MKULTRA and the assassination

Testimony of Ambassador Lewellyn Thompson

http://www.jfk-assas...ol5/page569.php

Mr. Slawson.

Mr. Ambassador, I have a name of an American citizen, Mr. William Edgerton Morehouse, Jr. 1, who, according to the records of the Department of State, was hospitalized in a hospital in Moscow in the fall of 1959.

According to records furnished us by the Russian Government, and according to the personal diary kept by Lee Harvey Oswald, he, too, was hospitalized in the latter part of October, and commented--Oswald commented in his diary--that in his ward with him was what he described as an elderly American. We are trying to locate that American. We think that possibly this Mr. Morehouse was that person. I wonder if you had ever heard of Mr. Morehouse before, or know who he might be?

Ambassador Thompson. I have no recollection of having heard of this man before.

Mr. Slawson.

Do you have any recollection of any other American that might fit this description?

Ambassador THOMPSON. No; I do recall that there have been American tourists who have been in the hospital in Moscow. But I don't recall at that particular date whether there were any.

Mr. Slawson.

Mr. Ambassador, can you comment on how Americans were ordinarily given medical treatment in the Botkinskaya Hospital in Moscow, which was the hospital in which Oswald was treated, to the best of your knowledge?

Ambassador THOMPSON. The Botkinskaya Hospital has a section which is reserved for the members of the diplomatic corps, and in case of prominent Americans, particularly if the illness were serious, they were often treated there.

Mr. Slawson.

You say the Americans normally were treated in a special ward in that hospital, or a special section of it?

Ambassador THOMPSON. Yes; it was a completely separate building, I believe.

Mr. Slawson.

Was this the invariable method of treatment, or would there be a reasonable chance that an American might have gone into a normal Soviet ward which would have treated his type of illness?

Ambassador THOMPSON. I would think that the ward which was reserved for the diplomatic corps would probably only have been used for important visitors, but it is quite a large hospital, with a large number of separate buildings. It is quite possible for Americans to have been in one or the other. And obviously, if there were an infectious disease, they would be separated, and not in the regular section.

Mr. Slawson.

If an ordinary American tourist or businessman in Moscow were to receive an injury in, say, an automobile accident or some other normal method, would he normally be put into the same ward as Embassy people were placed, or would he receive treatment right along with normal Soviet citizens?

Ambassador THOMPSON. I think that there is an emergency hospital type where he probably would normally be taken. rather than Botkinskaya. I cannot be sure of this. But we had an American doctor in the Embassy who would normally be called in on cases of this kind. and if he felt the case required it he would probably apply to have him taken to Botkinskaya.

Mr. Slawson.

Do you recollect who this doctor was in the fall of 1959?

Ambassador THOMPSON. I believe at that time it was an Air Force officer. It sometimes rotated among the services. But I am almost certain it was an Air Force officer. I could get the name, but I don't recall it at the moment. I just don't recall the name.

Senator COOPER. I suggest that the Secretary can supply the name for the Commission.

Mr. Slawson.

Mr. Ambassador, do you think it would be usual of the Soviet Government to permit someone in Oswald's circumstances, that is a would-be defector from his own government, to be treated in the same ward as other Americans, or particularly as Americans who might come under the category of this important person or Embassy official ward you were speaking of?

Ambassador THOMPSON. I would think it is probably somewhat unusual. This doctor could give you expert testimony on this, because he has been involved in almost all cases.

Mr. Dulles.

Do you happen to know whether that doctor is in the United States at the present time?

Ambassador THOMPSON. He was in Texas the last I heard. I draw a blank on his name at the moment, although I know him quite well.

Mr. Slawson.

I think with the lead you have given us, we shouldn't have any difficulty in finding his name. I have no other questions.

END

1. Robert: This area of Oswald's stay at Botkinskaya Hospital has been the topic of considerable interest mainly due to the fact Oswald's time spent at the hospital seemed unduly long, which I tend to agree was for an adenoids operation. Leading to the speculation that MKULTRA activities took place there. The problem is, on the surface to subscribe to an MKULTRA event at Botkinskaya Hospital, seems to pre-suppose the Soviets were the creators of a programmed Oswald. Not only does that theorem not have any proof, but if such were the case, would the advocates in the intelligence community of the 1960's eager to blame the KGB or Castro for the assassination, have left it hanging there, unresolved? Maybe in the 1960's but other than Cuban's alleged to have been in Minsk, the whole issue has a distinct feel of never being properly dealt with.

