U.S. Representative Curt Weldon and Election Night Recap
A member of EMPact America's Advisory Board, Congressman Curt Weldon served for 20 years in the United States Congress retiring as both Vice Chair of the House Armed Services Committee, as well as Vice Chair of the House Homeland Security Committee. He also served on the Energy Committee of the House Science Committee.
Notably, together with Congressman Roscoe Bartlett, Congressman Curt Weldon founded the Congressional EMP Commission. He was also the co-chair of the Duma-Congress Study Group, the official inter-parliamentary relationship between the United States and Russia, through which the United States learned a lot about Russia's nuclear-EMP tests, capabilities, and strategic posture. Rep. Weldon is also widely regarded as the father of missile defense in Congress.
In 2005, Congressman Weldon famously gave a speech introducing the American public to a controversial military intelligence operation called Able Danger. Able Danger was a classified military planning effort led by the U.S. Special Operations Command (SOCOM). It was claimed by several of those involved with Able Danger that the program identified two of the three cells responsible for 9/11 at least a year before the attacks. Able Danger and the possibility of a government coverup continues to be a controversial subject.
