Remembering Frank Olson, MKULTRA victim and "suicidee"

(Image: President Ford and Frank Olson's widow)

The recent news item about the activist lawyer "falling" to his death, along with the disgusting paeans to recently-deceased President Ford, brought to mind the story of Frank Olson. The Olson saga is a miniature primer of parapolitics, bringing together the nastiest of the dark players -- Cheney, Rumsfeld, Colby, and of course GHW Bush and clan -- and the blackest of CIA projects, Paperclip, MKULTRA, and ARTICHOKE.

There's a lot of material about this online, but this site does a good job of condensing the story. See the links on the page for further material.
