Terrorists armed with inexpensive radio frequency weapons that can emit powerful electromagnetic microwave energy could cause blackouts that would offer operational advantages over assault rifles and bombs, according to Peter Pry, executive director of the congressional advisory Task Force on National and Homeland Security, in a new report in Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin. Radio frequency weapons, or RFWs, are a non-nuclear electromagnetic pulse, or EMP, weapon capable of emitting a pulse similar to an E1 EMP from a nuclear weapon, except with less energetic and of a much shorter radius, out to a kilometer, Pry said.

“Thanks to RF Weapons,” Pry said, “we have arrived at a place where the technological pillars of civilization for a major metropolitan area could be toppled by a single individual.” He gave an example of how terrorists armed with RF weapons could use unclassified computer models to duplicate a recent U.S. study by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, or FERC, to coordinate attacks on each of the nation’s three separate electrical grid systems to collapse the entire power network.
