Areas of Corrupt Conduct That Enabled Simultaneous Hijackings of Four Airliners On 9/11 Never revealed to the American public because of the complicity of many key people in government, there were two areas of corruption that enabled the easily preventable and prior notice were the following: The heavily documented problems in the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), known to informed insiders as "the tombstone agency." Those problems included a history of incompetence, politics, revolving door syndrome, and corruption. Those problems led to the FAA's failure to take the most obvious means for hijacking aircraft, that could have been implemented overnight. The removal of cockpit door keys from the cabin flight attendants. It was the taking of those keys from flight attendants by the hijackers that gave them easy access to the pilots. The criminal withholding by personnel in the U.S. Department of Justice of notice they received from a mole in the most aggressive al Qaeda cell that hijackings of airliners were planned. The withholding of that advance information was to prevent the American public from learning about the decades of murders involving FBI-DOJ personnel with a brutal Mafia capo known as "the killing machine." There were other enablers, but this requires far more information that is available elsewhere. Details of the first two enabling causes follow. Scheme by U.S. Department of Justice Personnel Had Repeated Catastrophic Consequences Quick highlights of corruption that enabled the nation's worst series of terrorist attacks to occur: Department of Justice officials deep-sixed advance information of the planned airline hijackings. The purpose was to protect key FBI Supervisor's complicity in murders in the New York City offices, approved by Washington personnel—similar to the murders involving FBI-DOJ personnel in the Boston offices with mobster James "Whitey" Bulger. That scheme insured the success of the al Qaeda attacks—and the 3,000 horrific deaths—and the worse that followed. Documented Details, as Discovered by Corruption Fighter, Captain Rodney Stich In addition to the prior 35 years of discovering, reporting, and fighting the corruption in the FAA and of personnel in the U.S. Department of Justice, Captain Stich became the confidant of the mole in the al Qaeda cell providing the insider information on the planned al Qaeda attacks, and of a highly decorated Lt. Colonel Richard Taus, who repeatedly risked his life as helicopter pilot to rescue gravely wounded military personnel in Washington, who later became an FBI Special Agent in the New York City FBI-DOJ offices. This was where the murders were going on with Mafia capo Gregory Scarpa, Sr. (The mole was the son of the Mafia capo.) A former Mafiosi in the New York City area (Gregory Scarpa, Jr..) acted as a mole inside the al Qaeda cell headed by Ramzi Yousef. The New York area cell was headed by Ramzi Yousef, responsible for the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center and the planner behind the expected bombings of 11 U.S. airliners departing Far East Locations. That mole convinced Yousef that he and his Mafia group were interested in inflicting harm upon the United States, and a sham corporation was set up through which Yousef made many phone calls to other al Qaeda assets in the United States, including New York, and in Pakistan. Knowledge of Planned al Qaeda Attacks Reported to FBI As the Information was Received The mole received advance notice of several major terrorist attacks upon major U.S. targets. In sequence, these were the planned terrorist attack targets: Downing of a U.S. airliner leaving New York City. (The downing of TWA Flight 800 occurred shortly thereafter, with the usual cover-up by the political NTSB board members and FBI-DOJ employees.) The bombings of U.S. Embassies in Africa (which did occur with heavy loss of life). The hijacking of U.S. airliners (which, of course, did occur on September 11, 2001). The mole regularly passed this information to local FBI agents, who considered the explosive information highly reliable. The U.S. had no other mole in such a key al Qaeda cell. If that information had been passed on, actions could have been taken to prevent the forewarned terrorist attacks that killed nearly 4,000 people. The information was not passed on. High FBI-DOJ personnel would have been subject to serious charges of misconduct if the information had been passed on and the mole had been given credibility. There was an urgent self-interest need to discredit the mole: he would be testifying on several murder trials about the murders that his father, a mafia capo, committed with a key FBI supervisor in the New York offices. 