#2252: Marine Links Serco Black-Hand Navigators To Obama No-Fly Drones, Benghazi Wrongful Death

Plum City - ( United States Marine Field McConnell has linked Serco's Black-Hand* Navigators to Obama’s alleged use of Air Force drones to establish a no-fly zone in Benghazi on 9/11/2012 and allow the wrongful death of U.S. Ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens, at the hands of contract killers hired through the Blue Mountain security team by Hillary Clinton's former aides at the Department of State.

Black Hand* – Livery company captains or journeymen with "Privy Seal Licenses to Kill, Burn and Bribe" for the City of London's Honourable Artillery Company 1537, The Master Mariners and Air Pilots (formerly GAPAN) 1929 and The Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company of Massachusetts 1638 – whose alumni include U.S. Presidents James Monroe, Chester Alan Arthur, Calvin Coolidge and John F. Kennedy and – just a hunch – Barack Hussein Obama.

McConnell alleges that in 1962, the late pedophile Lord Privy Seal and commander of the Honourable Artillery Company, Lt. Col. Edward Heath, outsourced the U.K.'s four-minute warning system, the NPL cesium clock and Telstar timing to Serco's Black Hand journeymen who could then synchronize navigation, hit and burn operations in the United Kingdom and United States to within 1 μs of each other (previous efforts were only accurate to 2,000 μs).

McConnell claims that Serco CEO Rupert Soames and his brother former U.K. Minister of Defense Nicholas Soames developed Black Hand / Airbus no-fly drone maneuvers after France withdrew in 1998 from the air patrols with the United States and the United Kingdom intended to stop Iraqi aircraft from flying inside zones north of the 36th parallel and south of the 33rd.

McConnell claims that Serco – the C4I navigator for U.S. Air Force Space Command and the world’s largest air traffic controller – tested no-fly drone technologies during the Amalgam Virgo exercise of June 1-2, 2001 when the enemy – the United States Air Force! – was tricked into standing down for 30 hours of "Blue Air" time while Serco's Black Hand Navigators guided a droned aircraft along ad hoc waypoints in a simulated attack on the Capitol Building.

McConnell claims that Obama authorized a US Air Force Predator drone – apparently operated by Serco/Airbus Black Hand Navigators out of RAF Oakhanger – to maintain a no-fly zone from above the consulate while Ambassador Stevens was being taken away to be unlawfully killed with images of his torture allegedly back-hauled to the White House via the Air Force drone.

McConnell invites rebuttal of his allegation that Obama authorized Serco's Black-Hand Navigators to use Air Force drones to establish a no-fly zone in Benghazi on 9/11/2012 and is therefore responsible for the wrongful death of U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens.

"US 'too slow' to act as drone's cam captured Libya horror
October 21, 2012 | 4:00am
The United States had an unmanned Predator drone over its consulate in Benghazi during the attack that slaughtered four Americans — which should have led to a quicker military response, it was revealed yesterday.

"They stood, and they watched, and our people died," former CIA commander Gary Berntsen told CBS News.

The network reported that the drone and other reconnaissance aircraft observed the final hours of the hours-long siege on Sept. 11 — obtaining information that should have spurred swift action.

But as Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three colleagues were killed by terrorists armed with AK-47s and rocket-propelled grenade launchers, Defense Department officials were too slow to send in the troops, Berntsen said.

"They made zero adjustments in this. You find a way to make this happen," he fumed.

“There isn't a plan for every single engagement. Sometimes you have to be able to make adjustments."

The Pentagon said it moved a team of special operators from Central Europe to Sigonella, Italy — about an hour flight from Libya — but gave no other details.

Fighter jets and Specter AC-130 gunships — which could have been used to help disperse the bloodthirsty mob — were also stationed at three nearby bases, sources told the network.

When the attack began, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Martin Dempsey and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta "looked at available options, and the ones we exercised had our military forces arrive in less than 24 hours, well ahead of timelines laid out in established policies," a White House official told the network.

