Open letter from the Cloud Centric Crime Scene Investigators ofAbel Danger
March 19, 2018
Dear General Kelly:
Please accept Brief 237 from Field McConnell – United States Marine Corps whistle-blower and Global Operations Director ofAbel Danger(AD) – onSerco’s CAI private equity investors including the late General Alexander Haig, 7th SACEUR and former director of Interneuron Pharmaceuticals, MGM Mirage, AOL and UTC; Yves Fortier, Rhodes Scholar and former Nortel director, and John Macarthur, Canadian-American organizational theorist, Professor of Business Administration and Dean Emeritus of the Harvard Business School, who McConnell claims, organizedSercoagents in the U.K. Cabinet Office’s Emergency Planning College also known as “The Hawkhills” ; U.K./U.S. Teachers pension funds; U.S. Patent and Trademark Office; U.S. Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) and the post-privatization arms of the UK government agency, the Defence Evaluation and Research Agency (DERA), to inject fake news and conceal the use of privately-patented devices for targeted attacks including …
i) The attack on Sergei Skripal, a retired Russian military intelligence colonel who spied for Britain, with powdered Novichok nerve agents allegedly placed in the ventilation system of his BMW and apparently derived from stockpiles in the custody of Bernardine Dohrn’s erstwhile terrorist associates at Northwestern University who have been testingMetal organic frameworks for the catalytic detoxification of chemical warfare nerve agents US20170128761A1forSenior Executive Service(SES) leaders at The Defense Threat Reduction Agency headquartered in Fort Belvoir, Virginia;
ii) The attack on up to 11 people who were treated for nose bleeds and burning sensations after a letter was opened at the Marine Corps headquarters base in Virginia on 27 February 2018 where, apparently, the Novichoc powder had been detoxified by Northwestern University’sMetal organic frameworks for the catalytic detoxification of chemical warfare nerve agents US20170128761A1;
iii) The so-called Amerithrax attacks within the United States over the course of several weeks beginning on September 18, 2001 after letters containing anthrax spores weaponized with Evonik Degussa GmbH’s subsequently-patented Pyrogenic silicon dioxide powder and dispersion thereof US7534409B2 were mailed to several news media offices and two Democratic U.S. Senators (Tom Daschle and Patrick Leahy), killing 5 people and infecting 17 others.
McConnell claims that Serco’s CAI private equity group appears to have appointed Bob Paulson and Brenda Lucki as past and present Commissioners of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police to manipulate public perceptions of phony investigations into the serial killings of up to 60 aboriginal women at the Pickton pig farm in British Columbia between 1996 and 2002; the online gaming, pay-per-view snuff-film and child-pornography operations of Starnet Communications in Vancouver between 1996 and 1999; the alleged United Nations peacekeepers’ operation of a child sex ring in Haiti from 2004 to 2007, and the apparent attempt by Clinton friend Laura Silsby – arrested at the Haitian border after the Haitian Earthquake of 2010 with 9 other co-conspirators – to smuggle 33 children out of the country without documentation whereupon Bill Clinton brokered a deal to get 8 of traffickers released and Silsby’s sentence reduced to 6 months of jail time.
