FAA's Sky Marshal Program

The air marshal program was authorized in 1963 by President Kennedy, which provided for federal law enforcement officers be deployed to act as security officers on certain high risk flights. The initial head of that program was John Graziano, based at the FAA training center in Oklahoma City. The purpose was to prevent airliners from being hijacked.

The Sky Marshal program was moved to the Transportation Security Administration and then, after the 9/11 hijackings, moved again to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security in November 2002. That is the agency where its head, Janet Napolitano, stated after the December 25, 2009, attempted bombing of a Northwest Airlines aircraft by an al Qaeda operative that the system was working, despite numerous failures that allowed the terrorist to board the airline with explosives hidden in his underwear.

Original Sky Marshal Chief
Warned of Deadly Problems in FAA

In 1966, the head of the FAA Sky Marshal Program, John Graziano, signed a lengthy declaration with FAA airline safety expert Rodney Stich, describing in great detail the serious problems within the FAA that were responsible for a continuing series of airline disasters. That report was sent to the administrator of the primary government's aviation safety agency, the Federal Aviation Administration.

That report is shown here, broken into three sections for easy downloading in PDF format:

The FAA administrator covered up for the internal FAA problems. Many aviation disasters were then made possible, with thousands of preventable deaths, the latest being the easy hijackings of four airliners on September 11, 2001.


Subsequent Events


An endless series of events then followed for the next 40 years that are too complex for this page. They are heavily described in Stich's latest book, History of Aviation Disasters: 1950 to 9/11, and presents inner secrets of corruption throughout the U.S. government that are beyond the comprehension of virtually anyone. Much of the information can be obtained by starting with the home page at www.defraudingamerica.com.

That Motivated the Former Government Agent,
Whistleblower, and Activist to Continue
His Futile David vs. Goliath Efforts

As a result of the widespread corruption in overt and covert government operations, the systemic cover-ups that treat high-level corruption as the "third-rail," and the retaliation against whistleblowers, great American tragedies have repeatedly occurred, and will continue to occur.

9/11 Easily-Preventable Multiple 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.

Consequences of Corruption, Cover-Ups, And
Retaliation Felonies Not Limited to Aviation

There were many other forms of victims from the systemic high-level corruption. These included for instance victims of the:

  • Department of Justice prosecutorial misconduct, people being falsely charges with crimes in order to improve the prosecutors' career.

  • The explosion of violent crime related to drug smuggling into the United States, in which CIA assets were major players.

  • Series of financial frauds appearing every few years, with the latest housing and financial implosions surfacing in 2008.

  • Seizure of assets from innocent people.

  • And many other forms.

These offenses are described in the books written by insiders.

Corruption of the Type Described at this site does not occur in a vacuum. High-level corruption in one area is simply one tentacle of a widespread culture of corruption. And the consequences of that corruption−and the endemic cover-ups−have consequences in other areas. The culture of corruption affects the people and the nation in many other ways, That includes the latest series of financial frauds that has occurred in the housing and financial sectors. Also, the effect of the endemic corruption and endemic cover-ups−major parts of the culture in the United States−that enablers successful terrorist attacks upon U.S. interests.

Harm to People Overseas From Culture Of
High-Level Corruption and Lies in the United States

In addition to the decades of harm resulting from the systemic corruption of key people and groups in the U.S. government, affecting aviation safety, financial, human rights, in the United States, there is the harm from outside sources brought about by the actions of U.S. politicians affecting people in other countries—such as the history of invading and killing foreigners—there are the successful "terrorist" attacks made possible by high-level corruption, and then there are the foreigners who are also victims from the same high-level corruption that adversely affects the American, but in a different form.

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.

Suggestion to people outside the United States. Become familiar with the documented systemic corruption in the United States and show the outrage lacking of people in the United States, and:

  • Help expose the endemic corruption that seem to be acceptable to the American people, and maybe wake them up.

  • Help to protect yourselves against the decades of ham inflicted upon people of other countries by the actions of U.S. politicianssupported by much of the American public. Examples:

    • Serial lying by U.S. politicians to use as a pretense to invade Iraq and Afghanistan, killing tens of thousands of innocent people.

    • U.S. politicians shifting enabling blame from their own corrupt actions that encouraged and enabled four groups of terrorists to simultaneously hijack four airliners, and shift the blame to the people of Iraq and Afghanistanwith the help of a dumbed-down American public that is mostly too lazy to learn the truth.
