We were talking about this last week and here is some info.

... ok looks like it isnt working just check out the war scenarios on cnn.com

E-bomb
An electromagnetic bomb -- or e-bomb -- reportedly can be attached to a cruise missile and launched from a bomber aircraft. Although its existence has never been officially acknowledged, theoretically, the e-bomb creates a high-speed electromagnetic pulse similar to that created by a nuclear blast. The pulse permanently disables electrical and telecommunications systems, rendering useless enemy command and control centers, communication infrastructure and missile circuitry within its radius.

If you have seen the remake of Ocean's Eleven, that sounds very similar to what Don Chadle's character did to knock out the power so they could rob the casino.

An EMP Bomb essentially. A nuclear bomb does the same thing but this is without the fire, just the electrical interference caused by the bomb!

I dont think the damage they cause is always permanent. It might fry a curcuit board or two but I thought normal functionality returned after some time.

It doesn't really do any actual damage, basically as X said it knocks out electronics. Frying circuit boards etc. Yes without the fire, and the radiation fallout. Probably not something they want to use as it would knock out things like electricity to portions of the cities, a situation they are actively trying to avoid. Would be nice if they had something like that which could be localized to a building or two, knock out some of the media and other communications without disturbing the basic infrastructure civilians depend on.

A 1.4 Megaton bomb launched about 400 kilometers above Kansas would destroy most of the unprotected electronics in the entire Continental United States.
