Microwave Weapons Are Prime Suspect in Ills of U.S. Embassy Workers

Doctors and scientists say microwave strikes may have caused sonic delusions and very real brain damage among embassy staff and family members.

By William J. Broad

Sept. 1, 2018


During the Cold War, Washington feared that Moscow was seeking to turn microwave radiation into covert weapons of mind control.

More recently, the American military itself sought to develop microwave arms that could invisibly beam painfully loud booms and even spoken words into people’s heads. The aims were to disable attackers and wage psychological warfare.

Now, doctors and scientists say such unconventional weapons may have caused the baffling symptoms and ailments that, starting in late 2016, hit more than three dozen American diplomats and family members in Cuba and China. The Cuban incidents resulted in a diplomatic rupture between Havana and Washington.

The medical team that examined 21 affected diplomats from Cuba made no mention of microwaves in its detailed report published in JAMA in March. But Douglas H. Smith, the study’s lead author and director of the Center for Brain Injury and Repair at the University of Pennsylvania, said in a recent interview that microwaves were now considered a main suspect and that the team was increasingly sure the diplomats had suffered brain injury.

“Everybody was relatively skeptical at first,” he said, “and everyone now agrees there’s something there.” Dr. Smith remarked that the diplomats and doctors jokingly refer to the trauma as the immaculate concussion.

Strikes with microwaves, some experts now argue, more plausibly explain reports of painful sounds, ills and traumas than do other possible culprits — sonic attacks, viral infections and contagious anxiety.

In particular, a growing number of analysts cite an eerie phenomenon known as the Frey effect, named after Allan H. Frey, an American scientist. Long ago, he found that microwaves can trick the brain into perceiving what seem to be ordinary sounds.

Hearing Microwaves

Scientists have known for decades that the brain can perceive some microwaves as sound.

The false sensations, the experts say, may account for a defining symptom of the diplomatic incidents — the perception of loud noises, including ringing, buzzing and grinding. Initially, experts cited those symptoms as evidence of stealthy attacks with sonic weapons.

Members of Jason, a secretive group of elite scientists that helps the federal government assess new threats to national security, say it has been scrutinizing the diplomatic mystery this summer and weighing possible explanations, including microwaves.

Asked about the microwave theory of the case, the State Department said the investigation had yet to identify the cause or source of the attacks. And the F.B.I. declined to comment on the status of the investigation or any theories.

The microwave idea teems with unanswered questions. Who fired the beams? The Russian government? The Cuban government? A rogue Cuban faction sympathetic to Moscow? And, if so, where did the attackers get the unconventional arms?

At his home outside Washington, Mr. Frey, the scientist who uncovered the neural phenomenon, said federal investigators have questioned him on the diplomatic riddle and that microwave radiation is considered a possible cause.

Mr. Frey, now 83, has traveled widely and long served as a contractor and a consultant to a number of federal agencies. He speculated that Cubans aligned with Russia, the nation’s longtime ally, might have launched microwave strikes in attempts to undermine developing ties between Cuba and the United States.

“It’s a possibility,” he said at his kitchen table. “In dictatorships, you often have factions that think nothing of going against the general policy if it suits their needs. I think that’s a perfectly viable explanation.”

Microwaves are ubiquitous in modern life. The short radio waves power radars, cook foods, relay messages and link cellphones to antenna towers. They’re a form of electromagnetic radiation on the same spectrum as light and X-rays, only at the opposite end.

While radio broadcasting can employ waves a mile or more in length, microwaves range in size from roughly a foot to a tiny fraction of an inch. They’re seen as harmless in such everyday uses as microwaving foods. But their diminutive size also enables tight focusing, as when dish antennas turn disorganized rays into concentrated beams.

The dimensions of the human head, scientists say, make it a fairly good antenna for picking up microwave signals.

Mr. Frey, a biologist, said he stumbled on the acoustic effect in 1960 while working for General Electric’s Advanced Electronics Center at Cornell University. A man who measured radar signals at a nearby G.E. facility came up to him at a meeting and confided that he could hear the beam’s pulses — zip, zip, zip.

