Jon Lipsky no FBI retaliation letter to FBI Director Robert S. Muehler, III of February 24, 2004.
In part: “… in 2001 I learned of federal legislation to open the former Rocky Flats Nuclear Weapons Plant to public access and recreation. It was apparent
that the information I have, needed to be provided to Congress and the American people in order to protect innocent lives. Because of my [sworn] duty to public safety, I became involved in a Citizens’ Investigation of Rocky Flats and of the Justice Department for the period 1989-1992. The purpose of the Citizens’ Investigation is to provide information to Congress and the American people so that informed decisions affecting public health can be completely contemplated and made. I have already provided this information to Congress. In the near future, the information that I provided to Senator Carl Levin, Senator Charles Grassley, Congressman Mark Udall, and Congressman John Dingell about the former Rocky Flats Nuclear Weapons Plant will be published in a not-for-profit book to better inform the public about the dangers of allowing the former nuclear weapons Plant site to be used for recreation. My decision to provide this information was based on a number of factors, including: In 1992, I testified before the US House of Representatives (One-hundred Second Congress, Second Session); Committee on Science, Space and Technology; Subcommittee on Investigations and Oversight concerning the Environmental Crimes at the Rocky Flats Nuclear Weapons Facility which had been conducted jointly by the FBI and EPA/CID. As part of my appearance before the Subcommittee, then-Chairman and Congressman Howard Wolpe requested me to contact Congress with any additional information about the Plant or the investigation. Legislation establishing The Rocky Flats National Wildlife Refuge was signed into law in 2001. Plans are being made to open the site to recreation. Unless the public and Congress know the full truth about the Rocky Flats investigation back in 1989-1992, the important decisions they are making concerning the public health will be based on incomplete and inaccurate information.”
