    There's a lot more good stuff in the 28-page article that hits the web tonight at midnight. And it's just a fraction of what Lawrence Wright will be unloading in an upcoming book about Scientology.

    it is now 9 pm in NY,NY. :hifive:

    It is about time that the world learn about human trafficking, and all foreign people who come to the US to work on Religious Minister visa, and end up as slaves. Their passport confiscated, they have to work as slave for David Miscavige, and it is illegal and sad.
    I sincerely hope that the FBI raids Scientology organizations as Flag, L.A., Celebrity Center, PAC, Twin Peaks, and check identity of workers. Where is Shelly, Herbert Jensen, and others who are in Scientology gulag, forced to work, and can not get out.
    The staff members are thought what to say, how to lie to immigration .:omg:
    They are told one thing, and the true is completely different.
    It is about time that someone in the government investigate the corruption of David Miscavige to benefit himself under the pretense of religion.

    Made the Today Show

    It was on the Today show this morning:

    Some classic responses by the church about the New Yorker's take on the DOJ investigation:

    1) We were unaware of the investigation-well, if true, that is just too bad for them. But my guess is that is a lie.

    2. The New Yorker failed to report the Headley's lawsuit. Well, it was mentioned in the article. The church however, didn't mention it by name. They only stated that the lawsuit resolved the human trafficking issue in favor of the church. Not an entirely accurate representation of the Headley decision.

    Here's another crosspost from the "comments" section of Martys blog from a "Brian S":

    This is the time for any and all readers of this board who have actual personal knowledge of, or actual physical documentation relating to, violations of the law by the Co$ to contact your local FBI office. It’s easy; they’re in the phone book in that “government” section near the front. Call that number and tell the receptionist that you have information that may be relevant to an ongoing investigation. He or she will ask what investigation that may be, and tell them it’s the investigation of the Co$ that you saw on the news. That person will find out what agents are involved in the case, and one of them _will_ call you back. It may take a while, but they will talk to you.
    This could be the Berlin Wall moment for the Co$, and any bit of information you have – in your memory or on paper – could be the crucial bit of info or corroboration that the FBI needs to make its case against DM and the Co$. If you want to Free Heber, this is the way to do it.

    Nice headline! Hope this goes viral! :yes::happydance:

    I noticed in the last paragraph of that article it says:

    "The Church of Scientology has denied the existence of "any place of confinement" at Gold Base, its international headquarters located outside San Jacinto. "

    I hope they make that very same denial under oath on the witness stand.
