The Narut Revelations: Mind-Controlled Manchurian Candidates

In late 1961, CIA promoter of MK-Ultra Richard Helms handed over to William Harvey the agency’s assassination programs, which operated under the title ZR-RIFLE. The Technical Services Staff (TSS) was involved in assassination and the recruitment of assassination squads. It also had interests involved in an expanded program of research into hypnosis and mind control.

Starting in the early 1970s, covert action programs involving assassination attempts on foreign leaders and covert attempts to subvert foreign governments were reported for the first time. The high profile domestic assassinations were glossed over, but nevertheless the Senate Church Committee was launched in 1975.

The Church Committee’s final report was published in April 1976 in six books. Also published were seven volumes of Church Committee hearings in the Senate. An interim report titled “Alleged Assassination Plots Involving Foreign Leaders” was also an eyeopener for the public. Additionally, the committee produced seven case studies on covert operations, but only one on Chile was released, titled “Covert Action in Chile: 1963-1973.” The other six were kept secret at the CIA’s request.

The committee revealed elements of the MK-Ultra program that engaged in numerous illegal activities, including the use of U.S. and Canadian citizens as its unwitting test subjects. MK-Ultra used extensive methods to manipulate people’s mental states and alter brain function. The scope of Project MK-Ultra was broad with research undertaken at 80 institutions, including colleges and universities, hospitals, prisons and pharmaceutical companies. The CIA operated through these institutions using front organizations.

In March 1953, Allen Dulles, the Director of Central Intelligence from 1953 to 1961, entrusted Dr. Stanley Gottlieb with MK-Ultra, considered one of America’s most secret and sensitive Cold War programs. Dulles authorized TSS and Dr. Gottlieb’s chemical staff to begin work on multiple projects for “research and development of chemical, biological and radiological materials capable of employment in clandestine operations to control human behavior.”

MK-Ultra eventually encompassed 149 subprojects.

Investigative efforts were hampered by the fact that Helms, who served as the CIA’s director from 1973 to 1976, ordered all MK-Ultra files to be destroyed in 1973. The Church Committee’s investigations had to rely on sworn testimony of direct participants and on a relatively small number of documents that survived Helms’ destruction order.

Among the more shocking revelations was Subproject 54 and the Navy’s top secret “Perfect Concussion” program, which was supposed to use sub-aural frequency blasts to erase memory. The CIA claimed the program was never carried out, which was a common deflection.

Some historians assert that one goal of MK-Ultra and related CIA projects was to create a “Manchurian Candidate” subject through mind control techniques.

Reinforcement for the mind-control assassin aspect came by accident after the Church Committee was through. Lieutenant Commander Thomas Narut, a U.S. Navy psychologist stationed at the U.S. Regional Medical Center in Naples, Italy, in 1979, admitted to Navy programs that created mind-controlled assassins. Narut made this apparent gaffe at the NATO conference for psychologists on “Dimensions of Stress and Anxiety” in Oslo, Norway.

Narut said there was no shortage of enlisted men who could be studied and the psych profiles and background was available on all subjects. Afterward, in a small group that included Peter Watson of the London Sunday Times, Narut was even more candid.

He talked about his work with “combat readiness units” whose participants included commandos and undercover operatives at U.S. embassies worldwide, including “hit men and assassins.” He revealed that the subjects are desensitized while by being strapped into a chair with their heads immobilized and eyelids clamped open, while they were forced to view violent true-life splatter flicks until finally the men were totally callous toward scenes of horrible carnage. Narut stated that successful programming of assassins took only a few weeks.

Among the films shown were a brutal African circumcision, and a man having his fingers sawed off in a sawmill. Another technique of desensitization that was employed was propaganda aimed to make the customs and culture of another country appear as evil and less than human. Of course, in the modern version of this, such societal conditioning is pre-loaded and goes on around the clock via staged deceptions and Hollyweird demonization movies. One wonders if the method Narut was describing is really even necessary anymore.

Candidates for assassination training were taken from submarine crews and paratroops.  Another source of mind-control fodder for the assassination programs was soldiers who had been awarded for bravery. Narut admitted that convicted murderers from military prisons were excellent candidates. It is not a stretch to conclude that criminals from the general prison population could be mind controlled and utilize.