4,000 people were initially sacrificed (followed by many more) so as to protect the FBI supervisor involved in multiple murders and the cover-ups by higher FBI-DOJ personnel. The full story, not found anywhere else, is in the book, Crimes of the FBI-DOJ, and the Mafia. The author, former federal agent Rodney Stich, had years of continuous communication with the Mafia mole, and even a longer relationship with an FBI agent who worked directly under the FBI supervisor involved in the murders. The corruption was then covered up by key people in control of the 9/11 Commission, and primarily the Department of Justice and White House-connected personnel that controlled the contents. More information at other pages, including this one. Another list of enablers related to the 9/11 catastrophic events. The details are found in books written by former federal agent Rodney Stich with help and documentation provided by the mole in the al Qaeda cell obtaining and advance information on the terrorist attacks: History of Aviation Disasters: 1950 to 9/11. Crimes of the FBI-DOJ, Mafia, and al Qaeda. Terrorism and the Greatest Enable Scandals of the 21st Century. DOJ-Controlled 9/11 Commission Protected The DOJ Enablers—Including Themselves! The 9/11 Commission, staffed with high-level Department of Justice personnel involved in the deep-sixing of advance information, subverted the final report to insure that the corruption that made 9/11 possible—especially the actions by Department of Justice personnel—would not be known by the public. For instance: The role of FBI-DOJ personnel in covering up for top-level information on planned terrorist attacks obtained from an al Qaeda cell, infiltrated by a New York City Mafioso acting as mole. That Mafia mole passed advance information of planned terrorist attacks to FBI agents in the New York City offices, permitting various government agencies, including DOJ, to take preventative actions. That information was not passed along to other government entities, and no preventative measure taken: The concealing of this critical information—ordered by high-level Department of Justice personnel—was motivated by the need to discredit the mole who would be testifying shortly about murders perpetrated by a key FBI supervisor with the mole's father. The 9/11 Commission covered up for the deep-seated culture of corruption within the Federal Aviation Administration, Details and documentation on this relationship can be found in the following two books: Crimes of the FBI-DOJ, Mafia, and al Qaeda, and History of Aviation Disasters: 1950 to 9/11. The books are available in print and e-book formats at amazon.com and other sources. Letters sent to 9/11 Commission addressing part of the enabling causes that Captain Stich knew at that time: Letters sent to the 9/11 Commission by former federal air safety professional. Stich's Declaration dated January 21, 2002, sent to 9/11 Commission, before Scarpa provided him the additional information. Stich's declarations of July 19, 2003, sent to 9/11 Commission. Stich's letter to the head of the 9/11 Commission chairman, September 19, 2003. Stich's letter dated October 21, 2003, to 9/11 commission Chairman Kean. Stich's declaration dated April 12, 2004, sent to the 9/11 commission, that details the four areas of blame that enabled terrorists to seize four airliners on 9/11. These include the two primary areas that are being deliberately circumvented, a standard tactic to control any investigation so as to prevent the criminal misconduct of government officials to be exposed. This occurred in such controlled investigations such as October Surprise and the drug smuggling associated with the Contra operation during which the United States subverted the Nicaraguan government. Ludicrous conspiracy tales that divert attention from the corrupt conduct of U.S. enablers and continues the culture of corruption that made 9/11 and other major tragedies possible. Two world-record aviation disasters inside New York City, both preceded by enabling documented corruption. Second Enabling Cause: Deadly Problems in The FAA, As Reported for prior 30 Years The federal agency primarily responsible for aviation safety is the Federal Aviation Administration, long called "the tombstone agency" for all the deaths made possible by the political management, incompetence, revolving door syndrome, and corruption. Just like almost every other government agency, except the consequences are and endless series of funerals! Here is how former airline captain and than FAA airline safety inspector appeared in the picture: The major and politically-powerful airline, experienced the world's greatest number of airline disasters, resulting from corrupt conduct known to a select few FAA inspectors, resulting in a safety-orientated (as distinct from the political side of FAA management) to give Los Angeles-based FAA airline safety inspector the unprecedented official life-and-death-assignment to halt and correct the safety problems at that airline and circumvent the problems within the local FAA office that was aiding and abetting the corruption, that was