Police can’t say Skripal & Amesbury cases linked, or that those responsible will be caught

The head of Britain’s counter-terrorism operations, Neil Basu, has said the agency cannot positively link the poisoning in Salisbury, Wiltshire, of former Russian agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia to the more recent poisoning of the late Dawn Sturgess and her partner Charlie Rowley in the same town with an as yet unspecified nerve agent. Nor can they guarantee authorities will catch those responsible for the nerve agent poisoning of the Skripals and Dawn Sturgess,

Basu, who heads Counter Terrorism Policing nationally, told residents of Amesbury he would “love to be able to say that we have identified and caught the people responsible and how we are certain there are no traces of nerve agent left anywhere in Wiltshire, but the brutal reality is that I cannot offer you any reassurance or guarantee at this time.”

Sturgess and Charlie Rowley reportedly fell ill after coming into contact with Novichok on June 30, and Sturgess died days later. This is the same nerve agent believed to have poisoned Sergei and Yulia Skripal in March. Public Health England have repeatedly said there is no wider threat to the public arising from the Skripal case.

We can perhaps believe the latter assurance as well respected chemists have confirmed that Novichok, the nerve agent generally agreed to have been used in the bid to assassinate the Skripals would decompose if exposed to the environment for three months. The rest of the official narrative however was always as full of holes as a bagel bakery.

A new development has only added to the confusion:

According to Rob Sloane in The Blogmire.com on 28th March, an article appeared in the Sun, which talked about a 12-year-old boy from Salisbury, Aiden Cooper, who was apparently in a park with his parents, when he saw the Skripals and went over to them to feed the ducks:

“A schoolboy told yesterday how he was caught up in the poison spy drama after assassination target Sergei Skripal gave him bread to feed ducks. Aiden Cooper, 12, was playing in a park with pals when they saw Skripal and daughter Yulia beside a stream. They were handed bread and are among the last people to have had contact with the retired ­Russian military intellig­ence colonel, now fighting for his life.

It is usual when citing The Currant Bun (for U.S. readers that’s rhyming slang,) to have a truckload of salt handy as every other word needs to be taken with a large pinch of the stuff, but in this case not only is there no reason why the people quoted in the article, would make up such stories. In any case, the story was repeated in a number of other outlets (The MirrorThe Mail and Metro for instance) and parts of it at least have been confirmed by police when they were questioned on the story, although they did not volunteer the information in the aftermath of the incident when the media and establishment were focused on blaming The Russians.

The interesting thing about The Mirror, The Mail and Metro pieces is that they are all vague about a quite crucial detail. The Mirror and The Mail both tell us that the incident took place “near the Avon Playground”. And Metro tells us that the incident took place at “Riverside Park”. The Avon Playground mentioned by The Mirror and The Mail is next to the Avon River, and it is also about 50 yards or so from the bench where the Skripals were found (as an aside, this is not the same Avon as runs through Stratford-upon-Avon. Avon is a Celtic word meaning river and there are several river Avons in modern Britain). As for Riverside Park mentioned by Metro, no such named park exists in Salisbury although there is a Queen Elizabeth Garden which is a park on the riverside and is where Dawn Sturgess is alleged to have picked up a syringe part filled with an unknown substance. But the important point is that from the details given in these articles most people would assume that the duck-feeding incident took place in the same park as the bench on which the Skripals were found.

Yet all three of these media outlets are wrong, and in a way that may well be very significant. Turning back to the report in The Sun, we find that it is by far the most detailed of all the reports on the duck incident. In fact, it appeared three days after the others appeared, with The Sun sending a reporter to interview the boy and his parents. From that and from independent reports supplied by people living in Salisbury, we learn that Queen Elizabeth Garden is on the other side of town from locations linked to the Skripal case and the police timeline for the incident does not mention the Russians having been there at all. Yet if police officers managed to contact Aidan cooper’s parents from a photo taken in the park they must have known both he and the Skripals were there.

