The owner of Fresno based Pinnacle Armor has released what he calls, "fraudulently altered documents" the Air Force obtained from the Army.
In the documents: government officials appear to be trying to put "Pinnacle" out of business.
Pinnacle Armor CEO Murray Neal says these altered documents are just one of many areas where military involved fraud has been discovered.
He says with this new evidence is his pocket, military officials will no longer be able to say: "Dragon Skin" doesn't pass the test.
Murray Neal, Pinnacle Armor CEO: "There's vertical splices where they tried putting things together, font sizes are different, alignments vertically and horizontally aren't the same, there's handwritten numbers in there."
Pinnacle Armor CEO, Murray Neal shares with us for the first time, "Dragon Skin" body armor test reports dating back to 2004, he says were fraudulently altered by U.S. military officials.
Neal says the Air Force used the more than 30 page report from the Army to initiate and pursue the debarment of pinnacle armor incorporated.
Neal: "Ffraud's a big deal, and when the federal government is involved in fraud, its an even bigger deal."
When Neal and his company suspected fraud was occurring, his attorneys went to the F.B.I. for advice.
Neal says that's when he was referred to central valley examination services here in Fresno.
The documents were then reviewed by a top forensic document examiner, by the name of James Tarver.
Neal: "We sent it off to the examiners because we don't wanna be speculating. We wanna have inferical proof that it was and we now have it."
The examination results from Tarver's report showed indications of retouching and possible alterations of portions of text and borders.
It also says that some characteristics of these alterations consisted of retouching and the misalignment of letters and numbers.
Neal: "It's just full, there's at least a dozen and a half things that have been picked up by the forensics examiners on this."
But Neal says the fraud doesn't end there.
He also claims that during an Army test shoot at H.P. White Laboratory in Maryland, level IV bullets were fired at a level III vest, that's when according to Neal, the Army claimed the vest failed to stop all of the rounds.
Neal: "Well first of all a level III system isn't designed to stop a level IV threat, but what happened out of all of it that you can take away if you wanna be open minded, it defeated 55 percent of those level IV threats; it should not have defeated any of them."
Now the Pinnacle Armor CEO says all the evidence the military has collected over the years, which he claims, pushed to get Pinnacle Armor debarred, is gone, because he says, it’s all fraudulently based.
Neal: "In the meantime, its even now been a year since the House Armed Services asked for the shoot, still no data. In the meantime, you've got men and women getting hurt, injured, maimed, or killed, for what?"
Military officials at the Pentagon were not available for comment Thursday, as this new information was released after business hours.
Meantime, Murray Neal says the next step is to go to the administrative hearing at the Air Force and push for a federal trial.
