MKULTRA/MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE
An interesting book about the experiments of the CIA to hypnotise people, mainly by hallucinatory drugs, including psychiatry is John Marks’ The Search for the Manchurian Candidate: The CIA and Mind Control (1979): [url]http://www.wanttoknow.info/mk/search-manchurian-candidate.pdf[/url]
The way I was tortured is very similar to the description of the psychological games played in the Soviet Union to make political prisoners confess to crimes (they wanted me to confess I got a psychiatric disorder?):
“[I]According to the general consensus, the Soviets started a new prisoner off by putting him in solitary confinement. A rotating corps of guards watched him constantly, humiliating and demeaning him at every opportunity and making it clear he was totally cut off from all outside support. The guards ordered him to stand for long periods, let him sit, told him exactly the position he could take to lie down, and woke him if he moved in the slightest while sleeping. They banned all outside stimuli—books, conversation, or news of the world.
After four to six weeks of this mind-deadening routine, the prisoner usually found the stress unbearable and broke down[/I]“.
The CIA injected “public enemies” with hallucinatory drugs to induce a psychosis, because:
“[I]“It’s an old technique,” says an MKULTRA veteran. “You neutralize someone by having their constituency doubt them”[/I]”.
For example: “[I]One leftist professor in a Latin American university who had opposed the CIA says that he was working alone in his office one day in 1974 when a strange woman entered and jabbed his wrist with a pin stuck in a small round object. Almost immediately, he become irrational, broke glasses, and threw water in colleagues’ faces. He says his students spotted an ambulance waiting for him out front. They spirited him out the back door and took him home, where he tripped (or had psychotic episodes) for more than a week. He calls the experience a mix of “heaven and hell,” and he shudders at the thought that he might have spent the time in a hospital “with nurses and straitjackets.” Although he eventually returned to his post at the university, he states that it took him several years to recover the credibility he lost the day he “went crazy at the office.” If the CIA was involved, it had neutralized a foe[/I]”.
There’s also some information about the psychiatrist Dr. Donald Ewen Cameron that tortured his victims so terribly he created human plants:
“[I]Cameron's passion lay in the more "objective" forms of therapy, with which he could more easily and swiftly bring about improvements in patients than with the notoriously slow Freudian methods. An impatient man, he dreamed of finding a cure for schizophrenia. No one could tell him he was not on the right track. Cameron's supporter at the Rockefeller Foundation, Robert Morrison, recorded in his private papers that he found the psychiatrist tense and ill-at-ease, and Morrison ventured that this may account for "his lack of interest and effectiveness in psychotherapy and failure to establish warm personal relations with faculty members, both of which were mentioned repeatedly when I visited Montreal." Another Rockefeller observer noted that Cameron "appears to suffer from deep insecurity and has a need for power which he nourishes by maintaining an extraordinary aloofness from his associates."
When Lauren G.'s husband delivered her to Cameron, the psychiatrist told him she would receive some electroshock, a standard treatment at the time. Besides that, states her husband, "Cameron was not very communicative, but I didn't think she was getting anything out of the ordinary." The husband had no way of knowing that Cameron would use an unproved experimental technique on his wife—much less that the psychiatrist intended to "depattern" her. Nor did he realize that the CIA was supporting this work with about $19,000 a year in secret funds.[2]
Cameron defined "depatterning" as breaking up existing patterns of behavior, both the normal and the schizophrenic, by means of particularly intensive electroshocks, usually combined with prolonged, drug-induced sleep. Here was a psychiatrist willing—indeed, eager—to wipe the human mind totally clean. Back in 1951, ARTICHOKE's Morse Allen had likened the process to "creation of a vegetable." Cameron justified this tabula rasa approach because he had a theory of "differential amnesia," for which he provided no statistical evidence when he published it. He postulated that after he produced "complete amnesia" in a subject, the person would eventually recover memory of his normal but not his schizophrenic behavior. Thus, Cameron claimed he could generate "differential amnesia." Creating such a state in which a man who knew too much could be made to forget had long been a prime objective of the ARTICHOKE and MKULTRA programs.[/I]”

COINTELPRO
COINTELPRO was a program of the FBI that was started officially in 1956. In 1971 the Citizens Committee to Investigate the FBI made secret information on COINTELPRO public. The government´s reaction was to tell us they stopped COINTELPRO and continued it under a different name: [url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/COINTELPRO[/url]
Attorney Brian Glick wrote a book about CONTELPROs history and present day activities in War at Home (1988?): [url]https://ia802703.us.archive.org/35/items/War_At_Home/War_At_Home.pdf[/url]
Glick summarised the four main methods used during COINTELPRO as:
[I]1. Infiltration: Agents and informers did not merely spy on political activists. Their main purpose was to discredit and disrupt. Their very presence served to undermine trust and scare off potential supporters. The FBI and police exploited this fear to smear genuine activists as agents.
2. Psychological Warfare From the Outside: The FBI and police used myriad other "dirty tricks" to undermine progressive movements. They planted false media stories and published bogus leaflets and other publications in the name of targeted groups. They forged correspondence, sent anonymous letters, and made anonymous telephone calls. They spread misinformation about meetings and events, set up pseudo movement groups run by government agents, and manipulated or strong-armed parents, employers, landlords, school officials and others to cause trouble for activists.
3. Harassment Through the Legal System: The FBI and police abused the legal system to harass dissidents and make them appear to be criminals. [B]Officers of the law gave perjured testimony and presented fabricated evidence as a pretext for false arrests and wrongful imprisonment. They discriminatorily enforced tax laws and other government regulations and used conspicuous surveillance, "investigative" interviews, and grand jury subpoenas in an effort to intimidate activists and silence their supporters.[/B]
4. Extralegal Force and Violence: [B]The FBI and police threatened, instigated, and themselves conducted break-ins, vandalism, assaults, and beatings. The object was to frighten dissidents and disrupt their movements. In the case of radical Black and Puerto Rican activists (and later Native Americans), these attacks—including political assassinations—were so extensive, vicious, and calculated that they can accurately be termed a form of official "terrorism.[/B][/I]"
Glick is speaking about Targeted Groups (instead of Individuals). On December 4, 1981 Executive Order 12333 effectively legalised the government terrorism that was done in the COINTELPRO program (and since 9/11 they’ve implemented new laws that go even further).
Glick mentions several Targeted Groups that were infiltrated and harassed by the American (secret) police since 1971: 1) Committee in Solidarity with the People of El Salvador (CISPES), 2) Churches and organizations opposed to U.S. policy in Central America, 3) Chicano and Puerto Rican movements, 4) supporters of Palestinian self-determination, 5) Capital District Coalition Against Apartheid and Racism (CDCAAR), 6) New York City Black activists, 7) supporters of Jesse Jackson, 8) American Indian Movement (AIM), 9) The Women's, Gay, and Lesbian Movements, 10) The Labor Movement, 11) Livermore Action Group and 12) Vietnam Veterans Against the War (WAW).
