Kelly 278: SES Marcy’s Con Air Pig Farm Bullets, Rothschild’s North Tower Patented Bets, Serco’s Banking Wrongful Deaths
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
May 21, 2018
Dear General Kelly:
Please accept Brief 278 from Field McConnell – United States Marine Corps whistle-blower and Global Operations Director of Abel Danger (AD) – wherein he and his research team at Abel Danger plan to help injured communities launch crowd-funded docudramas and class-action lawsuits where the plaintiff group has suffered wrongful deaths in events where witnesses appear to have been extorted into silence by McConnell’s sister Kristine Marcy and her SES colleagues after they launched ‘Con Air patentee SWAT team’ networks in August 20, 1985 and allegedly deployed a U.S. Marshals Service’s Boeing 727 with Boeing’s Intervention flight management system US4811230A; Jerome H. Lemelson’s Prisoner tracking and warning system and corresponding methods US6054928A and Darrel Rubin’s Biological active bullets, systems, and methods US9200877B1 for the production of online snuff films derived from the killing of up to 100 predominantly-First Nations prostitutes at a B.C. pig farm between 1983 and 2002.
Abel Danger believes that the associates of the late chemist and biologist Victor Rothschild, the former Chairman of N M Rothschild & Sons Ltd. – the investment banker for Serco, Queen Elizabeth II and U.S. President Donald Trump – gave Marcy the keys to the DOJ Asset Forfeiture Fund needed to finance Con Air murder for hire and tasked Winston Churchill’s grandsons and White’s Club members Nicholas and Rupert Soames, with killing Vince Foster former Deputy White House Counsel on July 29, 1993 and former Secretary of Commerce Ron Brown on April 3, 1996 where pig-farm bullets appear to have silenced prospective witnesses to a Rothschild dead pool on the 47th Floor of the North Tower (WTC1) when Serco shareholders allegedly used Howard Lutnick’s Real-time interactive wagering on event outcomes CA 2460367 A for body count betting during ‘the first live-broadcast mass snuff film in human history‘ on 9/11.
“Yet the individual is handicapped by coming face to face with a conspiracy so monstrous he cannot believe it exists. The American mind simply has not come to a realization of the evil which has been introduced into our midst. It rejects even the assumption that human creatures could espouse a philosophy which must ultimately destroy all that is good and decent.” Attributed to J. Edgar Hoover. The Elks Magazine (August 1956).
AD believes that Serco – formerly RCA GB 1929 – equips its Con Air SWAT teams for victim/witness intimidation and crime-scene spoliation with two basic categories of weapons namely…
1. Penetrator devices such as Taser International’s Hand-held stun gun for incapacitating a human target US6636412B2 which allegedly generated a time-stamped snuff film image for the death of the late JonBenét Ramsey on Christmas Day 1996 or the Lockheed Martin Rocket-Boosted Guided Hard Target Penetrator US 6276277 B1 which allegedly allowed Rothschild’s London and NYC agents to trigger death pool betting for Serco clients and shareholders on the 47th Floor of the WTC North Tower on 9/11.
2. Radio-controlled devices derived from apparent patent-continuation frauds by Serco and QinetiQ operatives of the USPTO and the U.K. MoD’s privatized laboratories who allegedly hacked Motorola’s Dynamic encryption key selection for encrypted radio transmissions US5222137A and the multichannel device held by the late FDNY Chief of Department Peter James Ganci Jr. which appears to have been used to ignite the Qinetiq Explosive Device US20060243151A1 and elevator-shaft incendiaries embedded in Arconic’s [cf. Grenfell Tower!] Double sheet aluminum panel .. US 20160096343 A1 and kill 343 FDNY members with ambush demolitions of WTC1 & 2 on 9/11.
