theblaze.com Former CIA Director James Woolsey went on The Glenn Beck Program Tuesday evening to discuss the possibility of a “catastrophic” attack on U.S. soil — an assault he believes would come from Iran. “Iran has given every indication they would go forward with [an attack] and they have ballistic missiles that could put something into orbit,” Woolsey told Glenn Beck. The former CIA official went on to say that he believes Iran is very close to having a nuclear weapon, even adding that he could “make the case” that the Persian country already has nuclear capability. “With a nuclear weapon and something that can orbit it, they can use an electromagnetic pulse burst over the center of the United States to take down our electric grid.” According to Woolsey, all infrastructure in the United States relies on the electric grid, adding that the U.S. would suffer roughly an 80 percent death rate if the country was attacked through an electromagnetic pulse.
