more than probably any other country, is extremely careful with their processes about how they handle any vulnerabilities that they’re aware of,” Tom Bossert, the White House homeland security adviser, said at a press briefing on Monday.

Other tools from the presumed NSA toolkit published by the Shadow Brokers have also been repurposed by criminals and are being sold on underground forums, researchers said. But they appear to be less damaging than WannaCry. It is not known who is behind the Shadow Brokers.

Derek Manky, global security strategist at cyber security firm Fortinet, said he thinks WannaCry is probably the worst that will come from the Shadow Brokers’ publicly dumped toolkit, though the group may have held back from public revealing everything it obtained

“Out of that batch, it is probably a high-water mark,” Manky said.

“WE KNEW IT COULD BE A PROBLEM”

Security experts said the NSA had engaged in responsible disclosure by informing Microsoft of the flaw at some point after learning it had been stolen and a month before the tools leaked online.

Users who do not patch their systems and the Shadow Brokers were more directly responsible for the attack than NSA, they said.

The Department of Homeland Security began an “aggressive awareness campaign” to alert industry partners to the importance of installing the Microsoft patch shortly after it was released in March, an agency official working on the attack said.

“This one, we knew it could be a problem,” the official told Reuters.

“NSA should be embarrassed – they’ve had a lot of damaging leaks,” said James Lewis, a former U.S. official who is now a cyber expert at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. Still, he said, “Microsoft needs to admit that the 20th century is over, it’s a much more hostile environment, and that hobbling the NSA won’t make us any safer.”

 

How to Protect Yourself From Cyber Attacks Involving Ransomware

Criminals use ransomware to extort money from individual users and big businesses.

Under former President Barack Obama, the U.S. government created an inter-agency review, known as the Vulnerability Equities Process, to determine whether flaws should be shared or kept secret.

White House cyber security coordinator Rob Joyce, who previously worked in the NSA’s elite hacking squad, told a Reuters reporter in April that the Trump administration was considering how to “optimize” the Vulnerability Equities Process, but he did not elaborate.

The White House did not respond to a request for comment about the status of the review process. A source familiar with the matter said equities meetings still take place but less frequently than they did under the Obama administration.

In Congress, Republican Senator Ron Johnson and Democratic Senator Brian Schatz are working on legislation that would codify the review process.

“We have reached a turning point where it is not sustainable for governments to think they can retain vulnerabilities for very long,” said Ari Schwartz, who oversaw technology security issues at the National Security Council during the Obama administration.”

“Serious Fraud Office launches inquiry into G4S and Serco overcharging claims

Investigation follows justice secretary’s claims that firms overcharged on electronic tagging contracts for offenders

The Cabinet Office has also been reviewing the 28 contracts that the two companies currently hold with the government worth a total of £9bn, including the management of the atomic weapons establishment at Aldermaston. Grayling has said that both companies can bid for contracts to run 70% of the probation service but will not be awarded them unless the SFO give them a clean bill of health.

Sadiq Khan, the shadow justice secretary, said the SFO decision was a major development. “In July I wrote to the SFO calling on them to investigate claims against G4S and to act swiftly to secure any possible evidence that might be needed. I hope that the time taken to launch this investigation hasn’t resulted in the loss of important evidence,” he said.

“With future Ministry of Justice contracts up for grabs, including more than £600m of probation contracts, the government must act swiftly and bar G4S from bidding for any more until the SFO has concluded its investigation. By failing to do so, David Cameron risks undermining public confidence in our justice system.””

Serco supports National Crime Agency cyber exercise

Published: 11 Dec 2015
Serco has taken part in a ground-breaking exercise run by the UK’s National Crime Agency (NCA) to test the international response to serious cyber crime.

Specialists from across Europe were put through their paces using Serco‘s unique and realistic cyber exercising capability – cybX – which prepares private and public sector organisations to test their ability to prepare and respond to serious cyber attacks.
Exercise ‘Silver Shadow’ – a multinational exercise run by the NCA’s National Cyber Crime Unit (NCCU), funded by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and supported by the Home Office – saw officers from eight different countries come together to assess their collective response to a simulated cyber attack on a fictitious international petroleum company.

