Throughout the world, in clandestine laboratories and other hidden facilities, governments are pouring millions upon millions of dollars into illicit projects meant to bolster their ability to conduct covet warfare.
You see, nukes are blasé at this point. If anyone, any where, were to send a nuclear warhead skyward, the entire planet would soon be littered with radioactive fallout thanks to pacts like the “mutually assured destruction” deal that the US and Russia have been engaged in for decades. This horrid event would render your enemy’s land and resources unusable for centuries, thus defeating the entire impetus of the argument anyway.
And so we find ourselves now attempting to defend against strange, now, space-age weaponry that can be deployed just about anywhere in the world…including at the White House.
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.
This wasn’t the only recent incident either.
In a separate 2019 episode, a White House official reported a similar attack while walking her dog in a Virginia suburb just outside Washington, GQ reported last year.
The incident is similar to one experienced by American diplomats in Cuba back in 2016, who were repeatedly made sick by such weaponry.
That incident remains unsolved today, as do those that targeted the White House and its staff.