Intrigued, Mr. Frey traveled to the man’s workplace in Syracuse and positioned himself in a radar beam. “Lo,” he recalled, “I could hear it, too.”

Mr. Frey’s resulting papers — reporting that even deaf people could hear the false sounds — founded a new field of study on radiation’s neural impacts. Mr. Frey’s first paper, in 1961, reported that power densities 160 times lower than “the standard maximum safe level for continuous exposure” could induce the sonic delusions.

His second paper, in 1962, pinpointed the brain’s receptor site as the temporal lobes, which extend beneath the temples. Each lobe bears a small region — the auditory cortex — that processes nerve signals from the outer and inner ears.

Investigators raced to confirm and extend Mr. Frey’s findings. At first they named the phenomenon after him, but eventually called it the microwave auditory effect and, in time, more generally, radio-frequency hearing.

The Soviets took notice. Not long after his initial discoveries, Mr. Frey said, he was invited by the Soviet Academy of Sciences to visit and lecture. Toward the end, in a surprise, he was taken outside Moscow to a military base surrounded by armed guards and barbed-wire fences.

“They had me visiting the various labs and discussing the problems,” including the neural impacts of microwaves, Mr. Frey recalled. “I got an inside look at their classified program.”

Moscow was so intrigued by the prospect of mind control that it adopted a special terminology for the overall class of envisioned arms, calling them psychophysical and psychotronic.

Soviet research on microwaves for “internal sound perception,” the Defense Intelligence Agency warned in 1976, showed great promise for “disrupting the behavior patterns of military or diplomatic personnel.”

Furtively, globally, the threat grew.

The National Security Agency gave Mark S. Zaid, a Washington lawyer who routinely gets security clearances to discuss classified matters, a statement on how a foreign power built a weapon “designed to bathe a target’s living quarters in microwaves, causing numerous physical effects, including a damaged nervous system.”

Mr. Zaid said a N.S.A. client of his who traveled there watched in disbelief as his nervous system later unraveled, starting with control of his fingers.

Washington, too, foresaw new kinds of arms.

In Albuquerque, N.M., Air Force scientists sought to beam comprehensible speech into the heads of adversaries. Their novel approach won a patent in 2002, and an update in 2003. Both were assigned to the Air Force secretary, helping limit the idea’s dissemination.

The lead inventor said the research team had “experimentally demonstrated” that the “signal is intelligible.” As for the invention’s uses, an Air Force disclosure form listed the first application as “Psychological Warfare.”

The Navy sought to paralyze. The Frey effect was to induce sounds powerful enough to cause painful discomfort and, if needed, leave targets unable to move. The weapon, the Navy noted, would have a “low probability of fatalities or permanent injuries.”

In a twist, the 2003 contract was awarded to microwave experts who had emigrated to the United States from Russia and Ukraine.

It is unknown if Washington deploys such arms. But the Pentagon built a related weapon known as the Active Denial System, hailing it in a video. It fires an invisible beam meant to deter mobs and attackers with fiery sensations.

Russia, China and many European states are seen as having the know-how to make basic microwave weapons that can debilitate, sow noise or even kill. Advanced powers, experts say, might accomplish more nuanced aims such as beaming spoken words into people’s heads. Only intelligence agencies know which nations actually possess and use such unfamiliar arms.

The basic weapon might look like a satellite dish. In theory, such a device might be hand-held or mounted in a van, car, boat or helicopter. Microwave arms are seen as typically working over relatively short distances — across the length of a few rooms or blocks. High-powered ones might be able to fire beams across several football fields, or even for several miles.

The episode in Cuba

The Soviet collapse in 1991 cut Russia’s main ties to Cuba, a longtime ally just 90 miles from the United States. The shaky economy forced Moscow to stop providing Havana with large amounts of oil and other aid.

