Critical Difference in Types of Whistleblower
The term, "whistle-blower," refers to a person who exposes some type of abuse, wrongdoing, or worse. What some "whistle-blowers" expose are more mundane, such as government contractors over-billing the government. Then there are the those who report more serious matters. And then there are those whistleblowers who report hardcore criminal or corrupt activities that result in great harm, or death, to people or to national security, and who are then targeted and suffer grave personal and financial harm. This last group is ignored by the various whistleblower groups.
The different categories of "whistleblowers" include, for instance:
Those who report abuses such as overcharges by corporations dealing with the government. They usually do it for profit, which results from receiving a part of the money the government retrieves back from the overcharging corporation. That would include Bunnatine Greenhouse who exposed the overcharging by defense contractor Halliburton.
Those who report product dangers, such as Jeffrey Wigand who exposed what was already well known for years the cover-up by tobacco companies of the smoking dangers.
Those "whistle-blowers" who object to being blocked from performing a duty as a government employee, who have a conscience. They might be complaining about poor performance of their superiors, waste in government. That would include people such as Marsha Coleman-Adebayo who exposed problems in the EPA.
The "whistle-blowers" that the public never hears about is the one who exposes matters of grave misconduct involving people in key government positions, and which has already made possible serious injuries or deaths, or harm to national security.
Even the paid leaders of various whistleblower groups won't represwent or even acknowledge the corruption-exposing whistleblowers. To do so requires confronting powerful groups in government, and that can threaten their jobs. Former federal agent Rodney Stich, exposing the most deadly and continuing corruption in the most powerful positions in the U.S. government, couldn't get a response from whistleblower groups during a 30-year period. As with every other person or group that contributed to covering up the corruption that Stich revealed to them, they were now at risk of exposure for not responding to the earlier notice when the corruption continued to inflict great harm that could have possibly been prevented if they had responded.
In May 2007, for Whistle-Blower Week, a convention was held in the nation's capital for whistle-blowers. As usual, those "whistle-blowers" who sought to expose hardcore corrupt and criminal activities in government offices, and who suffered severe retaliation, were notably absent.
Presiding over this group was the Government Accountability Project headed by a lawyer, Tom Devine. He, as many other paid employees in whistleblower organizations, avoided any reference to those who really stuck their necks out and suffered major personal and financial losses from a corrupt misuse of government power by corrupt higher management personnel. Their record indicates a greater interest in receiving their pay as managers and doing nothing to address the hardcore corruption being exposed by the really courageous whistle-blowers and ignoring the misuse of government power to silence the person.
Constant Media Praising of Trivial Acts Or
Normal Responsibilities as Heroic,
Including Trivial Sports
In America, where media portrays as heroes, baseball players, golf players, and people caught in planes that were hijacked and who sat paralyzed in their seats, someone who performs their job responsibilities could understandably be called "heroes."
In a 2002 Time article titled, " Persons of the Year for 2002," the magazine named three people as outstanding persons of the year: Cynthia Cooper, an auditor at World Com, who informed the WorldCom board of directors about the fraudulent bookkeeping that was hiding huge losses. Sherron Watkins, a corporate officer at Enron, who warned Chairman Kenneth Lay in 2001 of accounting irregularities. Staff attorney Coleen Rowley in the Minneapolis office, who made a report to FBI Director Robert Mueller, after the 9/11 airline hijackings, and after she was ready to retire, stating that FBI management in Washington had failed to take action on information provided by the Minneapolis, Minnesota field office. (Where was she prior to 9/11 when she knew this information?)
An article in the New Republic (June 4, 2007), titled, "Blowing in the Wind: The strange Cult of the Washington whistle-blower," continued the practice of avoiding any mention of those whistle-blowers sitting in prison on false charges, or who suffered grievous personal and financial losses as a result of exposing corruption that resulted in many deaths or major harm to national interests.
The New Republic article described Department of Energy whistleblower Joe Carson, who first blew the whistle on safety violations at Tennessee's Oak Ridge lab in 1992, and made subsequent reports, and who claimed a record as he stated, "Anybody want to match that record?"
America has a host of real heroes, not the ball players that Americans adore, but those former federal agents who suffer greatly for attempting to report corruption, some of it deadly, that they had discovered during their official and professional duties.
The various books listed at this site describe the plight of those former insiders, former federal agents, who put the lives of the American public ahead of their own, and who then paid the awesome consequences.
