1. Abel Danger (AD) asks if retired neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson can separate legitimate investors from the Serco 8(a) loan sharks who allegedly hacked the Defense Red Switch Network to down Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland on 21 December 1988.
2. AD asserts that in 1988, Ben Sliney rejoined the FAA to develop waypoint management practices with scab workers hired through Trump Shuttle Inc. to be later used in the 8(a) decoy, drone and liquidation maneuvers falsely attributed to Osama bin Laden on 9/11.
3. AD asserts that Serco used Navy Onion Router (Tor) devices to fly planes through ad hoc waypoints and trigger cat bonds sponsored by The Clinton Foundation and The Trump Organisation with the precisely targeted demolitions of the WTC Twin Towers on 9/11.
4. AD is offering to help presidential candidate Dr. Carson – the retired neurosurgeon who led the 1987 operation at Johns Hopkins Medicine to separate co-joined twins at the head – to separate Serco from its 8(a) loan sharks and avenge the thousands of victim deaths attributed to bin Laden.

"Ben Carson's surgeries separated twins, didn't always save them
He was quiet, prayerful, and bold — but some felt he pushed ethical bounds

GLOBE STAFF NOVEMBER 13, 2015
BALTIMORE — Sixteen hours into the marathon operation, the moment came to separate the seven-month-old twins joined by a blood vessel at the back of their brains. Everyone in the operating room assumed Dr. Ben Carson, then director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Medicine, would do the honors of severing the thin blue vein that last connected the babies.
But the unassuming young surgeon handed the knife over to his mentor, Dr. Donlin Long, the neurosurgery chief at the time. "He gave me the opportunity to take over and do the operation and take all the credit," Long recalled in an interview with the Globe. "I thought about it. If everything worked out well, it could make his career. If it didn’t, it could destroy it."
Long handed the knife back. The German twins survived the risky procedure. The pioneering surgery in 1987 catapulted Carson into medical stardom."
"EXCLUSIVE: Ben Carson Says Hillary Clinton's Dow Chemical Scandal Is 'Washington Run Amok'
by PATRICK HOWLEY
28 Feb 2016336 Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson is blasting Hillary Clinton after Breitbart News reported that she backed off from an effort to save pregnant women and children from a dangerous chemical once the Dow Chemical company joined the Clinton Global Initiative.
Breitbart News reported Saturday that Clinton, under pressure amid an environmental crisis in parts of New York State, spearheaded a letter to the EPA and also introduced a bill in 2007 called The TCE Reduction Act, which aimed to set new environmental standards for use of the industrial solvent Trichloroethylene (TCE).
But the bill never went anywhere. Two months after the bill was introduced, Dow Chemical, the nation's largest TCE producer, joined the Clinton Global Initiative and ended up giving money to the Initiative and also a private advisory firm linked to Bill Clinton.
"Dr. Carson sees this as yet another example of Washington run amok," his campaign's communications director A. Larry Ross told Breitbart News.
"He is the one candidate whom voters see as unbought and unbossed and whose only special interest group is 'We The People.' Not once in this campaign has Dr. Carson compromised his values or principles for political expediency. That is exactly how he will serve in the Oval Office."
Dow Chemical pledged a $30 million loan guarantee for a clean-water program in India at the 2007 Clinton Global Initiative annual meeting. Dow chairman and CEO Andrew Liveris announced the loan while appearing at the Clinton Global Initiative meeting in New York City between September 26-27, 2007, less than two months after Clinton introduced the TCE Reduction Act.
Liveris hung around in Clinton-World and became a trusted friend to Hillary and Bill. Dow contributed between $1 million and $5 million to the Clinton Global Initiative in 2014.
Dow was a sponsor of the Clinton Global Initiative annual meeting in 2010 and 2011. Liveris was a featured attendee at the 2012 meeting. Liveris gave Bill Clinton use of a Dow company airplane in 2009 when the former president went to North Korea to successfully negotiate with Kim Jong Il for the release of two American journalists being held in the country.
