Holy hell. I found this article via Coast to Coast. A Canadian senior is suing the CIA for brainwashing techniques used in the 1950s. She was suffering from post-partum depression and checked herself into the renowned Allen Memorial Institute in 1950. Over the next 15 years, she was subjected to massive electroshock therapy, expiremental drugs, dosed with LSD, induced into coma, and listened to repetitive messages for days on end. This is a technique called psychic driving that is supposed to erase harmful memories and rebuild the psyche without psychiatric defect. The experiments were part of a larger CIA project called MK-ULTRA which administered LSD to prison inmates and brothel patients without their knowledge according to a 1977 Senate committee.
I’m not sure how legitimate this is, but it’s pretty damn weird.
