I'm not sure how many of the last year's arsonists were actually terrorist elements. What is certain is that this announcement will bring the arsonists of every stripe a feeling of empowerment. They can light fires with the certainty that there is insufficient ability to put them out.
There are parties within Homeland Security that are inclined to believe that a campaign of massive wildfires in the west is part of the jihadi agenda.

Excellent point...to do massive damage, a terrorist wouldn't even need to smuggle dirty bomb components across the Mexican border, he would only need to bring a matchbook to one of our National Parks, which have been allowed to become terribly overgrown with underbrush and deadwood thanks to the policies put forth by shrill and hysterical, anti-American "environmental" groups.
