Sunset Interviews [1:19 Group Captain Andy Bacon ADC MA BSc] RAF.
McConnell notes that HSBC is Serco's banker and a major shareholder with Her Majesty's Government and its funds and is therefore able to bribe or extort protection from HMG for the operation of RAF Northolt as a hub to move spies and killers around the world and enforce Black Hand control of the global drug trade.
McConnell claims HSBC has used Serco (formerly RCA GB 1929) to run the Northolt drug-hub operations since the late Black-Hand Prince of Wales (later Duke of Windsor) merged the King's Flight into No. 161 (Special Duties) Squadron, which, with 138 Squadron, was tasked with moving spies or killers with forged documents and equipment through Nazi-occupied Europe.
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; 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 – perhaps – Barack 'Con Air Visa' Obama.
McConnell alleges that in 1962, HSBC ordered the late pedophile Lord Privy Seal and then Black Hand commander of the Honourable Artillery Company, Lt. Col. Edward Heath, to outsource the 4-minute warning system, NPL cesium clock and Telstar timing to Serco staff at Northolt who can now spot, shoot, snuff, spin and spoil drug 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 HSBC ordered his sister Kristine Marcy – the former Senior Counsel for the INS Detention and Deportation Program – to integrate Serco's National Visa Center and Con Air services with NetJets and The Queen's Flight aircraft at Northolt and help the RAF Northolt base commander to prepare the remote hijacking of droned Boeing aircraft for the 9/11 attacks on America.
McConnell notes that Serco's banker used accounts maintained in 2007 by Sinaloa front companies in the Cayman Islands to pay an aircraft company for the purchase of a plane later impounded by Mexican cops while being used fly in two tons of cocaine from Venezuela.
McConnell claims that HSBC ordered the Black Hand Northolt base commander, Group Captain Bacon, to prepare the remote hijacking of MH 17 and have Serco deploy "experts of unknown provenance" in the Kiev control tower and at the crash scene near Donetsk for the spoliation of evidence which might otherwise expose the RAF Northolt drug hub.
McConnell invites Group Captain Bacon to rebut his allegation that HSBC has been operating a Black Hand drug hub at RAF Northolt from where Serco deployed drones for the hijacking of MH Flight 17 and the crash near Donetsk where 283 passengers and 15 crew died on 17 July 2014.

"Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 (MH17/MAS17)[a] was a scheduled international passenger flight from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur that crashed on 17 July 2014 after being shot down, killing all 283 passengers and 15 crew on board. The Boeing 777-200ER airliner lost contact about 50 km (31 mi) from the Ukraine–Russia border and crashed near Torez inDonetsk Oblast, Ukraine, 40 km (25 mi) from the border, over territory controlled by pro-Russian separatists. The crash occurred during the Battle in Shakhtarsk Raion, part of the ongoing war in Donbass, in an area controlled by the Donbass People's Militia. According to American and German intelligence sources, the plane was shot down by pro-Russian separatists using a Buk surface-to-air missile fired from the territory which they controlled.The Russian government blamed the Ukrainian government. The Dutch Safety Board is currently leading an investigation into the incident and issued a preliminary report on 9 September 2014; a final accident report is expected in August 2015.
Evidence from open sources indicated that separatists in Ukraine were in control of a Buk missile launcher on 17 July and transported it from Donetsk to Snizhne. This is based on tracing the path of the missile, analysis of shrapnel patterns in the wreckage, voice print analysis of separatists' conversations in which they claimed credit for the strike, and that photos and other data from social media sites all indicated that Russian-backed separatists had fired the missile.
Immediately after the crash, a post appeared on the VKontaktesocial media website attributed to Igor Girkin, leader of the Donbass separatists, claiming responsibility for shooting down an AN-26, but after it became clear that a civilian aircraft had been shot down, the separatists denied any involvement, and the post was taken down. Russia has said that Ukraine "bears full, total responsibility" for the crash because it happened in Ukrainian airspace. The Ukrainian government states the missile was launched by "Russian professionals and coordinated from Russia". Malaysia said intelligence reports on the downing of MH17 were "pretty conclusive", but more investigation was necessary to be certain that a surface-to-air missile brought down the plane, after which they would look at the criminal side. The GermanFederal Intelligence Service reportedly concluded that the plane was shot down by pro-Russian separatists using a captured Ukrainian Buk system. CT scans of MH17 victims showed 'non aircraft metal' and on 19 December 2014 the Ukrainian SBU security service said that some of the bodies contained metal fragments that indicated the plane was shot down by a surface-to-air missile. The crash of Flight 17 was the fifth Boeing 777 hull loss. The crash was Malaysia Airlines' worst incident and its second of the year, after the unrelated disappearance of Flight 370 four months earlier."

