The United States Pentagon in combination with other federal agencies is investigating two possible, strange attacks on American soil, one of which was close to the White House, according to a new report from CNN.
According to the report, these bizarre “directed energy” attacks took place in November of last year and left those affected by it with debilitating symptoms similar to mysterious, invisible attacks that affected dozens of US personal while abroad.
Numerous sources familiar with the matter at hand tell CNN that the Pentagon and other officials have yet to reach any clear conclusions as to what exactly happened, but find it extra concerning that one of the attacks may have taken place so close to the White House.
Chris Miller, who was named acting Defense secretary at the end of Donald Trump’s presidency, said, “I knew CIA and Department of State were not taking this sh*t seriously, and we wanted to shame them into it by establishing our task force.”

Several current and former officials with knowledge on the matter claim that earlier this month, Pentagon officials briefed the Senate and House Armed Services Committees and gave details on the November 2020 potential attack near the Ellipse that left one National Security Council official ill.
A similar sort of attack was reported by a White House official back in 2019 who claimed she experienced symptoms while out walking her dog in a Virginia suburb outside of Washington.
Symptoms have been reported as ear-popping, vertigo, pounding headaches and nausea, sometimes accompanied by an unidentified “piercing directional noise.”
These symptoms are apparently similar to those experienced by CIA and State Department personnel who fell ill from a so-called “Havana syndrome” attack while working abroad.
So far, defense officials have told lawmakers that Russia could very well be behind the attacks, while a different former US official said China was also being considered as a suspect.
