Kelly 189: Serco’s MH Handoff Wagering Patents, Clinton LEO JABS For Imagis Body-Count Buck, AD Letter of Marque

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

January 19, 2018

Dear General Kelly:

Please accept Brief 189 from Field McConnell – United States Marine Corps whistle-blower and Global Operations Director of Abel Danger (AD) – on the investors in Serco’s CAI private-equity group who allegedly equipped patentee SWAT teams with Freescale’s Systems and methods for distributing content in wireless networks US 20090185522 A1 and Nortel’s Broadcast handoff between communication networks US 8086234 B2 and tasked them to impute ad hoc way points into the Boeing autopilot on MH Flight 370 in support of Real-time interactive wagering on [death-pool] event outcomes CA 2460367 A1.

McConnell claims that in 1995, Serco’s CAI investor, Yves Fortier, a former Nortel and Alcan director, and former FBI Associate Deputy Director and current chairman of Vancouver-based Imagis, Oliver “Buck” Revell, integrated JABS* with the FBI’s Law Enforcement Online (LEO) network and thereby gave the ‘Travelgate’ aides of former patent lawyer Hillary Clinton the ability to deploy SWAT teams to death-pool betting crime scenes and stand down crime-scene investigators with Nortel’s Method for efficient management of certificate revocation lists and update information US 5699431 A.

McConnell claims that, in the particular case of MH Flight 370, Serco SWAT teams broadcast the snuff-film murders of 20 senior staff of Freescale Semiconductors over the LEO JABS networks to remind U.S. defense contractors, including Freescale and Boeing and their clients in China and Malaysia that USPTO operations, previously controlled by The Committee of Imperial Defence from just after the Second Boer War until the start of the Second World War, have been outsourced to Serco (formerly RCA GB 1929)!

McConnell claims that the late Gen. Alexander Haig, Serco‘s CAI investor, 7th SACEUR and former MGM Mirage director, equipped the Greek Life associates of Bill Clinton (Phi Beta Kappa) and Wilbur Ross (Kappa Beta Phi) with Virtual Command Centers (VCCs) so they could deploy Serco patentee SWAT teams and junket-room promoters such as the late Stephen Paddock to deliver body counts including the time-stamped snuff-film images and allow elite insiders to scoop the junket-room pot.

JABS* – Joint Automated Booking System allegedly built by Nortel Government Solutions for the U.S. Department of Justice so insiders can book criminals and patsied patentee SWAT teams into assassination or mass-casualty events to control the outcome of crime-scene investigations and enrich Serco‘s private-equity investors including Yves Fortier and the late Alexander Haig.

Field McConnell invites you to convene a meeting with your cabinet colleagues and United States Marine Corps Major Duncan D. Hunter, Member of the U.S. House of Representatives from California’s 50th district, where McConnell can explain how Serco uses patentee SWAT teams, embedded in the FBI’s Law Enforcement Online network, to conceal body-count wagering at the various mass-casualty events which have been and are being fraudulently attributed through fake news and media plays to terrorist groups or human error.

After meeting with Congressman Hunter and your cabinet colleagues, McConnell will be asking Congress to authorize President Trump to issue a Presidential letter of Marque and Reprisal, which would allow him (McConnell) to recruit and lead an Abel Danger Marine Expeditionary Unit of about 100 veteran Marines to seize and take the assets of any patentee SWAT teams in the custody of Serco‘s private-equity groups (privateers), or shareholders or investment banker, N M Rothschild & Sons Ltd.

After the said assets have been transferred to the safe and lawful custody of the United States’ government, McConnell’s MEU will begin to subdue the secret societies identified as Phi Beta Kappa and Kappa Beta Phi (founded 1776) which, we allege, have been blackmailing and extorting presidents of the United States through over two hundred years of patentee SWAT-team attacks including the arson of the U.S. Patent Office in the USA Post Office, Blodget’s Hotel, Washington, on December 15, 1836.

“Malaysian plane: 20 passengers worked for ELECTRONIC WARFARE and MILITARY RADAR firm
A US technology company which had 20 senior staff on board Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 had just launched a new electronic warfare gadget for military radar systems in the days before the Boeing 777 went missing.
By TED JEORY
PUBLISHED: 08:19, Wed, Mar 19, 2014
Freescale Semiconductor, which makes powerful microchips for industries including defence, released the powerful new products to the American market on March 3.

Five days later, Flight MH370 took off from Kuala Lumpur for Beijing with 239 people on board including 20 working for Freescale.

Twelve were from Malaysia, while eight were Chinese nationals.

Freescale’s spokesman Mitch Haws has said: “These were all people with a lot of experience and technical background and they were very important people.

“It’s definitely a loss for the company.”

Freescale’s shareholders include the Carlyle Group of private equity investors whose past advisers have included ex-US president George Bush Sr [Phi Beta Kappa] and former British Prime Minister John Major.

