1. Abel Danger (AD) claims that Serco shareholders are injecting Zulu timing signals into the Defense Red Switch Network to support the staging, synchronization and execution of ambushes intended to kill or intimidate leaders of the U.S. National Command Authority.

2. AD claims that in 1994 Base One Technologies – a Serco protégée and woman-owned 8(a) company – equipped the Clinton State Department and DOJ Pride agents with private servers to ambush military missions with the apparent authority of the national command.

3. AD claims that Serco exploited Hillary Clinton's "extremely careless" handling of classified command authority information on the private server to ambush the Extortion 17 helicopter mission in Afghanistan on 6 August 2011 and is jointly responsible with her for the wrongful deaths of all 38 people on board as well as a U.S. military dog named Bart.

4. United States Marine Field McConnell asks James Comey – a former director of Serco's banker HSBC and the current FBI director – to hand over evidence of Clinton's carelessness so the families of those killed in Extortion 17 can develop a class-action suit against Clinton's sponsors and Serco's shareholders for the wrongful death of 38 men and a dog on 6 August 2011.

On 6 August 2011, a U.S. Boeing CH-47 Chinook military helicopter was shot down while taking part in a night raid on a village in Wardak province, west of Kabul, Afghanistan, killing all 38 people on board—30 American special operations personnel, seven Afghan commandos, and one Afghan interpreter—as well as a U.S. military dog (named Bart).

"Hillary Clinton's Extreme Carelessness Sure Seems Like a Federal Felony 
Why did the FBI recommend against prosecuting her for gross negligence in handling classified material?
Jacob Sullum|Jul. 6, 2016 6:30 am 
Explaining why he decided not to recommend criminal charges against Hillary Clinton in connection with her use of an unsecured private email server as secretary of state, FBI Director James Comey contrasts her "extremely careless" handling of "very sensitive, highly classified information" with the "clearly intentional and willful mishandling of classified information" that has prompted federal prosecution in other cases. But that distinction does not really explain why Comey decided "no reasonable prosecutor" would bring a case against Clinton, since one of the statutes guiding the FBI's investigation, 18 USC 793, makes it a felony to "mishandle classified information either intentionally or in a grossly negligent way" (emphasis added), as Comey himself notes at the beginning of yesterday's statement. Maybe Comey perceives a difference between extreme carelessness and gross negligence, but if so he never bothered to elucidate it." 

"Families suspect SEAL Team 6 crash was inside job on worst day in Afghanistan 
By Rowan Scarborough - The Washington Times - Sunday, October 20, 2013 
Questions haunt the families of Extortion 17, the 2011 helicopter mission in Afghanistan that suffered the most U.S. military deaths in a single day in the war on terrorism.

The investigative file made available to The Washington Times shows that the helicopter's landing zone was not properly vetted for threats nor protected by gunships, while commanders criticized the mission as too rushed and the conventional Chinook chopper as ill-suited for a dangerous troop infiltration.

Every day, Charlie Strange, the father of one of the 30 Americans who died Aug. 6, 2011, in the flash of a rocket-propelled grenade, asks himself whether his son, Michael, was set up by someone inside the Afghan government wanting revenge on Osama bin Laden's killers — SEAL Team 6.

"Somebody was leaking to the Taliban," said Mr. Strange, whose son intercepted communications as a Navy cryptologist. "They knew. Somebody tipped them off. There were guys in a tower. Guys on the bush line. They were sitting there, waiting. And they sent our guys right into the middle."

Doug Hamburger's son, Patrick, an Army staff sergeant, also perished when the CH-47D Chinook descended to a spot less than 150 yards from where armed Taliban fighters watched from a turret.

He asks why the command sent his son into Tangi Valley toward a "hot landing zone" in a cargo airship instead of a special operations helicopter. The souped-up choppers — the MH-47 and the MH-60 Black Hawk, which SEAL Team 6 rode the stealth version of to kill bin Laden — are flown by Night Stalker pilots skilled in fast, ground-hugging maneuvers to avoid detection.

"When you want to fly them into a valley, when you've got hillsides on both sides of it with houses built into sides of the valley, that is an extremely dangerous mission," Mr. Hamburger said. "The MH, the new model, they've got radar that will pick up an incoming missile or incoming RPG. They’re faster. They're quicker on attack. They're more agile. So there was every reason in the world to use the MH that night."

