Unprecedented Official Life-and-Death Assignment To Halt Corruption-Enabled Aviation Disasters World record aviation scandal. In 1964, due to the continuing series of deadly airline disasters at a major politically-powerful airline, noted for its corrupt failure to provide federal aviation safety requirements, that other airlines were providing. a safety-orientated faction in the FAA at Los Angeles (as distinct from the more powerful political factions), gave FAA airline safety inspector, Rodney Stich, the unprecedented life-and-death assignment to halt the corrupt safety practices at a major politically-powerful airline, and in a local FAA office. That serious misconduct, and criminal violations, were enabling a continuing series of horrific aviation disasters. (The politically-orientated FAA management played an enabling role in the tragedies.) None of the enablers at United Airlines or in the FAA, or other enablers, ever suffered any consequences: only the victims, their families, and the few who sought to report and halt the corrupt conduct. Attack While On Life-and-Death Assignment: Enabling Three Immediate Crashes As Stich discovered, reported, and attempted to correct the massive aviation safety and violations, he came under attack by the airline, the pilots' union, and primarily by the political segments of the FAA, starting with the FAA Administrator, William F. McKee. During these attacks, three additional airline disasters occurred, two of them at that airline and due to the safety problems and criminal acts that Stich had repeatedly reported in writing and sought to correct. One was a textbook example of how corrupt conduct at an airline or the FAA results in airline crashes and deaths. Concerned with the continuing series of airline crashes and deaths, and the cover-ups by every relevant check and balance, and defying advice by other FAA safety inspectors who warned Stich, "You can't fight the system," or "You'll get shot if you continue," Stich started a cruise that would expand far beyond the aviation area and lasting over 40 years. He eventually became the person to whom many other professionals in government provided information on tragedy-related corruption in government that they had experienced. Desperate Attempt to Halt the Continuing Deaths: Acting as Unprecedented Independent Prosecutor Reacting to the criminal acts that were blocking him from completing his life-and-death assignment, he used the law in such a manner that he acted similar to an independent prosecutor. This resulted in several months of court-like proceedings where he produced evidence and had FAA management provide testimony under oath. Approximately 4,000 pages of court reporter transcript of testimony and government documents comprised the record. The following are documents from those proceedings: Closing brief of FAA inspector Rodney Stich at the end of the proceedings. Upon the end of the proceedings exposing the massive misconduct in the FAA, Stich filed a closing brief that highlighted the many safety violations and corrupt acts related to several recent crashes, and addressed the lies and deceptions during the proceedings. In that closing brief, Stich warned that a cover-up would continue the misconduct, the culture, and the crashes. That proved to be true for many subsequent years.

