VIDEO: Doc - Project MK-ULTRA

Here's another program I curated for Network Awesome's "Salute to Drugs", a 1979 ABC News report on the CIA's Project MK-ULTRA, which involved dosing unwitting subjects with LSD and other powerful drugs in the hopes of discovering a truth drug and, ultimately, a mind control agent. Unethical, criminal and just plain creepy? You bet! But as Timothy Leary points out, without the agency's tests, it is somewhat doubtful that the counter-cultural movement of the 1960's, as we know it, would have occurred.

Trouble viewing the video? Watch it on Network Awesome.
