President Trump declared this month – November 2017 – to be Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience Month. Perhaps the Congress can embrace this idea and make one of the most urgently needed policy reversals of our time by saving the Congressional EMP Commission.
At the very same time that North Korea is threatening an EMP attack on the United States, The House Armed Services Committee dismantled this national treasure in their version of the 2018 National Defense Authorization Act, scuttling the free world’s foremost expertise on EMP and other threats to our nation’s electric grid.
The Senate Armed Services Committee has a chance to amend the NDAA and reverse this institutional suicide. If they don’t, we’ll need President Trump to do more than dedicate a calendar month to Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience – we’ll need him to appoint his own PRESIDENTIAL EMP Commission.
