General John F. Kelly White House Chief of Staff Washington, D.C. 20528
Open letter from the Cloud Centric Crime Scene Investigators ofAbel Danger
March 21, 2018
Dear General Kelly:
Please accept Brief 238 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 Pierre Lortie, a Special Investor of CAI & Partners and the former President and COO of Bombardier Capital and Bombardier Aerospace Regional Aircraft, who, McConnell claims, allegedly used ConairPrisoner tracking and warning system and corresponding methods US6054928Awith expert-system (including fuzzy logic, reinforcement learning, neural networks, artificial intelligence, etc.) algorithms to leave Evonik Degussa GmbH’s Pyrogenically produced silicon dioxide powder and dispersion thereof US7537833B2 as a crime-scene calling card for attacks onSerco’s enemies with patented weapons of mass destruction (CBRNE – Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and Explosive materials).
TheAbel Dangerresearch team has tracked the custodians of the said weapons throughSerco’s investment banker N M Rothschild & Sons Ltd. andSercoagents in the U.K. Cabinet Office Emergency Planning College also known as “The Hawkhills”; the U.K./U.S. Teachers’ pension funds; the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office; the U.S. Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) and the post-privatization arms of the UK’s Defence Evaluation and Research Agency (DERA), to serial and ongoing CBRNE 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 silicon dioxide powder 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;
iv) The NYC Twin Towers attacks on 9/11 when Alcoa Architectural Products SAS’s subsequently patented Double sheet aluminum panel and method for manufacture thereof was transformed into an UHTA incendiary device in WTC elevator shafts to create a ‘dustification’ effect where entrained water in concrete became superheated steam and supplied a foot-deep layer of fine powder around Lower Manhattan.
McConnell claims thatSerco’s Rothschild bankers and CAI private equity investors appear to have used the system described in an application of the Trustees Of Columbia University In The City Of New York forFriend or foe detection WO2009048599A1to select Bob Paulson and Brenda Lucki as past and present Commissioners of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police who would sabotage crime scene 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 (1996-1999); the alleged U.N. 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 allegedly allowed the Greek Life associates of Bill Clinton (Phi Beta Kappa) and Wilbur Ross (Kappa Beta Phi and 25 years with N M Rothschild & Sons Ltd!) to conceal betting on body counts at WMD/mass-casualty events with Howard Lutnick’sReal-time interactive wagering on event outcomes CA 2460367 Aand online patented devices including:
1. QinetiQ North America Inc’s Social Engineering Protection Appliance US9123027B2 allegedly used bySercoagents at the Hawkhills to inject fake news and media plays at crime scenes and apply Con Air algorithmic 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 thatSercoplaced 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) and Dr. Pamela Drew –Sercodirector and former Assistant Professor of Computer Science at the Hong Kong University of Science (1992-1996) – as mentors of patentee operations by Boeing Phantom Works, Northrop Grumman, TASC and ITT Exelis on the federal bridge certification authority (FBCA) networks and allowed Oliver ‘Buck’ Revell, former Marine Corps Captain and former Executive Director (SES-6) for FBI Criminal Investigative, Counter-Terrorism and Counter-Intelligence to track crime scene actors with Vancouver-based Imagis Technologies’ face-recognition s/w and various patented devices including:
a) Tencent (BVI)’sInstant messaging system and method US20090187835A1to feed time stamped body count data to Clinton’s Greek Life friends and their associated Chinese death-pool junkets.
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*(“S” Situation, “M” Mission, “E” Execution, “A” Administration/Logistics, “C” Command/Signal) 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 CorpsSMEACbriefing protocols into Situation, Mission, Execution, Ambush, Cover-up!
With this, the 238th Kelly public briefing, we have given ample opportunities for Con Air Marcy andSercoagents to rebut our allegations of fraud upon patentees registered at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office including Degussa, Northwestern University, Qinetiq North America, Blackberry, the US Secretary of Navy, Howard Lutnick, Tencent (BVI), Motorola, Nortel, Boeing, ITT Exelis (HQ in WTC#7!), and their extorted roles in murder for hire and CBRNE-triggered 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 and Steve “QinetiQ Fake News” Wadey, questioned in re the powder calling cards, media plays and spoliation of evidence for 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.

“Russian spy may have been poisoned via air vents in his BMW, intelligence officials believeRobert Mendick, chief reporter Jack Maidment, political correspondent
18 MARCH 2018 • 1:47PM
Sergei Skripal and his daughter may have been exposed to the nerve agent used in their attempted assassination through the Russian spy’s car ventilation system, intelligence sources have told a US television channel.
ABC News said sources had told it that intelligence officials “now have a clearer picture of just how the attack was conducted”.
Agencies reportedly now believe the toxin – identified as a fourth generation nerve agent called Novichok – was used in a “dust-like powdered form” and that it circulated through the vents of Colonel Skripal’s BMW.”

