CIA brain experiments pursued in veterans suit
Key Excerpts from Article on Website of Washington Post

In 1961, a top CIA scientist reported in an internal memo that "the feasibility of remote control of activities in several species of animals has been demonstrated ... Special investigations and evaluations will be conducted toward the application of selected elements of these techniques to man," according to The Search for the "Manchurian Candidate: The CIA and Mind Control, a 1979 book by former State Department intelligence officer John Marks. [T]his cold-blooded project, Marks wrote, was designed ... for the delivery of chemical and biological agents or for executive action-type operations, according to a document. Executive action was the CIA's euphemism for assassination. Victims have sought justice for years, in vain. Now, almost 40 years later, a federal magistrate has ordered the CIA to produce records and witnesses about the LSD and other experiments allegedly conducted on thousands of soldiers from 1950 through 1975. U.S. Magistrate Judge John Larsens Nov. 17 order exempted the agency from having to testify about electrode tests on humans, but Gordon P. Erspamer, lead attorney for the veterans, says we are pursuing this as well. Papers filed in the case describe electrical devices implanted in brain tissue with electrodes in various regions, including the hippocampus, the hypothalamus, the frontal lobe (via the septum), the cortex and various other places, Erspamer said.
