Pitcairn victims of child sex abuse win compensation

October 17, 2008 § Leave a comment

Pitcairn victims of child sex abuse win compensation Afua Hirsch, legal affairs correspondent The Guardian,  10/10/08 Victims of child sex abuse on Pitcairn island, the remote British outpost in the South Pacific, will receive compensation from the British government, the Foreign Office announced yesterday. The move comes after victims of the abuse, which first emerged in 1999 as a widespread problem on Pitcairn going back to the late 1950s and involving the rape and sexual abuse of girls as young as seven, stepped up their campaign for compensation. The women, now aged in their mid-20s to late-50s, earlier this year threatened a class action and instructed a New Zealand QC to represent them. In what is effectively a U-turn for the British government, which initially refused to meet demands for compensation, the new scheme will now compensate victims of abuse from 1961 onwards on the condition that they “renounce any and all potential, existing or future claims or cases against the United Kingdom”. The scheme brings the treatment of women from Pitcairn in line with rape victims in the UK, enabling them to potentially claim up to £44,000 compensation depending on the severity of their physical and psychological injuries. In a written statement, Gillian Merron, the Foreign Office minister for overseas territories, said: “What happened to these women was terrible and no amount of money will take that pain away. But I hope this will give them some recognition of their suffering. This is a significant step and it is the right thing to do.”….Although nine women testified to the police, a further 17 refused to testify in court and there have long been concerns that the Pitcairn community as a whole has failed to condemn the abuse, with some islanders reportedly saying the incidents form part of a misunderstood culture of “breaking in” young girls….Last week the Guardian reported on a number of cases where adult victims of child abuse felt mistreated by CICA, which had attempted to dismiss their claims as “consensual”, despite evidence of their rape or sexual abuse as children. http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2008/oct/10/law-foreignpolicy

Critique of the Goodman study

October 6, 2008 § Leave a comment

Overview of what occurred after I requested a review of Characteristics and Sources of
Allegations of Ritualistic child abuse by Dr. Gail Goodman, Phillip Shaver, and Bette Bottoms – Diana Napolis, M.A.

In December 2007 I reviewed the pivotal research study .Characteristics and Sources of Allegations of Ritualistic Child Abuse,. by UC Davis. Dr. Gail Goodman, Dr. Phillip Shaver, and Bette Bottoms, which had been funded by the National Center on Child Abuse and Neglect in 1994. This body of work has been used throughout the United States in attempts to prove that the scientific community found no evidence to support the belief that satanic ritual cult abuse of children was occurring in the United States except in very rare instances. Regardless of the conclusions reached, it appears that there was substantial and persuasive evidence provided to the researchers which indicated that ritual abuse was occurring on a grand scale, despite what appears to have been repeated attempts made to minimize and disguise these findings.

It will be difficult to understand my critique without accessing Dr. Goodman’s original study and the 1996 article titled, “An Analysis of Ritualistic and Religion-Related Child Abuse Allegations” by these same authors, so I urge others to download this material. In an article published in the New York Times titled, .Proof Lacking for Ritual Abuse by Satanists,” by Daniel Goleman, he quoted Dr. Gail Goodman’s representations of this  study:
“In a survey of more than 11,000 psychiatric and police workers throughout the country, conducted for the National Center on Child Abuse and Neglect, researchers found more than 12,000 accusations of group cult sexual abuse based on satanic ritual, but not one that investigators had been able to substantiate. “ This is a false representation about what this study actually revealed. The researchers did not receive anywhere near that high of a return rate – it was actually less than 2000 reports which were examined, which means there was an intentional and blatant attempt to misrepresent their findings in this news article. It was discovered that this propaganda is posted on numerous web sites in efforts to prove that satanic crime does  not occur.

On pg. 46 of .Characteristics and Sources of Allegations of Ritualistic Child Abuse,. Dr. Goodman also wrote: “One respondent cited as evidence the ritual abuse behavior checklist – a dubious diagnostic checklist which includes many behaviors common to childhood.” (Gould, 1986). Due to that statement, I have posted a copy of Dr. Catherine Gould’s checklist on my web site, and as the reader will see, these are clearly abnormal behaviors of children that are being described and there is nothing dubious about it.
Dr. Goodman concluded by stating: Our research leads us to believe that there are many more children being abused in the name of God than in the name of Satan.. I found that an odd and inappropriate remark to make given the fact that Dr. Goodman received more reports of ritual abuse than she received about religion-based abuse. In order to make her case Dr Goodman used as her examples cases of child abuse or murder which were clearly committed by Christians who were mentally ill, not mainstream Christians, therefore I believe it was inappropriate to suggest that these crimes were committed in the name of God. The belief systems of mainstream Christianity do not condone criminal or aberrant behavior but the belief systems of Satanists most certainly do and the ritual abuse crimes she was reviewing were in line with those satanic beliefs. Therefore, it is obvious that there is much more serious crime committed by satanists in the name of Satan. Further, cases of Christian medical neglect are not equivalent in severity to ritual abuse therefore I believe it was inappropriate for these academics to argue against the enactment of ritual abuse laws based on these arguments.

