Conflicting Goals and Objectives
Fusion Centers - Part 4
Following publication of the PCCIP report titled, Critical Foundations: Protecting America's Infrastructures, President Clinton issued two Presidential Decision Directives: PDD-62 and PDD-63 to begin implementation of the Commission's recommendations. PDD-62 titled Combating Terrorism was classified but a summary Fact Sheet was available. PDD-63 Protecting America's Critical Infrastructure was not classified. Both Directives were signed on May 22, 1998.
The following is an excerpt from the PDD-62 Fact Sheet:
Since he took office, President Clinton has made the fight against terrorism a top national security objective... America's unrivaled military superiority means that potential enemies -- whether nations or terrorist groups -- that choose to attack us will be more likely to resort to terror instead of conventional military assault. Moreover, easier access to sophisticated technology means that the destructive power available to terrorists is greater than ever. Adversaries may thus be tempted to use unconventional tools, such as weapons of mass destruction, to target our cities and disrupt the operations of our government. They may try to attack our economy and critical infrastructure using advanced computer technology.
...This Directive creates a new and more systematic approach to fighting the terrorist threat of the next century. It reinforces the mission of the many U.S. agencies charged with roles in defeating terrorism; it also codifies and clarifies their activities in the wide range of U.S. counter-terrorism programs, from apprehension and prosecution of terrorists to increasing transportation security, enhancing response capabilities and protecting the computer-based systems that lie at the heart of America's economy. The Directive will help achieve the President's goal of ensuring that we meet the threat of terrorism in the 21st century with the same rigor that we have met military threats in this century. [Obama: Civilian National Security Force]
Excerpts from PDD-63 and the PDD-63 Fact Sheet
Critical infrastructures are those physical and cyber-based systems essential to the minimum operations of the economy and government. They include, but are not limited to, telecommunications, energy, banking and finance, transportation, water systems and emergency services, both governmental and private.
For each of the major sectors of our economy that are vulnerable to infrastructure attack, the Federal Government will appoint from a designated Lead Agency a senior officer of that agency as the Sector Liaison Official to work with the private sector. Sector Liaison Officials, after discussions and coordination with private sector entities of their infrastructure sector, will identify a private sector or counterpart (Sector Coordinator) to represent their sector.
Together these two individuals and the departments and corporations they represent shall contribute to a sectoral National Infrastructure Assurance Plan by:
- assessing the vulnerabilities of the sector to cyber or physical attacks;
- recommending a plan to eliminate significant vulnerabilities;
- proposing a system for identifying and preventing attempted major attacks;
- developing a plan for alerting, containing and rebuffing an attack in progress and then, in coordination with FEMA as appropriate, rapidly reconstituting minimum essential capabilities in the aftermath of an attack.
During the preparation of the sectoral plans, the National Coordinator (see section VI), in conjunction with the Lead Agency Sector Liaison Officials and a representative from the National Economic Council, shall ensure their overall coordination and the integration of the various sectoral plans, with a particular focus on interdependencies.
Guidelines - excerpts
The incentives that the market provides
are the first choice for addressing the problem of critical infrastructure
protection; regulation will be used only in the face of a material failure
of the market to protect the health, safety or well-being of the American
people. In such cases, agencies shall identify and assess available
alternatives to direct regulation, including providing economic incentives
to encourage the desired behavior, providing information upon which choices
can be made by the private sector. These incentives, along with other
action, shall be designed to help harness the latest technologies, bring
about global solutions to international problems, and enable private sector
owners and operators to achieve and maintain the maximum feasible security.
The full authorities, capabilities and
resources of the government, including law enforcement, regulation, foreign
intelligence and defense preparedness shall be available, as appropriate, to
ensure that critical infrastructure protection is achieved and maintained.
The Federal Government shall, through
its research, development and procurement, encourage the introduction of
increasingly capable methods of infrastructure protection.