Wall Street Journal article (December 24, 2002) by Forbes writer Dan Ackman made reference to the Times article, stating:
By what criteria did Times pick Sherron Watkins? A former vice president at Enron, she was selected as part of a trio of “whistleblowers,” along with Coleen Rowley, an FBI staff attorney, and Cynthia Cooper, an accountant at WorldCom. But Ms. Watkins was no whistleblower and she had no impact. In fact, she looks like Time’s worst choice ever.
What Times calls “the black comedy of corporate fraud” had many authors. Managers, board members, stock analysts, bankers, lawyers and accountants all played a part. But whistleblowers? They were most conspicuous by their absence. Take Enron. As it burned, analysts and auditors fiddled. To be sure there were accountants insider Author Andersen who questioned Enron’s books. But they stayed inside, as did Ms. Watkins. Time notes that she “wrote a letter to chairman Kenneth Lay in the summer of 2001 warning him that the company’s methods of accounting were improper.” But she remained in the shadows until 2002. That’s when her “warnings” were unveiled, not by her, but by congressional investigators.
A whistleblower is someone who spots a criminal inside a bank and alerts the police. That’s not Sherron Watkins. What she did was write a memo to the bank robber (Mr. Lay) suggesting he was about to be caught and warning him to watch out. In response, he met with her, told her he didn’t think he was robbing the bank, but assuring her he’d launch an investigation. Mr. Law put his law firm, Vinson & Elkins, on the case. The lawyers didn’t’ talk to Mr. Lay or to Jeffrey Skilling, the departed CEO. On Oct. 15, 2001, Vinson & Elkins issued a report concluding that the facts didn’t warrant an investigation. A day later, Enron restated its financials, the first step in the chain of events that led to bankruptcy. Through it all, Ms. Watkins said zip. Many others did nothing as well, but none of them are “Person of the year.”
After her warning became famous, Ms. Watkins was hailed as a “whistleblower” by the press and members of Congress, hungry for a hero in a story littered with villains. But when called to testify she provided cover for Mr. Lay, who she said was duped. And she heaped blame on Arthur Andersen, Vinson & Elkins, and Mr. Skilling, whose resignation in August 2001 was more of a warning than any ever uttered by her. Watkins stayed on the job until [November 2002], when she quit to become a consultant on corporate governance.
A similar article in the New York Times (December 24, 2002) by Paul Krugman made similar statements. He brought out that the FBI promoted the official who Ms. Rowley identified as blocking an investigation, and who “then received a special presidential award.” The article described the promises made by top White House figures shortly after the events of September 11, “But that once the political danger had passed, all those promises” were ignored.
The pilot of an airliner that lost power to each of its engines is repeatedly praised as a hero for choosing to place his aircraft onto the only flat surface in the area, the Hudson River, rather than the alternate of crashing the aircraft into tall buildings. A ten-hour student pilot would have done the same, land on a flat surface! Passengers in a hijacked aircraft are called heroes for cringing in their seats. They deserve sympathy, but please, not heroes!
Media Personnel Acting the
Reverse of "Persons of the Year"
The same Times personnel eulogizing the Persons of the Year, and other media personnel and media groups, had repeatedly blocked corrupt activities being reported by courageous insiders, and they repeatedly covered up for the corruption and the retaliation heaped upon these government personnel. There is some irony in these media personnel who for years covered up for corrupt activities in government, some of the results being deadly, to now praise the three as Persons of the Year.
Never Recognized are Whistle-Blowers in David vs. Goliath Battles
With Power Elite in Government Whose Corrupt Acts
Enabled Repeated National Tragedies
Whistle-blowers, those who have reported at great risk, hardcore corruption that inflicted great harm, even death, to many people, and great harm to national security, and who then suffered great personal and financial harm, have been repeatedly ignored by the media. One reason could be that the same media people covering up for the high-level corruption can't now recognize the actions of non-cowards seeking to report when they have been covering up. A sampling of them are at the following links:
Congress had passed watered-down whistle-blower legislation in prior years, but federal courts had refused to recognize its provisions, and in 2004, the Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that
Whistleblower Protection Act of 1989, and the Intelligence Community Whistleblower Protection Act of 1998, were legislated to protect government agents who exposed misconduct in government. But a federal judge in 1999 eliminated the protection intended by the legislation by ruling that government employees are not protected from retaliation if the information they provide meets the judge’s determination of irrefutable evidence of wrongdoing. That vague requirement would be difficult to prove without the guilty admitting their wrong.
Prior to that ruling, about thirty percent of cases by whistle-blowers that went to the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB) were successful. After that, only about seven percent. Those who lost—and many who prevailed—suffered in various ways: demotions, transfers, losing security clearances, or fired.
