1. The Human Resources Leadership Forum (HRLF) is the organization for senior-level HR professionals in New England who want to learn and broaden their strategic and practical knowledge. Half-day programs focus in-depth on strategic and leading-edge HR issues presented by speakers who are internationally renowned authors, academics, practitioners, and global thought leaders. HRLF was founded in 1985 and remains an all-volunteer membership organization.

2. Who are HRLF's members? HRLF's 350-plus members are advanced practitioners representing multiple public and private corporations, academia, and consultancies. Because the senior-level membership represents a cross-section of industries, HRLF members can count on peer-to-peer conversations to provide relevant perspectives on the program and applications of the topic. On average, members remain with HRLF for nine years.

3. What does HRLF offer its members? HRLF provides high value to its members with an emphasis on thought-provoking programs and speakers and a unique opportunity for members to network with advanced HR practitioners from throughout New England . Annual dues of just $600 enable members to attend all meetings and give them access to nationally-recognized speakers, a members-only online membership directory, and on-going communication from the Board. HRLF enables members to build a community of senior HR leaders through multiple networking opportunities and small-group discussion meetings. Members-only committees provide another way for people to get to know each other as do ad hoc support programs put in place during unusual circumstances such as periods of high unemployment.

4. Is HRLF part of a national organization? HRLF is an affiliate member of the Human Resources Planning Society (HRPS), which gives HRLF members several additional benefits, including reduced registration fees at the HRPS conference and monthly teleconferences, access to online research reports about HR best practices and trends, free admission to programs sponsored by other HRPS affiliates across North America, and access to speaker presentations and other information from all HRPS affiliates.

5. How do I get involved in HRLF? There are HRLF committees that rely on the contributions of member volunteers. You'll find a list of these committees, their objectives, and members online. Simply call the chair of the committee of interest, and he or she will tell you when the next meeting is to be held.

6. When are dues payable? Dues are invoiced in the fall with payment expected by the end of that calendar year. For people who join after July 1st, dues are at a reduced rate.

7. How many meetings are held each year and at what location? HRLF holds at least six half-day meetings annually. With members from Boston and Cambridge and points north, south and west, the HRLF Board attempts to schedule meetings at different hotels along the Route 128/95 beltway as well as in the city.

8. Why would someone join HRLF rather than another HR organization in the area? People join HRLF to find a community of other senior leaders in HR, to advance their professional development, and interact with people facing the same issues and concerns. The seniority of members is unique to HRLF. While other HR organizations might focus on specific industries, more tactical program topics, or entry-level and mid-level training needs of HR people, HRLF is dedicated to meeting the advanced needs of senior HR leaders.

9. What are the criteria for joining? HRLF members are advanced human resources professionals. From the perspective of company titles, this generally translates to people who are at the director level or above.

74. Please discuss the Abraxas source of revenues to include a breakdown by percent from source, amount from the CIA, percent from DoD contacts, and percept from private equity placements.

75. Please discuss the relationship, similarity, or differences between Abraxas Corp located in McLean, and another firm by the same name in Texas. Is the firm the same, or is the method this information was loaded in error, and there is no relationship between the two firms.

Organization: ABRAXAS CORP
BUSINESS PHONE: (817) 498-8500
FORT WORTH, TX 76180-4035

76. Verizon General Counsel William P. Barr, formerly with the CIA legislative liaison [Asst. Legislative Counsel], overlapped with current Abraxas employees assigned to the CIA. Please discuss the ongoing discussions, if any, between Abraxas, Verizon, and the CIA on information related to the (flawed) legal view that telephones are not people, and that equipment does not have the right to privacy or a 4th Amendment RIGHT to require a warrant. Ref William P. Barr has overlap with Frederick A. Turco who was assigned to the Agency at the same time; In the 1970s Barr was an analyst, and Turco was assigned to India and Pakistan.

77. and are listed. Please discuss the relationship between Abraxas Corp and Abraxas Europe, and the potential neutrality issues implicated in using Switzerland as a country to allegedly support illegal violations of Geneva.

