Neocon mouthpiece channel Fox News continues to run programming
today suggesting that Al Qaeda terrorists may have infiltrated
the US and started fires in California that have devastated acres
of land and have forced one million people from their homes over
the past week.
While there is no direct evidence whatsoever to
back up the claims, Fox has pointed to information extracted four
years from a so called Al Qaeda detainee whom it is claimed told
the FBI that there was a plot to start forest fires.
The memo noted that investigators couldn't determine
whether the detainee was telling the truth.
The Fox analysts also reveled in providing wannabe
terrorists with some tips stating:
"What a cost effective means of terrorism,
if, you know, a Jihadi group wanted to cause a maximum amount
of carnage, all you really need here, we don't know if an explosive
device was involved, all you really need here is some kerosene
and a lighter."

said they did not know whether he was connected to any of the
FBI agents confirmed that a huge fire in the town of Santiago
in Orange County that destroyed 10 homes was started on purpose
in two different places.
A £35,000 reward was offered for information to trace
the arsonists today as a break in the weather finally allowed
firefighters to make progress after virtually conceding defeat
to the series of wildfires that have been fanned by fierce winds.
On his MSNBC show last night, Keith Olbermann added
the details that the original story in the Arizona Republic about
the wildfires memo was not being "updated" as Fox claimed
and was written by someone who no longer even works there.
Earlier this year the Washington
Times reported that forest fires in Arizona were
started by illegal alien arsonists from Mexico. The Times also
exposed how illegals also set fire to security observation posts
and attacked border patrol agents by throwing flaming grapefruit
sized rocks, firebombs and Molotov cocktails at them.
According to the Times the fires were set as a distraction
by smugglers of aliens and drugs who then simply walk through
the middle of active firefighting operations.
More than 1,500 homes and more than 700 square miles
of land have been scorched across five counties, from Ventura
in the north all the way down to Mexico in the current California
fires. The office of emergency services said 28,000 homes were
