sound chirp, microwave, saavedra-buckley, the-new-york

The New York Times summed up the past year in a list of "41 debates," one of which is about lingering questions surrounding what has come to be called Havana syndrome. The short piece is by Saavedra Buckley of the magazine Harper's. Are the sounds, in fact, "the chirp of the Indies short-tailed cricket," or is it that "diplomats had been targeted by an experimental microwave weapon"? (I'm not suggesting we try to answer these questions ourselves here on clang.gg. I'm just noting this sound-related topic as one of the "debates," which is to say ongoing debates, singled out.)