The aim was to test how investigators and prosecutors would work together in the event of a complex criminal incident spanning several different legal jurisdictions, to ensure an effective response to future cyber crime attacks.

The week-long exercise began on Monday 30 November and took place at the Cabinet Office’s Emergency Planning College (EPC) in North Yorkshire, which is run by Serco.

The countries involved in the exercise were Bulgaria, Georgia, Lithuania, Moldova, Romania, Ukraine, the UK, represented by the NCA’s NCCU, and the US, represented by the FBI. A representative from Europol’s Joint Cyber Action Taskforce (J-CAT) also took part.

cybX compliments the wider civil resilience training Serco provides at the EPC, enabling organisations to test and improve their cyber resilience in a safe, realistic and secure environment. Management and IT staff are tested through a variety of simulated scenarios on their ability to identify and end a cyber-attack, and manage their organistion’s response.

The training gives participants a greater understanding of their organisation’s risks, strengths and areas for improvement, as well as a better understanding of the communications and relationships they need with their supply chain, customers and other stakeholders, including law enforcement.

Richard Preece, Serco‘s Director of cybX, commented: “It’s been a privilege to support members of the UK and international law enforcement community. Every day we hear about another cyber-attack and our training has helped the NCA to improve their capability to tackle cyber crime.

“It’s one thing to invest in the best technology, but organisations must also invest in developing their people and test their capabilities. Serco‘s training puts employees from the board room to server room through their paces, enabling organisations to be more resilient to the inevitable cyber-attack.”

“The Wannacry Cyber Attack Puts NSA Hacking Back Into Focus
Reuters
May 15, 2017
An unprecedented global cyberattack that infected computers in at least 150 countries beginning on Friday has unleashed a new wave of criticism of the U.S. National Security Agency.

The attack was made possible by a flaw in Microsoft’s Windows software that the NSA used to build a hacking tool for its own use – only to have that tool and others end up in the hands of a mysterious group called the Shadow Brokers, which then published them online.

Microsoft President Brad Smith sharply criticized the U.S. government on Sunday for “stockpiling” software flaws that it often cannot protect, citing recent leaks of both NSA and CIA hacking tools.

“Repeatedly, exploits in the hands of governments have leaked into the public domain and caused widespread damage,” Smith wrote in a blog post. “An equivalent scenario with conventional weapons would be the U.S. military having some of its Tomahawk missiles stolen.”

Some major technology companies, including Alphabet’s Google and Facebook, declined comment on the Microsoft statement.

But some other technology industry executives said privately that it reflected a widely held view in Silicon Valley that the U.S. government is too willing to jeopardize internet security in order to preserve offensive cyber capabilities.

The NSA did not respond to requests for comment.

The NSA and other intelligence services generally aim to balance disclosing software flaws they unearth against keeping them secret for espionage and cyber warfare purposes.

On Monday, senior administration officials defended the government’s handling of software flaws, without confirming the NSA link to WannaCry, the tool used in the global ransomware attack.

CYBERSECURITYA Group Linked to Leaking NSA Spying Tools Is Making Another Threat
“The United States, more than probably any other country, is extremely careful with their processes about how they handle any vulnerabilities that they’re aware of,” Tom Bossert, the White House homeland security adviser, said at a press briefing on Monday.

Other tools from the presumed NSA toolkit published by the Shadow Brokers have also been repurposed by criminals and are being sold on underground forums, researchers said. But they appear to be less damaging than WannaCry. It is not known who is behind the Shadow Brokers.

Derek Manky, global security strategist at cyber security firm Fortinet, said he thinks WannaCry is probably the worst that will come from the Shadow Brokers’ publicly dumped toolkit, though the group may have held back from public revealing everything it obtained.
“Out of that batch, it is probably a high-water mark,” Manky said.

“WE KNEW IT COULD BE A PROBLEM”

Security experts said the NSA had engaged in responsible disclosure by informing Microsoft of the flaw at some point after learning it had been stolen and a month before the tools leaked online.
Users who do not patch their systems and the Shadow Brokers were more directly responsible for the attack than NSA, they said.

