Article on Government Programs

The following article was sent to us by Carol at Please use caution while reading. It may be triggering.

Project BLUEBIRD/ARTICHOKE was a CIA program involving chemical and biological agents. BLUEBIRD was approved in 1950 to discover a means of conditioning personnel to prevent unauthorized extraction of information from them by known means; investigating the possibility of control of an individual by application of special interrogation techniques; memory enhancement and establishing defensive means for preventing hostile control of Agency personnel. (CIA memorandum to the Select Committee, “Behavioral Drugs and Testing,” 2/11/75)

As a result of interrogations conducted overseas during the project, another goal was added– the evaluation of offensive uses of uncoventional interrogation techniques, including hypnosis and drugs. August 1951 project renamed ARTICHOKE and included in-houses experiments on interrogation techniques, conducted “under medical and security controls which would ensure that no damage was done to individuals who volunteered for the experiments.” (Memorandum from Robert Taylor, O/DD/P to the Assistant Deputy and Chief of the Medical Staff, 3/22/52)

Overseas interrogations utilizing a combination of sodium pentothal and hypnosis after physical and psychiatric examinations of the subjects. The Office of Scientific Intelligence (OSI) led BLUEBIRD/ARTICHOKE efforts. In 1952 overall responsibility for ARTICHOKE was transferred to the Inspection and Security Office(I&SO), predecessor to the present Office of Security. (Memorandum from H. Marshall Chadwell, Assistant Director, Scientific Intelligence, to the Deputy Director/Plans “Project ARTICHOKE,” 8/29/52)

The CIA claims the project ended in 1956, but evidence suggests that the Office of Security and the Office of Medical Services uses of “special interrogation” techniques continued for several years thereafter. (Page 68 Project MKULTRA, The CIA’s Program of Research in Behavioral Modification-CIS-1978-S421-1) also called the Joint Hearing Before the Select Committee on Intelligence and the Subcommittee on Health and Scientific Research of the Committee on Human Resources United States Senate Ninety-Fifth Congress First Session, dated August 3, 1977 and may be obtained from Documents on Demand 1-800-277-2477 but it is not free.

An ARTICHOKE Memo stated that working with the scientists of a foreign country “might be very advantageous” since that government “permitted certain activities which were not permitted by the United States government (i.e. experiments on anthrax, etc.)” (Artichoke Memo dated 6/13/52 taken from page 101 of Project MKULTRA)

Court Case Article

The first half of the following article comes from quotes from

“Plaintiff Michael A. Aquino is a Lieutenant Colonel (LTC) in the United States Army Reserve. His name appears in the title block of a CID report of investigation (ROI) for indecent acts with a child and related offenses. Government Exhibit (G.E.) D at 1-4…. On August 12, 1988, the San Francisco district attorney’s office closed its investigation of child abuse at the Presidio CDC. It filed no charges against plaintiff or anyone else…. After discussing the evidence and reviewing the investigation, the Presidio staff judge advocate, LTC Craig Schwender, opined that probable cause existed to place plaintiff’s name in the title block of the ROA. G.E. D-16 at 113.”

The second half of the article comes from the court document:

From United States District Court For the Eastern District of Virginia – Alexandria division – Michael A. Aquino – plaintiff, civil action v. no 90-1547-a the honorable Michael P. W. Stone – Secretary of the Army, Department of the Army, Washington, D.C., defendant, also serve the Attorney General of the United States….”Facts – 1. Plaintiff, then an active duty Lieutenant Colonel in the United States Army, was titled by the U.S. Army CID, on August 11, 1989 for Conspiracy, Kidnapping, Sodomy, Indecent Acts or Liberties With a Child, Indecent Acts, False Swearing, Intentional Noncompliance With Article 30, Uniform Code of Military Justice, Maltreatment of a Subordinate and Conduct Unbecoming an Officer. 2. Plaintiff sought to amend the titling action and requested that Plaintiff’s name be removed from the title block. 3. The CID granted relief in part and denied relief in part. Plaintiff remains titled for Conspiracy, Kidnapping, Sodomy, Indecent Acts and False Swearing.” …. that “(t)here was sufficient evidence from which the Army decision maker could determine that probable cause existed to believe that [Aquino] committed the offenses” and that therefore the Army’s decisions to create the report and not amend it were not arbitrary or capricious.”

