US Diplomats in Cuba Suffered Traumatic Brain Injuries

Last week we learned a group of US diplomats stationed in Cuba had suffered “hearing loss” and investigators believed they were affected by a “sonic weapon” of which they weren’t aware.

In addition to hearing loss, other symptoms incurred included dizziness, loss of balance, severe fatigue and headaches.  This was reported in 2016, a year after the embassy in Cuba reopened in 2015. Those who stayed for a short period of time reported symptoms as well.

This week we learn that ten US and five Canadian diplomats suffered mild traumatic brain injury by alleged sonic attacks that may have damaged their nervous system.

The attack may have been a device emitting high-powered sound waves (but inaudible to the human ear) that damage delicate auditory nerve cells as well as those in other organs. Studies have found exposure to such frequencies to not only cause deafness but nausea, headaches, and even lung and liver injuries in mice.

The Cuban government had rejected the allegations saying, “Cuba has never permitted, nor will permit, that Cuban territory be used for any action against accredited diplomatic officials or their families, with no exception.” They have launched an investigation as well after pressured by Rex Tillerson, Secretary of State.

This is a developing story.
