Scotland Yard confirmed the identity of 11 of the 12 locations where traces of contamination have been discovered. These are -- all in London: the Itsu sushi restaurant in Piccadilly, the Millennium Hotel in Grosvenor Square, Litvinenko's home, Barnet General Hospital, University College Hospital, 25 Grosvenor Street, 58 Grosvenor Street, 7 Down Street, the Sheraton Hotel in Park Lane and the two grounded BA aircraft at Heathrow. The identity of the 12th location is unclear.
Erinys International, won a $40 million contract to train 6,500 armed guard to protect
Iraqi oil wells, pipelines, refineries, and power plants, mostly in southern Iraq. Until late 2004,
when the Iraqi Oil Ministry took charge of security at oil facilities, Erinys operated as part of a
$100 million joint contract with approximately 14,000 guards (mainly Iraqi nationals). In support of
Erinys, Florida-based AirScan Inc. provides aerial surveillance of Iraqi pipelines. Under Saddam
Hussein, Iraqi pipelines were guarded in part by local tribes, and in part by two army divisions.
AirScan is one of the named defendents in the law suit Galvis Mujica v. Occidental Petroleum, et al. filed April 23, 2003 in the US District Court in Los Angeles. The suit was filed by the Washington DC based International Labor Rights Fund and is based on the Alien Tort Claims Act  . The AirScan employees, Arthur McClintock, Jose Orta, and Charlie Denny have disappeared and no one seems too ready to cough them up . The Coast Guard is investigating whether Orta, who was allegedly flying the plane, was a military officer on active duty at the Coast Guard at the time . AirScan has denied any involvement in the attack .
AirScan has been implicated in running Pentagon weapons to counter-insurgency operations in Uganda, as well as to rebels in the Sudan fighting the Khartoum regime [
AirScan was hired by the MPLA government of Angola in late 1997 to provide surveillance of the mostly Chevron owned oil installations in the Cabinda region, a region Angola had just weeks earlier led an offensive from into the Congo. The MPLA had several firms hired in the region including Defence Systems Limited and MPRI, who had been set receive the contract but pulled out at the last moment.
The timing and location of hiring AirScan leads some to believe these firms are providing covert training and assistance in oil wealthy areas of Africa .
Brigadier General Joe Stringham, a founding member of AirScan and in charge of operations in Cabinda was responsible for many covert counter-insurgency activities in El Salvador during their dirty war in the '80s .

Awesome research! You get my WATS vote this month.
Keep us updated if you find out anything interesting about the other addresses.
And yes, I have that dream all the time except I'm wearing a chicken suit and the women are eating cold rice pudding and tossing pickles.

Here is an interesting angle. I might try to follow up on this if I get time over the weekend, although I'll be in Munich working. Hope the Hotel has a good broadband service.