As further evidence which supports my opinion that there were purposeful attempts to distort the facts, after the American Psychological Association (APA) gave Dr. Goodman an award for Distinguished Professional Contributions to Applied Research in 2005, Dr. Goodman’s response was published in the American Psychologist, November 2005 issue, in an article entitled Wailing Babies in her Wake. She stated in reference to this study:
“Our survey revealed that there was essentially no hard evidence of organized, child abusing, satanic cults that had infiltrated preschools or the FBI or that had kidnapped or slain babies. In contrast there was much indirect evidence of clinical induction of false memories and plentiful evidence of religion-related abuse, including sexual abuse by Catholic priests. Although much of my research indicates that children can have largely accurate memories and can resist strong suggestions, they can, in contrast (as indicated by the dramatic examples of ritual abuse claims) also tell wild tales, cave in to misleading questions, and make important errors. The same is true of some adults, of course. All of the books about personal cases of SRA were written by adults who seem to have believed their own stories.”

This pseudo-analysis does not accurately recount the facts either. Dr. Goodman has disseminated further propaganda in other publications and I have updated my critique to reflect this information. These articles are: “Children’s Eyewitness Memory: A Modern History and Contemporary Commentary,”. Journal of Social Issues, Vol. 62, No.4, 2006, pg. 818; and “Interviewing Children in and out of Court,”. The APSAC Handbook on Child Maltreatment, pg. 356.  http://members.cox.net/court50/goodmanoverview.pdf

Critique of Characteristics and Sources of Allegations of Ritualistic Child Abuse,. 2008, (Diana Napolis, M.A) posted at http://members.cox.net/dnap/goodmancritique.pdf
The researchers claimed throughout this study that organized, intergenerational, sexually molesting satanic cults did not exist, and that a small number of clinicians and agencies were responsible for the most reports of satanic ritual abuse. I am contesting both of these conclusions. In my opinion, there were too many methodological flaws, too much data was arbitrarily excluded, the conclusions reached were unsupportable and not based on the data gathered, and researcher bias, if not blatant manipulation, was prevalent throughout this research study.
I believe that there were ongoing attempts by the researchers to psychologically manipulate the reader into disbelieving that certain satanic practices existed by making value judgments about these practices from the start. The researchers continued to categorize reports of torture, cannibalism and murder as “bizarre” and “extreme,” and by the continual usage of those “buzz words,” it served as a “thought stopping” propaganda technique, intended to influence the reader into agreeing with the researchers assessments and conclusions. As unfortunate as it is, these are the practices of satanists and black magic practitioners world wide which a Lexis/Nexis search of “satan” “devil worship” and “ritual” would reveal.
Overall, there were too many serious methodological errors and omissions in this study to ignore and, in some instances, I believe, the researchers were caught in outright fabrications.

CIA, mind control, Nazis, mk-ultra, ritual abuse information

CIA brainwashing to medical breakthroughs: study to look at Cold War research 7/15/07  Dene Moore – Montreal (CP) ….Suddenly, the human psyche was the new frontier and, thanks to a now-notorious CIA-funded experiment, Montreal found itself an unlikely hub of activity. At McGill’s Allen Memorial Institute, Dr. Ewen Cameron believed he could “depattern” patients – an idea that cost the federal government an undisclosed amount of money this month in an out-of-court settlement with one former patient. Her lawyer said lawsuits involving other people are in the works. While Cameron’s work was the most notorious, he was hardly alone. Over the next few years, Andrea Tome, a medical historian at McGill University, will try to document Canada’s dubious Cold War psychiatric history. “It was happening all over,” Tome said in a recent interview.  “It’s a race; not an arms race but a race for science, for technological improvement.”  Montreal became a “medical mecca” of sorts, due in no small part to Cameron’s work and the research training program he established at McGill. Cameron served at various times as president of the Canadian Psychiatric Association and the World Psychiatric Association. His patients were put into drug-induced comas, given LSD and exposed for days or weeks at a time to recorded messages.  Cameron thought he could “program” the patients without flaw, an idea that intrigued the CIA enough to provide funding, along with the Canadian federal government. Patients like Janine Huard, who picked up her settlement cheque from the Canadian government a few weeks ago, suffered lifetime effects.  “I was a guinea pig,” Huard told The Canadian Press in an earlier interview. The CIA previously settled lawsuits with several of Cameron’s former patients, including Huard. It was unusual, even in the context of the times but it’s important to understand that it was the 1950s,” said Dr. Frederick Lowy, who was a junior colleague of Cameron at the institute. There was a lot of research and not a lot of rules. “Doctors who thought they could help a patient by doing something different and new, just did it,” said Lowy, who went on to become head of psychiatry and dean of medicine at the University of Toronto…. With the CIA financing, Cameron’s work became part of a project code-named MK-Ultra, which oversaw 149 similar experiments. More details about the project surfaced last month in declassified CIA documents. Among the 700-plus pages was a memo to the CIA Management Committee acknowledging that the agency accepted experimental drugs that were rejected by commercial manufacturers because of “unfavourable side-effects.”  The drugs were tested on monkeys and mice and, eventually, armed forces volunteers. “CIA projects weren’t just being carried out in Montreal,” Tome said. “Clearly there was something larger going on than just one lunatic fringe doctor at work.”  Indeed, the CIA and Cameron were not alone.  In 1961, 23 inmates at the Kingston Prison for Women were given LSD, one of many studies across the country of the drug which was not yet outlawed. Not all the prisoners consented.  Tome said prisons were, at the time, “the No. 1 source of clinical trial research.” While Cameron was conducting his experiments, Dr. Heinz Lehmann was pioneering the use of anti-psychotic drugs at the Verdun Protestant Hospital in Montreal. Like Cameron, he was doing it without supervision and without informed patient consent. Unlike Cameron, his experiments worked. Lehmann had read about a sedative he thought would be effective for psychiatric patients. “He thought he would give it a try on some of his schizophrenic patients,” Tome said. “Within weeks, he had these incredible remission rates.”  The drug was thorazine, the first anti-psychotic drug to offer any hope for psychiatric patients. While Cameron’s experiments were partially funded by the CIA, Lowy said they were not performed at the behest of the U.S. spy agency. http://web.archive.org/web/20070821165926/http://www.cbc.ca/cp/health/070715/x071504A.html

