German prosecutors push for prison time for Colonia Dignidad member
German prosecutors have asked a court to enforce a verdict from Chile and send fugitive Hartmut Hopp to jail. Hopp was among the top members of the Colonia Dignidad cult, and allegedly aided the sexual abuse of children.
In the 1980s, Hopp often acted as a spokesman for the cult
German officials urged the court to uphold Hopp’s five-year sentence, a spokesman for the prosecutor’s office in the western town of Krefeld said on Tuesday.
The 72-year-old doctor fled Chile in 2011, after a court in the South American country found him guilty of 16 counts of aiding child abuse. As a German citizen, Hopp is protected from extradition while in Germany.
During his time in Chile, Hopp was a member of a closed community called Colonia Dignidad, which consisted mostly of German expatriates. He also acted as a deputy and right-hand man to the enclave’s founder, Paul Schäfer – a former Nazi and convicted pedophile.
The Chilean authorities have discovered that the community functioned as a cult, where children were abused for decades and residents forbidden to leave the colony. The cult leadership also cooperated with the Pinochet regime, which used Colonia Dignidad’s premises as a torture camp and warehouse for weapons and poison gas….

The CIA Didn’t Just Torture, It Experimented on Human Beings
Reframing the CIA’s interrogation techniques as a violation of scientific and medical ethics may be the best way to achieve accountability.
Lisa Hajjar December 16, 2014
Human experimentation was a core feature of the CIA’s torture program. The experimental nature of the interrogation and detention techniques is clearly evident in the Senate Intelligence Committee’s executive summary of its investigative report, despite redactions (insisted upon by the CIA) to obfuscate the locations of these laboratories of cruel science and the identities of perpetrators.
At the helm of this human experimentation project were two psychologists hired by the CIA, James Mitchell and Bruce Jessen. They designed interrogation and detention protocols that they and others applied to people imprisoned in the agency’s secret “black sites.”
In its response to the Senate report, the CIA justified its decision to hire the duo: “We believe their expertise was so unique that we would have been derelict had we not sought them out when it became clear that CIA would be heading into the uncharted territory of the program.” Mitchell and Jessen’s qualifications did not include interrogation experience, specialized knowledge about Al Qaeda or relevant cultural or linguistic knowledge. What they had was Air Force experience in studying the effects of torture on American prisoners of war, as well as a curiosity about whether theories of “learned helplessness” derived from experiments on dogs might work on human enemies….
The “war on terror” is not the CIA’s first venture into human experimentation. At the dawn of the Cold War, German scientists and doctors with Nazi records of human experimentation were given new identities and brought to the United States under Operation Paperclip. During the Korean War, alarmed by the shocking rapidity of American POWs’ breakdowns and indoctrination by their communist captors, the CIA began investing in mind-control research. In 1953, the CIA established the MK-ULTRA program, whose earliest phase involved hypnosis, electroshock and hallucinogenic drugs. The program evolved into experiments in psychological torture that adapted elements of Soviet and Chinese models, including longtime standing, protracted isolation, sleep deprivation and humiliation. Those lessons soon became an applied “science” in the Cold War.
During the Vietnam War, the CIA developed the Phoenix program, which combined psychological torture with brutal interrogations, human experimentation and extrajudicial executions. In 1963, the CIA produced a manual titled “Kubark Counterintelligence Interrogation” to guide agents in the art of extracting information from “resistant” sources by combining techniques to produce “debility, disorientation and dread.” Like the communists, the CIA largely eschewed tactics that violently target the body in favor of those that target the mind by systematically attacking all human senses in order to produce the desired state of compliance. The Phoenix program model was incorporated into the curriculum of the School of the Americas, and an updated version of the Kubark guide, produced in 1983 and titled “Human Resource Exploitation Manual,” was disseminated to the intelligence services of right-wing regimes in Latin America and Southeast Asia during the global “war on communism.”
In the mid-1980s, CIA practices became the subject of congressional investigations into US-supported atrocities in Central America….

The Hidden Tragedy of the CIA’s Experiments on Children
Wednesday 11 August 2010 H.P. Albarelli Jr. and Dr. Jeffrey S. Kaye, t r u t h o u t | Investigative Report
From early 1940 to 1953, Dr. Lauretta Bender, a highly respected child neuropsychiatrist practicing at Bellevue Hospital in New York City, experimented extensively with electroshock therapy on children who had been diagnosed with “autistic schizophrenia.” In all, it has been reported that Bender administered electroconvulsive therapy to at least 100 children ranging in age from three years old to 12 years, with some reports indicating the total may be twice that number. One source reports that, inclusive of Bender’s work, electroconvulsive treatment was used on more than 500 children at Bellevue Hospital from 1942 to 1956, and then at Creedmoor State Hospital Children’s Service from 1956 to 1969….Despite publicly claiming good results with electroshock treatment, privately Bender said she was seriously disappointed in the aftereffects and results shown by the subject children. Indeed, the condition of some of the children appeared to have only worsened. One six-year-old boy, after being shocked several times, went from being a shy, withdrawn child to acting increasingly aggressive and violent. Another child, a seven-year-old girl, following five electroshock sessions had become nearly catatonic.
