CIA Conducted Mind-Control Tests Up To 1972
The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has uncovered
thousands of “lost” documents which show that its chemical and
biological mind-control experiments on human subjects were conducted as
late as mid-1972.
By The Washington Post
CIA Director Stansfield Turner has maintained that the only sketchy financial
records left in the CIA’s files on its mind-control projects showed human
experimentation was discontinued in 1964.
The newly discovered files–14 folders with about 700 pages of financial
records–indicate that human subjects were experimented on with their knowledge
under the CIA’s Project MK-SEARCH until the project was halted by CIA
Technical Services Director Sidney Gottieb on July 10, 1972.
The boxes contain records of U.S. intelligence operations going back to the days
of the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) in 1943, the CIA spokesman said. The
OSS was the CIA’s predecessor.
They also contained detailed operations files on chemical and biological
experimentation run from 1949 until the mid-1950s under CIA’s code names
Bluebird and Artichoke. Subjects of the experiments included CIA personnel who
were aware of the experiments and foreigners who may not have been, according
to the CIA.
… North Korean officials accused the United States in 1951 of conducting
bacteriological experimentation on captured POWs at Koje Island prison off
South Korea. U.S. officials emphatically denied the charges.
