#2545: Serco’s Crime-Scene Carbon Caps – Clinton’s 8(a) Red-Switch Triggers –Twin Towers Death-Pool Trump
1. Abel Danger (AD) asserts that Serco provides real-time surveillance and a long-range carbon cap and kill service at crimes scenes for the ‘Nine Eyes’ countries with implied ‘Spectre’ identities listed as: ‘The Five Eyes’ plus Brazil, Russia, India and China.
2. AD asserts that Clinton war-room commanders deploy tagged offenders and long-range 8(a) companies over the Defense Red Switch Network to trigger mass-casualty events where Serco’s bookmakers share vigs based on the total carbon offsets by a Nine Eyes hit.
3. AD asserts that Serco’s 8(a) companies demolished the WTC Twin Towers in New York on 9/11 for Donald Trump and Nine Eyes death-pool bettors who watched the “first live-broadcast mass snuff film in human history” through Hawkeye onion-router surveillance aircraft linked by a Red Switch Network to FS Charles de Gaulle.
United States Marine Field McConnell (http://www.abeldanger.net/2010/01/field-mcconnell-bio.html) invites CJCS Joseph Dunford to release any evidence obtained by the Marine Corps Intelligence Activity to support his request to Congress for Letters of Marque to recover the Red Switch Network and Hawkeye onion-router devices installed on the Charles de Gaulle.
“Bill Clinton, Hours Before 9/11 Attacks: ‘I Could Have Killed’ Osama bin Laden
By DAN GOOD
Aug 1, 2014, 2:09 AM ET
Hours before the 9/11 terrorist attacks, former President Bill Clinton told an audience in Australia about his missed chance to kill attack mastermind Osama bin Laden, according to audio released this week.
Clinton was speaking at a business meeting in Melbourne when the topic turned to terrorism.
“I’m just saying, you know, if I were Osama bin Laden … He’s a very smart guy. I spent a lot of time thinking about him. And I nearly got him once,” Clinton said in the audio, which was recorded by former Liberal Party head Michael Kroger and aired by Sky News.
“I nearly got him. And I could have killed him, but I would have had to destroy a little town called Kandahar in Afghanistan and kill 300 innocent women and children, and then I would have been no better than him.
“And so I didn’t do it.”
Hours after Clinton spoke, a hijacked Boeing 767 slammed into the north tower of New York City’s World Trade Center. A second plane struck the south tower 18 minutes later. Other planes crashed in Washington, D.C., and western Pennsylvania. The attacks, organized by bin Laden, killed more than 3,000 people.
Bin Laden, who headed the terrorist group al Qaeda, had been targeted by authorities for his role in the 1998 bombings of U.S. embassies in Tanzania and Kenya. The U.S. government targeted bin Laden in August 1998 strikes, but he was not injured.
Clinton’s recorded statements from 2001 referred to a proposed strike in December 1998, after intelligence indicated that Bin Laden was staying at the governor’s residence in Kandahar. That proposed attack was addressed in the 9/11 Commission Report, released in 2004.
According to the report, the missed chance made some lower-level officials angry, but later intelligence appeared to show that bin Laden had left his quarters.
“The principals’ wariness about ordering a strike appears to have been vindicated: Bin Laden left his room unexpectedly, and if a strike had been ordered he would not have been hit,” the commission wrote.
U.S. officials again considered a missile strike against bin Laden in May 1999 — but, as was the case months before, they held back from striking, wary of conflicting intelligence reports. That skepticism may have been bolstered by the CIA’s accidental bombing on the Chinese embassy in Belgrade during the NATO war against Serbia, the commission said.
“This episode may have made officials more cautious than might otherwise have been the case,” the commission’s report stated.
From May 1999 until September 2001, authorities did not again actively consider a missile strike against Bin Laden.
Bin Laden was eventually killed in a 2011 raid by U.S. Special Forces in Pakistan.”
“From the Washington Examiner: When he wasn’t busy helping create a $127 billion mess for taxpayers to clean up, former Fannie Mae Chief Executive Officer Franklin Raines, two of his top underlings and select individuals in the “green” movement were inventing a patented system to trade residential carbon credits.
