This is an excerpt from the book Watergate: The Hoax, by Ashton Gray, now on sale at AmazoniBooks, Barnes & Noble, and other fine book retailers. This is Chapter 19, “Tangier, Morocco: The Real Watergate”:

“Watergate” is a code word.
William E. Colby, Director of Central Intelligence

The CIA . . . they’re supposed to tell the embassy everything.
Stuart W. Rockwell, alleged diplomat, “Appeaser of Islam”

If a title could be given to Stuart W. Rockwell to summate his career, it should be “Appeaser of Islam.” At the time the Sea Org arrived at the island of Corfu, Greece, in August 1968, Rockwell was the US State Department’s Deputy Assistant Secretary, Near East Affairs. The Near East Affairs desk covered Greece, Turkey, Cyprus, and Iran, so Rockwell was heavily vested in Greek affairs.

Across the Potomac from the State Department, at CIA Langley headquarters, E. Howard Hunt was in charge of dirty deeds in Europe as Chief of European Covert Operations. The CIA’s European Division included Greece and Turkey, so Hunt and Rockwell were joined at the hip in facing this new development of Hubbard having turned up at Corfu with his fleet of ships.

As part of the “special relationship,” Hunt and Rockwell had another roach-in-a-suit scurrying around on the island, his antennae almost tied in a knot with self-important prejudice and loquacious loathing of Hubbard and the arriving Scientologists. His name was Major John Forte, and playing quietly was not his forte. He supposedly was the “honorary British vice-consul” on Corfu—whatever that meant—and he soon reported to Britain’s Foreign Office the arrival of “the “sinister Scientology ship.”

In late August or early September 1968 (sources differ), the British Home Office sent Forte strutting pompously off on an errand to the Royal Scotman to hand-deliver a message to L. Ron Hubbard that Hubbard was persona non grata in England. What this had to do with Hubbard being in Greece is a roach-mind sort of conundrum, so don’t try to make sense of it, but there is no doubt that the Home Office was jerking on the ends of strings being pulled by MI6, causing Forte to jerk on the end of his strings, and so go to the ship to be a jerk. That, it seems, was his forte.

It did him no good. He had to hand over the letter to the ship’s supercargo, who met him at the gangplank, and weeks later Forte got a response saying that Mr. Hubbard was away on an excursion and not on the ship.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the world, CIA psychiatrist Max Fink was Professor of Psychiatry at New York Medical College, and was busy setting up the first electroshock facilities there. Fink had been given a grant by the National Institute of Mental Health for funds “to compare unilateral vs. bilateral” electric jolts to people’s brains, “as well as multiple treatments in one session vs. single treatments in a series.” Oh, those crazy fun shrinks, calling shuddering electric jolts “treatments.” Fink also was heavily involved in CIA drug experiments on unwitting patients at the time, which included:

A. Fenfluramine
B. Cyclazocine
C. Doxepin
D. Recent Experimental Compounds
1. GPA 41299, S 42548, CP 14368
2. Other presumed psychoactive compounds
3. Drugs of abuse—opiates and cannabis

There’s no record of whether Fink was delivering volts and jolts of electricity to his drug experiment subjects, too, but evidence in the records that are available from MK-ULTRA makes it a high likelihood.

Also in September 1968, a man named Jim Dincalci “started training in psychology in graduate school at New York Medical College,” which is where Fink was setting up his shock machines. Dincalci reportedly was pursuing a graduate degree in nursing. (Dincalci later will be one of only two people who supposedly is with L. Ron Hubbard when Hubbard disappears from Tangier, Morocco, in 1972.)

Meanwhile, back in Corfu, Scientology students kept arriving from Saint Hill and other locations around the globe for something, and on 24 September 1968, Hubbard upped the ante. Again. Onboard the Royal Scotman (probably still chuckling about Forte) he gave the first lecture to students of the new Class VIII Auditor Course. The lectures were highly confidential and dealt with the most advanced technology related to the OT levels. The CIA and the Five Eyes were left on the outside trying to look in. Again.

