G4S security undercover: London Olympics is wide open to terror or false flag

Friday Drivetime | 22.06.2012 20:50 | Workfare | Analysis | Policing | World

Exclusive interview with investigative journalist Lee Hazledean who is training undercover as a security guard for the London olympics with private security firm G4S. The olympics start in 4 weeks time.

Lee Hazledean is a filmmaker and investigative TV journalist. He has also been involved in major stories on the IRA and how British Army infiltrated the organisation and carried out false flag operations. He has managed to get undercover as part of the security team at the 2012 Olympics with G4S. He has found there is a media black out on all major news outlets to do with the Olympics unless the story is broken in a news paper or foreign news agency it’s unlikely to see the light of day. Security training and officers are so appaling that the safety and security of the London 2012 Olympics are in jeopardy. A few example’s: The security training is woefully inadequate run by a training company called Contemporary International. Lee has been assigned to work in a PSA (Pedestrian Screening Area) the main security for the stadiums. During an exercise he was asked to pose as a would-be terrorist and managed to get knives, guns and IED’s through security screening on every occasion and every exercise. The X-Ray operators have only two days of training, they aren’t trained properly and miss the most obvious prohibited items gun’s, knives, IED’s, ammunition etc. Bag and physical searchers again are missing dangerous weapons, trainees can’t use vital security equipment like the HHMD (Hand Held Metal detectors) they can’t even communicate properly with the public on a basic level. Worryingly the ‘Rapiscan’ walk through metal detectors don’t work properly and aren’t sensitive enough to pick up large knives, ammunition and other metallic threats. He was told that they would be set to go off only after 50 people have walked through to limit queuing time and to get spectators into the venue. So a Terrorist if they basically queued up would probably get through wearing a suicide vest. G4S are dragging the job centres to recruit the long term unemployed for security officers regardless of how suitable they are for the role. In classes there are drug deals going down, people can’t speak any English whatsoever and others who find people with disabilities offensive and are constantly making disabled jokes. People with no security experience are being rushed through training for their SIA licenses. People who haven’t even completed their SIA licenses yet are being picked to be Team Leaders over highly trained security officers, ex soldiers and ex police. Being a team leader is an important role as the first and last line of defence. Lee is concerned that weapons or worse will be getting into the games. However, what’s more disturbing is that uniforms are already going missing or being stolen from the uniform distribution centre/training facility. The training facility is an accurate mock-up of the actual security measures at the Olympic venues. Lee has witnessed several people taking photos on their mobile phones in the training facility and whilst they have been a few people caught by trainers most aren’t noticed. Even when they are caught they are just told to delete the photos and they continue on the training. We know that terrorists take surveillance photos to gain intelligence. Contemporary International claim that they have mobile phone ‘jammers’ in the facility, however trainers admitted to Lee that there were no ‘jammers’ at all, it was a verbal deterrent. The training facility is a non sporting Olympic venue and a terrorist target. Therefore G4S can’t even secure a school let alone the Olympic Venues.
Also there are plans for the evacuation of London G4S are going to be at the forefront, as well as 100,000 troops coming in via Woolwich barracks made up of regular British Forces, American regular army and European troops. Lee was not told why there would be any need for an evacuation of the whole of London, they just said it was to be a “defining moment in the history of London”. This could just be a precaution but the public should be made aware of the foreign invasion which is taking place right now. The troops are being held across London in various barracks once they’ve been through Woolwich barracks. I also have this information confirmed by an army doctor who was shocked at all the foreign troops coming into London. There is also a shipment of what are being described as casket linings, each casket can hold four or five people and 200,000 casket linings have been delivered we believe from America. This could all be precautionary in the event of a major terrorist attack. Also we were shown videos of drones attacking targets in Afghanistan and were told that drones will be patrolling the sky’s over London during the Olympics carrying out surveillance and search and destroy missions if necessary. Lee believes there is something fundamentally wrong with how the security for the Olympics is being implemented by G4S. With exactly 4 weeks to go until the games Lee feels he needs to expose the inadequate security in place in the hope that it can be improved so that the London 2012 Olympics can be a safe environment for spectators and Athletes alike, and not a cause for national and international embarrassment for Great Britain.

keep exposing it!

