Blog: Scientology Black Bag Roster - 2014-03-17
Mike Rinder posted an informative piece today called The Black Bag Department. In it he exposes the identity of some key Scientology 'professional' operatives used to terrorize and intimidate perceived enemies as well as some of their tactics. Mike's article reminded me of a couple other important names that need to be added to the roster.
For many years in the Washington D.C. area Scientology's go-to gumshoe has been Harry Gossett. Gossett, like Ingram, has apparently been fond of the Scientology bonuses available when he impersonates an agent of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, see link.
Another important operative historically has been John J. (aka J.J.) Gaw of Moreno Valley, California. Gaw was responsible for the original electronic and physical surveillance set up on Pat Broeker in the late eighties and early nineties. Mr. Gaw also handled the sensitive assignment of investigating the personal lives of IRS agents, flanking the quest to attain tax exemption for Scientology.