Years later, another of Bender’s young patients who became overly aggressive after about 20 treatments, now grown, was convicted in court as a “multiple murderer.” Others, in adulthood, reportedly were in and of trouble and prison for a battery of petty and violent crimes. A 1954 scientific study of about 50 of Bender’s young electroshock patients, conducted by two psychologists, found that nearly all were worse off after the “therapy” and that some had become suicidal after treatment. One of the children studied in 1954 was the son of well-known writer Jacqueline Susann, author of the bestselling novel “Valley of the Dolls.” Susann’s son, Guy, was diagnosed with autism shortly after birth and, when he was three years old, Dr. Bender convinced Susann and her husband that Guy could be successfully treated with electroshock therapy. Guy returned home from Bender’s care a nearly lifeless child. Susann later told people that Bender had “destroyed” her son. Guy has been confined to institutions since his treatment.
To their credit, some of Dr. Bender’s colleagues considered her use of electroshock on children “scandalous,” but few colleagues spoke out against her, a situation still today common among those in the medical profession….
About the same time Dr. Bender was conducting her electroshock experiments, she was also widely experimenting on autistic and schizophrenic children with what she termed other “treatment endeavors.” These included use of a wide array of psycho-pharmaceutical agents, several provided to her by the Sandoz Chemical Co. in Basel, Switzerland, as well as Metrazol, sub-shock insulin therapy, amphetamines and anticonvulsants. Metrazol was a trade name for pentylenetetrazol, a drug used as a circulatory and respiratory stimulant. High doses cause convulsions, as discovered in 1934 by the Hungarian-American neurologist and psychiatrist Ladislas J. Meduna….
Here it should be noted that, during the cold war years, CIA and Army Counter-Intelligence Corps (CIC) interrogators, working as part of projects Bluebird and Artichoke, sometimes injected large amounts of Metrazol into selected enemy or Communist agents for the purposes of severely frightening other suspected agents, by forcing them to observe the procedure. The almost immediate effects of Metrazol are shocking for many to witness: subjects will shake violently, twisting and turning. They typically arch, jerk and contort their bodies and grimace in pain. With Metrazol, as with electroshock, bone fractures – including broken necks and backs – and joint dislocations are not uncommon, unless strong sedatives are administered beforehand….
CIC interrogators working in Germany would be assisted in their use of interrogation drugs by several “former” Nazi scientists recruited by the CIA and US State Department as part of Project Paperclip. By early 1952, the CIC’s Rough Boys would routinely use Metrazol during interrogations, as well as LSD, mescaline and conventional electroshock units….
Dr. Bender Discovers LSD
In 1955 and1956, Dr. Bender began hearing glowing accounts about the potential of LSD for producing remarkable results in children suffering mental disorders, including autism and schizophrenia. Bender’s earlier work with electroshock therapy had brought her into contact with several other prominent physicians who, at the time, were covert contractors with the CIA’s MK/ULTRA and Artichoke projects. Primary among these physicians were Drs. Harold A. Abramson, Paul Hoch, James B. Cattell, Joel Elkes, Max Fink, Harris Isbell and Alfred Hubbard. Some of these names may be familiar to readers. Dr. Abramson, a noted allergist who surreptitiously worked for both the US Army and CIA since the late 1940s, was the physician Frank Olson was taken to see, shortly before his murder in New York City in November 1953. About a year earlier, Drs. Hoch and Cattell were responsible for injecting unwitting New York State Psychiatric Institute patient Harold Blauer with a massive dose of mescaline that killed him. Dr. Elkes was one of the earliest physicians in Europe to experiment with LSD, having requested samples of the drug from Sandoz Chemical Co. in 1949. Elkes was a close associate of Dr. Abraham Wikler, who worked closely with Dr. Harris Isbell at the now-closed Lexington, Kentucky, prison farm, where hundreds of already drug-addicted inmates were given heroin in exchange for their participation in LSD and mescaline experiments underwritten by the CIA and Pentagon. Elkes worked closely with the CIA, Pentagon and Britain’s MI6 on drug experiments in England and the United States.
Dr. Fink, who was greatly admired by Bender, is considered the godfather of electroshock therapy in the United States. In the early 1950s and beyond, Fink was a fully cleared CIA Project Artichoke consultant. In 1951, CIA officials under the direction of Paul Gaynor and Morse Allen of the agency’s Security Research Service (SRS) that oversaw Artichoke, worked closely with Fink in New York City in efforts to thoroughly explore the merits of electroshock techniques for interrogations. The CIA was especially interested in the use of standard electroshock machines in producing amnesia, inducing subjects to talk and making subjects more prone to hypnotic control. According to one CIA document, Fink told officials “an individual could gradually be reduced through the use to electroshock treatment to the vegetable level.”….
Other physicians whom Dr. Bender consulted about the effects of LSD on children were Drs. Ronald A. Sandison, Thomas M. Ling and John Buckman. These three worked in England at both the Chelsea Clinic in London and Potwick Hospital in Worcestershire, outside of London. Sandison is credited with having been the first person to bring LSD into England, this in 1952 after he met Albert Hofmann in Basle, Switzerland, at the Sandoz Chemical laboratories. Hofmann handed Sandison a box of around 600 ampules, each containing 100 micrograms of LSD. Back in England, Sandison shared his psychedelic bounty with associates Drs. Ling and Buckman. Before the year was out, Sandison also turned Hubbard on to LSD, guiding Hubbard through his first trip. Sandison also began a new treatment program at the Gothic-looking Potwick facility that he dubbed Psycholytic Therapy. His program’s patients were mostly schizophrenics. In 1958, an LSD treatment unit was established at Potwick. Over the years, it has been reported that the CIA, MI6 and the Macy Foundation secretly helped finance the unit. Dr. Elkes helped by raising about $75,000 for the unit’s operation. For the next ten years the unit administered over 15,000 doses of LSD to about 900 patients….