These were all people with a lot of experience and technical background – they were very important

Freescale Semiconductor

Carlyle’s previous heavyweight clients include the Saudi Binladin Group, the construction firm owned by the family of Osama bin Laden.

The fact that Freescale had so many highly qualified staff on board the Boeing 777 had already prompted wild conspiracy theories about what might have happened.

The company says they were flying to China to improve its consumer products operations, but Freescale’s fresh links to electronic warfare technology is likely to trigger more speculation and deepen the mystery.

Experts have been baffled how a large passenger jet seems to have flown undetected and possibly beaten military radar systems for up to six hours.

Avoiding radar via “cloaking technology” has long been one of the objectives of the defence industry and Freescale has been active developing chips for military radar.

On its website, the company says its radio frequency products meet the requirements for applications in “avionics, radar, communications, missile guidance, electronic warfare and identification friend or foe”.

Last June it announced it was creating a team of specialists dedicated to producing “radio frequency power products” for the defence industry.

And on March 3, it announced it was releasing 11 of these new gadgets for use in “high frequency, VHF and low-band UHF radar and radio communications”.

The company did not respond to questions from Express Online, including whether any of its missing employees had been working on the defence products.”

“Mysterious Malaysia Air Flight 370 Highlights Flaws in Aircraft Tracking
Air traffic controllers lost contact with the jetliner at the junction of several international air traffic control regions—the kind of fringe location where radar coverage is known be spotty
By Larry Greenemeier on March 20, 2014

There is no shortage of theories about what may have happened to missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. Some depict the flight crew of the Boeing 777-200ER into heroes battling and eventually succumbing to an onboard fire. Others paint them as hijackers and kidnappers stealing off with a commercial aircraft and hundreds of hostages. Veracity of such speculation aside, they all point to one problem—the futility of tracking transoceanic aircraft across international borders when their data transmission systems and transponders cease to function.

Modern technology tends to evoke feelings that Big Brother is always watching. The unsolved mystery of Flight 370, however, makes clear that Big Brother does not exist in the sky—long-haul passenger aircraft are at the mercy of a coordinated air traffic control system that relies on a series of handoffs across independently monitored “flight information regions” to get passengers safely to their destinations. Aircraft are equipped with technology that automatically communicates certain information, but this coordination works best if there is regular communication between the cockpit and air traffic control.

As defined by the United Nations’ International Civil Aviation Organization, a flight information region is an expanse of airspace within which an aircraft receives basic levels of air traffic service, including information about weather and potentially conflicting air traffic. Larger countries are typically divided into multiple regions, whereas some small countries’ entire airspace fits in a single zone.

The area where air traffic control lost contact with Flight 370 the morning of March 8 as it flew 239 passengers and crew from Kuala Lumpur en route to Beijing is a patchwork of regions controlled by different countries. For nearly two weeks, investigators from 26 countries have helped Malaysia look for the plane without success.

Although it is difficult to trace Flight 370’s route exactly because the aircraft’s transponder and secondary radar went silent after about an hour into its journey, several sources report the 777 turned westward from its route to Beijing near the border of several different flight information regions. These areas are maintained by Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam, respectively. Authorities learned several hours after the fact that Flight 370 had changed its heading to fly across northern Malaysia toward the Strait of Malacca. The latest reports about the aircraft’s fate revolves around large pieces of debris reportedly spotted via satellite imagery in the southern Indian Ocean, thousands of kilometers from the aircraft’s original destination. Search teams have yet to confirm whether the objects in the images are from the China-bound flight, however.

Radar coverage at the fringes of flight information regions can be spotty due to radio wave attenuation—that is, loss of signal intensity—which can be exacerbated by rough terrain, says Jason Day, an instructor in Arizona State University’s Aviation Program and a former airline pilot. “Once you get on the fringe, clouds can also mess with the signal,” he adds.

Military aircraft might fly along the edges of two flight information regions to provide stealth, but there are few legitimate reasons for a commercial airline pilot to do this intentionally, Day says.

Air traffic control centers hand off responsibility for flights as aircraft move through these regions and from one region to another. This is analogous to the way cell phone towers pass along mobile phone signals as users migrate from one area of coverage to another. In aviation, a pilot generally acknowledges such a transition by saying “good-night” or “good-bye” to the previous air traffic control center. Several reports indicate the last verbal communication with air traffic controllers from Flight 370—less than an hour after takeoff—was, “All right, good-night.”

Shortly afterward, civilian air traffic controllers lost contact with Flight 370, although military radar reportedly detected the aircraft hours later, hundreds of kilometers off course. Air traffic controllers on the ground are unable to determine whether someone onboard the 777 purposely severed communications or if this was done in reaction to a fire or other catastrophe.

