DATE CONVENTIONS IN THE TIME LINE

It has been impossible to get exact dates for some of the events
listed herein. If the event seemed important enough to include, yet no
exact day--or, in some cases, no month--was given, the indication "c."
(for circa) has been put AFTER the information (day or month) in
question.
    As an example, an event known to have occurred in June of 1974, but
without certainty as to the actual day, might be listed as "Saturday, 1
c. June 1974." If only a month and year are known (as in the example
just given), and there is no indication of, e.g., "late June," then the
event has usually been assigned arbitrarily to the 1st or the 15th of
the indicated month, unless surrounding events indicate a different,
more likely day of the month. The weekday names (e.g. Monday, Tuesday,
etc.) have been included as additional data.
    If the only indication of the time of the event was "mid-1974,"
then the entry might read "Saturday, 1 c. June c. 1974, indicating that
the month, too, is estimated from the language of the referenced source.
Only rarely have incidents been included where the only information
available is a givien year. When it seemed important enough to include
in the Time Line, it was put, usually, at 1 c. January c. of the given
year, or at 1 c. July c. of the given year, whichever seemed most
likely--mainly as a "bookmark" for the event, pending more exact dating.
Every effort has been made to isolate, as closely as possible, the
exact date for each event. If anyone has any more accurate information
about any event described herein, please post it to the newsgroup,
"alt.religion.scientology."

1977
======================

Friday, 07 January 1977
In a briefing paper, Mitchell Hermann, aka Mike Cooper, informs Henning
Heldt that CSG Mary Sue Hubbard has "approved" a plan identical to "the
one previously laid out by Cindy Raymond on December 10, 1976." [See
database entry for 1 December 1976, and see Outpoints, below.]
Hermann/Cooper outlines for Heldt the following events: the arrest of
Gerald Wolfe; the investigation which is being conducted by the FBI and
the United States Attorney's Office; the cover-up story given by Wolfe;
Principal Assistant United States Attorney Carl S. Rauh's statement that
he does not believe Wolfe's story; the assignment of the investigation
to Assistant United States Attorney Garey Stark of the Fraud section;
the statement by Wolfe's attorney "that the case has been prepared to go
to the grand jury"; and the various attempts which are being made by the
FBI to locate Meisner in D.C. He suggests that research should be
conducted to determine if a "guilty plea would then eliminate the grand
jury." [See Outpoints, below.) He also states that Wolfe has been
directed not to give any further information beyond the cover-up story
prepared for him by the Guardian's Office.
OUTPOINTS: CONTRARY FACTS: Cindy Raymond's "plan" is earlier described
in the Stipulation in a series of events that are identified as having
taken place on 1 December 1976, not 10 December 1976. And Raymond's
"plan" was simply a rehash of the 13-14 June 1976 [see] plan that was
approved on 13 June by Henning Heldt. So if MSH has now "approved a plan
identical to that," then nothing has changed since the 14 June 1976
[see] plan. Perhaps more importantly, the "plan" regarding Wolfe has
ALWAYS BEEN THAT HE WOULD ENTER A GUILTY PLEA! See database entries for
12, 13 and 14 June 1976. The 13 June plan is approved by Henning Heldt,
then is reviewed on 14 June by all the principals in Meisner's motel
room. That is what Gerald Wolfe is drilled on, and takes back to D.C.
with him [see 14 June 1976 entry]. So why, now, is there this musing
about "research" to consider a guilty plea to "eliminate the grand
jury"?! WHY HASN'T WOLFE ENTERED A GUILTY PLEA?

SOURCE: Report "Fifteen DCIs' First 100 Days," prepared January 1993 by
the History Staff in CIA's Center for the Study of Intelligence.

Sunday, 23 January 1977
Mitchell Hermann, aka Mike Cooper, notifies Henning Heldt and Richard
Weigand that Gerald Wolfe has a scheduled meeting with the United States
Attorney's Office in D.C. He suggests that the meeting be used to
present "further cover story to them as a possible means of forstalling
[sic] a possible grand jury." He adds however, that the "furthr [sic]
cover story needs to be elaborated." Thus, he appends to his CSW the
original story with additions that have been prepared to "dovetail" with
it. In handwritten notations throughout the document, Cindy Raymond
opposes some of the changes in the cover-up story proposed by
Hermann/Cooper. In an appended report, Hermann/Cooper outlines the final
proposed cover-up story (which, according to the Stipulation, is the one
that later is given by Wolfe to the United States Attorney's Office, the
FBI, and to "the United States Grand Jury for the District of
Columbia"). Hermann/Cooper includes in his report the names of
restaurants and bars which had earlier been left unnamed in the original
cover story.
OUTPOINTS: SMOKING GUN--ADDED FALSEHOOD, CONTRARY FACTS, ADDED GRAND
JURY CONFUSION: This is ridiculous--"forstalling (sic) a possible grand
jury"! There already IS a Grand Jury, accoding to the Stipulation [see
database entries for 8 October, 13 October, and 15 December 1976], made
possible by Gerald Wolfe having voluntarily waived his protection of a
45-day indictment. Yet here is more Stipulation "proof" that Gerald
Wolfe is working in total cooperation with the GO!