"RAF Northolt (IATA: NHT, ICAO: EGWU) is a Royal Air Force station in South Ruislip, 2 nautical miles (3.7 km; 2.3 mi) from Uxbridge in the London Borough of Hillingdon, west London. Approximately 6 mi (10 km) north of London Heathrow Airport, the station also handles a large number of private civil flights. Northolt has one runway in operation, spanning 1,687 m × 46 m (5,535 ft × 151 ft), with a groovedasphalt surface.
Northolt pre-dates the establishment of the Royal Air Force by almost three years, having opened in May 1915. Originally established for the Royal Flying Corps, it has the longest history of continuous use of any RAF airfield. Before the outbreak of theSecond World War, the station was the first to take delivery of the Hawker Hurricane. The station played a key role during the Battle of Britain, when fighters from several of its units, including No. 303 Polish Fighter Squadron, engaged enemy aircraft as part of the defence of London. It became the first base to have squadrons operatingSupermarine Spitfire aircraft within German airspace. During the construction of Heathrow Airport, Northolt was used for commercial civil flights, becoming the busiest airport in Europe for a time and a major base for British European Airways. More recently the station has become the hub of British military flying operations in the London area. Northolt has been extensively redeveloped since 2006 to accommodate these changes, becoming home to the British Forces Post Office, which moved to a newly constructed headquarters and sorting office on the site. Units currently based at RAF Northolt are No. 32 (The Royal) Squadron, the Queen's Colour Squadron, 600 (City of London) Squadron, No 1 Aeronautical Information Documents Unit, the Air Historical Branch and the Central Band of the RAF. The station has also been used as a filming location for productions made at Pinewood Studios. ….
Since 1 June 1998, station commanders have served as aides-de-camp to Her Majesty the Queen. The station received the Freedom of Entry to the London Borough of Hillingdon on 11 May 2000. This allowed military personnel to march through the borough in full uniform, an honour granted by the council in light of 2000 being the 60th anniversary of the Battle of Britain and the 85th anniversary of the opening of RAF Northolt. The neighbouring RAF Uxbridge station had received the same honour in 1960.
SENATOR PROBES OBAMA'S LAUNDER-GATE 'COVER-UP'
Threatens to block confirmation of Loretta Lynch
Published: 2 days ago
JEROME R. CORSI About | Email | Archive
WASHINGTON – A member of the Senate Judiciary Committee has opened an investigation he believes could threaten the confirmation of Obama’s nominee to replace Eric Holder as attorney general, Loretta Lynch.
After his staff quizzed a whistleblower provided by WND, the office of Sen. David Vitter, R-La., announced it is investigating why Lynch, in her capacity as U.S.
Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, allowed banking giant HSBC to avoid criminal prosecution of bank officers and other employees. HSBC paid a hefty fine, instead, for laundering uncounted billions of dollars of illegal drug and terrorist money through its U.S. bank in the service of Mexican drug cartels and Middle Eastern terrorists.
Vitter's staff examined allegations made since 2009 by John Cruz, a former HSBC manager armed with 1,000 pages of bank account records and recordings of employees and numerous state and federal law enforcement agents who labeled him as "crazy" rather than seriously look into his claims.
Vitter's Washington staff spoke to Cruz in an hour-long teleconference that WND attended in the senator’s office.
The meeting left Vitter's staff asking, "How can we allow Loretta Lynch to be the nation's top federal law-enforcement officer when the HSBC money-laundering scandal raises questions about a cover-up that may be continuing even today?"

HSBC was allowed to admit only deficiencies in administrating anti-terrorism, money laundering statutes while bank employees down to the branch level who laundered billions of dollars in Mexican drug cartel and Middle Eastern terrorist money were let off the hook, with many remaining as employees of the bank even today. ..
The investigation found HSBC had violated numerous anti-money laundering statutes, processing billions of dollars of transactions for Mexican drug cartels and Middle East terrorist organizations. ..
Cruz began working at HSBC on Jan. 14, 2008, and was terminated for “poor job performance” on Feb. 17, 2010. ..
"The account does not say where the money comes from or where it is going to," Cruz noted. "It's just a transaction. But the money gets transferred out of the account. Where does it go? The bank won’t explain it, but they know exactly where it goes. If it goes from here down to Malaysia, Brazil, Columbia, Hong Kong – the bank knows exactly where it’s going, because the bank owns the branches in those countries."
Money, he said, "comes in daily, thousands of dollars, always in even amounts."
"You look at a statement and it says 'transfer,' but where did it go? There's no account number or tracking number that documents where the transaction went,” he pointed out.
Cruz contends HSBC was running what amounted to a "shell game." ..