Pilots control much of the aircraft directly from the cockpit, including cabin pressure and oxygen flow, along with the Flight Management System (FMS) computer and transponder signal, which broadcasts the aircraft’s altitude, direction and air speed. The Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System (ACARS), which transmits information from the FMS to air traffic controllers, is integrated directly into the computer and runs in the background. A crew member could effectively turn it off by shutting down the FMS, according to Day. “The only way someone on the ground would know that you’d made changes to the Flight Management System is by studying the info broadcast by the ACARS,” he says. If the ACARS is shut off, air traffic control would not immediately know whether someone had programmed new instructions into the FMS.

Pilots can fly without their FMS under certain circumstances—an electrical fire requiring power to that circuit be turned off or the system is providing erroneous readings, Day says. If the system “goes haywire,” the pilots might shut it down and navigate using raw data sent to their aircraft by short-range radio signals, a beacon or an instrument landing system, depending on where the aircraft is in relation to its landing site.

The aviation industry has for the past several years been developing technology to address the inability of air traffic controllers and the airlines themselves to remain in continuous contact with aircraft on long flights over the ocean. One of the more promising innovations is satellite-based automated dependent surveillance–broadcast (ADS–B) equipment. ADS–B relies on communication between Global Positioning System satellites and transponders placed on board aircraft to inform pilots, other aircraft and air traffic controllers about an aircraft’s location, identity, speed and altitude. ADS–B continuously collects and transmits information, whereas radar emits electromagnetic waves at regular intervals.

The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has been pushing adoption of ADS-B as part of its Next Generation Air Transportation System program for years, although the technology is still not mainstream. The FAA is hoping ADS–B “will move air traffic control from a radar-based system to a satellite-derived aircraft location system,” according to the May 28, 2010 Federal Register, which states aircraft operating in most U.S. airspace must have ADS-B by 2020 (pdf). Aircraft operating in European Union airspace must have ADS-B by 2017, and new aircraft built beginning 2015 must be equipped with the technology (pdf). Several other countries, including Australia, Singapore and Vietnam, have already begun to require certain aircraft to have ADS-B when flying in certain parts of their airspace.”

“The White House travel office controversy, sometimes referred to as Travelgate,[1][2] was the first major ethics controversy of the Clinton administration. It began in May 1993, when seven employees of the White House Travel Office were fired. This action was unusual because although theoretically staff employees serve at the pleasure of the President and could be dismissed without cause, in practice, such employees usually remain in their posts for many years.

The White House stated the firings were done because financial improprieties in the Travel Office operation during previous administrations had been revealed by an FBI investigation. Critics contended the firings were done to allow friends of President Bill Clinton and First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton to take over the travel business and that the involvement of the FBI was unwarranted. Heavy media attention forced the White House to reinstate most of the employees in other jobs and remove the Clinton associates from the travel role.

Further investigations by the FBI and the Department of Justice, the White House itself, the General Accounting Office, the House Government Reform and Oversight Committee, and the WhitewaterIndependent Counsel all took place over the subsequent years. Travel Office Director Billy Dale was charged with embezzlement but found not guilty in 1995. In 1998, Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr exonerated Bill Clinton of any involvement in the matter.

Hillary Clinton gradually came under scrutiny for allegedly having played a central role in the firings and making false statements about her involvement therein. In 2000, Independent Counsel Robert Ray issued his final report on Travelgate. He sought no charges against her, saying that while some of Clinton’s statements were factually false, there was insufficient evidence that these statements were either knowingly false or that she understood that her statements led to the firings.”

“UKs Crime Squad picks face-recognition tech
December 3, 2001 Posted: 9:07 a.m. EST (1407 GMT)
LONDON, England (IDG) — Imagis Technologies Inc. and Serco Group PLC are working with the UK’s National Crime Squad (NCS) to develop a facial-recognition application for use in crime fighting.

The squad is working on a national database based on Imagis ID-2000 facial-recognition technology to use as a tool for keeping track of convicted pedophiles and other criminals, Imagis announced at the Biometrics 2001 Conference here on Thursday.

“We are working with both Imagis and Serco on the technology,” an NCS spokesman confirmed.

UK-based Serco is a management and consulting company that has been providing IT support to the U.K. government and the NCS, a government agency, for a number of years. The Canadian Imagis Technologies is a developer of image-identification software with a focus on biometric facial recognition, according to the company’s Web site.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The Imagis’ ID-2000 was picked for further development by the UK government for its ability to identify an individual within very large databases of images in seconds, its ability to search for common background scenes as well as faces, its use imagery from any source, including live video as well as digital and analog photos and the security built into the program that allows for the secure transmission of data even from remote databases, Imagis said in a statement that was vetted and approved by the NCS.

The software will aid law-enforcement agencies in identifying victims and perpetrators as well as background imagery for criminal investigation and case preparation, Imagis said.

Already being used by the NCS, the facial-recognition technology is playing a part in the ongoing investigation into an online pedophile group which on Wednesday led to the arrest of 130 people worldwide, 10 in the UK, Imagis said.

The software is also being looked into as a tool for the fight against international terrorism, an NCS spokesman said.

