NOTE: I am posting this to bring some truth to anyone who is interested. My intention is not to hurt others, which has been implied to me by some still in Scientology. What I have to say may hurt someone, but that is for them to work out. I cannot keep hiding to protect the lies and deeds that are done. I am through with that. You are through with me, as wittnessed by OSA trying to get me nailed with some phony, drummed up criminal charges, which the court agreed were not criminal actions. You want truth? Here is the beginning.
Many people have asked me to explain how OSA really works. Let me start by saying there are many views of OSA, and how it works. I am going to explain how it worked for me, a public, as a volunteer. There are layers of things that can be said about OSA. This is sort of an OSA 101.
First off, OSA stands for The Office of Special Affairs. It is the arm in Scientology that deals with legal issues, including the expulsion of their members when they decide the time is right.
Many people, who are critics and have studied Scientology, have heard of the GO, which stood for the Guardian’s Office. The GO was run by Mary Sue Hubbard, and ended with a raid where documents were found that actually mapped out many of their illegal operations. 9 people actually went to prison over this, including Hubbard’s wife.
I was in Scientology the day the raid occurred. Someone called me from what was then known as “The Manor” and said “Tory, the FBI is here, and we need someone to marry us. Can we come over and get married?” I said sure, and they did. How the “church” got through that is still amazing to me, but that is how Scientology is. They just start pumping out the black PR, in mass, and the propaganda they want heard.
We were quickly told that Scientology knew nothing (NOTHING) of what these people had done. All we had to do was look at LRH’s actual references, where they all are against stealing, lying, etc. So see? The bad deeds they did couldn’t be based on matter that is was L. Ron Hubbard’s wife, and Hubbard was sending down the orders).
Ok,,,, so that was the GO. Soon after something showed up called OSA. OSA was supposedly totally legal, and only did things per LRH. … so none of those “bad things that those GO people did would ever happen again”.
That mind think is completely ingrained in scientologists, to the point where they really (REALLY) believe OSA are the good guys.
OSA fights for “religious freedom”. Never mind that Hubbard himself was totally anti-Christ and really anti-God, they push religion hard and fast. Somewhere they realized religion was their ticket to ride. In the 70′s they had not yet moved into this big religious avenue. Dianetics was promoted as an “Applied Philosophy”. It was a Science of the Mind. But once the FBI busted the GO (Guardian’s office), things changed overnight. Literally the GO was out, and OSA was in. They are promoted as the ultimate in white hats.
Actually most of the public of Scientology is hardly aware of what goes on in OSA. They are told OSA is there to fight these bad people, to handle legal, and is there for PR. The truth is, so far every single person they have promoted to me as horrible, has turned out to be not only not horrible, they are really good and decent people, many quite wonderful. They lied through their teeth to me about these people, and it wasn’t until I left that I found out the shocking truth: These “bad people” were actually the good people, and OSA was out doing bad things.
Is all of what OSA does bad? No of course not. But much of what OSA does has become bad. They send PI’s (Private investigators) after people, the sue people (they tried to rope me with criminal charges and they really worked hard to bring that about. It didn’t work, but it was amazing to me to see how far they will go). They harass people who speak out against Scientology, and their families and sometimes at their work force. I didn’t know about these things, but as Bob Minton pointed out to me, that is no excuse. Some critics have been pretty hostile with me for “being so bad and helping OSA”. I am not going to say I was right, but I also know I was being a ‘good Scientologist’. That is what was asked of me. I know there are a number of “good Scientologists” who are still actively volunteering for OSA. All I can say is look at what you are doing. Is that what you would want someone to do to you?
In 1979 I started as an OSA Volunteer in Clearwater, Florida. We had moved there, and a bit earlier so had Hubbard and the Sea Org. By the time we arrived there were people out on the streets with signs saying “Save Sparkling Clearwater: Stamp Out Scientology”. I was asked to go meet with one of the executives, Milt Wolfe. Milte explained to me that Hubbard was planning to land in the south, and set up his land base. However (so the story was told to me) someone got word that the FBI were going to nail Hubbard, plant drugs on his boat, and put him in jail for a long time.
Now you might be wondering why would the FBI be after this Sci Fi/pretend religious cult leader? Why? Well, Scientology always has answers to these kind of questions. Why? Simple. See the AMA (American Medical Association) has been after Hubbard ever since Dianetics came out in 1950. I was told the AMA were these bad, greedy doctors who wanted to put Hubbard out of business, because Dianetics could put out of business. Now since my Grandfather was a wonderful doctor, and doctors had saved my life, this never really rang totally true to me, but I bought some part of it.
So the AMA had informed the FBI, and thus they were here after years of chasing, to bust LRH. Knowing this, and being a sly fox, Hubbard picked up and zoomed to Clearwater. Since he was pretty sure they wouldn’t want Scientology there, but he had to at this point go somewhere on land,,,, he started a church with a different name. Basically he lied.
So Milt explained “because we had to lie to get the Fort Harrison, and this guy Richard Tenny who is running for City Commissioner’s whole platform is about how we are liars…we cannot handle it. We need you to handle it for us.”
Being a new mom, and always up for a good fight, I began. I would walk around talking to people on the street, trying to tell them what they were doing was not OK. I went to all of Tenny’s meetings and would ask him questions to get the attention off of Scientology. “What about the fact that there is only one fire dept? What are your plans for that? What about the drug scene…” etc etc. Truly I would ask anything that would steer that attention off of Scientology. Now please note here that this is what Scientology/OSA does. They come pretending like they care… but what is the truth? I could have cared less. I was there with a plan to distract, and that is all.
It is justified because these people are what are known in Scientology as SP’s or Suppressive Person’s. An SP is one who is just there to harm others, and Hubbard wrote a Policy called Fair Game stating once someone is declared an SP, they become Fair Game, and Scientologists can lie, cheat, harm or whatever to this person. Even Scientology promotes Fair Game has long since been cancelled. I would have given you $5,000 last year at this time that there is no Fair Game. But the truth is, Fair Game is alive and just as bad as ever. I was even doing it, and didn’t realize it.
Long story short, Richard Tenny was voted out of office in a landslide and we all celebrated. Clearwater was our town.
I continued to help OSA from that point until I left last July.