78. Sandia Labs under DOE also has a connection to Abraxas through the Advanced Concepts Group; indirectly associated with the Office of Advanced Systems and Concepts under OSD. Like Red Flag at Nellis, one case study involves using red hat and black hat teams to simulate attacks on the CIA and NSA resources worldwide. [integrated simulation science, CCS-5 ] Sandia and LANL are also linked with the NSA Cryptography, and MIT personnel. Please discuss the flow of personnel, information, and NSA cryptography information between NSA, Abraxas, and the Sandia/LANL Labs. Include a summary of all technical papers, conferences, and other documents jointly shared to support the illegal abuse of prisoners of war in violation of Geneva. How was it ensured that NSA-intercepted information, used to target civilians, was not deliberately cloaked by friendly forces, and was not actually from the Sandia Labs or others involved in the domestic training exercises and other stress testing?

79. Central to the war fighting doctrine is the notion of joint tactics, techniques, and, procedures, or JTTP, related to OSD, DOJ, and DHS. The Attorney General would have us believe that the issues of Geneva are unclear, yet Hamdan specifies these detailed requirements. Please discuss the methods, arguments, and other points the Verizon General Counsel William P. Barr provided to the JTTP related to domestic surveillance; and how Abraxas viewed these documents on the Intel Link system.

80. JTTP writing process, as reported by the Army is a 21 month process. Abraxas-affiliated CIA personnel, would have to travel from the CIA-related positions, attend the Army school, learn the JTTP, and then re-enter their covered operation overseas. Discuss how Abraxas ensured that CIA employees were trained on the JTTP process, attended the Army training on writing JTTP, and how these JTTP-manuals were reviewed by Abraxas after placement on the Intel Link system.

81. It is of concern when OSD and NSA under the Secretary of Defense develop JTTP which permits illegal capture of private information without warrants. SecDef under 5100.77 program has a requirement to ensure Geneva. Please discuss the concerns Abraxas personnel had with the JTTPs which outlined data capture policies, how these concerns were reconciled through discussions with Verizon General counsel, and what concerns were raised about the issues associated with using illegally captured data to support force planning, CIA placement, and use of non-lawful methods to interrogate prisoners who had not been charged with any crime.

82. Abraxas allegedly ensures that CIA personnel are well positioned to support war fighters in any combat theater using unconventional, non-uniformed forces. CIA has also been authorized to detain and arrest American civilians. Is it OSD policy that the continental United States, and American civilians are located in a combat zone defined as the "Joint Rear Area Operations"? What involvement does Abraxas have in placing CIA personnel inside American firms stateside, in public institutions and corporations where the primary language is English? How does the Abraxas placement system related to the DOJ under cover informant program; what methods are used to ensure that an Abraxas-placed agent is not interacting with a DoJ informant paid to provide incorrect information? What method is used to screen data to ensure the information is from a bonafide foreign source, and not back channeled from the second hand in the information pipeline?

83. In a general sense Memorandums of Agreement and Joint Tactics, Technique, and Procedures are but two methods procedures are formalized and placed on the Intel Link system. Please discuss the Abraxas efforts where personnel act as a technical advisor to the documents, and provide system analysis to ensure their final work product integrates with the Intel Link system architecture, and conceptually within the existing MOAs and JTTP documents on Intel Link.

84. The NARUS STA 6400 system has various IEEE specs detailing how NAVY personnel can splice the cables underwater. DoD Army Manuals specify the means by which laser systems are incorporated into land warfare. [ ] Abraxas, when it places CIA personnel, do not necessarily place those personnel in exclusive civilian positions or in embassies. The placements can include the armed services. All military personnel are required to take an oath to the US Constitution. The SECDEf has a 5100.77 laws of war program. Please discuss the Abraxas efforts to ensure CIA personnel are trained on using these communications devices, are adequately trained to perform Optical Fiber-related maintenance, and can adequately perform training which AT&T, NAVY and Army have provided for underwater operations. What method does Abraxas use to ensure that the CIA personnel can pass for a member of the armed services, while still maintaining primary loyalty to the CIA, not the DoD? How does Abraxas place CIA personnel in the military, but evade the UCMJ requirements which attached to the oath of office under 5 USC 3331.

