I had never even heard of Kroll until I was watching FOX news the other day and they had this guy talking about the next potential attack being in the middle of the country in a stadium with a dirty bomb.

The guy was with Kroll Securities, so I decided to look em up.

Kroll is the world’s leading risk consulting company. For more than 30 years, Kroll has helped companies, government agencies and individuals reduce their exposure to risk and capitalize on business opportunities. Kroll is an operating unit of Marsh & McLennan Companies, Inc., the global professional services firm.
Kroll’s clients include many of the world’s largest and most prestigious corporations, law firms, academic institutions, non-profit organizations, sovereign governments, government agencies, and high net-worth individuals, entertainers and celebrities.

Kroll’s seasoned professionals were handpicked and recruited from leading management consulting companies, top law firms, international auditing companies, multinational corporations, special operations forces, law enforcement and intelligence agencies. Kroll also maintains a network of highly trained specialists in cities throughout the world who can respond to your global needs 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

These guys are huge. Where Blackwater is kind of rough and tough bang em up agency,

these guys are sophisticated, 007 types.

So, I start asking myself, why would they have a guy on, predicting the form, method, and general location of the next terrorist bombing.

And then I found this video from 1997 with Charlie Rose interviewing Brian Jenkins, then Deputy Chairman for Kroll talking about the World Trade Center bombing and Ramsey Yousef.

Now Brian Jenkins looks like one of those guys who would just as soon kill ya as look at you.

What concerns me in the video is a 14:38, where they mention the potential collapse of the World Trade Centers.

Google Video Link

I think, if it was a government OP to pull the WTC's then Kroll would have been carrying out the plan of the day.

And with Kroll predicting the next major US attack, and the document from MAJESTYTWELVE that I dug up stating there would be a second major attack in the US in the heartland, I'm beginning to wonder,

who are these guys?

In 1996, President Clinton appointed Mr. Jenkins to be a member of the White House Commission on Aviation Safety and Security. From 1999 - 2000, he served as an advisor to the National Commission on Terrorism and in 2000 he was appointed to be a member of the U.S. Comptroller General's Advisory Board. Mr. Jenkins is a research associate at the Mineta Transportation Institute, and since 1997 has directed its continuing research on protecting surface transportation against terrorist attacks.


NEW YORK – October 30, 2007 – Kroll, the world’s leading risk consulting firm, announced today that the Office of the U.S. Trustee of the Department of Justice has awarded Kroll’s Government Services division a contract to provide random and targeted audits of bankruptcy filings

Kroll Associates UK Limited is a limited liability company incorporated in England (registered number 2020412) whose registered office is at 10 Fleet Place, London, United Kingdom EC4M 7RB.

Why is it, that every conspiracy that I dig up has a tie to the London Banking Community.

Understand this. The head of Kroll worked for the office of the comptroller.

That is the head financial position in the US!

The OOC is what regulates the Central Banks!

If Kroll isn't a tool of the Illuminati, then I don't know who is.

Simon Freakley may only have done one audit during his time as a professional chartered accountant at Andersen, but as an insolvency practitioner he has seen hundreds of businesses, and turned them inside out and upside down.

Staring out at St Paul’s Cathedral from Kroll’s London office, Freakley admits he can barely believe three years have flashed by so quickly since he was thrust into the position of chief executive at Kroll, the corporate restructuring, investigative and forensic accounting company.

Three years ago this month, he was rushed out of a weekend away in France and told to hightail it to New York, where his then boss Michael Cherkasky asked him to take on the job of Kroll CEO.

At the time Cherkasky had been appointed chief executive of Marsh & McLennan ­ a professional services company that had bought Kroll earlier in the year ­ replacing Jeff Greenberg, who resigned under a cloud following US regulatory investigations into illegal payments by MMC’s brokers.


Kroll’s notable cases over past 30 years include:

Restructuring Enron

Early in 2002, Kroll’s US corporate advisory subsidiary was given the monumental challenge of restructuring Enron, the collapsed energy giant with $65bn (£32bn) of assets.

With Kroll’s Steve Cooper at the helm as Enron’s interim CEO and chief restructuring officer, a Kroll team is still working with Enron’s current management and creditors committee to implement a viable plan to maximise value for the company’s stakeholders.

Unravelling Saddam Hussein’s financial network

The Kuwaiti government hired Kroll between 1990 and1991 to investigate the financial network used by Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein to hide assets in the West. Kroll’s work linked Hussein to millions in assets held through nominees in the US and Europe, exposing his front companies and agents.

Check out this interesting statement. Not sure what to think about it.

In brief, NBC retained me as a consultant for their planned story on Files. I hired the detective firm of Jules Kroll. JK established from telephone records Files was in Chicago, not Dallas, on November 22,1963. We then placed a call to Files from Dick Clark's office (DC was producer), and I interviewed Files about Kroll findings. He said he had a twin brother, who no one knew about, and whom he met shortly before November 22, and who he murdered after November 22. He said it was his twin brother in hospital with his wife, not him. His wife, however, said there was no twin, and Kroll confirmed there was no twin. My view then and now is that Files invented the story for the money it would earn him.

Kroll has over 60 offices worldwide, with 34 of them being in the US.

So, I was digging into the scope of their operations.

Kroll originated as Kroll Associates, Inc., which was
founded in New York City in 1972 by Jules Kroll. The
firm began as a consultant to corporate purchasing
departments and gradually expanded its operations
to include a variety of investigative, intelligence and
security services. Kroll established a reputation as Wall
Street's private eye during the hostile takeover era of
the 1980s, and later gained worldwide renown for its
success in searching for assets hidden by Jean-Claude
Duvalier, Ferdinand and Imelda Marcos, and Saddam
Hussein. In December 1997, Kroll merged with armored
car manufacturer O’Gara-Hess & Eisenhardt and became
The Kroll-O'Gara Company, a public company listed on
NASDAQ as "KROG." In August 2001, following the sale
of the O’Gara businesses, the company’s legal name
was changed to Kroll Inc. and its ticker symbol became
"KROL." On July 8, 2004, Kroll was acquired by Marsh &
McLennan Companies Inc. (MMC).

While most of Kroll’s services are marketed under the
Kroll brand, Kroll also conducts business under four
sub-brand names. Please note also that contractual relationships
are established under various legal subsidiary
names. The Kroll sub-brand names are:

Kroll Factual Data
Kroll Ontrack
Kroll Talbot Hughes
Kroll Zolfo Cooper

Kroll’s current organizational structure and diversified
service offerings result from the integration of companies
acquired in recent years, among them:

Nice find man... You certainly dug up some key facts. I really think this community has very little to go on for a responce to what you found. Considering how secretive these kinds of companies are and for good reason. I guess all we can do is wait and see.

One of the companies recently aquired caught my attention because some cloud seeding programs recently approved using silver iodide
was National Flood Control

Our company has specialized in flood hazard disclosure since the early 1990's, developing the required expertise and technology to provide a comprehensive national hazard disclosure solution. Through the powerful combination of our manual mapping and quality control methodology, along with our proprietary software, GIS applications, and highly trained staff, NFR completely insures the accuracy and quality of our products. The result is a complete, guaranteed flood hazard disclosure solution designed for the mortgage, insurance, and realtor industry.

Just think, this is one of what must be hundreds of companies owned by Kroll, Inc.

These guys are the real players.

Here's another interesting read. 9/11 Sears Tower plot of Goldman-sachs, Kroll, and AIG.

Is the Sears Tower filled with thermite right now? With double Goldman Sachs and Kroll links to WTC and the Sears Tower, you should take note. Evidence below that the Sears Tower was meant to be hit on 9-11, though it failed to be... or evidence that it is soon planned to be hit by the U.S. Government. And the high level link of Goldman Sachs to everything from Bush Senior's private terrorism slush fund moneylaundering, to helping Silverstein buy up the towers to destroy evidence of Goldman Sachs own financial criminality with Bush Senior, to now buying up and owning the Sears Tower, the "other 110 story tower" they own. Goldman Sachs were big residents themselves in the Chicago Sears Tower, though as soon as they buy it, they quickly plan to move out!

Wow. Crazy.

I was just about to post this.

A German company, CONVAR of Pirmasens near the French border, was given more than 400 computer hard drives from the wreckage of the World Trade Center. These are extremely sensitive computer components that went through the collapse of the World Trade Center. Using blue laser technology, CONVAR succeeded in reconstructing all the data from the computer debris. The CONVAR data salvage has made it completely clear that more than $100 million in insider credit card transactions took place in the hours and minutes before the twin towers collapsed. in June 2002, Ontrack/Convar was aquired by Kroll Inc. (Kroll O'gara Eisenhardt), which has strong ties with the US Government. One of their former employees, Jerome Hauer, organised a security job for ex-FBI anti-terror chief John O'Neill in the Twin Towers, where he died on Sep11th.
In 1993, Maurice Greenberg's American International Group (AIG ->), became co-owner of the "private spy agency", Kroll Associates. 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.


So Kroll was in control of security for the World Trade Centers on and before 9-11.

And now they own the data from the hard drives recovered.

These guys smell about as dirty as they get.

I think [/Kroll]

I'll be glad to no longer hear "Blackwater this" and "Blackwater that" and people claiming Blackwater is the antichrist and all this idiocy.

As if there are no other "defense firms" or mercenaries or if Blackwater is even of a substantial size?

From the Pinkerton's of the U.S. to Securitas AB of Sweden there are merc groups everywhere with their hands in far more than Blackwater, a very young company.

The moment I saw the plethora of "Blackwater" themed "news" stories pop up I figured "Blackwater" was going to be the new ignorance-based buzz word to be over-used and abused at every turn as though never before has there been such a group or never before has the U.S. government used such a group.

Excellent OP!!! It seems you have done your homework. The rabbit hole seems to keep getting deeper. Scary stuff. I have never heard of Kroll before.

reply to post by Quazi176

The rabbit hole is indeed a deep one.
Have a look inside.

