For a while, Bob Minton was number one on Scientology's enemies list.

The Church was fairly convinced that Bob was a PDH'd
{http://www.scientology.org/en_US/feature/glossary/#p} psych case
(someone that's been treated by a psychiatrist) that was somehow
involved in a conspiracy and given millions to destroy Scientology.
Per LRH policy, Minton must have some very serious "crimes" to be so
critical of Scientology and it was OSA's responsibility to find and
expose those "crimes" and shut him up.

They would never believe for a moment that Bob was just a rich guy
with a cause he could sink his teeth into. That didn't fit in with
their paranoid world view and so the Church of Scientology went after
Bob Minton with everything they had.

I was an OSA invest volunteer during Bob Minton's "Reign of Terror" on
the church and I'm not going to discuss the pro's and con's of Bob
Minton, but rather my participation in harassing him for the Church of
Scientology.

I was not a rogue agent of the Church and only did things upon their
orders and instructions. As an OSA volunteer, I had a rather high
security clearance and was very trusted to follow orders and keep my
mouth shut. In order to obtain the security clearance I had to have
certain qualifications including giving them my full life history
{http://www.holysmoke.org/cos/history3.htm}

Orders for specific "handlings" on Bob Minton would come down the
command channels from OSA Int (International) to Mary Francis Newey,
(MF) who was the Dir of Investigations for OSA Boston. MF would call
me in and we would discuss what was needed by her seniors at OSA Int
and go over the plans to accomplish these. MF always to the time to
get my agreement and plan out exactly how we would proceed. MF's
immediate superior was a man at OSA Int named Neil Riley. She would
refer to him as Mr. Riley.


Due to Bob Minton's status as number the # 1 SP on the planet, he was
given a full 24/7 coverage by OSA, their staff, their hired PI's and
OSA Volunteers.

OSA had to know his every move, I was not privy to all the information
on Bob or who they were using as insiders to collect information. But
I can tell you that when he was in the Boston/New Hampshire area, it
was a time when OSA Boston would drop everything and made sure they
knew his whereabouts every minute of the day. They followed him and
would know or find out who he was meeting with, and used this
information to further harass him. Maureen O'Keefe the current Dir of
Invest Boston Org (2004 to present -2006) told me many stories of her
direct dealings with Bob Minton and in 2001 or 2002, Maureen told me
that over 80 staff had been moved from OSA Int to OSA Flag in
Clearwater to deal with Bob Minton and the LMT
http://lisatrust.bogie.nl/}. I'll be discussing Maureen O'Keefe and
her activities in another report.


There is a timeline of harassment on Bob Minton located here:

http://www.fairgamed.org/minton.htm

I was involved in this particular entry:

February 1998: While Mr. Minton was vacationing with his family on the
French Caribbean island of St. Bart's, Scientology operatives flew to
the island and passed out fliers in the town and on the beach where
Mr. Minton and his family were relaxing. The flier contained a number
of scurrilous charges, including a claim that Mr. Minton associated
with "accused child molesters."


I was contacted by OSA to help with this one. The "op" was finding
out exactly where Bob Minton was located.

I remember getting a phone call from Mary Frances, the then Dir of
Invest, Boston OSA. She explained that they had "lost track" of Bob
and she had orders to find him. She knew he was somewhere in the
Caribbean but had to know exactly where he was. As always, this was a
priority cycle and had to be done right away.

When doing an Op for OSA, the procedure it to discuss what needs to be
done and then concoct schemes to get the information. LRH called this
"flair"


In I was told by the DSA Boston Tony Chrambanis, that I had "flair"
and that this was why I was good at doing Ops for them.

MF had Bob's travel agent's contact information and instructed me to
contact her and schmooze her into giving me Bob's location.

As always MF and I drilled out or role played the conversation I would
have with the travel agent first and work out all the kinks and had
"my story" all worked out in advance so that I would sound natural.

I made the call to the travel agent. OSA already knew her name and
number because they knew everyone that Bob and his wife were in
contact with.

As per the drill I did with MF, I explained to the travel agent that
Therese Minton was a good friend of mine and that she had told me all
about this wonderful getaway in the Caribbean and I convinced my
husband to take me there as an anniversary gift. So.. would she
please tell me the location of this place so I could make reservation
with her.

