On December 16, 1960, a United Airlines DC-8 crashed into the Brooklyn section of New York City, and was the world's worst aviation disaster at that time as measured by the number of people killed. The disaster was caused by the poor piloting performance of that DC-8 crew, as was the underlying problem with almost all of the many other deadly crashes that the airline experienced. That disaster, and a series of others involving United Airlines aircraft caused the Federal Aviation Administration to ask one of its most experience inspector pilots to take the assignment to correct the known serious problems at that airline: Rodney Stich. What he discovered and documented about the incompetence and corruption that a long list of United Airlines' crashes possible were many of the same ones involved in the hijackings of four airliners that were so easily hijacked on September 11, 2001.
United Airlines Corrupt Safety Conduct: Half of the Problems
Resulting in Long Series of Aviation Disasters and Deaths
This is what Stich discovered after examining the airline's operations:
The Other Half of the Deadly
Scenario: Incompetence And
Corruption in Government Agency Responsible for Aviation Safety
The other half of the problem resulting in many crashes and many deaths were key people in the Federal Aviation Agency personnel and their incompetence and corruption. Among these problems, which are detailed in Stich's book, History of Aviation Disasters: 1950 to 9/11, included the following examples:
These problems are similar to what exists in other regulatory agencies, such as the agencies overlooking the housing and financial industry, that enabled repeated financial scandals to surface, including the 2008 implosion of the housing and financial industry that had massive financial and personal consequences for millions of people. The only difference is that with the FAA—the Tombstone agency—there is the additional problems of the horror faced by the people as they were about to die.
Sampling of the Horror Enabled by Conduct Of
Key People at United Airlines and FAA
Enormity of the Human Sufferings Motivated
Stich Into Unprecedented Efforts
Inspector Stich has been in military and airline operations for the prior 20 years, first as a Naval Aviator, conducting PBY training or as Patrol Plane Commander in the four-engine privateers and liberators; and then as an international airline captain at several airlines, rated in virtually every aircraft flown by the airlines since the end of World War II. He was horrified at the arrogance and continued violations of the most basic safety requirements despite the repeated horrific consequences from such conduct. Among the actions he took after exhausting the normal procedures in the FAA were the following:
Sampling of Actions to
Halt Corruption-Enabled Aviation
Disasters After Leaving Government
From here the actions taken become very complication, and described in the book, History of Aviation Disasters: 1950 to 9/11. Briefly, however:
Culture Enabled the Hijackings Of
Four Airliners on September 11, 2001
Many other aviation disasters and deaths were enabled by this deep-seated arrogance and culture between what Stich originally exposed and what happened with the hijackings of four airliners on 9/11, including two United Airlines flights. Briefly—
It is interesting to ponder the role that the corruption-enabling actions of a key group of people at United Airlines that infiltrated FAA conduct that Stich documented helped to continue the corruption that would have such brutal effects upon two United Airlines airliners, one of which was crashed into the World Trade Center a couple of miles from the 1960 United Airlines crash into Brooklyn that was also enabled by corrupt actions of certain people—who were never called for their deadly conduct.
Another of the Initial Enablers
Played a Second Enabling Role
Stich had discovered during his overview of United Airlines that personnel of the U.S. Department of Justice knew about the criminal falsifications prior to and enabler of the December 16, 1960 United Airlines crash into New York City and covered up for the deadly crimes. Department of Justice personnel also repeatedly blocked the former federal agent from presenting this information to a federal grand jury and also to federal judges. They even charged Stich with criminal contempt of court for attempting to report these crimes—and many others that he had subsequently discovered from his coalition of intelligence, law enforcement, and aviation safety confidants, and then in the corrupt seizure of the assets that funded his attempts to halt the ongoing corruption-related national tragedies. Obviously, Department of Justice personnel had major enabling blame for the deaths that occurred on 9/11 and the subsequent events.
Wait, There Was Other More Direct
Department of Justice Personnel Enabling Corruption
As described in great detail in the books, Crimes of the FBI-DOJ, Mafia, and al Qaeda, and History of Aviation Disasters: 1950 to 9/11, Department of Justice personnel were receiving advance information on several planned terrorist attacks, including the hijackings of airliners, from a former New York City Mafiosi that had penetrated al Qaeda's primary bomber cell and became a confidant to its head, Ramzi Yousef, This information, more valuable than anything discovered by 16 U.S. intelligence agencies, was deep-sixthed by DOJ hierarchy because of plans to discredit that al Qaeda mole so as to prevent a key FBI supervisor from being charged with multiple murders—and the cover-up of those murders by the Department of Justice hierarchy. That mole later became a confidant to Rodney Stich. Information about this matter in the related books and at the following links:
9/11 Enablers Took Many Forms
There were many other enablers, and far too many to describe in this limited space. Read the books and check the following links:
Let's see, who is remaining that is not implicated, that can be counted on to report this nation-destroying conduct? Zero!
Urgent Need to Control the 9/11 Commission
With the enormity of the corruption and the long list of victims, and with Department of Justice personnel heavily implicated, the system put Department of Justice officials in control of the 9'/11 Commission. Semblance of details at www.defraudingamerica.com/911_commission.com.
Credibility Behind Serious Charges Made By
Former Federal Agent Rodney Stich
Dozens of official government documents with many excerpts
in the book, History of
Aviation Disasters: 1950 to 9/11.
Charges Confirmed by Head of FAA Sky Marshal Program
Report to FAA administrator detailing the specific acts of corruption relating to several aviation disasters, that was cosigned by the original director of the Sky Marshal program. The report in three sections: Part One; Part Two; Part Three.
Evidence Supported by Many Crashes and Many Deaths
The occurrence of
three major aviation
disasters during the several months that Stich acted similar to
an independent prosecutor, each of them due to the exact same problems that
Stich had repeatedly reported and for which he suffered repeated retaliation
by FAA management. Those three crashes and the many deaths were further
evidence that the charges made by Stich were true—and which were also reported by
other FAA inspectors.
Unusual Background, Experience and Credential

