Bobby is seven years old, but this is not the first time he has been subjected to electroshock. It’s his third time. In all, over the next year, Bobby will experience eight electroshock sessions. Placed on the examining table, he is held down by two male attendants while the physician places a solution on his temples. Bobby struggles with the two men holding him down, but his efforts are useless. He cries out and tries to pull away. One of the attendants tries to force a thick wedge of rubber into his mouth. He turns his head sharply away and cries out, “Let me go, please. I don’t want to be here. Please, let me go.” Bobby’s physician looks irritated and she tells him, “Come on now, Bobby, try to act like a big boy and be still and relax.” Bobby turns his head away from the woman and opens his mouth for the wedge that will prevent him from biting through his tongue. He begins to cry silently, his small shoulders shaking and he stiffens his body against what he knows is coming.
Many of the experiments used drugs that have known side effects of neutropenia.

Thank you. I would add that these people were just a few of the many participating as CIA contractors out of Johns Hopkins, Georgetown University Hospital, and other prestigious institutions – always under the radar, of course, which is pretty convenient when you have a mission to be secret and a black budget. For those commenters who find it difficult to believe even after reading such a thoroughly supported article, just consider this was the tip of the iceberg. As for motive, it was ultimately about power and control. How much can the mind be manipulated for the “good” of mankind? How much can the brain and brain development be manipulated? (As was stated, the origins of these programs were in Nazi Germany and brought here thanks to a program called PROJECT PAPERCLIP.) I spent second half of the sixties, from age six to age 10 in a drug-induced daze or throwing up because of the effects of the drugs. My Naval Intelligence father – who had been led to believe I was in a “gifted child” program and was kept in the dark about what was being done – finally made the connection when he had to rush me to the hospital. He pulled me out of the program immediately, and was burned for his trouble and blacklisted for the rest of his life. (I actually had to be sent across the country to a safehouse; it might sound like a movie but I can assure you it was very very real and horrifying.) Our family has waited decades for more of this information to become public, hoping it was only a matter of time. There are good people working in the CIA with genuinely good intentions, but the CIA as an institution is an agent of absolute evil. It only takes one glance at the horror that is Blackwater (and there is a connection, but I won’t go into it here) to understand this.