Well of course the travel agent is going to give me the information.
She sees this as a sale, and not as a creepy op being run on her by an
evil cult. I mean come on! Who is going to believe something like
that? Most people would never imagine such going's on and
Scientology was counting on people being oblivious to ops.

Of course based on the Church policy of "need to know" I had no idea
how OSA knew that Bob was in the Caribbean. The Intel or Invest
Branch of the Church operates on a "need to know" basis and so I was
not given those kinds of details.

So Bob Minton, if you still read critical websites, you now know how
they found you on St. Bart's.

I'm going to save my apology to you and your family until the end,
because I have more to tell you.

I was once asked to intercept Bob at Logan airport in Boston and make
sure he got on a specific flight to Clearwater. I would say this was
some time in the summer of 98 or 99. He was not supposed to know I
was watching him, and I doubt he figured it out as I am a very
unassuming looking woman. I blend in very well. I arrived at Logan
airport a good half hour before he arrived. I was already sitting in
the departure area, reading a magazine, waiting for him. He sat down
and I could clearly see him but I just kept reading my mag and eating
my chowder from the Legal Seafood kiosk.

I caught him looking around to see if he could spot someone he knew
but we had never met prior to this and I made sure I did not make eye
contact with him. I had my eyes mostly on the chowder. ;-)

I waited until Bob boarded the plan and then I left. When I got
outside the airport I called OSA Boston (phone #) and Gerard Renna the
DSA Boston at that time answered the phone.

I told Gerard that Bob had boarded the plane and Gerard wanted to know
if I saw the plane take off with "Bob Minton" in it. I said, no, I
had not stayed long enough to see the plane depart as I had to get
home and Gerard was upset with me for not doing the job to a "Done".
Gerard was also concerned that he was going to get his ass reamed due
to my error, because if Bob Minton didn't get off that plane, in
Clearwater, at the expected time, then Gerard's ass was going to be
grass. Mowed grass and Flag was the lawnmower.

I guess he stayed on the plane and arrived in Clearwater as expected,
because I never heard another word about it.

I've written another article about "The D line" or trash stealing tech
and will admit to stealing trash in front of Bob and Therese Minton's
house on Beacon Hill in Boston. The Minton trash was always of
interest to OSA, even if Bob hadn't been to the house in months. It
didn't matter to them that Bob wasn't around because they figured
Therese might be more likely to be slipshod with the paper work and
they could get lots of info from her trash.

Stealing trash from Therese and Bob Minton's house was done exactly
the same way as stealing Steve Hassan's trash. After all, I was a
Scientologist and didn't squirrel the tech.

I'm sorry to say I don't remember a lot of specifics of what was in
Therese Minton's trash, but I do remember there were empty envelope's
with return addresses and these were used to further investigate the
family and any connections they had in an attempt to harass Bob and
his family.


Too Vicious Even For Me

One day (1998/1999) MF called me up and said she needed a favor. A
favor was the term she used to mean she wanted me to do some dirty
work for OSA.

When it was a particularly nasty deed, I would have to go to a store
and buy a calling card, go to a phone booth and call a phone booth
number that MF provided for me. She would be waiting at the phone
booth at a designated time so we could talk and not have our
conversation traced in any way.

At this time, Bob Minton was living separately from his wife Therese.
Therese lived in their home on Beacon Hill in Boston, while Bob lived
both in New Hampshire and Clearwater. Bob was also having an open
affair with an ex-Scientologist named Stacy Brooks.

The Church wanted to try to turn Therese Minton against her husband.
Therese already knew about the Minton/Brooks affair but Therese was
not openly hostile to Bob nor was she interested in giving the Church
any ammunition to use against her husband.


MF explained to me that someone at OSA Int had the idea that an
anonymous phone call should be made to Therese Minton to tell her that
while she was away on vacation to England, visiting her family, that
Bob stayed in the Beacon Hill house (Therese's house) and brought his
slutty girlfriend, Stacy Brooks with him. The idea was to pretend to
be a friend of Therese's that cared that she was being treated so
shabbily by Bob by bringing his mistress into her home where she and
her children lived.