endemic throughout the FAA. Unprecedented gross violations of federally-required and industry-accepted aviation safety corruption was then found and reported of United Airlines. FAA inspector than came under intense attack from the airline and mostly from various divisions of the politically-focused FAA management. (Remember: "The tombstone agency.") While FAA inspector Stich was attempting to halt the corrupt practices that he discovered and reported, the airline continued to experience crashes and deaths, in addition to crashes elsewhere due to the same safety problems that Stich reported and sought to correct. Two deadly crashes occurred. due to safety problems and criminal acts that he uncovered, while Stich was under attack. One of the two deadly crashes resulting from the aviation safety corruption that he discovered was a perfect text book example of how crashes and deaths directly result from corrupt and criminal acts and cover-ups. This one was at Salt Lake City. In desperation, seeking to halt the brutal crashes, he used the law as it had never before been used: FAA inspector Rodney Stich acted similar to an independent prosecutor , which continued for several months. At the end of the proceedings, Stich filed a FAA closing brief. FAA attorney William Jennings, on the staff of the FAA Administrator that was part of the attacks upon Stich, then issued a fraudulent decision that there were no safety problems. That sham decision had to ignore (a) the official life-and-death assignment that was based on the safety problems; (b) the airline long list of world-record airline disasters; (c) the crashes occurring during the hearing; (d) the dozens of precise official reports showing massive violations of major safety requirements; (e) the criminal acts wherein the airline fraudulently reported major safety requirements to have occurred when they had not occurred. After that sham decision, the head of the FAA Sky Marshal program urged Stich to prepare a report for the FAA Administrator and that he would co-sign the report, which he did. Stich than prepared an FAA cover letter for the report to the FAA Administrator, and then the report, which for convenience is presented in three parts: Part One; Part Two; Part Three. The occurrence of the three airline disasters while the corruption was being reported by Stich during the hearings was such a major scandal that the cover-up continued, with the FAA Administrator and many others. After the hearing cover-up, the primary enablers of the corruption were given outstanding performance reports and promotions—an ugly tribute to the people who died during these proceedings. The same culture continued, as did the resulting aviation disasters. Far more details, in the not-for-profit book, History of Aviation Disasters: 1950 to 9/11, by Captain Rodney Stich. There Were, Consequences! Enablers Shifting Blame from Themselves To Innocent Afghans and Iraqis U.S. politicians reacted to the 9/11 attacks—in which some of them were enablers—by covering up their enabling role and blaming Afghanistan and Iraq: U.S. politicians ordering the bombing and invasion of Afghanistan, on the basis that one segment of al Qaeda members existed in remote areas of the country that were outside of any government control; despite the Taliban government being unaware of the planned terrorist attacks; and despite the fact that the Taliban government offered to turn the al Qaeda members in Afghanistan over to a United Nation's tribunal or third nation for trial. A Guardian newspaper article (October 14, 2001) stated details of the Taliban's offer to turn al Qaeda members over to a third country and that President George W. Bush refused the offer, demanding that they be turned over to the United States. Bush rejected as "non-negotiable" the offer to discuss stopping the bombing and killing of Afghans unless all al Qaeda personnel in Afghanistan were turned over to the United States. (If the condition's were reversed, and Afghanistan or any other country was demanding that a group in the United States be turned over to that country, that demand would also have been rejected. Somewhat like U.S. refusing to turn over CIA agents involved in rendition crimes in other sovereign nations.) A nation that had no role in the 9/11 attacks was then turned into the enemy, resulting in thousands of innocent Iraqis killed; thousands of American GIs killed, maimed, or wounded; the longest lasting war in the nation's history; and another catalysts for the greatest growth in the world of people wanting to kill Americans. U.S. politicians ordering the invasion of Iraq, totally blameless, and if anything, a strong block to Muslim terrorism. U.S. politicians, by first lying to the American public that Iraq was involved in the 9/11 hijackings, and then giving the gullible segment of the American public lie after lie, that were contradicted by United Nations reports and