Doktor Hubbard envied and wanted his own SMERSH and he got it. G.O. were "hatted" in standard spy tek, and FCDC was host to their East Coast management operation back in 1977 when raided by the feds. We rubbed shoulders with G.O. staff and they sometimes recruited locals to be Guardian Apprentice Scientologists (G.A.S. members), who happily provided grist for the intel mill.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.
