WTC1 security desk picture of CERBERUS:

*note: a "cerberus" is a 3-headed beast (usually dog) from greek/roman mythology: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cerberus

Cerberus (Greek: Κέρβερος, Kérberos) is the name given to the entity which, in Greek and Roman mythology, is a multi-headed dog which guards the gates of Hades, to prevent those who have crossed the river Styx from ever escaping...

(a modern rendition of a cerberus)

(a classical rendition of a cerberus)

Cerberus was the son of Echidna, a hybrid half-woman, half-serpent and Typhon, a fire-breathing giant whom even the Olympian gods feared. His brother is Orthrus, always depicted as a two-headed hellhound.[6] The common depiction of Cerberus in Greek mythology and art is as having three heads, a mane of live serpents (similar to Medusa's hair) and a dragon's tail. In most works the three-heads each respectively see and represent the past, the present and the time yet to come, while other sources suggest the heads represent birth, youth and old age.[7] Each of Cerberus' heads is said to have an appetite only for live meat and thus allow the spirits of the dead to freely enter the underworld, but allow none to leave.[8] Cerberus was always employed as Hades' loyal watchdog, and guarded the gates that granted access and exit to the underworld (also called Hades).[9]

now back to-

thanks dyew for the kroll links.
thanks albert for the cerberus info.

ok, neverminding the cerberus from the OP, but in keeping with the actual thread topic itself,
who was indeed in charge of wtc security on 9/11?
i did some diggin around the SEC site and the following is what i compiled:


During the first quarter of 1997, the Company contracted to provide services to several new clients. The Company signed an agreement to provide a broad range of services in connection with the upgrading of Amtrak's access control systems at eight facilities in the northeast and California. Additionally, it contracted to prepare a security master plan for Xerox Corporation's manufacturing and engineering facilities in Rochester, New York. The Company also finalized an agreement to provide a comprehensive access control system upgrade at the headquarters of Rostelecom, the primary Russian long distance telephone service provider. This project expands Securacom's Moscow client base which also includes Moscow Local Telephone System and US WEST. In April, the Company signed a joint venture agreement with Ahmad N. AlBinali & Sons Co., a large Saudi Arabian engineering and construction company, to develop and conduct business in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

DEPENDENCE ON LIMITED NUMBER OF CLIENTS For the year ended December 31, 1996 the Company's three largest clients, New York City's World Trade Center, the Metropolitan Washington Airport Authority and MCI Telecommunications Corporation, in the aggregate, accounted for 64% of its revenues, and three additional clients together accounted for an additional 18% of its revenues. The Company anticipates that its three largest clients will continue to account for the majority of its revenues during 1997. The loss of any of the Company's major clients could adversely affect the Company's business, operating results and financial condition. Several of the projects for the Company's major clients will be substantially completed in 1997, and the Company's future operating results will depend on its ability to develop future sales prospects and generate orders from new and existing clients.

THREE MONTHS ENDED MARCH 31, 1997 COMPARED WITH THREE MONTHS ENDED MARCH 31, 1996 Revenues increased by more than 400% from $0.7 million in the three months ended March 31, 1996 to $3.3 million in the three months ended March 31, 1997. The increase was due to work completed for new clients and an increase in work completed on existing projects. Revenues from the World Trade Center, which commenced in October 1996, were $1.9 million in the first three months of 1997. In addition, revenues from the Metropolitan Washington Airport Authority increased from $0.3 million in the first three months of 1996 to $0.7 million in the first three months of 1997. In addition, $0.1 million of revenue was recognized in the first three months of 1997 on a project for which costs were accrued during 1996.

YEAR ENDED DECEMBER 31, 1996 COMPARED WITH YEAR ENDED DECEMBER 31, 1995 Revenues increased by 83.4% from $3.2 million in 1995 to $5.8 million in 1996. In October 1996, the Company was awarded an $8.3 million contract as part of the security upgrade at the World Trade Center. Revenues of $1.6 million were recognized from this project in 1996. Work for the Metropolitan Washington Airport Authority increased by $1.0 million from $0.2 million in 1995 to $1.2 million in 1996. Work for MCI Telecommunications Corporation increased by $0.2 million from $0.6 million in 1995 to $0.8 million in 1996.

