Obamalaw 9-1-1* – The pre-positioning and pre-payments of first responders and forensic scientists at crime scenes to spot, shoot (film), snuff, spin and spoil evidence of death or injuries which result from murder for hire.
Black Hand** – Crime-scene captains of 4 livery companies with a "License to Kill, Extort and Bribe" namely The City of London's Honourable Artillery Company 1527, Master Mariners and Air Pilots 1929 and the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company of Massachusetts 1638.
McConnell claims that Sidley sent Obama – then Barry Soetoro and a Citizen of the United Kingdom and Colonies – as a journeyman with the Honourable Artillery Company in Quetta in Pakistan in 1981 and with BIC in New York in 1984 where he allegedly learned how to liquidate leveraged leases on pre-insured aircraft or buildings through Obamalaw 9-1-1 and reward clean-up crews, crisis actors, morticians, reporters, witnesses and investigators for their lies or silence.
"A master craftsman or master tradesman (sometimes called only master or grandmaster, German: Meister) was a member of a guild. In the European guild system, only masters and journeymen were allowed to be members of the guild. An aspiring master would have to pass through the career chain from apprentice to journeyman before he could be elected to become a master craftsman. He would then have to produce a sum of money and a masterpiece before he could actually join the guild. If the masterpiece was not accepted by the masters, he was not allowed to join the guild, possibly remaining a journeyman for the rest of his life. Originally, holders of the academic degree of "Master of Arts" were also considered, in the Medieval universities, as master craftsmen in their own academic field."
McConnell claims Sidley hired terror boss and Obama's Black Hand mentor Bernardine Dohrn in 1984 to develop Obamalaw 9-1-1 principles and the firm was then able to show its clients the benefits of handling the dead in mass-casualty events with outside forensic professionals to augment local resources (cf. D-MORT Disaster Mortuary Operations Response Team).
McConnell claims that Sidley sent Obama to Europe and Africa in 1988 to prepare his Obamalaw 9-1-1 masterpiece in a Serco conspiracy with Shanwick Oceanic Area Control whose air traffic controllers allegedly detonated a bomb placed in London over Lockerbie in Scotland and the first responders and subsequent forensic investigators were paid to lie or silenced.
McConnell notes that Sidley counsels its client Airbus in the operations of its subsidiary – Cassidian Communications – whose Obamalaw "9-1-1 call processing platforms support more than 60% of all Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) in the United States, serving over 200 million people, plus hundreds of private sector businesses spanning diverse industries, including transportation, finance and healthcare industries, and Federal Civil and DoD operations globally."
McConnell invites rebuttal of his allegation that Sidley Austin uses Obamalaw 9-1-1 principles to manipulate perceived cause of death at mass-casualty events and that Serco deployed Black-Hand Journeymen to control the outcome of the PanAm 103 crime-scene investigations.

"Two years after graduating, Obama was hired in Chicago as director of the Developing Communities Project, a church-based community organization originally comprising eight Catholic parishes in Roseland, West Pullman, and Riverdale on Chicago's South Side. He worked there as a community organizer from June 1985 to May 1988. He helped set up a job training program, a college preparatory tutoring program, and a tenants' rights organization in Altgeld Gardens. Obama also worked as a consultant and instructor for the Gamaliel Foundation, a community organizing institute. In mid-1988, he traveled for the first time in Europe for three weeks and then for five weeks in Kenya, where he met many of his paternal relatives for the first time. He returned to Kenya in 1992 with his fiancée Michelle and his half-sister Auma. He returned to Kenya in August 2006 for a visit to his father's birthplace, a village near Kisumu in rural western Kenya.
Obama entered Harvard Law School in the fall of 1988. He was selected as an editor of the Harvard Law Review at the end of his first year, president of the journal in his second year, and research assistant to the constitutional scholar Laurence Tribe while at Harvard for two years. During his summers, he returned to Chicago, where he worked as an associate at the law firms of Sidley Austinin 1989 and Hopkins & Sutter in 1990. After graduating with a J.D. magna cum laude from Harvard in 1991, he returned to Chicago. Obama's election as the first black president of the Harvard Law Review gained national media attention and led to a publishing contract and advance for a book about race relations, which evolved into a personal memoir. The manuscript was published in mid-1995 as Dreams from My Father."