The Department of Homeland Security began an “aggressive awareness campaign” to alert industry partners to the importance of installing the Microsoft patch shortly after it was released in March, an agency official working on the attack said.

“This one, we knew it could be a problem,” the official told Reuters.

“NSA should be embarrassed – they’ve had a lot of damaging leaks,” said James Lewis, a former U.S. official who is now a cyber expert at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. Still, he said, “Microsoft needs to admit that the 20th century is over, it’s a much more hostile environment, and that hobbling the NSA won’t make us any safer.”

How to Protect Yourself From Cyber Attacks Involving Ransomware
Criminals use ransomware to extort money from individual users and big businesses.

Under former President Barack Obama, the U.S. government created an inter-agency review, known as the Vulnerability Equities Process, to determine whether flaws should be shared or kept secret.

White House cyber security coordinator Rob Joyce, who previously worked in the NSA’s elite hacking squad, told a Reuters reporter in April that the Trump administration was considering how to “optimize” the Vulnerability Equities Process, but he did not elaborate.

The White House did not respond to a request for comment about the status of the review process. A source familiar with the matter said equities meetings still take place but less frequently than they did under the Obama administration.

In Congress, Republican Senator Ron Johnson and Democratic Senator Brian Schatz are working on legislation that would codify the review process.

“We have reached a turning point where it is not sustainable for governments to think they can retain vulnerabilities for very long,” said Ari Schwartz, who oversaw technology security issues at the National Security Council during the Obama administration.”

“28 November 2001
Global swoop on newsgroup paedophiles
By Will Knight

More than 130 people in 19 different countries have been arrested or are under investigation after police traced the distribution of child pornography through different internet newsgroups.

Technical experts at UK internet service provider Demon Internet aided officers from the National Crime Squad’s new Hi-Tech Crime Unit with the investigation.

A spokesperson from Thus, Demon’s parent company, says that investigators were not given access to the server logs that record Demon users’ activities.

Investigators were simply provided with access to newsgroup postings in the same way as any other Demon customer. Technical experts from Demon then helped officers distinguish the identifying information contained within the message “headers” of particular postings.

Face recognition
Officers traced postings relating to certain images to different internet service providers around the world and then contacted Interpol to track down suspects.

Investigators say they discovered 10,000 suspect postings to over 30 different newsgroups and identified 60,000 new images. They plan to use face recognition software to identify victims in different images, to help trace them. This software has been developed in conjunction with UK company Serco, although no technical details have been released.

“This operation has sadly and distressingly brought thousands of new images of abuse to our attention,” said Detective Superintendent Peter Spindler of the National Crime Squad. “These young victims need to be identified and protected as quickly as possible.”

Spindler added: “We are able to show that those accessing these newsgroups did so regularly and with purpose.”

Nine regional police forces in the UK were involved in the operation. Warrants for searches or arrests were issued in 19 countries, including Australia, Canada, Germany, Israel, Japan, Russia, Sweden, Turkey, and the US.

Evading detection

According to a report by the BBC, another 400 suspects could not be traced by investigators. Police have not said how they evaded detection but it is possible to post messages to news groups anonymously using intermediary servers that strip away header information.

The UK government introduced legislation in 2000, giving the police greater access to internet communications. Further provisions for the extended storage of data is included in new anti-terrorist legislation currently passing through parliament.

Privacy advocates claim that these laws could be misused and some question the justification for the legislation. Peter Sommer, at the London School of Economics computer science department, says that the techniques involved in the latest paedophile investigation did not require a special police warrant.

“It is apparent that the existing legislation was sufficient to help the NCS gather evidence and secure the ISP co-operation needed,” Sommer told New Scientist.”

“Serious Fraud Office launches inquiry into G4S and Serco overcharging claims

Investigation follows justice secretary’s claims that firms overcharged on electronic tagging contracts for offenders

Under the contracts more than 20,000 offenders are monitored on electronic tags at any one time.
Alan Travis, home affairs editor

Monday 4 November 2013 12.34 GMTFirst published on Monday 4 November 2013 12.34 GMT

The Serious Fraud Office has launched a formal criminal investigation into two of the government’s biggest suppliers, G4S and Serco, following claims by the justice secretary, Chris Grayling, of tens of millions of pounds of overcharging on electronic tagging contracts for offenders.

