Senator Jeff Flake claims to be an anti-Trump Republican, but has also supported former President Obama’s policies on Cuba.
“I don’t often agree with President Obama, but he was right to begin the process of normalizing relations with Cuba. The funny thing about freedom is that when people experience a little more of it, they don’t want to give it up, and they want more than they have. That has been the case with travel and will continue to be the case in Cuba,” said Flake in 2014.
24 US diplomats and their spouses in Cuba reported hearing loss and ear-ringing. This led some U.S. officials to believe Cuba launched “sonic attacks.” According to ABC “Medical testing has revealed that some embassy workers had apparent abnormalities in their white matter tracts that let different parts of the brain communicate, several U.S. officials said, and acoustic waves have never been shown to alter those tracts.”
However, Flake immediately defended Cuba. “The Cuban Interior Ministry is saying the FBI has told them there is no evidence of a sonic attack, even though that term is being used, attack, there is no evidence of it,” said Flake.
“There’s no evidence that somebody purposefully tried to harm somebody. Nobody is saying that these people didn’t experience some event, but there’s no evidence that that was a deliberate attack by somebody, either the Cubans or anybody else. As I said, I won’t talk about what I have seen in a classified setting, but nothing is inconsistent with what the Cubans have said, and I think the FBI would say that,” said Flake.