Sith Douangdara, whose 26-year-old son, John, was a Navy expeditionary specialist who handled warrior dog Bart, said he has lots of unanswered questions.

"I want to know why so many U.S. servicemen, especially SEALs, were assembled on one aircraft," he said. "I want to know why the black box of the helicopter has not been found. I want to know many things.”

Not all families believe the fact-finding investigation, conducted by Army Brig. Gen. Jeffrey Colt covered all issues. Gen. Colt, who has since been promoted to major general, told commanders that his job was not to find fault and his report did not criticize any person or decision.

"I want people held accountable," said Mr. Strange, a former union construction worker who deals blackjack in a Philadelphia casino. A spokesman for U.S. Central Command, which overseas the war and conducted the probe, declined to answer the families’ questions and referred a reporter to Gen. Colt's report.

Congress gets involved

More than two years later, more answers may be forthcoming.

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, led by Rep. Darrell E. Issa, California Republican, is making inquiries after meeting with some families.

Larry Klayman, who runs the nonprofit watchdog group Freedom Watch, has filed suit in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia against the Pentagon, as well as the Air Force, Army and Navy. He wants a judge to order the military to turn over an array of documents under the U.S. Freedom of Information Act. He said the Defense Department stonewalled his written requests, so Freedom Watch went to court last month and succeeded in forcing the government to turn over records.

For the first time, Mr. Klayman allowed The Washington Times to view the military's investigative files turned over to family members two years ago.

“The families of our fallen heroes, who I am proud to represent, need closure to this tragedy," Mr. Klayman said. "There are many unanswered questions and the military's explanations of the causes of the crash do not add up."

He said families also want changes to the military's restrictive rules of engagement that made it more difficult for U.S. helicopter pilots to fire back at the Taliban fighters they believed brought down the Chinook.

“The families also want our military's rules of engagement to be changed, as a testament to and in honor of their dead sons," Mr. Klayman said. “When our nation enters into battle, it must be to win the battle, not the 'hearts and minds' of the Islamic jihadist enemy and the Muslim civilian population it uses as human shields."

He also wants to know the identities of Afghan soldiers onboard, and why the aircraft's black box, washed away in a fierce rainstorm, was never found — even though it has a homing device.

"We want to make sure our fallen heroes are respected and that answers are provided," he said. About an possible insider betrayal, he says: "We're not saying that happened, but it needs to be explored because increasingly Americans are being killed at the hands of Afghans."

Even some military personnel involved that night questioned the operations afterward.

The navigator aboard the AC-130 gunship that loitered for three hours over Tangi Valley expressed in 2011 what the families are thinking today.

"One of the other things that we did talk about — kind of what you're hitting on, sir, is about the fact that, you know, for three hours we had been burning holes in the sky," the officer told Gen. Colt's team. "You've got [Apaches] flying around, so there's a lot of noise going on and, basically, this entire valley knows that there's something happening in this area. So, to do an infil on the X or Y, you know, having that element of surprise in the beginning of an operation is good, but by the time we've been there for three hours, and the party's up, bringing in another aircraft like that, you know, may not be the most tactically sound decision."

The mission

After Gen. Colt's report became public in September 2011, the military arranged for him to brief next of kin Oct. 12 in Little Creek, Va., home to Naval Special Warfare Development Group, popularly called SEAL Team 6. The crash took the lives of 17 SEALs and five special warfare development group operators, making it the worst one-day loss in the history of U.S. naval special operations.

The chopper's manifest included five Army soldiers, three Air Force airmen, seven Afghan soldiers and one Afghan interpreter. All 38 died.

Twenty-two of them, such as Petty Officer Strange, were thrown from the aircraft. The rest died inside the fireball.

The military morgue at Dover Air Force Base in Delaware reported that all succumbed within seconds. Gen. Colt said they were “most likely rapid fatalities." President Obama went to Dover to receive the fallen and console the families.

"'Your son changed America,'" Mr. Strange said the president told him. "I grabbed the president by the shoulders and said, 'I don't need to know about my son. I need to know what happened.'"

The nation mourned as 30 funerals were held across the country, many in small-town America.

