Watching the movie « Who killed John O’Neill » I again realized the importance of Kroll.
Remember Jerome Hauer worked for Kroll.
Here as a starter the work of Ewing2001 on Kroll:
Kroll Associates, Inc.
Kroll Associates, a security consultant firm, which was renamed to Kroll Inc. in August 2001, started in New York City in 1972. In December 1997, Kroll merged with armored car manufacturer O’Gara-Hess & Eisenhardt to form The Kroll-O'Gara Company.http://www.krollworldwide.com
O'Gara is responsible for the security of all US-Presidents since 1945. However the background of Kroll is very interesting, too: In 1993, Maurice Greenberg’s American International Group (AIG ->), became co-owner of the "private spy agency", Kroll Associates, as a result of rescuing Kroll from bankruptcy with a cash infusion.
Kroll was notorious during the 1980s as the “CIA of Wall Street” due to the prevalence of former CIA, FBI, Scotland Yard, British secret service and British Special Air Service men Kroll employed for corporate espionage in takeover bids, as well as for destabilization of foreign nations.
(-> Greenberg, Maurice)
Maurice Greenberg was deeply involved in chinese trade in the 80s, where Henry Kissinger was one of his representatives. In the China trade, Greenberg became very close to Shaul Eisenberg, the leader of the Asian section of the Israeli intelligence service Mossad, and agent for the sales of sophisticated military equipment to the Chinese military.
Maurice Raymond Greenberg was born in New York City May 4, 1925, the son of Jacob Greenberg and Ada (Rheingold) Greenberg. The young man adopted the nickname “Hank” to make people think of a popular American baseball player with the name, Hank Greenberg.
Greenberg served in the U.S. Army in the Korea conflict. He joined the insurance firm, Continental Casualty Co., in 1952. Continental executive J. Milburn Smith recommended Greenberg to the C.V. Starr insurance/spy organization, which made Greenberg its vice president in 1960, its president and CEO in 1967, and its chairman, succeeding Starr, in 1969.
From 1988 to 1995, Greenberg was a director of the New York Federal Reserve bank – this branch of the system is the main instrument through which Federal Reserve chiefs and the Bank of England traditionally execute their U.S. political-economic policy. Greenberg was deputy chairman of the New York Fed in 1992 and 1993, and New York Fed chairman in 1994 and 1995.
During 1996, while Greenberg was deputy chairman of the Council on Foreign Relations (-> CFR), he chaired the CFR task force on intelligence, which Global Free Press: Peircing The Veil Of Censorship http://globalfreepress.com/ewing2001/www.lebensaspekte.de/groundzer
published “Making Intelligence Smarter: The future of U.S. Intelligence.” This report mostly served to exhibit Greenberg’s access to the intelligence
community; but he parlayed it into a nomination by Senator Arlen Specter and others, for Greenberg to be Director of the CIA (->).
Greenberg has used his connections to covert intelligence, supranational institutions, private bankers and speculators, and his huge global cash inflow, to shape a unique personal empire.
Since 1997, Frank G. Wisner, Jr., has been a board member of Kroll , and is currently Greenberg’s Deputy Chairman for External Affairs. Wisner’s father was a founder of the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, who killed himself over the scandal from his being duped by British-Soviet masterspy Kim Philby.
Frank Wisner, Jr., is a director of the George Bush-linked energy giant Enron (a client for whom AIG negotiated payments from Peru over nationalization of Enron operations).
In the early 1990s, Miami-based private investigator Lou Polumbo joined Kroll Associates. According to sources in the industry, Polumbo brought with him a personal history of involvement with the Medallin and other South American narcotics cartels; his business included helping relocate some of the capabilities of these cartels out of Colombia.
The deal to bring Polumbo into Kroll was worked out by Avram Shalom, the former head of Israel’s Shin Beth secret police. Shalom went to work for Kroll; he had been fired as Shin Beth boss due to a scandalous massacre of Palestinians in the Israel-occupied territories by his Shin Beth agents.

And here two quotes I find very intriguing:
“Kroll Inc., a firm that's done everything from track down Saddam Hussein's hidden riches to help ensure that the mob doesn't regain control of New York's garbage business. It even advised the World Trade Center on security matters.”
And here my favorite with my comments in italicsRIVERA: Kroll Associates, was later hired to improve security at the doomed twin tower complex. In fact, his associates had a meeting scheduled in the tower for 10:00 yesterday morning.
What a coincidence!What happened to your associate?
Mr. MICHAEL CHERKASKY (Former Prosecutor): Well, fortunately, they showed up early, and because of good security, they wouldn't let him up early.
What the f**k is this? They don't allow Kroll guys in before 8:30??
RIVERA: Good security. How ironic.
Mr. CHERKASKY: Good security. So that they were turned away. They had a meeting about the security around--around the center, around the port. They went across the street for some coffee. And during that period of time, the--the first jet went into the Trade Center.
Well, again what a coincidence that they (all of them, no exception!) didn't retry entering the building before 8:46!
RIVERA: And the mee--and the people they were scheduled to meet with?
Mr. CHERKASKY: Unfortunately, the people they were scheduled to meet with took that first blow right into that area in that first--first hit.
Too bad, that this guys were let in due to good security....

Karpiloff, program manager, security systems for the WTC..." Mr. Karpiloff, a Port Authority employee, stayed on at the WTC as part of a transition team following the lease to Silverstein and was killed there on 9/11/01.
I get the impression that Kroll is the most important front for the CIA, and not just CIA, since they protect 60 (!!) presidents and prime-ministers.
Let's go to some extreme conspiracy stuff (not suitable for DU's limited mind set)
Some may know William Cooper who initially became known for his UFO documents (MJ-12) which he made discovered when he was Naval Intelligence and he left the spooks mad calling them a bunch of freemasons wanting to rule the world.
Those documents have later been declared invalid by William Cooper himself, and they were false leads (he called the whole UFO thing one enormous bunch of false leads). False leads often serve a purpose to hide the real story, especially for stuff which is circulating only within their own community, so what was in MJ12?
In 1954 ...
President Eisenhower met with the aliens and a formal treaty between the Alien Nation and the United States of America was signed. We then received our first Alien Ambassador from outer space. His name and title was "Omnipotent Highness Krlll", pronounced Krill. In the American tradition of distain for royal titles he was secretly called "Original Hostage Krlll". You should know that the Alien flag is known as the "Trilateral Insignia". It is displayed on their craft and worn on their uniforms. Both of these landings and the second meeting were filmed. The films exist today.http://www.mindcontrolforums.com/secretgovernment-origin-identity-purpose-MJ-12.htm
So the story is bogus, but what are they hiding
What was 1954 as well. Oh yeah, that was the start of Bilderberg.
What happened since then? David Rockefeller wanted to set up a group of 300 of the brightest minds and call it Trilateral.
Oh yeah, there were a couple of intelligence guys at those meeting (only half or so). Krlll, Kroll? Alien ambassador Krlll or shadow government ambassador Kroll??
Regardless of the above: France and Brazil have already named them as a CIA front, and kicked them out of their countries. And they were often described as teh CIA of Wall Street, a large part of their operation is not for the US government but for the international bankers.
