CIA Accused of Coverup in Military Scientist’s 1953 Fatal Fall, Bipartisan Legislation to Help Train Child Protection Professionals to Detect and Prevent Child Abuse

CIA Accused of Coverup in Military Scientist’s 1953 Fatal Fall
By Tom Schoenberg Bloomberg News
Thursday, November 29, 2012

CIA employees murdered military scientist Frank Olson in 1953 after he raised concerns about testing chemical and biological weapons on human subjects without their consent, according to a lawsuit brought by his two sons.

Eric and Nils Olson, in a complaint filed Wednesday against the United States in Washington, said the agency has covered up the cause of their father’s death for 59 years. Frank Olson, who the CIA admitted was given LSD a few days before his death, didn’t jump from a 13th-floor window of the Statler Hotel in New York City, but rather was pushed, they claim.

Assassination manual

“The circumstances surrounding the death mirrored those detailed in an assassination manual that, upon information and belief, the CIA had drafted that same year,” Scott Gilbert, a lawyer for the Olsons, wrote in the complaint.

Olson’s family has tried to piece together how Frank Olson died and the circumstances surrounding his death ever since a 1975 government report on CIA activities in the U.S. said that he committed suicide after being given LSD without his knowledge.

The family’s lawsuit includes one claim of negligent supervision by the agency and requests that damages be decided at trial.

CIA spokesman Preston Golson said in an emailed statement that the agency doesn’t comment on pending court cases. He said that the agency’s covert behavioral research program known as MK-ULTRA was investigated in 1975 by the Rockefeller Commission and the Church Committee, and in 1977 by the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and the Senate Subcommittee on Health and Scientific Research.

“Without commenting on this specific legal matter, CIA activities related to MK-ULTRA have been thoroughly investigated over the years, and the agency cooperated with each of those investigations,” Golson said. “In addition, tens of thousands of pages related to the program have been declassified and released to the public.”

Olson’s sons said in the suit they have asked repeatedly “to be told the truth” about their father’s death and “each time, the government has responded with falsehoods.”….

Klobuchar, Franken, Walz, McCollum Introduce Bipartisan Legislation to Help Train Child Protection Professionals to Detect and Prevent Child Abuse

An estimated 695,000 children were victims of child abuse in 2010, and yet studies indicate that many child protection professionals such as teachers, doctors, and prosecutors are not adequately trained to identify and respond to abuse
Tuesday, December 4, 2012

U.S. Senators Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken and Representatives Tim Walz and Betty McCollum today introduced bipartisan legislation to help train child protection professionals to detect and prevent child abuse. The bill would create regional training centers – including the National Child Protection Training Center in Winona, MN – that would create new curricula for undergraduates and graduates in fields where they will most likely be involved in identifying and reporting cases of abuse. The legislation also increases coordination between federal, state and local officials in creating best practices for the training of child protection professionals. Senator Klobuchar authored the legislation in the Senate and Representative Walz introduced companion legislation in the House of Representatives….

According to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, an estimated 695,000 children were victims of child abuse in 2010. Yet studies indicate that those in the best position to identify and respond to child abuse – such as teachers, doctors, and prosecutors – are often not adequately trained to do so. For example, a 2001 survey of teachers found that 74% received minimal training on child abuse while earning their degrees and 58% had minimal training on the job….

MK-ULTRA Violence Or, how McGill pioneered psychological torture

September 8, 2012 Comments Off on MK-ULTRA Violence Or, how McGill pioneered psychological torture

MK-ULTRA Violence Or, how McGill pioneered psychological torture

Features | September 6th, 2012  Written by Juan Camilo Velasquez

Today, many journalists, doctors, and the general public see the Allan Memorial Institute in Royal Victoria Hospital as the cradle of modern torture, a cradle built and rocked by Scottish-born Dr. Donald Ewen Cameron. To the patients of Dr. Ewen Cameron, our university was the site of months of seemingly unending torture disguised as medical experimentation –– an experimentation that destroyed their lives and changed the course of psychological torture forever.