The next day, 25 September, a woman named Kima Churchill from Rhodesia, who had training as a nurse, joined the Sea Org. (She later will become Kima Douglas, and will be central to the disappearance of Hubbard and its long-running cover-up.)

Within a month, on 15 October 1968, the last Class VIII Course lecture was delivered, and two days later, on 17 October, “all 35 new Class VIII’s were returned to their respective orgs,” taking this new high-level technology to Scientology organizations all around the world.

By 3 November 1968, Hubbard had collected more evidence that the source of attacks on him and Scientology were being orchestrated by the National Association of Mental Health and the World Federation of Mental Health—and those, of course, were connected through the CIA and Five Eyes to the Operation Mockingbird mouthpieces. The WFMH had held its 20th annual convention in London starting on 5 August that year, and Hubbard’s view was that the various groups associated with it were in league to keep up a relentless attack because of the threat Scientology posed to countless billions of dollars in revenues for psychiatrists seeking to impose control over the minds of men, while the goal of Scientology was for humankind to become freer and more self- determined.

It’s almost as though Hubbard had been peering into a crystal ball; less than two weeks later, one of the preferred prostitutes of Operation Mockingbird, Life magazine, hit the streets on 15 November 1968 with hatred so caustic that it rivaled the sarcasm from THE REAL DEEP THROAT, practically dripping holes through the pages. The headlines were supermarket tabloid material, as usual:

“Scientology: A dangerous method of mind-probing attracts a large cult. A true life nightmare. A growing cult reaches dangerously into the mind—SCIENTOLOGY.”

It is a remarkable irony that Amos Jessup—the son of John Jessup, one of the high-level executives of Henry Luce’s Time/Life conglomerate—was at that moment a high-level executive of the Sea Org, having been made Captain of the Avon River. (Jessup will later be indispensable to the cover-up of Hubbard’s disappearance from Tangier, Morocco.)

It must have been frustrating indeed for the CIA to learn that the very next night after the Life article, on 16 November, L. Ron Hubbard was treated almost like royalty on the island of Corfu:

Local traders unashamedly welcomed the estimated $50,000 the Sea Org was spending in Corfu every month, and on 16 November, Hubbard was invited to a reception in his honor at the Achilleion Palace, a lavish casino on the island. . . . He was accorded a standing ovation as he entered the palace.

He wrote up his impression of the event the following day in the tear-sheet that came out daily on the flagship, called the “Orders of the Day” (OODs):

The dinner for Corfu VIPs went off like clockwork with Mr. Steinhauser of the Achilleion Casino as host and the top Corfu people there.

The only slight mar was a London Sunday Times reporter [Alexander Mitchell]. Earlier the local British Consul [Major John Forte] tried to push him into the party, offending the Corfu VIPs. He got a table nearby and bobbed up to introduce himself and again much offended the VIPs. The host confided he had already confiscated the man’s camera. These Corfu people work very hard to protect us. We are grateful that they do.

The dinner itself was excellent and in a very pleasant atmosphere, a large number of VIPs, good music.

That same day, 17 November 1968, the Sea Org pulled off another PR coup with the same Corfu VIPs, holding a christening ceremony to rename the Royal Scotman as the Apollo. The other two ships also were renamed, making all three of them named in honor of gods and goddesses from the Greek pantheon, with the Enchanter becoming the Diana, and the Avon River being renamed the Athena.

If all that approbation weren’t cause enough for alarming the hounding spooks and the psycho-establishment, on the same day as the christening an article appeared in the London Sunday Times—by Alexander Mitchell, that reporter who had been trying to get his nose under the tent at the VIP dinner—saying that Hubbard was “negotiating with local businessmen to buy the Delphinia Hotel in the remote south” of Corfu to “give him a land base.”

