H.P. Albarelli, Jr.’s journey into the strange quirks and oddities he had discovered about the many people somehow associated with the assassination of President John Kennedy on November 22, 1963 is referred to as “high strangeness and synchronicity.” Michael Petro referred to it as “curious scraps of information.” Indeed, the numerous references to the many faces somehow connected to Kennedy (Lee Oswald, the Central Intelligence Agency [CIA], the Mob, the Federal Bureau of Investigation [FBI], and others) were often a bog of facts and comments, though tantalizing and dramatic, still seemed to be a jungle of confusing loose ends.
H.P. Albarelli, Jr.
The early part of the book was an attempt in tracing the dawn of psychiatry in the 1940s and 1950s leading to Intelligence Programs such as the CIA’s top-secret Projects MK/Naomi, MK/Ultra, and Project Artichoke.
“The CIA and the military, which were quickly drawn to the Program,” said Abarelli, “were becoming intrigued with the possibilities of creating what were then referred to as ‘aggressive soldiers’ and now are called ‘super soldiers.’”
Albarelli outlined a number of covert Intelligence Programs that could have been bedrock for “Manchurian Candidate” experiments of young children and the populace in general. Fort Detrick’s Special Operations (SO) Division is mentioned, the Office of Strategic Operations (OSS), agent George Hunter White, and the Federal Bureau of Narcotics (FBN).
Mind Control Techniques
The author suspected that Oswald could likely have been an early victim of such programs while at a detention center called Youth House. Oswald could have possibly entered into a psychotronic relationship with psychiatrists and covert operations. Doctor Milton Kurian and Dr. Renatus Hartogs were psychiatrists that connected with Oswald at Youth House. Hartogs had previously worked at the Allen Memorial Institute, Montreal, Canada, where Doctor D. Ewen Cameron, in the mid-1950s under a covert MK/Ultra contract with the CIA, “conducted a series of horrific drug and sensory deprivation experiments on unwitting patients.”
Military Special Operations
New York Post reporter Joseph Wershba questioned Dr. Hartogs on December 14, 1967 as to if Oswald could have been a Manchurian Candidate (referring to a 1962 film on controlled soldiers). Although his log seemed to dismiss such an allegation, Hartogs moved in circles of covert ML/Ultra and MK/Naomi and the “drug parties” of Dr. Harold A. Abramson. Dr. Hartogs was an “aficionado” of magic and a covert contractor for the CIA. He was acquainted with magician John Mulholland who wrote a manual for CIA operatives containing instructions on how to “surreptitiously dose unwitting people with drugs, and how to perform other feats of slight-of-hand.” The Hartogs/Freeman book, The Two Assassins, told of Oswald’s comments to his mother Marguerite concerning his return from Russia: “Mother, not even Marina knows why I returned.”
Dr. Hartogs’s sexual scandal with his patient Julie Roy seemed to coincide with the sexual scandal of Canadian psychiatrist Dr. James Tyhurst. Tyhurst associated with neuropsychologist Dr. Donald O. Hebb and “both attended a seminal 1951 meeting,” said Abarelli, “which included participants from the CIA – to discuss early advancements in sensory deprivation and brainwashing.”
Sinatra’s Movie Portrayal of a Manchurian Candidate
Investigator Dick Russell noted Hartogs’s interest in hypnotism (p. 53), as told by Dr. Milton V. Kline, authority on hypnotism and CIA cohort on Project Artichoke and MK/Ultra. Kline also disclosed that Hartogs, along with Dr. Sidney Malitz (a psychiatrist at the New York State Psychiatric Institute [NYSPI]) and Dr. Paul Hoch (NYSPI research director) were involved in a number of covert contracts with the CIA and the U.S Army “to perform experiments with psychosurgery, electroconvulsive therapy, LSD, mescaline, and other drugs.” Hartogs worked with Malitz on some of these experiments. Dr. Malitz worked with Fort Detrick’s Special Operations Division. These experiments were with unwitting patients, “children and teenagers.” Harold Blauer died because of such experiments. The CIA selected a group of 100 patients to join in these episodes (p. 35). Lee Harvey Oswald was absent from school for at least 50 days while in New York City.