Even as the administration continues to vow that the perpetrators will be brought to justice, the man identified by witnesses as a ringleader in the attack continues to walk the streets of Libya without fear of arrest.

Ahmad Abu Khattala has admitted being at the consulate during the horrific attack but has yet to be questioned by any Libyan authorities.

Abu Khattala spoke to a New York Times reporter Thursday from a hotel patio as he sipped a strawberry frappe and mocked the US and Libyan governments.

"These reports say that no one knows where I am and that I am hiding," he boasted. "But here I am in the open, sitting in a hotel with you. I'm even going to pick up my sister's kids from school soon."

Lax security at the consulate was an open secret.

Stevens wrote a cable in June that there wasn't enough security at the consulate, and he noted there had been a recent spike in attacks against “international organizations and foreign interests,” ABC News said.

The ambassador wrote another cable in August that read, "A series of violent incidents has dominated the political landscape during the Ramadan holiday."

Stevens said that the incidents were "organized" and that the Libyan security force had "not coalesced into a stabilizing force and [provided] little deterrence."

Several requests for additional security in Benghazi were made to the State Department prior to the attack. They were all rejected.

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton tried to deflect blame from President Obama last week, saying the decision not to beef up guards was her responsibility.

"I'm in charge of the State Department's 60,000-plus people all over the world [at] 275 posts," she told CNN.

“The president and the vice president wouldn’t be knowledgeable about specific decisions that are made by security professionals. They're the ones who weigh all of the threats and the risks and the needs and make a considered decision."

The attack has become a major issue in the presidential campaign, with Mitt Romney saying Obama's failure to safeguard the consulate highlights his failure in foreign policy.

Romney has also hammered Obama for failing to immediately label it a terror attack and the administration for changing its story about whether the attack was a protest over an anti-Islamic movie or a coordinated strike.

The tragedy — and alleged security lapses leading up to the attack — will likely be brought up at tomorrow's final presidential debate.

The 90-minute debate will be moderated by Bob Schieffer of CBS News. Schieffer has listed five subject areas, with more time devoted to the Middle East and terrorism than any other topic."

"Our [Serco] Americas segment provides information technology (IT), professional, and management services primarily to the U.S. federal government, including every branch of the military, key federal civilian government such as the Department of Homeland Security, and the intelligence community.

Americas revenue grew by 1.7% to £455m (2.6% growth excluding currency effects), representing 21% of Group revenue (1H 2009: 23%), reflecting organic growth in our portfolio and a lower number of new contract starts in the period.

In the Americas, we continued to see demand for programme management services for the intelligence community, command and control (C4I) solutions for the Air Force, and logistics sustainment activities for the Army supporting the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. We are seeing a high level of bidding activity, with over US$3bn of bid proposals submitted.
A key focus for our Americas business in the first half was to identify opportunities for collaboration across our business units, and to ensure an integrated approach that leverages the full range of our capabilities and expertise across our entire customer base. Examples include expanding the use of our Command, Control, Communications and Computer skills, which we currently provide to the Air Force Space Command and the US Navy, across all branches of the military, to the Department of Homeland Security, and to the intelligence community. We are also using our enterprise architecture capabilities developed with the Air orce Space Command to support other Department of Defense agencies and commands, and exploring opportunities to use our economic cost analysis expertise with the US Air Force and in the intelligence community, and to expand our logistics support to additional military bases."

"Left To Die: Obama Knew Benghazi Attack Was Terrorism But Did Nothing
Oct 25, 2012 | 4:16 PM
Oct. 25, 2012 - A new video (below) shows how the Obama Administration was more than merely negligent in the deaths of Ambassador Chris Stevens and four others in the deadly attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya on Sept. 11, 2012. Email from the doomed U.S. consulate just before and during the attack show that the attack was not a simple protest. Real-time video of the attack was watched in the White House situation room.  Obama, it seems, intentionally left the U.S. consulate in Benghazi vulnerable and easy pickings for terrorists. That's a strong statement, but they received repeated requests for more security from Stevens in the months leading up to the Sept. 11 attack. Instead of listening to the ambassador and giving him more security staff, security was actually decreased.

