SUBJ:  WHISTLEBLOWING UNITED PILOTS ASSOCIATION

Dear Ms. Currie-Leonard,

On November 18, 2006, an association joint letter was sent to Senators Reid, Durbin, and Obama petitioning their political help in investigating alleged white-collar criminal activity associated with the United Airlines bankruptcy.  Although not a resident of Illinois, my purpose in writing merely served as the voice of the subject association. 

The Whistleblowing United Pilots Association is somewhat of a misnomer in that it is an independent grassroots coalition of all airline employees and retirees from every airline across the nation whose purpose is to help discover the truth and serve justice on the white-collar criminals who perpetrated the crimes, which enabled the demise of post-9/11 airline employees and retirees in bankruptcy.

On May 4, 2007 you responded in writing that, since I was not a resident of the state of Illinois and hence, not one of Senator Obama’s constituents, that ‘Congressional courtesy dictates that the current federal senators and representatives be afforded the opportunity to respond to their constituents of the districts from which they were elected’.

On May 1, 2007, as one of his constituents, I received a personal letter from Senator Saxby Chambliss (R-GA) offering political assistance in the investigation into my personal issue with the Federal Aviation Administration as to why previously submitted federally mandated reports had been stonewalled.  Since the concerns and scope of the subject association extended far beyond my personal issues, and since previous attempts to address these issues with federal law enforcement officials had been ignored, it was felt unnecessary to pursue my issue with the help of Senator Chambliss at the time for the reasons stated herein.

Previously, on November 20, 2006, an association letter had been written to District Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald petitioning his office to investigate the available evidence surrounding said potential criminal activity in the United Airlines/McCook Metals bankruptcies.  On December 11, 2006, a letter was received from his office with advisement that the office of Chicago FBI Director Robert Grant be contacted if there was any direct evidence of violations of federal law.  At the time, it was known that former Chairman and CEO of McCook Metals LLC Michael Lynch had previously briefed both Mr. Fitzgerald and Mr.Grant on the evidence at hand, but needed federal witness protection for his informants in this case.  This evidence and witness testimony is directly related to criminal activity in the United bankruptcy.

During this same time frame, with the congressional mid-term election results elevating key Democrats to key committee chair positions, association letters were sent to relevant chairmen addressing these very issues. Realizing that the Democratic party had the first 100-hour agenda and other pressing matters such as the firing of District Attorneys to deal with as well as a back log of other committee oversight issues to address (due to virtually no congressional oversight by the previous GOP-controlled committees), we patiently watched in hopes that eventually our association concerns would be addressed as well.

On April 1, 2007, an association letter was written to Chicago FBI Director Robert Grant inquiring as to why an investigation into the United/McCook bankruptcies had been suspended given the evidence/witnesses at hand.  Additionally, it was suggested that perhaps top-level personnel within the Department of Justice were exerting undue pressure on District Attorneys in cases involving highly-sensitive political issues.

On May 16, 2007, a letter was received from the U.S. Department of Justice-FBI office advising that the letters had been received by the FBI Public Corruption Office (an administrative arm of the FBI) and had been forwarded to the FBI Atlanta field office.  The Atlanta field offices never responded. 

As a result of testimony by fired District Attorneys during the AG Gonzales hearings, it was surmised that undue political influence may have been exerted through key Department of Justice personnel on the actions of District Attorneys, so on September 1, 2007, an association letter was written to Assistant Attorney General Alice Fisher-DOJ Criminal Division inquiring as to why federal witness protection and immunity from prosecution had not been afforded to informants in this case.

In early September, additional evidence surfaced that was uncovered by another grassroots organization, which supported allegations surrounding criminal activity in the United Airlines bankruptcy and was reported upon by two articles appearing on The Motley Fool website as authored by reporter Rich Duprey. This  additional evidence implicitly suggests possible White House collusion, fraudulent accounting practices, securities fraud, nondisclosure of certain financial assets during the bankruptcy, fraudulent government loan application processes, a government appointee which involves a conflict of interest, and questionably legal agreements between United Airlines and the Pension Benefit Guarantee Corporation in the distress-termination of defined-benefit employee pensions. 

