76. Obviously, psychiatrists and psychologists were evil because
their services competed with Scientology auditing. In a 1971 document
by Hubbard called "Confidential" (attached as Exhibit 11), he wrote:
"Policy is that we assign any case or upset in Scientology to past
damage and interference with the person by medicine or psychiatry. They
were sent to us after medicine or psychiatry had already destroyed them.
We cannot be blamed for psychiatric or medical failures. "By
continually repeating this, make the AMA, Nats [National Associations of
Mental Health], etc. very wary of using our name on these psychiatric
and medical failures. Both subjects are guilty and the statement is
demonstrably true. Use it often. Make it known to the enemy that this
is our policy as a restraint on their fetid imaginations: "Every time
you attack us we will disclose more records of your failures.'"