‘Family Jewels’ reveal CIA altered mind of four-year-old girl By Robert Lusetich in Los Angeles 6/28/07 EASILY lost, on page 425, in the mass of the CIA’s notorious “Family Jewels” files is a short paragraph outlining “potentially embarrassing Agency activities”. “Experiments in influencing human behaviour through the administration of mind- or personality-altering drugs to unwitting subjects.”  Of all the heinous acts committed by the CIA in the name of national security, these experiments, done on the agency’s behalf by prominent psychiatrists on innocent victims – including children as young as four – may be the darkest….In 1953, MKULTRA was given six per cent of the total CIA budget without any oversight.  Only the tip of a large iceberg had been previously released by the CIA under Freedom of Information Act provisions.  Yesterday’s acknowledgments will comfort those who have long campaigned for truth and restitution. The nature of the experiments, gathered from government documents and testimony in numerous lawsuits brought against the CIA, is shocking, from testing LSD on children to implanting electrodes in victims’ brains to deliberately poisoning people with uranium. “The CIA bought my services from my grandfather in 1952 starting at the tender age of four,” wrote Carol Rutz of her experiences. “Over the next 12 years, I was tested, trained, and used in various ways. “Electroshock, drugs, hypnosis, sensory deprivation, and other types of trauma were used to make me complain and split my personality (to create multiple personalities for specific tasks). “Each alter or personality was created to respond to a post-hypnotic trigger, then perform an act and (I would) not remember it later. “This Manchurian Candidate program was just one of the operational uses of the mind-control scenario by the CIA. “Your hard-earned tax dollars supported this.” The US began these experiments after World War II when it made a grab for hundreds of Nazi scientists and doctors who had been researching mind control in concentration camps, fearing they would fall into Soviet hands. US military intelligence leaders were paranoid that they were falling behind the communist bloc in the brain-washing race. The programs, though carefully hidden, continued into the 1970s – when Helms ordered much of the documentation to be destroyed. http://www.news.com.au/story/0,23599,21978876-2,00.html

CIA Experiments with Mind Control on Children by Jon Rappoport “The CIA mind-control apparatus has been well known since 1975, when 10 large boxes of documents were released pursuant to Freedom of Information Act requests….None of this prepared people for the explosive testimony made on March 15, 1995, in Washington, D.C., before the President’s Committee on Radiation, however.  In unpublicized sessions, New Orleans therapist Valerie Wolf introduced two of her patients who had uncovered memories of being part of extensive CIA brainwashing programs as young children (in one case, starting at age seven).  Their brainwashing included torture, rape, electroshock, powerful drugs, hypnosis and death threats. According to their testimony, the CIA then induced amnesia to prevent their recalling these terrifying sessions. Both Wolf and her patients stated that they recovered the memories of this CIA program without regression or hypnosis techniques.  In other words, these patients spontaneously discovered this information about themselves and their pasts.” ….This article appeared in Perceptions Magazine September/October 1995 10734 Jefferson Blvd., Suite 502 Culver City, CA  90230 (310) 313-5185 – and – The Leading Edge Research Journal Issue No. 85, September 1995 Leading Edge Research Group POB 7530 Yelm, Washington  98597 http://www.netti.fi/~makako/mind/child.txt

