   Project Mk-Ultra

 

From 1953 to 1964 the CIA mind control program, conducted experiments on human subjects, that left them mentally unstable for the rest of their life.

These experiments happened in prisons, hospitals, and colleges all over the United States. The CIA began to experiment with LSD (lysergic acid diethylamide) under the direction of agency chemist and poison expert Sidney Gottlieb. MK-Ultra also included experiments with MDMA (ecstasy), mescaline, heroin, barbiturates, methamphetamine and psilocybin (“magic mushrooms”).

The CIA dosed the men with LSD and then—while at times drinking cocktails behind a two-way mirror—watched the drug’s effects on the men’s behavior. The goal was to manipulate them. After the conclusion of the experiments the CIA claimed that they didn’t learn anything. They also destroyed all the files.