other easily available source of authentic information on the Internet. U.S. politicians then ordered military actions against a nation and its people that not only had no role in the terrorist attacks but also was a major defense against the extension of terrorist in Iraq. at the start of 2011, 4500 dead American GIs, and over 100,000 maimed or wounded. Reported Iraqis killed: Comparison of enabling blame for success of 9/11 hijackers between Afghanistan and Iraq as compared powerful enablers in the United States. Other enablers, a complex subject described elsewhere. Complex subject that requires considerable concentration. Grave Ripple Effects from Protecting U.S. Enablers The effect of shifting blame from the primary enablers to innocent or minor groups compounded many times over the harm that America and its people have suffered and will continue to suffer: Continued in position the culture within key government entities that enabled to occur, or directly inflicted, great harm to the people, the nation, and national security, and obstructing justice in a wholesale manner. Committed the American people to two wars, each the longest lasting gin U.S. history, that: Made the U.S. less safe by causing the greatest number of people in the world's history wanting to kill Americans. The death, brutal and horrific maiming, and wounding of over 100,000 Americans already. Made the Taliban government a major enemy by starting war against it of highly questionable grounds, for which there is no winning. The religious fanatics in that government was not justification for killing tens of thousands of innocent Afghans. Destabilized one of the most westernized countries in the Middle East, Iraq, whose policies were aided and funded throughout the 1980s by secret funding of the Reagan and Bush administrations. Another example of U.S. leaders shifting blame from the guilty to innocents, and the awesome consequences. Ludicrous Conspiracy Theories Divert Attention from the Enablers Impeding the public's learning the truth about the misconduct of people and groups in the United States that played a far greater role than any foreign group for the easy success of the 9/11 hijackers are certain conspiracy 9/11 theorists. The public's ability to understand the arrogant high-level corruption within government that played a greater role than any foreign group enabling the easy hijackings of four airliners, provided by professionals and insiders, is being blocked by people providing conspiracy theorists to the public. The following facts are examples: A plane never crashed into the Pentagon! Ignoring such facts as: Media pictures of American Airlines 757, Flight 77 aircraft parts scattered on Pentagon grounds. Where is the missing plane? Hiding in the clouds maybe! Where are the plane's passengers and crew? Please, call home!! The United Airlines 757 and American Airlines 768 aircraft never crashed into the World Trade Center! Ignoring such facts as: Numerous video pictures of the planes flying into the World Trade Center towers! Phone calls from passengers on the hijacked aircraft prior to impact, Including United Airlines Flight 93! If no planes, where are the United Airlines 757 and American Airlines 757 Fli8ght 175 and the hundreds of passengers and crew! Explosive charges in the World Trade Center buildings caused the collapse! Ignoring such facts as: Placing explosives on every level of the WTC buildings would require one or more 18-wheel truckloads of explosives; to be taken into the buildings and placed, along with miles of wire, without these labor-intensive actions being noticed by any of the thousands of people in the buildings. For those conspiracy crazies that allege that the bomb explosions occurred simultaneous with the impact of the aircraft. The aircraft that crashed into the WTC had missiles under the wing! Ignoring such facts as: Attaching a missile under the wing is not a simple covert act that would escape detection. Considerable attachment provisions would be needed, including fastenings into the fuel-containing wings; that could not be done with dozens of maintenance and service personnel circulating around the aircraft prior to departure, including visual inspection by the pilots; and the hundreds of boarding passengers and terminal observers. There would be no need for missiles under the wing if the aircraft were to be flown into the World Trade Center. Coordination would be expected between the actual hijackers and the people involved in the extensive attachment requirements and cover-ups. United Airlines Boeing 757, Flight 93, did not crash into Pennsylvania! Ignoring such evidence as: The smoldering mass deeply embedded into the ground. The remains of the passengers and crew were recovered, along with the recorders. The cockpit voice recorder showing conversations, and the flight data recorder, were recovered, Radar plots of the aircraft. Where is