SATAN* = Serco Airbus Tagged Assassins Network based out of former RAF Oakhanger
McConnell claims that Serco's banker HSBC and Starwood Hotel investors in Chicago have been using SATAN City hijackers to trigger catastrophe bonds for accelerated debt recovery under Islamic Banking arrangements and that they sent Michelle Obama to Starwood’s Westin Hotel in Beijing to remind Chinese leaders 'freedom of speech' did not mean they should explain how ad hoc waypoints were imputed into MH Flight 370 for a Cat IIIc landing on Diego Garcia!
McConnell notes that Serco, HSBC and Starwood may have established a long-range alibi for Bill Clinton to view the ad-hoc waypoint profile flown by the weapon which hit the U.S. Navy Command Center on 9/11 with images back-hauled to the Sheraton Mirage Port Douglas Resort in Queensland from a camera on the roof of the Sheraton Pentagon City Hotel.
McConnell invites rebuttal of his deduction – see http://www.abeldanger.net/ – that HSBC paid SATAN hijackers deployed by City of London to impute fatal ad-hoc waypoints into MH370, MH17 and QZ8501 and accelerate Islamic debt recovery with phony insurance claims where the fraudsters buy long-range alibis as voyeur guests of Starwood hotels remote from crime scenes.

HSBC's Islamic closures highlight dilemma
By Patrick Jenkins in London and Camilla Hall in Dubai ©Bloomberg
HSBC's decision last week to close down its Islamic retail banking operations in six markets – leaving it with a presence only in Malaysia, Saudi Arabia and, in shrunken form, Indonesia – has shone a spotlight on the contradictions of the broader sector.
Islamic banking is reckoned to be growing globally at a rate of more than 20 per cent a year, as a greater proportion of the world’s 2bn Muslims seek out finance that is compliant with sharia laws on issues such as the illegality of charging interest.

According to Ernst & Young, Islamic banking assets globally are set to top $1.1tn by the end of this year, up from barely $800bn two years ago, driven in particular by strong growth in the Middle East and Malaysia.
Asset growth is one thing; revenues and profits are another. Though HSBC does not disclose global performance figures for its Islamic business, HSBC Amanah, the pullback from operations in the UK, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Singapore and Mauritius has been driven not by any reassessment of Islamic products per se but on broader economic grounds. HSBC has withdrawn from about 20 mainstream retail banking markets that were performing poorly, reinventing its global network as more of a corporate banking franchise.
As in many standard finance markets around the world, the bank will remain a big player in Islamic corporate and investment banking. It is the world’s biggest issuer of sukuk, or Islamic bonds, with twice the issuance volume of its nearest competitor, Malaysias Maybank, so far this year, according to Bloomberg data.
Nonetheless, many experts believe the Islamic model, particularly in the retail sector, is fundamentally troubled. Barclays and Deutsche Bank have also scaled back their Islamic banking teams in Dubai.
"Clearly the Islamic business is not making enough money for them [HSBC] and I don't think they're the only ones. Standard Chartered has the same issue,” says one senior Islamic banker in Dubai. “Given the size of their presence the revenues are not commensurate."
StanChart insists that it is committed to Islamic banking, pointing to rapid growth in key regions. Revenue from its operations in the UAE, for example, grew 65 per cent last year.
Profitability for all Islamic operators looks less impressive, though little detail is available. "All these banks are under stress, these [Islamic] businesses add a certain level of franchise value but in terms of overall numbers they’re just a blip on the radar," says the Dubai banker.
Experts say there are at least two key problems. First is the challenge of cost – bankers say higher charges for many Islamic products, because of complex structuring and legal overheads, constrain demand as well as profits, explaining why even optimistic estimates put the proportion of Muslims that use Islamic finance at barely 10 per cent.
Others question the integrity of some products. “The industry hasn’t stood by its principles. In many cases, products have become Islamised versions of interest-based debt,” says Tarek El Diwany, senior partner at Islamic consultancy Zest Advisory in London. “The normal Muslim on the street has not been convinced by what’s on offer in the UK.”
