More than 20 U.S. diplomats and embassy personnel suffered serious injuries after being victimized by mysterious clandestine attacks while stationed in Cuba. The apartheid Castro dictatorship not only disavows any involvement in the attacks, but has also gone so far as to claim they never took place and the U.S. government is lying about the multiple incidents.
Supporters of the Cuban communist regime in the U.S. and the world have also chimed in to defend the apartheid dictatorship. They have tried to find anything other than the most obvious suspect — the Castro dictatorship — to blame the injuries on in a desperate and despicable attempt to insulate the corrupt Cuban regime from criticism. They have blamed the attacks on mass hysteria and most recently, on “stress.” Unfortunately, the latest evidence revealed regarding the attacks neither supports the Cuban dictatorship’s claims nor those made by its defenders.
The Associated Press is reporting that doctors who are examining the victims of these attacks in Cuba have found brain abnormalities in the form of damage done to white matter tracts in the brain. There is definite proof now that whatever weapon was used on U.S. diplomats in Cuba, it caused serious damage to the brains of its victims. This is a far cry from “mass hysteria” or “stress” explanation regime defenders would like us to believe and reaffirms that the most likely suspect behind these attacks is the Castro dictatorship.
Doctors identify brain abnormalities in Cuba attack patients
WASHINGTON (AP) — Doctors treating the U.S. Embassy victims of mysterious, invisible attacks in Cuba have discovered brain abnormalities as they search for clues to explain the hearing, vision, balance and memory damage, The Associated Press has learned.
It’s the most specific finding to date about physical damage, showing that whatever it was that harmed the Americans, it led to perceptible changes in their brains. The finding is also one of several factors fueling growing skepticism that some kind of sonic weapon was involved.
Medical testing has revealed the embassy workers developed changes to the white matter tracts that let different parts of the brain communicate, several U.S. officials said, describing a growing consensus held by university and government physicians researching the attacks. White matter acts like information highways between brain cells.
Loud, mysterious sounds followed by hearing loss and ear-ringing had led investigators to suspect “sonic attacks.” But officials are now carefully avoiding that term. The sounds may have been the byproduct of something else that caused damage, said three U.S. officials briefed on the investigation. They weren’t authorized to discuss it publicly and demanded anonymity.
Physicians, FBI investigators and U.S. intelligence agencies have spent months trying to piece together the puzzle in Havana, where the U.S. says 24 U.S. government officials and spouses fell ill starting last year in homes and later in some hotels. The United States refers to “specific attacks” but says it doesn’t know who’s behind them. A few Canadian Embassy staffers also got sick.
Doctors still don’t know how victims ended up with the white matter changes, nor how exactly those changes might relate to their symptoms. U.S. officials wouldn’t say whether the changes were found in all 24 patients.
But acoustic waves have never been shown to alter the brain’s white matter tracts, said Elisa Konofagou, a biomedical engineering professor at Columbia University who is not involved in the government’s investigation.
“I would be very surprised,” Konofagou said, adding that ultrasound in the brain is used frequently in modern medicine. “We never see white matter tract problems.”
Cuba has adamantly denied involvement, and calls the Trump administration’s claims that U.S. workers were attacked “deliberate lies.” The new medical details may help the U.S. counter Havana’s complaint that Washington hasn’t presented any evidence.
