“I think in this case, the State Department going to the National Academy of Sciences is a good idea, and a good move. In part because the independent authority of the academy on scientific matters is often very helpful to policymakers when they need to run with a conclusion, but are reluctant to base it entirely on information coming from within the scientific capacity in government itself.”
John Holdren — Science adviser to President Barack Obama
February 6 2019 — Better late than never! A standing committee at the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine will be aimed at “understanding the current cases of potential acoustic trauma, and develop a better understanding of possible causes of these cases and approaches for future incidents, whether of an apparent acoustic nature or a different environmental or clinical presentation,” says a “statement of task” sent to prospective members.

Some American diplomats — and their doctors — have growing concerns that the U.S. government is trying to downplay whatever happened.
The State Department now appears to be seeking answers from the widest array of experts.
“We are pleased that the Health and Medical Division of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine will assist the Department, as we seek independent, expert guidance as part of the Department’s effort to better understand the unexplained health incidents at posts abroad and determine best medical practices for screening, prevention, and treatment for both short- and long-term care,” a State Department official, who asked not to be named, told Yahoo News.
“The Department has collaborated with the National Academies of Sciences in the past on other topics that affect the health and well-being of Department personnel.”
The State Department has faced criticism, including from Congress, for failing to initially engage the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which is now involved in reviewing the incidents.
I am looking forward to reading the conclusions of this panel regarding the hypothesis of “Mass Hysteria” and the recent “Cricket Theory”!
