The ugliest side of MK-ULTRA
If you watched the program, you learned of how the CIA attempted to use psychedlics as weapons. All this came under the rubric of MK-ULTRA. The "MK" came from the German Minde Kontrolle. In other words, this was an extension of an earlier German program initiated by Nazi scientists - using Jews and other 'undesirables' as test subjects. (I suggest that anyone who is interested plug MK-ULTRA or Operation Paperclip into their favorite browser; the results might shock you.)But the worst aspect of this whole mad scheme was not the CIA's wholesale importation of murdering Nazi butchers, fresh from their work at the death camps, into the US to 'help' in the Cold War. It wasn't their dispensing of lSD to unknowing subjects and watching them have psychotic breaks; It was the blatant attacks made by both the CIA and the Army in spraying possibly lethal baccili into subway tunnels (just like the Aum ShinRikyo's nerve agent attach 30 years later in Tokyo) just to see what the results might be.I don't know about you, but when the government gets on it's high horse and pontificates about the moral depravity of drug trafficking, I can't help but think that the government is certainly an expert on depravity - considering what it has done to the American people, without their knowledge or consent, it sounds like the pot (no pun intended) is calling the kettle black.