In the early 1950s, hypnotist George Estabrook wrote to CIA director Allen Dulles about the merits of hypnosis in covert operations. “The CIA, U.S Army Fort Detrick, the Edgewood Arsenal, and the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI) funded many of these contracts. Chief among these physicians were: Drs. Bernard Withens, Harold Esecover, and Harold A. Abramson.”
Laboratory at Fort Detrick
Dr. Lauretta Bender, a child neuropsychistrist at the New York City Bellevue Hospital, experimented extensively on children using electroshock treatment, “DE patterning” and “annihilation.” Also involved was Dr. D. Ewen Cameron, who would eventually head the MK/Ultra subproject 68. Dr. Leon Eisenberg spoke of Bender’s patients in these experiments as “…psychotic and perhaps worse off than before the treatment.”
Allbarelli ventured through several interesting episodes that the reader would best explore. One such incident concerned Marguerite Oswald’s interview by Davis Eugene Boster, a life-long Foreign Service officer and covert CIA operative within the State Department. At one point, he was a staff assistant to Secretary of State John Foster Dulles. The interview also included State Department employees Denman F. Stanfield and Edward J. Hickey. Part of the conversation went:
Marguerite: “Now I know you are not going to answer me gentlemen, but I am under the impression that my son is an agent.”
Boster: “Do you mean a Russian agent?”
Marguerite: “No, working for our Government, a U.S agent.”
Marguerite also explained to the Warren Commission: “And this is the way I think, because I happen to know all of the other things that you don’t know – the life and everything…And I can almost back it up with things…yes, sir, I think my son was an agent. I certainly do.” (p. 64.)
Oswald was stationed at Atsugi Naval Air Base, Japan, a huge underground 50-acre CIA Field Installation, 1957-1958, at a time when Operation Artichoke physicians and technicians conducted “enhanced interrogations” at the base.
MULTI-DIMENSIONS of MEANING
Albarelli told of Oswald’s appearances at East Louisiana State Hospital. He also went through episodes involving psychiatrists Dr. Robert G. Heath, Dr. Frank Silva and Dr. Alfred T. Butterworth and their contributions to psychotronics. Albarelli told about the further mysterious workings of Archcha Smith, David Ferrie, Ferrie’s Civilian Air Patrol (CAP), detective Jack S. Martin, CIA operative June Cobb, and a mysterious Rose Cherami who also had been a patient at the East Louisiana State Hospital in 1961.
“The Oswald sighting at the East Louisiana State Hospital seems cut and dry, but as with most events concerning Oswald,” said Albarelli, “the facts surrounding dwell in another realm of ambiguity and interconnectedness, an alternate universe clouded by high strangeness where everything has multidimensions of meaning and truth.”
Albarelli had an interesting chapter on Rose Cherami (Melba Christine Marcades), mystery woman, hooker, and drug addict, who was committed to the East Louisiana State Hospital in Jackson, Mississippi following an auto accident on Highway 190. The state hospital was infamous in the annuals of the Kennedy assassination. Rose Cherami seemed to have been housed in several CIA-infiltrated facilities over the years. Louisiana detective Lt. Francis Paul Fruge investigated Cherami the day before the Kennedy assassination. While in the hospital, Cherami told Dr. Don Bowers that Kennedy was going to be murdered in Dallas.
Movie Depiction of Rose Cherami
Cherami had once worked for Jack Ruby in Dallas as a stripper and “drug courier.” She said he had seen Oswald with Ruby. She also contended that Ruby was involved in the planned assassination. Rose Cherami died from another auto accident on September 4, 1965.