But Bank of London and the Middle East, a British Islamic bank focused on corporate business, asset management and high-net worth individuals, is convinced that it can continue to grow, and profitably. “The caution of people amid the Arab spring pushed wealthy individuals and businesses with money in Bahrain to move it to Dubai and London,” says Humphrey Percy, the bank’s chief executive.
The general crisis of confidence in mainstream bank ethics as well as the economic health of the Middle East region should help boost the growth of Islamic banking everywhere, he says.
In addition, many bankers believe HSBC's retrenchment is good news for Mr Percy and others like him around the world. "This shows that for international banks trying to get into Islamic retail banking that they’ve lost that battle; you can't compete with local players on the ground," says one Dubai banker. Harris Irfan, founder of Cordoba Capital in London, and the former head of Islamic products for Barclays Capital in Dubai, is less unequivocal. “But it's a very big step back for the industry," he says."
"HSBC's $1.9B money laundering settlement approved by judge
British bank helped move money for drug traffickers and countries subject to U.S. sanctions
CBC News Posted: Jul 03, 2013 3:34 PM ET Last Updated: Jul 03, 2013 4:53 PM ET
A U.S. federal judge has approved a settlement between the U.S. Department of Justice and HSBC in which the British bank will pay $1.9 billion US for facilitating the laundering of millions of dollars from drug traffickers and processing financial transactions from countries under U.S. sanctions.
The so-called deferred prosecution agreement was originally reached in December 2012, but was only officially approved by U.S. district court Judge John Gleeson, of New York's Eastern District, on Monday.
Under the terms of the deal, the Justice Department agreed to suspend criminal charges against HSBC and its U.S. subsidiary, HSBC Bank USA, for five years if the bank agreed to pay the penalty and take measures to address the "systemic failures" that led to lapses in oversight and compliance with U.S. money laundering laws and international sanctions.
The $1.9 billion the bank will have to pay includes $655 million in civil penalties and $1.25 billion in forfeiture, which is the largest penalty imposed on a bank accused of violating the U.S. Bank Secrecy Act.
Case could still be prosecuted
The terms of the agreement will be overseen by the court, with quarterly updates on compliance required from each of the two parties. If the bank complies with the terms of the agreement, the charges, which were filed under the Bank Secrecy Act, the International Emergency Economic Powers Act and the Trading with the Enemy Act, will be dismissed after five years.
The bank has admitted in a statement of facts that Mexican and Colombian drug traffickers laundered at least $881 million through HSBC Bank USA and its Mexican subsidiary between 2006 and 2010. It also admitted that from 2000 to 2006, HSBC processed $660 million in payments from banks and other institutions from countries under U.S. sanctions, including Cuba, Libya, Sudan, Iran and Burma.
HSBC affiliates and subsidiaries "ensured that these transactions went undetected in the U.S. by altering and routing payment messages in a manner that hid the identities of these sanctioned identities from HSBC Bank USA and other U.S. financial institutions," Gleeson said in his recapping of the statement of facts."

"NEWS HISTORY Recognized as one of the world's largest hotel and leisure companies, Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. is comprised of nine internationally renowned brands and the award-winning loyalty program Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG)®.
Our brands include: St. Regis®, The Luxury Collection®, W®, Westin®, Le Méridien®, Sheraton®, Four Points® by Sheraton, Aloft℠, and Element℠.
Starwood Capital Partners, a real estate acquisition company backed by high net worth families, is formed in Chicago.
Starwood Capital buys its first hotels, and by 1994 owns interests in more than 30 properties.
In September, Starwood Lodging announces an agreement to purchase Westin Hotels & Resorts for $1.8 billion. The following month Starwood Lodging announces an agreement to purchase ITT Sheraton Corporation [and its ad hoc waypoint hijacking technology] for $14.3 billion, acting as a white knight against a hostile bid from Hilton. Starwood is set to become a global enterprise. Starwood stock ends the year up by 57.48%.
In January, Starwood Lodging completes the acquisition of Westin Hotels & Resorts. With the completion of the purchase, Starwood is renamed Starwood Hotels & Resorts. In February, Starwood completes the acquisition of ITT Sheraton Corporation. Starwood's portfolio now includes more than 650 hotels and resorts in more than 70 countries worldwide.
