Down on DODies Pharm

Forgot about this year-old piece on the use of an anti-malarial drug (mefloquine, brand name Larium) on detainees at Gitmo that has side-effects that can cause serious problems including suicidal thoughts and hallucinations despite the fact that malaria was not considered a real danger in Cuba by many in the military. One Army doctor referred to its use as pharmacological waterboarding.

One also imagines that some company was paid for the contract to supply it (on American taxpayer dollars).

Article also references MKULTRA and some other human experimentation projects that went on in other places.