Then there was a weird turn of events—and “weird” is an infinitely expanding concept when dealing with the dispassionate facts of Watergate, the hoax. Bob “Blowtorch” Komer, a CIA veteran and personal friend of Daniel Ellsberg, was suddenly pulled from where he had been stationed in Vietnam and was named on 24 October 1968 as a “non-career appointee” to be US Ambassador to Turkey. That put a perfect triumvirate of hellions hovering over Hubbard and the ships of the Sea Org: E. Howard Hunt over Greece and Turkey for CIA, Stuart W. Rockwell over Greece and Turkey at State, and Bob “Blowtorch” Komer for State at the embassy in Turkey.

Why Turkey? It’s no accident that Komer was put there. There were strong rumors afloat (pun unavoidable) that Hubbard was considering establishing a Scientology organization on land at Corfu, which would provide Scientology with a foothold on Greece. Given the downright alarming rate at which Scientology was expanding around the world (alarming to its enemies), nothing could have been more infuriating or terrifying—or both—to the leaders of Islam. No matter what “modernization” had been established in Turkey by Ataturk, Turkey has been of central, almost consuming interest to the real Muslims, the true Muslims, the fundamentalist Muslims, since the fall of the Ottoman Empire.

As recently as August 2014, a leading magpie of the Muslim Brotherhood, Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, declared in a video speech: “We came to Turkey to assess the Fourth Assembly of the Union of Muslim Scholars in Istanbul, capital of the Islamic Caliphate! . . . Turkey is the Caliphate State, and Istanbul is its capital . . . Turkey unites religion and the world, Arab (Wahhabist Sunnis) and Persian (Shiites), Asia and Africa, and it (the Caliphate) should be based upon this nation (Turkey).”

Even The Washington Post has opined that “many wonder whether the secularism embedded into Turkey by Ataturk is fading.” Some—those who actually understand the unyielding mandates of Islam for world domination—reasonably wonder whether the purported “secularism” ever really was otherwise than faded, especially given the fact that Turkey is over 98 percent Muslim.

In 1968, the flames of desire for the revival of the Caliphate were merely suppressed into embers, not extinguished, and are being fanned back to life at the time of this publication. Turkey, bordered by Iran, Iraq, and Syria to the east, and Greece to the west, is strategically vital to the Caliphate ever being able to overrun Europe in its quest for complete domination over the world. In fact, the fervor for a Caliphate may never have been higher than in late 1968, in the wake of the 1967 Six Day War with Israel. By the time the Sea Org ships had settled into the Corfu harbor, 57 Islamic states already were beginning the process of forming the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, which describes itself as “the collective voice of the Muslim world.” That organization holds Islamic Sharia law as superior to all human and civil rights, superior to all “man-made” law (never mind where Sharia came from), superior to every non-Islamic constitution in the world—including the Constitution of the United States.

The very word “Islam” means “submission.”

Scientology advocates one and only one survival course for Man: greater freedom. Scientology is anathema to Islam. Never doubt it for a moment.

Scientology and Islam do not mix, and never will.

Scientology could not be allowed to establish a base in Greece, and it’s a sure bet that the oil-rich Islamic nations were using all their influence on Turkey to deliver that message to the CIA and the Five Eyes, loud and long.

Komer had to be brought in by the CIA to pour banana oil on the troubled waters in Turkey and set up a holding action until Hubbard and the Sea Org could be driven out of Greece. Stuart “Appeaser of Islam” Rockwell unquestionably was brought in on the CIA’s plans for Hubbard, and used all his influence to make that happen. (Komer will only be in place as US Ambassador to Turkey for a few months, until shortly after Hubbard and the Sea Org are run out of Greece. Rockwell soon will tail Hubbard and the Sea Org to Morocco, getting posted there as US Ambassador in Rabat, and will be in that position when Hubbard disappears from Tangier in 1972.)

But the plan to drive out the Sea Org wasn’t going well. The damned Scientologists were much too popular.

CALL IN THE US NAVY
On 11 December 1968, L. Ron Hubbard upped the ante. Again. In the Apollo OODs of that date he made an announcement to the Sea Org members:

OT VII has been researched by me. I have not written it up.

