8ch.net | A recent #QAnon post referenced 2 documents discussing the CIA's use of journalists & media (see attachments below). These documents help to explain what/who may be behind some of the Main Stream Media (MSM) news stories and narratives. According to the documents, the CIA no longer keeps journalists on the payroll, however there doesn't appear to be any restrictions on former CIA employees from working as journalists or on journalists who voluntarilly cooperate with the CIA.
qanonposts.com | A recent "QANON" post had a link to a 1977 Hearing before the Senate Select Committiee on Intelligence regarding "PROJECT MKULTRA, THE CIA'S PROGRAM OF RESEARCH IN BEHAVIORAL MODIFICATION" specifically regarding "Behavior Control" and "Drug Testing" including "covert drug testing on unwitting citizens" to include the administration of LSD to unwitting subjects resulting in at least 1 Death, that being Dr. Olsen, who according to the CIA, "jumped out of a window" after being dosed with LSD without his knowledge.
A lawsuit by Dr. Olsen's sons, alleged that he was in fact murdered by the CIA after he discovered that his biological research was being used to torture and kill suspects in Norway and West Germany. The lawsuit was dismissed in part due to a previous settlement with the family although U.S. District Judge James Boasberg noted "the public record supports many of the allegations [in the family's suit], farfetched as they may sound". A 2011 book on this subject may be of further interest; A Terrible Mistake - The Murder of Frank Olsen.
Given the recent revelations of the politicization abuses by the DOJ/FBI it makes sense to review the efforts to which our government has gone to manipulate us for clues to what other abuses may be going on today that we have yet to uncover.