AD believes that Serco SWAT teams fitted and warned Buck Revell, Senior Executive Service (SES-6) and then FBI Director deputy in charge of Criminal Investigative, Counter-Terrorism and Counter-Intelligence activities, to pull his son and daughter-in-law off the tarmac just before Pan Am Flight 103 took off from London’s Heathrow airport at 18:25 hours on 21 December 1988 and the Dean Cross patented Radio beacon triggered the bomb which delivered a body count of 243 passengers + 16 crew + 11 people on the ground in Lockerbie, Scotland just after 19:02:50.
AD believes that Serco hired Buck Revell to work with the UK’s National Crime Squad (NCS) to set up and silence witnesses who can be blackmailed with the US Air Force’s Autonomous face recognition machine US5012522A and manipulated with QinetiQ North America Inc’s Social Engineering Protection Appliance US9123027B2 to filter physical truth (actus reus) from crime scene investigations which might otherwise expose the role of ‘Con Air Marcy’, Rothschild/Serco and Senior Executive Service agents in attacks such as the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in downtown Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, United States on April 19, 1995 which killed at least 168 people.
AD believes that Serco agents ordered Marcy to send the alleged Murrah bomber and Con Air SWAT team leader, Timothy McVeigh, to be executed by lethal injection – perhaps using technology described in China’s Injection death execution vehicle CN2519750Y – on June 11, 2001 at the Federal Correctional Complex in Terre Haute, Indiana and ensure there was one less prospective whistleblower around to warn of the live broadcast mass snuff film planned for 9/11.
With this the 278th Kelly public briefing, we have shown why the Trump Administration must purge associates of N M Rothschild & Sons Ltd, Serco shareholders and the U.S. Senior Executive Service from contracts with America particularly those related to the deployment of Con Air SWAT teams to extort silence or consent from patentees and/or witnesses to what are, in essence, RICO body-count dead-pool missions which expose Serco‘s shareholders and banks to massive claims for wrongful deaths
Abel Danger will help leaders of injured communities to develop crowd-funded film productions and law suits so that while claims for damages for wrongful deaths appear in the online courts of public opinion, scripts for physical acts causing deaths (actus reus) associated with the negligent, reckless, wilful, fraudulent or concealed use of patented devices and spoliation of evidence, can be published on the AD website without attempting to prove mental intent to murder (mens rea).

““Con-Air” in 1/6 San Diego Union Tribune [news article]
From: email@example.com (Glenn Campbell, Las Vegas)
Date: Tue, 7 Jan 1997 10:37:42 -0800
Subject: “Con-Air” in 1/6 San Diego Union Tribune [news article]
A correspondent passed this 1/6 article on to us. He adds:
“The article in the hard-copy paper has a couple of pictures to go with the
story (no pix on-line). One picture shows the shoulder patch on the aircrew
uniforms, another shows prisoners lined up about to board a Convair 580. The
paint job on the plane looked like INS or maybe US Marshals Service, it was a
green stripe with an eagle forward of the door.”
The article is relevant here because of recent discussion of Con-Air flights
using the “Janet” company name.
You won’t need a reservation on this airline — no matter how many travelers
flood the airport.
Don’t worry about traffic or parking. Shuttles are provided. And the price is
right — you fly for free.
But think carefully before you step aboard. This is ConAir, and all the
passengers are federal prisoners.
“We don’t serve mixed drinks,” said Thomas Little, chief of air operations for
the program, officially titled the Justice Prisoner and Alien Transportation
System, or J-Pats.
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.
The inmates fly mostly on 727s and DC-9s. But the airline, which has merged with
the air wing of the Immigration and Naturalization Service, also operates
Convair 580s, a Lear jet and a number of smaller aircraft.
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
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.
“We don’t beat up our prisoners, and our planes certainly don’t crash,” Marcy
said on a recent trip to San Diego, where she was trying to find more jail space
for federal prisoners.
The space problem here is acute because of the high number of border arrests.
So, San Diego is a regular stop on ConAir’s West Coast air route, with 12
flights per week scheduled into Lindbergh Field.
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.