FAA airline safety inspector Rodney Stich.
Congress Members' Admission of the Gravity of the Charges
Admissions by several members of Congress that Stich's
charges of gross misconduct in the FAA were serious.
Personal Letter by U.S. Supreme Court Justice Byron White
Personal letter to Stich
by U.S. Supreme Court Justice Byron White stating, "Dear Mr. Stich. As a
single justice I can be of no help to you. I am returning your petition.
Sincerely yours, Byran White." This letter was sent to Stich by the
Supreme Court Justice after submitting a petition providing specific
factual information about the areas of corruption in key government
positions and the national tragedies resulting from the corruption.
Admissions by Federal District and Appellate Judges That Charges were Serious
Admissions by a federal district court judge at San Francisco and an appellate judge during oral hearings at San Francisco, admitting the seriousness of the charges made by Stich in a court filing.
"Mr. Stich, these are serious charges, but they are for Congress to investigate."
Stich responded: "Congress refuses to investigate. But I am not asking you to investigate. I'm here to report the federal crimes to a federal judge as specifically required by Title 18 U.S.C. § 4. In that way I make a record, and when a federal judge performs his or her duty and receives it, that judicial record would required Department of Justice personnel to investigate."
Admissions by Famous Aviation Litigation Lawyers That Charges Were Serious, With Serious Ramifications
Letter by Lee Kreindler, the head of a top aviation litigation firm, responded to Stich's request for help to expose and halt the corruption within the government's agency responsible for aviation safety:
Since we do
share ... a common interest in aviation safety and in view of your
qualifications in this area, I would like to extend an invitation to you
to visit our offices and talk further with us in this area should you
ever have occasion to be in New York.
Stuart M. Speiser wrote:
appreciate the gravity of the situation described in your letter.
In a subsequent letter, Speiser wrote:
We found from
looking over the material that you sent to us that the matter is so
serious and complicated it would be physically impossible for us to do
justice to your positions.
Another attorney, in Denver, wrote:
I wish to warn you once again that you are biting off an awful big piece when you take on United Airlines and the people entrenched in the FAA. As you point out, this thing is getting bigger and bigger all the time ... There are many ramifications that might arise.
attorney was referring to the evidence that I had that certain people at
had engaged in criminal acts and that these actions played major roles
in several major aviation disasters, including the world's worst at that
time. His reference to the matter getting bigger all the time and that
many ramifications would arise was true. For instance, major aviation
disasters, enabled by the corruption, became worse; and as Stich's
exposure actions increased, a

aviation safety agent from reporting corrupt and criminal activities
associated with a series of aviation disasters, and then when that
government agent became a whistleblower seeking to halt the
corruption-enabled consequences, FBI-DOJ personnel charged him with
of court and sentenced him to six months in federal prison for
attempting to report these
crimes against the United Sates that he and his
coalition of other
government agents had discovered initially during their official
government duties; became involved in corruptly seizing the
$10 million in assets
that funded his exposure activities, and from the evidence, was the
powerful source in government orchestrating the 20 years of continual
multiple corrupt schemes to silence him. See book, History of

Great American Tragedies Enabled
Corruption and an "Army" of Enablers
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.
Harm to the American public in non-violent areas.
Harm to the few people in the United States fighting the high-level corruption in a meaningful manner.
Harm inflicted on former federal agent and whistleblower during multiple schemes to silence him.
Sampling of Early Consequences
TWA Flight 800
U.S. Embassy Bombings
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.
One of Over 200 Victims Choosing This Way to
Made Possible by Many Enablers in United States
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.
Remains of a girl—about the age of the 9-year-old Killed in Tucson in January 2011.
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. politicians—supported 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 Afghanistan—with the help of a dumbed-down American public that is mostly too lazy to learn the truth.
All of the books are available at amazon.com, in print and on the Kindle, and at many other Internet sites. They bring together the various pieces of the puzzle to better understand the overall picture, and why the same conditions continue year after year.
