“Havana Syndrome” Task Force Established by CIA

A veteran of the hunt for Osama bin Laden will lead the investigation.

A veteran of the Central Intelligence Agency’s efforts to track down Osama bin Laden has been selected to head the task force examining a number of apparent “Havana syndrome” attacks that have left government personnel with unexplained negative health effects.

The attacks first occurred in Havana in 2016 and have since surfaced in a number of other countries, leaving American diplomats and others with neurological symptoms ranging from vertigo to insomnia to cognitive difficulties.

The unnamed leader of the task force has experience in the agency’s Counterterrorism Center and largely focused on bin Laden and al Qaeda.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the task force that will be investigating the “Havana syndrome” attacks on U.S. personnel.
  • For the leadership of the CIA and the agents at work around the globe.
  • For the safety and security of American diplomats and others serving in embassies, consulates, or other facilities abroad.