Ottawa settles brainwashing class action – Allan Memorial Institute. CIA-funded treatments included electroshock, experimental medication Max Harrold – The GazettePublished: 7/5/07 Decades after she was unknowingly brainwashed in a program funded by the federal government and the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, Janine Huard has found some peace of mind in a cash settlement. Exactly how much, she can’t say, because she agreed to keep the amount secret as part of her deal to drop her class-action lawsuit against the federal government….On and off for 15 years, Huard received massive electroshock therapy, experimental pills and was forced to listen to repetitive recorded messages for days on end. Huard’s lawyer, Alan Stein, said the amount she received Tuesday does not exceed the $100,000 the federal government paid to each of 77 other victims of the brainwashing techniques in 1994. Huard also received some interest on the money, he said. She and about 200 other victims of the treatments were denied the 1994 offer because they were deemed to have suffered less than those who were paid. In 1989, Huard was one of nine plaintiffs awarded $67,000 U.S. from the CIA. Stein plans to seek permission to launch a new class-action lawsuit in Federal Court “within weeks” with another former brainwashing patient as the central plaintiff. He knows of about 10 former patients and 20 relatives of former patients who may be part of the new lawsuit, he said. They could have access to $100,000, plus as much as $50,000 in interest, he said….Until 1964, the Allan’s ex-director, Ewen Cameron, conducted experiments at the institute, often without the knowledge or permission of patients. Some patients were kept in drug-induced comas for months. The experiments were part of a larger CIA program called MK-ULTRA, which saw LSD administered to U.S. prison inmates and patrons of brothels without their knowledge, according to testimony before a 1977 U.S. Senate committee. Huard entered the Allan in 1957 after suffering postpartum depression after the birth of her second child. Her newborn had become ill and Huard was having trouble sleeping.  Cameron used his experimental techniques on her, mistakenly believing they could treat depression. http://www.canada.com/montrealgazette/news/montreal/story.html?id=549f3d3d-65d4-4f75-b389-22b5964c2873

Brainwashed ‘guinea pig’ seeks more damages TheStar.com – News – Brainwashed ‘guinea pig’ seeks more damages – Canadian victim of CIA experiment in ’50s tries to launch class-action suit against Ottawa – Dene Moore – Toronto Star  Montreal “Janine Huard says she was a young mother of four with mild post-partum depression when she checked herself in for psychiatric treatment at a Montreal hospital more than five decades ago. Huard says what happened after that still haunts her today and she will be in a federal courtroom this week seeking to launch a class-action lawsuit against the Canadian government for Cold War-era brainwashing experiments carried out on her and hundreds of other patients. I was a guinea pig,” she said. On and off for more than a decade at McGill University’s renowned Allan Memorial Institute, Huard says she received massive electroshocks and was fed more than 40 experimental pills a day. Huard, who will be 79 at the end of the month, says she was drugged and subjected to so-called “depatterning,” during which repetitive recordings were played in her ear for weeks on end, one of them telling her she was of no use to her family. “I came out of there so sick that my mother had to live with me for 10 years,” Huard says. She says she lost memories and suffered from migraines. The ordeal came at the hands of Dr. Ewan Cameron, an Edinburgh-educated, New York-based doctor who pioneered “psychic driving,” by which he believed he could erase the memories of patients and rebuild their psyches without psychiatric defect. The idea intrigued the CIA, which recruited Cameron to experiment with mind control techniques beginning in 1950. The McGill experiments were jointly funded by the CIA and the Canadian government. Cameron gave patients LSD and subjected them to the massive and multiple electroshock treatments. Some underwent sleep deprivation or total sensory deprivation. Others were kept in drug-induced comas for months while speakers under their pillows broadcast messages for up to 16 hours a day. The CIA eventually settled a class-action lawsuit by test subjects, including Huard. The allegations have not been proven in court. A federal court hearing is scheduled to begin Wednesday to decide whether to approve a class-action suit. In 1994, 77 of the mostly unwitting Canadian patients were awarded $100,000 each from the federal government, but only those who suffered “total depatterning,” meaning they were rendered to a childlike state. More than 250 others were denied compensation. In 2004, a federal appeal court overruled that decision and awarded a former patient the $100,000.” http://www.thestar.com/printArticle/168792

CIA thought Cameron’s techniques could be useful in the Cold War  Compiled by Liz Ferguson, The Gazette 1/11/07 “Ewen Cameron, the man behind the brainwashing experiments, was a Scottish-born psychiatrist who worked at the Royal Victoria Hospital and McGill’s Allan Memorial Institute. From 1950 to 1965 he subjected hundreds of patients at the Allan Memorial to unorthodox treatment involving LSD, huge doses of electroshock, drug-induced comas and tapes that they sometimes listened to for weeks at time. One woman received the treatment through most of her pregnancy. Funding came from the Canadian government and the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency as part of a project called MK-ULTRA. In that Cold War era, the spy agency thought these techniques might be useful against the Soviet Union – perhaps LSD could be used as a truth serum, brainwashing drug or incapacitating agent, given to prisoners or foreign leaders like Cuba’s Fidel Castro.” http://www.canada.com/montrealgazette/news/story.html?id=76d8f185-58cd-4f7a-9ef5-04c58a38bd97&k=22098

Papers: CIA knew of Eichmann Whereabouts by Hope Yen, AP 6/6/2006 Washington “Determined to win the Cold War, the   CIA kept quiet about the whereabouts of Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann in the 1950s for fear he might expose undercover anticommunist efforts in West Germany, according to documents released Tuesday. The 27,000 pages released by the National Archives are among the largest post-World War II declassifications by the CIA. They offer a window into the shadowy world of U.S. intelligence — and the efforts to use former Nazi war criminals as spies, sometimes to detrimental effect.”

