There are media reports of a pair of possible directed energy attacks in the United States, one of which occurred near the White House. Several federal agencies are reportedly investigating the potential directed microwave energy that likely caused a mysterious illness in a National Security Council official.
CNN reported there was a suspected directed energy attack last November near the Ellipse, the oval-shaped park between the Mall and the south side of the White House. A National Security Council official allegedly became ill during the purported energy attack.
There was another possible directed energy attack in 2019 in a Virginia suburb.
"According to three sources familiar with the incident, a White House staffer was hit while walking her dog in Arlington, Virginia," GQ reported last October. "Her dog started seizing up. Then she felt it too: a high-pitched ringing in her ears, an intense headache, and a tingling on the side of her face."
The two possible directed energy attacks on U.S. soil appear similar to incidents American personnel experienced in Cuba, China, and Russia. U.S. diplomatic and intelligence personnel first reported suffering from a mysterious illness while stationed in Cuba, which has been named a "Havana syndrome."
Overall, there are as many as 40 U.S. employees who may have suffered from unexplained neurological problems linked to possible directed energy attacks.
"Many reported hearing a loud sound and feeling pressure in their heads, and then experienced dizziness, unsteady gait and visual disturbances," NBC News reported. "Many suffered longstanding, debilitating effects."
The National Academies of Sciences released a report on the strange sickness last year:
For some of these patients, their case began with the sudden onset of a loud noise, perceived to have directional features, and accompanied by pain in one or both ears or across a broad region of the head, and in some cases, a sensation of head pressure or vibration, dizziness, followed in some cases by tinnitus, visual problems, vertigo, and cognitive difficulties. Other personnel attached to the U.S. Consulate in Guangzhou, China, reported similar symptoms and signs to varying degrees, beginning in the following year. As of June 2020, many of these personnel continue to suffer from these and/or other health problems. that cites medical evidence to support the long-held conviction of American intelligence officials.
The State Department-sponsored study stated that the mysterious illness is likely the result of "directed, pulsed radiofrequency energy." Authorities are not certain if these incidents were coordinated attacks and are not sure of who is behind them.
Marc Polymeropoulos, a former senior CIA official, believes he was the victim of a directed energy attack while he was in Russia in 2017.
"The feeling of nausea was overwhelming. Food poisoning, he thought, and decided to head for the bathroom," GQ reported last year. "But when he tried to get out of bed, he fell over. He tried to stand up and fell again. It was the early morning hours of December 5, 2017, and his Moscow hotel room was spinning around him. His ears were ringing. He felt, he recalled, "like I was going to both throw up and pass out at the same time."
"It is absolutely critical that we find out who did this," Polymeropoulos told Politico. "The idea of dismissing it outright is just not acceptable anymore."
Polymeropoulos suffered through three years of constant headaches, which forced him to retire from the CIA.
"More importantly, my life as a husband and a father suffered, as I was dealing with incessant chronic pain – the severity of which I hid from most of my friends and acquaintances – which caused me mounting physical and emotional distress," he wrote last month.
Last week, the Pentagon warned lawmakers about the growing threat of American troops stationed in the Middle East and South America being targeted by directed energy attacks, according to Politico.
"The health and well being of American public services is a paramount priority for the Biden administration," White House spokesperson Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters aboard Air Force One on Thursday. "We cannot provide or confirm specific details."
