Kelly 242: Serco’s Chicago Novichok Toyshop, Clinton’s Con Air Princess Di Wagering, SES Phantom Facebook Buck
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
March 27, 2018
Dear General Kelly:
Please accept Brief 242 from Field McConnell – United States Marine Corps whistle-blower and Global Operations Director of Abel Danger (AD) – on the late Victor Rothschild’s colleagues at Serco’s investment banker N M Rothschild & Sons Ltd. who allegedly sent Churchill grandson Nicholas Soames in 1976 to establish a pedophile ring in Washington where leaders of the U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee could be blackmailed into funding a Chicago-based Churchill’s Toyshop for the deployment of improvised and patented CBRNE weapons including Unabombs and Novichok nerve agents, against the enemies of Serco shareholders including the UK MoD and Alien Property Custodian, Northern Trust, and enemies of Serco’s CAI private-equity investors including the late Gen. Alexander Haig, 7th SACEUR, former director of MGM Mirage, AOL and UTC; Yves Fortier, Rhodes Scholar and former Nortel director; John Macarthur, a Canadian organizational theorist and Dean Emeritus of Harvard Business School and Pierre Lortie, the former COO of Bombardier Aerospace Regional Aircraft.
McConnell claims that Nicholas Soames procured a film of McConnell’s sister Kristine Marcy, a former budget examiner in the Office of Management and Budget and former Senior Counsel for the US Marshalls Service, in a Mendenhall’s Baby oath ritual in 1978 and subsequently forced her to transfer control of ConAir (JPATS) SWAT teams to the Greek Life associates of Bill Clinton (Phi Beta Kappa) and Wilbur Ross (Kappa Beta Phi, 25 years at N M Rothschild!).
McConnell claims alleged that Clinton insiders used Howard Lutnick’s subsequently-patented Real-time interactive wagering on event outcomes CA 2460367 A to bet on the time of Princess Diana’s death as her Mercedes was guided into the 13th pillar of the Pont d’Alma road tunnel in Paris on August 31, 1997 with a Boston Brakes system apparently derived from Boeing’s Intervention flight management system .. Control of position, course or altitude of land, water, air, or space vehicles .. transition from automatic pilot to manual pilot and vice versa Original Assignee Boeing Co 1993-01-13 EP0256564B1 Grant.
Abel Danger’s research has tracked the Toyshop weapons used in real or threatened CBRNE attacks over the last 40 years through Serco’s investment banker N M Rothschild & Sons Ltd.; Boeing Phantom Works; the U.S. DOJ Asset Forfeiture Fund; the U.K. Cabinet Office Emergency Planning College, “The Hawkhills”; the U.K./U.S. Teachers’ pension funds; the U.S. Senior Executive Service; 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).
McConnell claims that Marcy’s SES colleagues at The Defense Threat Reduction Agency HQ in Fort Belvoir, Virginia, used Nortel’s Joint Automated Booking System (JABS) to book the recent attack on Sergei Skripal, a retired Russian military intelligence colonel who spied for Britain, whose BMW ventilation system was allegedly seeded by a ConAir SWAT team with a powdered Novichok nerve agent derived from the Chicago Toyshop and Northwestern University’s Metal organic frameworks for the catalytic detoxification of chemical warfare nerve agents US20170128761A1.
McConnell claims that prior to the attacks of 9/11, Marcy transferred control of the U.S. Senior Executive Service (SES), the DOJ Asset Forfeiture Fund, the USMS prisoner medical services and the ConAir SWAT teams to the federal bridge certification authority (FBCA) network where Serco director Dr. Pamela Drew, former Assistant Professor of Computer Science at the Hong Kong University of Science, could mentor operations through Boeing Phantom Works out of Boeing’s new headquarters in Chicago.
