50 Years and Continuing Catastrophic Events Enabled by Corruption, Cover-Ups, And Attacks on a Corruption-Fighter This mini-documentary addresses 50 years of catastrophic events resulting from heavily documented corrupt or criminal acts by people in key and powerful positions in the U.S. government. It covers to period from the 1950s to September 11, 2001, and beyond. Much of the information is based upon the personal observations of key insiders. They include a veteran corruption-in government-fighter, Captain Rodney Stich, and his sources. His unusual background and years of credibility provides additional support to the enormous amount of federal and other documents cited here. His crusader efforts were motivated from the attacks directed at him as he was attempting to carry out an unprecedented and official life-and-death-assignment as a federal airline safety inspector during a series of world-record airline disasters. Two series of catastrophic events are presented here, covering the 50-year period, along with the enabling corruption in the mostly unrecognized corrupt oligarchy group in the United States. First Series of Corruption-Enabled Catastrophic Events: Series of World-Record Airline Disasters Years of horrific airline disasters from the 1950s to about the 1980s, due to misconduct at a politically-powerful airline and within the federal agency responsible for airline safety, known for many years as the "tombstone agency," in recognition of the many tombstones resulting from the internal politics, incompetence, and documented corruption. One sampling can be found at www.wikileaksusa.org/nyc_world_record_air_disasters.html. Second Series of Corruption-Enabled Catastrophic Events: Series of Terrorist Successes Against U.S. Targets The second and latest consequences of the corruption in covert and overt positions in the U.S. government addresses the corrupt conduct that generated the hatred and enabled the preventable series of worsening terrorist successes; one of the worst consequences occurring on September 11, 2001. During the 1960s Through 9/11 Sampling of Corruption-Enabled Catastrophic Events Starting in the 1950s and continuing for many years, a politically-powerful airline experienced a world-record series of horrific airline crashes and many near crashes (and some non-fatal), most due to pilot error, indicating serious problems at the airline's training facilities at Denver. Serious safety problems were known to exist and reported, and remained uncorrected by the powerful political management at the Federal Aviation Agency, known at this time by knowledgeable insiders as "the tombstone agency," because of the many tombstones resulting from the politics, incompetence, and corruption that existed. Two reports of the general problems at United Airlines reflected what competent FAA inspectors had found concerning the airline corporation's money-saving practices that violated federal regulations and digressed from industry practices: September 23, 1960. October 17, 1960. The consequences of those practices, that continued for years, included a world-record airline disaster occurring shortly thereafter: a United Airlines DC-8 that plunged into the Brooklyn section of New York City. That crash as due to awesome pilot error that reflected the corrupt acts at the airline. Grieving witness. The Little Boy who survived—for a few yours. Horrific as was the New York City scene, equally horrific consequences were occurring on Staten Island. Before plunging into New York City, the United Airlines aircraft crashed into a TWA Constellation, The TWA aircraft broke apart in midair, causing passengers and crew members to be ejected from the aircraft. Parts of bodies were hanging from tree limbs and scattered on the ground. Unimaginable were the horrors experienced by the people falling to their deaths. Despite the many horrific deaths arising from the corrupt safety practices, the information was withheld from the people; the same money-saving practices continued, and the primary FAA inspector complaining about the unsafe violations of mandatory safety practices was transferred. Chapter from the book, History of Aviation Disasters: 1950 to 9/11, available for down loading at www.wikileaksusa.org/ Politics and Cover-Ups Enabled the Money-Saving Deadly Consequences to Continue Another United Airlines crashes quickly followed; at Denver. Passengers were cremated inside the aircraft, the deaths due to several of the money-saving practices at that airline corporation. Life-and-Death Assignment: Compounded by Attacks, Crashes, and More Deaths A safety-oriented group in the Los Angeles Regional Offices of the highly political FAA gave a highly experienced federal airline safety inspector, Captain Rodney Stich, the unprecedented and official life-and-death-assignment to transfer from Los Angeles to the airline's training base at Denver, and halt the corrupt and deadly safety practices at that politically-powerful airline. Attacked While In Life-and-Death Assignment— Enabling Additional Horrific Crashes As that inspector discovered, reported, and attempted to halt the unprecedented series of corrupt practices at that airline, the political power of the FAA, starting with the FAA Administrator in Washington, was used in unprecedented attacks upon the federal airline safety inspector. The criminal offense of attacking a federal agent to prevent him from carrying out the life-and-death assignment was made worse as three additional horrific airline disasters occurred. Each was due to the safety problems he discovered and tried to correct. Two of the crashes, art United Airlines, were enabled by the known aviation safety problems—including the criminal act of falsifying government-required records, falsely stating that mandatory pilot training and competency checks had been performed. The attacks was known to Department of Justice personnel, who refused to act.. Instead, they protected the perpetrators while the deadly consequences were occurring.