Cameron’s experiments, known as MK-ULTRA subproject 68, were partially funded by the CIA and the Canadian government, and are widely known for their use of LSD, barbiturates, and amphetamines on patients. In the media, they were known as the “mind control” studies done at McGill and were reported as a brainwashing conspiracy from the CIA and the Canadian government….

This story begins on June 1, 1951 at a secret meeting in the Ritz Carlton Hotel on Sherbrooke. The purpose of the meeting was to launch a joint American-British-Canadian effort led by the CIA to fund studies on sensory deprivation. In attendance was Dr. Donald Hebb, then director of psychology at McGill University, who received a grant of $10,000 to study sensory deprivation. It would be fifteen years after this meeting at the Ritz that Cameron would disastrously pick up where Hebb left off.

Dr. Hebb paid a group of his own psychology students to remain isolated in a room, deprived of all senses, for an entire day. In an attempt to determine a link between sensory deprivation and the vulnerability of cognitive ability, Hebb also played recordings of voices expressing creationist or generally anti-scientific sentiments – clearly, ideas psychology students would oppose. However, the prolonged period of sensory deprivation made the students overly susceptible to sensory stimulation. Students suddenly became very tolerant of the ideas that they had readily dismissed before. As a history professor at the University of Wisconsin – Madison, Alfred McCoy described in his book, A Question of Torture, that during Hebb’s own experiments “the subject’s very identity had begun to disintegrate.” One can only fathom the cognitive effects of Hebb’s work….

MK-ULTRA Subproject 68

Cameron’s research was based on the ideas of “re-patterning” and “re-mothering” the human mind. He believed that mental illness was a consequence of an individual having learned “incorrect” ways of responding to the world. These “learned responses” created “brain pathways” that led to repetitive abnormal behaviour.

Dr. Cameron wanted to de-pattern patients’ minds with the application of highly disruptive electroshock twice a day, as opposed to the norm of three times a week. According to him, this would break all incorrect brain pathways, thus de-patterning the mind. Some call it brainwashing; Cameron called it re-patterning….

Step 1: To prepare them for the de-patterning treatment, patients would be put into a state of prolonged sleep for about ten days using various drugs, after which they experienced an invasive electroshock therapy that lasted for about 15 days. But patients were not always prepared for re-patterning and sometimes Cameron used extreme forms of sensory deprivation as well….

Step 2: Following the preparation period and the de-patterning came the process of “psychic driving” or re-patterning, in which Cameron would play messages on tape recorders to his patients. He alternated negative messages about the patients’ lives and personalities with positive ones; these messages could be repeated up to half a million times….

The experiments done at McGill were part of the larger MK-ULTRA project led by Sidney Gottlieb of the CIA. In 1963, the year in which MK-ULTRA ended, the CIA compiled all the research into a torture manual called the Kubark Counterintelligence Interrogation Handbook. Yes, a “torture manual” that would eventually define the agency’s interrogation methods and training programs throughout the developing world….

Following 9/11, the war on terror and the generalized fearmongering that ensued, the Bush administration changed the rules of the game out of concern for homeland security. Then-U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld approved special practices that included the “use of isolation facility for up to thirty days.” All of a sudden, the U.S. allowed the use of torture methods developed just up University….

Only decades later, in the 1980s, did past victims speak about their experiences, and by the nineties, the lawsuits began to pile up. In response, the Canadian government launched “The Allan Memorial Institute Depatterned Persons Assistance Plan,” which provided $100,000 to each of the former patients of Dr. Ewen Cameron. The compensation came from a recommendation by lawyer George Cooper, in which he clarified that the Canadian government did not have a legal responsibility for what happened, but a moral responsibility.