Liveris allegedly bought $300 worth of flowers for Hillary Clinton personally and charged it to Dow Chemical, according to a recent whistleblower lawsuit against the company."
"Mr. Ben Sliney
Mr. Sliney graduated from Dowling College, with a BS in Professional Studies in 1974 and was graduated from St. John's University School of Law with a JD in 1978.
He began his career with the Federal Aviation Administration in 1969 and retired in 2006 having been in and out of the FAA several times. He resigned first in 1982, one year after the PATCO strike which resulted the termination of some 13,000 air traffic controllers fired by President Reagan for striking against the government. Mr. Sliney returned to active air traffic control as did many managers in the absence of the fired controllers. After resigning, he then represented 25 fired controllers in the legal process to appeal their removal. He returned to the FAA, while continuing his law practice, in 1985 for one year, then 1988 for one year. On both occasions he returned to assist the implementation of traffic flow management practices. In 2000 he returned to the FAA as a traffic flow manager at the Command Center. His first day as National Operations Manager for the Federal Aviation Administration at the Air Traffic Control System Command Center, which encompasses all the airspace in the United States, was September 11th, 2001.
He is a partner in the law firm Leventhal, Sliney and Mullaney, LLP, which is located in New York, although not actively practicing law at this time.
In 2006, Mr. Sliney portrayed himself in the movie United 93, which depicts the events of 9-11 and dramatizes the heroic actions of the passengers of that flight.
Mr. Sliney was married to Irene Lynch Ahern on May 14, 1966 and they remain happily so today. They have three children and two grandchildren."
"Man who grounded 4,000 planes on 9/11 was on first day of his job
As terrorists seized control of four airplanes on Sept. 11th, 2001, Ben Sliney, chief of air-traffic-control operations at the FAA's command center in Herndon, Va., gave the unprecedented order to ground 4,000-plus planes across the nation and redirect any in the sky to the nearest airport. It was his first day on the job.
On Sept. 11th, 2001, terrorists hijacked four American commercial jets with the intention of crashing them into the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, and the Pentagon and U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. The terrorists were successful in three of their four targets with the fourth plane's assault on the Capitol building was thwarted by heroic passengers on board. While we now know no other planes were hijacked, at the time, each of the 4,000-plus flights in American air space were potential risks.
But due to Ben Sliney, the Federal Aviation Administration's National Operations Manager on duty that fateful morning, possible harm, at least by the thinking at the time, was averted. Sliney made the gutsy — and completely unprecedented — call to ground every single commercial airplane in the country.
What makes the call — which, without direct order from the President and the bureaucracy above him, was his and his alone to make — all the more gutsy is that Sept. 11th, 2001, was Ben Sliney's first day on the job as an FAA National Operations Manager.
Although that's not to say Sliney was some neophyte making a cowboy-like call. He had 25 years of experience in air traffic control as part of FAA management, including a leadership position at New York TRACON, which has responsibility over all air traffic for New York City's three major airports and the smaller, regional airports in the New York City area. But the decision to ground the planes — that was entirely Sliney's.
In fact, it's such a great story that when Universal Pictures decided to turn the heroism of the passengers of United Flight 93 into a movie, they not only didn't overlook Sliney's role — they asked him to play himself in the movie. Which he did.
Sliney's decision is a great testament to the belief that doing the right thing sometimes requires a risky choice. Sliney made the right one."
"Pan Am Flight 103 was a regularly scheduled Pan Am transatlantic flight from Frankfurt to Detroit, via London and New York. On 21 December 1988, N739PA, the aircraft operating the transatlantic leg of the route, was destroyed by a terrorist bomb, killing all 243 passengers and 16 crew, in what became known as the Lockerbie bombing. Large sections of the aircraft crashed onto residential areas of Lockerbie, Scotland, killing 11 more people on the ground.