Grayling asked the SFO to look into the billing allegations in July when he told MPs that an external audit had revealed that the overcharging included billing for tracking the movements of criminals who had moved abroad, who were back in prison, who had had their tags removed and even, in a few cases, those who had died.

The justice secretary said that in some cases the bills had continued to be presented years after active monitoring had stopped.

Whitehall sources have confirmed that the central allegation in the case revolves around charges for 3,000 phantom offenders. The justice ministry was being billed by the two companies for the tagging of 18,000 offenders a day under the £700m contract when only 15,000 were actually being monitored.

G4S said it would co-operate with the investigation and had been notified by the SFO director, David Green, that it would cover “the contract for the provision of electronic monitoring services which commenced in 2005 as amended and extended until the present day”.

In July Grayling asked the SFO to look into the situation after G4S refused to co-operate with a justice ministry internal forensic audit to establish whether any dishonesty had taken place. The decision to refer Serco, which did co-operate with the MoJ audit, to the SFO was taken in September.

In July Serco said senior management had not been aware of the discrepancies but they did not believe anything dishonest had taken place. The company agreed with the MoJ that if the forensic audit showed dishonesty had taken place they would jointly call in the SFO.

The pattern of overcharging was revealed by a PricewaterhouseCoopers external audit commissioned by Grayling in May after billing discrepancies were discovered during the re-tendering process.
Under the contracts, more than 20,000 offenders are monitored on electronic tags at any one time. They are a key element in the criminal justice system’s menu of community punishments as they are used to enforce curfews for prisoners on early release as well as some court orders.

In a small number of cases they have been used to track the movements of terror suspects and paedophiles. Last week prosecutions were halted against three terror suspects accused of tampering with their G4S-supplied GPS tags amid claims of faults with the tags and their straps.

The two companies are among the government’s biggest suppliers. Both have already agreed to withdraw from bidding for the £3bn next-generation tagging contract.

The Cabinet Office has also been reviewing the 28 contracts that the two companies currently hold with the government worth a total of £9bn, including the management of the atomic weapons establishment at Aldermaston.

Benghazi Whistleblowers – On Hillary’s Kill List

OUR STORY

We are whistleblowers as eye witnesses to the war crimes committed in Libya by Hillary Clinton.

To Whom It May Concern:

Field McConnell – United States Marine and Global Operations Director of Abel Danger (AD) – has linked recent virus injects which shut down parts of the NHS hospital computer system to ‘ransomware’ allegedly developed by Serco shareholders to extort guest actors in sado-masochistic and pedophile ‘raves’ at a B.C. pig farm (1996-2002) and Maureen Baginski, Serco’s Vice President of Intelligence Services and former head of NSA’s Signals Intelligence Directorate, who is allegedly using Serco’s Demon face recognition software to blackmail mentors and clients of the federal bridge certification authority (FBCA) network.

“The Wannacry Cyber Attack Puts NSA Hacking Back Into Focus 
Reuters May 15, 2017 
An unprecedented global cyberattack that infected computers in at least 150 countries beginning on Friday has unleashed a new wave of criticism of the U.S. National Security Agency.

The attack was made possible by a flaw in Microsoft’s Windows software that the NSA used to build a hacking tool for its own use – only to have that tool and others end up in the hands of a mysterious group called the Shadow Brokers, which then published them online.

Microsoft President Brad Smith sharply criticized the U.S. government on Sunday for “stockpiling” software flaws that it often cannot protect, citing recent leaks of both NSA and CIA hacking tools.

“Repeatedly, exploits in the hands of governments have leaked into the public domain and caused widespread damage,” Smith wrote in a blog post. “An equivalent scenario with conventional weapons would be the U.S. military having some of its Tomahawk missiles stolen.”

