J. Kaye & H.P. Albarelli on Peter B Collins Radio Show: Roots of CIA torture and mind control tactics

Dr. Jeffrey Kaye, a [psychologist], and author H. P. Albarelli, Jr. talk about the upcoming trial of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed -- who we know was tortured -- and the history of CIA torture and mind control programs, including the infamous Project MK-Ultra and the use of LSD. We talk about an article they wrote for, available here. Kaye is a longtime critic of Bush-era policies of rendition and torture, and Albarelli’s powerful new book exposes the history back to the early 1950’s A Terrible Mistake: The Murder of Frank Olson and the CIA’s Secret Cold War Experiments. Albarelli’s book is chilling and fascinating, and shows that the US has been operating on “the dark side”, as Cheney called it, for decades. He describes the importance of the Olson case, and the large numbers of people–including children–who were slipped LSD by the CIA.