Dr. Bender’s LSD Experiments on Children
Shortly after deciding to initiate her own LSD experiments on children, Bender attended a conference sponsored by a CIA front group, the Josiah Macy Foundation. The conference focused on LSD research and featured Dr. Harold A. Abramson as a presenter. In 1960, Abramson conducted his own LSD experiments on a group of six children ranging in age from five to 14 years of age. A few short months after the Macy Foundation conference, Dr. Bender was notified that her planned LSD experiments would be partially and surreptitiously funded by the Society for the Investigation of Human Ecology (SIHE), another CIA front group then located in Forest Hills, New York. The Society, headed by James L. Monroe, a former US Air Force officer who had worked on top-secret psychological warfare and propaganda projects, oversaw about 55 top-secret experiments underwritten by the CIA. These projects involved LSD, ESP, black magic, astrology, psychological warfare, media manipulation, and other subjects. Apparently, Bender’s work with children and LSD raised some concerns at the CIA’s Technical Services Division (TSD). A 1961 TSD memo written to Monroe questioned the “operational benefits of Dr. Bender’s work as related to children and LSD,” and requested to be kept “closely appraised of the possible links between Dr. Bender’s project and those being conducted under separate MK/ULTRA funding at designated prisons in New York and elsewhere.”
In 1960, Dr. Bender launched her first experiments with LSD and children. They were conducted within the Children’s Unit, Creedmoor State Hospital in Queens, New York. The LSD she used was supplied by Dr. Rudolph P. Bircher of the Sandoz Pharmaceutical Company. (Dr. Bircher also provided Bender with UML-491, also a Sandoz-produced product, very much like LSD but sometimes “dreamier” in effect and longer lasting.) Her initial group of young subjects consisted of 14 children diagnosed schizophrenic, all under the age of 11…..
Two held, racket in human trafficking busted
TNN, Aug 11, 2010 LUCKNOW: The crime branch of the Lucknow police claimed to have busted a racket in human trafficking in the state capital on Monday night and arrested two of its kingpin. Operating through a wide network of agents spread across the country and neighbouring Nepal, the gang reportedly lured over 200 poor girls and boys and sold them in West Asian countries.
These boys and girls have been sent to almost all the West Asian countries — Riyadh in Saudi Arabia being the favoured destination.
USA Swimming Hit With Another Sexual Abuse Lawsuit
Former Olympic Hopeful Swimmer Says California Coach Began Molesting Her at Age 15 By MEGAN CHUCHMACH August 11, 2010 In a sexual abuse scandal that continues to escalate, a new lawsuit against USA Swimming alleges the organization had knowledge of sexual misconduct by a California swim coach and continued to allow him to coach children.
The suit was filed by Jancy Thompson, a former Olympic hopeful who alleges that her former swim coach Norm Havercroft at West Valley swim club in San Jose, CA began sexually molesting her when she was 15-years-old. Also named as defendants are Havercroft, West Valley, and Pacific Swimming, the regional swim organization under USA Swimming….
Today’s lawsuit is the fifth facing USA Swimming in alleged sexual misconduct cases. Allard is also representing another plaintiff in a separate lawsuit against USA Swimming, a victim of former San Jose-area swim coach Andy King, who was sentenced in January to 40 years in prison for decades of abuse perpetrated against young swimmers.
Vatican pleased US plaintifs seek to dismiss case By ALESSANDRA RIZZO (AP) 8/10/10
VATICAN CITY — The Vatican said Tuesday it was satisfied that three men who had sought to hold the Vatican liable in an American court for sexual abuse by Roman Catholic priests have decided to abandon the case. The Kentucky case was being closely watched as the clerical abuse scandal swirls around the Holy See. Lawsuits naming top Vatican officials were also filed recently in U.S. courts in Wisconsin and Oregon….The three plaintiffs filed a motion on Monday asking a federal judge in Louisville, Kentucky, to dismiss their claims.
Their attorney, William McMurry, said he was seeking to end the case because of an earlier court ruling that recognized the Vatican’s immunity and the failure to turn up new plaintiffs to add to the lawsuit who haven’t yet been involved in a Catholic clergy abuse case. The judge must still rule on whether the case can be dismissed, but attorneys on both sides say it has virtually ended. The lawsuit had been filed in 2004 by the three men abused by priests in the Louisville diocese. It was considered the first in the U.S. to make it to the stage of determining whether victims had a negligence claim against the Vatican. The lawsuit argued in part that U.S. bishops should be considered employees or officials of the Holy See. The Vatican has argued that its U.S. bishops act independently, control their own budgets and are not employees of the Holy See.

“Understanding Nazi Influence in Ritual Abuse”
Alik of the OwlClan
Many survivors suspect that the ideologies under which they were abused had Nazi components. Some have hazy memories, other are sure that their perpetrators belonged to neo-Nazi white supremacist groups. Most of the literature, however, focuses on satanic cults and it is hard to fit experiences of Nazi abuse into a satanic framework. Memories, therefore, can be poorly understood and seem to lack cohesion.