In 1985 there were a few huge trials against Scientology, and I was at each Crusade. I donated one year of my time to fight in these battles and help however I was needed. Again, I thought I was doing good. I knew Larry Wollersheim personally and felt he was a conn man. So I was very persistent in this fight. Let’s look at how:
I arrived at the courthouse to find numbers of OT 7′s lined up outside the courtroom. I was told only OT 7′s could get in (I guess because they were considered the most powerful). But I wanted to be in there. So I snuck in with a friend.
I quickly labeled each of the jurors (my own idea). As someone would say something I would just note how each person responded. I.e. number 2 smiles, number 5 shakes head like saying “no”, number 7 looks disinterested. OK? I left after the first day, and BOOM! A man from OSA came up to me and said “we need to see your notes”. I said fine, and gave them to him. Sure enough the next day I was told OSA wanted me to continue.
This entire trial had many stories connected to it, including twice where I stood up and spoke to the judge. But I will tell you these another time.
We were told at the end this was a victory as the motto was “Not one thin dime for Wollershiem”, and supposedly he hadn’t received a dime. I am not sure if he still has. I think it has been awarded over and over, but never paid. I still feel the same about this person, as I knew him before this trial, and he was a conn artist then. I will have to meet him now and find out his side of the story. But that was a long and hard fight.
Mostly I did things for OSA that had to do with PR, or public relations. I worked for RPR (Ron’s Public Relations Office) which is run by Mike Rinder and OSA. Here also in the 80′s we were hired as contracted professionals. It was our job to set up Media with radio stations across the USA. We did, and I found this a lot of fun. The Dianetic stats were the highest ever.
So what did the Sea Org do? Cancel the entire unit, saying the Sea Org was going to take over. Did they? Of course not. But they are famous for this kind of thing.
One time I was asked to go with someone to follow Precilla Coats and Jon Attack. I did, and we followed them to a bookstore. I felt very weird about this, and told OSA that was not something I wanted to be a part of.
Another time they asked me to head up the takeover of the Cult Awareness Network. Again, as I didn’t really feel too good about that, I said no. However somehow I did fill out some papers that I was later told helped put CAN out of business. OSA will do things like that. Announce their plan, and “all you need to do is sign on the dotted line. We will do the rest.”
I continued to assist them, calling up radio shows if someone critical of Scientology was on, etc. In late 1990 Scientology announced, “We are coming up to the year 2000 and getting into the Internet”. The plan was simple. They had computers set up and you were to sit down and write up your success story. You could tag on any hyper-links you want, either Narconon, Criminon, Way to Happiness etc. At the end, they gave you a disk and told you to go home and put this on your computer. That way if anyone wants to contact you, they can”. That was all we were told.
Later I found out that was how they got what is called “the net nanny” onto each computer. This stops people from being able to ever read anything critical of Scientology. It was done secretly, and many Scientologists don’t even know it is on their computer!
Shortly after this was put on, I was asked to help out on the Internet. Someone working with OSA asked me if I would surf the net, and see if I could find any confidential material and if so, report it to OSA. He came over to my house and took off the net nanny, and made ARS one of my “favorite places”. I did this, and mostly I would come up with Andreas at www.xenu.net. At the time I didn’t really get that Scientology was
stopping all views of any critical thoughts of them. I was told this was just to protect the members from seeing any confidential data that was above their “case level” or above what they should know. It made sense at the time.
Andreas seemed to have a huge amount of negative information. I would call OSA and ask them “Why aren’t you getting rid of this guy? He is the worst!” They said they were working on it. To me if there was a devil, it was Andreas. Little did I know he is the exact opposite, and would later help me greatly.
One of the most amazing things is that I never even read any of Andreas’ site. I had known two people who “went crazy” and each time I was told it was from reading the Internet. Later, after I left, I found out the truth. One had been having serious doubts for years, and finally read Messiah or Madman? and a few other books, and realized the fraud he had been a part of, and left. But the other was literally driven crazy by OSA. She had been an OSA op, and had done lots of their dirty work. When she wanted to leave they gave her a bunch of reverse auditing (stuff that makes you much worse) and drugged her, and spit her out on the street. So because of this, and years of hearing how badly reading “entheta” (negative things about Scientology) can effect one, I just didn’t.
This is the end of Part one of OSA 101. Part two will be my final days working with OSA.
Since all of what I did while assisting OSA was something I thought was a good thing, I do not know if I actually hurt anyone, or assisted in harming someone. I don’t think so, but if I did I am truly sorry. I never wanted to hurt anyone. I hope I didn’t, but if I did, will you please write to me?
OSA please don’t do your usual thing and lie and say I hurt you. Just me having to ask you that is pathetic, but true.
Love to all!
Who’s Who in OSA? – The Key Players
By Tory Bezazian
This is from my experience once again…re who is who in OSA as of July, 2000
When I began in 1979 I worked with a lady named Shirley Young. At the time she was in Clearwater, FL and later came to LA. She ran the PR end of OSA in LA for most of the 80′s. Sometime in the 90′s Shirley got pregnant, left the Sea Org, went to Mace-Kingsley Ranch. When I met Shirley in Clearwater she had just given birth to her son, who I later found out was born without legs. UCLA had kindly offered to supply Eric with legs for I think the rest of his life. Sometime around when she got pregnant again (in the 90′s) young Eric had become a bit of a wild man, so they went to the M-K ranch. I am not sure if she is still there.
A few different people took over Shirley’s post. Mostly a lady named Cat Tibar took over her post (after a short stint with a man named Alan Lazar who used to be Shirley’s assistant). Cat is the OSA PR for LA, as far as I know.
I also worked with Pam Shannon who is the DSA (Director of Special Affairs, the name of the OSA staff member at lower orgs) over at LA org. Pam runs a lot of the LA cycles. Pam Shannon is I think in her late 30′s early 40′s (my guess, sorry if I am wrong). She works with the Parishoners group and other OSA local things. She was the person who wanted me to take the signs over to someone’s house and picket outside. She is always at the events and is basically there to handle local OSA cycles, as well as the critics if they come to town. She is one of the people who would call up asking if I could come to the next event to handle any of the critics.
OSA at LA org used to be on the 4th floor and quite open. Now it is still on the 4th floor, but I was never in the last year or two allowed even in their office. Everything is very “tight security” everywhere.