At there is information about a suit filed by Michael and Lilith Aquino against ElectriCiti Inc.(2/19/97), a California Internet Service Provider, claiming negligence and infliction of emotional distress.

Mk-ultra article

The following article shows a possible connection between L. J. West and mk-ultra. Please use caution while reading. It may be very triggering. All accusations are alleged.

I wrote this article partially because I was removed from a list (an “anti-cult” list) on the web because I refused to stop sending data to the list about Dr. West. In my opinion, I had broken no list rules, I sent substantiated data, such as the data below.

The comoderators on the list compared my data and tactics (simply sending urls and quotes) as similar to an alleged well known cult, simply because the same data was used. They refused to acknowledge that the data could have and probably did come from source material that the writers below and the alleged cult probably researched. I explained this to the list, that this was in essence a logical fallacy, a type of propaganda.

In effect, I was censored by my removal from the list. I was asked several times to back up my data with source documents and to even state in the post whether I agreed with the url or not. No one else on this list was required to do this. There were posters that posted pro-false memory articles and they were not asked to verify their data, neither was their data compared to any alleged cults or other groups.

IMO, there was no “freedom of mind” nor speech on this list, at least for those that take the position that mk-ultra existed and that West may have been connected to it. How can we empower people to think for themselves, when we censor those we disagree with?

Below please find urls with info on Project Monarch and Dr. West. This may be triggering for survivors of abuse. The following articles have proof showing the existence of Project Monarch.

From This article is extremely well footnoted with government documents, hearing reports, etc. “”This review of the CIA’s actions in the United States and Canada demonstrates how completely unprincipled was the Agency’s original brainwashing program, as well as its course of legal manoeuvers years later when it was required to answer for its misconduct. The story of the brainwashing suit and the barriers that were overcome before the CIA’s victims were finally compensated, illustrates both the formidable hurdles presented and the unique satisfactions gleaned in a public interest law suit.”


“MEMORANDUM FOR SUBPROJECT 84 On the MKULTRA institutional notification list attached to Brief for Respondents In No. 83-1075 and Brief for Petitioners in No. 83-1249, pp. 1a-10a, Harvard University, Cambridge Massachusetts is listed next to subprojects 84 and 92. John Mark’s states: “Martin Orne’s work for the Agency was described in Subproject 84. He contributed a chapter to the Society-funded book, The Manipulation of Human Behavior, edited by Albert Biderman and Herbert Zimmer (New York: John Wiley & Sons; 1961), pp. 169-215. Financial data on Orne’s Institute for Experimental Psychiatry came from a filing with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Attachment to Form 1023”. Other contributors to this book include Lawrence Hinkle, M.D. of New York Hospital-Cornell Medical Center. Hinkle was identified by the New York Times, together with Dr. D. Ewen Cameron, Dr. Robert Hyde, Dr. Louis Jolyon West, Dr. Harris Isbell, Dr. Harold Abramson, Dr. Carl Pieiffer and Dr. Charles Geschikter as all being involved in CIA backed research under Bluebird, Artichoke and MKULTRA.

Described as a “Teaching Fellow, Department of Psychiatry, Harvard University Medical School”, Orne’s chapter in The Manipulation of Human Behavior, is entitled “The potential uses of hypnosis in interrogation” and indicates “this paper is based in part upon work under a grant from the Society for the Investigation of Human Ecology, Inc.”, p. 169.

The stock number is 061-000-00819-5, for $9.00. Telephone orders: 202-512-1800, fax 202-512-2250 (8-4 EST), mail orders US Gov’t Printing Office, P O Box 371954, Pitts., PA 15250-7954. Information from the Advisory Committee hearings alleges that former members of the Advisory Board for the False Memory Syndrome Foundation may have worked on CIA funded projects, including Louis Jolyon West and Martin Orne.

It has been alleged that Louis Jolyon West had connections to CIA funded LSD projects. From “The Search for the Manchurian Candidate: The CIA and Mind Control,” John Marks, p. 63: “Suddenly there was a huge market for grants in academia, as Sid Gottlieb and his aides began to fund LSD projects at prestigious universities. The Agency’s LSD pathfinders can be identified : ….Louis Jolyon West at the University of Oklahoma…”

