which means 'miscelaneous - do script...'. So if Interaction is
following the lead of other scriping languages, your syntax would be
send "(expire #p\" & quote & "home:documents;index.html\" & quote &
")" to program "Interaction" with "miscdosc"

If so then the following will work
create a string containing the above script...
i.e. put "tell application" && quote & "Interaction" & quote & cr
etc. ... into tScript
the run the script using the following syntax
get Script(do, AppleScript, tScript)
I don't think FlameThrower has AppleScript support built in so if
you're using it you'll have to use Mark Lucas's AppleScript external
that is in one of the Wetware collections.
