MK-Ultra by Zach Oetting


          Over the years, the government has hidden over one billion classified federal records from the American population (MK-ULTRA 1). Tens of thousands of those records consist of information about Project MK-Ultra 130 (MK-ULTRA 1). Project MK Ultra, also known as the CIA mind control program, is the name of a program that conducted experiments on human subjects and was undertaken by the United States Central Intelligence Agency. The experiments were intended to develop various drugs to be used in interrogations in order to weaken the individual’s consciousness through mind control (MK-ULTRA 1). All documents related to MK-Ultra were incinerated and kept from the people of the United States. The program was started in 1955 and halted in 1973, but people believe this program is still conducting experiments to this day (Mk-Ultra 1). Celebrities such as Shaquille O Neal, Britney Spears, Beyonce, Kanye West , etc. are believed to be under mind control by MK-Ultra (Mk-Ultra 1). Some people wonder if MK-Ultra was actually real, if they still conducting experiments today, and if they are putting celebrities under mind control. This paper will provide concrete evidence to answer these questions.

Character Analysis

During the beginning of the Cold War, the United States feared that the North Korean, Soviet, and Chinese agents were using mind control on U.S. prisoners of war to brainwash them. In response, MK-Ultra was created and run by chemist and poison expert, Sidney Gottlieb (Torture, LSD And A 'Poisoner In Chief' 1). Gottlieb first joined the CIA in 1951 as a poison expert and headed the chemical division of the Technical Services Staff (Torture, LSD And A 'Poisoner In Chief' 1). He became known as the “Black Sorcerer and “Dirty Trickster” for his shrewd understanding of producing different poisons and how they can be used in experiments for mind control (Torture, LSD And A 'Poisoner In Chief' 1). He made pills, potions, and powders that could instantly kill or cripple without leaving a single trace (The CIA Search for Mind Control 1). Most of Gottlieb’s experiments were conducted by giving large amounts of LSD, which is an intense psychedelic drug that causes hallucinations and dissociation, to unwitting subjects through “techniques that would crush the human psyche to the point that it would admit anything.” (Torture, LSD And A 'Poisoner In Chief' 1). Gottlieb is now known as the man who brought LSD to America and the godfather of the entire LSD counterculture. He ordered the CIA to pay $240,000 for the entire world’s supply of LSD (Torture, LSD And A 'Poisoner In Chief' 1). He began handing out LSD to prisons, hospitals, clinics, and other institutions for “research projects” to see how people reacted to the drug and whether or not it could be used for mind control (Kinzer, Stephen 4). Many people who volunteered for the experiments found the LSD pleasurable and told their friends about it (Kinzer, Stephen 4). Famous celebrities such as Ken Kensey, Robert Hunter, and Allen Ginsberg, used Sidney Gottlieb’s LSD, but none of these people knew his name (Kinzer, Stephen 4). Gottlieb was behind the scenes orchestrating the experiments. One prisoner who volunteered for what he thought was a cure for schizophrenia, was given LSD every single day for over a year, later realized that it had nothing to do with schizophrenia and that he was a guinea pig in this experiment (Kinzer, Stephen 6). They were using him to see what his long term reaction to LSD would be. He said that he felt like he was going insane and that it was horrific (Kinzer, Stephen 6). He was in prison for committing a crime but he felt they were committing an even bigger crime on him.
The CIA, with Gottlieb established secret detention centers throughout Europe, East Asia, Japan, Germany and the Philippines (Kinzer, Stephen 7). They were mostly under the control of America so Gottlieb did not have to worry about legalities in these countries. They would capture enemy agents and other people that they felt were “expendable” (Kinzer, Stephen 7). They put them in cells to test them with drugs, as well as other techniques like electroshock, extreme temperatures, and sensory isolation (Kinzer, Stephen 9). Gottlieb wanted to see if he could break down the human ego. He designed ways to understand and destroy the human mind. He was known to be compassionate at times, but was one of the most prolific torturers of all times. He had a legal license to kill whenever he wanted to without having anyone looking over his shoulder and did not have to file any reports.

This guy [Sidney Gottlieb] had a license to kill. He was allowed to requisition human subjects across the United States and around the world and subject them to any kind of abuse that he wanted, even up to the level of it being fatal — yet nobody looked over his shoulder. (Torture, LSD And A 'Poisoner In Chief' 1)

He was trying to find a way to control the mind and the intention was to lead the CIA to global world power. When his boss, Richard Helms was removed by President Nixon in 1972, Gottlieb knew it was just a matter of time before he would be gone (Kinzer, Stephen 10). Helms was the only person in the CIA who really knew what Gottleib was up to (Kinzer, Stephen 10). They agreed that they should destroy all records of what they had done (Kinzer, Stephen 11). Although most of the records were destroyed, there is still information that can be put together to explain what he did.