Some major technology companies, including Alphabet’s Google and Facebook, declined comment on the Microsoft statement. But some other technology industry executives said privately that it reflected a widely held view in Silicon Valley that the U.S. government is too willing to jeopardize internet security in order to preserve offensive cyber capabilities. The NSA did not respond to requests for comment.

The NSA and other intelligence services generally aim to balance disclosing software flaws they unearth against keeping them secret for espionage and cyber warfare purposes.

On Monday, senior administration officials defended the government’s handling of software flaws, without confirming the NSA link to WannaCry, the tool used in the global ransomware attack.

CYBERSECURITYA Group Linked to Leaking NSA Spying Tools Is Making Another Threat

“The United States, more than probably any other country, is extremely careful with their processes about how they handle any vulnerabilities that they’re aware of,” Tom Bossert, the White House homeland security adviser, said at a press briefing on Monday.

Other tools from the presumed NSA toolkit published by the Shadow Brokers have also been repurposed by criminals and are being sold on underground forums, researchers said. But they appear to be less damaging than WannaCry. It is not known who is behind the Shadow Brokers.

Derek Manky, global security strategist at cyber security firm Fortinet, said he thinks WannaCry is probably the worst that will come from the Shadow Brokers’ publicly dumped toolkit, though the group may have held back from public revealing everything it obtained.

“Out of that batch, it is probably a high-water mark,” Manky said.

“WE KNEW IT COULD BE A PROBLEM” Security experts said the NSA had engaged in responsible disclosure by informing Microsoft of the flaw at some point after learning it had been stolen and a month before the tools leaked online.

Users who do not patch their systems and the Shadow Brokers were more directly responsible for the attack than NSA, they said.

The Department of Homeland Security began an “aggressive awareness campaign” to alert industry partners to the importance of installing the Microsoft patch shortly after it was released in March, an agency official working on the attack said. “This one, we knew it could be a problem,” the official told Reuters.

“NSA should be embarrassed – they’ve had a lot of damaging leaks,” said James Lewis, a former U.S. official who is now a cyber expert at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. Still, he said, “Microsoft needs to admit that the 20th century is over, it’s a much more hostile environment, and that hobbling the NSA won’t make us any safer.” For more on the ransomware attack, watch Fortune’s video:

How to Protect Yourself From Cyber Attacks Involving Ransomware Criminals use ransomware to extort money from individual users and big businesses.

Under former President Barack Obama, the U.S. government created an inter-agency review, known as the Vulnerability Equities Process, to determine whether flaws should be shared or kept secret.

White House cyber security coordinator Rob Joyce, who previously worked in the NSA’s elite hacking squad, told a Reuters reporter in April that the Trump administration was considering how to “optimize” the Vulnerability Equities Process, but he did not elaborate.

The White House did not respond to a request for comment about the status of the review process. A source familiar with the matter said equities meetings still take place but less frequently than they did under the Obama administration.

In Congress, Republican Senator Ron Johnson and Democratic Senator Brian Schatz are working on legislation that would codify the review process.

“We have reached a turning point where it is not sustainable for governments to think they can retain vulnerabilities for very long,” said Ari Schwartz, who oversaw technology security issues at the National Security Council during the Obama administration.”

Serco Executive Maureen Baginski Receives FBI Intelligence Analysts Association Award RESTON, VIRGINIA – May 2, 2011 – SercoInc., a provider of professional, technology, and management services to the federal government, is proud to announce that Maureen Baginski, Vice President of Serco’s Intelligence Services, received the FBI Intelligence Analysts Association (IAA) Award. The first annual event and ceremony was held on April 12 in Washington, DC.

Ms. Baginski was recognized for her work from 2003 to 2005, when she served as the FBI’s Executive Assistant Director for Intelligence. In that position, she was responsible for establishing and managing the FBI’s first-ever intelligence program. She adapted FBI intelligence capabilities with information technologies to create an intelligence-sharing operation that could identify threats before they became attacks.

