1959 Bilderberg

Full article: 1959 Bilderberg

The 1959 Bilderberg Meeting was the eighth Bilderberg and the first one in Turkey, with an as yet unidentified relationship to the 1960 Turkish coup d'etat. Guests included Selim Sarper who was made Turkish Minister of Foreign Affairs on the day after the coup.

Psychological warfare

“In August 1959, ['Cees'] Van den Heuvel set up a foundation for research into human ecology based in the Hague. The title is indicative, if not conclusive: in 1955, the CIA had founded a Society for the Study of Human Ecology which changed name in 1961 to become the Human Ecology Fund. Both American organizations were funding conduits for the CIA's MK-ULTRA programme of research into mind control and brainwashing. Van den Heuvel's human ecology foundation would soon change titles to the Oost-West Stichting (East-West Foundation), which received funding from the BVD. According to an Italian secret service (SIFAR) report dated October 1963, the BVD funded a meeting in Barbizon near Paris on 5th - 8th October 1961 where "the participants decided to unite all efforts and initiatives of the struggle against Communism within a new organization and place these on a serious and expert footing."”
David Teacher [1]

Biological weapons

“A US Army operating manual from 1956 stated explicitly that biological and chemical warfare were an integral operating portion of US military strategy, were not restricted in any way, and that Congress had given the military “First Strike” authority on their use. In 1959, an attempt by Congress to remove this first-strike authority was defeated by the White House and bio-chemical weapons expenditures increased from $75 million to almost $350 million.”
Larry Romanoff (2020)  [2]
