3.2 A Look at at Some of Scientology's Practices

Return to the Index

What was Operation Freakout? This is an actual Scientology document that sets up a plan to freak out the author of a book that was critical of Scientology. This plan was actually carried out. This is taken from a post by wbarwell@Starbase.NeoSoft.COM (William Barwell):

Operation Freakout, a plan to incarcerate (in jail or a mental institution) "PC" or "Mrs. Lovely" their frequent code name for Paulette Cooper. These pages consist of sample bomb threats by phone and mail which are supposed to trace back to her, plus a bizarre scheme to have a Scientologist pose as Cooper and crack up at a store near where she lived so that she would be committed.

In 1973, another frame-up scheme with bomb threats lead to the arrest and indictment of Cooper. The lower part of this page consists of a letter attached to Operation Freakout in which they state that they think this frame-up will work because it worked before and the FBI believes she sent those original bomb threats.

Attached Letter:



Dear Dick,

SITUATION: Cooper is still not terminately handled.

DATA: Cooper is getting her power back, attacking again.

Attached is approved Op Freakout. This additional channel (i.e. plan). Should really have her put away. Worked with all the other Channels.

The FBI already think she really did do the bomb threats on the C of S (Church of Scientology).

SOLUTION: OK this additional Channel.

This is OK______
