Jesse Prince, witness to Scientology's ugliest behavior, spills it all in new book - 2018-09-14
About halfway through Jesse Prince's book, The Expert Witness: My Life at the Top of Scientology, it suddenly dawned on us why we were enjoying it so much — this, we realized, was the book Marty Rathbun should have written years ago.
In 2013, Rathbun, who was once the second-highest ranking official in Scientology and was known as David Miscavige's scary enforcer, published a book he called Memoirs of a Scientology Warrior. In that book, Rathbun described his efforts in the 1980s as part of the "All-Clear Program," which worked to clear away the legal problems keeping Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard from emerging from seclusion.
The problem, as we saw it, was that thirty years later Rathbun still saw himself as the hero of that narrative. His book tried to convince readers that he and others were doing righteous work as they tried to destroy Scientology's enemies.
