Hearing loss of US diplomats in Cuba blamed on covert device

Recommended Posts

WASHINGTON — The two-year-old U.S. diplomatic relationship with Cuba was roiled Wednesday by what U.S. officials say was a string of bizarre incidents that left a group of American diplomats in Havana with severe hearing loss attributed to a covert sonic device.

In the fall of 2016, a series of U.S. diplomats began suffering unexplained losses of hearing, according to officials with knowledge of the investigation into the case. Several of the diplomats were recent arrivals at the embassy, which reopened in 2015 as part of former President Barack Obama’s reestablishment of diplomatic relations with Cuba.

Some of the diplomats’ symptoms were so severe that they were forced to cancel their tours early and return to the United States, officials said. After months of investigation, U.S. officials concluded that the diplomats had been exposed to an advanced device that operated outside the range of audible sound and had been deployed either inside or outside their residences. It was not immediately clear if the device was a weapon used in a deliberate attack, or had some other purpose.

Well you'd have to be an idiot for believing self-named "satan" or going along with his "gay pedo retard globe" kockamamy schemes. After he offended them, people were stupid for still being there. Kinda like nk

I think its funny that the first we heard of this on the news was a few days ago. This morning a news anchor said, "the health issues with the diplomats was caused by a high frequency device".  

I was totally surprised to hear those words come out of his mouth.

How tha heck are we supposed to protect ourselves from this type of frequency warfare?

Locally there was quite a discussion on the issue.  Remember our Marxist government is well aligned with Cuba. However, it does sound plausible - but if a device was used, how was it managed when there was interaction between diplomats and locals?  Was it simply a case of prolonged exposure that caused the damage thus not harming those who were only exposed for few minutes / hours at a time?

It is entirely possible this hearing loss was a result of those "ultrasonic pest repeller" devices. Some can hit 140+dB and it isn't like Cuba follows international safety standards so they may make and use even louder ones.
