Department 20 was responsible for Operation Snow White, an ill-advised scheme to purge US Government files of "Black PR" against Scientology. Scientology was caught in the late 1970s, and many Scientologists in the Guardian Office (Department 20's name at the time) went to prison. Mary Sue Hubbard, wife of L. Ron Hubbard's and director of the G.O., was "denounced" by the Church and declared a Suppressive Person in a sham attempt by Scientology to "come clean". In fact, Mary Sue Hubbard lives quite comfortably and free from standard Suppressive Person "handling" by the Church, apparently the beneficiary of a secret deal which transferred Hubbard's copyrights to the Religious Technology Center.
Several facts become clear upon reading these OSA Network Orders. These Network Orders show that the lawyers and Public Relations personnel of Scientology are not telling the truth in a significant number of places.
These OSA Network Orders are being used by Scientology today whenever OSA deals with critics, the Government, or the general public. As can be seen from the Orders, Hubbard cultivates sedition, conspiracy, libel, paranoia, and disrespect for law and order within G.O./OSA. He also expounds on the conspiracy against Scientology and the insanity of Government, feeding OSA's false sense of "religious persecution". Hubbard never cancelled these documents, so they form part of the unchanging "scriptures" that guide the actions of Scientology.
Scientology tends to rebut adverse information about them by attacking the writer of the criticism through legal means. True to form, rather than discuss why this information and analysis is incorrect, Scientology in the guise of the LRH Library directed their lawyer, Helena Kobrin, to send an e-mail message threatening a lawsuit unless I take this information down.
In reply, I have sought proof beyond simply their assertion of ownership, as well as explained my position with respect to the Fair Use section of copyright law that specifically allows non-commercial and educational use of an unpublished work for the purposes of commentary.

I fully expect at some point to be harrassed by the infamous lawyers of Scientology over use of their "trademarked" triangles. (One wonders why a non-profit organization needs a trademark.) My defense is that I have created an artistic expression that complements the information being presented.
