    Oh shit. That's not what we had in mind.

    Somebody has to do something, and it's just incredibly pathetic that it has to be us.

       In 1950, the Army secretly used a Navy ship cruising just outside the Golden Gate to spray supposedly harmless bacteria over the entire city and its outskirts. Eleven people were sickened by the germs in San Francisco, and one of them died.

      -- From 1956 to 1961, the CIA, in a secret behavior modification program called MK-ULTRA, dispatched agents to test the effects of mind-altering drugs such as LSD and synthetic mescaline on unsuspecting people in San Francisco, Mill Valley and other cities across the country. Many of the victims hallucinated, many became sick and at least two deaths resulted from the experiments.

      -- And from 1944 to 1974, both the Defense Department and the Atomic Energy Commission conducted hundreds of secret experiments in San Francisco and around the country that exposed unsuspecting patients to dangerous doses of radiation, including injections of plutonium.

      These secret research projects were supposed to help the military and other federal agencies prepare defenses against biological warfare, nuclear terror and mass brainwashing.
      The CIA's MK-ULTRA program 40 years ago was presumably designed to learn how to defend against enemy use of drugs to brainwash American prisoners of war or citizens at home being held by terrorists -- as well as to develop effective methods of interrogating enemies.