McConnell claims that Serco positioned Oliver ‘Buck’ Revell, former Marine Corps Captain and former Executive Director (SES-6) for FBI Criminal Investigative, Counter-Terrorism and Counter-Intelligence, as a consultant to the UK’s National Crime Squad (NCS) where he could use pedophile images acquired through Facebook to silence witnesses and crime-scene investigators and ensure they never exposed Serco’s Chicago Toyshop and its use of devices including:
1. Conair Prisoner tracking and warning system and corresponding methods US6054928A with expert-system (i.e. including fuzzy logic, reinforcement learning, neural networks, artificial intelligence, etc.) algorithms;
2. Evonik Degussa GmbH’s Pyrogenically produced silicon dioxide powder and dispersion thereof US7537833B2 used as a calling card for attacks on Serco enemies with skyjacked aircraft carrying patented weapons of mass destruction (CBRNE – Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and Explosive materials);
3. QinetiQ North America Inc’s Social Engineering Protection Appliance US9123027B2 allegedly used by Serco agents at the Hawkhills to inject fake news and media plays at skyjack crime scenes and apply ConAir algorithmic censorship rules to neutralize truth seekers;
4. Nortel’s Method for efficient management of certificate revocation lists and update information US 5699431 A to stand down security prior to the spoliation of evidence of skyjacking murder for hire;
5. Motorola’s Remote control and location system US6148196A to deploy patsy skyjackers suitably medicated for homicide or suicide with psychotropic drugs;
6. Tencent (BVI)’s Instant messaging system and method US20090187835A1 to feed time stamped body count data to Clinton’s Greek Life friends and their associated Chinese death-pool junkets
7. Trustees Of Columbia University In The City Of New York for Friend or foe detection WO2009048599A1
8. Two-way wireless system for financial industry transactions US 6539362 B1 to ‘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 ConAir junket operators, promoters (late Stephen Paddock!) and players networked by Serco CAI.
McConnell reminds you that Buck Revell (warned by Serco’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 (a few weeks after McConnell told his sister how to drone ConAir aircraft in the event of a prisoner mutiny) and saved them from a SMEAC* 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 242nd Kelly public briefing and references at http://www.abeldanger.org, we have given ample opportunities for ConAir Marcy and Serco agents to rebut our allegations of fraud upon patentees registered at Serco’s Chicago Toyshop, or, more formally, at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office including Boeing Phantom Works, Northwestern University, Degussa, Qinetiq North America, Blackberry, the US Secretary of Navy, Howard Lutnick, Tencent (BVI), Motorola, Nortel, 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 “ConAir” Marcy; the two Serco directors Dr. Pamela “Phantom Works” Drew and Maureen “Back Door” Baginski questioned in re the Chicago Toyshop and the 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.

“‘Accidents can happen’: Warning to Diana from Prince Charles’s friend
Prince Charles’s friend Nicholas Soames threatened Diana six months before her death and warned her to stop meddling in a controversy over landmines, the inquest heard yesterday.
By RICHARD PALMER ROYAL CORRESPONDENT
PUBLISHED: 00:00, Thu, Dec 13, 2007
The jury was told that Diana’s friend Simone Simmons had listened in on a telephone conversation at the Princess’s invitation in February 1997 and heard the then Armed Forces Minister warn her “accidents can happen”.
Jurors heard that Diana became embroiled in political controversy after fronting a Red Cross campaign to bring in an international ban on landmines at a time when the British government wanted an exemption for its forces.
Several senior figures in the then Tory administration spoke out against the Princess, accusing her of being a “loose cannon” and interfering in party politics at a time when Labour favoured the ban – and later brought it in.
My husband was an equerry for many years and knew a lot about the Royal Family and he knew how the rules operate, and I don’t think Diana realised it
Mr Soames, Tory MP for Mid-Sussex, has been a friend of Prince Charles since they were both boys. He went on television in November 1995 to denounce Diana as “paranoid” when she complained about people in the Prince’s camp being out to get her.
But he told the inquest that he had never made a threatening phone call to her or ever discussed the landmines issue with her. “It’s a really grotesque suggestion,” he said.
Michael Mansfield, QC, cross-examining Mr Soames on behalf of Mohamed Al Fayed, told him that he had “a very distinctive voice”, and that Ms Simmons was sure it was he who made the threatening phone call.
Mr Soames, whom Diana is alleged to have feared, said he now regretted portraying her as paranoid, even though he had thought she had been “way off beam”, and wanted to defend the heir to the throne.
Although he never apologised publicly, he said he had made his peace with the Princess after she wrote him a nice letter before she died.
The inquest earlier heard that Princess Diana was obsessed by fears that she was being bugged and an “accident” might befall her as the Royal Family began to ostracise her.
Raine, Countess Spencer, said her stepdaughter often spoke of her fears, which were more pronounced as she became distanced from the Royal Family’s inner circle.
