Note: I’m reprinting a piece I wrote about a year ago. In it, you’ll see a CIA mind-control document that calls for drugs fulfilling certain specific requirements.


“Long ago, I interviewed John Marks, author of Search for the Manchurian Candidate, the book that exposed the CIA’s MKULTRA mind-control program. He told me that in 1962, when MKULTRA supposedly ended, the CIA actually transferred the program to its Office of Research and Development, where it went completely dark.

A CIA representative told Marks there were a hundred boxes of material on the ‘new’ MKULTRA, and he, Marks, would never see any of it, no matter how many FOIA requests he made.” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)

“Plans for guiding the world can be formed and launched a long, long time before we see the results. Don’t assume cause and effect are merely and only short-term. That’s an unwarranted idea.” (The Underground)

Drugs to transform individuals…and even, by implication, society.

Drug research going far beyond the usual brief descriptions of MKULTRA.

The intention is there, in the record.

A CIA document was included in the transcript of the 1977 US Senate Hearings on MKULTRA, the CIA’s mind-control program.

The document is found in Appendix C, starting on page 166. It’s simply labeled “Draft,” dated 5 May 1955.

It begins: “A portion of the Research and Development Program of [CIA’s] TSS/Chemical Division is devoted to the discovery of the following materials and methods:”

What followed was a list of hoped-for drugs and their uses.

I’m printing, below, the list of the 1955 intentions of the CIA regarding their own drug research. The range of those intentions is stunning. All statements are direct quotes from the “Draft” document.

Some of my comments gleaned from studying the list:

The CIA wanted to find substances which would “promote illogical thinking and impulsiveness.” Serious consideration should be given to the idea that psychiatric medications, food additives, pesticides, and industrial chemicals (like fluorides) would eventually satisfy that requirement. [OPIOIDS WORK FOR PART OF THIS AGENDA]

The CIA wanted to find chemicals that “would produce the signs and symptoms of recognized diseases in a reversible way.” This suggests many possibilities—among them the use of drugs to fabricate diseases and thereby give the false impression of germ-caused epidemics.

The CIA wanted to find drugs that would “produce amnesia.” Ideal for discrediting whistleblowers, dissidents, certain political candidates, and other investigators. (Scopolamine, for example.) [OPIOIDS CAN DO THIS]

The CIA wanted to discover drugs which would produce “paralysis of the legs, acute anemia, etc.” A way to make people decline in health as if from diseases.

The CIA wanted to develop drugs that would “alter personality structure” and thus induce a person’s dependence on another person. How about dependence in general? For instance, dependence on institutions, governments? [OPIOIDS ARE A PERFECT FIT]

The CIA wanted to discover chemicals that would “lower the ambition and general working efficiency of men.” Sounds like a general description of the devolution of society. [OPIOIDS ARE A PERFECT FIT]

As you read the list yourself, you’ll see more implications/possibilities.

Here, from 1955, quoted verbatim from the Agency document, are the types of drugs the MKULTRA men at the CIA were looking for:

* Substances which will promote illogical thinking and impulsiveness to the point where the recipient would be discredited in public. [OPIOIDS PROMOTE ILLOGICAL THINKING]

* Substances which increase the efficiency of mentation and perception.

* Materials which will prevent or counteract the intoxicating effect of alcohol.

* Materials which will promote the intoxicating effect of alcohol.

* Materials which will produce the signs and symptoms of recognized diseases in a reversible way so that they may be used for malingering, etc.

* Materials which will render the induction of hypnosis easier or otherwise enhance its usefulness. [OPIOIDS ARE PERFECT FOR THIS PURPOSE]

* Substances which will enhance the ability of individuals to withstand privation, torture and coercion during interrogation and so-called “brain-washing”.

* Materials and physical methods which will produce amnesia for events preceding and during their use. [OPIOIDS ARE USEFUL FOR CREATING AMNESIA]

* Physical methods of producing shock and confusion over extended periods of time and capable of surreptitious use. [OPIOIDS PRODUCE CONFUSION]

* Substances which produce physical disablement such as paralysis of the legs, acute anemia, etc.

* Substances which will produce “pure” euphoria with no subsequent let-down.

