1960ies (Late)

    BY the late 60s, the Government's secret war against Scientology had expanded to international dimensions, involving the CIA; the overseas arm of the Drug Enforcement Administration (then BNDD); U. S. embassies and diplomatic outposts; and "friendly" foreign intelligence agencies.

    Attention was focused principally upon the 3,280-ton motor vessel, the Apollo, operated by the church as a training ship for management personnel. It also provided L. Ron Hubbard, the church founder, with a place to conduct various kinds of research free of constant raids and intrusions by minions of the federal Government.

    During the entire ten years that the Apollo sailed the high seas, no proof was ever obtained by the legion of international spies monitoring her that the ship or its crew or passengers ever did anything illegal.

    A CIA memorandum reports that there was no indication that the ship's activities posed any intelligence or security risk.

    The Defense Investigative Service, whose spooks were also keeping a close watch on the Apollo and its complement, likewise found nothing, on close inspection, to complain of. (O.ᅠGarrison, Playing Dirty, pg. 75)

    Rodney Austin, the legal expert on civil liberties and constitutional law, voiced the opinion that there were four reasons for surveillance of the ship and infiltration of its crew, namely: 

    1. it was part of an IRS-U. S. Customs joint intelligence scheme; 
    2. the privacy insisted upon by the ship; 
    3. the absence of a recognizable commercial purpose; and 
    4. the entrenched animus of the Government, bent on "getting" the church.

    The world press weighed in with their customary lurid and inaccurate reporting, dubbing the Apollo a mystery ship" and implying that strange things were happening aboard the vessel.

    The truth was that in every port where she docked, both passengers and crew of the Apollo enjoyed open and cordial relations with the people of their host country. The substantial amount of money they spent with local merchants was a welcome boost to the economy of the small Mediterranean ports. Scientology artists and musicians from the ship gave free concerts and entertainment.

    But if the people of the host countries enjoyed the fun and fellowship with the young Scientologists, the U. S. Navy took a different view. In an interview with a Swedish journalist, one Captain Lemon, Naval attaché at the American Embassy in Athens, told the reporter that the Apollo was operated by a "vague, silent and sinister organization," the activities of which were unknown. He suspected that dangerous drugs, especially marijuana were in circulation aboard ship, and stated that he had counseled U.S. naval personnel on liberty not to "get mixed up with trouble."

    Captain Lemon vouchsafed the opinion that it was highly likely that U.S. Army deserters may have taken refuge on the ship in an attempt to escape foreign military service.

    The naval officer denied that he had given a direct order forbidding Naval personnel to pay courtesy visits to the Apollo, but admitted that he had "strongly advised" such a prohibition to the Captains of U.S. Naval vessels in the area. (O.ᅠGarrison, Playing Dirty, pg. 76/77)

    Re: Intelligence

    The following are possibilities for collecting data.

    1. Infiltration.
    2. Bribery.
    3. Buying information.
    4. Robbery.
    5. Blackmail.

    The last two are, of course illegal. (Chronology of Policies and GOs concerning the attacks on Dianetics/Scientology)

    Re Life Article And Letter

    It is interesting that "Life" Magazine in the US has been a violent foe of Dianetics and Scn for 18 years.

    In England the heads of the largest newspaper chain are also members of the UK World Federation of Mental Health confederate board of directors.

    This is an old intelligence trick – to own or control a press chain in an enemy country.

    It was done by German agents, for instance, to keep Spain out of the war.

    Earlier the "Saturday Evening Post" published an article full of quotes never made. It has gone downhill as a magazine over the years. WFMH connected publishers often do.

    So some of the US magazine and newspaper chains are controlled by the WFMH.

    The Intelligence, espionage pattern is very plain here. In the "Life" article a psychotic is pushed into the org to get no case gain, his identity secret, to get discreditable data and he then writes an article. But he is already a mental patient.

    Local Agents WFMH has confederates in every country and many states with sub-chapters in most US cities. They are always named "National" and have "Mental Health" in their name at nation or state level.

    There is a National Institute of Mental Health in Washington DC that is US Government. The only one in the world really connected to a government. It does WFMH printing for it at US expense!

    All the rest of the "National" groups are phonies. They are only private groups. Following orders from overseas.

    These groups secretly shoot down chiropractors, churches, any Western culture or advance or healing action. Their standard propaganda line is:

    1. everyone is insane.
    2. psychiatrists should be next to every world leader treating them weekly.
    3. anyone should be subject to seizure as insane without process as law
    4. Siberian bill they seek to get passed and once almost did pass through Congress).
    5. Scientology breaks up families.
    6. Scientology prevents people from coming to their psychiatrist to seek real help.
    7. There are not enough psychiatrists or "facilities".
    8. All boundaries should be destroyed.
    9. All constitutions should be destroyed.
    10. Any current campaign they may have to get something destroyed for a big Western take over.

    A conspiracy formed at the WFMH Congress in London in August 1968 resulted in simultaneous identical political channel attacks on Scn in several countries. The "Life" article was crudely timed to be part of this.

    And every branch of every rightest group would be delighted to know these US "mental health" groups are controlled by a foreign group which has Communists on its board of directors.

    The American Medical Association and the American Psychiatric Association and such are members of the main world group and are just pawns.

    They are called "Mental Healing" but their literature talks only about world domination and seldom about any cases.

    They were founded by a psychotic named Clifford Beers and carry on the tradition.

    It is interesting that WFMH says publicly there is "no difference between right and wrong" and "psychiatrists are the only enlightened people who know this". By traditional law, sanity is defined as the "ability to tell right from wrong." (Chronology of Policies and GOs concerning the attacks on Dianetics/Scientology)

    11. To make and send reports on same to the D/Guardians for Intelligence. 

    PRODUCTION TARGET:  

      This is a continuing programme.  A lot of work has been done thus far; however, some areas have done little or nothing [missing words] should immediately do so.