Next is Pam King, who is from OSA Int. which is located in the HGB building on Hollywood Blvd in Hollywood on Hollywood and Ivar. (Pam King is in her 40′s I would guess). Both Pam’s are nice people who I am quite sure have little or no real idea of the overall picture of what they are a part of. They are doing their job, thinking they are “helping create a safe enviornment so people can go free”, I am sure. Of course at the HGB public are never allowed in by themselves. You arrive at the door, greeted by a security guard who takes his work very seriously. He takes your name and asks who you are calling. He calls whomever that is, and tells them you are there. You are never allowed to go up to any floor alone.
Someone will always come down, and get you. They escort you upstairs. As I was only going to OSA, that is all I will tell you of. But in OSA, again I was never really allowed in OSA. I was always brought to the conference room where we would meet. The rest is all behind closed doors.
Above her is a lady named Kirston, who people rarely see but she is always running OSA cycles. Pam King is senior to Pam Shannon, and Kirston is Senior to Pam King. Kirston works out of OSA Int, at the HGB building in Hollywood. She is actually quite young, but high up as far as who is who.
Lynn Farney works out of OSA Int and is one of the people I knew who worked (and probably still works) on the Internet stuff.
There is the secret Internet Mafia, which I will explain more soon.
There are many other people who work in OSA, but these are the people I knew and worked with. Actually I do not know if there are THAT many more people. I know they would like you to think there are lots more, but I don’t think so really.
Of course there is OL Blue himself, Heber as President. And Janet Weiland, the VP of OSA INT and the C of S. (HI Heber and Janet
So there are most of the key players.
Oh yes, in PR there is Mike Rinder, who may be OSA INT and higher up these days. And on the East Coast there is Sharron Runyon who runs PR. Oh yea… and Kay Connally who runs RPR (Ron’s Public Relations Office) in LA.
Now what is RPR? RPR is responsible for LRH’s personal image. Let’s look at how that works:
In the 80′s as I said, RPR hired some of us to set up radio Media around the country about Dianetics. If there are even radio or TV shows that are negative, especially if they mention Hubbard’s name, they are to be “handled” in I think 24 hours.
Books? No problem… we will just send out hoards of OT’s to buy bunches of books to jack up the book sales.
Entheta article? Go pick up the papers in bulk and throw them out.
Earthquake? OSA was there, passing out the Way To Happiness booklets, and Food and clothing. OSA basically takes every advantage to build a communication line or “safeguard” the area. This might include food drives, toy drives, Xmas parade etc. The sad part is they are there to help, but really all most anyone cares about is the STAT. Did it get noticed? Is there any recognition from some high up people? If so, Who? Did it get into the papers?
Of course there is legal, and invest… but I mostly worked in PR, so that is what I am telling you about. I think the others have been pretty well covered in earlier posts by others who were there.
The beat goes on…and these puppies play to win, even if they are killing themselves doing so.
It is a very serious game.
Hope that helps some more…

OSA 101 – Part 3
Will the real Mike Smith please stand up?
By Tory Bezazian
I know many of you have read things from Mike Smith for years.
How do I know? I know because he has told me for years.
Meet Mike Smith.
Mike is a man who is handsome, 5’10 or so, and around 50 years old.
He has been in Scientology for all of his adult life.
Mike was in the SO for I think 20 years or so…. and was originally on the Apollo with L. Ron Hubbard. He has been on staff for most of his adult life, one way or the other.
Mike is a Class 8 auditor, (trained to do NOTs, so Class 9) and a Senior C/S and OT 7. I think he is also OEC, FEBC which just means he is highly admin trained too.
Mike has been declared twice and each time worked hard to make his way back into the fold.
Mike is what in Scientology is known as a “techie”. He is an auditor and a C/S… and in fact, he is still on staff to this day.
Mike works at The Enhancement Center in LA, CA as an auditor and as their Senior C/S (even though he is ex-Sea Org, it was OK’d for him to work there).
So what in the world is someone who is so highly trained doing on ARS?
Mike has been posting on ARS longer than any other Scientologist in good standing, at least that is what he told me last year. He began I believe at it’s inception. He has told me Mike Smith is your favorite identity.
Who is Mike Smith really?
Here is my take on Mike Smith:
Mike’s real name is Bill Yaude. Bill is a Class 8 (trained to run NOTs also), Senior C/S who was in the Sea Org with LRH on the Apollo, is an OT 7, and I think is also OEC, FEBC (admin trained) although he is mostly known and thought of as a “techie” or someone who works in tech.
Bill loves to play games. Pre ARS, Bill could be found almost every night on his computer playing computer games, often war games. I honestly think ARS is to Bill just a better game than the coolest computer war game. Combine it with he is “fighting for religious freedom”, and it makes it a very serious game.
Bill has always played hard. Here on ARS, he has been many different identities. He is usually on in the morning, and each evening, and on the weekends, as well as IRC. I am not sure which one, as when he was showing me, I had no idea what it was. But I do remember he showing me “real time ARS stuff.” It is serious business to Bill. I think he really believes he is getting rid of SP actions, while having fun wiping the “entheta” out. This includes posting tons of psych posts too. He takes this whole thing way more seriously than you can even imagine, and he always plays to win.
Bill is a very smart person and normally is extremely observant. (That isn’t 1.1 Bill, that is true). I really (REALLY) wish he could step out of this game and see it for what it is. But when you have played this game all of your life (and remember, he has been a professional auditor and C/S for most of his adult life)….I know it is next to impossible. But I will say this, Bill, people higher up than you and with more time in have left and
found a very happy life outside the “church”.
Bill used to be one of my very best friends. There are few people I loved more than Bill.
I still love the guy, I just don’t like this stuff he is doing. Pre ARS, he has wonderfulness about him that each of you would love, if you ever had a chance to meet him. People generally love him after just a short time with him, as he is very caring and interested in others. You may have experienced this with Mike Smith, I don’t know. I never read those posts, so all I know is what he has said. Has he changed doing this OSA cycle? You bet! Bill used to be a 100% tech person; there to help each and every person he met. As you know,,,people on ARS who are part of OSA have a much different “plan”. They are here to put you all down, distract you, and divert attention onto other things, and occasionally “enlighten you” if they can. Sure, to them they are protecting their religion against you all who are pointing out many truths they either don’t want to look at themselves, or they don’t want others to see. Bill does feel passionately against the psych’s, so his posts do have some meaning to them. However, honestly for the most part here they are “fillers” as obviously this is the wrong public for that information, as posted by many of you.