Documents Shed Light on CIA’s Use of Ex-Nazis  By Scott Shane – The New York Times  6/6/2006 Washington “The Central Intelligence Agency took no action after learning the pseudonym and whereabouts of the fugitive Holocaust overseer Adolf Eichmann in 1958, according to CIA documents that shed new light on the spy agency’s use of former Nazis as informers after World War II.  The CIA was told by West German intelligence that Eichmann was living in Argentina under the name “Clemens” – a slight variation on his actual alias, Klement – but kept the information from Israel because of German concerns about exposure of former Nazis in the Bonn government, according to Timothy Naftali, a historian who examined the documents. Two years later, Israeli agents abducted Eichmann in Argentina and took him to Israel, where he was tried and executed in 1962.” http://www.truthout.org/docs_2006/060606R.shtml

Professor McCoy Exposes the History of CIA Interrogation, From the Cold War to the War on Terror 2/17/06 “A new expose gives an account of the CIA’s secret efforts to develop new forms of torture spanning fifty years. It reveals how the CIA perfected its methods, distributing them across the world from Vietnam to Iran to Central America, uncovering the roots of the Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo torture scandals. The book is titled “A Question of Torture: CIA Interrogation, From the Cold War to the War on Terror.”….From 1950 to 1962, the C.I.A. ran a massive research project, a veritable Manhattan Project of the mind, spending over $1 billion a year to crack the code of human consciousness, from both mass persuasion and the use of coercion in individual interrogation. And what they discovered — they tried LSD, they tried mescaline, they tried all kinds of drugs, they tried electroshock, truth serum, sodium pentathol. None of it worked. What worked was very simple behavioral findings, outsourced to our leading universities — Harvard, Princeton, Yale and McGill — and the first breakthrough came at McGill. And it’s in the book. And here, you can see the — this is the — if you want show it, you can. That graphic really shows — that’s the seminal C.I.A. experiment done in Canada and McGill University….Dr. Donald O. Hebb of McGill University, a brilliant psychologist, had a contract from the Canadian Defense Research Board, which was a partner with the C.I.A. in this research, and he found that he could induce a state of psychosis in an individual within 48 hours. It didn’t take electroshock, truth serum, beating or pain. All he did was had student volunteers sit in a cubicle with goggles, gloves and headphones, earmuffs, so that they were cut off from their senses, and within 48 hours, denied sensory stimulation, they would suffer, first hallucinations, then ultimately breakdown.” http://www.democracynow.org/print.pl?sid=06/02/17/1522228

CIA agrees to release records detailing ties to former Nazis Douglas Jehl, New York Times 2/7/05 “Washington — Under pressure from Congress, the Central Intelligence Agency has formally agreed to a broad new interpretation of a 1998 law that requires disclosure of classified records related to Nazi war criminals, a CIA document shows.” http://sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2005/02/07/MNGU8B72US1.DTL

Documents reveal CIA recruited five of Eichmann’s associates by Yossi Melman, Haaretz Correspondent “Five of Adolph Eichmann’s Nazi assistants were recruited and employed by the Central Intelligence Agency after World War II, according to recently declassified intelligence documents.  The information came to light after a lengthy battle waged by the non-profit group, The National Security Archive, whose goal is to expose government documents under the framework of the Freedom of Information Act. The newly-revealed documents are based on internal investigations in the CIA’s history department. The agency has steadfastly refused to make the documents public for fear they would cause embarassment.” http://web.archive.org/web/20050205211432/http://www.haaretz.com/hasen/spages/536364.html

CIA urged to release Nazi records 2/1/05 “The CIA has been urged to release documents about Nazi war criminals hired by US intelligence officials during the Cold War era. The call comes from members of Congress who drew up the 1998 public disclosure law, which requires declassification of all documents about the Holocaust.  They say the CIA is withholding details of people it recruited after World War II for their expertise. Released documents show links between US intelligence and Nazi war criminals. The CIA has contributed 1.25 million pages of documents, of more than eight million, released under the 1998 law. One former Nazi known to have been employed by Western intelligence was Klaus Barbie, the infamous “Butcher of Lyon”. He was eventually convicted of crimes against humanity by a French court. The law’s authors – Senator Mike DeWine and Representative Carolyn Maloney – believe the CIA is withholding further details on the Nazi war criminals, suspects or collaborators that were hired.” http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/americas/4225629.stm

Brainwash victims win cash claims – Karin Goodwin 10/17/04  “HUNDREDS of mentally ill patients who were subjected to barbaric CIA-funded brainwashing experiments by a Scottish doctor could be entitled to compensation following a landmark court ruling. Doctor Ewan Cameron, who became one of the world=s leading psychiatrists, developed techniques used by Nazi scientists to wipe out the existing personalities of people in his care. Cameron, who graduated from Glasgow University, was recruited by the CIA during the cold war while working at McGill University in Montreal, Canada. He carried out mind-control experiments using drugs such as LSD on hundreds of patients, but only 77 of them were awarded compensation. Now a landmark ruling by a Federal Court judge in Montreal will allow more than 250 former patients, whose claims were rejected, to seek compensation.” http://www.timesonline.co.uk/

US Intelligence and the Nazis – Brietman, Goda, Naftali and Wolfe, “published by the National Archives Trust Fund for the Nazi War Crimes and Japanese Imperial Government Records Interagency Working Group, discusses hundreds of the 8 million-plus pages of documents released under the Nazi War Crimes Disclosure Act by the CIA, FBI, NSA, Army, State Department, and other U.S. agencies. This book contains a great deal of new information about the world of intelligence, especially concerning the postwar use of war criminals by U.S. intelligence organizations. It also sheds new light on Holocaust issues, showing, for example that the Allies had knowledge of the genocide earlier than historians previously believed. By using these newly released documents to refine what was previously understood about World War II, the Holocaust, and intelligence activities during and after the war, the authors demonstrate the historical, cultural, and moral importance of the declassified information.

