US Government Investigators Still Believe Havana Syndrome is a Directed-Energy Attack

Published by Slashdot on Sat, 09 Oct 2021

The U.S. government's investigation into Havana Syndrome "is turning up new evidence that the symptoms are the result of directed-energy attacks," reports Politico, citing five U.S. lawmakers and officials who've been briefed on the matter:Behind closed doors, lawmakers are also growing increasingly confident that Russia or another hostile foreign government is behind the suspected attacks, based on regular briefings from administration officialsalthough there is still no smoking gun linking the incidents to Moscow.... The phenomenon is getting more high-level attention as government officials have continued to report incidents in countries across Europe, Asia, Africa and South America throughout the year. Most prominently, Vice President Kamala Harris' August trip from Singapore to Vietnam was delayed more than three hours when multiple U.S. personnel reported symptoms consistent with Havana Syndrome in Hanoi... A Biden administration official emphasized that the investigation is ongoing and has not yet reached specific conclusions... While CIA Director William Burns and lawmakers briefed on the matter have publicly referred to the incidents as attacks, some officials remain skeptical of the prevailing theory, and some prominent neurologists have described that explanation as implausible. But members of the Senate Intelligence Committee, who are receiving weekly updates from the intelligence community on the status of the investigation, said the latest information they've received has disproved the skepticsand in public statements, those lawmakers are increasingly referring to the incidents as directed-energy attacks. Politico quotes one Republican Senator as saying "There have been new additional attacks, which is very disturbing. It's being taken very seriously now due to the director of the CIA ... [who] has put very highly qualified people on it..." The Senator also dismissed the theory that the illness was merely psychosomatic. "I don't know how you could argue that when brain imaging is showing a traumatic brain injury, somehow this is psychosomatic."Read more of this story at Slashdot.
