3. Truly horriying, inconceivably brutal and yet....

 

I would not be all that shocked that stuff like this is happening as I tap out this text. Man's inhumanity to his fellow beings knows no bounds. It's one of the facets of the "superior" brain we've been cursed with.

4. I'm rather dubious that much of this is accurate. No references. No sources.

Sounds like Russian propaganda to me. the best propaganda mixes a little truth with a lot of fiction.

5. The France attack is far from conclusive

 

Which is where the CIA fits in. Never heard of the mental experiments on young girls among others, Code-named MKUltra:

"The mystery remains unsolved. And according to Kaplan, no clear answer will be forthcoming without new evidence." In other words, no real proof, yet.

the LSD test have been well documented

For decades, the U.S. Army conducted secret clinical experiments with psychochemicals at Edgewood Arsenal. In the nineteen-sixties, Army Intelligence expanded the arsenal’s work on LSD, testing the drug as an enhanced-interrogation technique in Europe and Asia. This companion piece to “Operation Delirium,” which ran in the December 17th issue of The New Yorker, documents the people who were involved and what they did.

In Senate subcommittee hearings in 1977 the army revealed:

Between 1949 and 1969 open-air tests of biological agents were conducted 239 times. In 80 of those experiments, the Army said it used live bacteria that its researchers at the time thought were harmless. In the others, it used inert chemicals to simulate bacteria.
In the 1950s army researchers dispersed Serratia on Panama City and Key West Florida with no known illnesses resulting.
In the 1950s army researchers dispersed zinc cadmium sulfide (now a known cancer-causing agent) over Minnesota and other Midwestern states to see how far they would spread in the atmosphere. The particles were detected more than 1,000 miles away in New York state. No illnesses were ever attributed to them as a result.
Bacillus globigii, never shown to be harmful to people, was released in San Francisco, New York, Washington, D.C., and along the Pennsylvania Turnpike, among other places.
In New York, military researchers in 1966 spread Bacillus subtilis variant Niger, also believed to be harmless, in the subway system by dropping lightbulbs filled with the bacteria onto tracks in stations in midtown Manhattan. The bacteria were carried for miles throughout the subway system. Army officials concluded in a January 1968 report that: "Similar covert attacks with a pathogenic disease-causing agent during peak traffic periods could be expected to expose large numbers of people to infection and subsequent illness or death."
In a May 1965 secret release of Bacillus globigii at Washington's National Airport and its Greyhound bus terminal more than 130 passengers were exposed to the bacteria traveling to 39 cities in seven states in the two weeks following the mock attack.[1]