Without the air transportation system, Operation Gatekeeper, the federal border
crackdown, would not have been possible, said Mark Reed, San Diego’s
district director for the INS.
Before ConAir was called in last July, Reed said, the INS was spending hours on
the road busing hundreds of prisoners to Las Vegas, the closest jail space
Kim Porter, who coordinates INS air transportation in San Diego, estimated that
12,000 inmates have flown from here to Las Vegas and back aboard
“If the planes stopped flying for just one day, a monkey wrench would be thrown
into the whole system,” Porter said.
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
“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.”

“A DEMONSTRABLE IMPOSSIBILITY:
The HSCA Forensic Pathology Panel’s Misrepresentation of the Kennedy Assassination Medical Evidence
by John Hunt
The House Select Committee on Assassinations’ (HSCA) Forensic Pathology Panel (FPP) sought to identify and locate as precisely as possible any exit wounds on John Kennedy’s head, including that of the bullet it determined entered the rear of the President’s head. To accomplish that, the FPP utilized the only hard evidence available to it—the X-rays and photographs taken during Kennedy’s autopsy. Mysteriously, the President’s brain and the tissue slides of the wound margins prepared after the autopsy (which had been preserved for further study) have disappeared. The only organic matter from JFK’s body remaining in evidence today is the dried blood in the fabric of the clothing he wore that day, and possibly the human skin and tissue associated with CE-567.
The X-rays – Four radiologists were consulted by the FPP over a six-month period beginning in February 1978. None reported an identifiable exit point. The closest an HSCA radiology consultant came to claiming to identify an outshoot point was Dr. David Davis, who reported:
It seems apparent that explosive impact occurred in this calvarium. It also seemsreasonable to assume that the exit point is near the coronal suture on the right side, about 5 or 6, or perhaps slightly more, cm above the pterion. (7HSCA224) [emphasis added]
Why it “seem[ed] reasonable” to Davis “to assume that the exit point” was anywhere is left entirely to the imagination of the reader, for Davis never explained the rationale upon which he based his assumption. Davis’ unsupported and equivocal speculation notwithstanding, the X-rays did not reveal any outshoot points. That left the FPP with only the photographs to make their determination.”
“Pickton convictions begin to unravel
Supporters of women who have gone missing in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside rally outside a courthouse where Robert Pickton’s appeal is being heard.
Brian Hutchinson, National Post · Apr. 1, 2009 | Last Updated: Apr. 2, 2009 9:41 AM ET
It’s awful to contemplate, but Robert “Willie” Pickton’s six murder convictions could soon be overturned. Mistakes were made at the end of his 2007 trial, lawyers representing Pickton told a B.C. Court of Appeal panel this week.
But we already knew that. The trial judge admitted he had messed up in his instruction to jurors, and had taken steps to fix the problem before a verdict was reached. The question remains, did he make things worse?
Pickton’s long-anticipated appeal began this week in a downtown Vancouver courtroom. On Wednesday, a Crown attorney stood before the three appellate judges and acknowledged that prosecutors themselves had made an error near the trial’s ending with regards to the 2007 Pickton jury instruction. Albeit an error not in law, but in judgment.
Admissions such as these are what appeal court lawyers dream about. A judge actually admits to making an error during a trial. The Crown admits to some role in it. Lawyers for the convicted grab at these loose threads and start pulling, hoping the entire process might ultimately unravel. At issue before the appeal court panel are three paragraphs that Mr. Justice James Williams inserted late into his jury instructions, delivered in late November, 2007, at the Pickton trial.
Prior to reading his final instructions to the jury, the appeal court has heard, Judge Williams sought input from Crown and defence lawyers.
One of them, Pickton defence lawyer Adrian Brooks, asked the judge to instruct jurors that Pickton could not be found guilty of murdering three of his six alleged victims unless jurors determined that he had “pulled the trigger” on a firearm used to kill them.
