FBI Sent Alert on Al Qaeda Forest Fire Plot
http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,91735,00.html

Saturday, July 12, 2003

PHOENIX, Arizona ? The FBI (search) alerted law enforcement agencies last month that an Al Qaeda (search) terrorist now in detention had talked of masterminding a plot to set a series of devastating forest fires around the western United States.

Rose Davis (search), a spokeswoman for the National Interagency Fire Center (search) in Boise, Idaho, told The Associated Press that officials there took note of the warning but didn't see a need to act further on it.

The contents of the June 25 memo from the FBI's Denver office were reported Friday by The Arizona Republic. Davis declined to share a copy of the memo and an FBI spokeswoman in Denver didn't immediately return a telephone call.

Is Smokey the Bear now on the Homeland Security payroll? This is just too f******* ridiculous for comedy.

1. Bulls**t. I saw this on fox teevee this morning and was vomiting
at the apparent seriousness with which these insipid morons were 'discussing' this hilarious propaganda.

If anyone is stupid enough to believe some al queda operatives are going to plant remote control devices deep in the wilderness, flee the country and then detonate the devices to create a wildfire, well then don't even bother doing anything other than reading the national enquirer.... in fact, the NE has more reliable stories.