Narut said that the men selected were programmed at the Navy neuropsychiatric lab in San Diego, California, and also at the Naples, Italy, medical installation. Although Narut admitted that he did not have a high enough clearance to know where all of the programmed assassins were sent, he did know that some had been stationed in the Naples embassy. This would have provided easy deployment throughout Europe during a period known as Gladio operations.

After Narut’s admissions were printed in the Sunday Times, the Pentagon issued an official denial that the Navy had ever conducted “psychological training” or the training of assassins.

Although admitting that Narut was on Naval staff in Naples, they reported that they had been unable to locate him in order to obtain a response to the allegations. A short time later, Narut gave a press conference in which he stated that the information he had offered “had only been theoretical” and said that these were the kind of programs that the Navy might do in the future.

Par for the course came the standard gaslighting, as the U.S. Naval headquarters in London reported that Narut’s rash statements had been made due to his “personal problems.”

However, Dr. Irwin Sarason, one of the organizers of the Oslo conference, admitted that a few years earlier he had been solicited by the Navy to participate in a project similar to the one Narut described.

Daniel Sheehan of the Christie Institute public advocacy group also verifies this kind of research:

“We have talked to half-a-dozen individuals who have told a startlingly similar story about how, at a very young age, usually between 20 and 25, they were contacted, usually within the context of military training, and told: ‘Look, we’ve got a special deal for you. You’re going to come into the service under the normal designation of being an infantryman, but you’re going to leave the service after a while and you’re going to have special training, and you’re going to be brought into a special program.’ They’re sent to special places where they are trained by mercenaries and then they’re told: ‘You’re going to be called upon from time to time to do some things for us.'”

This is precisely how Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh described his experience.

In recent years, the program appeared to snare more victims or targets from the general population. In 1996, there were more MK-Ultra hearings where a series of individuals gave testimony. In general, they described trauma and mind-bending or personality splitting.

Another man apparently programmed as a mind controlled assassin was Col. William Bishop (1923-1990), who made the following statement to researcher Gary Shaw. Bishop died of heart failure a few days after authorizing the release of a tape recording that included the above statement. So far as I can determine, this recording has been scrubbed from the internet. Bishop’s name comes up similar to E. Howard Hunt as a bench warmer in the JFK assassination. He is also linked to an intel assassination bureau called Operation 40.

“That was how, after the Korean War, I got involved with CIA. I have been subjected to every known type of drug. The medical doctors connected with the agency found that certain drugs work quite well in conjunction with hypnosis — hypnotic power of suggestion — with some subjects. It did with me. I speak with absolute certainty and knowledge and experience that this is not only possible, but did and is taking place today.

“I never understood why they selected me personally. There were any number of psychological or emotional factors involved in people’s selection. Antisocial behavior patterns, paranoid or the rudiments of paranoia, and so on. But when they are successful with this programming — or, for lack of a better term, indoctrination — they could take John Doe and get this man to kill George and Jane Smith. Then there is a mental block put on this mission in his mind. He remembers nothing about it.

“Perhaps a month or a year later — rarely over a year, at least back in those days — the phone rings. A code word will be read to him in a voice that John Doe recognizes. That will trigger the action. John Doe will commit the assassination, return home, and remember absolutely nothing of it. It is totally a blank space.”

10 Comments on The Narut Revelations: Mind-Controlled Manchurian Candidates

  1. MK Ultra likely did not manifest itself in just these micro operations, but in some horrible macro butcheries that occurred during these years.

    In 1948, American and Korean troops murdered some 60,000 Korean fishermen and farmers on the island of Cheju.

    In 1950, CIA-controlled Korean execution squads killed at least 200,000 civilians in the so-called Bodo League massacres.

    Also in 1950, American troops massacred 35,000 North Korean civilians near the town of Sinchon.

    There were many other bloody massacres committed by American troops at this time, these were just some of the worst. I don’t think these incidents could have happened without some pretty thorough psychological ground work by the controllers.

    The Indonesian killings of 1965-66, in which some 500,000-700,000 people were killed- the CIA and it’s adjunct the Rand Corporation were neck-deep in this particular lake of blood.

  2. Well, this is an interesting thread that could form the outline of a book, or take us days to barely even scratch the surface of in this comment section. Big thanks to RW for the interesting topic and extensive supporting information!

    Although I am not sure that I can add too much that would be considered “new” to this topic, I might have a few resources that could be interesting to friends on WW; however, first I would like to begin with a few points within the thread itself, which I will mention in no particular order, and then interweave the resources that I mentioned.

