Below is a cut and paste from a statement from the FBI's Director to the House Intelligence
Committee about their budget priorities, including counter-terror ops for the symbiotic link between drug networks and CORRUPT financial systems with local, state and federal officials involved with drug crimes (as per Criminal Division policy statement Kevin Perkins)
Hawaii's Governor does not seem to understand the need to participate in today's information economy by providing leadership with policy directives to address terror crimes in our own systems. Today, on Hawaii Public Radio, Howard Dicus from Pacific Business news announced the consideration of another under water cable from Maui to Honolulu, similar to the one from Long Island to New Jersey.
Given what can be proven about Hawaii's corrupt infrastructure, drug terror, incompetence and malicious contempt, this appears to extend the potential for system terror crimes. As you can see, the State of Hawaii is in denial, pretending not to know that our economy relies on sound legitimate government agencies and information systems that are aligned with regional stability/prosperity.
The sheep and herd public in Hawaii should be afraid.
Transnational and National Criminal Organizations and Enterprises
Transnational/national organized crime is an immediate and increasing concern of the domestic and international law enforcement and intelligence communities. Geopolitical, economic, social, and technological changes within the last two decades have allowed these criminal enterprises to become increasingly active worldwide. Transnational/national organized crime breaks down into six distinct groups: (1) Eurasian organizations that have emerged since the fall of the Soviet Union (including Albanian organized crime); (2) Asian criminal enterprises; (3) traditional organizations such as La Cosa Nostra (LCN) and Italian organized crime; (4) Balkan organized crime; (5) Middle Eastern criminal enterprises; and (6) African criminal enterprises.
Due to the wide range of criminal activity associated with these groups, each distinct organized criminal enterprise adversely impacts the United States in numerous ways. For example, international organized criminals control substantial portions of the global energy and strategic materials markets that are vital to United States national security interests. These activities impede access to strategically vital materials, which has a destabilizing effect on United States geopolitical interests and places United States businesses at a competitive disadvantage in the world marketplace. International organized criminals smuggle people and contraband goods into the United States, seriously compromising United States border security and, at times, national security. Smuggling of contraband/counterfeit goods costs United States businesses billions of dollars annually, and the smuggling of people leads to exploitation that threatens the health and lives of human beings.International organized criminals provide logistical and other support to terrorists, foreign intelligence services, and hostile foreign governments. Each of these groups is either targeting the United States or otherwise acting in a manner adverse to United States interests. International organized criminals use cyberspace to target individuals and United States infrastructure.
