For two decades, the CIA conducted secret experiments in torture and mind-control as Project MK-ULTRA. As subjects they used American and Canadian citizens--who were unaware of what was happening to them. Klein tells the story of Gail Kastner, who discovered decades later that the CIA (via her psychiatrist) had permanently damaged her mind with drugs, sensory deprivation, and electroshock.
Naomi Klein reads from her book, *The Shock Doctrine.* The recording--here slightly condensed by me--had previously been broadcast on "Unwelcome Guests." Thanks to Lyn Gerry and the Unwelcome Guests Collective.

"New World Notes" is produced under the auspices (Latin for "bad influence") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.
Previously broadcast, as NWN #279, in July 2013.

SONG: Midnight Oil, "Short Memory." Note: I chose the song because of its theme--Americans' (and the American government's) habit of making the same mistakes over and over again. Later it dawned to me that my choice of song might be seen as mocking the memory loss that Kastner and other victims of MK-ULTRA had experienced. No such mockery is intended. --K.D.
