The CIA and allies in the pursuit of methods to “induce brain concussion " - WIRED - May 11, 2010

On May 6, 2010, after a Freedom of Information Act request and 30 years after it was written, a 17-page document detailing the involvement of the Pentagon in the CIA’s infamous Cold War mind-control experiments was released.

The document , “Experimentation Programs conducted by the Department of Defense That Had CIA Sponsorship or Participation and That Involved the Administration to Human Subjects of Drugs Intended for Mind-Control or Behavior-Modification Purposes,” was prepared in 1977 by the General Counsel of the US Department of Defense.

Although most of the details of the CIA’s infamous mind-control experiments have been revealed in earlier CIA papers, the recent released documents details the involvement of the Department of Defense in the CIA projects.

The studies on to “induce brain concussion" were part of a project initially funded by the Navy and shortly thereafter transferred entirely to the CIA, because it involved “human experiments not easily justifiable on medical-therapeutic grounds.”
