HAVANA TIMES — 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.

  • I fail to understand why you continue to implicate US malfeasance without any proof and against the majority of international opinion. Are you blind/ignorant to the Cuban regime’s machinations or are you just a provocateur? (Rhetorical question. Please don’t answer on my account. I am completely bored with your misguided and naive rants.)
    BTW, I expect this gets posted. I fear the HT moderators have been exposed to censorship and lack of literary freedom for too long and have and have resorted to hold back some of my commentary.

  • A hosting country can only do that much to protect foreign diplomats on its soil. I sincerely believe this was an inside job triggered by special interests hostile to Cuban-US relations and undo Obama’s foreign policy achievements. Therefore, the Trump regime has nothing to prove but their own intentions! I, too, want to see change and improvements in Cuban society but isolating them is not the way to do it. We need more people to people contact!

  • Really Terry? Do you have any proof that there wasn’t an attack?

  • Hosting countries are responsible for foriegn diplomats’ welfare. Can we agree on that Hans?
    If someone walks up to you and clubs you in the face, but you can’t prove who did it, does that mean it didn’t happen?