The Church wanted to do this because they wanted Therese to turn
against Bob and give them all the dirt she knew about Bob so they
could forever silence him from criticizing Scientology.

I thought about it but told MF I couldn't do it. I thought it was
going too far and that Therese Minton was not attacking Scientology
and was an innocent victim in this battle and I refused to take part
in it.

MF told me she understood and dropped the subject. I don't know if
this Op was carried out or not. OSA had me do all kind of nasty
covert stuff for them but fortunately, I drew the line on that one.

A Really Dumb Caper

Within a few days of the LMT (Lisa McPherson Trust) opening their
doors, I got a call from MF saying she had for another task for me to
do.

Per MF, Bob Minton and his group of SP's had opened up some sort of
group in downtown Clearwater in order to continue his harrassment and
attacks on Scientology. I remember thinking it was a pretty ballsy
move at the time.

MF said she had orders from OSA Int to "tie up the phone lines" at
LMT. My instructions were to call LMT with a story that a relative of
mine was in some sort of cult. I was not to say Scientology, as that
would be repeating the enemy line, so I had to use some other "known
cult". I was to call and just talk, talk, talk about it and try to
tie up their phone lines. If I was asked how I heard about the LMT, I
would say that a friend of mine reads the internet and I got the
information from her.

I had to make this call by first purchasing a calling card that they
sell in the convenience stores and then go to a phone booth to make
the call virtually untraceable to me.

I remember thinking this was a really dumb idea and didn't see the
purpose of it, but like many things in Scientology, someone gets a
"bright idea" and it's off to the races, wasting everyone's time, and
resources to get something really dumb accomplished.

OSA operates just like terrorist cells in that one person does not
know what the others were doing.

You just had to trust that this was the most ethical group on the
planet and you did what you were told because they were doing this to
help Scientology.


Apology to Robert and Therese Minton and their children.

I was a dedicated Scientology for almost 30 years and when they
convinced me that there were SP's out to destroy Scientology that at
time I felt I was doing an ethical and brave thing. Of course, in
retrospect, when I realized Bob was just speaking out against what he
saw were abuses by Scientology, I was filled with shame and regret for
my actions.

I know it's a bit too late and the damage has already been done, but I
do sincerely apologize for any and all actions I may have performed
while in the employ or as a volunteer for the Church of Scientology.
I can try to justify my actions a thousand different ways, but none of
that really matters to me now. What I did was despicable and my
exposing this vile cult is my amends. By writing this information
and getting it webbed, I may be putting myself and my family in harms
way, but this is my way of setting things right and hope this
information will someday be useful to others that are being attacked
by the Church of Scientology.

Ow girl, it's great to learn some of the details of the tricks performed by the
clams against Bob and family for years. Thanks for explaining these.

It's more than passionating, and I presume it's also great to have to apologize
ate the same time as explaining one's own "overts" and crimes performed on
orders of the crime cult idiots who can't imagine that their schemes won't ever
become credible, since their "time track" is so full of millions of such overts,
lies and MWHs that they can't possibly ever appear "snow white" to anyone, even
to themselves.

That's the price they have to pay.

Besides, telling your parts in it is probably one of the best therapies to get
rid of the weight of cultic indoctrinations.

Wow. Some story Patty, really appreciate your telling it from an
inside view. Never doubted it was happening at the time. Even the
FBI would be oblivious to ops of this sort.

I doubt scn used regular members to go after judges, but eventually
one or more of the OSA ops will come out and verify what Jesse Prince
said about corrupting judges through pressure on their friends and
family.

These revelations about Scientology, Inc. tactics should cause any

measures?" Of course the answer is that their operation is a church in

It'd be quite fun to set up a counter-lurk on the watchers. If the next
time they went to move Tory's turtle, they found a note under it saying
"Smile!", I sure the *flash-photos* would be priceless! And a simple
lo-jack type tracking transmitter for magnetic attachment to the bottom of
cars wouldn't be hard. (A fancy one with GPS would be too expensive to
waste on them.) Attaching it without being seen would be fairly simple if
they're going to park for hours at a time repeated over a number of days.

In this day of Internet, computers, wireless webcams and other toys, their
stone-age tactics are going to get them badly burnt one day soon.

