It sounds like something out of a Hollywood movie, a bomb with an electromagnetic pulse that can take out all the lights in Los Angeles without collateral damage. It might sound like Hollywood, but this could be our reality if Iran attacks our electrical grid like they have laid out in “Passive Defense,” a secret Iranian military document.

Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.) shared information about Iran’s potential electromagnetic pulse, or EMP, attack as it is described in “Passive Defense,” with Circa. And right now Franks thinks an EMP attack is “the most dangerous short-term national security threat that we face.”
