When Scientology tried to convince the FBI that a college prof ran a cabal of critics - 2018-01-12
Over the last several months, we've been posting numerous FBI documents about Scientology that have been pried loose by journalist Emma Best as part of a lawsuit. She's been kind enough to give us a crack at many of the items as they've come available, and that's led to some really fun disclosures like a 1985 letter from Nibs that we got to see for the first time recently.
There are so many new documents, some of them we have barely had time to skim, and, as with many government releases, some of it is not super exciting or revelatory. One file the FBI released, for example, was mostly about email threats the Church of Scientology was receiving circa 2006 from a determined and very angry person. It really wasn't very interesting to us.
However, one page in that file we did find pretty remarkable.
