Kelly 116: Serco’s Marine Corps Backdoor Generals, Wilbur’s 8(a) Bridge of Demon Greeks, CAI Death Pool Mandalay
General John F. Kelly
White House Chief of Staff
Washington, D.C. 20528
Open letter from the Cloud Centric Crime Scene Investigators of Abel Danger
October 19, 2017
Dear General Kelly:
Please accept Brief 116 from Field McConnell – the United States Marine Corps whistle-blower and Global Operations Director of Abel Danger (AD) – on Serco‘s Marine Corps Digital Fires Instructors who apparently equipped HP’s Navy / Marine Corps Intranet (NMCI) with the backdoor allegedly used by General James L. Jones (Ret.) and the late General Alexander Haig to launch man-in-the-middle attacks on the United States National Command Authority during the Global Guardian war games of 10-12 September 2001.
McConnell alleges that Wilbur Ross, Serco‘s investment banker at N M Rothschild & Sons Ltd, hired the late Stephen Paddock, a former auditor of the U.S. Defense Contract Audit Agency, to set up hotel-based death pools where rogue generals could time and mentor 8(a) company attacks on the likes of Boeing. Raytheon, Northrop Grumman and Lockheed Martin through the federal bridge certification authority and extort silence from pedophile leaders of the Greek Life community with Serco‘s Demon face recognition software embedded in NMCI.
McConnell alleges that Ross’s associates in the CAI (CIA?) Private Equity Group set up a death pool at the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino to camouflage the murder of prospective whistle-blower Stephen Paddock during the mass killings at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival in Las Vegas on October 1, 2017 and protect the identities of the generals, bankers and elite pedophiles who play a Global Guardian role with We the People.
Call Field McConnell to discuss Serco‘s alleged 8(a) digital fires attack on the Mandalay Bay Hotel of October 1st when Gen. James L. Jones (Ret.); 32nd Commandant of the Marine Corps; 22nd National Security Advisor; 13th Commander U.S. European Command and 14th Supreme Allied Commander, Europe, with a BS from Georgetown University and a PhD from Georgetown College, appears to have directed Global Guardian LLC’s services for “GPS based personnel and asset tracking to clients traveling globally, and supports these travelers with dedicated in-country emergency response teams in over 60 countries. Global Guardian’s tracking system allows its 24-hour Operations Center staff to precisely locate travelers and direct security and medical response assets as needed in the event of emergencies.”

A backdoor is a method, often secret, of bypassing normal authentication or encryption in a computer system, a product, or an embedded device (e.g. a home router), or its embodiment, e.g. as part of a cryptosystem, an algorithm, a chipset, or a “homunculus computer” (such as that as found in Intel’s AMT technology). Backdoors are often used for securing remote access to a computer, or obtaining access to plaintext in cryptographic systems.
A backdoor may take the form of a hidden part of a program one uses, a separate program (e.g. Back Orificemay subvert the system through a rootkit), or code in the firmware of ones hardware or parts of ones operating system such as Microsoft Windows. Although normally surreptitiously installed, in some cases backdoors are deliberate and widely known. These kinds of backdoors might have “legitimate” uses such as providing the manufacturer with a way to restore user passwords.
Default passwords (or other default credentials) can function as backdoors if they are not changed by the user. Some debugging features can also act as backdoors if they are not removed in the release version.
In 1993 the United States government attempted to deploy an encryption system, the Clipper chip, with an explicit backdoor for law enforcement and national security access. The chip was unsuccessful internationally and in business.”
“THE MOST RELIABLE OPERATIONS TEAM IN THE VIDEO MONITORING INDUSTRY
Sentry is an operating division of Global Guardian, an established provider of integrated global security solutions for organizations, individuals, and families. Global Guardian’s management team is comprised of veterans and federal law enforcement personnel, including former members of the US Army Special Forces, Delta Force, U.S. Secret Service Special Operations Division, and FBI, representing a level of operational security experience unmatched in the video monitoring industry.
Global Guardian’s 24-hour Operations Center near Washington, D.C. is staffed at all times by highly trained security experts, intelligence analysts and surveillance professionals. This team supports Global Guardian clients in over 65 countries, providing global personnel tracking, executive protection services, and emergency response to a wide range of potential client emergencies, including terrorist attacks, natural disasters and medical emergencies. Sentry leverages this same team to provide a level of responsiveness and reliability that is superior to all other video monitoring companies.
