A drug addicted religious leader with disputed CIA connections who lead a commune of almost 1000 people to Guyana, South America.

Jim Jones was a nominally Christian religious leader who gathered followers in the USA before buying land in Guyana and moving the whole group there. This terminated tragically in the Jonestown massacre which killed over 900 people. CIA connections are suspected by many but not definitively proven.

Drug addiction

Jim Jones was drug dependent, and in his body a level of Pentobarbital was detected that would have been fatal to anyone who had not developed a tolerance.

CIA connections?

Clear evidence about CIA ties to Jim Jones and Jonestown remains lacking,[citation needed] but several alternative theories exist, which suggest that Jonestown was an outgrowth of a CIA mind control research project Mk Ultra.[1][2][3]

Mae Brussel

In August 1977 (Broadcast #282) Mae Brussell discussed Jim Jones and the Peoples Templ's move to Guyana. She speculated it might be a training camp for assassination teams.[4]

Brian Michael Jenkins“Key in the planning level of any terrorist activities linked to the Guyana horror-show is Brian Jenkins of the Rand Corporation. Jenkins is cooperating at high executive levels with British intelligence in planning terrorist operations, and has taken a key role in planning the cult phase of terrorism. This should not be surprising to anyone who is informed of the background of Rand or its various involvements in creating Jones and other cults. Rand was integral, together with such entities as Israeli intelligence and the Office of Naval Intelligence's British-controlled National Training Laboratories, in furthering the British "MK-Ultra" project run under Allen Dulles's CIA cover. Undercover and other most-reliable sources have given us a hard dossier on a very, very "dirty" Brian Jenkins.”Brian Michael Jenkins5 December 1978
