50-Year History of American Tragedies
And the Enabling Misconduct

No other modern industrial nation has experienced the  half century of tragedies, individual and mass catastrophic, as the United States. The behind-the-scene causes for them have been carefully withheld from the American people. This is the home page of a documentary of endemic high-level corruption, continuing series of resulting tragedies, and the American public's role as final enablers. 

The heavily supported information here played major direct or enabling role in many of America's harmful events since the 1950. The misconduct of key of key personnel throughout government had major enabling roles in a series of terrorist successes, starting in 1988, through 9/11, and the colossal increase in people wanting to kill Americans.

To understand the enormous problems endemic in key offices of the U.S. government requires more than reading from a small hand-held device, or a 140-character article. If you can't go beyond that stage, this site is

Credibility Information


This information is provided by Captain Rodney Stich, whose unique activities involving aviation, government  intrigue, and foreign affairs, started in 1940 when he joined the U.S. Navy, a year before the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. He was the youngest Navy Patrol Plane Commander in World War II, an international airline captain, a corruption fighter, with decades of credibility, including  an unprecedented response from highly respected U.S. Supreme Court Justice Byron White. (www.defraudingamerica.com/white_letter_index.)


70 years of action packed experiences as during World War II; as an international airline captain sharing the cockpit of Japan Airline aircraft with former Japanese wartime navy pilots; flying Muslim pilgrims from throughout the Middle East to the holy cities of Mecca and Medina during the Hajj pilgrimage; caught in a CIA-engineered revollution in Iran, that started destabilizing the Middle East; a federal airline safety inspector given the official life-and-death-assignment to halt the deadly misconduct at a politically-powerful airline; becoming the national focal point for dozens of key insiders with knowledge of major corruption in government; and becoming an unprecedented in American history corruption fighter, exposing and attempting to halt the corruption that enabled decades of American tragedies.


Details of what he and his group of several dozen other key insiders discover during several decades are found in the 20-plus print and eBooks that Captain Stich  wrote, can be obtained at www.amazon.com.

History of Catastrophic Type American Tragedies

The supporting information and documentation at this site is the product of several dozen former professionals in covert and law enforcement operations, gathered together by the longest corruption fighter, Captain Rodney Stich. The ramifications of the information go far beyond the related tragedies, with a direct effect upon the lives of the American people and the lawfulness of key people in the three branches of the federal government. Samples and supporting evidence follows:

Years of Horrific Fraud-Enabled Aviation Disasters

Years of fraud-enabled aviation disasters, starting in  the 1960s and continuing at a continuing pace for many years, before other factors compensation for the corruption. The discoveries started with one segment of the FAA giving FAA airline safety inspector the unprecedented life-and-death-assignment to halt the corruption at a major politically-powerful airline and at a local FAA office. Thousands of deaths became involved with the truth carefully withheld from the victims' families and the American public. (Details in History of Aviation Disasters: 1950 to 9/11.)

Pan Am Flight 103 Bombing Over Lockerbie,
And DOJ Lying to the American people

DOJ corruption related to the Pan Am Flight 103 Lockerbie bombing. FBI-DOJ personnel planted evidence to shift blame for bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie from guilty parties, in Iran and Syria, to two innocent Libyans and Libya, with further consequences.  (See book, History of Aviation Disasters: 1950 to 9/11.)

Forewarned World Trade Center Bombing

The 1993 World Trade Center bombing, due to a combination of FBI personnel incompetence and retaliation against a female FBI agent who, with her source in the al Qaeda group, provided advance information of the planned bombing, the name of some of the people constructing the bomb, and the Jersey City self-storage location where the bomb was being fabricated. See the book, Crimes of the FBI-DOJ, Mafia, and al Qaeda.

Mafiosi Mole in Al Qaeda Cell Providing
Advance Information on Series of  Planned al Qaeda Attacks
That Could Have Prevented 9/11

Deep-sixing advance information of al Qaeda attacks provided by a mole inside an al Qaeda cell to protect public discovery of FBI-DOJ murders in the New York City offices, which blocked preventative measures to be taken. The forewarned terrorist attacks upon U.S. targets then occurred, with the loss of almost 4,000 lives.

That mole became one  of several dozen confidants to corruption fighting whistleblower, Captain Rodney Stich.

