I've talked about the catastrophic consequences that an EMP (ElectroMagnetic Pulse) weapons attack could have on America during several of my previous shows and listeners have asked if I would dedicate a show to this subject. My guest this week is Mr. F.Michael Maloof, has agreed to come on the show this week and talk about ElectroMagnetic Pulse weapons, which very few Americans are even aware that they exist. Mr. Maloof is one of the most knowledgeable individuals on this subject. He has almost 30 years of federal service in the U.S. Defense Department and as a specialized trainer for border guards and Special Forces in select countries of the Caucasus and Central Asia.  While with the Department of Defense, Maloof was director of technology security operations as head 
of a 10-person team involved in halting the diversion of militarily critical technologies to countries of national security and proliferation concern and those involved in sponsoring terrorism. 
America's critical national infrastructures all are linked together - and to the power grid - and that opens the door for a variety of different scenarios in which an electromagnetic pulse event would create a catastrophe, analysts have warned. The danger was recognizedyears ago when the 2008 report of the Commission to Assess the Threat to the United States from Electromagnetic Pulse Attack confirmed the threat from "highly interlocked critical infrastructures may be greater than the sum of the vulnerability of its parts." Relatively low-yield nuclear weapons could be used to create potentially catastrophic EMP effects over wide geographic areas, but the number of countries developing or already possessing such a capability (like Iran and North Korea) is increasing as there has been an increased number of "adversaries" who are seeking these weapons.
