Patron with Honors
Wow! The cost of buying a last-minute ticket to the Middle East must be horrendous. And the obsessive paranoia that would generate stalking behavior like that is even more horrendous. But the most amazing thing to me is that there is no benefit to the Church/OSA in going to so much expense and effort. The only imaginable effect would be to discomfit the person they are stalking.
That's tens of thousands of dollars just to make someone uncomfortable?
I can't even count the ways that is insane.
It is Scientology policy. See more here: http://www.xenu-directory.net/practices/fairgame.html
Interestingly enough, many of the people who appear on that website exposing Fair Game are people that M & M eschew. Despite the overwhelming evidence that Hubbard created this policy, M & M insist that it is Miscavige doing this, Hubbard was innocent and never did nasty things like that....now *that* is insane.