Details in the books, Crimes of the FBI-DOJ, Mafia, and al Qaeda; Terrorism and Deadliest Enabling Scandals of 21st Century; and History of Aviation Disasters: 1950 to 9/11.

Immediate consequences of the above deep-sixing misconduct were the following catastrophic events:

Forewarned Downing of TWA Flight 800
|And FBI-CIA-NTSB Personnel Cover-Ups

Downing of TWA Flight 800. The first forewarned attack occurred several weeks after FBI personnel were notified by Gregory and his attorney that a U.S. airliner departing nearby JFK airport would be downed. TWA Flight 800 was downed shortly after departing New York City's JFK Airport. That downing required falsification of evidence by Department of Justice employees; and CIA employees. In an earlier book by Rodney Stich, the 4th edition of Unfriendly Skies, this falsification was clearly described. The  latest updated book is called, History of Aviation Disasters: 1950 to 9/11.


Forewarned Bombings of U.S. Embassies

After the downing of TWA Flight 800, the perpetrators of the deep-sixing withholding of information on planned al Qaeda attacks saw the consequences of their acts. If they now made known the information on  the next attacks, the deaths in Flight 800 would be blamed on their criminal cover-up scheme. The deep-sixing continued. The bombings of U.S. Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania then occurred, with hundreds of deaths and hundreds of injuries. Another cover-up had to occur.

Forewarned and Easily Preventable Hijackings
Of Four U.S. Airliners on September 11, 2001

The last of the forewarned al Qaeda attacks occurred on September 11, 2001for which preventative measures were withheld. Four U.S. airliners were simultaneously hijacked and flown into buildings, except for one that was flown into the ground. Nearly 3,000 people died in probably the most horrific of any prior aviation disaster.


The corrupt actions of large numbers of FBI and other Department of Justice employees were primarily responsible for these deaths. Not to diminish from the gravity of their corrupt acts, but the culture in the Federal Aviation Administration played a role in that crash, an understanding of which can be found in the book, History of Aviation Disasters: 1950 to 9/11.


It was the corruption in that agency which FAA inspector Rodney Stich discovered, while trying to carry out his assignment to halt that corruption, that changed his life, and started his 50 years of exposing corruption-resulting great tragedies.

DOJ Personnel's Deep-Sixing of Advance Information Resulted In
Worst Series of Terrorist Attacks in the Nation's History

The consequences from the deep-sixing of advance information on planned al Qaeda attacks resulted in an initial 4,000 deaths, constituting the initial consequences of the worst series of terrorist attacks in the nation's history. The standard culture of corruption then included placing Department of Justice personnel in the 9/11 Commission to prevent this information being cited in the report, as well as the less direct but major enabling role of the FAA culture.


DOJ Personnel Falsified the 9/11 Commission Report

It was now necessary to prevent the public from learning about the criminal acts of key people in the nation's highest law enforcement agency. DOJ personnel involved in the deep-sixing of the advance information of the initial terrorist attacks, including the 9/11 hijackings, were then placed in controlling positions in the 9/11 Commission. The information about the corrupt conduct in  the nation's highest law enforcement group, that made possible the nation's worst series of terrorist attacks in its history, was kept from the public. At least, for a while.


Widespread Cover-Ups by U.S. Politicians

Cover-ups were also necessary by many members of Congress. For years, corruption fighting whistleblower, Captain Rodney Stich, with the help of dozens of confidants who were formerly key members of such government agencies as the CIA, ONI, DEA, Customs, had notified members of Congress of the corrupt conduct in the Department of Justice, the CIA, and the FAA, with specific examples and the resulting consequences. (These are described in such books as Defrauding America; Drugging America; History of Aviation Disasters: 1950 to 9/11 (and its four predecessor books known as Unfriendly Skies), and other books.)


For a sampling of the communications reporting these corrupt activities: www.defraudingamerica.com/letter_list_index. Stich also reported these matters in federal lawsuits. Also, letter list index.


Culture of Corruption Enabled Enormous
Enlargement of Tragedies

International Consequences from Corrupt Conduct of U.S. Ruling Oligarchy started immediately after the 9/11 attacks, showing the culture of arrogance and corruption that had been reported to the American public for decades—without any reaction.


Deadly U.S. Invasion of Afghanistan

U.S. politicians ordered the invasion of Afghanistan on the argument that the Taliban government was complicit in the 9/11 hijackings, which shifted attention from the primary enablers in key government positions in the United States.