Sydney Gottlieb grew up in a neighborhood in the Bronx (Kinzer, Stephen 14). His parents were Orthodox Jews from Hungary (Kinzer, Stephen 15). He lived in a bustling area with ample opportunity for smart kids like him. But Sydney stood out from the other kids. He was born with deformed feet and for most of his childhood he could not walk (Kinzer, Stephen 16). His family’s business made enough to pay for operations and he finally walked without braces at the age of 12 (Kinzer, Stephen 17). He also had a stuttering problem (Kinzer, Stephen 18). His classmates harassed him and he was left out and ostracized by both disabilities (Kinzer, Stephen 19). He was very smart and excelled in college. He won awards and took classes to help his speech (Kinzer, Stephen 21). Gottlieb tried to enlist in the army but was turned down and it upset him very much (Kinzer, Stephen 24). He wanted to serve his country so he found a different way to serve by working for the FDA (Kinzer, Stephen 25). He had children and was moving into a path towards being a government scientist.

At one time, Sydney Gottlieb was known for his public service and charitable actions. In the end he will always be known for his link to LSD, mind control and torturous experiments. It seems that he was compassionate in some ways but there had to be something very evil inside his mind. He was carried away by the power to destroy others. I believe the trauma in his childhood from his disabilities might have led him to seek revenge on others. Not many people are handed that power with no consequences but Gottlieb had all the power and resources he needed. His obituaries and articles after his death call him an assassin, a poisoner, even a mad scientist. He is the sole reason for the making of MK-Ultra and the conspiracies surrounding it.


MK-Ultra was active from 1953 to 1973, but details about the illicit program were not released to the public until 1975, during a worldwide congressional investigation into widespread illegal CIA activities (MK-Ultra 1). Information in the documents released about the MK-Ultra is very brief and does not give full, concrete evidence about these experiments and how they were conducted, which leave people unsatisfied and giving many questions. Three main conspiracies made by the public about MK-Ultra are;

1.      Is it real?

2.      Is it still conducting experiments today?

3.      Are celebrities being mind controlled by MK-Ultra?

            The first conspiracy theory of whether it was real or not is the most questioned theory of all. Although there are declassified documents that prove the existence of MK-Ultra, some people do not believe that they conducted inhumane mind control experiments on unwitting subjects. Accordingly, there are CIA documents that point to these experiments being real. In the declassified file “Project MKULTRA, Subproject 8”, there is proof of the approval of Sidney Gottlieb’s request of mass amounts of LSD costing a total of $39,500.00 dollars (Project MKULTRA, Subproject 8 1). A page of MKULTRA, which is a collection of declassified CIA documents regarding MK-Ultra, states that the program conducted experiments on dogs by “utilizing permanent septal electrodes in the brain of selected species of canines in order to determine the locus in which stimulations will produce specific reactions” (PROPOSAL 1) Valerie Wolf, Christine DeNicola, and Claudia Mullen are alleged victims of MK-Ultra’s experiments and protested their testimonies in court (Valerie Wolf, Claudia Mullen, and Christine DeNicola Testimonies 1). In Christine DeNicola’s testimony, she states:

These horrible experiments have profoundly affected my life. I developed Multiple Personality Disorder because his goal was to split my mind into as many parts as possible so he could control me totally. He failed, but I have to endure years of constant physical, mental and emotional pain even to this day. (Valerie Wolf, Claudia Mullen, and Christine DeNicola Testimonies 1)

The existence of MK-Ultra and its experiments is very plausible and can be proven with evidence.

            The second conspiracy theory is whether or not MK-Ultra is still conducting experiments today. MK-Ultra officially ended in 1973 when CIA Director Richard Helms ordered the destruction of MK-Ultra and all files related to it, but how do we know it still isn’t happening today (MK-Ultra 1). In Moscow, Russia, the Psychotechnology Research Group created a dungeon-like room where they conduct experiments that can “read the subconscious mind and alter behavior” (Weinberger 1).  ave been working on a project called the “MindReader 2.0” which is able to alter behavior and the subconscious mind on command. These experiments caught the attention of the American DHS (Department of Homeland Safety) (Weinberger 1). They were so interested in these experiments that they considered buying all of their technology to bring back to America (Weinberger 1). The government is also producing “microwave weapons” which are used for riot control (Broad 1). These weapons send loud “booms and voices” into people’s heads through radiation waves (Broad 1). These weapons are claimed to be unlethal, but many Americans believe it can cause permanent psychological damage such as Multiple Personality Disorder or schizophrenia (Broad 1). This conspiracy is potentially true, but there is no concrete evidence to prove it.