IN REAL TIME: An excellent report by Peter Ferrara at (Oct. 25) notes that documents released by the House Oversight Committee show that on Sept. 11, "the White House situation room starts receiving emails at about 1 pm that the mission is under hostile surveillance. The only response was that the Pentagon sends a drone armed with a video camera so that everyone in Washington can see what transpires in real time, as it happens, at the White House, at the State Department, at the Pentagon, at the CIA."
 You may recall that in the hours and days after the attack, Sec. of State Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama both blamed the violence on spontaneous protests in response to an anti-Muslim video. This, we now know, was not true.

Worse yet, Clintion and Obama were lying. Theyknew that it was a well-planned terrorist attack and not an ordinary protest that got out of hand.

"The drone documents no crowds protesting any video," continues the Forbes report. "But at 4 pm Washington receives an email from the Benghazi mission that it is under military style attack."

The subject of that email: "U.S. Diplomatic Mission in Benghazi Under Attack."

The email from the consulate in Benghazi said that the consulate was "under attack." It said nothing about any protests. "Ambassador Stevens, who is currently in Benghazi, and four COM personnel are in the compound safe haven," said the email.

"Just one hour flight time away were U.S. Air Force bases," says Forbes, "that could have been rousted in minutes to send fighter planes and attack helicopters that could have routed the attackers in minutes of fighting." Officials in Washington watched the events in real time. No help was sent. "Obama went to bed,"noted BeforeItsNews, "knowing that the embassy was under attack and then went to a fundraiser in Las Vegas the next morning."


"The 60Minutes’ Benghazi segment with Lara Logan aired on Oct. 27, 2013 and reignited the Benghazi controversy once again. It included interviews with former US Embassy Libya DCM Gregory Hicks, and Green Beret Commander, Lieutenant Colonel Andy Wood. We’ve heard from Mr. Hicks previously and blogged about it here: “This Week With George Stephanopoulos” Features Former Embassy Tripoli DCM Gregory Hicks and Benghazi Hearing: No Kaboom as Promised, But More Details Fill Up the Dark Space of Sadness.

But we haven't heard previously from this Morgan Jones fellow. That’s apparent helping to keep U.S. diplomats and military leaders safe for the last decade." He was reportedly the "security chief for Blue Mountain Security" in charge of the Libyan guard force.

Shortly after the segment aired, Media Matters cited Fox News correspondent Adam Housley as having said that he had previously spoken to the man "a number of times and then we stopped speaking to him when he asked for money."

The same day that the 60 Minutes segment aired, Los Angeles Times' Richard A. Serrano reported that two of theDOJ's key witnesses in the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack were summoned to the Oversight Committee earlier in October and "grilled for hours in separate legal depositions" conducted in "a highly guarded and secret interviews."  The report identified the Diplomatic Security agents as Alec Henderson, who was stationed in Benghazi, and John Martinec, then based in Tripoli. Henderson was reportedly interviewed on Oct. 8 for eight hours and Martinec was interviewed for five hours on Oct. 10.  The report further says that Oversight Committee chairman Darrell Issa earlier had also demanded access to a third agent, David Ubben, who was seriously injured in the Benghazi attack. According to LAT, Mr. Issa learned the identities of the three agents from Gregory Hicks, the former deputy chief of mission in Libya, who testified before the committee in spring.

On a related note, did you hear that Senator Graham is exceptionally pissed about Benghazi and has promised to block "every appointment in the US Senate" until the Benghazi survivors are produced?   Apparently, he did not know that two DS agents were right next door on October 8 for legal depos that lasted for altogether 13 hours.  Pardon me? Is it purely coincidental that there are bad news in the polls, and that a primary is potentially a headache? Well, is it?