Deadly U.S. Invasion of Iraq

U.S. politicians ordered the invasion of Iraq by lying about Iraq's role in the 9/11 hijackings, and killing tens of thousands of people in the process. Serial lying by U.S. politicians to use as a pretense to invade Iraq and Afghanistan, killing tens of thousands of innocent people.

Brutal Treatment of People Angry About U.S. Brutalities
In the Middle East

After the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq, virtually everyone in the Middle East became an enemy of the  United States. U.S. politicians then considered it proper to kill them, and justifying the murder via drones of anyone near them, or the medical personnel coming to their rescue.

Culture of Murdering Innocents Via Drones

U.S. Worldwide Murders by Drones

U.S. politicians had initiated murders by drones throughout the world, against anyone angry about U.S. brutalities in their area. These attacks started in 2004 under President W. Bush (Jr.) after his series of lies preceded his ordered deadly invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq. The invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq, killing and maiming tens of thousands, were war crimes under international law, so the criminality from murders through the use of drones was a relatively minor matter, in their eyes. Calling them war crimes was Amnesty International.

Starting in 2004, U.S. politicians ordered hundreds of attacks in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Yemen. Following the standard pattern, U.S. politicians first denied the extent of the murders by drones. At the time of this writing, there have been a reported one thousand people killed by drones, including over 200 children. The murders are carried out by CIA or military personnel sitting at monitors in the United States, including in Nevada.

Every murderous drone strike generate many more people justifiably angry at the United States, and wanting to kill Americansin addition to the millions that had already reached that stage after the U.S. murderous attacks on Afghanistan and Iraq.

Even U.S. citizens were targeted and killed. Naturally, there was never any trial or fact-finding commission to establish that the victims had committed any crime, or that anger toward the U.S. for its many crimes was justification to murder them. Obviously, innocent people  not listed as targets were also repeatedly killed. U.S. personnel executing t he attacks even fired at and killed medical personnel coming to the aid of the wounded and screaming victims.

In addition to murder by drones being a crime, the murders violated the  territorial integrity of the nations where the drones exploded.  The Peshawar High Court in Pakistan ruled that the drone attacks were illegal, inhumane, and violated the UN charter on human rights, as well as constituting a war crime.

By the System, headed by FBI-DOJ Personnel, and Judiciary

The greatest source of direct personal and financial harm and civil rights violations arise from the misconduct of employees in the U.S. Department of Justice.

DOJ Personnel's Practice of False Charges

False charges against innocent people, especially sham drug charges, often using known perjured testimony, sometimes planted evidence, or set up using confidential informants. This practice often results in financial ruin for the victims, long prison sentences, sometimes life in prison, destroyed families and lives. Anyone can be easily set up. See books, Defrauding America; America's Corrupt War on Drugsand the People (formerly called Drugging America).

FBI-DOJ personnel involved in years of murders of U.S. citizens, with organized crime and Mafia figures. Examples: In Boston offices, with the James "Whitey" Bulger mob, and in New York City offices, with the Mafia capo known as "the killing machine." Over 40 murders committed over several decades while the murderers were paid by FBI-DOJ and given immunity. (As detailed in the book, Crimes of the FBI-DOJ, Mafia, and al Qaeda; and Terrorism and Deadliest Enabling Scandals of 21st Century.)

The series of scandals with their catastrophic consequences were too serious for America's ruling oligarchy to allow the American public to know. Nothing of this nature had ever been exposed, and public reaction to such a major series of events, involving so many leaders in and out of government, could not be anticipated. Were the details known to the American public, it could be expected that:

  • Confidence in government leaders, or even the form of government, would be gravely undermined.

  • Many members of Congress could be removed from office.

  • Confidence in the nation's highest law enforcement agency, the U.S. Department of Justice, would be undermined, and considered similar to a criminal organization used for political purposes.

  • Confidence and respect for federal judges would suffer.|

  • The respect for Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court and their decisions would plunge.

  • Media people and media corporation would be recognized by the people as puppets for the powerful ruling  oligarchy.

  • Government investigations, such as the 9/11 Commission, would be recognized as being easily manipulated by the guilty in government.

Details and evidence of the above can be found in almost all of Stich's books, but particularly:

  • Terrorism and Deadliest Enabling Scandals of 21st Century.