In October, a U.S. Senate subcommittee began looking into the possible future use of cutting-edge devices such as facial-recognition monitors and retinal scanners as a way to combat terrorism following the attacks in New York and Washington D.C. on September 11.

The Imagis ID-2000 facial-recognition technology is also currently being used by the Oakland Police Department (OPD), in Oakland, California throughout Alameda County, including the Oakland International Airport, the OPD and Imagis announced in October.”

“IMAGIS SIGNS LICENSE AGREEMENT WITH ZIXSYS INC., A SUBSIDIARY OF SANYO SEMICONDUCTOR COMPANY
Zixsys launches ID Controller, a multi-layered biometric access control unit
using Imagis’ facial recognition technology

Vancouver, Canada; Tokyo, Japan; May 21, 2002 – Imagis Technologies Inc. (“Imagis”) (OTCBB: IGSTF; TSX: NAB; Germany: IGY) today announced that further to its press release of March 12, 2002, it has entered into a license agreement with Zixsys Inc. (“Zixsys”), a subsidiary of SANYO Semiconductor Company (“Sanyo”). Under the license agreement, Imagis has granted a worldwide, non-exclusive license to Zixsys to use Imagis’ ID-2000 advanced biometric facial recognition software to design, manufacture and market highly secure products for access control, public protection in and around airports, passenger identification and employee identification.

“The agreement between Imagis and Zixsys is the beginning of a new era of biometric products that we believe will lead the market by addressing the security needs of various industries,” said Iain Drummond, President and CEO of Imagis. “Zixsys’ first product utilizing Imagis biometrics is ID Controller, which provides multi-layered security in the form of facial recognition and fingerprint biometrics, plus added compression and encryption of data.”

The granting of the license is the first formal step in the establishment of a relationship between Zixsys and Imagis. In its March 12, 2002 news release, Imagis announced that it was forming Zixsys (at the time named SecurityART) along with six affiliates of Sanyo Semiconductor Company, one of the five principal companies of Sanyo Electric Co. Ltd. Imagis intends to complete its investment in and become a shareholder of Zixsys within the next three months.

In consideration for licensing the Imagis software, Zixsys has agreed to pay Imagis a licensing fee and certain royalties based upon the level of sales generated. The license agreement has a 10-year term.

ID Controller integrates Imagis facial recognition software, ID-2000, Sanyo’s CCD camera with fingerprint sensor technology, and Intacta.Code compression and encoding technology, developed by Intacta Technologies Inc. ID Controller confirms an identity by reading the fingerprint and facial details encoded on an individual’s ID card, and comparing them against the actual finger and face of the person who submitted the card, as read by a fingerprint reader and camera built into the access control unit. The hardware and software product, which is completely customizable, is used to safeguard environments where access control security is of utmost importance, such as airports, hotels, government buildings, large event venues, and industrial and office facilities.

Imagis Chairman is Oliver “Buck” Revell, who served for over 30 years in the FBI, and during his career advanced to the number two-career post of Associate Deputy Director. Visit our website at http://www.imagistechnologies.com.”

“Oliver ‘Buck’ Revell is the FBI‘s former Assistant Director who spent 30 years working his way up to the highest rank in career government service. Upon Buck Revell’s retirement in 1994, he founded Revell Group International (RGI), a global network of former senior FBI, security service, intelligence, diplomatic, law enforcement and military officials with a broad range of international business and technical experience.[1]Revell graduated from East Tennessee State University and got his Masters from Temple University in Public Administration. He served four years in the Marines as an aviator and left as a Captain.[2] ….

Buck Revell began his career in the FBI in November 1964. He recently published a book entitled G-Man’s Journal to chronicle his experiences in the FBI from the Kennedy assassination to the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing from an insider’s point of view. Revell served in the Kansas City, Philadelphia and Tampa Divisions of the FBI and at FBI Headquarters (FBIHQ) in the Organized Crime Section, the Inspection Division and the Office of Planning and Evaluation. In January 1975, Revell was promoted to Assistant Special Agent in charge of the Chicago Division, and later as Acting Special Agent in Charge. In October 1976, Revell was promoted to Senior Executive Service (SES) rank and designated Inspector and Executive Assistant to the Associate Director at FBIHQ. In November 1977, he was designated Special Agent in Charge of the Oklahoma Division. In August 1979, Revell was designated Deputy Assistant Director, Criminal Investigative Division, FBIHQ, where he directed the FBI’s programs in Organized Crime, White Collar Crime, Official Corruption and Undercover Operations. In June 1980, he was promoted to Assistant Director and placed in charge of the Criminal Investigative Division, making him responsible for the criminal investigative and counter-terrorism programs and operations of the FBI.