            The final conspiracy is whether or not celebrities are being mind-controlled by MK-Ultra or the government. It is believed that celebrities are brainwashed before signing unfair contracts to a record label or recording company and are “selling their soul” to Hollywood. This means that they can not have their own opinion on certain topics and have to believe what Hollywood or MK-Ultra wants them to believe. Celebrities talk about their alter egos or act very differently at times and this is believed to be trauma caused from MK-Ultra mind control programming. The MK-Ultra mind control programming consists of electroshock torture, molestation, not being allowed to sleep and various other horrible things. This conspiracy is the least plausible since there is no evidence of these claims.


Almost fifty years after the disappearance of MK-Ultra, countless conspiracies still remain. The three most questioned theories are; whether or not it was real, if they are still conducting experiments today, and if celebrities are being mind controlled. The horrendous crimes committed by MK-Ultra left an enduring mark on the CIA and Sidney Gottlieb’s name. The program was “officially” stopped in 1973, but if they kept it a secret from us then, how do we know they won’t keep it a secret from us now?

Malaysian Flight 370 Conspiracy by Abigail Spooner

How is it possible for a plane full of more than 200 passengers and crew to disappear into thin air? Was it a product of a corrupt government? Something supernatural? These are all questions that form the conspiracy theory around the disappearance of Malaysian Airlines Flight 370. In 2014, the plane left Kuala Lumpur on course to Beijing but mysteriously never landed at its’ destination. What happened to the aircraft? Why has there been so little media coverage over the disappearance? Let’s take a look and uncover this unsettling tale. 
Image result for malaysia flight 370
            Zaharie Ahmad Shah was the 53-year-old, native Malaysian, veteran pilot in command of Malaysian Airlines Flight 370. He was the top of his class and had connections that made James Bond look like an introvert. He was married with three children (Guy Birchall 1) and was considered accomplished and trustworthy. With around 18,423 hours of flight (Guy Birchall 1) under his belt there was no question of his loyalty to his country and his people. On paper, he was perfect. A family man, smart, kind, charismatic, and had a shining record, that is until he snapped. 
Zaharie’s marriage was crumbling leading up to the plane’s disappearance. His wife, Faizah Khanum Mustafa Khan, and daughter, Aishah Zaharie, claimed that he was “distracted and withdrawn in the weeks before the aircraft’s disappearance – and refused pleas to attend some marriage counselling sessions.” ('He wasn't the father I knew. He was lost and disturbed': Daughter of MH370 pilot raises alarming new questions about his state of mind in weeks before plane's disappearance 1) Zaharie reportedly retreated into his room where “he had installed an elaborate Microsoft flight simulator. He flew it frequently, and often posted to online forums about his hobby.” (William Langwiesche, 1) He became resigned and isolated in the days leading up to the crash. It was apparent that he wasn’t in his right mind. 
Something was off about Zaharie. In the year prior to the planes disappearance he continuously harassed and borderline stalked two Malaysian models, Lan Qi Hui and Qi Min Lan, with sexually suggestive Facebook comments all while being married with a wife and kids (The MH370 captain, the twin sister models and some VERY creepy messages: How 53-year-old married pilot of doomed Malaysia Airlines flight bombarded young Instagram stars with Facebook posts 1). He also made comments about the Malaysian Prime Minister at the time, Najib Razark, Alex Chapman for Daily Mail Australia reported: “In April 2013, leading up to the Malaysian elections, Zaharie posted 119 times, all in reflection of his disgust with the Naijb government. The following month, after the Najib party secured another five-year term, Zaharie wrote: 'There is a rebel in each and every one of us. Let it out!'” (Alex Chapman 1). Zaharie;s internet footprint is an alarming and unnerving sight to see. He was blatantly anti-government and seemed to have no fear of any consequences that could come out of his actions. He was obviously confident in his role as a senior pilot and had no problem speaking his political views, regardless of the weight and responsibility of his job.

