From the 1970′s to the 1990′s, a string of mail bomb attacks gained America’s attention. The bombs were peculiar in nature, having been made of wood and sometimes adorned with carvings. Eventually, a political manifesto, said to have been written by the bomber (or bombers — the authors refer to themselves as “we”) was published in the New York Times and Washington Post. In 1995, a Montana hermit named Ted Kaczynski was apprehended by the FBI and became known as the “lone nut” solely responsible for the attacks.
So many times in the cases of the high-profile mass shootings, bombings and assassinations, there is speculation about some sort of MKULTRA-style mind control of the patsy, MKULTRA generally being used as a blanket term. In the case of the Unabomber, however, Kaczynski literally was a victim of a branch of the CIA’s MKULTRA proper at Harvard University, where he had been enrolled at the age of sixteen, and yet very little has been written about it from a skeptical viewpoint.
As his brother, David, explains above, Ted was abused for three years in a program disguised as graduate psychological research but which actually sought behavior modification by covert means (and sounds a lot like Bill O’Reilly’s interview with Jeremy Glick). In Ted, we have all the ingredients of a supervillainous patsy, a new model of enemy to be devoured by the wrath of Joe Public, but is he really the guy, especially since it seems like guys like him — Atta and co., McVeigh and Nichols, Harris and Klebold, etc. — never really are, or at least that’s not the whole story? Many of the bombs, for instance, seem to have been beyond the ability of a man who lived without electricity. More information can be found here, here, here, here and here.