McConnell claims thatSerco’s CAI private equity group appears to be using Dr. Pamela Drew –Sercodirector and former Assistant Professor of Computer Science at the Hong Kong University of Science (1992-1996) – to mentor patentee projects at Boeing Phantom Works, Northrop Grumman, TASC and ITT Exelis on the federal bridge certification authority (FBCA) networks and inject the fake news which has allegedly allowed the Greek Life associates of Bill Clinton (Phi Beta Kappa) and Wilbur Ross (Kappa Beta Phi) to conceal betting on body counts at mass-casualty events with Howard Lutnick’sReal-time interactive wagering on event outcomes CA 2460367 Aand various online patented devices including:
1. QinetiQ North America Inc’sSocial Engineering Protection Appliance US9123027B2allegedly used by Serco agents at the Hawkhills to inject fake news and media plays at crime scenes and apply censorship rules or ridicule to neutralize truth seekers;
2. Certicom Corp’s (Now Blackberry) Elliptic curve random number generation US8396213B2 allegedly used by Maureen Baginski, Vice President ofSerco’s Intelligence Services and former FBI’s Executive Assistant Director for Intelligence to conceal murder for hire and money laundering for theSenior Executive Service;
3. US Secretary of Navy’sOnion routing network for securely moving data through communication networks US6266704B1to protect Internet initiators and responders against both eavesdropping and traffic analysis by the Marine Corps Intelligence Activity;
4. Nortel’sMethod for efficient management of certificate revocation lists and update information US 5699431 Ato stand down security prior to the spoliation of evidence of murder for hire, assassination and sabotage;
5. Motorola’sRemote control and location system US6148196Ato deploy patsies suitably medicated for homicide or suicide with psychotropic drugs; and,
6.Two-way wireless system for financial industry transactions US 6539362 B1to ‘drift’ proceeds of crimes including Clinton body-count wagering, dead-peasant life insurance, murder for hire, money laundering, drug-induced snuff film production (cf. Starnet Communications and the BC Pig Farm) and child pornography into Marcy’s DOJ Asset Forfeiture Funds and various accounts of Con Air junket operators, promoters (late Stephen Paddock!) and players networked bySercoCAI.
McConnell claims thatSercois using McConnell’s sister Kristine Marcy, the founder of the U.S.Senior Executive Service(SES), a USMS prisoner medical-services program and Con Air (JPATS); Steve Wadey, QinetiQ CEO and the former technical director for MBDA’s parent group, jointly owned by Airbus Group, BAE Systems and Finmeccanica (FADEC patents!); and, Oliver ‘Buck’ Revell, former Marine Corps Captain and the former Executive Director (SES-6) for FBI Criminal Investigative, Counter-Terrorism and Counter-Intelligence to extort real-time fake news from Qinetiq crime scenes with Vancouver-based Imagis Technologies’ face-recognition software and various patented devices including:
a) Con AirPrisoner tracking and warning system and corresponding methods US6054928A
b) Tencent (BVI)’sInstant messaging system and method US20090187835A1to feed time stamped body count data to Chinese death pool junkets and Clinton’s Greek Life friends.
McConnell reminds you that Buck Revell (warned bySerco’s Rothschild bankers?) is reported to have pulled his son and daughter-in-law off Pan Am Flight 103 just before takeoff from London’s Heathrow airport at 18:25 hours on 21 December 1988 (after McConnell told his sister how to drone Conair aircraft in the event of a prisoner mutiny) and saved them from aSMEAC*bombing event over Lockerbie, Scotland at 19:02:50 with a body count of 270 = 243 passengers + 16 crew + 11 people on the ground.
*Serco‘s digital fires instructors at USMC Base Camp Pendleton have allegedly corrupted the Marine Corps SMEAC briefing protocols into Situation, Mission, Execution, Ambush, Cover-up!
With this, the 237th Kelly public briefing, we have given ample opportunities for Con Air Marcy and Serco agents to rebut our allegations of fraud upon patentees registered at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office including Blackberry, Northwestern University, Qinetiq North America, the US Secretary of Navy, Howard Lutnick, Tencent (BVI), Motorola, Nortel, Boeing, ITT Exelis (HQ in WTC#7!), and their extorted roles in assassinations, murder for hire and mass-casualty events.
We now ask you to have McConnell’s sister Kristine “Con Air” Marcy; the twoSercodirectors Dr. Pamela “Phantom Works” Drew and Maureen “Back Door” Baginski; Bernardine “Torture Paradigms & Practice” Dohrn and Steve “QinetiQ Fake News” Wadey, questioned in re fake news, media plays and spoliation of evidence of body-count betting on the federal bridge and have former Marine Corps Captain, Oliver ‘Buck’ Revell charged in the appropriate court under 18 U.S.C. § 2382 – Misprision of treason or 18 U.S.C. § 1958 – Murder-for-hire.

