Full article: Project MKUltra

As Director of Central Intelligence, Helms was boss of the Technical Services Division, whose Chemical Division was headed up by Sidney Gottlieb. The family of Stanley Glickman took unsuccessful legal action against the CIA in this regard,[2] which was hampered by Helms' 1973 decision to order the complete destruction of all documents regarding the CIA's Project MKUltra.

Helms was found guilty of lying to congress and given a 2 year suspended sentence.[3]
