Havana syndrome hits US diplomats in Vienna

Who or what is responsible for the mystery symptoms ? Image Credit:
Cases of unexplained illness among US diplomats are now being investigated by the authorities in Austria.
The mysterious condition, which causes a range of symptoms such as fatigue, headaches and nausea, is named after a spate of such incidents which began in Havana, Cuba back in 2016.

At the time, it was believed that US diplomats were being targeted by some sort of directed energy weapon by unknown foreign agents with the goal of disrupting diplomatic ties with the country.

Now the phenomenon has appeared again - this time in Vienna and again involving US diplomats.

Authorities on both sides of the Atlantic are now investigating.
"We take these reports very seriously and, according to our role as the host state, are working with the US authorities on a joint solution," the Federal Ministry of European and International Affairs said in a statement.

"The security of diplomats dispatched to Austria and their families is of utmost priority for us."

The US State Department, meanwhile, also released a statement, saying:

"In coordination with our partners across the US Government, we are vigorously investigating reports of possible unexplained health incidents among the US Embassy Vienna community or wherever they are reported."

As things stand, however, no definitive explanation of the phenomenon has been found.

Interesting that this is only happening to Americans. Are Americans behind it?

What do you mean by this? Some sort of false flag attacks? Or that there is some kind of "war" going on between American factions at these embassies?

Well the spooks may just be targeting Americans to test new hardware. Doubtful, but it's not beyond them to do just that.

CIA Director William Burns says he has redoubled the agency's efforts to uncover the cause of Havana Syndrome — the mysterious set of ailments that has afflicted more than 200 U.S. officials and family members around the world. That includes the assignment of a senior officer who once led the hunt for Osama bin Laden to lead the investigation and tripling the size of a medical team involved in the probe, Burns told NPR on Thursday in his first sit-down interview since being confirmed as the agency's chief in March.

U.S. Embassy personnel in Bogota, Colombia, have reported symptoms aligned with the mysterious “Havana syndrome” that continues to plague U.S. spies and diplomats around the globe. U.S. officials said Tuesday that two cases were initially reported by embassy personnel in the capital city, but said several others may have been affected. Embassy staff was alerted to the “anomalous health incidents” involving at least five families connected to the embassy in a mid-September email, according to The Wall Street Journal, who first reported the latest known cases in a baffling string of attacks that...

This is the third thread I've seen of this. First it is, then it isn't, then it is. On the other thread a member brought up the 'Moscow Signal' then I found some articles pertaining to it. It definitely sounds almost identical to the Moscow Signal that was discovered on the US embassy in Russia during the Cold War from the 1950's-70's.

Long before Havana Syndrome, the U.S. reported microwaves beamed at an embassy In 1996, Michael Beck and a colleague at the National Security Agency were sent to a "hostile country" on a brief assignment. After being detained at the airport for about an hour, they were allowed to go, but they knew they were being closely watched. A few days into the assignment, Beck woke up at his hotel feeling terrible.