Remains from the three victims indicated that they had been shot to death. Remains from the others were too fragmentary or too decomposed to indicate the same. Remarkably, Judge Williams agreed to the defence request. More surprising, lawyers prosecuting Pickton did not protest it. Their acquiescence was bizarre. The defence’s so-called actual shooter insertion seemed meant to dissuade the jury from considering that Pickton could have had a co-perpetrator, at least in three of the six murders.
Few trial observers seriously believed the simpleton pig farmer could have acted alone. And while the Crown never argued that Pickton had help killing his six victims — after all, there was no co-accused — it seemed to leave open the suggestion.”
“The Botched Ron Brown Investigation
An Interview with AFIP Forensic Photographer Kathleen Janoski
by Wesley Phelan
Former Secretary of Commerce Ron Brown died on April 3, 1996, in a plane crash near Dubrovnik, Croatia. Thirty- four persons accompanying Brown on the trade mission also died in the crash. Due to the efforts of Judicial Watch we now know beyond a reasonable doubt that seats on Brown’s Commerce Department trade missions were sold to raise funds for the Democratic National Committee and the 1996 Clinton/Gore Campaign. There is overwhelming evidence that Bill and Hillary Clinton knew of and approved this improper and illegal fundraising scheme .
Even more serious than the sale of public property for campaign contributions is the likelihood that transfers of American technology, approved and overseen by Ron Brown’s Commerce Department, breached national security. Bernard Schwartz, head of Loral Corporation and a major donor to the DNC, accompanied Brown on a 1994 trade mission to China. During this trade mission Brown set up a meeting between Schwartz and a Chinese government official. This meeting led to a transfer of American missile technology to the Chinese that is now the subject of a congressional investigation .
At the time of his death Ron Brown was under subpoena to produce documents relating to the sale of seats on trade missions to Judicial Watch for its suit against the Commerce Department. Nolanda Hill, a friend and business partner of Brown, testified under oath that Brown had shown her a collection of such documents in an ostrich skin portfolio. These documents were withheld from Judicial Watch in violation of the subpoena and a FOIA request. Just before his death Brown reportedly said of his mounting legal troubles, “I am too old to go to jail. If I go down, I’ll take everyone else down with me” .
The suspicious circumstances surrounding the crash of Brown’s plane have given rise to much speculation of foul play . Making Brown’s death even more suspicious is the fact that a perfectly round .45 inch inwardly beveling hole was discovered in the top of his head as his body was being processed by the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology (AFIP). The story of the hole in Brown’s head broke onNovember 24, with a report by Christopher Ruddy in the Pittsburgh Tribune- Review. Ruddy reported that Lt. Col. Steve Cogswell, a deputy medical examiner with AFIP, questioned the official finding that Brown died of multiple blunt- force trauma as a result of the airplane crash. Cogswell, who did not personally examine Brown’s body, based his suspicions on x-rays and photographs of the top of Brown’s head. Also suspicious, according to Cogswell, was the fact that the original x-rays of Brown’s head showed possible metal fragments in the brain, consistent with a high-velocity gunshot wound. The two head x-rays are missing from Brown’s file and Cogswell suspects they were never placed in the file .
Hause, one of AFIP’s leading experts on gunshot wounds, was present in the room when Brown’s body was being examined. A commotion erupted when Chief Petty Officer Kathleen Janoski said “Wow, look at the hole in Ron Brown’s head.” Hause walked over and verified that the wound penetrated the skull, exposing brain matter. According to Hause, the wound “looked like a punched- out .45-caliber entrance hole.” After Hause spoke to Ruddy, the AFIP gag order was broadened to include all AFIP personnel.
On January 8, the Justice Department announced it had found no reason to launch an investigation into the case. The next day a story by Michael Fletcher appeared in the Washington Post. Fletcher reported that AFIP had convened a review panel of all its pathologists, including Cogswell and Hause. Fletcher said the panel came to the unanimous conclusion that Brown died of blunt-force trauma and that the hole in the top of Brown’s head was not a gunshot wound.