Director U.S., to research whether the United States Attorney's Office

Mitchell Hermann, aka Mike Cooper, reminds the Deputy Guardian for Legal
Affairs in the United States Mary Rezzonico that "it is still planned to
get Silver [Gerald Wolfe] out here for briefing prior to the meeting"
which Wolfe has scheduled with the United States Attorney's Office.
Hermann/Cooper expresses Wolfe's concern that the United States
Attorney's Office will attempt to strike a deal with him to become a
government witness. (NOTE: The date 30 January 1977 is not stated, per
se, but this event is described as "[o]ne week later" than an event that
is dated 23 January 1977.)

Monday, 31 January 1977
FCDC files a suit, The Founding Church of Scientology v. Clarence
Kelley, et al., C.A. No. 77-0175 (D.D.C. January 31, 1977), alleging
that it, as well as the class it seeks to represent, has been the
subject of a government-wide conspiracy to destroy a religion. Plaintiff
claims that its constitutional and statutory rights have been violated
in that the defendants have improperly maintained and disseminated
information regarding the plaintiff; harassed, observed, and infiltrated
the plaintiff organization; "blacklisted" members of the plaintiff; and
subjected the plaintiff to discriminatory tax audits. Defendants include
the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Attorney
General of the United States, the Director of the Central Intelligence
Agency, the Secretary of the Treasury, the Chief of the National Central
Bureau of the International Criminal Police Organization, the Director
of the National Security Agency, the Secretary of the Army, and the
Postmaster General of the Postal Service. The United States is also
named as a defendant.
OUTPOINTS: SMOKING GUN--OMITTED FACTS: How terribly strange that there is
absolutely no mention of this case in the Stipulation of Evidence for
the "GO 11." How terribly strange that this case is filed just five
months before the FBI raid D.C, and L.A., and "discover" all the
documents they need to indict the top leaders in the Guardian's Office.
How terribly strange that there is no information on what became of this
case naming the heads of the CIA and the FBI. How terribly strange.
SOURCE: Mentioned in a ruling on 19 October, 1978, in another case:
FOUNDING CHURCH OF SCIENTOLOGY OF WASHINGTON, D. C., INC., Plaintiff, v.
DIRECTOR, FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION, et al., Defendants. Civ. A.
No. 78-0107. United States District Court, District of Columbia.

Sunday, 20 c. February 1977
(NOTE: This passage from the Stipulation is being stuck arbitrarily here
at this date, because it is a narrative covering a month and a half.) As
quoted from the Stipulation: "During the months of February and March
1977 the cover-up preparation by the Guardian's Office and Information
Bureau slowed considerably due to the failure of the defendant Mitchell
Hermann (a/k/a Mike Cooper) to complete the outstanding aspects of the
cover-up story, and because of the defendant [Gerald] Wolfe's waiver of
the rule requiring an indictment within forty-five days of arrest. The
defendant [Cindy] Raymond and Mr. [Michael] Meisner continued to
elaborate upon various portions of that cover-up story. The defendants
[Gregory] Willardson and Raymond assigned Mr. Meisner the task of
preparing other covert operations and projects. During this period, Mr.
Meisner continued to be audited three times a week."
OUTPOINTS: SMOKING GUN--ADDED INAPPLICABLE WAIVER! This is the first
mention in the Stipulation of any such waiver! Why in the name of all
that's fabricated did Gerald Wolfe WAIVE the rule that would have FORCED
the US Attorney's Office to get an indictment returned on him within
forty-five days of his arrest?!? This means he GAVE THEM all the time
they wanted to come up with the evidence to indict! OMITTED FACTS,
DROPPED-OUT TIME: WHY did he waive this right? WHEN did he waive it?
WHERE is his waiver? (Here is the rule, actually quoted from the
Stipulation: "Rule 4(a)(1) of the Rules of the United States District
Court for the District of Columbia provides that indictments are to be
returned within forty-five days of any arrest which occurred prior to
July 1, 1976.") This is amazing! Wolfe was arrested ONE DAY prior to 1
July 1976, on 30 June 1976 [see]! So he was still covered, and could
have gotten off scott free, because no indictment was returned within 45
days! But he WAIVED this!

Tuesday, 15 c. March 1977
"Towards mid-March," Michael Meisner becomes upset at the lengthy delays
and complains to Cindy Raymond. She informs "her superiors" of Meisner's
dissatisfaction. Richard Weigand notifies Meisner that Mitchell Hermann
aka Mike Cooper has been removed from the Information Bureau, in part
for his failure to properly handle the cover-up, and has been assigned
to the Services Bureau. Hermann/Cooper is replaced as "cover-up
coordinator" by Cindy Raymond. Simultaneously, Brian Andrus is
"appointed to replace the defendant Hermann/Cooper Southeast U.S.
Secretary (sic)."
OUTPOINTS: CONTRARY FACTS: The Stipulation elsewhere says that Hermann
was removed in mid-May1977 [see database entry for 15 May 1977] and
replaced by Brian Andrus. But there it says the post he was removed from
(and replaced by Andrus on) was Deputy Guardian for Information U.S.;
not "Southeast U.S. Secretary."

emphasizing the need for action in regard to Gerald Wolfe's and Michael
Meisner's situation in D.C. She points out that she has recently been
assigned the task of coordinating the cover-up, and says that Mitchell
Hermann, aka Mike Cooper, had been "badly suppressing the lines and
giving no or false information, keeping both Legal and BI in a confusion
as to exactly what to do." She reminds them that CSG Mary Sue Hubard,
and the Guardian's Office WorldWide, has ordered the containment of the
grand jury investigation.