  • History of Aviation Disasters: 1950 to 9/11. (Lots more than aviation disasters.)

  • Crimes of the FBI-DOJ, Mafia, and al Qaeda.

  • America's Corrupt War on Drugs.

All of the above, are only the latest of 40 years of arrogant and corrupt conduct that directly inflicted, or enabled, great harm upon the American people, including deaths and catastrophic consequences. All of  these corrupt acts and consequences were known to personnel in the such government entities as the nation's various intelligence agencies, such as the National Security Agency (NSA); federal judges; Supreme Court Justices; members of Congress; and media personnel and media corporations.

They all became enablers of the harm inflicted upon the people. Sadly, even large numbers of the same American public who knew of the corruption, and did nothing, became enablers. The American public will continue to do nothing, even after reading these heavily documented matters.

  • Standard practice of filing sham criminal charges to silence government whistleblowers.

  • Engineered and protected a coalition engaged in sham lawsuits against former FAA inspector Rodney Stich in a bizarre pattern of corrupt and prohibited legal actions that was an attempt to halt his exposure of ongoing hardcore corruption resulting in multiple continuing national tragedies. Details and documentation in almost all of the books, but especially in History of Aviation Disasters: 1950 to 9/11; and Defrauding America.

Sampling of Recent Attacks Upon Whistleblowers
That Expose Documents Revealing Government Misconduct

In the past, present and former government agents attempting to expose and halt harmful corruption that they discovered in covert and overt government operations were dealt with by filing false charges or using the immense power of the U.S. Department of Justice against the person. This occurred against the granddaddy of corruption reporting whistleblowers, and continued without letup for many years.


In 2012 and 2013, the documented-exposing whistleblowers, Army private Bradley Manning; WikiLeaks editor Julian Assange, and Edward Snowden, were given publicity by foreign media sources, and that made the American public aware of the long-standing but not publicized tactics to keep the American public unaware of this practice that has had deadly consequences. (During these many years, members of Congress and the media corporations kept the lid on this can of worms.)

Private Manning: Private Manning exposed major international crimes ordered by top personnel in the United States, including hundreds of brutal murders and other information the people should know. These included:

For revealing these crimes, Private Manning was sentenced to 35 years in prison—after first being subjected for months to brutal conditions.

WikiLeaks Director Julian Assange: Assange, a citizen in another country, received the information from Private Manning, along with similar material sent to other media outlets. The classified material that Assange released related to the corrupt acts, including nearly 60,000 deaths, international crimes that were classified. As a foreign journalist, he was under no law that prohibited the information about crimes of U.S. politicians and others. Years earlier, Daniel Ellsberg released documents marked Secret revealing the corrupt acts of U.S. politicians and military brass that made possible the nearly 60,000 deaths of U.S. military personnel and thousands of maimed soldiers in the U.S. invasion of Vietnam. Decades later, the American public still has not recognized the tragedies from crime perpetrators in government classifying documents and punishing courageous and patriotic corruption-exposing whistleblowers.

Edward Snowden. Snowden, an employee in Hawaii of National Security Agency Booz Allen Hamilton, became concerned about the serious misconduct in the nation's secret surveillance of American citizens, and revealed these secrets to the American people. That informationspying on the American people as was never done before, and clearly unconstitutional, and indicative of a serious culture by the ruling oligarchy in the United States, caused a national uproar.

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.

More Information on the Criminal Deep-Sixing of Advance Information
Of al Qaeda Attacks that Enabled the Nation's Worst Series
Of Catastrophic Events—With No End in Sight!

This first example of how corrupt acts by powerful bureaucrats—protected by powerful personnel in other branches of governmentinsured the success of the first series of catastrophic al Qaeda attacks. These corrupt acts by high-level employees in the U.S. Department of Justice initially killed nearly 4,000 people, and was then followed by thousands of other deaths and consequences as serial lying by politicians led to two wars and tens of thousands of more deaths. All made possible by the corrupt acts stated here. Covering up for this scandal of scandals is now occupying the efforts of members of Congress and other groups—compounding the original crimes. Details follow.