From, “Messing with Our Minds” With links to CIA mind control experts and accused child abusers, the false memory movement turns “blaming the victim” into a science – HUSAYN AL-KURDI – (all accusations are alleged) “It should come as no surprise, then, that long-time CIA and “intelligence complex” operatives turn up on the FMSF Advisory Board. Perhaps the most public member has been Dr. Louis Joylon “Jolly” West, a legendary figure in CIA mind control circles operating out of UCLA. Another is Dr. Martin Orne, an authority on torture who currently works at the University of Pennsylvania’s Experimental Psychiatry Lab. While studying the effects of over 16 biochemical warfare agents until the early 1970s, Orne considered the effectiveness of choking, blistering, and vomiting agents, toxins, poison gas, and various incapacitating chemicals. During the same period, he also worked with the Cornell University-based Human Ecology Fund, sharing his findings with Dr. Even Cameron, who was then based at the McGill University Allen Institute in Montreal. At Human Ecology, electroshock, lobotomies, drugs, incapacitants, hypnosis, sleep deprivation, and radio control of the brain were all specialties of the house.”

This center’s specialty would have been psychosurgery, a horrendous melting of brain connections, supposedly to curb people’s “violent tendencies.” Jon Rappoport’s website is :

DEAR STIB: I am in possession of confidential information to the effect that

the Army is prepared to turn over Nike missile bases to state and local agencies for non-military purposes. They may look with special favor on health-related applications.

Such a Nike missile base is located in the Santa Monica Mountains, within a half-hour’s drive of the Neuropsychiatric Institute. It is accessible but relatively remote….If this site were made available to Neuropsychiatric Institute as a research facility, perhaps initially as an adjunct to the new Center for Prevention of Violence, we could put it to very good use. Comparative studies could be carried out there, in an isolated but convenient location, of experimental or model programs for the alteration of undesirable behavior. Such programs might include control of drug or alcohol abuse, modification of chronic antisocial or impulsive aggressiveness, etc…. Needless to say, I stand available to participate in any way that might be helpful – Sincerely yours, LOUIS JOLYON WEST, M.D., Medical Director

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).”

“Church Committee Report at 391. MKULTRA records were destroyed in January 1973 by TSD personnel acting on the orders of Gottlieb, who in turn had obtained approval from Helms.” quotes from:

You Are the Strong One by CBDW/Crystal Dawn ’92

Life screams out at you from all directions

it says – give up, give in, get out,

you are not strong enough

to go any further now

only the strong ones succeed

you may be rich or you may be poor

everyone dies so don’t give up, don’t give in

prove you’re one of the strong

don’t listen to people who abuse

they are the weak ones,

they make others hurt

so they’ll feel

you’ll live longer than them

for you are the strong one

they are weak, you will outlive them always

Abuse Still Haunts Boys’ Ranch Survivor, by Paul Chavez, Tacoma News Tribune, 10-01-94, “The boys’ suit alleged sexual abuse was rampant at the O.K. Boys Ranch for troubled youth from 1985 through 1993. It claimed the state and the Olympia Kiwanis Club, which operated the foster home, did nothing to stop it. The settlement … included: A $4.175 million settlement from the state of Washington. The state Department of Social and Health Services conducted an audit of the ranch in 1988 that disclosed multiple sexual abuse of youths by other youths and/or staff, court documents said. Lawyers for the boys charged that DSHS did little to stop the abuses. A $3 million settlement from the Kiwanis Club of Olympia, which operated the foster home.”

Court of Appeals Division I – State of Washington – Opinion Information Sheet – Docket Number: 41241-8-I – Title of Case: David L. Calof, Respondent v. Charles “chuck” Noah, Et. al., Appellants … 09/11/2000, SOURCE OF APPEAL, Superior Court of King County, Docket No: 95-2-15224-4, ….Noah and Casebeer were involved in activities protesting Calof’s work in repressed memory recovery. Calof secured an antiharassment order against Noah. Noah was found in contempt for violating the antiharassment order. Noah challenges the antiharassment order and his conviction for contempt on the grounds it violated First Amendment rights including free speech, the right to picket, and the right to photograph Calof in public. We hold an antiharassment order may place enforceable limits of First Amendment rights as needed to enforce the no contact provisions of the order. We affirm the antiharassment order and his conviction for contempt. Calof sued Casebeer and others for defamation and other injuries. Casebeer and others entered voluntarily and knowingly into a mediated settlement agreement. Casebeer repudiated the agreement on the grounds that she could not lawfully contract away First Amendment rights, such as speech and picketing. The trial court held that the agreement was enforceable. We hold that mere enforcement of the agreement does not constitute state action for purposes of constitutional analysis.
