Blinken tells diplomats State Department lacks answers for “Havana syndrome”

Blinken tells diplomats State Department lacks answers for

As many as 200 Americans working overseas have experienced symptoms of “Havana syndrome,” or mysterious brain injuries. First reported at the U.S. embassy in Cuba in 2016, Havana syndrome has caused some American diplomats lasting brain trauma that interferes with their abilities to function.

Incidents have since occurred in Guangzhou, China, and Vienna, Austria.

Although an enemy state sending direct energy attacks so precise as to harm only one person sounds like something out of a science-fiction novel, it’s actually the most likely answer. The attacks, under this hypothesis, would use microwave radiation to damage the brain.

Other ballparks: infectious diseases, exposure to pesticides or specific cricket noises, or mass psychogenic illness. Here’s how Blinken attempted to reassure our diplomats.