Think of the video of Peter "droopy drawers" Ramsay, and multiply by a
considerable pucker factor. (Add sound and colour too--but NO
smell-o-vision!)

Patty....

Thank you so very much for posting all of this information!
I remember well the fear I felt when I first left, and told my OSA Int Top
Secret Internet Mafia story......I truly was scared for my life, but found
great relief doing just what you're doing. It's the best, as once you've
woken up, you're making it public. Congratulations on your courage, and
helping way more people than you can imagine.

I remember apologizing to Bob Minton, as I started the "Bob must be paid by
the psychs". My theory was this: "I grew up around people with money, and no
one would throw away that much money....he ~must~ be getting paid by the
psychs". I was dead wrong.

Once I left, I told Bob Minton I was very sorry, and here's what he said to
me:
"Tory, you can tell me you're sorry...........and that you were just being a
good Scientologist, but here's how I feel: You did what you did,
and only you can take full responsibility for that, period".

I never forgot that, and although strong, it's quite true. If you ever saw
"A Few Good Men", in the end the one army guy says, "We were just following
orders! We didn't do anything wrong" (Which I Know you're not saying,
Patty!). But it's a similar point Bob was making to me: His partner says:
"Yes we did...............we were supposed to protect the weak and we didn't
do our jobs". (paraphrase)

To any and all Scientologists reading this: Scientology ~~does~~get people
there like Joel Phillips to do HORRIBLE things like posting endless lies
about people, and has him say "It's my site". To him, it's "No big deal". It
IS a big deal...................and don't you forget it.
Don't do their dirty work. Say, "No...I won't do that", as thank God Patty
did above, for her own sake as well as Minton's wife. The more people that
actually keep their personal integrity in, and don't act as floormats, the
more exposure of the truth shall occur, and the less they can hurt others.

Thank you Patty for making a huge Dent in this totalitarian organization
that works so hard to make less of people like you,
and me, and all the other critics with FACTS. Keep up the great work: I'm
proud of you~~I KNOW what it takes to finally speak out and it's a lot...but
it only gets better and better and better. :)

Taking other people's trash directly back to the Org is against policy.

A cheap, loud piezo beeper that goes off randomly in the middle of the
night? As funny as it would be, I dunno if that's such a good idea these
days. Besides, they'd turn that practical joke around pretty quickly:
"Critics plant hoax bomb!"

Magnetically clamping a dead fish to them might be nice. Pity if it was a

Any counter-lurk would have to be done on the quiet, of course. No point in
talking about it on the phone if they're already listening, or running wires
in the garden while they're watching.

Just as a comment, not a rebuke :)

Arguing about whether Scientology is a religion *or* a Cult *or* a
'Church' is perennial on ARS and in Scientology Criticism in general,
and I think it's one of the least 'productive' aspects.

The words 'Church' or 'Religion' or 'Cult' are so diaphanous and multi-
meaninged as to be literally meaningless except as rhetorical brickbats.

They mean anything and nothing, and that's why the 'Church' of
Scientology is so fond of distracting the discussion to the debate; it
takes attention *off* of the very real realities of the 'Church' of
Scientology and the 'philosophy' of Scientology and the 'actions' of the
'Church' of Scientology and the *mandates* of the 'religion' of
Scientology.

The 'Church' is willing to argue about whether it's a religion or a cult
or a church from now to doomsday, because it means nothing and steals
desperately needed 'airtime' and 'sound bites' from discussion of the
very concrete and quantifiable and demonstrable abuses and activities
and intentions of the 'Church'.

For a sociologist, the words may have some meaning, but that is not how
they are used in public forums, so it's best to ignore them and get back
to things that are less slippery; such as 'Keeping Scientology Working';
Fair Game; Disconnection; Fraud; Subversion; Corruption; Perjury;
Extortion or any of the other 'religious' rituals of Hubbardism.

From my own personal viewpoint, I think that Scientologists *do* see
Scientology as a 'religion', although they might be the last to
recognize it, being under the impression that they're just 'faking out
the wogs'.

Thanks very much Tory, I've only recently come to realize how very evil
the C of S has been.

My actions were done by me and know one else. I had plenty of opportunity
to say no, or back out or refuse. I did what was asked of me because I
thought
I was doing the right thing.

