Congressman Joe Wilson Requests Information Regarding Diplomats’ Safety

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Joe Wilson (R-SC) released the following statement after requesting additional information from Secretary of State Mike Pompeo regarding the strange and unexplained symptoms suffered by U.S. diplomats working in China and Cuba.

“I recognize that there are many potential technical causes behind these egregious attacks, which could include direct energy or frequency attacks, also characterized as ‘sonic’ attacks.” Rep. Wilson explained. “I am grateful for the proactive measures the State Department has taken to deal with this situation as it develops.”

Congressman Wilson requested the following: 

  • A report from the State Department that includes the current and planned efforts to address the attacks
  • A report on the current physical protection practices applied towards U.S. embassies, consulates, and embassy residences
  • A discussion on how Congress could provide additional support for a solution to ensure the safety of U.S. diplomats abroad
