In his book, "Bluebird: Deliberate Creation of Multiple Personality by Psychiatrists," Colin A. Ross, M.D., past President of the ISSD,[1] FMSF member,[2] and author of several books[3] and over 100 scientific papers, offers answers to what many have asserted for years. The mind control[4] experiments involved more than the commonly known testing of LSD-25 on unsuspecting adult citizens. Dr. Ross provides a comprehensive overview of Psychiatry's misdeeds as complicit partners in the government's search for the "Manchurian Candidate" and the creation of Multiple Personality Disorder (now known as Dissociative Identity Disorder)[5] by consolidating information from existing literature such as, "Search for the Manchurian Candidate," John Marks, 1979, "Journey into Madness," Thomas Gordon, 1989, "The Control of Candy Jones," Donald Bain, 1976, "I Swear by Apollo," Don Gillmor, 1987, and "Programming and Metaprogramming in the Human Biocomputer," John C. Lilly, M.D., 1967, interspersed with FOIA released documentation and in person interviews.

Setting the stage, Dr. Ross presents an historical overview by introducing the reader to the medical community's views of the time, wherein they often and blatantly ignored the Hippocratic oath, "primum non nocere." He then commences to describe the extent that the medical community ignored this oath as is evidenced in activities such as Project PAPERCLIP, the Tuskeegee Syphilis Study, and the Radiation Experiments, stating "Subjects of LSD experiments included children as young as five years old, and brain electrodes were implanted in children as young as eleven years of age. Four of the CIA's MKULTRA[6] Subprojects were on children, a fact which has not been publicly documented before." (p 21). To support this statement he supplies several citations to include; three children treated with LSD, accidental ingestion of LSD by children, depth electrodes implanted in the amygdala of a 14-year old girl, a superior temporal convolution given to an 11-year old boy, the destruction of the amygdala in 98 "mentally defective" patients, of whom 86 were children, a research project using EEG telemetry on a 10-year old girl, a sensory isolation experiment involving an hebephrenic-catatonic girl, the experimentation on an unknown number of children conducted at the Rome State School in Rome, New York, St. John's Orphan Asylum, and the House of the Good Shepherd, run by the Utica Community Chest in Utica, New York, and LSD and psilocybin experiments on an unknown number of children under the care of Lauretta Bender.

Throughout the book, Dr. Ross discusses iatrogenic pathways to the creation of Dissociative Identity Disorder involving hypnosis, isolation, shock therapy (via ECT or insulin induced shock) electrode implants, producing concussions from a distance using mechanical blast waves, electromagnetic field experimentation, the "Total Encounter Capsule," and many drugs, including alcohol, amphetamines, atropine, heparin, scopolamine, seco barbitol, Compazine (prochlorperazine), Dexadrine (dextroamphetamine), Dilantin (phenytoin), Inderal (propranolol), LSD-25 (lysergic acid diethylamide), BZ (3-quinuclidinyl benzilate), Amyl Nitrate, Ditran, Ritalin, Thorazine, Valium, and hundreds of lesser known drugs, used singularly or in combination. Dr. Ross examines Case histories of Linda MacDonald, Mary Ray, Palle Hardrup, Patricia Hearst, Candy Jones, Sirhan Sirhan, and Mark David Chapman, stating that Sirhan Sirhan and Mark David Chapman correspond to the "factitious" pathway; in other words, they were self-created Manchurian Candidate assassins who applied mind control methods through self-hypnotic and self-training procedures. Palle Hardrup's, Candy Jones', and Patty Hearst's multiplicity, he explains, was "iatrogenic," caused by systematic brainwashing techniques applied by others.

To further explicate the iatrogenic creation of Dissociative Identity Disorder, Dr. Ross also notes five cases involving Dissociative Identity Disorder wherein he served as an expert witness. "There was abundant evidence of treatment techniques and boundary violations which mimicked the mind control techniques used by destructive cults."(p 257) He further proceeds to remark, "The patients' families of origin were defined as Satanic and all doubts about the reality of multiple personality or the false memories of Satanic ritual abuse were defined as symptoms of cult programming or resistance to treatment." He comments, "The treatment violated the methods and principles I recommend in my book, 'Satanic Ritual Abuse: Principles of Treatment,'[5] and it did so to an extreme degree." He also notes cases wherein he believes facetious multiple personality was presented and the complaining patients were "now suing for damages, blaming the therapist for their own deceptive behavior."(p 261) The goal, he claims is to acquaint the reader with the various pathways to Dissociative Identity Disorder, concluding the majority of Dissociatives he has treated in his practice involve casual links to all pathways discussed. He ends this section with a call for another round of declassification, hypothesizing, "My call, I believe, would be answered by William Donovan, if I read him accurately."