On October 10, 2007, a letter was received from U.S. Representative Lynn Westmoreland (R-GA) advising me that a local staff member in Georgia was contacting the U.S.  Department of Justice regarding the September 1st letter to Asst AG Alice Fisher.  As Mr. Lynch, his investigative team, others, and myself recognized certain unnamed legal and political forces being brought to bear upon us in other arenas, drastic measures had to be taken to protect ourselves and families, our evidence, and witnesses in an attempt to bring matters to legal and political light.

On October 18, 2007, I invoked the rights, privileges, and protections under the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 in declaring myself a federal whistleblower on behalf of the employees and retirees of United Airlines.  On October 19, letters were written on behalf of the subject association to the relevant congressional committee chairmen Senators Kennedy and Leahy and Congressmen Waxman, Conyers, and Miller advising them of the same while petitioning their committees to commence a congressional investigation into these matters.  We are presently awaiting a response from their committee office staff.

Although I fully understand that since I personally am not a constituent of Senator Obama, he is a Democratic front runner for the office of President and currently represents his constituency in the state of Illinois.  Since United Airlines, as one of the largest employers in the state has tens-of-thousands of employees who may have been illegally disenfranchised during the post-9/11 bankruptcy process, and since the Seventh Circuit Court system falls within their domains of influence and authority, it is hoped that both Senators Obama and Durbin will exercise such due authority and responsibility in vigorously supporting a prompt investigation into these criminal allegations.
The United States still has laws and law enforcement agencies, a criminal justice system, and a system of checks and balances governed in accordance with precepts established by our Constitution.  The tax-paying citizens of this country demand that potential dysfunction of any branch of government be corrected by appropriate congressional oversight committee investigations and hearings.

There exists evidence, which suggests criminal activity that has yet to be investigated by the Department of Justice and other branches of government for whatever reasons.  The employees and retirees of United Airlines want to know why this has not yet occurred.

Your cooperation and assistance in this matter is greatly appreciated by the many Illinois United Airlines workers and retirees, as well as the many other global members of the United family.  We are merely being citizen-patriots attempting to uphold our Constitutional rights as citizens who pay taxes in demand of a fair and honest system of government.

Sincerely,

Dan Hanley

Dear Mr. Fine,
The Whistleblowing United Pilots Association is a national grassroots coalition comprised of employees and retirees from all airlines whose purpose is to help discover the truth regarding alleged white-collar criminality associated with post-9/11 airline bankruptcies and serve justice on the criminals who perpetrated these crimes.  I serve as a public spokesperson for this group.

Since November 20, 2006, the Department of Justice has been apprised of the availability of criminal evidence in support of allegations of corruption in the United Airlines bankruptcy when a letter was mailed to District Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald’s office advising him of this.

On December 26, 2006, a letter was received from his screening committee advising me to contact Chicago FBI Special Agent-in-Charge Robert Grant with this information.

On April 1, 2007, a letter was sent to Mr. Grant advising him of the same, while addressing concerns that, in light of the recent district attorney firings at the time, perhaps untoward upper-echelon Department of Justice pressures were being exerted to preclude the continuance of an investigation on related evidence and witnesses that had stepped forth.

Mr. Grant never responded to this letter, but on April 16, 2007 a letter was received the Public Corruption Unit of the Washington FBI office, a branch with a purely administrative function, suggesting that I contact the office of the FBI in Atlanta, Georgia.  Since FBI Chicago had already been briefed on some of the legal matters pertaining to this case, and since many of the witnesses resided there, I decided that at that point in time, this not to be the most prudent course of legal action.

Because of persistent stonewalling regarding other branches of government, on September 1, 2007, I sent a letter to then Assistant Attorney General-Criminal Division Alice Fisher, Senator Leahy, Senator Schumer, and Congressman Conyers a letter to inform them of the availability of witnesses and criminal evidence, while describing our frustration in moving the case forward in the legal/political arena without adequate witness protection for criminal informants.

