    The brains of 40 former staffers at the US Embassy in Cuba who developed mysterious symptoms during so-called “sonic attacks” have visible differences compared to a control group, according to a new study. The State Department has said the employees developed what became known as “Havana Syndrome” – headaches, dizziness, nausea and other symptoms that arose when they heard penetrating, high-pitched sounds. MRI scans from the 23 men and 17 women showed changes in brain structure and functional connectivity between different parts of the organ compared with 48 other adults, according to the study by the University of Pennsylvania.

    Top State Department spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus said Secretary of State Mike Pompeo believes that only the American flag should be flown at U.S. embassies, after reports emerged last week that the Trump administration rejected requests from embassies around the world to fly the rainbow Pride flag. “Pride Month, that we’re in right now, is celebrated around the world by many State Department employees, by many embassies,” Ortagus said in a Monday press briefing at the department. “The secretary has the position that, as it relates to the flag pole, that only the American flag should be flown there.” The U.S....

    The U.S. diplomatic corps, much of which hails from far-Left Ivy League institutions, has been the most defiant when it comes to obeying POTUS Donald Trump’s policies, as evident by the fact that several American embassies have hoisted the “gay pride” rainbow flag in defiance of the president. After the Trump administration formally denied requests from multiple United States embassies to hoist the LGBT flag in honor of “Pride Month,” several of them, along with other diplomatic missions, are doing it anyway.

    The mythical Palestinian people are on an never-ending crusade to steal the land that rightfully belongs to the Jews, and if Liberal Socialist and avowed anti-semite Bernie Sanders gets elected president, things are going to change radically. First thing that will happen is that he as president will order the US Embassy moved back to Tel Aviv, the second thing that will happen is that he will overturn President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Bernie Sanders, protests to the contrary notwithstanding, hates the regathered nation of Israel, and is working as hard as he can to...

    The U.S. State Department has ordered "non-emergency U.S. government employees" to leave its embassy in Baghdad and its consulate in Erbil.

It has also warned citizens about traveling to Iraq. The U.S. embassy in Baghdad on Sunday tweeted that it was advising "all U.S. citizens of heightened tensions in Iraq and the requirement to remain vigilant."

    While the 2016 presidential race was raging in America, Ukrainian prosecutors ran into some unexpectedly strong headwinds as they pursued an investigation into the activities of a nonprofit in their homeland known as the Anti-Corruption Action Centre (AntAC). The focus on AntAC — whose youthful street activists famously wore “Ukraine F*&k Corruption” T-shirts — was part of a larger probe by Ukraine’s Prosecutor General’s Office into whether $4.4 million in U.S. funds to fight corruption inside the former Soviet republic had been improperly diverted. The prosecutors soon would learn the resistance they faced was blowing directly from the U.S. Embassy...

    US counter-intelligence investigators discovered a suspected Russian spy had been working undetected in the heart of the American embassy in Moscow for more than a decade, the Guardian has learned. The Russian national had been hired by the US Secret Service and is understood to have had access to the agency’s intranet and email systems, which gave her a potential window into highly confidential material including the schedules of the president and vice-president. The woman had been working for the Secret Service for years before she came under suspicion in 2016 during a routine security sweep conducted by two investigators...
