The “Sonic Attacks” in Cuba Aren’t What They Say They Are
U.S. diplomats in Havana suffered a series of neurological attacks between late 2016 and August 2017, but the American government is doing its best to keep the truth of what happened quiet.
During that period, 21 of the 24 members of the U.S. embassy’s community were hit with a variety of neurological symptoms. Afterwards, the U.S. government warned travelers to the country to stay away, implying that there might be some broad-based problem that could affect anyone. It also freely let rumors run wild about what the causes might be.
There was even a “level 3” travel alert designation placed by the United States on Cuba after what happened. That alert recommends that visitors “reconsider travel: avoid travel due to serious risks to safety and security.” The truth, especially when a few facts creep into the picture, may be even stranger than anything painted so far.
In a recent paper, entitled “Neurological Manifestations Among US Government Personnel Reporting Directional Audible and Sensory Phenomena in Havana, Cuba” and published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), what was discovered in the embassy was described in some detail. A medical group from the University of Pennsylvania’s Center for Brain Injury and Repair there noted that “persistent cognitive, vestibular and oculomotor dysfunction, as well as sleep impairment and headaches, were observed among U.S. government personnel in Havana, Cuba, associated with reports of directional audible and/or sensory phenomena of unclear origin.” They went on to say that “these individuals appeared to have sustained injury to widespread brain networks without an associated history of head trauma.”
There was only one problem with their exhaustive report. In the paper’s conclusions, it said: “At this point, a unifying explanation for the symptoms experienced by the U.S. government officials described in this case series remains elusive and the effect of possible exposure to audible phenomena is unclear. Before reaching any definitive conclusions, additional evidence must be obtained and rigorously and objectively evaluated.”
The researchers may not have found the cause of what happened, but in their analysis, they did eliminate the whole “sonic attack” theory. Those who had been hurt cited noises such as “a high-pitched sound,” “buzzing,” “grinding metal,” “humming” and “piercing squeals.” Yet the doctors said somewhat conclusively that the
sound was not likely to be the cause of the injuries to those affected. As Dr. Douglas Smith, MD, one of the co-authors of the study and the director of the Center for Brain Injury and Repair, said, “We think the audible sound was a consequence of the exposure, because audible sound is not known to cause brain injury.”
Other proposed causes, such as exposure to a virus or chemicals, were also rejected by the scientists.
There is another theory – one put forth by computer scientists and engineers from Zhejiang University in China and the University of Michigan – that the grinding noises heard by the U.S. personnel may have been caused by multiple ultrasonic carriers. Those carriers might have come from eavesdropping and jamming technologies, with the carriers colliding to create harm. In that study, the possibility was raised that “at this point, a unifying explanation for the symptoms experienced by the U.S. government officials described in this case series remains elusive and the effect of possible exposure to audible phenomena is unclear.”
Another rumor about the neurological effects – that those affected had suffered brain damage – was also debunked by the scientists in the JAMA article. Despite an early report disseminated via Associated Press (AP) articles in December, there was no substantive evidence of brain damage in any of those affected. As the JAMA article noted, MRI testing in all 21 of the subjects affected showed that “most patients had conventional imaging findings.”
What the study did refer to – but without conclusions – was that the U.S. citizens who had health problems in hotel rooms in Havana turned out to be “U.S. government personnel serving on diplomatic assignment in Havana, Cuba.” There were 11 women and 10 men in this group. They were described by U.S. officials as “members of the embassy community.” Strangely, for those attempting to understand what had happened, none of that group have gone public about their symptoms and none have identified who they are.
After investigation by CNN, AP and Propublica, the truth is finally coming out. The first four Americans who said they’d been affected by whatever happened were all CIA officers “working under diplomatic cover.”
In the Propublica story published on February 14, “The Sound and the Fury: Inside the Mystery of the Havana Embassy,” authors Tim Golden and Sebastian Rotella said that CIA officers examining who was hit by the phenomenon saw “a pattern that was anything but coincidental.” Even more specifically, the report said that “the first four Americans to report being struck by the phenomenon were all CIA officers working under diplomatic cover, as were two others affected later on.”
That was further supported by a parallel survey of 42 travel agencies by the Center for Responsible Travel (CREST). That study found that there were zero travelers hosted by all those agencies in 2017 who had come down with any of the neurological symptoms. A spokesperson from Cuba Education Travel (CET), an agency that brings travelers to Cuba, said, “We have brought more than 10,000 Americans to Cuba over the last few years – including thousands in 2017 and 2018 – and not one has reported any similar health issues during or after their visit.”
In contrast to what one might have imagined from the cases of that small group that was hurt by something, the CET representative said, “On the contrary, a leading response on post-trip surveys is how safe travelers feel in that country.”
The conclusions from all the data suggest a couple of things. The first is that the targets were neither general embassy personnel nor ordinary tourists. They were CIA, with perhaps some collateral damage of those who worked closely with the CIA personnel. The second is that this was likely a deliberate attack of some sort rather than an accident. The theory about possible neurological harm from overlapping ultrasounds mentioned earlier may sound plausible, but such a thing would likely have affected a broader range of people than just the small CIA group. The third is that the attack was of a very different nature than what most in the public might know of.
For those familiar with mind-control technology, the most logical and obvious explanation is that the neurological effects were a result of microwave based mind control that the U.S. military first developed in the 1960s. Microwaves can easily pass through the walls of a building whereas high frequency sound cannot.
Microwave weapons have been used for decades to induce sounds within victim's heads and at high enough levels the physical damage matches that described in the Cuban embassy personnel. Longterm effects include brain tumors and other brain diseases and dimentia.
In a rare public lecture, military scientist Dr. Eldon Byrd described some of the mind control technology he helped develop and he even played an audio record made by placing a microphone on the skull of a victim who heard voices in his head. The microwave was able to clearly pick up the sounds inside the person's head.

Warning, the lecture contains graphic and disturbing content.
The attacks in Cuba were certainly not the first microwave attacks on U.S. embassy employees. In the 1960s Russia used a microwave weapon against the U.S. embassy staff in Moscow. The power level measured in the embassy was about 5 watts per square centimeter, which is about 50 times stronger than is emitted by most modern cell phone towers.
When the U.S. government became aware of the attack they did not alert staff or block the signal. Instead they lied to embassy staff and studied the symptoms of the microwave exposure but called it the Moscow Viral Study. The study was actually part of a classified Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) project named Plan 562, or Project Pandora, which was a study on of the psychological and physiological effects of microwaves.
ARPA was renamed Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) in 1972.
DARPA'S most recent unclassified project to study the impact of microwave radiation on cells is called Radiobio, however, the project is likely just a decoy or psy-op as the research described was already done decades ago.
Given the blatant official disinformation surrounding the case, it is quite possible that the CIA or another rogue military agency targeted the Americans in order to justify rolling back the improvement in relations with Cuba. Certainly Cuba, China, Russia, Israel, Syria, Iran or another one of America's many enemies or allies could have targeted the agents as reprisal for the CIA'S many offenses. Since a clever teenager could easily build a microwave weapon, it could have even been the Cuban exile mafia trying to restore the lucrative funding from the CIA which they enjoyed for 60 years.
Psychotronic weapons are very real and used more commonly than one might imagine. In fact most people are now carrying their own personal psychotronic device — their cell phone.