Brain – Psychopaths, C.I.A. Data Show 14-Year Project On Controlling Behavior

April 28, 2012 Comments Off on Brain – Psychopaths, C.I.A. Data Show 14-Year Project On Controlling Behavior

Y! Big Story: What the brain tells us By Vera H-C Chan 4/28/12

….Finding how to stop extreme behavior. Thanks to crime literature and serial killer movies, Americans are aware of many different “-paths”: sociopath, psychopath, and antisocial personality disorder. What has been a raging debate is if one is doomed to that diagnosis and basically lifetime incarceration, or if there’s a window of intervention. One researcher went on a roadtrip into the heart of darkness: Using a mobile MRI unit, a University of New Mexico associate professor of psychology took a snapshot of 2,000 inmate volunteers.

He found that compared to the average offender, 60 percent of psychopaths re-offend within the next 200 days. Maximum-security juveniles showed a similar pattern: 68 percent of individuals who were at high risk for psychopathy re-offended.

Using images of the brain, [Kent] Kiehl said he could predict psychopathy as well as one can with clinical error. (April 23, Duke (University) Research Blog)

Among preliminary findings, Kiehl zeroed in on the interaction with a gene (MAOA) and a “stressful” upbringing and that treatment like group therapy actually ends in “violent failure” among adults. For juveniles, intervention’s a different story and can show a 50% reduction in violent recidivism.

“We have a problem in the United States: We incarcerate a lot of people,” he said. “We incarcerate more per capita than any other country. It’s expensive—it costs $2.34 trillion per year, which is about the same as the annual estimate for all health care [in the country].” (April 23, Duke (University) Research Blog)

C.I.A. Data Show 14-Year Project On Controlling Human Behavior; Data From C.I.A. Show Project on Human Behavior

By NICHOLAS M. HORROCK Special to The New York Times July 21, 1977
WASHINGTON, July 20 The Central Intelligence Agency conducted a 14-year program to find ways to “control human behavior” through the use of chemical, biological and radiological material, according to agency documents made public today by John Marks, a freelance journalist….

Marks: “To be sure, drugs were a part of it, ” he said, ” but so were such other techniques as electric shock, radiation, ultrasonics, psychosurgery, psychology and incapacitating agents, all of which were referred to in documents I have received.”….

According to Mr. Marks’s documents and an earlier Senate investigation, the C.I.A. conducted secret medical experiments from 1949 through 1963 under the code names Bluebird, Artichoke, MK Ultra and MK Delta. The C.I.A. inspector general’s report in 1963 described the program as the “research and development of chemical, biological and radiological materials capable of employment in clandestine operations to control human behavior.”

A LEGACY OF PAIN  SETTLEMENT DOESN’T EASE ABUSED CHILDREN’S FEARS
WEST POINT
Seven years have passed since she was sexually abused at West Point’s child-care center. Yet today, the 10-year-old girl can’t go to the bathroom  without her mother waiting by the door.

The girl – who was 3 when West Point child-care workers were accused of  sexually abusing her and 10 other children in 1984 – also asks her mother  about whether she will be able to bear children when she grows up.
“This happened seven years ago, and it’s not any better,” the girl’s  mother said. “She’s constantly asking, `What if we’re out in the store,  Mommy, and we see these people? Are they going to hurt me?’ . . . But this is  constantly on her mind because she knows these people are not in jail for what they did.”

In the U.S. District Court files in Manhattan, the West Point sexual abuse  case is resolved. The government failed in 1985 to indict any suspects in its  criminal investigation. But last month, it settled a civil suit brought by the parents of the 11 victims. Nine of the victims will receive $2.7 million, with awards ranging from $25,000 to $625,000.

But even as the legal dust has settled, the case lingers as a legacy of  pain for the families.
“These people stole our children,” the mother said. “(She’s) nothing  like she used to be. She’s a very angry little girl. She doesn’t trust anyone. She’s nothing like she was before this happened.