Within seconds of identifying intruders or unauthorized activity at a client facility, Sentry’s Operations Team can remotely give intruders verbal commands through loudspeakers, initiate an audible alarm with strobe lights, contact designated client representatives or escalate the situation to local police authorities. By using the video feed to verify the alarm, Global Guardian ensures that police authorities will prioritize their response over standard, unverified burglar alarms. By leveraging the security expertise of Global Guardian’s leadership, its 24-hour Operations Center, and its highly trained team, Sentry provides the most reliable video monitoring solution available in the market today.
WORLD-CLASS 24-HOUR OPERATIONS CENTER
Global Guardian Sentry’s team of Surveillance Professionals eliminates the need for on-site security guards and guarantees that your business or home will be monitored at all times and protected against break-ins, theft or unauthorized activity. Sentry’s Operations Center is manned at all times, and never calls in sick. Your site will be monitored day and night, in good weather and in bad, no matter what.
A COST EFFICIENT SECURITY SOLUTION
Full-time, on-site guards are expensive. Burglar alarms provide no proactive security and because they are unverified and highly prone to false alarms, often result in delayed police response times. Sentry solves both of these problems. Its solution is highly cost effective when compared to guard services, and unlike traditional alarms, ensures priority police response when needed through proactive monitoring and real-time verification.”

“Rothschild ‘spied as the Fifth Man’
By DAVID LEITCH
Saturday 22 October 1994 23:02 BST
The Independent Online
THE LATE Lord Rothschild, scientist, think-tank head, first- class cricketer, bomb-disposal expert and MI5 agent, was a super-spy for the Russians, according to a forthcoming book.
The Fifth Man, by the Australian author Roland Perry, claims to prove that Victor Rothschild stole ‘all major UK/US weapons developments in the Second World War’, including biological warfare, the atomic bomb and radar.
Specifically, he alleges that Rothschild, not Klaus Fuchs, or, as is generally believed, the civil servant John Cairncross, first alerted Stalin to Allied plans to build an atom bomb using plutonium 235.
Perry also claims that Rothschild, who died in 1990, was involved ‘in so many aspects of spying that he seemed like a super-agent, sabotaging every Western intelligence initiative for 20 years after the war’.
The evidence offered is largely derived from three days of interviews in Moscow with seven retired KGB officers, some identified only by initials.
The most important was Yuri Ivanovitch Modin, controller of the Cambridge spies, and orchestrator of the Burgess/Maclean defection.
But speaking from Moscow late last week, an ‘astonished’ Modin denied Perry’s version comprehensively. Yes, there had been interviews supposedly as the basis of a documentary film about former KGB officers. But no, he had never hinted, nor did he believe, that Rothschild was the fifth man, or any kind of Soviet agent.
‘We knew Rothschild was close to (Guy) Burgess and (Anthony) Blunt (later unveiled as the ‘fourth man’ in the Burgess and Donald Maclean affair).
Because he was in MI5 they learned things from him. This doesn’t make him the fifth man, and he wasn’t,’ he said.
One explanation may be confusion. Perry attributes to the brilliant Rothschild a number of espionage coups which Modin knows from archives and personal contact were the work of the unassuming Cairncross. Modin provides corroborating detail in his own book, My Five Cambridge Friends, to be published by Hodder/Headline on 27 October.
So grateful were the KGB for Cairncross’s early atom secrets, gleaned while secretary to the wartime scientific chief, Lord Hankey, that the Soviet ambassador presented him with the Order of the Red Banner at a secret ceremony in London in 1944. The insignia, in a velvet- lined case, were then taken back to the embassy.
Even Perry does not suggest that ‘Victor’, as everyone called him, was offered any such dubious honour to add to the British mention in dispatches and US awards he received for dangerous war work. A man who had proved his courage racing cars and batting against the fast bowler Harold Larwood, he became the top expert on bomb disposal. He was also responsible for the personal security of his friend Winston Churchill, testing, and sometimes tasting, the Prime Minister’s gifts of exotic food and drink.
Rothschild survived the war and the Burgess/Maclean defection to become the acknowledged ‘grand old man of espionage’ consulted by successive governments. However, rumours based on his close association with Burgess, Maclean and Kim Philby, all of whom were habitués of his wartime house, surfaced again in the 1980s when he became embroiled in the Peter Wright Spycatcher affair.
In 1986 Rothschild wrote a public letter avowing his innocence, and soon after Mrs Thatcher issued a famously terse comment that ‘we have no evidence he was ever a Soviet agent’.