My belief if anything happened regarding Oswald being programmed, in my view, it would have had to have been an American intelligence plant at Botkinskaya Hospital trained in hypnosis or something related to surgery dealing with mind-control, also being there, maintaining a deep cover.

On somewhat the same subject, there is a minor record extemporaneous of government documents regarding a William E Morehouse Jr.

The 1996 case of mass murderer Martin Bryant is a blueprint for how these mind benders work their magic.

Martin Bryant was monitored, directed, and, in all likelihood, programmed by Tavistock networks in Tasmania, from at least the time that one of Tavistock's senior representatives in Australia, the now 88-year-old Dr. Eric Cunningham Dax, first examined Bryant in 1983-84, and set the parameters for all his future "treatment." Dax was for decades an associate of Tavistock's longtime leader and World Federation of Mental Health chairman, Dr. John Rawlings Rees. Beginning with his collaboration with Rees in the late 1930s, Dax, by his own account, had specialised in "brainwashing."

To cover its tracks, Tavistock invariably circulates what might be called the "Lee Harvey Oswald theory of mass murder" — that each such incident is the result of a "lone nut," who one day just "went crazy." Such was the "finding" of Melbourne-based British forensic psychiatrist Dr. Paul Mullen, in his evaluation of Bryant for Bryant's defense attorney, in which Mullen concluded, "It would be more satisfactory if one could point to some simple and direct cause of the tragedy at Port Arthur"; unfortunately, Mullen said, one could not. But, notwithstanding that Bryant was a "lone nut," Mullen confidently predicted to the Herald Sun of Feb. 4, 1997, that there would be "more such massacres because of strong evidence of a copycat element," a warning echoed by other Tavistock assets in Australia and abroad. Curiously, Mullen himself reportedly participated in the investigation of two mass slaughters in New Zealand, before coming to Australia.

Nice work Terry, the funny thing about William Morehouse Jr., is when he was hospitalized in Russia, he was visited by Leonard Bernstein, and not someone happened to be named Leonard Bernstein, but the conductor of orchestras, himself. Is that not slightly strange?

Robert, that is really something. Leonard Bernstein may have been the reason Oswald got into the Soviet Union at all...

Helsinki vice consul and CIA agent "William Costille" crucial October 9 memo to Maury and Timm with the subject line of “REDCAP, Costille-Pawnee/5-Golub Contact”. Costille reports that during early September, “(t)wo Americans were in the Soviet Consulate at the time and were applying for Soviet visas through Golub…Golub phoned Costille to state that he would give them their visas as soon as they made advance Intourist reservations. When they did this, Golub immediately gave them the visas.”

See 10/9/59 memo from Costille to Maury (Chief SR) and Timm (Chief, WE), 10/9/59, http://www.maryferrell.org/mffweb/archive/viewer/showDoc.do?docId=27337&relPageId=3

This memo followed months of interactions between Costille and Golub. A Ukranian diplomat, Golub made it clear that he enjoyed American company, and Costille was gently trying to encourage Golub to defect.

Oswald immediately made good use of Costille’s tip about coming through Helsinki. Oswald arrived in Helsinki late Saturday night on October 10 and submitted his visa request on Tuesday the 13th.

See Peter Wronski, http://www.russianbooks.org/oswald/journey.htm

After traveling to Europe by freighter, the normally tight-fisted Marine distinguished himself by staying in extremely expensive hotels and booking a private guided tour of Moscow.

