A career CIA spy who was involved in the search for Osama Bin Laden has been tapped by the agency to head an investigation into mysterious ailments suffered by dozens of US spies and diplomats.

The undercover official, whose appointment was first reported by The Wall Street Journal, will lead a CIA task force looking into the cases of so-called “Havana Syndrome” — a condition that includes symptoms of dizziness, headaches and nausea.

“Havana Syndrome” was first reported to afflict officials in the US embassy in Cuba.

But since President Joe Biden took office, about two dozen more intelligence officers, diplomats and other officials in Vienna have reported symptoms consistent with the syndrome, the New Yorker magazine reported.

Last December, a panel organized by the the National Academy of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine reported “directed energy” beams were suspected of causing the condition, according to the Journal.

Secretary of State Antony Blinken announced in June that the US is reviewing the cause of the suspected “directed” radio frequency attacks.