“It’s never going to be over for them, or for us.”
The case began in 1984, when allegations surfaced of sexual and physical  abuse of children at the West Point Child Development Center.
The incidents unfolded against a backdrop of satanic acts, animal  sacrifices and cult-like behavior among the abusers, whose activities extended beyond the U.S. Military Academy borders to Orange County and a military base  in San Francisco, parents charged.

The specter of satanism would later spur U.S. Military Academy officials to change the West Point child-care center’s building number from 666 to 673.

Despite 950 interviews by 60 FBI agents assigned to the investigation, an  investigation led by former U.S. Attorney Rudolph Giuliani produced no federal grand jury indictments. The investigation did find “significant indications  that children may have been abused” at the center.

Until now, no official reports or investigations have verified the sexual  abuse. The Times Herald-Record, however, has learned that a still-secret,  independent report – prepared by one of the nation’s top experts on child  sexual abuse – confirms the children’s accusations of abuse. The report also  played a vital role in ending the seven-year legal ordeal and in enabling the  case to be settled without the children undergoing potentially hostile  questioning on the witness stand, said U.S. District Judge Whitman Knapp, who  heard the civil case.

The expert, Dr. Ann Wolbert Burgess, a professor of psychiatric nursing at  the University of Pennsylvania at Philadelphia and the author of the book,  “Child Pornography and Sex Rings,” entered the case in 1989.

She interviewed all the children. She said yesterday that her goal in the  case had been to reduce harm to the children because testimony in open court  could have triggered symptoms of abuse, prompted by a “resurfacing” of the  original incident.

Knapp said that because Burgess worked for neither the government nor the  plaintiffs, but reported directly to the court, her findings carried  additional credibility. Neither Burgess nor others would speak about her  specific findings.

“You can draw your own conclusions from the fact that (the government)  paid all this money,” Knapp said about Burgess’ report. “The government  wouldn’t have likely paid that money unless the report gave them a basis for  doing that.”

The families’ lawyer, William E. Crain, who now practices in Elkin, N.C.,  and formerly worked in Newburgh, said the report is independent confirmation  of the children’s claims. He received nearly $300,000 in legal fees in the  case. The amount, 25 percent of the settlement, is set by law.

“Just generally speaking, it corroborated the children’s allegations they  had been sexually abused by day-care center staff,” Crain said of the  report.

“That report was sealed and has never been seen by anybody else and I hope it never will be,” Knapp said. “That has all the intimate details of what  happened to these children. Certainly, they don’t want to be plagued by that  when they grow up.”

The government, however, admitted none of the allegations in making the  settlement. Edward T. Ferguson III, the assistant U.S. attorney in charge of  the case, declined to comment on Burgess’ role. He said that the settlement  was in the best interests of the children and did not require them to testify  in court.
“Everyone involved – the parents, the government and the court – all  wished to avoid (the children taking the witness stand), if an accommodation  could be reached,” Ferguson said.

Among other things, several of the settlements – made individually with  each child’s family – provide for medical costs, counseling and a college  fund. The actual cost of the settlement is $1.175 million. Much of the money  will be invested and paid out during the victims’ lives, thereby increasing  the total to $2.7 million.
“They’re children. They’re going to have to live with what happened to  them. So are their parents,” Crain said. “But in terms of legal work, the  legal end of it is finished.”

Nancy Campbell-Capen’s job began just four months ago. West Point hired the New Jersey native to run its child-care program, including the center, a  red-brick building tucked on a hill between playing fields and a playground.
Ms. Campbell-Capen recalled talking about the sexual abuse case with her  boss and other center staffers.
“More people were reacting to the media coverage than the actual possible  event,” Ms. Campbell-Capen said she was told.

The center serves 150 children – 80 percent from military families and 20  percent from civilian workers. There are 120 children on a waiting list for  the center that now complies with federal guidelines, which were strengthened  in 1989.
“They certainly tightened the old regulations,” said Ms. Campbell-Capen,  who ran child-care centers at Army bases in Germany. “We discovered the need  to tighten up with staff training.”