All this does not by any means prove that Russian agents were not involved in the first poisoning, but it does reveal that a lot of the evidence used to support the government’s accusations was unreliable if not totally fabricated.

So what is going on? Is there any link between the incidents? Do the police or security services have any idea what really happened, let alone who might be responsible? The more we learn about this case the more questions it throws up.

“Smart City” Projects are Really Police Extreme Surveillance Programs.

The propaganda always dresses social engineering projects aimed at enhancing the powers of the state to manipulate and control in friendly terms that seem to promise benefits to our security rather than threats to our freedom. Take the phrase “Smart Cities.”
How wonderful it will be, the authorities tell us, to live in smart cities where the streets and buildings are intelligent and will protect us from danger and from risk. We will live within the loving embrace of technology. The reality will not be like that of course …

Court documents cast doubt on Boris Johnson’s claim nerve gas is in ‘no doubt’ Novichok

Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and Prime Minister Teresa May have in the past two weeks both gone out on a limb to accuse the Russian government and Vladimir Putin himself of having engineered the chemical attack in Salisbury UK which almost claimed the lives of former double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter and led to many people with no connection to the spy or security services in Britain or Russia needing hospital treatment. Johnson has insisted that British chemical lab Porton Down told him the nerve agent used to attack the Skripals was definitely Novichok. However, court documents from a case which grated permission for investigators to take further blood samples from the two main victims, suggest there is no such certainty.

In an interview with Deutsche Welle on Thursday, the UK foreign secretary claimed that analytical chemists working at the UK’s chemical weapons facility at Porton were “absolutely categorical” in confirming to him that the source of the nerve agent, identified by the UK as A-234 – also known as Novichok – was Russian. Johnson said: “Let me be clear with you… the people from Porton Down, the laboratory… they were absolutely categorical and I asked the guy myself, I said, ‘Are you sure?’ And he said there’s no doubt.”

A decision from a High Court Judge on Thursday, however, granted permission to take new blood samples from Sergei and Yulia Skripal for analysis by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW).

In his judgment, Justice David Basil Williams included a summary of the evidence, revealing Porton Down’s analysis. The judgment, which includes sworn court evidence from a Porton Down chemical and biological analyst, reads: “Blood samples from Sergei Skripal and Yulia Skripal were analyzed and the findings indicated exposure to a nerve agent or related compound. The samples tested positive for the presence of a Novichok-class nerve agent or closely related agent.”

Former British ambassador to Uzbekistan Craig Murray wrote in a blog post that the evidence therefore does not unequivocally confirm that nerve agent used on the Sripals is definitely Novichok (which is a relatively easy substance to produce,). Murray also claimed that scientists at Porton Down have failed to find evidence of Russian “culpability” as Novichok and similar substances can be produced from easily obtained materials by any comptent laboratory technician.

The judgment comes despite multiple affirmations from the UK government that the nerve gas came from Russia. The evidence given in court raises questions over the information provided by the government to parliament, the EU, NATO, the United Nations and the public.

May ‘under incredible pressure’ from colleagues to blame Russia in ex-spy poisoning

Poisoned Russian Spy Linked To Christopher Steele

The alleged Russian double agent poisoned along with his daughter in Salisbury, England last weekend has been linked to former British Spy Christopher Steele, who was paid by Hillary Clinton’s people to compile the dodgy dossier on Trump in the 2016 US election, according to financial news site Zero Hedge. Steel’s dossier led to the idiotic attempts by the US Democratic Party to have Donald Trump removed from office, without having produced a single piece of hard evidence on which to indict Trump.

Col Sergei Skripal, who is currently in intensive care after he and his daughter Yulia were poisoned with a suspected nerve agent, was recruited by MI6 while working at the British embassy in Estonia, according to Russian intelligence services. The Daily Stirrer has not featured this story previously as it has been seized upon by mainstream media and conveniently allowed them to sideline the bigger stories of the past week.

