The Missing Link:
SolarWinds ORION Software interfaces with SENTINEL,
the FBI system developed and created by Ghislaine Maxwell’s sister and her company Chilead.
As you can see there was a huge find found in the middle of the night while you were sleeping.
The OIG did a report on this going back to 2012 and beyond. You can read that here: https://oig.justice.gov/reports/2012/a1238.pdf
The real goods start on page 13-14 if you want to skip through a bit.This is a 44 page PDF.
Pull your socks up tight or they might blow off.
I will leave you a snippet from the pages 13-14 to give you an idea here:
We reviewed documentation provided by the FBI that described the deleted requirements and the justification for the deletion. The documentation included the ESC meeting minutes, which recorded the ESC’s approval of the changes to the SRS and the Request for Changes for modifications of the SRS. The deleted requirements were approved by Senior FBI Leadership and provided a justification for their removal. However, for a majority of cases the documentation did not include an assessment of the cost of adding, deleting or modifying the requirements. We believe an assessment is vital for updating the budget baseline against which Sentinel’s cost performance is measured and capturing cost savings and increases associated with deleting and adding a requirement.18 For example, as mentioned above, the FBI eliminated all 15 SRS requirements in the Crisis Management functional area because the ORION system, which was deployed in July 2008, would interface with Sentinel. The FBI decided it was not necessary or cost effective for Sentinel to replicate ORION’s functionality.19 However, in May 2012, the FBI awarded a $19 million contract to operate and maintain ORION for 8 years. The FBI’s CTO told us that future versions of Sentinel may replace ORION. We are concerned that costs originally intended to be borne by Sentinel were transferred to ORION and that future Sentinel funding will be used to replace ORION.
Forty-four of the 172 deleted requirements were transferred to the other FBI IT systems, including: ORION: Fifteen requirements related to crisis management were deleted because they duplicated functions provided by ORION. Data Integration and Visualization System (DIVS): Ten requirements related to Sentinel’s search capabilities were deleted because they overlapped with DIVS. Deployed in 2011, DIVS is a search tool capable of searching the FBI’s most-used databases. Case Document Access Review: Five requirements related to the capability of Special Agents to monitor who views the documents within their cases were deleted because Sentinel did not subsume the Case Document Access Review.20 Delta: Six requirements were deleted because Delta subsumed two legacy human intelligence systems that were originally to be subsumed by Sentinel. Delta is a confidential human source management system that provides FBI agents and intelligence analysts a uniform means of handling the administrative aspect of maintaining human sources.
The amount of money that was put into this system is also staggering.
If you are a reader and truly enjoy official documents, this one will not disappoint. The fact that this all connects back to Maxwells Sister and her program is a bit mind blowing in itself.