The first W Hotel opens in December in New York City. Designed to offer the personality and individuality of an independent, one-of-a-kind hotel – while guaranteeing the reliability and superior level of amenities and services travelers desire – the W brand adds style and personality to the industry.
Starwood acquires Vistana, Inc., a vacation ownership company, to establish an immediate presence in the growing vacation ownership market. It later becomes Starwood Vacation Ownership, one of the most profitable segments of the company.
Starwood launches Starwood Preferred Guest to reward and recognize frequent travelers. The program makes headlines with its policy of no blackout dates and no capacity controls – both industry firsts.
Three of our brands make big news in 1999. Westin Hotels & Resorts introduces the Heavenly Bed®, featuring a pillow-top mattress, down comforter and luxurious, all-white bed linens. It is an immediate success. The St. Regis brand grows from one hotel in New York City to six hotels all named to Condé Nast Traveler’s "Gold" list for 1999. The Four Points by Sheraton brand opens its 100th hotel, the Four Points by Sheraton Santa Monica in California.
In 2001 Starwood is recognized by major players in the travel industry. Starwood is named the World’s Leading Hotel Group at the Eighth Annual World Travel Awards. And Starwood Preferred Guest is voted Program of the Year for the second consecutive year during the 13thAnnual Freddie Awards (since renamed the Frequent Traveler Awards), one of the most prestigious honors in the travel industry.
Westin Hotels & Resorts introduces the Heavenly Bath® in North American hotels, offering guests a temptation to leave the Heavenly Bed in the morning. Starwood introduces the Westin Heavenly Crib®and the Sheraton and Four Points by Sheraton Sweet Sleeper Crib in North America.
Starwood announces that Sheraton, Westin and W hotels will welcome dogs in the U.S. and Canada. As part of the Starwood LTD (Love That Dog) program, four-legged guests receive luxurious dog beds and amenities like plush robes, doggie toys and canine massages. Sheraton Hotels & Resorts introduces the Sheraton Sweet Sleeper®Bed, featuring an 11.5-inch-thick high coil count Sealy Posturepedic Plush Top mattress, down and allergy-sensitive pillows, and crisp cotton sheets. This is the latest in a series of enhancements designed to elevate the brand to the top of the upscale hotel segment.
For the sixth year running, Starwood Preferred Guest is voted Program of the Year in both America and internationally during the 17th Annual Freddie Awards.
Starwood acquires Le Méridien, a brand created to share and extend the international experience. 137 properties, primarily located in Europe and the Middle East, become part of the Starwood family.
Starwood announces its much-anticipated new brands in the select-service hotels category: Aloft Hotels and Element Hotels. Conceived by the team that created W Hotels, Aloft Hotels will raise the bar in the select-service category, offering urban-inspired, loft-like guest rooms, enhanced technology services, landscaped outdoor spaces for socializing day and night, and an energetic lounge scene. Inspired by Westin Hotels & Resorts, Element Hotels intends to promote balance through flowing, multi-purpose spaces with an emphasis on environmentally-friendly design.
The first Aloft and Element hotels open in Lexington, Massachusetts.
Starwood invests $6 billion in enhancements as part of the Sheraton Revitalization project. 60 new and 120 newly renovated Sheraton hotels and resorts around the world benefit from the revitalization effort which includes 300 new lobbies, 70,000 new guest rooms, 100,000 new beds and the brand's unique wired lobby lounge, the Link@Sheraton℠ experienced with Microsoft®.
Starwood launches a partnership with global environmental non-profit Conservation International. The partnership leads to an environmental strategy addressing priority environmental issues including hotel-level initiatives to conserve water, reduce energy consumption, enhance indoor environmental quality, and minimize waste.
Starwood celebrates a significant milestone with the opening of its 1,000th hotel. The Sheraton Qiandao Lake Resort opens on the shores of China's famed Qiandao Lake.
Expanding on its company-wide commitment to conservation and sustainable operations, Starwood plans to significantly reduce energy and water consumption at every one of its 1,000 hotels within the decade. The target is a 30 percent reduction in energy use and a 20 percent decrease in water consumption per available room by 2020.
