Cluelessness Via Tweet: An Advanced Lesson From MeganMcArdle



D.C. metro police are about to launch random bag checks on the D.C.
metro system. A prominent D.C. blogger, who serves on the Riders’
Advisory Council, calls
"security theatre" that wastes money without stopping

the checks will go on with metro police using Sabre 4000 scanning
devices. The devices are manufactured by Smiths Detection, which
is a wholly owned subsidiary of UK-based Smiths Group PLC. Right
smack dab in the middle of the Board of Directors of Smiths is non-executive
director, David Challen. Non-executive means that he doesn’t work
for Smiths, but was put on the board to keep an eye on what is going
on at Smiths, for someone powerful. Who might want to do that? Well
the way to get a sense is to see what Challen is doing when he is
not attending Smiths’ board meetings.

He is Vice-Chairman
of Citigroup Europe and director at Rothschild-controlled Anglo
American. It’s not immediately clear how Citigroup and Anglo fit
into the Smiths Group equation, but you can be sure there is a fit
and that Challen wasn’t just picked for Smiths’ board because he
may have a nice personality.

And so again,
we see the banksters and the global elite lurking deep in the background
of all this new surveillance equipment. They aren’t on the front
lines, but if you dig deep enough they are always there. Always
