Project MK Ultra and Other Shocking CIA Programs

When the extent of the U.S. government’s domestic spying program was revealed this past summer, many were surprised and outraged: how could a government which so prizes liberty of its citizens covertly collect data on its own people? Yet, sadly, this is not the first time Uncle Sam, without permission or notice, secretly gathered information on its people and wasn’t even close to the greatest atrocity.  For that, there are numerous other examples. To know about the worst of them, check out an article of Insidermonkey on the project MK Ultra and other shocking CIA programs. This article will surely give you some new thoughts.

Likewise, many of the experiments of CIA were done secretly. Not all testing was done unwittingly, although that did not make it any more ethical. For example, in a prison experiment conducted by the National Institute of Mental Health Addiction Research Center at the Lexington Rehabilitation Center, prisoners who volunteered to participate in a hallucinogenic drug experiment were promised doses of the drug of their addiction. Shocking, isn't it? However, since this declassification was done decades after the deeds, they’d just raise their shoulders in a shrug, apologize for their predecessors and move on.