Alik has been researching Nazi beliefs, important dates, and symbols for well over ten years. Her findings have helped her understand her own experience and have provided a framework for her own healing. The Nazi dates on our ritual calendar are thanks to her. In this Webinar, she will share much more of her hard-earned knowledge.

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
“The experiments were part of a larger CIA program called MK-ULTRA, which also 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.”
Woman wants to launch lawsuit over ‘brainwashing’ 1/7/07 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,” Huard told The Canadian Press. On and off over 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….The ordeal came at the hands of Dr. Ewen 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. As director of the institute until 1964, Cameron conducted a range of experiments, often without the knowledge or permission of patients. Cameron gave patients LSD and subjected them to massive and multiple electroshock treatments. Some underwent sleep deprivation or total sensory deprivation. Others were kept in drug-induced comas for months on end while speakers under their pillows broadcasts messages for up to 16 hours a day. The experiments were part of a larger CIA program called MK-ULTRA, which also 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. The CIA eventually settled a class-action lawsuit by test subjects, including Huard, and the Canadian government ordered a judicial report into Cameron’s experiments.” http://www.ctv.ca/servlet/ArticleNews/print/CTVNews/20070107/brainwashing_lawsuit_070107/20070107/?hub=Canada&subhub=PrintStory
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.

On August 22, 1977, John C. Sims, an attorney, and Sidney M. Wolfe, M.D., the director of the Public Citizen Health Research Group, filed a request with the Central Intelligence Agency seeking certain information about MKULTRA. Invoking the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. ßß 552, Sims and Wolfe sought the grant proposals and contracts awarded under the MKULTRA program and the names of the institutions and individuals that had performed research.149 SUBPROJECTS / 80 INSTITUTIONS / 185 PRIVATE RESEARCHERS” Between 1953 and 1966, the Central Intelligence Agency financed a wide-ranging project, code-named MKULTRA, concerned with ‘the research and development of chemical, biological, and radiological materials capable of employment in clandestine operations to control human behavior.’ The program consisted of some 149 subprojects which the Agency contracted out to various universities, research foundations, and similar institutions. At least 80 institutions and 185 private researchers participated. Because the Agency funded MKULTRA indirectly, many of the participating individuals were unaware that they were dealing with the Agency”. Id. 161-162.
III. ORLIKOW VS UNITED STATES – CIA SETTLEMENT OF SOME CLAIMS
One researcher known to have been funded by the CIA’s front organization, the Society for the Investigation of Human Ecology, was Dr. Ewen Cameron.
* Ewen Cameron and the Allan Memorial Institute – Subproject Subproject 68 funded by CIA from March 18, 1957 to June 30, 1960
Without conceding liability, in 1988 the CIA agreed to pay $750,000 to settle a case brought on behalf of nine plaintiffs who were subjected to federally funded mind control experiments sponsored by the CIA and conducted by prominent psychiatrist Ewen Cameron, M.D. The experiments included heavy does of LSD, electroshock and psychic driving. Beyond Nuremburg, ABA Journal March 1997, p.26.
* What the Senate Congressional Record says of the CIA funded experiments conducted by Cameron under MKULTRA
Information on Cameron’s experiments and the CIA’s effort to stonewall settlement of the legal case filed by nine of Cameron’s victims is contained in the Senate Congressional Record:
Orlikow v. U.S. Cite as 682 F.S. 77 (D.D.C. 1988) Mrs. David Orlikow, et al., Plaintiffs, V. UNITED STATES of America, Defendant. Civ. A. No. 80-3163. U.S. District Court, District of Columbia. 1/19/88 “The facts submitted in this case are labyrinthine and generally not disputed. The pivotal issue, however, pertaining to whether Dr. Cameron’s research was medically sound therapy or experimentation, is plainly in dispute. In their Amended Complaint the plaintiffs allege, (1) negligent failure of supervision and control over CIA employees, (2) negligent and reckless funding of hazardous experiments, (3) liability for CIA funding of medical malpractice…A brief overview of the case will provide the context in which this action arose…In 1955, the CIA set up a secret front organization, known as the Society for the Investigation of Human Ecology (SIHE), to fund further studies. CIA employee, Dr. John Gittinger and Dr. Wolff from Cornell, assisted in the program formation. Approximately a year later, Dr. Gittinger read an article, published in the American Journal of Psychiatry, written by Dr. Ewen Cameron from the Allen Memorial Institute of Psychiatry, and entitled Psychic Driving…The article prompted him to invite Dr. Cameron to submit an application for SIHE research funds…On March 4, 1957, the CIA approved the Cameron grant as MKULTRA Subproject 68 for the period of time from March 18, 1957 to June 30, 1960.” http://www.michael-robinett.com/private/orli-01.htm and linked pages
Lawsuit paints LSD experiment as journey to the mind’s frontier by Jim Bronskill and Mike Blanchfield – Southam Newspapers Ottawa – “To Dr. Ewen Cameron, Canada’s prisons seemed like a logical place to conduct experiments on what strange new drugs could do to the human mind. In 1953, the McGill University psychiatrist wrote to the second in command of Canada’s prison service to see if he had any insights into “the pharmacological, psychological and surgical suppression or obliteration of certain functions of behaviour as a research tool.” http://groups.yahoo.com/group/psnews/message/370
LSD “guinea pig” wins key court victories – By JIM BRONSKILL and MIKE BLANCHFIELD Southam Newspapers OTTAWA – “The federal government and a former prison psychologist have confessed to battery and negligence for giving LSD to a teenaged inmate in the 1960s. The admission by the government and psychologist Mark Eveson in Ontario’s Superior Court of Justice is a key victory for former prisoner Dorothy Proctor in her three-year battle for compensation. A total of 23 female inmates were administered LSD as part of a 1961 study at the now-defunct federal Prison for Women in Kingston, Ont. At 18 and serving a three-year robbery sentence, Proctor received at least one dose of the powerful hallucinogen in a 1.5-metre-by-2.5-metre windowless basement segregation cell, lit by a single bulb with only a mattress and a hole in which to pass bodily waste. In 1998, Proctor sued the government and former Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) officials for giving her the drug, saying it has caused brain damage and terrifying hallucinations.”
