Dr. Louis Joyon “Jolly” West was an amazing man. He had contact with, and most importantly influence over infamous and world changing individuals such as Charles Manson, Jack Ruby, Sirhan Sirhan, David Koresh and Timothy McVeigh. Whats even more amazing is that you've probably never heard of him.
While he is most famous for killing a 7,000 lbs elephant with LSD (West was on acid at the time as well), Dr West was also the director of the UCLA Neuropsychiatric Institute and worked for the CIA in the controversial and sometimes fatal MK-ULTRA brainwashing/mind control programs. He has received federal grants in excess of $5 million to perform mind-control experiments using various drugs, hypnosis, and even using electric cattle prods on children.
After Jack Ruby killed Lee Harvey Oswald, Jolly West was brought in to evaluate Ruby. He tried to convince Ruby to plea insanity, which he refused. Ruby claimed to know about the conspiracy to kill Kennedy, and that those responsible were high level government officials. Tragically, Ruby died of cancer before his re-trial.
Dr. West visited Timothy McVeigh at least a dozen times in prison. What's interesting is that before McVeigh went “crazy”, he worked at the Calspan Advanced Technology Center. This company was founded with the “Fund for the Study of Human Ecology” which was funded by the CIA for mind-control experiments under the direction of West and other CIA doctors. He was also in charge of a “psychological trauma team” that would evaluate and treat the victims' families and survivors of the OKC bombing.
Charles Manson, Sirhan Sirhan (accused killer of Robert Kennedy), and David Koresh (Branch Davidian religious cult leader and self proclaimed prophet) all received visits from Dr. West as well. He sure does have a nack for getting involved in assassinations and other violent events. While it's nothing new to claim these individuals were sleeper agents, Dr. West with his Top Secret CIA clearance and involvement with MK-ULTRA does shine some new light on the subject. Whether or not he programmed them before the events took place or only fine tuned them after the fact, one thing is clear: Dr. West was a key element in the outcome of some of America's deadliest tragedies.
