US Confirms it Isn’t Handing Over Information to Cuba on “Sonic Attacks”

Departamento-de-Estado-1

The US Department of State’s spokeswoman Heather Nauert affirmed that her country isn’t giving Cuba any information about the alleged “sonic attacks” that twenty or so US diplomats were allegedly victim to. She thereby confirmed the complaint made this week by Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez.

“We don’t want this information to leak. This information could leak to other parties who might be involved (in these incidents). Providing information about the investigation could alert those who we will call the “bad guys”, the real people responsible for this,” Nauert pointed out at a press conference.

The spokeswoman also reminded us that Washington still hasn’t figured out “who or what is responsible” for these attacks, and she stressed that she wasn’t referring “to the Cuban people” when she spoke about “bad guys”.

This matter of “mystery weapons” has taken a tragic tone at times, but at other times, it seems like something pulled straight out of a James Bond movie and these statements talking about “bad guys” could be rated as a primary school response.

Anyhow, even though the “baddies” aren’t Cuban, these are the people who are being punished, especially ordinary Cubans who will no longer be granted visas to visit their families.
