According to the US-based broadcaster CNN, last week the CIA gave a briefing on the “Havana Syndrome”, which has been on the agenda recently and is seen by some state officials.
In the briefing on Havana Syndrome cases, which are predicted to occur right after an energy attack, some senators on the Senate Intelligence Committee stated that they had just learned the serious information about these events, and they were disappointed that they could not get more details.
Also, CIA Director Bill Burns told Congress members that he gave priority to their research on this issue, while Congressmen claimed that the CIA did not do enough to do this.
Two sources close to the subject told CNN that the briefing was one of the “most controversial” briefings held at the Congress recently.
Sources noted that the CIA still believes that US officials in some countries are continuing energy attacks that lead to Havana Syndrome, and it is the first time they have spoken about the incident in a European country.