Vladimir Putin, as Russia’s president and prime minister, sought to recover the economic, political and strategic clout that the Soviets had lost. In December 2000, months after the start of his first presidential term, Mr. Putin flew to the island nation. It was the first visit by a Soviet or Russian leader since the Cold War.

He also sought to resurrect Soviet work on psychoactive arms. In 2012, he declared that Russia would pursue “new instruments for achieving political and strategic goals,” including psychophysical weapons.

In July 2014, Mr. Putin again visited Cuba. This time he brought a gift — the cancellation of some $30 billion in Cuban debt. The two nations signed a dozen accords.

A Russian spy ship, Viktor Leonov, docked in Havana on the eve of the beginning of reconciliation talks between Cuba and the United States in early 2015, and did so again in subsequent years. Moscow and Havana grew so close that in late 2016, the two nations signed a sweeping pact on defense and technology cooperation.

As a candidate, Donald Trump faulted the Obama administration’s normalization policy as “a very weak agreement” and threatened to scrap it on reaching the White House. Weeks after he won the election, in late November 2016, the American embassy in Havana found itself battling a mysterious crisis.

Diplomats and their families recounted high-pitched sounds in homes and hotel rooms at times intense enough to incapacitate. Long-term, the symptoms included nausea, crushing headaches, fatigue, dizziness, sleep problems and hearing loss.

The State Department filed diplomatic protests, and the Cuban government denied involvement. In May, the F.B.I. opened an investigation and its agents began visiting Havana a half year after the incidents began. The last major one hit that summer, in August, giving the agents relatively little time to gather clues.

In September 2017, the Trump administration warned travelers away from Cuba and ordered home roughly half the diplomatic personnel.

Rex W. Tillerson, who was then the secretary of state, said the embassy’s staff had been targeted deliberately. But he refrained from blaming Cuba, and federal officials held out the possibility that a third party may have been responsible.

In early October, President Trump expelled 15 Cuban diplomats, producing a chill between the nations. Administration critics said the White House was using the health issue as a pretext to end President Barack Obama’s reconciliation policy.

The day after the expulsions, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee held a closed, top secret hearing on the Cuba situation. Three State Department officials testified, as did an unnamed senior official of the Central Intelligence Agency.

The Hypothesis

Early this year, in January, the spooky impact of microwaves on the human brain never came up during an open Senate hearing on the Cuba crisis.

But in a scientific paper that same month, James C. Lin of the University of Illinois, a leading investigator of the Frey effect, described the diplomatic ills as plausibly arising from microwave beams. Dr. Lin is the editor-in-chief of Bio Electro Magnetics, a peer-reviewed journal that explores the effects of radio waves and electromagnetic fields on living things.

In his paper, he said high-intensity beams of microwaves could have caused the diplomats to experience not just loud noises but nausea, headaches and vertigo, as well as possible brain-tissue injury. The beams, he added, could be fired covertly, hitting “only the intended target.”

In February, ProPublica in a lengthy investigation mentioned that federal investigators were weighing the microwave theory. Separately, it told of an intriguing find. The wife of a member of the embassy staff, it reported, had looked outside her home after hearing the disturbing sounds and seen a van speeding away.

A dish antenna could fit easily into a small van.

The medical team that studied the Cuba diplomats ascribed the symptoms in the March JAMA study to “an unknown energy source” that was highly directional. Some personnel, it noted, had covered their ears and heads but experienced no sound reduction. The team said the diplomats appeared to have developed signs of concussion without having received any blows to the head.

In May, reports emerged that American diplomats in China had suffered similar traumas. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called the medical details of the two groups "very similar” and “entirely consistent" with one another. By late June, the State Department had evacuated at least 11 Americans from China.

To date, the most detailed medical case for microwave strikes has been made by Beatrice A. Golomb, a medical doctor and professor of medicine at the University of California, San Diego. In a forthcoming paper to be published in October in Neural Computation, a peer-reviewed journal of the MIT Press, she lays out potential medical evidence for Cuban microwave strikes.

