I believe this to be contrived. I watched the entire fallout from that post of 11 April alleged to have been by Henry. At least up until mid-May, I saw no information from any Scientology contact stating that there had been a bomb threat during that time. Chris Miller did claim in an argument with Tony Sidaway sometime between April and July that there had been such a threat in France at a different time, but failed to produce evidence when pressed for it. There is no evidence from the time that there was any such bomb threat actually received at a Scientology building at a time consistent with the alleged threat of 11 April. It appears that such a threat has been back-read into the relevant files, or created in April and then kept under file for later use. We all know who among the Scientology operatives is capable, by temperament, by skill, and by access, of such an act. This is a monstrous frame-up. -- Mach's gut!
