Re: Marty Rathbun's letter to Tom Cruise's attorney.. Here we have a post by "Rae" from ESMB which seems to corroborate some of what Marty implies: "As far as Tom's "abuses"...I was quite close to many people who worked in Tom's organization before the big 2004 bust.(could have been 2005) I was at Flag when it was going down. I never saw anything like it EVER...all these great Scientologists I personally knew that used to work for Tom were forced to Flag for endless sec checks and conditions.(at their expense of course) They were told that THEY were responsible for all kinds of crap from leaks on Tom's whereabouts to not handling his children "properly" to whatever. Tom's organization was torn apart. People who had worked with him for years were fired, forced to endure horrible wrong indications, almost being declared, humiliation..and the person behind it was Slappy himself. He was personally on the cycle from start to finish. I can't go into more detail here but this is fact. Perhaps that's what Marty is referring to. I was stunned and sickened by what was happening. My thought at the time was that I'd never seen public Scientologists handled that way. It was as if they were in the SO at Int level answering directly to DM. I couldn't wrap my wits around DM being directly dictating what should or shouldn't happen in Tom's org. But that's exactly what went down."
