RE: ARMSTRONG - Faulty Researcher

There have been several briefings from Gerry Armstrong about the life of L. Ron Hubbard which have been faulty and show irresponsible research:

Testimony and evidence shows that while Gerald Armstrong claimed to have been able to document nearly every day of L. Ron Hubbard's life, he had in fact made very poor attempts at research, which had resulted in badly distorted facts.

When asked in court "Did you obtain documents from any official agency of the United States to document day by day where Mr. Hubbard was during Mr. Hubbard was during the Second World War?" His answer was "no..."

Armstrong also claimed that Mr. Hubbard had never seen combat during World War II. The evidence again contradicts Armstrong's assertions. While commanding PC 815, Mr. Hubbard and his crew sank one Japanese submarine and disabled another in an encounter which lasted three days.

When questioned on this evidence in court, Armstrong admitted that he merely "went through some books on the subject. But that was it. I never went to D.C. And I obviously never checked the sources that whoever did this research was able to check. So I stand corrected."
