Wikileaks info on death of Frank Olson?

by Reopen Investigation of CIA MKULTRA Tuesday, Dec. 07, 2010 at 10:41 AM

For several decades CIA agents conducted covert operation domestically against the U.S. population under several codes names, MK ULTRA, Project Bluebird, Project Artichoke where several methods of psychological operations were used against the people of the U.S. to measure their responses, including ELF frequencies for training "Manchurian candidates" as sleeper assassins to use against enemy leaders.

, 06.12.2010 18:39







Researcher Frank Olson died under unusual circumstances after investigating CIA psychological operations against the domestic U.S. populations, including but not limited to prisoners, psychiatric patients, schoolchildren, military personal and many others in the health and services industires.

We need heroes like Julian Assange to take the risk of reprisal for the great public service of revealing this suppessed information.

Thank you Julian Assange, be safe and be blessed!!



The cold war’s darkest secret







"For two decades—beginning that grim November morning in 1953 when those austere men brought the news that my father had “fallen or jumped” out the window—it was a story that my family did not know how to tell.





For two more decades—following revelations in 1975 about the administration of LSD by the CIA to a group of scientists at Deep Creek Lake—it was a shock that would not subside. Then in 1994—after I had the body exhumed and the forensic report was delivered, and again in 1996 when the New York District Attorney opened a murder investigation of the by-then forty-three year old death—it became a case that was nearly impossible to believe. Now in May 2000—as the DA’s office nears completion of its four-year grand jury investigation—it has become an enterprise whose scale, complexity, and implications are as difficult to fathom as its weight is diffcult to bear.

I have been standing at the center of this dizzying enterprise, simultaneously prodding it into existence, keeping it moving, and blinking in disbelief as it grows beyond me. Writing in The London Mail on Sunday in August 1998 the highly esteemed espionage historian Phillip Knightley and journalist Kevin Dowling called my father’s death “the Cold War’s darkest secret.”

In order to bring that secret to light I have set myself up as a broker of fragments. By gathering, synthesizing, relaying, and leveraging bits of information within a constantly expanding network I have sought to advance the story on a variety of fronts, relying on a dispersed collection of allies.

This is an ambitious project, but my preparation to undertake it has been a long one.

Before the initial facts about my father’s case had emerged, when I was in graduate school at Harvard, I had already collaborated on many research and writing projects with Yale University psychiatrist and psychohistorian Robert Jay Lifton that have a dramatic, almost uncanny relevance to the work I am currently pursuing. Lifton’s early book on brainwashing (Thought Reform and the Psychology of Totalism, 1961), his subsequent work on the psychology of survivors (including Death in Life: Survivors of Hiroshima, 1967; Home from the War: Vietnam Veterans, Neither Victims nor Executioners, 1974; The Broken Connection: On Death and the Continuity of Life, 1983), and his later book on Nazi medical experimentation (The Nazi Doctors, 1986), provide uncannily pertinent models for investigation of and reflection upon my father’s case.

Lifton and I co-authored one of the early books on the psychology of dying (Living and Dying, 1974), co-authored an article in the medical journal Psychiatry on the survivors of the 1972 Buffalo Creek West Virginia flood (“The Human Meaning of Total Disaster: The Buffalo Creek Experience”), and co-edited Explorations in Psychohistory. Lifton dedicated a book on innovative psychological theory on which I labored intensively, The Life of the Self: Toward a New Psychology (1976), to me.



The CIA’s LSD experiment ended my father’s life and profoundly distorted my own. Even before I knew that LSD and the CIA were involved in producing these effects I had already begun a research program to counteract them. I was looking for a formative psychological technique that could exert a force opposite to the deformative one I could feel but whose source I could not yet locate and name—a sort of antitoxin for psychic trauma. I discovered such a technique in what I came to call “the collage method.”*

A medium whose essence is the overlapping of images, collage is literally based upon the logic of the coverup. In collage, however, this logic works not as a technique for blocking thought, but rather as a model of the mind’s fundamental process of representation and symbolization.

The story of this other research program functions as a psychological counterplot in the book I am writing. It crisscrosses the CIA plot in surprising and often ironic ways. In the course of my own search the collage method served several functions. I employed it as a detective's microscope in the search for a solution to the mystery of my father’s death, and as an open system for symbolic development, a psychological incubator that represented the converse of the CIA’s closed system of manipulative mind-control experiments. Having come to this technique largely in response to the trauma of my father's death, I think of the collage method as a serum extracted from a disease.

My book seeks to provide a bridge between an horrendous, shattering episode and a vision that transcends it. The aim is to move beyond both CIA scandal and personal trauma by making a contribution to historical consciousness and to psychological theory and clinical method. Collage figures centrally in this aspiration because this medium comprises a membrane between collective and individual representations, and between mind-control (enslavement to static images or to a pre-programmed, fixed code) and mental freedom (the capacity for continuous symbolization and psychic re-creation)."
