Only a circumstantial case can be made for mind control but here are two brief facts  of real concern for everyone

1.  No current law or rule is in effect today to protect the public from national security experiments.

Past military and CIA experiments with toxic chemicals and for behavior modification were headline news in the 1970s. Congressional hearings uncovered illegal and extensive government programs including the CIA's now infamous MKULTRA mind control experiments. As a result, a series of presidential executive orders were implemented.

President Reagan's 1981 executive order, E.O. 12333, is the only current law governing classified experiments by intelligence agencies. Adopted by 17 federal agencies, the current regulations on experiments are called "The Common Rule". The rules cover both classified and unclassified experiments and include the cornerstone of human experimentation law, informed consent of the research subject. But experts agree the regulations lack any mechanisms for how classified research can be reviewed and conducted with informed consent.

The current regulations include CFR Part 46 section 46.101(i) which allows for a waiver of any or all of the CFR regulations and for a statute or executive order to override the notification and publication requirements. The relevant section states, "Unless otherwise required by law, Department or Agency heads may waive the applicability of some or all of the provisions of this policy to specific research activities or classes of research activities otherwise covered by this policy."  For further information see:

2.  Supersecret CIA mind control research continues.

One of the most influential U.S. scientists, Dr. Edwin Land, known for his highly successful but classified work on satellite cameras also conducted 1960s and 1970s CIA mind control research. Dr. Land was a presidential science advisor who served on many national security related boards and committees.

The CIA's infamous mind control programs and experiments were revealed in 1970s congressional hearings. Classified mind control research took place in over eighty institutions, such as UCLA, MIT, Stanford and Harvard. A 1979 Washington Post article reported that classified mind control research continued under the direction of Dr. Land. Book Disputes CIA Chief on Mind-Control Efforts: Work went on Into 1970s, Author Says, January 29, 1979, Washington Post.  The following two paragraphs are the relevant excerpts from this article.

"Despite assurances last year from Central Intelligence Director Stansfield Turner that the CIA's mind-control program was phased out over a decade ago, the intelligence agency has come up with new documents indicating that the work went on into the 1970s, according to a new book. John Marks, the author of the book, said the CIA mind-control researchers did apparently drop their much publicized MK-ULTRA drug-testing program. But they replaced it, according to Marks, with another supersecret behavioral-control project under the agency's Office of Research and Development."

"The ORD program used a cover organization set up in the 1960s outside Boston headed by Dr. Edwin Land, the founder of Polaroid, who acted as a "figurehead," said Marks in his book. The project investigated such research as genetic engineering, development of new strains of bacteria, and mind control. The book identifies the Massachusetts proprietary organization headed by Land as the Scientific Engineering Institute. The CIA-funded institute was originally set up as a radar and technical research company in the 1950s and shifted over to mind-control experiments in the 1960s with the exception of a few scattered programs. According to Marks, however, the ORD program was a full-scale one and just as secret as the earlier MK-ULTRA project. ..."

Clearly, the government position based on national security concerns is that mind control should remain one of the deepest secrets of the nation. This critical fact is not explored or mentioned in mainstream press. The public must sort through the mind control debate with incomplete information.  For further examples and explanation,  see:
