Black Hand* – Abel Danger collective term for crime-scene captains of livery companies with a "License to Kill, Extort and Bribe" witnesses, namely The City of London’s Honourable Artillery Company 1527, The Master Mariners 1928 and The Air Pilots 1929 and The Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company of Massachusetts 1638.
McConnell believes that Serco's Black Hand captains positioned a white "Rent A Car" van pictured below as one of several near the Hebdo crime scenes and used the vans' Cassidian wireless system – built by Serco's Skynet partner Airbus – to launch man-in-the-middle attacks on the French National Gendarmerie communications and back-haul snuff-film images for live broadcast by the UK media.
McConnell invites rebuttal of his allegation that Serco deployed white vans for Black Hand surveillance teams near the Hebdo crime scenes and used the Airbus Cassidian system to hack the French National Gendarmerie communications and silence witnesses to the Gladio-style assassination of Muslim police officer Ahmed Merabet in the Boulevard Richard Lenoir.

"Deadly 'cartoon jihad' hits Paris satire mag Charlie Hebdo – in 'GLADIO-style' attack
January 7, 2015 6:17 pm EST ….
The attack is said to have taken place in the middle of an editorial meeting of the political magazine, Charlie Hebdon, known popularly as 'Charlie', with masked gunman calling out by name and killing first its editor Stephane 'Carb' Charbonnier, 47 (photo, left) execution-style, along with 9 other editors and staff, including frequent contributor and French economist Bernard Maris.
Magazine editor Charbonnier had received death threats in the past and is said to have been 'living under police protection' until today. It's still unclear whether or not the police van – which is normally positioned outside of the magazine's offices, was removed before the attack took place, and if so, why a 'stand-down' order was issued in advance of the raid.
Beyond all of the media's 'ISIS' hyperbole, unquestionably, today's attack has all the characteristic of a professional contract hit. Witnesses remarked on how the gunman were perfectly calm and spoke perfect native French, and commented on their 'expert marksmanship', hitting all targets with single shots, and not spraying bullets indiscriminately. Witnesses also described the gunman as 'bulked-up' from what appears to be body armour, and kevlar 'bullet-proof' protection underneath their over garments."
"The Independent … One victim killed in Charlie Hebdo attacks was Muslim police officer Ahmed Merabet
Thursday 08 January 2015
Police have named the a police officer who was killed during an attack on the offices of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo yesterday as Ahmed Merabet, 42, who happened to be patrolling the area at the time and is believed to be Muslim.
Mr Merabet is seen in footage released by Reuters begging the gunmen to spare his life in the 11th arrondissement of Paris, where the offices of the publication are situated, before he was shot more than once. The man is survived by his wife.
After being shot the first time, the gunmen wearing balaclavas and holding Kalashnikov rifles are seen running past the police officer – who had his hands up in surrender – and shot in his direction again at point-blank range as he was lying on the pavement outside the offices.
The masked gunmen is heard asking the police officer “Do you want to kill me?” before he allegedly replied “No, it is OK chief” before one of them shot him a second time round amid an attack described as the worst in France in 50 years.
Another officer, Franck Brinsolaro, was also shot dead by the three attackers suspected to be brothers Said and Cherif Kouachi, who are in their early 30s, and the third suspect - who reportedly turned himself in to the police last night after seeing himself mentioned in the news - was named as 18-year-old Hamyd Mourad.
Mr Brinsolaro, who was the police bodyguard of Charlie Hebdo editor Stéphane Charbonnier and was sitting in the editorial room when the gunmen shot the cartoonists and journalists dead, is survived by his wife and two children.

Police in France are on a manhunt for the brothers that are reported to be hiding out in a social housing estate in Reims, north-east of Paris, after the attack which caused the death of 10 journalists as well as the two police officers.
Cartoonists Stephane "Charb" Charbonnier, 47, Jean “Cabu” Cabut, 76, Bernard “Tignous” Verlhac, 57, Georges Wolinski, 80, and Philippe Honore, 73, were killed in the attack as well as magazine columnist and economist Bernard Maris, 68, and proof-reader Mustapha Ourrad. Psychoanalyst and columnist Elsa Cayat was the only woman killed in the shoot-out. Arts festival founder Michel Renaud and caretaker Frederic Boisseau were also murdered.
According to witnesses, the gunmen shouted "Allahu Akbar", meaning "God is great", before storming into the editorial meeting.
Cherif, 32, had been sentenced to three years in prison in 2008 for helping to transport fighters for the alleged purposes of jihad from France to Iraq, for which he served 18 months, the Associated Press reported. He had said he was inspired to do so after witnessing images of CIA torture from Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq.

