IoT weaponised for sonic attacks on US diplomats
Re: “Cuba has duty to prevent attacks on US envoys: Trump”, The Nation, October 18.
The reality is that anybody, anywhere on earth, could have sent a variety of signals – from slight ear-itching irritation to a 5,000-, 10,000-, or 25,000-watt WHAMO that would give the target a severe headache, or worse – to any of the 22 US Embassy staff via satellite-microwave hardware. US diplomats in Havana are complaining of headaches, hearing problems and concussions. The US has cut staffing at its Havana embassy by 60 per cent in response to the incidents, expelled Cuban diplomats from Washington, issued a travel warning for Americans going to Cuba and stopped issuing visas for Cubans in Havana.

The company and phenomenon upon which it is based was called METME (Maximum Efficient Transfer of Modulated Energy). It was discovered by Englishman
