OSA capabilities

    Who thinks OSA is a toothless tiger whose best efforts are to put up crappy websites to smear critics?

    Who believes that OSA has no personnel left?

    Who thinks that OSA has gone quiet because "We are winning!" "Look at all the media & blogs and stuff. They can't do anything!"

    If you think OSA is not "doing anything" in this environment then you are stupid. If you think Alanzo is OSA's best weapon, then you are stupid.

    If you think a 3 billion dollar organisation whose prime defense is to attack, is sitting back and doing NOTHING then you are stupid.

    PR is overt.
    Intelligence is always covert.

    Have a read of some of the OSA hat pack. Then tell me how one squawking, disagreeable heretic is OSA's best move to disrupt ESMB. Oh please. Wake the fuck up.

    And after you've read that, feel free to call me a moonbat, insane, ridiculous, paid shill, agent provocateur, whatever you like. Go on, I dare you.

    For someone who is "about as far from a conspiracy theorist as you can get" (if I remember that correctly), isn't that controlled opposition article a bit near the mark?

    Intelligence IS always covert.

    But OSA does operations that have nothing to do with intel.

    That is an overt operation, not covert. That was designed to make Rathbun snap. It worked (sorta).

    Do you think they don't do covert ops anymore?
  8. Type4_PTS

    Of course they do covert ops.

    My point is that they also do ops that are not covert.

    Collecting intel isn't their only function.

    It's their main function. Think about it, seriously.

    I have no idea as to whether Alanzo is one of OSA's weapons.

    But it doesn't matter to me whether he is or isn't.

    He's gaslighting the ESMB community. THAT is not speculative.

    And OSA would be happy with it I'm quite sure regardless of whether it is their op or was just thought up by Alanzo on his own.

    I have no disagreement with that. As far as I know it IS their main function.

    But not their only one.

    Explain why criticism, disagreement and an opposite opinion are gaslighting.
  13. Type4_PTS

    Type4_PTS Diamond Invictus SP

    Those things in themselves are not gaslighting.

    I'm off to work and when I return in 10 hours or so will explain why I made the gaslighting accusation.

    Ok, I'll probably be offline much of tomorrow. I have two property valuations. (Oh the hells of a divorce). I'll check when I get time.

    With the essentially unlimited funds at Miscavige's disposal, he can outsource activities formerly done by unpaid or minimally paid drone OSA staff. Legal and surveillance have operated this way for many years. SoCo (social coordination) such as NarConon, CCHR, Way to Happiness Foundation and others will enlist unsuspecting non-scientology cells and disavow their association with the puppeteer himself. Thanks for the Hat Packs by the way!

    No, their main function is nullifying critics and enemies.To accomplish that, they can use covert ops, overt ops, PR, lawyers, and other methods.

    Collecting intel is the TOOL they use to determine the best method of attack, and to decide whether the attack should be overt or covert.

    You're welcome.

    So unlimited funds, Scientology under attack, DM still at the helm......and OSA is doing what...Nothing? Putting up smear sites? That's it? I don't think so.

    If there is one thing the GO and OSA should have learned in the 1970's, is that having operations being conducted by Scientologists points directly back to Scn Management. Even if there is no paper trail, the mere fact that an illegal act was performed by a Scientologist indicates he probably did it for Scn.

    Things done by PI's, through a string of cut-outs, are easier to distance yourself from.

    We see the overt ops - smear sites etc.
    We see the PR - Superbowl ads.
    We see the lawyers - Monique Yingling

    How do you know if a covert operation is taking place? Until they screw it up, you don't.
