After I was done cursing those "school girls" for scooping an excellent story on the CIA's experimentation on children. I narrowed my search down to one individual in that story, and lo and behold up pops this massive article on Ethics of CIA and Military Contracting by Psychiatrists and Psychologists
This had the DSM's latest changes ringing in my ears....who are these so called changes really benefiting???
I have digressed briefly, but relevantly, so let's get back to Drugs the CIA, Psychiatrists and Military Contracting
There have been extensive, systematic violations of human rights by American psychiatrists, psychologists, and neurosurgeons throughout the second half of the twentieth century. These violations have occurred at the leading medical schools with funding from the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and the U.S. military.
There was extensive involvement of psychiatrists and psychologists in CIA and military mind control experimentation at the major medical schools in North America throughout the second half of the 20th century. Participation of psychiatrists and psychologists in ongoing, classified mind control programs, for instance, the Behavioral Science Consultation Teams operating at Guantanamo Bay, must involve continued systematic violation of human rights.
THE HISTORY OF LSD IN NORTH AMERICA
The first major manufacturer and distributor of LSD in North America was Eli Lilly Company, manufacturer of Prozac. LSD was discovered by Albert Hoffman, a chemist at the Sandoz pharmaceutical company in Switzerland, in 1943 (Lee & Shlain, 1985). In the early 1950s, according to documents obtained from the CIA through the Freedom of Information Act, the CIA was concerned that the Russians were trying to buy the entire world ' s supply of LSD (Ross, 2006). Both sides were using the drug for mind control, brainwashing, and interrogation.The CIA wanted to develop a secure domestic supply of LSD. In 1953, the CIA therefore signed a $400,000 contract with Eli Lilly Company to manufacture and supply LSD. This was done under Subproject 18 of the CIA ' s MKULTRA mind control program.
The first people to take LSD in North America were psychiatrists, military personnel, and CIA officers. America was introduced to LSD by psychiatrists.
LSD experimentation on soldiers by the U.S. Army continued at least till the late 1970s, according to Senate testimony by army medical personnel. Other drugs first introduced into American culture by CIA psychiatrists include psilocybin and PCP or " angel dust. "
Psychiatrists gave LSD and mescaline to children in massive doses in the 1950s and 1960s. Dr. Lauretta Bender, a child psychiatrist, gave street-level hallucinogenic doses of LSD and mescaline to children aged 5 to 10 years old. Some children received doses daily for weeks, months, or even years at a time.
BRAIN ELECTRODE IMPLANTS
Psychiatrists and neurosurgeons at Harvard, Yale, and Tulane implanted electrodes in the brains of children and adults on contract to the U.S. Army and the Office of Naval Research. At Yale, Dr. Jose Delgado (1955, 1959, 1979) developed a technique for stimulating the implanted brain electrodes using remote radio transmitters. He performed these experiments on children as young as 11 years of age, and also on cats and monkeys
Dr. Louis Jolyon West was a MKULTRA contractor with top secret clearance . He attempted to set up a center for the study of violence while he was chairman of the Department of Psychiatry at UCLA. He recruited Dr. Frank Ervin, one of the Harvard brain electrode psychiatrists (Mark & Ervin, 1970), to work in his center. The center was never opened due to public protest. One of the potential projects was to insert brain electrodes into violent criminals.
Dr. Delgado (1969) wrote a book called Physical Control of the Mind: Towards a Psycho- Civilized Society. In it he described a utopian society of the future in which an elite squad of mind control doctors controlled the entire populace through implanted brain electrodes.
The brain electrode implant experiments were done for no therapeutic purpose, and were based on unscientific diagnoses and unproven, unscientific treatment methods. They were unethical and harmful. They must have caused permanent brain damage and the complications included brain infections, strokes, and death. There was no meaningful follow-up of subjects. There was no real informed consent. Subjects were not protected by the advice of independent counsel. Subjects were often criminals, orphans, psychiatric patients, drug addicts, or other individuals who could not resist.
Utopian for who? It's is as good a time as any to share a quote from Zbigniew Brzezinski.
You may have read it before? You may not have? If you haven't, read it now-
The technotronic era involves the gradual appearance of a more controlled society. Such a society would be dominated by an elite, unrestrained by traditional values. Soon it will be possible to assert almost continuous surveillance over every citizen and maintain up-to-date complete files containing even the most personal information about the citizen. These files will be subject to instantaneous retrieval by the authorities.A more controlled society? Dominated by an elite unrestrained by traditional value?
Ponder that...and I will get back to the mind control article.
It covers the Manchurian Candidate experimentation. Then goes on to the False Memory Syndrome.
Drs. Orne and Dr. West advised the CIA on how to create iatrogenic multiple personality disorder, and they spoke with, published with, and reviewed the work of other mind control contractors including G. H. Estabrooks. (this is a name that has been mentioned on the blog previously, a master at hypnotism)
Dr. West and Dr. Orne, before their deaths, were both members of the Scientific and Professional Advisory Board of the False Memory Syndrome Foundation, an organization that claims that most, if not all, clinically diagnosed cases of multiple personality disorder are iatrogenic (resulting from the activities of doctors)
The fact that both Dr. West and Dr. Orne were top secret contractors on CIA programs designed to create iatrogenic multiple personality disorder must surely introduce a possibility of bias and vested interest.
Their bias and vested interest could run a number of ways. First- They may wish to take credit for being capable of implanting false memories. As if they were successful at their experimentation. That is one angle.
However, another agenda may be at play. If they were indeed successful at creating Manchurian candidates, or just the conducting of brutal experiments, these doctors and others like them may use the claim of false implanted memories to cover up for the extreme abuses the multitudes of patients suffered at the hands of these so called doctors and their CIA backed, taxpayer funded experimentation. Young children, orphans, mentally incapable persons, abused by the mind control system and the claim that let's the abusive doctors off the hook??
It is not a real memory. It was just implanted by the doctor.
Operation Midnight Climax-
I did an entire post on this one previously
For instance, under MKULTRA, CIA officer George White constructed safe houses in New York and San Francisco that were decorated like brothels. CIA officers watched through one-way mirrors while prostitutes the CIA had hired had sex with men they had picked up at bars. The prostitutes gave the johns LSD without their knowledge. The purpose of the experiments was to determine the effects of LSD on unwitting subjects in a natural setting. Dr. James Hamilton, a Stanford psychiatrist who worked as a CIA contractor under MKSEARCH, participated in these LSD-prostitute experiments.
Unethical mind control experimentation is a political abuse of psychiatry. Under the guise of medical research, human beings have been subjected to unethical experiments for the benefit of the state. This abuse of psychiatry has occurred at all the major medical schools in North America. It has been pervasive and extensive. Many of the leading figures in psychiatry have either participated directly or looked the other way while friends and colleagues received grants and promotions.
So much for the hypocritcal oath, "do no harm"
We can't kid ourselves that this kind of stuff is 'just not happening at this time' or it is 'all in the past'. It isn't! June 19th/2010 I put up an article about Doctors in the employ of the CIA who aid in torture
This article was based on a brand spanking new report that had been released regarding medical professionals, involved in CIA interrogations of terrorism SUSPECTS, engaging in forms of human research and experimentation in violation of medical ethics and domestic and international law.
Nothing has changed.
