Since some of the materials which describe the $cientology cult could be considered to be copywritten materials, I have censored myself and The Skeptic Tank by deleting any and all possible text files which describes the cult's hidden mythologies. I have elected to quote just a bit of the questionable text according to the "Fair Use" legal findings afforded to those who report. - Fredric L.

Marine Corps CH-53E helicopters, carrying the TRAP (Tactical Recovery of Aircraft and Personnel) team, and USMC AH-1 Cobra Gunships flying cover. As I recall, there were 3 of each. Backing up the actual rescue team were a flight of 4 USMC AV-8B Harriers, ready to provide additional suppressive close air support. Thus, the first *three* echelons of the rescue were USMC, not Air Farce^H^H^H^H^HForce. Additional levels of air support, including USAF, were in the air as a contingency force. However, *all* pilots *directly* involved in the rescue were U. S. Marines. If it was, indeed, an Air Force pilot, posting ....