Patent No. 6904336 was approved by the U.S. Patent and Trade Office on Nov. 7, 2006 — the day after Democrats took control of Congress. Former Sen. John Sununu, R-N.H., criticized the award at the time, pointing out that it had “nothing to do with Fannie Mae’s charter, nothing to do with making mortgages more affordable.”
It wasn’t about mortgages. It was about greenbacks. The patent, which Fannie Mae confirmed it still owns with Cantor Fitzgerald subsidiary CO2e.com, gives the mortgage giant a lock on the fledgling carbon trading market, thus also giving it a major financial stake in the success of cap-and-trade legislation.
Besides Raines, the other “inventors” are:
* Former Fannie Vice President and Deputy General Counsel G. Scott Lesmes, who provided legal advice on Fannie Mae’s debt and equity offerings;
* Former Fannie Vice President Robert Sahadi, who now runs GreenSpace Investment Financial Services out of his 5,002-square-foot Clarksburg home;
* 2008 Barack Obama fundraiser Kenneth Berlin, an environmental law partner at Skadden Arps;
* Michelle Desiderio, director of the National Green Building Certification program, which trains “green” monitors;
* Former Cantor Fitzgerald employee Elizabeth Arner Cavey, wife of Democratic donor Brian Cavey of the Stanton Park Group, which received $200,000 last year to lobby on climate change legislation; and
* Jane Bartels, widow of former CO2e.com CEO Carlton Bartels. Three weeks before Carlton Bartels was killed in the Sept. 11 attacks, he filed for another patent on the software used in 2003 to set up the Chicago Climate Exchange.
The patent, which covers both the “cap” and “trade” parts of Obama’s top domestic energy initiation, gives Fannie Mae proprietary control over an automated trading system that pools and sells credits for hard-to-quantify residential carbon reduction efforts (such as solar panels and high-efficiency appliances) to companies and utilities that don’t meet emission reduction targets. Depending on where the Environmental Protection Agency sets arbitrary CO2 standards that could be every company in America.
The patent summary describes how carbon “and other pollutants yet to be determined” would be “combined into a single emissions pool” and traded — just as Fannie’s toxic portfolio of subprime mortgages were.
“Fannie Mae earns no money on this patent,” communications director Amy Bonitatibus told the Washington Examiner. “We can’t conjecture as to the cap-and-trade legislation”(#2)
Barrack Obama, Board Member of the Joyce Foundation which funded the formation of the CCX.
Obama’s top Advisor, Valerie Jarrett has remained on the board.
Al Gore, GIM and Goldman Sachs: Al Gore’s Generation InvestmentManagement (GIM) purchased a stake in CCX as the fifth largest shareholder. Other founders are David Blood (former Goldman executive), Mark Ferguson (Goldman) and Peter Harris (Goldman) to name a few.”
Franklin Raines, the busted Fannie Mae CEO acquired the Carbon trading patent with taxpayer dollars
Goldman Sachs owns ten percent of the CCX and its 10 Trillion a year potential. (CCX is 10% owned by Goldman Sachs (GS) and 10% owned by Generation Investment Management (GIM).) Gore, Goldman, and Cap and Trade – a Tangled Web of Corruption” (#4)
Obama was still a professor at the University of Chicago Law School teaching constitutional law during the funding for CCX. His law license became inactive a year later in 2002.
The CCX is a den of cronyism. The largest shareholder in the Exchange is Goldman Sachs. Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley is its honorary chairman. The Joyce Foundation, which funded the Exchange, also funded money for John Ayers’ Chicago School Initiatives. John is the brother of William Ayers.
Even as global warming is being exposed as a hoax, Obama is pressing the increasingly controversial cap-and-trade tax through Congress.