She revealed for the first time that Diana’s sister, Lady Jane Fellowes, wrote to the Princess saying she could not see her again because her husband, Robert, was the Queen’s private secretary.
“Once divorce from Charles was on the cards, she was going to be shut out.
“My husband was an equerry for many years and knew a lot about the Royal Family and he knew how the rules operate, and I don’t think Diana realised it,” she said.
Lady Spencer told the inquest jury that she always assumed Diana was right about the bugging, that all royal palaces and homes were monitored.
“She thought her telephones were bugged and her house was bugged and she was being watched,” she said.
But Diana also feared for her life. “She was quite obsessed with the idea of accidents in general, primarily involving the Prince of Wales.
“She often mentioned helicopter accidents, never an accident involving a car,” she said.
Lady Spencer thought the soothsayers and fortune tellers Diana sought solace from might have “enlarged” and heightened her fears.
She wondered why one of them had not predicted Diana’s demise but was told by Michael Mansfield, QC, that in fact two had done so.
But the Countess was not aware of specific threats, nor any hostile letters that the Princess was said to have received from Prince Philip after the marriage broke up.”
“SAS Claimed To Be Behind Diana Crash
The Special Air Service (SAS) has been implicated in the death of Diana, Princess of Wales, it has been reported. 
News of 22 SAS’s alleged involvement in Diana’s death surfaced during the recent trial of SAS sniper, Danny Nightingale, who was prosecuted for illegally possession a firearm and ammunition.
The allegations come from the estranged parents-in-law of “Soldier N”, a member of the SAS and a key witness in the case. The parents of Soldier N’s estranged wife wrote a letter to the commander of the SAS in which they claimed that the soldier had revealed to his wife that the SAS were behind the 1997 car crash in Paris that claimed the life of Diana Spencer and Dodi Fayed and that this involvement had been covered up. Royal Military Police handed this letter over to Scotland Yard, who must now decide if this new information warrants re-opening their investigation into the matter.
Conspiracy theories about Diana’s car accident have persisted over the nearly 16 years since the tragic events of August 1997, many of which point the finger at the British intelligence establishment. Various motives have been put forward for the act, including unease about Diana’s high profile campaign against land mines to worries over her close relationship with a Muslim.
While such conspiracy theories can probably be dismissed as wild and unsupported speculation, it may be of interest to examine the who and how of any proposed special forces involvement in the events of the 31st August 1997.
First, lets examine who may have been involved. Given the extreme sensitivity of a plan to assassinate such a high profile figure as Diana, it seems unlikely that such an operation would be arbitrarily assigned to special forces soldiers on regular duties. It seems more likely that such a task would be trusted to elements more deeply secluded within the secret intelligence infrastructure. Luckily, for this little flight of fantasy we are embarking on, there are several such elements that appear to fit the bill.
It’s long been suspected that MI6 – otherwise known as the Secret Intelligence Service or SIS – has operated a secret cadre of operatives known as ‘the Increment'. A mix of serving special forces soldiers and SIS officers, the Increment is rumoured to be the in-house special operations arm of the SIS – and by extension the Foreign Office. The Increment is said to carry out so-called ‘deniable operations’ in support of the Foreign Office around the world. The existence of such a group was given credence by a January 2012 BBC report into the activities during the NATO campaign in Libya of a unit known as ‘E Squadron’, which is noted to be the modern day equivalent of the rumoured Increment cell.
Another shadowy unit, sometimes referred to as ‘Group 13’, is said to be another SIS creation, differing from the Increment in that it recruits former special forces officers rather than those still in active service. This practice may indicate that Group 13 moves in murkier waters than the Increment. The unit have been the subject of conspiracy theories surrounding the deaths of several high profile people including Dr. David Kelly, the Biological weapons expert.
So, assuming, for the sake of speculation, that a unit such as the Increment or Group 13 were somehow involved in Diana’s car crash, the question then becomes: how was it done? Several theories abound about what may have happened.
The first involves that notion that operatives tampered with the Mercedes car that Diana, Dodi, her bodyguard, Trevor Reese-Jones and the driver, Henri Paul were travelling in. The theory goes that the car’s electronic control unit (ECU) or other control(s) would be somehow altered/replaced to allow for remote interference, including disabling the brakes, taking over the steering and flooring the accelerator, leading inevitably to a high speed crash. The idea that such a method may exist is given credence by a former SAS operative. Sir Ranulph Fiennes, a former SAS(R) soldier and famous adventurer, has made claims that such a method, known as ‘Boston brakes’ has been used on several occasions by intelligence services as an assassination method. The method gets its name from the city where it was first used, by the CIA.
