American Diplomats in Cuba Injured

Aug 11, 2017

Committees in the House and Senate are looking into reports of incidents that diplomats in Cuba became ill and suffered hearing loss. American diplomats returned to the U.S. to receive treatment. Canadian diplomats also lost hearing and were treated in Canada. Speculation is that a covert sonic device were responsible for the issues. The incidents occurred in 2016 during the Obama Administration. The committees are trying to understand why the Obama and Trump Administrations stayed silent. President Trump expelled two Cuban diplomats from the Cuban embassy in May in response to actions taken against American diplomats in Cuba. There is an active investigation that is ongoing to understand what happened.
