The Story:

On November 28, 1953, Frank Olson’s body sailed peacefully through the air for a few short seconds, then slammed against the pavement below. He had dropped from the 13th story of the Hotel Statler in Manhattan. He was dead. Olson was a CIA agent, and had been dosed with LSD, most likely without his consent. This tragic story is quite possibly the origin of the popular belief that LSD causes people to believe they can fly, and jump out of windows. The problem with that is, forensic data from 1994 shows that Olson was knocked unconscious before he fell. It is unlikely that the thought of flying ever crossed his mind. Olson was pushed out of the window.

Olson was involved in a CIA project known as MKULTRA, an operation in mind control with many stated intentions, such as: discovering a truth serum to extract information from spies, finding out how possible it is to control people – specifically to create double agents, and making a public figure appear crazy, with the intent to discredit them. The circumstantial evidence indicates that, perhaps Olson knew too much, perhaps he was preparing to blow the whistle, and perhaps that’s why he met his untimely demise.

MKULTRA involved many clandestine operations, including Project Midnight Climax. In this op, the CIA set up a few brothels in a few US cities, and paid prostitutes to administer the LSD to the johns. In Subproject 68, a front organisation was established in Canada, and Dr. Donald Ewen Cameron was paid to conduct experiments on his patients, most likely without the knowledge that he was involved in a CIA program. On his subjects, Cameron used hallucinogenic drugs, sensory deprivation, electro-convulsive treatment, and electromagnetic radiation. Some of his patients lost their memories entirely – unable to talk, unable to walk, and incontinent, just as an infant.

Today, we can see cases such as David Shayler, a former MI5 operative who became a whistleblower, leaking documents about MI5’s investigation into members of parliament, and later questioning the official stories of 9/11 and 7/7. Shayler became discredited publicly when he declared himself to be a divine consciousness, started living in a squat, under the name of Delores Kane, his/her transvestite alter ego.

Another case is that of Karen Hudes, a whistleblower from the World Bank exposing corruption in the international financial system. In 2014 she started speaking about the races of extraterrestrials that are controlling the world. This affected her public image considerably.

In the intelligence community, there is a well-known formula: Capability + Intent = Threat. The experiments of the CIA indicate their capability to affect people mentally, though we don’t necessarily know the full extent of their abilities. The fact that they are an intelligence organisation indicates that they do have the motivation to discredit people. The historical precedent demonstrates how far they outside the law they are willing to go – to the point of drugging random civilians to see what happens. These factors, without a doubt, comprise a threat.

In this episode, Aaron and Kurt explore these issues, and ask how the CIA’s work could still affect the world today. What other experiments did they perform? How might intelligence agencies use this knowledge to manipulate public opinion? How much do we actually know? Join us in this intelligence-gathering mission as we move into the next exciting chapter of The Paradise Paradox!