I have almost finished OT VIII.

I was sort of waiting until I’d done the whole of VIII before I wrote up VII. VII could be written up almost any time.

Of course, the roster of Sea Org members by that time included infiltrators that had been sent in by the Five Eyes. The news was soon racing around the world to the chief spooks.

Around the same time as his announcement, a new issue of the American Medical Association’s magazine Today’s Health started arriving to subscribers. In it was an article called “Scientology, Menace to Mental Health.” Somehow, the AMA had managed to get some hack to rewrite the same tired old “dangerous cult” story that had been being written and rewritten by the psycho-establishment and Operation Mockingbird since 1950. In what must have been merely an oversight, the article didn’t mention that at that very moment “Dr.” Max Fink was shooting household electrical current through the brains of unwitting and unwilling patients, or that “Dr.” Ewen Cameron had been subjecting people to the endless horrors of “psychic driving,” all being paid for by taxpayer dollars, all in institutions fully blessed and sanctified by the AMA, all in collusion with the CIA.

On or about 20 December 1968, CIA Director Richard Helms traveled to Paris, ostensibly on a honeymoon, but while he was there he met with longtime superspook Vernon Walters. (Within a few years Walters will become Helms’s deputy during Watergate, the hoax, and the disappearance of Hubbard from Morocco.)

Meanwhile, on the other side of the world, on Christmas Day 1968, Daniel Ellsberg flew to New York City from DC, where he met at the Pierre Hotel with Henry Kissinger, who Ellsberg describes as “the long-time protégé and adviser of Nelson Rockefeller.” Indeed. (Another protégé of Nelson Rockefeller had been Douglas “Ragtop” Caddy, who later will appear “gratuitously” to be the first attorney for the Watergate “burglars” in DC.) Ellsberg had meetings with Kissinger over the next three days.

Shortly thereafter, around the turn of the New Year of 1969, the CIA started paying a man named Eugenio Rolando Martinez y Creaga, a.k.a. Rolando Martinez, a monthly retainer. (Martinez will be a key player in Watergate, the hoax.)

Around the same time, a man named William J. Galbraith—who has been named in some sources as CIA—was assigned to Morocco. (He will soon be involved in an incident with the Sea Org in Morocco, after a curious visit to the White House in the beginning stages of Watergate, the hoax.)

Meanwhile, back in Corfu, there had been rumblings about some action to be taken against the Scientologists—all of it stirred up by the raving roach, Major John Forte. On 20 January 1969, four Greek commercial associations sent a letter to the Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister of Greece, attempting to put a stop to any such action:

Dated 20 January 1969

To their Excellencies, Prime Minister G. Papadopoulos and Deputy Minister S. Pattakos, Athens.

For many months there lies anchored in Corfu Harbour a ship named “Apollo” on which functions Professor Hubbard’s Philosophy School. So far this school has never given cause for any misunderstandings but on the contrary it spends considerable sums to buy supplies from the local market. These sums so spent give considerable boost to the anaemic Corfu market. We now learn that various persons entirely foreign to Corfu are trying to persuade the Government to cancel the permit given to the vessel to remain without giving any specific reasons against the school.

Since as far as we know nothing suspicious exists against this school and since it is not permissible for foreigners to run our homes we submit to you our warmest plea to disregard these efforts of said foreigners and to allow the vessel to remain in Corfu. This school possessing serious capital and an extensive net of branches abroad plans to get established in Corfu permanently and Corfu tourism would profit greatly.

Shopkeepers Society, Moutsos

The letter did its job. Days later, Yannis Lagonikas, Secretary-General of the Ministry of Mercantile Marine, telegraphed a reply:

In reply to the organisations’ telegram addressed to the Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister, we have the honour to inform you that from the part of the Ministry of Merchant Marine there was never any objection for SS “Apollo” remaining in Corfu. (Signed) I. Lagonikas, Secretary General Ministry Merchant Marine.

