Senator Shaheen has long supported government workers and their families who suffered these mysterious injuries from directed energy attacks, and led efforts in Congress to provide them with essential health benefits. President Biden’s upcoming Fiscal Year (FY) 2022 National Defense Bill includes a Shaheen provision based on his stand-alone legislation that will reform the US government’s investigation and response to energy attacks suspected, and will improve access to care for affected individuals. Specifically, the provision will require the president to appoint a senior national security official to organize a whole-of-government response and order the heads of relevant agencies to designate senior officials to lead their agency’s response.
Shaheen’s Fiscal 2022 Defense Bill’s provision builds on his efforts to strengthen Congressional oversight over directed energy attacks. In the FY2021 NDAA that became law, Shaheen managed to include language to expand a legal provision she had previously written to provide long-term emergency care benefits to all U.S. government employees. and their dependents who were mysteriously injured while working in China and Cuba. Earlier this year, legislation co-sponsored by Shaheen, led by Senator Collins, to support public servants who suffered injuries from directed energy attacks was enacted.
Wednesday, Shaheen spoke with NBC’s chief Washington correspondent and chief foreign affairs correspondent Andrea Mitchell about this matter, which followed Secretary Blinken’s visit to John Hopkins Medicine, where State Department employees are now also receiving care for brain damage caused by directed energy attacks. Senator Shaheen and Senator Collins (R-ME) called on the administration to expand access to care at Walter Reed for those affected by these incidents, which Shaheen shared with Mitchell.
