The Shock Doctrine – by Naomi Klein – Chapter 1 – The Torture Lab – Ewen Cameron, the CIA and the maniacal quest to erase and remake the human mind.
An internal history of the United States government’s Nazi-hunting operation provides gripping new evidence about some of the most notorious Nazi cases of the last three decades. The Justice Department kept the 600-page report secret for the last four years, releasing a heavily redacted version last month to a private research group that sued to force its release. A complete version was obtained by The New York Times.
These are documents from the Central Intelligence Agency’s formerly Top Secret MKULTRA program which conducted what CIA Director Allen Dulles characterized as “ultra-sensitive” research in behavioral modification and assassination studies from the 1950s to the 1970s. MKULTRA was revealed during Congressional hearings in the mid-1970s. http://cryptome.org/mkultra-0001.htm

Frank Olson Family’s Lawsuit Against Alleged CIA Murder Dismissed
By FREDERIC J. FROMMER 07/17/13
WASHINGTON — A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit filed by the sons of a Cold War scientist who plunged to his death in 1953, just days after unwittingly taking LSD in a CIA mind-control experiment.
Frank Olson’s sons claimed that the CIA murdered their father by pushing him from a 13th-story window of a New York hotel – and that he didn’t jump to his death, as the agency contends.
But Judge James Boasberg cited the statute of limitations and a prior settlement agreement, among other things, in dismissing the suit Wednesday.
Eric and Nils Olson had sought compensatory damages to be determined at trial….http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/07/17/frank-olson-lawsuit-dismissed_n_3611911.html
Head of Family cult settles claim by accuser out of court
Mark Dunn Herald Sun July 29, 2011
ANNE Hamilton-Byrne, the former head of the Family cult, has made a secret out-of-court settlement with one of her alleged victims, who claimed he was routinely injected with LSD at her behest. Ms Hamilton-Bryne, who bleached the hair of children in the sect, and kept them hidden from the world, agreed to the settlement on Monday.
Supreme Court documents show at least five former cult members in the past four years have sued the self-appointed mystic for treatment they claimed to have suffered at her hands or under her direction.
It is believed Ms Hamilton-Byrne, who has dementia that her lawyers say renders her unable to remember the past, has settled at least two other actions and paid an undisclosed amount to shut down the legal actions….
In this week’s settlement, Robert Rosanove, now aged 59, claimed he was regularly abused between 1961 and 1974, when he was raised as a member of the Family in a range of locations in Victoria, including Ferny Creek.
Mr Rosanove’s statement of claim accuses Ms Hamilton-Byrne or her followers of subjecting him to abuse, including:
FORCIBLY administering psychoactive and hallucinogenic drugs, including LSD.
FALSELY “imprisoning” and “brainwashing” him.
FORCING him to take medications not legally prescribed and involuntary admissions to psychiatric institutions.
DEPRIVING him of “normal social interaction with other children and adults”.
Mr Rosanove said he suffers bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress, severe depression, anxiety and sleep problems as a result of the alleged abuse….
Ms Hamilton-Byrne, through her litigation guardian, denied the abuse claims.
In her defence statement, Ms Hamilton-Byrne argued the courts should not allow Mr Rosanove’s law suit to continue because it was too long ago.
The Family’s Lake Eildon property was raided by the federal police and child welfare officers in 1987 when six children were removed and authorities identified 14 children who had been raised by the cult. In 1993, Anne and husband Bill Hamilton-Byrne were arrested by the FBI in the Catskill Mountains, New York, and extradited to Melbourne.

….For years, Anne Hamilton-Byrne ran a bizarre cult known as The Family. But, this was no ordinary family. Children stolen at birth … brainwashed … beaten …even given mind-altering drugs like LSD.
The list of abuses at her isolated retreat outside Melbourne goes on. It was a true house of horrors. Throughout it all, Hamilton-Byrne was helped by a group of unquestioning followers, including a sinister inner-circle of women known as the Aunties.
To these disciples she was the re-incarnation of Jesus Christ. Her word gospel….

