Debbie and Wayne, if you're reading this, congratulations on getting OUT!!!! You'll soon find the outside world is a great place. I wish you all the best in rebuilding your lives.
Debbie was in the SP Room in early 2007. While I don't know what happened since, it sounds like she was eventually released from there and sent back to FSO, demoted onto some lower post.
That experience would certainly be more than enough of a reason to want to leave the cult. My guess is that that is what tipped the scales for her and that she decided to tell her husband about what is going on at the Int Base.
Also, DM's "management technology" that has been piloted on the Int Base has also been spreading into the lower units for several years now, particularly notably to ILO and Flag, so her husband has had some taste of it.
Debbie knew about the problems at Int for many years even before she ended up there herself -- Flag is where the replacement personnel for the Int Base have been "in training" for years on end now and she was made personally responsible for the success of that program. She had been told by DM that it wasn't just a man-up project like the shore story goes, but that it is a replacement for the current personnel at Int including the Int executives.
Then she got called to the Int Base herself in 2006, to end up in the SP Room herself within a few months. I would certainly think that first-hand experience being declared an SP and being put through gang-bang sec checks and the whole gamut of insanity in the SP Room should be enough of a reason to tip the scales for anyone. The shock of that experience is probably even worse if you come from outside the Int Base, like Debbie did, and have not had several years of "getting used to" things being that insane.
She was a successful CO FSO for some 15 years and ended up in the SP Room as a "thanks" for that. And then there is the matter of what she may have had to do over the years to remain a successful CO of the biggest service org in Scientology for that long under DM regime...
Need I say more?
