On 28 November 1953, at 2 am, a man crashed through a closed
window and fell to his death from the 10th floor of the Statler Hotel in New
York City. He was identified as Frank Olson, a bacteriologist with the US Army
Research Center at Fort Detrick, Maryland. He had fallen from a room he shared
with another scientist, Robert Lashbrook. It was ruled a suicide.

years later, in 1975, William Colby, then CIA director, declassified documents
that changed the complexion of the case. It was revealed that Olson had
actually been an undercover CIA operative at Fort Detrick, and that one week
prior to his death, he had been drinking Cointreau at a high-level meeting with
scientists at Deep Creek Lodge in rural Maryland. The Cointreau was laced with
a large dose of LSD administered by his CIA boss, Sidney Gottlieb. He was then
sent to New York with Lashbrook, also with the CIA, to see a psychiatrist
because the LSD had induced a psychosis.

was also revealed that Olson had been part of the top secret CIA program that
was known as Project MK-ULTRA, exploring the use of chemicals and drugs for
purposes of mind control, and bacteriological agents for covert assassination.
Olson had been working on ways to deliver anthrax in aerosol form, for use as a
weapon. New evidence that came to light, through the persistent efforts of
Olson’s son Eric, made the suicide ruling highly suspect.

turned out that Olson had been labelled a security risk by British intelligence
after getting upset witnessing human experimentation on a trip to Frankfurt,
Germany the previous summer. Eric Olson now believes that his father was
drugged and then murdered to make sure that he didn’t reveal the secrets of the
MK-ULTRA project. Following the 1975 revelations, the government must have felt
more than a little guilt about the affair because Olson’s family was given a 17
minute audience with US President Ford, who apologised to them, and they were
awarded damages in the amount of $750,000.

Controlling Human Behaviour

MK-ULTRA program was instituted on 13 April 1953 by CIA Director Allen Dulles,
ostensibly to counter the brainwashing techniques of American prisoners being
held by the North Koreans during the Korean War, and to duplicate those
techniques on enemy prisoners, i.e. the creation of “Manchurian Candidates.”
This was the claim used to obtain funding for the project. However, the
Prisoner of War brainwashing program was just the tip of the iceberg, and the
CIA-sponsored experiments ventured far and wide into areas of Mind Control
under the aegis of MK-ULTRA that had little or nothing to do with methods of

Colby revelations were part of a sweeping investigation of the CIA in January
1975 by the “Commission on CIA Activities Within the United States,” chaired by
Vice-President Nelson Rockefeller. The subsequent June 1975 Report to the
President said: “The drug program was part of a much larger CIA program to
study possible means for controlling human behaviour. Other studies explored
the effects of radiation, electric-shock, psychology, psychiatry, sociology and
harassment substances.”

though the program got off to a rocky start with the Olson affair, it recovered
quickly and became an umbrella project with 149 sub-projects. The overall
guiding principal was succinctly stated in an internal CIA memo dated January
1952: “Can we get control of an individual to the point where he will do our
bidding against his will and even against fundamental laws of nature such as

drug program came under the aegis of the Chemical Division of the Technical Services
Staff headed up by Sidney Gottlieb from 1951 to 1956. Gottlieb was a highly
intelligent eccentric who drank goat’s milk, enjoyed folk-dancing, and raised
Christmas trees on his farm outside Washington.

Agency funded LSD research programs at major medical centres and universities
including Boston Psychopathic, Mt. Sinai Hospital at Columbia University,
University of Illinois Medical School, University of Oklahoma and others. The
funding was carried out secretly through the Josiah Macy Foundation, and the
Geschickter Fund for Medical Research in Washington, D.C. The CIA claimed the
secrecy was necessary to keep it from the Russians, but we have already seen
that it was part of much larger project to learn how to control human behaviour
in general, so this is not credible.

told Dr. Harold Abramson at Mt. Sinai (who just happened to be the psychiatrist
that Olson was supposed to see!) that he wanted “operationally pertinent
materials [about]: a. Disturbance of Memory; b. Discrediting by Aberrant
Behaviour; c. Alteration of Sex Patterns; d. Eliciting of Information; e.
Suggestibility; f. Creation of Dependence.” That sounds like pretty deep stuff
for the spy game. They were really afraid of public reaction and congressional
condemnation, especially since the CIA charter did not allow domestic
operations, and certainly prohibited experimentation on US citizens.

callousness of the research is best exemplified by the CIA-funded work of Dr.
Harris Isbell, the Director of the Addiction Research Center in Lexington,
Kentucky. The drug addict hospital inmates, who were mostly black, were
encouraged to volunteer for LSD research in return for hard drugs of their
choice or time off their sentences. In most cases, they were given pure
morphine or heroin. At one point Isbell kept seven men on LSD for 77 straight
days. Many others were on it for up to 42 days.

extended LSD usage, John Marks in his landmark book The Search for the
Manchurian Candidate: The CIA and Mind Control
 says about writer Hunter
S. Thompson (recently deceased) that he “frightened his readers with accounts
of drug (LSD) binges lasting a few days, during which Thompson felt his brain
boiling away in the sun, his nerves wrapping around enormous barbed wire forts,
and his remaining faculties reduced to their reptilian antecedents.” The recent
movie The Rum Diary, starring Johnny Depp, based on the
autobiographical book by Hunter S. Thompson, presents an imaginative
re-enactment of his LSD adventures.