The Hidden History of CIA Torture: America’s Road to Abu Ghraib By Alfred W. McCoy TomDispath.com 9/9/04 “From 1950 to 1962, the CIA conducted massive, secret research into coercion and the malleability of human consciousness which, by the late fifties, was costing a billion dollars a year. Many Americans have heard about the most outlandish and least successful aspect of this research – the testing of LSD on unsuspecting subjects. While these CIA drug experiments led nowhere and the testing of electric shock as a technique led only to lawsuits, research into sensory deprivation proved fruitful indeed. In fact, this research produced a new psychological rather than physical method of torture, perhaps best described as “no-touch” torture. The Agency’s discovery was a counterintuitive breakthrough, the first real revolution in this cruel science since the seventeenth century – and thanks to recent revelations from Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo, we are now all too familiar with these methods, even if many Americans still have no idea of their history. Upon careful examination, those photographs of nude bodies expose the CIA’s most basic torture techniques – stress positions, sensory deprivation, and sexual humiliation.”  http://www.tomdispatch.com/index.mhtml?pid=1795

How brainwashing came to life and thrived – Jeff Stryker – 8/1/04 The term “brainwashing” was first popularized by Edward Hunter, in his 1951 book, “Brainwashing in Red China.” Brainwashing was his translation for a Chinese term “hsi-nao,” meaning, roughly, “cleansing of the mind.” Lifton concluded that the Chinese interrogation techniques were merely time-honored methods of psychological coercion: isolation, humiliation and the repetition of propaganda.@ “Helen McGonigle, a Connecticut lawyer who represents victims of trauma and sexual abuse, knows she sounds like one of the nutters on the Internet when she talks about the history of military involvement in mind control.  When asked if she thinks the government is still in the business of mind control, McGonigle responded without skipping a beat. “Absolutely,” she said. “The history of the Bluebird, Artichoke and MKULTRA definitely raise the bar of suspicion,” McGonigle said, ticking off a series of government experiments involving hypnosis, sleep deprivation and the use of psychotropic drugs. MKULTRA, underway from 1953 to 1966, involved research into mind-control agents at scores of prestigious institutions by prominent psychologists. MKULTRA scientists attempted to determine whether LSD could be aerosolized effectively; the CIA even hired a magician to teach field agents how to slip LSD into the drinks of unwitting subjects.  Other experiments involved various forms of sleep deprivation and hypnosis. Consider a research question posed in CIA documents from the Bluebird experiments in the 1950s: “Could we seize a subject and in the space of an hour or two by post-H[ypnotic] control have him crash an airplane, wreck a train, etc.?”” http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2004/08/01/INGRR7UIJ31.DTL

RITUAL ABUSE IN THE TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY Psychological, Forensic, Social and Political Considerations by Randy Noblitt and Pam Perskin Noblitt  Allegations of ritual abuse are universal and mental health professionals, theologians, law enforcers, scholars, victim advocates, and others struggle to comprehend the enormity of the devastation left in the wake of these heinous acts.  Ritual Abuse in the Twenty-first Century addresses the concerns that naturally evolve from any discussion of this phenomenon from the perspectives of professionals, advocates, and survivors from around the world. How valid are the survivors’ stories?  Is there evidence?  What are the consequences of these acts to the individual and society?  Why have these allegations been ignored or discredited whenever they have surfaced?  The authors of these chapters respond to these and other questions in an effort to illustrate the constellation of psychological, health, legal, criminal, societal, and spiritual ramifications of ritual abuse.  Chapters address current issues including ritually based crime, civil suits involving allegations of ritual abuse, that are universal. The value of understanding ritual trauma for diagnostic and treatment applications is discussed. ISBN:  978-1-934759-12-7  ISBN 10:  1-934759-12-0  Soft cover, 6 x 9, 552 pages, $39.95 US Robert D.

Torture of Canadian Women by Non-State Actors in the Private Sphere: A Shadow Report – Members of the Nova Scotia ‘torture free zone’ circle of the NGO Canadian Voice of Women for Peace (VOW), Linda MacDonald and Jeanne Sarson, have submitted a report to the UN Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW). The report is entitled Torture of Canadian Women by Non-State Actors in the Private Sphere: A Shadow Report. The report includes Canadian women’s oral testimonies of various forms of torture they report enduring. It also presents survey findings of Canadian and non-Canadian women’s reproductive tortures. Recommendations include amendments to the Canadian Criminal Code to specifically name and criminalize acts of non-state torture; that statistical data then be kept on acts of non-state torture; that victimized persons be provided with appropriate support and resources, and research and educative interventions be implemented. The report is timely considering, for example, the UN Press Release of June 26, 2008. In this Joint Statement on the Occasion of the UN International Day in Support of Victims of Torture, it is stated that certain forms of gender-specific violence perpetrated by State and non-state actors is now recognized as falling within the definition of torture.