National Post 6/10/04 BRAINWASHING VICTIM WINS $100,000 RULING – Montreal clinic experimented with electroshock by Jeff Heinrich “A woman has been awarded $100,000 in compensation after receiving controversial electroshock treatment in a Montreal psychiatric institute in 1953. “I’m stunned,” Gail Kastner, 70, said yesterday. After some reflection she added: “I’m pleased and I’m numb.” The shock treatment turned the then 19 year old honours student into a woman who sucked her thumb, talked like a baby, demanded to be fed from a bottle and urinated on the floor. She was ostracised by her affluent family and ended up living in poverty. Ms. Kastner was left out of a 1994 federal compensation package for other victims of brainwashing because she was deemed to have undergone less intense treatmet that had fewer long-term effects. Now, a Federal Court judge has reversed that decision and awarded her $100,000, the same Ottawa granted a decade ago to 77 other victims of Dr. Ewen Cameron, the director of the Allan Memorial Institute in Montreal.
In 2000, Ms. Kastner sued the Allan Memorial for $4.2 million, but lost. She tried to appeal, but with no success. The federal compensation doesn’t nearly equal what she could have won. “It begs the question: if I’m awarded now, why was I turned down in my lawsuit?” said Ms. Kastner, who lives alone on a guaranteed income supplement of $1000 a month. 253 of Mr. Cameron’s other patients also had their claims rejected. Carried out from 1950 to 1965, Mr. Cameron’s now-discredited”de-patterning” program of massive electroshock therapy and drug-induced sleep was funded by the CIA and Canada’s Health Department….In 1953, Ms. Kastner was a 19 year old honours student from a wealthy Montreal family. Suffering from mild depression and anxiety, she was admitted to the Allan Memorial twice for short stays and given electroshock treatments – 63 in all. She was also put into comas by being injected with insulin and given different drugs to induce sleep. The goal was to “de-pattern” her brain so she could recover and lead a normal life.” http://web.archive.org/web/20031221193346/http://www.tourolaw.edu/2ndCircuit/July98/97-6116.html
Kronisch v United States
“UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE SECOND CIRCUIT REVISED August Term, 1997 (Argued: 1/30/98 Decided: 7/9/98 ) Docket No. 97-6116 GLORIA KRONISCH, Executrix of the Estate of Stanley Milton Glickman, Plaintiff-Appellant, v. UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, SIDNEY GOTTLIEB, in his individual and in his official capacities, RICHARD HELMS, in his individual and in his official capacities, and JOHN DOES, unknown agents of the Central Intelligence Agency, Defendants-Appellees. Before: CALABRESI, CABRANES, and HEANEY, Circuit Judges. Appeal from judgment of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York (Kimba M. Wood, Judge), granting summary judgment for defendants. Plaintiff alleges that he is one of the victims of tests conducted by the Central Intelligence Agency in the 1950s in which lysergic acid diethylamide was administered to unsuspecting persons. Affirmed in part, vacated in part, and remanded….granted defendants’ motion for summary judgment on the bases that plaintiff had failed to establish a genuine issue of material fact as to liability, that his claims were time-barred, and that the court lacked personal jurisdiction over Gottlieb and Helms.”
“As described by the Church Committee Report, In order to meet the perceived threat to national security, substantial programs for the testing and use of chemical and biological agents-including projects involving the surreptitious administration of LSD to unwitting nonvolunteer subjects …were conceived, and implemented. These programs resulted in substantial violations of the rights of individuals within the United States.”
“The record shows that Bureau of Narcotics Agent George White, who was asked by Gottlieb in 1952 to work on LSD research for the CIA, see Declaration of Sidney Gottlieb ¶¶ 4 (April 23, 1996) (“Gottlieb Declaration”), conducted LSD experiments on unsuspecting persons in New York City. White may have given LSD to unwitting friends in his New York City apartment in November 1952, and beginning in June 1953 he administered LSD to unsuspecting persons (typically drug informants and prostitutes) with whom he came into contact in his work as a narcotics agent. See Kronisch III, 1997 WL 907994, at *6 n.8… See Hearings Before the Subcommittee on Health and Scientific Research of the Senate Committee on Human Resources on S. 1893, 95th Cong., 1st Sess. 204 (Sept. 20 and 21, 1977) (“Kennedy Committee Hearings”) (testimony of Sidney Gottlieb).”