The CIA Turns On the Counter-Culture

satisfied with university research, Gottlieb recruited New York narcotics agent
George White to distribute LSD surreptitiously to the “borderline underworld.”
Operating through safe houses in Greenwich Village, Haight-Ashbury and Marin
County, White gave doses to prostitutes, pimps, drug addicts and other
“marginal people” and then observed the results and reported to Gottlieb.

Marks says they were people “who would be powerless to seek any sort of revenge
if they ever found out what the CIA had done to them. In addition to their
being unlikely whistle-blowers, such people lived in a world where an unwitting
dose of some drug… was an occupational hazard anyway.”

White started using it randomly all over New York and San Francisco. Regarding
the results, Marks says, “The MKULTRA scientists reaped little but disaster,
mischief, and disappointment from their efforts to use LSD as a miracle weapon
against the minds of their opponents.” Yet, they continued this program for 10
years until 1963.

since the CIA had pretty much cornered the market on LSD internationally,
buying up all the product of Sandoz and Eli Lilly, the spread of the drug to
the counter-culture was through the Agency. Timothy Leary, Ken Kesey, Allen
Ginsburg and Tom Wolfe were first “turned on” thanks to the CIA, and that’s how
the “flower children” became psychedelic.

the LSD experiments may have been more successful than Marks realised. They
were carefully noting the precise effects on brain chemistry, and in the six
areas that Gottlieb was concerned with: memory disturbance, aberrant behaviour,
altered sexual patterns, eliciting information, suggestibility and creation of
dependence. This became evident when they started using LSD as an adjunct in
hypnotic and electronic experiments.

Re-Patterning the Brain

the most notorious and nefarious MK-ULTRA sub-project was carried out at the
Allan Memorial Institute in Montreal, Canada under the directorship of Dr.
Donald Ewen Cameron, an American from Albany, New York. Cameron had trained at
the Royal Mental Hospital in Glasgow, Scotland, under eugenicist Sir David
Henderson, and founded the Canadian branch of the World Federation for Mental
Health. At various times, he was elected president of the Canadian, American,
and World psychiatric associations. In other words, Cameron was no renegade but
had the full faith and endorsement of the world psychiatric establishment.

CIA wanted Cameron to “depattern” the contents of the brain to make it
receptive to new patterning. David Remnick in a Washington Post article
on 28 July 1985 said, “The…. heart of the laboratory was the Grid Room…. The
subject was strapped into a chair involuntarily, by force, his head bristling
with electrodes and transducers. Any resistance was met with a paralysing dose
of curare. The subject’s brainwaves were beamed to a nearby reception room
crammed with voice analysers, a wire recorder and radio receivers cobbled
together… The systematic annihilation or ‘depatterning’ of a subject’s mind and
memory was accomplished with overdoses of LSD, barbiturate sleep for 65 days at
a stretch and ECT shocks at 75 times the recommended dosage. Psychic driving,
the repetition of a recorded message for 16 hours a day, programmed the empty
mind. Fragile patients referred to Allan Memorial for help were thus turned
into carbuncular jellyfish.”

Chaitkin in his essay, ‘British Psychiatry: From Eugenics to Assassination’,
says: “Patients lost all or part of their memories, and some lost the ability
to control their bodily functions and to speak. At least one patient was
reduced almost to a vegetable; then Cameron had the cognitive centres of her
brain surgically cut apart, while keeping her alive. Some subjects were
deposited permanently in institutions for the hopelessly insane.”

CIA funded these horrors through a front called “The Society for the
Investigation of Human Ecology.” Other supporters of the Allan Institute were
the Rockefeller Foundation, the Geschickter Foundation, and the Canadian

Cameron’s work, Wikipedia says: “Naomi Klein states, in her book The
Shock Doctrine,
 that Cameron’s research and his contribution to the
MKUltra project was actually not about mind control and brainwashing, but ‘to
design a scientifically based system for extracting information from “resistant
sources.” In other words, torture’. And citing a book from Alfred W.
McCoy it further says that ‘Stripped of its bizarre excesses, Cameron’s
experiments, building upon Donald O. Hebb’s earlier breakthrough, laid the
scientific foundation for the CIA’s two-stage psychological torture method’.”
This method was codified in the infamous “KUBARK Counterintelligence
Interrogation Manual” published by the CIA in July 1963, and in the Human
Resources Exploitation Training Manual – 1983 
that was used in CIA
training courses in Latin American countries up until 1987. These manuals
describe methods of psychological torture, far more potent than physical
torture, to elicit information from “resistant sources.”