It was going to take some big guns to change this situation, and it couldn’t wait; Hubbard was going full steam ahead with his plans to set up an organization on Corfu, and it was going to include an Advanced Org, delivering the OT levels. It’s little wonder, then, that on 11 February 1969, the Secretary of State sent a memorandum to the newly elected incoming President of the United States, Richard Nixon, entitled “Steps to Emphasize US Interest in, and Friendship for, Turkey.” Not one word was said specifically about Scientology being next door to Turkey, in Greece, but the document had been “cleared by Rockwell,” and in diplomat-speak conveyed a sense of urgency about mollifying and appeasing Turkish interests.

At the same time, high-level negotiations were going on with another Islamic force, King Hassan II of Morocco. He put forward a false front of being progressively modern, but history has revealed that he was a narcissistic despot given to psycho-establishment torture and executions for people he saw as enemies. He had long been in bed with the CIA, and had even had them help him set up his torture facilities with electroshock machines, but he was always threatening to cozy up to communists if the US didn’t meet his ever-escalating demands for handouts. He well knew the strategic position of Tangier, Morocco, as “the gateway to the Mediterranean,” and the high value placed on it by the international superpowers. On 17 February, a week after the Turkey appeasement suggestion from Rockwell to Nixon, another State Department missive came from the American Embassy in Rabat, Morocco: “US Policy Assessment for Morocco.” It was full of barely veiled threats as delivered from Hassan, e.g.:

Soviet influence has grown rapidly. . . .

US and Western economic and military aid have not been fully responsive to these concerns. . . .

Arab-Israel confrontation generates pressures on King Hassan . . . to align Morocco with Arab extremists. . . .

USSR is prepared to help King economically. . . .

Strategic importance and economic potential of Morocco warrant special effort to blunt Soviet drive. . . .

It wasn’t even subtle. Then it ended with the bottom line extortion demand from Hassan II, couched in “diplomatic” terms: “Provision of grant military assistance amounting to $57 million over next five years.” That works out to over $377 million in 2015 dollars.

Somebody was asking Hassan II to do something for which he was demanding a high price.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the world, Jim Dincalci withdrew the next day, 18 February 1969, from the New York Medical College Graduate School of Nursing—the school where CIA shock doctor Max Fink was conducting MK-ULTRA experiments. No reason is apparent for Dincalci’s withdrawal from the program. (Dincalci soon will join the Sea Org in Morocco, and will be involved in the disappearance of L. Ron Hubbard.)

Meanwhile, back in Corfu: The next day, 19 February, the London Times reported that Hubbard had set up “a limited company in Greece to carry on his enterprises,” but that “Foreign Minister Pipinelis had told a press conference that the government was examining their activities before deciding on their request to be allowed to set up offices on Greek soil.”

A local paper announced that students soon would be arriving from around the world. The Sea Org already had buildings purchased and were preparing them for setting up an Advanced Org to deliver the Clearing Course and OT Levels, and a Saint Hill organization to deliver the Saint Hill Special Briefing Course, which used all the recorded lectures Hubbard had given at Saint Hill in England. On 26 February, LRH wrote in the Apollo OODs, “We are now waiting for AO [Advanced Org] Greece customers which should be showing up . . . We won’t be here forever. When AO Greece is well established, we’ll be taking a cruise.”

They would be taking a cruise sooner than that; two ships from the Sixth Fleet of the US Navy were already en route through the Mediterranean to Corfu.

Meanwhile, back in the United States, attorney G. Gordon Liddy was making a deal in early March with Gerald Ford, House Minority Leader, for a favor. Liddy wanted to be hired into the Treasury Department, specifically into the position of Special Assistant to the Secretary of the Treasury, for Enforcement. That would put Liddy in the Executive Branch of the government, in a prime position to move him into the White House. Ford pulled some strings and made it happen. (Ford, who had served on the Warren Commission investigation into the assassination of John F. Kennedy, will go on to replace Richard Nixon after Watergate, the hoax, and will know about the CIA’s theft of the Scientology OT levels to start its “remote viewing” program.)

