It would seem that MK-Ultra is now operationally deployed....

The Brain Machine Interfaces Program represents a major DSO thrust area that will comprise a multidisciplinary, multipronged approach with far
reaching impact. The program will create new technologies for augmenting human performance through the ability to noninvasively access codes in the
brain in real time and integrate them into peripheral device or system operations. Focus will be on the following areas:
1. Extraction of neural and force dynamic codes related to patterns of motor or sensory activity required for executing simple to complex motor or
sensory activity (e.g., reaching, grasping, manipulating, running, walking, kicking, digging, hearing, seeing, tactile). Accessing sensory activity
directly could result in the ability to monitor or transmit communications by the brain (visual, auditory, or other). This will require the
exploitation of new interfaces and algorithms for providing useful nonlinear transformation, pattern extraction techniques, and the ability to test
these in appropriate models or systems.
2. Determination of necessary force and sensory feedback (positional, postural, visual, acoustic, or other) from a peripheral device or interface that
will provide critical inputs required for closed loop control of a working device (robotic appendage or other peripheral control device or system).
Such feedback could be received from peripheral systems or sent directly into appropriate brain regions.