For several decades, FBI agents in the New York City offices paid tens of thousands of dollars to a New York City Mafia capo, Gregory Scarpa, Sr., to be an informant. During that time, Scarpa provided information to FBI-DOJ personnel about the crimes of Mafia groups that were his competition. After their arrest and conviction, Scarpa took over their criminal operations. During this time, Scarpa was reportedly involved in over a dozen murders, some committed at the suggestion of his FBI handler. Scarpa was known as "the killing machine," paid and protected by the U.S. Department of Justice. In addition to paying Scarpa while he was knowingly involved in murders, FBI-DOJ employees provided Scarpa immunity for his crimes, including the murders that he was knowingly committing. Involved in this relationship were FBI personnel, the U.S. Attorney in New York City, Department of Justice personnel in Washington, and also FBI director J. Edgar Hoover. (This was similar to the murderous FBI-DOJ involvement with the James "Whitey" Bulger mob in the Boston offices of the FBI and U.S. Attorney.)  This is the same group and culture responsible for protecting the United States against terrorism.

Similar FBI-DOJ Murderous Complicity
In the Boston FBI-DOJ Offices

This murderous practice and culture also occurred for several decades in the Boston offices, involving James "Whitey" Bulger and his FBI handlers, with approval by top employees in the Washington offices of the U.S. Department of Justice. The number of murders were greater in the Boston offices, reportedly close to two dozen, including the brutal murders of two young ladies. Directly involved were FBI agents and the Boston Bulger gang, headed by James "Whitey" Bulger. This group, and their long-existing culture, also held responsibility  for protecting the nation against terrorism.

Mole in al Qaeda Cell Provided Advance
Information on Catastrophic al Qaeda Attacks

Awaiting trial for racketeering offenses at the Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC) in New York City was Gregory Scarpa, Jr., the son of the murderous Mafia capo, Gregory Scarpa, Sr. Also waiting to go to trial were major al Qaeda operatives Ramzi Yousef and Abdul Hakim Murad, each in their own cells. In a cell between them was Gregory Scarpa, Jr.

Yousef was awaiting trial for his role in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing (another success made possible by FBI corruption) and the planned bombings of a dozen U.S. airliners departing Asian locations. Gregory Scarpa Jr., (Gregory), in the cell between Yousef and Murad, was transferring  notes and information between the two al Qaeda members. Gregory had convinced Yousef that his Colombo Mafia group also wanted to harm the United States, leading to Yousef providing him al Qaeda secrets. Gregory, a mole in al Qaeda's most deadly unit, started receiving major al Qaeda secrets directly from Yousef—including advance information on planned al Qaeda attacks against major U.S. targets.


Gregory, and his New York City attorney, Larry Silverman, provided this ultra-important information to FBI agents in the New York City area, as it was being received from Yousef. Local FBI agents considered the information of extreme importance, and even set up a fictitious “Mafia” corporation in New York City. That fictitious Mafia corporation was staffed by FBI agents, through  which Yousef was encouraged to make local phone calls. These calls were then patched through to al Qaeda members in the United States and in other countries. This scheme continued for 11 months, during which FBI agents at the fictitious Mafia corporation recorded Yousef’s phone calls.


The information obtained from Yousef included the planned downing of a U.S. airliner departing the local New York JFK airport; the planned bombings of U.S. embassies in Africa; and the planned hijackings of U.S. airliners and flying them into buildings. Never before had the United States had such reliable information on planned terrorist attacks.

Deep-Sixing Advance Notice of al Qaeda Attacks

To prevent the success of those planned al Qaeda attacks, Department of Justice employees had to immediately forward this ultra-critical information to other government departments in order to take actions to prevent the success of the attacks. That was not done! Top Department of Justice employees in Washington deep-sixth the information on the planned attacks. That was done deliberately, to protect themselves.


High-level Department of Justice employees in Washington had in place a scheme to discredit Gregory. The purpose of the scheme was to prevent the public from learning about the murderous relationship between Gregory Scarpa, Sr., and FBI agents in the New York City offices and Washington personnel in the U.S. Department of Justice.


Gregory was scheduled to give sworn testimony in several murder trials about the murders that his Mafia father had committed—with the assistance of, and at the suggestion of, a key FBI supervisor: Lindley DeVecchio. That testimony would not only subject DeVecchio to murder charges, but also reflect very poorly upon  top FBI and Department of Justice personnel, who had known about and approved of the murders and other crimes being committed while being paid as a top level informant. The scheme was to provide sham evidence at the murder trials to discredit Gregory, and thereby help to protect the corrupt acts of FBI and Department of Justice employees. 