Numerous theories have stemmed from Zaharie’s questionable choices. The planes disappearance was obviously intentional, but what was the reason? Was it an act of terrorism? A political statement? His grand finale after years of isolation and depression? His character is complex and unsettling. An upstanding citizen from most, but a predator and creep from others. 
            The first conspiracy theory surprisingly has nothing to do with our leading character, Zaharie Ahmad Shah. This theory is the least far-fetched and has a completely logical explanation. Aviation expert, Christine Negroni, has suggested that “the tragic jet's demise may have been caused by a sudden depressurizing of the cabin killing everybody on board.” (Meyjes 1) the conspiracy is that co-pilot, Fariq Abdul Hamid, oversaw the controls while Captain Shah was on a break. The plane depressurized, killing all passengers and crew within 15 minutes except for Shah and Hamid, due to them being in the heavily insulated cockpit. The lack of oxygen led to a series of loopy-brained choices made by the two men, ultimately crashing the plane. (Meyjes 1)
The second conspiracy theory is not that far of a reach. It’s believed that the plane was crashed intentionally by Shah because he wanted to “create the world’s greatest mystery” (Malaysia Airlines MH370: 15 conspiracy theories 1) Leading up to the crash Shah had made comments about how interested he was with mysteries and its not that surprising because he did have a flight simulator of the exact path the flight ended up taking in a bedroom of his home. This was no coincidence. Shah planned this for months in advance.
The last conspiracy theory is, undoubtably, the most interesting. Aliens. Alien abduction. All evidence aside, or lack-there-of, this conspiracy is the most intriguing. Alexandra Bruce form Forbidden Knowledge TV (Malaysia Airlines MH370: 15 conspiracy theories 1) looked at the planes radar moments before the crash. In her analysis she claims to have seen some sort of spec or blip on the radar and her only explanation was of course, aliens. This is the most stretched conspiracy, but it is a little bit better than believing one man killed over 200 people just to go down in the mystery hall of fame.

Malaysian Flight 370 is still a mystery. There are many theories over how or why it disappeared, and we may never find out. But what we do know is that it was a tragedy. Over 200 innocent people died whether it was at the hands of one man, or just because of a small mistake. Zaharie Ahmad Shah was a challenged man. He was angry and obviously had a hidden agenda. This is a story of great mystery but also a story of a lack of responsibility. The Malaysian government overlooked controversial comments made by Shah because of his seniority in the aviation world. Let this be a reminder of trust and responsibility.

The Death of Elisa Lam By Erika Flores

        Image result for elisa lam 
           On February 13, 2013 the guests at the Cecil Hotel started to complain about the water having an unsettling taste, a muddy color and an indescribable smell. After many complaints the hotel sent maintenance to check the water tank. The blooded, naked body of Elisa Lam was found inside a locked water tank, located on the rooftop of the Cecil Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles. To this day, nobody knows for sure what caused her death or how her body got up there. Although the disturbing death of Elisa Lam was ruled an accidental drowning, due to her mysterious death caused multiple conspiracy theories to come about how she died.
Image result for elisa lamImage result for elisa lam

