O’Brien, “the only vocal and recovered survivor of the Central Intelligence Agency’s MK-ULTRA Project Monarch mind-control operation,” has a story to tell, and it’s some story—the most mind-blowing conspiratorial account to appear in recent years. Having undergone what must have been innumerable hypnotherapy sessions, O’Brien appears to have recovered the memories of dozens of people, and describes in detail the terror and torture she suffered at the hands of her mother, her father, Ronald Reagan, Dick Cheney, Bill ‘n’ Hill, Gerald Ford, George Bush, Kris Kristofferson, Larry Flynt, Sparky Anderson and “noted pedophile” Boxcar Willie. Senator Robert Byrd, of Virginia, inflicts unimaginable trauma upon her as he forces her to listen endlessly to his fiddle-playin’; and the favored text of the leaders of the American Empire would appear to be—The Wizard of Oz, although reinterpreted so as to allow for bleeding rectums. As you’d hope, there’s dialogue—lots of dialogue:
“How would you like to see where Uncle Ronnie really solves the world’s problems?” said President Reagan, shortly before poring over his collection of bestiality-themed pornography.
“Hillary had resumed examining my hideous mutilation and performing oral sex on me when Bill Clinton walked in. Hillary lifted her head to ask, ‘How’d it go?’ Clinton appeared totally unaffected by what he walked into, tossed his jacket on a chair and said, ‘It’s official. I’m exhausted. I’m going to bed.’” One reads the memoirs of O’Brien in awe, and stands back, equally exhausted. JW
