Scientology & the CIA

Espionage History Archive

This presentation was read by Aleksandr Leonidovich Dvorkin, president of the Irinaeus of Lyons Center for Religious Research Studies, on January 26th, 2016, at a conference run by the Orthodox St. Tikhon University for the Humanities. (Translator’s note: While we wouldn’t claim that the Church of Scientology is an integral element of the US Intelligence Community, Dvorkin’s lecture is an excellent expose of the nexus between the Western power structure, its intelligence apparatus and dangerous cults).


The topic of Scientology’s connection to the CIA became commonplace long ago. It’s mentioned in a mass of articles, interviews, and television programs. But when I referred to this in passing during a conversation with one journalist several months ago, he took interest: do I have irrefutable evidence of or clues to this connection? Could I, so to say, point to a “smoking gun?”

  1. You might also want to look into the connection between Scientology and its founder L Ron Hubbard and the OTO. Not to bash the OTO, though there is a significant connection between these two, at least as relevant as it is to the CIA.

  2. This is a good article, but it’s extremely doubtful that Scientology is controlling the CIA. It’s no secret now that the CIA has used(and still uses) all sorts of organizations, legal and otherwise. The CIA has used the Mafia since the CIA was the OSS in WWII and all through the decades since. It’s most likely the same here, with the CIA infiltrating and using aspects of Scientology when it’s of benefit to the Agency.