Elisa Lam, age 21 was a college student at the University of British Colombia in Vancouver Canada (Lawson 1). She was a good person. However, it was well known that she struggled with a mental illness. That required her to be under several medications for the rest of her life. Her depression would get so bad she had to drop several classes the previous semester (“Archive”). She started using her Tumblr as her online journal (1). She would go in-depth about how hopeless she felt and the struggles of having depression. Seeing the best life had to offer was challenging but she knew there was more. Despite her struggles, she also had a passion for art, poetry, fashion, and she often posted reminders on why not everything can always bad (1). One of her last posts said;
I had a catch-up reunion with high school people and a sort of bon voyage soiree and I’m fatigued/ exhausted/ in recovery for seeing so many people and doing so many stupid idiotic things in the last 4 days. But I am so very full of… I suppose the term would be, as Dumbledore says, love because last night was evidence that I do have amazing beautiful things in my life and even though everyone is busy and going off doing great things they do care about me. I’m not a profession depressed person. I am so much more than that and these people are my reminder that I am very lucky. Life is long and difficult, but it is worth it so long as you have special moments. So, what if everything is shit and plants have gone to hell. If I ask for help, someone might be willing to spare a hand. Thank you, friends and family. (1)
 Shortly after this, Elisa started posting more optimistically. Elisa was fighting her illness, everything she would post seem like it was a reminder to herself to not let her illness win. In January 2013 she posted she would be taking a solo trip through the west coast, San Diego, Los Angeles, Santa Cruz, and San Francisco (1). She never made it past Los Angeles.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               Her parents were not concern with Elisa taking this trip because she was in contact with them at all time but after a few days of Elisa not checking in, they decided to get in contact with the LAPD as this was not her normal behavior. They went to the media to alert people with what was going on and asked for anyone to come forward if knew any information. With no luck, the officers decided to release the bizarre video of Elisa’s last moments alive. The strange video of Elisa had caught the public’s attention and speculation about what may have happened started to take over the internet. A variety of theories about the tragedy, involving anything from suicide, murder, and conspiracies of evil spirits started to surface everywhere.    
One of the conspiracy theories was Elisa was possessed by the evil spirits in the hotel. The Cecil Hotel which was known for its unusual past. When it first opened in the 1920s and it was a major hot spot known for having some of the richest guests (Murtaugh 1). Shortly after it opened, they had to adjust it become a low-cost hotel. It had become a worn-down hotel in a worn-down area tracking prostitute addicts and low-income people. Throughout the years, the hotel became known for the multiple deaths from unnatural causes, accidents, murders, or suicides it was so well known for all the horrible acts that you now can ride a tour bus to go visit and hear about the hotels history. It is believed one or several of the victims’ souls are trapped and haunting the living guests in the hotel. The oldest case know of is Helen Gurnee in 1954 next in line was Julia Moore in 1962 and after them Pauline cotton in 1962 they all jumped from upper-level windows. When Pauline jumped out of the hotel she landed on and took the life of a woman passing by (1). A jane doe in 1975 that either jumped or got pushed out of a window of the hotel, it is still unsolved (1). The hotel had not one but two serial killers call this place their home where they would bring women in to kill them, in 1985 Richard Ramirez also known as the “Nightstalker” and in 1991 Jack Unterweger who had a criminal record for doing this before (1). With this dark past, it is obvious some would believe what happened  to Elisa lam was an act of witchcraft

Another conspiracy theory about Elisa Lam’s death was a result of the elevator game. The hotel video where Elisa is seen frantically pushing all the buttons in the elevator and talking to what we can only assume is herself plays a major key in the theory about a game that takes you to another dimension. The game was created in Korea. The rules are you must be in a 10+ story building and the elevator alone. If someone is in the elevator with you, it won't work. 1. Get on the elevator on the 1st floor. 2. Press 4 and when you reach the 4th floor, don't get out and press 2. 3. When you reach the 2nd floor, press 6. 4. When you reach the 6th floor, press 2. 5. When you reach the 2nd floor, press10. 6.when you reach the 10th floor, press 5. 7.when you reach the 5th floor, a woman will come in. that woman is not human. Don’t talk or look at her. If you do, she will take you away. 8 press 1, and if the elevator instead starts going up to the 10th floor, then you have succeeded. You will have reached another world where there is no one except you. 9. If you get off at the 10th floor, the girl will ask, “where are you going?” but don’t answer (“Elevator Game”). There are rules in the elevator game to return but, in this case, the player died. The reason why people believe she was playing the game is because she was seen scared pressing multiple buttons, hiding and the elevator doors would not close. It is assumed she broke rule number 7, she was not supposed to talk to the the woman-like figure, however she did, so the demon-woman killed her.

Many others believe Elisa was murdered by a worker at the hotel, the plot behind this is that someone that worked at the hotel did it. This person would have access to the cameras, keys, and they would have known that she was alone, and what days she was going to check out. Where to stand to not be seen, and what times would be the most appropriate to talk to her without witnesses being around. Whoever this theory was debunked by the police there was no evidence of foul play or any reason to believe she was with someone that night.
The most believed theory talks about how Elisa stopped taking her mediation and lost it. she had been posting about how much she was enjoying herself, so she could have possibly believed she had it under control. She was under 4 different psychotic medication for her bipolar disorder her medication was Wellbutrin, Effexor, Lamictal, Seroquel, and Dexedrine (Hammett 1). However, in her autopsy, they couldn’t find any trace of her medication in her system. Her being off her medication could have caused her to hallucinate and become depressed all over again, which is common for people that had her condition. So, in the elevator, she would have believed someone was following her which would explain her bizarre behavior. During her last few moments, nobody knows what could have been going through her mind. What could have let her to jump inside that small open door at the top of the water tank?

Although her case was ruled as an “accidental drowning,” in June 2013 (Mikkelson 1). the strange details of Lam’s case have fueled an extensive amount of questions. An many to disagree on what may have happened to the girl found in the water tank. The mystery behind the death of Elisa Lam remains hounding us till this day, the public is not happy with the official ruling of lams’ death, the LAPD is considering re-open the case.