It took some courage to come here and post this information, but it took
more
courage to face myself and the rotten things I did for my "church". That's
the part
the hurt the most and I'm done beating myself up about it. Posting has been
quite wonderful as it has allowed me to unburden myself of these "hidden"

done for Scn.

Thank you for speaking out about these abuses, I now know what it took for
you to do this. It sure ain't easy.

Thank you for doing that. It takes a big person to do it.

This is one of the great objections I have with
Scientology, that it has long attacked people, such
as Paulette Cooper, but never apologizes, never
examines its behavior, never changes for the better
because it cannot say "I did wrong". This is a sign of
real growth in a person, not the peudo-ethics Scientology
peddles. It looks like they can't aim that high.

Scientology can never be wrong. Look at the arguments put out here after
they had my bike towed.
I MUST have parked illegally, because legally parked vehicles NEVER get
towed. And, of course, Scientology PIs would NEVER do anything as
unethical as posing as a restaurant manager!

Amazingly warped logic they use to justify the unjustifiable.

Maybe it's some kind of secret code or a decorating tip from Stacy?

You have quite a ride ahead of you Patty, like Tory, also a
very exceptional person...now look at her.. speaking
nationally and being greeted with a standing ovation and full
of life, dancing in the moonlight.

Not everyone has that gift...I think as Tory said that it
comes from a core integrity.. you demonstrate that also, and
an extremely human and a writing style that proves your
intelligence... all that credibilty will have big effects in
getting this fraud exposed.

. From here I think you will go right out the top as you
have noticed some of the benefits already.

Perhaps next some of the heavy inside financial scammers will
see their way to speaking up...or one of their wives will
speak up to as more are sent to prison... just one of those
speaking would open things wide. I think its inevitable.

The next financial panic will spin off the court cases and
discovery that will force those issues...Reed Slatkin will be
looking at getting his parole requests denied and years added
to his sentence for lying to the court... his choice will be
to come clean or rot in prison.


On the issue of repairing the damges... personally coming out
and standing forward as yourself, Tory, Chuck and others have
done more than heals the damage in you personally over time,
it seems to make the person much stronger...and it heals the
damage to some extent in the larger public who learns how the
cult operated, and by what mechanisms people were attracted
then ruined.

Taking personal responsibilty for what thousands of other
people did, some as deliberate criminals and others entrapped
in the brainwash is not warranted in my view, regardless
Hubbards insane notions... one is responsible for what oneself
does... not the rest of the forking world.

Hubbard spun a huge trap,...making others 'responsible' for
the results of the massive devastation he so carefully
engineered. One has a responsibilty to cure himself, see the
mechanisms, in my case the egocentric base structure and
corrupt view that spawns.... the rest follows.

My memory is certainly not what is used to be ;-). I can't think of many
details right now but people may post things that will trigger memories and
when that happens I will be sure to write more specific things.

I do remember Maureen talking to me about the LMT and bragging how Stacy
was very jealous of Maureen's comm line to Bob and Stacy would do everything
she could to stop Bob from getting in comm with her (Maureen).

Also Maureen bragged about her essay to the LMT drove Stacy crazy. I
recently read Stacy's post on that and saw that poor Maureen didn't really
have a clue as to what Stacy was talking about. Maureen saw Stacy's post as
jealously and natter and not what is was, which was a response to Maureen's
deep indoctrination.

Maureen also told me a story about Stacy calling the cops on Maureen for
entering the LMT and how Ben Shaw was very pleased at the way Maureen
handled the cops because she got in all of Scn's PR lines in on Scn and
against the LMT, portraying the LMT as a bunch of haters and nuts.

A few other things...

My first op on the LMT was a few days after it opened. Mary Francis Newey
Stinson ask me to find the LMT mission statement and then call the LMT
pretending to be a relative of someone that joined a cult. I was not to use
Scn but was to use a different cult like the Wiccans.

The idea was that OSA was going to have different OSA operatives make lots
of phone calls into the LMT and tie their lines up.

It seemed like a dumb idea, but I did it anyway. I made one or two phone
calls and then came down with a flu (heh, must have gone pts) so I told MF
that it was too much entheta for me and I didn't want to do it anymore. She
said fine but I think she thought I was a wuss.
