Three little words…Happy birthday Norm!

To Congressman Norm Dicks please accept these sincere sentiments in my birthday wish to you as you celebrate 66 years in Congress:

Oh, sorry, I meant your 66th birthday. My goof. It just seems you’ve been in Congress your entire life.

And those three little words? Means, motive, opportunity.

Expounding for the benefit of those not familiar with Norm’s recent conduct as an elected official, doing the “people’s business” in “our house,” there’s this...

I began calling and emailing Norm and his congressional buddies the week of 4 December 2006 in a renewed, end-of-year effort to cause the arrest of senior Defense Department officials for ongoing, serious criminal adventures. I spoke with Norm’s Press Secretary—George Behan—and sent Norm and George a picture (taken by Behan) with myself, Glenda Ewing, and Norm standing in his office. Glenda and I had both testified before the Cox Commission the day before, and visited Norm to report to him information we possessed regarding the scope and operation of the military’s discipline system. Behan clicked the camera shutter in the late afternoon of 14 March 2001, after Glenda and I had spent 2 ½ hours briefing Norm Dicks.

Norm was 60 then.

Some of what reported to Norm in 2001 was repeated in my communications over the past two weeks.

You see, nothing effective has been done responsive information brought before the Congress by the Cox Commission (Goggle it), U.S. News & World Report (frequently by authors Peter Cary and Ed Pound), and, to be sure, Glenda and I.

Norm Dicks knows of my nearly 20-year campaign to efface the unconstitutional Articles of War (since renamed the Uniform Code of Military Justice or UCMJ) from our legislative construct as it presently exists. I brought my concerns time to Norm for the first time, as one of his constituents, in April 1992. Norm was 51 then.

Norm Dicks, and the many staffers in his offices in D.C., and here in the Puget Sound, know full well I represent no threat of physical harm.

And still, Norm Dicks reported to Capitol Police in the past two weeks that I did.

Capitol Police notified officials from the Department of Homeland Security, who further alerted DHS’ Federal Protection Service.

The first knock at my door came at 10:37 a.m., Thursday, 7 December 2006. I didn’t answer. More knocks came later Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Monday morning. Then a phone call.

My best reconstruction of events is that two different DHS/FPS federal police officers drove from their Federal Way, WA Office (52-miles distant-in Puget Sound traffic) to find their way to my front door. The lead investigator was Inspector Larry McConnell, assisted by another unknown DHS/FPS officer described as “the fat one” by neighbors.

McConnell had to invade my privacy, working off Norm Dicks’ false report, to learn where I lived (I’m recently relocated), find out exactly which apartment I occupied (my mailing address is a P.O. box), determine what kind of vehicle I own with its license number (one of the officers remarked my vehicle missing during their Monday visit), obtain my cell telephone number (used to call me Monday morning), and obtain my physical description (confirmed during their questioning of apartment complex office staff).

McConnell and friend’s numerous visits to this very closely watched community caused quite a stir, and represents a type and kind of public defamation wholly unsupported, completely inappropriate. Tersely: Exactly the signals sent into my neighborhood Norm Dicks intended.

Norm Dicks has tried to intimidate me before, as he did again in past days, but that’s not working out so well.

I suspect McConnell and his companion traveled separately, tag-teaming driving from Federal Way, to Silverdale on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. They came to my door in the morning, and not finding me, loitered in the area to knock on my door in the afternoon before returning to base.

McConnell was here on Monday morning. He called me, and I returned his call while he was driving back to Federal Way. He’d left his business card in the door with the written comment on the back: “Mr. Fitzpatrick…you need to contact me to talk…Inspector McConnell.”

I suspect, had I not returned his call, a more dedicated federal agent/police response was in my future.

In case it’s missed your attention: Congressman Norman Dicks has committed a criminal act by filing a knowingly false police report. Dicks’ criminal act is formally reported, here, to Inspector McConnell (an email link/alert is sent to McConnell separately).

MEANS: Norm is a very powerful Congressman. He’s known as the 3rd Senator in Washington State.

MOTIVE: Norm is furiously attempting to cover-up the criminal acts of very senior Defense Department officials and others, in plain view, reported here and elsewhere, too numerous to repeat today. There's one example worth mention though: Norm’s known about the nefarious participation of a County prosecutor in Norm’s congressional district since 1998 (Norm was 57 then). This prosecutor has infected cases long before and since. Personal, professional, political, and criminal consequences attach to Norm Dicks’ willful ignorance of this, and many other criminal escapades. Norm’s not gettin’ any younger and he has his legacy to consider. Shutting me up serves Congressman Dicks’ best interests.

OPPORTUNITY: Well…Norm employs a press secretary. His press secretary has a phone sitting on his desk.

It’s worth mentioning in closing that Congress in general, and Congressman Dicks in particular, has turned against the American people when it comes to oversight of the military, and protecting our servicemen. This is an extraordinarily ominous development. If we do not stand up and fight back, the damage only worsens.

Should anyone care to confirm this report, feel free to contact George Behan at: 202.226.1175 or email George Behan

Inspector McConnell may be reached at: 253.815.4723 or email: Larry McConnell

For Inspector McConnell: Feel free to contact me should I have any part of this public report incorrect. I'm happy to make necessary amendments. You know how to reach me.

Happy birthday Norm.

Here endth the lesson.
