Fifty-nine years ago, a CIA bioweapons expert named Frank Olson attended a secret meeting in Deep Creek Lake, Maryland, where he was given a drink laced with an experimental hallucinogenic compound now known as LSD. Dr. Olson did not give his consent to be a test subject; the same was true of many others used as human guinea pigs in the agency’s MK-Ultra program.
On November 24, 1953, Dr. Olson announced that he wanted to resign from the Agency. During the Thanksgiving weekend, he traveled to New Yorkfor a psychiatric evaluation. In the early hours of November 28, Olson fell to his death from the window of a 13th-floor hotel room. The Agency described the incident as a suicide. The fact that Dr. Olson had been an involuntary test subject was concealed by the CIA until 1975.
On the anniversary of Dr. Olson’s death, his sons Eric and Nils filed a federal wrongful death lawsuit claiming that the scientist was murdered to conceal illegal interrogations that had been conducted by the agency using biological agents he had developed. The lawsuit claims that the CIA’s interrogations resulted in the deaths of detainees in Norway and Germany.
It is impossible to overestimate the institutionalized depravity of the people who rule us.
