What is MKULTRA?

Wikipedia explains MKULTRA as the following:

Project MKUltra—sometimes referred to as the CIA’s mind control program—was the code name given to an illegal program of experiments on human subjects, designed and undertaken by the United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). Experiments on humans were intended to identify and develop drugs, alcohol, stick and poke tattoos, and procedures to be used in interrogations and torture, in order to weaken the individual to force confessions through mind control. Organized through the Scientific Intelligence Division of the CIA, the project coordinated with the Special Operations Division of the U.S. Army’s Chemical Corps. The program began in the early 1950s, was officially sanctioned in 1953, was reduced in scope in 1964, further curtailed in 1967 and officially halted in 1973.  The program engaged in many illegal activities;  in particular it used unwitting U.S. and Canadian citizens as its test subjects, which led to controversy regarding its legitimacy.  MKUltra used numerous methodologies to manipulate people’s mental states and alter brain functions, including the surreptitious administration of drugs (especially LSD) and other chemicals, hypnosis, sensory deprivation, isolation, verbal and sexual abuse, as well as various forms of torture.

The scope of Project MKUltra was broad, with research undertaken at 80 institutions, including 44 colleges and universities, as well as hospitals, prisons, and pharmaceutical companies. The CIA operated through these institutions using front organizations, although sometimes top officials at these institutions were aware of the CIA’s involvement. As the US Supreme Court later noted, MKULTRA was:

concerned with “the research and development of chemical, biological, and radiological materials capable of employment in clandestine operations to control human behavior.” The program consisted of some 149 subprojects which the Agency contracted out to various universities, research foundations, and similar institutions. At least 80 institutions and 185 private researchers participated. Because the Agency funded MKUltra indirectly, many of the participating individuals were unaware that they were dealing with the Agency.

Project MKUltra was first brought to public attention in 1975 by the Church Committee of the U.S. Congress, and a Gerald Ford commission to investigate CIA activities within the United States. Investigative efforts were hampered by the fact that CIA Director Richard Helms ordered all MKUltra files destroyed in 1973; the Church Committee and Rockefeller Commission investigations relied on the sworn testimony of direct participants and on the relatively small number of documents that survived Helms’ destruction order.

In 1977, a Freedom of Information Act request uncovered a cache of 20,000 documents relating to project MKUltra, which led to Senate hearings later that same year.  In July 2001, some surviving information regarding MKUltra was declassified. *

The Black Vault and the 2004 FOIA Document Release

The Black Vault filed a FOIA request for all documents pertaining to MKULTRA and related projects back in the late 1990s. Despite the reports that MKULTRA documents were destroyed in 1973, the CIA did locate some files and I was told that these documents were being reviewed.

For YEARS I waited, and was never contacted back by the CIA. In time, the CIA DID release the documents on four CD-ROMs.  I received these documents back in 2004, and was one of the first (if not the first) to have uploaded the ENTIRE collection of MKULTRA records to the internet.

Below, you will find the links to the data on the CD-ROMS as originally received.

Originally, the CIA directories contained .tif images of the documents (not my favorite format) and two other files. The .txt file is a poor excuse for a OCR (optical character recognition) of the document, and a .dat file which contains a one line description, as found in the index below.

This has been an extremely popular dataset since I first added it, and in March of 2017 — expanded the original CIA release with a newer, updated, searchable PDF format consisting of their original .TIF file releases.

 MKULTRA CIA Document Index [85 Pages, 6.2MB] – Start here! This will list documents archived on the CD-ROMs below. You can just start browsing the CD’s below by clicking on one and browsing around. I also included a .ZIP file of the CD-ROM as they were obtained from the CIA.  In addition, I have created an archived of .PDF files, all searchable, which are now

In March of 2017, The Black Vault converted the entire above collection into text-searchable .pdf files. I created a .ZIP file of the entire directory structure, and the .PDF files for download.  Please note: The original .tif, .dat and .txt files were removed in this .zip since they are now unneeded.  (Note: This does NOT include the new 2018 releases below.)