In January 1981, Assistant Director Revell was placed in charge of the Administrative Services Division where he was responsible for Personnel, Budget, Finance and Physical and Personnel Security Operations of the FBI. In May 1982, Revell was again placed in charge of the Criminal Investigative Division and given the additional responsibility of planning and implementing the FBI’s newly acquired drug enforcement jurisdiction. In July 1985, Revell was promoted to Executive Assistant Director – Investigations (SES-6) the highest rank in career government service. He served as the Director’s deputy in charge of Criminal Investigative, Counter-Terrorism and Counter-Intelligence activities. He was also responsible for international investigative and liaison activities of the Bureau, including its Legal Attaché and INTERPOL operations.[3]

Senior positions

In July 1989, his title was changed to Associate Deputy Director – Investigations and oversight of the Training and Laboratory Divisions of the FBI were added to his responsibilities. As a member (1982-1991) of the President’s Council on Integrity and Efficiency, he was Chairman of the Council’s Committee on Integrity and Law Enforcement. He served on the Attorney General’s Economic Crime Council and as Chairman, INTERPOL Conference on International Financial Crime in Cannes. He was a member of the National Foreign Intelligence Board, the Terrorist Crisis Management Committee and the Group on Narcotics. He served as Vice Chairman of the Interagency Group/Counterintelligence. In 1985, he was a member of the Senior Review Group of the Vice President’s Task Force on Terrorism. He served as a U.S. delegate to the United Nations International Conference on Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking in Vienna.

Revell was a member of the Senior Policy Group of the Vice President’s Task Force on Border Control Issues in 1988; he also served as an Adviser to the President’s Commission on Aviation Security and Terrorism which was established in 1989 “to investigate the events surrounding the destruction of Pan Am Flight 103“. He was a member of “The Executive Session on Policing”, Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University, 1987-1991.

Lockerbie bombing

Disaster warning

On 21 December 1988, shortly before Pan Am Flight 103 took off from London’s Heathrow airport at 18:25 hours, FBI Assistant Director Oliver “Buck” Revell reportedly rushed out onto the tarmac and pulled his son and daughter-in-law off the plane. The Lockerbie bombing was not the first time authorities were warned of an impending terrorist attack. The situation would repeat itself five years later in New York City, and seven years later in Oklahoma. It was an all too eerie coincidence.

Typically, U.S. authorities disingenuously denied receiving any warnings, as they would later do in New York and Oklahoma. Yet, as in those cases, evidence of prior knowledge would eventually become known. “It subsequently came to me on further inquiries that they hadn’t ignored [the warnings],” said a Pan Am security officer. “A number of VIPs were pulled off that plane. A number of intelligence operatives were pulled off that plane.”

Due to the warnings posted in U.S. embassies by the State Department (but not forwarded to Pan Am), many government employees avoided the flight. In fact, the Boeing 747 jumbo jet was only two-thirds full that busy holiday evening. South African president P W Botha and several high-ranking officials were advised by state security forces to change their reservations at the last hour. The South African State Security forces have a close relationship with the CIA.

Just as they would do in Oklahoma, government officials promised a complete and thorough investigation. Stated Oliver “Buck” Revell, who headed up the Bureau’s Lockerbie investigation:

“All of us working on the case made it a very, very personal priority of the first order.”

Fronting for the CIA, Vincent Cannistraro chimed in:

“I had personal friends on that plane who died. And I assure you that I wanted to find the perpetrators of that disaster as much as anyone wanted to.”

As in Oklahoma City, this would become the catch-all phrase that would set everything right and prove the government had no involvement. Of course, this would be somewhat difficult in Revell’s case, since he pulled his son and daughter-in-law off the plane minutes before it took off. (This was suspiciously reminiscent of the ATF agents who were paged not to come into work on April 19.)

Interestingly, Revell was the FBI’s lead investigator in the crash of an Arrow Air DC-8 which exploded on 12 December 1985 in Gander, Newfoundland, with the loss of all 248 personnel. As in Oklahoma City, that site was quickly bulldozed, destroying crucial forensic evidence, with an Army official maintaining a watchful eye at all times. Hiding behind the cover-up was the same cast of characters — Oliver North, Duane Clarridge, and Vince Cannistraro — who was North’s deputy at the NSC during Iran-Contra, and would later appear in Lockerbie. The same cast of characters that lurked behind the scandals in Nicaragua and Iran, and would appear like ghostly apparitions in the smoldering ruins of Oklahoma City.

It was also an act that the U.S. Shadow Government, responsible for precipitating, was anxious to cover up. Had the true cause of the crash — North’s double-dealing with the Iranians — been revealed, the Iran-Contra scandal would have surfaced two years before it did.

Oliver “Buck” Revell would be on hand to make sure it didn’t.

Three years later, in Lockerbie, the government was still claiming its hands were clean. Yet it vigorously protested Pan Am’s attempts to subpoena warning memos and other documents that would have revealed the government’s foreknowledge, just as it did in Oklahoma.

Simply stated, the attack on Pan Am 103 was in retaliation for the downing of the Iranian airbus.[4]

“Law Enforcement Online
Information Sharing, Web Style
09/06/05
After the first London bombing in July, we notified more than 5,000 law enforcement professionals nationwide about the attacks in 32 seconds.