Unfortunately for Fletcher, his story misrepresented what happened in the review panel. What actually happened, according to Cogswell, is that he refused to participate in the review because he thought it would not be fair and unbiased. His lawyer concurred with his decision. In fact, most of those participating in the review were not board-certified in forensic pathology. Of those who were certified, none had significant interest or experience in gunshot wounds. All of the Armed Forces Medical Examiner’s forensic pathologists with any expertise in gunshot wounds (Cogswell, Hause, and Parsons) dissented from the “official” opinion .
On January 13, yet another member of AFIP joined the ranks of the dissenters. Kathleen Janoski, a 22-year Navy veteran, was the head of AFIP’s forensic photography unit. Janoski says she was told that missing evidence from the Brown file was purposely destroyed. Janoski originally declined to speak to the press about the matter, but finally came forward out of concern for the careers of Cogswell, Hause, and Parsons. She was stunned that the AFIP inquiry focused on the actions of the whistleblowers instead of on the botched examination of Brown’s body. Janoski says a naval criminal investigator told her the original x- rays of Brown’s head “showed a lead snowstorm.” Janoski then located photographs she had taken of the original x-rays and gave them to Cogswell to review. That is how the story began.”
“THE AUTOPSY FOSTER’S “MAGIC” BULLET HOLE.
Virtually the entire case for supposed suicide rests firmly on the autopsy done by Dr. James C. Beyer, a pathologist for Fairfax County, Virginia with strong ties to the FBI.
Dr. Bayer’s autopsy report at first reading seems unremarkable. It’s conclusion is that Vincent Foster died of a single gunshot wound entering the roof of the mouth and exiting the back of the skull.
But on closer examination, problems become apparent.
Dr. Beyer’s co-worker at the Fairfax County, Virginia, medical examiner’s office is Dr. Donald Haut. It was Dr. Haut, not Dr. Beyer, who actually examined Vincent Foster’s body while it was still at Fort Marcy Park, assisted by John Rolla. On page two of Dr. Haut’s signed report, the wound track is described as a “gunshot wound mouth to neck”.
This corroborates the eyewitness testimony of EMS Technician Richard Arthur, who described the gunshot wound in some detail, placing it under the right ear. This is consistent with the news story reported by Ambrose Evens-Pritchard, who described a photograph of that wound.
Was there really an exit wound out the back of Foster’s head?
Prior to the body’s delivery to Beyer, nobody reported a gunshot wound out the back of the head. EMS Sergeant Gonzalas stated he did NOT see a gunshot wound out the back of the head. John Rolla did not report a gunshot wound out the back of the head. Another EMS Technician, Cory Ashford, testified is a tape recorded interview with reporter Chris Ruddy that he was certain there was NO exit wound at the back of the head while Vincent Foster was at Fort Marcy Park!
Outside of the obviously altered page one of Dr. Haut’s report, there isn’t a single official record of a gunshot wound exiting the back of Foster’s head while he’s still at Fort Marcy Park.
It is not until the body arrives at Dr. Beyer’s morgue that the neck wound seen by Arthur and Haut seems to go away and the wound out the back of the head appears.
On the wound description page in the Beyer autopsy, the box for neck wounds has been left blank.
But the wound that Beyer DOES describe is rather odd. Supposedly, the wound is the result of a soft nosed unjacketed lead bullet being fired through two dense bones, first at the base of the skull and then at the rear. There should be metal fragments all over the wound track. For a comparison, take a look at the X-ray taken of John F. Kennedy’s skull following his assassination. Metal fragments are seen throughout the interior of the skull, and this is from a full metal jacket round, the type that LIMITS fragmentation!
Yet in describing the wound track in Vincent Foster’s head, Beyer notes on page 2 of his report that no metallic fragments were recovered during the examination! There should have been lead scrapings all over the bone perforations, had a soft-nosed lead bullet really made them!