Obama was never the character he created for himself in the fairy-tale version in “Dreams of My Father”. He’s the agent of Change and Hope for cohorts making money down at the Chicago Climate Exchange.” (#5)
An article that appeared in FrontPage about a year ago, noted that “CCX’s members include Ford, DuPont, Dow Corning and the states of Illinois and New Mexico. CCX also owns 50 percent of the European Climate Exchange (ECX), which features such members as Shell,British Petroleum (BP), Barclays and Goldman Sachs.” The administration of George W. Bush is front and center when this False Flag event happened on their watch. Barack Obama, the Chicago Climate Exchange, the Joyce Foundation, George Soros, Maurice Strong, Edmund de Rothschild, the Federal Reserve, Goldman Sachs, Henry Paulson, Fannie Mae, and many others are long overdue for sworn testimony.(#6)

“Harrah’s at Trump Plaza opened on May 14, 1984, as a joint venture between the Trump Organization and Holiday Inn subsidiary Harrah‘s. Trump built the complex and it was managed by Harrah’s and contained 614 rooms, seven restaurants, a health club, a 750-seat showroom and a 60,000 sq.ft. casino all on a narrow 2.6-acre plot of land next to Caesars Atlantic City. Within five months, the Harrah’s name was removed from the casino and it became known only as Trump Plaza Part of the reason for this is that Harrah’s was commonly associated and attracted low-rolling gamblers, but Trump had built 85 high-roller suites, which were rarely used. Revenue for the seven months it was open in 1984 the casino was placed seventh out of the ten casinos operating in the city at the time, which led to Trump taking over the entire casino from Harrah’s. In 1989, the East Tower of the complex was opened, expanding the resort to a total of 906 rooms. The East Tower is a former Holiday Inn constructed in the 1960s, but closed after gambling was approved in 1976 with the intention of becoming the Penthouse Hotel and Casino. Trump later purchased the unfinished casino project, demolished the shell that was to become the casino, renovated the tower and covered its brick facade in white stucco to match the rest of the casino.
Trump Plaza hosted the Wrestlemania IV and Wrestlemania V events in 1988 and 1989 respectively. Although the World Wrestling Federation billed the events as being held at the Trump Plaza and Casino, in reality Trump was only the sponsor of both events, which were in fact held at the nearby Atlantic City Convention Hall.
The complex was at the center of a major eminent domain court case in the mid-1990s, when Trump Enterprises sought to obtain the property of Vera Coking, a retired homeowner whose house was adjacent to Trump Plaza.In Coking vs. C.R.D.A., Donald Trump, and Trump Plaza, Coking was victorious, and plans to build a limousine parking lot on her property were thwarted. Coking was represented Pro bono, by Institute for Justice (IJ) 
On May 24, 2011, Trump Entertainment Resorts announced that a decision would be made within two months to either sell the casino or to renovate and expand it, possibly with a joint venture partner. In February 2013, the company proposed to sell the property for $20 million to the Meruelo Group, a California-based company whose businesses include the Grand Sierra Resort in Reno. Meruelo planned to make significant investments in the property and rename it. In April 2013, the deal was put on hold when Trump Entertainment was unable to obtain a release of its mortgage. Carl Icahn, senior lender for the mortgage, declined to approve the sale for the proposed price.”
Demolitions provide a rapid means to clear and reduce impediments to the free movement and maneuver of friendly forces. As technology progresses to allow more explosive power to be packed into smaller, lighter, more effective packages, the opportunities to take advantage of the utility of these improved munitions have increased. A number of programs being pursued will provide significant improvements in capability. Demolitions also provide an ability to rapidly create obstacles to assist friendly forces in denying assets to the enemy and to obstruct enemy mobility.
Examples of Demolitions Being Developed and/or Fielded by Picatinny
The Fighting Position Excavator (FPE) is one of several fighting position initiatives undertaken by the Soldier Enhancement Program. Its objective is to loosen the soil of a specific area designated for a “foxhole” on the battlefield, thus greatly reducing the physical effort and time it takes to create a two-man fighting position.
The Modern Demolition Initiator (MDI) is a suite of initiating components used to activate all standard military demolitions and explosives. It consists of non-electric blasting cap assemblies with an integral time delay interior, a time fuse or shock tube, and a “J” hook that can be attached to a detonating cord. The suite will replace electric and non-electric firing systems for conventional forces while maintaining compatibility with existing Army systems. MDI makes it safer, quicker, and easier for soldiers to successfully complete demolition missions.