The Missing Pages

In March of 2016, Oscar Diggs, a visitor to The Black Vault, found the MKULTRA collection I put online. He then  painstakingly reviewed the index of files, and the released records for comparison, to see if they matched.  He compiled a list of all the missing documents, or portions thereof, and sent me the below index of all that he found that was missing.

Here was his list from the above index that were not put onto the original CD-ROMs:

21787, 21788, 21789, 21790, 21791, 21792, 21793, 21794, 21795, 21796, 21797, 21798, 21799, 21800, 21801, 21802, 21803, 21805, 21806, 21808, 21809, 21811, 21812, 21813, 21814, 21816, 21817, 21818, 21821, 21823, 21824, 21825, 21826, 21827, 21828, 21829, 21830, 21831, 21832, 21833, 21834, 21835, 21836, 21837, 21838, 21839, 21840, 21841, 21842, 21843, 21844, 21845, 21846, 21849, 21850, 21851, 21852, 21853, 21854, 21855, 21856, 21857, 21858, 21860, 21861, 21862, 21863, 21864, 21865, 21866, 21867, 21868, 21869, 21870, 21871, 21872, 21873, 21875, 21876, 21877, 21878, 21879, 21880, 21881, 21882, 21884, 21885, 21886, 21887, 21888, 21889, 21890, 21891, 21892, 21893, 21894, 21895, 21896, 21897, 21898, 21899, 21900, 21901, 21902, 21903, 21904, 21905, 21906, 21907, 21908, 21909, 21910, 21911, 21912, 21913, 21914, 21915, 21916, 21917, 21918, 21919, 21920, 21921, 21922, 21923, 21924, 21925, 21926, 21928, 21929, 21930, 21931, 21932, 21933, 21934, 21935, 21936, 21937, 21938, 21939, 21940, 21941, 21942, 21943, 21944, 21945, 21946, 21947, 21948, 21951, 21952, 21953, 21955, 21957, 21958, 21959, 21960, 21961, 21962, 21963, 21964, 21965, 21966, 21967, 21968, 21969, 21971, 21972, 21973, 21974, 21975, 21976, 21977, 21978, 21979, 21980, 21981, 21982, 21992, 21993, 21994, 21995, 21996, 21999, 22000, 22011, 22013, 22014, 22016, 22017, 22018, 22020, 22021, 22022, 22024, 22026, 22027, 22028, 22029, 22030, 22031, 22032, 22033, 22037, 22038, 22040, 22041, 22042, 22043, 22044, 22046, 22047, 22048, 22050, 22051, 22052, 22053, 22054, 22055, 22056, 22057, 22058, 22059, 22060, 22061, 22062, 22063, 22064, 22065, 22066, 22068, 140389, 140390, 140391, 140392, 140393, 140394, 140395, 140396, 140397, 140398, 140399, 140400, 140401, 140402, 140403, 140404, 146325, 146329, 149501, 149502, 149503, 149504, 149505, 149506, 149507, 149508, 149509, 149510, 149511, 149512, 149513, 149514, 149515, 149516, 149517, 149518, 149519, 149520, 149521, 149522, 149523, 149524, 149525, 149526, 149527, 149528, 149529, 149530, 149531, 149532, 149534, 149535, 149536, 149537, 149538, 149539, 149540, 149541, 149542, 149543, 149544, 149545, 149546, 149547, 149548, 149549, 149550, 149551, 149552, 149553, 151511, 151512, 151513, 151514, 179067, 184497, 263377, and maybe 179066.

308 (or 309) documents in all.

Documents that are missing pages: 

17373, 17440, 17456, 17457, 17460, 17466, 17468, 17472, 17479, 27417, 40176, 149456

12 documents in all.

I filed a FOIA request to the CIA, for these specific records, since they did not include it in their initial release to me. Sadly, after a long wait, they informed me that there would be no way to find them, and only supplied me a “new copy” of their MKULTRA collection. I ran a scan to compare file to file, and it was exactly the same release that I originally received (which is available for download above).