More recently, a FBI telex was uncovered which reported that the autopsy conducted by the Fairfax County Medical Examiner had found a bullet entry but NO EXIT WOUND!”

“All the gifts but contentment
Niall Ferguson reviews Elusive Rothschild by Kenneth Rose
By Niall Ferguson
12:00AM GMT 23 Mar 2003
Victor Rothschild was born as lucky as it is possible to be born. He was the heir to both a title and a great fortune. And he was talented – so much so that the cliche “Renaissance man” for once seems appropriate. He played county cricket for Northamptonshire. He was elected a Fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge, before he had published a word. He was a brilliant zoologist whose research into the reproduction of sea urchins earned him a Fellowship of the Royal Society at the age of 43. Yet he was also an expert on 18th-century books, whose private library merited a Cambridge University Press catalogue.
Rothschild was no less successful when he left academe for public life. He served both Labour and Conservative governments, causing no end of a commotion as the head of Edward Heath’s Central Policy Review Staff (the original “Think Tank”). In the private sector he was Director of Research at Shell and Chairman of the family firm of N. M. Rothschild & Sons.
He also had many of the conventional virtues in abundance. He was, for example, extravagantly generous towards his friends. You might say that would be easy enough for a Rothschild, but it cannot be said of every millionaire. And yet, as Kenneth Rose reveals in this rich and intimate biography, Rothschild was an unquiet spirit, whose contradictory appetites for intrigue and confrontation came close to destroying his reputation.
The list of conspiracies and quarrels is a long one, beginning in his own private life. His first marriage to Barbara Hutchinson was a catalogue of rows and his treatment of his eldest son Jacob seems almost calculated in its cruelty. (In the words of an anonymous cousin, he was “a brusque and dismissive tyrant seeking revenge for his failed first marriage by humiliating his son”.)
He fell out with Trinity College over its alleged neglect of books he had donated to its library. His role at the Think Tank turned out to be “to rub ministers’ noses in the future”; Heath came bitterly to regret his appointment. Margaret Thatcher too must have rued the day she ever met the man who acted as William Waldegrave’s adviser during the design of the calamitous poll tax.
It is, however, for his turbulent role in the murky world of espionage that Victor Rothschild is doomed to be remembered. The evidence against him was always circumstantial. At Cambridge he had befriended Guy Burgess and Anthony Blunt, two of the five “Cambridge spies” who would go on to betray their country to the Soviet Union. During the war he had also got to know a third of these traitors, Kim Philby.
Rothschild himself was never a Communist nor a Soviet spy. Yet he disastrously compromised himself in later life when he encouraged Peter Wright, the renegade ex-MI5 officer, to hand over his memoirs and allegations to the journalist Chapman Pincher. This bizarre act sparked off claims that Rothschild himself was the “fifth man” which elicited a damningly weak exculpation by Mrs Thatcher. The nadir of his career was his cross-examination by the Serious Crimes Squad of Scotland Yard.
What made Rothschild so destructively irascible? Malcolm Muggeridge captured something of Victor’s fractious temperament, looking back on a wartime encounter in Paris. He had, Muggeridge recalled, “a curious, uneasy mixture of arrogance and diffidence”. Was it the result of the crude anti-Semitism he had encountered at prep school – or perhaps the more subtle anti-Semitism he and others detected behind slights (like his failure to secure election to White’s Club) in later life? Perhaps. Although devoid of religious feeling, Victor could hardly disown the faith of his forefathers. His own aunt perished at Buchenwald.
Or was it the sense that none of his achievements would ever be wholly appreciated in their own right? The suspicion lurked – in Victor’s mind if in no one else’s – that as a Rothschild he enjoyed an unfair advantage in life. Paradoxically, he felt himself to be handicapped by this advantage – to be discriminated against on account of his privileges. It is given to few to enter the world with both a silver spoon in the mouth and a chip on the shoulder. But this was Victor Rothschild’s predicament.