Harvard And the CIA Continued
NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED
February 11, 1978
ANOTHER FACET OF Harvard’s relationship, past and present, with the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) emerged last week as Dr. Martin T. Orne ’48, the director of a Medical School hypnosis research project in the early ’60s, outlined how his group unwittingly received $30,000 from the CIA. Last week’s disclosure of Orne as the “unidentified researcher” mentioned in a University statement on CIA funding of Harvard projects raises several questions, centering not so much on the hypnosis research–which does not seem to be controversial–as on the University’s decision to honor Orne’s request to remain unidentified….
The University’s attitude toward releasing information on CIA-funded projects is particularly distressing in light of the fact that last week’s disclosure of the CIA’s interest in Orne’s work will certainly not be the last word on the agency’s involvement with Harvard. Other researchers with more to hide than Orne may also ask to remain unidentified, but the University should pursue a strict policy of disclosing all information it receives from the CIA. And the first step in accordance with this policy should be the release of documents relating to Harvard’s involvement in the CIA MK-ULTRA projects. Daniel Steiner ’54, general counsel to the University, said in October that he would release these documents. Now that Orne has been identified as one of the researchers who received CIA funds, the University no longer has an argument for withholding the documents.

Parents Claim School Officials Ignored Sexual Assaults
Feb 25, 2013
By Phil Williams
Chief Investigative Reporter
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Two families claim, in a federal lawsuit filed Monday against Robertson County schools, that their young sons were sexually assaulted by other children.
It allegedly happened inside East Robertson Elementary School.
And even more disturbing: they claim school officials failed to stop it, failed to report it, even refused to cooperate with investigators.
NewsChannel 5 Investigates confirmed that those allegations even sparked a criminal investigation into the conduct of school officials. “My child was bullied sexually, and nobody seemed to want to do anything about it,” one of the mothers, Taryn Spivey, told NewsChannel 5.
Both families say the assaults have left their young children with deep emotional scars…. http://www.newschannel5.com/story/21346334/parents-claim-school-officials-ignored-sexual-assaults
Psychopaths Are Not Neurally Equipped to Have Concern for Others
Apr. 24, 2013 — Prisoners who are psychopaths lack the basic neurophysiological “hardwiring” that enables them to care for others, according to a new study by neuroscientists at the University of Chicago and the University of New Mexico.
“A marked lack of empathy is a hallmark characteristic of individuals with psychopathy,” said the lead author of the study, Jean Decety, the Irving B. Harris Professor in Psychology and Psychiatry at UChicago. Psychopathy affects approximately 1 percent of the United States general population and 20 percent to 30 percent of the male and female U.S. prison population. Relative to non-psychopathic criminals, psychopaths are responsible for a disproportionate amount of repetitive crime and violence in society.
“This is the first time that neural processes associated with empathic processing have been directly examined in individuals with psychopathy, especially in response to the perception of other people in pain or distress,” he added.
The results of the study, which could help clinical psychologists design better treatment programs for psychopaths, are published in the article, “Brain Responses to Empathy-Eliciting Scenarios Involving Pain in Incarcerated Individuals with Psychopathy,” which appears online April 24 in the journal JAMA Psychiatry….

Chile arrests 4 accused of burning baby in rite
Friday Apr 26, 2013 The Associated Press
SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) — Chilean police on Thursday arrested four people accused of burning a baby alive in a ritual because the leader of the sect believed that the end of the world was near and that the child was the antichrist.
The 3-day-old baby was taken to a hill in the town of Colliguay near the Chilean port of Valparaiso on Nov. 21 and was thrown into a bonfire. The baby’s mother, 25-year-old Natalia Guerra, had allegedly approved the sacrifice and was among those arrested….
Authorities said the 12-member sect was formed in 2005 and was led by Ramon Gustavo Castillo Gaete, 36, who remains at large.
“Everyone in this sect was a professional,” Ampuero said. “We have someone who was a veterinarian and who worked as a flight attendant, we have a filmmaker, a draftsman. Everyone has a university degree. ”