She compared the symptoms of the diplomats in Cuba to those reported for individuals said to be suffering from radio-frequency sickness. The health responses of the two groups, Dr. Golomb wrote, “conform closely.”

In closing, she argued that “numerous highly specific features” of the diplomatic incidents “fit the hypothesis” of a microwave attack, including the Frey-type production of disturbing sounds.

Scientists still disagree over what hit the diplomats. Last month, JAMA ran four letters critical of the March study, some faulting the report for ruling out mass hysteria.

But Mr. Zaid, the Washington lawyer, who represents eight of the diplomats and family members, said microwave attacks may have injured his clients.

“It’s sort of naïve to think this just started now,” he said. Globally, he added, covert strikes with the potent beams appear to have been going on for decades.

Francisco Palmieri, a State Department official, was asked during the open Senate hearing if “attacks against U.S. personnel in Cuba” had been raised with Moscow.

“That is a very good question,” Mr. Palmieri replied. But addressing it, he added, would require “a classified setting.”

For his part, Mr. Frey says he doubts the case will be solved anytime soon. The novelty of the crisis, its sporadic nature and the foreign setting made it hard for federal investigators to gather clues and draw conclusions, he said, much less file charges.

“Based on what I know,” he remarked, “it will remain a mystery.”

Tsiteeri:
Evidence from communications intercepts has pointed to Moscow’s involvement during the investigation involving the FBI, CIA and other agencies, NBC reported, citing three unidentified U.S. officials and two other people briefed on the probe.

The evidence, however, is not conclusive enough for the United States to assign blame publicly to Moscow, according to the NBC report.

The FBI said it did not have a comment on the NBC report. A U.S. government source familiar with official assessments said intelligence agencies would not confirm the report.

Veidi on uuritud Kuubal viibinud diplomaatide tervisliku seisundit. Selge on, et muutuseid on olnud.
Tsiteeri:
A group of U.S. government workers potentially exposed to unexplained phenomena in Cuba have less white matter in their brains and less connectivity in the areas that control vision and hearing than similar healthy people, doctors have found.

The findings from University of Pennsylvania researchers are the most specific to date about the neurological condition of the U.S. diplomats, spies and their families who reported strange sounds and sensations while serving in Havana between 2016 and 2018.

Yet while doctors found "significant differences" in their brains compared to a control group, they couldn't say whether they were caused by whatever may have happened in Cuba, nor whether those differences account for the Americans' symptoms.

Lisaks Kuubale toimus antud helirelvaga tüli tegevate inimeste mõjutamine ka Venemaal, Austraalias, Taiwanil, Hiinas ja USA-s. Viimati ka Poolas vähemalt 2 korda.
Tsiteeri:
He was a senior CIA official tasked with getting tough on Russia. Then, one night in Moscow, Marc Polymeropoulos's life changed forever. He says he was hit with a mysterious weapon, joining dozens of American diplomats and spies who believe they’ve been targeted with this secret device all over the world—and even at home, on U.S. soil. Now, as a CIA investigation points the blame at Russia, the victims are left wondering why so little is being done by the Trump administration.

In the spring of 2018, a private neurologist gave Polymeropoulos a diagnosis: occipital neuralgia, a condition resulting from damage to the two nerves that run from the base of the skull, curving toward the front of the head. Despite the private diagnosis, Polymeropoulos says the Agency kept refusing to refer him to the University of Pennsylvania, telling him it wasn’t necessary.

As he grasped for an explanation, Polymeropoulos was paying careful attention to what was being discovered about the incidents in Cuba and China. By the summer of 2018, scientists, intelligence officials, and journalists were zeroing in on a potential culprit: microwave weapons.

The notion of weaponizing microwaves dates back to the Cold War, when, in 1961, an American biologist named Allan Frey discovered that irradiating a human head with microwaves could produce the sensation of sound—even in deaf ears, even from thousands of feet away. Playing with the frequency and intensity of the microwave beam could produce a range of different sensations in a person. In 2018, Frey told the New York Times that the Soviets took immediate notice of his work and flew him to Moscow, where they squired him around secret military facilities and asked him to give lectures about the effects of microwaves on the brain.

