    High alert: At least two mysterious directed-energy attacks on American soil panic US officials

    The White House is on high alert after US officials after people suddenly fall ill during at least 2 mysterious directed-energy attacks on American soil, including one close to the White House.

    After Cuba, now the White House! Federal agencies are investigating at least two possible incidents on US soil, including one near the White House in November of last year, that appear similar to mysterious, invisible attacks that have led to debilitating symptoms for dozens of US personnel abroad.

    Multiple sources familiar with the matter explained that while the Pentagon and other agencies probing the matter have reached no clear conclusions on what happened, the fact that such an attack might have taken place so close to the White House is particularly alarming.

    Defense officials briefed lawmakers on the Senate and House Armed Services Committees on the matter earlier this month, including on the incident near the White House. That incident, which occurred near the Ellipse, the large oval lawn on the south side of the White House, sickened one National Security Council official, according to multiple current and former US officials and sources familiar with the matter.

    In a separate 2019 episode, a White House official reported a similar attack while walking her dog in a Virginia suburb just outside Washington, GQ reported last year.

    Those sickened reported similar symptoms to CIA and State Department personnel impacted overseas, and officials quickly began to investigate the incident as a possible “Havana syndrome” attack. That name refers to unexplained symptoms that US personnel in Cuba began experiencing in late 2016 – a varying set of complaints that includes ear popping, vertigo, pounding headaches and nausea, sometimes accompanied by an unidentified “piercing directional noise.”

    Rumors have long swirled around Washington about similar incidents within the United States.

    While the recent episodes around Washington appear similar to the previous apparent attacks affecting diplomats, CIA officers and other US personnel serving in Cuba, Russia and China, investigators have not determined whether the puzzling incidents at home are connected to those that have occurred abroad or who may be behind them.

    Defense officials who briefed lawmakers said it was possible Russia was behind the attacks, but they did not have enough information to say for sure. Another former US official involved in the investigation at the time said China was also among the suspects.

    Mysterious attacks

    The US has struggled to understand these attacks since 2016 and 2017, when diplomatic and intelligence personnel in Cuba first began reporting alarming symptoms that seemed to appear out of the blue. Intelligence and defense officials have been reluctant to speak publicly about the strange incidents, and some who were impacted have complained publicly that the CIA did not take the matter seriously enough, at least initially.

    The attacks eventually led to a dramatic drawdown of staff at the outpost in Havana under the Trump administration. Personnel in Russia and China reported similar, unexplained incidents. Though there’s no consensus as to what causes the symptoms, one State Department-sponsored study found they likely were the result of microwave energy attacks.

    Mysterious attacks more common than realized

    Directed energy attacks (or 'Havana Syndrome') are far more widespread than had been previously reported. The mysterious condition, which causes a range of symptoms such as fatigue, headaches and nausea, is named after a spate of such incidents which began in Havana, Cuba back in 2016.

    At the time, it was believed that US diplomats were being targeted by some sort of directed energy weapon by unknown foreign agents with the goal of disrupting diplomatic ties with the country.

    Now according to officials, the symptoms of these perplexing attacks have been experienced by as many as 130 individuals - making it far more widespread than anyone had realized.

    The victims include spies, diplomats, soldiers and other US personnel both at home and abroad. Three CIA officers have been targeted since December 2020, with the most recent occurring just two weeks ago. In each case, the victim was required to undergo treatment to help them recover.

    Another case - this time from 2019 - has also now come to light. It involved a military officer who was serving overseas when he was overwhelmed by nausea and headaches after stopping briefly at an intersection. His two-year-old son, who was in the back, had also started to cry.

    After they pulled away, the symptoms immediately ceased.

    Both the Trump and Biden administrations have ordered investigations into the phenomenon. Some Pentagon officials suspect Russia is to blame, however this remains unconfirmed.

    "As of now, we have no definitive information about the cause of these incidents, and it is premature and irresponsible to speculate," said Amanda J. Schoch, the spokeswoman for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.
