Unclassified, magazine of the Association of National Security Alumni:
"This extraordinary book ... is required reading for anyone concerned with national security system abuses ... a moving book by a man of integrity deeply affected by the injustice, criminality, and suffering he has seen and personally experienced over the past two decades. ... it is a hell of a good read."
Dick Gregory, WOL Radio Washington, D.C.:
"Defrauding America should be on top of every bible."
Fletcher Prouty, author of Secret Team and JFK-The CIA, Vietnam and the Plot to Assassinate John F. Kennedy): "Your book is great."

"The most explosive book on the market."
West Coast Review of Books:
Now Renamed History of Aviation Disasters: 1950 to 9/11
"It would be a tragedy if this book [Unfriendly Skies] were taken only as a technical study of air safety. It is in fact a candidate to be the most importantand best informed!discussion of public affairs of this decade."
Flight Review magazine:
"The book is dynamite and powerful reading that asserts various government interests have conspired to allow fraud-related air tragedies to be committed against the public and, in fact, allows them to occur through misconduct. The book describes forty years of air disasters and the covert behind-the-scene hard-core misconduct that caused and made them possible. It is a story of widespread cover-up by every known check and balance in the country. The book depicts the American public, and even foreign citizens, being victimized by a vast government racketeering enterprise, in which the air disaster victims are only one part of many."
BookwatchMidwest Book Review:
"A damning portrait of deliberate criminal misconduct in his descriptions of forty years of air disasters and behind-the-scenes cover-ups. Efforts of government agencies, individuals, and airlines to mislead the public are charted in chapters which include reviews of air safety standards and areas for improvement."
Flight Training magazine book reviewer, Dave Gwinn: "The amount of research and documentation within the book is 'awesome' ... the writing is splendid, easily read, and exceptionally well organized."
Johannesburg, Africa, Sunday Times Magazine.
"656-page tale of horrors unfolds ... The book made me realize how fallible humans are."
American Library Association:
"Unfriendly Skies is a record of scandal, disaster, and heartbreak that demands an accounting from the highest levels of the industry and government."
"He charges a cover-up of such proportions even the mass media don't want to touch the story, and I must say, makes a good case."
Book Review's Jan Frazer:
"In this shocking book, Rodney Stich presents impressive evidence to show that a virtual 'government Mafia' does indeed exist."
Seattle Times Magazine:
"The Unfriendly Skies is a shocking report ... the facts he cites are devastating, indicating dereliction of duty and responsibility by airlines and the federal authority supposedly checking on them." [This book in latest edition is now called, History of Aviation Disasters: 1950 to 9/11.

"Take some comfort in knowing that, but for men like you, I would likely not have had the courage to proceed, and may very well have succumbed to the temptation to surrender and avoid the interminable struggle with the seemingly unlimited number of dishonest government "representatives" that are far more powerful than any citizen. To me, you are one of the good guys, a real American hero. Perhaps, one day, some young, decent, honest, hardworking American will look at your life, and your efforts to make this country a better place, and think the same about me. For now, that is enough to make the effort seem worthwhile. (September 8, 2002, E-mail)

A TRIBUTE TO RODNEY STICH
"In pursuing our objectives with regard to corruption we are considering adopting as our logo the lantern depicted in the sketch by Giovanni Castiglione which he called "Diogenes search for a Man." In our continuing search for honesty in our time we are certain that we have found such a Man in Rodney Stich. Many of you are no doubt aware of him from his more than 2500 radio and television appearances. We commend to all of you the third edition of his book, Defrauding America, which is now available."
"Defrauding America Rodney Stich has published an encyclopedia of 753 pages covering the corruption he has personally verified and documented over the past thirty years. He has dedicated the volume to the memory of those who have suffered so grievously at the hands of corrupt government in the United States."
"This book reveals criminal and subversive activities implicating high-level personnel in the three branches of the federal government. It reveals why most of the public is dangerous uninformed about the criminal acts perpetrated against the United States and its people by the very people entrusted to prevent such happenings."
"Many criminal activities, such as CIA drugging of America, will be difficult to believe by most Americans who have been shielded from the truth by a duplicitous Congress and most of the media. For those of us who have seen these events as insiders, including those who actually participated in them, questioning whether the CIA would engage in drug trafficking is like asking pilots, 'Will planes really fly?' Yes, planes actually fly, and yes the CIA has been smuggling drugs into the United States for the past 50 years. But the crimes relating to drug trafficking are only a small part of the overall corruption described within these pages."
"His reference to planes, no doubt stems from the fact he is also the author of three editions of Unfriendly Skies, covering corruption in that arena."
"Our own investigations into corruption at all levels of government, which have taken place during the past twenty years, have caused us independently to reach the same conclusions as those expressed by Rodney. At this time we have, therefore, decided to acknowledge and defer to him as the authority on the subject and to devote our immediate efforts to making his book available to as many citizens as possible as soon as possible."
What We Can Do
"Rodney Stich deplores the fact so few of us realize that corruption has gradually come to be an accepted way of life in our nation and that most of us who know the truth feel there is nothing that can be done to decapitate the monster. In Chapter 32 of his book, he details the actions required to do so, but after thirty frustrating years even he is understandably pessimistic. In the same chapter he suggests that we "may possibly find a message in the song, The Impossible Dream, in the musical, Man of La Mancha. There is a message and a challenge in the words that may motivate the very few people who will respond to the challenge of the epidemic corruption in government."
"Dick Gregory has made an interesting comment: "Defrauding America should be on the top of every bible." We consider it an apt statement which points out the necessity for educating our citizenry just as soon as possible. A start toward that goal can be a campaign to put Defrauding America in every library and advertise its availability in the media. We hope that our readers will contact 1-800-247-7389 or www.defraudingamerica.com to place orders for themselves and to give to libraries and friends. All expenditures for books and advertising their availability can be tax-free contributions. Simply send copies of paid invoices to ACF, Suite 2B, Spartanburg, SC 229301 and we will immediately provide statements to attach to your returns that you have contributed the amounts as agents of ACF, a tax-free entity."
"I want to thank you, Sir, for sticking your patriotic neck out in exposing all of the bullshit that is killing our nation like a fatal cancer." (June 11, 2001 e-mail from veteran law enforcement officer.)