In the 1980s, as the corruption-fighter's crusading activities via not-for-profit books, hundreds of radio and television appearances, speaking tours, made his efforts known, he began being contacted by an increasing number of key insiders formerly in covert and law enforcement operations. Some were in secret segments of highly publicized CIA operations. Former heads of secret CIA airlines and secret CIA financial corporations. They detailed corrupt and criminal activities that were directly or indirectly inflicting great harm throughout the world, and in the United States. Some of the information Stich was receiving related to terrorist activities that were not even known to the series of agencies such as the NSA. To be sure that the advance information was not covered up as in the past, Stich again used the mandatory requirements of the federal crime reporting statute, Title 18 U.S.C. § 4, to report the newly learned areas of corrupt conduct, and included the corrupt conduct previously blocked from being reported. That is when a powerful force in government started a sham lawsuit in the California courts that went out of control, exposing an even more serious matter affecting the honesty of the people in primary control of the federal government, totally unknown to the American people. Reporting Corruption That Had Expanded Into Enabling a Series of Terrorist Successes: Suffering the Consequences Fortified with the addition information provided by his sources, the corruption-fighter filed a federal action in the federal courts at Sacramento, California, under the mandatory crime reporting requirements of federal crime reporting statute, Title 18 U.S.C. § 4. Federal judges, and any other federal official, have a mandatory duty to receive information of a federal crime from anyone who offers it. Joint DOJ Personnel/Federal Judges Criminal Misuse of Government Positions for Reporting Corrupt Acts of Powerful Oligarchy Upon filing the action in the federal courts at Sacramento, federal judges and Department of Justice personnel charged Stich with criminal contempt of court. To succeed with that preposterous charge, the constitutional right to a jury trial was denied to him. The Sacramento attorney, Joel Pegg, to whom Stich had given $20,000 to defend against the charge, promptly sabotaged Stich's defenses and sided with the prosecutor, David Levi (who was later promoted to federal judge at Sacramento). After California judges tied up his funds, two court-appointed attorneys were appointed, who also sabotaged Stich's defenses. While there events were ongoing, a series of corruption-enabled terrorist events were starting. Department of Justice personnel at that time were involved in several decades of murders with brutal mob figures, which would have enabling links to what later occurred on a fateful day in September 2001. (A key figure in that scandal later provide Stich with extremely explosive information.) Stich filed appeals with the same federal appeal judges at San Francisco that had denied relief when he was blocked from reporting the offenses relating to the aviation disasters. The same tactics were used to support the criminal contempt of court charges. Judge Anthony Kennedy was one of the judges involved in the tactics. Coup de grâce: Seizing Life Assets: Next DOJ and Judicial Tactics Partly while in prison, Department of Justice personnel and federal judges gave Stich the Coup de grâce, corruptly seizing Stich's $10 million in real estate assets that funded his corruption fighter crusade. That converted him from a multi-millionaire to a state of poverty art the age of 70. His attempts to obtain relief from the court of appeal judges at Sacramento continued to be futile. The same aiding and abetting of these acts occurred as Supreme Court Justices allowed the high-level crimes to continue, enabling the corrupt culture to continue spreading throughout government, as well as the consequences. Quitting Was Not an Option As Corruption-Enabled Consequences Worsened Just as doing nothing was not an option as the FAA corruption was approved in the 1960s, quitting was not an option for Stich as the wealth of insider information revealed how the continuing corruption, especially of personnel in the Department of Justice, helped by federal judges, became major enablers. A sampling of Stich's legal efforts n the 1990s follows: Supreme Court Justices Names as Defendants The complicity in these events by the Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court caused Captain Stich to file a lawsuit against the Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court (Oct 20, 1989, Nr. 89-2941) in the federal courts in the District of Columbia. The purpose of the