Americans Evacuate From US Consulate In China After Debilitating Sonic Attacks

Several US citizens have been evacuated from the US consulate in Guangzhou, China, after falling ill with various neurological symptoms from mysterious "sonic attacks" similar to incidents reported in Havana Cuba which left 20 State Department employees with serious injuries. 

On Wednesday night, consulate worker Mark Lenzi and his family were evacuated after hearing strange noises over the course of several months, which Lenzi described as "marbles bouncing and hitting a floor then rolling on an incline with a static sound," according to the Washington Post

At first, he and his wife thought that their neighbor — a fellow Foreign Service officer in the U.S. Consulate in Guangzhou, China — was responsible. The neighbor denied having anything to do with it.

A few months later, the headaches started — excruciating pain that lasted for days at a time. Lenzi, his wife, and their 3-year-old son experienced the same symptoms, which soon included chronic sleeplessness as well. Lenzi says that he asked his superiors for help but that they dismissed his concerns. Consulate doctors prescribed painkillers and Ambien, which did nothing to address the underlying causes of the problem. -WaPo

Lenzi then learned that his next-door neighbor had been evacuated from the consulate and flown back to the United States to undergo a thorough medical assessment - which concluded that the person was suffering from "mild traumatic brain injury."

The State Department issued a statement on May 23, warning that an unnamed "U.S. government employee in China recently reported subtle and vague, but abnormal, sensations of sound and pressure,” and urging anyone with “concerns about symptoms or medical problems that developed during or after a stay in China” to “consult a medical professional.”

The statement also said that the U.S. government was unaware of any other cases — a point strongly disputed by Lenzi, who insists that he had repeatedly informed both the embassy in Beijing and State Department headquarters in Washington of his family’s predicament. “Mark is a very capable guy,” says political consultant Michael Getto, a longtime friend of Lenzi’s. “If he says something is wrong or amiss, then it is.” -WaPo

The description of the sound - which the victim said produced abnormal sensations and pressures - sound eerily familiar to a series of similar "sonic attacks" that afflicted US embassy personnel in Havana, beginning shortly after President Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential race.

On May 23, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo noted the comparisons between the China incidents and the Cuban attacks during a House hearing, stating "The medical indications are very similar, and entirely consistent with, the medical indications that were taking place to Americans working in Cuba." 

And in testimony before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee last month, Pompeo said China had "said all the right things and have demonstrated their willingness to help us identify the vector which led to this medical incident," according to the Associated Press.

Meanwhile, a team of scientists at the University of Michigan say they may have found the source of the mysterious sounds.  They said that two sources of ultrasounds - such as eavesdropping - may have been placed too closely together, provoking an intense sound like the one described by the victims, according to the Miami Herald.

US-China relations

Though their source has never been determined, the attacks damaged relations between the US and Cuban governments and also left some embassy employees with mild brain damage. The US recalled most of its embassy staff from Havana before expelling 15 Cuban diplomats from Washington in response to the alleged attack.

Lenzi says he believes that the number of those affected will turn out to be higher than Washington expects. If he’s right, U.S.-Chinese relations could start to enter a rocky patch. -WaPo

Likewise, the new sonic attacks risk straining relationships between Washington and Beijing - which the Trump administration has been pressing hard on trade, while at the same time relying on China to help negotiate with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. As WaPo notes, "A widening scandal involving the possible mistreatment of U.S. diplomats couldn’t come at a worse time."

So far, the fact that only a single staff member is publicly known to have been affected has allowed the Trump administration to play down the Guangzhou case. That may no longer be possible if more victims present themselves — and Lenzi, for one, is not prepared to go away quietly. -WaPo

Would you if your wife and three-year-old had been sonically attacked to the point of brain injury

Mike Pompeo has dispatched the "Health Incidents Response Task Force" to Guangzhou on May 31 to examine consulate employees who so request, including Lenzi and his family - who have been told they will likely receive a detailed brain analysis in the United States. 

The high-level medical team's role includes “identification and treatment of affected personnel and family members, investigation and risk mitigation, messaging, and diplomatic outreach.

