Project MK Ultra (AKA the CIA’s in-no-way heinous mind control experiment) was officially sanctioned on this day in 1953. The project involved the CIA secretly performing experiments (including torture, sexual abuse and administering mind-altering substances) on U.S. and Canadian citizens. At least one subject — CIA employee Frank Olson — jumped to his death from a 13th story window after the CIA secretly slipped LSD into his drink. So, I guess the moral of this post is:
Especially the sketchy guy at the bar who keeps whispering into his lapel and sending you Appletini’s.