By now, this was no longer a novel occurrence, and CIA people had come to call it “getting hit.” One senior intelligence officer in EEMC, the Center Polymeropoulos used to run, had gotten hit twice while traveling under cover, first in Poland in the spring of 2019, then again in Tbilisi, Georgia, that fall. He, too, was diagnosed with occipital neuralgia and experienced symptoms similar to Polymeropoulos’s. (He declined to be interviewed for this article.)

According to these sources, the attacks were becoming increasingly daring: One of the CIA officials hit in Australia and Taiwan was among the agency’s five highest-ranking officials.

USA jahib üle ilma diplomaate ja CIA agente maha murdnud müstilise haiguse allikat.
Toimetas: Kadri Veermäe
Tsiteeri:
2016. aasta alguses hakkasid välismaale lähetatud USA diplomaadid ja CIA ametnikud langema veidra haiguse ohvriks, mille sümptomite hulka kuulusid peavalud, iiveldus, mälukaotus, pearinglus ning muud murettekitavad hädad, kirjutab väljaanne Foreign Policy. USA valitsus lubas toona välja uurida, mis ameeriklasi vaevab, ning rakendas selleks tööle terve armee uurijaid ja tippteadlasi. Neli aastat hiljem pole salapärane tõbi lahendust leidnud ja diplomaatide nurin on muutunud üha valjemaks. Väljaanne New York Times kirjutas hiljuti, et Hiinas, Kuubal ja Venemaal elavad ameeriklased kurdavad, et USA võimud varjavad probleemi tegelikku ulatust ja jätavad nemad sel moel kaitsetusse olukorda.

Veriste ninadega lapsed

USA välisministeeriumi heaks Hiinas töötanud Mark Lenzi perega hakkasid paari aasta eest juhtuma kummalised asjad. Lapsed ärkasid üles veriste ninadega, Mark ja tema abikaasa kannatasid aga üha rohkem pearingluse ja -valude ning uneprobleemide käes. Alguses arvas pere, et süüdi võib olla Guangzhou saastatud õhk, kuid sudu ei selgitanud äkilist mälukaotust. Ühel päeval avastas Mark, et tööriistade nimed ei tulegi enam meelde, pinguta, palju tahad.

Müstiline tõbi oli Hiinas esimesena tabanud USA kaubandusministeeriumi ametnikku Catherine Wernerit, kes elas juhtumisi Lenzi kõrvalkorteris. Naine kurtis kuude kaupa oksendamise, iivelduse, peavalude ja uimasuse üle, enne kui ta 2018. aprillis tagasi kodumaale lennutati. Ühe vilepuhuja kaebusest selgub, et USA välisministeerium asus alles siis tegutsema, kui tütart külastas Werneri ema, kes oli juhtumisi USA õhuvägede veteran. Südikas daam oli kaasa võtnud mõõturi, millega ta väidetavalt tuvastas tütre korteris erakordselt kõrge mikrolainekiirgus, kirjutab New York Times. Veidrad sümptomid ilmnesid ka Werneri emal ja naise kahel koeral, kes oksendasid verd ja keeldusid korteri nendesse nurkadesse minemast, kus naistel kõrvus pinisema hakkas.

Terve hulk kurtjaid

2018. aastal kurtsid sarnaseid tervisehädasid rohkem kui kümme Hiinas töötanud USA ametnikku koos peredega. Veelgi imelikumaks muudab juhtunu see, et kaks aastat varem oli sama toimunud Kuubas. Asukoha järgi said Kuuba haigestumised nimeks „Havanna sündroom". Nii Hiina kui ka Kuuba diplomaadid kannatasid peavalude, pearingluse, nägemishäirete ja mälukaotuse all.