1977 Senate Hearing on MKULTRA Opening Remarks “Some 2 years ago, the Senate Health Subcommittee heard chilling testimony about the human experimentation activities of the CIA. The Deputy Director of the CIA revealed that over 30 universities and institutions were involved in an “extensive testing and experimentation” program which included covert drug tests on unwitting citizens “at all social levels, high and low, native Americans and foreign.” Several of these tests involved the administration of LSD to “unwitting subjects in social situations.” http://web.archive.org/web/20030625045041/http://www.pjproject.org/Mkultra/project.html
http://www.apa.org/monitor/nov02/pc.html Mind control: psychological reality or mindless rhetoric? “Mind control is the process by which individual or collective freedom of choice and action is compromised by agents or agencies that modify or distort perception, motivation, affect, cognition and/or behavioral outcomes. It is neither magical nor mystical, but a process that involves a set of basic social psychological principles. Conformity, compliance, persuasion, dissonance, reactance, guilt and fear arousal, modeling and identification are some of the staple social influence ingredients well studied in psychological experiments and field studies. In some combinations, they create a powerful crucible of extreme mental and behavioral manipulation when synthesized with several other real-world factors, such as charismatic, authoritarian leaders, dominant ideologies, social isolation, physical debilitation, induced phobias, and extreme threats or promised rewards that are typically deceptively orchestrated, over an extended time period in settings where they are applied intensively….has also been reported that the CIA put into practice nearly 150 projects–collectively termed MKULTRA–to develop various forms of exotic mind control, including the use of LSD and hypnosis.”

At that time MK was frequently used as a prefix if there was a military application. ULTRA was the codeword used by British Intelligence for their WWII super secret project which was able to decode German cryptographic messages. Perhaps the originator of this codeword considered that the work being done with mind control was also that super secret.” page 150 “In the fall of 1959 the CIA shuffled people around, hired an assortment of researchers in the field of mind control, and finalized a long range plan for expanding its mind control technology….office was to coordinate with Covert Operations to find a mission which would be ideal for testing a programmed Agent….idea of using Gene Stone as the first subject remained unquestioned. This was now near the end of the Eisenhower administration, and despite a number of blunders, the CIA was riding a high in prestige and funding. All involved in planning were firmly confident that by 1965 they would be ready to deliver a programmed Eugene Stone to Covert Operations.”

Collections The Coldest Warrior – 12/16/01 – “As the CIA’s sorcerer, Gottlieb had also attempted to raise assassination to an art form. Out of his labs had come a poisoned handkerchief designed to do in a Libyan colonel, a bacteriological agent for a Congolese leader and debilitating potions intended for Cuba’s Fidel Castro. (None of these toxins are known to have found their mark.) Hounded by reporters, congressional investigators and his victims, Gottlieb had virtually vanished from Washington in the mid-1970s…But Olson’s death didn’t end CIA-funded experiments with LSD… according to records made public in the mid-’70s, the funding and scope of that research expanded.

Are you one of the thousands of people used as a human guinea pig by your own government during the Cold War? A Nation Betrayed is the culmination of documentation obtained from over 18,000 pages of declassified documents and testimony from survivors of these experiments. Rutz’s book gives us a first hand view of a government in such fear of communism that it loses sight of the safety of it’s own people. To counter the threat of communism, the CIA conspires to build the perfect spy from our country’s innocent children. After being imported for their knowledge and expertise, some of the same Nazi scientists and doctors who performed grizzly experiments carried out in the death camps during World War II join forces with the U.S Government in these efforts. Her book walks us through her horrifying journey of experimentation and training by her CIA torturers beginning at the age of four as part of the government sanctioned Bluebird/Artichoke and MKULTRA Projects. Using electroshock, drugs, hypnosis, sensory deprivation, and insidious trauma, our government performs Mind Control experiments on her and other innocent children. The objective is creation of a Manchurian Candidate-a sleeper assassin-as well as instilling skills in ESP and remote viewing.
A Nation Betrayed also shows how our own tax dollars paid doctors and hospitals to conduct Cold War research with chemical and biological warfare materials and radiation. Why hasn’t our government been held accountable not only for these atrocities, but for dumping chemicals at sea, testing chemicals on unsuspecting U.S. populations, administering LSD to unwitting soldiers, feeding radioactive cereal to retarded children, and other unthinkable acts in the name of national security?
A Nation Betrayed is a must read to educate the Nation about these abuses, because our silence conveys a powerful message to those in power. Without the necessary changes, history is doomed to repeat itself.

In the United States, the American public have had the knowledge of the CIA’s Top Secret Program, MKUltra, and its experimentation in Mind Control on adult volunteers and unwitting subjects. Now, we have a well-documented, verifiable account of not one, but two childrens’ long untold stories of being CHILD subjects of Project MKUltra.
In the new book, “Secret Weapons: Two Sisters’ Terrifying True Story of Sex, Spies and Sabotage,” we find the horrific, yet, informative narratives of Cheryl and Lynn Hersha, as they describe tortuous programming beginning at the tender ages of four and six years, and continuing into adulthood. Their harrowing accounts are supported by the fact-finding, breakthrough research of Dale Griffis, PhD., (a private investigator best known for his 25 yrs. of work in Ritual Abuse), and investigative journalist, Ted Schwarz, (who has authored over 100 books, countless magazine articles and other written media, including works on Dissociative Identity Disorder, True Crime Stories, and authorized biographies.) A must-read for all who believe in the inherent worth of every human being, and the triumph of the human spirit over the worst evils man can perpetuate against the very young it should be compelled to protect, be it by morality, ethical conduct, law, or common human decency. A riveting, heart-wrenching expose whose time has come.