The public was transfixed by the service in Rockford, Iowa, for Petty Officer 1st Class Jon Tumilson, a SEAL. His beloved Labrador, Hawkeye, stayed loyal to the end, lying at the casket as more than 50 SEALs sat in attendance.

The military probe

Gen. Colt had the right experience to lead the probe: He is a decorated Iraq and Afghanistan veteran and career helicopter pilot, including time in the storied 160th Special Operations Regiment. He is now deputy commander of Fort Bragg, N.C.

For the families on Oct. 12, he went over his main conclusions, then his staff handed out DVDs.

But the questions the next of kin have today did not materialize until they began poring over 1,300 pages of maps, charts, briefings and interview transcripts of task force commanders and planners connected to the incident.

The tragedy unfolded at 10:55 p.m. on Aug. 5, 2011, when 47 Army Rangers set down in two CH-47 Chinooks in high ground overlooking Afghanistan's Tangi Valley. The mission was part of an intensified campaign to kill or capture Taliban leaders, a drive that put tremendous demands on the helicopter fleet and left newer special “ops” models in short supply.

That night, the quarry was Qari Tahir, identified as the top leader in that critical area south of Kabul where the enemy moved in and out of Pakistan.

The Rangers raided a house thought to hold Tahir. The fleeing enemy — the military calls them "squirters" — escaped through a back door. The Rangers' leader then made a pivotal decision: He asked the special operations task force to send an immediate reaction force to help catch the squirters, though whether any of them was Tahir was not known. It turned out he was in another village.

Commanders assembled the reaction force in 50 minutes and loaded them on one conventional CH-47, call sign Extortion 17, for the brief flight piloted by a seasoned National Guardsman and a younger reservist.

At that point, it was a far more risky flight than the insertion of Rangers 3 hours earlier. The Rangers had the benefit of surprise.

Extortion 17 did not. It was flying into a firefight, with the noise of Apache attack helicopters, AC-130 gunships and drones above telling everyone in the valley that a military operation was underway.

It lifted off a forward operating base at 2:22 a.m., held for several minutes at one point, then announced it was one minute out at 2:38. At that moment, Extortion 17 slowed to 58 mph, at no more than 150 feet, approaching a spot framed by trees and mud-brick huts, and "sparkled" by the infrared designator on an AC-130 gunship.

In darkness, the Taliban fired two or three rocket-propelled grenades, a Soviet-designed OG-7 anti-personnel version that is accurate inside 170 yards. The shooter had positioned himself well within the weapon's effective range.

One of the rocket-propelled grenades clipped a rotor blade and sent the Chinook into a violent spin, then fiery crash. Within 30 minutes, bragging about the hit from Taliban fighters started appearing on communications nets.

The command press office in Kabul at first told reporters that Extortion 17 was on a rescue mission. But the Rangers did not need rescuing. They had secured the target compound and were chasing squirters.

"A reactionary force is usually sent in as a rescue, meaning our guys are in trouble and you send them in," Mr. Hamburger said. "You don't send a reaction force to stop a group of the enemy escaping out the back side of the village, especially in a dangerous valley in a dangerous entry like they were doing."

The Colt report supports Mr. Hamburger's position. The special operations command in Afghanistan rarely assembled a reaction force, much less the elite SEAL Team 6, for the chore of chasing fleeing Taliban fighters.

A Colt investigator asked the task force operations officer, "How often do [you] employ the [immediate reaction force] on a target?"

"Rarely sir," he answered. "It is rare to have a separate IRF element that is planned like this one."

Likewise, an officer in the combat aviation brigade that provided Extortion 17 said he knew of no previous mission to send a reaction force to catch squirters.

"It has not happened sir," he told Gen. Colt.

This officer said Extortion 17 already had taken off before he had a chance to tell the brigade's top officer. There was little intelligence information about the landing area, except that it was 2.5 miles from the compound raided by the Rangers.

"I think he [the commander] called directly to try to get more information," the officer told Gen. Colt.

The officer then acknowledged that the brigade never fully assessed the possible dangers that could await Extortion 17.

"But the immediacy of it, we didn't delve as much as we needed to into the threat at that location," he said. Betrayal?

Some family members believe the Americans were betrayed by the Afghan government, that someone tipped off theTaliban.

