An additional quote from the "letter never sent" (except to the OIG):
Your Finding....dealt with delegated supplier source acceptance, not Boeing source acceptance! They don’t know the blanking difference! Save “us” now (the passengers who fly on Boeing airplanes, who I am representing in this endeavor)!—pull BCAG’s PC ASAP! This...obviously had to go through many reviews, and...Mr. (name), head of BCAG Regulatory Administration,...should know much, much better! Pull our PC until BCAG can demonstrate that they have competent personnel in Quality Management that are singularly focused on the quality, conformity, and safety of our airplanes as they should be, instead of the current carefully groomed crop of buffoons they obviously have in those critical positions now that do nothing more than sit back and let our FAA-approved Quality System devolve while they hit reload on their browsers every five minutes to see if that damage to our Quality System has added significantly to the value of their Boeing stock options, and if not, they “pull out a wrench” and throw it into “the Quality System Works” to hasten that damage, then run back to their computers and anxiously hit that reload button yet again to see if that sabotage “added value” to those stock options.)
Of course, this statement was an analogy and general in nature, and is not intended to imply that all QA managers at Boeing are as described. Years ago I heard of a few QA managers that spoke up against what Boeing was doing to its quality system. Those QA managers may still work for Boeing, although I would strongly doubt they lasted long in their jobs after their failure to be yes men. There may be QA managers at Boeing that are competent, know what Boeing is doing is wrong and criminal, and are acting to do their jobs the way the regulations state they should be done for the safety of the public despite the way their corrupt superiors want them to act, much like I did my job despite my corrupt management, however, of the numerous QA Supervisors and their bosses I have known and worked for at Boeing, I never met such a QA Manager. This anology stems from one of my QA Supervisor's edicts from his superiors to "go out and raise the stock price," among other of my QA supervisor's antics.