Yulia Skripal - daughter of poisoned spy
Yulia Skripal – collateral damage?

It is unfortunate that Sripal’s daughter Yulia was harmed, to the best of our knowledge she is entirely innocent of malfeasance, but the usual “It’s the Russians” screeching from mainstream media ignored the facts that Skripal was allegedly a double agent, being paid by both British and Russian intelligence services, and is also believed to have been involved in industrial espionage since being retired by the Russian government. such people tend to have a lot of enemies.

When Russia learned that Skripal had been paid by MI6 to expose undercover Russian intelligence agents in 2006, the same year Russian double-agent Alexander Litvinenko was poisoned in London, he was sentenced to 13 years in prison. Four years later he was among a group of prisoners released by Moscow in exchange for 10 US spies, after which he moved to the UK and befriended an employee of Christopher Steele, at that time a private security consultant, A report in The Daily Telegraph states:

The Telegraph understands that Col Skripal moved to Salisbury in 2010 in a spy swap and became close to a security consultant employed by Christopher Steele, who compiled the Trump dossier. -Telegraph

Steele’s firm, Orbis Business Intelligence, notoriously assembled a series of memos containing anti-Trump opposition research to Fusion GPS, the first seventeen of which were compiled into the unverified “Trump-Russia” dossier which the FBI relied on to obtain a spy warrant against a Trump campaign associate.

21 people were taken to hospital last week, affected by a nerve agent released when Yulia Skripal reportedly opened a “gift from friends” as they ate in a restaurant. UK counterterrorism police and domestic security agency MI5 are investigating why the Russian double-agent was targeted seven years after his release from a Russian penal colony. Skripal’s son, Alexander, died last year at the age of 43.

If Skripal assisted Steele in compiling the dossier, which relies on information from senior Russian officials despite Steele never having traveled to Moscow, it could explain the motive behind the assassination attempt in Salisbury town centre.

Valery Morozov, a former construction magnate who fled Russia after revealing corruption, claimed last night that Col Skripal, 66, was still working, and remained in regular contact with military intelligence officers at the Russian embassy. That would raise the possibility that he was still feeding intelligence to people in this country.

Google DeepMind’s Dodgy NHS deals were investigated — but tough questions avoided

from Business Insider

An independent review panel has raised a number of concerns about how Google DeepMind is working with the National Health Service (NHS) in a report published on Wednesday.

Artificial Intelligence subsidiary DeepMind tasked the panel with scrutinising its NHS partnerships after New Scientist revealed that the company had quietly been given access to 1.6 million patient records to develop a kidney monitoring app called Streams without their prior knowledge.

The unpaid panel includes ex-Cambridge MP Julian Huppert, The Co-Operative Group’s current chief digital officer Mike Bracken, venture capital investor Eileen Burbidge, and six other members.

The panel’s 22-page report, which cost DeepMind £59,315, raised concerns about subjects including:

  • The lack of clarity in the original information sharing agreement (ISA) with the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust
  • 11 “minor” vulnerabilities that were found across the app, the API (application programming interface), and the servers in DeepMind’s data centre
  • And the lack of work on public engagement, particularly in relation to the links between DeepMind Health and Google.

While there were criticisms, the report — published two days after the UK data watchdog ruled that DeepMind’s first deal with the NHS was illegal — also commends DeepMind for its overall high level of data security, and for openly publishing its new contracts with the NHS with minimal redactions. The report provides a number of recommendations for DeepMind to consider when working with the NHS in future.

UK Government Ignore Terrorists Linked to Manchester Massacre for Decades

Salman Abedi, the Manchester suicide bomber responsible for killing 22 people at the end of an Aleana Grande concert at Manchester Arena   was previously known to British security and intelligence agencies. In fact, as we reported yesterday, UK Security Services had been warned of his jihadist sympathies many times over a five year period.

As suspected and as was the case in virtually all recent terror attacks carried out in Europe – including those in both in France and Belgium, the bomber was born in the nation where the attack was carried out, and radicalised first in fundamentalist Mosques and then during trips to Islamist held areas in middle east conflict zones.