Sarnase kogemuse osaliseks sai ka lühikeseks ajaks Venemaale sõitnud CIA luureametnik. 2017. aasta lõpul tabas Marc Polymeropoulost Moskvas Marriotti hotellis äkiline ja ebameeldiv tervisehäda. Polymeropoulus ärkas varahommikul üles kõikehõlmava iiveldustundega. Kõigepealt arvas mees, et on saanud toidumürgituse. Kuid kui ta üritas voodist tõusta, kukkus ta põrandale. Uuesti katsetades juhtus sama. Kõrvus tinises. „Mul oli tunne, nagu hakkaks samal ajal oksele ja pilti taskusse panema," meenutas ta väljaandes GQ sel kuul avaldatud loos. Hommikuks oli enesetunne paranenud, kuid kaks päeva enne Moskva külastamise lõppu kordus kõik uuesti. Polymeropoulus sõi koos kolleegidega Puškini restoranis õhtust, kuid äkki hakkas ruumi tema ümber pöörlema. Iiveldus tekkis hetkega ja sama kiirelt kattus mees higiga.

Piinavad peavalud

Polymeropoulusel õnnestus raskustega hotelli tagasi pöörduda, kuhu ta jäi kuni lennujaama minekuni. Kodumaal hakkas mehe pea mõne nädala pärast tugevalt valutama, lisaks naasid pööritus ja iiveldus ning pinin kõrvades. Arstid midagi kahtlast ei leidnud. Hiljem arenesid välja tugevad igapäevased peavalud, mis sundisid mehe lõpuks ametist lahkuma. Lõpuks diagnoosis üks eraneuroloog mehel närvikahjustusega seotud kuklanärvineuralgia.

CIA luurajatega seotud juhtumid on eelnevalt olnud suure saladuskatte all, kuid ka Kuuba puhul on teada, et vähemalt mõned haigestunud olid tegelikult CIA agendid. Ka kirjutas GQ kahest kõrgest CIA ametnikust, keda tabasid mullu sügisel kõigepealt Austraalia hotellis haigussümptomid ja kui nad lendasid edasi Taiwani, siis ka seal. Lisaks sai üks CIA luureametnik 2019. aasta kevadel Poolas haigushoo ja samal sügisel Thbilisis. Ka tema hilisemaks diagnoosiks kujunes kuklanärvineuralgia.

GQ-ga rääkinud allikate sõnul muutusid rünnakud üha jultunumaks: Austraalis ja Taiwani puhul kuulus väidetav sihtmärk CIA esiviisiku hulka.

Mobiiltelefoni liikumisandmete paljastused

Kõige veenvamad tõendid pärinevad avalikult kättesaadavate andmete hulgast. Nagu teada, salvestavad mobiiltelefonid inimeste liikumist ja antud infot koguvad ettevõtted müüvad seda. CIA uurijad suutsid liikumisandmete põhjal tuletada arvatavate Vene agentide asukoha ja paigutada nad CIA omade vahetusse füüsilisse lähedusse ajal, mil viimaseid rünnati Poolas, Gruusias, Taiwanil ja Austraalias. Iga juhtumi puhul olid FSB agentideks peetavad isikud ameeriklaste läheduses ja kahel korral viibisid nad andmete järgi samas hotellis, kus USA luureametnikel halb hakkas. Ajakirja järgi tuvastas CIA uurimine, et mitmel juhul rünnati agente mikrolaineseadeldisega, mis võib kaasa tuua tõsise peapõrutusega sarnaneva ajukahjustuse.

Mikrolainekiirgust peetakse ka Kuuba diplomaatide hädade põhjuseks, kuid Havanna sündroomi puhul on välja pakutud teisi seletusi. Leidub neid, kes väidavad, et tegu on psühholoogilise tõvega, mis tabas stressirohkes keskkonnas töötavaid välisesinduste ametnikke. Ka on arvatud, et imelikke tervisehädasid võisid tekitada hoopis pestitsiidid.

