    Leave out the LSD and you get “unsuspecting brothel patrons . . . are ‘filmed for research purposes,’ behind two-way mirrors.”

    Very serious business, all in the interest of national security, my ass!

    Bring it forward 50 years and you get the TSA virtual strip search x-ray machines: “We need to see you naked because, um, Terrorists!”

    Ah Homo Sapiens!

    Jon Ronson’s 2004 book “The men who stare at goats” pulls together the CIA’s role in drugging it own unsuspecting CIA scientists (i.e. Frank Olsen) to modern War-on-terror integrations. It’s a good, quick read.

    WIKI says George Clooney is making a movie version with the BBC. It may even be as good as Operation Midnight Climax. Who knows?

    I have a Canadian TV movie (fished from the bargain bin again) of our shameful involvement in this harebrained scheme.

    A border-hopping doctor, a prestigious university, a mental-health ward, and a good strong dose of hopeful self-delusion had us experimenting on people already hurting so much.

    As usual with these sorts of stories, it escalated along with its own hubris until an outsider called out the real insanity.

    It really is worth researching on all sides. They did a lot of experiments on unknowing US soldiers too, one of their early attempts to find that elusive supersoldier pill. They’re still looking for it.

    Suprised our poster with the MKULTRA moniker hasn’t chimed in yet.