Supreme Court Justices' Attacks Upon Whistleblowers
Five justices of the U.S. Supreme Court issued a decision in Garcetti v. Ceballos, 128 S.Ct. 1951 (May 30, 2006) that 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. 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 Garcetti v. Ceballos 5-4 decision, voided for courageous government employees the prior legal and constitutional protections against retaliation when the employee reports corrupt or criminal actions of other government personnel.
In Garcetti v. Ceballos, the employee who suffered the retaliation was simply preparing a report that was part of his official duty. He was an assistant district attorney who prepared a report that identified fraud in an affidavit used to request a search warrant by a sheriff deputy.
Management didn't like the report (they wanted the corrupt acts covered up), which was accurate in its facts relating to a sheriff deputy placing false information into a sworn affidavit, and therefore retaliated against him. Management wanted him to either leave out the information and thereby falsify the official report and protect a government employee engaging in fraud.
Justice Kennedy, writing for the majority, engaged in obfuscation, sidestepping the fact that h4e was making a required report, entering factual information that displeased the culture that protected corruption. It wasn't a matter of being a whistleblower; he merely quietly prepared and filed the report. What management wanted him to do is falsify the facts, and thereby protect a guilty employee. This corrupt practice exists all the time, and was one that I discovered in the government's aviation safety offices, which had the effect of being being cremated alive and dismembered alive in airline disasters that were made possible by the arrogance and corruption in these offices.
The Supreme Court's majority opinion was written by Justice Anthony Kennedy, which made into law an earlier action by Kennedy while he was a U.S. court of appeals judge in the Ninth Circuit at San Francisco and after he was appointed to the Supreme Court.
Momentous Decision With Grave Consequences
Referring to the Ceballos decision, a Los Angeles Times article stated:
Limiting citizen use of government data sets new standard.
In a ruling with potentially broad implications, a federal judge said Thursday that the Bush administration could use espionage laws to prosecute private citizens who gain access to national defense information.
The decision appears to be the first sin which a court has found that citizens other than government employees can be charged for receiving and disclosing secret government information, experts said.
"It's a momentous ruling with radical implications," said Steven Aftergood, who heads the Project on Government secrecy for the Federal of American Scientists. "A lot of people who are in the business of gathering information, such ass reporters and advocates, are now going to have to grapple with the potential threat of prosecution. The dividing line has always been between leakers, who may be prosecuted, and the recipients of the leak, who have never been. Now that dividing line has been erased.
At the same time, legal experts said, it could chill the ability of a broad segment of the public-including academics and journalists-to learn about the inner workings of government and expose misconduct or controversial programs of public interest.
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).
Insider's documented charges against Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court.
Legislation in the Works
The House passed Whistle-blower legislation in March 2007, which was then stalled in the Senate.
The judges of the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in a May 30, 2006, decision that government power can be used to retaliate against anyone in government exposing corruption, and that includes corruption subverting the United States. That decision is known as Garcetti v. Ceballos, 128 S.Ct. 1951.
In 2007, the Senate was ready to vote on a whistleblower bill to provide protection to government whistleblowers, but Senator Tom Coburn of Oklahoma raised objections, and the vote was blocked. By a very undemocratic rule, any senator can raise objection to further vote on a bill. (A prior Oklahoma senator, Senator David Boren, chairman of the aviation subcommittee, also blocked actions that would result in many preventable airline tragedies, as detailed in the book, History of Aviation Disasters: 1950 to 9/11.)
Stich ran into this while he was a federal air safety agent as a vote was about to be taken to investigate the FAA. That one vote kept the lid on the scandal that had already taken many lives, and would take many more in the years ahead.
Upon hearing of Senator Coburn's action, Stich sent a letter to him, with copies to the other members of the Senate judiciary committee, objecting to the hold and giving examples of how urgent the legislation was. (MS Word) (Adobe PDF)
There should be another name for those foolish people in government who attempt to protect the people and the country who seek to report and expose corruption of those in key government positions who have control of all forms of retaliatory power. What is needed is meaningful legislation that corrupt judges cannot make meaningless.
Longest Continuing Whistleblower in Concert
With the Greatest Numbers of
Very probably, the longest, continuously active, whistleblower, is former federal agent Rodney Stich. He had fought a continuing David vs Goliath battle exposing deep-seated corruption that made possible a continuing series of airline disasters, including the hijackings of four airliners on 9/11. Not only had he persisted years longer than any other known whistleblower, had not only reported more corrupt and criminal activities, corruption that inflicted greater harm upon more people and upon more national interests than any other whistleblower, but he suffered greater personal and financial harm than any stated in any media article.