In any case, on October 28, Julia Frifield, the State Department’s Assistant Secretary for Legislative Affairs responded to Senator Graham’s previous September 24 letter concerning the Benghazi survivors availability.  Read the response here.

On October 29, Mr. Morgan's book, The Embassy House published by an imprint of Simon & Schuster went on sale; available in hardcover, Kindle and Audible; the cheapest edition via Kindle currently selling at $10.99.

Previously, in September 2013, Deadline reported that Thunder Roadhas acquired The Embassy House to use as the basis for a feature about the 2012 attack on the American diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya,
“The film will be written by Taylor Sheridan, whose adaptation of Comancheria has Marc Forster attached. Thunder Road is producing Sheridan's script Sicario, and they've set him to script a look at Benghazi that is one part Black Hawk Down and another Lawrence Of Arabia. //UK-based Luke Speed of the Marjacq Agency repped the book and Gersh's Bob Hohman and Bayard Maybank and Elevate repped the scribe. Thunder Road used its own resources to buy the book and will fund development, and hasn’t yet enlisted a studio."

Also in September, The Hollywood Reporter says that HBO has optioned another book, Under Fire: The Untold Story of the Attack in Benghazi, with Jerry Weintraub on board to executive produce.  Under Fire is authored by former DSS Agent and Stratfor VP Fred Burton and Samuel M. Katz and is “Based on the exclusive cooperation of eyewitnesses and confidential sources within the intelligence, diplomatic, and military communities” according to the book’s Amazon page.

If they start filming soon, will the movies be ready in time for the 2nd anniversary of the attack or the 2014 election?

On October 31, WaPo’s Karen DeYoung threw some more fuel on the Benghazi fire:

"[I]n a written account that Jones, whose real name was confirmed as Dylan Davies by several officials who worked with him in Benghazi, provided to his employer three days after the attack, he told a different story of his experiences that night.

In Davies's 2 1 / 2-page incident report to Blue Mountain, the Britain-based contractor hired by the State Department to handle perimeter security at the compound, he wrote that he spent most of that night at his Benghazi beach-side villa. Although he attempted to get to the compound, he wrote in the report, "we could not get anywhere near . . . as roadblocks had been set up."

On November 1, The Cable's John Hudson reported that Star Benghazi ‘Witness’ May Not Have Been an Actual Witness:

“In contrast with the 60 Minutes account, which saw him knocking out terrorists with the butt end of his rifle and scaling a 12-foot wall the night of the attack, the Blue Mountain report has Jones at his beach-side villa for the majority of the night. Despite an attempt to make it to the compound, Jones wrote that “we could not get anywhere near … as roadblocks had been set up."

Further The Cable points out that "the book titled The Embassy Housewas published by Threshold Editions, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, which is a part of CBS Corporation, which owns 60 Minutes — a fact not disclosed in the 60 Minutes story.

Oh, dear …. is that what’s called cross promotion or something?
On November 2, The Daily Beast’s Josh Rogin and Eli Lake reportedthat Dylan Davies, aka: Morgan Jones denied writing the incident reportcited by Karen DeYoung’s report in WaPo.  The Daily Beast had obtained a copy of the Blue Mountain Group 4-page incident report that lists Dylan Davies, "PM" as the "Name of Person Reporting." The report is dated 13:00 hours, September 14, 2012, unsigned and the published copy does not include any indication whether the report was emailed or faxed to the Blue Mountain Group. See for yourself here via Josh Rogin/ScribD.

The Daily Beast report described Jones/Davies as a "Benghazi Whistleblower" and says that "Davies said he did not know who leaked the report to the Post but said he suspected it was the State Department, an allegation that could not be independently corroborated." More below:
"A State Department official confirmed it matches the version sent to the U.S. government by Davies's then-employer Blue Mountain Group, the private security company based in Britain, on Sept. 14, 2012, and subsequently provided to Congressional committees investigating the Benghazi attacks.