The Flash Gun
Another assassination theory involves the use of a bright flash to blind Diana’s chauffeur and cause the crash. The idea is that a special forces or SIS operative, perhaps riding pinion on a motorcycle and indistinguishable from paparazzi chasing Diana’s car, would fire a powerful flash or strobe light into the eyes of Henri Paul, causing him to collide with one of the pillars in the tunnel the car was racing through. The capability to use such a flash gun to cause vehicle, helicopter and plane crashes was claimed by Richard Tomlinson, a former MI6 spy. Tomlinson testified in the 2008 inquest into the tragedy that he had been shown such a device by a member of the SBS while he was receiving training at the SBS base in Poole.
The Fiat Uno
Finally, others have speculated that an assassin was driving a white Fiat Uno, widely believed to have been present in the underpass at the time of the crash. Using advanced driving techniques taught to special forces and intelligence operatives, the theory claims, the Uno deliberately clipped Diana’s Mercedes, sending it careering into a pillar. Some theorists place the flash gun operator from the paragraph above in the back seat of the Uno.
It should be made clear that the theories mentioned in this report are just that: theories – and poorly supported ones at that. Stories such as this always seem to surface around the time of the anniversary of the crash. No doubt this latest one will keep the conspiracy theories going for many years to come, especially as it purports to originate from a member of the Regiment.”

“‘Now You Can Be Both’ Mother, Professional
By Judy Mann August 8, 1979
Kristine Mary, now a supergrade in the Office of Personnel Management, had her first chile 2 1/2 years ago, when she was a budget examiner in the Office of Management and Budget. At nights she was finishing up her law degree at George Washington University.
“My baby was due the 17th of December. My last exam was on the 15th. I went to work, took off a little early, took my exam, went home,wondering why I felt so bad. Imimmediately, I went into labor. It blew everybody’s mind that I could wrap up everything at work, wrap up everything at school and have my baby. That was of the all-time coup.”
She had succeeded, beyond a question, in proving that she could do it all — that she could work during her entire pregnancy in the high-pressure atmosphere of OMB and also finish law school.
Kristine Marcy’s second child was due August 5 and again, she has worked throughout her pregnancy, this time as assistant director for human resources for veterans and labor programs. She has turned 32 and has been in demanding, supergrade jobs since her daughter was 8 months old. Her husband, Eric Marcy, is an assistant U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia in the fraud division.
Kristine Marcy has noticed subtle but important changes in her working environment since her last pregnancy. People, she says, are a little more realistic about working mothers and pregnant women. Maybe a little more relaxed about it.And she says she doesn’t feel she has to prove a point anymore.
“There’s just a lot more familiarity with pregnant women in major jobs around government. It’s not such a shock.” Several years ago, she believes, women felt they had to be either mothers or professionals. “Now you can be both,” she says. It’s acceptable to show some emotion, it’s acceptable to alter your job style. I think that’s happening across the board, though, for men and for women.”
She worked to the end of her first pregnancy to prove that it could be done. Had she felt sick, she says, she would have stayed home if necessary and found some other way of explaning her absence to the office. “Now, I would just say, look, I feel rotten and I’m staying home, even if it was obvious it was pregnancy related. I don’t feel it’s really a question of having to prove yoursele anymore . . . I’ve proved myself. Obviously, I can stay up all night [with a sick child] and still come into work. I don’t think I carry that burden anymore.”
She feels pregnancy and motherhood are accepted “in stride” by her coworkers. “I don’t get probing questions or the advice I got the first time. I just couldn’t walk down the hall without people saying it’s a boy or it’s a girl. I haven’t gotten nearly the unsolicited comments.
“I was very conscious that all the men whe worked for me would go home and ask their wives what it’s like, so they would know how to deal with me. I assumed that. I don’t know that any of them did. I tried to keep my pregnancy secret as long as possible and have them find out I’ve been pregnant for four months and hadn’t behaved any differently.”
