Kelly 136: Long-Range Serco’s 8(a) SOS Demons, CAI’s North Tower Paddock Junket, Wilbur’s Spot Fix Greeks
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
November 13, 2017
Dear General Kelly:
Please accept Brief 136 from Field McConnell – United States Marine Corps whistle-blower and Global Operations Director of Abel Danger (AD) – on Serco‘s apparent post-war transformation of the Long Range Desert Group into 8(a) SWAT teams whose members are allegedly recruited from child soldiers in SOS Children’s Villages; trained in clandestine operations including digital fires, and deployed to track pedophiles with Demon-face recognition software through federal bridge certification authority networks.
THE CHILD SOLDIER’S NEW JOB TRAILER
McConnell believes that Serco‘s investment bankers at N M Rothschild & Sons allowed special investors in the CAI Private Equity Group including David Johnston, Patron of SOS Canada and former Governor General of Canada, and the late General Al Haig, 7th Supreme Allied Commander in Europe (SACEUR), to operate a junket room on the 47th Floor of WTC1 (North Tower) where Serco shareholders watched a ‘live-broadcast mass snuff film‘ on 9/11 and their long range friends bet on the 8(a) war games allegedly promoted by the late Stephen Paddock, a former auditor for the Defense Contract Audit Agency.
McConnell alleges that the Greek Life associates of Wilbur Ross (Kappa Beta Phi), Serco‘s former investment banker at N M Rothschild and the former privatization advisor to former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani and George H. Bush and Bill Clinton (Phi Beta Kappa), set up a CAI command room in the Salomon Brothers Building (WTC7) from where Serco’s 8(a) SWAT teams could execute decoy and drone maneuvers on 9/11; spot fix the North Tower crash and predict a body-count spread.
Call Field McConnell for a SMEAC – “S” Situation, “M” Mission, “E” Execution, “A” Administration / Logistics, “C” Command/Signal – briefing on the 9/11 roles of Serco, SOS, CAI and Wilbur Ross’s Greek Life associates which might help your cabinet colleagues understand why WTC7 was “pulled” and break the alibis of the kinds of people whom J. Edgar Hoover may have described when he said, “Yet the individual is handicapped by coming face to face with a conspiracy so monstrous that he cannot believe it exists.”

“British defence contractor accused over hiring ex-child soldiers in Iraq
18 APRIL 2016 • 10:32AM
A major British private defence contractor may have recruited former child soldiers to work as security guards on American bases in Iraq, it has been alleged.
The claims against Aegis Defence Services are to be made in a Danish television documentary The Child Soldier’s New Job which is due to be broadcast later on Monday.
The documentary claims that Aegis, which is chaired by Sir Nicholas Soames, the Tory MP and grandson of Winston Churchill, hired some 2,500 mercenaries on as little as £10 a day in order to fulfil contracts to guard US military bases from 2004 onwards.
James Ellery, a former director of Aegis Defence Services between 2005 and 2015, told The Guardian that the company had not checked if the African mercenaries – mostly from Sierra Leone – had previously been child soldiers, and justified the hiring decision on cost.
“You probably would have a better force if you recruited entirely from the Midlands of England,” Mr Ellery, a former British army officer, told the newspaper.
“But it can’t be afforded. So you go from the Midlands of England to Nepalese etc etc, Asians, and then at some point you say I’m afraid all we can afford now is Africans.”
Mr Ellery added that under law child soldiers could not be held responsible for crimes they had committed as children, and that after 18 had a right to seek work freely – which Aegis had no right to deny.
“We would have been completely in error if, having gone to Sierra Leone, we excluded those people,” he added.
Mads Ellesøe, the film’s maker said he made the film because he wanted to make Western audiences “aware of the consequences of the privatisation of war”.
Graham Binns, senior managing director at GardaWorld, a Canadian company which took over Aegis last year, told the Guardian that his company had worked with carefully vetted and authorised local agents in Africa.
“Aegis takes issues pertinent to our industry, such as post-traumatic stress very seriously, and has worked closely with experts in the field to develop and implement procedures for the management of trauma risk,” he said.”