See John Armstrong, Harvey and Lee (Quasar, Ltd., Arlington, Texas, 2003), p. 255

I should add that much of the memo discusses a quick lunch requested by Golub with Costille on the morning of the 13th, and the two men managed to swing it that same day. This memo’s subject line is REDWOOD/REDSKIN/REDCAP/LCIMPROVE, which indicates that the CIA felt the memo was relevant to three different programs as well as what I call the LCIMPROVE technique. Golub expresses how grateful he was to Costille for the two tickets he gave him to see Leonard Bernstein on the 4th. Leonard Bernstein may be the reason that Oswald got into the Soviet Union at all.

See 11/27/59 memo by William Costille, REDWOOD/REDSKIN/REDCAP/LCIMPROVE re Gregory Golub, 11/27/59, HSCA Segregated CIA Collection (microfilm - reel 8: Golitsyn - Hernandez)/ NARA Record Number: 104-10172-10291

...One last thing. I have a couple sources indicating the vice consul at the American embassy in Helsinki referred to in the documents as "William Costille" was actually a CIA officer named Robert Fulton. Does anyone else know this man, or how to reach Jerry Ennis, who has apparently studied Fulton? Jerry is active with MFF, maybe he is active here as well.

Bill, I have read with a keen interest your work on the Oswald trip to the Soviet Union, and there are a couple of things you should know. But first, I want to mention I have some personal material re Bernstein, I will add later. First, even though deservedly, the Warren Commission as in investigation was more or less a joke, at least in my opinion.

That does not mean, the DOD, FBI, Secret Service, INS, State Department and CIA files contained in the Warren Commission documents, exclusive of the Report were also a joke, to the contrary; I have been reading each one of these 1,555 documents and they are fascinating!

The reason I mention it is that there is a Warren Commission document, where at least, one or both of the Morehouse family were interviewed....

I will post more of that later.

In the meantime if you should ever get your hands on it, it is not a government document someone named

Zuleta interviewed the widow of Alex Zieger, at considerable length.....Although I have only read parts of it, you get the impression, or at least I did, that there is definitely another Oswald in Russia. I don't quite know how to explain it but if you've seen some of the Oswald in Russia photo's, you can tell something is not quite right. The Zuleta Interview

of the remaining members of the Zieger family is essential to discovering what may be, not only the whole story of the remaining mysteries of Oswald in Russia, but also

getting to the bottom of the two Oswald's mystery as well.

Keep up the good work.

Robert

I finally found an article by Laurence Stern that I had been seeking. Elsewhere on this forum a member, who is a noted author, made the claim that he knew Larry Stern at WaPost in the early 1960s. He said that he suspected that the CIA was behind his death. Regardless, Larry Sterns articles are fascinating to read. He was the lead writer on the Bobby Baker case, and wrote countless articles on that topic. What surprised me somewhat was how long this series of articles extended: Well into 1965. I have recently made a ton of copies and plan on posting bits that might be new on that and other topics that Stern wrote about. I wanted to start with this article, however.

BEHIND PSYCHOLOGICAL ASSESSMENTS' DOOR A CIA OPERATION, JUNE 21, 1974. by Laurence Stern.

THE WASHINGTON POST

At first glance the interior of the room on the fourth floor of the Vann Ness Shopping Center office building looks like the many dozens of private consulting firms scattered in their smartly appointed quarters throughout Washington.

The neat lettering on the door says: Psychological Assessments Associates Inc." Admission is gained by pushing a buzzer and waiting for someone to unlock the door from the inside.

But Walter P. Pasternak, the operating head of Psychological Assessments, is not anxious to see unscheduled visitors. "We have nothing to say," he told a visiting reporter in terse and angry tones, moving immediately toward the door.

The reason for Pasternak's reticence is that Psychological Assessments is unlike most other businesses. From the time of its incorporation in 1965, its principal source of funding has been the Central Intelligence Agency, which is what Pasternak does not want to talk about.

"We could never have existed without this support," acknowledges the firm's retiring president, John W. Gittinger, who founded it with two other former CIA psychologists after they left full-time employment the agency.

Gittinger is less reluctant to talk because he is disassociating himself from Psychological Assessments on July 1 and is proud of the work it has done as well as his long years of service to the CIA, to which he is still personally under contract as a consultant.

The company won an obscure and perhaps unjustified mention in the case of former White House special counsel Charles Colson, who pleaded guilty in June 6 to an obstruction of justice charge growing out of his role in the Daniel Ellsberg break-in case.

