In case you wondered about the microwaves in Havana


There’s been new reporting on the suspected cause of the various symptoms suffered by US consular staff in Havana.

Unfortunately, the press continues to report this as some kind of “microwave weapon”.

There’s no point in just randomly sickening consular employees.

If you want to know why the US consulate was being blasted with microwaves....

3. Yes

The microwave exposure is what causes the symptoms.

https://www.npr.org/2020/12/06/943531538/microwave-radiation-most-plausible-cause-of-diplomats-ailments-report-says

Microwave radiation is the "most plausible" cause of migraines, dizziness, memory loss and other ailments that dozens of U.S. diplomats have complained of while serving in Cuba and China, a new report says.

5. Same thing

There’s no particular point in going through all that effort just to give people headaches.
