The Strange Case of American Diplomats in Cuba

The Strange Case of American Diplomats in Cuba: As the Mystery Deepens, So Do Divisions in Washington

On the night of May 27, a young woman newly assigned to the United States Embassy in Havana heard a disturbing noise at her home in the city’s Playa neighborhood. As she had been instructed, she telephoned an embassy security officer, who hurried over to investigate. He heard something, too.

Both embassy employees were soon medevaced out of Cuba. At the University of Pennsylvania medical school’s Center for Brain Injury and Repair, they were diagnosed with concussionlike symptoms similar to those found in 2017 among 24 Americans and a smaller group of Canadians, all of whom had also served in Cuba.

The new Havana cases—along with what Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called the “very similar and entirely consistent” medical problems of a young consular official in China—stoked fears that American envoys were now being targeted by a mysterious, high-tech enemy acting on a global scale.

Yet more than a year after the CIA secretly shut down its Havana station and the State Department withdrew most of its diplomats from Cuba in response to the incidents there, escalating a bitter new cold war between the two countries, U.S. investigators still have no clear idea who or what made the Americans sick.