The Daily Telegraph reported under the, “Salman Abedi named as the Manchester suicide bomber – what we know about him,”:

Salman Abedi, 22, who was reportedly known to the security services, is thought to have returned from Libya as recently as this week. While spin doctors tasked with creating the official narrative focused their attempts at misdirection on a “lone wolf” attacker theme, claiming, before any evidence had been gathered, that Abedi organized and executed the blast himself. This was quickly discredited when it emerged during the police investigation that the nature of the improvised explosive device used and the detailed planning of the attack revealed it was an operation that could only have been carried out  by someone who had acquired militant experience through direct contact with a terrorist organization, and had the support of a terrorist organization with extensive experience.

The Telegraph and The Manchester Evening News also reported a Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) cell in Manchester: A group of Gaddafi dissidents, who were members of the outlawed Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG), lived within close proximity to Abedi in the Whalley Range distict.

Among them was Abd al-Baset Azzouz, a father-of-four from Manchester, who left Britain to run a terrorist network in Libya overseen by Ayman al-Zawahiri, Osama bin Laden’s successor as leader of al-Qaeda.

Azzouz, 48, an expert bomb-maker, was accused of running an al-Qaeda network in eastern Libya. The Telegraph reported in 2014 that Azzouz had 200 to 300 militants under his control and was an expert in bomb-making.

Another member of the Libyan community in Manchester, Salah Aboaoba told Channel 4 news in 2011 that he had been fund raising for LIFG while in the city. Aboaoba had claimed he had raised funds at Didsbury mosque, the same mosque attended by Abedi. Thus, evidence that an active and highly motivated Libyan Islamist terror cell had been active in Manchester with the knowledge of the security services for many years before the Manchester attack exists in abundance. within the community’s members.

LIFG is a proscribed terrorist group listed as such by the United Kingdom’s government in 2005, and still appears upon its list of “Proscribed terrorist groups or organisations,” found on the government’s own website.

The accompanying government list (PDF) states explicitly regarding LIFG that: The LIFG seeks to replace the current Libyan regime with a hard-line Islamic state. The group is also part of the wider global Islamist extremist movement, as inspired by Al Qa’ida. The group has mounted several operations inside Libya, including a 1996 attempt to assassinate Mu’ammar Qadhafi. Thus, astoundingly, according to the Telegraph, a thriving community of listed terrorists exists knowingly in the midst of the British public, without any intervention by the UK government, security, or intelligence agencies – with members regularly traveling abroad and participating in armed conflict and terrorist activities before apparently returning home – not only without being incarcerated, but apparently also without even being closely monitored.

LIFG also appears on the US State Department’s list of Foreign Terrorist Organizations.

In early 2011, in the wake of the Libyan revolution and the fall of Gaddafi, LIFG members created the LIFG successor group, the Libyan Islamic Movement for Change (LIMC), and became one of many rebel groups united under the umbrella of the opposition leadership known as the Transitional National Council. Information released by the US State Department reveals a plan for a senior Al Qaeda-affiliate leader to head the regime put into power by US-led military operations – which included British forces.

Not only this, but prominent US politicians would even travel to Libya to personally offer support to the putative Islamist regime in Tripoli. In one notorious image, US Senator John McCain is seen shaking hands with and offering a gift to the terrorist leader in the wake of the Libyan government’s collapse.

The US State Department report on LIFG includes with information about its “area of operation,” claiming (emphasis added): “Since the late 1990s, many members have fled to southwest Asia, and European countries, particularly the UK.”

