They began their careers at age seven, at the height of the Cold War, as part of a series of government-authorized experiments to create the perfect spies, filed under code names such as MKULTRA, Artichoke, Monarch, and Paperclip. Their minds and bodies conditioned to endure physical and psychological strains, they grew up to become America’s secret weapons, trained to attack, infiltrate, and seduce. Recent release of classified documents reveals the truth about this Jason Bourne-like spy network, a top-secret program to train children to become guerrilla leaders, assassins, and couriers of information. One child spy became Sgt. Thomas O’Neil, a courier so thoroughly conditioned that nothing would cause him to divulge the codes he had memorized. The other became Lt. Rick Shaw, a tactical specialist with intense training in weaponry and elite team leadership. What no one realized was that Lt. Rich Shaw and Sgt. Thomas O’Neil were not the men others thought them to be. They were sisters. Secret Weapons is the fascinating, studiously documented true story of Cheryl and Lynn Hersha. Through analysis of previously classified CIA files and extensive interviews with experts and participants, this chilling, incredible true story is at last coming to light.