Torture-based mind control as a global phenomenon

October 3, 2008 § Leave a comment

Karriker, W. (2008, September). Torture-based mind control as a global phenomenon: Preliminary data from the 2007 series of Extreme Abuse Surveys. In Torture-based mind control: Empirical research, programmer methods, effects and treatment. Workshop conducted at the 13th International Conference on Violence, Abuse and Trauma, San Diego, CA, Ellen Lacter, Moderator.

Human beings cannot be programmed like robots, I had believed. But that was before the early 80’s when persons with multiple personality disorder began coming to me for psychotherapy. I observed that some of my clients had two distinct sets of alters: those they had created spontaneously to survive unspeakable acts against them and those who appeared to have been conditioned to serve specific functions for their perpetrators or perpetrator groups.

In the late 80’s, a client who had been processing her memories of satanic ritual abuse brought a journal to our session in which she noted writings by an alter personality who used computer jargon: access codes, systems, exit, entry, delete, input, output, sequences, etc. This client came to believe that her father, an ex-military man, and his buddies in the cult had somehow “programmed” her as a child to serve at their pleasure. Later she remembered hearing words, letters, numbers, rhymes, and sometimes classical music in the background when they were torturing her in various ways.

In 1992 at an MPD conference in Alexandria, Virginia, I first heard about the secret Cold War mind control experiments supposedly carried out by Nazi doctors who had been smuggled into the US after World War II to continue their concentration camp-type experiments. I realized that some of the memories reported by another one of my ritually abused clients were consistent with the types of programming used in the well-documented MKULTRA project. In 1973, at the instruction of then CIA Director Richard Helms, the bulk of these records were destroyed. In 1977, Senator Edward Kennedy called for a “public accounting of the abuses of the past.” His request has not been honored.

I don’t know if my first “programmed” client was used in government mind control experiments or not. Because of family circumstances she had to leave therapy before I had learned about the torture-based Cold War experiments.

In 1995, I learned that three courageous victims of mind control experiments had stood before the President’s Advisory Committee on Human Radiation Experiments to tell the world about the horrors they had endured in the name of National Security. Giving explanation and support for these women was therapist Valerie Wolf whose speech is printed in the Media Packet I have given you. After that hearing, the Committee recommended that all records of the CIA bearing on programs of secret human research become a top priority for declassification review. After 13 years, there has been no declassification of related files or investigation of government-sponsored mind control experimentation on children.

In his book, Bluebird: Deliberate Creation of Multiple Personality by Psychiatrists, Ross (2000), writes: “The major goal of the Cold War mind control programs was to create dissociative symptoms and disorders, including full multiple personality disorder” (p. E). In line with what I had already observed in a few of my clients, Gould and Cozolino (1992) contend that ritual abuse survivors with multiple personality disorder may have personalities deliberately created by cults that have been programmed [a mind control term] to perform specific functions for the cult. Thus, victims could have had mind control tactics used on them even if they were not subjects in government-sponsored mind control experiments. Conversely, government-sponsored mind control subjects could have been ritually abused in experimental settings.

The title of my presentation indicates that torture-based mind control is a global phenomenon. Some of my colleagues have heard reports from their clients about mind control programming in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Germany, Norway, Sweden, New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, France, Israel, Russia, Tibet, Afghanistan, India, Lebanon, Italy, China, Belgium, and Japan (personal communications, December 6, 2006).

The amount of data these surveys have generated is tremendous – over a half million cells of data coming off the webserver. Throughout this workshop I will be interjecting data that support information that the other presenters provide. Also in your handouts are some findings that I have already chosen as relevant to today’s discussion.

For those of you listening via CD, the handout titled, “Media Packet: Torture-based, Government-sponsored Mind Control Experimentation on Children” is already available at the EAS website. It includes a brief history of the government projects and the frequency of responses on related mind control questions by the 257 participants who answered “yes” to the question: “Secret government-sponsored mind control experiments were conducted on me as a child.”

The packet offers documentation that torture-based, government-sponsored mind control (GMC) experimentation was conducted on children during the Cold War. It provides data from the EAS and P-EAS that give voice, visibility, and validation to survivors of these crimes against humanity.

(Briefly go over Media Packet)

In the other handout I have provided some additional statistics related to mind control programming. As soon as possible, we will post on the EAS website (http://extreme-abuse-survey.net) a transcript of this presentation which includes these findings:

Adult survivors on the Extreme Abuse Survey (EAS) were asked to select the category of extreme abuse that best describes their experiences as survivors. 987 persons responded to the question.

Ritual Abuse (RA) …………………………………….191 (19%)

Mind Control (MC) …………………………………… 69 (7%)

Ritual Abuse and Mind Control (RA-MC) ………… 513 (52%)

Other Extreme Abuse (EA) ………………………… 214 (22%)

I. Regarding the global nature of MC as per EAS . . .

Of 640 survivors who answered “yes” to “My perpetrator(s) deliberately created/programmed dissociative states of mind (such as alters, personalities, ego-states) in me,”

391 were from the US

42 were from Canada

136 were from Europe

61 were from other or unnamed countries

Of 257 survivors who answered “yes” to the statement, “Secret government-sponsored mind control experiments were performed on me as a child,”

185 were from the US

25 from Canada

25 from Europe

20 from other or unnamed countries

II. Results of the C-EAS suggest that formal mind control of children is more recent than one would like to believe.

When caregivers of children under 18 who had disclosed RA/MC were asked if the children had reported non-consensual mind control experimentation . . .

