The 1982 Clearwater Hearings

The Hearings

When 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.


City Commission 



Included in those documents was "Operation Normandy" which was the blue-print for the cult's take-over of the city of Clearwater.

Michael Flynn

The Clearwater City Commission invited attorney Michael Flynn to come before the city to present witnesses and evidence about the criminal nature of this destructive group.

Scientology was to be given equal time to respond to the charges.

For one full week, the citizens of Clearwater watched the hearings live on the local cable system.  The entire hearing is now on-line.
