TIME AND REPORTS
(Originally an LRH OODs item of 7 April 1970.)
An Intelligence report can be totally correct. But if its TIME is not included it can also be totally wrong.
Example: Sample report says “Whites are being shot down in West African ports.” So we conclude we better not enter any. Then we learn the time of the report—1960! Some difference!
Boy, when you make a report, always put in WHEN. And before you accept one be sure there’s a WHEN attached.
Our scheduling of port visits was going all awry because a report that was really old was being accepted as current!