And proceed to do so on a larger scale! get this information onto something such as RT or PressTV as a platform or some crap TV show which is watched by millions. If we kick up a big enough fuss about it, it may just be a deterrent. I quite sadly however, doubt we'll be able to prevent anything.

If people have short memorys, let me remind you that ON 7/7, THERE WAS ANTI-TERROR 'DRILLS' TAKING PLACE THE EXACT SAME DAY AT THE EXACT SAME LOCATIONS!

A fictional "scenario" of multiple bomb attacks on London's underground took place at exactly the same time as the bomb attack on July 7, 2005.

Peter Power, Managing Director of Visor Consultants, a private firm on contract to the London Metropolitan Police, described in a BBC interview how he had organized and conducted the anti-terror drill, on behalf of an unnamed business client.

The fictional scenario was based on simultaneous bombs going off at exactly the same time at the underground stations where the real attacks were occurring:

POWER: At half past nine this morning we were actually running an exercise for a company of over a thousand people in London based on simultaneous bombs going off precisely at the railway stations where it happened this morning, so I still have the hairs on the back of my neck standing up right now.

HOST: To get this quite straight, you were running an exercise to see how you would cope with this and it happened while you were running the exercise?

POWER: Precisely, and it was about half past nine this morning, we planned this for a company and for obvious reasons I don't want to reveal their name but they're listening and they'll know it. And we had a room full of crisis managers for the first time they'd met and so within five minutes we made a pretty rapid decision that this is the real one and so we went through the correct drills of activating crisis management procedures to jump from slow time to quick time thinking and so on.

hope i'm wrong!

I remember

I remember when that bomb went off at the Atlanta Olympics in 1996. President Clinton ordered martial law over the entire country, all the schools were closed down coast to coast, there were mass arrests of hundreds of thousands later that week, and hardly a day goes by when we don't see another news report of a mass grave in Atlanta being dug up and the bodies of more 1996 arrestees being disinterred. And the official American story, clearly trying to incite an international incident, blamed it on -- an American.

its so true


23.06.2012 04:49

I work in head office at G4S and currently vetting employees for the Olympics... Though I can't seem to find a Lee Hazledean on the system.. strange!


A valiant attempt at complete bullshit

23.06.2012 09:05

The give away is you are trying too hard.

When i read "X-ray machines" and not picking up large knifes........... i stopped reading and just laughed at your bullshit.

dismissive means ignorant

There has been people on youtube uploading them walking through the top of the range naked body scanners, and it is found that if a metal object is placed on the side of one's self, even though the scanners scatter radiation through the body enabling the TSA or security officials to see through every item of clothing a persons wearing, people still managed to smuggle through huge metal objects. Check out this -

That's TSA scanners, but if it's possible there it's possible elsewhere. Stop being so dismissive to others concers you arrogant twits.

laugh when its too late

Independent: Don't listen to what G4S say. Look at what they do

What difference does it make if the men and women in uniform patrolling the world's streets and prison corridors are employed by nation states or private firms? It makes every difference. A for-profit company is not subject to the same processes of accountability and investigation as an army or police force which is meant, at least in theory, to serve the public. Impartial legality is still worth something as an assumed role of the state – and the notion of a private, for-profit police and security force poisons the very idea.
The state still has a legal monopoly on violence, but it is now prepared to auction that monopoly to anyone with a turnover of billions and a jolly branding strategy. The colossal surveillance and security operation turning London into a temporary fortress this summer is chilling enough without the knowledge that state powers are being outsourced to a company whose theme tune features the line: "The enemy prowls, wanting to attack, but we're on to the wall, we've got your back." If that made any sense at all, I doubt it would be more reassuring.

