Lies Debunked: FOIA Supporters


Scientology's doublecross

Scientology's® Claims

One of the most potent weapons against government secrecy is the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). For more than twenty years, the Church of Scientology has been an active and outspoken supporter of laws to strengthen FOIA and of those who use the Act the effectively expose government secrets.

The Church of Scientology is widely known as one of the most efficient users of FOIA and the results of its many investigations which have made use of the Act have regularly appeared in Freedom.

During the late 1970s, Freedom ran a continuing series which exposed government manipulation of the media. Such efforts cultivating friendly reporters as intelligence sources, planting false news stories and squelching stories critical of the government or its officials.

One of the longest running series of stories to appear in Freedom was the more than two-year investigation into secret government mind control and chemical-biological warfare experiments.

Starting in the early 1950s, government intelligence services launched a program known as MK Ultra. Numerous secret projects were conducted under the umbrella of Mk Ultra. Among the first were deadly mind-control experiments designed to find ways to control human behavior using drugs, electric shock and brain operations.

Such experiments were intended to create the perfect spy -- one who could not be compromised even if tortured to death, one who would carry out any order and one who could even be be programed to murder on command.

During the late 1970s, the Church published numerous FOIA documents exposing these secret mind control experiments.

And now for the truth

What you just read is a more elaborate attempt by the Scientology crime syndicate to justify its "Operation Snow White" espionage crimes which resulted in a number of Scientology's ringleaders going to prison. These issues have been discussed in other web pages here on the Volunteer Minister's web site and they can be found at:

While Scientology's ringleaders like to publically claim that the governments of the world are all engaged in massive conspiracies and -- thanks to the courage of Scientologists who fly in and save the day! -- Scientology's leaders have "forgotten" to tell us a few things about these conspiracies.

L. Ron Hubbard's profound insanity, his unfortunate drug problem, and his criminal urges drives Scientology's freakishly bizarre conspiracy beliefs and such insanity is mirrored in the delusional nut rants of their followers -- and official spokespeople such as you read above.

It was reported by Ms. Stacy Brooks of the Lisa McPherson Trust that some of the remaining followers of Scientology are being told that she and another member of the Trust Mr. Robert Minton are "off worlders" in keeping with the delusional notion that the efforts to curb Scientology's criminal abuses and racketeering scams are part of the Galacy-wide conspiracy Scientology's mad messiah L. Ron Hubbard warned followers about.

While most people would find such notions amusing -- and to be honest I certainly do at times -- such notions are dangerous and historically proven deadly. Convince people that those "enemies" around you are not human and one removes the compunctions against murdering them since they're not really human.

Scientology's "Volunteer Ministers" won't tell you any of these things, of course, and for obvious reasons.
