7. She hasn't called it that, but it seems to amount to the same thing.

I'm thinking of quotes like these (pulled from here):

"There are certain points...where you have your drug related activities combined with money laundering and information laundering, converging with your terrorist activities"

"Intelligence is also gathered by certain semi-legitimate organizations --to be used for their activities. It really does not boil down to countries anymore.... When you have activities involving a lot of money, you have people from different nations involved.... It can be categorized under organized crime, but in a very large scale...."

"...specific information implicating certain high level government and elected officials in criminal activities directly and indirectly related to terrorist money laundering, narcotics, and illegal arms sales."

The night he died, Casolaro was expecting to meet an Arab contact, whose information, he believed, would "bring him the head of the Octopus."

I think what Casolaro was uncovering was this very same international network of intelligence gathering, money laundering, drugs and arms.
