Leading into another 9/11 anniversary, the normal al Qaeda scarefest is nowhere to be found. This year’s fearmongering is all about ISIS, and September started by taking the rhetoric up a notch.
Back in August, it was all about how ISIS is tremendously well-funded and like nothing the Pentagon had ever seen and another 9/11 was on the way. Then we were told an ISIS terror attack on American streets is highly likely; so likely, in fact, that an Imminent Terrorist Attack Warning By Feds on US Border alert was released featuring the possibility that ISIS groups operating out of the Mexican border city of Juarez might attack the U.S. with car bombs, although no specific threats had been received.
Then we were told that there are nearly a dozen jets missing from war-torn Libya which could be used to strike 9/11-like targets.
The new and latest September-fresh talking point is that ISIS is going to attack America’s ‘frail and vulnerable’ electric grid. Frank Gaffney, founder and president of the Center for Security Policy in Washington, has actually given it the monicker “grid jihad.”
Not only that, but they are being VERY specific on exactly how ISIS could commit this act and all the ways it could cripple the country if they did.
At a recent press conference, Dr. Peter Pry, a former CIA officer and head of the task force on National and Homeland Security, went on record that America’s power grid faces an “imminent” attack by ISIS — and the media has run with it.
“There is an imminent threat from ISIS to the national electric grid and not just to a single U.S. city,” Pry warns. He points to a leaked U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission report in March that said a coordinated terrorist attack on just nine of the nation’s 55,000 electrical power substations could cause coast-to-coast blackouts for up to 18 months.
“The Congressional EMP Commission, on which I served, did an extensive study of this,” Pry says. “We discovered to our own revulsion that critical systems in this country are distressingly unprotected. We calculated that, based on current realities, in the first year after a full-scale EMP event, we could expect about two-thirds of the national population – 200 million Americans – to perish from starvation and disease, as well as anarchy in the streets.” (source)Here are just a few of the headlines now coming off the news wire.

If ISIS gets a nuclear electromagnetic-pulse device and succeeds in setting it off in America, it could shut down our electric grid and plunge America into the Dark Ages.KBOI2: “Experts warn of ISIS attack on US power grid”
Washington Examiner: "New ISIS threat: America’s electric grid; blackout could kill 9 of 10"
“Inadequate grid security, a porous U.S.-Mexico border, and fragile transmission systems make the electric grid a target for ISIS,” said Peter Pry, one of the nation’s leading experts on the grid.
“By one estimate, should the power go out and stay out for over a year, nine out of 10 Americans would likely perish,” said Frank Gaffney, founder and president of the Center for Security Policy in Washington.WND: “Expert: ‘Imminent’ ISIS threat to U.S. power grid”
