4,358 New MKUltra Docs To Be Released After Crowdfunding Campaign
John Greenewald has been FOIA requesting undisclosed, government documents since he was 15 years old, having filed roughly 9,000 requests. So, when he realized a batch of documents he received regarding the CIA’s mind control project MKUltra, was missing thousands of pages, he demanded an answer. Now, after a two-year battle to acquire those documents, the CIA finally acquiesced, though it commanded a fee.
Greenewald was made aware of the documents by a Reddit user who cross-checked his cache with their original index, finding 4,358 missing. Greenewald called the CIA to request them and was unsurprisingly met with resistance.
He was told the documents contained information regarding behavioral modification and were unrelated to MKUltra. But he wasn’t convinced, so he filed another FOIA to attain them.
Typically, Greenewald can submit a fee waiver for a FOIA request, under the grounds that he is a journalist and the publication of the files is for public interest, bettering the public’s understanding of the way government operates.
But this time his waiver was denied, with the CIA requiring a payment of $425.80 for his request. Unfortunately, Greenwald couldn’t come up with the money, instead turning to a GoFundMe crowdsourcing campaign. His goal was met within five days.
The disclosure of documentation surrounding the MKUltra program is of high public interest lately, especially with the release of the Netflix docudrama Wormwood, which investigates the death of former CIA scientist Frank Olsen, who became a victim of the program.
MKUltra was a program focused on studying the potential to control the minds of unwitting subjects, often through the administration of psychoactive substances, such as LSD.
Frank Olson was one of the CIA’s own, who was unknowingly given LSD before his suspicious death, falling from the 13th story window of a New York hotel.
Greenwald’s website was one of the first publications to release the CIA’s MKUltra documents after acquiring them in 2004. Since then, they have become the most commonly searched documents of more than 2,000,000 on the CIA’s website.
It will still take some time before this missing batch of documents makes its way into Olson’s hands and is published on his website, but we look forward to seeing what else the CIA has kept hidden from the public regarding one of its most nefarious and clandestine programs.

How to Protect Yourself from 5G and EMF Radiation
For a company to push innovation forward, they must first lobby for laws in their favor. Sometimes they lobby for the removal of laws. It’s all about what most serves their wealthy board members, shareholders, and revenue.
Industries like pharmaceuticals, dairy, manufacturing, energy, and wireless tech, plus many more, spend billions of dollars annually to successfully protect their agendas, pay packages, and profits through lobbying.
We might think that the government prioritizes our best interests, but this is rarely the case, and the rush to allow an unregulated 5G wireless infrastructure is a prime example of this. Which is why you should know how to protect yourself from 5G and EMF radiation.
How Tech Innovation Works
- Companies unearth an idea that’s years ahead of its time.
- The moment they file a patent, they hire lobbyists to set the stage for their technology’s success, whether it’s dangerous to the public or not.
- Tech is built-in stealth. Testing is limited. The focus is on profit.
- Through lobbying, secret payoffs, mutually self-serving deals, and insane incentives, laws are gutted and rushed. The public has little choice in the matter. In the end, everybody loses.
Because we have no laws in place that genuinely protect humanity from greed, and many regulations that glorify the corporation, the agendas of technology companies will continue to supersede the health of the planet and all living-beings for years to come.
