Expert warns terrorists may be setting wildfires across American West

I’m no “expert” on this, but I sure think this is the case. We had too many fires start in one day in Colorado. And one year ago (two weeks shy of 1 year) we had the Waldo Canyon fire that started less than 15 miles SW of Black Forest. That fire was “human caused” as is the Black Forest fire.

~~Defender of Faith~Guardian of Truth~~

Colorado‘s Black Forest fire is barely contained at latest reports and has killed at least two people while consuming hundreds of homes and other structures and forcing the evacuation of more than 38,000 people, but a dozen other significant fires are also burning across the country, according to the National Interagency Fire Center.

Colorado has two other active fires besides the Black Forest blaze, while New Mexico has five, California and Oregon each have two, and Idaho has one. The NIFC has counted 19,472 fires through June 14, compared with 24,198 for the same Jan. 1-June 14 period in 2012.

 

The NIFC’s historical data shows suggests no consistent pattern of increase or decrease of during the past decade, but wildfires can be categorized in a variety of ways and some national security experts warn that terrorists associated with al Qaeda and other radical Muslim outfits view such…

  1. Gut check!

    I can’t really imagine Islamic terrorists running around the wilds of the American West setting forest fires. More likely, I would not be surprised if the government starts branding Americans who are careless with fire as terrorists. Here in Alaska, we’ve had forest fires started by hot ammunition, fire crackers, idiots dumping their bricquettes in the black spruce forest. I can just see the government turning that from an accident to a crime to terrorism. It fits their narrative.

    • Well, I suppose not living between the two fires like I do, not hearing the local news like I do, knowing the community loke I do, knpwing the sheriff like I do, and knowing the intelligence community like I do probably puts you at a disadvantage for seeing the whole situation, like I do…..

    • You may very well be correct, but that does not mean there is not some validity to my theory. It works to the government’s advantage to have us looking for terrorists behind every bush so that we then feel that we need the government to protect us at a time when all reason says we ought to be scaling back on the size and power of government at all levels but certainly at the federal level.

  2. Never said your theory didn’t have validity. This has nothing to do with “government advantage” either. In fact, the “government” hasn’t said anything about it. As a matter of fact the words “terrorist” and “terrorism” haven’t been used at all in this state about these fires. The media, the local and state authorities are being VERY CAREFUL not to point any fingers ANYWHERE. Not at a mistake, not at arson, all they are calling this is “human caused”.

    Both the fire last year and this year….

    Not sure if you went and read the whole, original article, but here’s a quote out of it. These are not US “experts” saying this:

    “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.’

    I’m also not sure if you’re aware of “Inspire Magazine” – you know the “magazine for terrorists”? Here’s a little article about that:

    http://www.algemeiner.com/2013/06/17/fire-wars-forest-jihad-in-america/

    So, this is not something any of us just “pulled out of our asses”. Terrorists have planned such things, they have attempted such things and they have accomplished such things already. Any “weapon” they can use that would kill many, destroy much they will use.

    With all of that said, we don’t NEED the government to “protect” us. The fact IS with all this NSA and IRS crap it’s pretty damned obvious they haven’t stopped things like Boston…. funny that.