Quotes from the book: “By the time Cheryl Hersha came to the facility, knowledge of multiple personality was so complete that doctors understood how the mind separated into distinct ego states, each unaware of the other. First, the person traumatized had to be both extremely intelligent and under the age of seven, two conditions not yet understood though remaining consistent as factors. The trauma was almost always of a sexual nature…” p. 52
“The government researchers, aware of the information in the professional journals, decided to reverse the process (of healing from hysteric dissociation). They decided to use selective trauma on healthy children to create personalities capable of committing acts desired for national security and defense.” p. 53 – 54
The book also contains a variety of documents on mk-ultra and different projects as well as reports to the Presidential Committee on Radiation and Mind Control, including information on the five Canadians’ lawsuit against the U.S. Government.
Government Research into ESP & Mind Control – By T. Porter – “Hypnosis, drugs, and psycho-surgery; separately and combined, were the tools of this quest for the ultimate truth serum on the one hand, and the capability to create an agent who could not have his or her mission tortured out of them, or even be aware that they were carrying secret information given to them in an altered state of consciousness. More and more sophisticated drugs were experimented with, such as LSD, Ketamine, and Psilocybine.” http://www.freedomdomain.com/mindcontrol/mkultra01.html
26 July 1963 – MEMORANDUM FOR: Director of Central Intelligence -SUBJECT: Report of Inspection of MKULTRA – “The next phase of the MKULTRA program involves physicians, toxicologists, and other specialists in mental, narcotics, and general hospitals and in prisons, who are provided the products and findings of the basic research projects and proceed with intensive testing on human subjects.” This may be heavy for survivors to read. http://cryptome.org/mkultra-0003.htm

United States District Court Northern District of California Wayne A. Ritchie, Plaintiff, V. United States of America, Defendant. No. C 00-03940 MHP MEMORANDUM & ORDER Motion to Dismiss/ Motion for Summary Judgment “As explained in this court’s July 12, 2001 Memorandum and Order, plaintiff, a former Deputy United States Marshal, alleges that he was unwittingly given food or drinks that were laced with lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) or another psychoactive drug while attending a holiday party. Following this intoxication, and after visiting several bars, plaintiff initiated an armed robbery. Plaintiff was then taken into police custody where he wrote a letter of resignation. Plaintiff alleges that he was a victim of a national federal program called “MKULTRA” for the research and development of drugs to alter human behavior. Plaintiff maintains that he “first suspected that he might have been surreptitiously drugged” when he read Dr. Stanley Gottlieb’s obituary in the newspaper on March 15, 1999. Compl. ¶ 23. He found additional support for his suspicion in April 1999 when he read a diary entry of George White, an agent of the Bureau of Narcotics and allegedly the operating head of the CIA’s “mind-altering program” in San Francisco.” “”Defendant contends that plaintiff’s claims are barred by laches. To prevail, defendant must demonstrate that plaintiff “inexcusably delayed the pursuit of [his] claim,” causing prejudice. United States v. Marolf, 173 F.3d 1213, 1218 (9th Cir. 1999). For the reasons discussed above, defendant has failed to prove that plaintiff knew or should have known that his injury was caused by LSD before he read Dr. Gottlieb’s obituary in March 1999. Absent this proof, the court cannot find plaintiff’s delay “inexcusable.” Defendant’s motion is denied.”

Chief U.S. District Judge Marilyn Hall Patel ruled in favor of Wayne Ritchie, citing an apparent admission from a former CIA operative. “I drugged guys involved in about 10, 12 (instances),” former federal narcotics agent Ira Feldman, who worked for the CIA’s Project MKULTRA, told Ritchie’s lawyer in a sworn deposition in February 2003. “I didn’t do any follow-up. … You just back away and let them worry like this nitwit, Ritchie.” Ritchie, 75, believes he may have been a guinea pig for the CIA’s MKULTRA project, in which LSD and other drugs were given to hundreds of unsuspecting Americans during the Cold War. Ritchie believes his drinks at a 1957 office Christmas party attended by a federal agent involved in the project were spiked. The government denies drugging Ritchie…” http://www.sacbee.com/

“Statement to Presidential Report on Radiation, Claudia S. Mullen, March 15, 1995.
I was born in 1950 and by the age of 7; I thought I was already accustomed to being an abused child. I was wrong. Nothing could have prepared me for what was to follow.
Between the years of 1957 and 1984, I became a pawn in a government scheme, whose ultimate goal was mind control and ultimately to create the “perfect spy”. All through the use of chemicals, radiation, drugs, hypnosis, electric shock, isolation in large tubs of hot or cold water, sleep deprivation, brainwashing; and verbal, physical and emotional abuse. By the time I was 9, I was also being sexually abused and humiliated as a coercive technique.
I was exploited unwittingly for nearly three decades of my life and the only explanations given were: “That the end justifies the means”and “I was serving my country in their bold effort to fight communism”.I can only summarize my circumstances by saying, they took an already abused 7 year old child and compounded my suffering beyond belief. The saddest part is- I know for a fact; that I was not alone! There were countless other children in my same situation and there was no one to help us….until now.