The Remote Activation Munition System (RAMS) is a secure, radio-controlled system designed to remotely control demolition charges. Initially developed for use by Special Operations Forces for a wide range of operations, RAMS gives the user a remote control capability to destroy, delay and disrupt an enemy far forward of the Forward Line of Own Troops (FLOT) while avoiding direct enemy contact. A similar version or RAMS is used by the U.S. Marine Corps and Army Explosive Ordnance Detachments (EOD).
Picatinny developed a unique kit, the Special Operations Forces Demolition Kit (SOFDK), to meet requirements of the U.S. Army Special Operations Command, Special Operations Forces in 1997. The kit contains a variety of inert and plastic items that, when field loaded, provide the user with charges to use against numerous targets and mission scenarios. It combines state-of-the-art components with methods to accomplish the mission safely, efficiently and more effectively. The soldier is able to remotely acquire the target from a safe standoff distance of up to 50 meters and defeat it using fewer explosives than conventional demolition operations. Lighter loads and reduced time-on-target allow the operator the flexibility of constructing the smallest, lightest charge feasible with the maximum precision for numerous types of targets and mission scenarios.
The Selectable Lightweight Attack Munition (SLAM) is an antimaterial and anti- vehicular handheld devise used to destroy enemy vehicles, parked aircraft, ammunition sites, storage facilities and other small targets without direct contact with the enemy. SLAM’s multiple fuzing modes increase its effectiveness against hard-and soft-armored vehicles, and other targets.
The Penetration Augmented Munition (PAM) is a lightweight, man portable demolitions device also developed for Special Operation Forces. The compact device is 33 inches long and weighs approximately 35 pounds. It can be emplaced by a single person to defeat large reinforced concrete structures. The PAM can be carried in a rucksack or strapped to load-bearing equipment without interfering with the solder’s ability to walk, climb or rappel. It can be initiated by any standard military detonation device.
The Time Delay Firing Device (TDFD) is used by Special Operations Forces and other units to initiate charges placed on high-value targets such as bridges, tunnels and ammunition storage depots, with set times, which allow the soldier to safety depart from hostile areas. It is capable of being set in the field for time delays ranging from five minutes to 30 days and is typically used behind enemy lines to destroy and disrupt their forces and efforts. The TDFD is capable of initiating a standard military blasting cap.
“The Sympathetic Detonator-Timer (SYDET) is a time delay device that allows for the simultaneous detonation of multiple charges without a physical connection. It was designed to enhance the performance of Special Operations Forces operating in strike and engagement missions. SYDET is small and easy to carry, initiates detonation on recognition of an acoustic stimulus caused by the detonation of a nearby pre-determined explosive charge and can be set to self-destruct using a digital liquid crystal display. If the unit does not respond to a pre-selected acoustic signature prior to the expiration of shut down time, it becomes a non-functional dud.”

“Serco Combined Resilience Exercising
Types of Exercise Workshop Exercises These are structured discussion events where participants can explore issues in a less pressurised 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 Gold Standard system is flexible to allow the tempo and intensity to be adjusted to ensure maximum training benefit, or to fully test and evaluate the most important aspects of a plan. Such exercises also test information flow, communications, equipment, procedures, decision making and coordination.
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 and advance computer simulation. 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.

