I knew a guy he mentioned, Ken Mortenson, somewhat in the early & mid 70's as he was on staff at TC Org in some capacity, not sure at all what his post was as I had just barely done the com course and would just slightly get to know a lot of the older guys I'd see come and go.
I never saw him again shortly thereafter and Headley sure filled in the blanks for me.
He rose up to high level positions I'm unfamiliar with only to be busted down to folder page and wasn't allowed to tell anyone how high up he once was and had to forgetfully accept being a pee-on!
What kind of tortuous degradation did upper management enjoy implementing?
That's why I don't buy that people blow due in any part due to overts or withholds or their own positions would have become vacant when they blew due to theirs.