So that is who Mike Smith is…or was as of July of this year. Remember, I haven’t spoken to him since then…although he promised he wouldn’t disconnect from me, he has.
I know Bill has gone through my folders (he was my auditor for OT 4-6) as he flew to Clearwater to talk with me when I first went to Stacy’s. He heard my state of Clear had been invalidated while mid OT 7, so he quickly went to see for himself. He returned to tell me “that is the worst case thing that could happen to anyone, and “we will fix it for free”. I appreciated the offer, however since I had long since decided I was done with NOTS, I told him “no thank you” as it was over for me. I was sure now he has something to explain “what the Hell happened to Tory?” That isn’t what happened, but unwilling to confront what actually is, I could tell Bill felt better with this piece of “tech”. It is amazing to me now that I am out how when you are in the “show” you can so easily find things to make your reality right. Here are just a few examples:
Yeah… Lisa was killed by Scientology, but not really… yada yada… re the courts. Take a look, a good hard look at the autopsy photos!
Yes… OT 7 has been squirreled and there is even an HCOB written by Hubbard to say so, but Bill even had that explained! Talk to the Barnes who were declared SP for sending the original 12 page HCOB of Hubbard’s (cut down to 5 pages now) into their C/S’s. HUH?? That doesn’t matter? It doesn’t matter that there are tons of people like myself who were not really winning on OT 7, paid hundreds of thousands of dollars, and were not only not helped, but were harmed due to out tech?
No matter that people are dying like flies on OT 7 and 8 (you laugh Bill, count em!)
Listen to Maria’s testimony (real Class 9) about the deaths and people she audited. Was she hoodwinked too?
No matter that you and I together know four kids who are dead due to suicides, with the one common denominator being disconnection.
Ok, you will say there were other factors and I do not disagree… but each one had one thing in common: disconnection!
No matter that all of the original Class 12′s have left, the Senior C/S Hubbard worked directly with (and there is different data than you and I had re this), tons of exec’s, all 3 of Yvonne’s kids, and the majority of the techie’s and exec’s who were with Hubbard. But you are going to stay and bring the ship completely down? Have you ever stopped to look at the effects of DM with this group? Can you honestly say none of the above matters? Not when you are in the show… and no one I know is more in the show than Bill. But of course they said that about me, too, I am sure.
Bill, I know you love this group. So did I. I love the people in it, our friends, and I love the concept of freedom. But I will tell you this, what you and I love isn’t there. If it was ever, it sure isn’t there now. Golden Age of Tech is one of the biggest con’s I have ever seen, and I wrote that to DM the night he announced it. I got a %#@!ing form letter back.
DM and his regime don’t give a rat’s ass about freedom. I have met many of the SP’s and “really bad” people you and I have sat and talked about. Many of these people (minus “Thaaaayyy”) are some of the nicest, kindest, and well-meaning people I have met in a long time. It is an honor to know them, and I mean that. It is different Bill than you think.
I know you have read everything you can get your hands on, but it just isn’t the same as really meeting them, and I don’t mean in some pretend identity that means nothing really. All emotions are shut off there.
I know how you sit and laugh when “out tech’ is spoken or people are mentioned that you are sure are this or that. The amazing thing is many of them you and I had never ever even met! Now I have, and wow… it is different than you think. And for sure me saying all of this is funny to you.
Well, it ain’t funny to me, pal. I don’t like losing all of my 30 year friends over some bogus SP declare… when all I did was leave Scientology (supposedly a Church!) go see some of my friends, and talk to the Boston Org about Communication. You go look at that video. That is Scientology these days. Communication? These guys can’t communicate with a bug. They are so out tech it is pathetic. And you are backing
There are tons more examples, Bill, but they are only important if you are willing to LOOK. I know you read everything. (Bill is one of the most up on things person I know. If it is out there, Bill knows about it.) The unfortunate part is you are reading it through a totally fixed view. How can you possibly see what I see?
All I would like to say is, Bill,,,,,wake the %#!@ up!!!
What will actually happen re what has been done on this newsgroup and OSA, I do not know. But I do know lying and deceiving people isn’t right, and just like the GO, if people do need to go down, you will no doubt be put at the top of the list my friend. Me writing this may get you in some temporary trouble…but doing nothing and supporting these people will bring you way worse harm.
You all may be mad at Mike Smith, and Travis Sergeant (also Bill, until July of this last year when he said he turned that over to someone else) as well as many others he has pretended to be, but keep in mind he is doing something he thinks is very important, and is helping safeguard his religion. I am not saying he is right, he isn’t. He is dead wrong. All I am saying is he thinks he is doing right. But I am asking you to stop doing this crap on ARS. Leave these people alone. Stop altering their communications, lying to them, pretending you are different people for years and years. COME ON~~~GET HONEST AND STRAIGHT.
You can promote I am deluded, that I have been hoodwinked, am “out of valence” etc. But the truth is, I am free Bill. I am. I feel better than I have felt in years. But you need to look at what you are part of, and really take a hard look at what you are doing.
Remember the GO? Sure you do! And what happened at the end? Hubbard announced that the entire thing was out tech and there was no tech saying to do such harmful, and illegal things. Take a look at what you do here: You cut people’s comm., alter it, pretend you are someone you are not, and basically waste lots of your time and theirs. You are not getting a product here. I remember hearing you speak of ARS for years, before I ever got on. There was always an excitement in your voice about it. I think you really believe you are “handling the SP’s”. You are not! When you began and first showed me ARS, it was almost impossible to find. Now it is one of the top news groups read. Why? Because of what you have been doing! It creates (CREATES) conflict, and people love to read conflict. It may be a game to you, but if you stop and look for one minute at what you are really doing, it is no different than the GO. Scientology is dwindling, and a major reason for it is the Internet. People are used to checking something out before they get into it these days. Once they read a small part of the truth (and I am talking about court doc’s, affidavits, etc) they say “no thanks”.