One reason they cite is that the Taliban had begun planting loyalists inside the international security force to kill Americans, a practice known as "green on blue" assassinations.

They say SEAL Team 6 had a target on its back since it became known through various Obama administration leaks to the press that the unit killed bin Laden three months earlier.

Commanders told Gen. Colt's investigation team that the Taliban put 100 fighters into Tangi Valley for the express purpose of bringing down U.S. aircraft. A flight with 17 SEALs would be a coveted target.

Then there is the fact that a group of Taliban fighters, equipped with hand-held radios, shifted positions and gathered near Extortion 17's landing zone — a spot never before used by the Americans.

Two Taliban fighters armed with rocket-propelled grenades just happened to be stationed in a high turret less than 150 yards from Chinook's "hot landing zone," or (HLZ).

One paragraph in the Colt report grabbed the families' attention. In it, crash investigators were interviewing the top leadership of the joint special operations task force that put together the mission. One of them was asked about a manifest.

"Yes, sir," a commander answered. "And I'm sure you know by now the manifest was accurate with the exception of the [redacted] personnel that were on. So the [redacted] personnel, they were incorrect — all seven names were incorrect. And I cannot talk to the back story of why."

The "seven," family members say, refers to the Afghan soldiers. The open Colt report makes no reference about why the manifest was inaccurate. Military censors redacted any reference to the Afghans. Some families believe the task force at the last moment was forced to remove seven Afghans whose names remained on the manifest and replace them with seven others.

Senior Afghans had been aware of the mission because each operation must be approved by a joint operational coordination group made up of Americans and Afghan national security forces.

A Central Command spokesman declined to discuss the issue.

"My thought is they were being set up by the Afghanistan military," Mr. Hamburger said. "I really have a feeling that is why the Afghans were switched at the last minute. That is why they were not on the manifest. I think that our military discovered that and did not want to disclose that truth to the families. I don’t know that for sure, but you just add everything up that wasn’t right with the mission that night, it really worries you."

Gen. Colt wrote that he believes the Taliban stood ready to fire for one simple reason: The 3-hour Ranger operation, with aircraft continually buzzing overhead, alerted every enemy in the area that more helicopters might be on the way.

"The [Apache helicopters'] early arrival at both HLZ [redacted] coupled with earlier kinetic engagements of enemy elements, likely provided early warning to Taliban fighters that additional helicopters may be inboard to the area," he wrote.

The wrong aircraft

Family members also believe the SEALs took off in the wrong aircraft.

The CH-47D, a conventional helicopter flown by a non-special operations pilot and co-pilot, is fine for ferrying cargo and troops to uncontested areas.

But to insert commandos into a "hot" zone, specialized choppers such as the MH-47 and MH-60 flown by special operations pilots should have been used, family members say. Army Special Operations Aviation aircraft fly fast and low, while the CH-47D descends to a landing zone from a significant height, making it an easy target.

A special operations commander told Gen. Colt that, of the CH-47D, his "comfort level is low because they don't fly like ARSOA. They don't plan like ARSOA. They don't land like ARSOA. They will either, you know, kind of do a runway landing. Or if it’s a different crew that trains different areas, they will do the pinnacle landing."

The officer said conventional choppers make commandos less effective.

"It's tough," he told Gen. Colt. "I mean, and I gave them guidance to make it work. And they were making it work. But it limited our effectiveness. It made our options and our tactical flexibility — our agility was clearly limited by our air platform infil — where we could go. How quickly we could get there."

Unlike the MH models, the CH-47D was not equipped with any defensive alert system against rocket-propelled grenades. Gen. Colt's own final report shows that MHs have a better track record, at least in the 45 days before the shoot-down.

On June 6, two CH-47s inserting troops into Tangi Valley aborted the mission after encountering fire from rocket-propelled grenades. Later that night, an ARSOA MH-47G encountered the fire while inserting troops to the same landing zone and reported no damage.

It is notable that the command sent the combat rescue, and ordnance disposal teams, to the crash site in MH-47s, not CHs, and that the 47 Rangers left the Tangi Valley in special operations choppers.

Mr. Hamburger said he was told that no MH models were available when Extortion 17 was tapped for its doomed flight.

The Colt report states that surveillance aircraft, likely a Predator drone, stayed fixed on the squirters and did not shift to 17’s landing spot to look for the enemy.

