Havana Syndrome could be caused by pulsed energy devices – US expert report

A US intelligence report by a panel of expert scientists has named pulsed electromagnetic energy and ultrasound as plausible causes for the mystery Havana Syndrome symptoms suffered by US diplomats and spies in recent years.

The report found that a group of cases could not be explained by health or environmental factors or by psychosomatic illness. It also said that devices exist with “modest energy requirements” which were concealable and could produce the observed symptoms and be effective over hundreds of meters or through walls.

The panel, established last year by the director of national security, Avril Haines, and the CIA director, William Burns, said the investigation was not tasked to identify a culprit, but in a statement accompanying the report, Haines and Burns said it would help sharpen the search for the origins of they mysterious ailments.

“We will stay at it, with continued rigor, for however long it takes,” they said.

    That doesn't give you right to choose who can comment on this site and who cannot. What goes in journals is entirely the user's responsibility. I don't agree with Runaway's politics or medical advice either. You are not forced to read them.

    People express similar opinions each day in the MSM, on TV, and on the internet. Contrary to your personal desires it has not been made illegal in the USA. This site was established there for this very reason - it has freedom of speech enshrined in its Constitution.

    If you wish to have the right to choose what people can and cannot say you can start your own site somewhere else. We can give you all the software but from then on you would be on your own. Good luck!

    If SN continues to be complicit in his "opinions", I imagine there are several espionage laws in several countries that could have jurisdiction.