Pre your OSA scams, ARS was a tiny little newsgroup that a handful of people knew about, and only you of our friends. Now it is one of the most read newsgroups being read today. We know Helena had a big part in this, as she brought on the critics. Now one would think someone making as big a mistake as that would learn from it. Did OSA? Hell no! They just pulled in all the slashdotcom people who are even angrier, this week!
Way to go!!! You all just don’t get it do you? There are people around the world out here ready to stand up for freedom of speech. You are trying to stop it… you will never, ever win. Ever. So you have very much helped create this stop in Scientology, Bill.
I have to say I can hear you laughing right now. Use your tech, look at the stats. ARS is bigger than ever. Bill has been saying for the last few years, “they used to have much worse stuff on ARS, but we have gotten them way off of the real dirt, and blown many critics off of ARS altogether.
Bill’s win last year was how distracted many of you were, and how off of the hard corps news he has brought you (at least that was his take). Has he? Have this band of OSA volunteers really distracted you from your purposes? I don’t think so, but then I wasn’t on here 7 years ago, and some of you were. Let me know… what do you think?
Did Bill pretending to be different identities expand ARS or make it contact like he thinks.
You let Bill know.
Bill, I wish you well. I hope you get out of this conn and back to doing what you love.
I know this is a game, but OSA, which you are a part of, is seriously hurting many people. You are always promoting “taking responsibility”… well, how are you taking responsibility? I could point out many Hubbard pieces of tech you are violating by what you do on ARS, but for everyone I would state, you would have one to back up what you do.
Bill was part of the OSA scam where your words were twisted, changed into recipes, or jumbled, etc. So was I, briefly, having a small roll in
opening some phony accounts (until I realized what the real effects were and then I quit). I will tell you more about that later, but he was/is sort of
the I/C of the volunteers for that.
Bill is much better as an auditor, although I think he finds this much more exciting. I think it is time he hears from each of you. Tell him what it has meant to you to have someone lie to you, twist your words; make fun of you, etc.
Hopefully one day you will wake up Bill and see that you are in a cult, and it is a very tricky one. It is a better show than most, and thus much harder to get out of. I know you think the only reason I am out is due to out tech. That is not true. I am out because I woke up… actually the little conn you ran with me really helped wake me up a lot. I kept thinking, why must you alter people’s communications? My father always taught me to put all of the cards on the table. Let everyone speak his or her mind, and the truth will prevail. Suddenly my good friend and auditor is running a lie shop that is stopping free speech. Yes, that did mean a lot to me, Bill. What could they possibly be saying that is so bad, that you have to lie and deceive them, and pretend to be someone you are not? Well, I found out. Way more than you, at this point, Bill. I can only hope you lift up the Plexiglas and see for yourself.
You may be mad at me for telling who you are… but you had to know this day was eventually going to come. You are lying… why should I hide the truth, when I know it? When you are part of a group that is Actively trying to put me in jail??? It is time to change some conditions here, Bill, and number one is you getting out of this if not illegal, immoral “game”. Say I am in Treason if you like. I am in Treason to an unethical, lying, deceitful small mafia inside of OSA that is hiding from it’s own staff members. This is correct. If you consider that bad, it is time you re-evaluated what you honestly believe in your heart. They are not protection religion. They are not! The picture is way different than you think, and no, they won’t show you. You are their Number One Guy.
So I will leave it with your peers, those you have lied to for year after year, pretending to be someone you are not. Let’s have them tell you how your ‘works’ have affected their lives, and how they honestly feel about what you have been doing over the last 7 years.
Take care my friend, and I hope you join me on this side soon. You are sailing in a sinking ship, and your lies are driving it down faster than almost anything else around.
I hope you come join all the original Class 12′s, ex-exec’s, and the wild critics.. they are fun people!
I wish you well.
ARS….. you’re on the air~

OSA 101 – Part 4
About Black PR tactics
By Tory Bezazian
There is a very definite thing that you can count on with OSA:
If someone starts posting truth, you will find suddenly there will be many posts about this person, slandering him or her. They may not be totally obvious, but suddenly you will just have this “odd” feeling about the person.
That is called Black PR. Black PR is taking something, anything really, to turn on a person and make them look worse. You can use their words, and turn them around so they mean something different. An example of this is perhaps I say I think Joe is working for OSA. He has been attacking me, etc and it just feels weird. If he is really with OSA, here is how they might handle it:
“OH YES sure…Joe is with OSA! When does your paranoia quit? Can you not just have a nice conversation with someone who may have *some* critical thoughts of you without you going into a complete immature upset? Grow up!”
See? Always attack back. That’s Hubbard, and straight OSA.
They may attack how you look. EXP: Saturday one of my “handlers” came up to me and said loudly, “Gee Tory, Your eyes sure don’t look that good”. Now unfortunately for him, he was talking to me. I have always hated that routine, even when I was in the “church” and always told people not to do it. So I told him that, and that for the last 7 months people have consistently told me how much better I look, so I know what he is saying is just BLACK PR, and nothing more.
They may try to start a smear campaign…. spreading little lies here and there, trying to get just one person to go against the person they want to Black PR. If they can get one person posting against who they want, they are happy. Sick, but true. See, if they can just get one person to buy their Black PR, there is a good chance someone else will buy into it too.
How can you tell if it is Black PR?
Well, look. Look at what is said, and then look at the person they are speaking about. If you know the person, but you do not know who the poster is, and the poster is saying something even a bit off re someone you know, make sure to stand up and say something. Some people are really good at this. PTSC is excellent at this… and so is Sten-Arne and of course Andreas. Bunnyann is often good at this, and so is Barbz. Actually now that I start thinking of people, many names come to mind. Warrior, Arnie and Tilman are very good, Beverly is excellent, and so is Bid. Patricia, Greg Barnes, Tommy, Phineas, are all great. The list really goes on and on. Ahh hell, too many to name, but it really makes a difference. Thank each and every one of you for taking a stand against this kind of thing.
I know from working with OSA that their intent is to distract people, to put them down (if they have credibility and know any inside scoop). They will go to unbelievable measures to Black PR someone like this.
Make sure you watch for it, and continue to nail them.
