A few days ago I came into possession of a Scientology "checksheet," or program, by which the organization is training its intelligence personnel to obliterate "enemies." This discovery made me physically ill.
By "enemies," Scientology means the good people who oppose its fraud, abuses and its criminal activities, such as the obliteration of good people.
The cult declared me to be an "enemy" in 2002. I believe it is not possible to obliterate people without violence, in fact without murder.
Just consider how this directive on some cult's intelligence training manual would be viewed? "Never get reasonable about George Bush. Just go all the way in and obliterate him." Or how about "Never get reasonable about the Jews. Just go all the way in and obliterate them." Would the Secret Service and the Anti-Defamation League believe that no crime is intended? No. And neither do I.
I have just written a letter of protest to Scientology leader David Miscavige, who is responsible for the organization’s criminality, for the creation of this checksheet, and for training and directing Scientologist agents to obliterate people like me. See: http://www.gerryarmstrong.org/50grand/writings/letkeman-ltr-miscavige-2003-06-06.html
For the checksheet see: http://www.gerryarmstrong.org/50grand/cult/osa-int-ed-508r.html
I think that fighting back against Miscavige and doing what I can to end the threat of obliteration by his thugs will help me recover.
As is well known, 11 Scientology intelligence personnel were imprisoned in the U.S. for crimes against the Federal Government, discovered in a massive FBI raid on the cult’s intelligence bureau in Los Angeles and Washington, D.C. in 1977. Miscavige has claimed that he disbanded the intelligence bureau, threw all the criminals out of the organization, and stopped all illegal activities in 1981. The "checksheet" I have shows that he was in fact training intelligence personnel in illegalities, and worse, a decade later.
In addition to sending this statement to various media, I am also advising government officials in the U.S. and other countries in which Scientology operates. I believe that the support the U.S. Government has given Scientology for the last decade has been ill-advised, and this now clear intention to obliterate people shows that the U.S. has been supporting a criminal conspiracy.
This obliteration plan also shows that those countries that have opposed Scientology -- notably Germany, France, Belgium and Greece -- were fully justified in their opposition, and that the U.S.’s condemnation of those countries’ opposition was very wrong.
A key to understanding Scientology obliteration solution, which at first glance is unbelievable, is the organization’s policy and practice of black propaganda. Cult founder L. Ron Hubbard ordered that by the broad, relentless and often covert dissemination of lies -- what he called black PR - - his Scientologist agents were to destroy the credibility, reputation and livelihood of his "enemies." In a policy letter entitled "Battle Tactics," from which the "obliteration" idea also comes, Hubbard ordered Scientologists to "degrade the image of the enemy to beast level." Once a person -- even a good person --is degraded to beast level, it becomes easy, in fact laudable to obliterate him or her.
I was a Scientologist for 24 years. I was in the Sea Organization, the pseudo-military core that runs Scientology, and I attained the training level of Class IX Auditor, and the processing level of OT V. When I discovered that I had been lied to and cheated, I left. Since leaving, I have been researching the history, actions and intentions of L. Ron Hubbard, Scientology and Miscavige and his henchman. When I concluded that I had been defrauded out of all those years and all the money I paid to obtain Scientology’s promised results -- promises that are completely false -- I requested a refund of my money (over $61,500) pursuant to the cult’s own refund promise and policy.
Miscavige’s response to my request for a refund was to have me declared a "Suppressive Person." That makes me an "enemy," and a target of Scientology’s notorious "fair game" doctrine. He also ordered that my only daughter, Ann Reinertsen, now Ann Haney, disconnect from me. Threats from Scientology made me leave the U.S. and go to Canada. More threats from Scientology made me leave Canada last year and come to Germany, along with my fiancé Gerry Armstrong, who is himself high on Miscavige’s obliteration list. http://www.gerryarmstrong.org/50grand/introduction.html
Here in Germany, Scientology is known as an anti-democratic cult with criminal tendencies, is kept under observation by the intelligence service, and is not able to get away with the same attacks on its "enemies" that it can in the U.S. Here in Germany, obliterating good people is not tax exempt and protected religious expression.