"The Clipper Maid of the Seas operated the transatlantic leg of Flight 103, which had originated in Frankfurt, West Germany, on a Boeing 727. Both Pan Am and TWA had the habit of operating different flights under the same flight number. PA103 was bookable as a direct Frankfurt-New York itinerary, though a scheduled change of aircraft took place in London. At London Heathrow, passengers and their luggage on the feeder flight transferred directly onto the Boeing 747, along with unaccompanied interline luggage. The aircraft pushed back from the terminal at 18:04 and took off from runway 27R at 18:25 en route for New York JFK. Explosion and impact
The Clipper Maid of the Seas approached the corner of the Solway Firth at 19:01 and crossed the coast at 19:02 UTC. On scope, the aircraft showed transponder code, or "squawk," 0357 and flight level 310.
At this point, the Clipper Maid of the Seas was flying at 31,000 feet (9,400 m) on a heading of 316 degrees magnetic, and at a speed of 313 kn (580 km/h) calibrated airspeed. Subsequent analysis of the radar returns by RSRE concluded that the aircraft was tracking 321° (grid) and travelling at a ground speed of 803 km/h (499 mph; 434 knots).
Contact is lost 
At 18:58, the aircraft established two-way radio contact with Shanwick Oceanic Area Control in Prestwick on frequency 123.95 MHz. At 19:02:44, the clearance delivery officer at Shanwick transmitted its oceanic route clearance. The aircraft did not acknowledge this message. The Clipper Maid of the Seas ' "squawk" then flickered off. Air Traffic Control tried to make contact with the flight, with no response. At this time a loud sound was recorded on the cockpit voice recorder (CVR) at 19:02:50. Five radar echoes fanning out appeared, instead of one. Comparison of the cockpit voice recorder to the radar returns showed that, eight seconds after the explosion, the wreckage had a 1-nautical-mile (1.9 km) spread. ABritish Airways pilot, flying the Glasgow–London shuttle near Carlisle, called Scottish authorities to report that he could see a huge fire on the ground."
"The Bombing of PanAm Flight 103: Case Not Closed
By William Blum – Published March 2001
The newspapers were filled with pictures of happy relatives of the victims of the December 21, 1988 bombing of PanAm 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland. A Libyan, Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al Megrahi, had been found guilty of the crime the day before, January 31, 2001, by a Scottish court in the Hague, though his co-defendant, Al Amin Khalifa Fhimah, was acquitted. At long last there was going to be some kind of closure for the families.
But what was wrong with this picture?
What was wrong was that the evidence against Megrahi was thin to the point of transparency. Coming the month after the (s)election of George W. Bush, the Hague verdict could have been dubbed Supreme Court II, another instance of non-judicial factors fatally clouding judicial reasoning. The three Scottish judges could not have relished returning to the United Kingdom after finding both defendants innocent of the murder of 270 people, largely from the U.K. and the United States. Not to mention having to face dozens of hysterical victims’ family members in the courtroom. The three judges also well knew the fervent desires of the White House and Downing Street as to the outcome. If both men had been acquitted, the United States and Great Britain would have had to answer for a decade of sanctions and ill will directed toward Libya. One has to read the entire 26,000-word "Opinion of the Court", as well as being very familiar with the history of the case going back to 1988, to appreciate how questionable was the judges’ verdict.
The key charge against Megrahi – the sine qua non – was that he placed explosives in a suitcase and tagged it so it would lead the following charmed life:
1. loaded aboard an Air Malta flight to Frankfurt without an accompanying passenger;
2. transferred in Frankfurt to the PanAm 103A flight to London without an accompanying passenger;
3. transferred in London to the PanAm 103 flight to New York without an accompanying passenger.
To the magic bullet of the JFK assassination, can we now add the magic suitcase? ….
Comments about the Hague Court verdict
"The judges nearly agreed with the defense. In their verdict, they tossed out much of the prosecution witnesses’ evidence as false or questionable and said the prosecution had failed to prove crucial elements, including the route that the bomb suitcase took.” – New York Times analysis
"It sure does look like they bent over backwards to find a way to convict, and you have to assume the political context of the case influenced them." – Michael Scharf, professor, New England School of Law
"I thought this was a very, very weak circumstantial case. I am absolutely astounded, astonished. I was extremely reluctant to believe that any Scottish judge would convict anyone, even a Libyan, on the basis of such evidence." – Robert Black, Scottish law professor who was the architect of the Hague trial
"A general pattern of the trial consisted in the fact that virtually all people presented by the prosecution as key witnesses were proven to lack credibility to a very high extent, in certain cases even having openly lied to the court."