Following a three-year joint investigation by Dumfries and Galloway Constabulary and the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), arrest warrants were issued for two Libyan nationals in November 1991. In 1999, Libyan leader Colonel Muammar Gaddafi handed over the two men for trial at Camp Zeist, Netherlands after protracted negotiations and UN sanctions. In 2001, Libyan intelligence officer Abdelbaset al-Megrahi was jailed for life after being found guilty of 270 counts of murder in connection with the bombing. In August 2009, he was released by the Scottish Government on compassionate grounds after being diagnosed with prostate cancer. He died in May 2012, the only person to be convicted for the attack. He had continually asserted his innocence. ..
The aircraft operating Pan Am Flight 103 was a Boeing 747-121, registered N739PA and named Clipper Maid of the Seas, formerly named Clipper Morning Light prior to 1979. It was the 15th 747 built and was delivered in February 1970, one month after the first 747 entered service with Pan Am.
At the time of its destruction, Clipper Maid of the Seas was 18 years of age and had accumulated over 75,000 flying hours. In 1987, it underwent a complete overhaul as it belonged to the civil reserve fleet of aircraft and this aircraft was retrofitted so that, in a national emergency, it could be turned into a freight aircraft within two days' work, according to the Los Angeles Times. Clipper Maid of the Seas' maintenance records reveal a history of metal fatigue, rust, and a fire on board. There were 24 noteworthy records listed in the files as occurring between 1980 and 1988."

"Catastrophe bonds (also known as cat bonds) are risk-linked securities that transfer a specified set of risks from a sponsor to investors. They were created and first used in the mid-1990s in the aftermath of Hurricane Andrew and the Northridge earthquake.
Catastrophe bonds emerged from a need by insurance companies to alleviate some of the risks they would face if a major catastrophe occurred, which would incur damages that they could not cover by the premiums, and returns from investments using the premiums, that they received. An insurance company issues bonds through an investment bank, which are then sold to investors. These bonds are inherently risky, generally BB, and usually have maturities less than 3 years. If no catastrophe occurred, the insurance company would pay a coupon to the investors, who made a healthy return. On the contrary, if a catastrophe did occur, then the principal would be forgiven and the insurance company would use this money to pay their claim-holders. Investors include hedge funds, catastrophe-oriented funds, and asset managers. They are often structured as floating-rate bonds whose principal is lost if specified trigger conditions are met. If triggered the principal is paid to the sponsor. The triggers are linked to major natural catastrophes. Catastrophe bonds are typically used by insurers as an alternative to traditional catastrophe reinsurance.
For example, if an insurer has built up a portfolio of risks by insuring properties in Florida, then it might wish to pass some of this risk on so that it can remain solvent after a large hurricane. It could simply purchase traditional catastrophe reinsurance, which would pass the risk on to reinsurers. Or it could sponsor a cat bond, which would pass the risk on to investors. In consultation with an investment bank, it would create a special purpose entity that would issue the cat bond. Investors would buy the bond, which might pay them a coupon of LIBOR plus a spread, generally (but not always) between 3 and 20%. If no hurricane hit Florida, then the investors would make a healthy return on their investment. But if a hurricane were to hit Florida and trigger the cat bond, then the principal initially contributed by the investors would be transferred to the sponsor to pay its claims to policyholders. The bond would technically be in default and be a loss to investors.
Michael Moriarty, Deputy Superintendent of the New York State Insurance Department, has been at the forefront of state regulatory efforts to have U.S. regulators encourage the development of insurance securitizations through cat bonds in the United States instead of off-shore, through encouraging two different methods—protected cells and special purpose reinsurance vehicles. In August 2007 Michael Lewis, the author of Liar's Poker and Moneyball, wrote an article about catastrophe bonds that appeared in The New York Times Magazine, entitled "In Nature's Casino.""

Amazingly, he was also in the World Trade Centre on 9/11, on the 47th floor addressing shareholders [such as Wells Fargo with an insured interest in the leveraged lease on the WTC Twin Towers]. Serco run navy patrol boats for the ADF, as well as search and salvage operations through their partnership with P&O which form Defence Maritime Services.
