In his Scientology Intelligence Tech issue, 'Intelligence Actions - Covert Intelligence Data Collection', Hubbard described his 2nd wife, Sara Northrup, as having been a Russian spy, whose actual name was "Sara Komkosadamanov."
This was December 1969. Clearly, Hubbard knew better, and was simply applying his "Propaganda tech," by identifying his 2nd wife as a Communist. Shortly afterwards, having surveyed public opinion, he shifted over to calling his perceived enemies "Nazis," rather than "Communists."
In the early 1970s, when Sara's redheaded daughter, Alexis, was visited by an agent of Hubbard, that agent read a prepared statement describing her mother as having been a prostitute, and also a spy for the Nazis.
The details of this bizarre visit can be found in a letter from Sara Northrup to Paulette Cooper.
How much of Scientology's view of the world - and the universe - did Hubbard actually believe; and how much was knowing and deliberate fabrication?
