Do Not Give Up Hope Just Yet! Your Urgent Help Needed!
Please help Henry A. Waxman, Chairman of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, U.S. House of Representatives, perform the urgently needed investigation of the FAA that the DOT OIG refused to perform--Add your voice to others calling for this fraud to be investigated and ended once and for all.
Several days ago began new hope that the fraud documented on this web site will ultimately be investigated and thereby come to an end, and your help is needed urgently to make it happen.
The charges manufactured against me at the request of Boeing in order "to kill the messenger" are meaningless in even the smallest scheme of things in relation to this issue.
None of the similar such attempted obfuscation up to this point has kept me from trying to get someone with authority and integrity to investigate and end this endemic Boeing and FAA fraud, and neither will this latest attempt succeed in shielding those who I rightly was, and still am, trying to bring to justice.
While the corrupt Boeing and FAA officials involved in this fraud may already have broken out the champagne and danced a jig because they thought that they had escaped accountability for their corruption, and they may now get their current joys watching me, the one who has sought to bring them to justice for years, face injustice at the hands of Boeing for trying to bring them to justice, the fat man hasn't really sung yet.
Remember my 4-22-07 blog post before I found out that the DOT OIG's office had tried to run out the clock by only pretending to investigate my report of fraud in the FAA's oversight of Boeing and the FAA's intentional non-investigation of my report to the FAA's Transport Airplane Directorate?
I gave details of a phone conversation just a few days earlier that raised questions as to the competence and bias of the DOT OIG's "investigation" of my report. In that post, I noted that a second, perhaps less biased party was needed to perform a parallel investigation of the FAA in case the OIG's investigation failed to investigate and end the noted fraud, inferring that that second party was Congress.
I began at that time to write the Honorable Henry A. Waxman, Chairman of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform in the U.S. House of Representatives so that they could perform that parallel investigation to ensure justice was ultimately done for the sake of public safety. Mr. Waxman's ethics are beyond reproach, unlike other highly placed officials in government, such as the multiple Inspector Generals that have fallen under a cloud of suspicion for their own ethical transgressions, when they are supposed to be the epitome of ethics, without bias, and independent from the agencies they are supposed to audit and investigate.
This is why Mr. Waxman is the perfect person, and heads the perfect Congressional Committee, to perform the investigation the OIG only pretended to start. He is also the perfect person and part of the perfect Committee to interview OIG personnel under oath to find out the real reasons behind their actions, as well find out what they found out during their nearly year long "review/investigation" of my report.
Mr. Waxman's committee does not investigate Inspector Generals. However, depending upon their testimony on their highly questionable inactions, his committee can recommend an investigation of the IG's office to the relevent body, which I hope they will do.
Anyway, due to things that happened in the interim, such as the OIG's unexpected and still inexplicable abrupt end to their investigation which I learned of on 5-15-07 and immediately began to look into, my letter to Mr. Waxman was delayed. That is, delayed until several days ago.
While it would have been good to have the parallel investigations as I had envisioned, if Mr. Waxman takes the helm of the investigation as I requested, those of you who are rightly worried about your safety when you fly because of the fraud documented on this web site needn't worry that FAA oversight will be restored, I believe.
That is where you come in. Please write to Mr. Waxman's Committee and urge him and the Committee as a whole to take up the matter as I requested. Also please write to your Senators and Representative as well urging them to support such an investigation by Mr. Waxman's Committee.
You certainly know by now how very corrupted certain Federal agencies have become over the last several years as the media has been covering the issue.
Even the Department of Justice's actions are in question. No longer can you have any doubts as to any agency's ability to become corrupted over the past several years, especially in the case of an agency like the FAA which has a long history of favoring the aviation industry over the interests of the public, well before the current "cancer" of corruption found its way into other agencies over the past several years as noted in the media today.
The corruption of the FAA--as documented on this web site--that is responsible for corruption in the U.S. transport aircraft industry may not have been readily believable to you when this site first started, despite the FAA's "tombstone agency" secondary moniker, unless you had witnessed it like I did.
However, with corruption at other government agencies seemingly running rampant, I trust that you now can agree that the fraud I witnessed is not only possible, but is in fact very probable, and you can now realize the implications to your and your loved one's safety if this fraud at the FAA is allowed to continue unabated, as it has been despite my efforts thus far.
What is needed is your voice and your Congressional Representative's voices to ensure your safety and security becomes the FAA's mission like it was always supposed to be. Please write today. If you have personal stories of witnessing this kind of fraud at the FAA or Boeing, please include them in your correspondence. Remember that fraud in Quality Assurance at Boeing ("rollerstamping" by inspectors, delegations of FAA functions that should have never been delegated, removal of inspections based on no data or invalid data, etc.) is evidence of the almost total lack of the required oversight of Boeing's compliance with its Production, Type, Repair Station, and Airworthiness Certificates by the FAA.
The following are the links to Mr. Waxman's office and your Congressional Representatives' contact info.
Remember that this never was and still is not in any way about me. It is about ending the fraud at Boeing and the FAA that I and others have witnessed, and you became aware of through this site. If any of our Federal agencies should be restored from their current purposeful ignoring of their true duties to the public in deference to powerful corporations' opposing interests, it is the FAA.
This quote is also from my addendum (supplement) to my first report:
This just in: I was right (I hate it when that happens, not)! I checked the Prime Division’s recent Stamps and Seals QOIs, and they (the manual administrators--not their QA Supervisors, whom I believe are as corrupt as ours) had the ethics to revise theirs to state what ours should say. Make us revise our (document number) Torque Requirements and (document number) Stamps and Seals QOIs to state we have to use (material specification) tamper proof putty and (material specification) anti-sabotage inspection lacquer per similar requirements to the below Everett QOI (I think Renton’s QOI has been revised to be very similar to Everett’s). PSD Engineering would have to determine which areas of the engine, struts and APUs are high heat areas (above XXX degrees operating temperature). Review the QACR (Quality Assurance Change Request) that revised the two noted QOIs to delete inspection putty. See what the reason they gave you was. We had this (material specification) blue lacquer at PSD before we had the QOI’s changed (per the above paragraph). See if whomever submitted the QOI to you lied. That should be instructive of the ethics of our management. By having us change our QOI back, you’ll be proving that preserving the inspection integrity of the product is paramount, and by association, that inspection integrity is paramount, something our management does not believe. Us using inspection putty again would also ensure integrity of the critical torques we witness, due to the fact that if inspectors putty fasteners as they are torqued, which is not done now, there is much less likelihood that inspection and shop would make a mistake, and miss the torquing of a critical fastener or fasteners on an installation.