Only a handful of the center’s 86 workers remain from the 1984 staff. Ms.  Campbell-Capen said the staff had no response to the lawsuit settlement.
The center is trying to receive accreditation from the National Association for the Education of Young Children.

The center’s dedication to meeting child-care standards contrasts with the  way victims’ parents were treated when they sought to alert West Point and the military that their children had been sexually violated.
The Army’s reaction to the parents’ plight so enraged former Army Dr.  Walter R. Grote that the ex-captain refused a promotion to major in 1985  because of the treatment of his child’s sexual abuse case at West Point. He  was one of the first parents to file the lawsuit, but later dropped out of  seeking money from the case.

“Unfortunately, money can’t . . . undo the trauma incurred by scores of  children at West Point . . . because people with responsibility didn’t  exercise that responsibility,” said Grote, now in private practice in New  Jersey. “What the hell is a settlement? . . . They could have caught these  people doing it at the time that they were doing it.
“We have a tendency to think that everything that’s evil and bad is on the other side of the Pacific or the Atlantic.
“And that’s not the case.”

The mother of the 10-year-old said the settlement will pay her daughter’s  college bills. But the mother said she would have preferred the government  kept its money and punished the abusers.
Without the prosecution, West Point has retained its polished national  image, she said. Even last month, the government admitted none of the  allegations in making the settlement, a reminder of what parents say was West  Point’s callous denial.

“They wouldn’t acknowledge what happened,” the mother said. “I’m sure if it was done anywhere else but West Point, it would have been acknowledged.”

Another parent whose son was sexually abused recalled that the Army was not prepared to treat satanic abuse.
“You had a bunch of kids who had some kind of abuse and the concerns of  the parents seeking assistance fell on deaf ears. The medical treatment for  the satanic abuse was not meeting the bill. It was far beyond what (the Army)  could handle,” said Maj. Bob Caslen, an infantry officer reached stationed at Fort Campbell, Ky.
Two teacher aides were suspended and later quit after the charges  surfaced.

After a federal grand jury failed to return indictments, community members  joined the parents in calling for another investigation in 1985.
Joan Benedict walked with parents at a protest in Highland Falls in hopes  of inspiring another probe. And she was a member of an Orange County  anti-pornography group that sponsored a forum to allow the victims’ parents to speak out in 1986.

Ms. Benedict said she used to pray and walk at West Point because of the  189-year-old institution’s majestic Hudson River views. But no more.
“When I saw the headlines of the child pornography ring at West Point, it  cut me to the heart,” Ms. Benedict said. “I know West Point is only surface  beauty. They were outright cruel to the parents.”
Ms. Benedict, a Town of Cornwall resident, started her own crusade to spark the Justice Department to reopen the abuse case. She ended her efforts in 1988 when she was convinced of a federal cover-up after receiving a letter from the U.S. Department of Justice.

Mary C. Spearing, a special attorney with the Justice Department’s National Obscenity Enforcement Unit, wrote that the case was closed.
“Unfortunately, no new evidence, revelation or hint of wrongdoing or  negligence surfaced during our review,” she wrote. She noted in her letter  that the assistant U.S. attorney on the case was a father of four and that she had two children herself.

The monetary settlement, however, did not resolve the parents’ bitterness  over what they still maintain was a botched FBI investigation. In fact, court  papers filed by parents showed federal investigators not only refused to  believe the children, but, in some cases, also criticized some parents for not keeping their children under control in their homes.

“When the agents came to the house, they did not appear to have a tape  recorder and they were not taking notes during the interview,” one parent  said in a sworn statement, according to 1984 court papers. “He became annoyed and frustrated and said, `It looks like she’s just trying to get attention.’  ”

Recalled Grote: “The tragedy is the abusers could have been caught . . .  with a little imagination and a lot less chauvinistic narcissism on the part  of West Point and the initial FBI investigator.”

