Washington, D.C. — Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Vice Chairman Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Chairman Mark Warner (D-VA) released a joint statement regarding the Committee’s ongoing investigation of mysterious direct energy attacks against United States Government personnel:

“For nearly five years, we have been aware of reports of mysterious attacks on United States Government personnel in Havana, Cuba and around the world. This pattern of attacking our fellow citizens serving our government appears to be increasing. The Senate Intelligence Committee intends to get to the bottom of this.  We have already held fact finding hearings on these debilitating attacks, many of which result in medically confirmed cases of Traumatic Brain Injury, and will do more. 

“As the Chairman and Vice Chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, we welcome CIA Director Burns’ renewed focus on these attacks.  Our committee will continue to work with  him, and the rest of the Intelligence Community, to better understand the technology behind the weapon responsible for these attacks.  We will focus on ensuring we protect our personnel and provide the medical and financial support the victims deserve.  Ultimately, we will identify those responsible for these attacks on American personnel and will hold them accountable.”
