#1524: Marine Links FBI Boston Bomber Casting Call Lab to Kristine Marcy Forfeiture JABS

Plum City – ( United States Marine Field McConnell has linked the FBI Laboratory’s online casting call for Boston Bomb parolees and actors to his sister Kristine Marcy and her alleged procurement of Nortel’s Joint Automated Booking System (JABS) with the DOJ Asset Forfeiture Fund to allow the FBI to track and where necessary, kill selected parolees and actors (IMDb?) at various Boston crime scenes.

McConnell believes that his sister is guilty of misprision of treason after she failed (?) to warn United States governors of the FBI Laboratory’s Bombers Casting Call projects and the FBI’s use of JABS to track and, where necessary, kill selected parolees and actors at crime scenes associated with the bombing of the East African Embassies (1998), the USS Cole (2000) and the Pentagon U.S. Navy Command Center (9/11).

WE DIDN'T DO IT - Shootout Watertown Boston MA

The body of 26-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnaev remained unclaimed more than a week following his death in a gunbattle with police in Watertown, Massachusetts, after allegedly shooting dead a Massachusetts Institute of Technology police officer.

The body remained with the office of Massachusetts' chief medical examiner, said spokesman Terrel Harris.

His father, Anzor Tsarnaev, told reporters in Russia on Thursday that he intended to travel to Boston to bury his son.

Tsarnaev's widow, Katherine Russell, retreated to the North Kingstown, Rhode Island home of her parents after the arrest. Her lawyer did not respond to repeated requests for comment on Friday.

Authorities moved Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to the prison at Fort Devens, Massachusetts, from the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, where some of the victims were also being treated. Devens is about 39 miles west of Boston.

The prison specializes in inmates who need long-term medical or mental health care, according to the Federal Bureau of Prisons website. It currently holds about 1,000 prisoners.

New York City officials said on Thursday that Dzhokhar told investigators in the hospital that after the FBI released their pictures, the brothers made an impromptu plan to drive to New York and set off more bombs in Times Square. New York has been on heightened alert since the September 11, 2001, attacks.

U.S. lawmakers are demanding answers from security officials about what they might have known about the brothers, particularly Tamerlan, before the bombing on April 15.

In 2011, Russia had asked the FBI to question Tamerlan because of concerns that he may have been an Islamic militant. The FBI has said it interviewed him but found no cause to continue investigating.

"Clearly enough was not done in order to monitor the activities here, especially given the fact that it wasn't one heads-up we were given but several," U.S. Representative Ed Royce, a Republican who heads the House Foreign Affairs Committee, told CNN.

A trust gap remains between U.S. and Russian intelligence services, former Cold War rivals. U.S. officials said they consider counterterrorism information from Moscow's bitter conflict with Islamic militants in Chechnya and other parts of the volatile north Caucasus especially suspect.

A little more than three years ago top Boston FBI agent Richard DesLauriers, the same man running the bombing investigation, took part in an FBI operation code-named "Ghost Stories" in which 10 people were rounded up because the United States believed they were Russian spies.

Two of those people, Donald Heathfield and Ann Foley, were arrested in Cambridge, Massachusetts, about a mile west of the house the Tsarnaevs lived in. All 10 were handed over to Russia in a carefully choreographed exchange for four Russians who had been jailed for working for western governments.

John Collauti, the public relations spokesman for the Federal Medical Center at Devens, says Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is in segregation in a small cell with a steel door that allows food to be passed through and prison officials to watch him.

Collauti said in a telephone interview that Tsarnaev is in secure housing where authorities can monitor him. His cell has a solid steel door with an observation window and a slot for passing food and medication.....[M]edical workers making rounds each shift monitor the inmates. He said guards also keep an eye on some cells with video cameras.

Also, inmates in the more restrictive section do not have access to TVs or radios, but can read books and other materials, he said.

In other words, he's in the hole. [More...]

The Special Housing Unit is used for administrative detention and disciplinary segregation. From the Code of Federal Regulations (28 CFRSec. 541 et seq):
Administrative detention status is an administrative status which removes you from the general population when necessary to ensure the safety, security, and orderly operation of correctional facilities, or protect the public. Administrative detention status is non-punitive, and can occur for a variety of reasons.
There is no television or radio or contact with other inmates. Detainees are on 23 hour a day lockdown, 5 days a week. They are allowed 1 hour of excercise if they are able to take it in a maximum security setting. The other 2 days they are on 24 hour lockdown. Showers are limited to three times a week.
“FBI TRANSFORMATION: [Allegedly in support of a “Re-inventing Government” conspiracy by FBI Lab associates to overthrow the government of the United States by force] Procurement Services Implementation – FY 2010  …. BACKGROUND  Since 2002, an Academy Panel, utilizing Sub-Panels in a variety of subject matter areas, has  provided advice to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) regarding the FBI’s transformation.  In 2009, The FBI’s Finance Division (FD) asked the Academy to provide additional assistance by conducting an independent review of the Bureau’s procurement function. The review was intended to transform the procurement delivery system into a more effi cient and progressive enabling function aligned with the Bureau’s mission, and has included seven acquisition-related areas: organizational structure, annual acquisition planning, performance metrics, Acquisition Review Board processes, oversight mechanisms, staffi ng, and executive knowledge of procurement. For FY 2010, FD requested that the Academy assist the Bureau in implementing recommended transformational changes within the procurement services area. … Procurement Services Review Sub-Panel Kristine M.

