In a groundbreaking study published by Executive Intelligence Review, the magazine founded by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr., historian Anton Chaitkin connects this project to the threatened and accomplished assassination of political leaders, which has become increasingly frequent in public life since the 1960s. ``Just since the 1992 election campaign, for example, Bill Clinton has been the target of at least 15 assassination threats. Many of these would-be killers, and many of the assassins of past years, had been in destructive psychiatric programs, or were members of psychiatrically manipulated cults,'' Chaitkin explains.
`A great obstacle to clear thinking in this area has been the assumption that the U.S. government would not sponsor programs for the murder of American leaders. This logical assumption misses the point, that the overall project, including `MK-Ultra,' has been foreign-sponsored and anti-American in its purposes,'' he writes. "The 12-page EIR cover story, written in the form of an informational dossier captioned "For Your Reference Files," outlines the British background of this deeply criminal enterprise, with its roots in the political and psychiatric movement. It begins with the buildup to World War I in 1909-13, when the Rockefeller Foundation was created and lavishly funded with Standard Oil profits, in parallel with the birth of the British-inspired Federal Reserve, the Internal Revenue Service, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
