Edward Snowden has a cryptic message on Boeing whistleblower's death

In response to the tragic death of the Boeing whistleblower, Edward Snowden shared a cryptic message, hinting that if anything were to happen to him, it should not be considered a suicide.

The demise of whistleblower John Barnett, who had recently given vital testimony, has sparked a wave of conjecture and unease, as expressed by Edward Snowden. Barnett, who was connected to Boeing, was discovered deceased, and the details surrounding his passing have generated intense speculation.

On Wednesday, Snowden raised an alarm by sharing a troubling message that hinted at possible foul play in the untimely demise of a whistleblower from Boeing.

According to a post made by Jerrick White, an individual who uses the social media platform X, it was stated that Barnett had intentions of returning to Louisiana after his deposition on Mar. 8. However, he decided to remain at his location when the lawyers representing Boeing requested that he stay an additional day in order to complete his testimony. Unfortunately, he was discovered deceased the following morning.

With a screenshot that boldly stated, “If I die, it wasn’t suicide,” Snowden shared the comment once again.

The recent and unfortunate demise of Barnett, a former employee of Boeing, is deeply significant in light of the company’s ongoing legal issues. Barnett, who dedicated 32 years of his life to Boeing before retiring in 2017, tragically took his own life on March 9, according to the BBC. This news is especially concerning due to Barnett’s active participation in a lawsuit against Boeing as a whistleblower.

Mr. Barnett worked for Boeing for 32 years. For seven years, from 2010 to 2017, he worked as a quality control manager at Boeing’s South Carolina plant, which produces the Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

Barnett alleges that in 2016, a senior manager installed a defunct, dented hydraulic pipe on an aircraft. He filed a complaint with Human Resources. Boeing said it investigated but did not confirm the claims.

He raised the issue with management about the lack of other defective parts as he was concerned they had been installed. He claimed that his superiors instructed him to complete paperwork regarding the missing parts but did not find out where the parts were. Managers took no action.

Barnett alleges that workers failed to follow parts tracking procedures, resulting in missing parts and subsequent installation of defective parts. He explained that the purpose of these installations is to prevent delays on the production line and lack of follow-up procedures. A 2017 FAA report found at least 53 “nonconforming” parts were missing, requiring Boeing to take corrective action.

Dave Calhoun, the CEO of Boeing, is under intense scrutiny as the company grapples with a string of airline crises that have caused considerable embarrassment. This unfortunate series of events has resulted in a substantial decline in the company’s stock value, prompting industry experts and analysts to raise concerns about the leadership’s handling of these issues.

Barnett reported that an “accumulation of metal shavings” was found near the flight control electrical system, which could have “catastrophic” consequences if the shavings were able to penetrate the wires. He claims he repeatedly asked his superiors to take action, but they instead moved him elsewhere in the factory.

In 2017, the FAA issued a directive requiring chip removal prior to delivery. Boeing claimed it complied with regulations and worked to improve the design to avoid the problem, but concluded the issue was not an aviation safety issue.
