National Geographic: CIA Secret Experiments & relevant interview

"The CIA launches a highly classified, top secret research program into the covert use of biological and chemical agents. In simulated attacks on enemy populations, entire cities in America are contaminated with bacteria, exposing millions of Americans to germ warfare. But the real focus of the research is on mastering the art of mind control. Psychiatrists at top academic institutions work under secret contract with the agency. Psychiatric patients, prisoners, even unwitting members of the public are exposed to a startling array of experiments designed to facilitate interrogations, induce amnesia and program in new behavior. Every psychological technique is explored, including hypnosis, electroshock therapy and lethal cocktails of drugs. What was the extent of these brainwashing experiments? How did the CIA become involved in such far-reaching and disturbing research?"

Though it sticks to the "official line" of the CIA ( we were not successful, though we destroyed every document) It is still a must see!

CIA Secret Experiments

A must listen interview, with the only attorney for Sirhan Sirhan

Lawrence Teeter

From what I read, when Lawrence Teeter died, it was reported his home was ransacked and his computers stolen.


  1. Aargh! 46 minutes! Maybe if I come down to the cafe after hours I can download it. Otherwise it sounds brilliant.

    Just remembered! New Dave McGowan! Off I go!

  2. hey nobody: I did find it worth watching.

    The stuff the CIA did to ordinary people, was disturbing to say the least.

    Murder included. One of their own.

    Though it is limited to the "official story"

    It is still shocking.

  3. Thanks for the heads up re LC.

    I simply must tape dad and then type it up - the things he has to say about the CIA will knock your socks off!! Perhaps when things are settled, I'll sit him down with a scotch and get to it!!

  4. Interestingly in the interview with Laurence Teeter, the attorney for Sirhan Sirhan.

    He notes that one excuse for Sirhan Sirhans attempted assasination was an already existing condition "paranoid schizophrenia" (sound familiar)that was activated by mirrors and lights at the event.(at 20 minutes into the interview)

    He also recounts Sirhan speaking of the woman , who he had a conversation with prior to the shooting, at the coffee maker, who then led him into the area of the shooting, but then after that sirhan sirhan has no memory at all of what transpired, until he is being wrestled to the ground.

    Is anyone beside me thinking of Vince Li ?

  5. Hey Pen,

    That was my gag before. Was that chick wearing a polka dot dress, ala Sirhan Sirhan? Interesting how she got wiped from the story.

    Buffy, Get to it! I'd love to read it. I expect I'll read it to my old man too to see if it rings any bells.

    And Pen, my old man was military who had brushes with spooks and so was Buffy's. Are you the odd man out here? What kind of crummy Laurel Canyon is this?

  6. I am most definitely the odd man out.
    No military parentage at all.
    I guess you and buffy are true "laurel canyonites" lol!
    me, I am a usurper.

    I didn't get that at the time when you asked about the girl in the polka dot dress, now I do.

    Did you listen to the Teeter talk?

    As that guy spoke I could not stop thinking about the trials featured in the Programmed to kill book,with
    shoddy 'defence', planted evidence and more, did you read it all yet?

    God it is one dam good book!

  7. LOL Nobody!! Hey mate - you let the cat out of the bag! How can now be Penny's handlers! It's so obvious!!

  8. Sorry Pen,

    Haven't gotten round to downloading it yet. Imagine I'm on a modem line. It's like that.

    Otherwise we'll need a secret password. How about 'ingrown toenail'? And don't tell anyone. It's a secret.

  9. In a hushed tone "ingrown toenail"
    I like it, it causes one to have a pain just thinking about it.


    though thankfully I have never had one.
