Families of MK Ultra Victims File Lawsuit Over Government Mind Control Experiments

By John Vibes

Most of the government mind control programs that exist are kept secret, but over the years there is one that managed to draw the attention of the public. That program was a government project called “MK Ultra,” a CIA operation that involved extreme methods of mind control that were tested on US and Canadian citizens. The projects began in the 1940s and ran until the 1970s when the details of the experiments were exposed because victims began speaking out about the conditions that they were subjected to.

There were 150 “sub-projects” within the MKU program, many involved advanced brainwashing techniques using psychological drugs, sensory deprivation and electroshock therapy.

A new class-action lawsuit was filed by families and survivors of MK Ultra experiments in Canada this week, since the controversial mind control experiments were also conducted there, as well as in the United States. The experiments were overseen by Dr. Donald Ewen Cameron, the first Chairman of the World Psychiatric Association, and president of both American and Canadian psychiatric associations.

The plaintiffs in the lawsuit were all involved in experiments at the Allan Memorial Institute of McGill University, but similar experiments took place in dozens of other locations across the U.S. and Canada. In most cases, test subjects were unknowingly entered into these dangerous studies after they reported common psychological problems like depression, anxiety or addiction.

Marlene Levenson, the niece of a deceased MK Ultra survivor named Phyllis Goldberg, who was recently interviewed by CTV News about the pending lawsuit, said that her family’s life was torn apart by the experiments and that her aunt was never the same again after leaving that hospital.

“When she would be with us, on weekends and so on, she didn’t communicate. She laughed for no reason. Her gait was very different. She couldn’t dress herself—she couldn’t do anything for herself. When you went to pat her, just as a gesture, she would cringe. That bewildered me—not realizing, or understanding, she had electric shock equipment put on her head so many times that it [remained] in her subconscious,” Levenson explained.

“I could not believe this was allowed. These were innocent people who went in for mild depression—even if it was severe depression, post-partum, neurological things that happened—they came out completely ravaged, and their life was ruined,” she added.

Angela Bardosh, another family member involved in the lawsuit, says that the experiments gave her mother schizophrenia.

“It’s horrific to go back—for me, it took years to go back and read my mom’s medical records. Within six months with the treatments that Dr. Cameron did, it turned her into an acute schizophrenic. She suffered greatly through the mental health system,” Bardosh said.

In 1973, when the experiments began receiving public attention, CIA director and chief architect of MKU, Richard Helms, destroyed records of the project, but some papers were misfiled and overlooked, providing evidence that the program existed. Just a few years later those misfiled papers would come back to haunt the Pentagon as they would expose some of the harsh realities behind the MKU program. After this evidence surfaced, dozens of victims came forth claiming to be test subjects in MKU experiments and filed lawsuits against the CIA.

The governments of both the U.S. and Canada have done their best to avoid responsibility for these experiments, and although there have been several rulings in favor of some victims, these families are usually left to fight it out individually in court. In 2009, veterans groups attempted to sue the CIA over trauma and suffering caused by the experiments, and they are still appealing their case today. According to a report from Wired:

The experiments allegedly included “the use of troops to test nerve gas, psychochemicals, and thousands of other toxic chemical or biological substances, and … the insertion of septal implants in the brains of subjects in … mind control experiments that went awry, leaving many civilian and military subjects with permanent disabilities.” Subjects were tested without their consent, the veterans say. And when the trials were over, the government failed to “provide health care or compensation.”

In 1992, nearly 70 MK Ultra victims were awarded $100,000 by the Canadian government as restitution for the experiments, but many of the victims—including those involved in this most recent lawsuit—were not eligible for compensation because the ruling allowed for a very small window of qualifications, leaving out a very large number of survivors.

The group filing the lawsuit is seeking a public apology from the government as well as compensation, although it was not specified how much they are seeking.

    It turns out the unabomber was a subject of MK Ultra.

    • What is your evidence please?

    • Due to the serial “special projects” by the CIA, and the destruction of MKUltra records that could document violation of the constitution and subordinate law, it is logical that all alleged “lone gunmen” were victims of MK Ultra, going back to the assassination of Robert Kennedy Sr.

      Similar techniques can be used to create activists, such as David Hogg. Hogg, reportedly a former student of Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., was reportedly not on campus at the time of the massacre. He is reportedly the son of a former FBI agent, and has become an outspoken critic of the National Rifle Association and effectively opposes the 2nd amendment.

  2. Another project for harvesting human subjects like Ping Pong Pizza, “alien kidnapping”, detention via the intelligence agencies “watch lists”, and the military. Your government has the right by the NDAA to harvest resources. The FED (read feed) has been taking people for decades, that’s why so many children and homeless go missing every year and the FBI looks the other way. With all the NSA satellite surveillance we should be able to know more about various events but we don’t – how come? Because of “need to know” basis just like MKUltra. MKUltra is part of the expansion of Operation Paperclip allowing thousands of Nazis to infiltrate and take over the USA. And here we are – a dumbed down mind controlled nation mindlessly electing the same enslavement year after year.
