1968–1973: MK-OFTEN mind control experiments developed by the DOD and CIA

MK-OFTEN experiments were conducted at Holmesburg Prison and other state and federal prisons. These experiments sought to find “a compound that could simulate a heart attack or a stroke.” (Manchurian Candidate, Chapter 12) Alternately, they were designed to produce “irrational or irresponsible behavior” “create temporary psychotic states in subjects.” Secret documents uncovered during 1977 congressional investigations revealed that E.G. Scott, an Army law division chief, questioned the aim of these experiments whose purposes was “disturbing a person’s psyche” and “inducing violent behavior.” (H.P.