Mendenhall’s baby was due in early August. “I now work from about 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Everybody at work has so afraid of being offensive, that they ignore it.””
“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.”
“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 [ConAir] 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 easy to forget that Britain has used them – and that Winston Churchill was a powerful advocate for them Secrecy was paramount. Britain’s imperial general staff knew there would be outrage if it became known that the government was intending to use its secret stockpile of chemical weapons. But Winston Churchill, then secretary of state for war, brushed aside their concerns. As a long-term advocate of chemical warfare, he was determined to use them against the Russian Bolsheviks. In the summer of 1919, 94 years before the devastating strike in Syria, Churchill planned and executed a sustained chemical attack on northern Russia. The British were no strangers to the use of chemical weapons. During the third battle of Gaza in 1917, General Edmund Allenby had fired 10,000 cans of asphyxiating gas at enemy positions, to limited effect. But in the final months of the first world war, scientists at the governmental laboratories at Porton in Wiltshire developed a far more devastating weapon: the top secret “M Device”, an exploding shell containing a highly toxic gas called diphenylaminechloroarsine. The man in charge of developing it, Major General Charles Foulkes, called it “the most effective chemical weapon ever devised”.”

“‘It’s got me’ – lonely death of Soviet scientist poisoned by novichok
Andrei Zheleznyakov was working on chemical weapons in the 1980s when a hood malfunction exposed him to the deadly nerve agent
Andrew Roth and Tom McCarthy
Thu 22 Mar 2018 05.00 GMT Last modified on Thu 22 Mar 2018 13.44 GMT
Before former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia collapsed on a park bench in Salisbury on 4 March, the only other person confirmed to suffer the effects of novichok was a young Soviet chemical weapons scientist.
“Circles appeared before my eyes: red and orange. A ringing in my ears, I caught my breath. And a sense of fear: like something was about to happen,” Andrei Zheleznyakov told the now-defunct newspaper Novoye Vremya, describing the 1987 weapons lab incident that exposed him to a nerve agent that would eventually kill him. “I sat down on a chair and told the guys: ‘It’s got me.’”
By 1992, when the interview was published, the nerve agent had gutted Zheleznyakov’s central nervous system. Less than a year later he was dead, after battling cirrhosis, toxic hepatitis, nerve damage and epilepsy.
But by deciding to go public, he joined those blowing the whistle on a chemical weapons programme that was still charging forward years after George Bush and Mikhail Gorbachev signed the 1990 US–Soviet Chemical Weapons Accord in which each pledged to halt the production of chemical weapons.
What is novichok?
Despite Zheleznyakov’s role in creating a binary of a nerve agent believed to be more potent than the deadly VX nerve agent, he remains a hero to some.
“He gave all the information – I couldn’t do that at the time,” said Vil Mirzayanov, a chemical weapons scientist put on trial in Russia for first revealing the existence of the novichok programme, speaking to the Guardian at his home in Princeton, New Jersey. “He was not afraid because he knew his days were numbered.”
Zheleznyakov was never prosecuted, but he could not outrun the poison. He lost the ability to concentrate, Mirzayanov said, and eventually isolated himself.
He died in 1993 of a brain seizure while eating dinner, divorced and childless, largely disgruntled at the perceived indifference shown him by his superiors and journalists.
Russian officials continue to deny ever having such a programme. “I want to state with all possible certainty that the Soviet Union or Russia had no programmes to develop a toxic agent called novichok,” said Russian deputy foreign minister Sergei Ryabkov last week.
On Tuesday, Russia’s RIA Novosti state news agency ran an interview with the head of a Moscow lab from the State Scientific Research Institute of Organic Chemistry and Technology who confirmed that the Soviet Union had developed novichok agents. The programme just had a different name: foliant.
One person with intimate knowledge of the foliant programme told the Guardian that Zheleznyakov was “hardly the first victim” during the development of novichok nerve agents.
Lev Fedorov, a civil activist who chronicled the Soviet chemical weapons programme and its victims, wrote that another scientist, LA Lipasov, died “in connection with the development of modern types of chemical weapons”.
But Fedorov died in 2017 and the Guardian was not able to identify Lipasov or other victims where the institute produced the novichok agents under their codename. The institute did not respond to questions about the development of the foliant programme, or its victims.