The Company currently conducts limited international operations from its Moscow office from which it has provided services to several clients in Moscow. In April 1997, the Company signed a joint venture agreement with Ahmad N. AlBinali & Sons Co., a Saudi Arabian engineering and consulting company, to develop and conduct business in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The Company is evaluating several additional opportunities to expand its international operations, which it anticipates it will initially undertake through joint ventures or partnerships with local and international companies.

CLIENTS During the past three years the Company has provided services to approximately 50 clients, including airports, hospitals, prisons, corporations, utilities, universities and government facilities. The Company's clients have included the following: Airports and Aviation Corporations Fresno Airport EDS United Airlines Gillette Corporation Washington-Dulles International Airport Hewlett-Packard Company Washington National Airport Lazard Freres Yuma International Airport Mary Kay Cosmetics MCI Telecommunications Corporation Mobil Corporation NationsBank US WEST Government Other Los Alamos National Laboratory City of Baltimore Central Sandia National Laboratory Booking and Intake Facility Tennessee Valley Authority Moscow Local Telephone System U.S. Department of Energy New York City's World Trade Center U.S. Navy Rostelecom Rowan County (N.C.) Prison University of Texas

COMPETITION The security industry is highly competitive. The Company competes on a local, regional and national basis with systems integrators, consulting firms and engineering and design firms. The Company believes that it is the only provider offering its comprehensive range of services on a national basis. As a result, the Company competes with different companies depending upon the nature of the project and the services being offered. For example, the Company has competed with Johnson Controls, Science Applications International Corporation and Sensormatic for systems integration work, and Lockwood Greene and Holmes & Narver for consulting and planning and engineering and design work.

MANAGEMENT The directors and executive officers of the Company are: <TABLE> <CAPTION> NAME AGE POSITION <S> <C> <C> Wirt D. Walker, III....................... 51 Chairman and Director Ronald C. Thomas.......................... 52 President, Chief Executive Officer and Director Larry M. Weaver........................... 47 Executive Vice President, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Financial Officer Charles C. Sander......................... 48 Senior Vice President Franklin M. Sterling...................... 64 Senior Vice President Albert A. Weinstein....................... 66 Vice President Matthew V. Wharton........................ 35 Vice President Michael V. Toto........................... 52 Vice President Jon W. Balakian........................... 39 Vice President Mishal Yousef Soud Al Sabah............... 36 Director Marvin P. Bush(1)......................... 40 Director Robert B. Smith, Jr.(1)................... 60 Director </TABLE>

MARVIN P. BUSH has served as a director of the Company since 1993. Mr. Bush is a director of the Winston Partners Group, Inc., a private investment firm he founded in 1994, and has been a member of the Board of Directors of Kerrco Inc., an oil and gas company, since 1989. Prior to founding the Winston Group, Mr. Bush was a partner at John Stewart Darrell & Company, an investment advisory firm, and was employed by Shearson Lehman Brothers as a Vice President/Financial Consultant.

the last time marvin bush is listed as a director is mid 1999:

mid 2001 (marvin bush no longer listed as a director, but the bios of the existing board are worth a peek):

The following table sets forth as of May 31, 2001 certain information with respect to the beneficial ownership of the Company's Common Stock by (i) each person known by the Company to be the beneficial owner of more than 5% of the Company's voting securities, (ii) each of the Company's directors, (iii) each of the Named Executive Officers, and (iv) all executive officers and directors of the Company as a group. <TABLE> <CAPTION> Number Percent of Shares (7) of Total <S> <C> <C> KuwAm Corporation 204,562 2.0% 2600 Virginia Avenue, N.W. Washington, D.C. 20037 (1) NetCom Solutions International, Inc. 700,000 7.0% Wirt D. Walker, III (2)(3) 681,153 6.8% Kamran Hashemi (4) 2,000,000 19.9% Barry W. McDaniel (3) 95,000 * Ronald C. Thomas (3) 133,164 1.3% Albert Van Graves (3) 63,333 * R. Michael Lagow (3) 43,333 * Mishal Yousef Saud Al Sabah (3)(5) 250,326 2.5% Emmit J. McHenry (3)(6) 705,000 7.0% Robert B. Smith, Jr. (3) 25,000 * James A. Abrahamson (3) 25,000 * Charles W. Archer (3) 25,000 * All Officers and Directors as a Group (11 persons) (7) 4,046,309 40.4%

