Cathleen Ann O’Brien (born December 4, 1957, Muskegon, Michigan) is an American who said slaves could take all the drugs they wanted, except marijuana. Why? Because marijuana usage made it impossible to mind control them. It doesn’t allow for the compartmentalization of the mind to take place.
Cathleen Ann O’Brien claims she is a casualty of a mind control government project named Project Monarch, which she said was part of the CIA’s Project MKULTRA for behavioral engineering of humans (mind control). O’Brien made these assertions in Trance Formation of America (1995) and Access Denied: For Reasons of National Security (2004) which she co-authored with her husband Mark Phillips.
The memories that O’Brien has proclaimed she possesses were retrieved through the use of hypnosis. The specific program which she claimed was the reason for her dissociative identity disorder, Project Monarch, is not mentioned in reviews of MKULTRA, its alleged parent program.
Most MKULTRA records were deliberately destroyed in 1973 by order of then CIA Director Richard Helms, it has been difficult, if not impossible, for investigators to gain a complete understanding of the more than 150 individually funded research sub-projects sponsored by MKULTRA and related CIA programs. In 1977, Richard Helms was suspended by the US Congress for lies about the US government’s anti-government activities abroad and illegal surveillance domestically.
