“Dear Jeff, two years ago I tried to contact so many journalists. Not one ever replied…. We could have caught them ‘Red Handed’. Pure and simple. I actually recommended a simple way to document these attacks in Brussels, Belgium, in 2014.”
Intel Today — Message to Jeff Stein (March 18 2019)
“Yes, I’m aware. I’ve been following this from the get-go. I’m glad ’60 Minutes’ did the story, but per usual, they gave no credit to the work of others.”
Jeff Stein [Newsweek ] — Reply to Intel Today (March 18 2019)
March 29 2019 — Mysterious attacks in Cuba and China — and elsewhere even if not yet reported — have caused several victims to suffer damage in the inner ear and brain trauma. CBS “60 Minutes” has investigated these illnesses and spoke to some of the victims. What they found suggests the illnesses could be the result of microwave attacks by China. Does it ring a bell?

For the record — The expression “Havana Syndrome” was coined by Dr. Ludwig De Braeckeleer and appeared for the first time in a story published by the Intel Today blog on October 3 2017. [Here is the tweet]
On October 3 2017, I wrote:
“Quick Analysis — If the facts are confirmed and if the effects are indeed caused by a physical device, I find the microwave explanation far more likely than a sonic attack; for many reasons.
If this is indeed the case, I expect to hear nothing further in the future because the truth would sent a wave of panic in the Telecom sector.”
On December 14 2017, I told my readers the sad story of a former NSA officer. In the 1990’s, Mike Beck and an NSA co-worker were on assignment overseas. Years later, they developed Parkinson’s Disease at the same time.
RELATED POST: NSA Spy’s Disease Caused by Secret Microwave Weapon?
In that post, I explained that Mike Beck believes that a weaponized microwave attack caused the Parkinson’s disease that is now slowly killing him 10 years later.
In 2006, at the rather young age of 46, Mike Beck was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. (Only about 10 percent of those diagnosed with the illness are younger than 50.)
Charles W. Gubete — an NSA colleague who spent a critical week with Beck in a hostile country more than twenty years ago (1996) — has also been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. Gubete — who lived in Laurel, Md. — died from a cause that remains unknown.
According to a classified intelligence report, Beck and his co-worker were likely the victims of a “covert microwave attack”.
“Beck believes that while he and his colleague were sleeping in their hotel rooms, the hostile country, which he cannot name for security reasons, deployed a high-powered microwave weapon against them, damaging their nervous systems.”
On August 29 2018, Beatrice Golomb — MD, PhD, professor of medicine at University of California San Diego School of Medicine — concluded that reported symptoms and experiences of a “mystery illness” afflicting American and Canadian diplomats in Cuba and China strongly match known effects of pulsed microwave electromagnetic radiation.
On September 1 2018, the NYT published a long article titled: “Microwave Weapons Are Prime Suspect in Ills of U.S. Embassy Workers.
At that time, it became obvious to me that most people had no idea what “Microwave Spying” was. This is why I wrote a short post explaining how it works.
On September 17 2018, I wrote:
Once upon a time, the Russians relied for many years on a technology unknown to the Americans to spy on the US ambassador in Moscow. The device — known as “The thing” — was the brainchild of an extraordinary genius: Leon Theremin.
I have long suspected that “Microwave Spying” is still a tool on the shelf of the modern spies.
In the aftermath of Edward Snowden’s revelations, Der Spiegel publisheda catalog of surveillance technologies used by the NSA and CIA to eavesdrop on foreign spies and diplomats.
And indeed, these documents show that the U.S. Intelligence is using products — with names like LOUDAUTO and ANGRYNEIGHBOR — against foreign embassies which are generally considered as direct successors of Leon Theremin’s brilliant invention.
If microwave radiation has been used to spy against US diplomats in Havana, it would be very useful to know what frequencies were used? We may learn something from the US’s own equipment! (Usually, scientists around the world come up with similar designs for the same reasons.)
From the documents leaked by Edward Snowden regarding LOUDAUTO, I suggest that the US microwave spying tool is based on frequencies in the 1 to 2 GHz range.
By then, the idea that US and Canadian diplomats had been targeted with microwave weapons was accepted as plausible by MSM. But, of course, the culprit could only be Russia!
