Selby met with President Goheen between eight to 10 more times, and Goheen became more involved, eventually sponsoring a forum on psychedelics, according to Selby. Goheen even arranged for Selby to receive a diploma his senior year, when Selby and his pregnant wife fled for California one night after a bad encounter with the CIA. Davids and Selby recall the some troubling effects of the drug experimentation at the Institute.

Project MKUltra

When Davids began his time at the Institution as a research subject, Selby, then a research hypnotist, was assigned to him to train him to go into deep hypnotic states. When Davids was in a trance, Selby had an out-of-body experience where he was hypnotically made to experience that he was a bird and flying away, according to Davids.

Selby, convinced the doctors had never restored his memory of growing up on a cattle ranch in the West, went upstairs to confront Dr. Coming to the University, Selby had never even had a beer.

When he started at the Institute and was introduced to hashish, Selby stopped drinking. As he continued research at the Institute, he began using more psychedelics. Frank Olson , was attributed to Olson's being subjected, unaware, to such experimentation, nine days before his death.

The CIA itself subsequently acknowledged that these tests had little scientific rationale.

The agents conducting the monitoring were not qualified scientific observers. It was learned that not only had the CIA funded Dr.

This revelation largely derailed efforts by the victims to sue the CIA as their U. Cameron died on September 8, , after suffering a heart attack while he and his son were mountain climbing.


None of Cameron's personal records of his involvement with MKUltra survived, since his family destroyed them after his death. General Accounting Office report[ edit ] The U. General Accounting Office issued a report on September 28, , which stated that between and , DOD and other national security agencies studied thousands of human subjects in tests and experiments involving hazardous substances.

The quote from the study: [73] Working with the CIA, the Department of Defense gave hallucinogenic drugs to thousands of "volunteer" soldiers in the s and s. Between and , the program consisted of projects involving drug testing and other studies on unwitting human subjects Deaths[ edit ] Given the CIA's purposeful destruction of most records, its failure to follow informed consent protocols with thousands of participants, the uncontrolled nature of the experiments, and the lack of follow-up data, the full impact of MKUltra experiments, including deaths, may never be known.

Olson, a United States Army biochemist and biological weapons researcher, was given LSD without his knowledge or consent in November, , as part of a CIA experiment and committed suicide by jumping out of a window a week later. A CIA doctor assigned to monitor Olson claimed to have been asleep in another bed in a New York City hotel room when Olson exited the window and fell thirteen stories to his death.

In , Olson's death was described as a suicide that had occurred during a severe psychotic episode.

What We Know About the CIA’s Midcentury Mind-Control Project

The CIA's own internal investigation concluded that the head of MKUltra, CIA chemist Sidney Gottlieb, had conducted the LSD experiment with Olson's prior knowledge, although neither Olson nor the other men taking part in the experiment were informed as to the exact nature of the drug until some 20 minutes after its ingestion.

The report further suggested that Gottlieb was nonetheless due a reprimand, as he had failed to take into account Olson's already-diagnosed suicidal tendencies, which might have been exacerbated by the LSD.

They maintain that Frank Olson was murdered because, especially in the aftermath of his LSD experience, he had become a security risk who might divulge state secrets associated with highly classified CIA programs, about many of which he had direct personal knowledge. Among Olson's concerns were the development of assassination materials used by the CIA, the CIA's use of biological warfare materials in covert operations, experimentation with biological weapons in populated areas, collaboration with former Nazi scientists under Operation Paperclip , LSD mind-control research, and the use of psychoactive drugs during "terminal" interrogations under a program code-named Project ARTICHOKE.

Albarelli Jr. Although the government aggressively, and sometimes successfully, sought to avoid legal liability, several plaintiffs did receive compensation through court order, out-of-court settlement, or acts of Congress.

Previously, the CIA and the army had actively and successfully sought to withhold incriminating information, even as they secretly provided compensation to the families. One subject of army drug experimentation, James Stanley, an army sergeant, brought an important, albeit unsuccessful, suit.

The government argued that Stanley was barred from suing under a legal doctrine—known as the Feres doctrine , after a Supreme Court case, Feres v.

United States —that prohibits members of the Armed Forces from suing the government for any harms that were inflicted "incident to service. The United States Military Tribunal established the Nuremberg Code as a standard against which to judge German scientists who experimented with human subjects Justice Sandra Day O'Connor , writing a separate dissent, stated: No judicially crafted rule should insulate from liability the involuntary and unknowing human experimentation alleged to have occurred in this case.

Indeed, as Justice Brennan observes, the United States played an instrumental role in the criminal prosecution of Nazi officials who experimented with human subjects during the Second World War, and the standards that the Nuremberg Military Tribunals developed to judge the behavior of the defendants stated that the 'voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential In another lawsuit, Wayne Ritchie, a former United States Marshal , after hearing about the project's existence in , alleged the CIA laced his food or drink with LSD at a Christmas party which resulted in his attempting to commit a robbery at a bar and his subsequent arrest.