85. The current Fort Hoot Chief of Staff was assigned to the Army's 5th Signal Command. Abraxas has links worldwide including 20 languages. The strategic languages include Russian, Chinese, Arabic, and Japanese. Please discuss the relationship Abraxas has with 5th Signal Command in Germany, and how the illegally captured NSA information was funneled through 5th Signal Command to the detention centers in Eastern Europe. What interaction did Abraxas have with the Fort Hood Chief of Staff while he was assigned to Army's 5th Signal Command?

86. The Joint Information Operations Planning Course (JIOPC) (757) 443-6336/DSN 646-6336 is a one-week/four-day resident Flag Officer-support program. The purpose of this course is to provide indoctrination, and ensure that Joint Information Operations support war fighters. There are various manuals which war fighters can review [17 Oct-10Nov 05 JIOPC P-06-1; 16 Jan-10 Feb 06 JIOPC P-06-2]. Please discuss the Abraxas access to these manuals on the Intel Link system; the method Abraxas used to ensure its operations were lawful, consistent with the Constitution; and the planned illegal activities and violations of the war crimes statute in Eastern Europe did not generate a written Title 28-exception report to Congress. [Other courses include C4I Staff and Operations Course (JC4ISOC); Joint Information Operations Orientation Course (JIOOC); Joint Information Operations Planning Course (JIOPC)]

87. Abraxas prides itself on providing online support training. Please discuss the use of the Danish, Dutch, and German website information [ de.abraxas-medien ] at the Virginia Technical college [ ] related to the National Defense University Training [ edu.ndu.jfsc ]. Please provide a copy of the course syllabus Abraxas uses to ensure personnel assigned, managed, and placed are adequately trained on constitutional and Geneva requirements as promulgated under the 5100.77 Laws of War program. Please provide a copy of the specific check sheets, rosters, training reviews or other paper, electronically written, typed, hand written, voice transcribed, laser- audio- or digitally- recorded, or technical methods used to ensure personnel assigned have the requisite qualifications, training, and meet other indoctrination requirements to credibly pass as a member of the armed forces during their overseas assignment.

88. Please provide information on the XENON Foundation which is associated with both Sandia and Abraxas.

89. [ Vision Fest: A Vision of the Analytical Environment of the Future ] is linked with Mitre, Abraxas, Sandia, and the Advanced Concepts Group. Please discuss the MITRE-related cloaking (OSIS) which Abraxas uses to hide when it is accessing pubic sites, or masking how it accesses the internet through Alexandria, VA.

90. Abraxas is also allegedly in a position to review the effectiveness of their CIA-placements. One factor is whether personnel are or are not sufficiently trained to pass under that cover. One such program has been publicly reported as being the energy community. Nuclear Material at security categories I - IV is something of interest to LANL, Sandia, and other energy experts. Please discuss the problems with providing information as it related to Iraq; and discuss the subsequent problems Abraxas had in filling positions once the IAEA demonstrated that Iran did not have a boanfide nuclear program. Please provide a list of all Abraxas contacts where the awarded fee was less than in the original contract. Ref What performance awards does Abraxas get by providing desired intelligence -- which could be fabricated -- that support the President’s illegal objectives of Geneva violations, illegal war, unlawful invasion, and pre-textual excuses to invade countries like Iran or Iraq who do not pose an imminent threat. Is there an award fee system, fee arrangement, or other financial bonus Abraxas is provided if, in exchange for not firing a CIA agent Abraxas provides desirable information which could be fabricated or not reliable?

91. One important training consideration before placing CIA personnel in energy related fields is that they have sufficient technical expertise. This involves more than education and familiarity with foreign weapons development. Training and preparation includes study of available resources under US and allied control. How were initial IAEA-related intelligence-gathering/observation plans tested against American nuclear forces; what method was used to validate the observed indicators were related to bonafide nuclear weapons related efforts; who were contrary explanations and invalid conclusions compared to the Iranian and Iraqi efforts; how did Abraxas ensure that the assigned-personnel were sufficiently trained on American nuclear capabilities as a baseline to credibly pass as energy experts, but still have the background in non-enemy forces to provide informed judgments on their observations and incoming HUMINT information while in their assignment?