An Orwellian Nightmare

one would expect, the technologies now available to the mind-controllers have
zoomed off the chart to the point where George Orwell’s world of
omni-surveillance now seems almost quaint. Of course, it is true that 1984 was
28 years ago. But even as far back as 1970, US congressman James Scheur was
able to say, “As a result of spinoffs from medical, military aerospace and
industrial research, we are now in the process of developing devices and
products capable of controlling violent mobs without injury. We can
tranquillise, impede, immobilise, harass, shock, upset, stupefy, nauseate,
chill, temporarily blind, deafen or just plain scare the wits out of anyone the
police have a proper need to control and restrain.”

brief survey of some of the scariest products known to be in the arsenal of the
secretive alphabet agencies arrayed against John Q. Public are such devices as
the Neurophone, patented by Dr. Patrick Flanagan in 1968. It converts sound to
electrical impulses which can be delivered from satellites. When aimed at
individuals, the impulses travel directly to the brain where the sounds are
re-assembled and appear to be voices inside the head, which can be perceived as
coming from God, or telepathic aliens, or whatever. Or the sounds can come out
of a turned-off TV or radio. Through software, the device can mimic anyone’s
voice and translate into any language.

is believed that the CIA, DIA, NSA et al use the Neurophone to deliver threats
and propaganda to selected targets, or just to torment someone they don’t like.
One can imagine the possibilities. Could this explain some of the killings by
“psychopaths” who say they were instructed by God, such as Mark David Chapman,
David Berkowitz, or Sirhan Sirhan? If they had been previously evaluated
through sophisticated personality assessments and groomed by LSD or hypnosis,
such voices could easily tip the balance and convince them to kill.

all heard about the “Thought Police” and laughed because it seemed so
implausible. Well, the joke is on us. Brain scanning technology is now
well-advanced. In 1974, Lawrence Pinneo, a neurophysiologist and electronic
engineer with the Stanford Research Institute succeeded in correlating brain
wave patterns from EEGs with specific words. In 1994, the brain wave patterns
of 40 subjects were officially correlated with both spoken words and silent
thought at the University of Missouri. It is believed that US intelligence
agencies now have a brain wave vocabulary of over 60,000 words in most common

waves constitute a magnetic field around the head (the aura), each person
having a unique, identifiable electromagnetic signature which becomes visible
through Kirlian photography, and these fields can be monitored by satellites. The
translated results are then fed back to ground-side super computers at speeds
of up to 20 gigabytes/second. Neurophone messages can then be beamed to
selected individuals based on their thoughts. It is believed that about one
million people around the globe are now monitored on a regular basis. As these
numbers increase, as they certainly will, to include most educated and
important people in the world, the New World Order will definitely have

Australian writer Paul Baird has observed, “no-one will ever be able to even
think about expressing an opinion contrary to those forced on us by the New
World Order. There will literally be no intellectual property that cannot be
stolen, no writing that cannot be censored, no thought that cannot be suppressed
(by the most oppressive/invasive means).” Baird also claims that
ex-military/intelligence whistle-blowers have reported that experiments in
controlling voters with these techniques have been tried in several foreign
countries. So much for democracy.

technologies, such as microwave bombardment to confuse and disorient field
personnel, microchip implantation, silently delivered acoustical subliminal
messages, widespread population control through psychiatric drugs, and extreme
close-up satellite-based viewing able to read documents indoors, are all
well-developed and in use by military and intelligence agencies. This doesn’t
even address the monitoring of overt spoken and written material. Under Project
ECHELON, the NSA monitors every call, fax, e-mail and computer data message in
and out of the US, Canada and several other countries. Their computers then
search for key words and phrases. Anything or anyone of interest draws the
attention of agency operatives, who can then commence surveillance operations
by the NSA or other intelligence agencies.

Novel Capabilities

conclude with a chilling vision of the future from the US Air Force Scientific
Advisory Board. It is from New World Vistas of Air and Space Power for
the 21st Century

to the mid-21st century, there will be a virtual explosion of knowledge in the
field of neuroscience. We will have achieved a clear understanding of how the
human brain works, how it really controls the various functions of the body,
and how it can be manipulated (both positively and negatively). One can
envision the development of electromagnetic energy sources, the output of which
can be pulsed, shaped, and focused, that can couple with the human body in a
fashion that will allow one to prevent voluntary muscular movements, control
emotions (and thus actions), produce sleep, transmit suggestions, interfere
with both short-term and long-term memory, produce an experience set, and
delete an experience set. This will open the door for the development of some
novel capabilities that can be used in armed conflict, in terrorist/hostage
situations, and in training…”

based on the past clandestine abuses of MK-ULTRA reviewed above, one can
predict with relative certainty that these capabilities will be used on
civilians, with or without their knowledge or acquiescence.
