Revealed: CIA Experimented on Hundreds of Orphans, Torturing Them to Reveal Psychopathic Traits

Revealed_ CIA Experimented on Hundreds of Orphans, Torturing Them to Reveal Psychopathic Traits

According to a new documentary out of Denmark, which interviewed former victims, the Central Intelligence Agency secretly carried out experiments on 311 orphaned children. The experiments were meant to reveal psychopathic traits and map out the link between schizophrenia and heredity. According to the report, the children were tortured in clear violation of the Nuremberg Code of 1947 that introduced ethical restrictions for experiments on humans.

Hundreds of Danish orphans were unknowingly used in experiments backed by the CIA, according to Danish Radio, reporting on a new documentary called “The Search for Myself.”

According to the report, the experiments began in the early 1960s and spanned the course of two decades. They were conducted to investigate the link between heredity and environment in the development of schizophrenia. However, the children were not told what research they were involved in. Not even after the experiments ended. It was also funded in part by a CIA front associated with the MK-Ultra program.

Eerily, the examinations took place in a basement at the Municipal Hospital in Copenhagen. The director and producer of the documentary, Per Wennick, was actually a victim of the CIA and subjected to these experiments as a child. In the documentary, he recalled being placed in a chair, getting electrodes put on his arms, legs, and chest around the heart and having to listen to loud, shrill noises, which attempted to incite a psychological response.

“It was very uncomfortable”, Wennick told Danish Radio. “And it’s not just my story, it’s the story of many children.” By his own admission, he was promised “something funny” before being taken to the hospital. “I think this is a violation of my rights as a citizen in this society. I find it so strange that some people should know more about me than I myself have been aware of.”


According to historian, PhD, and museum inspector at the Danish Welfare Museum, Jacob Knage Rasmussen, this was the only known experiment in Danish history that used children under state care for research — and it was funded by the CIA in violation of the Nuremberg Code.

“I do not know of similar attempts, neither in Denmark nor in Scandinavia. It is appalling information that contradicts the Nuremberg Code of 1947, which after World War II was to set some ethical restrictions for experiments on humans. Among other things, informed consent was introduced, which today is central to the world of research”, Knage Rasmussen told Danish Radio. He emphasized the vulnerability of the group in the custody of the state, who had nobody to complain to.

According to Danish Radio, the idea to experiment on the vulnerable children came from American psychologist Zarnoff A. Mednick, who was then a professor at the University of Michigan.

According to Wennick and the National Archives, the research project was co-financed by the US health service. In the first year alone, the project was supported with what today corresponds to DKK 4.6 million ($700,000). It also received funding from the Human Ecology Fund.

The Human Ecology Fund was a CIA funded operation through the Cornell University College of Human Ecology Society for the Investigation of Human Ecology to support covert research on brainwashing. It was also connected to research under the MK-Ultra program in which social scientists, including anthropologists, were led (mostly unwittingly) to provide input into interrogation techniques still in use today.

Danish psychiatrist Fini Schulsinger dedicated his doctoral dissertation to the experiments in 1977, titling it, “Studies to shed light on the connection between heredity and environment in psychiatry.”

While researching for the documentary, Per Wennick managed to locate 36 boxes at the Psychiatric Centre Glostrup in Hvidovre that detailed the CIA’s unscrupulous child experiments. However, when the center got word of the documentary, they began shredding the documents.

Danish Radio reports that Kent Kristensen, associate professor of Health Law at the University of Southern Denmark, pointed out that the shredding of the documents was illegal.

Freedom First Beef

“I think it’s a huge failure for the former orphanage children who are interested in the pieces of their own childhood to get a total story made about their own lives. That possibility is deprived of them if you shred the research material,” Knage Rasmussen told Danish Radio.

Indeed. It also details the CIA’s depravity and violations of the Nuremberg code. If history is any indicator, however, no one will be held responsible for exploiting these children and it will be swept under the rug, likely escaping any scrutiny by the mainstream media.

  1. Reagan put a stop to a lot of the progressive’s demented doings, but he was no angel either. Perhaps he needed to be that way. We need to crush the progressives again apparently, they aren’t satisfied with experimentation anymore. Now they’re into full on genocide using a fake vaccine.

    1. Let’s hook you up then. See how you like it. “In the documentary, he recalled being placed in a chair, getting electrodes put on his arms, legs, and chest around the heart and having to listen to loud, shrill noises, which attempted to incite a psychological response.”

      1. He did say is was “Very uncomfortable”…..maybe we are using the modern notion of torture? Denying screen time. Making children do chores……making then uncomfortable…..sounds just like the North Koreans.

    2. Yep. Abuse certainly, no informed consent, but hey our Big Pharma and Big Medciine today has MURDERED 20,000+ Americans with their mRNA vaxx, for which hundreds of thousands also got sick way beyond “torture”, but just watch as this report goes global, but the current sadism of our medical profession goes ignored.

    3. Psychological torture is a thing too, or don’t you care about children’s psychological well being?

      You have no problem with people forcing you to watch The View or diaper Joe’s speeches, for hours on end?

  2. Early 1960’s. Kennedy and LBJ. These are the tolerant, inclusive, big hearted, generous, loving, non violent, sharing, caring Dems we hear so much about. Bet they forced by mandate these orphans to take jabs too like they do today. Dems never change.

  3. How convenient. Not a shred of evidence that the CIA did anything but apparently quite a bit that the Danes perpetrated this and wish to wash their sins by inserting CIA into the mix.

  4. This sort of thing was done by the CIA all during the 50s, 60, 70s and 80s. The idea that Reagan did anything to stop it is a joke. He was a proponent of it. There are books on this, MK Ultra and so forth. It probably still goes on. There are books by survivors of MK Ultra. A good movie is The Bourne series and Conspiracy Theory,

  5. A Jewish psychologist suggests abusive experimentation on Nordic children in Denmark. They were orphans. This was basically a CIA project. Why am I not surprised? I suppose the good news is that at least they were not trying to brainwash boys into thinking they are girls. Probably that’s a more recent CIA project. Thanks progressive Denmark. Yet another Scandinavian nation that touts its moral superiority and then sinks to new lows.

  6. I think we are forgetting something very important here….the CIA connection is only in funding the research….some douchebag Danish researcher had to come up with the idea, write the grant request, submit it, get the participation of another group of douchebag Danish orphanage officials and presumably Danish government officials. Hardly a CIA run operation. If I offer you $50.00 to write a report on what happens when you shoot a child in the head and you shoot your own child….with the agreement of the child’s mother…who is a fault for the shooting?

  7. As ‘Black Eagle’ posted above, there is unconstrained medical testing being performed on unwitting Citizens right now, TODAY! Barbarism has occured at every turn of human society and we need to stop what is being done to us NOW! To mandate every Citizen be injected with a untested concoction numerous times for a “virus” that it does not stop, is utterly insane!

  8. Research CIA and the MK ULTRA program, this example is on the tame end of the spectrum of what they’ve done. JFK ordered this to stop, when he was president, then he was murdered by LBJ and it continued.
    The movie Conspiracy Theory, with Mel Gibson, was based on the MK ULTRA program. They did much worse things than even that.