As a clearance it was less than fulsome, but when he died in 1990 the Prime Minister attended his memorial.
A clue to her coolness emerged from the interviews of Kim Philby by the writer Phillip Knightley in Moscow. Philby believed that leaving MI5 in 1947, Rothschild had seized or copied all the six-by-four file- cards listing Soviet agents in Europe and elsewhere. These, Philby believed, were used by Mossad, the security service of the fledgling state of Israel, whose cause Rothschild’s family had championed from the 19th century.
Mrs Thatcher may have taken the view that his conflict of loyalties was not between Whitehall and the Lubyanka, but his country of birth and his family’s Zionist dreams. In his lifetime inquiries, let alone speculation about his exotic career as scientist and spymaster, were inhibited by his lawyer, the redoubtable Lord Goodman. But as William Armstrong of Sidgwick & Jackson, the book’s publisher, said, ‘dead men can’t sue for libel’.
Rothschild’s ghost and his surviving family may well wish that death did not inhibit libel actions, all the more so as ‘Rothschild family members’ are cited in the book describing his low spirits in the years before his death.
But their lawyers, Freshfields, said that in the circumstances their reaction would be ‘a dignified silence’.”
“In 1967 Paddock completed his studies at Richard E. Byrd Middle School, then graduated from John H. Francis Polytechnic High School in 1971, and from California State University, Northridge in 1977, with a degree in business administration. Paddock worked for the federal government from about 1975 to 1985. He was a letter carrier for the U.S. Postal Service from 1976 to 1978. After that, he worked for six years as an Internal Revenue Service agent until 1984. Then, he was a federal auditor for one year, in 1985, focusing on defense contractors. Towards the end of the 1980s, Paddock worked for three years as an internal auditor for a company that later merged to form Lockheed Martin.”
“From 1976 to 1985, Paddock worked federal government jobs: as a letter carrier for the Postal Service, an agent for the IRS and an auditor for U.S. government’s Defense Contract Audit Agency, according to the Office of Personnel Management.”
“The Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) is an agency of the United States Department of Defense under the direction of the Under Secretary of Defense (Comptroller). It was established in 1965 to perform all contract audits for the Department of Defense. Previously, the various branches of military service were responsible for their own contract audits.
The DCAA’s duties include financial and accounting advisory services for the Department of Defense in connection with negotiation, administration and settlement of contracts and subcontracts.
… A report released by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) on July 23, 2008 alleged that DCAA managers threatened a senior auditor with personnel action if he did not remove negative findings from a report criticizing a large federal contractor. The report found a too-cozy relationship between management at the DCAA and some of the contractors they are assigned to audit, including Boeing. GAO also said auditors who complied with the investigation were subject to harassment and intimidation from their supervisors.”
The DCAA responded on July 25 that it had asked the US Department of Defense’s (DoD) Inspector General (IG) office to investigate the GAO’s claims. “We take the GAO report very seriously,” said April Stephenson, DCAA’s director. US Senator Claire McCaskill said GAO may have uncovered the “biggest auditing scandal in the history of this town,” and asked the DoD to immediately fire the supervisors cited in the report.”

“Serco‘s Office of Partner Relations (OPR) helps facilitate our aggressive small business utilization and growth strategies. Through the OPR, Serco mentors four local small businesses under formal Mentor Protégé Agreements: Three sponsored by DHS (Base One Technologies, TSymmetry, Inc., and HeiTech Services, Inc.,) and the fourth sponsored by GSA (DKW Communications, Inc.). Serco and HeiTech Services were awarded the 2007 DHS Mentor Protégé Team Award for exceeding our mentoring goals.”
Since 1991, the Department of Defense (DoD) Mentor-Protégé Program (MPP) has offered substantial assistance to small disadvantaged businesses. Helping them to expand the overall base of their marketplace participation has produced more jobs and increased national income.
ABOUT THIS PROGRAM
The DoD Mentor-Protégé Program assists small businesses (protégés) successfully compete for prime contract and subcontract awards by partnering with large companies (mentors) under individual, project-based agreements.
Traditionally, these partnerships have delivered a variety of products and services specialized in: environmental remediation, engineering services, information technology, manufacturing, telecommunications, and health care. Recently, new Mentor-Protégé agreements have focused on corrosion engineering, information assurance, robotics, circuit board and metal component manufacturing. The DoD hopes that future Agreements will focus on new technology areas such as radio frequency identification devices and enhanced security assurance.