A major focus in the early years of the investigation was a bio-weapons expert named Steven Hatfill, who was eventually exonerated. Another suspect, Bruce Edwards Ivins, became a focus of investigation around April 4, 2005. Ivins was a scientist who worked at the government’s biodefense labs at Fort Detrick in Frederick, Maryland. On April 11, 2007, Ivins was put under periodic surveillance and an FBI document stated that “Bruce Edwards Ivins is an extremely sensitive suspect in the 2001 anthrax attacks.” On July 29, 2008, Ivins committed suicide with an overdose of acetaminophen.“
An elliptic curve random number generator avoids escrow keys by choosing a point Q on the elliptic curve as verifiably random. An arbitrary string is chosen and a hash of that string computed. The hash is then converted to a field element of the desired field, the field element regarded as the x-coordinate of a point Q on the elliptic curve and the x-coordinate is tested for validity on the desired elliptic curve. If valid, the x-coordinate is decompressed to the point Q, wherein the choice of which is the two points is also derived from the hash value. Intentional use of escrow keys can provide for back up functionality. The relationship between P and Q is used as an escrow key and stored by for a security domain. The administrator logs the output of the generator to reconstruct the random number with the escrow key.
The strange connection between the NSA and an Ontario tech firm

PUBLISHED JANUARY 20, 2014UPDATED MARCH 25, 2017
At the heart of digital security is the concept of encryption – making information indecipherable to anyone who doesn’t have the right passcode. …
For years, many wondered why the NIST in America and CSEC in Canada would continue to give their official blessing to a compromised algorithm. Last year, a potential answer to that question emerged, when documents leaked by Edward Snowden revealed the NSA to be a holder of the Dual_EC secret keys – essentially, allowing the spy agency to crack the encryption at will. In addition, a Reuters report in December revealed that the NSA had paid RSA Security LLC $10-million to continue making Dual_EC the default form of encryption on its products.
In BlackBerry’s case, an NIST fact sheet shows the company implemented the algorithm as part of its cryptography toolkit for its BlackBerry 10 Enterprise service, among other products. But BlackBerry’s relationship with Dual_EC is even closer than other companies. In 2009, the company purchased Certicom – in the process acquiring the patent that forms the basis for the Dual_EC algorithm.”

Mr Wadey is currently managing director of MBDA UK, which has 3,000 employees and an annual turnover of about £800m.
He is also technical director for MBDA’s parent group, which is jointly owned by Airbus Group, BAE Systems and Finmeccanica, and has more than 10,000 staff in six countries.
Mark Elliott, chairman of QinetiQ, said: “We are delighted that Steve has agreed to join QinetiQ. We were looking for an outstanding leader with a track record of driving growth, a deep understanding of the defence industry and the technological know-how to lead QinetiQ in the next stage of its [growth] strategy.
“Steve fits all these criteria and is respected across the Ministry of Defence and the European defence sector.”
Mr Wadey also holds an influential position in UK industry, having co-chaired the Defence Growth Partnership with Business and Enterprise Minister Matthew Hancock since 2013.
The partnership aims to secure Britain’s defence industry’s future by bringing government and commerce together to work on and develop new technologies, identify new opportunities and ensure UK companies have in place products that will be in demand.
Mr Wadey is a qualified engineer and has previously worked at BAE. He said: “I know QinetiQ well having worked in partnership with the company on both joint contracts and through the DGP.
“The expertise of its people is held in high regard throughout the industry and I look forward to working with them all as we develop and grow QinetiQ to meet changing customer needs in both defence and commercial markets.”
He will take up the post on April 27 on a salary of £560,000, with interim chief executive David Mellors returning to is role as chief financial officer.”
In 2001, when defence minister Lewis Moonie announced the creation of QinetiQ, on privatisation of the Defence Evaluation and Research Agency, he said that it would remain a British business based in the UK.

“Catalyst Destroys Common Toxic Nerve Agents Quickly
Material could be used one day to destroy stockpiles of deadly chemical weapons
EVANSTON, Ill. — Northwestern University scientists have developed a robust new material, inspired by biological catalysts, that is extraordinarily effective at destroying toxic nerve agents that are a threat around the globe. First used 100 years ago during World War I, deadly chemical weapons continue to be a challenge to combat.
