Black Hand* – Lloyd's Register of captains or journeymen with "Privy Seal Licenses to Kill, Burn, Bribe" for the City of London's Honourable Artillery Company 1537; 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 – perhaps – Barack 'Down Low' Obama.
McConnell alleges that in 1962, the late pedophile Lord Privy Seal and then commander of the Honourable Artillery Company, Lt. Col. Edward Heath, outsourced the U.K.'s 4-minute warning system, the NPL cesium clock and Telstar timing to Serco whose Lloyd's Register of Black Hand actors can now spot, shoot, snuff, spin and spoil drone 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 Nicholas Soames – the brother of Serco CEO Rupert Soames and former U.K. Minister of Defense – used ground staff to pilot drones to enforce no-fly zones in Iraq and conceal the production of live-broadcast snuff films financed through UN Oil-For-Food revenues paid into Serco's shareholder accounts with AXA (BNP Paribas) and JPMorgan in New York.
McConnell claims that Soames outsourced Black Hand drone operations to a Serco joint venture with Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) while Serco's National Visa Center agents set up a ground-staff pilot network with FAA Contract Towers for Obama's sleeper cells in America.
McConnell claims that Serco – the Black Hand navigator for U.S. Air Force Space Command – stood the Air Force down for 30 hours of "Blue Air" time on 9/11 while using IAI drones and presidential ground staff to pilot the "first live-broadcast mass snuff film in human history."
McConnell claims Serco provided Obama's ground staff with the Black Hand drones needed to pilot assets through a live-broadcast snuff film with "animated effects, music, narration and an extended 'confession' in a studio setting" before the money shot of "Caged And Burnt Alive".
McConnell invites rebuttal of his allegation that Obama's ground staff used Serco's outsourced Black-Hand drone services to pilot assets and actors through a live-broadcast snuff film with the late Jordanian pilot Muadh al Kasasbeh playing the lead role in "Caged And Burnt Alive".

"Barbarians Burn Pilot Alive: ISIS Will Never Release A Living Prisoner
ISIS released a video showing a Jordanian pilot being burned alive—and the murder may have happened weeks before they tried to ransom him for a would-be suicide bomber.
The so-called Islamic State has released a video of a man, almost certainly Jordanian pilot Muadh al Kasasbeh, being burned alive in a cage. Jordanian officials are saying that despite cynical efforts by the group widely known as ISIS to bargain for the man's life in recent negotiations, he probably was killed as early as January 3. His F-16 had crashed and he was captured in ISIS-controlled territory in Syria on December 24.
Jordan vowed an "earth-shattering" response, and hours after the video was released the government said it executed two prisoners: Sajida al Rishawi, a female would-be al Qaeda suicide bomber, and Ziad al Karbouli, also reported to have been an al Qaeda operative. Last week, Jordan had said it would release al Rishawi, who was on death row pending an appeal, in exchange for the pilot, but wanted proof he was still alive. Unconfirmed reports had been circulating for some time that he might already have been killed.
Unlike recent videos of the Japanese captives beheaded by ISIS, which were brief, hastily produced amalgams of a few still photographs and a recorded voice, this one has sophisticated animated effects, music, narration and an extended "confession" by the young first lieutenant in a studio setting. The production values alone lend credence to the idea he was killed long before ISIS claimed it would spare his life in exchange for that of the failed female suicide bomber in Jordanian custody. That now appears to have been a bit of opportunism in the middle of the failed negotiations to ransom the Japanese.
So, once again ISIS is producing horror films that it hopes will have a political impact, and in this one there is no doubt its target is Jordan’s government and its military, which ISIS accuses of supporting the "crusaders" fighting against the so-called "caliphate."
This is the kind of video using 21st-century technology to promote medieval brutality that has played well among gullible young men, and a few young women, who have flocked to the ISIS banner from abroad. The question is how it will play with the Jordanian and other Arab coalition partners arrayed against ISIS, because they clearly are the targets of this psychological operation.