I then began a “FOIA Battle” with the CIA about this entire issue. According to their own letter, they stated the index (again, available for download above) was supposed to ALL be on the CD-ROMs.  Obviously, they were not, and I double and then later TRIPLE checked the work of Oscar Diggs to ensure accuracy. There was no error, and I stood by the documents were missing.

After sending a 97 page fax proving that the records were not on the original disks (which is what they required me to do) they changed their story once they realized I proved what I said. They then claimed they made a “mistake,” and they should have been better at clarifying, but the documents regarding “behavioral modification” were NOT supposed to be on the CD-ROMs, and I only paid for the “MKULTRA” material. After wasting hours upon hours of time stretching over months, I then officially requested a “fee waiver” to see if I could get the fees waived.  I felt I put up a good argument for one, but I was ultimately denied.

So in August of 2018, I started a GOFUNDME campaign to help raise the $425.80 that the CIA required to release the 4,358 additional pages. Again, I was told I needed to pay for them, because they did not fit the scope of my original request in the late 1990s.  After extensive media coverage about my “FOIA Battle” that was covered by Vice News / Motherboard, Newsweek and many other outlets, the funds were raised in a matter of days. I immediately wrote the check, and waited for my documents.

Fast forward to the end of October 2018. I received a box from the CIA that I knew, was what I had been waiting for. I opened the box, and on the top of the stack (keep in mind, about 2 1/2 months had passed since I sent payment) was my original/uncashed check, made payable to the United States Treasury Department. I knew instantly, there was an issue.

I read their letter (available below). In short, the CIA changed their story yet again. First, even though they said I already got 100% of the MKULTRA material, it was now proven untrue. I now had a stack of pages that they finally agreed, SHOULD HAVE been on the CD-ROMs, and therefore, they sent them for free (remember that fee waiver denial? Someone should have caught the fact I was right about asking for the records.) According to their letter, the contents of the box they sent me totaled 791 pages (which actual totaled 800 exactly, but close enough).  Now the question was, if the 791 (actual: 797) pages were part of the 4,358 I paid for, then what about the remaining 3,567 (actual: 3,555) pages? Well, that got even more bizarre.  Now the number of remaining pages was only 2,316 pages. That means at least 1,245 pages of MKULTRA / Mind Control / Behavioral Modification documents just vanished from their original quote to me. What I can’t deduce from the CIA’s letter (available below) is if these 797 pages released were a part of that original quote, so the number of missing pages could be closer to 2,000!

That said, the more frustrating thing, is that I have to “start over.”  It took 2 1/2 months for the CIA to not cash my check, and then send me a letter stating that what I had already paid for months prior, would need to be purchased again, and therefore, I needed to start over by writing a new check, sending it via postal mail, and just wait… again.

Mistakes happen, but they had an exact page count in their original demand for payment. They were adamant about having to pay for 100% of the responsive pages, and that I was not to get ANY for free. They even processed my fee waiver, and denied it outright after “considering it.”  Why wasn’t any of this found during the process of that fee waiver request?   After all of that work, all of that time wasted,in the end, I still did not get all of the documents, and the CIA changed their story, yet again.

I will let you all decide what that all means, but for now, I have scanned in the 797 pages of material, and they are all available below, which I have indexed and organized by the order they were received.

Studies in Intelligence, March 2010 [76 Pages, 3.28MB] – The Center for the Study of Intelligence (CSI) was founded in 1974 in response to Director of Central Intelligence James Schlesinger’s desire to create within CIA an organization that could “think through the functions of intelligence and bring the best intellects available to bear on intelligence problems.” The center, comprising professional historians and experienced practitioners, attempts to document lessons learned from past activities, to explore the needs and expectations of intelligence consumers, and to stimulate serious debate about current and future intelligence challenges. To carry out this mission, CSI publishes Studies in Intelligence, as well as numerous books and monographs addressing historical, operational, doctrinal and theoretical aspects of the intelligence profession. It also administers the CIA Museum and maintains the Agency’s Historical Intelligence Collection of published literature on intelligence.