After being given the assignment to correct the conditions causing or enabling to occur a series of major airline disasters, as a government aviation safety inspector-investigator discovered a culture of arrogance and corruption that prevented the government safety agencies from performing their responsibilities.
In the period from approximately 1955 to 1978, the United States experienced a continuing series of airline disasters, some occurring every few months. Stich left his position as an airline captain in 1962 and became a federal aviation safety inspector-investigator for the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), responsible for all aspects of safety at the airlines.
Among his duties were conducting oral examinations an flight checks of airline pilots, issuing ratings to fly a specific type of airline aircraft, conducting enroute checks of the crew's performance, looking for safety problems and safety violations, and making reports and recommendations to prevent airline disasters.
In response to the deep-seated arrogance and corruption in certain key government aviation safety offices, that he discovered, reported, and documented, that were resulting in a continuing series of airline crashes and deaths, included the following efforts:
Filed an endless series of reports on safety problems, violations of federal safety requirements, at an airline that had considerable control over the government's aviation safety responsibilities: United Airlines. At that time, United Airlines experienced more fatal airline crashes than all the other U.S. airlines combined. The response was criticism for filing the reports, removal of the office typeewriter, assignment to non-safety duties, removal from the check flights of known unsafe senior pilots, and constant harassment.
Reported the deadly problems to FAA personnel at the regional office in Los Angeles, including while the crashes were continuing. The response was an increase in the harassment and retaliation.
He exercised the law in such a manner that he conducted a court-like hearings for about four months, obtaining sworn testimony from FAA officials and developing additional documentation supporting his position that United Airlines was repeatedly violating major federal air safety requirements that resulted in a string of fatal airline crashes, and that key FAA management was preventing federal safety inspectors from carrying out their safety responsibilities. During these hearings, three additional major airline disasters occurred, each one caused by the very same problems that Stich had repeatedly reported. The hearings, conducted by a the Executive Director of the FAA, a lawyer, William Jennings. Despite the three additional fatal crashes during the hearing, Jennings covered up, insuring that the corruption, the safety problems and safety violations, and the crashes and deaths would continue. Which they did, for many years thereafter. Jennings later became director of aviation safety at the Airline Passengers Association
Reported the problems to high management at the National Transportation Safety Board (then the CAB Bureau of Air Safety), and was told that they already knew of the problems. Those contacts were followed by years of cover-up and altered accident investigation reports by the political NTSB board.
Repeatedly reported the problems to members of Congress, who admitted the gravity of the charges and who then covered up.
Repeatedly reported the problems to the FBI and other Department of Justice offices, including the perjury at the hearings. They stonewalled and covered up for the safety and criminal violations.
Circumvented the DOJ block and appeared before a federal grand jury in Denver, only to be blocked by the U.S. attorney.
Sent a report to the FAA administrator, who then covered up.
These cover-ups caused Stich to leave government service. As the crashes from the corruption continued, he continue his exposure actions as a private citizen.
Published his first book in 1978 seeking to circumvent the cover-ups, being the first edition of Unfriendly Skies, which is now in the fifth edition and called, History of Aviation Disasters; 1950 to 9/11s.
In 1978, he started appearing as guest and expert on radio and television shows, and by 2001, he had appeared on over 3,000 shows.
The publication of that first book, and his frequent radio-TV appearances, caused other former and present government personnel to contact him with information and documentation on corruption in other government offices and covert operations that they had either discovered or were part of. These government insiders included agents of the CIA, ONI, DEA, Customs, Secret Service, FAA. Over a period of years, other insiders contacted him with detailed information, including former drug smuggler carrying out drug smuggling activities for government personnel and former Mafia figures.
In 1978, he filed the first of several lawsuits against the FAA and NTSB, seeking to report the corrupt and criminal activities related to a series of fatal airline crashes. In every case, Department of Justice attorneys filed motions to block the reports and to dismiss the lawsuits. During the first two of these lawsuits, federal judges at the district and appellate levels admitted the gravity of the charges, and then blocked Stich from making the reports. Stich appealed each of these decisions to the U.S. Supreme Court, where the justices refused to hear the cases despite the felony implications of the obstruction of justice dismissals. These dismissals, and subsequent ones, continued in effect the corruption that was responsible for the conditions enabling four groups of terrorists to hijack four airliners on 9/11.
