The term Manchurian Candidate derives from a 1959 novel by Richard Condon titled "The Manchurian Candidate." Condon portrays a platoon of American soldiers during the Korean War who are sent to Manchuria (Northeast China), where they captured, brainwashed, and given alter personalities programmed to assassinate key individuals and overthrow the US government.
As a result, the term Manchurian Candidate now signifies a person who has had their personality split into "alters" which commit murder or other acts without conscious knowledge of what they've done.
The CIA has declassified over 18,000 pages of documents on extensive mind control programs carried out since the early 1950s.