Colson had asked the office of the Watergate special prosecutor to provide "documents or records concerning the psychological profile of Dr. Ellsberg compiled by Psychological Assessments Inc. for the CIA."

Gittinger heatedly denies any association with the Ellsberg profile or, indeed any involvement with the White House on Watergate or national security matters. "It's an absolute, positive lie." said the 57-year old psychologist of Colson's implication of the company's involvement in the 1971 "plumbers'" break-in of Dr. Lewis Fielding's office in Los Angeles. Fielding was Ellsberg's psychiatrist.

A CIA spokesman said yesterday the agency will not comment on whether it has financial or operational relationships with Psychological Assessments. The CIA has a policy of saying nothing about its links with US.S. domestic concerns.

Gittinger acknowledges that the company behind the unobtrusive door at 4301 Connecticut Ave., NW has conducted training programs for CIA operatives abroad and performed psychological evaluations for overseas employees of American firms with foreign-based offices of subsidiaries.

The rubric of "psychological assessments" covers a variety of services which both the firm and Gittinger, in his private counseling role, have provided the CIA.

It covers the study of brainwashing techniques by foreign intelligence organizations that was carried out by a New York-based predecessor organization to PAA called the Human Ecology Fund.

It also provides training to CIA employees for assessing the credibility of foreign intelligence informants. "It's a question of trying to understand whether someone is lying or telling the truth when he comes through the door and says he wants to give you information," Gittinger explained.

The beginning of the psychological assessment program, Gittinger related goes back to the early 1950's when former CIA Director Allen W. Dulles sought neurosurgical treatment of his son, Allen M., who was seriously injured in Korea, from a New York Neurologist, Dr. Harold G. Wolfe.

Dulles became interested in Wolfe's research into Chinese indoctrination of captured American pilots during e Korean war. CIA began financing the research work through first the Society for the Investigation of Human Ecology, with which Wolfe was associated, and then the Human Ecology Fund, according to Gittinger.

Both operated a private research organizations with headquarters in New York and with branches overseas.

"This whole project was Allen Dulles' baby, " Gittinger explained. "It grew out of his son's injury in Korea."

Because of the growing controversy over CIA financing of private organizations in the mid-1960's, the Human Ecology Fund was abandoned. The controversy was touched off by disclosure that the agency was funding activities of US based student, labor, journalistic and cultural organizations.

The Human Ecology Fund was spared public mention during the furor over clandestine CIA financing. IT folded quietly after Gittinger moved to Washington to start Psychological Assessments Associates Inc.

Current programs by PAA, said Gittinger, are strongly pointed toward Soviet, Chinese and Arab cultural training. He declined to discuss the specific nature of the programs or whether PAA carried out such programs for foreign intelligence of security organizations.

The commercial side of PAA's activities--screening foreign employees of American firms-- has shrunk in recent years, making the company almost wholly dependent on its CIA contracts.

He emphasized that the company has never taken a government or private contract which involved the "assessment" of an American citizen. "We do absolutely no domestic advising," Gittinger said. "We have never been asked to evaluate an American."

Gittinger and the two other ex-CIA founder os PAA, Robert E. Goodnow and Samuel B. Lyerly, have ended their active associations with the company. It was understood that the new operating group is seeking to divest itself of the CIA financial sponsorship.

"I am very proud of what I have don for the agency over a log period of time in the assessments field," said Gittinger. "There is nothing I am ashamed of, nothing I have to hide."

Declassified CIA document (image below):

"Miss [redacted] was instructed (having previously expressed a fear of firearms in any fashion) that she would use every method at her disposal to awaken Miss [redacted] (now in a deep hypnotic sleep). Failing this, she would pick up a pistol nearby and fire it at Miss [redacted].

"She was instructed that her rage would be so great that she would not hesitate to "kill" [ redacted] for failing to awaken. Miss [redacted] carried out these suggestions to the letter including firing the (unloaded) gun at [redacted] and then proceeded to fall into a deep sleep. Both were awakened and expressed complete amnesia for the entire sequence.
