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.'

If there is evidence of this it will be covered up
Who’d a thunk... terrorists in America... naaaaa
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.
And blowing up chemical factories.
They will blame Bush.
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.
Of course, that goes without saying!
Who does the IRSNSADOJFBI investigate first? Bible thumping, gun toting , Conservative Americans.
If only the NSA had the ability to wiretap and collect data without warrants they could stop thi... Oh wait never mind.
This shows we need surveillance cameras to cover all forest land to prevent this. /s
Would not be surprised if the recent fires in CO WERE SET.
Tea Party folks with Bic lighters?
That is why the “new media” has stepped up to the plate.