“CBRNE (pronounced “C-B-R-N-E”) is an acronym for Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and Explosive materials. These materials are very dangerous, and can hurt many people. When they are used on purpose, CBRNE materials are weapons of mass destruction. However, CBRNE events can also happen accidentally. A report from the White House in 2011 said “there is no greater danger to the [United States] than a terrorist attack with a weapon of mass destruction.” Because CBRNE weapons are so dangerous, countries around the world are working on preventing CBRNE attacks, and learning how to react to them if they do happen.“
“The IFF of World War II and Soviet military systems (1946 to 1991) used coded radar signals (called Cross-Band Interrogation, or CBI) to automatically trigger the aircraft’s transponder in an aircraft illuminated by the radar. Radar-based aircraft identification is also called secondary radar in both military and civil usage, with primary radar bouncing an RF pulse off of the aircraft to determine position. George Charrier, working for RCA [RCA GB 1929 became Serco in 1998], filed for a patent for such an IFF device in 1941. It required the operator to perform several adjustments to the radar receiver to suppress the image of the natural echo on the radar receiver, so that visual examination of the IFF signal would be possible.“

“Subject: “Con-Air” in 1/6 San Diego Union Tribune [news article] You won’t need a reservation on this airline — no matter how many travelers flood the airport. .. Call it ConAir and Little knows what you mean. It’s the name the air transport system has picked up inside the U.S. Marshals Service, which flies a fleet of 13 airplanes on regular routes across the country every day. During the past year, the prisoner airline spent $24 million moving more than 100,000 federal inmates — including 12,000 from San Diego — to and from trials, prisons and medical centers nationwide. … Among the most infamous of its recent travelers were Unabomber suspect Theodore Kaczynski and the men accused in the bombing of the Oklahoma City federal building, Terry Nichols and Timothy McVeigh. Nichols and McVeigh were transported in the dead of night in an operation much akin to a clandestine military operation, Little said. He did not want to go into details but mentioned that a decoy plane was among the ploys used to guard against possible attempts by supporters to free the suspects.
Federal officials have always been circumspect about the fine points of prisoner movement. But ConAir soon could gain a higher public profile with the planned release in June of a movie by the same name. In the Disney film, Nicolas Cage plays a hapless prisoner who wanders into a hijack plot aboard a Marshals Service plane carrying a group of high-security inmates.
The Hollywood marshals rough up some of the prisoners, and the plane crashes, leaving the real Marshals Service frowning on the silver screen’s invention, said Kristine Marcy, a top official in charge of detentions. … Prisoners — mostly people being held for entering the country with false documents — are flown from San Diego to Las Vegas, where they are housed in the city jail. They are flown back a few days later for deportation hearings. .. Because of the San Diego jail space problem, there was no holiday break here for ConAir. While flights in other parts of the country were cut back during the Christmas season, San Diego continued its rigorous schedule of two flights every weekday and one each Saturday and Sunday.
Marcy said the air transportation system inspires a high level of commitment in its personnel. “People are always willing to be on standby or to work overtime,” she said, noting that the planes are not always used for prisoner transport. After a hurricane flattened parts of the Virgin Islands last year, the prisoner transportation system flew in some of the first reinforcements to help establish law and order, she said.
After the Oklahoma City bombing, the airline flew evidence to the FBI crime laboratory in Washington, D.C., she said.
With planes crisscrossing the country, traveling through multiple time zones and even venturing around the globe, scheduling and tracking have gone high-tech. It’s all accomplished from a scheduling center in Kansas City, Mo., referred to as the “travel agency” for ConAir. It handles up to 500 electronic requests for flights each day, federal officials say.
Flight tracking begins an hour before the first plane takes off. Throughout the day, employees monitor the movements of every plane until the last craft is safely on the ground.
On board, a crew of deputy U.S. marshals, aviation enforcement officers and contract guards keeps order in the rear of the plane. Passengers are loaded under high security at a remote area of an airport. Seat assignments are not optional.
The planes fly out of a hub in Oklahoma City, the center of the country, making large loops east and west, dropping off and picking up passengers as they land at 40 major cities.
The planes also loop along separate West Coast and East Coast circuits.
.. He said jail cells, which generally are rented by the Marshals Service to hold federal prisoners until they are sentenced to a long-term facility, can cost up to $100 a night on the East Coast, while in Texas or Louisiana the cost of a cell might run as low as $35 a night.
“You make up the cost of moving a prisoner pretty quickly at that rate,” Little said.
He said other reasons for moving prisoners include the need to separate gang members or suspects testifying against each other.
ConAir also moves inmates for the federal Bureau of Prisons, which may want to transfer someone from a high-to low-security facility.
Higher-security prison space is most expensive, Little explained, so prison authorities like to quickly move people who do not need the extra supervision.”
“Prisoner tracking and warning system and corresponding methods US6054928A Abstract 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.
“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).”

“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.”

“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 to Serco Defence and Aerospace on 24th July 2006.”
“Police drop investigation into Serco prisoner transport contract
The outsourcing group said there was no evidence of individual or corporate wrongdoing
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.

“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.”
