"Ewen Cameron: The Memory Thief"
1957-1961, Canada: MKULTRA Experiments in Montreal
By Joseph Rauh, Jr. and James Turner, the lawyers who
litigated against the CIA in the 1980s.
Early in 1957, Dr. D. Ewen Cameron, Director of the
Allan Memorial Institute in Montreal, formally applied
for funding from the "Society for the Investigation of
Human Ecology," a CIA front at Corn-ell University
Medical School, New York City. Cameron described his
brainwashing experiments as follows:
"(i) The breaking down ongoing patterns of patient's
behavior by particularly intensive electroshocks
(ii) Intensive repetition (16 hours a day for 6-7
days) of prearranged verbal signal.
(iii) During this intensive repetition the patient is
kept in partial sensory isolation.
(iv) Repression of the driving period is carried out
by putting the patient, after the conclusion of the
period, into continuous sleep for 7-10 days."
Cameron also proposed testing "LSD and similar
agents" in "depat-terning" his patients. Sidney
Gottlieb and other CIA officials approved the
application and over four years, provided $60,000 for
Canada's Government Aided the CIA's Legal Defense
In the 1980s, the CIA and State Department
launched a public counterattack on the Canadian
government for questioning the propriety of CIA
activities. The CIA effectively converted the
Canadian government into an active and hostile
In press briefings, interviews and Court
pleadings, the CIA hammered away at one theme - Canada
funded Cameron too. Legally, this was irrelevant, but
politically, it was devastating. As one U.S. Attorney
said, "We're going to wrap the Canadian Government
financing of Cameron right around their necks."
This steady counterattack left the Canadian
government completely cowed, apparently a fairly easy
thing for the U.S. to accomplish. To turn off the
public heat for supporting our case, the Mulroney
government commissioned an "independent study" by a
former Tory M.P., John Cooper. The result was neither
independent nor a study, but a several hundred page
brief concluding Canada was blameless, and CIA
involvement was "a red herring."
The "Cooper Report" was compiled and written by
Canadian Justice Department lawyers, whose job was to
defend Canada against claims of liability based on its
involvement with Cameron. A more clear conflict of
interest is difficult to imagine. No Canadian Bar
disciplinary committee has investigated the lawyers
who did it.
The "Cooper Report" asserted that Cameron had
done nothing wrong. Without interviewing any of our
clients or reviewing their medical records, the report
announced there was probably little if any lasting
harm to the victims. The report reproduced the CIA's
principal defenses, now as the "independent"
conclusions of an official Canadian government
investigation. The "Cooper Report" was a complete
What once had appeared to be our strongest
potential ally, threatening even to take the U.S. to
the International Court of Justice at the Hague, now
sought to exonerate the CIA in every conceivable way
possible. The Canadian government did such a good job
for the CIA that the "Cooper Report" became the first
exhibit in the CIA's final effort to defeat our case
through a motion for summary judgment. In addition,
the same psychiatrists who the Canadian government had
retained to ratify the Cooper whitewash were the CIA's
expert witnesses. Canada completed the legwork that

Nuremberg Tribunal Member
Dr. Ewen Cameron was a member of the Nuremberg
tribunal (1945). He examined and diagnosed Rudolf
Hess, Hitler's devoted "deputy Fuhrer" responsible for
Nazi party matters, saying that he was insane, thus
helping to save Hess' life. In 1961, Cameron became
president of the World Psychiatric Association, which
was riddled with Nazi psychiatrists and apologists.
Cameron's mind control experiments violated the
Nuremberg Code for medical ethics.
The existence of MK ULTRA was first brought to light
by maverick government officer John Marks - on 20th
September 1977 the U.S. Senate investigated MK ULTRA
discovering that thousands of people had been the
unwitting victims of mind control experiments.
In 1977 the Senate investigated CIA activities. The
CIA denied any involvement in MK ULTRA activities.
CIA document referring to MK ULTRA - dated 10th May
Extract from the report:
Between 1955 and 1975 thousands of people were
unwittingly experimented upon by MK ULTRA and the U.S.
Military. Of these approximately 7000 enlisted
soldiers were used as human guinea pigs in experiments
involving a wide array of biological and chemical
warfare agents. About 3500 of these soldiers were
given mind-altering psycho chemicals - L.S.D.,PCP, BZ
and the like. These tests were carried out at the
Chemical Warfare Laboratories at Edgewood Arsenal
facility in Maryland.
On 3rd October 1995, President Clinton publicly
apologised to the thousands of people who became
unwitting victims of "Government Sponsored" radiation
experiments. The following was included in his
"Thousands of government-sponsored experiments did
take place at hospitals, universities, and military
bases around our nation. The goal was to understand
the effects of radiation exposure on the human body.
While most of the tests were ethical by any standards,
some were unethical, not only by today's standards,
but by the standards of the time in which they were
conducted. They failed both the test of our national
values and the test of humanity. In one experiment,
scientists injected plutonium into 18 patients without
their knowledge. In another, doctors exposed indigent
cancer patients to excessive doses of radiation, a
treatment from which it is virtually impossible that
they could ever benefit. The report also demonstrates
that these and other experiments were carried out on
precisely those citizens who count most on the
government for its help - the destitute and the
gravely ill. But the dispossessed were not alone.
Members of the military precisely those on whom we and
our government count most they were also test

Closer to home, Canadian human rights advocate Rod
Vienneau told Freedom that Heinz Lehmann, Ewen Cameron
and other prominent psychiatrists performed numerous
experiments on normal children held at various
orphanages in Quebec from the 1940s through the 1960s.

Cameron, received funding from the U.S. Central

study of the health effects of fluoride, which was the
key chemical component in atomic bomb production. One
of the most toxic chemicals known to man, fluoride, it
is found, causes marked adverse effects to the central
nervous system but much of the information is
squelched in the name of national security because of
fear that lawsuits would undermine full-scale
production of atomic bombs.

MKSEARCH, a program to develop a capability to
manipulate human behavior through the use of
(1965) Prisoners at the Holmesburg State Prison in
Philadelphia are subjected to dioxin, the highly toxic
chemical component of Agent Orange used in Vietnam.

produce AIDS-like retroviruses.

Biological Warfare Research is renamed the Fredrick
Cancer Research Facilities and placed under the
supervision of the National Cancer Institute (NCI) .
It is here that a special virus cancer program is

cancer-causing viruses. It is also here that retro
virologists isolate a virus to which no immunity
exists. It is later named HTLV (Human T-cell Leukemia

HTLV and VISNA, a fatal sheep virus, are very similar,
indicating a close taxonomic and evolutionary

Academy of Sciences (83:4007-4011), HIV and VISNA are
highly similar and share all structural elements,
except for a small segment which is nearly identical
to HTLV. This leads to speculation that HTLV and VISNA
may have been linked to produce a new retrovirus to
which no natural immunity exists.
(1986) A report to Congress reveals that the U.S.
Government's current generation of biological agents
includes: modified viruses, naturally occurring

their children was experimental.
(1994) With a technique called "gene tracking," Dr.
Garth Nicolson at the MD. Anderson Cancer Center in
Houston, TX discovers that many returning Desert Storm
veterans are infected with an altered strain of
