Anonymous sources in State Dept. claim Castro dictatorship not behind ‘acoustic attacks’ on U.S. diplomats in Cuba

In an era plagued with dubious and anonymous sources making fantastical claims, one would think journalists would be wary of publishing reports that defy logic and challenge the obvious. Then again, this is the era of “Fake News.”

In a report published yesterday, McClatchy’s D.C. News Bureau declared that the U.S. does not believe that Cuba’s corrupt Castro dictatorship was behind the “acoustic attacks” on U.S. diplomats in Cuba that so far has injured 25 Americans stationed on the island. In spite of the fact Castro regime agents have vandalized the vehicles of U.S. diplomats in Cuba and even poisoned their pets in the past, the report claims that despite the decades-long history of harassment, there is no reason to believe the Cuban government is behind the attacks.

Naturally, the report and claim is based on anonymous sources within the State Department. And we all know how reliable those types of reports have been in the past.

Sources would not say who U.S. intelligence believes is responsible.

The Trump administration will soon begin a major withdrawal of staff from the U.S. embassy in Havana after seeing the number of Americans affected by this “sonic device” rise to 25 from 21. While the first cases were reported months ago, some have surfaced in just the last several weeks, according to two sources.