But Mr. Hamburger said a soldier told him he watched a Predator video feed of the shoot-down at a nearby base. If true, the father wants Central Command to turn over the video.

Mr. Hamburger cites as another motive for his push to obtain more information the rules of engagement for U.S. troops. He wants them changed.

Gunship crews cannot fire on fleeing Afghans before confirming they are carrying weapons, even though they obviously are Taliban fighters.

Such rules inhibited the Apaches and the C-130 gunship that night. The special operations commander in Kabul wanted to authorize a strike on the squirters, "but was unable to determine whether the group was armed," the Colt report says. The commander then ordered the ill-fated SEAL mission to help the Rangers round up every one. More aggressive rules of engagement might have removed any need for the mission.

Moments after the shoot-down, an Apache pilot pinpointed the source of the rocket-propelled grenade, but could not fire.

"Due to [rules of engagement] and tactical directives, I couldn't fire at the building where I thought the [shooter] was, so I aimed directly to the west of the building,” the pilot told Gen. Colt.

Mr. Hamburger also said the mission did not follow protocol. The flight included no "stacked" escort of Apaches and a C-130 gunship that would put more eyes on the landing zone to look for shooters. The command relied on the gunships that had been sent with the Ranger team, but they had two tasks and paid more attention to the first — watching the squirters.

There appears to be a discrepancy between Gen. Colt's public 27-page report and what Apache pilots told him during his probe. The AH-64 Apaches serve as the Chinooks' bodyguards during a typical troop insertion, escorting them to the landing zone and then targeting enemy on the ground.

But Extortion 17 had no Apache escorts.

Gen. Colt's report said that special operations commander at headquarters did not order the Rangers’ two Apaches, equipped with night-vision goggles and night-gun sights, to move to Extortion 17's landing zone. A Ranger commander on the ground took it on himself to issue that order, he wrote.

But the interview transcripts show a more complete story, one that troubles the families who believe Gen. Colt left the wrong impression. During his investigation, Gen. Colt himself told the special operations commander: "I'm just going to give you the feedback. The [Apache] guys, they really thought that their primary task was continuing to monitor these guys. That's where their focus was. And as far as the amount of attention that they paid to the [hot landing zone] and the [infiltration] route, it was a secondary task to them."

The pilot of one of two Apaches, called Gun 1 and Gun 2, assigned to protect the Rangers told Gen. Colt they never broke off to inspect the landing zone for threats as Extortion 17 got closer — until it was just three minutes out.

"Honestly, sir, I don't think anybody had really looked at the LZ," said the pilot of Gun 1. "I mean, at any time if we would have found these squirters, or they would have found weapons, we were — the way I was understanding it, we were going to be clear to engage due to the fact that they had weapons, but we had to [positively identify] them first.

"So we hadn’t started looking at the LZ yet, just due to there was so much more of a threat to the east with the squirters," the pilot said. "I would say that on the three-minute call is when Gun 2 started. looking at the LZ, giving an LZ brief op. I would say that was the first time that we really had eyes on the LZ."

Planning for an immediate reaction force is supposed to be in conjunction with the main mission. It was not. Planning began at shortly after 1 a.m. and lasted less than an hour.

The AC-130 commander said no one properly coordinated who would watch the squirters on the valley's east side and who would move west to watch Extortion 17's back.

"That coordination probably could have gone better, could have been better and, I think, I'm not sure, it just appeared to us the whole plan for getting into this area was rushed, I guess," he said. "I don't know if that's the case, but that's kind of one thing that I thought might have been done a little bit better."

The gunship's sensor operator said, "It just didn't feel comfortable to us to bring another helo in, especially not having a ground team down there securing an LZ for them."

Assessment

In the families' eyes, the mission was snakebit from the start: using sing the wrong aircraft; flying into an uninspected and unwatched landing zone infested with Taliban fighters assembling a plan and a reaction team in minutes for an action that should have been conducted hours earlier.

The Times asked a special operations officer for his opinion. He is on active duty and cannot speak on the record.

"In this case, the CH-47 was used in a completely inappropriate manner given its design and the result was the deaths of everyone aboard," the officer said.

"Tier 1 personnel must be employed with careful planning," he added. “The cost and time to train them means that using them in such a haphazard manner as a reaction force in this context places critical personnel at too great a risk, especially in this concentration on such a noncritical mission."

