President Obama’s opening to Cuba disintegrated as a result of mysterious illnesses suffered by American and Canadian diplomats in 2016. There have been many theories about who perpetrated the attacks and why. The National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine has released a report that is consistent with the hypothesis of University of New Mexico professor Dr. Edl Schamiloglu, who believes that the diplomats were hit with high-power microwaves. His belief is backed by neurology professor and consulting bioethicist for the US Defense Medical Ethics Center, Dr. James Giordano, who was tasked with evaluating the neurological condition of those individuals affected, and who believes these events represent an intentional engagement using novel technology. Ambassador Vicki Huddleston who served three years as Chief of our diplomatic mission in Havana leads the discussion.
