Tom O’Neill CHAOS - Charles Manson, The CIA & The 60s

Tom O'Neill spent 20 years writing CHAOS - a book that rose out of the ashes of an article for Premiere Magazine about Charles Manson and the Manson Family. Throughout the years he discovered that the legendary book "Helter Skelter" by Vincent Bugliosi was not only incomplete but misleading. He discovered that the CIA may have been involved with Charles Manson as part of one of the multiple questionable projects they ran in the 60s like CHAOS and MKUltra along with COINTELPRO with the FBI. We go all over the place and especially focus on the possible CIA involvement with psychiatrist Louis Jolyon West aka "Jolly West."
