MkDelta is CIA Mind control program that was approved in 1953 by CIA director Allen Dulles. The "Mk" in the name refers to Mind Kontrol. The "Delta" could be a reference to "Delta Force."
MKDELTA involved the use of biochemicals in clandestine operations, outside US territory.
According to the Church Committee report (Book I, Chapter XVII):
A special procedure, designated MKDELTA, was established to govern the use of MKULTRA materials abroad. Such materials were used on a number of occasions. Because MKULTRA records were destroyed, it is impossible to reconstruct the operational use of MKULTRA materials by the CIA overseas; it has been determined that the use of these materials abroad began in 1953, and possibly as early as 1950.
Drugs were used primarily as an aid to interrogations, but MKULTRA/MKDELTA materials were also used for harassment, discrediting, or disabling purposes.
