This one slipped by me until now:

And American experts said they know of no technology that would explain the symptoms.
"There's never been any kind of physiological response that reflects the symptoms that have been reported that has ever been caused by sound waves of any type," said Joe Pompei, a former MIT researcher who is the founder and president of Holosonics, a sound technology company.

I found the link to the NBC News article at CubaDebate, but the Cuban article seems to be merely a summary in Spanish (My Spanish is a little rusty and was never very good in the first place) of the NBC News article: Expertos de Cuba y EEUU coinciden: No hay evidencias de “ataques sónicos” (CubaDebate, Oct. 25, 2017)
"Stupidity renders itself invisible by assuming very large proportions. Completely unreasonable claims are irrefutable. Ni-en-leh pointed out that a philosopher might get into trouble by claiming that two times two makes five, but he does not risk much by claiming that two times two makes shoe polish." B. Brecht
"The abolition of religion as the illusory happiness of the people is required for their real happiness. The demand to give up the illusion about its condition is the demand to give up a condition which needs illusions." K. Marx
