Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, who was occasionally criticized during the 2008 campaign for lacking foreign policy/national security gravitas, is headlining an upcoming conference on the threat of an Electromagnetic Pulse attack against the United States.

Scheduled speakers include U.S. Congressional leaders, Department of Defense experts, and many other experts on EMP. In addition, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich will deliver an exclusive video address on EMP prepared specifically for this conference.

Below the fold, the announcement of Huckabee’s appearance:
