Sampling of Letters Showing Concern—Or
The Standard Cover-Up (Obstruction of Justice)

The following are a sampling of letters received by the corruption-fighter, Captain Rodney Stich, in response to his letters reporting the corruption to members of Congress who had a moral and legal responsibility to receive the information. This sampling of responses should be coordinated with the list of letters and faxes sent to members of Congress, and comparing the serious charges and deaths with the absence of responses and those partial responses.

The charges were so serious, and the consequences, if true, were of such catastrophic consequences, that failure to act would be  not only irresponsible, but under criminal statutes, obstruction of justice.

The federal crime reporting statute, Title 18 U.S.C. § 4, provides that anyone knowing of a federal crime must report it to a federal judge or other federal official. A member of Congress would be included in that. And any government official being offered information or evidence of a federal crime must receive that information and insure that it is being property investigated.

When the ripple effects, the Butterfly Effects, are recognized, and the details of the corruption understood, it can then be seen that the ripple effects of what Stich sought to correct were the same culture that created the conditions that made it simple for terrorists to hijack four airliners on 9/11.

In a few cases, the members of Congress admitted the gravity of the charges. None ever allowed Captain Stich  to provide details that were necessary to support the charges.

Most engaged in the standard obfuscation, plausible denial, willful ignorance, truth evasion, willful ignorance, that has been standard for decades in the oligarchy of the U.S. government. Sampling of letters that Stich sent to members of Congress.

2001:  Series of al Qaeda successes "DOJ and FAA

Other Corruption-Enabled Terrorist Successes Occurring

The worsening corruption, and the culture of cover-up, enabled the terrorist  successes to continue: World Trade Center bombing; bombing of U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, downing of TWA Flight 800, and the easily preventable horrific hijackings of four U.S. airliners—despite FBI personnel in the New York City offices having advance information. Despite the horrors enabled by the repeatedly reported corruption, every check and balance, including the media, whose prior cover-ups enabled the worsening consequences, had to remain silent and continue the status quo. Even most of the American public, obsessed with trivia, did not react.

2002: (Continuing cover-ups continued the corruption and led to two wars)


2005: Nothing changed in America's culture of cover-ups and protecting the government oligarchy

For many years as the corruption-enabling disasters became worse, most of the recipients of the letters and faxes refused to respond, which enabled them to later deny knowing of the serious matters.

  • Sen. Larry Craig, Feb. 24, 1995.

Proxmire stated, "I am sorry to say that after extensive research I have failed to find evidence  which  would warrant my pursuing further your grievance with the Federal Aviation Administration." His reference to "grievance" when Stich was reporting corrupt and criminal misconduct, and his cover-up, enabled the corruption to continue, along with the resulting corruption-enabled aviation  disasters and deaths.

  • Sen. William Proxmire, July 7, 1967. Referring to the recent series of deadly airline disasters occurring in Stich's immediate area of official responsibility, and Stich's offer to provide evidence of corruption that enabled them to occur, Sen.

[In 1987, as the corruption and the consequences spread to other areas, Department of Justice personnel charged Captain Stich with criminal contempt of court for having filed a federal action to report and halt the continuing harm from the corruption. The filing was in accordance with the federal crime reporting statute, Title 18 U.S.C. § 4. Federal judges and Department of Justice personnel joined forces to block the reports and repeatedly labeled Captain Stich as engaging in frivolous filings (for attempting to halt the horrendous consequences).

1968:  Aviation disasters from the reported corruption were continuing to occur:


  • Sen. Alan Cranston, Oct 8, 1970. "I would  be happy to assist you in investigating this situation, ... If you care to send a more general letter on the subject and can make it possible for me to make it known why I am making inquiries, I shall check with the FAA right away."

  • Rep. Julian Dixon, Aug. 31, 1988.

  • Rep. William Gray, III, August 31, 1988. He was on the committee with oversight on the matters brought to his attention by Captain Rodney Stich.

  • Rep. Carlos Moorhead, Sept 31, 1988, member of the committees on the courts, civil liberties, and the administration of justice. The serious violations against Stich were by federal judges, involved the corrupt administration of justice, and unprecedented civil rights violations against the corruption fighter. Despite his moral and legal responsibilities, he violated them by forwarding the letter sent by Stich to Chairman Rodino for his consideration. That was the end of that.

  • From Rep. Edwards, Sep. 1, 1988. His do-nothing response was to forward the information on serious corruption in government to Rep. George Miller, in whose district Stich resided. Corruption subverting the government of the United States was not a local matter, but a moral and legal responsibility of any member of Congress.;

  • Rep. Moorhead, Sept. 1, 1988

  • Sen. Inouye and Cummisky, Oct 14, 1988. In response to the information on serious misconduct by  federal judges, instead of meeting his moral and legal responsibility, he wrote: "As a matter of Senate courtesy, your petition has been referred to Senator Alan Cranston for appropriate action."

  • Sen. Biden, Oct. 24, 1988, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. When presented with the information on criminal misuse of the federal courts by federal judges—a major and subversive conduct in his area of responsibility—Sen. Biden violated his moral and legal responsibility, including cover-up that would enabled the continuation of grave harm to national security, and referred the matter to Representative Peter Rodino.

  • U.S. Department of Justice, Nov. 16, 1988. In response to criminal misuse of judicial positions by federal judges that also constituted record-setting civil rights violations, the Public Integrity Section referred to Stich reports as a Petition for Impeachment and stated in part: " The Public Integrity Section is part of the Justice Department's Criminal Division and is responsible for investigating and prosecuting federal criminal violations committed by public officials. ... We thank you for bringing this matter to our attention, but regret that we are unable to be of assistance." 


  • Sen. Sam Nunn, April 2, 1990. His response: "I regret that a full legislative agenda and a heavy influx of mail prevented my responding to you earlier. I appreciate you taking the time to advise me of your concerns. Your thoughts are helpful to me and my staff." [Stich wasn't providing thoughts; he was providing insider information on such matters as ongoing corrupt and criminal misconduct in key government positions that had already enabled years of aviation disasters and were starting to enable a series of terrorist successes, besides subverting major government entities.] 

  • Sen. Howell Heflin, May 31, 1990, "I appreciate your advising  me of your views on the issue of airline safety and appreciate your taking the time to make your book available to me and my staff."

  • Sen. Alan Cranston, April 8, 1991. In response to Stich's details about criminal misuse of judicial positions by federal judges, Cranston referred to totally unrelated matters such as the complexity of the legal system; the importance of brining criminals to trial, and whether judges have the power to raise taxes. This is called, obstruction of justice, allowing the corruption to continue that were continuing to play enabling roles in a series of terrorist successes.
