Ceballos Decision Authorizing Retaliation Against
Government Agents Who Reveal Internal Corruption
The decision, Garcetti v. Ceballos, 128 S.Ct. 1951 (May 30, 2006) approved retaliation against any government agent or employee whose official reports displeased management. Even if the report accurately reported corruption in government offices and the report was a required function of the reporting government employee. Occurring after 9/11, when the Justices knew of the catastrophic consequences from the actions by federal judges, makes their decision even more outrageous, In effect, the landmark decision:
Approved retaliation against a government employee for performing his duty.
Approved management to retaliate against a government employee for performing his or her duty.
Approved the implied falsification of government reports to avoid retaliation by management−who may be part of the corruption discovered by the reporting agent.
The Justices knew that their decision would prevent government employees from reporting misconduct despite the legal requirement to include such facts in the report.

The Justices knew−and were part of−the series of corrupt judicial acts that enabled to occur a series of great American tragedies.
Consequences and Implications of The
Supreme Court Decision on National Security
The significance of that May 30, 2006, Supreme Court decision cannot be overemphasized. The five Supreme Court Justices approved retaliation against government agents/employees who write into their officially-required reports statements that are not desired by management. This requires, government agents/employees, in order to avoid retaliation, to doctor, corrupt, or falsify their reports to omit the truth. If the decision existed before 9/11, consider the following situations (and what will now occur, and what already existed due to retaliation against whistleblowers):
FBI agent would not be reporting suspected terrorists going
through pilot training in the United States.
FBI agent would not be reporting suspicions that Zacarias
Moussaoui was taking simulator training to be an airline hijacker.
FAA inspectors would not be reporting the urgent need to
implement the known procedures to prevent hijackings.
Government agents would not be reporting the drug smuggling of
other CIA agents.
The FBI agents in the Boston office did not report their
suspicions that several FBI agents were members of a Boston crime
group with Ray Bulger and involved in murders.
The FBI agents in the New York City offices did not report their suspicions that FBI Supervisory Agent Lindley DeVecchio was working with Colombo Mafia boss Gregory Scarpa and involved with multiple murders, bank robberies, and other crimes.
Examples of agents who could or were harmed by the de facto application of this Supreme Court decision:
FAA air safety agent who reported corrupt, criminal, unsafe, and illegal practices that enabled to occur a series of fatal airline disasters, some of which occurred in his immediate area of government air safety responsibilities. Included in the reports for which FAA safety agent Rodney Stich (and others) suffered retaliation was the need to implement the inexpensive and easy measures to prevent the 40 years of hijackings that followed his reports. The cover-ups of those serious problems—and the retaliation against reporting inspectors—caused the unsafe and illegal conditions to continue—along with decades of specific preventable airline disasters. The latest: the hijackings of four airliners on 9/11 as FAA management blocked the implementation of known preventative measures during the prior 40 years of airline hijackings.
FBI Special Agent Richard Taus, who suffered retaliation for
reporting criminal activities of the CIA during the 1980s, and of
his immediate FBI supervisor, Lindley DeVecchio. In 2006, the
Brooklyn district attorney circumvented the FBI and DOJ block--and
the block by federal judges—and charged DeVecchio with multiple
murders while he was an FBI agent.