During the awards ceremony, James Mackey, a former FBI supervisory intelligence analyst, had these words to say about Ms. Baginski, “Ladies and gentlemen, this person, Maureen Baginski immediately established credibility through hard work the old fashioned way. She became one of the Director’s tugboats, and again, through hard work…she established the FBI directorate for domestic intelligence and brought about fundamental change in the FBI, not only for you, but for the American people.”

Prior to her role with the FBI, Ms. Baginski served at the National Security Agency (NSA) for 23 years, 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.

“We are truly proud of Maureen and this great honor she received. She has brought to Serco the same can-do attitude she exuded while working for the FBI and she continues to lead her team here at Serco with pride and respect,” said Ed Casey, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer atSerco.

Ms. Baginski is also the recipient of two Presidential Rank Awards, two Director of Central Intelligence National Achievement Medals, the Director of Military Intelligence’s Leadership Award, and NSA’s Exceptional Civilian Service Award. She holds BA and MA degrees in Slavic Languages and Linguistics from the University of Albany. In December 2005, she received an honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters from the University of Albany for her service to the nation.

“A new piece from today’s Vancouver Sun. Starnet took bets, warrants disclose
Police information also details lurid images of sado-masochism and degradation pulled from Starnet’s sites. 
David Baines, Sun Business Reporter Vancouver Sun 
On Nov. 3, Eric Wickberg bet $15 that the New York Rangers would beat the point spread over the New Jersey Devils. He lost. But winning was not the point of the exercise. Wickberg was a Vancouver police detective assigned to the Coordinated Law Enforcement Unit, which was conducting a covert investigation into Internet gaming sites operated by Vancouver-based Starnet Communications International Inc.

The bet was one of dozens placed by Wickberg and his CLEU colleagues, as outlined in a 61-page information document filed by police to obtain a warrant to search Starnet’s Carrall’s Street office and the homes of 15 Starnet officers, directors and associates.

However, Starnet has said that due to the uncertain legality of Internet gambling in Canada and the United States, the company does not accept bets from residents of those countries.

The same search warrant information details in lurid detail the images of sado-masochism and degradation that police officers pulled from Starnet’s pornography Web sites.

Police further allege that a consultant to Starnet told them he been given a “staff-demo access code,” enabling him to access, through the Sizzle site, images of child pornography. No details were provided.

The allegations shocked investors, who had taken comfort in Starnet’s assurances that, in an effort to attract institutional investors, it was getting out of the porn business.

Even the New York office of mainstream brokerage firm Nesbitt Burns, a subsidiary of the venerable Bank of Montreal, was considering a possible $30-million US share offering.

But Starnet’s share price, which was riding the hot air of Internet gaming mania, crashed Friday when local police, accompanied by a SWAT team and computer specialists from the U.S. Internal Revenue Service and the U.S. Customs Service, invaded Starnet’s Carrall Street office and seized equipment and records.

On Friday, after news of the search broke, Starnet’s stock price dropped 69 per cent to $4 US on the OTC bulletin board in the United States. On Monday, it recouped some of that loss, closing at $5.60 on huge volume of 6.8 million shares.

Vancouver police representative Constable Anne Drennan said police fielded about 100 calls from anxious investors Friday and more Monday.

“The investors were almost exclusively from the United States, just frantic investors,” she told a news conference.

“They wanted to know if they should sell. Of course, we couldn’t give that kind of advice.”

She said some callers were emotional, saying they had lost everything.

“Men were crying over the phone, saying their entire life savings had been wiped out. We’ve never dealt with anything like this. “A lot of people have been affected. It was hard. It was sad. I felt bad for them, but what can you say?”

Drennan said about 50 police officers are poring over computer desks, records and other material seized during the search, which lasted until 8 p.m. Sunday.

She said charges are pending, but they could be a way off due to the huge amount of information to be analysed.

Starnet chief executive officer Mark Dohlen said the company “will continue its operations and proceed with its strategic plans following minor interruptions to service over the past weekend.”

He insisted that his firm — which has a gaming licence in the Caribbean island country Antigua but no licence to offer games of chance in British Columbia — has been complying with all applicable laws and regulations.

“Starnet is a cutting-edge company that is a pioneer in Internet gaming,” he said in a release.