"While the first accused was found 'guilty', the second accused was found 'not guilty'. … This is totally incomprehensible for any rational observer when one considers that the indictment in its very essence was based on the joint action of the two accused in Malta."
"As to the undersigned's knowledge, there is not a single piece of material evidence linking the two accused to the crime. In such a context, the guilty verdict in regard to the first accused appears to be arbitrary, even irrational. … This leads the undersigned to the suspicion that political considerations may have been overriding a strictly judicial evaluation of the case … Regrettably, through the conduct of the Court, disservice has been done to the important cause of international criminal justice." – Hans Koechler, appointed as an international observer of the Lockerbie Trial by UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan
So, let’s hope that Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al Megrahi is really guilty. It would be a terrible shame if he spends the rest of his life in prison because back in 1990 Washington’s hegemonic plans for the Middle East needed a convenient enemy, which just happened to be his country.
This essay is a chapter in the book, Everything You Know Is Wrong, a sequel to the book You Are Being Lied To. Both books are published by Disinformation Books."

Indeed. If Giaka had come forward spontaneously because of the reward, and the investigators had believed him, it would have been bad enough. If he'd come forward spontaneously and they'd presented him as a witness despite suspicions he was making it up, it would have been worse.
But the CIA and DoJ deliberately solicited the false testimony from him, and not just with bribes but with threats as well. They presented him as a witness despite knowing that he was lying. They based the indictments and the 10-year blockade of Libya on a witness they knew was lying.
I find Colin Boyd's behaviour particularly disgusting. The man was Lord Advocate at the time. (The current holder of the position seems to be a worthy successor.) He LIED to the court in an attempt to conceal the evidence that Giaka was making stuff up for money. This is beyond contempt.

On all of these matters, the learned Advocate Depute reached the conclusion that there was nothing within the cables which bore on the defence case, either by undermining the Crown case or by advancing a positive case which was being made or may be made, having regard to the special defence... I emphasise that the redactions have been made on the basis of what is in the interests of the security of a friendly power... Crown counsel was satisfied that there was nothing within the documents which bore upon the defence case in any way."
One judge, Lord Coulsfield, then intervened: "Does that include, Lord Advocate... that Crown counsel, having considered the documents, can say to the Court that there is nothing concealed which could possibly bear on the credibility of this witness?"
The Lord Advocate replied: "Well, I'm just checking with the counsel who made that... there is nothing within these documents which relates to Lockerbie or the bombing of Pan Am 103 which could in any way impinge on the credibility of Majid on these matters."
It's funny, really, that Peter Fraser, who was Lord Advocate at the time of the indictments, comes over sometimes as a bumbling idiot, but more fundamentally honest. He's the one who cheerfully described Tony Gauci as "an apple short of a picnic".

I haven't found the original of that, the quote is from a press release issued by Miss Grahame. However, I think it's reasonable to assume it's true as the statement is said to be in the public domain.
I think if we're looking for a possible reason why the authorities were so desperate to acquire evidence to implicate Megrahi when none seems really to have existed, this may be the clue. Rolfe.”

"2.2 Emergency Services
As is well known, the Home Office awarded a contract to a BT led consortium under a PFI initiative known as PSRCP (later PSRC-S or "Airwave"). The intention was that a national BT Tetra network would be used by the emergency services and other specialist government agencies. Tetrapol manufacturers were excluded from this competition on the grounds that Tetrapol did not have an ETSI standard. After legal action and a "reasoned opinion" from the EU Commission, the UK Government has now accepted (since 1 June 2001) that it was wrong to have excluded Tetrapol and that equivalent PMR technologies should be allowed to compete.
The consequences of restricting competition has had a detrimental impact on the delivery of new radio communications technology to the Emergency Services and the Defence Forces and also resulted in over inflated and mounting costs to the UK taxpayer. We are also currently witnessing a lack of incentive to innovate on functionality and services and an exceptionally slow rollout. Particularly damaging to suppliers of Tetrapol systems is the fact that spectrum in the bands dedicated for European PMR services has been allocated exclusively to Airwave and the financially unstable public Tetra operator, Dolphin. Although Tetrapol suppliers can now compete in the UK market, the "monopolistic" spectrum allocation means that the playing field is not level. Cogent believes that it is essential that there should be consistency and equity regarding spectrum allocation for PMR services across Europe so that suppliers and customers can benefit from economies of scale. http://www.ofcom.org.uk/static/archive/ra/spectrum-review/responses/cogent-14august2001.pdf"

MASS DISASTERS MEAN TWO THINGS: MULTIPLE DEATHS AND DMORT DEPLOYMENT.