Corrupt Conduct by Department of Justice Employees
Enabled Series of Successful al Qaeda Attacks

If the information about the planned attacks was made known to government departments, actions could have been  taken to prevent the success of the attacks. The source of the critical information, Gregory Scarpa, Jr., would become known, his credibility would be established, and undermine  the scheme to discredit his sworn testimony about the murders his father committed with the help of, or at the suggestion  of, FBI agents in the New York City offices. For risking his life and that of his family, Gregory's credibility would be established. High-level Department of Justice officials in Washington made the decision to deep-six the critical information on the planned attacks—surely knowing that people would die!

Information So Explosive for the Controlling Oligarchy
That Total Silence Follows Notification

Total silence by every recipient of this information is shown by receipt of this information.

It is a criminal act for anyone to cover up for information about a federal crime. The cover-ups that started in the 1960s enabled the corruption to continue; enabled a log series of catastrophic aviation disasters to continue; allowed the spreading throughout government of a harmful culture of corruption.

Granddaddy of Corruption-Exposing
And Corruption-Fighting

Years earlier, in the 1960s, as airline crashes were a steady occurrence, sometimes occurring every few months, United Airlines experienced more catastrophic crashes and near-crashes than any other airline. Mid-level FAA management in the Los Angeles office asked FAA airline safety inspector Rodney Stich to accept an assignment to transfer to United Airlines Denver training base at Denver and halt the massive aviation safety problem at that airline—and within the local Denver FAA offices. That assignment had life-and-death consequences. If he failed, or was blocked from carrying out that assignment, the corrupt and unsafe practices would continue, along with the needless crashes and deaths, as before.

Stich quickly discovered and documented the serious aviation safety problems, the frauds, including falsification of government required major safety requirementsand the prior crashes and deaths arising from those problems. Details are too extensive for this site, but the details are in his not-for-profit book, History of Aviation Disasters: 1950 to 9/11 (The renamed and latest in the series first called, Unfriendly Skies.)

Links for more information on the granddaddy of corruption-exposing whistleblowers

His whistle blowing started before most of today's whistleblowers were born. Joining him were dozens of other key people, insiders, who witnessed the corruption, most of it unknown to today's whistleblowers. Collecting the discoveries of these insiders, there is a far more complete picture of a more sinister culture in the United States, connecting the dots, and portraying a far greater danger than almost anyone realizes.

Sequence of His Discoveries

Gregory Meeting Granddaddy Of
Corruption-Exposing Whistleblower

While Gregory Scarpa, Jr., was in federal prison at Florence, Colorado, in 2002, with a 40-year prison sentence, a fellow inmate suggested to him that he contact Rodney Stich, who had been exposing corruption in government for decades. Gregory made the initial contact, and for the next ten years, Gregory provided Stich with information and copies of FBI documents. That information added to the 40 years of discoveries about the corruption of the people in control of that powerful agency.

That information added to the misconduct that Stich had already discoveredand experiencedbut more importantly, revealed how that corruption enabled the greatest series of terrorist attacks to occur in the nation's history. Further, with the fraudulent lying by U.S. politicians, the United States plunged itself into two deadly wars, resulting in thousands of Americans killed and maimed, tens of thousands of innocent civilians in foreign countries killed and maimed; probably increased a thousand times over the number of people wanting to kill Americans; and left America's children the continuing tragedies that would not have happened if the corruption of key employees in the powerful FBI and Department of Justice had not occurred.

(This writer was at one time an airline captain working throughout the Middle East, in the 1950s, and found Americans well-liked throughout the region. That started changing with the CIA overthrow of the elected Iranian government, and even worse, the arming and support for Israel's brutal occupation of the West Bank that was part of Transjordan.)

Reporting Criminal Activities Via
Federal Crime Reporting Statute Resembled
Attacking a Hornet's Nest

Attacks upon the granddaddy of corruption-exposing whistleblowers were even greater when he reported the continuing corruption via the federal crime-reporting statute, Title 18 U.S.C. § 4. That criminal statute requires, and permits, anyone, to report a federal crime to a federal judge. This route became necessary because of the blocks by Department of Justice employees and the repeated cover-ups by members of Congress.