The material, a zirconium-based metal-organic framework (MOF), degrades in minutes one of the most toxic chemical agents known to mankind: Soman (GD), a more toxic relative of sarin. Computer simulations show the MOF should be effective against other easy-to-make agents, such as VX.
The catalyst is fast and effective under a wide range of conditions, and the porous MOF structure can store a large amount of toxic gas as the catalyst does its work. These features make the material promising for use in protective equipment worn by soldiers, such as gas masks, and for destroying stockpiles of chemical weapons, such as those currently building up in Syria.
“This designed material is very thermally and chemically robust, and it doesn’t care what conditions it is in,” said chemist Omar K. Farha, who led the research. “The material can be in water or a very humid environment, at a temperature of 130 degrees or minus 15, or in a dust storm. A soldier should not need to worry about under what conditions his protective mask will work. We can put this new catalyst in rugged conditions, and it will work just fine.”
MOFs are very porous, so they can capture, store and destroy a lot of the nasty material, Farha said, making them very attractive for defense-related applications.
The study, the first to demonstrate zirconium MOFs as effective weapons against nerve agents, will be published March 16 by the journal Nature Materials.
“Simple changes to the nerve agent’s molecular structure can change something that can kill a human into something harmless,” said Farha, a research professor of chemistry in the Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences. “GD and VX are not very sophisticated agents, but they are very toxic. With the correct chemistry, we can render toxic materials nontoxic.”
Metal-organic frameworks are well-ordered, lattice-like crystals. The nodes of the lattices are metals, and organic molecules connect the nodes. Within their very roomy pores, MOFs can effectively capture gases, such as nerve agents.
The Northwestern MOF, called NU-1000, has nodes of zirconium — the active catalytic site where all the important chemistry takes place. The organic ligand gives the material its important structure by connecting the nodes, but it does not participate in the catalysis of the nerve agent.
The zirconium node selectively clips the phosphate-ester bond in the nerve agent, rendering it innocuous. With the critical bond broken, the rest of the molecule is left alone. The bond is broken through the process of hydrolysis, a reaction involving the breaking of a molecule’s bond using water. The MOF can use the humidity in the air.
In their study, the researchers first tested their catalyst against a GD simulant, called DMNP, and found the MOF degraded half of the target in less than 1.5 minutes. Next, they tested the MOF against GD and found the catalyst degraded half of the nerve agent in less than three minutes. These half-lives are very impressive, Farha said, and show how well the catalyst is working.
They also tested the zirconium cluster alone, without the cluster being in the MOF structure, and the catalyst was not as effective at degrading the nerve agent. This shows the importance of the MOF scaffold.
The research team’s experimental and computational results suggest that the extraordinary activity of NU-1000 comes from the unique zirconium node and the MOF structure that allows the material to engage with more of the nerve agent and to destroy it. The researchers expect the MOF to be effective against other easy-to-make chemical warfare agents with phosphate-ester bonds, such as VX.
NU-1000 is inspired by the enzyme phosphotriesterase, which is found in bacteria. The natural enzyme has two zinc ions bridged by a hydroxyl group as the active catalytic site. Farha and his colleagues wanted to make a much more potent and stable catalyst, so they used zirconium ions instead of zinc.
“We are learning from nature, but trying to do better by making more robust materials,” “Farha said. “The natural enzyme does precisely the same chemistry, but its lifetime is very short — it cannot survive under the conditions soldiers are deployed in.”
Even though the synthetic catalyst yields the same weapons-degradation product as the enzyme, it does so by a means that is much less dependent on the exact structure and composition of the chemical weapon target. The next step, therefore, is to determine the extent to which the artificial catalyst functions as a broad-spectrum catalyst.
Farha added, “Our catalyst is fantastic compared to other catalysts, but there is still more work to be done.”
The work was supported by the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (grant HDTRA-1-10-0023) and the U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Basic Energy Sciences (award DE-FG02-12ER16362).
The paper is titled “Destruction of Chemical Warfare Agents Utilizing Metal–Organic Frameworks.”

Hupp, from Northwestern; William C. Isley III and Christopher J. Cramer, from the University of Minnesota; George W. Wagner, Morgan G. Hall and Gregory W.

