MkDelta Project

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.