92. Please provide Abraxas-source documents related to the removal-transfer of PETER NANOS from LANL, and his subsequent assignment to DTRA. Provide e-mails, messages, or other documents related to NANOS departure, and subsequent communications related to the Advanced Concepts Group plans and communications with DTRA, Sandia, LANL, Mitre, OSD, NSA, DHS and CIA.

93. NSA in the Descriptive Summaries through Telcordia is able to provide funding for Verizon to conduct various Optical Fiber certification. Ref Within those NSA-DOD budget documents are specific Executive Orders which prohibit classification of illegal activities. All DoD-related requirements that interfaces with any Verizon equipment must be certified at the Verizon-approved centers. Telcordia is able to provide this testing to meet Verizon testing specifications. FALGOUT and SPEAR of Abraxas interfaced with ABACHI of Telcordia [ (732)758-3238 ]. Telcordia and Abraxas are also jointly known to the MIT ER personnel providing student placement [jparrill@MIT.EDU Mon Feb 9 14:19:59 2004]. The Conference was the [ Department of Homeland Security EAGLE Pre-Proposal Conference ]. Please describe the communications between Abraxis, Verizon, and Telcordia as they narrowly related to the optical training provided CIA agents before being placed in their overseas assignments. What methods were used to provide this training; how were the CIA agents educated on the Telcordia, Verizon, NARUS STA system; and what was their understanding of the technical details related to installing, accessing, and downloading information from and to the Intel Link system using this knowledge. Please share any e-mail, notes, working papers, conference trip reports, slide presentations, evening dinner party recollections, side discussions, or other data which Abraxas, Verizon, Telcordia have shared as it relates to transmission of data that was used to render, detain, abuse, and commit alleged war crimes against prisoners in violation of the laws of war and Geneva Conventions. The notes should include Abraxas discussions which took place with DoJ and other intelligence personnel who have participated in the Potomac Golf Association. Please include in your response a detailed list of all contact with the PGA after December 2000 to today's date. Please discuss how Abraxas was able to allegedly discuss/plan/support these illegal violations of Geneva in Eastern Europe, but remain in compliance with Executive Orders, and still comply with the Award Fee requirements that all activity and funds are related to lawful activity, as required under Article 1 Section 9 of the US Constitution. In short, Abraxas needs to explain why it remains entitled to retain all or all award fees, contract amounts or any thing else of financial consideration related to arguably alleged illegal war crimes violations.

94. The CIA agents and contactors involved in the alleged Geneva violations in Eastern Europe required substantial support. To provide a full back-story, Abraxas allegedly had to coordinate with other firms to establish credentials, and provide appropriate responses. Please discuss the names of firms, documents provided, and other information and data transfers that Abraxas allegedly relied upon to place CIA agents so that they could engage in illegal Geneva Violations. Discuss the changes in policies and reviews, if any, Abraxas allegedly did once placed-CIA agents were known to be associated with alleged war crimes. Discuss what methods Abraxas used to ensure that placed-agents were appropriately supported; and that supporting firms understood the legal or illegal objectives of the CIA and contractor activities.

95. Open media indicates CIA and DOD have lost track of various intelligence agents and contractors. It remains to be explained how they are being paid. To support a full back-story, commercial firms are used, and can independently operate ensuring there is no financial link between the entity and the US government. DoD is given the authority to establish commercial entities to support NSA, CIA, and other intelligence gathering operations. However, these entities are not protected, but are allegedly related to supporting illegal war crimes. It is not unexpected that commercial entities have been established that are openly hostile to the United States, and run independent commercial operations which support these anti-American policies and programs. Please discuss the linkage between the DoD, CIA personnel, CIA contractors, and the DoD-CIA commercial entities. Please discuss the method the US Government uses to ensure that the hostile-public actions of these covertly-placed entities are separated from bonafide hostile acts. What information from the DoD-CIA-placed entities was used by the US government as a basis or pretext to illegally violate Geneva. Regardless the veracity for that information, what was the reason Abraxas chose to allegedly provide support to operations that it knew, or should have known, were not lawful, illegal, and contrary to the Geneva Conventions.

