Expert warns terrorists may be setting wildfires across American West
Washington Examiner ^ | June 16, 2013 | MARK TAPSCOTT

Dr. Rachel Ehrenfeld of the New York-based American Center for Democracy's Economic Warfare Institute warns that last July "al-Qaeda's English-language online magazine, Inspire, published an article called 'It Is of Your Freedom to Ignite a Firebomb,' which featured instructions on how to build an incendiary bomb to light forests on fire.

"A few months later, Russia's security (FSB) chief, Aleksandr Bortnikov warned, 'al-Qaeda was complicit in recent forest fires in Europe' as part of the terrorists' 'strategy of a thousand cuts.' Bortnikov spoke of 'extremist sites [that] contained detailed instructions of waging the forest jihad and stressed that such a method had proved itself effective as it inflicted both physical and moral damage, needed little training or investment and it was extremely hard for police to find and apprehend the arsonists.'

That’s the first thing I thought when I heard that officials were certain that the fires where not natural.

Much as I hate to see the willful destruction of anyone’s property, the idea of Terrorists’ culpability may get up the noses of some Colorado Liberals.

They’ll have to re-arrange some of your mental furniture, I guess.

Just a small outcome of having an open-border society, with a welfare state (so that undocumented terrorists can get tax-payer funded cars, gas, matches, maps).

But for the idiots liberal greenies who inhibit forest management, that fire would have been a crawling yawner.

As long as the left and the media can blame it on ‘global warming’ and Bush, we will hear nothing of it in the media.

Look at all the “fires” they’ve been starting around the country lately - Boston bombings, nosing around water supply, planes, the Canadian border train, and now this.
