Dozens of CIA officers accuse intel agency of soft-pedaling its ‘Havana Syndrome’ investigation

Dozens of former CIA officers have gone to the House and Senate intelligence committees accusing the intel agency of soft-pedaling its 'Havana Syndrome' investigation.

It first surfaced six years ago when a cluster of U.S. government personnel stationed in the Cuban capital city began reporting symptoms consistent with head trauma. These include dizziness and extreme headaches. Similar symptoms have since presented in U.S. personnel stationed around the world.

The CIA's Task Force has been investigating whether a foreign nation might be carrying out attacks for three years. The investigation is ongoing, but so far they've found little evidence to support the theory.

The CIA reportedly began disbursing payments for some victims earlier this year, after Congress passed legislation mandating compensation for CIA and government victims.
