1982 Clearwater Hearings
the FBI raided Scientology's headquarters
in Washington D.C. and Los Angeles, they uncovered
boxes and boxes of damning evidence clearly
showing how the management of Scientology
was breaking the law on a daily basis.
in those documents was "Operation Normandy"
which was the blue-print for the cult's take-over
of the city of Clearwater.
Clearwater City Commission invited attorney
to come before the city to present witnesses
and evidence about the criminal nature of this
was to be given equal time to respond to the charges.
one full week, the citizens of Clearwater watched
the hearings live on the local cable system.
The entire hearing is now on-line.