* Substances which alter personality structure in such a way that the tendency of the recipient to become dependent upon another person is enhanced. [OPIOIDS ARE PERFECT]

* A material which will cause mental confusion of such a type that the individual under its influence will find it difficult to maintain a fabrication under questioning. [OPIOIDS POSSIBLY USEFUL]

* Substances which will lower the ambition and general working efficiency of men when administered in undetectable amounts. [OPIOIDS PERFECT BUT RIGHT OUT IN THE OPEN]

* Substances which promote weakness or distortion of the eyesight or hearing faculties, preferably without permanent effects.

* A knockout pill which can surreptitiously be administered in drinks, food, cigarettes, as an aerosol, etc., which will be safe to use, provide a maximum of amnesia, and be suitable for use by agent types on an ad hoc basis. [HIGH DOSE OPIOIDS]

* A material which can be surreptitiously administered by the above routes and which in very small amounts will make it impossible for a man to perform any physical activity whatsoever. [OPIOIDS OUT IN THE OPEN, IN HIGH DOSE]

That’s the list.

If you examine the full range of psychiatric drugs developed since 1955 [plus opioids], you’ll see that a number of them fit the CIA’s agenda. Speed-type chemicals, which addle the brain over the long term, to treat so-called ADHD.

Anti-psychotic drugs, to render patients more and more dependent on others (and government) as they sink into profound disability and incur motor brain damage. And of course, the SSRI antidepressants, like Prozac and Paxil and Zoloft, which produce extreme and debilitating highs and lows—and also push people over the edge into committing violence.

These drugs drag the whole society down into lower and lower levels of consciousness and action.

If that’s the goal of a very powerful and clandestine government agency…it’s succeeding.

    Thank you for your insights!

  2. PS: I believe we have been given everything we need not only to survive but thrive. God created our brains & CNS with opiate receptors (Mu receptors) for a reason. I don’t advocate the abuse of anything (including food!). And there are other plants that are capable of relieving pain (as well as treating a host of other ailments) as well. I guess the point I’m attempting to arrive at, is that opiates shouldn’t be demonized. They absolutely should not be abused or used by kids. But, for those suffering horrible, all consuming pain, it really is a Godsend. And I wholeheartedly believe our Creator knew what he was doing when the planet was formed & later filled with life. Even so-called ‘poisonous’ plants have medicinal benefits if/when used properly..bella donna taken in large amounts can have disastrous results, but the same plant when consumed in a smaller amount can be used to treat certain parasite get the idea. I tend to be far more suspicious of big pharma & synthesized drugs, even though they’re legal.

  3. Opioids do NOT cause amnesia! It’s NOT a mind-altering drug. It does have the ability to create dependence as well as addiction. But, these allegations are 100% FALSE. As a chronic pain sufferer, I’m beyond annoyed with the ongoing BS parroted in the see-eye-aye controlled media. There IS an epidemic, no doubt. But, chronic pain sufferers have not been receiving adequate relief. I for one am no longer taking anything & have no quality of life, but the high % of suicides from military/vets/etc. is due to intractable pain and inadequate pain management. Drs are terrified of losing their licenses or being audited for prescribing controlled pain meds for legitimate ailments. Most people then turn to the streets for relief. Relief, not to get high, although I realize there are scores of people using opiates for that reason alone. The heroin coming in from Afghanistan is laced with fentanyl &/or carfentanil. Now, I ask you..does anyone think this is merely by chance?? It’s not cost-effective to cut dope w/the synthetics (fentanyl or carfentanil), plus dope dealers are in the business to make money & NOT kill off their customer base. So, again, I you believe this is merely by chance?? Many media outlets report on seizures of heroin coming in from Mexico, but they’re not actively reporting on heroin coming in from Afghanistan. Do the math people. I agree that this has been orchestrated & that it’s easier to control people by means of dependency, but I disagree that opiates/opioids cause amnesia or are debilitating, unless the person using them is whacked out of their minds on the stuff (taking copious amounts, to the point of blacking out). There has been an all out assault on the population through our water supplies, food, vaccines, various chemicals in our environment, our skies, etcetera. Using opiates that are tainted w/high levels of powerful synthetic opioids to kill off vast numbers of people is just another means of effective elimination. Given the current stigma that’s associated with these drugs, most just write off the deaths in an apathetic way…considering them somehow less than human…just druggies or junkies, as if they deserved to die, while not looking at the bigger picture.