On October 18, 2007, under the auspices of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, I filed for federal whistle blower protection in letters to Senator Carl Levin, Chairman of the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, and Christopher Cox, Chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission, which included signed and sworn affidavits provided by myself and an associated.  Additionally, federal witness protection was requested, given the critical issues that had been addressed in these affidavits.

On October 22, 2007, an unsolicited letter was received by me from my home-state of Georgia Senator Saxby Chambliss advising me that he had contacted the Department of Justice on this matter and would respond to me as soon as information became available to him.

On November 5, 2007, Senator Chambliss responded to me by saying, “that, I, as a U.S. senator, have no jurisdiction over matters such as these.”

On November 5, 2007, a letter was received from SEC Senior Counselor Juliet Gardner thanking me for my ‘views’, while advising that if the SEC had any further questions, they would contact me, which they have not.

On December 12, 2007, a letter was received from Gerald Toner, DOJ Assistant Chief for Labor-Management Racketeering-Organized Crime and Racketeering Section, with a letter enclosed from John Keeney, DOJ Deputy Assistant Attorney General, in response to the letter that I had mailed to Ms Fisher on April 1, 2007.  Unfortunately, Mr. Keeney skirted the very issues I had addressed in my letter to Ms Fisher.

On February 10, 2008, I responded to Mr. Keeney by pointing out the fact that my originally questions had not been addressed, while specifically quoting the exact text of sections of the Fisher letter.  Unfortunate for me, I believe that it was during this time frame that Mr. Keeney left DOJ, as there were other allegations he was facing at the time.  I did not receive a response to this letter from anyone else at DOJ.

Recognizing that I had already exposed myself to criminal elements with the information provided, and that I was not being afforded Sarbanes-Oxley whistle blower or other protections as prescribed by federal law, with no congressional committee response to letters written either, on February 14, 2008, I filed a criminal complaint (#2008-9580) with Agent David Barusko of the Chicago FBI office pending forthcoming evidence and witness testimony, which required witness protection for criminal informants.  During this conversation, Agent Barusko advised me that a meeting could be arranged with agents at an undisclosed location of our time and choosing to present evidence, but I informed him that I would have to consult with attorneys and associates before accepting this offer.

(A few weeks ago I confirmed that the file on this complaint was still open and requested that the agent I talked to hold the complaint file open, which he assured me he’d do).

On February 22, 2008, a letter was mailed to Robert Grant advising him of my phone conversation with Mr. Barusko, while establishing self-protective conditions for arrangement of the meeting.  Mr. Grant never responded to this letter.

It has now been twenty-six months since the Department of Justice was notified of the availability of criminal evidence.  There has been no legal or political response from the Department of Justice or Congress.

Recently, letters were mailed to the Office of the Inspector General of the Department of Transportation, Labor, and Treasury,  as well as the Securities and Exchange Commission and Social Security Administration requesting that these offices conduct investigate allegations of potential criminality on a number of issues all pertaining to this case.  Ordinary citizens should not have to go to these lengths to solve crimes, as this is the function of the Department of Justice.

President Obama campaigned on a promise of open government, which included the exposition of white-collar corruption, untoward lobbyist pressures, and excessive executive compensation.  In this regard, the Whistleblowing United Pilots Association fully supports and encourages his agenda.

Last week, the Government Accountability Project office transmitted the attached letter petitioning President Obama to move forward with pending enhanced whistle blower protection legislation.  You will note that my name/association appear as signatory toward the bottom of this document.  It is because of my personal past abuse as a whistle blower on numerous counts, as well as the thousands of other unheard informants, that I strongly support passage of this legislation

When individual whistle blowers garner the courage to step forth with criminal evidence, they do so with the hope and promise that laws will be upheld and the agencies assigned to enforce them will perform these duties.  I am presently a disenfranchised federal whistle blower on a number of related issues who foolishly believed that there were whistle blower laws and law enforcement agencies to protect me once I spoke out.  Fool me once…

We want to believe that Lady Justice is blind in the criminal prosecution of unlawful behavior in this country.  Based on the frustrating past several years experiences of our association, we’ve come to believe this only to be the case with selective issues and individual cases.  Kindly prove us wrong in this instance.