    As follows:

    1. “We have talked to half-a-dozen individuals who have told a startlingly similar story about how, at a very young age, usually between 20 and 25, they were contacted, usually within the context of military training, and told: ‘Look, we’ve got a special deal for you. You’re going to come into the service under the normal designation of being an infantryman, but you’re going to leave the service after a while and you’re going to have special training, and you’re going to be brought into a special program.’ They’re sent to special places where they are trained by mercenaries and then they’re told: ‘You’re going to be called upon from time to time to do some things for us.’”

    Although Mr. McVeigh is rightly mentioned following this paragraph, I would (humbly) suggest that this exact pattern would have been utilized for the directions of Messrs. Oswald and Ferrie, with the former being a far more transparent example (Signals Corp., then bounced around, and then everything which follows after being discharged from the Marine Corp.).

    Mr. Ferrie becomes a little harder to comprehend since much of what is known about him seems to only represent a fraction of his total life or whereabouts during particular periods in his existence.

    Two texts that I think could be supportive are:

    https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/10255.Dr_Mary_s_Monkey

    and

    https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/6686737-me-lee

    (Please note: While Ms. Judyth Vary Baker has written a text on Mr. Ferrie, I do not believe the work adds very much new information about the man other than personal experiences. Background information is still light in this book from my own perspective.)

    These two texts seem to form bookends regarding both gentlemen, their higher (personal) intelligence and research into biological weaponry by various intelligence agencies at the time.

    2. “One wonders if the method Narut was describing is really even necessary anymore.”

    Yes, one should consider it given the interest by DARPA in electronic gaming. Lest we forget that Call of Duty was a very dominant video game for many years and has only been replaced by any number of titles that have intelligence and behavioral markers which may consume the player in a darker realm of thought patterns (hey folks, it ain’t Pac Man).

    https://www.cnet.com/news/darpa-wants-you-to-play-video-games/

    Also we often discuss the life of the “cutout” known as Mr. Adam Lanza on WW. Now if we go by the standard narrative, then we are told the young man was heavily influenced by very graphic video games. Even if this point is incorrect and the individual is not what has been portrayed to be in the mainstream history and media circles, then we could question why this whole idea has been associated with the young man. Perhaps it is to modify acceptance and indicate the reality of the games themselves, no matter who the player happens to be.

    We might also delve into the early association that Ms. Nancy Lanza may or may not have had with video game development and DARPA; although as time moves forward, this point is becoming much harder to research and make a clear connection to.

    And to think there has never been another serious committee since that time. One has to wonder why?

    By contrast, I would opine that the Iran Contra hearings were actually a “soft sell (or even “cell” — joking)” to the American public of what the intelligence apparatus of the time had grown to be capable of and with a follow-up of pardons that basically stated:

    “See we can do whatever we wish and there is ZERO that you can do about it. No jail time, no heavy punishments, nothing! If we want to funnel the government’s funding to Switzerland for future operations, then so be it! You will go back to your hole of an existence and shut your mouth!”

    Or something along these lines. Plus if you issue the pardons, then you get the building named after you! Bonus!

    Ever notice how Langley is not named for Donovan, Dulles, Helms or anyone else who was a “career officer” in the Agency, but instead is named after a guy who supposedly was Director for a very short / limited period of time. Funny!

    A great thread that I appreciated reading.

    • >the Iran Contra hearings

      Public congressional hearings have never been anything but the legislative version of a ‘modified limited hangout’ — the highly publicized (the more publicity the less likely any useful info will emerge) HSCA hearings did little/nothing to clarify the important questions around the JFK autopsy, especially the inconsistencies re the head wound(s), i.e. what was seen/described by a number of doctors at Parkland vs what was ‘seen’ at Bethesda, and what ultimately made it into the official findings — the later ARRB (Doug Horne et al) accomplished much more on this.

  3. “…He revealed that the subjects are desensitized while by being strapped into a chair with their heads immobilized and eyelids clamped open, while they were forced to view violent true-life splatter flicks…”

    Sounds like “Clockwork Orange”…. So did Kubrick get this from the CIA or did the CIA get it from Kubrick?

    • Hello shh,

      To my understanding, Kubrick often received work from intelligence agencies, especially in his early career. Although he might have had some ideas that inspired various intelligence agencies and / or officials, I think it was their decision to contact him first.

      Best,
