[Ed. – Haven’t been able to get a date in November 2020 for the “attack” on the Ellipse. An unnamed White House staffer was reportedly “sickened,” with symptoms like those attending other suspected directed-energy attacks. As with so much reporting these days, one of the things we have to ask ourselves is if a theme is being flogged to persuade us of something.]
Federal agencies are investigating at least two possible incidents on US soil, including one near the White House in November of last year, that appear similar to mysterious, invisible attacks that have led to debilitating symptoms for dozens of US personnel abroad.
Multiple sources familiar with the matter tell CNN that while the Pentagon and other agencies probing the matter have reached no clear conclusions on what happened, the fact that such an attack might have taken place so close to the White House is particularly alarming.
Defense officials briefed lawmakers on the Senate and House Armed Services Committees on the matter earlier this month, including on the incident near the White House. That incident, which occurred near the Ellipse, the large oval lawn on the south side of the White House, sickened one National Security Council official, according to multiple current and former US officials and sources familiar with the matter.
