James Holmes, and how the CIA hid their MKULTRA mind-control program

Back in the early 1990s, I interviewed John Marks, author of Search for the Manchurian Candidate. This was the book that exposed the existence of the infamous CIA MKULTRA program.

I bring up this interview now, because James Holmes may well be on the receiving end of MKULTRA, as his lawyers try to navigate an insanity plea in the Aurora massacre case.

Holmes will be given “truth drugs” to “refresh his memory” about his state of mind at the time of the killings. If that sounds absurd, it is. I wrote a piece the other day detailing how such drugs are often given to produce extreme terror in patients. In other words, the drugs don’t elicit the truth. They’re used as threats to force the patient/suspect to confess to whatever his torturers want him to confess to.

John Marks related the following facts to me. He had filed many Freedom of Information (FOIA) requests to the CIA for documents relating to their mind-control program. He got nothing back.

Finally, as if to play a joke on him, someone at the CIA sent Marks 10 boxes of financial and accounting records. The attitude was, “Here, see what you can do with this.”

I’ve seen some of those records. They’re very boring reading.

But Marks went through them, and lo and behold, he found he could piece together MKULTRA projects, based on the funding data.

Eventually, he assembled enough information to begin naming names. He conducted interviews. The shape of MKULTRA swam into view. And so he wrote his book, Search for the Manchurian Candidate.

He told me that three important books had been written about MKULTRA, and they all stemmed from those 10 boxes of CIA financial records. There was his own book; Operation Mind Control by Walter Bowart; and The Mind Manipulators by Alan Scheflin and Edward Opton.

Marks continued to press the CIA for more MKULTRA information. He explained to me what then happened. A CIA official told him the following: in 1962, after ten years of mind-control experiments, the whole program had been shifted over to another internal CIA department, the Office of Research and Development (ORD).

The ORD had a hundred boxes of information on their MKULTRA work, and there was no way under the sun, Marks was told, that he was ever going to get his hands on any of that. It was over. It didn’t matter how many FOIA requests Marks filed. He was done. The door was shut. Goodbye.

The CIA went darker than it ever had before. No leaks of any kind would be permitted.

In case there is any doubt about it, the idea of relying on the CIA to admit what it has done in the mind-control area, what it is doing, and what it will do should be put to bed by John Mark’s statements. The CIA always has been, and will continue to be, a rogue agency beyond the reach of the law.

Since it is the agency with the most experience using “truth drugs,” when James Holmes is put on ice at a Colorado mental hospital, to go through what the judge has permitted—a “narcoanalytic review” to test Holmes’ state of mind—it’s probable that CIA people will be on hand to advise.

The Colorado in-house psychiatrists know nothing about the use of truth drugs. They especially don’t know how to employ those drugs to produce just enough terror in the patient to get him to admit to Anything.

To give you an idea of how far the CIA, the US military, and its allied academics will go in MKULTRA “research,” here is what I wrote in 1995 about several human experiments. My information was based on the three key books I mentioned above, as well as Martin Lee’s classic, Acid Dreams:

Dr. Robert Heath of Tulane University, as early as 1955, working for the Army, gave patients LSD while he had electrodes implanted deep inside their brains.”

In the mid-1950’s, Paul Hoch, M.D., a man who would become Commissioner of Mental Hygiene for the State of New York, then a laborer in the field for the CIA, gave a ‘pseudoneurotic schizophrenic’ patient mescaline. The patient had a not-unfamiliar heaven-and-hell journey on the compound. But Hoch followed this up with a transorbital leucotomy [aka lobotomy]… Hoch also gave a patient LSD, and a local anesthetic, and then proceeded to remove pieces of cerebral cortex, asking at various moments whether the patient’s perceptions were changing.”

People need to understand how the history of mind control and psychiatry are interwoven, and how the madmen and murderers within these “professions” are content to use torture “in the name of science.”

From a current naturalnews article by Dr. Peter Breggin (“Never again! The real history of psychiatry”) we get insight into one aspect of that history:

[Before World War 2, in America], organized psychiatry had been sterilizing tens of thousands of Americans. For a time in California, you couldn’t be discharged from a state hospital unless you were sterilized. In Virginia the retarded were targeted. American advocates of sterilization went to Berlin to help the Nazis plan their sterilization program. These Americans reassured the Germans that they would meet no opposition from America in sterilizing their mentally and physically ‘unfit’ citizens.

