    Severe hearing loss of US diplomats in Cuba blamed on 'covert sonic device' planted in earshot of their homes as investigators probe possible Russian link
    • US diplomats, who were living in housing owned and maintained by the Cuban government, began suffering unexplained losses of hearing in fall 2016
    • Officials concluded that the diplomats had been attacked with an advanced sonic weapon that operated outside the range of audible sound
    • The US has expelled two Cuban diplomats from the United States in retaliation
    • The FBI looking into whether the incident was carried out by another country

    They simply can't let go of the 'muh Russians' narrative. Liberalism is a disease!

    I thought they were being gassed, but this sounds plausible. Why can't we get along with the Russians? Trump should have never signed that bill. It put him in the hole with them, the NKs and Iran has been surprisingly silent.

    I wouldn't be surprised to learn it was a covert CIA operation ordered by the C.I.C.... But if it was, we'll never know about it.

    Cuba would be an opportune locale from which to launch proxy ICBMs at CONUS.

    Why are we (CIA) using sonic attacks on our own diplomats and blaming Russia?

    Because it's the Ruskie's silly. They are to blame for everything that goes on. All the Ruskie's eat and sleep bad thoughts against the deep state. I think they are even the reason my 'morning dump' is off schedule, plus my cat has been turned even. She no longer jumps into my lap, and makes fake attempts just so I will believe she is trying. Yeah, the Ruskie's are very dangerous, and we need to support WW III to stop them ASAP.

    Trump will THROW OUT Cuban diplomats over sonic attacks on the US embassy in Havana which left 21 Americans seriously hurt
    • The Trump administration is preparing to ask Cuba to withdraw 60 per cent of its diplomats from Washington
    • It comes in response to last week's U.S. move to cut its own embassy staff in Havana by a similar percentage
    • The United States will formally ask Cuba to pull the diplomats, but won't expel them forcefully unless Havana refuses, the officials said
    • It comes as the U.S. seeks to protect its own diplomats from unexplained attacks that have harmed at least 21 Americans in Havana

    Doctors treating the U.S. Embassy victims of invisible attacks in Cuba have discovered brain abnormalities as they try to explain loss of vision, hearing, balance and memory
    • Cuban US embassy staff subjected to mysterious attacks have brain damage
    • It is not yet know what has caused US embassy victims' damage
    • Whatever it was, it caused damage to the brain's white matter tracts

    New documents shed light on acoustic attacks in Cuba


    CBS News
    STEVE DORSEY
    8 hrs ago


    WASHINGTON -- Newly disclosed declassified documents from Global Affairs Canada obtained by CBS News reveal Canadian officials were calling incidents affecting American diplomats in Havana, Cuba, "attacks" as far back as April 26 -- months before the U.S. State Department first publicly acknowledged them as such.

    Cuba health attacks: Here's the sound U.S. diplomats heard

    In a May 26 internal email update on the situation -- that also affected Canadian personnel -- a Canadian foreign service officer wrote: "Starting in late November and lasting until April 21, U.S. diplomats posted to Havana have been a target of acoustic attacks."

    Canadian victims reported symptoms including "headaches, dizziness, nausea, hearing loss, nosebleeds, cognitive functions including loss of short term memory," similar to those of at least 24 Americans in Havana suffered.

    According to the documents, on June 18, Health Canada Overseas Medical Advisor Dr. Jeffrey Chernin arrived in Havana for meetings with Canadian embassy staff regarding "possible injuries due to exposure to an acoustic device."

    The records were first obtained by The Canadian Press through a public records request. The 71-pages of internal notes and emails cover a period from April to August. They are heavily redacted, including nearly an entire page that describes the "targets" of the "attacks." Many documents were originally marked as secret.

    Cuba denies it had anything to do with what injured Americans and Canadians -- and has tried to cast doubt on U.S. claims that they were targets of bizarre attacks.

    Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Arizona, told The Associated Press in Havana in an interview released Saturday: "The Cuban Interior Ministry is saying the FBI has told them there is no evidence of a sonic attack, even though that term is being used, attack, there is no evidence of it. Something happened, we don't know what it was, but there is no evidence the Cuban Government attacked diplomats here."

    A spokesman for Flake did not respond to a request for additional comment.

    Watch: Cuba victim tells CBS News "complaints were ignored"

    The U.S. has withdrawn most of its embassy personnel in Havana, and forced many Cuban embassy officials in Washington to leave the country.

    But Chernin found "the high incidence of cases in multiple neighborhoods demonstrates that it is an ongoing problem and does not fit with other patterns specifically raised as questions [redacted] (e.g. viral such as flu, hearing loss due to age."

    The documents show the injuries prompted panic at the Canadian post, with one official writing: "Whatever it is we are dealing with, HAVAN is clearly seriously concerned and employees' well-being is being affected."

    The situation also triggered security precautions including a "Review of security protocols, guards, patrols, and a consultation on sound blocking devices, recording equipment."

    The documents also raise questions about how much the U.S. knew, but kept from the public.

    Despite the State Department's Canadian counterparts calling them attacks for months, the U.S. only first publicly acknowledged them as "incidents" to CBS News Aug. 9. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has since said he's "convinced these were targeted attacks."

    The Canadian documents also suggest the injuries were being widely discussed outside government circles and classified channels even as the governments of both Canada and the U.S. were silent on the situation.

    One document prepared over the summer suggested Global Affairs Canada draw up a response to the media in case the situation was leaked to the press, saying "reports are that the issue is being discussed even at a Virginia school."