“Camp X was the unofficial name of the secret Special Training School No. 103, a Second World War paramilitary installation for training covert agents in the methods required for success in clandestine operations. It was located on the northwestern shore of Lake Ontario between Whitby and Oshawa in Ontario, Canada. The area is known today as Intrepid Park, after the code name for Sir William Stephenson, Director of British Security Co-ordination, who established the program to create the training facility.
The facility was jointly operated by the Canadian military, with help from Foreign Affairs and the RCMP but commanded by the British Security Co-ordination (BSC); it also had close ties with MI-6. In addition to the training program, the Camp had a communications tower that could send and transmit radio and telegraph communications, called Hydra.
Established December 6, 1941, the training facility closed before the end of 1944; the buildings were removed in 1969 and a monument was erected at the site.
Historian Bruce Forsythe summarized the purpose of the facility: “Trainees at the camp learned sabotage techniques, subversion, intelligence gathering, lock picking, explosives training, radio communications, encode/decode, recruiting techniques for partisans, the art of silent killing and unarmed combat.” Communication training, including Morse code, was also provided. The camp was so secret that even Canadian Prime Minister William Lyon Mackenzie King was unaware of its full purpose.”
“THE GOVERNOR GENERAL OF CANADA TO SERVE AS PATRON OF SOS CHILDREN’S VILLAGES
SOS Children’s Villages Canada is pleased to announce that His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston C.C., C.M.M., C.O.M, C.D., Governor General of Canada, has accepted our invitation to become the Patron of SOS Canada.
The Governor General was pleased to lend his endorsement to the important charitable work that SOS Children’s Villages does on behalf of orphaned and abandoned children and vulnerable families in more than 130 countries. This endorsement carries with it a long tradition of support from past Canadian governors general, including the Right Honourable Jeanne Sauvé, the Right Honourable Roméo LeBlanc, the Right Honourable Adrienne Clarkson and the Right Honourable Michaëlle Jean.
“Everyone at SOS Children’s Villages Canada is honoured and excited by this recent endorsement. His Excellency’s decision to grant our organization patronage is a wonderful acknowledgement and sign of support for the charitable work that we do on behalf of some of societies most vulnerable,” stated Peter Dudding, SOS Canada’s volunteer President and Chair of the Board of Directors.”
“SOS Childrens Villages Canada – CHILD SOLDIERS
A ‘Child Soldier’ is any child – boy or girl – under 18 years of age, who is forced to join and operate within an armed force or armed group in any capacity. It does not only refer to a child who is carrying, or has carried, weapons.
In the world today there are hundreds of thousands of child soldiers who have been abducted or forcibly recruited, or are driven to join by poverty, abuse and discrimination.
Once recruited, child soldiers may serve as porters or cooks, guards, messengers or spies. These children may even be pressed into combat, as the proliferation of small automatic weapons means that children can easily handle and operate them. Child soldiers are seen are expendable, and may be sent into minefields or other dangerous situations ahead of older combatants. Some have even been used for suicide missions.
Many child soldiers are left “stigmatized” and unable to return to his or her home community.
The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, Article 38, proclaimed that: “State parties shall take all feasible measures to ensure that persons who have not attached the age of 15 years do not take a direct part in hostilities.”
Article 8.2.26 of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court (ICC) entered into force 1 July 2002 states that “Conscripting or enlisting children under the age of fifteen years into the national armed forces or using them to participate actively in hostilities” is a war crime.
Forced or compulsory recruitment of anyone under the age of 18 for use in armed conflict is predefined as one of the worst forms of child labour.
Almost half of the world’s child soldiers are in Africa. Many of these children have been orphaned or abandoned due to AIDs, violence and war.
SOS Children’s Villages engages in rehabilitation programming and family reunification for former child soldiers.
Our rehabilitation and reunification program for each child soldier lasts around ten months. To begin with, the children are reintroduced to everyday life. We give them shelter, food, clean clothes and an education. Many children have never been to school and without an education will never break out of poverty.
SOS Children’s Villages helps former child soldiers to overcome the trauma of war through drawing, drama classes and counseling.”
