Open letter from the Cloud Centric Crime Scene Investigators of Abel Danger
June 15, 2018
Dear General Kelly:
Please accept Brief 297 from Field McConnell – United States Marine Corps whistle-blower and Global Operations Director of Abel Danger (AD) – wherein he asks you to explain to himself and his fellow Marines why the American government has outsourced custody of Marine Corps Digital Fires Training, The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and Explosive (CBRNE) Software Support to Serco.
The images and references below may suggest to you that the decision – apparently taken during the Clinton administration from 1993 to 2001 – to outsource key U.S. government functions to Serco, its shareholders and its investment banker N M Rothschild & Sons Ltd., was not such a good idea.

“A proxy war, occasionally also called a proxy fight, is an armed conflict between two states or non-state actors which act on the instigation or on behalf of other parties that are not directly involved in the hostilities. In order for a conflict to be considered a proxy war, there must be a direct, long-term relationship between external actors and the belligerents involved. The aforementioned relationship usually takes the form of funding, military training, arms, or other forms of material assistance which assist a belligerent party in sustaining its war effort.”
