PENTAGON PROBE: “The Pentagon has briefed top lawmakers on intelligence surrounding suspected directed-energy attacks against U.S. troops, and officials identified Russia as a likely culprit, according to two people with direct knowledge of the matter,” POLITICO’s Betsy Woodruff Swan, Andrew Desiderio, Lara Seligman, and Erin Banco report.

The Defense Department has been investigating the incidents, including those targeting its personnel around the world, since last year, according to four former national security officials directly involved in the probe.

The Pentagon declined to comment on its interactions with Capitol Hill or any internal investigation.

Directed-energy attacks on U.S. spies and diplomats are well-documented; the CIA recently set up its own task force to look into the issue. But the recent Pentagon effort to look into similar incidents affecting U.S. troops has not previously been reported.