TO RATIFY THE COMPANY'S ISSUANCE OF 2,000,000 RESTRICTED SHARES OF COMMON STOCK IN CONNECTION WITH THE ACQUISITION OF SECURITY SYSTEMS INTEGRATION, INC. General On November 30, 2000, STRATESEC acquired Security Systems Integration, Inc., a Virginia corporation ("SSI") in a transaction in which SSI merged with a subsidiary of STRATESEC and the subsidiary subsequently merged with the Company. In connection with the transaction, the Company issued 2,000,000 restricted shares of its common stock to the sole stockholder of SSI. SSI provides complete security systems to meet the complex requirements of government customers. The services provided by SSI include vulnerability analysis, engineering design, procurement, systems integration and maintenance and technical support. The systems include: o Access control systems, which are designed to exclude unauthorized personnel from specified areas; o Intrusion detection systems, which incorporate ultrasonic, microwave and other sensors to protect against unauthorized entry into a facility; o Closed circuit television systems, which monitor and record entry or provide surveillance of designated areas and often include digital recording capabilities for ease of review and transmission of the captured data; and o Personnel alerting systems, which provide wireless capability to transmit voice or digital alerts to personnel of impending threats and allow management the ability to tailor instructions to the specific threat.

SSI has in place contract vehicles with the federal government that allow it to provide systems and services to the government without having to go through a complete competition. These include a blanket contract with the General Services Agency (GSA) and a Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) with the Army. Each of these open-ended contracts can be used by any government agency wishing to do business with SSI. As a result, the marketing and sales efforts of SSI are considerably less than would be necessary if the entire competition cycle had to be completed for every sale. SSI relies principally on its CEO and Project Engineers and Project Managers to market and sell its systems and services. The principal clients of SSI are the United States Army, Air Force and Navy as well as the Department of Justice. SSI has completed more than 60 systems for its clients since mid-1998. The Army accounted for over 50% of its sales for the year 2000.

financial statement for period ending 9/30/2001,
no mention of any losses on 9/11:


the next filing was late (still no mention of any direct loss to the company due to september 11th):

a) The reasons described in reasonable detail in Part III of this form could not be eliminated without unreasonable effort or expense;

III - NARRATIVE State below in reasonable detail the reasons why the Form 10-K, 11-K, 10-Q, N-SAR, or the transition report or portion thereof, could not be filed within the prescribed time period. (Attach Extra Sheets if Needed) On March 23, 2002, the Registrant relocated its corporate headquarters. As a result of the disruption caused by this move, the Registrant is unable to complete its Form 10-KSB by the prescribed due date without unreasonable effort and expense.

(3) Is it anticipated that any significant change in results of operations from the corresponding period for the last fiscal year will be reflected by the earnings statements to be included in the subject report or portion thereof? [X] Yes [ ]No If so, attach an explanation of the anticipated change, both narratively, and quantitatively, and, if appropriate, state the reasons why a reasonable estimate of the results cannot be made. As previously disclosed, the company reported revenue of approximately $7.8 million and a net loss of approximately $3.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2001, as compared with revenue of approximately $18.7 million and net income of approximately $1.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2000. The company also anticipates that its results for the twelve months ended December 31, 2001 will reflect significantly reduced revenue and income (loss) as compared with the twelve months ended December 31, 2000. The company is unable to quantify its year-end results for the reasons set forth in Part III.

the very next filing (still no mention of 9/11, but now - the world trade center is NOT mentioned as one of their clients):

The Company serves more than 50 clients including airports, hospitals, prisons, corporations, utilities, universities and government facilities. These clients include Washington Metropolitan Transit Authority, Auto Fina, AT&T, EDS, Kaiser Permanente and MCI WorldCom, Inc. In addition, the Company also provides the same full range of security systems services to the Government. The Company has an open-ended contract with the General Services Administration (GSA) that allows the government to purchase materials and services from the Company without having to go through a full competition. The Company has completed projects for the U.S. Military and several other government agencies throughout the world. These projects often require state-of-the-art security solutions for classified or high-risk government sites. The clients include the U.S. Army, U.S. Navy, U.S. Air Force, and the Department of Justice.

but the wtc's are listed on that page (as are some eyebrow raising others):

