Operation Freakout, also known as Operation PC Freakout, was a Church of Scientology covert plan intended to have the U.S. author and journalist Paulette Cooper imprisoned or committed to a mental institution. The plan, undertaken in 1976 following years of church-initiated lawsuits and covert harassment, was meant to eliminate the perceived threat that Cooper posed to the church and obtain revenge for her publication in 1971 of a highly critical book, The Scandal of Scientology. The Federal Bureau of Investigation discovered documentary evidence of the plot and the preceding campaign of harassment during an investigation into the Church of Scientology in 1977, eventually leading to the church compensating Cooper in an out-of-court settlement.
LRH’s Day of Reckoning came when the Welsh-American Sr. Accountant and Dad’s Managing Accountant met with him, and I am told they said, “Enough is enough. We are only getting the run around. You get the answers we need, or we will end our work now.” Dad appeared, “fired up,” at my office door, and said simply, “Come with me.”
We walked to LRH’s office, one block south. Now in his sixties, Dad was tall, well-built and strident. We walked up the steps of the old house and entered a former living room. Before us were a desk and a young woman. Dad asked to see Ron, and the woman replied, using words I shall never forget, “Dr. Hubbard does not talk to mortals.”