Other possible victims include Russian banking magnate Ivan Kivelidi, who was killed along with his secretary in a mysterious poisoning in 1995, and a Soviet officer named Vladimir Petrenko, who had been poisoned in 1982 after volunteering to test a new protective suit. He believed he had been tricked into testing the effects of a new poison gas on humans instead.
Petrenko became an ecological activist after the fall of the Soviet Union, but had fallen out of contact about a decade ago, former colleagues said.
None besides Zheleznyakov has been confirmed to have encountered a novichok agent.
The Soviet and then Russian governments kept Zheleznyakov comfortable in his last years. He received several thousand rubles each month from the government, and spent time whittling wooden masks and figurines at a sculptor friend’s studio.
“One thing is expected of him: to stay silent,” wrote Oleg Vishnyakov, who interviewed Zheleznyakov for Novoye Vremya in 1992. Zheleznyakov also met with a Moscow-based journalist for the Baltimore Sun.
His death ended two generations of family service to the Soviet chemical weapons programme stretching back to the 1920s. Zheleznyakov’s father, Nikolai, was the deputy head of the Soviet Union’s chemical industry as Moscow headed into the second world war. In late 1941, Zheleznyakov’s superior ordered increased production of lewisite and hydrogen cyanide, and new capacity to produce mustard agents and phosgene.
Zhelezyankov’s education in the Voroshilov chemical defence academy enabled his rise from a regional party worker to the ranks of the Soviet elite. He would eventually be given an apartment in Moscow’s House on the Embankment, often called the House of Government, largely reserved for the nomenklatura.
Andrei served in the Soviet army in the 1960s and promptly entered the closed State Scientific Research Institute of Organic Chemistry and Technology in Moscow. For years, he analysed nerve agents like soman and VX before they were passed on for testing on rats, dogs and monkeys, he told Novoye Vremya. The institute gave him a comfortable salary and access to hard-to-find products in the late-era Soviet Union.
In the 1980s, he began to create a binary of a novichok variant called A-232, a chemical weapon that Russia was furiously developing to keep pace with the west. Binaries involve two precursor chemicals that can combine to produce nerve agent.
One benefit of a binary is its increased shelf-life. Another is the ability to hide nerve agents from inspectors.
“Both precursor chemicals had legitimate industrial uses and were relatively nontoxic, so that they could be produced at plants ostensibly designed to manufacture fertilisers and pesticides,” wrote the late Johnathan Tucker, an arms control expert, in his authoritative War of Nerves: Chemical Warfare from World War I to Al-Qaeda. “This ambiguity would make it easier to conceal the illicit production of novichok-5 components from international arms inspectors.”
Even as Moscow inked deals with the west in the late 1980s to halt chemical weapons production, it left foliant products off the list.
In 1987, a Dutch freelance journalist, Hans de Vreij, was rewarded for his years covering drab negotiations over chemical weapons with a trip to Shikhany, the closed city on the Volga river where the Soviet Union would put its chemical weapons on display as part of a trust building exercise.
“Nobody was talking about novichok then,” he told the Guardian in a telephone interview.
The region had been a centre for chemical warfare development since the 1920s, when the Germans established a chemical weapons plant and testing site codenamed Tomka nearby (they left in 1933).
De Vreij was a rare foreign journalist invited on the trip, flying in on a military jet and then by bus to Shikhany. After passing through three circles of barbed wire surrounding the city, they were brought to a community centre, where young children sang and danced for them.
Then there were demonstrations. In one, De Vreij said, visiting negotiators and journalists were given gas masks (tested in a tent with tear gas), and then stood behind a protective screen.
Then Soviet chemical weapons troops in full protective equipment extracted sarin gas from a munition and injected it into a live rabbit. The rabbit died within 30 seconds.
“They wanted to show us it was serious stuff,” De Vreij said. While the troops were fully kitted out, the visitors behind the screen were not wearing the same protective clothing as the troops.
“I heard later the Americans were unsatisfied,” De Vreij said. “They didn’t show us the newest stuff. They wanted to see the binary weapons which the Americans themselves were developing at the time.”
About five months earlier in Moscow, Zheleznyakov was working on those very binary weapons on a hot May morning when a hood vent malfunctioned, releasing a small amount of novichok-5 into the air. A superior told him to drink some tea, which he promptly vomited. He was given an antidote, which was some help, and told to go home.
