There's been more information to come out about those mysterious Cuban embassy "sonic" weapons attacks, and this one has some disturbing high octane speculative implications. According to this article from Zero Hedge, the victims of these attacks were all American intelligence "assets," i.e., spies(article shared by Mr. J.C.):
Now, the reader will have noted that I placed this blog under "mind control", and we'll get back to this problem in a moment, form it relates directly to today's high octane speculation.
The article makes a number of assertions, but I want to focus on three of these:
1) The goal of the attacks was to disrupt Cuban-American relations:
If disrupting US-Cuba relations was the attack’s intent, then they have clearly succeeded: The US quietly expelled two Cuban diplomats in August. And by withdrawing most of its embassy personnel and warning travelers to stay away from the island, the US is signaling a chill in travel and trade that could prevent Cubans from visiting family members in the US. The reduction in embassy staff means visa processing has been suspended indefinitely.
As I've indicated in previous blogs, I concur with this assessment. The problem this raises, however, is that neither Cuba nor the USA is therefore directly behind the attacks. If this is the motivation, then it has to come from some other nation or group - including rogue groups within Cuban or American intelligence - that does not want relations to improve.
2) The USA does not know what type of weapon is involved:
So far, the US has been unable to identify the weapon used in the attacks. Initially, the State Department gave diplomats the option of leaving Havana, but many, including some of the attack victims, opted to remain.
This, I think, is laughable, given the many patents one can examine for precisely this type of weapon or "mind manipulation" technology. One doesn't have to dig very far. What I suspect is the actual case is that the US authorities know good and well what sort of technology it is. The problem rather is that disclosing the nature of it would (1) admit its existence, which the US government does not want to do, for that would open up a whole can of worms it doesn't want opened up (e.g., a re-trial of convicted Robert Kennedy murderer Sirhan Sirhan, whose case shows all the signs of mind manipulation and has all the hallmarks of being a classic "Manchurian Candidate"); and (2) possibly indicating who the real attackers are, which again, the US authorities would be loathe to do, because it would admit a rogue element in Cuba and/or America is doing it, or that some other actor is involved that it doesn't want to confront directly (China or Russia), or that it does not want to admit exists (an extra-territorial group).
Which brings us to the kernel of the Zero Hedge article and the third problem:
3) The attacks were predominantly against American intelligence assets:
Just days after the Associated Press reported that the State Department planned to withdraw most of its personnel from the Cuban embassy in Havana, the wire service is returning with another revelatory scoop about the mysterious “sonic attacks” that have caused injuries ranging from minor to life-threatening in 21 embassy personnel: Many of the diplomats targeted were US spies, partly explaining the State Department's reluctance to discuss the attacks.Frightening attacks on U.S. personnel in Havana struck the heart of America’s spy network in Cuba, with intelligence operatives among the first and most severely affected victims, The Associated Press has learned.
It wasn’t until U.S. spies, posted to the embassy under diplomatic cover, reported hearing bizarre sounds and experiencing even stranger physical effects that the United States realized something was wrong, individuals familiar with the situation said.
However, the AP’s government sources refused to confirm a timeline for the attacks, or provide other basic details, underscoring the sensitivity of the ongoing investigation.
These allegations are much more problematic, for if true, then it means that whoever is targeting American personnel in Cuba, this entity has very good intelligence on just who American's intelligence assets in Cuba really are. And this has to have them burning the midnight oil in the bowels of the American national security apparatus, for this information, ultimately, could only come into the possession of this entity by one of three means: cyber-warfare, i.e., hacking into the "NOC lists" of American intelligence agencies, or through a highly placed mole or moles in those agencies, or some combination of both. This is, of course, the old James Angleton nightmare, who literally spent most of his late career turning the Central Intelligence Agency inside out and upside down looking for a Soviet mole he believed was there. The problem in this instance is that there are any number of players capable either of hacking into, or placing moles into, America's intelligence apparatus: Britain, France, Germany, Israel, Russia... you name it, the list is almost endless. So in other words, there is now a counter-intelligence analysis taking place:
(1) Who is responsible for the attacks on American spies?
(2) How did they even learn who they were?
(3) What is to be done about it?
The real question now is who? I have my suspicions (and they're not the ones one might think), but I'd like to hear from you about who you think it is.
See you on the flip side...