USA võimud pole selgelt välja öelnud, kui palju ameeriklasi on aastate jooksul haigestunud. Teada on, et Pennsylvania ajuvigastuste keskuses on vastuvõtul või ravil käinud 44 Kuubal ja 15 Hiinas elanud ameeriklast. Keskuse arstid lükkasid otsustavalt ümber mõtte, nagu oleks patsientide hädad võinud alguse saada psühholoogilisest stressist ja rõhutasid, et neil olid välise allika tekitatud ajuvigastused.

Kas tõesti Venemaa?

Süüdlast otsides on paljud silmad pöördunud Moskva poole, sest Venemaa puhul poleks ajuvigastusi põhjustavate relvade kasutamises midagi uut ega üllatavat. Foreign Policy kirjutab, et ka USA sõjavägi oma arendanud välja oma relvaprototüübid, millega saab sihtmärkidele anda mittesurmavaid laenguid. Kuid probleem on selles, et USA süsteem on sama suur kui veoauto, lisaks võtab selle käimasaamine tunde – Havannas oleks selline asi mõne diplomaadi korteri ees lootusetult silmatorkav.

USA riiklik julgeolekuagentuur (NSA) teatas ühe 2014. aasta dokumendi järgi, et neil on luureandmeid selle kohta, et nimetamata jäänud vaenulik riik kasutab võimsaid mikrolainerelvi sihtmärkide eluruumides, põhjustades sellega närvisüsteemile kahju. Riigi nimi jäi saladuseks, kuid dokumenti näinud allikate sõnul oli tegu Venemaaga.

Moskva peab süüdistusi naeruväärseks

Moskva ise on süüdistused ümber lükanud. Vene välisministeeriumi kõneisik Maria Zahharova teatel on kõik vihjed Venemaa seotusele absurdsed ja veidrad. Washingtoni Vene saatkonna esindaja lisas omalt poolt juurde, et väidetavate Havanna rünnakute näol oli tegu tõenäoliselt massihüsteeriaga.

Hiinas haigushooge üle elama pidanud Lenzi väitel teavad USA tippametnikud täpselt, millise riigiga tegu on. Lenzi täpsustas, et antud maa pole Hiina ega Kuuba, vaid riik, millega USA välisminister ja president ei taha vastasseisu sattuda. New York Timesi info kohaselt tahavad USA võimud enne Moskva poole näpuga näitamist aga rohkem tõendeid näha.


Tsiteeri:
USA välisministeerium tellis möödunud kevadel teaduste akadeemialt uuringu, kuhu kaasati neurolooge, elektrotehnika eksperte, toksikolooge ja epidemiolooge. Akadeemia andis selle aasta augustis uuringu tulemused välisministeeriumile üle, kuid kongressi ega avalikkuse kätte pole need jõudnud.

„See on minu ja mu kolleegide jaoks äärmiselt frustreeriv, mõnes mõttes masendav ja kindlasti üllatav," kommenteeris komisjoni juhtinud Stanfordi ülikooli meditsiiniprofessor David Relman. Relman ei saa uuringu sisu täpsemalt kommenteerida, kuid tema sõnul tuvastas teadlaste meeskond diplomaatide haigestumiste puhul neli võimalikku põhjust, mille hulgast üks on kõige tõenäolisem.

USA teadlased kinnitavad tõenäolist suunatud mikrolainekiirgust
Tsiteeri:
USA Teaduste Akadeemia komitee tuvastas USA diplomaate Kuubal tabanud ootamatu haiguse põhjusena väga tõenäoliselt suunatud mikrolaine kiirguse.

USA välisministeeriumi tellitud uuring avaldati laupäeval.

Esimesed juhtumid, kui diplomaadid Havannas hakkasid ootamatult tundma peavalu, pööritust ja kognitiivseid häireid, leidsid aset 2016. aasta lõpus.