Secure technology firm Cassidian expands Gatineau office
Publié le September 23, 2013
Secure technology provider Cassidian Communications is expanding its Gatineau operations and boosting its local workforce by 50 people over the next three years, the company announced Monday.
By David Sali
That will bring the total number of employees at its new 53,000-square-foot office in the Gatineau technology park to about 200, with staff focusing on research and development, testing and support services for the company's 911 call-taking equipment and Land Mobile Radio (LMR) divisions.
The LMR division supplies secure communication systems to police, firefighters and other emergency responders who can’t rely on normal networks. "By expanding our operations we are able to offer the highest level of support and service to our North American customers and public safety organizations," CEO Bob Freinberg said in a statement.
Cassidian Communications' major clients include the RCMP and the City of Montreal, and the company serves customers as far as away as New Zealand. Company officials said Gatineau, which was already a major research centre for the firm’s 911 technology, was the natural choice for the expanded LMR division. "We had a very good experience here and we believe we can find the right type of (employees) here," said Francois Begaud, Cassidian Communications’ chief operating officer for Land Mobile Radio. “We definitely had a presence here, so we wanted to leverage that … We wanted to tell our customers that we are here for the long term."
Cassidian is owned by EADS [Airbus], the world%s largest aerospace and defence company."
"Operation Gladio (Italian: Operazione Gladio) is the codename for a clandestine North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) "stay-behind" operation in Europe during the Cold War. Its purpose was to continue armed resistance in the event of a Warsaw Pact invasion and conquest. Although Gladio specifically refers to the Italian branch of the NATO stay-behind organizations, "Operation Gladio" is used as an informal name for all of them. The name Gladio is the Italian form of gladius, a type of Roman shortsword. Stay-behind operations occurred in many NATO and even some neutral countries.
Gladio was part of a series of national operations first coordinated by the Clandestine Committee of the Western Union (CCWU), founded in 1948. After the creation of NATO in 1949, the CCWU was integrated into the Clandestine Planning Committee (CPC), founded in 1951 and overseen by Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe (SHAPE), transferred to Belgium after France's official withdrawal from NATO's Military Committee in 1966 – which was not followed by the dissolution of the French stay-behind paramilitary movements.
The role of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) in sponsoring Gladio and the extent of its activities during the Cold War era, and its relationship to right-wing terrorist attacks perpetrated in Italy during the "Years of Lead" (late 1960s to early 1980s) and other similar clandestine operations, is the subject of ongoing debate and investigation. Switzerland and Belgium have had parliamentary inquiries into the matter."
"CASSIDIAN DEPLOYS THE BROADBAND TELECOMMUNICATIONS NETWORK OPERATED BY THE FRENCH NATIONAL GENDARMERIE AT AN ALTITUDE OF 3842 M
Long-term collaboration between Cassidian and the French Ministry of the Interior
Renewal of the RUBIS national communication network with 330 radio frequency (RF) links installed in about one year
One of the stages in the modernisation of the RUBIS network has led the Cassidian teams onto the highest radiocommunication site in France which is located on the Aiguille du Midi in the Mont Blanc mountain range at an altitude of more than 3,800 m.
The RF links were successfully deployed with no operational disruptions affecting the security forces, despite of the harsh environment and difficulty in working at this altitude, where physical capacities are reduced by 30 to 40%.
These operations come under the framework of the ICSFH contract (Infrastructure de Communication Sécurisée par Faisceaux Hertziens – Secured Radiofrequency Communication Infrastructure), awarded by the French Ministry of the Interior on 11 August 2010. This four-year contract envisages the installation of a new high-resilience broadband communication network to cover the current and future needs of the French National Gendarmerie force and the Ministry of the Interior in terms of voice and data communications in Metropolitan France and its overseas territories.
Lieutenant Colonel Gilles Martin, who manages the National Gendarmerie's operational communication systems, emphasises the importance of this project: "The development of the RUBIS network towards 'all IP' and particularly the development of its national RF component is fully in line with the strategy of enhancing existing infrastructures and preparing for the future as economically as possible, with ICSFH paving the way for future technologies."
The Ministry of the Interior has reaffirmed its confidence in Cassidian by selecting it as industrial prime contractor for the deployment and through-life support of the RF connections linking the RUBIS radiocommunication sites operated by the French National Gendarmerie As part of this contract, Cassidian has teamed up with Aviat Networks, market leader in the design and implementation of RF equipment.

"Police drops investigation into Serco's prisoner transport ... www.independent.co.uk › News › Business › Business News Dec 19, 2014 - The City of London Police has dropped a year-long investigation into ... said it had “become very clear there has been a culture within parts of Serco that ... last year for ripping off the taxpayer on the electronic-tagging contract, ...”
"The Ministry of Defence is under pressure to rebuff the attempt of one of Britain's biggest companies to take over the £14bn agency that buys the armed forces' missiles and submarines in the wake of the electronic tagging scandal.
Serco, the outsourcing group which runs a host of services for the Government, including immigration and community health centres, is under fire after an audit discovered the taxpayer had been overcharged by £50m for monitoring non-existent electronic tags. They had been assigned to deceased offenders and those who were back in custody.
G4S, the security giant that failed to supply enough guards for the Olympic Games, is also implicated and is being investigated by the Serious Fraud Office. Both companies' lucrative public sector contracts are being reviewed by the Cabinet Office.
It has raised questions about Serco's suitability for one major forthcoming contract, the effective privatisation of the Defence Equipment & Support agency. This reform, designed to help the MoD get better value for money when it buys battle gear and satellites, is unparalleled globally and has been heavily criticised."
