Seems the CIA documents specifically mention creation of "cluster headaches" as a defense tool. This paragraph is found about half way down the referenced document. WOW! Your tax dollars at work!
At the outset of the CIA's behavior control endeavors the main emphasis
was on speech-inducing drugs. But when acid entered the scene, the
entire program assumed a more aggressive posture. The CIA's turned-on
strategic came to believe that mind control techniques could be applied
to a wide range of operations above and beyond the strict category of
"special interrogation". It was almost as if LSD blew the Agency's
collective mind-set -- or was it mind-rut? With acid acting as a
catalyst, the whole idea of what could be done with a drug , or drugs in
general, was suddenly transformed. Soon a perfect compound was
envisioned for every conceivable circumstance: there would be smart
shots, memory erasers, "antivitamins", knock-out drops, "aphrodisiacs
for operational use", drugs that caused "headache clusters" or
uncontrollable twitching, drugs that could induce cancer, a stroke or a
heart attack without leaving a trace as to the source of the ailment.
There were chemicals to make a drunk man sober and a sober man as drunk
as a fish. Even a "recruitment" pill was contemplated. What's more,
according to a document dated May 5, 1955, the CIA placed a high
priority on the development of a drug "which will produce 'pure
euphoria' with no subsequent letdown".
