Did the CIA use Mind Control and Torture?

Have you heard of MK Ultra?

This is not a new story, but since not everyone knows about it, I thought I would put this out. Somewhat surprisingly, I found all of this information easily on Chat GPT. I guess there is no attempt to hide it anymore.

What is MK ULtra?

MK Ultra was a controversial and secretive mind-control research program conducted by the United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) from the 1950s to the early 1970s. The program involved a range of unethical and illegal activities, including experiments on human subjects without their consent, the use of drugs and other forms of torture, and the manipulation of mental states for the purpose of interrogation and behavior modification.

The details of the MK Ultra program were not made public until the 1970s, when investigations by journalists and congressional committees exposed the program’s existence and some of its activities. The revelations about MK Ultra led to public outrage and calls for greater transparency and accountability in government research programs.

Results of the investigation

Since the exposure of MK Ultra, there have been efforts to increase transparency and oversight in government research programs, such as the creation of institutional review boards to ensure that research involving human subjects is conducted ethically and with informed consent, the establishment of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) and the creation of oversight committees in Congress to monitor intelligence activities..

Overall, the MK Ultra program was a clear violation of ethical and legal standards, and its legacy has been one of controversy and distrust. While there have been efforts to increase transparency and accountability in government research programs since the exposure of MK Ultra, there is still much work to be done to ensure that research is conducted ethically and with the protection of human subjects as a top priority.

Was anyone prosecuted for these crimes?

There were some investigations into the MK Ultra program after its exposure in the 1970s, but no one was ever prosecuted for the activities that occurred under the program.

In 1977, a Senate committee conducted a formal investigation into the MK Ultra program was the United States Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. The committee was chaired by Senator Frank Church of Idaho. The investigation led to the release of thousands of pages of previously classified documents related to MK Ultra which in turn led to changes in government policy regarding human experimentation and the protection of human subjects in research.

However, while the investigation shed light on the extent of the program and the unethical activities that occurred, no criminal charges were ever filed against anyone involved in the program. This was due in part to the fact that many of the individuals involved had either retired or died by the time the program was exposed, and also because the program had been shielded from public scrutiny for so long.

Did anyone die?

Yes, there were reports of deaths associated with the MK Ultra program. The program involved a range of unethical and often dangerous experiments on human subjects, including the use of drugs and other forms of torture.

One of the most well-known cases of a death associated with the program was that of Frank Olson, a biochemist who worked for the US Army and was involved in the MK Ultra program. In 1953, Olson died after falling from a hotel window in New York City, and it was later revealed that he had been given LSD by CIA operatives without his knowledge or consent as part of an MK Ultra experiment. The circumstances of Olson’s death have been the subject of controversy and investigation for many years.

There were likely other deaths associated with the MK Ultra program as well, although it is difficult to say for certain given the secrecy and lack of oversight that characterized the program. The unethical and dangerous nature of the program highlights the importance of ethical standards and transparency in research, and the need for strict oversight and accountability to protect human subjects from harm.

DARPA’s role in Intelligence gathering

DARPA is not part of the CIA, but has been involved in a number of controversial research programs in the past, including the development of technologies for surveillance and intelligence gathering, such as the Total Information Awareness program. While these programs have been publicly criticized and subjected to greater oversight in recent years, they do highlight the potential overlap between military and intelligence gathering activities.

DARPA has been involved in the development of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), also known as drones, for military and intelligence purposes.

DARPA has supported research and development of various drone technologies, including micro drones and swarms of drones. Some of the drones developed by DARPA have been used in military operations, such as the MQ-1 Predator and MQ-9 Reaper, which are used for reconnaissance and strike missions.

DARPA has also been involved in developing new technologies to enhance the capabilities of drones, such as advanced sensors, communications systems, and autonomous flight control systems. These technologies have the potential to make drones more effective and versatile for a range of military and intelligence gathering applications.


The use of targeted drone strikes has been criticized by some human rights groups and legal scholars as potentially violating international law and infringing on the sovereignty of other countries. There have also been concerns about the accuracy of drone strikes, with some reports suggesting that they have resulted in the deaths of innocent civilians.

In addition, there have been concerns about the lack of transparency and accountability surrounding the use of drone strikes, with some critics arguing that the secrecy surrounding these operations makes it difficult to assess their effectiveness and legality.

The use of drones in targeted strikes has also been controversial within the US government and military, with some officials expressing concern about the potential for unintended consequences and blowback from these operations.



  1. There really is no excuse for murdering an American citizen to conduct a research project. Here is a newspaper version of the story.

    What is most revealing about this whole episode is the moral indifference of some of our leaders. That program never should have gotten so out of control. And yes. It was out of control, and the people in charge knew it.

  2. This is why I laugh at people who believe what the feds say when their team is in power. I used to be called a conspiracy theorist, and my retort was, “No, I’m a conspiracy realist.” All that info has been available for decades. Everyone hates Alex Jones, but most of his rants were based off available info. Not all. But most.

  3. These types of programs continue on today but much more discreetly.

    Well researched propaganda tools through psychological means are distributed through media sources, through peer reviewed research paid for by certain groups, through emotional manipulation (which is the reason for the “woke” campaign, and many other methods. It is a cancer that will be difficult to stop!
