The Mysterious Attacks

"You can buy transducers on the Internet that emit these frequencies. Anybody with a bit of engineering background could put one together." 
"That’s a little harder for me to believe [ultrasonic sound’s potential to cause permanent brain damage]. The sound would have to enter the brain tissue itself, but if you’ve ever had an ultrasound scan you’ll know they put gel on. If there’s even a tiny bit of air between the sound and your body it doesn’t get through."
Robin Cleveland, professor of engineering science, University of Oxford

The United States issued an ominous warning to Americans on Friday to stay away from Cuba and ordered home more than half the U.S. diplomatic corps, acknowledging neither the Cubans nor America's FBI can figure out who or what is responsible for months of mysterious health ailments.

"[It is possible, particularly] if the diplomats share meals together, it is a distinct possibility that somebody poisoned their food."
"Does chemical poisoning explain all the known symptoms, even for those victims who heard noises in the middle of the night?"
"Possibly. Chemical solvents can cause nerve damage, which can manifest in different ways. With auditory nerve damage, some people might experience ringing (tinnitus), and others might find certain noise frequencies excruciatingly intolerable while others barely notice."
Jamie Wells, Director of Medicine, American Council on Science and Health and microbiologist Alex Berezow
Diplomats, assigned to represent their countries' best interests are delegated to live and work in Embassies in foreign nations. Those embassies and the living arrangements of the diplomats are held to be the de facto territory of the nations they represent, as distinct of the property of the nations they are located within. As such, they are in theory and according to convention protecting any nation's diplomatic staff, untouchable. Yet both Canadian and American diplomats posted to Cuba have reported verifiable illnesses whose cause has been immune to detection.

Diplomats who suffer inexplicable symptoms that cannot be attributed to any discernible cause, yet the symptoms are there, and some who are affected by them, are quite serious in nature, making the afflicted extremely ill and threatening their health in ways that cannot be fully understood. Symptoms ranging from hearing loss and vertigo, to nausea and concussions where people are left reeling from the effects, unable to concentrate and even jog their memories to bring up words common to their vocabularies.

Some of the affected claim to have felt vibrations or having been exposed to loud noises that could be heard in portions of a room but not other areas, while other people present in that same room remain unaffected, hearing and feeling nothing untoward. Canadian and American diplomats have been affected by these truly mysterious events. Those who have suffered serious repercussions have left Cuba for treatment in Canada and the United States for conditions whose causes remain unknown despite all available means of investigation.

Finally, though Canada has decided for the time being to do nothing about their diplomats and their mission in Cuba, the United States has decided to return all designated non-essential personnel from Havana and at the same time travel advisories have gone out to all Americans against visiting the country for safety reasons until such time as investigators can put a reason to these strange occurrences. Perplexedly strange, there are theories but none that can be proven. Of the most apt, the sonic theory of sound attacks is particularly favoured.

In light of the fact that some of the people affected report hearing losses following strange and loud acoustic events and vibrations, conceivably related to ultrasonic frequencies, that are notably high-pitched, which have somehow been harnessed and directed for possibly malicious purposes. As in the case of puzzles steeped deep in mysteries, high frequency sound has no capacity to travel through barriers such as a wall or even something slighter, like a curtain.

Equally or perhaps even more problematical is the theory of ultra-sonic sound causing permanent brain damage, as reflected by some Cuban diplomats themselves having been diagnosed with brain injury of mild traumatic effect. Electromagnetic waves, on one hand are readily directed, just as a laser is controlled, to travel through walls and their presence unknown. Yet if they were to be used the diplomats would report having experienced burning sensations since they heat body tissue in causing physical damage..

Mercury and lead, on the other hand, are elements known to be harmful to humans; could be the cause of hearing and brain damage. Other types of industrial solvents could also fit the bill. But nothing as yet has been revealed that might conceivably solve this strange dilemma. Since there is no possible benefit to Cuba in afflicting diplomats of countries whose cooperation with the communist state is of use to it, the finger of suspicion points not at Cuba but to other entities dissatisfied with any entente between Cuba and the U.S.
