Back to the crickets: Cuban dictator Raul Castro says ‘no evidence’ of attacks on U.S. diplomats

Looks like Cuban dictator Raul Castro is on his way back to the “crickets” canard to fend off blame for the attacks and injuries suffered by American diplomats in Cuba. In a speech yesterday, the totalitarian dictator claimed there was “no evidence” of any attacks.

When the details of the attacks in Havana became public, the Castro regime came out and claimed the strange and unnatural sounds the victims heard that caused them severe headaches and nausea were nothing more than crickets. It was a ludicrous and laughable explanation worthy of intense mockery and ridicule. No serious person bought it, so the Castro regime shelved the defense.

But it appears the U.S. investigation into the attacks is apparently getting too close to the Cuban dictatorship. Close enough that the Castro dictatorship is pulling out the ludicrous and ridiculous claims and explanations once again.

Don’t be surprised if when the “cricket” excuse reemerges, it’s now “alien crickets” from Mars that escaped from a secret CIA laboratory on the U.S. naval base in Guantanamo.

Former Cuban President Raul Castro said on Thursday that there is no evidence of a “sonic war” against US diplomats on the communist island.

“Since last August, under the pretext of health effects on its diplomats, in what is called by some a ‘sonic war,’ the origin of which nobody has been able to explain or prove, … bilateral links with the United States have deteriorated,” Castro said.

The former leader referred to the subject during his remarks at Thursday’s ceremony in the eastern city of Santiago de Cuba marking National Rebellion Day.

The holiday commemorates the first armed action led by Fidel Castro (1926-2016) against the Fulgencio Batista regime, the failed July 26, 1953, attack on the Moncada Barracks in Santiago de Cuba.

In his more-than-40-minute speech, Castro mentioned relations with the US, Havana’s historical enemy with which diplomatic relations were reestablished in 2015, and rejected accusations by Washington about the mysterious health incidents suffered by 26 US diplomatic officials in the Cuban capital.

The origin of the health issues has been under investigation for months, albeit with no concrete results.