When asked by moderator Glenn Yago of the Milken Institute, what his recommendations would be for increasing homeland security, Jules Kroll, Executive Chairman of the Board for Kroll Inc., responded with a four-fold layout. First, he stated “we must set standards for what is expected at places that hold large numbers of people such as stadiums.”

MilkenInstitu te.Org

The message boards have been abuzz with speculation involving Mr. Milken, following a one hour conference call and presentation by CEO Patrick Bryne. In that call, he articulated an illegal stock manipulation scheme that was run by a "Master Mind", and which involved hedge funds, the media, influential investors, and private investigators Kroll Associates.

The Kroll connection got me thinking, as did the speculations that the Master Mind was a play on words, where the initials signaled the identity of the arch criminal directing the game. MM = Michael Milken. If that was the case, what corroborating evidence could be found to either destroy the idea, or support it?

In Den of Thieves, a book by James B. Stewart about the Drexel Junk Bond days, we get a glimpse of the seamy side of Wall Street and the evil that some men cheerfully do. in it, particularly, we get a connection made between two of the players in the Bryne piece: Jules Kroll, founder of Kroll, and Michael Milken. From the book: "They hired a private investigator, Jules Kroll, to unearth damaging information about Boesky. They portrayed Boesky as a liar who couldn't be trusted, and as a far greater criminal than the government had admitted." Kroll has since then been a speaker for the Milken Foundation, and is David Einhorn's neighbor.


The Den of Thieves. How ironic. Are the thieves protecting the thieves?

If they pay good, I'd take a job in risk management, minus the screwing over and killing other people.

posted on Dec, 4 2007 @ 02:22 PM
Awesome post OP!!!

I think that I will do some research of my own. What really surprised me was the post about how they bought the German company that recovered the data from the HDs in the WTCs. It seems that they are trying to cover up something. Kinda reminds me about the plot in the movie Shooter with Mark Walburg or how ever you spell it.

Two thumbs up great read!

posted on Dec, 4 2007 @ 06:41 PM
Kroll is not fooling around. They are a multi national corp. They deal in just about everything you can think of.. But one major front is a risk advisement firm. And leading at homeland protection production.
I first heard about Kroll when I watched who killed John Oneil..
I learned alot about this company called Kroll and opened a few new paths of research. But when you start getting this deep is when you find what you are really up aginst. Scary stuff here.

I just can't stop digging up the dirt.

Dirt Diggler.

Following the 1993 World Trade Center bombing (see February 26, 1993), the New York Port Authority asks investigative and security consulting firm Kroll Associates to help design new security measures for the WTC. Kroll’s Deputy Chairman Brian Michael Jenkins leads the analysis of future terrorist threats and how they might be addressed. Assessments conclude that a second terrorist attack against the WTC is probable. Although it is considered unlikely, the possibility of terrorists deliberately flying a plane into the WTC towers is included in the range of possible threats.


This guy Brian Jenkins shows up all over the place. He must be a key figure. He spent 17 yrs in Spec Ops.

Wow amazing post here OP

Just goes to show, those who venture further into something, can gain things that we never would of thought existed. Excellent find, to you and others on this Kroll group.

Flagged and starred.

Great way to show that ATS is at the top of any MSM, because we post the truth (well, we try to at least!)

What jumped out at me was the National Flood Research aquisition less than a year before Hurricane Katrina and only months before the Asian Tsunami. Hazard disclosure services?

Now I'm not claiming that this company is actually creating floods, but if someone is, I'd bet this is who they have to report to. Then this company passes their "hazard" analyses on up the line through Kroll, who turns the whole picture over to their top customers.

Say for instance, an American President wanted to wipe out an American city for politics and profit. (Let's assume that the military, or some entity friendly to his agandas, has the technology to carry out this destruction by means of a "natural" event.) He could turn to Kroll to estimate the reprecussions of such an event in detail, and work to maximize profits and/or effect.

Also of curious note, the Asian Tsunami happened exactly one year after the devasting earthquake in Bam, Iran. 70% of the city was leveled and two-thirds of the 90,000 people living there were killed.

Two years after the Asian Tsunami, there was a magnitude 7.2 earthquake at the southern tip of Taiwan.

This was a fascinating read!!I've never heard of Kroll until today and the added research and links by others helps tremendously.
I wish I could give stars and flags to everyone.I really appreciate threads like this one.

I appreciate the response in this thread.

Maybe we can get the truth out to a few, if not many.

I still believe God has blessed America.

And the rest of the world.

I have faith in the power of hope.

And with knowledge,
they will lay down their swords.

yeah Kroll....
is this the first you've heard about them?
I think the movie zeitgeist, or 'who killed john oneil' goes into them in more detail too. Check them out if you haven't seen them

Both free to view, and good movies.

Zeitgeist -

Who killed john oneil -'Neil

Seems it was who killed john oniel that talks alot about Kroll.
Even the company name sounds evil huh?