Initially, federal judges admitted the seriousness of the charges. But after federal prosecutors filed motions to dismiss, claiming Stich had no standing to report the crimes, federal judges blocked Stich from providing the evidence. That false argument, lack of standing to report federal crimes, was clear obstruction of justice for which the United States and its people would repeatedly suffer great harm. That and other tactics constituted aiding and abetting terrorists to successfully attack the United States by preventing the public from learning about the misconduct by government personnel that either encouraged the terrorist acts or enabled their success.

Multiple attempts were made to report the harm-resulting corruption to a federal judge under the crime reporting statute; each time the attempt was blocked. In almost every dismissal by federal district court judges, appeals were filed with the respective federal court of appeals, where the cover-ups continued. In many cases, the obstruction of justice was repeatedly made known via court filings and letters to the Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court. The Justices had a responsibility to receive the information of the federal crimes; they had supervisory responsibilities over the federal judges; and they had a responsibility to halt the constitutional violations arising out of the retaliatory schemes against Stich. In every attempt, the Justices refused to act.

Unprecedented Acknowledgement of Gravity by Supreme Court Justice

In one case, in 1991, when Stich filed a petition for emergency relief with Supreme Court Justice Byron White, detailing these serious matters, and referring to the prior and future consequences on national security, Justice White responded to Stich with an unprecedented personal letter (instead of a court clerk denial), and an unprecedented apology for not being able to help. Something like that had never before been done, and in response to a petition with such major criminal and subversive charges. U.S. Supreme Court Justice Byron White's unprecedented personal letter and apology, dated October 28, 1991:

"Dear Mr. Stich,


As a single Justice, I can be of no help to you. I am returning your petition.


Sincerely yours,


Byron White

That petition, in which Justice White said he could not be of any help—as a single Justice—contained information of massive corruption in some of the highest offices of the United States—as enablers of some of the nation's worst tragedies, and déjà vu of those that would occur on 9/11 and similar dates.

Sampling of federal court filings and related petitions to U.S. Appellate courts and then U.S. Supreme Court, based upon jurisdiction of Title 18 U.S.C. § 4 and other federal causes of actions. All of the following were involved with considerable intrigue:

Once federal judges violated the law in covering up for the ongoing corruption that enabled the corruption and often deadly consequence to continue, it became increasingly necessary for other judges to continue the serious misconduct in order to protect the misconduct of the earlier judges.

Initial Fight to Halt Fraud-Enabled Aviation Disasters

Years earlier, when airline disasters were a common event, federal airlines safety inspector, Rodney Stich, at Los Angeles, was given the unprecedented life-and-death-assignment  to halt the corruption at a large politically-powerful airline and within the local FAA offices. After discovering, reporting, and attempting to halt the corruption—while two fatal airline disasters occurred in the immediate area of the misconduct—he came under heavy attack, with the knowledge  of the FAA Administrator.
Stich took an unprecedented action that had never before been done. Using the law in an unusual manner, he acted similar to an independent prosecutor, conducting a court-like trial before an administrator law judge that lasted for several months. Stich obtained testimony from FAA management, and introduced large numbers of highly revealing government documents. The transcript consisted of 4,500 pages of testimony and exhibits. At the end of the proceedings, Stich introduced a closing brief.

During the proceedings, three more major airline disasters occurred, each one resulting from the exact same safety problems that Stich had repeatedly reported in writing. The last one occurred after Stich submitted his closing brief and before the hearing officer, William Jennings, an attorney on the FAA's administrative staff, issued a decision that was totally contrary to the evidence. A cover-up would result in continuation of the problems and continuation of the crashes and deaths.

As the crashes continued, and while Stich was still in the FAA, the head of the FAA's Sky Marshal program urged Stich to file a report with the FAA administrator concerning the corruption and related crashes. Stich complied, sending a cover letter and the report. The long report attached to the cover letter is shown here in three parts: (Part 1) (Part 2) (Part 3). 

The usual cover-up followed. Preventable aviation crashes continued for many years. Eventually, forces outside of the area of corruption acted to reduce the frequency of airline disasters. Aircraft warning systems when the aircraft came too close to the ground; collision-avoidance warning systems; ground-based radar following; more reliable engines and aircraft systems. However, the FAA culture continued as before, playing a major role in the easily preventable hijackings of four U.S. airliners on September 11, 2001.