Cruz said his 1,000 pages of customer accounts show that to implement the money-laundering scheme, HSBC relied on identity theft. Social Security numbers [Obama M.O.!] were stolen to create the bogus retail and commercial bank accounts through which HSBC employees systematically deposited and withdrew hundreds of millions of dollars on a daily basis, apparently without the knowledge of the identity-theft victims.
"When an individual finds out they got a loan they never knew about, 5 percent of that loan went to the accounting firm that made up the phony tax returns and the other 95 percent of that loan went to the manager," he charged.
"One manager was involved in the transaction, another manager was involved in notarizing the transaction, and senior management was involved where they signed off permission to give the loans even when the loans get rejected by underwriting."
'Criminal enterprise' Cruz told WND he recorded hundreds of hours of meetings he conducted with HSBC management and bank security personnel, during which, he charged, various bank managers were engaging in criminal acts.
"I have hours of hours of recordings, ranging from bank tellers, to business representatives, to branch managers, to executives," he said. "The whole system is designed to be a culture of fraud to make it look like it's a legal system. But it's not."
Cruz explained that even when he let bank managers know he was taping the conversation, the managers were not interested in what he was saying.
"HSBC is a criminal organization," he said. "It is a culture of crime.""
HSBC accounts also played a role in the notorious BAE corruption cases involving arms deals.
Turki bin Nasser, a member of the ruling Saudi family, and his "business manager", the Lebanese politician Mohammad Safadi, had more than $60m of assets in HSBC accounts. Prince Turki, as head of the Saudi air force, was named in 2004 as the biggest secret beneficiary of a $92m BAE slush fund.
The arms giant oiled the wheels of the vast al-Yamamah arms deal with gifts, cars, holidays and cash. The UK’s Serious Fraud Office attempted in 2006 to access the Swiss accounts held by Safadi and others, but that led to a scandal when the then prime minister, Tony Blair, ordered the criminal investigation closed down.
In another case, BAE secretly passed $10m via HSBC to a local middleman, Shailesh Vithlani, to obtain a radar contract. “It stank and was always obvious that this useless project was corrupt," protested Claire Short, the UK's development secretary at the time.
BAE moved money into Vithlani's Panama entity, Envers Trading Corporation. As the cash flowed in, an HSBC manager met Vithlani in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and advised him how best to invest it. BAE was subsequently convicted of accounting offences in relation to the Vithlani transactions, and paid a £30m ($46m) penalty. In a third case, Fana Hlongwane – close to South Africa’s ANC government – was named in 2008 by the Serious Fraud Office as a confidential BAE agent. The SFO said in published statements sent to South African prosecutors that Hlongwane received BAE money through disguised offshore intermediaries to promote arms deals. The South African government decided not to pursue the case.
HSBC is now revealed to have operated Swiss accounts for Hlongwane as an agent for three other US multinational companies. They contained more than $10m in 2006. In 2014, Hlongwane provided an affidavit to an inquiry into the contracts, denying "any evidence implicating myself and/or my companies in any corruption or wrongdoing"."

"HSBC Got Away With Buying Cocaine Plane
While the Justice Department was busy prosecuting American HSBC customers for tax evasion, it has taken no action against the bank for nearly five years.
The U.S. Justice Department is shocked, simply shocked by recent press reports that the megabank HSBC aided Americans in evading taxes. ..
This while the DOJ was jailing non-bankers by the dozen for laundering drug money, including cash from the Sinaloa cartel, which had been a prime HSBC co-conspirator.
Two men at a car dealership who took cartel cash for automobiles got serious prison time.
HSBC got a pass on helping the Sinaloa bunch acquire an airplane that was used to smuggle drugs by the ton…
More than $1 billion in cash was moved by HSBC from the cartel's Mexican hometown of Culiacán to New York between 2006 and 2008.
Sethi opened such an account in India in 2001. He received a call the following year from someone identified in the complaint as U.S. Banker A, a senior vice president at the New York office of the International Bank.
U.S. Banker A allegedly set up a meeting between Sethi and someone identified as U.K. Banker A, a London-based "high-ranking executive of the International Bank” who headed a division “focused on developing and serving clients worldwide with ties to countries in south Asia."
Not long afterward, Sethi met with U.K. Banker A in the International Bank’s New York offices and discussed opening another undeclared account, this one in Switzerland.
"U.K. Banker A told Sethi that the undeclared account would allow Sethi's assets to grow tax-free and that the bank secrecy laws in Switzerland would allow Sethi to conceal the existence of the account," the complaint says.
Sethi proceeded to stash $3.4 million in an HSBC account in Switzerland. Neither he nor the bank could have foreseen that an HSBC computer analyst turned whistleblower in Switzerland would hack into the bank’s computers in 2008.
This self-styled "Edward Snowden of bankers" subsequently furnished French authorities with the details of thousands of secret accounts.
