Last December, I mentioned to Alexander Dvorkin an oddity I had noticed in the description of the US Intelligence Community Seal on the Office of the Director of National Intelligence’s website. Dr. Dvorkin included this fact in an article in Russian entitled “Scientology & the CIA” he presented in January at St. Tikhon’s Orthodox University in Moscow.[1. http://www.pravoslavie.ru/90753.html] Mark Hackard posted an English translation of the article on his “Espionage History Archive” … [Read more...] about Scientology, the CIA and Their Crash of Symbols
