Stephen Kinzer - Poisoner in Chief: Sidney Gottlieb and the CIA Search for Mind Control

Upcoming Event
Saturday, September 21, 2019 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

The MK-ULTRA mind control project may sound like a paranoid fantasy, but it was a top-secret program run by the CIA from 1953 to 1973. Headed by Sidney Gottlieb, the project experimented with LSD and other drugs and concocted an arsenal of deadly pills—some specifically earmarked for Castro and other world leaders. Kinzer, an award-winning foreign correspondent and author of best-selling histories and political biographies including The True Flag and The Brothers, draws on new documentary research and original interviews to reveal for the first time the full, shocking story of one of the most powerful men of the Cold War era.
