  It may be deemed necessary for all the DC Staff who
  could be pulled in for questioning to suddenly leave.

  target 2 weeks on this. As assigned.

  2. US D1 SEUS SEC is to work up an ED or some such
  official type proclamation entitled "Sabbatical Leaves." 
  This can be worked out with both D/NAT'L
  SEC US B1 and DDG US. The above shall basically
  state that about 10 GO personnel shall be chosen
  for Sabbatical leaves. This shall start with the 
  Founding Church in Washington DC. This is being 
  done as an award for upstats who consistently
  produce well, and as an experiment to see what an energetic
  staff member will do on his own if given 3 to 6 months
  to travel and study and use scn tech. The rules are


  the persons are to:
  1) To observe covertly and to not communicate to a
  fellow Scngist during this time
  2) They are to spend at least some of this time in
  "retreat" where they are to study their choice of

  This project is called "Ten Talents"  after the
  biblical tale. A quote should be gotten from the bible
  and put into the ED.  US B1 SEUS SEC

  3.  When the above Ed is completed, it should be sent
  to all GO DC staff wherever needed. It should appear
  real to those whom it does not affect.  US B1 SEUS SEC

  4. US B1 SEUS SEC is to work out the comm the pertinent
  persons are to give on this to their relatives or fellow
  staff. This should be done ahead of time A.S.A.P so
  that when and if persons have "to go" it will not
  cause any flaps or PTS situations. "All" should be
  ready to leave at any time. US B1 SEC

  5. US B1 SEC is to ensure that all concerned are
  ready to leave at any time and that all personal cycles
  finances, 2D, bills, are completely up to PT and
  there are no PTPs or stops to immediate departure.

  6. US B1 SEUS SEC is to see AG DC keeps all staff
  actions written up to PT and that machinery exists,
  to as best as possible, take over, for each person
  (including the AG) if this action were needed to be
  done. This should be worked out in liason with DDG US and



  7) US B1 SEUS SEC is to immediately do up a confidential
  CS-W for "set-aside" finances for this project. This is for
  seven or eight people so the amount should be about
  $10,000 for starters. Any help needed on this can come
  from DDG US or DG US. These finances should be given
  to AG DC to hold in case this actions is implemented.

  8) SEUS SEC B1 is to ensure that the "need to know"
  is strictly followed on this project. No communicators
  are to know. The Need to Know is limited to DG US;
  SEC US; any US DG's that must know are told by DG US;
  and those DG staff that this concerns.

  9) SEUS SEC US B1 is to set up an "early warning" system
  whereby he or DG US can be notified immediately with
  any info needed to decide to put 'Failsafe' into action.

  10. A "safehouse" or "safehouse area" should be chosen
  in an out of the way place, like a ski resort - Dude ranch -
  farm - Canada - Mexico - etc., This "place" should be
  investigated to ensure it can be used anytime of the
  year by people just "showing up". This "safe
  house" is for Sabbaticals to go till it is shown
  one way or another that they must stay away or
  come back. SEUS SEC US B1

  11. A cover story as to why "they" all went there; without
  the Church knowing it, must be worked out - as this
  breaks Sabbatical rules. SEUS SEC US B1

  12. Seven safe different places (or as many as needed)
  must be worked out, where the Sabbaticals will go if
  they must extend their leave. One for each person.


  13. Secure comm lines, codes, etc., must be worked out
  for this "safe house" are in  #10, and each different
  place in #12 above. This must be done before any Sabbaticals
  are taken. SEUS SEC US B1

  14. The entire DC Org should be alerted in some way
  to this Sabbatical "cover story". And if needed to be 
  implemented the DC Org should be informed of this 
  "award for" those concerned. (The one, two - 10 Talent
  analogy should be used). This is to take all the
  mystery off the line and make it no surprise as well as
  handling any testimony in court by any staff. SEUS SEC US B1

  15. When all of the above actions are worked out
  to the DG I/DG US's satisfaction, a chock list, code
  words, etc., are to be worked out so that if deemed
  necessary the Sabbaticals will go off like clockwork.

  16. Upon completion of targets 1-15, D/NAT'L SEC is
  to fly to DC on mission. His MO's will be the briefing
  and any necessary drilling to be done to prepare the
  "persons" for their "Sabbaticals" if necessary to implement.
  MOs to be written by SEUS SEC US B1 and approved by DG I US
  and DG US. SEUS SEC US B1.