In a way, the suspicion that he was being given special treatment was justified. Cambridge allowed him to proceed to doctoral research without having to sit the undergraduate Tripos examinations. He was decorated for his work in countering German sabotage during the war, though his own efforts at bomb disposal for MI5 were no more heroic than those of more obscure servicemen – and unlike them he was able to subsist throughout the war on smoked salmon, poussins and vintage champagne. After the war directorships and chairmanships rained down on him that would not have rained down on him had his surname been Bloggins.
Nor, it might be said, would Bloggins have attracted such a high-class biographer. Kenneth Rose is candid about his close relationship to his subject. An unusual number of his sources are private conversations between himself and Victor Rothschild. Not all readers will feel comfortable with such overt loyalty on the part of a biographer.
Nevertheless, this is very far from being a work of hagiography. Muggeridge got Rothschild right, and Kenneth Rose has the wisdom to quote his sketch in full: “Somewhere between White’s Club and the Ark of the Covenant, between the Old and the New Testament, between the Kremlin and the House of Lords he has lost his way . . . This Socialist millionaire, this Rabbinical sceptic, this epicurean ascetic, this Wise Man . . . had followed the wrong star and found his way to the wrong manger – one complete with chef, central heating and a lift.”
It is not a heart-warming epitaph. But it has the harsh ring of truth.

“The Oklahoma City bombing was a domestic terrorist truck bombing on the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in downtown Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, United States on April 19, 1995. Perpetrated by Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols, the bombing killed at least 168 people, injured more than 680 others, and destroyed one-third of the building. The blast destroyed or damaged 324 other buildings within a 16-block radius, shattered glass in 258 nearby buildings, and destroyed or burned 86 cars,causing an estimated $652 million worth of damage. Extensive rescue efforts were undertaken by local, state, federal, and worldwide agencies in the wake of the bombing, and substantial donations were received from across the country. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) activated 11 of its Urban Search and Rescue Task Forces, consisting of 665 rescue workers who assisted in rescue and recovery operations. Until the 2001 September 11 attacks, the Oklahoma City bombing was the deadliest terrorist attack on American soil and remains the deadliest incident of domestic terrorism in United States history.
Within 90 minutes of the explosion, McVeigh was stopped by Oklahoma Highway Patrolman Charlie Hanger for driving without a license plate and arrested for illegal weapons possession.Forensic evidence quickly linked McVeigh and Nichols to the attack; Nichols was arrested, and within days, both were charged. Michael and Lori Fortier were later identified as accomplices. McVeigh, a veteran of the Gulf War and a U.S. militia movementsympathizer, had detonated a Ryder rental truck full of explosives parked in front of the building. His co-conspirator, Nichols, had assisted with the bomb’s preparation. Motivated by his dislike for the U.S. federal government and angry about its handling of the Ruby Ridge incident in 1992 and the Waco siege in 1993, McVeigh timed his attack to coincide with the second anniversary of the deadly fire that ended the siege at the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, Texas.
The official investigation, known as “OKBOMB”, saw FBI agents conduct 28,000 interviews, amass 3.5 short tons (3,200 kg) of evidence, and collect nearly one billion pieces of information. The bombers were tried and convicted in 1997. McVeigh was executed by lethal injection on June 11, 2001, and Nichols was sentenced to life in prison in 2004. Michael and Lori Fortier testified against McVeigh and Nichols; Michael was sentenced to 12 years in prison for failing to warn the United States government, and Lori received immunity from prosecution in exchange for her testimony.
As a result of the bombing, the U.S. Congress passed the Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996, which tightened the standards for habeas corpus in the United States, as well as legislation designed to increase the protection around federal buildings to deter future terrorist attacks. On April 19, 2000, the Oklahoma City National Memorial was dedicated on the site of the Murrah Federal Building, commemorating the victims of the bombing. Remembrance services are held every year on April 19, at the time of the explosion.”