During the past three years the Company has provided services to approximately 90 clients, including airports, hospitals, prisons, corporations, utilities, universities and government facilities. The Company's clients have included the following:

Airports and Aviation Corporations Fresno Airport AT&T United Airlines EDS Washington-Dulles International Airport Gillette Corporation Washington Reagan National Airport Hewlett-Packard Company Yuma International Airport Lazard Freres Seattle-Tacoma Airport Lucent Technologies Dallas Fort Worth Airport Mary Kay Cosmetics MCI WorldCom, Inc. Mobil Corporation NationsBank US WEST Wachovia Bank Alltel Corporation Koch Industries Nokia Fina Oil and Gas Company Kodak Amtrak Hearst Corporation Kaiser Permanente Government Other Los Alamos National Laboratory City of Baltimore Central Sandia National Laboratory Booking and Intake Facility Tennessee Valley Authority Moscow Local Telephone System U.S. Department of Energy New York City's World TradeCenter U.S. Navy Rostelecom U.S. Army Rowan County (N.C.) Prison U.S. Department of Justice Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority

In 2002, sales are expected to remain slow through the first quarter, averaging from $300,000 to $500,000 in monthly in revenue. Based on sales projections, the Company expects revenue to improve in the second quarter to an average of $800,000 per month by the end of the quarter. The Company projects sales per month of $1 million by the end of the third quarter and $1.2 million per month by the end of the fourth quarter. To achieve this improvement in sales, the Company has added several major accounts to replace the accounts that froze their capital budgets. For example, we have added Hewitt and Associates, EMC Corporation, Kaiser Permanente, Veritas Software, Clarion Realty, The Washington Metropolitan Transit Authority, Guinette County in Georgia, CMT Construction, San Jose Construction Group, Devcon Construction and American University. In addition, we have restarted projects with EDS, Trammel Crow, Amtrak and several other prior customers.

finally a mention of 9/11:

The Company is also in the process of adding products for sale to the federal government to its GSA schedule. Since the Company has its headquarters in the Washington, D.C. suburbs, we expect the business with the federal government to grow over the next 12 months. Security funding for federal government buildings has been increased tremendously since September 11, 2001. The federal government recently allocated the fiscal year 2002 budget, but through March had operated under a condition of no new projects since September 2001. Contacts inside the federal government have informed us that the budgets have now been allocated and we expect sales to the federal government to increase..

but nothing directly connecting them to wtc security ON the 11th.

September 15, 2003 marks the end of (all) filings:

The Company recently learned that its principal lender, E. S. Bankest, is terminating its business and is in the process of being liquidated by a court appointed receiver and will no longer honor its financial commitment to the Company, upon which, as noted in previous filings, the Company is dependent. Attempts to negotiate with the receiver some form of continuing agreement and conversion of Bankest's debt to equity have been futile even though Bankest and its nominees own approximately 7 million shares (approximately 45%) of the Company's outstanding shares. Consequently, the Company must cease its operations.

so to recap:

there is nothing directly naming the WTC as a client of stratesec on 9/11,
but there is nothing saying they werent either. i mentioned above several
times that stratesec never directly referrenced any losses due to the events
of 9/11. in comparison, when i was doing some research about the WFC4
building and merril lynch (its occupants), their SEC filings very specifically
mentioned financial losses due to the "terrorism". so i would have expected
to see some sort of similar mention by Stratesec if indeed they sufferred
any losses as a result of the wtc complex being destroyed.

it doesnt mean they didnt have the security contract,
but it does lean in that direction.

also, regarding marvin bush, he is not listed as a director at stratesec
in september of 2001. its tricky cuz of the type of sec filing, where
only some of the initial filings - and then only some of the annual filings are
(apparently) required to list all of the company's directors.

so marvin bush appears at the company's inception as a director and then again in 1999,
but he is NOT listed in the mid-2001 paperwork.

so although bush was once connected to stratesec officially,
by 2001 (9/11 in particular) it appears that he was NO longer connected on paper to stratesec,
and so far i have found no paper to directly connect stratesec to the wtc complex on 9/11.

so the search continues...

but i exhausted all of the available filings at the SEC, so im not sure where to look next.
almost any search for the info leads back to "conspiracy" sites and not something official
enough to establish as fact, that stratesec was THE holder of the security contract of the wtc's on 9/11.