Dallas police were not interested in Cherami’s testimony (p. 97), but Rose had quite a bit to say about drug trafficking in Texas. Albarelli continued into her career that connected “to yet another unsolved murder – that of Houston police detective Martin A. Billnitzer – and therefor to the Federal Bureau of Narcotics, George Hunter White, and the CIA…”
The Texas drug-trafficking scenario involved corruption throughout the state, CIA “Executive Action” contractor Jean Pierre Lafittie, CIA officials in “hypnotism training,” MK/Ultra, the findings of New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison, and the criminal involvement of Sergio Arcacha Smith and Emilio Santana.
“Billnitzer apparently committed suicide (shot himself twice) in his office the morning after being interviewed (by police investigators)…” (p. 115.) “…drugs put back on the street through the back door of the Houston Police Department but Billnitzer expanded his chief objective was to get these drugs off the streets permanently…” (p. 103.)
KALEIDIOSCOPE of FACES
The book was filled with bits, pieces and history of Intelligence operations and spies galore: a kaleidoscope of faces and bodies merged into each other as mingled smoke from the lanterns of crime: Drug dealers, corrupt law enforcement, CIA contract assassins, mafia mercenaries, and “shadow government agents”:
• CIA operative David Sanchez Morales.
• CIA operative Charles William Thomas.
• Dr. Sidney Gottlieb.
• Operative Vida June Cobb.
• Project Bluebird.
• Operative David Atlee Phillips.
• JM/Wave CIA station in Miami, Florida.
• ZR/Alert and ZR/Awake (hypnotically-controlled operations).
• Operative Nicholas Deak.
These subjects appear to be, at times, a confusing conglomeration that often seemed contradictory to each other.
Journalist Dale E. Basye promulgated that Oswald was hypnotized in Russia; Eric Ritzek claimed he used hypnotism on Oswald in America. There were many loose ends in the book. By the time a reader got to the end of the book, much of it appeared to be confetti. It would take some extra research by the reader to make further steps and further trails. Alberelli had certainly gathered a lot of information, but he had done nothing to make sense of the chips as they lay.
OSWALD in MEXICO
An example of this quizzical magic involved in the Kennedy tales was the question as to whether Oswald was a house party at the Ruben Duran home in Mexico City on October 1 or 2, 1963. There was always a question if it was really Oswald. Multiple descriptions seemed to indicate that it might be Oswald.
Adventurer and criminal Robert Clayton Buick claimed to have met Oswald at the Hotel Luma in late September, 1963. Oswald supposedly referred to himself as Alex Hidell (which was said to be in another assassination book as an accepted code-name for CIA operatives). Oswald spoke of Kennedy as “going to get hit” and that “ultimate morality is to remove the head of the creature and replace it with another.”
While these statements seemed to indict Oswald as a knowing criminal in the planned assassination, we also knew that Intelligent Operatives hid behind fallacious “cover” stories at times in their “directives”; if, indeed, this person ‘was’ Oswald and not a doppelganger or “body double.”
The Use of Doppelgangers
In the notes on page 452, Albarelli quoted an email messages from Robert Clayton Buick on this matter: “…Oswald was seemingly more revealing (in a sense) trying to tell me (in reality) to stop this plot to kill the President and I truly believe this after I have reviewed this encounter over and over again and researched his specific intent throughout the many years.”
This quote seemed to fit accurately the undercover aspirations of a covert Intelligence Operative trying to be a hidden spy in the plot.
During Oswald’s alleged trip to Mexico City in September-October, 1963 he met CIA operative June Cobb and Eunice Odio. A former intelligence operative told Albarelli to heed the Rosicrucian Order. Odio had been Second Grade Superior of the Temple. Albarelli found significance in the fact that the last book Oswald had read before the assassination of Kennedy was The Shark and the Sardines by Juan Jose Arevelo and translated by June Cobb and Raul Osequeda. The reason why Oswald, speculated Albarelli, held the book out of the library so long was Oswald’s prospective meeting with CIA Operative June Cobb and her Rosicrucian friends in Mexico City. The book was issued to Oswald on November 6, 1963 but not returned until February 1964.
