The UFO Trail: John Marks and 'The Search for the Manchurian Candidate'

Jack Brewer at UFO Trail discusses the relatioship between UFOs, Manchurian Candidates and the government-industrial-complex:
The UFO Trail: John Marks and 'The Search for the Manchurian Candidate': Those familiar with The UFO Trail and Orlando Paranormal Examiner are well aware of my interest in the intelligence community. Part of that interest was inspired by the extents I consistently find people within ufology to be largely uninformed of the histories of intelligence agencies. Such people are subsequently ill equipped to identify potential correlations between the intelligence community and ufology.

More than one well educated contact in the UFO community has told me that the vast majority of what they knew about Project MKULTRA they learned as a result of our interactions. Other contacts, well versed in matters of alleged aliens and their methods of operation, have often demonstrated comparatively very little knowledge of the intelligence community. Obviously, an accurate and comprehensive history of American intelligence matters is not included in either typical US college curriculum or popular UFO lore. It is for such reasons that I offer a bit of history on how the public gained access to what is known of Central Intelligence Agency ventures into behavior modification projects such as MKULTRA.

  1. Thanks very much for your interest, Regan. It is appreciated.

    There is such a vast amount of information available (MKULTRA Collection, Church Committee Reports, transcripts of Senate hearings on mind control and radiation testing of involuntary research subjects, etc.) that I have come to reasonably accept that it would take a great deal of resources to ever give it all the attention it may deserve. Nonetheless, I find the subject matter interesting and potentially relevant from many perspectives, so I chip away at it. Thanks again for your interest and encouragement.