How? Through Law Enforcement Online, or LEO, a secure computer network that gives law enforcement officers around the country access to sensitive but unclassified information, intelligence reports, and alerts crafted by our agents and analysts–the kind of information our partners need quickly, but shouldn’t be available to the public.

LEO started ten summers ago as a small dial-up service with just 20 members. Now, it has more than 46,000 members nationwide and a host of features and capabilities offered through the Internet.

“One of our agents said it best: LEO is the ‘the law enforcement, criminal justice, and public safety information highway of the 21st century,'” said Special Agent Kenneth Cassine, LEO Unit Chief and program manager within our Criminal Justice Information Services Division.

How else has LEO evolved? Shortly before 9/11/01, we made LEO a Virtual Private Network that operates securely over the Internet and enables features too cumbersome for the dial-up service. We now offer the Virtual Command Center (VCC)–an information sharing and crisis management tool. The VCC allows the law enforcement community to use LEO at local and remote sites as an electronic command center to submit and view information and intelligence.

For example, law enforcement personnel working a recent Academy Awards ceremony observed several unauthorized people in a restricted area carrying balloons. The incident was reported to the VCC and immediately posted. An officer working the event saw the notice. He knew from previous experience that the individuals were probably anarchists who intended to throw balloons filled with paint and other liquids and shared that information through the VCC. The officer’s action helped ensure that the group was detained without incident.

What else does LEO offer? Here’s a rundown:

A national alert system directing members to the LEO site for information on emergencies (like the London bombings, for example);

Some 235 special interest groups that allow members who share expertise or interests to connect with each other, including areas on terrorism, street gangs, and bombs;

Access to important and useful databases, like those run by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children;

E-mail services, which enable members to submit fingerprints to the FBI for processing by our Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System;

Distance learning-with several online learning modules on topics like terrorism response, forensic anthropology and leadership; and

A multimedia library of publications, documents, studies, research, technical bulletins, and other reports of interest to LEO users.

If you work for a law enforcement, criminal justice, or public safety agency, you can join LEO, too. Just send an e-mail to leoprogramoffice@leo.gov or call 202-324-8833.”

“Nevada Gaming Commission OKs record $5.5 million fine against CG Technology
By CHRIS SIEROTY LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL
January 23, 2014 – 6:44 pm
The Nevada Gaming Commission on Thursday unanimously approved a record $5.5 million fine levied against the race and sports book subsidiary of Cantor Fitzgerald L.P. related to illegal bets by a top executive.

“Today is a bad day,” Commissioner Tony Alamo said. “This is an enormously large sum of money. This is a revenue get. That’s not our goal. Our goal is to punish” those who violate state gaming regulations.

Alamo credited CG Technology’s CEO Lee Amaitis for attending the hearing but cautioned him that this incident was national news and “gave Nevada a black eye.” Alamo said he wouldn’t want to see CG Technology come before the commission for a similar incident in the future.

“I am not afraid of revocation” of a company’s license,” Alamo said.

Chairman Peter Bernhard said he was initially reluctant to support the stipulation because of the damage done to the industry by the company. But Bernhard eventually supported it because it is the largest fine ever against a gaming company. He said the $5.5 million fine sends a message that “people will be held accountable.”

The three-member Nevada Gaming Control Board could have also recommended revoking or suspending CG Technology’s license.

Amaitis attended the hearing but did not address the commission. He also declined to comment on the commission’s decision following the 20-minute hearing.

The Gaming Control Board’s 18-count compliant outlining the charges against CG Technology, formerly Cantor Gaming, was made public Jan. 8. The settlement was released Jan. 13.

In the complaint, regulators said CG Technology failed to prevent Michael Colbert from operating an illegal sports betting ring that made an estimated $34 million in bets. Colbert, formerly risk management director and vice president of the former Cantor Gaming in Las Vegas, worked with three men who worked as messengers to place wagers for Gadoon Kyrollos, a high-level sports bettor.

Paul Sexton, Robert Drexler and Thomas Ludford acted as messenger bettors, according to the complaint. Sexton pleaded guilty to fourth-degree money-laundering and forfeited $600,000.

In 2013, Colbert pleaded guilty in federal court in New York to one felony count of conspiracy for his role in the betting ring. He awaits sentencing.

The settlement says CG Technology admitted guilt in 14 counts of the complaint and concurred that the board could prove one count directly relating to Colbert’s oversight of the illegal wagering operation. The company did not admit or deny allegations in three other counts.

Both Amaitis and Cantor Fitzgerald Chairman Howard Lutnick signed off on the settlement.

Before the CG Technology fine, the largest fine ever approved by Nevada gaming regulators was $5 million in 2003 against MGM Mirage, now MGM Resorts International. The company was fined for failing to file 15,000 currency transaction reports with the Internal Revenue Service.