I am sure because I am posting some very true facts, OSA is extremely mad at me and has begun their smear campaign at me. Look at what I have done, and look at whomever is saying things. See if they have actually done things that show the truth about Scientology. Usually the OSA volunteers of course have done nothing. They cannot. They would never pass their Eligibility although maybe now they will try that too. I hope so, as that may be the beginning of the end for them.
There is one easy way to spot Black PR: You were feeling good about a person, and for no good reason now you suddenly are feeling not so good about them.
Pull the string, as they say in the cult. Look. Find out what was said, who said it and what are their actually actions. Mostly you will find they are just like the Wizard of Oz….just lots of wind.
LOVE TO ALL

OSA 101 – Part 5
The Secret Project to Spam the Internet
By Tory Bezazian
As I have posted, I was asked to cruise the net and look for any “OT” material on the Internet. This was where I came upon Andreas’ site, www.xenu.net. I think I was first asked to do this in 1997 or so.
In 1998 a friend of mine, and someone I totally trusted (my auditor, and longtime friend, Bill) called and asked me to do a favor for OSA. He told me it was very important. I told him I would come over and find out what it was. He gave me a bit of money and asked me to go to an address on Wilshire Blvd. at a certain address. He said to just walk up to the door, and tell the man you want to “open an ISP”. He gave me a name to put it
in, and said to give him the money. At the time I knew basically nothing about computers, so I had no idea what this all meant.
I did what he said, and although the young man looked pretty confused, and at first told me to just send it in… Bill had made it clear it was very important to get it signed up right there. So I passed on this urgency, and he said OK and took my (OSA”s) money.
I returned to tell Bill what had occurred. Shortly after he called me to tell me, “You have made Internet History”. Not knowing anything about computers or the Internet, I had no idea what he was referring to, and was just happy it seemed to be a “good product”. Little did I know what this really meant.
Soon after I was invited to do more of these. Again, not having any real clue about them, I was just told by Bill that it was key to handling the critics and religious bigots who were trying to destroy Scientology. Before I could really begin this project, Bill told me to meet him over at OSA INT. Now remember I was already working with the VP of the C of S with the Scientology Parishioners League (SPL), so I was used to OSA INT. However they always keep their projects separate and this was no different.
OSA INT is in a building on Hollywood Blvd. Near Vine. It is called “the HGB” which was the building’s name pre Scientology. The Hollywood Guarantee Building” I think was it’s official name. I arrived there and a guard who is always at the front gate greeted Bill and I. He called up to OSA INT, and a man came down. He was medium height, and had brown hair. Bill introduced him to me. “This is Gavino”. Gavino is Italian, and although I had never seen him before (ever) he seemed to know me. We went back up the elevator to OSA INT, to the reception area. They no longer let public in to the internal areas of OSA. So we sat in their conference room, next to the reception area. I was told I would have to sign something, as this project was top top secret.
Gavino gave it to me to read, and I will never forget my surprise. It may have been one of the huge cracks in the Truman Show.
Here on this paper it said something to the effect of, “I promise not to tell anyone about this project. This would include forever never telling any auditor, any of the exec’s of Scientology, not any ethics officers, etc. I think it even went on to name Heber and a few other well-known execs as people I would never tell. The price was $10,000 if I ever revealed anything to anyone about this, ever. I stood there sort of in shock.
Remember back then I was still planning on going back onto OT 7, which has rigorous sec-checking about everything. How could I not tell my auditor? Bill looked at me calmly and said, “Don’t worry. They have very special auditors at Flag for you. It won’t be a problem.”
Since I trusted Bill completely, I signed it. I shouldn’t have, as there was this queasy feeling I had in my stomach, but I wanted to help out, and I truly knew Bill would never, ever do anything bad or harmful. I forgot to factor in that people do get sucked in within this group, but of course at that point I wasn’t thinking of that.
So now I was part of this top-secret Internet project. The head OSA INT person for this was (and probably still is, the very secret Gavino… no longer secret. And to those feeble minded who feel this is “bad” to out someone who did something of this nature… try looking at the whole picture!) If Gavino ever called me on the phone, he was known as “Jack”. Gavino is Clear, and I don’t know how long he has been in Scientology, but he was/is the I/C of this very secret Internet project. I was told, although it was totally secret, it was 100% legal. I will tell you more of this as we go along.
And to Gavino… remember when you said “I told you about her Bill”? Well, I am sure you are feeling just so right at this time. You knew… or so you thought. The truth is, you are endangering your “church’ and yes, I am telling these people about it. You and your OSA mafia have sworn on ARS that C of S had “nothing to do with the spamming”. Well you and I know differently, and at the very least, I say they are owed the truth.
In any battle, people do what they feel is best for their group. I want you to really take a hard look at what exactly this OSA mafia group has been doing. Read over what Hubbard himself said about the Guardian’s Office back when they were busted, and re-evaluate what you are doing.
Don’t you honestly think it is time for a new game plan?
Think it over.

Setting Up the Secret Internet Accounts
By Tory Bezazian
Ok…so now we are up to the accounts. How did this happen? Well, at first I was asked to go to various areas and cities. The main ones I remember were: Chicago, Dallas, Wisconsin, and Las Vegas, and possibly Houston, although I am not sure.
As I have said, the very first account I opened was on Wilshire Bvd. here in LA, CA. Some have asked me if I went with another girl. No I didn’t. I wasn’t sure of the date, but Bob told me the first one that occurred was in 1996. I am almost positive that was set up by me. Bill had asked me to open an account, and after said, “You have made Internet History. This has never been done in the history of the Internet”. Now he wouldn’t tell me what had actually occurred, and at the time since I knew nothing of computers I was fine not to hear it. ISP’s sounded like Martian talk to me.
He had given me some money, and an address to go to. He told me usually this occurs via the mail, or Internet, but we needed to push through and open it up live. So I went, and knocked on the door about 4 in the afternoon. An Oriental man came out and looked surprised. I told him whatever Bill had said to say “I need to open an account” basically. He told me normally people send in by mail, or call in with a credit card. I told him I didn’t use credit cards, and that I needed to open it up today. I gave him some fake name, address, and phone number, and the cash, and that was the beginning.