Al Kasasbeh, who has a black eye in the video, presents a detailed picture of the Arab and Western air forces deployed against ISIS and the munitions they use, with interspersed pictures of burned babies and men being dug out from under rubble. Then he is paraded in front of uniformed men wearing balaclavas and carrying Kalashnikovs. He is put into a cage amid the wreckage of buildings presumably bombed by coalition planes. His orange prisoner suite is wet with some substance. He is set ablaze. The camera stays on him until his blackened flesh begins to melt away from his face and he falls over. Then a backhoe dumps earth on top of the cage and rolls over it. A burned hand is shown protruding from beneath shattered concrete.
But it is the beginning of the film (after the invocation, "In the name of God, most Merciful, most Compassionate") and the end that tells us the most about the ISIS psy-war strategy.
The first image in the video is of Jordan's King Abdullah speaking on the Charlie Rose Show in the United States on December 5. The king says that when Jordan joined the coalition, the F-16 pilots were told only volunteers had to take part. "Every single pilot raised his hand and stepped forward," the king tells Charlie Rose in the video clip used by ISIS.
In fact, in Jordan there was some negative reaction to that interview at the time. It appeared to many Jordanians as if the king was playing to an American audience, not to their own concerns. Many had expressed doubts about whether the coalition war really was Jordan's war.
ISIS, in this video, is trying to up the ante, not only denouncing Jordan's intelligence and military cooperation with the “crusaders” and with Israel, but also naming 11 more Jordanian Air Force personnel at the end of the 21-minute video, showing pictures of them and pinpointing their alleged residences on a satellite map. "Wanted Dead," says the legend above each figure's name and photograph.
The information and photos could easily have been obtained from al Kasasbeh's cell phone if he had it with him, but the effect that ISIS clearly wants in the video is one of omniscience.
A statement posted in the middle of this montage, coming shortly after the horrific immolation, says: "On this occasion, the Islamic State announces a reward of 100 gold dinars to whoever kills a crusader pilot. The diwan for state security has released a list containing the names of Jordanian pilots participating in the campaign. So, good tidings to whoever supports his religion and achieves a kill that will liberate him from hellfire." Such is the reward, apparently, for assassins. King Abdullah clearly is undeterred. He arrived in Washington on Tuesday where his government signed a new memorandum of understanding with the United States upping support payments from $600 million a year to $1 billion a year.
The king met with President Barack Obama on Tuesday evening and then cut short his visit. In a televised address, Abdullah called ISIS "a terrorist, cowardly organization." The ISIS strategy obviously is to try to turn Jordanians against the monarch and the U.S-led coalition, exploiting the discontent of some powerful tribes, including al Kasasbeh's, and attempting to humiliate the armed forces. But the grotesque nature of the video and the gross deceit of the murderers who tried to bargain with the life of the man they'd killed may well have the opposite effect. King Abdullah declared, "We stand today with the family of the martyr and the hero, Muadh, and with our people, and with our armed forces in this calamity, which has struck all Jordanians. In these difficult moments, it is the duty of all our sons and daughters to stand together and show what Jordanians are truly made of." The crisis would make Jordanians "stronger and more unified," he said.
In what is likely to be a long war, more such incidents can be expected. What is unlikely is that any government will take seriously from now on overtures by ISIS to ransom or otherwise negotiate the release of prisoners.
By killing the Jordanian pilot after (or, indeed, even before) his government had offered a prisoner swap, the terrorist group has affirmed that it has no interest in negotiating seriously, and that will compel Jordan and other governments to launch military rescue missions rather than try to dialogue for their citizens’ release, a former U.S. official with extensive experience in hostage negotiations and rescues told The Daily Beast."

LOD, Israel - The Canadian military wants to purchase unmanned aerial vehicles that can attack targets as the U.S. military does now in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan with its hunter/killer Predator drones, a move that has sparked interest from as far off as Israel.