lawsuit was to focus public attention on the charges in that lawsuit and alert the public to the serious misconduct in powerful government institutions. That lawsuit was not dismissed as soon as it was filed. Details at www.wikileaksusa.org/lawsuit_against_supreme_court_justices.html. Federal Judges Liable for Criminal Prosecutions—and Also Subject to DOJ Retaliation Criminal statutes do not provide immunity against the criminal acts of any government personnel, and especially those entrusted to prevent such crimes: personnel in the U.S. Department of Justice, federal judges, and Supreme Court Justices. They are virtually never prosecuted unless their conduct generate a backlash against Department of Justice personnel (as occurred with two federal judges, Robert Aguilar, in San Jose, because of his criticism of DOJ conduct); and Harry Claiborne in Las Vegas. Despite the public interest in such a lawsuit, media personnel and media corporations, that had for decades kept information on hardcore criminality by high government personnel from the public—continue with keeping the lawsuit from the public. Operation Mockingbird came into play here. Unprecedented In Supreme Court History: Apology To Stich from Supreme Court Justice Byron White Before the lawsuit naming the Supreme Court Justices was dismissed, the serious terrorist events and information provided to Stich caused him to send a 60-page Emergency Petition to U.S. Supreme Court Justice Byron White. Justice White had a reputation for a high level of integrity and his unprecedented response indicated his concern for the charges made in that Emergency Petition. . Justice White's unprecedented personal response, dated October 28, 1991, reflected his concern, as he apologized in writing for not being able—as single Justice—to help. It was surely the first time in the history of the U.S. Supreme Court that one of the Justices, informed of crimes against the United States, resulting in great tragedies and threatening the security of the nation, put in words his concern and inability to help in such important matters. What powerful force kept him from acting on such serious nation-affecting matters? That response strongly suggested a powerful force existed that required the U.S. Supreme Court Justices to become complicit in criminal activities that had, and would continue to have, catastrophic consequences. Shortly after that October 1991 letter, Justice White retired, in early 1993. He died on April 16, 2002. It is possible that Justice White did was he did because both he and Stich were in the U.S. Navy during World War II, in the Pacific, Stich as a prestigious Naval Aviator and prestigious Patrol Plane Commander. Bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 Over Lockerbie: Retaliation for Another Murderous U.S. Action— Combined with DOJ Personnel Corruption While the corruption-fighter was under attacks by DOJ personnel and federal judges, terrorist attacks were starting. The widespread secrecy concerning the bombing and persecution involving the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie on December 21, 1988. FBI-DOJ personnel involved in the prosecution involving the bombing of Pan Am Flight103 over Lockerbie, that included covering up and protecting the actual guilty parties and planting sham evidence to support charging two innocent Libyans and blaming Libya. The bombing was in retaliation for the irresponsible shooting down of an Iranian airliner by the commander of a small U.S. Navy ship, killing 290 people. The Iranian airliner was climbing to cruise altitude on a civil airway after departing Abadan, Iran. (Captain Rodney Stich had taken off many times from that same aire-0port on the same civil airways, carrying Muslim pilgrims to the holy cities of Mecca and Medina.) See similar posting at DOJ corruption related to the Pan Am Flight 103 Lockerbie bombing. (See book, History of Aviation Disasters: 1950 to 9/11.) Joint DOJ-Mobster Murders Occurring While DOJ-Personnel-Federal Judges Jointly Attacked the Corrupt Conduct Also occurring while DOJ personnel and federal judges were using their government positions in reverse, to inflict great personal and financial harm upon the corruption-fighter to silence him, DOJ personnel in the Boston and New York city offices were engaging in murders and other crimes with brutal mobsters. Those murders played a key role in the deep sixing of advance information on planned terrorist attacks by the al Qaeda group. This is the environment in which the corruption-fighter was attempting to halt the corrupt activities and resulting tragedies. World Trade Center Bombing: Start of al Qaeda Retaliation The corrupt conduct of FBI personnel that enabled the World Trade Center bombing to occur. The success of the terrorists was due to a combination of FBI personnel incompetence and retaliation against a female FBI agent who, with her source in the al Qaeda group, provided advance information of the planned bombing, the name of some of the people constructing the bomb, and the Jersey City self-storage location where the bomb was being fabricated. See the book, Crimes of the FBI-DOJ, Mafia, and al Qaeda. FBI-DOJ personnel were too involved in years of murders of U.S. citizens with organized crime and Mafia figures to pay information to reliable sources proving information on the planned bombing; the names and locations of the al Qaeda bombers; the public storage facility in Jersey City where the bomb was being assembled. Bombings of U.S. Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania The corruption of high-level personnel that enabled the successful al Qaeda bombings of U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, despite advance notice to FBI agents by a mole inside the al Qaeda cell. Downing of TWA Flight 800 The downing of TWA Flight 800, shortly after takeoff from New York's JFK Airport, and massive cover-ups by personnel in the U.S. Department of Justice, the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), and the political National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB). Simultaneous Hijackings of Four U.S. Airliners The easily preventable and advance notice of the 9/11 hijackings of four U.S. airliners, on September 11, 2001.which included covering up for the corruption in the FAA, and the criminal deep-sixing of advance information by high-level Department of Justice personnel of the intended hijackings. These few examples of the horrors associated with airline disasters enabled to occur by documented corruption withheld from the American people. The standard culture of cover-ups in the United States enabled the corruption, cover-ups, to mutate into different areas. In the aviation area, although the continuing series of airline disasters eventually came to a halt for other reasons, the culture continued, and enabled to occur a number of easily preventable airline disasters. The inbred culture created the conditions that enabled four groups of terrorists to easily hijack four airliners within a few hours of each other and kill nearly 3,000 people. One of Over 200 Victims Choosing This Way to Die— Made Possible by Many Enablers in United States The Downing of American Airlines Flight 587 American Airlines Flight 587 downed during initial departure from New York City on November 12, 2001, with the suspicious and illegal cover-ups by the political NTSB board members. Death toll was 260 in the aircraft and five on the ground. Post-9/11 Brutalities Ordered by U.S. Politicians Guaranteed Grave Blowback Upon American People Covert operations ordered by White House p0oliticians, using thousands of trained and armed mercenaries, inflicted five decades of humanitarian tragedies upon innocent people, stating with the Middle East destabilization in 1953. Jumping far ahead, the U.S. invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq after the September 11, 2001, horrors, the corrupt actions ordered by President George Bush (Jr.) and his many shills, including Vice-President Dick Cheney, and their shills, resulted in millions of deaths. Iraq, for instance, had no role in the al Qaeda attacks and was a nation where terrorists would not be tolerated. Afghanistan, had no knowledge of the planned attacks, and even offered to turn the small al Qaeda group over to a third nation for trial. The primary enablers of the 9/11 attacks were in the United States. The most direct enablers and their criminal acts were personnel in the U.S. Department of Justice that had been given advance notice of the planned al Qaeda attacks and then deep-sixed the information because using it would expose years of murders by FBI-DOJ personnel in the New York City offices. See also, Deep-sixing advance information of al Qaeda attacks provided by a mole inside an al Qaeda cell to prevent public discovery of FBI-DOJ murders in the New York City offices, which blocked preventative measures to be taken. The forewarned terrorist attacks upon U.S. targets then occurred, with the loss of almost 4,000 lives. Details in the books, Crimes of the FBI-DOJ, Mafia, and al Qaeda; Terrorism and Deadliest Enabling Scandals of 21st Century; and History of Aviation Disasters: 1950 to 9/11. For a sampling of the results of the invasions, of the enablers, and especially high officials in the highest law enforcement department of the U.S. government: Thousands of casualties, maiming, and harm to U.S. personnel. Millions of resulting deaths in Afghanistan and Iraq. Destruction of nations where there was relative calms of the many tribes, groups, religious factions under powerful leaders. Subsequent copy-cat implosions of multiple nations in the Middle East and Africa. Growth of the Destroying the established social order and its structures of power, authority, and hierarchy in multiple nations. "Success" In Generating Explosive Growth Of People Wanting to Kill Americans All of the above people and groups involved in five decades of corruption protection by federal judges and Supreme Court Justices "succeeded" in disintegration of nations in the Middle East and establishing an explosive birth and growth of terrorist groups of unprecedented brutality. Sampling of the most probable terrorism in Americans' future, the consequences of the corrupt acts of U.S. politicians, further enabled by the cover-ups of federal judges and Supreme Court Justices, and retaliation against whistleblowers and the corruption fighter. Understanding Decades of Documented Events Reveals Evidence of a Vicious Secret Oligarchy In the U.S. Government There are other major national issues that affect the lives of everyone, and these very serious and heavily documented issues are found in other mini-documentaries at www.wikileaksusa.org.
