BREAKING: U.S. Officials At Embassy In Colombia Hit With Havana Syndrome, Including One Child

 WASHINGTON, DC - OCTOBER 08: U.S. President Joe Biden delivers remarks on the September jobs numbers in the South Court Auditorium in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building on October 08, 2021 in Washington, DC. According to the U.S. Labor Department, the economy added a disappointing 194,000 jobs in September as the COVID-19 Delta variant negatively impacted the usual annual hiring patterns.

Several U.S. officials at the Embassy in Colombia have reportedly been hit with Havana Syndrome, a mysterious neurological illness that officials believe is the result of attack by a foreign adversary using pulsed microwave energy, which comes just days before Secretary of State Antony Blinken is expected to visit the country.

“One U.S. official said there were at least two known cases, both American citizens, but several more are thought to have been affected,” The Wall Street Journal reported. “This official said that at least one family was flown out of the country for treatment and concerns have grown ‘more serious’ in recent days.”“There was definitely a family including a minor hit,” a source familiar with the matter told The Journal. “Adults sign up for what they sign up for and the risks that come with it….Targeting or even incidentally hitting kids should be a hard red line.”

U.S. officials from Republican and Democrat administrations believe that Russia is likely responsible for the attacks, which were first reported in 2016 in Havana, Cuba.