For the people of Britain and  the residents of Manchester, the British government is guilty of a catastrophic failure to act on information regarding LIFG, having failed to inform citizens of the threat living in their midst. This, presumably, will be excused by the usual plea that to have deported these people would have deprived them of their human rights. Now Manchester’s dead have been deprived of all their human rights in a way that cedes no possibility of redress, and as one of the rather dubious ‘human rights’ often quoted to defend a failure to act to prevent terrorism is the right to family life, how does that work for people who must now cope with the violent death of a family member.  While the British population is divided and distracted with a more general strategy of tension focused on Islam, Muslims, and Islamophobia, the very specific threat of US-UK-EU sanctioned terrorists living and operating within national communities in the developed world is overlooked by the political leaders, the media and law enforcement agencies.

A few days ago the world was going crazy about the alleged chemical weapon attack by the Assad regime in Syria. But while European and American media and politicians were laying the outrage on with trowels, in Mosul, Iraq, the US backed ‘moderate rebels’ (the same ISIS afilliated guys as are our allies in Syria,) were attacking Asmerican and Iraqi government personnel with chemical weapons of their own …

The War On Cash Intensifies In Response To Trump and Brexit

It appears Europe is charging towards a cashless society. Just days after Davos’ elites discussed why the world needs to “get rid of currency,” the European Commission has introduced a proposal enforcing “restrictions on payments in cash.”
– because only terrorists and drug-dealers need cash (nothing at all to do with totalitarian control over a nation’s wealth) – we are not surprised that this proposal from the European Commission would appear…

France Falling Apart As The World Looks On

France will elect a new president in May 2017. Politicians are already campaigning and debating about deficits, welfare recipients, GDP growth, and so on, but they look like puppets disconnected from the real country. Violence. It is spreading. Not just terrorist attacks; pure gang violence. The media does not dare to say that this violence is coming mainly from Muslim gangs

Global Ransomware Attack Exposes Folly Of Putting All Your Eggs In One Basket

UK broadcast news and online news sites have been dominated for most of the day by the cyber attack that has affected government and business computer systems. Most disturbing consequence of the attack, which hijacks computer screens with a message that files have been encrypted and can only be unlocked on payment of a large fee (a type of malware known as Ransomware) is fact that hospitals across the United Kingdom had gone dark , locking staff out of patient records and appointment systems..

The situation has got significantly worse as The BBC reports the ransomware attack has gone global.

Screenshots showing a message put out by a popular screen hijacker app show a program that locks computers and demands a payment in Bitcoin have been posted online by organisations hit by the attack.

It is not yet clear whether the attacks are all connected. One cyber-security consultant tweeted that he had detected 36,000 instances of the ransomware, called WannaCry and variants of that name.

“This is huge,” he said.

There have been reports of infections in the UK, US, China, Russia, Spain, Italy, Vietnam, Taiwan and others.

The BBB details a number of Spanish firms including some of the biggest businesses in spain were among the apparent victims elsewhere in Europe.

Telecoms giant Telefonica said in a statement that it was aware of a “cybersecurity incident” but that clients and services had not been affected.

Power firm Iberdrola and utility provider Gas Natural were also reported to have suffered from the outbreak.

There were reports that staff at the firms were told to turn off their computers.

In Italy, one user shared images appearing to show a university computer lab with machines locked by the same program.

The Blue Screen Of Death

Bitcoin wallets seemingly associated with the ransomware were reported to have already started filling up with cash.

“This is a major cyber attack, impacting organisations across Europe at a scale I’ve never seen before,” said security architect Kevin Beaumont.

According to security firm Check Point, the version of the ransomware that appeared today is a new variant.

Several experts monitoring the situation have linked the attacks to vulnerabilities released by a group known as The Shadow Brokers, which recently claimed to have dumped hacking tools stolen from the NSA.

_____________________________________

An attack such as this has been inevitable due to the inherent vulnerabilities of the world wide web (conceived by an amateur, remember) and the near monopoly of the Windows operating system and Google search engine that has been encouraged by governments of the USA, the EU and most leading nations of the free world.

While it’s true that things are much more convenient if we all use the same computer systems, convenience is a double edged sword. What’s convenient for the lay user is even more convenient for cyber criminals who are rogue programmers and analysts.
