How We Reverse Engineered the Cuban “Sonic Weapon” Attack
Throughout last year, mysterious ailments struck dozens of U.S. andCanadian diplomats and their families living in Cuba. Symptoms includeddizziness, sleeplessness, headache, and hearing loss; many of the afflictedwere in their homes or in hotel rooms when theyheard intense, high-pitched sounds shortly before falling ill. In February, neurologists who examined the diplomats concluded that the symptoms were consistent with concussion, but without any blunt trauma to the head.
Suggested culprits included toxins, viruses, and a sonic weapon, but to date, no cause has beenconfirmed.