Owners of the Stardust paid a $3 million fine in 1984 to settle a complaint over allegations that the now-imploded Strip casino’s former owner failed to prevent mob-related skimming of gaming revenue.

In 1988, Ralph Engelstad, late owner of the Imperial Palace, was accused of damaging the state’s reputation for holding two Adolf Hitler birthday parties at the casino in separate years. He paid a $1.5 million fine.

The Palms paid a $1 million fine in 2013 to settle a complaint resulting from an investigation that discovered drug sales and prostitution at clubs on the property.

Cantor Fitzgerald, founded in 1945, is one of the largest private financial services firms on Wall Street. Lutnick has led the company’s expansion over the past decade into investment banking, commercial real estate and gaming.

CG Technology operates race and sports books at the M Resort, Hard Rock Hotel, Tropicana Las Vegas, The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, The Venetian, Palms and Silverton, and provides information as Las Vegas Sports Consultants and offers mobile wagering.

The bookmaker also has operations in China and the Bahamas.”

“8(a) Business Development Program[edit] The 8(a) Business Development Program assists in the development of small businesses owned and operated by individuals who are socially and economically disadvantaged, such as women and minorities. 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, 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.[28]”

“Nortel Government Solutions, in collaboration with the Department of Justice (DOJ), built the Joint Automated Booking System (JABS) — a centralized system for automating the collection of fingerprint, photographic and biographic data, submitting this data to the FBI, and sharing it with participating law enforcement agencies nationwide.”

“The White House travel office controversy, sometimes referred to as Travelgate,[1][2] was the first major ethics controversy of the Clinton administration. It began in May 1993, when seven employees of the White House Travel Office were fired. This action was unusual because although theoretically staff employees serve at the pleasure of the President and could be dismissed without cause, in practice, such employees usually remain in their posts for many years.

The White House stated the firings were done because financial improprieties in the Travel Office operation during previous administrations had been revealed by an FBI investigation. Critics contended the firings were done to allow friends of President Bill Clinton and First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton to take over the travel business and that the involvement of the FBI was unwarranted. Heavy media attention forced the White House to reinstate most of the employees in other jobs and remove the Clinton associates from the travel role.

Further investigations by the FBI and the Department of Justice, the White House itself, the General Accounting Office, the House Government Reform and Oversight Committee, and the Whitewater Independent Counsel all took place over the subsequent years. Travel Office Director Billy Dale was charged with embezzlement but found not guilty in 1995. In 1998, Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr exonerated Bill Clinton of any involvement in the matter.

Hillary Clinton gradually came under scrutiny for allegedly having played a central role in the firings and making false statements about her involvement therein. In 2000, Independent Counsel Robert Ray issued his final report on Travelgate. He sought no charges against her, saying that while some of Clinton’s statements were factually false, there was insufficient evidence that these statements were either knowingly false or that she understood that her statements led to the firings.”

“Virtual Command Center
Real-Time Tool to Securely Monitor Criminal Incidents and Major Events Online
July 3, 2012
Originally published in the July 2012 edition of the CJIS Link, Volume 14, Number 2
On April 18, federal and local officials in Clarksburg, West Virginia, announced the arrest of a major West Virginia synthetic drug supplier. Operation “Hot Stuff Cool Things” was a multi-agency operation of 70 agents that used a Virtual Command Center (VCC) on the Law Enforcement Online (LEO) network to share information about the ongoing case. Subsequently, the owner of the Clarksburg and Buckhannon stores Hot Stuff Cool Things and three other individuals were arrested on multiple federal drug charges by a task force that included the Drug Enforcement Administration, Internal Revenue Service, West Virginia State Police, U.S. Marshals Service, Clarksburg Police Department, Bridgeport Police Department, and the Harrison County Sheriff’s Office. During the raid, officers found over $750,000 in cash and bank deposits. The U.S. Attorney said that millions of dollars of bath salts (a synthetic drug commonly used as a cocaine substitute) had moved through the stores in the last year.

In the modern law enforcement environment, agencies need to share information, collaborate, and join forces to combat crime and terrorism. Often they need to post, track, and spread information across departments and jurisdictions in a quick, secure way for an investigation or for a major occurrence. To satisfy this need for safe, inclusive communication, the LEO Operations Unit created the VCC capability in 2002. The LEO VCC is a situational awareness and/or crisis management tool used to share information about street-level and tactical activities among law enforcement operations centers and command posts. Since its inception, the VCC has been used by numerous agencies for local, national, and international events ranging from major case management to global events like presidential inaugurations.

Because the VCC resides on LEO, it is extremely flexible and can be used or viewed from multiple geographic locations. This makes it feasible for federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies to create joint efforts in investigations and law enforcement actions. The VCC exists on a secure system for any designated audience members online, not just those physically present at an event or a “brick and mortar” command center. Through the VCC, law enforcement can effectively manage a tactical incident in real time, 24/7, with both operational and technical support. As the VCC receives and posts relevant information and intelligence, it provides a comprehensive account of an incident or event to designated law enforcement channels.