Sunday, 03 c. April 1977
Henning Heldt responds to Michael Meisner's earlier letter [see 29 March
1977 database entry], stating that he is convinced that both Gerald
Wolfe and Meisner should enter guilty pleas in the District of Columbia.
He also tells Meisner that Brian Andrus will keep in constant contact
with him and inform him of all new developments and solicit his views on
all future matters. Heldt also promised Meisner that within six weeks,
Wolfe will enter his guilty plea and pave the way for Meisner's
surrender to Federal authorities in D.C. Brian Andrus and United States
Deputy Guardian for Legal Bureau Mary Rezzonico give Heldt's letter to
Meisner during a meeting at his apartment. Meisner tells Andrus and
Rezzonico that he does not believe it is necessary to enter a guilty
plea. He prefers to return to D.C., surrender to the authorities, and
go to trial, putting the government to its burden as required by law.
Meisner feels that in this manner he can challenge FBI Agent Christine
Hansen's identification of him as one of the two persons she had
confronted in the US Courthouse.

Wednesday, 20 April 1977
Guardian WorldWide Jane Kember criticizes Henning Heldt for his "sloppy
reporting and poor co-ordination" of the Wolfe/Meisner District of
Columbia situation. She formulates the following "strategy," whereby
Gerald Wolfe will request an immediate meeting with the United States
Attorney's Office, admit his guilt stating the cover-up story, waive his
right to a Grand Jury indictment, plead guilty, and will be "sentenced
lightly" as a first offender. Michael Meisner will then surrender and
also enter a guilty plea based on the cover-up story, giving "an
informal story on where he had been for the last 7 months," and also
receive a suspended sentence. If the United States Attorney's Office
insists on continuing with its Grand Jury investigation, then Wolfe will
be directed to "refuse to testify." Kember also demands an explanation
for the long delay in resolving the Wolfe case. "At the same time," CSG
Mary Sue Hubbard directs Heldt to begin creating a Canadian cover to
explain Meisner's fugitive status without connecting him to the Church
of Scientology. Heldt immediately informs Brian Andrus of Mary Sue
Hubbard's order and charges him with the task of putting it into effect.

Brian Andrus speaks to Gerald Wolfe and is informed that it is

OUTPOINTS: ADDED UNBELIEVABLE B/S, OMITTED GO OUTRAGE: In the entire
Stipulation, this is only the SECOND mention of this crucial waiver by
Gerald Wolfe of the 45-day rule! And this is all it says about it! Why
did the GO wait till NOW, EIGHT MONTHS AFTER WOLFE'S ARREST, to make ANY
inquiry about this waiver? Why has NOBODY from the GO written a SINGLE
WORD about this amazing waiver in all the thousands of documents
regarding this situation; why has no one indicated OUTRAGE at Wolfe's
betrayal via this waiver? INCREDIBLE!

In a letter to Henning Heldt summarizing the 28 April meeting with
Michael Meisner, Mary Rezzonico states her conclusion, based upon
additional conversations with Cindy Raymond and Richard Weigand, that
there are "reasons for concern about Meisner's situation." She also
states that she has been notified by the Assistant Guardian for the
Legal bureau in D.C., Kendrick "Rick" Moxon, that Gerald Wolfe's
attorney has reported that the United States Attorney's Office has
"'made noises' about the Grand Jury.'"

Henning Heldt informs Mary Sue Hubbard that "Herb [Meisner] is
threatening to return to D.C. and handle the scene as he sees fit if the
waiver is not withdrawn this week." He tells her that he is ordering
the Information Bureau to "arrange to restrain Herb and prevent him from
leaving, and to guard him so that he does not do so."
OUTPOINTS: OMITTED DATA: Well, this is it, kids--the THIRD and FINAL
mention of Gerald Wolfe's pivotal WAIVER of a 45-day indictment. And
this is all that is said about it. Piecing together the THREE vague
references to this waiver, though, and computing the dates it affected,
it is irrefutable that this IS what made the government's entire case
possible. Wolfe had to have HANDED it to them, voluntarily. MUSINGS: Why
did Wolfe's arrest not come until 19 days after the FBI had his
real-name I.D.? Why did he just return to work at IRS, and sit there for
over two weeks waiting to be arrested? Why did his arrest come on 30
August, just ONE DAY before the day (1 July 1976) that would have
removed his 45-day protection? Was the government waiting for that
pivotal day, and somehow got their wires crossed, goofed, and arrested
him one day early--which later resulted in him having to proffer the
waiver?

be set up within ten days even if it requires trips to Canada, and that
the Legal Bureau should assume much closer supervision and control over
Gerald Wolfe and direct him to conclude his case in D.C. promptly.

Friday, 29 April 1977
Brian Andrus meets with Michael Meisner at Meisner's South Serrano
Street apartment and informs him that from that day on he will be placed
under guard. Meisner tells Andrus that he will not accept the presence
of guards. Meisner also makes it clear that if he is charged as a
fugitive he will not enter a guilty plea. He complains that his whole
situation had been mishandled by the Guardian's Office and has resulted
in his becoming a fugitive. He demands that Henning Heldt explain to him
what action is being taken regarding his case. At the end of the
meeting, Andrus places "the guards" outside Meisner's apartment. That
same day, Heldt reports to Mary Sue Hubbard that Meisner is now under
guard, and that Meisner has "'reacted violently to the arrival of
persons to insure he did not blow." He adds that he has directed the
nformation Bureau to locate "a more isolated" apartment where Meisner
can be kept under the watch of "some trustworthy...Body Guards." He
also statea that he is sending Richard Weigand and Gregory Willardson
to see Meisner, and "get control" over him.
OUTPOINTS: OMITTED GUARDS: Does anybody but the military and the
government think of people as nameless, faceless "guards?" Who are these
people. They could be quite important in corroborating any of this. Why
did they blindly accept orders to be party to a kidnapping--potentially a
capital offense?

