    One of the most nefarious of the cult's front groups (the other is Narconon).

    Quote from above link -- which is addressed specifically in Wright's book:

    "To take [a] person, and turn them into a killing machine, against their will or have them do things that are against their nature, you need something behind that. Psychiatrists employ drugs and conditioning techniques in order to change people from what they would normally be, into killing machines," added Figueroa. He also says that the leader of al-Qaeda, Osama bin Laden got the idea to form the terrorist group from his second in command, Ayman al-Zawahiri in 1988. Then 13 years later, 19 terrorists hijacked four U.S. commercial airliners, crashing two into the World Trade Center towers, one into the The Pentagon and one into a field in Pennsylvania. The attacks killed nearly 3,000 people.

      ...any time you run a google search on any "illicit" drug you stand a very good chance of winding up at Narconon (which is not Narcotics Anonymous; they chose that name for maximum confusion.)

      That's because they have literally hundreds of registered domain names all pointing at each other.

      America, we can do better than this...
