Since 2016, a series of United States diplomats have mysteriously began suffering unexplained losses of hearing and other neurological issues while visiting Cuba, which prompted doctors to look into possible causes. Their findings were recently released, and they indicate a huge problem with the Cuban government.
A U.S. doctor who evaluated American and Canadian diplomats who had visited Havana reported that some of them had been diagnosed with “mild traumatic brain injury” and “likely damage to the central nervous system,” according to CBS News.
Officials have speculated that the injured diplomats were targets of a “sonic attack,” in which they were exposed to an advanced device that operated outside the range of audible sound and had been deployed either inside or outside their residences, probably in late 2016.
The homes where the attacks occurred were provided to the diplomats by the Cuban government, prompting tough responses from U.S. officials.
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called on Cuba to investigate the attacks, according to Townhall.
“We hold the Cuban authorities responsible for finding out who is carrying out these health attacks on not just our diplomats but, as you’ve seen now, there are other cases with other diplomats involved,” Tillerson said.
In May, two Cuban diplomats were expelled from the nation’s embassy in Washington, D.C. as reports of the sonic attacks surfaced, and many diplomats had to leave the island country due to their severe symptoms.
Of course, Cuba has denied any wrongdoing, though many are still leery of the communist government — a government which, until two years ago, did not have diplomatic relations with the U.S.
In addition to the health attacks, American diplomats also have been the victims of vandalism, round-the-clock surveillance and home break-ins, according to Newsmax.
This is a perfect example of why conservatives were hesitant to normalize relations with Cuba. President Barack Obama, however, cared more about being “politically correct” and his global popularity than he did about the safety of Americans and the consequences of having a relationship with a country that has routinely violated its own citizens’ human rights.
Now that Obama is long gone from office, and the Cuban communist government appears to be showing its true colors again, the United States and Cuba are likely to resume their Cold War relationship. And frankly, it’s the only relationship the Castro regime deserves to have with the United States — until the Castros are long gone, too.
We’re praying for all those affected by these mysterious attacks in Cuba, and we hope that our government will hold the Castro regime accountable for their injuries.