96. Abraxas is publicly reported to have a commercial-contractual relationship with DHS. The DHS Program Offices are not a single entity, but includes a myriad of activities devoted to multiple programs. Under the DHS, there is the DHS Inspector General which may share and compare notes with the CIA IG and Government Accountability Office. Please provide an index of all GAO, CIA IG, and DHS IG reports related to the DHS-Abraxas arrangements. The index should include title, date, and subject of the report. Discuss the average response time for Abraxas inputs to the various DHS and CIA program offices on Congressional questions. Please include all versions of the program office personnel management lists to include program office structure, key personnel, office symbol, phone number, mailing address, Intel Link identifying information, and CIA-DHS electronic addresses. Include the addresses used to send information using non-government communications and contactor-supplied electronic note systems.

97. SAS99 is a statement on accounting standard used to evaluate fraud and assess the appropriate level of audit scope. One indicator is illegal activity. Please discuss how the DHS IG and CIA IG did or did not increase audit scope at Abraxas once the alleged CIA violations of Geneva were disclosed. Is there sufficient documentation of the SAS99 review within Deloitte & Touche when they issued their opinion on Abraxas revenue growth?

98. SAS70 is an audit standard to guide auditors when reviewing internal controls. There are two snapshots: One is a point in time; and a second is a time period. Please discuss how the SAS 70 assessments changed at Abraxas once the President formally announced in 2006 the existence of the CIA detention centers. Please discuss the reasons other indicators of illegal activity were or were not reviewed; and how the internal knowledge of the alleged illegal activity within CIA-DHS IG did or did not affect the direction of investigations. What was the DHS and CIA IG plan to review the alleged war crimes; and what provisions, if any, did DHS-CIA IG make to account for the lack of investigations into the Geneva violations?

99. The National Intelligence Council has the goal of overseeing the National Intelligence Estimate. How did Abraxas factor the NIE into is planning for supporting allegedly illegal war crimes in Eastern Europe?

100. A Brier Score is a comparison between the actual and predicted values. Please discuss how the MITRE estimates of risks, and their coordination with Sandia/LANL, did or did not get factored into the Abraxas estimates. Specifically, once it was known that the Iraqis did not have WMD, how did the Brier Scores change with respect to the risk of civil war, backlash against the United States. Please discuss how the decision points changed; and the associated programs used to respond to the unfolding backlash against American interests once the Geneva violations were disclosed. Please discuss how the estimates factored into lessons from the Teguba report and other lessons from the Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo, and Afghan Box car incidents. Please include in your discussion an assessments of how the Brier Scores were or were not tracking to available resources; and to what extent, if any, the internal judgments were or were not matched by credible plans and resources. Please discuss in your response an assessment of the effectiveness of this scoring system in the responsiveness of Abraxas to these changing needs. Please discuss the sensitiveity analysis Abraxas coordinated with CIA-DHS SETA, including MITRE in developing models to predict which types of agent-placement-backstories would or would not explain away the Geneva violations.

101. STRATCOM when it conduct targeting exercises uses various simulation software. These are well known to MITRE, which in some cases develops the software. One input to the planning process is information related to targets. In Iran, the centrigue effort has been delayed, and is well below the original Iranian plans; also the nuclear power plant efforst have been delayed. Prior to targeting Abraxas ensures that CIA personnel are placed in various positions in the target country. Please discuss the nexus: How Abraxas placement increases when there is no evidence; how Abraxas justified to personnel their mission of placing CIA agents, but there was no evidence to be found; and the problem of providing support for alleged war crimes in Europe, but there being no intelligence to glean.