G4S are a PMC in police uniform

Two German MEPs - Franziska Brantner and Michael Theurer - have asked foreign affairs chief Catherine Ashton why she hired security firm G4S to protect EU embassies in Libya when it did not have permission to operate there, in violation of tender rules.

Iv just finished my first day of SIA training with G4S's SIA training company. I found it to be very good!.. After my SIA training im being sent onto a CCTV and First AID course all in aid of working security at the Olympics. The training company are very very strict just like G4S when we vet employees about providing proof of ID's, references, visas ect..

Btw Lee Hazledean if you are actually an employed journalist you wouldn't even of been considered hiring! We check every nuk and cranny even if you don't tell us everything in your application!


Some evidence would be nice

23.06.2012 18:07

Strange how there isn't any in this day age of hi-tech gadgets

oh well. must be full of shit

making name for self?

Very good

23.06.2012 20:21

Well done indymedia UK. That was some insane conspiracy theorist fiction. My favourite bit was the 200,000 body bags hahahaha.Someone please tell the author of this fiction that scripts for US drama '24' should be sent to Fox TV.


funny how

23.06.2012 20:27

Funny how this so called investigative reporter doesn't even show up on google. Mot a mention of him or his make believe IRA investigation anywhere online. In fact the only results that google gives are to this site. Please try and filter out these comspiracy nutters in future.

a nun

Funny ha ha

23.06.2012 23:34

"Please try and filter out these comspiracy nutters in future."

Yeah, as another troll I agree. Anything that my walnut of a brain can't understand MUST be a conspiracy theory. That includes the Times crossword!!!

Yes, that's right, the Times crossword is a CONSPIRACY THEORY.

Troll Encap.

who would have guessed?

G4S Israeli subsidiary, Hashmira, is involved in a large number of projects beyond the Green Line in illegally occupied Palestine.

G4S is running security at the Olympics ... an Olympics that even high ranking government officials are muttering about in public concerning the possibility of large scale attacks (read: false flag attacks).

Hitler paraphrase: 'just tell them that they are under attack and they will agree to give up their freedoms for security[sic]'

G4S desires privatising the UK police force:

Terror drills, body bags, alien invasion ... the internet is alive with such talk (when isn't it?).

You have to sift through the chaff to get to the wheat.

All in all, such a possibility would be in keeping with the modus operandi of the past .. from the reichstag, through the gulf of tonkin ... 911 anyone?

August 4th is the most prominent and resonant date ... still, Cassandra will never be happy.

not me


24.06.2012 11:39

As in, iPig? Renta-pig that is! GTFO! Hoax!


yes you do

24.06.2012 13:08

you obviously do give a f### because you are here claiming falsely that you don't. perhaps this is not the place for you to sort out your complex issues ... it's only information after all, you can choose to ignore or engage ... don't start telling the rest of us what we have to do, you don't have the power to enforce nor the ability (it seems) to influence


Blub Blub

24.06.2012 15:17

>>>don't start telling the rest of us what we have to do

From a G4S employee no less!

How about - "Fuck off and Die you cunt!"



24.06.2012 16:13

Who cares what you think? No one!
You are nothing. Your viewpoint doesn't count for anything!! lol!


@ trolls

25.06.2012 21:04

oh the sweet smell of burning G4S vans, the sweet smell of burning tyres and burning van. The lovely feeling of adrenalin when the 'whoosh' of the molotov causes the G4S van to burn. oh how i savour that smell. that smell of the fire...the fire of rebelliousness, coming your way, G4S, always coming your way.

solidarity to those that act against G4S.

Ben Fellows – although he has been diagnosed with pericarditis (a serious heart condition) and fibromyalgia (a serious pain condition for which he takes pharmaceutical heroin) is going to fly a powered paraglider or paramotor across Russia, into Siberia and to the Bering Straits, then across the Bering Sea to Alaska.
Unfortunately he claims he is going to raise money for Leonard Cheshire Disability, one of the Work Programme subcontractors, chairman banker Ilyas Khan.
