The Conscious Resistance

By Derrick Broze

Documents released to the American Civil Liberties Union detail how the CIA considered using a controversial psychotropic drug as a ‘truth serum’.

The American Civil Liberties Union has released documents from the Central Intelligence Agency’s Office of Medical Services detailing a secret history of CIA torture operations. The 90-page account was written by an unknown top CIA medical official and explains how CIA doctors were looking for a “truth serum” drug they could use on prisoners as part of a formerly classified project known as Project Medication. U.S. government lawyers have previously stated that the report was a draft and represented the impressions of one single officer not the opinion of the whole agency.

The ACLU reports:

The CIA studied records of old Soviet drug experiments as well as the CIA’s notorious and discredited MK-Ultra program, which involved human experimentation with LSD and other drugs on unwitting subjects. The CIA doctors involved in Project Medication wanted to use Versed, a psychoactive drug similar to some of those used in MK-Ultra, on prisoners.