Then quite a bit of time rolled on, with Bill doing things on ARS, but I wasn’t really involved, except for the cruising the Internet, looking for OT material. As I have said before, basically since I knew very little about the Internet, I would do one basic search. I would type in “NOTS” and look around. Almost always if it came up, this one address would pop up first: www.xenu.net! I would call Bill and sometimes OSA and tell them, “you have to get this guy off of here~ He has TONS of stuff about Scientology on this site”. (Remember, as I was told by OSA two people I knew had ‘gone crazy’ reading the Internet, I never actually read anything on Andreas’s site until well after I left Scientology). Of course nothing happened, except later down the line Andreas came to my rescue, and has become one of my very best friends. J
Later (I think it was in ’97) Bill asked me to help on a very secret project. He told me it was HIGHLY confidential, and I was chosen to help out. I was used to highly confidential things from being on their second to the highest secret top level for 7 years, so I said, “OK”.
We drove over to the HGB (Hollywood Guarantee Building) which is where all of the senior International Exec’s are located. (Of course there is Gold, out in Hemet, where to top dogs are located, but at the HGB are the exec’s who run the C of S Internationally.)
We went up to one of the top floors to OSA INT, being escorted as always. A man named Gavino came out, and we were introduced. (Recently someone asked me his last name and I found an old commendation chit from the Internet I/C, Gavino Idda, but at the time and as long as I knew him, he was just known as “Gavino”). Gavino is a medium height, thin, brown haired Italian with a true Italian accent and identity. Having never seen him before in my 30 years in Scientology, my guess was he had come recently from Italy to OSA INT, but that was never confirmed.
Bill had been my auditor and friend for 20 plus years, so I trusted him more than really almost anyone at this point. Bill told me I needed to read and sign a waiver. Scientology is big on secret things, and waivers both in the “church”, and in WISE. For years I had signed my life away consistently on special projects no one could know about, or OT levels that were top secret.
I read it and it spoke of this being a top-secret project, unknown by most all of Scientology staff. It spoke of how anyone signing this could never, ever, ever talking to anyone EVER about any of this. I couldn’t tell my auditor, an ethics officer, any of the staff of C of S, many of the execs. This was a top, top-secret project. I was worried this sounded like it may be similar to the old GO (Guardian’s Office) type of stuff, which of course ended up with 9 people going to jail, the entire GO being disbanded, and members sec-checked to death to this day, having to of course pay for every hour of it. Sec-checking is this church grilling you for your crimes, or unethical things you may have done. It is considered “cleaning you up” but when you get to these OT levels with the BT’s and Clusters (spirits hanging around you supposedly), of course it can be endless as “they” may read on Scientology’s electronic meter on anything, literally. (For more information on how this works, see www.xenu.net or www.lisatust.net re OT 7′s Speaking Freely).
Bill told me emphatically that “NOTHING WE WILL EVER DO IS ILLEGAL. All you are doing, Tory, is opening up Internet accounts in various people’s names. There is nothing illegal about that.” Now again, you have to keep in mind how much I trusted Bill. As I have posted, he was not only my good friend for 30 years, but he had been my trusted auditor for OT 4, 5 and OT 6 set-ups. He is a highly trained auditor and a Senior C/S. I honestly was positive he would never do anything illegal, or even bad. I still think he ‘thinks’ the spamming, lying, etc that he has done on ARS for 7 years isn’t illegal, or even unethical. In his view, he is fighting for his religion, and whatever needs to happen to “save” it is fair, at least I am pretty sure this is how he feels. If he has the courage, he can clarify it exactly. I do not say that lightly, for I am quite sure his ass is on the line at this point, and it would take a great deal of courage to speak out. However, many have before me, and most of them were all by themselves.
I didn’t feel too good about not being able to tell anyone, as at the level I am at there are serious security checks where this kind of thing would definitely come up, and if you understood the upper levels, as I said almost anything can “read” or to them mean there IS something you did. All of this costs time and money, neither of which I was too keen on wasting. Bill assured me there were excellent, “special” auditors at Flag who could and would handle anything I needed. With that, I signed it. This was all with the agreement that IF I did tell anyone at all about any part of this at all, I had to pay $10,000 I think, or maybe $100,000. I cannot remember, but I remember just deciding never ever to tell anyone a thing, and I haven’t until telling the entire world here. There is a point where one realizes these kinds of secrets are not healthy.
Ok, so now I was signed up. At first it was Bill, a girl with a nick of Lizzyapple (liz), and someone named Carlene, and of course Gavino from OSA INT. Carlene (I think that is her name) was an exec at CC years ago, and now uses a cane. I only mention that as maybe someone will know who she is. I believe she also opened up accounts, as did Liz.
Later Jim Klurgis joined (an OT 8, FSM here in LA) and a man named CJ who I really liked too. They both may very well be still posting on ARS, as well as Bill, and at OSA was Lynn Farney who is on the Internet project. I am not sure what all these other people did, as I wasn’t told. They were just “part of the project”.
I think the first place I went was Chicago. I flew in and it was a disaster. Bill had pulled off of the Internet a list of ISP’s, however none of them would answer. Basically I finally found some open, went there, told them I wanted to open up an account, and gave them a cashier’s check, which I would purchased at a local convenience store. We always used local phony addresses and phone numbers as well as phony names so it couldn’t be traced. As it was hard to find places open in Chicago, and they were miles and miles apart, we decided I should head north and find more local ISP’s.
Then I rented a car and drove all around Wisconsin. I met some wonderful people up there, and later when I realized how they were getting screwed, I really felt bad. Again, I would just find Internet providers, go in, and tell them I didn’t use credit so I am coming in person. They always seemed a bit put off, but would have me fill out some paperwork and take my cashiers check. I would have called them anonymously prior to find out exactly how much it would cost.
Each trip OSA paid for the airplane ticket, the hotels I stayed in, my food, and expenses. I was given so much cash to use for food, and hotels. In Las Vegas I snuck in and heard Bill Gates with 7,000 other techies. I think I knew at that meeting that my destiny had to do somehow with techies and computers, although I would have never guessed in one million years how!
Ok,,,,,so move down the line. I never really knew what was going on re Lizzy and Bill, but there was some serious friction. She had come on after me, but had been working closely with Bill on the back end stuff (I think she was opening accounts at first, and later moved into some of the spamming). I was told most of the computer stuff was done from some highly trained people on the East coast. Finally one day Bill told me I didn’t need to fly around any more. They had figured out how to do it from one location.
