“TheStar.com Identities of Canadians killed in Algeria attack kept secret by RCMP
The RCMP has dropped a cloak of secrecy over the identity of two Canadian terror suspects killed in January’s Algerian gas plant attack.
By: Tonda MacCharles Ottawa Bureau reporter, Published on Mon Mar 25 2013
OTTAWA—The RCMP has dropped a cloak of secrecy over the identity of two Canadian terror suspects killed in January’s Algerian gas plant attack as Canadian security officials scramble to determine the extent of their terrorism ties.
Ordinarily, the identity of Canadians killed at a crime scene would be made public after notification of next of kin.
But the RCMP are extremely tight-lipped in this case, citing only “operational reasons” even to highly placed government officials, a source told the Star.
The national police force confirmed on the weekend what Algerian Prime Minister Abdelmalek Sellal first revealed two months ago in the wake of Algeria’s counter-attack that ended the hostage-taking: that two Canadians were among the militants killed.
RCMP spokesman Greg Cox said Saturday “a second Canadian has been identified from human remains of alleged terrorists in the attack at the gas plant.” Prior to that, the force had confirmed one death, but declined to say whether the individual was among the militants or victims.
On Monday, the RCMP would say only that its investigation is continuing, and would offer no more details, nor explain why it is not releasing the names of the dead.
A Malian news organization, citing an Algerian source, said the two were of Arab origin and held Canadian citizenship. Hostages who survived the attack had previously told media of a blond-haired man who spoke English with a North American accent.
Immigration Minister Jason Kenney cited the Algerian case and a recent Bulgarian terror attack involving a dual Canadian-Lebanese suspect at a parliamentary committee last Thursday in support of a legislative change that would strip Canadian citizenship from dual nationals found to have committed acts of terrorism abroad.”
“Porter a federal Tory donor while chair of spy watchdog
Former Harper appointee now wanted on fraud charges by Quebec's anti-corruption squad

Arthur Porter was a donor to the federal Conservatives during his time at Canada's spy watchdog, public records show.
But his contributions appear to have run afoul of guidelines that all members of the Security Intelligence Review Committee must abide by.
Elections Canada records show Porter gave the Tories the maximum donation allowed by law over a period spanning the weeks leading up to his appointment to SIRC through to his rise as chair. The former head of SIRC now faces allegations of fraud in one of the country's most expensive infrastructure projects.
The Canadian government is trying to extradite Porter from the Bahamas, where he runs a medical clinic and is apparently cancer-stricken. He has said he is too ill to travel, and he denies the allegations against him.
Sought by anti-corruption probe Porter is among the five people named in arrest warrants issued by Quebec's anti-corruption squad, in the case of the $1.3-billion construction of a Montreal mega-hospital.
The others are: former SNC Lavalin senior executives Pierre Duhaime and Riadh Ben Aissa, Yanai Elbaz and Jeremy Morris, the administrator of a Bahamas-based investment company.
The warrants say the men are wanted on numerous charges — including fraud, breach of trust and document forgery. They say Porter and Elbaz are suspected of having accepted bribes from some of the others.
In addition to being head of SIRC, Porter was also the director general of the McGill University Hospital Centre when the alleged fraud occurred.”

“SNC-LAVALIN AWARDED CONTRACT FOR MAJOR ALGERIAN GAS PROCESSING COMPLEX
Montreal | June 16, 2009
SNC-Lavalin is pleased to announce that it has been awarded an engineering procurement and construction contract by Sonatrach, Algeria’s national oil company to design and build natural gas process facilities in the Sahara desert approximately 1200 km to the south east of Algiers. The 785.5 million € lump sum contract (approximately CAN$1.2 billion) calls for SNC-Lavalin to build a gas treatment complex, including infrastructure to collect raw gas at four different gaz fields, a natural gas processing facility and a facility to process and reinject carbon dioxide into gas fields. Once in operation, the facilities will start to produce and process 3.5 billion cubic metres of natural gas per year.
“The signing of this contract follows many months of technical studies and review by Sonatrach,” said Riadh Ben Aissa, Executive Vice-President, SNC-Lavalin Group Inc. in charge of worldwide infrastructure operations. “This contract reflects our proven ability to take on mega projects such as this one, and I am extremely pleased that Sonatrach has entrusted us with carrying out the project.”

“The Non-classified Internet Protocol (IP) Router Network (abbreviated as "NIPRNet," but commonly written "NIPRNET"), but prevalently referred to as the "Non-classified IP Router Network," is used to exchange sensitive but unclassified information between "internal" users as well as providing users access to the Internet. NIPRNet is composed of Internet Protocol routers owned by the United States Department of Defense (DOD). It was created in the 1980s and managed by the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) to supersede the earlier MILNET. NIPRNET is the largest private network in the world. Over the last decades it has grown faster than the U.S. Department of Defense can monitor, which is why DoD is spending $10 million to map out the current state of the NIPRNET, in an effort to analyze its expansion, and identify unauthorized users, who are suspected to have quietly joined the network. The NIPRNET survey will also look for weakness in security. The Department of Defense has made a major effort over the last few years, to improve network security. The Pentagon announced it was requesting $2.3 billion in the 2012 budget to bolster network security within the Defense Department and to strengthen ties with its counterparts at the Homeland Security Department. SIPRNet and NIPRNet are referred to colloquially as sipper-net and nipper-net (or simply sipper and nipper), respectively.”
“Secret Internet Protocol Router Network (SIPRNET)
SIPRNET replaces the DDN DSNET1 as the SECRET portion of DISN. Its complete architecture will be achieved by constructing a new worldwide backbone router system. The primary method for secret-level network connectivity is via Base secret-level networks which in turn provide Base Router connectivity to SIPRNET. Various DOD router services and systems will migrate onto the SIPRNET backbone router network to serve the long-haul data transmission needs of the users. Transmission services will use smart multiplexer and 512 kilobits per second (kbps) channels. Other transmission services will be acquired or leased as needed. Future expansion will progress to the T1 circuit data rate of 1.544 Megabits (Mbps) and potentially to the T3 data rate of 45 Mbps. High speed packet switched service will be provided through the use of IP routers. This SECRET router layer of the DISN is intended to support national defense C3I requirements, to include the issuing of COMSEC keys used with the STU-III to make secure dial-up SIPRNET comm server connections.
The Secret Internet Protocol Router Network (SIPRNET) has matured to be the core of our warfighting command and control capability. Many expeditionary commanders ask for SIPRNET ahead of secure voice when deploying their forces. SIPRNET is fast becoming the defacto standard of preferred data services, even over NIPRNET. The SIPRNET is the new, worldwide router-based network replacing the older X.25-based packet switched network (the Defense Secure Network One (DSNET1) of the Defense Data Network (DDN)). The initial SIPRNET backbone router network went online 3 March 1994. Subscribers started coming on line shortly thereafter. The SIPRNET WAN (as of 31 May 1995) consisted of a collection of 31 backbone routers interconnected by high-speed serial links to serve the long-haul data transport needs of secret-level DoD subscribers. Additional SIPRNET backbone routers are being planned to meet increased customer requirements. SIPRNET supports the DoD standard Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) protocol service. Subscribers within the DoD and other Government Agencies are able to use the SIPRNET for passing datagrams at the Secret-Not Releasable to Foreign Nationals (SECRET-NOFORN) classification level.”
