Are they using microwave weapons to attack the brains of American diplomats, spies, and military personnel?
The Joe Biden administration is under pressure to solve the unsolved mystery of its predecessor: Are opponents using microwave or radio wave weapons to attack the brains of American diplomats, spies, and military personnel?
The number of reported possible attacks has increased sharply, and legislators on both sides and those affected are demanding answers. But scientists and officials are still not sure who initiated the attack, whether these symptoms were accidentally caused by surveillance equipment, or whether these events were actually attacks.
The end of the formal investigation may have huge consequences, even triggering calls from the United States for a strong response.
At present, the government is ensuring that this matter is taken seriously, is actively investigating, and will ensure that the affected people receive good medical care.
The problem is called “Havana Syndrome” because the first case in 2016 affected the staff of the U.S. Embassy in Cuba. Currently, there are at least 130 cases under investigation in the government, compared with dozens of cases in the United States last year. Granted to Pentagon officials who are not authorized to discuss the case publicly. The National Security Council is leading the investigation.
Affected people have reported symptoms of headache, dizziness and concussion, some of which require several months of treatment. Some people say that they heard loud noises before the onset of symptoms.
It is particularly shocking that at least two possible incidents have occurred in the Washington area, including one near the White House in November. An official reported feeling dizzy.
The New York Times was the first to report an increase in cases. CNN first reported the incident near the White House, and again in November.
Chris Miller, the acting secretary of defense in the last few months of the Donald Trump administration, met a soldier at the end of last year who was “pierced” and stinging in an unidentified country. After the stabbing, a team was formed to study this phenomenon.
Miller told the Associated Press: “He is well trained and has participated in battles before.” “This is an American, a member of the Department of Defense. At that time, you can’t ignore this.”
Defense and intelligence officials have publicly pledged to find answers and better care for people with symptoms. Lieutenant Colonel Thomas Campbell, spokesman for the Department of Defense, said that the cause of any incident “is an area of active investigation.” Although some affected people suspect that Russia is involved, the authorities have yet to name the suspicious country.