In the same announcement, Pompeo said that “24 US government personnel and family members who served in Cuba have been medically-confirmed as having symptoms and clinical findings similar to those noted following concussion or minor traumatic brain injury”, as well as the initial China consulate victim.

Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Lu Kang said in a press briefing that China had investigated the May 16 cases but found no reason for the illness. 

“China has conducted a very careful investigation and has given preliminary findings to the US, and we haven’t found the reason or clues that led to the situation mentioned by the US,” he said.

“China has always followed the Vienna Convention on diplomatic relations and consular relations to protect the US diplomatic staff and staff from other countries.”

What could be causing these mysterious attacks?

Satellite phones with heavy encryption for embassy staff, I am sure those puppies put out some serious microwaves and may be cooking their brains lol. So why not blame it on the Chinese or Cubans.  This way these casseroles can sue the govts of China, Cuba, and Russia like the 9/11 victims sued IRAN lol, and the USA govt gets off scot free

"Hello SPAM-LOVERS!!!  I m BACK from being BANNED!!!  Let's get to it ...." 

I'm sorry but who the fuck are you, again?  I've been here commenting for years (with actual considered opinions on things not made in some fucking troll farm) and if I died tomorrow nobody would give a flying shit.  What do you think that says about your awesome legacy on this board, Ozymanias (aka ravolla)?

Fucking lightweight.

Note all ye who find themselves working (or considering working) for .gov

THIS is a typical government response to their own people having real problems - it is how the "leaders" deal with "the problem":

Lenzi says that he asked his superiors for help but that they dismissed his concerns. Consulate doctors prescribed painkillers and Ambien, which did nothing to address the underlying causes of the problem

1; dismiss the problem

2: use medication that does nothing for the problem

3: either you are dead or debilitated

Go ahead - work for .gov

What is most likely happening is an accidental result of surveillance or communication technology or from  other sources of electromagnetic or acoustic waves.

Mass hysteria and purposeful sonic or EM attacks are lower probability.

 

Nobody actually tests anything before it gets deployed, not the USA, Cuba, Chinese, anybody.    At least that is what I have seen from my experience anyway lol.

 

Hopefully there is karmic justice and spooks everywhere, but especially Chinese spooks, are getting their brains fried too.

Yeh well I've heard just the same noise in china. I did live just next to a government housing complex in the middle of a big city about 6 years ago, only seperated by a wall and 20m of air. Foreigners were not allowed to enter into their compound.

 

But yeah, most likely neighbours. Chinese houses have no insulation whatsoever and there were plenty of people, rats and roaches in the building.. But who knows.. We werent much to spy on thats for sure but since it was next to the gov maybe they wanted to know for sure.

The State Department knows exactly what it is.  And it is not ultrasound.  It is beamed, highly focused microwaves.  They know what it is because the DoD, NSA, and CIA have been abusing the technology for decades.  They have it down to the point that modulated microwaves can stimulate the cochlea with enough precision to give the subjective impression of a person speaking in the same room.  It is frequently used by the deep state against US citizens.  It was used en mass with substantial success against Iraqi soldiers where the voice, in Arabic of course, claimed that he was Allah, and they should lay down their weapons.  The DoD referred to it as "the Voice of God." Calling it ultrasound is just a red herring.  They don't want people to know that they have this sort of weapon.  It is possible that Cuba and China are using it in retaliation for its use against them.  Its use can be detected by a $150 RF meter.

Pesticides in the food will do that. These insecticides can damage your kidneys and/or the tiny cells in your ear so you hear loud noises or ringing.

My suggestion is to stop eating local food.

Also, quite a few of their drugs are contaminated I read, even the ones sold in legit drug stores can be fake or harmful so you have to be extra careful.

I had an ex wife like that.  Nag nag nag, until the water inside the cells of my head were modulated. Fukt me up...

So its a sonic attack, but no sound? Not measured in db's, but freq/sec and period length... Just like my ex!

Legalize medical marijuana in China.  Then you can officially write off the minor brain damage as 'cause unknown' and at least the victims would no longer care. They will happily continue to function   until they have to change jobs to become Otto the School bus Driver Dude.
