This has got to be greatest hyped threat of the year for war, courtesy of Paul Bedard at, natch, the Washington Examiner.  "Former top government officials who have been warning Washington about the vulnerability of the nation’s largely unprotected electric grid are raising new fears that troops from the jihadist Islamic State are poised to attack the system, leading to a power crisis that could kill millions."

And from old reliable Frank Gaffney:   
“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.

At the afternoon press conference, Gaffney dubbed the potential crisis the "grid jihad."

Don't laugh Greg. Islamist jihadists may be under your bed right now. What can be done? Put smart monitoring devices on every home and in every car so that Uncle Sam can protect you.

Sam's corporate sponsors will make billions selling you new gadgets you don't need, and you can spend that gridlock commute time in your new robot car worrying about something important, like nude celebrity pics.
