One Year Ago — HAVANA SYNDROME — The US National Academy of Sciences Report: Findings & Press Review

“The committee felt that many of the distinctive and acute signs, symptoms and observations reported by government employees are consistent with the effects of directed, pulsed radio frequency (Microwave) energy.” 

An Assessment of Illness in U.S. Government Employees and Their Families at Overseas Embassies

National Academies of Sciences

October 27 2020 — Last spring, the US State Department requested the National Academy of Sciences to undertake a full review of the Havana Syndrome. The committee submitted its report to the State Department in early August. So far, the report has not been released to lawmakers. Why on Earth not? I can tell you this much. The National Academy of Sciences Committee has taken very seriously the hypothesis suggested by this blogger. UPDATE — The NAS report was finally released on December 5 2020.

On December 6 2007, Pierre Lecompte, a former official with the Communications Security Establishment (CSE), testified that such report never existed. Follow us on Twitter: @INTEL_TODAY

On This Day — Did Richard Nixon Frame Alger Hiss? (December 6 1948 – The Pumpkin Papers)

“As to whether Nixon would actually have gone as far as to frame Hiss, the later record includes disquieting instances of forgery or planting false information.”

Anthony Summers — The Arrogance of Power: The Secret World of Richard Nixon

December 6 2021 — Ever since Alger Hiss’s perjury prosecution in 1949-1950, it has become a virtual consensus that “the Baltimore documents… were evidence of betrayal of U.S. diplomatic information to a foreign power, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.” But were these papers really so damning? Were they actually genuine? And is the case really closed as the CIA claims?  One thing is certain. The case remains controversial, important and relevant to current issues.

45 Years Ago — Bob Marley Assassination Attempt (December 3 1976) — Was the CIA involved? [Conspiracy Theories vs Actual Conspiracies]

“I WOULD LIKE TO CALL THE ATTENTION OF THE JAMAICAN PRESS AND PEOPLE TO THE FACT THAT THE CURRENT CIA CHIEF OF STATION HERE [NORMAN DESCOTEAUX], AND TWO OF THE OPERATIONS OFFICERS ARRIVED IN KINGSTON DURING THE MIDDLE AND LATTER PART OF LAST YEAR PRIOR TO THE INITIATION OF VIOLENCE.”

AGEE PRESS RELEASE (September 17 1976)

Bob Marley unite two warring factions JLP and PNP at his 1978 One Love Peace Concert

December 3 2020 —  On December 3, 1976, two days before the Smile Jamaica concert, seven men with guns raided Marley’s house at 56 Hope Road around 8.30 pm. Marley’s wife, Rita, was shot in the head. The gunmen shot Marley in the chest and arm. His manager, Don Taylor, was shot in the legs and torso. Astonishingly, there were no fatalities. Over the years, many have alleged that the CIA was behind the assassination plot. Follow us on Twitter: @INTEL_TODAY

On This Day — Lockerbie : “The Helsinki Warning” (December 5 1988)

“And he comes in early the next morning, 6 o’clock the next morning, and there is, obviously, confusion and concern. And he is asked to do a number of things. And he is asked to work on Weber’s desk with his computer. And he looks down and sees the Helsinki warning on Weber’s desk. And he goes crazy. And he says what is this?

And Weber says: Oh, my God, don’t worry, don’t worry, it’s nothing, forget it.

So Koch says, how can I forget it? This is a warning of a potential bomb. It is my job.

Just forget it. Be quiet or you will get in trouble.”

Washington Post — “Helsinki Warning: Timely or Buried?”

December 5 2021 — On December 5, 1988, a man speaking with an Arabic accent telephoned the US Embassy in Helsinki, Finland. The informant said that a Pan Am flight from Frankfurt to the United States would be blown up within the next two weeks. On December 21, 1988, Pan Am 103 exploded over Lockerbie. Pan Am 103A — its feeder flight — originated from Frankfurt. The warning was dismissed as a hoax.

The FBI concluded that the ‘culprit’ had done it to impress his girlfriend. Actually, the suspect was never indicted because sufficient evidence could not be assembled. If there was not enough evidence to indict, let alone convict, Samra Mahayou for the hoax, where was the evidence to dismiss the warning as one? Follow us on Twitter: @Intel_Today

KRYPTOS — More Lies from the New York Times and C.I.A. [UPDATE — How Liars Create the ‘IQLUSION of TRUTH’]

“Why does the message of Kryptos contain intentional misspellings?”

Nicole Daniels — New York Times (April 6 2020)

“Thanks to @nytimes for featuring the Kryptos sculpture in Monday’s Lesson of the Day.”

CIA — Twitter (April 8 2020)

April 9 2020  — On Monday, the New York Times ran a piece on KRYPTOS. Sure enough, the US newspaper of record had to lie about an infamous misspelling in one of the decoded sections of KRYPTOS. Once upon a times, I would not have really cared about such lie. But in these times of hardship, any lie — small lie or big lie — is one lie too many. When will these clowns ever understand that you do not get any better at doing your job by lying about your past mistakes? This is wrong. Follow us on TWITTER: @INTEL_TODAY

On This Day — Profumo Affair Christine Keeler Has Died (December 4 2017)

“However I dress it up, I was a spy and I am not proud of it.”

Christine Keeler

Lewis Morley’s 1963 portrait of Christine Keeler became an iconic image of the cold war. This picture is one of the most famous and most imitated photographs ever published. Joanne Whalley-Kilmer recreated the pose for the theatrical release poster.

December 4 2021 — On December 4 2017, Christine Keeler, the model embroiled in the 1963 Profumo affair, died aged 75. The Profumo affair was a very British scandal which uncovered a secret world of sex, horse-play, drinking orgies and spying, in high places, in which Ms Keeler shared her favours with Mr Profumo, and Commander Eugene Ivanov, the Soviet assistant naval attaché in London. The crisis forced John Profumo to quit his job as war secretary and ultimately contributed to the downfall of the Tory government the following year. Follow us on Twitter: @INTEL_TODAY

On This Day — Pablo Escobar is killed in Medellin (December 2 1993) [UPDATE : Colombia Growing Record Amounts Of Coca]

“What we’ve learned is that if you look at history what happened with the Medellin Cartel after we took them down, Cali Cartel got stronger, right? Then we take them down, and North Valle Cartel takes over. We’re taking down cartels, and another cartel is born.”

Javier Pena — Former DEA officer

Fernando Botero’s portrayal of Pablo Escobar’s death

Brussels, Den of Spies — Why are there no reported cases of Havana Syndrome in Brussels?

“Being an American spy or diplomat posted abroad during an era when aggressively resurgent rival powers are rewriting the rules of international politics and diplomacy requires entering into a new matrix of uncertainty. Meanwhile, people are suffering and they’ve so far received about as much compensation as explanation. While the former may soon change, we can expect the latter to remain the same until science – and some stellar detective work – shines a light where currently there is none.”

Jonathan Terra — Political scientist and former diplomat (November 2021)

December 1 2021 — According to recent reports, spies flock to Brussels like bees to a honeypot. This raises an obvious question. Why are there no reported cases of Havana Syndrome in Brussels? Follow us on Twitter: @INTEL_TODAY
