Veteran MKULTRA Victims Sue US Government

mkultra declassifiedEarlier this year, a U.S. District Court judge ruled that two veterans’ rights organizations, Vietnam Veterans of America and Swords to Plowshares, along with six veterans had the right to proceed with a case against the CIA, the Department of Defense, and the U.S. Army based on the veterans’ unwitting participation in Project MKULTRA.

Morrison & Forester, the plaintiffs’ lawyers, described MKULTRA as a:

“. . . human experimentation program launched in the early 1950s and continued through at least 1976 when it was suspended in response to hearings conducted by Congress. Thousands of experiments took place at the Edgewood Arsenal and Fort Detrick, as well as several universities and hospitals across America contracted by the Defendants. ‘Volunteers’ were exposed to thousands of toxins under code names such as MKULTRA, including drugs such as LSD, mescaline, and cannabis; biological substances such as plague and anthrax; and noxious gases such as sarin, tabun, and nerve gases.”

Often experiments were conducted without the “volunteers’” (or victims in this case) knowledge or consent.

The firm’s description of the project is not only straight forward, but accurate as well. Not a lot of legalese here.

The experiments and their results are detailed in nearly 20,000 MKULTRA documents, now declassified. They were made available through an FOIA request in 1977. The goal of the project, supported by declassified documents, was to research methods of mind control and extracting information from resistant subjects during interrogations.

Some historians have even gone as far to say the ultimate goal of MKULTRA was to create a real-life “Manchurian Candidate.”

The plaintiffs’ lawyers, who are handling the case pro bono, assert that the six veterans involved are looking to be relieved of their secrecy oaths so that they can find proper healthcare for ailments caused by the project’s experiments, and also settle why these soldiers were made into victims.

    Do you know of the research done at Wilford Hall, Lackland AFB, TX, in 1973?

    Not certain what research you’re referring to specifically Frank, but if you want to chat, please contact me via the email address on our Contact page. I’d be interested to learn what you know!

  • In the fall of 1969, I was on a school function (bus trip/speech tournament) to a small town West Plains, Missouri. I became ill with 103 degree temp was taken to the ER (so were about 124 others that evening) was told not to take ‘codeine’ treated and released. Dx-bronchitis; about 20 months later I got very sick this time Dx-colitis. West Plains, Missouri mfg ‘bio-weapons’ must have been a leak. Would be interested in your opinion. Thanks, Thryn

    I was a part of an MK Ultra Experiment at Wilford Hall’s new 4-d Psych Unit while my mother recovered from a very strange condition resulting from my birth.  I supposedly was there for one month after my birth in the partially finished 4th Floor Sonic Holography Program connected with Project OPENEYES USAF subset Zeta Diogenes/CLEAREYES Level 1-5.  The things my mother remembered about during our stay is right out of insanity.  Would these attorney’s be interested in my experiences?