In the near future, our association members will be providing evidence and witness testimony to the Department of Justice and expect full cooperation and protection.

 Very respectfully,

SUBJ:  UNITED AIRLINES BANKRUPTCY CORRUPTION

Dear Mr. President,

On behalf of the Whistleblowing United Pilots Association, please allow me to extend our sincere congratulations and best wishes to you and Vice-President Biden on your tremendously successful political journey to the White House.  Your elevation to the Oval Office is a much-welcomed breath of political fresh air and relief to the 300-million citizens of this great country at a time of grave political and economic peril.  Well done, sir!

The Whistleblowing United Pilots Association is a national grassroots coalition comprised of employees and retirees from all airlines whose purpose is to help discover the truth regarding alleged white-collar criminality associated with post-9/11 airline bankruptcies and serve justice on the criminals who perpetrated these crimes.  I serve as a public spokesperson for this group.

With your vision of hope and promise for change, which includes a greater openness in government, exposure of government fraud, waste, abuse, and corruption, including the untoward influence of K-Street lobbyist and Wall Street financial pressures, excessive executive compensation, and white-collar criminality, whose exposure is further enhanced through the strengthening of whistle blower protection laws, suffice it to say that you have the full support and cooperation of our association in achieving those lofty objectives in the future.

As you may or may not know, on November 16, 2006, I wrote to your senate office, as well as that of Senators Reid and Durbin, apprising you of the existence of available evidence in support of allegations of white-collar criminality in the United Airlines, Inc. and McCook Metals, LLC bankruptcies.  Neither Senator Reid’s nor Senator Durbin’s office responded to this letter.

On May 14, 2007, Ms Joan Currie-Leonard, your Special Assistant in your Chicago senate office, responded to my a letter informing me that since I was not an Illinois resident and hence, not your constituent, congressional courtesy dictated that home state representatives be afforded the opportunity to respond to my concerns. 

With the surfacing of significant additional federal criminal evidence, petition was been made to numerous branches of government, including relevant congressional committees and the Department of Justice, for political and legal intercession during this same time frame to no avail.

Given the unfolding events, and as a public spokesperson for the association, while realizing that I was not personally a member of your constituency, but spokesperson for the association, on October 24, 2007, a second letter was mailed to Ms Currie-Leonard, this time on behalf of the association membership that outlined the chronology of events surrounding these controversial legal and political issues.

 Rather than expound, kindly review the enclosed letter for details.  Once again, Ms Currie-Leonard responded as before deferring me to my home-state of Georgia Senator Saxby Chambliss, this in spite of the fact I had written to your office on behalf of members of the subject association, many of which reside in Illinois which, as you recognize, is the single largest employer in the state of Illinois.

On October 22, 2007, an unsolicited letter was received from Senator Chambliss acknowledging his awareness of criminal evidence associated with the United Airlines bankruptcy and his assurances that he would respond to me upon receipt of an answer to his Department of Justice inquiry, which he had recently made.  But just 15 days later, on November 5, 2007, he sent me a letter advising that, “…as a U.S. Senator, have no jurisdiction over matters such as these.”

Because these matters had been stonewalled for so long by so many levels and branches of government including the Department of Justice, on October 18, 2007, I concurrently filed for whistle blower protection under the provisions of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 with letters of petition to Senator Carl Levin and Securities and Exchange Commissioner Christopher Cox.   In subsequent discussions with Senator Levin’s staff, I was advised that the issues could not be investigated due to staff shortages and committee focus on the overabundance of higher priority issues.

On February 14, 2008, I filed a federal complaint (#2008-9580) with the office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Chicago pending forthcoming evidence and witness testimony, which will be presented to this office shortly.