Three Deadly Airline Crashes While Under Attack Three back-to-back airline disasters occurred during the attacks and the proceedings. The direct causes of the crashes were the exact problems that Stich had repeatedly reported in writing and were part of the official records. The enabling causes of the direct causes was the corruption in the FAA. The administrative hearing officer, William Jennings, a lawyer on the staff of the FAA Administrator (where the FAA attacks originated) held that there were no safety problems, despite the facts that: Three airline disasters occurred during the hearing and within a period of six months. The original unprecedented life-and-death assignment was in response to the known safety problems and series of prior airline crashes. Numerous official FAA records reported violations of major aviation safety requirements; the criminal falsification by the airline of government-required records. Testimony. Following the cover-up at the end of the proceedings, the head of the FAA’s Sky Marshal’s program encouraged Stich to prepare a report to the FAA administrator; he said he would co-sign the report. A copy of that report, and cover letter, to the FAA Administrator, dated August 8, 1966, is available at: Cover letter to the FAA Administrator cosigned by the head of the FAA Sky Marshall program. http://www.defraudingamerica.com/faa_cover_letter_to_administrator_aug08_1966.pdf. Part one of the report: faa_report_to_administrator_part_one_aug08_1966.pdf. Part two of the report: faa_report_to_administrator_part_two_aug08_1966.pdf. Part three of the report: faa_report_to_administrator_part_three_aug08_1966.pdf. The FAA Administrator continued the cover-ups. The perpetrators in the FAA were protected, rewarded with outstanding performance reports and bonuses, and promotions. The corruption continued, along with the cover-ups by the political NTSB board members and others, along with the expected fraud-enabled crashes and deaths. To non-political FAA and NTSB insiders, the FAA was known as "the tombstone agency," because of the many crashes and deaths resulting from the controlling political elements. Meaningless Congressional Response During the tense period while Stich was reporting the massive and unprecedented corruption at that airline, and within the Denver FAA office, he made numerous reports to members of Congress. They acknowledged the seriousness of the charges. Within two years of receiving these reports, Congress abolished the Federal Aviation Agency and replaced it with the Federal Aviation Administration, and placed it under the newly created Department of Transportation. They could then state they changed the situation. But the same personnel and the same culture continued, as did the corruption-enabled aviation disasters. http://www.wikileaksusa.org/letter_list_congress.html. Some showed their concern—until the combination of corruption and deaths became a national scandal. www.wikileaksusa.org/letter_list_from.html. Ironically, one of the airline crashes that caused the small safety-oriented group in the Los Angeles regional office to give me the life-and-death assignment was the world-record aviation disaster into New York City. enabled by documented massive corruption at that airline. The crash of a DC-8 of the corruption-riddled airline safety program into the heart of New York City. www.wikileaksusa.org/nyc_connected_disasters.html. Continuing Culture and Cover-Ups: Enabling Continuing Crashes and Deaths While the guilty were being rewarded—some during the funerals being held for the victims of their corrupt conduct—the political FAA management removed Stich from aviation safety matters and banished him to the FAA center at Oklahoma City. He filed a report stating he would not work under such criminal activities, and left, to return to his home in Northern California. The preventable airline disasters The same personnel and the same culture in the FAA continued, enabling the corruption, politics, and incompetent to continue, along with the expected series of aviation disasters and deaths. Several decades later, the number of aviation disasters sharply dropped. This drop was due to such factors as the more reliable and easier to fly jet; the increase in system reliability; collision avoidance systems; ground proximity warning systems; radar following from takeoff to landing. Decades Later: Fewer Aviation Disasters— But Some, Cataclysmic Some preventable and horrific aviation disasters did continue. The most notable of these easily preventable aviation disasters were the easily preventable and forewarned hijackings of four airliners on September 11, 2001. Based on insider but documented information, the most direct enablers included: The FAA political, incompetent, management culture, that blocks addressing unsafe matters. Each of those four airliners could have been prevented from being hijacked if the FAA had ordered that the cabin flight attendants not have keys to the cockpit, a change that could have been put into effect nationwide over night. Major direct criminal conduct by high-level personnel in the U.S. Department of Justice had a more direct role in enabling the easily preventable. They had been advised of planned al Qaeda attacks by a former New York City Mafiosi and his New York City attorney. Instead of acting on the information, high level DOJ personnel in Washington deep-sixth the information. The reason: to prevent the public from learned about FBI-DOJ personnel being involved with a Mafia capo known as "the killing machine" in a series of murders.

Colonel who had repeatedly risked his life in Vietnam as a helicopter pilot saving wounded military personnel. Those criminal acts enabled a series of successful al Qaeda attacks, two wars, and collapse of a series of secular governments in the Middle East—and the growth of a radical and brutal Muslim group: The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.

Indirect enablers and their criminal cover-ups and attacks upon corruption-fighter to halt his efforts. To understand their role requires considerable reading of material that is provided by insiders. Among the sources of information are the following: Federal judges, and their 30 years of blocking lawsuits seeking to report the corruption and resulting harm. In addition, federal judges and Department of Justice personnel used their positions in a criminal manner to sent the corruption fighter to federal prison for filing a federal action reporting the corruption and the ongoing catastrophic consequences, including the beginning of fraud-enabled al Qaeda successes; and the corrupt seizure of his $10 million in assets that funded his exposure actions.

Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court, who were repeatedly notified, started in the 1970s, and who aided and abetted the ongoing corruption. Media personnel, who were first notified in the 1960s, and continued the lapdog cover-ups of the misconduct that was subverting the government of the United States.

Two of World's Worst Airline Disasters Into Heart of New York City— Both Enabled by Corrupt Conduct and Cover-Ups One of their DC-8 jets crashed into the Brooklyn section of New York City. 40 years later, another world-record aviation disaster occurred inside New York City, preceded by even worse corruption, where Stich was heavily involved prior to that later event, reporting the corruption. See the details at All of the four hijacked airliners could have been prevented with a simple over-night order barring flight attendants from having keys to the cockpit door. A glaring oversight that anyone competent in aviation safety would have recognized. Helping to understand the 40-year consequences from corruption and cover-ups, two world record related airline disasters occurred in the heart of New York City, each one enabled by corruption and cover-ups involving the efforts of the corruption-fighter, Captain Rodney Stich. The above corruption and cover-ups eventually played major enabling roles in a series terrorist successes.
