Newly declassified report suggests Havana Syndrome might be caused by directed energy, contradicting officials

Several weeks after the intelligence community very publicly disavowed claims that “Havana Syndrome”—the bizarre rash of neurological disorders plaguing U.S. foreign service officials—was the result of a directed energy weapon, a newly declassified report alleges that may very well be what it is.

The group behind the report, the Intelligence Community Experts Panel on Anomalous Health Incidents (AHIs), was established by the government to figure out just what the heck had happened to the 1,000-ish American officials who claim to have suffered from “Havana”’s bizarre symptoms. Those symptoms, which first cropped up at a U.S. embassy in Cuba in 2016 and soon spread to other parts of the globe, include a rash of inexplicable ailments—things like hearing and memory loss, severe headaches, light sensitivity, nausea, and a host of other debilitating issues.

If you’re somehow just joining this story, you should know that one of the most prevalent and controversial theories about the syndrome’s origins is that it’s caused by a “sonic weapon”—some sort of spooky unknown mechanism that can fire electromagnetic energy at targets. Hypothetically, this energy is what’s causing the kinds of mental and physical anguish that “Havana” victims appear to suffer from. It’s a wild explanation (albeit one that scientists seem to agree is technically possible) and it’s also one of the most recurrent theories to be posited amidst a truck load of others (“Havana” has also been blamed on pesticides exposuremass delusions, and crickets, among many other things).

Well, after a substantial research effort to get to the bottom of Havana Syndrome’s seemingly impenetrable mystery, the IC panel ultimately released their findings to the government, but the contents of the report have remained classified—until now, that is. [Continue reading…]
