Torture-based, Government-sponsored Mind Control Experimentation on Children
...From Senator Edward Kennedy’s opening remarks to a Senate investigative committee August 3, 1977:
"Some two years ago, the Senate Health Subcommittee heard chilling testimony about the human experimentation activities of the Central Intelligence Agency. The Deputy Director of the CIA revealed that over 30 universities and institutions were involved in an “extensive testing and experimentation” program which included covert drug tests on unwitting citizens “at all social levels, high and low, native Americans and foreign.”
. . .
Perhaps most disturbing of all was the fact that the extent of experimentation on human subjects was unknown. The records of all these activities were destroyed in January 1973 at the instruction of then CIA Director Richard Helms. In spite of persistent inquiries by both the Health Subcommittee and the Intelligence Committee, no additional records or information were forthcoming. And no one- no single individual— could be found who remembered the details, not the Director of the CIA, who ordered the documents destroyed, not the official responsible for the program, nor any of his associates.
Adult Survivors and Their Helpers Report Child Torture Committed During the Cold War in the Name of National Security
257 survivors from at least 15 countries reported that secret GMC (government-sponsored mind control) experiments were performed on them as children. National Security Archive “Declassified records" reveal that at least 23 war criminals or Nazis were approached
by the CIA for recruitment after World War II.
“Many survivors have alleged some of these same war criminals, using aliases, were complicit in their extreme abuse. Some of the names the torturers went by were Dr. Black, Dr. Swartz(Black in German), Father Joseph, and Vaterchen (Father in German). These four aliases are names many survivors have independently reported to me as names that were used in their presence by Josef Mengele, the “Angel of Death,” the infamous Nazi
doctor who performed horrific experiments on the prisoners at Auschwitz.
(Rutz, C. [2007, August]. The world will know. Paper presented at the 10th Annual Ritual Abuse Conference, Windsor Locks, CT. Neil Brick, Moderator)
60 survivors reported that one of their perpetrators went by the name “Dr. Black;” 33 reported a Dr. Swartz;
34 reported a Father Joseph; 30 reported a Vaterchan. 34 helpers had heard adult survivors report that Mengele was involved in their abuse. 166 survivors reported hearing mind control programmers who spoke German or with heavy German accents.
CIA Director Allen Dulles (1953)
. . . we have no human guinea pigs, ourselves, on which to try out these extraordinary techniques [referring to Communist brainwashing techniques].” Sometime after this speech, in an effort to win the “battle for men’s minds” between the United States and the Soviet Union, Dulles set up MKULTRA. He authorized mind control experiments testing such techniques as brain implants, sensory deprivation, ultrasonics, torture, amnesia-inducing drugs, biologicals, psychological stress, electroshock, and hypnosis.” (Dulles, A. W. [1953, May 8]. Brain Warfare—Russia’s Secret Weapon. U. S. News & World Report, p. 58).
Declassified CIA Document (MKULTRA) One of the documents specifically stated that experimental studies of the postulated abilities of a few specially gifted subjects would be studied [see Gordon Cooper’s comments below] and “that in working with individual subjects, special attention will be given to disassociative states which tend to accompany spontaneous ESP experiences. Such states can be induced and controlled to some extent with
hypnosis and drugs...”
". . .The data used in the study will be obtained from special groups such as psychotics, children [on the EAS, 257 adults reported that they had been used as children to obtain data in these studies] and mediums...Learning studies will be instituted in which the subject will be rewarded or punished for his overall performance and reinforced in various ways–by being told whether he was right, by being told what the target was, with electric shock, etc.” (Subproject 136 of MKULTRA CIA Mori ID#17395 ESP Research, 1961 and 1962)

Herbert Hoover (Report by Secret Group for White House, 1954) “It is now clear that we are facing an implacable enemy whose avowed objective is world domination...There are no rules in such a game. Hitherto
accepted norms of human conduct do not apply.” (1954 Hoover Report. As quoted in Moyers, B.
