This quote is also from my first report to the FAA local MIDO office, when I was naive and chose not to believe all those press reports about the FAA being the "handmaiden of the aviation industry" and a "tombstone agency." This quote is from the section of my report noted in the first quote below that I deleted to make that quote shorter and I stated that I may quote later. This quote from that section details my history as an inspector at Boeing, and some of the other corrupt Boeing QA supervisors I've worked for over the years:
It’s just my word against his, right? True, but I think, during the course of your investigation, that you’ll be able to confirm everything I’ve told you, and in the process, confirm something that will ultimately lead you to the conclusion of whether my recount of the (1-11-02) meeting is correct, or anything he makes up is correct: I have integrity. He doesn’t. I have no personal beef with (my QA supervisor). We had no arguments prior to that meeting. I’ve really been told before all of what (my QA supervisor) said in that meeting. As I said, I had gotten bits of it here, more of it there, in my travails as an inspector. I didn’t listen, though. I didn’t want to believe it. I wanted to continue to believe I had a real, honest to goodness, important job of being a Quality Assurance Inspector on the most complex machines yet built by man. I didn’t want to hear that I was just a common criminal, expected to help defraud the FAA and BCAG customers, by roller stamping; by only pretending to be what I had always wanted to be. So he had to lay it all out and threaten my job to make me conform.