the aircraft and the hundreds of passengers and crew! Please, call home!!! The 9/11 hijackings were concocted by government personnel. Ignoring such facts as: Coordinating such a attack would not be within the capability of government personnel. There would be no benefits for any group in government, especially since the endemic corruption that does exist requires an absence of harm that focuses on government shortcomings. The conspiracy theorists involved in shifting attention away from the unprecedented arrogance and corruption that made 9/11 and a series of other terrorist attacks possible includes such people as Jesse Ventura; former airline pilots, talk show hosts, and others. This dismal lack of common sense and conflict with reality is similar to what was shown during the recent elections in 2010, the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq, and a host of other fiascos. This level of conduct reflects the low level of reading by the public of books written by professionals and insiders, making possible easily prevented half century of high level corruption and an endless series of great harm to individual Americans, to the public, and to the nation. Worsening the consequences of the wild allegations is that attention was diverted from the primary enablers of the 9/11 hijackers to Afghanistan and Iraq, whose roles as enablers were either non-existent or far less than those people in the U.S. government. See www.defraudingamerica.com/911_blame_comparison.html. This writer has been in military, commercial, and federal aviation accident investigations since 1941, has written numerous highly acclaimed documentary books on aviation subjects and that of corruption in government and the catastrophic ripple effects. The nation, doesn't need conspiracy theories that are contradicted by massive facts and common sense, which simply diverts the public's attention from the grave systemic corruption and systemic cover-ups. An unprecedented amount of information by dozens of former intelligence, law enforcement and other insider personnel can be found at www.defraudingamerica.com and related links and not-for-profit documentary books. But this requires willingness to exert effort to read and understand, a losing "art!" Key People and Groups Threatened If the Public Knew—and Reacted The gravity of the criminal conduct, the gravity of the years of deadly and harmful consequences, and the broad spectrum of government entities complicit, along with key non-government groups, puts too many groups, and the backbone of government and society in the United States complicit, makes it improbable that the American public will ever learn, or understand, or have the courage to react. People in the government's aviation safety offices. . Justice Department personnel. who repeatedly blocked government agents from reporting corruption in government, and even filed false criminal charges to silence and discredit those who could make such reports. Federal judges, up to and including the Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court. who repeatedly obstructed justice by blocking former government agents from reporting the criminal activities, and also misused their judicial positions to retaliate against Stich and other former government agents, thereby committing other criminal acts associated with inflicting harm on former government agents. Hoard of lawyers and law firms that continued from 1982 to 2005 that filing sham lawsuits knowing that they were hindering or blocking Stich's efforts to expose these matters, and whose actions were blocked by dozens of start and federal statutes and controlling case law, being violated with the cooperation of California and federal judges. The many members of Congress who had been repeatedly told of these criminal and subversive activities and who covered up for them, enabling such events to occur as those of 9/11. Many of the same members of Congress condemning FBI and CIA personnel for not being more responsive were the same members of Congress who refused to respond to the many letters Stich and other government agents had sent to them, offering to provide testimony and evidence. Other forms of corruption in Congress has been reportedly reported and accepted by the American public. The endemic cover-ups by media people, by political pundits with an agenda to cover up for the guilty. They were repeatedly made aware of specific acts and the ripple effects. The response of the American public was not exactly electrifying. The involvement of so many people in so many groups of the U.S. government—reflecting a criminalization of the U.S. government so serious that few people will consider it possible—insures that changes in the corrupt culture and endless series of worsening consequences will not occur (though possible).

