RESCHEDULED: Subcommittee Hearing to Examine Homeland Security Threats Posed by Havana Syndrome

April 11, 2024

WASHINGTON, D.C. — On Wednesday, May 8, the House Homeland Security Subcommittee on Counterterrorism, Law Enforcement, and Intelligence, led by Chairman August Pfluger (R-TX), will hold a hearing to receive testimony from experts and former government officials regarding anomalous health incidents (AHIs), also known as ‘Havana Syndrome,’ the symptoms of which have been reportedly experienced by an increasing number of Americans that have been targeted abroad and in the homeland.

The possible targeting of Americans resulting in anomalous health incidents, especially on U.S. soil, is a chilling reminder of the potential lengths adversarial regimes could go to undermine and disrupt our diplomatic, military, or intelligence activities,” Chairman Pfluger said. “If caused purposefully by foreign actors, these attacks are a clear and blatant violation of our national sovereignty. This Subcommittee has a responsibility to examine these incidents and the potential technology and culprits behind them. I look forward to hearing the testimony from our witnesses and gaining a clearer understanding of this possible threat to our homeland security.


What: A Subcommittee on Counterterrorism, Law Enforcement, and Intelligence hearing entitled, “Silent Weapons: Examining Foreign Anomalous Health Incidents Targeting Americans in the Homeland and Abroad.”

When: Wednesday, May 8, 2024 at 2:00 PM ET