I have already submitted as much information as possible; including project names, dates, subproject numbers, names of those people and agencies involved; functions and types of subjects being used. I am able to report this to you in such graphic detail; because of both my photographic memory and the arrogance of the doctors involved, who were certain they would always control my mind and my behavior. The process of recalling these atrocities certainly not an easy task; nor is it without some danger to my self and my family. However, I sincerely hope you will hear me out and have read the backup documents. To me….the risk is worth taking.
Dr. L. Wilson Greene, who claimed to have received 50 million dollars to his army chemical and radiological corporation, as part of TSD (Technical Science Division) of the CIA; once described to my monitor, Dr. Charles Brown, “That children were used as subjects because they were more fun to work with and cheaper too. They needed lower profile subjects than soldiers or government people, so only young willing females will do….besides” he said, “I like scaring them…they and the agency think I’m a God…creating subjects and experiments for whatever deviant purposes SID (Dr. Sidney Gottlieb) and James (Dr. James Hamilton) can think up.
In 1958, I was to be tested they told me by some important doctors coming from a place called the “Society” (The Human Ecological Society). I was told to brave and cooperate though the tests might hurt. I was also instructed not to look at anyone’s face too hard and to ignore names. This was a secret project and I would be asked a lot of questions; then given “shots, X-rays and a little jolt of electricity….but to be brave and all those things would help me forget”. Naturally, as most children do, I did the opposite and remembered as much as I could!
A Dr. John Gittenger tested me and Dr. Cameron gave me the shocks and Dr. Greene the X-rays. Then, I was told by Sid (Dr. Gottlieb),”I was ripe for the big A” – meaning artichoke, I learned later. By the time I left to go home, just like every other time from then on, I would recall nothing of my tests or the different doctors. I would only remember what explanations Dr. Robert G. Heath (of Tulane Medical School) gave me for the odd bruises, needle marks, burns on my head and fingers and even the genital soreness. I had no reason to believe otherwise. Already, they had begun to control my mind!
By the next year when I turned 9; I was sent to a place in Maryland called Deep Creek Caverns to learn how “to sexually please men”. I was taught also how to coerce them into talking about themselves and then I had to prove my accurate recall. Richard Helms, Dr Gottlieb, George White and Morse Allen all planned on entrapping as many officials, agency targets, heads of academic institutions and foundations. Later if the funding started to dwindle or the head of the agency – John McCone decided he could no longer tolerate children being tortured, abused and shot full of biologicals and radiation; then he would be forced to continue the projects at all cost. I was to become a regular little “spy” for them after that summer, entrapping many unwitting men, with the use of hidden cameras. I was only 9 when this began.
Twice I overheard conversations concerning a place or part of the agency called ORD (Office of Research and Development) run by Dr. Greene, Dr. Stephen Aldrich, Martin Orne and Morse Allen. Once a crude remark was made by Dr. Gottlieb about a possible leak over in New Orleans East, involving a large group of retarded children who werebeing given massive doses of radiation. He asked, why Wilson was “so worried about a few retarded kids? After all, they would be the least likely kids to spill the beans!”
The second time I heard Dr. Martin Orne, who was the “director of the scientific office” and later changed to Institute for Experimental Research, (in order to keep more funding coming from different sources for the radiation and mind control experiments). Dr. Orne suggested” stepping up the amounts of all the stressors used on the subjects, such as chemical, biologicals, increasing the volts and length of the electric shock treatments, hypnosis and sexual humiliation” (the blackmail portion of the projects). He stated, “it needed to be done faster, then get rid of the subjects, as it was asking for “us” to come back and haunt them, by remembering.” Dr. Heath at first refused but more of the doctors agreed; although some seemed sincerely horrified at what they either witnessed or heard about.
Dr. Orne demanded that “executive action” be taken. When one of my “splits”; as they referred to my dissociated personalities, asked him (Dr. Orne) what “executive action meant?” ; he replied, “it means we get rid of the little bitch….you! Don’t you get it? You simply disappear, John (Dulles) can order that at any time; and even Mac (John McCone) would never even know what happened to you!”
There is much more I could tell you about government sponsored research including; project names, subproject numbers and the people involved with each. Also, I could include the facilities used, humiliating tests and other forms of torture/abuse utilized. However, I think I’ve given more than enough information to recommend further investigation of all mind control research projects – especially as they involve so much use of radiation.
I would love nothing more than to say I had dreamed all this up and need just to forget it…but that would be a tragic mistake! Not only that – it would be a lie. All these atrocities did occur to me; and to countless other children. And all under the guise of “defending our country”!
It is because of the cumulative effects of exposure to the radiation, chemicals, drugs, torture and subsequent mental and physical distress; that I have been robbed of the ability to work; and even bear children of my own! It is blatantly obvious that none of this was needed; nor should it have ever been allowed to take place at all.
The only means we have to seek out the awful truth and bring it to light (no matter how disgusting) is by opening whatever files remain on all the projects; through another Presidential commission. This time it seems the focus should be more on mind control and brainwashing research funded by our own tax dollars!
I believe this once great nation of ours has a right to know just what is fact and what is fiction. It is our greatest protection against the possibility of this ever happening again. If, by some chance, it has continued to this day, it needs to be stopped!
Now, I leave this matter in your capable hands. I can offer no more than what I have given you today…the truth! Thank you for your time.
