Jon Atack is the author of A Piece of Blue Sky, one of the very best books on L. Ron Hubbard and Scientology. He now has a new edition of the book out, and on Saturdays he's helping us sift through the legends, myths, and contested facts about Scientology that tend to get hashed and rehashed in books, articles, and especially on the Internet.

Jon, we have to admit that we're pretty skeptical about Scientology's "R2-45" policy, which was mentioned on this blog earlier this week. Supposedly, L. Ron Hubbard instructed his followers that to use the R2-45 method was to eliminate church enemies with the use of a Colt semi-automatic pistol (with .45 caliber ammunition). What's the evidence that LRH ever really invented a policy of murder?

JON: "R2-45" did become a code in the cult. Outside of the Guardian's Office (the church's original intelligence unit, 1966-1981), no one took it seriously — at least for a moment.