“American Airlines Flight 11 was a domestic passenger flight that was hijacked by five al-Qaeda members on September 11, 2001, as part of the September 11 attacks. Mohamed Atta deliberately crashed the plane into the North Tower of the World Trade Center in New York City, killing all 92 people aboard and an unknown number in the building’s impact zone. The aircraft involved, a Boeing 767-223ER, registration N334AA, was flying American Airlines’ daily scheduled morning transcontinental service from Logan International Airport, in Boston, Massachusetts, to Los Angeles International Airport, in Los Angeles, California.
Fifteen minutes into the flight, the hijackers injured at least three people (possibly killing one), forcibly breached the cockpit, and overpowered the captain and first officer. Atta, an al-Qaeda member and licensed commercial pilot, took over the controls. Air-traffic controllers noticed the flight was in distress when the crew was no longer responding. They realized the flight had been hijacked when Mohamed Atta‘s announcements for passengers were transmitted to air traffic control. On board, flight attendants Amy Sweeney and Betty Ong contacted American Airlines, and provided information about the hijackers and injuries to passengers and crew.
The aircraft crashed into the North Tower of the World Trade Center at 08:46:40 local time. Countless people in the streets of New York City witnessed the strike, but few video recordings captured the moment. Documentary film maker Jules Naudet captured the only known footage of the initial impact from start to finish. Before the hijacking was confirmed, news agencies began to report on the incident and speculated that the crash had been an accident. The impact and subsequent fire caused the North Tower to collapse 102 minutes after the crash, resulting in hundreds of additional casualties. During the recovery effort at the World Trade Center site, workers recovered and identified dozens of remains from Flight 11 victims, but many body fragments could not be identified.”
“SERCO: ‘The biggest company you’ve never heard of’
JULY 7, 2013 BY 21WIRE
21st Century Wire says…
As politicians asset-strip the public’s portfolio of properties, infrastructure and services, one multinational corporation has grown as a result – and its scope and reach may shock many people who have not been paying attention.
All around the globe, our governments are busy outsourcing public-sector services like health, education, police, prisons, money delivery and military – to the esteemed private sector. It’s sold to the public as a solution to avoiding higher taxes, while retaining better services. But it’s simply an accountancy shell game, where the government kicks the can down the road by spreading the bill to the taxpayer over a longer period of time, in order to avoid any large upfront payments – all the while, allowing a private corporation to extend its influence over society. This, by definition, is fascism.
They are called SERCO, and they run countries…

“Badass of the month: David Stirling…
Sir Archibald David Stirling… He was a renowned mountaineer, a WW II British Army officer tight with the OSS via a friendship with Colonel Rex Applegate, (see my December 18th post) and the founder of Britain’s famed Special Air Service Regiment.
He is shown here with members of the Long Range Desert Group in North Africa, where Rommel called him “the Phantom Major.” He stood 6 feet 6, and was in training to climb Mount Everest when WWII broke out.
He formed and trained the first elements of the SAS on the premise that a small unit of elite, highly trained commandos could create more havoc and exact more damage on the enemy than a platoon, or even a company, of regular soldiers. It was a hard sell at the time, but the Special Air Service became (and remains) the gold standard of Special Operations forces worldwide. (The plum training slot for U.S. Special Operations people is an assignment to train with the SAS at Hereford…)
Like most all of the brethren in Special Ops, Stirling was a wid, colorful character. His exploits during WWII (mostly in the North African desert) resulted in him being captured and ending up a POW four times, and escaping four times. When he was captured a fifth time, the Germans sent him to Colditz Prison, where he was finally obliged to sit out the war. Field Marshal Montgomery said Stirling was “possibly quite mad,” but allowed as to how Britain needed such men in time of war. He claimed to have personally strangled 41 men.
David Stirling was knighted in 1990. He died a few months later, on November 4, eleven days before his 75th birthday.”
“As the FBI continues to sift through the past of Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock, an investigative focus has developed on how he earned money and the recent travels of Paddock and his girlfriend Marilou Danley, law enforcement officials familiar with the probe told Yahoo.
At least two points of travel interest were recent trips taken to Dubai and Spain, as well as more than 200 reports detailing large financial transactions Paddock made at casinos since 2014. While Danley has family in Dubai, sources told Yahoo that the FBI is seeking to determine details of all overseas trips involving either Paddock or his girlfriend, as well as any financial transactions that may have taken place on the trips.