“We believe the selective investigation into the operations of our company is a result of a misunderstanding of Internet issues as they relate to the process of our business and the venues in which our services are offered. There is little or no legal precedent relative to this business.”

In a separate release, Starnet re-confirmed its plan to dump, through an auction process, its porn sites.

“This divestiture will allow Starnet to focus all available resources on the further development of its core Internet gaming businesses,” the company said.

According to the search warrant information, Starnet was incorporated in the Barbados in November 1996, and its directors included Mark Dohlen, Jason Bolduc (who has since left the company) and Roy Gould, now vice-president of Vancouver brokerage firm United Capital Securities Inc.

In March 1997, Starnet merged with a Delaware corporation to allow the firm to re-domicile in that jurisdiction. Initially, Starnet’s sole business was distributing Internet porn from it offices at 425 Carrall, the former office of engineering firm H.A. Simons.

According to the search warrant information, its early operations were partly financed through a $207,869 loan from Celestine Fund Management Inc., a privately-held investment fund based in the British Virgin Islands.

In June 1997, Celestine sold the debt to DGD Wealth Management, a B.C. company headed by Gould, the Vancouver broker.

The following month, Starnet began to diversify its operations, incorporating World Gaming Services Inc., based in Antigua, to operate Internet gaming Websites, and Electronic Financial Services Caribbean Inc., to handle the monetary transactions.

With hundreds of companies clamouring to jump on the gambling bandwagon, Starnet quickly realized that it could make more money licensing its betting technology than on taking bets.

It set up another Antiguan subsidiary, Softec Systems Caribbean Inc., and offered licences for $100,000 each, plus royalties ranging from 10 to 40 per cent of gross revenues. By last month, it had licensed nearly 50 companies.

The prospect of a continual stream of cash flowing into Starnet’s coffers excited investors, who bid up the stock to $26 US in July, giving the company a total stock market value of $1 billion Cdn.

Starnet also advertised that it would help its licensees get gambling licences from the Antiguan government, which charged $100,000 US per year for a gambing licence.

It developed a close relationship with Antiguan officials. On July 8, it announced that Clare Roberts, who served as Antigua’s attorney-general and minister of justice from 1994 to 1997, had been appointed a director of the company.

According to the search warrant information, Roberts attended an Internet gaming conference in Vancouver in June, where an undercover officer asked him whether the Antiguan government allows its licensees to take bets from the United States.

According to the information, Roberts replied, “Officially it’s discouraged, but if you want to, you know, they can’t really stop you.”

In late July, news of a dispute between Starnet and one of its biggest licensees, rocked Starnet’s share price.

Claude Levy, who represented Las Vegas Casinos Inc., said Starnet’s gaming technology was grossly deficient and claimed to be filing a $1-billion US damage claim against Starnet. Starnet’s share price dropped by nearly half to $13 US.

Starnet rejected Levy’s claims and noted that, days earlier, Starnet had cancelled his firm’s licence for non-payment of $203,000 in licensing fees that had been owing since May 31.

Levy’s firm never did file a lawsuit, but Starnet did, claiming in B.C. Supreme Court that Levy had made “false and malicious” statements about the company.

However, according to the search warrant information, Levy had been complaining about Starnet’s service for months.

Vancouver police searched the curbside garbage of Starnet officer Paul Giles in February 1996 and found e-mail from Levy complaining of overbilling.

Levy said the overbilling left them “wide open to massive chargebacks, with very little recourse to the clients.”

He further stated: “Many consumers already don’t trust the Internet with their credit cards, and many don’t trust the online casinos, but Starnet is doing the most damage to the industry, just because you have so many incompetent people, acting like they know what they are doing.”

Police also found in Giles’ garbage a copy of his will which stated:

“Starnet owes me $50,000 US, Roy [Gould, the broker] has $130,000 US or more” and “options exercised by Roy should be an additional $60,000 US or more.”

The will also indicated that Gould held, on Giles’ behalf, 500,000 to 550,000 free-trading shares in an account at United Capital Securities.