Pursuant to Henning Heldt's directive, Richard Weigand and Gregory
Willardson together with "Southeast U.S. Secretary" Brian Andrus and
"three guards," visit Michael Meisner at approximately 2:15 a.m. Weigand
warns Meisner that he will no longer be permitted to make "demands and
threats on the Church," and "that he [i]s to start becoming a decent,
cooperative, contributing part of the venture and nothing else [i]s to
be tolerated." With the guards' assistance, Willardson searches
Meisner's apartment and personal property and removes any evidence
connecting Meisner to the Church of Scientology. At approximately 6:30
a.m., the meeting concludes "with the guards in charge."

Brian Andrus allegedly gives Michael Meisner a handwritten dispatch from

the guards will be eventually removed.

At approximately 6 p.m., Brian Andrus, Peeter Alvet, Information Bureau
official Chuck Reese and "two bodyguards" visit Michael Meisner and
tell him that he is to be moved to another apartment. Meisner refuses
to leave, threatening to cause a commotion if forced to do so. The two
guards handcuff him behind his back, gag him, and drag him out of the
building. They force him onto the back floor of a waiting car. One of
the guards holds Meisner down with his feet. Meisner is taken to an
apartment at 3219 Descanso Drive in L.A. After Andrus and Alvet leave,
"three guards" remain in the apartment with Meisner.
OUTPOINTS: INCORRECTLY INCLUDED HAPPY KIDNAPPING NAMELESS GUARDS WHO

On Friday the 13th, Gerald Wolfe enters a plea of guilty to a one-count
information charging him with the wrongful use of a Government seal, in
violation of 18 U.S. Code, Section 1017, before United States District
Judge Thomas A. Flannery in Washington, D.C. Wolfe's plea specifically
involves the 11 June 1976 [see] entrance into the United States
Courthouse in that city and his use of the IRS identification card
bearing the name "Thomas Blake."
OUTPOINTS: ADDED TIME: Eleven months after the GO "cover-up" plan was
drawn up, approved, and agreed to by all [see 12, 13, and 14 June 1976
database entries], Wolfe FINALLY enters his guilty plea. But, gee, it's

his protection under the 45-day rule [see database entry for 3 September

by jumping into a taxicab. He goes to the Greyhound Bus Station and
takes a bus to Las Vegas. Meisner dioes not have much money, but "having
been there [to Las Vegas] previously, he knew a motel he could afford."
He has escaped from his guard because he wants "time to think about his
predicament and to determine an appropriate course of action." The

Scientology, and does not want to leave the organization precipitously.

Douglass speaks to Meisner. Meisner refuses to say where he is staying
in Las Vegas until he first speaks to Henning Heldt. Therefore, a
telephone call is scheduled for 8:30 that evening. Heldt pleads with
Meisner to return to L.A. While Meisner initially refuses, he agrees to
meet with Douglass the next day in Las Vegas. Cindy Raymond immediately
notifies her new superior, Temporary Deputy Guardian for Information US
(T/DG I US) Brian Andrus, of Meisner's telephone call to her and of
Heldt's telephone discussion with Meisner that evening. She concludes
that "'[t]he only thing I can think of is that we work a cover story
that he is trying to blackmail the Church for money by pretending that
the Church harbored him for the last months making the Church a party to
the crime.'"

The Guardian's Office has learns (?) where Michael Meisner has been

official Chuck Reese, who insists that Meisner return with him to L.A.
Reese tells Meisner that Richard Weigand has been removed from the post

temporarily replaced by Brian Andrus, who had been Meisner's case
officer.
    Miesner speaks to Henning Heldt, who promises to meet with Meisner
that evening if he returns to L.A. Meisner, still troubled and confused,
agrees, nonetheless, to return. That night, Meisner and Heldt meet at
Canter's Restaurant in L.A. Heldt assures Meisner that he understands
Meisner's feelings. He tells him that both L. Ron Hubbard and Mary Sue
Hubbard are working on his case and will do everything to help him. He
explains that while Meisner will have to continue to be guarded, he
should consider his guards his friends and not his enemies. Meisner
agrees to remain with the Guardian's Office. He is driven to his
Descanso Drive apartment by Heldt and Reese. When he arrives, Meisner is