I was sent over to Lizzy’s apartment in Glendale. She and I went upstairs and here was a huge room with 4 or 5 computers on one long desk. Get the picture of one long desk along a wall, and 4-5 computers on it. That is how it looked. Again, you have to realize still I had no idea what all they were doing with these accounts. They had told me they were “handling the SP’s”. Fine. The most I had seen was Bill posting on ARS, and IRC. He would show me various posts, and due to no experience with computers, I found it odd and just not something I was really interested in. Bill was very interested in all of this, and as I have posted, was working on it in the morning, in the evening, and on much of the week-end.
Now I am pretty sure what went on with the computers at Liz’s house was just one operation, as Bill had told me the majority of “stuff” (computer stuff) occurred from the East coast. I have no idea if this is true or not, and he told me they would never tell me, so I would never be bothered with depositions. To someone reading this they may say they cannot believe one wouldn’t insist on knowing what was going down. However, keep in mind you are looking at it from the viewpoint of knowing some seriously bad stuff went down. To me I trusted Bill, and actually even OSA at that point, and as a ‘church’ I was positive they would never make the same mistake they had previously with the GO. Also, they really make the “other side” out to be these horrible people who will do anything to harm you. So frankly, I didn’t want to know more than was needed. Also, not having a clue re computers, I was quite sure I wouldn’t really understand it anyways. So to continue….
Now I am in Lizzy’s house. She tells me the new plan. Call up Seattle. Find an ISP, and get their phone number. Call them and make sure they will if need be take a money order due to circumstances. Then call up a post office box place and order a mailbox, and get the address. They would say we couldn’t use it until they received our check, and we would say fine. All we needed was an official address. We would explain we were opening this up for our Uncle, or sister, or whomever. Lizzy had phone books from the areas they wanted these signed up in, so we could look and just randomly pull out a phone number. Then we would call the ISP, tell him the story, give him the phony address, phone number, and name of our “uncle”, and tell them we were sending them a cashier’s check made out to whatever they wanted. We usually purchased 3 months at a time, unless they would only give us one month. Some of these ISP’s had a one month free, but we actually wanted to pay them. Later I realized why, as if we took the free month, they could cancel it easier. At least this is what I think was the reasoning.
Of course ALL of this was done on phone cards, so nothing could be traced AT ALL. Security was of the highest concern here. If we ever called each other, we had phony names even then “incase the SPs are tapping our phones”. Gavino was “Jack”. If I e-mailed Bill, I always told him I was going to set up another “party”. That was my own code for this deal. But all this time, I really was trusting Bill that this was totally legal. Suddenly while at Lizzy’s I started to get the picture.
I still don’t know what exactly she would do, but I could see her flying from one computer to the next, doing something. She was extremely hyper and excited about whatever she was doing. I remember thinking how odd this all of this was turning out to be. I was starting to get the picture something much different than I thought, at least from my moral code, was going down.
In the evenings I started to pop onto ARS and look. That is when I saw all of the communications of people being altered, changed, etc. Words were being scrambled, changed into other things, etc. I remember asking Bill, as it seemed like it would be so obvious it was coming from C of S. He told me they were doing the same in many different Newsgroups, so it would have the appearance of being from “just some hacker”. Being a firm believer in Freedom of Speech, I was very much against that. However, I was in pretty deep at this point, as you can see. I will post my exit from this group in OSA part 7.
So that is how I opened the accounts. I think Lizzy and the other girl I mentioned also opened them up, in different locations. As OSA tries to keep people in the dark, I never heard what they were doing really.
I cannot say enough how sorry I am for hurting so many people’s lives having set up these accounts. I promise you, had I known from the beginning what was actually going down, I would have never, ever contributed to this in any way. But ignorance is never really an out. So I stand here before each of you, saying yes, I did what I did. I wasn’t made to do it. I did it. I am accountable, as best I can be. I know there are many questions each of you has, and I am sorry if there are certain names or specifics I do not know. I know OSA will deny this and say I am lying. They have to. But OSA, both staff and volunteers, keep in mind one thing: People are leaving your group almost daily. It is very uncomfortable to sit with lies such as these. All I need is one of those spammers to leave and tell the “rest of the story”, and you are toast. So I suggest you don’t lie, in court. But that is a bit of an oxymoron at this point, isn’t it?
Again, to each of the critics, whose words and communications were altered and changed, I am sorry. But I am here to say to you, yes, your perceptions were correct. This was (and probably still is) being run directly out of Church of Scientology, OSA International. Their address is,
Church of Scientology, OSA INT Att: Gavino
6331 Hollywood Blvd. Hollywood, Ca 90028.
Their main phone number is (323) 960-3500, unless they have changed it since I last posted it. Remember, only Gavino and Lynn know about this project, at least that I know of at OSA INT. Of course there may be many more people, but only time will tell on that one. As you have seen by the waver I had to sign, many of the Staff of Scientology know nothing about this secret inner criminal mafia run by Gavino and done mostly by public. How convient they do it this way, eh? That way IF people have to get nailed, guess who will? You got it, the public!
To the ISP’s who were so badly effected by this, I cannot tell you how sorry I am that I trusted these people that their actions would be both legal and moral. They were not, and I can only say to each of you I am very sorry I was ever a part of this group. Telling this story is a bit scary for me, but I know in my heart the least you are owed is the truth.
To OSA and especially Gavino, you are doing EXACTLY what the Guardian’s Office did, with the exact same justifications. You say this is for your “church”. It is not. It is some weird, immoral (if not illegal) very bad game that you are playing that is both going to hurt your “church” and will have bad effects for years to come. Wake up!
To the OSA volunteers, all I can say is listen to your heart. I know the drill. You honestly think I am bad, and all of these critics are bad. You have been told they are religious bigots and you are standing there like Warriors, standing strong to protect your “church’. It sounds so good when you are inside, it really does. You feel like you are doing such good, and being so “ethical’ and honestly you think you are doing the best you can to help the group. It is a very insulated group, so even if they are reading each post, they are reading them from within the Truman show….and thus they don’t see the wall!! All I can ask is that you think very hard back to when you first got into Scientology: Is this honestly what you thought you would be doing?
I wish you well, and I hope some of you come and tell all. It is very healing to get out of the secret jungle, and into the real world of honesty and truth.