Treasury also hosted the Federal Bridge Certification Authority (FBCA) project for the Federal government, currently operated by GSA. The FBCA is a mechanism for the secure exchange of information between government agencies. The bridge allows agency public key infrastructures (PKIs) to interoperate as it permits digital credentials (called “digital certificates”) issued by each agency to its employees to be accepted with trust and confidence by other agencies for electronic transactions. This functionality directly supports E-Government, as agencies will be able to perform Internet-enabled transactions, such as credit card collections through banks, or secure emails between agencies, with previously unattainable trust and confidence. A prototype version of the FBCA became operational in February 2000 and was successfully used in a large-scale test in April 2000. During that time, the PKIs of five different organizations within the U.S., the Canadian Government and academia, were cross-certified through the prototype FBCA. The agencies were able to interoperate, successfully exchanging digitally signed electronic mail messages. FBCA is operated by GSA and, once cross-certification has been completed, will be used by NASA, USDA’s National Finance Center, FDIC, Treasury, the State of Illinois, and the Canadian Government for the electronic transfer of documents.”

“Robert Pickton’s siblings knew what serial killer was doing, lawsuits by victims’ children allege 
Lori Culbert, Postmedia News | May 9, 2013 11:55 PM ET 
More from Postmedia News 
Robert Pickton’s siblings knew what serial killer was doing, lawsuits by victims’ children allege VANCOUVER — Four children of Vancouver’s missing women have filed lawsuits against serial killer Robert Pickton and two of his siblings over the loss of their mothers.

The civil suits filed Thursday also name as defendants the provincial justice ministry, the city of Vancouver, and five RCMP officers.

The lawsuits name Pickton’s brother, Dave Pickton, and sister, Linda Wright, because they were part owners in the family farm. 

“David Pickton and Linda Wright knew that Robert Pickton and others tortured and killed sex workers and other persons at the Pickton property, and were aware that the actions and propensities of Robert Pickton represented a danger to persons attending the Pickton property,” the lawsuits say.

The lawsuits, filed by Vancouver lawyer Jason Gratl, say the deaths of their mothers caused the children to suffer loss of emotional and financial support, loss of guidance in developing cultural identity, and psychological trauma.

The allegations in the lawsuits have not been proven in court. The defendants have not yet filed written responses.

The lawsuits were filed by Sarah Jean de Vries, daughter of Sarah de Vries; Theresa Mongovius, daughter of Cynthia Feliks; Troy and Joel Boen, sons of Yvonne Boen; and Melissa Marin, Carol Cote and Donald Cote, children of Dianne Rock.

DNA belonging to all four women — de Vries, Feliks, Boen and Rock — were found on Pickton’s Port Coquitlam pig farm. He faced first-degree murder in their deaths, but the charges were stayed after he was convicted in 2007 of killing six other missing women.

The lawsuits argue police should have been aware Pickton was attacking sex workers in the Downtown Eastside, in part because he was charged in 1997 with the attempted murder of a woman on his farm. Those charges were stayed, but a RCMP corporal put a note on a police database to warn all officers that Pickton was a threat to women on the street.

“Notwithstanding their knowledge of risks to sex workers, [Vancouver police] and RCMP failed to warn Sarah of the specific risk that a serial killer was active in the Downtown Eastside,” the de Vries lawsuit says.

“The VPD and RCMP owed and breached a duty of care to Sarah, as a member of the public and as an individual within a group at heightened risk of harm from a serial killer.”

The lawsuits allege police failed to pursue all investigative leads, mismanaged information, were “inadequate and inept” with surveillance and undercover operations, and failed to confirm or rule out suspects.

The RCMP officers being sued are Supt. Ric Hall, Cpl. Frank Henley, Const. Ruth Chapman (Yurkiw), Supt. Earl Moulton and Staff Sgt. Brad Zalys. Some are now retired.

The lawsuits allege a Crown prosecutor was negligent when she stayed the charges against Pickton in the 1997 attack.

“Crown counsel knew or ought to have known that entering a stay of proceedings would increase the risk that Robert Pickton would continue to cause death and serious injury,” the documents say. Postmedia News”