Immediately following his sentencing by Judge Flannery, Wolfe is served
with a subpoena to appear that same afternoon before the United States
Grand Jury for the District of Columbia which has been investigating
entries into the United States Courthouse. At approximately 1 p.m.,
Wolfe appears before the October 1976 Grand Jury. He is represented by
attorney David Schmidt, Esq.
    Wolfe is sworn by Grand Jury Foreperson Mildred Chaplin. The record
is transcribed by an official Grand Jury reporter, Ms. Judith
Bracegirdle Warner. The Grand Jury is investigating to determine whether
violations of statutes of the United States and the District of Columbia
have been committed. It is attempting to identify the individuals who
had committed, caused the commision of, and conspired to commit such
violations. lt is material to its investigation for it to determine the
reasons for the presence of Wolfe and one "John M. Foster" in the US
Courthouse on May 21, 28 and June 11, 1976.
    The Grand Jury is seeking the reasons for Wolfe's use on May 28 of
an identification card bearing the last name "Haake," and his use on
June 11, 1976, of counterfeit IRS credentials bearing the name of
"Thomas J. Blake." It is also material for the Grand Jury to determine
whether, while in the Courthouse, Wolfe and the individual using the
name "Foster" had entered the office of any Assistant United States
Attorney for the District of Columbia, and, if so, whether they had
unlawfully taken any documents or files located therein. Moreover, the
Grand Jury wants to learn whether Wolfe and "Mr. Foster" had photocopied
any documents which were the property of the Office of United States
Attorney for the District of Columbia, and the United States of America,
on photocopying machines within that office.
    The Grand Jury seeks to learn from Wolfe the true identity of the
individual who had entered the Courthouse with him and used the name
"John M. Foster." It also is inquiring into the manner in which Wolfe
and "Mr. Foster" had obtained the counterfeit and forged IRS credentials
which they had used to enter the Courthouse. Finally, the Grand Jury is
attempting to determine whether any other individual in the District of
Columbia or elsewhere had conspired with, aided and abetted, or caused
the defendant Wolfe to obtain his counterfeit IRS credentials, or
assisted him in entering the United States Courthouse. During his
testimony under oath before the federal Grand Jury, Wolfe "knowingly
made...false declarations regarding the above-mentioned material
matters."

In Moscow, Los Angels Times correspondent Robert C. Toth is arrested and
detained on a charge of illegally obtaining papers that disclos "state
secrets." The papers have been given to Toth by a Soviet scientist,
Valery G. Petukhov. Petukhov's theories assert that certain particles of
living cells "are emitted" when such cells divide, that they can be
"detected and measured and that these radiating particles can carry
information," and that their function could "explain the basis for
telepathy" and related phenomena. He has told Toth that his experiments
have succeeded, and they have met at a pre-arranged a rendevouz. Toth is
given a manuscript that contains over twenty typewritten sheets,
complete with charts and photos of charts. It looks like a complex,
comprehensive scientific paper, well-documented, appropriately
technical. But Toth never manages to get a real look at the papers
because five plainclothesmen pull up in a Fiat and pul Toth inside.
After he is taken in for interrogation, he is released into the custody
of Vice Consu Lawrence C. Napper, of the U.S. Embasy.

in L.A., and excerpted by legal Bureau official Paul Klopper in a
memorandum to his superior, Deputy Guardian for the Legal Bureau Mary
Rezzonico. The memorandum, entitled "Silver Hearing and Grand Jury"
summarizes the sentencing proceedings before Judge Flannery and the 10
June 1977 [see] testimony of Wolfe before the "October 1976 Grand Jury."
According to the routing on the letter, copies of it and the debrief are
sent to CSG Mary Sue Hubbard, the DG US Henning Heldt, the DGI US Brian
Andrus and the Guardian WorldWide Jane Kember.
OUTPOINTS: CONTRARY FACTS, DROPPED-OUT TIME: Although the date is given
as 12 June 1977, the Stipulation also says this occurred "the next day"
after Wolfe's debrief, which the Stipulaton asserts took place
"immediately after" his Grand Jury appearance, which was on 10 June 1977

Pursuant to the order of Henning Heldt, Mary Rezzonico and Brian Andrus
give Michael Meisner a copy of Gerald Wolfe's debrief to read so that he
can "start adjusting his cover-up story to that given by the defendant
Wolfe in the Grand Jury." Meisner reads the Wolfe's Grand Jury debrief
at his appartment on South Verdugo. (In his directive to Rozzonico and
Andrus, Heldt also orders them to research any possible fugitive charge
against Meisner and to increase security.)

Henning Heldt and Brian Andrus visit Michael Meisner in order to show
him a handwritten letter from Mary Sue Hubbard. Heldt reads the letter
to Meisner (?) in which Mary Sue Hubbard allegedly warns Meisner that if
he escapes from his guards again he will be on his own.
OUTPOINTS: ADDED INAPPLICABLE LETTER, ADDED INAPPLICABLE HELDT, CONTRARY
FACTS: There is NO reason for such a letter coming from Mary Sue
Hubbard. It is unnecessarily inflammatory. There is NO reason for
Henning Heldt to personally go READ IT TO Meisner. That is unnecessarily
inflammatory. And just three days later, according to the Stipulation,
Brian Andrus "informs" Mary Rezzonico that Meisner has expressed "mild
pleasure" over recent events, specifically Wolfe's sentencing and Grand
Jury testimony debrief [see database entry for 16 June 1977]. So where
and why do these Heavy Hussar tactics fit in to that picture? It's as
though this HAS to be stuck in here to help set up and justify Meisner's
leaving--which comes exactly one week later [see database entry for 20

to the Federal authorities, plead guilty, and cooperate in the ongoing
investigation. Thus, he feigns cooperation with his captors and his
superiors in the Guardian's Office in the hope that eventually his
guards might be removed. As a reward for this cooperation, Meisner's

that anyone was concerned or really looking out for his own wellfare."
Andrus had assured him that he would keep him informed of all new
developments and would see him again soon.

