Officials of the Church of Scientology routinely plotted in recent years to leak to newspapers information aimed at embarrassing government agencies and former President Nixon and misleading the public about the church's founder, L. Ron Hubbard, according to internal church documents released here yesterday.

Using such code names as Operation Chaos Leak and Operation Bulldozer Leak, church officials sought to defame and confuse the church's critics or anyone who might be investigating the church and its activities, the documents show.

The thousands of pages released yesterday by the U.S. Court of Appeals are part of the massive collection of evidence that the federal government seized in raids 2 1/2 years ago here and in Los Angeles at church offices.