SEAL Team 6 and Army Delta Force are considered Tier 1 personnel as the armed forces’ most elite counterterrorism units.

Asked how a Taliban at night could hit the 98-foot-long Chinook, he said, "I never questioned how he could aim. There's is no such thing as 'pitch black' and the CH-47 airframe is a loud, enormous target."

Gen. Colt's legal adviser began one interview session with ground troops by saying, "Obviously, we got a general officer appointed duty investigation by CENTCOM to make sure we have all the i's dotted and the t's crossed and our report is going to be as accurate and complete and unlikely to be second-guessed by a bunch of folks outside the military."

A month after the worst day in the war, the U.S. gained revenge of a sort. The NATO command in Kabul announced that it had killed Tahir with a precise airstrike as he stood outside with a fellow terrorist."

"Originally appeared at Chuck Baldwin LIVE A missionary friend of mine in Eastern Europe recently gave me a heads up regarding an excellent article written by Sebastian Swift entitled "5 Confirmed False Flag Operations And How To Spot Them In The Future."

Swift writes, "The false flag phenomenon is distinctively modern and used as an ideological weapon to control populations with the fear of a manufactured enemy. They are used in ostensibly democratic systems where people believe they have inalienable rights. Such democratic systems--primarily the United States, Israel, and Great Britain--must shock people into sociopolitical and geopolitical consent and, as such, require sophisticated modern propaganda systems and advanced covert operations teams with highly proficient skills."

Here are his telltale signs of a false flag operation:

There is an immediate comprehensive narrative, including a convenient culprit. Law enforcement, government agencies, and the mainstream media immediately proffer a narrative that completely explains the event and encourages citizens to tie their intellectual understanding of the tragedy to the emotions they experience. In his lecture at Contact in the Desert, [author and researcher] Richard Dolan noted that a distinguishing characteristic of a false flag operation is that the official narrative IS NOT questioned by the media. There are often legislative, ideological and sociopolitical power plays waiting in the wings, which the government can immediately implement.

The official narrative has obvious domestic and geopolitical advantages for the governing body. The Bush administration used 9/11 to usher in the War on Terror, which has served as a lynchpin for countless civil liberty infringements by the national security state, including ubiquitous domestic surveillance and indefinite detention.

The narrative behind the attack serves to leverage emotions like fear, as well as patriotism, in order to manufacture consent around a previously controversial issue. For example, many of the recent domestic terror attacks, including the Aurora [and Orlando] shooting[s], have exacerbated and reinforced advocacy of gun control legislation.

Military training drills and police drills occur on the day of and very near the attack itself, causing confusion to obscure eye witness testimony and allowing orchestrators to plant both patsies, disinformation and backup operatives. This is no small point. An incredible percentage of major domestic or international terror attacks have involved simultaneous "training drills.” This list includes, but is not limited to, the infamous NORAD drills of 9/11, the 7/7 London Bombings, the 2011 Norway shooting, the Aurora shooting, Sandy Hook, and the Boston Marathon. Though none of the aforementioned events can be confirmed or denied without a doubt, they bear a striking resemblance to previous false flag attacks and should be looked at with an investigative eye…

Our Founding Fathers believed their government (the British Crown) was deliberately conspiring against them. Thomas Jefferson said as much in our Declaration of Independence:

"Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security."

Read it again: “But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a DESIGN to reduce them under absolute Despotism . . . ." Jefferson and the rest of America's founders believed that there was a “design” (i.e, "plot," "scheme," or “conspiracy,” if you please) to “reduce them under absolute Despotism.” So, if you believe that government conspiracy is only for kooks, you must include America’s Founding Fathers in that group….

Again, I submit if we deliberately "shut our eyes against a painful truth," liberty is not long for this country. And that includes admitting when a tragedy is NOT a conspiracy. But it also means admitting when evidence suggests that it IS."