Many Mentor firms have made the program an integral part of their sourcing plans; while the protégé firms have used their involvement in the program to develop much needed business and technical capabilities to diversify their customer base. Our protégé participants have established long-term business relationships with providers of government and commercial goods and services.
Successful mentor-protégé agreements provide a winning relationship for the protégé, the mentor, and the DoD.”
“AOL (formerly a company known as AOL Inc., originally known as America Online, and stylized as Aol) is a web portal and online service provider based in New York. It is a brand marketed by Oath, a subsidiary of Verizon Communications. AOL was one of the early pioneers of the Internet in the mid-1990s, and the most recognized brand on the web in the U.S. It originally provided a dial-up service to millions of Americans, as well as providing a web portal, e-mail, instant messaging and later a web browser following its purchase of Netscape. At the height of its popularity, it purchased the media conglomerate Time Warner in the largest merger in U.S. history. AOL rapidly declined thereafter, partly due to the decline of dial-up to broadband. AOL was eventually spun off from Time Warner in 2009, with Tim Armstrong appointed the new CEO. Under his leadership, the company invested in media brands and advertising technologies. On June 23, 2015, AOL was acquired by Verizon Communications for $4.4 billion. In the following months, AOL also made a deal with Microsoft and acquired several tech properties, including Millennial Media and Kanvas to bolster their mobile ad-tech capabilities.”
“CAI’s relationship with MDA dates back to the early 1990′s when, in 1994, CAI and MDA held discussions regarding a potential acquisition of MDA by CAI. However, in 1995, MDA was subsequently sold to US-based Orbital Sciences Corporation. Nevertheless, for years following the sale of MDA to Orbital, CAI continued to explore potential investment opportunities with MDA, both as a potential partner and a prospective shareholder. In late 1999, Orbital began experiencing significant liquidity problems unrelated to MDA and was evaluating strategic alternatives to raise cash, including the sale of certain non-core assets, one of which was MDA. Due to CAI’s existing familiarity with MDA and its business, CAI became management’s preferred and exclusive partner to pursue and negotiate a transaction with Orbital that would satisfy Orbital’s very tight time constraints. Consequently, in December 1999, CAI and one of its limited partners together acquired a 33.3% equity position in MDA from Orbital.”

“Serco Combined Resilience Exercising
Types of Exercise Workshop Exercises These are structured discussion events where participants can explore issues in a less pressurized environment.
They are an ideal way of developing solutions, procedures and plans rather than the focus being on decision making. Table Top Exercises These involve a realistic scenario and will follow a time line, either in real-time or with time jumps to concentrate on the more important areas. The participants would be expected to be familiar with the plans and procedures that are being used although the exercise tempo and complexity can be adjusted to suit the current state of training and readiness. Simulation and media play can be used to support the exercise. Table-top exercises help develop teamwork and allow participants to gain a better understanding of their roles and that of other agencies and organisations.
Command/Control Post Exercises These are designed primarily to exercise the senior leadership and support staff in collective planning and decision making within a strategic grouping. Ideally such exercises would be run from the real command and control locations and using their communications and information systems. This could include a mix of locations and varying levels of technical simulation support. The GoldStandard system is flexible to allow the tempo and intensity to be adjusted to ensure maximum training benefit, or to fully test and evaluate the most important aspects of a plan. Such exercises also test information flow, communications, equipment, procedures, decision making and coordination.
Simulation and Media Support The method of delivering an exercise is flexible and will be designed with the client to meet their requirements with options ranging from simple paper-based delivery through to full use of their real communications systems [Red Switch Network and Hawkeye onion router surveillance aircraft] and advance computer simulation [In Trump’s death pool and war room suites]. In addition, media play can also be added in the form of news injects and the provision of experienced journalists and television crews to help test procedures and also assist in training key staff.

“Rothschild Investments 
In the late 1970s, Ross began his 24 year career at the New York City office of N M Rothschild & Sons, where he ran the bankruptcy-restructuring advisory practice.
Representation of investors in casinos owned by Donald Trump
In the 1980s, Donald Trump was in financial trouble because of his casinos in Atlantic City. His three casinos in Atlantic City were under foreclosure threat from lenders. Ross, who was then the Senior Managing Director of Rothschild Inc., represented investors in the casino. Along with Carl Icahn, Ross convinced bondholders to strike a deal with Trump that allowed Trump to keep control of the casinos.