it says that Andrus is REPORTING to Rezzonico about how Meisner received

At 6 a.m. Michael Meisner, taking a few clothes with him, leaves his
apartment on South Verdugo in Glendale, California, for the purpose of
surrendering to Federal Authorities. In order to elude any potential
follower, Meisner takes two buses to a bowling alley, from which he
places a collect call to Assistant United States Attorney Garey Stark in
Washington D.C. Meisner identifies himself to the operator as "Gerald
Wolfe" because he fears that the Guardian's Office might have placed a
covert operative in the United States Attorney's Office. When Stark
answers the telephone, Meisner identifies by his real name, informs
Stark that he is ready to surrender, plead guilty for his participation
in the criminal activities of the Guardian's Office, and cooperate with
the United States. Stark directs Meisner to stay at the bowling alley
and wait for Federal Bureau of Investigation agents. Approximately two
hours later, three agents of the FBI meet Meisner at the bowling alley.
Meisner surrenders to the agents and is taken by them to Los Angeles

night in a motel.

Monday, 20 June 1977
Gregory Willardson informs Henning Heldt (in a letter) that "Herbert
[Michael Meisner] was found missing today." He says that Brian Andrus
has found a note in Meisner's apartment stating that Meisner will call
in a week, that he is not going anywhere where he can be located, and
that there is no purpose in discussing his motivations. Willardson
informs Heldt that Meisner had last been seen by his guard on Sunday,
June 18 at 6:00 p.m. (!See Outpoints, below) He speculates that Meisner
is hiding somewhere in L.A., probably doing legal research in a library
regarding his possible legal defenses in the D.C. case. He adds that a
Guardian's Office official (unnamed) has been to Meisner's apartment to
remove any documents connecting Meisner to Scientology, and to wipe out
all possible fingerprints. A copy of the letter is sent to Mary Sue
Hubbard, Cindy Raymond ("BI DC Scene Co-Ord (Natl Sec)") and Mary
Rezzonico (as "BI DC Scene Co-Ord (DG L)")
OUTPOINTS: CONTRARY FACTS: June 18 is Saturday, not Sunday, as stated.

Mary Rezzonico notifies Mary Sue Hubbard that Michael Meisner has
escaped. Rezzonico speculates that Meisner had become concerned about
additional fugitive from justice charges. She says that Gregory
Willardson has agreed to have all those individuls in D.C. who might be
affected by Meisner's appearance briefed on what to do if Meisner
should return there. She also says that Henning Heldt ("DG US") has
"suggested the possibility of creating some confusion with some phone
calls and a false arrest set-up -- leading the government to believe
that Patsy [Mr. Meisner's wife] would be meeting her ex-husband at soae
clandestined [sic] meeting -- then have her and Greg Taylor [another
Guardian's Office Official who resembled Mr. Meisner] meet." Thus, the
FBI would, presumably, arrest the wrong person.

In a letter, Gregory Willardson orders Cindy Raymond and Brian Andrus to
"[c]ontinue to fully work out Herb's [Michael Meisner's] cover story per
the program eventualities so that we are prepared." He also directs that
Meisner's wife [Patsy] be ordered not to follow her husband's
instructions should he contact her. Furthermore, Guardian's Office
personnel are to continue checking all libraries in L.A. on the
assumption that Meisner is doing research. Willardson orders the removal
of all incriminating documents from the Guardians Office and their
placement in the "Red Box."
OUTPOINTS: ADDED INAPPLICABLE SELF-INCRIMINATING CRAP: The Stipulation
of Evidence, I swear, tries to have us all believe the following, which
has no equal in all written history for rank stupidity: "Government
Exhibit No. 219 is the directive regarding 'Red Box.' It orders that
'[a]ll the Red Box material from you (sic) areas must be centrally
located, together in a movable container (ideally a briefcase), locked,
and marked.' Appended to that document is the 'Red Box Data Information
Sheet' which defines 'what is a Red Box?' Under that definition, 'Red
Box' includes: a) Proof that a Scnist is involved in criminal
activities. b) Anything illegal that implicates MSH, LRH. c) Large
amount of non-FOI docs. d) Operations against any government group or
persons. e) All operations that contain illegal activities. f)
Evidence of incriminating activities. g) Names and details of
confidential financial accts." I feel that no further comment can
possibly embelish this creative writing assignment.

Tuesday, 21 June 1977
Michael Meisner is taken to the office of Assistant United States
Attorney Garey G. Stark. At the insistence of the Assistant United
States Attorney assigned to the investigation, Meisner confers with an
attorney appointed to him by United States Magistrate Henry H. Kennedy,
Jr. After conferring with his court-appointed attorney, Meisner agrees
to enter a plea of guilty to a five-year conspiracy felony pursuant to
18 U.S. Code, Section 371, without any other condition except that he
will fully cooperate with the Grand Jury investigation. Meisner is
warned that any false testemony he makes will be prosecuted as perjury.
Meisner requests and is granted protective custody by the United States
Marshall Service. He has been in the Marshal Service's protective
custody since June 2l, 1977.

ack[nowledge] him and contact me."