Analüüsis väljatoodud põhjused on tõenäolisemad kui varem välja pakutud variandid nagu troopilised haigused või psühholoogilised häired. Uurimustöös ei toodud täpselt välja kiirguse lähtepunkti, kuid varem leidis sarnaseid juhtumeid aset Nõukogude Liidus.

Mitte kõik kannatanud ei teatanud samasugustest sümptomitest ja Teaduste Akadeemial polnud ligipääsu varasematele uuringutele selliste haiguste kohta. Mõned neist on salastatud.

«Komitee peab neid leide küllaltki murettekitavaks, kuna ühest küljest on võimalik suunatud, pulseeriv raadiosagedusel energia kui mehhanism, kuid ka sellepärast, et see põhjustas mõnele isikule tõsist kannatust ja nõrkust,» ütles komitee esimees David Relman.

Neid tervisehäireid kogesid üle kahekümne ameeriklase, kes olid seotud USA saatkonnaga Kuubas, samuti kanadalased ja USA konsulaadi personal Hiinas Guanghzhous 2017. aasta alguses.

Mikrolainekiirgus tekitab kirjeldatud sümptomeid küll, see mõte käis mul kohe alguses peast läbi (*. Aga kui juba "hulk teadlasi uurib salapärast nähtust", siis mõtlesin, et mida ma siin ikka targutan.

Kes vene kroonus radari peal teeninud, teab, kui ohtlik oli töötava radari ette jääda. Rämedad peavalud olid pikaks ajaks garanteeritud ning väiksema eluka nagu linnu või kassi võis antenni ees sõna otseses mõttes ära küpsetada nagu mikrolaineahjus.

What are the possible health effects of radar?
[...]
Thermal effects: RF fields have been studied in animals, including primates. The earliest signs of an adverse health consequence, found in animals as the level of RF fields increased, include reduced endurance, aversion of the field and decreased ability to perform mental tasks. These studies also suggest adverse effects may occur in humans subjected to whole body or localized exposure to RF fields sufficient to increase tissue temperatures by greater than 1°C. Possible effects include the induction of eye cataracts, and various physiological and thermoregulatory responses as body temperature increases. These effects are well established and form the scientific basis for restricting occupational and public exposure to RF fields.
[...]
Pulsed RF fields: Exposure to very intense pulsed RF fields, similar to those used by radar systems, has been reported to suppress the startle response and evoke body movements in conscious mice. In addition, people with normal hearing have perceived pulse RF fields with frequencies between about 200 MHz and 6.5 GHz. This is called the microwave hearing effect. The sound has been variously described as a buzzing, clicking, hissing or popping sound, depending on the RF pulsing characteristics. Prolonged or repeated exposure may be stressful and should be avoided where possible.


Tuletan meelde varasematest artiklitest läbi jooksnud kirjeldusi, mis klapivad eeltoodud sümptomitega:

Tsiteeri:
Ühed ärkasid öösel toas kõlanud kahtlase sirina peale, mille allikat nad ei leidnud. Teised kuulsid imelikku madalat suminat või midagi, mis meenutas metalli kriipimist. Mõni tundis, nagu oleks õhus midagi kuulda, kuigi teised ruumis olijad seda ei märganud. Heli kadus, kui seda kuulnud isik astus paar meetrit eemale.

Kõigil, kes olid midagi sellist kogenud, tekkisid varsti tervisehäired. Nad kaotasid nägemise või kuulmise, tundsid iiveldust ja peapööritust. Mõnel kannatanul tekkisid mäluprobleemid ja ta ei suutnud meenutada üht või teist tavalist sõna.

Ma ei imestaks, kui tuleks välja, et KGB oleks sellega juba ammu tegelenud. Suurepärane vahend dissidentide kiusamiseks - kui pöördub arstile, siis saaks hulluks tembeldada.

Ei tea mis sellise relva "laskekaugus" on? Võimsust suurendades ei suurene ju mitte vaid kaugus vaid ka efekt. Ilmselt aga efekti suurendamine ei ole soovitud kui tahetakse "vaenlast" lihtsalt õrnalt mõjutada?