The VCC provides an events board feature that permits information posts as an event occurs and allows listing of data such as photographs, scanned documents, or any information that would be useful to managing an event or crisis. Agencies hosting the VCC can permit access to individual persons or entire agencies as needed. Even critical incident managers, such as emergency planners, can now have remote access to a crisis without having to be on-scene. Recent enhancements to the VCC capability include the ability to display incidents by specific dates or times, improved refresh rates on the screens, and improved critical real-time monitoring of operations.

The FBI and the law enforcement community as a whole have benefited from the increased ability to share vital information and collaborate—even over previously unmanageable locality impediments—by the creation of the VCC. In 2011, LEO members created over 300 new VCCs and opened over 700 VCC event boards to collect, record, and securely publish information. As an indication of its effectiveness and adaptability, the law enforcement community has used the VCC not only during kidnappings, shootings, and special investigations, but also during major events such as NASCAR races, Republican and Democratic National Conventions, a presidential inauguration, the Super Bowl, the Pro Bowl, the Academy Awards, and the Hurricane Katrina relief effort.”

“Duncan Duane Hunter (born December 7, 1976) is an American politician and member of the Republican Party from California who has represented San Diego County in the United States House of Representatives since 2009, representing California’s 50th congressional district. The district, numbered as the 52nd district from 2009 to 2013, covers almost all of San Diego County except for the coastal and border areas. It includes the cities of Escondido, San Marcos and Santee as well as Fallbrook, Lakeside and Valley Center and mountain and desert areas stretching to the Imperial County line.

The day after the September 11 attacks, Hunter quit his job and joined the United States Marine Corps. He attended Officer Candidates School at Marine Corps Base Quantico. Upon graduation in March 2002, he was commissioned as a second lieutenant. He subsequently served as a field artillery officer in the 1st Marine Division after the 2003 invasion of Iraq and completed a second tour in Fallujah, Iraq, in 2004, serving in Battery A, 1st Battalion, 11th Marines. During his second tour, he participated in Operation Vigilant Resolve.

In September 2005, Hunter was honorably discharged from active duty but remained in the Marine Corps Reserve. He then started a residential development company. In 2007, he was recalled to active duty and deployed to Afghanistan in support of the War in Afghanistan; this was his third tour of duty during the War on Terrorism. Hunter was honorably discharged from active duty in December 2007, but continues to serve in the Marine Corps Reserve.[9][10] Hunter was promoted to major in 2012.[11][12]

Following in the footsteps of his father, Hunter’s voting record has been decidedly conservative. He has a lifetime rating of 93 from the American Conservative Union. He is also a member of the Republican Study Committee,[32]a caucus of conservative House Republicans of which his father was a longtime member.[citation needed]

In a 2009 interview with KPBS, Hunter expressed support for “overriding” the designation of the delta smelt as an endangered species, saying that overriding it would reduce unemployment in California.[33]

He opposed the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010, saying that it would “take away” the doctor-patient relationship and the right for people to choose “what type of operations they have”, and that it would allow a “government bureaucrat” to make health care decisions for people. In the KPBS interview, Hunter said, “Things that you have problems with now would be exacerbated if you had government-run healthcare.”[34]

At an April 2010 Tea Party movement rally in Ramona, California, Hunter advocated for the deportation of United States citizens who are the children of illegal immigrants.[35]

At the rally, Hunter said, “It’s a complex issue and … you could look and say, ‘You’re a mean guy. That’s a mean thing to do. That’s not a humanitarian thing to do’ … We simply cannot afford what we’re doing right now. We just can’t afford it. California’s going under.” He confirmed the comments to San Diego County’s North County Times, telling the newspaper that he supported House Resolution 1868, a measure that called for the elimination of birthright citizenship in the United States. He expressed support for the controversial 2010 Arizona immigration law, calling it a national security issue and “a fantastic starting point”.[36]

On July 24, 2013, Hunter voted against an amendment offered by Justin Amash to rein in warrantless domestic surveillance conducted by the NSA.[37]

In October 2013 Hunter was the only representative from San Diego County to vote against the bill ending the nation’s 16-day partial government shutdown, explaining that he voted against it because it did not reduce spending or the national debt.[38]

In February 2016, Hunter puffed on an electronic cigarette during a committee hearing, to dramatize his opposition to a proposed federal ban on such “vaping” on airplanes; however, his colleagues on the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee approved the ban.[39]

At a town-hall-style meeting in March 2017, Hunter was confronted by protesters. Before the crowd, Hunter asserted that the American intelligence community was filled with “seditious Obama folks” who “hate Donald Trump as much as you (those at the meeting) do” and are trying to undermine the Trump administration. He also described the American government as “Orwellian”.[40]

Hunter voted in favor of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017.[41] Hunter said that the plan is “good for most states” but “not as good” for California.[42]