“Project Inspire – Site rationalisation programme
27. The aim of the site rationalisation programme is to achieve more effective working between staff, originally spread over 15 different sites. After detailed study, the Dstl Board decided to rationalise Dstl’s activities onto three core sites-Porton Down, Fort Halstead and Portsdown West with an enclave at Alvestoke) by 2009. The plan was approved by Ministers in November 2003.
28. Following this, Dstl set up a project to cover the construction needed at Porton Down and Portsdown West to achieve the 3 core site plan and the provision of facilities management for these sites. An invitation to tender for the contract was produced, a preferred bidder selected and detailed contract negotiations concluded.
29. Prior to Serco’s appointment as Preferred Bidder on 10th August 2005 the tender evaluation had resulted in a clear understanding of the 3 bidders’ proposals and how they would impact upon Dstl in due diligence and beyond. As a result the 15-year facilities management contract was awarded toSercoDefence and Aerospace on 24th July 2006.”
“Prisoner tracking and warning system and corresponding methods US6054928A
A system and method for tracking, monitoring and learning prisoner or parolee behavior involves obtaining prisoner or parolee data and monitoring data for at least one individual prisoner or parolee, storing the prisoner or parolee data and monitored data into a database, learning prisoner or parolee behavior from the prisoner or parolee data and the monitored data in the database, and updating the prisoner or parolee data and the monitored data in the database. Expert system (i.e. including but not limited to fuzzy logic, reinforcement learning, neural networks, artificial intelligence, etc.) algorithms are executed for determining and analyzing deviated behavior by the prisoner or parolee. A parole level is assigned to the prisoner or parolee and it is determined whether the prisoner or parolee is to be moved up or down a parole level depending on whether the prisoner or parolee behavior does not constitute or does constitute prisoner or parolee violations. Furthermore, the system tracks, monitors, and learns the behavior of the prisoner or parolee by controlling and regulating the permitted/prohibited locations or sectors, the permitted/prohibited location or sector dwell times, the permitted/prohibited travel routes, the permitted/prohibited travel times that the prisoner or parolee spends at or between various locations.
A system for transmitting instructions from a master control facility (50) to a number of remotely located player units (11-14). The remotely located player units communicate through a mobile cell site (10). Cellular communication links (16) are provided to link the remote units (11-14) to cell site (10). Cell site (10) is linked to a satellite arrangement (20) via a communication link (21). The master control facility is linked to the satellite arrangement via communication link (23).
…. BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
The present invention pertains to communications systems and more particularly to remote control and location of elements in particular remote areas.
For monitoring and controlling elements and events from a remote area to a control center point-to-point fixed communications by wire line or radio frequency (RF) devices is employed. Data is often transmitted from the remote area to the control center where it is processed and displayed. Subsequently, commands for the elements or events may be transmitted back from the control center to the remote area via control devices on these point-to-point communications. Such conditions often required that control centers be located in proximity to the events and elements they were monitoring. Monitoring events and elements in many locations often required many control centers which may be linked through elaborate networks.
Examples of such systems with the above characteristics include military training ranges, prisoner monitoring, asset monitoring and police and fire coordination efforts. People participating in or controlling events or elements requiring monitoring for movement, etc. may include a communication device such as a radio for transmitting and receiving information from a control center or an RF activated device for monitoring the movement of elements.
The operation of such control centers are typically to gather information from sensors or personnel; process this information; and relay some command or activity back to the transmitting person or element. Often in fixed bounded areas it is highly desirable for the control center to know the location of the person or element to be instructed. For example, applying these requirements to the situations mentioned above may include the movement and monitoring of battle results for soldiers in a training range; location monitoring and control of prisoners; asset monitoring and management for transportation in warehouse operations; asset monitoring throughout movement; control of and coordination of police efforts at particular events and control of fire fighters in a coordinated effort to fight particular fires.
The greater the number of remote locations the control center has to monitor, the greater the problems of these communications. This is particularly true where events might happen worldwide and require common analysis and control.
Accordingly, it would be advantageous to have a common control center for monitoring, controlling and locating people and elements within particular bounded areas and provide a communication link for return instructions or commands.