Dr. Ross takes us on a tour of the dimly lit corridors of well-known institutions, including, but not limited to; the American Psychological Association, Bio-Research, Inc., Butler Hospital and Health Center, Children's International Summer Villages, Inc., Columbia University, Cornell University, Eli Lilly, Educational Testing Service, Emory University, George Washington University, Harvard University, H. J. Rand Foundation, John Hopkins University, J. P. Morgan and Col., Inc., Leler University of Georgia, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, McGill University, Montana State College, National Institute of Health, National Research Council, New Jersey-Neuropsychiatric Institute, Pennsylvania State University, Princeton University, Public Health Service, Queen's College, Rutgers University, Stanford University, St. Francis Memorial Hospital, Texas Christian University, University of Delaware, University of Denver, University of Florida, University of Helsinki, University of Houston, University of Illinois, University of Indiana, University of London, University of Oklahoma, University of Maryland, University of Minnesota, University of Niijmegen, University of Richmond, University of Texas, University of Wisconsin, Worcester Foundation for Experimental Biology, National Philosophical Society, and Ohio State University.

Enter the puppet masters—"Mind control doctors" Louis Jolyon West, Dr. Martin Orne, and Dr. Ewen Cameron, each receive a chapter, as does Johns Hopkins University. Dr. Ross dedicates a complete section to Dr. George Holben Estabrooks and his work with Dr. P.L. Harriman in the creation of multiple personality, pointing out there is no conclusive evidence that any of "his experimental multiple personality subjects were used in actual operations."(p 161) Based upon voluminous material stored at Colgate College, records show that Estabrooks corresponded with several OSS personnel and may have started mind control experiments as early as 1942. Estabrooks also corresponded with Dr. Wilder Penfield, who is most well known for mapping the primary somatosensory cortex of patients during neurosurgery in 1937. Penfield was a McGill neurosurgeon and co-author with Dr. Maitland Baldwin of MKULTRA Subproject 62 and MKSEARCH.

Dr. Ross highlights the FMSF-CIA connection, indicating that several doctors, including Dr. Louis Jolyn West, Dr. Martin Orne, Dr. Michael Persinger, Dr. Harold Lief, Dr. Margaret Thaler Singer, and Dr. John Kihlstrom, who were either involved in the CIA mind control projects or coauthored papers with "mind control doctors," also serve on the FMSF Advisory Board,[6] while missing the fact that several well-known trauma researchers were also involved in the CIA mind control projects in the mid to late 60s. The FMSF, Dr. Ross observes, "is the only organization in the world which has attacked the reality of multiple personality in an organized, systematic fashion." He further suggests, "If any of the FMSF Scientific and Professional Advisory Board Members are attacking multiple personality disorder for disinformation purposes, this is itself a violation of professional and medical ethics."(p 115) To support his hypothesis he points out that Orne and West "were lifelong students of dissociation, amnesia, coercive persuasion, hypnosis, and other topics at the core of BLUEBIRD and ARTICHOKE and both received funding from numerous military sources and the CIA."(p 124) as well as noting, "Dr. Peter Freyd, husband of FMSF Executive Director Pamela Freyd, wrote: 'Since we all want to be open about any money we might have received from military-related sources, let me confess. I, too must go on record. Starting in 1988, I've been getting a lot of money from the U.S. Office of Naval Research.'"[7] Dr. Ross declares, "Dr. Freyd is to be commended for coming forward."(p 154) while pointing out that Lief—editor of West's book, "Hypnosis in Medical Practice" and coauthor of Tulane brain electrode specialist and CIA contractor, Dr. Robert Heath—was also Freyd's personal treating psychiatrist.

In a final caveat emptor, Dr. Ross challenges FMSF board members stating, "The dissociative disorders, false memories and therapist-created multiple personality are the focus of the FMSF campaign" and "If clinical multiple personality is buried and forgotten, then the Manchurian Candidate Programs will be safe from public scrutiny. I would like to know whether Dr. McHugh himself, or other members of his Department of Psychiatry at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, are CIA or military mind control contractors."(p 141-142) McHugh is the Henry Phipps Professor of Psychiatry and Director of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences of the John Hopkins School of Medicine, a position he has held since 1975. The casual connection Dr. Ross makes is with regard to several "mind control doctors" also affiliated with Johns Hopkins University, whose funding came from the Scottish Rite Research Committee. McHugh, he points out, is an FMSF Advisory Board Member who has vehemently attacked the premise of multiple personality, stating it is "'a major folly, a folly astonishing in its wild presumptions' that has 'misaligned psychotherapy,' and been 'a disaster for American psychiatry.' Writers on multiple personality, [McHugh] says, have 'deranged the discourse of psychiatry and cultivated a Sherlock Holmes fantasy among many psychotherapists'"(p 141)

In his concluding chapter, Dr. Ross states, "a debate about whether the Manchurian Candidates are 'real' is meaningless. What matters is whether the Manchurian Candidate can escape detection and, if caught, whether the classified information he or she holds can be hidden from interrogators." pointing out that "In the interest of national security, it is important that the CIA and military intelligence agencies have mind control programs in place. This is true, for one reason, because mind control methods are being used by leaders of destructive cults, dictators and terrorists. There is nothing wrong with the intelligence agencies seeking the assistance of physicians in such programs. The problem is in the conflict between the National Security Act and the Hippocratic Oath."(p 266) Dr. Ross ends his book with a final appeal to the Media and Medical Community's derisive commentaries of his work, "It is time for a cease and desist order. William Donovan, I think, would agree with me that a tactical error has been made, and would appreciate the need to control blowback. Let the psychiatrists take the heat. They are the ones who deserve it, not the descendants of William Donovan."(p 267)