Paddock killed 59 people and wounded more than 500 when he opened fire Sunday night on a country music festival from his suite on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. Police say Paddock committed suicide before they got to his room, where they found a trove of weapons that included high-powered rifles. Las Vegas police said Paddock’s attack lasted between nine to 11 minutes.”
“NATO The term came into use again with the formation of NATO in 1949. In 1952, Allied Command Europe was established, led by Eisenhower. He became the Supreme Allied Commander Europe (SACEUR). Soon afterwards, Allied Command Atlantic was established, at Norfolk, Virginia, under Lynde McCormick, a U.S. Navy admiral. His title was Supreme Allied Commander Atlantic (SACLANT), and the entire command was usually known as SACLANT. Both Supreme Commander have, until 2009, been American, with a deputy commander from another NATO member, though only British and Germans have held the post.
In June 2003, the commands were reshuffled. One command was given responsibility for operations, and one for transforming the military components of the alliance to meet new challenges. In Europe, Allied Command Operations was established from the former Allied Command Europe, and given responsibility for all NATO military operations worldwide. However, for legal reasons[further explanation needed], SACEUR retained the traditional title including Europe. In the United States, SACLANT was decommissioned and Allied Command Transformation established. The headquarters of ACT is at the former SACLANT headquarters in Norfolk, Virginia, USA. Each has a Supreme Allied Commander as its commander.
Allied Command Operations (ACO) has its headquarters at Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe(SHAPE), at Mons, Belgium. It is headed by the Supreme Allied Commander, Europe (SACEUR), a U.S. four-star general or admiral also heading U.S. European Command. The current (since 2016) Commander is General Curtis Scaparrotti (Army), who succeeded General Philip M. Breedlove (Air Force).
Allied Command Transformation (ACT) is located in Norfolk, Virginia, USA. It is headed by the Supreme Allied Commander Transformation (SACT), a four-star general or admiral. General Stéphane Abrial, the commander from 2009 until 2012, was the first non-American to hold a supreme commander role within NATO. Since then this position has been held by a French Air Force officer. The commander of the organization is currently General Denis Mercier. ”

RESTON, VIRGINIA – May 2, 2011 – Serco Inc., 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 at Serco.”

“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.”

“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. In August 2016, Ross agreed to reimburse investors $11.8 million and pay a fine of $2.3 million to settle a Securities and Exchange Commission probe into the overcharging of fees by WL Ross & Co. The company had self-reported the issue to the SEC and did not admit any liability.”
“What We Have Done
Beginning in 1976, CAC grew to become one of the biggest suppliers of qualified hi-rollers to the international casino gaming houses and developer of international junket marketing programs. The company operated in Las Vegas, Atlantic City, Bahamas, Caribbean, Europe, Africa and Australia.
CAC is a pioneer in the development of casino gaming in Canada, starting with the operation of the CNE Casino (Canadian National Exhibition), Ontario’s first mega casino from 1992 until 1996. During that time the CNE Casino expanded from 20 table games to become on of the world’s largest table game casino with 165 Table games.
In 1993, with the success of the CNE Casino, CAC developed and advanced the Roving Charity Casino in Ontario along with an operating partner. These gaming operations were first opened in Toronto and soon expanded into Windsor and Niagara Falls to capture the American markets in Detroit, Buffalo and Niagara Falls USA, setting the table for future commercial casinos in those border cities.
Recognizing the growing demand for casino gambling, the Government of Ontario created a Crown Corporation to develop destination gaming resorts. In response to the bid for Ontario’s first mega casino resort, CAC contracted with Steve Wynn’s Mirage Resorts to bid on the Casino Windsor project. Following a determination by Mirage Resorts to advance projects in other gaming jurisdictions and depart from Ontario, Aubrey Zidenberg, principal of CAC contracted with Carnival Hotels and Casinos (CHC) to jointly develop and operate Casino Rama on the Mnjikaning First Nation Reservation north of Toronto. CHC was later purchased by Penn National Gaming, the third largest gaming company in the United States.
Aubrey Zidenberg is President and CEO of ZAP Casinos Canada, an associated company with Penn National Gaming in the operating agreement of Casino Rama and holds a financial interest in the operating company, Carnival Hotels and Casinos Canada.

“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.”
“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 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.