The Joint Automated Booking System
Audit Report 05-22
May 2005
Office of the Inspector General
The Joint Automated Booking System (JABS) is a computer system that helps federal law enforcement agencies book, identify, and share information quickly about persons in federal custody. The U.S. Department of Justice (Department) developed JABS to support its law enforcement agencies in carrying out the Department's mission.

The purpose of this audit was to assess the extent to which the JABS program was meeting its stated goals and to examine the status of implementation of JABS. Our audit focused on efforts to implement JABS from the time component representatives formally signed onto the project in May 1999 through November 2004. Our specific audit objectives, scope, and methodology are more fully addressed in Appendix I.

In 1993 the Department began assessing the feasibility of automating booking procedures in a way that could meet the needs of several of its law enforcement components, rather than having each organization develop its own unique system. The organizations included the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), the United States Marshals Service (USMS), and the Bureau of Prisons (BOP). JABS now also serves the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), which assumed the duties of the former Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) in March 2003 when it was transferred to the DHS from the Justice Department, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) which transferred into the Department of Justice in January 2003.

The ATF, FBI, and DEA investigate crimes, arrest criminal suspects, and work with the U.S. Attorney's Offices and other federal, state, and local agencies to coordinate criminal investigations. The USMS apprehends fugitives, protects the federal judiciary, and provides for the confinement, transportation, and processing of defendants. This responsibility for defendants makes the USMS the central agency of contact for virtually all federal offenders, regardless of local variations in how offenders are processed or where they are confined. The exception to this rule is persons detained by the DHS on immigration violations, who are not charged with crimes but are denied admission to the United States, and who are generally not brought to the USMS for arraignment and detention. The BOP confines convicted offenders and many pre-trial defendants. All of these agencies book people they detain or arrest, and the BOP commits offenders to its facilities.

The Department's Deputy Assistant Attorney General [Kristine Marcy in 1996] for Information Resources Management, who is also the Chief Information Officer (CIO) for the Department, chairs the JABS Board of Directors. The CIO reports to the Assistant Attorney General for Administration, who heads the Justice Management Division. As the chair of this Board, the CIO is charged with facilitating consensus building among the participating components and functioning as the liaison between the Program Management Office and the Board.

The Board consists of senior level officials from the ATF, BOP, DEA, FBI, USMS, and DHS. It provides executive level policy and program guidance to the JABS Program Management Office, reviews and approves proposed changes to system requirements, and approves high-level documents, such as the JABS Systems Boundary Document, Concept of Operations, and System Design Document.
The Program Management Office has established four contracts to provide support for JABS development and operations. One contract supports 18 contract staff who provide administrative and operations support in developing and maintaining documents such as project management plans, budgets, risk management plans, configuration management plans, quality assurance plans, and user and system requirements. This contract also supports daily administrative activities, including status reporting, financial accounting services, deployment of booking stations, and user enrollment and training. The value of this contract is $1.8 million.

Technical system support is acquired through a $3.2 million contract with another firm that designed, developed, and maintains the current version of the Core JABS, provides operations support for the Core JABS at the JDC-W, and resolves trouble tickets forwarded by the NSC. The contractor also designed, developed, and provides operational and maintenance support for components' automated booking systems.

The JABS security program is supported through an $800,000 contract that provides technical support on security requirements, security plans, contingency plans, security test plans, and certification and accreditation documents. The contractor independently validates security designs developed by other contractors and conducts security testing to ensure compliance with federal, Departmental, and program security requirements.

The fourth contract requires the contractor to design, develop, and deploy a web-based architecture for the Core JABS to serve as the platform for future improvements. This will include providing a web browser-based booking station capability. This contract was initially valued at about $522,000, and was awarded to the same contractor that provides technical support for security issues.
Responsibilities of the user agencies include:
designating an Agency Coordinator, Agency Security Manager, and Local Agency Coordinators; providing an automated booking capability with applicable interfaces to JABS; providing appropriate operations support; coordinating all automated booking capability and related software and interface changes with the Program Management Office; maintaining security certification and accreditation of the user agency network and automated booking capability that is interfaced with JABS;9 and establishing policies to ensure the timeliness and quality of data entered into JABS.

Funding for JABS has been provided from congressional appropriations, the Department's Working Capital Fund, and the Asset Forfeiture Fund. Total funding for the nationwide project for FY 1999 through FY 2004 was about $82,670,000.
In September 1998, the OIG issued an audit of the Department's Joint Automated Booking System Laboratory (Report No. 98-28). The audit identified significant weaknesses in the management and planning for JABS. Specifically, the audit found that the Pilot Project did not meet its original schedule for completing its operational testing. As a result, two Department agencies, the DEA and USMS, developed their own automated booking stations. The audit also identified project management and security weaknesses that needed to be addressed to ensure they were not replicated in the nationwide system planned for development. Corrective action on the audit recommendations was completed in January 2000.

In March 1999 the OIG issued another audit report (Report Number 99-06), which focused on selected computer security controls in the JABS pilot system to determine whether those controls protected the system and its sensitive data from unauthorized use, loss, or modification. The audit found several system weaknesses, including significant lapses in security surrounding password usage, and dormant accounts that were still active after 180 days of non-use. This audit was closed in January 2000 based on the termination of the Pilot Project.”
