George Knapp was joined by former mind-control victim Cathy O'Brien along with Mark Phillips, the former government employee who deprogrammed her. Together, they discussed her amazing story of surviving the MK Ultra program. O'Brien said that during her time in the program "there was much torture and trauma that was deliberately and systematically used" to turn her into a pliable human automaton. She alleged that, from there, she was used for a number of nefarious deeds, including sexual and criminal acts. She also asserted that high ranking politicians had a hand in her lengthy period of abuse.
Having been tipped off from his sources inside the intelligence community, Phillips used some "codes and keys" to break O'Brien from her spell. He said that such triggers included starting a conversation with the statement "this is God" and directing her to read Psalm 37:37 in the Bible. Phillips claimed that at the time of her rescue, O'Brien had "no awareness of anything that happened to her" and didn't even know her own name nor real age. The pair, along with O'Brien's daughter Kelly, then escaped to Alaska. It was there, O'Brien said, that she felt safe for the first time which "allowed me to remember the things I'd been tortured to forget."
O'Brien indicated that what compelled the pair to come forward with their story was a quest to find help for Kelly, who was also a victim of the mind control program. They explained that Kelly had been subjected to a more modernized form of mind control called "harmonic technologies." Phillips described the technique as using sound frequencies to scar the brain and "re-route the person's ability to think." This fragments the victim's mind in ways similar to earlier, more trauma-based methods. The technique is so invasive, they said, that Kelly has yet to make a complete recovery from her abuse due to extensive damage to her brain stem.
Cathy O'Brien was born into a multi-generational incest abusive family. Her father, with a 4th grade education, was a worm digger for local fishermen, all while producing child pornography of Cathy and her siblings. He was allegedly caught sending this porn through the US mail when Cathy was about 5 years old, at which time a faction of the CIA made a deal with her father to sell her into the CIA's mind control project in exchange for immunity from prosecution and immediately became the vice president of a newly formed private corporation dedicated as a military industrial supplier. Her sworn testimonies of abuse and torture by her father and the CIA was proven and tested through the US courts and was presented to both Houses of Congress, and the U.N. only to be stopped from all future adjudication under the US National Security Act.
Project MKUltra was the code name for a covert research operation experimenting in the behavioral engineering of humans through the CIA's Scientific Intelligence Division. The program began in the early 1950s, was officially sanctioned in 1953, was reduced in scope in 1964, further curtailed in 1967 and officially halted in 1973. The program engaged in many illegal activities; in particular it used unwitting U.S. and Canadian citizens as its test subjects, which led to controversy regarding its legitimacy. MKUltra involved the use of many methodologies to manipulate people's individual mental states and alter brain functions, including the surreptitious administration of drugs (especially LSD) and other chemicals, hypnosis, sensory deprivation, isolation, verbal and sexual abuse, as well as various forms of torture.
The scope of Project MKUltra was broad, with research undertaken at 80 institutions, including 44 colleges and universities, as well as hospitals, prisons and pharmaceutical companies. The CIA operated through these institutions using front organizations, although sometimes top officials at these institutions were aware of the CIA's involvement. MKUltra was allocated 6 percent of total CIA funds.
Project MKUltra was first brought to public attention in 1975 by the Church Committee of the U.S. Congress, and a Gerald Ford commission to investigate CIA activities within the United States. Investigative efforts were hampered by the fact that CIA Director Richard Helms ordered all MKUltra files destroyed in 1973; the Church Committee and Rockefeller Commission investigations relied on the sworn testimony of direct participants and on the relatively small number of documents that survived Helms' destruction order.
In 1977, a Freedom of Information Act request uncovered a cache of 20,000 documents relating to project MKUltra, which led to Senate hearings later that same year. In July of 2001 some surviving information regarding MKUltra was officially declassified.
