Heads up readers –
Alleged former scientologist (now Catholic), “Anonymous” group activist, and researcher R.M. Seibert – aka Anonlover and Heidi McAvoy – requested the above titled paper from the CIA, raised a “crowd fund” to pay for the report and is currently awaiting delivery.
Note: Seibert had originally requested an FOIA listing in 2015 – which someone has archived here and marked as “Roxanne Seibert”. On page 2, just below the first highlighted area, is the report by Ingo Swann.
At the muckrock page1 about this Ingo Swann paper, if you look over the visible correspondence back and forth between Seibert and the CIA that occurred between February 17 and March 30 of 2017, you will note that the CIA says in its payment demand letter of March 30, that it had released this to others numerous times already. No one, as far as I know, has made this particular report available to internet researchers, and judging from the charges at 10 cents a page over and above the first 100 free, this report is clearly a significant body of research numbering at least 220 pages.
Important note: Seibert has “embargoed” her muckrock request to keep it hidden (in reaction to my post) which is why the above link is no longer working. I would suggest that you check it though occasionally, in case she puts it back again.
On occasion, Seibert has been known to not want documents that she requests and receives to be that easily known to most people (or easily accessed by them) because she prefers to funnel cherry-picked aspects to journalist Tony Ortega. Such was the case with the FDA documents, as just one example.
When I found the FDA documents at muckrock and began pulling out and posting about ones of interest to me, she actually contacted me and was upset that I had done so, at which point then I became aware that she was the R.M. Seibert who had requested these documents. She implied that I shouldn’t be writing about them because she had “got them for Ortega.” What that was really about, in my opinion, was that I wasn’t writing about these documents from the “approved” tribal narrative perspective that she and others had going about scientology.
To my knowledge, when Ortega began pulling out certain documents from this FDA collection and basing articles on them, he never once actually provided a direct route for people to see and peruse the entire document collection themselves – essentially cutting people off from being able to see and judge the collections for themselves.
This kind of attempt to prevent or obfuscate full public access of documents in an effort to create “scoops” for a journalist is something that I find abhorrent.
Any kind of childish “mine” crap about important to everyone documents simply has to stop, and I hope Seibert will consider this a professional courtesy reminder that she quit mixing research with favoritism and hobby-horsing. Complete documents or collections of documents should not be made into some sort of popularity game, doled out only to the favored as if they are some sort of currency from a 7th graders clique.
Everyone should keep an eye on her Muckrock account and see if she actually provides the document for the world to see.
If she doesn’t provide it, I will get it myself and Mike will upload it to the Internet Archive so it will be a PERMANENT record that everyone will be able to access.
Note: This report by Ingo was actually published by the U.S. Joint Publications Research Service, identified as: JPRS L/5022-2. There is one website that provides access to the entire JPRS archive, but it is behind a pay-wall. If someone already has access to that site, however, they should be able to get a digital copy of the report. If you do that, please do let me know in the comments section.
UPDATE – Mike McClaughry has now joined muckrock and filed his own request for that document as Roxanne does not intend to make the document available to people unless Tony Ortega doesn’t want it. She wrote at facebook: “When these dox come in, Tony will get the first shot at reporting on them. If he passes, then I will share them publicly like I always do.”