(9:00 a.m.-9:37 a.m.) September 11, 2001: Chief of Naval Operations Continues with Budget Meeting while US Is Under Attack
The Chief of Naval Operations Admiral Vern Clark, the Navy’s top officer, is in his office on the fourth floor of the Pentagon for a budget meeting. Although it is clear after the second WTC tower is hit that the US is under attack, Clark apparently does nothing in response, and no attempt is made to evacuate him from the Pentagon. Reportedly, when the Pentagon is hit at 9:37, he is “receiving a budget briefing.” It is only then that a member of his staff enters his office and tells him, “You’ve got to evacuate.” Clark will then head to the Pentagon’s National Military Command Center (NMCC), where he meets with other senior Department of Defense leaders, and decides to [surrender and] re-establish the Navy’s command center in another secure location in Washington, DC (see After 9:37 a.m. September 11, 2001). Clark later reflects, “There has never been an experience like this in my lifetime. We were thinking about the immediate protection of the United States of America.” [SEA POWER, 1/2002; NATIONAL PUBLIC RADIO, 6/14/2007]

(After 9:37 a.m.) September 11, 2001: Aircraft Carriers Called to Defend US; Uncertainty Over When This Happens
The USS George Washington. [Source: Summer Anderson / Department of Defense]After the attack on the Pentagon, Navy ships and aircraft squadrons that are stationed, or at sea, along the coast of the United States are, reportedly, “rapidly pressed into action” to defend the country. Chief of Naval Operations Admiral Vern Clark is evacuated from his office in the Pentagon after the building is hit, and soon relocates to the Navy’s Antiterrorist Alert Center in southeast Washington, DC, where a backup Navy command center is being established (see After 9:37 a.m. September 11, 2001). Clark later explains, “We had carriers at sea. I talked to Admiral Natter [Adm. Robert J. Natter, commander in chief, US Atlantic Fleet] and Admiral Fargo [Adm. Thomas B. Fargo, commander in chief, US Pacific Fleet] about immediate loadouts [of weapons and armed aircraft] and the positioning of our air defense cruisers. Fundamentally, those pieces were in place almost immediately and integrated into the interagency process and with the FAA [Federal Aviation Administration].” The aircraft carrier USS George Washington is currently at sea conducting training exercises. It is dispatched to New York, “following the recovery of armed F-14 Tomcats and F/A-18 Hornets from Naval Air Station Oceana,” in Virginia Beach, Virginia. According to Sea Power magazine, another aircraft carrier—the USS John F. Kennedy—that is departing Mayport, Florida, is ordered to patrol the waters off Hampton Roads, Virginia, “to protect the Navy’s vast shore complex in Norfolk.” [ASSOCIATED PRESS, 9/12/2001; SEA POWER, 1/2002; NOTRE DAME MAGAZINE, 4/2007] The John F. Kennedy has nearly a full air wing of 75 fighter, attack, and reconnaissance planes aboard it, while the George Washington has only a limited number of aircraft on board. [VIRGINIAN-PILOT, 9/12/2001] Admiral Natter orders two amphibious ships—the USS Bataan and the USS Shreveport—to proceed to North Carolina, to pick up Marines from Camp Lejeune, in case additional support is needed in New York. “Within three hours, an undisclosed number of Aegis guided-missile cruisers and destroyers also were underway, their magazines loaded with Standard 2 surface-to-air missiles. Positioned off New York and Norfolk, and along the Gulf Coast, they provided robust early-warning and air-defense capabilities to help ensure against follow-on terrorist attacks.” Vern Clark later recalls that, after the Pentagon attack, “We were thinking about the immediate protection of the United States of America.” [SEA POWER, 1/2002] Yet, according to CNN, it is not until 1:44 p.m. that the Pentagon announces that five warships and two aircraft carriers—the USS George Washington and the USS John F. Kennedy—are to depart the Naval Station in Norfolk, Virginia, so as to protect the East Coast (see 1:44 p.m. September 11, 2001). [CNN, 9/12/2001] And, according to some reports, the Navy only dispatches missile destroyers toward New York and Washington at 2:51 p.m. [WASHINGTON POST, 9/12/2001; FOX NEWS, 9/13/2001; ASSOCIATED PRESS, 9/11/2006]

“The all-weather E-2 Hawkeye airborne early warning and battle management aircraft has served as the “eyes” of the U.S. Navy fleet for more than 30 years, and the E-2C Hawkeye 2000 possesses the most advanced AEW&BM capabilities in service today. Continuous modifications and upgrades have kept the aircraft’s mission systems current with the evolving operational environment. The next generation E-2D Advanced Hawkeye, the key airborne enabler of the US Navy’s FORCEnet began test flights in 2007.
