(UnitedVoice.com) – In 2016, Americans working in Havana, Cuba started experiencing symptoms similar to a traumatic brain injury (TBI) that authorities later attributed to possible “sonic attacks.” In 2017, a US diplomat in China had similar issues. Now, there are indications it hit officials on American soil.
According to reports, in 2019, a White House staffer was walking her dog in Arlington, Virginia, when she started feeling odd symptoms. Additionally, a US diplomat and his family fell ill while living in Philadelphia in 2018. A third incident wasn’t reported in detail but was also on American soil.
On October 19, the New York Times reported experts believe the sonic attacks may have been perpetrated by Russian bad actors.
The "sonic attacks" remain a bizarre story, but this jumps out. "Some top American officials insist on seeing more evidence before accusing Russia. Gina Haspel, the C.I.A. director … is not convinced it was responsible or that attacks occurred"

CIA Director Gina Haspel said they’ve not found a cause. A Russian spokesman said the accusations are probably a case of “mass hysteria.” There are still a lot of questions swirling, but it’s certainly disturbing that the alleged attacks happened on US soil.