The call comes anytime jetliners go down, de-orbiting shuttles disintegrate, terrorists raze skyscrapers, or killer hurricanes roar ashore. David R. Senn, DDS, a member of the Bexar County, TX, Forensic Dental Team, was in Colorado when his call came on Saturday, August 27, 2005, 48 hours before Katrina made landfall. The commander of the Region VI Disaster Mortuary Operational Response Team (DMORT) was calling. Katrina was a monster, growing to a Category 5 hurricane on the Saffir Simpson scale, and headed straight for New Orleans. Destruction and death was certain.
Senn, a veteran forensic DMORT odontologist, was to report to Baton Rouge, LA, where a temporary morgue was being set up in an empty brick warehouse in nearby St. Gabriel, a Louisiana town of 6,000, once home to a leper colony. There would be bodies to identify. Senn altered his plans, caught the next plane back home to San Antonio, cleared his teaching schedule, collected his DMORT grab-and-go bag containing enough gear, clothing, and personal items to last about two weeks, and was in Dallas on Sunday, where his team assembled before caravanning 370 miles overnight to Baton Rouge, arriving at 3 A.M. Monday, August 29, just as Katrina began pounding the Gulf coast.
"We took 30 people from Dallas to Baton Rouge, including the DMORT Region VI commander, deputy commander, and administrative officer," said Senn, a diplomat of the American Board of Forensic Odontology (DABFO). Another deputy commander lived in Baton Rouge and was already on the job. Region VI covers Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Arkansas, and Louisiana.
The National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA) is credited with conceiving the concept of DMORT in the early 1980s. NFDA was concerned at the time about lack of standards handling the dead in mass casualty events. Protocols needed to be imposed on a process that had none. It was also soon apparent that the services of outside forensic professionals would be necessary to augment local resources during disaster response. The NFDA subsequently purchased the components of the first portable morgue, called a Disaster Portable Morgue Unit (DPMU).
DMORTs and DPMUs are now part of the National Disaster Medical System (NDMS), a section of Operations Branch of the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Response Division. NDMS determines when to activate, which DMORTS to deploy, and where the DPMUs are to be dispatched - usually any incident in which the number of casualties overwhelms local forensic or mortuary resources. The country is divided into ten DMORT regions, geographically similar to the ten Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) regions.
In 1997, the Aviation Disaster Family Assistance Act was signed into law in response to several aircraft accidents. The Act directed the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) to coordinate federal resources to identify victims. The NTSB then signed an agreement with NDMS to provide DMORT support in such cases. In 1998, a DMORT team specializing in bio-chemical fatalities was created in response to increasing concern for the release of weapons of mass destruction by terrorists. The DMORT idea has rooted. A small group of DMORT members is now routinely deployed in advance of situations where mass fatalities might result from terror attack, such as presidential state-of-the-union addresses, papal visits, or Olympic Games.
Since their 1993 formation, DMORTs have responded to about twenty incidents, from cemetery floods and plane crashes to train derailments and terror attacks. Senn, for instance, was part of the team called to attempt dental identification at the 2001 World Trade Center disaster and again at the 2003 STS-107 Columbia crash. DMORTs usually cover disaster incidents in their own area, although four DMORTs were dispatched to New York City following September 11, three to Washington, D.C., and one to Somerset County, PA. Katrina was even more unusual. All ten teams were mobilized to the Gulf Coast.
"That’s unprecedented," said Patricia Kaufmann, MD, commander of DMORT Region III (Pennsylvania, Maryland, Washington DC, Delaware, Virginia, and West Virginia). Still, the nationwide DMORT response to the Gulf Coast was scarcely enough. Remains were still being recovered seven weeks after the storm. Brian Chrz, DDS, DABFO, a Perry, OK, forensic odontologist said six weeks after the storm DMORTs were using dental resources wherever they could find them.
"We used military and public health dentists if they were available," he said."