Hawkeye 2000 is the fifth generation production E-2C Hawkeye and incorporates significant enhancements in data management, system throughput, operator interfaces, connectivity, and situational awareness to support the Navy’s evolving Theater Air and Missile Defense mission. This Hawkeye capitalizes on the previous version Group II baseline fully integrated system, which includes the AN/APS-145 radar system, improved identification friend/foe (IFF) system, the Joint Tactical Information Distribution System (JTIDS), a global positioning system (GPS) and the Carrier Aircraft Inertial Navigational System (CAINS) II navigation system.”
“Charles de Gaulle is the flagship of the French Navy (Marine Nationale) and the largest western European warship currently in commission. She is the tenth French aircraft carrier, the first French nuclear-powered surface vessel, and the first and so far only nuclear-powered carrier completed outside of the United States Navy. She is named after French statesman and general Charles de Gaulle.
The ship carries a complement of Dassault-Breguet Super Étendard, Dassault Rafale M and E‑2C Hawkeye aircraft, EC725 Caracal and AS532 Cougar helicopter for combat search and rescue, as well as modern electronics and Astermissiles. She is a CATOBAR-type carrier that uses two 75 m C13‑3 steam catapults of a shorter version of the catapult system installed on the U.S. Nimitz-class aircraft carriers, one catapult at the bow and one across the front of the landing area. Thanks to her characteristics, Charles de Gaulle is the only non-American carrier-vessel in the world able to operate American aircraft such as the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet  or C-2 Greyhound, which operate from American carrier-vessels.
In 1993, it was alleged by The Guardian that a group of engineers inspecting the vessel during her construction were British Secret Intelligence Service (MI6) operatives [allegedly deployed by the Auld Alliance booster David Cameron to integrate the Nine Eyes surveillance network with the French Force de Frappe], believed to have been learning the method of shielding the nuclear reactors, amongst other technical details. However, the newspaper published a denial by both the British government and the Direction de la surveillance du territoire (DST) (in English: Directorate of Territorial Surveillance) that there had been any incident.”
“The Northrop Grumman E-2 Hawkeye is an American all-weather, carrier-capable tactical airborne early warning (AEW) aircraft. This twin-turboprop aircraft was designed and developed during the late 1950s and early 1960s by the Grumman Aircraft Company for the United States Navy as a replacement for the earlier, radial piston-engined E-1 Tracer, which was rapidly becoming obsolete. The aircraft’s performance has been upgraded with the E-2B, and E-2C versions, where most of the changes were made to the radar and radio communications due to advances in electronic integrated circuits and other electronics. The fourth version of the Hawkeye is the E-2D, which first flew in 2007. The E-2 was the first aircraft designed specifically for its role, as opposed to a modification of an existing airframe, such as the Boeing E-3 Sentry. Variants of the Hawkeye have been in continuous production since 1960, giving it the longest production run of any carrier-based aircraft.
The E-2 also received the nickname “Super Fudd” because it replaced the E-1 Tracer “Willy Fudd”. In recent decades, the E-2 has been commonly referred to as the “Hummer” because of the distinctive sounds of its turboprop engines, quite unlike that of turbojet and turbofan jet engines. In addition to U.S. Navy service, smaller numbers of E-2s have been sold to the armed forces of Egypt, France, Israel, Japan, Mexico, Singapore and Taiwan.”
“Serco farewell to NPL after 19 years of innovation [outsourced by David Cameron at Treasury] … 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:
· The beneficial impact of NPL’s work to the economy is estimated at £2Bn pa.
· In 2012, NPL’s role in building the first maser to operate at room temperature was nominated by Physics World as one of the top ten breakthroughs of the year (CERN topped the list for their discovery of a Higgs-like particle).
· NPL was instrumental in gaining a 50% increase in European funding for the EMPIR programme, with a total of €600m.
· 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 [bullshit] over the next decade.