Tuesday, 21 June 1977
In a letter, Mary Sue Hubbard explains to Mary Rezzonico that she
believes Michael Meisner's escape has resulted from a refusal on his
part to recognize the need to plead guilty on the fugitive from justice
charge. She feels that that charge, with it's five years and/or $5,000
fine was too heavy for Meisner to bear. She speculates that Meisner has
probably gone somewhere where he can do legal research to prepare his
case. However, she concludes that she does not think that he will remain
in the L.A. area, but that he is more likely to go to San Francisco, or
possibly Berkeley. Following her receipt of Mary Sue Hubbard's letter,
Rezzonico notifies DG I US Gregory Willardson, and B-1 CO-ORD US Cindy
Raymond as well as NAT'L CASE OFF (SEUS SEC) Brian Andrus of Mary Sue
Hubbard's "directive." (?)
OUTPOINTS: ADDED INAPPLICABLE SPECULATION: There is absolutely NOTHING
on which Mary Sue Hubbard can, should, or would base such idle guesswork
as that presented here about San Francisco and Berkeley. There is
NOTHING in Meisner's background that would link him to that part of the
country. (If he's looking for law libraries, how about D.C., which he is
FAMILIAR with? And note well that D.C. is exactly where he is on this
date, in the offices of US Attorney Garey Stark [ooo, which just happens
to be right next to the D.C. Bar Assoc. legal library, where Meisner was
confronted by the FBI in the first place!]. Meisner is busy copping his
plea and feathering his bed. Mary Sue's speculation is one of the
strangest comments in the entire Stipulation. San Franciso? Why San
Francisco? But it gets stranger... See other database entry for this
date, then for 29 June and 3 July 1977. Yes, much, much stranger...

Tuesday, 21 June 1977
Mary Sue Hubbard instructs Gregory Willardson not to "waste time or
resources" searching for Michael Meisner in the Los Angeles area. She
says that she believes that he is more likely to be in a city or
community such as San Francisco or Berkeley where there are good
libraries available. She further informs Willardson that she has already
instructed Mary Rezzonico to prepare a program to handle the present
situation. Willardson notifies Rezzonico in her capacity as "DC Scene
Co-Ord[inator]" that Mary Sue Hubbard has ordered that the Information
Bureau "not waste resources" looking for Meisner, since he might be
anywhere. Willardson also notifies Mo Budlong by telex that Meisner has
"blown again" and that "no real avenues are open to locate [him]." He
tells him that Meisner's apartment was "cleaned out and wiped down," and
that "all his GO associates are to be briefed." He states that a "[P]lan
is in the works to remove sensitve GO data shud [sic] It become
necessary in future".
OUTPOINTS: ADDED INAPPLICABLE SPECULATION: This is the SECOND time on
the SAME DAY that Mary Sue Hubbard allegedly speculates (in a different
letter, yet), out of thin air, that Meisner is in the San Francisco
area. There is absolutely NOTHING on which Mary Sue Hubbard can, should,
or would base such airy-fairy guesswork. There is NOTHING in Meisner's
background that would suggest that he would go to that part of the
country. Meisner, on this date, is ACTUALLY cozying up to the feds in
D.C. This statement by Mary Sue comes out of the blue, and is one of the
strangest things in the Stipulation. Oh, but the strangest part, the
uncanniest part, the creeping flesh part is yet to come. Stay tuned,
fans of the occult; don't touch that dial. See database entry for 29
June and 3 July 1977. Yes, stranger...

Raymond and Brian Andrus to "'iron out some bugs on Herb's [Michael
Meisner's] story.'" He indicates that he has directed Andrus and Raymond
to continue to work over the next few days on the "basic story." He
expresses concern that Meisner has not called the Guardian's Office
since his excape on 20 June, and that the situation "'could potentially
leave us open to crossing up stories or facts to both Herb's and our
defendant (sic--see Outpoints, below)." He concludes, however, that he is
convinced that Meisner has not surrendered to the authorities and is
still with the Guardian's Office.

talking about Wolfe? What a strange way to differentiate between Meisner
and whoever the mysterious "our defendant" is.

Wednesday, 29 June 1977
Gregory Willardson notifies Henning Heldt that he has "just got word
from Herb [Michael Meisner]." Willardson has just been informed that
Brian Andrus has received a letter from Meisner postmarked (no date
given) San Francisco. The letter, which, in the language of the
Stipulation, "had been sent by Mr. Meisner after his surrender to the
federal authorities and after the United States Attorney's Office for
the District of Columbia had decided to obtain a search warrant for
Guardian's Office premises," states: "Brian - I know you don't
understand what's going on, but I still need time to myself. I'm making
enough to by on (sic) so there's no problems. I'll be in touch in a
couple of weeks. Herb."
Willardson concludes that "as CSG [Mary Sue Hubbard] predicted"
Meisner has been doing legal research in the San Francisco area. He
suggests that the Guardian's Office send a "missioniare" to "scout the
legal libraries and perhaps law schools to locate him [Meisner]." A copy
of this letter is sent to CSG Mary Sue Hubbard, National Secretary Cindy
Raymond, and Southeast Secretary Brian Andrus.
OUTPOINTS: ADDED INCREDIBLE COINCIDENCE: Lo! And Behold! Mary Sue
Hubbard's 21 June 1977 [see] DOUBLE PREDICTION MAGICALLY COMES TRUE! On
that date, she had looked into her InKreDiBle KriStAl bALL[tm] (kept, no
doubt, in her "Red Box,") and through the swirling haze therein, saw
that Meisner was likely in the San Francisco area--without benefit of a
single logical fact to base such a wild guess on. (Of course, THEN, he
WASN'T in the San Francisco area: he was in Washington D.C. cozying up
to the feds and turning State's evidence.) But now, in an AMAZING
coincidence, the feds somehow accomodatingly MOVE HIM TO SAN FRANCISCO
SO HE CAN SEND A LETTER POSTMARKED FROM THERE, PROVING MARY SUE
HUBBARD'S UNCANNY POWERS OF PREDICTION! Are you buying this, dear
reader? Are you bending over and taking it quietly, a grim smile on your
face? It was good for Garey Stark; is it good for you, too?