Series of Unprecedented Lawsuits to Report The
Endemic Corruption and Related Tragedies

The seriousness of the criminal conduct, the enormity of the harm, the deaths, and catastrophic consequences, and what amounted to an intended or unintended subversion of the United States, caused Stich to do things he would never otherwise have done. These out-of-the-box attempts included filing federal lawsuits against powerful defendants, with the possibility that media corporations would provide publicity and that would focus on the charges made in the lawsuits.

  •  Lawsuits filed in federal court against specific members of Congress that were involved in felonious cover-ups of major crimes against the United States.

  • Lawsuits filed against federal judges, based upon the pattern of corruption by federal judges and their complicity in covering up for high-level corruption.  (Details in various books, including History of Aviation Disasters: 1950 to 9/11;  and Lawyers and Judges—American Trojan Horses.)

  • Lawsuit filed against Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court, based upon their cover-ups of the corruption, the corrupt obstruction-of-justice attacks on whistleblower Rodney Stich, and their years of complicity, which enabled high-level corruption and the resulting harm to continue. In their response, the Justices did not deny any of the charges in the complaint; their defense was that they were immune from any lawsuit.

  • Lawsuit against media corporations for their complicity of cover-ups , which were criminal acts under various criminal statutes. Many media personnel have been on the secret payroll of the CIA and other government departments for years, covering up for high-level corruption, engaging in misinformation and disinformation.

Series of Books Providing Insider Factual Information On
The Source of 40 Years of American Tragedies

These are heavily detailed books written by the granddaddy of corruption-exposing whistleblower Rodney Stich, with input from an unprecedented number of key personnel involved in covert and overt activities. They provide the material for a peaceful "Arab Spring" outrage among courageous Americans. (These books are available in print and digital format at www.amazon.com; www.google.com; and other web sites.) At each site, put "Rodney Stich" into the search box for a list of these books.

Bio on granddaddy of corruption exposing and corruption fighting whistleblowers.

These books are not-for-profit; they were first published when Stich had assets in the 1980s of about $10 million, and had no need for book profits. Department of Justice personnel and federal judges corruptly seized these assets that were "foolishly" being used to fund the exposure of the widespread corruption.

When a former key federal agent and his large group of other key people with direct knowledge in various government operations, with the background and credibility of Rodney Stich, provides such detailed information on corrupt actions by key officials in government, that had already resulted in such calamitous events, and cover-ups that insures a continuation of these matters, and there is total non-response, there has to be a matter of such grave implications in the governing structure of the United States that the matters are either being protected, possibly to protect the existing government oligarchy, or, the consequences are so horrendous that they are avoided like the "third rail."

The earlier corruption by key people in the three branches of the U.S. government were precursors to the enormous threats and harm experienced by people today.

Similarities Between German People Under Adolf Hitler
And American People Under Another Oppressive Government Oligarchy

A poem written by Martin Niemoller, relating to how Germans tolerate Adolf Hitler is especially suitable to most Americans today:


    First they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out, because I was not a Jew.
    Then they came for the Communists, and I did not speak out, because I was not a Communist.
    Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out, because I was not a trade unionist.
    Then they came for me, and there was no one left to speak out for me.


                  Pastor Martin Niemöller


Pastor Martin Niemöller (1892–1984) first supported the rise of Adolf Hitler, and then upon learning the truth, and objecting, he was imprisoned. He wrote a poem about the state of denial of Germans about what Hitler was doing. Probably no better example could be shown than what has been done to the American people, in their name, while they ignored the outrages.


The first step is to become informed. And with the vast cover-ups, disinformation, and blatant lying by U.S. politicians, media personnel, and political pundits, this requires a little effort. In searching for information, don't be misled by wild conspiracy theories, and go where facts can be found, including courageous (and foolish) insiders who speak out in defense of the country.


Sadly, fewer people read such books (preferring trivia reading), rarely read newspapers (which is one small step to becoming informed). Therefore, the future is bleak, made possible by the corruption detailed here and in the books, the cover-ups, and the public's indifference to their responsibilities.

Will the American People Ever Learn—and, Do They
Have the Courage to Respond Adequately to the Threat?

Based upon the prior history of non-response by the American people, the history of worsening consequences will surely continue, with the danger of nuclear consequences. As this writer has done for the past 50 years, the consequences of this lack of public reaction will be devastating.