"UK Cabinet Office – Emergency Planning College – Serco …..Types of Exercise Workshop Exercises 
These are structured discussion events where participants can explore issues in a less pressurised environment. They are an ideal way of developing solutions, procedures and plans rather than the focus being on decision making. Table Top Exercises These involve a realistic scenario and will follow a time line, either in real-time or with time jumps to concentrate on the more important areas. The participants would be expected to be familiar with the plans and procedures that are being used although the exercise tempo and complexity can be adjusted to suit the current state of training and readiness. Simulation and media play can be used to support the exercise. Table-top exercises help develop teamwork and allow participants to gain a better understanding of their roles and that of other agencies and organisations. Command/Control Post Exercises These are designed primarily to exercise the senior leadership and support staff in collective planning and decision making within a strategic grouping. Ideally such exercises would be run from the real command and control locations and using their communications and information systems [Feeling lucky, Punk?].

This could include a mix of locations and varying levels of technical simulation support. The Gold Standard system is flexible to allow the tempo and intensity to be adjusted to ensure maximum training benefit, or to fully test and evaluate the most important aspects of a plan. Such exercises also test information flow, communications, equipment, procedures, decision making and coordination. Live Exercises These can range from testing individual components of a system or organisation through to a full-scale rehearsal. They are particularly useful where there are regulatory requirements or with high-risk situations. They are more complex and costly to organise and deliver but can be integrated with Command Post Exercises as part of a wider exercising package."

"Police drop investigation into Serco prisoner transport contract 
The outsourcing group said there was no evidence of individual or corporate wrongdoing 
By Marion Dakers 
7:42AM GMT 19 Dec 2014 
The City of London Police has closed an investigation into Serco's prisoner transport contract after more than a year of work, enabling the firm to continue with the contract until 2018.

The Ministry of Justice called in the police in August 2013 to examine whether Serco had misleadingly recorded prisoners as being ready for court when they were not, in order to meet the performance criteria of the contract.

However, Serco said on Friday that the probe into the Prisoner Escort and Custody Services (PECS) contract had been closed after the police found no evidence to support bringing charges against the outsourcing firm or its staff.

"The information obtained was also sufficient for the City of London Police to conclude there was no evidence of any corporate-wide conspiracy or an intention to falsify figures to meet the DRACT [designated ready and available for court time] contract requirement by senior Serco management or at the board level of the company," the firm said in a statement.

The Ministry of Justice had said it would end the contract immediately if the firm’s board was found to have done wrong."

"Government still paying G4S and Serco millions for tagging despite ban 
Two firms which faced criminal investigations over alleged overcharging received £13.2m between them after losing contract, analysis shows.

The Ministry of Justice is still paying security firms G4S and Serco millions of pounds every month for supplying electronic tagging equipment, more than a year after both companies were barred from running the contract.

Both companies faced criminal investigations by the Serious Fraud Office over allegations of overcharging that led to them repaying nearly £180m.

The continuing monthly payments to the two companies were uncovered by an analysis of Ministry of Justice (MoJ) data by the Centre for Crime and Justice Studies which shows that G4S was paid a total of £8.7m between March 2014 – when it lost the tagging contract – and February 2015. Serco was paid £4.5m over the same period.

The electronic monitoring tags are used to enforce curfews on more than 100,000 offenders each year. The outsourcing giant Capita took over the contract on an interim basis in April last year. In July 2014, Capita and three other companies were named as the winners of a £265m six-year contract to supply the next generation of satellite tracking tags, which would allow dangerous and repeat offenders to be monitored around the clock.

The MoJ agreed that Capita should continue to use the older G4S/Serco tagging equipment until the first satellite tracking tags were due to come into use by the end of last year.

But there have been continued delays in the development of the satellite tracking tags and the contracts with G4S and Serco to use their equipment have been extended. The Guardian understands that they were given a 15-month extension earlier this year with a further extension possible when that expires in 2016.

Richard Garside of the Centre for Crime and Justice Studies said: "The ministry is continuing to pay G4S and Serco for the supply of electronic tagging equipment months after the contracts should have been terminated, because the timetable for the next generation of satellite tagging technology has slipped and slipped.

"The ministry needs to clarify, as soon as possible, when payments to G4S and Serco will end."

Garside claimed that the MoJ had originally published inaccurate data showing that the two companies had been paid a total of £32m but had since clarified the figure as being £13.2m.

An MoJ spokeswoman said: "G4S and Serco no longer deliver electronic monitoring services. We have always been clear Capita would continue to use their systems until new tags were developed, which gave taxpayers value for money and put public safety first."

