Many of these “throwaways” of society had been secretly subjected to CIA-mind control experiments. Dr. Gary Hackney, a psychologist who conducted behavior modification experiments into how much pain a subject could withstand at VA Hospital in Minnesota on the homeless veterans, soon recognized that these vets were not “crazy” they were having flashbacks to traumatic military experiences. They had been conditioned and brainwashed when they were 18 to 21 but in their 50s they tended to unravel. He coined the condition “Repressed Memory Syndrome” (RMS) which became a contentious lightening rod for the psychiatric establishment that had participated in CIA mind control experiments.
