CIA implanted electrodes in brains of unsuspecting soldiers, suit alleges


A group of military veterans are suing to get the CIA to come clean about allegedly implanting remote control devices in their brains.

It's well known that the CIA began testing substances like LSD on soldiers beginning in the 1950s but less is known about allegations that the agency implanted electrodes in subjects.

A 2009 lawsuit (.pdf) claimed that the CIA intended to design and test septal electrodes that would enable them to control human behavior. The lawsuit said that because the government never disclosed the risks, the subjects were not able to give informed consent.

If the alleged CIA implants were not implanted in the brains of U.S. Military personnel, is it any less unconscionable government contracted private researchers to implant behavioral control devices in unwitting civilians as "test subjects"; prisoners, hospital patients and nursing home residents? If government will do these things like this to Americans, as alleged in the lawsuit brought by Veterans, what else might government do to injure Citizens?