She said that the Centre for Crime and Justice Studies' original interpretation of the MoJ data had been incorrect as the bulk of the reported £32m that had been spent had been for the period in 2013 and 2014 when G4S and Serco still held the tagging contract.

The former justice secretary, Chris Grayling, announced in July last year that a small Redditch company, Steatite, would supply the new generation of satellite GPS tracking tags. They in turn sub-contracted to a Taiwanese company, Sanav. But it is understood that the first Steatite tags were rushed into use last year in an attempt to meet Grayling's end-of-year deadline, but had to be withdrawn amid a dispute over intellectual property rights and other issues. The tags may not be ready until 2016 or later.

G4S runs the largest current satellite tracking programme in the world in France where it tracks the daily movements of 12,000 offenders. A G4S spokesman said: "Our GPS-enabled electronic monitoring technology is a world-leader – designed, developed and exported from our base in Leicester to 17 countries around the world – and we will continue to support the ministry of justice in England and Wales in any way we can."

This article was amended on 25 June 2015 to make it clear that Steatite, not Capita, was responsible for the delays in the development of the satellite tags." 

"[White's Club member] Rupert Christopher Soames OBE (born 18 May 1959) is a British businessman, CEO of the outsourcing company Serco.[1] Soames was born in Croydon, Surrey, to Lord and Lady Soames. He is a grandson of Sir Winston Churchill, a nephew of the former Defence Secretary Duncan Sandys and Diana Churchill; the journalist Randolph Churchill and the actress and dancer Sarah Churchill and a great-nephew of the founders of the Scout movement, Robert Baden-Powell and Olave Baden-Powell. His brother is the Conservative MP Sir Nicholas Soames.

Education[edit]

Soames was educated at St. Aubyns Preparatory School in Rottingdean, East Sussex and Eton College,[2] and then Worcester College at the University of Oxford,[3] during which time he worked as a DJ at the London nightclub Annabel's, as well as being elected to the Presidency of the Oxford Union.[3]

Career[edit]

Upon graduation, he was offered a position at General Electric Company (GEC) by the managing director Arnold Weinstock. He remained at GEC for 15 years, working in the company's avionics and computing divisions, and became managing director of Avery Berkel, running the company's UK, India, Asia and Africa operations.[4]

After leaving GEC in 1997, Soames joined the software company Misys as chief executive of its Midas-Kapiti division. He was promoted to chief executive of the Banking and Securities Division in June 2000.[5]

Soames left Misys after a disagreement with Misys founder Kevin Lomax on the company's direction, and was appointed chief executive of power hire group Aggreko in June 2003,[6] replacing Philip Harrower who died when his car collided with a train in the United States.[7]

Soames was appointed Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) in the 2010 New Year Honours.[8] In November 2010 Rupert Soames gave a speech to Holyrood in which he warned, "In the UK, we are already close to the rocks, because, over the next 8 years a third of our coal-fired capacity, two-thirds of our oil-fired capacity, and nearly three-quarters of our nuclear capacity will be closed down either through age or the impact of the European Large Combustion Plant Directive. Absent a massive and immediate programme of building new power stations, with concrete being poured in the next two years, we will be in serious danger of the lights going out."

"Serco do a bunch more that didn't even make our story: As well as thanking God for his success, CEO Chris Hyman is a Pentecostal Christian who has released a gospel album in America and fasts every Tuesday. Amazingly, he was also in the World Trade Centre on 9/11, on the 47th floor addressing [Serco] shareholders 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. Serco run two Australian jails already, Acacia in WA and Borallon in Queensland. They're one of the biggest companies In the UK for running electronic tagging of offenders under house arrest or parole."

"Serco farewell to NPL after 19 years of innovation

Sercosaid goodbye to the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) at the end of December 2014 after 19 years of extraordinary innovation and science that has seen the establishment build a world-leading reputation and deliver billions of pounds of benefit for the UK economy. During that period under Serco's management and leadership, NPL has delivered an extraordinary variety and breadth of accomplishments for the UK's economy and industry. Some of the key achievements during that time have been:… It has been estimated that work carried out by the Centre of Carbon Measurement at NPL will save eight million tonnes of carbon emissions reductions (2% of UK footprint) and over half a billion pounds in economic benefit over the next decade….
