Almost a year ago, I reported on the search for the culprit of mysterious ailments on American diplomats in Cuba; this year, I reported that diplomats in China were experiencing the same symptoms and that a cause had not yet been determined. Last Saturday, September 1, the New York Times published the results of various studies that searched for the cause of brain damage in so many diplomats and their families: Microwave Weapons Are Prime Suspect in Ills of U.S. Embassy Workers. Of course, microwave weapons do not refer to the most common “microwave”, the microwave oven, but “[any] electromagnetic wave with wavelength between that of infrared light and radio waves.” (Microwave weapons are not a new phenomenon. As these ailments show, other countries use this method of attack and, for over a decade, the American military has been searching for ways to use it in battle.) However, even after a year of study, as to what caused so many to experience the so-called Frey Effect, nothing is conclusive.