Davies said he believed there was a coordinated campaign to smear him. This week, Media Matters, a progressive media watchdog, sent a public letter to CBS News asking it to retract the 60 Minutes Benghazi piece on the basis of the Washington Post article. On the Fox News Channel, reporter Adam Housley claimed on air this week that Davies asked for money in exchange for an interview. Davies denied this charge. 60 Minutes has stood by its reporting."

Media Matters and Fox News in a coordinated smear campaign?  If I were drunk at 10 o’clock in the morning, that still sounds crazy bad.

The Blue Mountain Group was snared early on in the Benghazi controversy. Remember that time when the State Department spokesperson Victoria Nuland said this three days after the attack: "I can tell you that at no time did we contract with a private security firm in Libya – at no time."  That turned out to be false. This was covered by Danger Room in September 2012:  Feds Hired British Security Firm to Protect Benghazi Consulate.
The contract is a curious one, of course, since security in the State Department falls under the Worldwide Security Protection (WSP) program which has core funding for the protection of life, property, and information of the agency. WSP funding supports not just domestic facilities but also  worldwide guard force protecting overseas diplomatic missions and residences.  Defense Industry Daily has a list of contractors for the 5-year $10 billion WPS security contract inked in 2010.  The Blue Mountain Group is not on that list.  One wonders, given the presence of OGA in Benghazi, if this was in fact an OGA contract, though  the paperwork does say it is a State contract. Or it is possible that none of the WPS contractors are allowed to operate in Libya, so State had to procure services from another provider?  But then, that does not explain why three days after the attack, the State spokesperson was adamant that “at no time did we contract with a private security firm in Libya."

A redacted copy of the Blue Mountain Group contract has now been released after a FOIA by Judicial Watch and can be read/downloaded here.
One thing more. On October 14, 2012, UK's The Telegraph reportedabout Blue Mountain, described as a small British firm based in south Wales:
"Blue Mountain, which is run by a former member of the SAS, received paper work to operate in Libya last year following the collapse of Col Muammar Gaddafi's regime. It worked on short term contacts to guard an expatriate housing compound and a five-star hotel in Tripoli before landing the prestigious US deal.

But Blue Mountain’s local woes appears to have hampered a coordinated response by the compound’s defenders when the late assault kicked off.
Darryl Davies, the manager of the Benghazi contract for Blue Mountain, flew out of the city hours before the attack was launched. The Daily Telegraph has learned that relations between the firm and its Libyan partner had broken down, leading to the withdrawal of Mr Davies.

Abdulaziz Majbiri, a Blue Mountain guard at the compound, told the Daily Telegraph that they were effectively abandoned and incapable of defending themselves on the night of the attack."

So far, no one has gone back to clarify or straighten out that story.
And because the Benghazi controversy simply refuses to die, CNN isreporting that a CIA operatives will testify behind closed doors at a classified Benghazi hearing on the week of November 11.

Then yesterday, Politico reported that Rep. Jason Chaffetz  "slammed the source behind a report that revealed the real name of a British security agent in Benghazi, which was published in The Washington Post."
"I don’t know who did it, but to release a covert agent’s name to endanger his life should be an absolute outrage in this town,” Chaffetz said Monday on Fox New’s "Fox and Friends" when asked if he thought the White House was behind the leak.

I was seriously looking for something like this to pop up because … hey, it's too attractive to pass up if you want some screen time.  But now Morgan Jones/Dylan Davies is not only a "whistleblower"  he is also a "covert agent"?