BY THE EDMONTON JOURNALDECEMBER 12, 2008 LOD, Israel - The Canadian military wants to purchase unmanned aerial vehicles that can attack targets as the U.S. military does now in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan with its hunter/killer Predator drones, a move that has sparked interest from as far off as Israel.
Project JUSTAS, which could cost as much as $750 million and would give the Canadian military a capability that only a handful of other countries possess, has caused a buzz at Israel Aerospace Industries and its Canadian partner, MacDonald Dettwiler of Richmond, B.C.
The Joint Unmanned Surveillance Target Acquisition System project was outlined in a letters of interest notice published by Public Works Canada this fall. The LOI sought feedback by early this month on "this forthcoming requirement ... to provide intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, target acquisition and all-weather precision strike capabilities in support of Canadian Forces operations worldwide."
Lt.-Col. Alex Tupper, director of air requirements for UAVs in Ottawa, said that the LOI was something like "a market survey ... . Before we go before the government with this project we want a really good idea of what the industry can do about cost, schedules, risk and technical feasibility."
While the offensive-capable drones would not be in service prior to Canada's scheduled withdrawal from Afghanistan in 2011, IAI and MDA received a $100-million contract in August for an undisclosed number of Heron surveillance drones to provide intelligence to Canadian combat troops in Afghanistan. The aircraft weighs about 1,000 kilograms and can fly for about 40 hours at an altitude of 10,000 metres.
The contract followed publication of the report by former deputy prime minister John Manley which recommended that Canada withdraw its troops from Afghanistan if serious shortcomings in aerial reconnaissance were not urgently addressed.
"From micro UAVs to strategic and tactical UAVs, we don't leave any niche open," said Shmuel Falik, IAI's marketing manager, before conducting a tour of a hangar at Ben Gurion Airport, where toylike UAVs weighing only a few kilograms were parked beside others that were bigger than a Cessna. "We are looking to take care of all Canada's needs, international and domestic."
If the Canadian government approves Project JUSTAS, IAI and MDA hope to sell Canada the much larger Heron TP, a 4,650-kilogram drone with the same wingspan as a Boeing 737 and powered by a Canadian-built Pratt & Whitney turbo prop engine. The Heron TP can carry a 1,000-kilogram payload and stay aloft for 36 hours at an altitude of about 15,000 metres. As well as possessing a lethal strike capability, the aircraft could be used in a pure surveillance role over battlefields and for long-range Arctic and maritime patrols.
The Israeli and Canadian partners hope that their current Heron contract will help them to get a foot in the door before Canada formally seeks bids for an even more capable multi-purpose drone next year.
"What this contract gives us is a lot of experience with UAVs, with the concept, the supply chain, the logistics, support," said David Hargreaves, vice-president of integrated information solutions for MDA, which is providing technical support for the drones that are being leased. "It fits with other things that we do such as radars, satellites and reconnaissance."
The main rivals for the JUSTAS contract are expected to be California-based General Atomics Aeronautical Systems, which makes the Predator, and another Israeli company, Elbit Systems.
However, Tupper said the air force expected other bidders, too, adding that "in our minds there is no front-runner whatsoever." Falik of IAI, said: "At the tactical level you have a lot of competitors because the entry ticket is a lot lower than for the strategic level. When you get to the strategic level there aren't many companies with viable solutions."
Training on the Herons that Canada leased for Afghanistan was conducted with Israeli experts and MDA technicians at CFB Suffield, Alta., and has involved troops slated to deploy to Kandahar early next year. "From all reports that I have received from a wide variety of sources, we're satisfied that the objectives have been met," Tupper said of the Herons' performance so far.
MDA is to send a team of Canadian technicians to Afghanistan to maintain the Herons. Missions will be pre-programmed by air force personnel who will then monitor the flights from computer consoles on the ground.
Missions can be changed by sending data to the UAV's on-board computers if, for example, troops as far away as 200 kilometres from technicians on the ground have something that they want looked at.
