Conspiracy Theory

Sidney Gottlieb: CIA’s scapegoat and smokescreen



If you’ve followed conspiracy theories at all in your life, there’s a good chance you’ve come across the name Sidney Gottlieb. If it doesn’t ring a bell, perhaps you’ve heard of MKUltra. If that still isn’t jarring any memories, the latter was the CIA’s secret efforts to master mind control while the former was the man supposedly behind it all.

But if you get all of your information about this man and the operation he led from mainstream media, a book on the NY Times best-sellers list, or Wikipedia, you’re only getting a small part of the picture. Nevertheless, there’s a concerted effort to make the American public believe that it’s the whole picture… nothing else to see here. This is, of course, far from the truth. Everything we know about Gottlieb and Project: MKUltra is only known because they (the CIA and the U.S. government) allow us to have this information.

It’s in the rest of the story that we would get the real dangers in the program that likely had nothing to do with Gottlieb at all. In fact, the second component of the project is still redacted from documents and classified despite everything regarding the mind control element having been mostly released.

Think about that for a moment. A conspiracy by the Central Intelligence Agency to experiment on unwitting or unwilling people so they could master drug-induced mind control was deemed acceptable to release to the public, but whatever the 2nd component of their efforts were (or are) remains a mystery to this day. Whatever it is, we can assume it’s so heinous, so despicable, that even forced mind control experiments pale in comparison.

Gottlieb was more than a scapegoat. He was trotted out before the Senate to take as much blame as possible for the actions of the CIA. He was turned into a public spectacle and even today there are articles (and books) being written about him that present the narrative as if he’s the end-all to the story. But beyond being their scapegoat, he’s also the smokescreen. His story is outrageous, so much so that few are asking about the still-redacted aspects of the experiments.

The folks at Truthstream Media did a deep dive into this with their award-winning documentary, The Minds of Men. This shorter video about Gottlieb as a scapegoat is worth a watch as well.
