An Introduction to NTSB Chairman Mark V. Rosenker

By Alex Constantine

Before his appointment to NTSB acting chairman, Major General Mark Rosenker was director of the White House MILITARY Office under GW Bush, and "in this capacity, he had responsibility for policies, personnel and plans that involve Department of Defense assets in direct support of the President." The mention of his work for the Electronic Industries Alliance (EIA) is interesting in light of Flight 3407's intelligence connections - the chairman of the EIA is David McCurdy, formerly a conservative Democratic congressman from Iowa (key platforms: military preparedness, family values), chairman of the House Intelligence Committee - and an unabashed booster of the CIA who publicly praises Langley's jackalized covert ops. (Wikipedia: "McCurdy had been suggested as a possible Secretary of Defense under President Barack Obama."):