As Stich learned of other criminal activities in other areas of government from the many government agents and insiders who came to him, he attempted several times to report them to federal judges, just as he had tried to do with the federal crimes related to airline disasters. These reports were being made under the mandatory requirements of the federal crime reporting statute, and under the right of any citizen to report corruption in government as provided by Title 28 U.S.C. § 1361.
The first of these actions was filed in the federal courts at Sacramento, California, and assigned to U.S. District Judge Milton Schwartz. At the first hearing, he admitted the gravity of the charges and urged Stich to have a lawyer help him to present the information. Suddenly, a week later, without the required notice of hearing, violating due process requirements, and violating the criminal statute that required a federal judge to receive information of a criminal act as part of the judge's administrative (not judicial) duties, he issued an order dismissing the attempt to report the crimes, and simultaneously issuing an unlawful and unconstitutional order permanently barring Stich from filing any paper in any federal court. That order blocked the reporting of the federal crimes, being obstruction of justice, and blocked Stich from exercising other federal defenses against parallel actions being taken to halt his exposure activities.
As Stich continued to receive information of federal crimes from the continuing number of government agents and other insiders, he again sought to report them to the federal court at Sacramento. In response, federal judges not only blocked Stich from making these reports, but with U.S. Attorney David Levi, charged Stich with criminal contempt of court, relying upon the orders permanently barring Stich from filing any papers in any federal court. Stich was denied a jury trial, abandoned by his attorney, and sentenced to six months in federal prison. That prison sentenced was approved by the court of appeals judges in San Francisco, including Judge Anthony Kennedy as he was waiting to take his seat on the U.S. Supreme Court, and relief denied by the Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court. U.S. Attorney David Levi was later appointed to a judge in the same Sacramento federal courts. Their actions had deadly ripple effects on September 11, 2001, as the continuing problems in the government's aviation safety offices enabled terrorists to easily hijack four airliners, despite warnings of the impending hijackings.
While in prison, federal judges ordered the seizure and liquidation of the $10 million in real estate assets that had funded Stich's extensive exposure activities. These orders violated the due process requirements of a hearing, notice of hearing, and legal cause. Under decisions of the U.S. Supreme Court, such orders are forever void, and all orders based upon them are void.
Disregarding the prior prison sentence, shortly before the 9/11 hijackings, Stich again sought to report the corrupt and criminal activities in the government's aviation safety offices (that enabled the terrorists to hijack the four airliners) and the corrupt and criminal activities in the FBI and CIA that prevented agents from acting on the evidence of the planned hijackings. That action was filed in the federal courts at Reno, Nevada. Again, the federal judge, Edward C. Reed, blocked Stich from making the reports.
After 9/11, Stich again sought to report to a federal judge the criminal activities that created the conditions enabling the 9/11 hijackings to occur, filing that action in the federal courts in New York City where most of the 9/11 litigation was filed. Following months of violating numerous filing requirements, that lawsuit was dismissed without a hearing. Appeals to the court of appeals and then to the U.S. Supreme Court resulted in further cover-ups.
Because of the extreme gravity of the corruption and consequences, and the endemic cover-ups by the system, in 2007, Stich, at the age of 84, no longer expects the system to work, or for the apathetic public to show some basic sign of outrage.
The record on the nation's longest-lasting whistle-blower shows the futility of anyone to speak out. During the entire 40 years of efforts, Stich reported the corruption, the deadly consequences, the retaliation, to the ACLU, members of Congress. and media people. None responded. The paid members of the various various whistleblower groups appeared more interested in maintaining their position and salaries rather than become involved where they would have to show some initiative and courage,
Also doing nothing were the millions of Americans who heard Stich during his radio and TV appearances, and who read his books. They also became complicit by their indifference or support for the guilty. And some, suffered the final consequences in the various airline disasters, including those described in Unfriendly Skies: 20th & 21st Centuries, and on 9/11, as described in Blowback, 9/11, and Cover-Ups.
Are Present or Former Government Agents
Fools for Attempting to Protect the People?
The facts show that the answer to that is an obvious "yes!" In instance after instance, and as shown in the books, those government agents knowingly endured great personal and financial harm. For some, their noble efforts resulted in death of life in prison.
They foolishly sought to inform the public of the Trojan horse-type of corruption responsible for many forms of human tragedies, and for subverting the country. They faced, by themselves the wrath of those in control of great government power that would be used against them. Each of them thought that the American public would respond, and that at least one of the many government and non-government checks and balances would protect them.
If nothing else, they are America's unsung and ignored martyrs.

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 Die—

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. 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.
