Hundreds of New Havana Syndrome Cases Reported


WASHINGTON, DC, July 27 — The hunt for the cause of the sinister Havana Syndrome continues as hundreds of new cases emerge among U.S. government employees and their families.

The illness, which has debilitating symptoms with no apparent natural causes, has led to the notion that the victims may have been targeted by a so-called directed energy device.

An NBC News report says that as many as 200 new cases of Havana Syndrome have been recorded to date from all over the world. The report noted that “A U.S. official with knowledge of new potential cases of so-called Havana Syndrome said a steady drumbeat of cables has been coming in from overseas posts reporting new incidents — often multiple times each week.”

It also underscored the global nature of the syndrome, quoting officials who claim that to date, there have been syndrome cases on every continent except Antarctica.

CIA Director William Burns has assembled a task force to investigate the source and the methods of what could be targeted attacks. Burns assigned an unnamed CIA veteran of the agency’s Counterterrorism Center, who played a key role in the hunt for Osama bin Laden, to head up the task force.

AMAC News coverage last week of the outbreak in Austria pointed out that “it is unlikely the Havana Syndrome is caused by some naturally occurring infection.” For one thing, the symptoms appear to be of a “physical nature,” the result of an injury such as a concussion rather than an illness.

Victims consistently describe crippling symptoms such as dizziness, migraine-like headaches, nausea, loss of balance, visual problems, and difficulty with thinking and remembering.

Some claim that they heard a “stabbing” noise and felt intense pressure on their faces prior to succumbing to the ailment.

As has been the case in every incident of the Havana Syndrome since it was first identified in 2016, all of the 200 new cases are government employees and or their relatives.

As for the cause, it is still under investigation. However, the National Academies of Science [NAS] conducted a probe and found that “In examining plausible causes of these illnesses, the committee that conducted the study and wrote the report considered the possibilities of directed, pulsed radiofrequency energy, chemical exposures, infectious diseases such as Zika, and psychological issues. An Assessment of Illness in U.S. Government Employees and Their Families at Overseas Embassies says that among the mechanisms the committee considered, directed, pulsed radiofrequency energy appears to be the most plausible mechanism in explaining these cases; especially in individuals with the distinct early symptoms.”

If indeed, the Havana Syndrome is inflicted by some sort of “ray gun,” as the NAS suggests, it poses several critical questions:

  • Who has such weaponry? According to Professor James Giordano, a senior fellow at the U.S. Naval War College, the Soviet Union was working on the technology for such a weapon, and it was taken over by the Russian Federation when the U.S.S.R. fell apart. And he notes, China is known to have developed its own so-called directed energy device.
  • Why would such devices be developed? The consensus is that there is a new arms race that is focused on microwave-based directed energy guns, ultimately eliminating the need for bulky bullets and bombs.
  • But why use such a weapon on random targets? The targets of the Havana Syndrome appear not to be so random; to date, they have all been Americans and Canadians, and they have all been involved, directly or indirectly, in government work. Professor Giordano has suggested that the perpetrators may be engaged in field tests. As he put it, the Russians and the Chinese are “very interested in, and dedicated to, developing non-kinetic tools that can be leveraged below the threshold of what would normally be considered acts of war, so as to engage in processes of mass disruption.”

There is a Doctor I can’t remember her name I think she is from UK but this was happening to her when she was in Germany!

I smell a rat… China, Russia, Cuba, maybe… I would not put this past our own DOJ agencies using this against political enemies since they are now in the game of politicizing to the advantage of their Marxist driven Democrat Party… I’m talking CIA, possibly FBI involvement as this is based on their own ill begotten behavior against the very people they are supposed to be protecting, the American people…
Yes, we need to be looking outside our borders & just as importantly we need to be looking within, very closely…

Sounds like a democratic thing

I’m not totally dismissing the idea that this technology could be the culprit here, but the constant stream of lies, deception, and corruption in government and the media make me skeptical to say the least.
Fear-mongering is rampant and confusion and uncertainty are hanging over peoples’ heads like dark storm clouds. We are being led around like cattle with rings in their noses.
To believe or not believe? That is the question!

If you’re into physics, you should read up on the subject of ultra high frequency ultrasonics and their potential effects on human organs and tissues over prolonged periods of exposure. The white papers on the subject have been out for about 20 years or so and no doubt have served as the basis for development of a weaponized and directed means to deliver a concentrated effect in a targeted manner.

Our own military was, at one point, developing prototypes of ultrasonic crowd control vehicles in the 1980’s to early 1990’s. Even 60 Minutes showed a live test of a prototype on some soldiers. It appeared quite effective even at low power settings. Ultimately under Clinton a lot of the advanced weaponry research our country was doing was shelved. Obviously either the Russians and / or Chinese did not abandon their own similar research.

What else is coming according to nih. I’ll still vote in person. I will not vote by mail in ballets. If received I will take to election board. Not telling me I already voted. I want proof that I voted and who for.

Another repeated article on this subject. The medical community has already identified the cause and it has been reported quite a while ago. At least you got it right that both the Russians and Chinese have successfully developed and weaponized this directed energy technology. Both countries are engaged in advanced weapons research in a number of areas, while the United States sits largely on the sidelines. That is going to come back and bite us in the a$$ one day, if we’re the only ones abiding by our treaties and so-called international conventions.

Time for us to get hold of this technology and “fight fire with fire”. It’s the only way to stop this from increasing and spreading.