Well, I’ll be …. the Oversight Committee hearing is coming soon.
Have you noticed that Benghazi is not only a popular subject with politicians; it has also gained popularity in the Amazon marketplace? The Benghazi tragedy has spawned not just books but also bumper stickers, a Benghazi album from Moon Records, Cover Up (The Benghazi Song), a Benghazi Memorandum Book,a Benghazi Record Book, whatevs.  There are also Benghazi cartoons, mousepads, coffee mugs, coasters, bottles, tshirts, a pinback button, and a Benghazi memorial license plate. There are more Benghazi-branded products available via including  Benghazi underwear and panties; don't  miss the Benghazi Blame and Good Riddance classic thongs. Benghazi products are also available at; don’t miss the doggie clothing line.
If you're renovating, there is even a Benghazi light switch cover for a 2 plug outlet.

And now my grey matter is seriously hyperventilating and need to drown itself in sorrow."

"What You Should Know About Creating Seamless Regional Public Safety Communications Networks
Author: Karen Fink, Airbus DS Communications

Florida is the third most populous state in the U.S. with over 19 million residents, and is projected to continue growing - and aging - at a steady rate over the next decade providing public safety officials the mandatory task of not only managing growth, but being concerned about functionality and efficiency of their emergency communication networks. Events such as the terrorist attacks on 9/11, Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy, Sandy Hook school shooting and Boston Marathon bombing have highlighted the need for interoperable mission critical public safety communication across agencies, jurisdictions, and borders.

At a recent symposium on public safety communication hosted by Airbus DS Communications in Tampa, public safety and emergency management officials gathered to learn more about new technologies available to enable them to create interoperable communications networks.  New technologies such as Next Generation 9-1-1 (NG9-1-1), Project 25 (P25), and Long Term Evolution (LTE) can connect municipalities, enable interoperable communications between agencies, and improve operations while reducing overall costs to the community. Among the symposium’s key takeaways and what you need to know about implementing improved communication systems:

Component interoperability is both a key to lowering total cost of ownership and enabling inter-agency/inter-jurisdiction public safety communications. Chances are good that different municipalities and even public safety agencies (like police, fire, EMS) within the same municipality use different equipment that may or may not talk to one another, making inter-agency communication difficult if not impossible.  That’s why it is critical to find vendors committed to providing open, non-proprietary systems that will work with other vendors' components, as long as they are compliant with the same standard.

One of the four requirements of NG9-1-1 is to integrate and interoperate with public safety entities beyond the PSAP.  Other PSAPs, EOCs, DHS, and emergency management entities will be able to interconnect to the NG9-1-1 network and system, as well as acquire and pass data between all entities.
Across the U.S. more and more public safety agencies are beginning to regionalize by uniting across their geographical boundaries to share resources and become more efficient. Regionalization, including 9-1-1 call taking and P25 land mobile radio services, also helps them keep pace with the latest technologies needed to protect and serve.

Today, we are seeing more systems evolving from a standalone silo to a regional one. A recent regionalization success story that would be a perfect model for Florida’s exploding communities looking to build a regional public safety network is the Northern Tier Regional Communications Project — a group of ten counties in Pennsylvania including Clearfield, Jefferson, Elk, Cameron, McKean, Clarion, Warren, Crawford, Forest and Erie. The Northern Tier counties set out to replace their aging 9-1-1 systems in 2011 with the state’s first regional public safety network, which went live in 2013. By forming the regional network, the counties saved $2.3 million upfront and more than $250,000 in annual maintenance costs. 

What are the first steps to look at for counties that may want to regionalize? First, create a bond with the people with whom you work every day. Building trust is crucial in creating a regionalized system where you share control with others.

Step two is having political buy-in. Meet with each 9-1-1 director and county commissioner and explain in detail how the system will work.  Once you get political buy-in, you have a project that can move forward.
Finally, it is very important to keep everyone, including elected officials and the media, apprised of what you are doing. Emergency responders and of course, residents, want to know there is still going to be someone there to personally answer the phone.

"Many counties all over Florida and the country are realizing there is a finite amount of money for emergency 9-1-1 centers," explained Bob Freinberg, CEO of Airbus DS Communications. "Through regionalization, counties can fund what they need with a significant cost saving. Plus, they find that by working together they not only increase the services they can provide their citizens but the survivability of their centers as well."