Willardson of Mary Sue Hubbard's directive not to look for Meisner. He
instructs Willardson to "producc a plan or plans in report form early
this week" to carry out Mary Sue Hubbard's directive.

tactics, according to an affidavit by a former official of the
4-million-member Church of Scientology. Last Friday morning, F.B.I.
agents raided church offices in Washington and Los Angeles to try to
recover hundreds of documents allegedly stolen by scientologist spies
from Government files.
    "Most of the branches and subsidiaries of the organization now enjoy
tax exemption, but the Internal Revenue Service contested that status
for years. In 1974, according to the church official, scientology
strategists called for an all-out counterattack on the tax agency, and
planted an operative in a job there and another in the Justice
Department. Since then, the spies have allegedly copied Internal Revenue
documents, Justice Department files and even bugged an Internal Revenue
Service conference room, apparently to gain an advantage in their legal
dispute with the government."

Tuesday, 01 c. November c. 1977
A Senate subcommittee on Health and Scientific Research, chaired by
Senator Ted Kennedy, focusses on the CIA's testing of LSD on unwitting
citizens. Only a mere handful of people within the CIA reportedly knew
about the scope and details of the program. Testifying before the
subcommittee is CIA's Dr. Sidney Gottlieb. The subcommittee learns
about the CIA Operation MKULTRA through the testimony of Gottlieb. The
purpose of the program, according to his testimony, was to "investigate
whether and how it was possible to modify an individual's behavior by
covert means." Claiming the protection of the National Security Act,
Gottlieb is unwilling to tell the Senate subcommittee what has been
learned or gained by these experiments. He does state, however, that the
program was initially engendered by a concern that the Soviets and
other enemies of the United States would get ahead of the U.S. in this
field.
OUTPOINTS, SMOKING GUN OMITTED DATA: Gottlieb was the head of the CIA's
operation that started the remote viewing program with Hal Puthoff, Ingo
Swann, and Pat Price--all Scientology OTs. He hides behind "national
security" while helping to direct all attention to the inflammatory
"revelations' being made about MKULTRA. In all the Kennedy committee
"investigations," absolutely NO mention is made about the extensive
remote viewing efforts being undertaken at the very moment of Gottlieb's
testimony. That it is still an active and heavily pursued program is
later proved by the enormous sums of money put into it under the changed
names of "GRILL FLAME," etc. Meanwhile, Scientology is being
methodically dismantled down the street.

Former CIA Director Richard Helms appears in federal court in

before a Congressional Committee. Judge Barrington D. Parker read him a
stern lecture:
    "You considered yourself bound to protect the Agency whose affairs
you had administered and to dishonor your solemn oath to tell the truth
...[unreadable] public officials embark deliberately on a course to
disobey and ignore the laws of our land because of some misguided and
ill-conceived notion and belief that there are earlier commitments and
considerations which they must observe, the future of our country is in
jeopardy.
    "There are those employed in the intelligence security community of
this country...who feel that they have a license to operate freely
outside the dictates of the law and otherwise to orchestrate as they see
fit. Public officials at every level, whatever their position, like any
other person, must respect and honor the Constitution and the laws of
the United States.
    "You now stand before this court in disgrace and shame," he says.
    And then he imposes his sentence: a $2000 fine--the maximum--and two
years in jail, to be suspended.

Approximate date when Gerald Armstrong is released from the RPF in
Clearwater. Regarding this event, he says: "Shortly after 'graduating' I
was transferred to the Commodore's Messenger Organization unit in Los
Angeles. There I was ordered to retrieve Tonja [Burden] from her
parent's home in Las Vegas after she escaped from the RPF in
Clearwater... ."

Wednesday, 14 December 1977
Quoted from Gerald Armstrong in the referenced source:
    "On Decemher 14, 1977, my wife and I went to get Tonja back.
    "She was shocked that we had tracked her down so quickly and she
was terrified by us. Terri had been her senior for some years in the
CMO, and I bad been her senior in the RPF, and we both intimidated her.
    "She said over and over that she did not want to go back. Tears
welled up in her eyes. But Terri and I would not be swayed from our
purpose. We talked to her mother and father, and intimidated them with
veiled threats of what might happen, how it would be better for all if
Tonja came back. We also insisted that Tonja coming back and "routing
out properly" was the most ethical thing to do.
    "The truth was that our purpose was to get Tonja back, have her sec
checked and get her to sign waivers, releases and promissory notes, so
she would be rendered harmless to Hubbard and the organization. Tonja
was, in fact, considered a significant threat because she had worked so
closely with Hubbard and potentially knew a great deal about his control
of the organization and G.O. intelligence operations.
    "After several honrs, and still against her will, Tonja succumbed
to our tactics, and we drove with her to Los Angeles. There we turned
her over to the Los Angeles RPF where she would be sec checked and made
to sign the required documents.
    "What I did to Tonja, coercing her back to Los Angeles to subject
her to sec checks and forcing her to sign documents and signing myself a
false statement against her, was cruel and shameful and only shows the
desensitization I had gone through."

There is ostensibly a letter dated Dec. 23, 1977, about Hubbard's health