The City of London Police has closed an investigation into Serco’s prisoner transport contract after more than a year of work, enabling the firm to continue with the contract until 2018.
The Ministry of Justice called in the police in August 2013 to examine whether Serco had misleadingly recorded prisoners as being ready for court when they were not, in order to meet the performance criteria of the contract.
However, Serco said on Friday that the probe into the Prisoner Escort and Custody Services (PECS) contract had been closed after the police found no evidence to support bringing charges against the outsourcing firm or its staff.
“The information obtained was also sufficient for the City of London Police to conclude there was no evidence of any corporate-wide conspiracy or an intention to falsify figures to meet the DRACT [designated ready and available for court time] contract requirement by senior Serco management or at the board level of the company,” the firm said in a statement.
The Ministry of Justice had said it would end the contract immediately if the firm’s board was found to have done wrong.”

“DXer said July 7, 2017 at 8:23 am Is it fair to say that the FBI [Robert Mueller] had known since 2001 that Rauf Ahmad had presented at the Porton Down conference on his isolation of anthrax? If it takes years for the FBI to retrieve even the contemporaneous notes from Bruce Ivins’ relevant notebook, what’s the likelihood that it even had the documents relating to this presentation by Ayman Zawahiri’s infiltrating scientist, let alone have it in a storage in a manner retrievable by the relevant analyst. The FBI’s inability to “connect the dots” relates to its collection and management of information, and its ability to retrieve and organize that information. In Amerithrax, that ability was totally destroyed by compartmentalization. CYA instincts reared their head in numerous ways.

“Prior to SBA, [Field McConnell’s sister]Ms.[Kristine]Marcy served in several roles at the Department of Justice, including Senior Counsel for Detention and Deportation at the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS), where she oversaw the full range of INS detention and deportation programs and addressed multiple infrastructure and management problems stemming from rapid growth (up 45 percent) in the detention program. Prior to her position at INS, Ms. Marcy served for five years as the Associate Director for Operations Support of the Department of Justice, U.S. Marshals Service (USMS). There, she directed DOJ’s detention program for more than 23,000 prisoners (the nation’s largest). In 1995, she was assigned responsibility by the Attorney General for developing a DOJ-wide transportation system [Con Air] known as the Justice Prisoner and Alien Transportation System, or JPATS-a nationwide network of leased commercial and government-owned aircraft and ground vehicles. While at the USMS, she also developed a prisoner medical services program and directed the agency’s $1.6 billion seized assets program that redirected proceeds forfeited by criminals and crime organizations to local and Federal law enforcement. Prior to the USMS, she was the Associate Deputy Attorney General for the Department of Justice, where she served as a lawyer who prepared the Deputy Attorney General for duties related to budget and appropriations, executive personnel, and other management areas. She also oversaw activities of the Justice Management Division, Bureau of Prisons, Office of Justice Programs, the Inspector General, and the U.S. Trustees (bankruptcy program).”

“But it is in China that Haig has carved out a special niche as a door opener for American companies. The general has been a steadfast advocate for China ever since he led the advance team for President Nixon’s historic 1972 visit. Later, as secretary of state, he earned the respect of the Chinese leadership by holding fast against the powerful Taiwan lobby in Washington. (He saw China as a useful ally in the struggle against the Soviet Union.) Haig continues to speak out for Beijing in his present role. Perhaps the most striking example came when he turned up at Tiananmen Square on October 1, 1989 — four months after the notorious crackdown — to mark the 40th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic. The only American to grace the proceedings that evening, Haig knew that the United States and all other Western ambassadors would be boycotting the event, but he shared the podium with Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping, who congratulated him on his courage in appearing.”
“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. 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. … 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. …
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.”
“The five paragraph order or five paragraph field order is a style of organizing information about a military situation for a unit in the field. It is an element of United States Army, United States Marine Corps and United States Navy Seabees of small unit tactics, and similar order styles are used by military groups around the world. An order specifies the instruction to a unit in a structured format that makes it easy to find each specific requirement. The five paragraphs can be remembered with the acronym SMEAC: “S” Situation, “M” Mission, “E” Execution, “A” Administration/Logistics, “C” Command/Signal.”
