2.8 described in the case st!dies e6amined in "revio!s cha"ters After a brief introd!ction( Kr Hammond began $ith saying%

+In -hicago at the first international congress $here rit!al ab!se $as tal#ed abo!t I can remember thin#ing( +Ho$ strange and interesting / I can recall many "eo"le listening to an e6am"le given that somebody tho!ght $as so idiosyncratic and rare( and all the "eo"le coming !" after saying( +Cee( yo!Pre treating one( tooH To!Pre in Seattle Well( IPm in Toronto Well( IPm in 1lorida

The fascinating thing $as that as I did a tele"hone cons!lt $ith a thera"ist that IPd been cons!lting $ith for :!ite a n!mber of months on an MPK case in another state( I told her to in:!ire abo!t certain things She said( +Well( $hat are those thingsH/ I said( +IPm not going to tell yo!( beca!se I donPt $ant there to be any "ossibility of contamination >!st come bac# to me and tell me $hat the "atient says / She called me bac# t$o ho!rs later( and said( +I 9!st had a do!ble session $ith this "atient and there $as a "art of him that said( XAh( $ePre so e6cited If yo! #no$ abo!t this st!ff( yo! #no$ ho$ the -!lt Programmers get on the inside and o!r thera"y is

2.1 going to go so m!ch faster 7

IPve cons!lted in eleven states and one foreign co!ntry( in some cases over the tele"hone( in some cases in "erson( in some cases giving the thera"ist information ahead of time and saying( +<e very caref!l ho$ yo!

So I have gone from someone #ind of ne!tral and not #no$ing $hat to thin# abo!t it all( to someone $ho clearly believes rit!al ab!se is real and that the "eo"le $ho say it isnPt are either naive li#e "eo"le $ho didnPt $ant to believe the Holoca!st orUtheyPre dirty /

Immediately $e get the !nderstanding that these victims are not confined geogra"hically( and in addition( an insight into ho$ Kr Hammond a""roached his investigation as to avoid 7hy"notic s!ggestion7 and other techni:!es $hich the 71alse Memory Syndrome 1o!ndation7 cites as the basis of all rit!al ab!se claims The last line( stating that those $ho deny the e6istence of rit!al ab!se are either naive or dirty( $as met $ith lots of a""la!se from the a!dience

2.< +What they basically do is they $ill get a child and they $ill start this in basic forms( it a""ears( by abo!t t$o and a half after the childPs already been made dissociative TheyPll ma#e him dissociative not only thro!gh ab!se( li#e se6!al ab!se( b!t also things li#e "!tting a mo!setra" on their fingers and teaching the "arents( +To! do not go in !ntil the child sto"s crying Anly then do yo! go in and remove it / They start in r!dimentary forms at abo!t t$o and a half and #ic# into high gear( it a""ears( aro!nd si6 or si6 and a half( contin!e thro!gh adolescence $ith "eriodic reinforcements in ad!lthood

<asically( in the "rogramming the child $ill be "!t ty"ically on a g!rney They $ill have an I V in one hand or arm TheyPll be stra""ed do$n( ty"ically na#ed TherePll be $ires attached to their head to monitor electroence"halogra"h "atterns They $ill see a "!lsing light( most often described as red( occasionally $hite or bl!e TheyPll be given( most commonly I believe( Kemerol Sometimes itPll be other dr!gs as $ell( de"ending on the #ind of "rogramming They have it( I thin#( do$n to a science $here theyPve learned yo! give so m!ch every t$enty0five min!tes !ntil the "rogramming is done

They then $ill describe a "ain on one ear( their right ear generally( $here it a""ears a needle has been "laced( and they $ill hear $eird( disorienting so!nds in that ear $hile they see "hotic stim!lation to drive the brain into a brain $ave "attern

The victim testimony of the !se of dr!gs and other techni:!es is fascinatingly similar to the available evidence regarding M50ULTRA e6"eriments s!ch as Kr =$an -ameron7s 7"sychic driving7 and the doc!mented search for dr!gs $hich hel" ind!ce hy"nosis The references to this ty"e of mind control being !nderta#en at military bases certainly seems abs!rd( as does Pa!l <onacci7s claim that he $as victimi;ed at Aff!t Airforce <ase <!t remember the New York Times article cited earlier that referenced @) different military instit!tions having se6!al ab!se scandals $ithin a @ year "eriod( and the de"ths of horrors !nleashed at West Point and PresidioH Another im"ortant as"ect that Kr Hammond mentions is the creation of certain brain $ave state before the "rogramming begins When a mind control s!b9ect $o!ld be "!t into a certain brain $ave state and hy"nosis( then their "rogramming co!ld only be activated !nder that brain $ave state( a ty"e of 7state0de"endent learning7 This increases the amnesiac effect of the ab!se and "rogramming from the "rimary "ersonality of