Federal Crimes Committed by Enablers In criminal law, people are accomplices, and guilty of federal crimes, if they know of a criminal act and fail to report it to proper authorities and also to take efforts within their capability to halt their continuation. And there are endless numbers of accomplices that are complicit in these crimes and enablers of the consequences. In criminal law, people are accomplices, and guilty, if they know of a criminal act and fail to report it to proper authorities and also to take efforts within their capability to halt their continuation. And there are endless numbers of accomplices that are complicit in these crimes and enablers of the consequences. Complicity: The state or condition of a person who is involved as an accomplice. Accomplice: One who knowingly, voluntarily, and with a common interest with others, participates in the commission of a crime as a principal, accessory, or aider and abettor. Principal: Under federal statutes, he who, in the commission of an illegal act with others, such as maintaining an illicit still, conducting a burglary or a holdup, arms and instructs his confederates to kill if obstructed in the attempt, with the purpose and intent that they do so, is in law a principal in any willful killing which results from carrying out those instructions. Young v. United States (CA 5 Tex) 97 F2d 200. Accessory: A person who in some manner is connected with a crime, either before or after its perpetration, but who is not present at the time the crime is committed. 21 Am J2d Crim L § 115. Accessory after the fact: A person who, knowing a felony to have been committed, receives, relieves, comforts or assists the felon, or in any manner aids him to escape arrest. 21 Am J2d Crim L § 126. Accessory at the fact: Persons who were present at the commission of a crime. Aiding and abetting: A term in criminal law, meaning the advising, counseling, procuring, or encouraging another to commit a crime. Aider: One who aids or abets; one who advises, co0unsels, procures, or encourages another to commit a crime. 21 Am J2d Crim L § 119. Abet: To give aid, to assist, especially in the commission of a criminal offense. To exertion of a force, physical or moral, joined with that of another in the perpetration of a criminal offense. Anno: 5 ALR 786. Abettor: One who aids, abets or instigates; one who advises, counsels, procures or encourages another to commit a crime. 21 Am J2d Crim L § 119. Criminal complicity applies to a person who knowingly, voluntarily, and with common intent unites with the principal offender in the commission of a crime. One who is in some way concerned or associated in commission of crime; partaker of guilt; one who aids or assists, or is an accessory. One who is guilty of complicity in crime charged, either by being present and aiding or abetting in it, or having advised and encouraged it, though absent from place when it was committed, though mere presence, acquiescence, or silence, in the absence of a duty to act, is not enough, no matter how reprehensible it may be, to constitute one an accomplice. One is liable as an accomplice to the crime of another if he or she gave assistance or encouragement or failed to perform a legal duty to prevent it with the intent thereby to promote or facilitate commission of the crime. No One to Punish the Guilty When the system becomes corrupted to this extent, with the unprecedented occurrences of great harm, death, and catastrophic effects—aided and abetted by most government and non-government checks and balances—and the public is either kept ignorant of the corrupt, or too apathetic to read the available information or too indifferent, there doesn't seem to be any remedy. One answer to the culture is a carefully selected and controlled system of ombudsmen at every level of local, state, and federal government charged with monitoring specific areas of government conduct, and composed of people as far removed as possible from any source of influence or bias. And another level of ombudsmen to monitor the conduct of lower level ombudsmen. Such safeguards would be years down the road and requires intervention by a vocal and educated segment of the public. The culture of those in firm control of key government offices has become so embedded that there is virtually no remedy. Except a powerful, informed, and outraged public.

Do Nothing, and You Join the Long List of Enablers Recognizing the gravity of these matters, and the great number of key people and groups complicit in the catastrophic events that were made possible by their corrupt acts, it should be obvious that the people in control of the system—and the news—-will never make any effort to have these matters known to the American people. Only a courageous and vocal segment of the American people can attempt to right these wrongs. This cannot be done unless enough good people are willing to spend enough time to understand these issues and be fortified with the determination and outrage that is long overdue.
