CIA team reports Havana Syndrome symptoms

One of CIA Director Bill Burns's team members was inexplicably targeted during a recent trip to India.
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.

Intelligence agencies have been formally investigating the phenomenon for months, however so far no explanation has been forthcoming.

As things stand, nobody knows who is responsible or how exactly it is being done.

This latest incident, which occurred when CIA Director Bill Burns visited India earlier this month, reportedly impacted a member of his team and is said to have left him "fuming" with anger.
What makes this particular case so disturbing is that the trip itself was very secretive and only a few individuals at the CIA would have been aware of Burns' private schedule.

Some have speculated that the incident was intended as a direct message to Burns by whoever is responsible to emphasize that nobody is safe and that anyone can be targeted.

When approached by the press, however, the CIA has revealed very little in the way of details.

"We don't comment on specific incidents or officers. We have protocols in place for when individuals report possible anomalous health incidents that include receiving appropriate medical treatment," said a spokesperson. "We will keep doing everything we can to protect our officers."

The bottom line is that someone must be doing this. Finding out who, how and why, however, is a challenge that will likely keep the country's top intelligence experts busy for quite some time.

Isn't the point that microwave weapons are all of a sudden being called official when before it was being designated to crazy?

It's not exactly rocket science to detect microwaves, at any frequency... and the symptoms are common and causable in other ways. In summary, if they haven't detected it, either they are not putting in much effort, or are incompetent, or there is nothing to detect and there is another cause, eg poisoning, psychosomatics, stress, metoo, ...

Do they have microwave detectors set up?
Comment icon #7 Posted by ChrLzs 2 years ago
You can carry one in your pocket.  A basic one is $50, or for a much wider range detection for not only microwaves but other radiation and EMFs, maybe $150 and upwards...  They'd spend more than that on lunch..

CNN reporting for the MIC, right?

Que? If you are questioning why I mentioned microwaves, search on Havana Syndrome wherever you like, and note that apart from pretty much all media, even some science agencies have made that suggestion.  Virtually everywhere it is discussed, microwaves or directed energy is raised as 'likely possibilities'.  But if you re-read what I posted, is it not clear that I don't think it has anything to do with EMFs or microwaves or directed energy...?

MIC = Military Industrial Complex. Why all of a sudden is the much-maligned CNN a credible source? It's satire.

I don't buy any of this cia bs,probably the cia trying to get more funding or just plain old deception.so they run to the press with reports of exotic directed energy weapons being used against their operatives that make them feel tired or gives them a headache. If someone wants to make them feel sick theres plenty of easier ways to do it.
