Houston stressed that deliberate exposure of the MK/ULTRA program by essentially offering it to the press would serve to placate the brewing feeding frenzy over so-called mind control projects, and would divert any investigative attempts into the multi-faceted Artichoke Project."Multi-faceted." Multi-faceted, he said. As in crazy-ass mind-fuck Manchurian candidate kinda shit, tossed in with a leeward bend toward drug-addled, mind-fucked assassination robots, while orthogonally conjoined racism and homophobia wrap it all up in one glowing, multi-faceted bow.
Whew, Abarelli whips out another dose of old-time/new-time CIA torture programs. Or program. It's not at all clear whether Operation Artichoke ever really stopped. One of Artichoke's facets was, and still is, the operating interrogation paradigm of the CIA.
Now, I can finally say without dispute just how ridiculous Spencer Ackerman looks when he writes CIA sponsored drivel in a putative "independent" news outlet. I've been wanting to bust Ackerman on that piece of shit article for a long time.
