CIA Requests Its Own Documents From Author

WALTERVILLE, Ore. — In a bizarre about-face, the secretive Central

Intelligence Agency has requested documents from an investigative

journalist, even though the writer had earlier obtained them from the

CIA itself under the Freedom of Information Act.

The strange request was made last week to author H.P. Albarelli Jr.,

whose recently published book A Terrible Mistake: The Murder of Frank

Olson and the CIA’s Secret Cold War Experiments, details a myriad of

CIA drug experiments and exposes a large number of previously

anonymous physicians and business officials who contracted with the

agency. The experiments resulted in the deaths of a number of people

and sent hundreds more seeking medical help.

“The caller, an agency official, who identified himself by a name I

was quite familiar with from past requests,” explained Albarelli,

“asked if I would be so kind as to send by fax two documents my book

referenced in its narrative and footnotes. I suppose I should have

been bowled over by the request, but I wasn’t. It happened once


“The crazy thing,” added Albarelli, “is that all of the requested

documents came from my FOI requests to the agency in the early 1990s.”

The documents requested from Albarelli centered on two subjects. The

first top-secret CIA document details a meeting between an official of

the Sandoz Chemical Company and an undercover CIA operator. The

document reveals a close relationship between the firm and the agency,

and provides stunning details about a mysterious 1951 outbreak of

“insanity” in a small French town, Pont St. Esprit. In a covert

experiment, the village was surreptitiously administered the powerful

hallucinogen LSD in an attempt to see if there was a viable method of

waging war without killing people or destroying property. A related

document appears to reveal that famed LSD inventor, Albert Hoffmann,

maintained a close relationship with the CIA.

The second document requested reveals intelligence links between one

of the criminals who murdered Frank Olson and the assassination of

JFK, including a possible working relationship with suspected assassin

Lee Harvey Oswald. About seven years ago, after an Internet article by

Albarelli, an agency official requested that Albarelli send the CIA a

copy of a top-secret report from the CIA’s Robert Lashbrook to Dr.

Sidney Gottlieb, director of its Chemical Division. The document

concerned a Pentagon and CIA cover-up of the 1953 death of a patient

at the New York Psychiatric Institute. That patient, Harold Blauer,

was killed by an injection of drugs administered under a covert CIA


A Terrible Mistake is published by TrineDay, an Oregon-based company

that specializes in books that are shunned by mainstream publishers

due to their controversial nature.

H.P. Albarelli Jr. has written a number of groundbreaking newspaper,

magazine and Internet articles, including several on the Olson case,

as well as topics such as anthrax, Cuba, child abuse and intelligence

matters. His novel The Heap was published in 2005. More information on