In 2010, then French Finance Minister Christine Lagarde passed the pertinent information on to the United States and other countries. The Americans on the "Lagarde list" apparently included Sethi and Silva.
All this was known to the U.S. Justice Department as it completed an unrelated money-laundering investigation targeting HSBC. The probe resulted in a 13-page “criminal information” that actually named HSBC, charging it with dodging sanctions against such countries as Iran and North Korea, as well as laundering at least $881 million in drug proceeds.
Much of the narcotics money originated with the Sinaloa cartel, and the total may be much higher. More than $1 billion in cash was moved by HSBC from the cartel's Mexican hometown of Culiacán to New York between 2006 and 2008.
But while the complaint named the bank, it made no reference at all to particular bankers.
And before the charges were even filed the feds worked out a deferred prosecution agreement with HSBC.
The bank got off with paying a $1.26 billon fine and agreeing to anti-money laundering precautions overseen by a federal monitor.
Among the smaller narco money transfers the bank facilitated was from a pair of HSBC accounts maintained in 2007 by Sinaloa front companies in the Cayman Islands. The money went to an Oklahoma aircraft company for the purchase of a Super King 200 plane that was later impounded by Mexican cops while being used fly in two tons of cocaine from Venezuela. ..
The ordained Protestant priest who headed HSBC from 2006 to 2010, Stephen Green, was never charged despite the mountains of drug money. He proceeded on as Lord Green to become Britain’s trade minister and has written a book called Good Value: Reflections on Money, Morality and an Uncertain World.
"The truth is that the value of our business is dependent on the values with which we do our business,” he actually opined. "Values go beyond ‘what you can get away with.'"
The criminal information against HSBC was signed by the U.S. attorney for the Eastern District, Loretta Lynch, who is now the nominee to become the next attorney general.
But the deferred prosecution agreement was marshaled by then-Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer in Washington. Breuer subsequently acknowledged that in his view, HSBC was essentially too big to jail.
"Had the U.S. authorities decided to press criminal charges, HSBC would almost certainly have lost its banking license in the U.S., the future of the institution would have been under threat, and the entire banking system would have been destabilized," Breuer told a press conference.
His boss and the person ultimately behind the settlement, Attorney General Eric Holder, said much the same to a Senate panel three months later. He presented too big to jail as a corollary of too big to fail.
"I am concerned that the size of some of these institutions becomes so large that it does become difficult for us to prosecute them when we are hit with indications that if you do prosecute, if you do bring a criminal charge, it will have a negative impact on the national economy, perhaps even the world economy," Holder said. The continuing outrage about the HSBC deal must have caused Holder to fret that if he was once known as a champion of civil rights, he might go down in history as an abettor of criminal wrongs by big banks.
He made a pronouncement in a DOJ video.
"There's no such thing as 'too big to jail,'" Holder declared.
As Holder prepares to depart, DOJ is pressuring four megabanks—but not HSBC—to plead guilty to felony charges of manipulating foreign currency rates. There is talk of actual people being indicted, but only relatively low-level traders. Holder will almost certainly leave with a perfect record of not having busted a single senior banker.
That is not a record that Loretta Lynch would likely hope to match as she awaits her all but assured confirmation.
Lynch has already indicated the deferred prosecution agreement on the money laundering does not preclude HSBC from being prosecuted for other crimes, tax evasion among them.
"I want to reiterate, particularly in the context of recent media reports regarding the release of HSBC files pertaining to its tax clients, that the Deferred Prosecution Agreement reached with HSBC addresses only the charges filed in the criminal information, which are limited to violations of the Bank Secrecy Act for failures to maintain an adequate anti-money laundering program and for sanctions violations," Lynch said in a letter submitted Monday in response to a series of written questions from the Senate Judiciary Committee.
She went on, “The DPA explicitly does not provide any protections against prosecution for conduct beyond what was described."
She added, "Furthermore, I should note the DPA explicitly mentions that the agreement does not bind the Department’s Tax Division, nor the Fraud Section of the Criminal Division."
Lynch seemed unaware that only the news reports about the DOJ tax files are new and that the DOJ has had the details since 2010. Equally not in the know was Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), who had been very vocal in her disapproval when HSBC got off with only a fine for the massive money laundering.
On Tuesday, Warren spoke with renewed outrage in a statement to The Guardian, one of the news organizations at the forefront in reporting the tax-evasion charges.
"The new allegations that HSBC colluded to help wealthy people and rich corporations hide money and avoid taxes are very serious, and, if true, the Department of Justice should reconsider the earlier deferred prosecution agreement it entered into with HSBC and prosecute the new violations to the full extent of the law,” Warren told the newspaper.
Wait until she and everyone else find out that the DOJ has already prosecuted Dr. Silva and the New Jersey businessman Sethi for tax evasion without moving on HSBC.”
