Newt Gingrich: The Second Greatest Threat to America — “The second is an electromagnetic pulse attack which would literally destroy the country’s capacity to function.”

Newt Gingrich is a globalist, establishment-neocon, warmonger/torturer/regime changer, whom I could never support, but he said one important thing that the other candidates didn’t mention in yesterday’s CNN debate.

GINGRICH: I — I helped create the Hart-Rudman Commission with President Clinton, and they came back after three years and said the greatest threat to the United States was the weapon of mass destruction in an American city, probably from a terrorist. That was before 9/11.

That’s one of the three great threats. The second is an electromagnetic pulse attack which would literally destroy the country’s capacity to function.

And the third, as Herman just said, is a cyber attack. All three of those are outside the current capacity of our system to deal with.