Close cooperation and coordination with state and local governments and first responders is essential for a robust and flexible infrastructure protection program. All critical infrastructure protection plans and action shall take into consideration the needs, activities and responsibilities of state and local governments and first responders.
a National Coordinator whose scope will include not only critical
infrastructure but also foreign terrorism and threats of domestic
mass destruction (including biological weapons) because attacks on
the US may not come labeled in neat jurisdictional boxes;
The National Infrastructure Protection Center (NIPC) at the FBI which
will fuse representatives from FBI, DOD, USSS, Energy,
Transportation, the Intelligence Community, and the private sector
in an unprecedented attempt at information sharing among agencies
in collaboration with the private sector. The NIPC will also
provide the principal means of facilitating and coordinating the
Federal Government's response to an incident, mitigating attacks,
investigating threats and monitoring reconstitution efforts;
Information Sharing and Analysis Centers (ISACs) are encouraged to be
set up by the private sector in cooperation with the Federal
government and modeled on the Centers for Disease Control and
A National Infrastructure Assurance Council drawn from private sector
leaders and state/local officials to provide guidance to the policy
formulation of a National Plan;
The Critical Infrastructure Assurance Office will provide support to
the National Coordinator's work with government agencies and the
private sector in developing a national plan. The office will also
help coordinate a national education and awareness program, and
legislative and public affairs.
Lead Agencies for Sector Liaison:
Commerce Information and communications
Treasury Banking and finance
EPA Water supply
Highways (including trucking and intelligent transportation systems)
Justice/FBI Emergency law enforcement services
FEMA Emergency fire service
Continuity of government services
HHS Public health services, including prevention, surveillance, laboratory services and
personal health services
Energy Electric power
Oil and gas production and storage
Lead Agencies for Special Functions:
Justice/FBI Law enforcement and internal security
CIA Foreign intelligence
State Foreign affairs
Defense National defense
In addition, OSTP shall be responsible for coordinating research and development agendas and programs for the government through the National Science and Technology Council. Furthermore, while Commerce is the lead agency for information and communication, the Department of Defense will retain its Executive Agent responsibilities for the National Communications System and support of the President's National Security Telecommunications Advisory Committee.
That was then.... this is now:
Homescam Security Presidential Directive 7 (HSPD-7)
Here it is - the dark fascist
underbelly complete with it's own Nazi enforcers:
Here are the sector-specific plans
This is from the energy-specific plan:
In its role as the lead Sector-Specific Agency for the Energy Sector, the Department of Energy has worked closely with dozens of government and industry partners to prepare this updated 2010 Energy Sector-Specific Plan (SSP). Much of that work was conducted through the two Energy Sector Coordinating Councils (SCCs) and the Energy Government Coordinating Council (GCC). The Electricity SCC and the Oil and Natural Gas SCC comprise the Energy SCC and represent the interests of their respective industries. The Energy GCC represents all levels of government – Federal, State, local, territorial, and tribal – that are concerned with the Energy Sector.
Perhaps the most valuable aspect of the SSP development process has been the ongoing development of a trusted relationship and true partnership between government and industry. This partnership has enabled the development of a unified vision for the sector, and it will continue to facilitate the national effort to implement the sector’s critical infrastructure and key resources (CIKR) protective programs....
Have a great day,
May 16, 2013
Corporations have a goal to make money. Government has a goal to control. The partnership between corporations and government establishes conflicting goals whereby government power is used for the corporations to make money. The smart grid and smart meters are perfect examples. They intend to use the monopoly power of a critical resources - electricity - to rob and control the activities of "customers". They used the power of government to force the installation of smart meters for that purpose.
The "partnership" between government and
corporations is fascism. It makes you a captive "customer". A
captive customer is a slave and they are robbing you blind to ensure that you
stay that way.
Notice that 2 of the 3 names on this report AREN'T American:
The fraud of the whole scheme of "Homeland Security" is revealed in immigration, visa and foreign direct investment policies. If you are interested in security, you don't invite the psychopath to dinner. At least not in the real world.