Prosecutor Giuliani did not return calls last week. In 1987, Giuliani said  his detailed investigation showed only one or two children were abused. The  federal investigation cleared the center staff members accused by the  children.

The mother of the 10-year-old girl still tries to cope with the abuse’s  aftermath.
“As far as I’m concerned, the government gave them a license to go out and abuse other children,” the mother said. “I have to explain to my daughter  these people are still out there.
“And she still has nightmares. She’s afraid they’re going to come through  the window at night to get her.”

Center changes
Despite sexual abuse charges that surfaced in 1984 and a $1 million  renovation of the building, the West Point day-care center was hit with 79  violations in January 1988. Here are some of the violations found by the  14-member Pentagon task force and how they have been resolved:
– Doors lacked windows. According to inspectors, this “increases the  potential for child abuse.” All center doors now have windows.

– No background checks. The names of the 22 child-care providers were not  submitted to the Army Central Registry to determine whether they had prior  criminal records. All employees now have background checks done.

– Unprotected electrical outlets. All outlets now have protective caps.

– Toilets not immediately adjacent to activity areas.  Restrooms have been  renovated and child-size toilets have been installed.

– Some workers, from the center’s acting director to receptionists, did not receive proper training. Training has begun.

An Army Child Care Evaluation team spent a week in August scrutinizing the  center and did not list any infractions, said Ray Aalbue, a West Point  spokesman.

US Government Experiments on Americans – LSD and MKULTRA

US Government Experiments on Americans—LSD and MKULTRA By Russ Baker on Jun 2, 2011

Readers have shown considerable interest in the trailer we ran recently for the video about unknown radiation experiments on African American children.

Continuing our exploration of secret government experiments on American citizens, we now re-publish an article I wrote in 1999 about the CIA and LSD experiments. That article was originally commissioned by the New York Times Magazine, which opted in the end not to publish it. Instead, it appeared in the magazine of the esteemed British newspaper The Observer, the German newsmagazine Spiegel, and in top newspapers in Australia, Netherlands, and other countries. It  did not run in the United States….

from the 1999 article:
This coming Tuesday in a US court, Stanley’s past will be the focus of a lawsuit pitting the Glickman family against the US Government. At issue will be exactly what happened in a Paris cafe in November 1952 when, according to the family, a CIA official slipped a large dose of LSD into Stanley’s drink, triggering a psychotic episode and transforming him into a neighbourhood ‘character’ with a secret.

Acid, Americans and the Agency
In 1952, Stanley Glickman was a promising young painter studying in Paris. Then one night he shared a drink with some fellow Americans, and his life fell apart. Did the CIA spike his drink with LSD? By Russ Baker The Observer, Sunday 14 February 1999

Thursday, May 6, 1999 The CIA’s purple haze
TV stars run amok; geriatric criminals terrorize nation.
….Or how about the Central Intelligence Agency dosing unsuspecting United States’ citizens with LSD? True, it’s an old story, but it may well be a true story, and one of its longest chapters closed last week when a New York jury, in the court of U.S. District Judge Kimba Wood….ruled against the estate of artist Stanley Glickman.

Until his death in 1992, Glickman insisted that a CIA agent, who for 40 years he consistently described as having a clubfoot, had slipped him a mind-bending mickey in a glass of Chartreuse liqueur at a bar in Paris in 1952, driving Glickman mad and destroying his life….

In addition to newspaper and magazine articles, and sworn testimony given at the 1977 Senate hearings on CIA abuses, chaired by Sen. Ted Kennedy, at least two books feature extensive, and colorful, coverage of the Company’s psychoactive shenanigans — “Acid Dreams: The CIA, LSD and the Sixties Rebellion,” by Martin Lee and Bruce Shlain (1985) and “Storming Heaven: LSD and the American Dream” by Jay Stevens (1987).

According to “Acid Dreams,” and a Feb. 14 article in The Observer, in the 1950s the U.S. government began operating a covert drug-testing program called MK-ULTRA
