In 2016 and 2017, twenty-five Americans, including CIA agents, who worked in the U.S. embassy in Cuba suffered serious brain injuries causing impaired vision and memory loss (among other persistent symptoms). 60 Minutes learned that at least fifteen American officials working at U.S. embassies in China also suffered unexplained brain trauma soon after. At the time, the FBI was actively investigating whether these Americans were attacked by a mysterious weapon that leaves no trace. Over a ten-month investigation, 60 Minutes collected evidence of what appears to be a hostile foreign government’s plan to target Americans serving abroad and their families.