102. Putting aside the legal asurdity of debating toture, as a public demonstration of the uitlity of using torture, the Preident discussed the alleged foiled attempts. Howevr, these foiled attempts have been discredited. The supposed LA Building attacks were faricated, as were the UK Flight Attacks in the Summer of 2006. Abraxas is paid to place agents to gather inforamtion. What feedback has Abraxas received from placed agents on the need for palcement, or the difficulty in creating backstories when there does not appear to be a legimate need for that effort. What is Abraxas view on creating backstories for agents when those agents are not needed, there is no real threat, and there is no bonafide threat to be discovered. What efficiencies has Abraxas discussed with CIA, DHS, or DoD management to better tailor agent placement to real threats, as opposed to politically-driven objectives. Once it was known that the CIA agents and contractors in Europe were allegedly involved in illegal war crimes, how did this change the discussion between Abraxas personnel and their counterparts in industry and government in terms of: Need to place agent, complexity of teh backstory, alternative methods to gather information, or the alternatives to usingn cover-stories, or using overt methods like diplomatic sight visits and economic cooperation.

103. The core issue is that where there is no threat, there is no need to increase above plan the placement of CIA agents. Indeed, it is a separate matter where the threat is manufactured, self-made, or as a result of a failed policy. Please discuss how Abraxas learned, provided, supported, or created the CIA-placement goals. Did Abraxas have inputs to the Office of Special Plans on which information was or was not bonafide? How did Abraxas have inputs to the agency personnel who oversaw the contact award? Were there situations where Abraxas provided briefing copies to the government, then changed the presentation based on government-driven objectives, not Abraxas performance. Please discuss the software scheduling tools, training, and other administrative support Abraxas personnel used when ensuring their planned placements and back stories were or were not meeting the schedule targets. Please discuss any technical issues, program delays, or unexpected agent-placement problems which Abraxas is aware which affected the ability to place an agent. Once illegal activities were disclosed at the CIA detention centers, how did the Abraxas placement program change: What new milestones were shifted; what opportunities did this create; how were positions that were not filled, or otherwise could not be given a timely back-story resolved more effectively? How did this adjustment affect Abraxas award fees or other financial awards? Please discuss the CIA SETA contractor inputs to the Award Fee, and how Abraxas responsiveness and agility did or did not factor into the Award Fee consideration by the Fee Determining Official. How did aware fee discussions change in tone, substance, and form once Geneva violations were discussed, disclosed, or known. Were Abraxas personnel concerned the alleged illegal activity could result in fines, litigation, or loss of preivous awards? If so, how was this risk factored into the CEO plans, and business plans bewteen 2001 and 2006, and decisions to enter other markets, seek other experties, hire legal staff, or acquire other sources of revenue.

104. CIA cover stories are robust, but they are not so complicated that they cannot be remembered. To successfully create a backstory, Abraxas allegedly has to work with various firms to provide public confirmation, and if needed false documentation to corroborate the false cover. To create a backstory, the backstory has to be sufficiently different from the actual CIA mission, activity, and operation so that there is no discovery of the real CIA activity. To place someone undercover, that cover has to be different from what the CIA agents and contractors were actually doing. Successfully placing someone, creating a false backstory, allegedly requires Abraxas to know what information cannot be disclosed. To ensure the backstory did not give any hint of the real CIA operation, Abraxas allegedly would have to know the nature of the real, illegal activity the CIA agents were engaged. To place someone undercover, Abraxas allegedly would have to know what the CIA agent was really doing to ensure the cover story did not disclose the real undercover activity. Consider the issues of the CIA agents in Italy, which the Italian prosecutors have identified as being complicit in the abduction of an Italian national. Please discuss the support Abraxas gave to the contractors, intermediaries, firms, and other entities to place personnel in Italy so that they could attempt to kidnap person without detection. Describe the communication, planning, task review, support, knowledge, details, subsequent agreements read to creating a credibly back story for a CIA agent involved in the illegal rendition-kidnapping in Italy, and the ability to engage in alleged unlawful Geneva violations. What was Abraxas told about rendition, illegal detentions, and the relationship the individuals had with prisoner handling; and how was this information used to ensure the backstory did not overlap with the actual activity related to the alleged violations of Geneva? Please disuses the software used, the method to compare the backstory to the real operations; how the schedule to place CIA agents was or was not met; CIA contract award fees were or were not reviewed; which internal audits using SAS 70 were used to ensure the back stories created were at all times unrelated to the real operations. Please describe the process to review actual activities, where this information came from; and how the approved backstory was shown to be unrelated to the real activities and alleged Geneva violations.