“Serco Wants Whistleblower’s Navy Contract FCA Suit Canned
By Daniel Wilson
Law360, Washington (April 22, 2014, 6:12 PM ET) — Serco Inc. on Monday urged a California federal court to dismiss a former employee’s whistleblower suit accusing it of falsely billing the U.S. Navy on contracts for a “virtual border” project, saying its billing was accurate and complied with the agreed contract terms.
While relator Darryn Kelly argues that Serco’s invoices submitted to the Navy for work on its Advanced Wireless Systems project had violated the False Claims Act, he had failed to articulate how or why, or show that the company had retaliated against him for the suit, it argued, asking for summary judgment.
“After months of extensive discovery, relator has failed to garner any evidence to support a claim of false or fraudulent conduct by Serco,” the company said. “There is no evidence that Serco defrauded the government or did anything improper, including retaliating against relator.”
Serco had been awarded a project management subcontract for the AWS project by the Navy’s Space and Naval Warfare Systems unit, which was acting essentially as the general contractor for the project under a $52 million interagency equipment and materials deal with the lead agency, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, according to the company.
While contracts with the U.S. Department of Defense often incorporate the earned value management system from the Federal Acquisition Regulation and the DOD FAR Supplement, requiring specific detailed, itemized cost reporting, the delivery orders awarded to Serco by the Navy for the AWS project did not, it claimed.
Itemizing labor and material costs for the thousands of different tasks needed for the project — the installation and upgrade of cell tower installations along the U.S.-Mexico border in order to support a “virtual border” using electronic equipment — would have been both unfeasible and expensive, Serco said.
As such, Serco and the Navy had mutually agreed that they would use Serco’s tracking system, with the company’s accounting department invoicing the Navy monthly for aggregate labor, material and other costs under a single charge code, meaning it had not violated the FAR or DFARS as Kelly had claimed, it argued.
Nor had Kelly been able to substantiate his claims that those invoices — the figures for which had been previously certified as true by the relevant company departments or employees — had included false billing, such as claims for work done by Serco employees outside of the AWS project, claims for non-existent work, or overbilling for partial days of work, according to the company.
Further, the available evidence clearly shows that Kelly — employed by Serco between November 2009 and May 2011 as a data analyst — was laid off from his position not as retaliation for protected conduct, but because the function of the job was first reduced, then eliminated by the government itself, with his direct supervisor and that employee’s supervisor unaware of Kelly’s concerns at the time, Serco said.
Kelly sued his former employer, a Reston, Va.-based professional, technology and management services company — and a unit of British government and public services provider Serco Group PLC — in December 2011. The case was unsealed in August 2012 after the federal government declined to intervene.
Counsel for Kelly didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment late Tuesday.
Kelly is represented by Derek J. Emge of Emge & Associates and Wayne T. Lamprey of Goodin Macbridge Squeri Day & Lamprey LLP.
Serco is represented by Francis J. Burke of Foley & Lardner LLP and Daniel P. Wierzba of Seyfarth Shaw LLP.
The case is U.S. ex rel. Kelly v. Serco Inc. et al., case number 3:11-cv-02975, in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California.

The following ethnic groups are classified as eligible: Black Americans; Hispanic Americans; Native Americans (American Indians, Eskimos, Aleuts, or Native Hawaiians); Asian Pacific Americans (persons with origins from Burma, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Brunei, Japan [Mineta interned in WWII], China (including Hong Kong), Taiwan, Laos, Cambodia (Kampuchea), Vietnam, Korea, The Philippines, U.S. Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands (Republic of Palau), Republic of the Marshall Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, Samoa, Macao, Fiji, Tonga, Kiribati, Tuvalu, or Nauru); Subcontinent Asian Americans (persons with origins from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Bhutan, the Maldives Islands or Nepal). In 2011, the SBA, along with the FBI and the IRS, uncovered a massive scheme to defraud this program. Civilian employees of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, working in concert with an employee of Alaska Native Corporation Eyak Technology LLC allegedly submitted fraudulent bills to the program, totaling over 20 million dollars, and kept the money for their own use. It also alleged that the group planned to steer a further 780 million dollars towards their favored contractor.”