41(45%) of 92 who answered the question answered “yes.”

III. Not all therapists who have worked with clients who report MC actually believe that their clients were victims of mind control. Below are the responses to this item from the P-EAS:

Of individuals reporting memories consistent with RA/MC, I believe that the following percentage actually experienced mind control. (click only on one response)

Number who responded to each percentage.

14 Zero

24 1 to 10%

9 11 to 20%

2 21 to 30%

6 31 to 40%

10 41 to 50%

9 51 to 60%

13 61 to 70%

14 71 to 80%

20 81 to 90%

107 91 to 100%

34 Don’t know

14 No answer

IV. One of our findings is particularly relevant to the theory that government experimenters went to the already existing satanic covens to get some of their subjects – children who had already learned the lessons of dissociation.

Of the 257 EAS respondents who reported that secret mind control experiments were used on them as children, 69% or 177 reported abuse in a satanic cult.

Of the 543 EAS respondents who reported that they had been abused in a satanic cult, 33% or 179 reported being used in secret mind control experiments as children.

V. Regarding one of the most frequent programs that we hear about, the

“Don’t Talk, Don’t Tell” Programming

EAS 77% of adult survivors who responded to the related question had been threatened with death if they ever talked about the abuse.

P-EAS 93% of professionals who responded to the related question had worked with at least one survivor who had been threatened with death if he or she ever talked about the abuse.

C-EAS 80% of child caregivers who responded to the related question had heard a child say they had been threatened with death if he or she ever talked about the abuse.

(See appendix for Tables 1 and 2)

Table 1 compares the frequencies of reported memories of respondents who are dealing with programs installed by perpetrators with the reported memories of respondents who are not dealing with those programs. They are ranked in order of degree of significance.

Table 2 compares the frequencies of possible aftereffects reported by the two groups also ranked in order of degree of significance.

In your handout is a much reduced copy of the poster that that I will hang at the Poster Session of the International Society for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation (ISSTD) Conference in Chicago in November 2008. The poster is titled: “Healing Methods: Comparing Ratings by Trauma Survivors and Trauma Therapists.” This will be available for download at http://extreme-abuse-survey.net after the conference [click on Presentations].

969 extreme abuse survivors responded to the optional “Healing Methods” section on the EAS; 198 professional helpers responded to the identical optional section on the P-EAS. As you can see, a table on the poster lists all 53 healing methods included on the surveys. It also shows the percents of total responses to “much help” and “great help” which are placed in rank order for each group.

Z-Values show significant differences in effectiveness ratings by survivors and by therapists for 43% of the healing methods under study.

Rated by both groups as most effective is Individual Psychotherapy/Counseling.

Rated by both groups as least effective is Electroshock Therapy.

That electroshock is ranked as least effective is not surprising given that on the . . .

EAS 50% of adult survivors who responded to the related question reported memories of electroshock abuse.

P-EAS 67% of 218 professionals who responded to the related question have worked with at least one client who reported electroshock abuse.

C-EAS 50% of 84 child caregivers who responded to the related question have heard a child disclose electroshock abuse.

The largest discrepancies (10+ percentage points) between survivors’ and therapists’ ratings of “much help” or “great help” were on the following items:

Therapists’ ratings higher: Individual Psychotherapy/Counseling, Grounding Techniques, Self-care/Self-soothing Techniques, Supportive Family Members, Non-suicide Contract with Therapist, EMDR, Art Therapy

Survivors’ ratings higher: Supportive Friends, Other Method(s), Formal Deprogramming, Theophostic Prayer, Deliverance, Internet Support Group, Reading Survivor Stories, Chiropractic, Exorcism, Reiki, Confronting Abusers, Music Therapy, Energy Therapies, Massage Therapy, Homeopathy, Aromatherapy

What do the numbers tell us? It looks like —

Therapists tend to favor stabilization techniques.

Survivors are more open to alternative ways to cope with indoctrinated belief systems including the use of formal deprogramming methods which my fellow presenters will be discussing this afternoon.

Here are some comments my co-researcher, Carol Rutz, made after looking at these results.

As a survivor and having gone to therapy for over ten years, I found that my time with the therapist was spent on the work, not telling him what was making me better. His spiritual beliefs were well known (not my own) so expounding on my own personal beliefs and the dynamic place they were having in my healing was not an issue. When you’re spending hard earned dollars every week or twice a month or whatever the case might be, you are interested in getting the most bang for your buck. In other words, get the work done while you’re there. What therapists reported are what they used and taught to their clients, so they are biased as to what helps. That is one reason why this is such an important study. If they really want to help, and I’m sure they do, they need to look at what survivors themselves said was the most effective. The therapy approach for them may not change in the least, but their openness to hearing about other avenues may help the client move more quickly through healing if they are acknowledged.