In April, Starwood becomes the first corporate partner to join Clean the World's efforts to promote a global hygiene revolution. Clean the World, a social enterprise committed to saving lives and protecting our planet, announces a corporate agreement to collect and recycle hotel soaps, shampoos, conditioners, lotions and gels to help fight the global spread of preventable diseases. An estimated 1.6 million pounds of hotel soap may be recycled each year through this partnership.
Starwood's CEO, Frits van Paasschen, and senior management move to Shanghai for the month of June. The move reflects the company's global evolution and boom in China, its second largest market after the United States. Relocating global headquarters to China provides senior management with an on-the-ground view of the immense growth occurring in that part of the world. "Eighty percent of our future pipeline is outside of North America, and nowhere is more emblematic of our global growth than China, where we will open one hotel every two weeks this year. China’s spectacular transformation is hard to grasp unless experienced firsthand – it's the proverbial, 'you can't really understand a culture until you buy groceries there.” – Frits van Paasschen
New York City becomes the first, and only, city in the world to fly all nine Starwood brand flags. Set to reach 25 hotels in New York City by 2014, Starwood has the largest portfolio of four and five star hotels in the five boroughs of New York City. In November, Starwood hits 200th hotel milestone in Asia Pacific and widens its lead as Asia’s largest operator of four and five star hotels with a flurry of new openings at year end.
December brings the announcement of Starwood's acquisition of 49.8% of the shares of Design Hotels AG from Arabella Hospitality SE, one of Starwood’s longtime partners in Germany. Berlin-based Design Hotels, a publicly traded company and provider of distribution, sales, marketing and consulting services for hotels boasts a portfolio of over 200 member hotels in 40 countries. Design Hotels' hand-picked collection of hotels are independently owned, but united by a passion for thought-provoking design, aesthetic and service-driven experiences.
Starwood Preferred Guest® launches richest elite traveler benefits in history for global mega travelers – this small, but powerful, group drives 30% of the company’s profit. The more SPG members stay, the more choices are available and the more personalized the benefits become with standouts like lifetime status, first-of-its-kind 24-hour check-in and a dedicated Starwood ambassador who provides one-on-one service to uniquely tailor the guest experience.
The highly anticipated St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort & Residences opens in the affluent Florida enclave of Bal Harbour. In just five years the brand nearly tripled its global portfolio and plans to continue that dynamic growth with the upcoming openings of The St. Regis Doha, The St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort in Abu Dhabi and The St. Regis Mauritius Resort, in addition to the debut of the newly renovated St. Regis Aspen Resort this year."
"Port Douglas Queensland … In November 1996 United States President Bill Clinton and First Lady Hillary Clinton chose the town as their only holiday stop on their historic visit to Australia. When dining at a local restaurant they witnessed a couple's wedding certificate. On a return visit on 11 September 2001, the then ex-President [was staying at Starwood's Sheraton Mirage Port Douglas Resort and] was again dining at the Salsa Bar and Grill, a local restaurant, when he was advised of the 11 September attacks. He returned to the United States the following day."
Serco in the clear: City of London Police find no evidence of any "corporate-wide conspiracy [and have ignored the Islamic Debt and money-laundering activities of HSBC]"
by Guy Bentley
Outsourcing firm Serco has finally received some good news after a disastrous year.
After being asked last year to conduct an investigation into whether Serco staff had been misleadingly recording prisoners as ready for court when they were not, the Crown Prosecution Service has accepted the view of the City of London Police and put Serco in the clear.
No charges will be brought against Serco or their staff. It was also found that the information gathered for the City of London Police was sound enough to conclude that there was "no evidence of any corporate-wide conspiracy or an intention to falsify figures to meet the DRACT contract requirement by senior Serco management or at the board level of the company".
The City of London Police will not be continuing their investigation. The controversy began after the police were asked to investigate allegations of fraud at the FTSE 250 company over a £285m prison contract with the ministry of Justice last year.
The Public Accounts Committee recently called for the brake up of big private-sector contracts for government services after documenting the failures of companies such as Serco and G4S.
Last month, Serco chairman Alastair Lyons announced his intention to step down. His last year at the company was characterised by slew of profit warnings and "operational mis-steps"."