“While the murder of mental patients was going full swing in Germany, knowledgeable American psychiatrists and neurologists didn’t want to be left out. In 1942, the American Psychiatric Association held a debate about whether to sterilize or to murder low IQ ‘retarded’ children when they reached the age of five. Those were the only two alternatives in the debate: sterilization or death.

“After the debate, the official journal of the American Psychiatric Association published an editorial in which it chose sides in favor of murder (‘Euthanasia’ in the American Journal of Psychiatry, 1942, volume 99, pp. 141-143). It said psychiatrists would have to muster their psychological skills to keep parents from feeling guilty about agreeing to have their children killed.”

    Remember all those “Mad Scientist” movies from the early 50s?

    Tame compared to reality. Aye?

    I wonder what rumors were about in Hollywood back then; being as the ‘in-crowd’ there is rather well connected with Spooksville.

    As I worked in “the industry” there in Hollywood {special visual effects}, I can testify that there are some very strange people there, especially in management, and agencies.

    I called it, ‘ESCAPE FROM L.A.’ when I finally left the place.

    I live in Hollywood but only worked “in the business” once, on a Steve Martin film long, long ago in Texas. And it was *weird.* The money was great, but I was like…no more working on films for me if I can help it.

    There are some reaalll strange characters in the business…the business itself is way strange.

    This column and what’s at the end of it make me so sad this evening….at the end of a day of advanced brain fry…

    But it’s always interesting to learn.
    I’m going to shut this puppy down soon, and go home and have a martini.

    For the truth about current top-secret US psychotronic weapons using EEG cloning, why Colonel Aquino at the NSA is the leader of The Temple of Set (an offshoot of The Church of Satan), and what Putin meant when he said in Forbes that his, “new psychotronic weapons will replace the atom bomb,” see former Dept. of Defense scientist and whistleblower , Dr. Robert Duncan’s book on Amazon- or google “The Matrix Deciphered” for a free read. It’s true.

    Nsa has restarted the mkultra program and is using it to harass me a technology known as voice to skull. I have proof bought an emf detector which constantly goes off. Also in Ohio a plaintiff won a case on this very issue where the judge ordered the defendant to stop harassing the plaintiff using electronic means there are a ton of people being harassed this way it could be a very large class action I’m being harassed because I filed over 800 suits against the government while incarcerated on copyright infringement charges.

  10. As a unwitting subject, it appears we have further MK-ULTRA activity in Toronto, Ontario. Medical records and X-ray at http://www.thewhyfiles.net/mkultra4.htm#update discloses unauthorized covert lobotomy and brain implant experimentation, (Dec.9,1969 & Jan, 27,1972, at 14 & 16 years of age) without informed consent, nor parental knowledge, while under the guise of treating epilepsy. (ie-“scar tissue removal”) Not only does this information correlate with Manchurian Candidate developmental research, according to the Mind Stealers by Samuel Chavkin, and The Mind Manipulators by Alan Scheflin, it also correlates with the CIA MK-ULTRA project of psychosurgical and brain implant research, upon unwitting subjects. Those subjects being myself, and other children who suffer epilepsy at the Toronto Hospital for Sick Children. Dr. Harold Joseph Hoffman is noted for having 15,741 children under his care between 1964-1998. It would be fair to suggest that anywhere between 10% to 1/3, have been exploited for unauthorized brain surgical research. (1500-5000 children) Seems MK-ULTRA is alive and well, with the blessing of the College of Physicians & Surgeons, Ontario Health Professions Board, Toronto police, OPP, RCMP, and our elected members of parliament. Not to exclude a HSC Patient’s words of a “on-going problem”. http://www.thewhyfiles.net/mkultra4.htm#update

    Wait. I thought Holmes was a programmed assassin, a la the near-field communication chip that MURI scientists (and, no doubt, others within different university networks across the country, as these things go) have been creating (you know, the ‘psychic soldier’?).