Establishment of WL Ross & Co.
In the late 1990s, Ross started a $200 million fund at Rothschild to invest in distressed assets. As the U.S. bubble began to burst, he decided he wanted to invest more and advise less. In 2000, the 62-year-old banker raised $450 million to buy out the fund from Rothschild and make further investments in distressed assets. The new firm was named WL Ross & Co. Staff included four top managers who, along with Ross, make up the firm’s investment committee: David H. Storper, who runs trading; David L. Wax, a longtime workout specialist; Stephen J. Toy, an Asia expert; and Pamela K. Wilson, a J.P. Morgan & Co. veteran. WL Ross & Co. was acquired by Amvescap (now Invesco) in 2006.

“The National Crime Squad co-ordinated arrests of suspected paedophiles across 19 separate countries on 28 November using information supplied by Demon Internet.
The Internet service provider was approached by the National Crime Squad and agreed to allow officers to access its servers. This led to the recovery of data showing the activity of nearly 1,500 newsgroups during a two-week period.
From this data, officers established that almost 10,000 Internet Protocol (IP) addresses had accessed more than 30 of the Web sites carrying paedophilia. For operational reasons this number was whittled down to just over 400 addresses of those specifically distributing paedophiliac images.
The information was then distributed via Interpol to the countries identified with the suspects, and evidence packs on each of the targets were distributed to the relevant police forces
Detective Superintendent Peter Spindler, leading the investigation for the National Crime Squad, said: “With the assistance of Demon Internet and the support and guidance of the National High-Tech Crime Unit, we are able to show that those accessing these newsgroups did so regularly and with purpose.
“We also learnt, not surprisingly, that those abusing the Internet have learnt from recent police successes how best to protect their true identities,” he added.
The National Crime Squad and Serco, its IT partner, have developed facial mapping software that they hope to use to identify the abused children featured on the paedophiliac sites.”

“VANCOUVER, B.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–June 29, 1995–MACDONALD, DETTWILER (TSE,VSE:MDA) MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates, Ltd. announced that its data communications unit, The PSC Group, has reached an agreement with Northern Telecom Ltd. of Mississauga, Ont. Under the pact, PSC is providing certain services for a new Nortel security product called Entrust.
The PSC-Northern Telecom relationship is part of a new trend, called functional outsourcing, that is helping PSC to achieve rapid growth. Outsourcing allows independent consulting firms like PSC to provide training and other support for the customers of large multinational computer and communications companies.
Over the past two years, PSC has developed its first outsourcing relationship, with computer network equipment manufacturer Cisco Systems Inc. of San Jose, Calif. Under this relationship agreement, PSC has become a leading trainer for customers of Cisco around the world. Cisco itself is growing quickly. Its sales nearly doubled in 1994 to $1.2 billion (U.S.) and customer demand for training is very strong.
The pact with Northern Telecom is PSC’s second outsourcing relationship. Under this pact, PSC ensures that Entrust software meets the highest quality standards. In addition, PSC provides post-sales service to Entrust customers worldwide, including product installation, training and ongoing support.
PSC is currently negotiating several other outsourcing pacts, under which it would provide training for other major computer equipment manufacturers. An announcement regarding one of those pacts is anticipated soon.
For the fiscal year ended March 31, 1995, PSC received nearly $6 million of revenue from its Cisco outsourcing relationship. That represented about 5 percent of MacDonald Dettwiler’s total revenue of $110 million. With continued growth from Cisco, and with Northern Telecom and other relationships under negotiation, PSC expects its outsourcing revenue to approximately double during the current fiscal year.
With a staff of about 120, PSC specializes in consulting and training related mainly to computer networking. PSC helps customers design and implement networks so that computers can communicate faster and at less cost.
PSC’s training is conducted from offices in Toronto, Washington D.C., London and Sydney, Australia. In addition, PSC sends instructors and portable laboratories from city to city to provide courses at locations convenient to customers. PSC has the capacity to teach in English, French, Spanish, Russian and several other languages.
MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates provides technology-based solutions and services which address basic societal needs in earth observation, air navigation, defence applications and data communications markets.

They are called SERCO, and they run countries…
As well as thanking God for his success, CEO Chris Hyman is a Pentecostal Christian who has released a gospel album in America and fasts every Tuesday. Coincidentally he was in the World Trade Centre on 9/11 on the 47th floor addressing shareholders.”
