An additional quote from the "letter never sent" (except to the OIG).
I saw (my supervisor's name) walking toward the Manufacturing office along the transportation aisle. He must have seen the red tag I had hung on the defect I had shown him on the engine core when he walked by, yet he did not stop in to chastise me again, this time for me ignoring his corrupt orders for me to ignore the defect demonstrated by me writing it up, as it was not "obvious transportation damage." Later I saw him walking briskly back toward the QA office, I assumed from his boss’s offices—those of Manufacturing.
