Following reports of “mysterious” illnesses among U.S. officials, including spies, diplomats and soldiers, the National Security Council is opening an intelligence review into the matter. Now, they will also investigate unreported incidents of injury among U.S. personnel.

These injuries vary from migraines to nausea, and most have happened during extended stays overseas. The Biden administration has not called these instances attacks yet.

“At this point, at this moment, we don’t know the cause of these incidents, which are both limited in nature and the vast majority of which have been reported overseas,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki told a press briefing Wednesday.

The National Security Council has called these instances of “sensory phenomena,” such as sound, pressure or heat. Next, all of the sudden, the physical symptoms appear.

The National Security Council started an intelligence review, to see if other unreported incidents fit the pattern, a spokeswoman said Wednesday.

“We are bringing the U.S. government’s resources to bear to get to the bottom of this,” said Emily J. Horne, a spokeswoman for the council.

Continuity Global Solutions CEO Jerry Torres shared his insight on the rise of cartels at the border with Sara Carter. According to his experience as a defense contractor and documentarian, immigrants aren’t leaving their countries because of the cartels, but for economic opportunity. 

“I’ve met with our special operations forces,” Torres told Carter on the latest episode of The Sara Carter Show. “They have been training on the El Salvador and Special Operations folks, and I met with the deputy director of their special ops folks there. And they said there are no MS-13 here. There might be pockets of them here and there in small neighborhoods, but they pretty much wiped them out.”

Yet, the Biden administration considers the treat of MS-13 a pillar of their lax immigration policy. Instead, Torres says they’re not a threat at all. The locals actually get along fine despite the organized crime. “They’re not in fear of their country, they’re not in fear of the police, they’re not in fear of MS- 13. They just want a better life,” Torres said. “And the thing is, is if you take a look at what they’re claiming asylum, well, asylum is not for economic reasons.”

Meanwhile, the cartel has taken on a new role: human trafficking. Immigrants aren’t afraid of MS-13 because they turn to them for advice. Sara Carter has been reporting on this symbiotic relationship for years. “They’re basically rehearsing with a lot of the people, the migrants that are coming across, this is what you need to say, when you get across. This is what you need to ask for, or you won’t be able to stay,” Carter said. “So it’s kind of like a dress rehearsal of sorts. Before they come here, they are taught: what are our loopholes and what do you need to say.”

Under the Trump administration, the Department of Justice established a task force to fight the murders and other serious crimes committed by MS-13 members.
