Anti-Torture Resources: MKULTRA

Saw this by kraant at Political Fleshfeast and thought it was well-worth passing along for those unfamiliar with MKULTRA:

Here's a quick summary from wikipedia...

Project MKULTRA:

Project MKULTRA, or MK-ULTRA, was the code name for a CIA mind-control research program that began in 1950, run by the Office of Scientific Intelligence.[1][2][3]. There is much published evidence that the project involved the use of many types of drugs, as well as other methodology, to manipulate individual mental states and to alter brain function.[4]

Here are some primary sources:

Declassified MK-Ultra Project Documents:

When the whole thing was originally brought to light:

Start reading from this page of the Church Committee Report and keep reading:

XVII. TESTING AND USE OF CHEMICAL AND BIOLOGICAL AGENTS BY THE INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY (p. 385)

The first mention of MKULTRA itself would be on page 389:

Since I've mentioned CIA involvement in the research and perpetration of torture since the post WWII era, it's useful to know the source material that folks like me would draw upon. Knowledge is power.
