The National Enquirer announced this week that it had a "blockbuster world exclusive" involving some FBI documents that describe, in the Enquirer's words, "Scientology Leaders' HOOKER ORGY!"

Actually, the documents detail an investigation of Ronnie Miscavige Jr, older brother to Scientology leader David Miscavige, that took place long after Ronnie had left Scientology. And what the Enquirer didn't say about its "exclusive" is that these documents have been available for months at a website set up by the Church of Scientology itself to smear Ronnie and his father, Ron Miscavige Sr., in order to hit back at Ron's book, Ruthless, that came out in May.

Ron Miscavige Sr. introduced his son David to Scientology in 1969 as they looked for a solution to the 9-year-old's asthma. The entire family eventually got into Scientology and moved to England to pursue higher courses and so David could become an auditor. After returning to the US, David got close to Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard and eventually, after Hubbard's death in 1986, took over the organization. In 1985, Ron, a musician, joined the "Sea Org" and played trumpet and led Scientology's orchestra, which played frequently at church events around the world. But eventually, as Ron describes in his book, he became disaffected with Scientology under the dictatorial rule of his son, and in March 2012 he and his wife Becky Bigelow escaped from a compound near Hemet, California.