 On January 29, 2008, frustrated by over a year lapsed time and no SEC response, coupled with the exposition of DOJ ‘deferred compensation agreements’ by New York Times investigative journalist, Eric Lichtblau, described in his April 9, 2008 article, “In Justice Shift, Corporate Deals Replace Trials”, I wrote to H. David Kotz, the Security and Exchange Commission Inspector General, expressing my frustration and dismay over the lengthy delay of an appropriate SEC response, given that sufficient information, which included my sworn affidavit and other information, had been provided to warrant a preliminary investigation.

Very recently, letters were also sent to the Office of Inspector General at the Departments of Justice, Treasury, Transportation, and Labor, as well as to the Inspector General of the Social Security Administration on a tangentially relevant issue.  Copies of these letters are enclosed for your perusal.   

Given your recent elevation to the Oval Office with present jurisdiction over these departments of government, and in light of your proclamations concerning openness of government and diminishment of corruption in both the civil and federal sector, our association members are highly confident of your assurance of extensive investigations into these matters by the Inspector General of each department, and stand ready to fully support and cooperate with them in the future.

Last week, the Government Accountability Project office sent a letter of petition to your office asking your support of pending enhanced whistle blower protection legislation, which has been appended as an amendment to the Economic Stimulus Bill currently under debate in the Senate.  You will note that my name/association appear as signatory toward the bottom of this document.  It is because of my personal past abuse as a whistle blower on numerous counts, as well as the thousands of other unheard informants, that I strongly support passage of this legislation, as do members of the Whistleblowing United Pilots Association.

When individual whistle blowers garner the courage to step forth with criminal evidence, they do so with the hope and promise that laws will be upheld and the agencies assigned to enforce them will perform these duties, with the added personal safeguards provided by federal law.

As a Harvard Law graduate, teaching law at the University of Chicago, a U.S. Senator, and now President of the United States, I’m certain that we can agree that this is a nation of laws with time-honored established institutions of support.  Over the course of the past eight years, we have observed the most disgraceful abuse and denigration of power of the U.S. Constitution in our nation’s history.  Citizens want their Constitution and good government back.  More so, they beg for the restoration of law and order that embraces the precepts of this sacred document.  

We want to believe that Lady Justice is blind in the criminal prosecution of unlawful behavior in this country.  Based on the frustrating past several years experiences of our association, we’ve come to believe this only to be the case with selective issues and individual cases.  Kindly prove us wrong in this instance.

It is blatantly obvious to all that you are a good and loving family man, husband, and father.  Please empathetically realize the horrific pain, sadness, familial maladies, and other hardships wrought on the good people of the airline industry during the post-9/11 bankruptcies which, as our membership asserts, were affected by alleged illicit means.  In this regard alone, we beg for your understanding, cooperation and assistance.  

Our association stands shoulder-to-shoulder with our president, ready, willing, and able to rout out the possible white-collar criminals who may have committed these crimes against airline employees who were willing to give the shirt off their backs to sustain the industry in the post-9/11 era.  In the end, they did.  Is this their reward for their sacrifices?

The Whistleblowing United Pilots Association membership sincerely wishes you, Michelle, Malia Anne, and Sasha much happiness and success during your stay at the White House.  You’ve travelled a very long road in life to get there.  Please reflect on the long career paths travelled by airline employees with hopes and dreams for a happy and successful retirement, only to realize them shattered in the eleventh hour of their careers, with nowhere else to turn for sustenance in the twilight years of life.  It wasn’t right.

Very respectfully,


Dan Hanley

 In July 2010, an agent from the FBI Joint Terrorist Task Force phone-contacted Captain Dan Hanley and accused him of making statements against the U.S. government that perhaps insinuated that he was considered a domestic terrorist and maybe an 'enemy of the state'??  Nothing could be further from the truth!

Captain Hanley is currently living in self-imposed exile in Islamabad, Pakistan with his Pakistani wife, Huma Hashmi-Hanley.