He made it as far as Ilyich Square, where a church “began shining and then fell to pieces,” before he collapsed and was taken to a hospital. There, KGB officials forced a triage doctor to sign a non-disclosure agreement and said that Zheleznyakov had eaten bad sausages.
In hospital, doctors eventually guessed at the source of the poisoning and gave Zheleznyakov atropine. The injections would save his life, but he would never fully recover, spending weeks in a coma, months unable to walk, and years suffering from deteriorating health, but maintaining silence on the foliant programme.
But when Mirzayanov was arrested and a superior said publicly that there were no binary weapons currently being developed at his Moscow lab, Zheleznyakov went public.
“I knew that was a lie,” Zheleznyakov told Novoye Vremya in 1992. Seven months later, he was dead.
“It was tragic that he lost his life to the very weapon he helped create and revealed to the world,” Mirzayanov wrote later. “Most of those who knew of his poisoning never did anything to help save his life.””
“9/11 & FALSE FLAGS, HISTORY & REVISIONIST HISTORY, NAZI-NEOCON-WW3-NWO, TECHNOLOGY FIELD MCCONNELL: HILLARY CLINTON’S CONNECTION TO 9/11 REVEALED
May 1, 2017
Field McConnell is a career military and airline pilot with connections to the aircraft-related events of 9/11. His Air National Guard unit had F-16s over Washington DC on the morning of 9/11. Captain Charles ‘Chic’ Burlingame of American Airlines Flight 77 was his college classmate. The software used on the drones which were flown into the Twin Towers, Boeing Uninterruptable Auto-Pilot (BUAP) is his intellectual property.
McConnell claims it was this BUAP technology that was misappropriated by his sister, Kristine Marcy, and Hillary Clinton on that day, when the Establishment patsied Muslims to facilitate their ‘New American Century’.
In December 2006, McConnell came forward about the ‘Boeing Uninterruptible Auto-pilot’ software and its role in 9/11, causing the FAA, US Department of Justice and the Airline Pilots Association attempt to silence him.
McConnell then retired from Northwest Airlines and has since gone on to consult entities in Russia, Malaysia and Germany on how airliners can be taken down using illegal software modifications.”
“Serco farewell to NPL after 19 years of innovation
Published: 8 Jan 2015
Serco said goodbye to the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) at the end of December 2014 after 19 years of extraordinary innovation and science that has seen the establishment build a world-leading reputation and deliver billions of pounds of benefit for the UK economy. During that period under Serco’s management and leadership, NPL has delivered an extraordinary variety and breadth of accomplishments for the UK’s economy and industry. Some of the key achievements during that time have been: – .. It has been estimated that work carried out by the Centre of Carbon Measurement at NPL will save eight million tonnes of carbon emissions reductions (2% of UK footprint) and over half a billion pounds in economic benefit over the next decade. … NPL’s caesium fountain atomic clock is accurate to 1 second in 158 million years and NPL is playing a key role in introducing rigour to high frequency trading in the City through NPLTime. .. “I’m also immensely proud of Serco’s track record in managing and operating a key UK asset. NPL is quite rightly recognised as one of the top three NMIs in the world, despite having a limited budget compared with many others. .. We leave the NPL in a very healthy state.”
“Cambridge Analytica Facebook Data Theft is a Scandal that Befits the Digital Age
PETER MUGGERIDGE | MARCH 22ND, 2018
The recent exposure of the dastardly data-mining doings of political consultant firm Cambridge Analytica really shouldn’t come as a surprise.
Because as long as there have been men and women craving political power and glory, there have been shadowy characters lurking in the grey areas of the law reaping enormous payouts to help these men and women fulfill their ambitions.
Before social media, privacy invasions and data-mining, consulting firms did their work the old-fashioned way. They would hire workers to go door-to-door or tele-market, not only trying to convince voters to choose a certain politician, but also to gain insight into the issues that interest voters’ and shape the most advantageous political message.
And if you had to sweeten the pot by greasing a few palms, blackmailing a few bigshots or tearing down a few lawn signs, well, they reasoned, that’s what everyone else was doing.
Were these tactics illegal? To political consultants, right or wrong is always beside the point. They’re not interested in abiding by rules, they’re paid to get results. And if you have to break a few laws along the way, you could always invoke the old adage: if you’re not cheating, you’re not trying.
