4,358 New MKUltra Docs To Be Released After Crowdfunding Campaign

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.

Weaponized Ticks: Is Lyme Disease an Escaped Government Bioweapon?

Weaponized Ticks: Is Lyme Disease an Escaped Government Bioweapon?

Lyme disease is now a fairly common ailment, plaguing more than 300,000 people each year, and most people believe it to be an extremely unfortunate side effect of living in or near heavily wooded areas.

Although ticks are found all over the world, some are questioning why 95 percent of all confirmed Lyme disease cases are occurring in the United States. Investigators are looking into the possibility that the ticks blamed for spreading the disease may actually be carrying bioweapons that were never meant to escape from an island off the coast of New York.
