DATA NEEDED BY OPS ON EACH LOCATED WHO
1. Standard ODC with time track and a brief, summarized, well-rounded
picture of a terminal. (Following #2, 3, 4, 5 & 6 are the key areas
data is needed)
2. Criminal background of terminal.
3. Financial involvements (inflow & outflow of money)
4. Legal involvements (summary of actions)
5. Terminal's main interests, personal habits, fears, vices and any
other items of interest.
6. Friends and enemies on the terminal's 1st Dynamic
Friends and enemies on the terminal's 2nd Dynamic
Groups that the terminal belongs to and any groups or terminals, who
are enemies of that group.
7. What the terminal considers valuable & is protecting
8. Simple org board the terminal is on, clearly noting his position and
his seniors and noteworthy juniors.
9. What persons have the power to fire terminal from the position he
10. Any rules or regulations that if broken would cause the terminal to
lose his job/position.
11. Any regulations concerning licenses that the terminal holds that
would cause him to lose his license if violated (i.e. law, medical,
12. Scandals, conflicts, disputes directly or indirectly connected to
13. Documents that show criminality of terminal (i.e. cheating on income
tax, discrediting data in personal letters, use of drugs, etc.)
Ops planning goes over all the data on the WHO that Ops research has
compiled and with all the data available on the WHO, plans out channels of
attack on the WHO that will effectively remove/restrain the WHO from his
position of power. Ops planning on a WHO is done using the data series,
target series, all Scientology tech applicable, and intelligence tech.
The following points should be followed in doing an operation:
1. Initially plan out at least 3 channels of attack with the data you
have at hand. Do not wait forever to getall data collected, but
also do not run Ops that would be dangerous without essential data.
Basically a brighter idea is needed with less data available. 3
channels being done instead of less is because there is a higher
percentage of getting results and also this will tend to confuse and
spin the WHO as there are 3 attacks instead of just one.
2. Continue to plan Ops utilizing feedback from completed Ops so that
the WHO has persistent attack on him and continual pressure. Do
consistent attack until the WHO is obliterated.
3. Stay away from harassment actions that are only for the sake of doing
channels or revenge. ie: Sending pizzas from every Pizza delivery
restaurant. These basically have been unsuccessful as they do not
achieve any real effective result, except for letting the WHO know
that he is under attack. There may be times when 50 pizzas every
being sent to a WHO would be effective, but this would be in such a
case where the WHO was restimulated heavily by seeing pizzas,
smelling pepperoni or seeing pizza delivery boys, etc.
4. Always include a way of getting feedback in an operation, so you know
what type of result you are getting and for further planning of
channels in those areas that give good results.
5. Ensure proper security is planned in an operation, ie: use of an
untraceable typewriter, paper without fingerprints, proper covers by
FSM's, etc. (See security write-up and security section data in hat
materials of Ops US hat checksheet)
6. Use the target series exactly to programme out an operation on a WHO.
Ensure the major target is based on a *real*, current situation and
is an achievable purpose.
7. Find out what the exact resources are for the area the Op will be
implemented in and what the capabilities are of your terminals
implementing the Op.
8. Keep the targets in an operation simple, yet complete.
9. Analyze properly the actual situation with the WHO and what the best
line of attack should be done by the GO as a whole. It may be
necessary to suggest that PR or Legal do some specific action as a
finishing off of the WHO. Never wait for another bureau to handle a
WHO, as Ops is responsible and has the capabilities to handle WHO's
totally without the other Bureaus in the GO. Liaison though is very
important with the various GO bureaus, specifically the Legal Branch
2 (attack area of Legal) and PR Branch 1 (attack area of PR).
10. A believable source must be provided in an operation, thereby
"filling the vacuum," so that Scientology isn't dubbed in as source
of the attack. A1 Ops are planned in such a way that they in no way
could be traced back to the Church.
11. Channels should be various and ever changing types of channel of
attack, rather than sticking to one type of Op, such as an anonymous
flyer that 3-P's a WHO.
12. Mentally follow-thru your plan and ensure all factors concerning
security and workability are taken into account. It is a good idea
to also take the enemy's viewpoint when working out your strategy in
Once the plan is fully targeted out, CSW with full complete data your
operation to the Dir Br1 US. When it is approved, then the Ops plan and
the applicable data is flowed to Ops execution part of the Ops section.
Ops execution implements the targeted-out approved operation. If an AGI
in the field is to receive the targeted plan or orders to do a part of the
operation then this is routed in the following manner:
Branch 1 Director US
DG I US
Ops mail line
OPS OFF US
The "Ops mail line" is a point where the Ops targets are mailed
directly on a confidential line directly to the Ops terminal in the
field. (See the attached Ops Write-up 1R and the attached write-up
of the US Ops Com-Lines)
Flexibility is important when doing a targeted out plan. An operation
should not be done robotically, as at times an Operation can be found to
be unworkable for any number of different reasons. As execution observes
the PT scenes of the Op and obtains feedback, it may be more applicable to
re-CSW new actions or alter targets because of threat of exposure of the
Execution gets the Operation implemented and acts as Ops programmes
officer, 8-Cing Ops units to get the necessary targets done and debugging
bogged targets. Execution works very close to planning in that the
necessary PT scene of the Op with feedback of the results is immediately
infoed to Ops planning, so new channels can be drawn up or revised as
Ops execution ensures that the stat and report lines are in from his Ops
units implementing the operation. (Ops Write-up 2R and 3 attached)