This is why I wrote another post, explaining that, in my opinion, China was a far more likely actor in this affair.
On January 9 2019, I therefore wrote:
“Finally, I can reveal that these (Belgian) public servants have hidden a very sophisticated espionage operation conducted in Brussels by a non-friendly intelligence agency against US interests.”
Considering the title of the post, you may easily identify which country I had in mind…
CBS 60 Minutes — March 2019
Mark Lenzi is a State Department security officer who worked in the U.S. Consulate in Guangzhou, China.
Lenzi used top-secret equipment to analyze electronic threats to diplomatic missions.
Mark Lenzi: There is no shadow of a doubt in my mind that this was a directed attack against my neighbor and I. This was a directed standoff attack against my apartment.
Scott Pelley: It was a weapon?
Mark Lenzi: Oh, of course it was a weapon.
Scott Pelley: An energy weapon–
Mark Lenzi: Absolutely.
Scott Pelley: What sort of energy is this that we’re talking about?
Mark Lenzi: I believe it’s RF, radio frequency energy, in the microwave range.
A clue that supports that theory was revealed by the National Security Agency in 2014.
This NSA statement describes such a weapon as a “high-powered microwave system weapon that may have the ability to weaken, intimidate, or kill an enemy over time without leaving evidence.”
The statement goes on to say “…this weapon is designed to bathe a target’s living quarters in microwaves.”
The NSA disclosed this in a worker’s compensation case filed by former NSA employee Mike Beck.
Scott Pelley: When you look back across your career is there any incident that leads you to believe that it could be responsible for your Parkinson’s disease?
Mike Beck: Yes. In 1996 a colleague of mine, Chuck Gubete, and I travelled to a hostile country and worked there for about a week. And um, I can’t say where the hostile country– the identity of it.
Scott Pelley: Because it’s still classified?
Mike Beck: Yes.
But for reasons that are unclear, the State Department is raising doubt about the other 14 China cases. The State Department’s medical office sent Mark Lenzi this note that says, “We have reached the decision that your symptoms and findings do not correlate with the Havana cohort.”
Mark Lenzi: They tried to deny it. They tried to cover it up. They tried to minimize it.
Scott Pelley: Why would the State Department minimize this?
Mark Lenzi: Because it’s China, because we have such a large trade relationship with them. You can push around Cuba. Their trade, you know, relations are minimal. With China, that’s a different beast. Right?
I think can agree that Intel Today did an amazing job on this story. We suggested the cause of the illness long before anyone. We identified previous cases. And, we even suggested the most likely culprit behind this operation.
How could this be? Either, Intel Today has the ability to read the future with some crystal ball, or we simply discovered the truth. Well, you decide. What do you think?
Obviously, there is a good chance that I was right about the microwave attacks. I am afraid that my second prediction may also be correct. Has the official cover-up begun? I think so.
RELATED POST: Havana Syndrome — The Cover-Up Has Begun [UPDATE]
Both NPR and Scientific American have recently published dubious pieces regarding this extraordinary affair. (More about these stories soon…)
In a recent post, I wrote:
“I am incredibly dismayed that NPR promoted story w/o any effort noted to get views of injured.
It is publicly known I rep nearly one dozen diplomats injured in Cuba/China & I am easy to find.
Not one of these critics has first-hand knowledge. You fell for Cuban disinformation.”
“60 Minutes” speaks with survivor of mysterious health attack in China
CBS News correspondent Steve Dorsey has followed the case closely and joins CBSN to discuss what’s next.
Catherine Werner is a U.S. Commerce Department trade officer who promoted American business from the Guangzhou Consulate.
Catherine Werner: I woke up in the middle of the night. I could feel this sound in my head. Um, it was intense pressure on both of my temples. At the same time, I heard this low humming sound, and it was oscillating. And I remember looking around for where this sound was coming from, because it was painful.
Scott Pelley: When did you first notice that you weren’t feeling well?
Catherine Werner: October of 2017, I started to get hives all over my body. Really bad hives. I woke up with headaches every day. Um, I started to feel tired. The simplest things would just make me very, very tired.
Scott Pelley: Were these symptoms growing worse over time?
Catherine Werner: They were. Yes. My symptoms would get so bad that I would throw up, or I would wake up with nosebleeds.
