Frightening attacks on U.S. personnel in Havana struck the heart of America's spy network in Cuba, with intelligence operatives among the first and most severely affected victims, the Associated Press has learned. It wasn't until U.S. spies, posted to the embassy under diplomatic cover, reported hearing bizarre sounds and experiencing even stranger physical effects that the United States realized something was wrong, individuals familiar with the situation said.When the attacks first occurred, the U.S. and Cuban governments were hard at work on clinching new commercial and immigration agreements.Eleven months on, the U.S. cannot guarantee the threat is over. Since first disclosing the situation in August, the United States had generally avoided the word "attacks".Many have spent years overseas and don't have homes waiting for them in the United States.The U.S. has been providing 20,000 visas a year to Cubans moving to the United States.Some in the U.S. government believe the Cubans may be telling the truth, officials said.The U.S. had raised complaints about the attacks to Cuba just days earlier through diplomatic channels.