The Rosicrucian Order was a secret society from the early 1600s and the Ancient and Mystical Order Rosae Crucis was founded in 1915. An esoteric order, the religion was said to have influenced the Freemasons. The Rosicrucians were followers of the Brethren of the Rose Cross, with origins that date back to the early seventeenth century. Well-known Mexican and Latin American people helped fill the ranks, as well as a history of secret societies in the world of spies and spooks. Alberelli saw this as another synchronism.
(“The beliefs of the Rosicrucian Order were described as Gnostic, occult and cabalistic in nature. This is due to the fact that members of the Rosicrucian Order believed that true knowledge of the universe can only be known by the elite, who in turn had a responsibility to share this knowledge with the masses.”)
(From a Christian anti-occult viewpoint, Uncommon Sense Media [2011, 01490383, http://usminc.org/rosicrucian.html.%5D gave a thorough history of the Order.)
RAMIREZ and SIRHAN
Investigator Paul Dale Roberts, who was working in the Criminal Investigation Division (CID) and the Drug Suppression Team (DST) in May 1975, also held a Top Secret clearance in Special Background Investigation (SBI) as an Intelligence Analyst, and later received an H-Identifier with Opposing Forces (OPFOR). Roberts discovered a Rosicrucian connection with infamous killers.
In an interview with the cousin (nicknamed by Roberts as Texas Slinger) of the nefarious killer Richard Munoz Ramirez (The Night Stalker), the cousin divulged that Ramirez was a member of the Rosicrucians. Roberts additionally uncovered that Sirhan Sirhan, the murderer of Robert Kennedy, was also a member. Sirhan allegedly had been a Manchurian Candidate assassin-tool.

Dr. Rauni-Leena Luukanen-Kilde, M.D., scientist, author, investigator and former Chief Medical Officer of Finland spoke of the mysterious history of psychotronics and mind control:
Dr. Rauni-Leena Luukanen-Kilde
“Mind control techniques can be used for political purposes. The goal of mind controllers today is to induce the targeted persons or groups to act against his or her own convictions and best interests. Zombified individuals can even be programmed to murder and remember nothing of their crime afterward.
“This ‘silent war’ is being conducted against unknowing civilians and soldiers by military and Intelligence agencies,” continued Luukanen-Kilde. “Since 1980, electronic stimulation of the brain (ESB) has been secretly used to control people targeted without their knowledge or consent. All international human rights agreements forbid nonconsensual manipulation of human beings – even in prisons, not to speak of civilian populations.”
LOOKED LIKE HIM
After all the meanderings in the book, perhaps the most interesting depiction was in the front of the book; this scene was from another assassination tome altogether, D.M. Thomas, Flying into Love, 1992:
“He thought he would go down to the lunch-room and have a coke. They must be in the building by now. It was so easy to hide, with such confusion, so many stacks of crates here, there and everywhere. They might even be hiding in a crate, with the rifles. Including his Mannlicher-Carcano and three of four bullets they’d fired from it. He had no idea who ‘they’ were, only that one of them looked like him, as it happened.”

The lone gunman that we hear about in assassinations, assassination attempts, school shootings, etc. is mind-controlled individuals who had been ‘programmed’ to carry out those missions. Ted Bundy, the ‘Son of Sam’ serial killer David Berkowitz, Oswald…Oswald did not actually shoot Kennedy, but he was part of the process. Timothy McVeigh (He was a patsy and had help), the Columbine shooters, John David Chapman, Sirhan Sirhan, etc. were mind controlled individuals who were programmed to perform these killings. Jon Bennet Ramsey easily could have been a mind control victim; Patsy Ramsey almost surely was.

The plans to create a mind controlled worker society have been in place for a long time. The current technology grew out of experiments that the Nazis started before World War II and intensified during the time of the Nazi concentration camps when an unlimited supply of children and adults were available for experimentation.
We have heard about the inhumane medical experiments performed on concentration camp prisoners, but no word was ever mentioned by the media and the TV documentaries of the mind control experiments.