It’s no coincidence that Bill Clinton’s election strategist James Carville, a master practitioner of the dark arts of political consulting, titled his book: All’s Fair: Love, War and Running for President. Or that Ed Rolllins, key advisor for Ronald Reagan in 1984, called his effort: Bare Knuckles and Back Rooms: My Life in American Politics.
These old-fashioned methods, while effective to a point, were terribly time consuming, expensive and needed a lot of manpower. And there was no real way of knowing, at least until election day, whether the efforts paid off.
Now, however, with social media tools like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, WhatsApp, etc., the really hard work is done by the whizkids at their computers. What used to happen behind the scenes in smoke-filled rooms now happens behind the screens in Millennials’ basement apartments.
These digital mercenaries pore over the massive amounts of data (pictures, comments, biographical information, opinions, likes, dislikes, etc) that we feed into social media machine on a daily basis.
People like Christopher Wylie, who worked with Cambridge Analytica before igniting this scandal by going public, would “harvest” all the data available on social media. They’d slice and dice it, eventually building voter profiles that are more accurate, less time-consuming and, most importantly, cost-effective than the old fashioned way of doing business.
“We spent millions of dollars harvesting tens of millions of Facebook profiles,” says Wylie of his work with Cambridge Analytica. Profiles which they then sold to interest politicians. And while the Trump campaign is in the eye of the storm, this practice has been going on since at least 2008, as admitted by Carol Davidsen, director of integration and media analytics for Barack Obama’s election run.
Facebook claims it didn’t know this was going on but you get the feeling they’re not really putting their heart into it. “We respected the privacy settings that people had in place. Privacy and data protections are fundamental to every decision we make,” Facebook said in a somewhat lame statement to the Washington Post.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg will now have to answer to the authorities, not only about the fact that they provided a platform for Russian hackers to influence the election, but also explain how all their so-called “privacy” and “data-protection” measures ended up in the hands of the consultants. He’s been summoned by the House of Commons’ Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee (U.K) to discuss the Cambridge Analytica case and U.S. Federal Trade Commission about whether Facebook failed to give its users clear notice where their data was going.”
“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.”
“Friend or foe detection Abstract An identification friend or foe (IFF) system and method can covertly identify an object as friend or foe (FoF). An encoded illumination signal can be calculated using a detected ambient signal and an identification (ID) signal and emitted. The encoded illumination signal can be detected by analyzing a detected ambient signal and decoded using a specified key.

“QinetiQ names missile boss as new chief executive
Defence research group QintiQ names MBDA’s Steve Wadey as new chief executive, replacing Leo Quinn
By Alan Tovey
8:38PM GMT 27 Jan 2015
QinetiQ has named its new chief executive, appointing Steve Wadey of missiles business MBDA, to take over the top job at the defence research group.
He will take over the post left vacant by turnaround specialist Leo Quinn, who left FTSE 250-listed QinetiQ to take the reins at embattled infrastructure group Balfour Beatty earlier this month.
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.”
“Qinetiq (/kɪˈnɛtɪk/ as in kinetic; styled as QinetiQ) is a British multinational defence technology company headquartered in Farnborough, Hampshire. It is the world’s 52nd-largest defence contractor measured by 2011 defence revenues, and the sixth-largest based in the UK.
It is the part of the former UK government agency, Defence Evaluation and Research Agency (DERA), which was privatised in June 2001. The remainder of DERA was renamed Dstl. It has major sites at Farnborough, Hampshire, MoD Boscombe Down, Wiltshire, and Malvern, Worcestershire, former DERA sites. It has made numerous acquisitions, primarily of United States-based companies.
It is listed on the London Stock Exchange and is a constituent of the FTSE 250 Index.
“Qinetiq” is an invented name. “Qi” is supposed to reflect the company’s energy, “net” its networking ability, and “iq” its intellectual resources.
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. The Ministry of Defence would keep a ‘special share’ in the company, and safeguards would be in place to prevent conflicts of interest. In February 2003, the US private equity firm the Carlyle Group acquired a 33.8% share for £42m. Prior to stock market flotation, ownership was split between the MoD (56%), Carlyle Group (31%) and staff (13%). The Carlyle Group was expected to invest for three to five years, after which a stock exchange float would take place.”
“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
By Marion Dakers
7:42AM GMT 19 Dec 2014
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.”