Around the same time, on 4 March 1969, Daniel Ellsberg was “sworn in at the Rand Washington office as a top secret courier.” He was given “two big packages of double-wrapped volumes” that filled “two large briefcases—courier pouches, with flaps and combination locks.” This was the McNamara study that will become the “Pentagon Papers.” Rand president Harry Rowen (a.k.a. Henry Rowen, Henry S. Rowen) told Ellsberg on the phone that when he got back to Santa Monica, he was to put the study in his own safe, and that no one, including the security officers at Rand, were to be allowed to know that the study is there. Ri-i-i-i-ght.

Two days later, on Thursday, 6 March 1969, two ships of the US Sixth Fleet arrived in Corfu: the Fremont and the Grand County.

A task force arrived off Corfu and a detachment of Marines set up sentry posts around the berths occupied by the Sea Org ships, apparently in order to prevent US Navy personnel from coming into contact with Scientologists. “Somehow it seemed,” said Major Forte, “that this was a carefully planned operation designed to bring forcibly home to the authorities the grave danger of contamination by this undesirable cult.”

Gee, you think? The men on the ships had been “briefed” that the Sea Org ships were “full of draft dodgers, marijuana smokers, free love, hypnotism.”

Meanwhile, on the other side of the world, on the same day that the Navy ships arrived in Corfu, a man named Robert Cushman was nominated as Deputy Director of the CIA, to serve directly with Richard Helms. In 1950, Cushman had shared an office in the CIA with E. Howard Hunt. Cushman and Hunt also had worked together in 1960, when Cushman had been Nixon’s “military aide” in a plot to overthrow Castro, and when Vernon Walters also was an aide to Nixon, as an interpreter. (Cushman soon will supply Hunt and Liddy with everything they need to carry out the first operation in Watergate, the hoax, and to set up a “get out of jail free” card for Ellsberg. Cushman then will be replaced by Vernon Walters as Deputy Director of the CIA for the rest of the hoax operations, when L. Ron Hubbard disappears.)

It was all being set into motion.

On 18 March 1969, the Nomarch of Corfu issued an order that L. Ron Hubbard and the Sea Org had 24 hours to leave Greece.

On the same day, “Hana Eltringham321 and 13 other Sea Org members left the Apollo and arrived at AOLA [Advanced Org Los Angeles], with the mission to effectively replace the top administrative personnel of the org.” (Eltringham, one of the Commonwealth infiltrators, will be the Commanding Officer of AOLA at crucial times over the next few years, allowing both Ingo Swann and Hal Puthoff to slip past Hubbard’s emphatic injunctions forbidding the upper levels to intelligence operatives. She later will leave Scientology and become one of the main harpies spewing venom about it, a favored “source” for Hubbard-haters Russell Miller and the admitted British intelligence operative Chris Owen.)

The next day, 19 March, the Sea Org ships left Corfu.

The CIA, the prissy little Forte roach, the Five Eyes, and the Islamic Cult of the Caliphate fanatics must have felt a great sense of conquest, having shut down Hubbard’s attempt to set up a new Advanced Org (AO) and new Saint Hill (SH) org. As usual, though, they forgot who they were dealing with; two days later an announcement went out in Greece and around the world:

WE ARE NOT OPENING THE NEW AO – SH IN GREECE BUT IN DENMARK

THE WHOLE NEW ORGANIZATION IS ALREADY TRANSFERRED TO COPENHAGEN, DENMARK SO

GO NOW DIRECT TO

SCIENTOLOGY ORGANIZATION

DENMARK HOVEDVAGTSGADE 6 1103 COPENHAGEN TELEX: 20515075

After a trip through the Mediterranean and brief stops at Cagliari, Sardinia, and Cadiz, Spain, for fuel and supplies, The Sea Org ships sailed to the real Watergate, long known as “the gateway to the Mediterranean”: Tangier, Morocco.
