Scientology spokesman confirms South Park story of the evil lord Xenu

I’m not too familiar with Britian’s The Register, but they’ve got a story reporting that a Scientology spokesman has confirmed, after years of official denial, that “mankind’s problems stem from brainwashed alien soul remnants created millions of years ago by genocidal alien overlord Xenu.”

The news site reports:

In an interview with KESQ News Channel 3, Scientology spokesman Tommy Davis was quizzed over the Xenu story, which leaked papers show is revealed to senior Scientologists as part of their induction to “Operating Thetan Level III”. Davis at first denied the story, as he had done in the past.

However, when the KESQ reporter read from a book written by Scientology founder L Ron Hubbard which refers to the Xenu story, Davis admitted that the story is authentic, albeit confidential and restricted. He then laid into KESQ reporter Nathan Baca, accusing him of “forwarding an agenda of hate”.

The Xenu story has previously been routinely denied by senior Scientologists, including actor Tom Cruise (story here). The Church of Scientology has long used copyright and trade secrecy laws in legal actions designed to suppress the tale.

According to anti-Scientology protest group Anonymous, a leaked recording shows Scientology founder Hubbard giving a lecture on OT III. A handwritten document summarising the Xenu story, in Hubbard’s own handwriting, has also turned up, it adds.

I don’t read as much of an admission into the KESQ transcript. Thoughts?
