I will try to cite all reference documents, web sites, etc. ASAP. I have bookmarked every site and all government documentation I have found and will list them soon.
Sometimes I think the chaotic tourist industry is a smoke screen for the US military machine. As if the whole place is a strategic desirability. In 2003, I decided I was well enough to venture up to Alaska for the construction field season. While I was there I learned that nuclear grade concrete missile launching sites were being built around Bristol Bay. Several civil inspectors were sent out there by the engineering consultant I was working for. This was at a time when the US was demanding that the entire world disarm. I thought about Kauai then. During the 60s the word was that in the event of nuclear war, Kauai would be the first place taken out. From about 13 years old I managed to skip all the field trips to the military installations. It seemed like a brain washing kind of thing to me.
Note: Preliminary research indicates that the University of Hawaii went to Alaska to consult on the use of deadly herbicide applications on a military fuel pipeline near Tok, Alaska. Many Alaska Natives are part of a cancer cluster around Tok. Homes were built In the right of way after the pipeline was abandoned.
Future research: Who is donating to the University of Hawaii?
