Scientology OSA and Operation SNOW WHITE - 2010-02-10
The Operation, designed by L Ron Hubbard, was carried out by Scientologys Office of Special Affairs (OSA). Specifically, it involved a series of infiltrations and thefts from 136 government offices that were known to be critical of Scientology.
In 1979, eleven high ranking members of OSA, including its leader, Mary Sue Hubbard, pleaded guilty to obstructing justice, burglary of government offices and theft of government documents and property. They were sent to prison for 8 months. Hubbard himself, in hiding, was named as an "un-indicted co-conspirator".
