NBC and MSNBC have committed themselves to disseminating whatever US intelligence officials tell them to say, as evidenced by the increasing prominence of their national security reporter Ken Dilanian, whose entire career has been defined by repeating what the CIA tells him to say.
In September, NBC and MSNBC reported that Russia was “the main suspect” in what they called “mysterious attacks” that caused “brain injuries” in US government agents in Cuba.
CIA stooge, Ken Dilanian, was the point man on air to explain that “sophisticated microwaves or another type of electromagnetic weapon were likely used on the U.S. government workers” and that Russia was likely behind the attack.
CIA stooge Ken Dilanian elaborated “The other interesting thing that we’re reporting here is that one of the technologies used to injure these American spies and diplomats was some kind of microwave weapon, that is so sophisticated, that the Americans don’t even fully understand it.”
MSNBC hyped its new propaganda piece about the mysterious attacks.
Bush/Cheney Deputy National Security Adviser Juan Zarate, with Josh Lederman said Russia’s guilt was “now more than just a theory. They’re the main suspect.”
Andrea Mitchell, emphasized how serious the incident was, “This is not an accident. This is not a microwave listening device gone bad. This is an attack — against American diplomats and intelligence officers, and this was targeting.”
By the end of the day, NBC curated the developments to be properly fed to the audience, even taking the opportunity to remind the audience that the cold war never really ended and soon we would need to begin fighting Russia in South America.
For four months now, Americans have been led to believe that Russia attacked dozens of US spies acting under diplomatic cover with futuristic electromagnetic microwave weapons that are so sophisticated even the most advanced Pentagon DARPA researchers can’t understand the technology.
NBC and MSNBC spread the claims across their platforms, all blaming Russia for an attack on the U.S. because they were told to by their CIA controllers. Then, the other mainstream outlets gobbled up the claims blindly and continued to spread the bogus story.
The credibility of the NBC/MSNBC conspiracy theory hit a major roadblock this week as two scientists, Alexander Stubbs of Berkeley and Fernando Montealegre-Zapata of the University of Lincoln, published their findings on one key piece of evidence about the incident. They analyzed recordings of the sounds US personnel heard and rather than being some kind of futuristic humming electromagnetic brain weapon, the scientists concluded the sounds were made by a cricket. Specifically, a Caribbean species of cricket during mating season.
The song of the short-tailed cricket, Anurogryllus celerinictus, matches, in every detail, the recordings made, in duration, power, repetition rate, rate stability, and oscillation.
Strong evidence suggests that an echoing cricket was in fact responsible for the mysterious noise, rather than a super secret sonic microwave attack. The brain injuries themselves are now highly doubted, as neurologists and specialists in neuropsychiatry have described major flaws in the studies used to detect them. Experts insist that the original doctors misinterpreted test results, and dismissed more common explanations.
